Blog Tour, Giveaway & Guest Post - Heroes With Hearts of Steel Tour with Kym Roberts

Heroes with Hearts of Steal Blog Tour

Today I am thrilled to have Kym Roberts on the blog! I met Kym a while ago on Facebook and was so excited for her when she mentioned that she was going to be working on her books. So I quickly messaged her to let her know to sign me up to support her however I could. I was lucky enough to receive an advanced copy of Handled By Officer and fell in love with Walt and loved the story (you'll find a link to my review later in the post!).
Thank you, Kym for stopping by! And without further ado....some words from Kym on her heroes...

Hi Margaret!

WELCOME to my blog continuity with four heroes!  That’s right four men full of ego, brawn and looks that could kill — me:)  I invited my guys out to dinner, none of them knew why or who else would be joining us, but they agreed to meet me at my favorite hotel for dinner, the Hotel Del Coronado on Coronado Island off the coast of San Diego, CA.  They trusted me, completely.  Well they used to, after tonight I might be on at least one hit list.  I've already introduced Walt from Handled By Officer and Makaio & Pai from Dead On Arrival, on my earlier stops on my tour, but trust me, there’s plenty here to get an idea of what all of these men are like. So sit back and enjoy the ride, cause it’s about to get wild!

Pai heard my thoughts about the perfect woman for Walt, he knew what I was planning for the Kansas City officer who taught defense tactics at the police academy.  He saw Kiley in my mind’s eye, the perfect woman with curls gone wild for the man standing next to me. Walt didn't stand a chance and Pai wasn't happy with my meddling.

“Freedom to choose is the basis for all lasting relationships.” He argued.

My spine prickled. “I never said it wasn't.”

“Yet, still you meddle.”

“And what do you call what you’re doing?” I glanced at Walt whose feet began to shuffle.

Pai smiled, “Looking out for my fellow man who has a female about to do him wrong.”

Walt looked at both of us confusion and mistrust clouding his eyes.  He wasn't used to being in the dark and not understanding a situation. He had mad skills when it came to reading people, but Pai was different.

There was one thing Pai didn't get. Yes, Walt was happy, yet incomplete. If I didn't introduce him to Kiley, Walt would end up a lonely bachelor at the age of fifty who regretted his decision not to have a family.  Walt wasn't the bachelor type, before tragedy made him believe he was.

At over six and a half feet tall Pai towered over me, but what I found more intimidating than his height, was the fact that he could read my mind. At the moment, I was beginning to wonder why I’d given him that ability – I should have written Dead On Arrival with Pai’s extra sensory skills beginning to develop. Now I saw my mistake a little too late.

Pai’s cousin, Makaio, came to my rescue, standing up for me when he shouldn't. “She’s never done you wrong before.”

Pai’s blue eyes narrowed enough to put Walt on high alert. “From my perspective, I’d say both of you had a hand in doing me wrong.”

Now the real can of worms was open. I’d purposely hurt these two cousins. Once inseparable, they no longer spoke to one another … thanks to me. Makaio’s shoulders straightened, Walt took a step back, unsure who he should be protecting and what enemy he should be defending against. He looked to me for answers.

Pai would usually laugh this whole situation off. He didn't do violence, he was the big softy, the teddy bear made of rock hard muscle. And maybe if Makaio hadn't been there to remind him of his recent pain, Pai would have been warmer. But I seriously couldn't blame him.  If our roles were reversed, I wouldn't have accepted the dinner invite, or even spoken to him ever again.

Pai, was a better person than me.

But he wasn't quite finished dropping the bombs that were hidden in the dark recesses of my mind.

“And he’s not the only one she has plans for, cuz.” Pai’s gaze returned to me. Waiting.

Makaio also looked at me, his sexy brown eyes turning dark and stormy.

My last hero arrived, exactly the way I expected him to … in silence. “When you create a den of lions, someone’s bound to get hurt. But the question remains, will anyone survive?”

All three men flinched and turned to look at the newcomer who somehow crossed into our little garden area and stood within inches of our circle without one of us hearing him. His warning put the state of alert in the room on high. Tall and lean, his face looked unusually tight, probably because he’d received the worst dose of pain out of all of them. Yet here he stood, tall and proud, baring the physical pain so many of our service men and women had before him, and would after him.

He was an All-American hero, and I loved him for everything he’d sacrificed in the name of country. But he was about to hate what I had planned more than all the rest of them combined.

If someone hurts you deep to the core of your heart, do you forgive and forget? Walk away from the relationship, or stay put but never allow that person to forget what they've done?

I hope you enjoyed the introduction to my heroes and will enter my rafflecopter below for a chance to win multiple prizes.


Three career paths resonated for Kym during her early childhood: a detective, an investigative reporter, and…a nun. Being a nun, however, dropped by the wayside when she became aware of boys—they were the spice of life she couldn't deny.

In high school her path was forged when she took her first job at a dry cleaners and met every cop in town, especially the lone female police officer in patrol. From that point on there was no stopping Kym’s pursuit of a career in law enforcement—even if she had to duct tape rolls of coins to her waist to meet the weight requirements to be hired.

Kym followed her dream and became a detective that fulfilled her desire to be an investigative reporter, with one extra perk—a badge. Promoted to sergeant Kym spent the majority of her career in SVU. She retired from the job reluctantly when her husband drug her kicking and screaming to another state, but writing continued to call her name, at least in her head.

Handled By Officer

Women Behind the Badge, #1

Recruit officer Kiley Gibbons has walked in her twin sister’s shadow her entire life—born two minutes after, she’s five inches shorter with curls gone wild and the exact opposite of her outgoing, athletic sister. But that’s exactly why she’s the one woman who caught Walt Raynham’s eye, and threatens his future in the tactical unit.

Officer Raynham is everything Kiley needs to distract her from the daily grind at the police academy, too bad his drop dead gorgeous body is wearing the uniform of her boss. And when the academy is finally behind her, Kiley must find the strength to walk away from the man she shouldn’t touch.

But when her friend’s death leaves Kiley with two children to raise and a custody battle she just might lose, there’s only one man strong enough to step in and fill the role of her fiancĂ©. Now Kiley’s not sure she wants to resist the temptation Walt causes, and he’s not so sure a family would be such a bad thing. Together, they discover love and an engagement of convenience could be unstoppable force for happily ever-after…until a killer has another idea that may cost them everything they didn't want.

Dead On Arrival

A Malia Fern Mystery, #1

Catch the Wave of a wild new paranormal mystery series that will leave you locked in the middle of the impact zone!

Bikinis and board shorts are all in a day’s work for surf instructor Malia Fern. Life is good on the island of Kaua’i, even if her social calendar is lacking and a big surf company is droppin’ in to steal her customers. When Malia stumbles upon the body of tourist who speaks to her from his sandy grave, life as she knows it disappears in the outgoing tide.

She didn’t expect to find herself investigating his death, she has no experience, nor any desire to work in the family business of law enforcement, but that’s exactly what she’s doing because the victim keeps asking for help and a group of mystical Menehune men need her protection.  If she knew how to offer it, things would be a whole lot easier.

To make matters worse, her love life is out of control. Makaio Natua, the forbidden bad boy cop, is everything she wants and his charming, security specialist cousin, Alapai Lincoln, is everything she needs. What could be worse than meeting the two of them at the same time? A curse designed to control her future.

With life turning wacky, Malia is determined to discover if the victim’s death was an accident, a dope deal gone bad, or something more sinister than she could possibly imagine, because this time her last big wipe out may leave her Dead On Arrival.

Coming Soon!

Dead Man's Carve

A Tickled to Death Mystery, #1

"There's nothing wooden about Dead Man's Carve.  Roberts mingles a sparkling, unique voice with a great old-fashioned mystery."Wendy Lyn WatsonMysteries a la ModePet Boutique Mysteries (as Annie Knox)
Rilee Dust isn't your typical wood carver, she’s young and making a go of it in the small village of Tickle Creek, Oregon. She’s also the only one in town who isn't determined to get rid her strip club neighbor. Everyone else, however, is ready to evict the Girls, Girls, Girls.

When a dog adopts her and turns her life upside down, Rilee’s not so sure it’s a good thing. Especially when he leads her to a moose, a man and a dead body. Because the moose kicked her butt, the man saved her life and the dead body is one of her customers.

Now Rilee’s smack dab in the middle of all the small town politics with a killer on the loose who has an ax to grind. And Rilee just may be the next victim to have her name carved in stone.
