HRT #9: Betrayed is Out!

Dear reader,

I'm so excited to bring you Georgia and Bautista's story at last! Many of you know how torn I was about Bautista back when I wrote and released Exposed (Cruzie and Marisol's story). I know he's no angel, but there's a lot of good in him still so I'm really glad I could resurrect him and give him a shot at a happy ending. 

Torn apart by lies and a hail of bullets…
Georgia Randall is a government-trained killer with nothing left to live for except the burning need for revenge. She’s lost everything she cared about, including the only man she ever loved, and now her past has caught up with her. Shadowy enemies are on the move, determined to silence her before she can kill her remaining targets. But when the man she’s been mourning suddenly turns up to confront her, Georgia must face the consequences of the lies she told to conceal her double life. And even if she wins him back and survives what’s coming, she knows a happy ending isn’t possible for someone like her.
Only revealing their darkest secrets can bring them back together. 
Against all odds, notorious assassin Miguel Bautista clawed his way back from the brink of death. Now he wants answers. For months he’s been tormented by the devastating truth about the one bright spot in his dark and violent past: the woman he fell in love with was nothing but a lie. When he learns she’s in danger and is offered the chance to save her, he signs a deal with the devil to protect her. They already lost each other once. If any of what they shared was real, this time he’s not letting her go. But if they’re going to have a prayer at a future together they must first evade the enemies closing in on them—and fight to stay alive.

On a bittersweet note, I recently wrapped up the final book of the HRT Series. Blackwell's story, Reclaimed, is with one of my editors right now and I'm planning to release it in late June or so. I think it's one of the best books I've ever written, a real roller coaster of emotions combined with taut, edge-of-your-seat action. I hope you guys will love it as much as I do.

I'll admit, I have mixed feelings about ending this series. I'll be sad to say goodbye to this cast of characters I've become so deeply attached to, but I'll be sure to bring them into play in future books, with some kind of crossover in my future series. 

At the moment I'm working on the first of what will either be a series of three or four novellas (ha, IF I can manage to actually write a novella), each featuring a sibling from the Colebrook family. You'll meet Brody Colebrook, the HRT sniper team leader, in Reclaimed. From there I plan to start a new series, using the final Colebrook Series book as a springboard. 

Oh, and if you're an audiobook fan, you'll be pleased to know that Audible is going to produce the first six books of he HRT Series. Look for MarkedTargetedHuntedDisavowedAvenged and Exposed to release in audio format in the next 6-9 months or so.

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy Georgia and Bautista's story!

Happy reading.
