Welcome to author Elle Brownlee, who’s joining us today to introduce her new book, Staggered Cove Station, the latest addition to the Dreamspun Desires house line from Dreamspinner Press.
Hello, hello! I’m Elle Brownlee and it’s great to be here to share something about my latest book with you. Staggered Cove Station is a romantic suspense with hunky Coast Guard heroes, and I couldn’t be happier about that.
Is there anything better than being able to procrastinate writing and/or editing because you have such important inspiration board pinning work to do? NOPE. I love assembling images for each of my books and go on the hunt as soon as I start working on a new manuscript.
I always make a private board first and throw everything I can think of (and more) onto it as I write. I revisit the board full of images often, looking at tableaus and landscapes, details and atmospheric pictures, cuddles and kisses that put me in the mood for the story. With each visit I tend to tweak this or that pin, search out a few more, and on it grows. Then of course before I share it with the world I have another editing job to do–paring the board down to the best images and the essentials!–but that’s just as fun to me as the initial and ongoing search.
So I’m glad to invite you into this part of my process and check out my Staggered Cove Station Pinterest board (and while you’re there you can browse my boards from previous books!).
Hope you enjoy the inspiration/images–and the read!
About the Book
Rescues are wild in the Alaskan terrain. So is romance.
Sun-kissed California guardsman Dan Farnsworth might be at home in the water, but he’s out of his element at remote, rugged, and freezing Staggered Cove Station. Acclimating proves hard enough, but he’s also digging into how the station’s previous rescue swimmer was lost at sea. Was it an operation gone bad… or something more sinister? Add to that instant tension between him and his partner, no-nonsense Alaska-born Karl Radin, and Dan has his hands full.
As his investigation heats up, so does the attraction between Dan and Karl—even if they don’t completely trust each other. But as suspicious events escalate to sabotage, Dan starts to fear he and Karl won’t get the chance to become more than reluctant coworkers.

About the Author
Elle Brownlee has always followed her creative, adventuring spirit. Growing up she loved westerns and taking long hikes. On these explorations she’d craft miniature worlds with moss and rocks while making up stories about everything that happened there. This often included dashing cowboy heroes. As an adult, not a lot has changed. She still loves westerns, long hikes, and allowing her imagination to roam. Usually with a pot of tea at her elbow. Her romances feature flawed but relatable characters in immersive settings, told with wit, tenderness, and a sly note of sarcasm. Though a cynic in many ways, Elle believes love can conquer all. Every story is a little bit naughty, a whole lot of nice, and will always end with happily ever after.
