Titanium Security Series is Here!
A big thank you to Cynthia for hosting me here again today! I’m thrilled to announce the launch of a new romantic suspense series with the release of book one, Ignited.
I’m often inspired by things I see on the news, and the start of my new Titanium Security Series was no different. You might remember hearing the story about a Pakistani girl named Malala Yousafzai, who was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman for promoting girls’ education in the highly contested tribal region and the Swat Valley. Thankfully, she not only survived, but her story triggered immediate outrage around the globe. And, I’m happy to report that she’s publishing a book about her life later this year, reportedly for around three million dollars. I love the poetic justice of that, because her story lit a fire inside of me.
You see, in addition to being an author, I’m also a Board and Committee member of a scholarship program that provides undergraduate degrees for underprivileged high school graduates. Most of our students have endured terrible things in their lives and yet somehow found the strength to persevere and overcome any adversity thrown at them. Just like Malala. Her story touched me and I knew I had to write something about the issues at hand. Hence, Ignited and the rest of the series was born.
Blurb: When her father is murdered by a Taliban cell in the tribal regions of Pakistan, Khalia Patterson reluctantly steps into his shoes to carry on the legacy of Fair Start Foundation, a non-profit group dedicated to furthering the education of girls. There she meets Hunter Phillips, the ex-SEAL and head of her Titanium security team, and quickly learns that coming to Pakistan might prove to be a deadly decision.
Battling demons of his own, Hunter grudgingly leads Khalia’s protective detail as a favor to his boss. From their first meeting it’s clear she’s going to be trouble, and that the cell that killed her father is hell bent on taking her out as well. Keeping her alive is one of the toughest assignments he’s ever faced, yet through one harrowing situation after another she continually impresses him with her strength and inner courage. Even though he fights his feelings for her, it’s a losing battle. And when the job is over, he doesn’t know how he’ll let her go.
I’m giving away a digital copy of Ignited (or winner’s choice of my backlist) to a commenter here on the blog, contest ending Saturday at 5 pm EST.
Any questions for me? Would love to chat with you about the new book and series.
Update: Do you know what’s better than one giveaway? How about two? In addition to the digital copy of IGNITED, commenters are also going to be entered into a contest to win a $10 Amazon.com gift card. Good luck!!
