EXCLUSIVE Excerpt with image

“Gage Hunter tried to swallow his impatience. The SEALs had split up; he had moved with three of them to the other side of the ridge. They’d gone through the night fighting ankle to knee-deep snow. He was cold, his fingers numb, even with the protective gloves on his hands. The stars blinked above them in the night sky. It was 0400 by the time they’d gone down four thousand feet lower and onto another trail using their GPS.”

3. On Fire, HQN, Ebook only, Shadow Warriors Series, Director’s Cut to Taking Fire
Pub. date: 3.1.2015. On all major ebook platforms

I am working with Harlequin to do something rather innovative for my many loyal readers. I got a lot of emails begging me to right a novella epilogue for Never Surrender (Bay and Gabe, the main characters). I did that, but I also wanted to take a secondary from that book, Mike Tarik, and add him to this 11,000 word novella. I married the two of them into it so that the novella was not only an epilogue regarding “what happened next to Bay and Gabe,” but also became a bridge to Mike’s book, Taking Fire.

There are actually THREE books, with Zone Of Fire, 2.1.2015 coming out first to set up Mike’s book. Then, on 2.25.2015, Taking Fire comes out and is Mike and Khatereh’s story. It is followed on 3.1.2015 by On Fire, Ebook only. It is what I term a “director’s cut” to their story.

Unfortunately, in paperbacks, a 100,000 words is the max amount one can write about a story. I over ran that mark by roughly 40,000 words! And I did not want to delete it and forget it. My editor, Tara Gavin, agreed and so did Harlequin.
This is how these three books are like boxcars in a row on a train, kind of thing. It’s a creative and new way to present characters and their stories. And I hope you enjoy them. Do let me know?

Taking Fire is a story of US Navy SEAL, Mike Tarik, who is an American citizen, but 1/2 Saudi and 1/2 American, through his mother, Annie. His father is a world renown cardiac surgeon. Dr. Bedir Tarik met his wife, Annie, over in Saudi Arabia where she was an American school teacher. Bedir, who is Sufi, believes firmly that love is the only way to peace and harmony in the world. He falls in love with Annie, and they marry in Riyadh. Later, she gets pregnant with Mike and he is born in San Diego, California.

Bedir takes his young son over to Saudi Arabia for three weeks every year. He has a charity in Riyadh, and he and Mike take a pickup and distribute clothes, food and money to the poor at the fringes of that city, as well as to many others areas. He teaches his son generosity, giving back and being grateful for what he has.

Mike grows up wanting to become a Navy SEAL. Bedir has already shown him his family’s lineage and tells his warrior son that he has the genes of his warrior great-grandfather. Mike’s view on it is that he wants to help the poor and oppressed, to rid them of tyrants who kill or make their lives miserable. When he deploys to Afghanistan with Seal Team 3, he works with NGO charities to bring food, clothing, and shoes to the desperately poor Afghan villages near where his team is located.

He carries on his father’s belief in always helping those who have less. But on one mission, he finds himself in need. He and his four-man SEAL team are out on a mission. And it is a black ops US Marine Corps sniper who saves his team and him from a deadly ambush. And she’s a woman! Mike’s entire life changes in the moment he is injured and saved by this mysterious operator who cares for him deep in the cave systems of the Hindu Kush Mountains near the Pakistan border.

Sergeant Khatereh Shinwari is wary of this SEAL, must maintain her deep black ops cover and although she’s powerfully drawn to Mike, there is no way she can act upon it. Mike, before he’s picked up by a Night Stalker helicopter once he’s ready to leave her care for FOB Bravo, promises her, he will see her again.

Khat doesn’t believe him, as much as she wished she could. Her life is not her own. Her loyalty is to her Afghan people, not to a single man like Mike. But life has a funny way of changing up, and Mike isn’t about to just let this enigmatic, beautiful woman disappear out of his life. No way…..

I had great fun creating this story and it’s unlike anything my readers have read. I’m very excited about it, about the sympathetic characters that you are sure to cheer on! And toward that end? I’ve created a “Director’s Cut” of a much longer ending to Taking Fire. Don’t worry, the book you’ve bought is complete with an HEA ending. But if you want to know more of “what else” happened,” then On Fire, HQN, 5.1.2015, digital only, 40,000 words long and $2.99, will be available to you to continue their twisting and dangerous destiny with one another! And an HEA ending, of course!
