**Featuring JET from Russell Blake’s bestselling action-adventure thriller series and characters from Kim Cresswell’s action-packed Whitney Steel suspense series!**

After eliminating an al Qaeda terrorist cell and destroying a dirty bomb in Colombia destined for the United States, JET, Mossad’s former deadliest operative is hidden half around the world in Bangkok finally living the life she’s always wanted with her daughter, Hannah.
But when a Russian troll farm wreaks havoc by circulating rumors that Jet and her team killed the leader of the Sur del Calle cartel, unexpected enemies surface and a past adversary with a thirst for revenge hunts down the team vying for the big payoff—kill JET.
Available exclusively at Amazon (US site only)

DUPLICITY  is the second book in the Survival Series and explores different genres. Action. Adventure. Thriller.  The story is set in Las Vegas, Bangkok, and Russia.  Las Vegas was chosen because it’s my two main characters (Hal Decker and Angela Donahue) usual stomping grounds. Bangkok was revisited because some of the stories in Russell Blake’s original JET series were set there.  It is a place where JET feels safe in my story–or at least she thinks she is. I also chose Russia because I’ve always been intrigued by troll farms, how they operate,  and how they choose the fake stories and propaganda to circulate.

 

Meet some of the characters from JET:  OBLIVION  and JET: DUPLICITY

“Known by her codename JET, Maya is Mossad’s deadliest operative. As beautiful as she is lethal, Maya possesses a colorful past—one littered with missions carried out in extreme prejudice. She’s faked her own death, found and lost love, and rediscovered the daughter who was stolen from her at birth. But with enemies all around the world, Maya’s future is uncertain and her past not fully revealed.”

Hal Decker and Angela Donahue are my two crossover characters. They were first introduced in RETRIBUTION (A Whitney Steel Novel – Book #2) and met during a covert mission in Colombia while Hal was helping a good friend save his fiancee after she was kidnapped by the drug cartel.

Hal is a former FBI agent, elite sniper and an ex-marine. He’s a mellow kind of guy with soft voice and has a serious vibe to him. People who meet him aren’t sure if he is friend or foe. He’s brilliant and cunning. He reminds me of a younger Ron Perlman playing the character Luther Braxton in the TV show; The Blacklist.

Angela is thirty-three years old and ex-US military intelligence (surveillance/reconnaissance) who worked intelligence operations in numerous overseas environments as well as in South and Central America. She’s also the go-to-girl you call to help get you out of a hostile territory during a dangerous mission. Her specialty—exit plans. She’s pretty good at kicking butt too.

I decided to use JET and Hannah from the original JET Series in  DUPLICITY. I wanted to show the softer side of JET as a mother forced to do whatever it takes to protect her child. I also wanted readers to see more of Hannah this time around.

JETcoverRBVisit Russell Blake’s Author Page at Amazon

The major theme in DUPLICITY is the will to survive. Whether it’s a character who is an alcoholic or a character who’s risking her life to stop a terrorist attack—in the end it’s all about survival. It’s also the main theme in my other works as well. My books all have very strong female leads who have to fight to survive one way or another.

Book Highlight ~ Feudlings in Smoke by Wendy Knight + Giveaway

 
 

Title: Feudlings in Smoke

Author: Wendy Knight

Series: Fate on Fire #1.5

Genre: Young Adult Fantasy

Published: January 14th, 2014

Watching helplessly while your baby sister saves the world alone? It kinda sucks.

Will Delacour is one of the most powerful sorcerers to ever live. He’s Guard to the Edren Prodigy—his sister, Ari. But he walked away from the war, refusing to fight in a cause he didn’t believe in. He was deemed a traitor by the powerful Family, and now there’s a price on his head that leaves him trapped in a prison of his own making. And he can’t even tell the love of his life what she means to him because of the magical war that still controls their lives.

Instead of embracing his destiny, Will is forced to watch as Ari goes into battle over and over again, facing her enemies alone. She might be okay with it, but he’s not. He doesn’t believe in the war, but he does believe in her, and he knows his place is fighting by her side. Somehow, Will has to find a way to be there when Ari needs him , even if it means he forfeits his own life in the process.

 
 
—————————————————-
Ari pointed a finger at him, “Don’t think I’ve forgotten that little stunt you pulled today. I’m debating over an adequate punishment.” She shoved herself to her feet, crossing the room and touching a finger to the spark of the doorway she’d left burning. The portal bloomed to life, and he could see the airway hanger, and the sport utility vehicle she’d affectionately named Beep, waiting for her. She stepped through, but paused just on the other side. “Will?”
“Yeah, baby sister?” he asked with a smile. She was going to tell him that he needed to lighten up, or that he wasn’t allowed to lecture boys, or that she forgot his pizza, which she had, and now that he thought about it he was mildly annoyed, but she surprised him.
“You always say that you aren’t there to protect me like you’re supposed to. I think you don’t realize something.” She tipped her head sideways, considering him while his mouth hung open. “You trained me, Will. Without that, I would die a thousand times before the Prodigy ever found me. And today, you stopped that e-mail. You don’t have to be fighting by my side to protect me.” She cracked the barest hint of a sarcastic smile. “Anyway, I’m an uber-powerful warrior. I don’t need a babysitter.” Her sarcastic smile turned sad. “I need a brother who reminds me that I’m not a monster. Who loves me and always has my back. Who reminds me that I still have hope. If not for you, I would be lost. Remember that, Will.”

Wendy Knight was born and raised in Utah by a wonderful family who spoiled her rotten because she was the baby. Now she spends her time driving her husband crazy with her many eccentricities (no water after five, terror when faced with a live phone call, etcetera, etcetera). She also enjoys chasing her three adorable kids, playing tennis, watching football, reading, and hiking. Camping is also big: her family is slowly working toward a goal of seeing all the National Parks in the U.S.

You can usually find her with at least one Pepsi nearby, wearing ridiculously high heels for whatever the occasion may be. And if everything works out just right, she will also be writing.

Book Talk ~ Ingredients of a Great Thriller

Every now and then you read a novel that has you glued to the story because the action is moving at warp-speed and you’re swept away not wanting to stop reading until you know how it turns out.

The tension rises and you ride along with the characters feeling every blow right up until the climax.

In my opinion, the main ingredient in a bestselling thriller is emotion. If you feel the story in your heart and gut then the author has done his or her job.

A great thriller is unpredictable. What if the FBI agent leading a murder investigation is the killer?

A great thriller has deadlines—the ticking clock. Will the FBI agent be caught before he kills again?

A great villain is a must-have in any thriller—a villain that stirs feelings of hatred, fear, disgust and sometimes empathy in the reader.

A main character who is worthy to fight the villain and hopefully win.

The setting and the action must also be believable for the reader because if the reader doesn’t believe, the story ends.

In Lethal Journey, my heroine, Lauren Taylor, is a New York district attorney. She’s taking on the most important and dangerous case of her career, prosecuting mob boss, Gino Valdina and it’s not going to be an easy journey for her.

As the story progresses, it’s unpredictable, has deadlines, a villain who evokes fear, hatred and empathy, and a heroine and hero who are physically and emotionally worthy to battle the villain to the end.

Lethal Journey900“Lethal Journey, a fast-paced novella hits all the points of a romantic murder mystery. The protagonist is Lauren Taylor, the prosecutor in the trial of a Mafia crime boss who once before slid out from under the punishment he so deserves. Her father is the district attorney, both enmeshed in a tragic family history they can’t leave behind. Eric Brennan is the tough police detective, who moves in and out of Lauren’s life as their sometimes love connection flourishes and then falls apart. There are other great characters in this drama who deftly fill in the blanks as the plot of murder, deception and tenuous connections twist into a knot that defies the reader to solve the mystery and unearth the true antagonist. Be prepared for a surprise ending that will blow you away. –Fran Orenstein, Sunwriter
