EXCERPT #2 from BLIND SIDED by Lindsay McKenna

Delos Series novella
COWBOY JUSTICE 12-pack, 4.5.16
cowboy-justice-12pack-header-new

“Raw pain shot up through Kara’s face as she sat down on a chair in the day care center, gripping her cellphone in her hand. Her attacker had left. Or had he? Warily, she looked around, but her gaze was fastened on the opened door and entrance to the day care area. Stunned and hurting after regaining consciousness, she’d crawled to the chair and pulled her phone from her pocket to call 9-1-1. Dizzy, her ears ringing, she tried without success to stop the blood from pouring out of her left nostril. It felt as if half her face had been ripped off. The heat, swelling, and pain making her whimper. She was hunched over, praying that someone, anyone, would get here fast to help her.

The woman on the 9-1-1 line said a Kenedy County sheriff’s cruiser was on its way. How far away was it though? Her hair hung like curtains on either side of her face as her bloody, slippery fingers carefully pressed against her nose. The pain was excruciating, so she stopped trying to examine the extent of her injury.

Shattered by the attack, Kara kept worrying that her assailant would come back. But everything was quiet in the day care center and out in the hall beyond it. The rain was slacking off, the thunder moving farther east, the storm passing quickly through the area. She heard the front door open and then close. Who was it? Her heart pounded hard in her chest. Was it the man coming back to finish her off? To kill her?

Stifling a cry, she straightened, tense in the chair, unable to walk much because her knees were feeling so weak. Her breath hitched as she saw a sheriff’s deputy appear in the entrance, his revolver drawn. A gasp tore from Kara—she couldn’t believe what she was seeing. The man wearing the black Stetson, dressed in a deputy’s uniform, was none other than Cade Patterson! She’d heard through the county grapevine that he’d come home two years earlier, but she had never run into him or seen him. His shoulders were so broad that she longed to simply lay her head on them and collapse into his arms. His light brown eyes were large, wide set, and assessing her, holding her distraught gaze.

“Kara!” He looked as shocked as she did. “What happened? Is there anyone else here?” he asked urgently, his head swiveling to take in the room.

“A man attacked me from behind…I-I don’t know why…” Her voice sounded young, like a scared child, not her normal alto tone. She saw that his eyes were filled with concern.

“Okay, stay where you are for a moment. I have to clear every room to make sure no one is still in here.”

She nodded. “I’m not going anywhere. I can’t walk. I’m dizzy.”

“I’ll be right back,” he promised.

Huge tears of relief squeezed out of her eyes. Kara wrapped her arms around herself, the blood dripping continuously down onto her white blouse, forever staining it. Cade was like a silent shadow, disappearing from her view as he moved down the hall, pistol drawn. Was her attacker still in here hiding? Waiting to jump her again? She felt so cold. So alone. And yet, Cade was here! He was the last person she’d ever expected to see and she was infinitely grateful it was him.

Kara had been hoping to see him on the street, maybe catch sight of him at the local diner or run into him at the grocery store. But she never had, until now. Gulping, hating the metallic taste of blood in her mouth, she swallowed, her stomach roiling.

“Kara?”

Cade’s voice was so close to her, she snapped her head up, gasping, not hearing him return to her side. He stood before her, sliding his revolver into the holster and safing it.

Her hand flew to her throat as she stared up at him. How tall he was! She remembered the boy of eighteen. That was the last time she’d seen him. Even though Cade had played football, the coach was always after him to put on more muscle, but he never had. Her gaze traveled up, from his narrow hips encased in dark blue gabardine trousers to the light khaki-colored shirt that stretched across his broad chest. And those proud, straight shoulders of his that looked as if they could carry the weight of the world on them. She knew from Cade’s hard, younger life, that he’d carried his mother who had been so broken by her husband’s unexpected death.

Words stuck in her tight throat as he crouched down close to her, placing his hand tentatively upon her upper right arm, his gaze melting into hers.

“Broken nose?” he asked gently.

“I-I think so…he hit me. That’s the last thing I remember.”

“I’ll call an ambulance,” he said, his hand reluctantly leaving her arm so he could make the call from his shoulder radio.

She looked beyond him, panicked, as he ended the call. “Is he still here, Cade?”

Shaking his head, he said, “No, no one’s here. We’re alone. Are you hurt anywhere else, Kara?”

Just the low warmth, the concern in his eyes, brought more tears. She choked and sobbed, “I-I don’t think so…I didn’t expect this…I don’t know who he was. He attacked me from behind. I got a look at him after I smashed his foot with my heel, just for a second before I tried to run from him.” Cade’s hand was stabilizing as he lightly moved it up and down her upper arm, as if to comfort her.

“We can cover all that later.”

“God, I wish my nose would quit bleeding.” She held up her bloodied fingers.

“Hold on,” Cade murmured, rising. He pulled out a white linen handkerchief from his back pocket, slipping it into her hand. “Press two fingers gently against the root of your nose and pinch the area as much as you can without causing yourself more pain. It should slow and stop the bleeding,” he said, crouching next to her once more.

Needing his comforting touch, she closed her eyes and held the handkerchief against her nose with one hand and pinched the root of her nose with the other. “I-I’m not hurt anywhere else. Bruised knees maybe, that’s all.”

Kara began to shake uncontrollably, barely holding herself together. Some of the bleeding was slowing down and that was good. Absorbing Cade’s masculine nearness, she felt like a thief stealing his light, his energy. Listening to the low timbre of his voice as he spoke to the Sarita dispatcher requesting a forensics team and back up, she once more felt that powerful swell of protection embracing her. And yet, Cade was not even touching her! Missing his hand on her arm, she needed to connect with him once again. It was a wild, unbidden thought and she couldn’t stop any of her rampant, twisting feelings from barreling through her right now.”

EXCERPT from: Blind Sided by Lindsay McKenna COWBOY JUSTICE 12-pack!

April 5, 2016

EXCERPT from Blind Sided by Lindsay McKenna
Delos Series novella
COWBOY JUSTICE 12-pack, 4.5.16
FB size BLIND SIDED by Lindsay McKenna

Outdoors, she heard the sudden pounding of small hailstones on the roof as she continued to clean up the huge day care facility. The last thing she’d do after sweeping and mopping, would be to arrange the desks for tomorrow morning. Everything had to be clean and ready to go for the nine a.m. arrival of the children on Saturday morning. She saw a flash of lightning so close that she winced, closing her eyes.

Suddenly, a man’s hand wrapped around Kara’s mouth, yanking her backwards off her feet. Her arms flailed and pain raced across her jaw where he gripped her. Kara tried to scream, but the man slid his other thick, hairy arm around her waist, pinning her against him.

“Shut up, bitch!” he snarled into her ear. His breath smelled of onions, making Kara want to gag. She struggled, kicking out, her arms trapped beneath the man’s powerfully muscled arm. He began jerking her side to side, and she felt as if he were trying to rip her head off her shoulders. Her mind reeled as he continued to drag her backwards, keeping her off balance. She heard him curse at her in Spanish.

“I’ll kill you. Now, stand still!” He pinched her nose shut with his thumb and forefinger, his hand still across her mouth, effectively shutting off her ability to breathe.

Gurgling in terror, her throat aching with a silent scream, her vision began to dim, and she fought harder, knowing she was going to die.

Oh, God! No! No!

Black dots began to dance before her eyes and she began to pass out. Desperately, Kara lifted the heel of her boot, slamming it with all her might into the man’s foot. He howled with pain, letting her go.

Free! She was free! Barely conscious, Kara fell to her knees, then scrambled to get away on all fours. She heard him cursing. Outdoors, another thunderclap shook the air.

Escape! I have to escape!

Air exploded from her mouth as she wobbled to her feet, weaving, her balance off as she turned toward her attacker. And then, she got her first look at him. He was a stranger. His brown eyes were dark with fury, his black hair was short and close-cropped, and he was barely taller than she. He appeared to be in his late twenties to her. He had black tattoos around his thick, bull-like neck and down both his powerful arms. A gold ring was hanging from his left earlobe. He wore a sleeveless white t-shirt, showing off the bulky muscling, scaring her even more. There was no doubt this man lifted very heavy weights at a gym. His jeans were well worn and his combat boots, scuffed. He looked like a soldier to her. She saw a knife in a sheath against his left calf and the pistol he wore in a drop holster around his right thigh. The only thing missing was a set of dog tags around his neck. Instead, he wore a thick gold chain.

Shrieking, Kara tried to dodge his hand as his fist closed, his arm drawn back to strike her. Her mind wasn’t working right, deprived of oxygen, sodden with adrenaline. All she knew was that he was trying to kill her.

Why? Why is this horrible man trying to hurt me?

The moment his fist connected with the left side of her face, Kara heard a snapping sound, as if a huge branch of a tree had been broken inside her head, and everything went black. The last thing she remembered was sailing through the air, her arms wind-milling. And then, nothing.

NEW YORK TIMES article featuring: Lindsay McKenna, Chris Keniston and Susan Stoker has arrived!!

With Romance Novels Booming, Beefcake Sells, but It Doesn’t Pay

This corner of the book world is red hot and among the most innovative, with e-books and apps, and it needs a steady stream of fresh-faced cover models.

MARCH 30, 2016

Jason Baca, model for Lindsay McKenna's HOLD MY HEART, is on the front page of the New York Times!

Jason Baca, model for Lindsay McKenna’s HOLD MY HEART, is on the front page of the New York Times!

In early January, 2016, Lindsay McKenna, Chris Keniston and Susan Stoker embarked on a journey with SAVED BY A SEAL, an 3-book “first in series” anthology with the focus of giving all proceeds earned to america’svetdog.org. We wanted to give back to our military vets. We each took a “first-in-series” book and donated it to our anthology. These all romantic suspense. It is only 99 cents and our whole focus was doing this for this vet charity. On 2.6.16, we put the anthology up on all major platforms except Google.

GET A COPY OF THE ARTICLE NOW!!

Digital article available: 3.30.16

or

SUNDAY New York Times!
4.3.16 Sunday New York Times the article is available also — pick up a copy!

This may be the one and only time our names are ever mentioned in a New York Times article ! Now isn’t this just too cool? And it’s for such a great cause: helping our vets. The three of us couldn’t be prouder. Plus, Laura Holson, the reporter who wrote the piece, was VERY kind in putting up the info on the charity. She didn’t have to do that—but bless her, too.

SBAS is our anthology and ALL proceeds earned from sales of it go straight to www.americasvetdogs.org.  Be a part of this win-win situation!  Our military vets deserve our help.

Read down to the part about the making of a cover and find Chris Keniston and myself, Lindsay McKenna — we worked jointly on the cover. Susan Stoker, in the meantime, was on an ocean cruise, unavailable, so the task fell to us to create it without her valuable input. We chose Jason Baca as our model. Tammy Seidick of http://www.TammySeidickDesigns.com, took our direction and did a fabulous job. We made a good team. Chris should be lauded for making the cover what it looks like in the final presentation — I just put in ideas, suggestions here and there ;-). We almost forgot to put the dog tags on Jason—that was my biggest add to the cover, haha.

We all think it’s a great cover!

Fingers crossed the publicity gets more money into the service dog program for disabled veterans ! Remember for only 99 cents to tell all your friends ! All proceeds from the sale of Saved By A SEAL go to http://www.americasvetdogs.org, our charity that will receive all that it makes so that some deserving vet will get one of these wonderfully trained dogs to help her or him in their daily life.

Please SHARE. If you haven’t picked up a copy of our anthology for 99 cents—do so. You won’t be sorry. And all your money goes for a dog for a vet. It’s a win-win, no matter what way you parse it!

JASON BACA IS NOW THE REIGNING KING OF ROMANCE BOOK COVERS. MOVE OVER FABIO!

February 14, 2016

Hello Dear Readers!
First of all, Happy Valentine’s Day!!
Valentine banner

Fabio, darling model of the romance covers during the 1980’s and 1990’s, before he retired, showed up on a total of 460 romance covers in our romance industry! An amazing amount!

Fabio (left), darling of the romance cover models has been replaced by Jason Aaaron Baca (right)

How synchronistic that Jason Aaron Baca now wears the crown as King of the Cover Models for having the most on romance book covers:  461.  Fabio, darling decades ago, had 460.  Congratulations, Jason!

Jason Aaron Baca now wears the crown for appearing on the most romance covers in our Industry 2.14.2016.

In 2016 a very popular cover model is Jason Baca from Saratoga California , just broke Fabio’s long-standing record. On 2.10.16, the San Francisco Chronicle did an article on how Jason is now THE top romance cover model in our Romance Industry!

http://www.sfchronicle.com/style/article/Saratoga-man-now-top-romance-cover-model-6822011.php

And something for Lindsay McKenna, Chris Keniston and Susan Stoker to celebrate is their anthology SAVED BY A SEAL, was Jason’s 461st book cover!! We were shocked to find this out, and the synchronicity couldn’t have been sweeter because their anthology of first-in-series books was an effort to help a wounded vet receive a service dog to help him or her make their daily life a little easier. Jason’s father was in the Vietnam war and we honor his service as well. It makes this book cover sweeter for all the above reasons.
Authors of SBAS copy
Lindsay served in the U.S. Navy as a meteorologist in the air wing. Susan Stoker was an Army wife and Chris has a deep, abiding respect for our military personnel and the sacrifices they make for our great country.

Jason has done 461 romance covers breaking Fabio’s record. Why should I care you ask? Guess whose cover is number 461? That’s right. SAVED BY A SEAL is the cover that broke Fabio’s record!

The authors of SAVED BY A SEAL, sure hope this sells more books for the Disabled Vets ! – I think it’s rather cool that a charity anthology romance book cover broke Fabio’s record! Even better? All the proceeds for their book go to America’s vetdogs.org!

SbaS_Twitter 2 copy

Buying our book for .99 cents, all ‘first-in-series’ books, have all proceeds going to vetdogs.org to help buy a service dog for a deserving wounded military vet.

ROMANCE COVER MODEL JASON AARON BACA BREAKS FABIO’S RECORD of 460 COVERS with #461, SAVED BY A SEAL by Lindsay McKenna, Chris Keniston and Susan Stoker!!

ROMANCE COVER MODEL JASON AARON BACA BREAKS FABIO’S RECORD of 460 COVERS!

Jason Aaron Baca poses for the San Francisco Chronical after breaking Fabio's cover model record of 460.  He has just surpassed Fabio with his 461st book cover:  Saved by a SEAL by Lindsay McKenna, Chris Keniston and Susan Stoker!  Congratulations, Jason!

Saved by a SEAL by Lindsay McKenna, Chris Keniston and Susan Stoker is his 461st cover!!!

The San Francisco Chronical celebrates Jason's incredible record of 461 romance covers!
The San Francisco Chronicle celebrates Jason’s incredible record of 461 romance covers!

Lindsay McKenna, Chris Keniston, and Susan Stoker want to celebrate Jason Aaron Baca’s momentous accomplishment by breaking Fabio’s cover record! We couldn’t be prouder of him (he’s a very nice guy). We want you to know that as authors of SAVED BY A SEAL, which is Jason’s 461st cover (the book that broke Fabio’s record of 460 book covers) that you might be interested in the ‘story behind the story’ about this book.

To get the full story, go to the San Francisco Chronicle, 2.10.16 evening edition:

http://www.sfchronicle.com/style/article/Saratoga-man-now-top-romance-cover-model-6822011.php

The three of us want to give back to our military men and women who are suffering from PTSD. We chose http://www.vetdogs.org, a 501 non-profit charity who trains service dogs for our vets who need support. ALL the money from SAVED BY A SEAL goes directly to this charity and NOT to us.

SbaS_Twitter 2 copy

We want to thank the San Francisco Chronicle for being a part in this wonderful, heartfelt mission of ours (I’m a US Navy vet, Susan Stoker was an Army wife for over a decade and Chris Keniston is a super patriot who believes in helping our wounded vets). This was a mission of heart and supporting our brave vets. Jason’s father was a Vietnam vet, too, by the way.

So, we find this a wonderful symphony of synchronicity with an HEA–happily ever after–for our charity. For .99 cents, your subscribers can download a copy and know that the money is going to http://www.vetdog.org. I can’t think of a nicer, more wonderful celebration for everyone involved.

By purchasing the .99 cent anthology, SAVED BY A SEAL, you are helping us to get a service dog for a military vet. Be part of this circling of giving from our hearts.

IF YOU COULD CHANGE A WOUNDED MILITARY VET’S LIFE FOR .99 CENTS? WOULD YOU?

This is a non-profit charity that trains service dogs for our military vets. Your 99 cents can help us purchase a service dog for a vet. We need your help and support.

Those of you who love to support our military vets who have sacrificed so much for all of us, can use your help.

Just 99 cents and you not only are adding to the amount to buy a service dog for a vet, but you also get three great ebooks by three wonderful story tellers: Lindsay McKenna, Chris Keniston and Susan Stoker.

Authors of SBAS copy

Support our vets. We three authors have given our own money to put this book, SAVED BY A SEAL, together. We receive NOTHING monetarily from it. All proceeds go to http://www.vetdogs.org

Nowadays? .99 cents doesn’t seem to go very far. But you know what? It can help buy a service dog for a man or woman who desperately needs that wonderful animal in their life to help them make their life a little easier.

PLEASE SHARE this and ask your friends and family to donate .99 cents to an important cause: caring for our military vets.

Here are the authors donating their books and time to ensure that a wounded military vet can receive a service dog to help her or him in their daily life. LEFT TO RIGHT: Chis Keniston, Lindsay McKenna and Susan Stoker

And the BEST thing about this is that ALL Author Proceeds to benefit DISABLED VETS via the Service Dog program America’s VetDogs.

Yup. We aren’t making a DIME on this.

So please, even just to support VetDogs, even if you don’t care about the stories, can’t you spare a buck?
