Dr. Lissa Morgan has had a crush on her best friend’s older brother
since they were kids, but handsome, brooding Cam Taylor has never given
her a second glance. When Cam unexpectedly shows up on Lissa’s doorstep
bleeding and bruised, his personal life in shambles, things between them
take a steamy turn. After an incredible weekend with the sweet, sexy
doctor, Cam realizes what he’s been missing. But he’s run from intimacy
his whole life, sure he doesn’t deserve a woman like Lissa. He’s doing
her a favor by walking away – or so he tells himself. Frustrated and
hurt by Cam’s distance, Lissa must nonetheless rely on his private
security firm when an annoying admirer becomes a threat. The more time
Cam spends with Lissa, the faster his defenses crumble. When the
disturbed stalker finally makes his move, Cam will do whatever it takes
to save the woman who’s slowly healing his wounded soul. Lost and Found
is the third book in the Tactical Solutions International series but can
be read as a stand-alone.

Author Interview: Maggie Clare, author of Lost and Found

  1. What was the inspiration for the story?
While Lost and Found is the third book in the Tactical Solutions International series, I actually wrote parts of it first. I’d just finished the final draft of the second book in my science fiction series, and I wanted to take a break from that story for a little while. 
As often happens, key scenes from a new story will take shape in my mind, choreographed out like action sequences on television. There is one scene in Lost and Found where Lissa is trying to escape from the stalker. She sprays him with a bottle of bathroom cleaner and runs through the house, only to find all the doors padlocked. Even though there wasn’t much of a story yet, this scene was pulse-pounding and terrifying enough that I really wanted to keep it! 
After just a few weeks of working on my new idea, I had to return to writing my science fiction series, and Lost and Found sat in my files for about a year. When I eventually began developing the TSI series, I dusted off that partial manuscript, gave Cam a new and better backstory, and turned it into book 3.
  1. Lost and Found is set against a military backdrop. Why did you choose that as the setting?
The company founded by Cam and his buddy A.J. is a private security and military contracting firm. In this line of work, danger, adventure, and intrigue are always just around the corner. A military background made sense for most of the guys in the stories, and some of them actually served together. It made for great backstory, and they all needed the skillset a military career would provide in order to be the heroes I needed! 
  1. I’ve noticed that each installment in the Tactical Solutions International series features different characters. Do any of your featured characters return in future installments? Do you ever give your readers an update about what has happened to characters from previous books in the series?
As with many romantic suspense series, readers will get either a preview of new characters who will likely be featured in a future book of their own, or an update on beloved characters whose tales have already been told. In this case, an early chapter of Lost and Found will take place at Jake and Fiona’s wedding (the cast from Sing for Me). Readers will also get a little check in on Mike and Lucia (cast of Run and Hide), since Mike is Fiona’s brother. 
  1. What is the significance of the title?
The title has a dual meaning. First, Cam pushes Lissa away rather strongly and almost loses his chance with her. Second, when Lissa is abducted by her stalker, she is lost to Cam and the police for days. Of course, there is a happy ending when she is found, and they both have found the love of a lifetime!
  1. What do you hope your readers take away from this book?
With any book I write, I want to tell a good story. I hope readers are entertained, absorbed, and come away feeling satisfied. I want to create characters who are multi-dimensional and who readers can fall in love with. 
Each one of my books also has some darker elements. In Lost and Found, in addition to the obvious stalker plot line, Cam has suffered a terrible trauma that he’s kept secret for years. When I add something like this to my stories, I try to do it with great care. While I aim to give all my couples a happily-ever-after, I also want to show that trauma has far-reaching consequences. Love helps heal, certainly, but it doesn’t erase everything.
  1. What’s next for Maggie Clare? What are you working on now?
I have outlined four more books in the series. If all goes as planned, Teagan, Fiona’s drummer, will have his story next, followed by A.J., Cam’s business partner, then Devon Marco, the mysterious TSI operative, and finally, Charlie, Jake’s best friend. Readers have asked for Alex’s story, and I actually have planned a spin-off series where he will be featured in the first book. 
Of course, it’s always possible that a new character will capture my imagination. I had no plans to write Mike’s story, but I had to once I finished Sing for Me. So, you really never know!
