Hey guys! I’m really excited that my new book Rogue Soldier made it into the Love Bytes Book of the Week poll! You guys propelled Broken Soldier into the book of the month poll last time. Think you can do it again and cast your vote for Rogue Soldier?? Thank you in advance!!
A huge thank you to Jamie for hosting me on the blog today. My new release, Death Mask, came out on November 9th. It’s a part of the Roughhouse Raiders collection from Less Than Three Press. Today I wanted to talk about the characters and why I chose the theme of death.
I went through a phase shortly after my father passed away on November 12, 2014, and I became obsessed with building a world that explained the how and whys of death. I love ancient history where the origins of thought and religion usually goes hand in hand with a culture’s rise and fall from power.
I’m guessing that you won’t be surprised that I fixated on the grim reaper. It’s hard to describe what I was doing as I read through all kinds of reference material on the subject. The search was very much an act of dealing with and excising my grief. In the process, I ended up creating an origin story for angels of death. I needed to take them away from being “bad” and placing them in a better light. In order to do that, I had to understand today’s view and how it evolved. I’m not one who believes in angels, mostly because I know the history of their emergence into the different cultures, but I found comfort in the philosophy behind them.
Many thanks to Tammy Smith at Love Bytes for the fantastic review!
Shawn Weller and Conner Finley have recovered from their ordeal in Kuala Lumpur. They spent a month healing both their physical as well as their emotional wounds, now they’re closer and stronger than ever!
Shadow Unit have just finished an op in the Kashmir region of Northern India that didn’t end well. Conner is having trouble deciding whether he’ll accept a promotion that will see him leaving Shadow Unit for another called Ghost Squad. Taking the promotion would be the end of his relationship with Shawn since Shawn hasn’t taken the news as well as he’d hoped. In fact, Shawn gave Conner an ultimatum; the promotion or me! Just as Conner is thinking he’s made up his mind they get the call to join the CIA on a joint operation, the only problem with this is the lead operative for the CIA is Shawn’s ex-handler/lover Julian Montgomery.
Julian has decided he wants Shawn back, the only thing wrong with his plan is that Shawn can’t stand him and refuses to even talk to him. Shawn doesn’t feel right about the op and tries to convince his commanding officer there’s something wrong but every time it’s considered it all checks out. Shawn knows Julian will go to any lengths to get what he wants and if him showing up in Shawn and Conner’s room naked is any indication, Julian is going to play as dirty as he knows to get him back.
You can feel Conner’s heart breaking when he realises what Julian is up to, added to the fact that Shawn and he aren’t exactly on speaking terms and Conner is feeling lost. But, at least he’s been forewarned he’ll now keep his guard up around Julian. The closer to the mission they get the surer both Conner and Shawn are that something isn’t right. Conner is kidnapped in the aftermath of the botched raid. Conner is then used as a “test subject”, after being beaten and tortured he is injected with a lethal poison that no-one has ever survived.
Will Shawn and Shadow Unit find Conner in time? Will Shawn and Conner remain partners? You are going to have to get your own copy of Rogue Soldier to get the answers. Make sure you’ve read Broken Soldier first.
RATING: 4.5 HEARTS
