 “Everyone I’ve ever loved has been taken from me and I can’t take the heartache anymore. It’s time to build that wall around my heart and let no one in, no exceptions.”

Ellie never did know her mother; before she turned twenty she lost her father in the line of duty; a freak accident stole her fiancé from her before they had a chance to start their life together. She wants answers, but now that she’s living in a new town and trying to start over, she’s finding that it’s not that easy. Maybe new surroundings are what she needs to make it easier to move on and forget all about her old life. It could have been…until he showed up.

“Having the sort of job that is as dangerous as what I do doesn’t allow for a personal life, no exceptions.”

Jack and his team of military misfits have seen their fair share of war zones and violent criminals. Skilled in precision rescue operations, they’ve traveled into some of the most terrifying countries and stood up to intimidating adversaries, but when a mentor of Jack’s calls them in for a favor that he is unable to turn down, he finds himself up against his most challenging fear of all…his heart. There is a fine line between getting close enough to do your job and getting so close that you get attached. That line used to be obvious, but now that he’s met her, things have blurred and priorities have shifted. Can he keep his feelings in check and still protect Ellie from an adversary more dangerous and twisted than she could ever imagine?







“And this…” I tossed the manila envelope back to the desk, “…is not a job. It’s a death sentence. My death sentence. I’m walking in blind. I mean, how do I know she’s not running from the law?”

Lou shook his head, his mouth contorting into a tight frown, and answered matter-of-factly, “She’s not. And why would that stop you?”

“How do I know for sure? How do you know for sure?” I challenged, making him smile.

Somehow, that irritated me even more. He was hiding something.

“Because I know,” he answered, lips pursed, eyes narrowing at me. He didn’t look away and neither did I. I wanted to know what he was thinking. What was he hiding? Unfortunately, he was going to make it difficult to find out.

I sighed, knowing that was the only answer I was going to get. “Is she hiding from her husband or boyfriend or something?”

“Most definitely not,” he answered with a heavy sigh, sadness flicking across his face.

This piqued my interest. And why was a small part of me so damn happy with that answer?

“Did she kill someone?” I figured I already knew the answer to this one, but I had to ask.

He chuckled. “Absolutely not.”

“What if she’s got the mob after her? Did she piss off a terrorist group?”

“So what if they are? So what if she did? You’ve been wrapped up in worse and handled it,” he answered quickly. “Stop with the stalling already, Jack. I need to know. Are. You. In.”

“Lou, I don’t help people against their will because if they won’t listen and do what I tell them to do, bad things happen. She doesn’t want me anywhere near her. She won’t even look at me, let alone talk to me. Ellie dodges me all day long. I tried to just talk to her like you asked me, but she avoids me like the plague and scurries off in the other direction. She looks at me like…like…”

“Like the frightened child she is,” Lou interrupted sighing.

A LITTLE INTERVIEW

Where do you write from? 
When I started, I wrote on a desktop we have, but that was hard because then I was separated from the family. I tried on my phone, got a Bluetooth keyboard which made it was portable. I could write on the couch, or outside, or take it camping, but it was frustrating as the apps I found to write with changed my formatting and fonts. I now have a laptop so I keep it handy and write where ever I want!
How long have you been writing and when did you start?
 I started writing in high school. A friend of mine and I would come up with plotlines and pass it back and forth.
Do you have any special routine you follow when you write? 
Only that I must have a snack, a drink (first I go for water, but when I get stuck out comes the wine), and sometimes music.
What was your favourite book when you were  a teen? 
This is totally out of the genre of what I write now, but I loved Watchers by Dean Koontz.
Who are your favorite authors? 
Hard to pick. There are so many. Dean Koontz. JM Darhower. TM Franklin. SL Scott. There are authors out there I have yet to read but are on my radar like Skye Turner, T.K. Leigh, Author M. Robinson…I know I’m missing some, but those are the ones that come to mind.
What do you like to do when you’re not writing? 
I like to spend time with my boys. We go camping in the winter out to the desert. I read when I can.
What are you working on now? 
Working on book 2 of my series.
