Like me, Kristine writes romantic suspense, and she's getting close to releasing DEADLY BETRAYAL, the third book in her award-winning Deadly Vices series. I'm currently editing it, and let me tell you, this book ROCKS! Set in Afghanistan, this story brims with tension, suspense, and sizzling sexual chemistry. I can't wait until you all can read it too. Kristine is here today to give us a sneak peek at DEADLY BETRAYAL. Take it away, Kristine!
Hello, everyone! I am thrilled to share with you the cover of my upcoming release, DEADLY BETRAYAL. It was designed and created by the amazingly talented Scarlett Rugers.
DEADLY BETRAYAL (Deadly Vices, Book Three)
Release Date: July 21, 2014
An Afghani woman’s rights activist with a dark secret.
Azita Seraj, doctor and women’s rights activist in Afghanistan, is horrified to learn that her late husband’s brother, Khalid Mullazai, is giving his twelve-year-old niece to a militant warlord. Desperate to save the girl, she reaches out to the only hope she has: an American soldier she treated several years earlier for a near-fatal gunshot wound. A wound he received in an ambush she’d initiated. Can she enlist his aid and still keep secret her betrayal?
An American soldier searching for answers.
Kaden Christiansen never forgot the beautiful Afghan doctor who saved his life, and when he receives her cry for help, he doesn’t hesitate. He relishes the opportunity to see Azita again, and being in-country will give him a chance to hunt down the person responsible for the ambush that left one of his men dead.
A deadly conspiracy that threatens them both...
Pursued by Mullazai and the warlord’s fighters as they travel across the country disguised and posing as a married couple, Kaden and Azita begin to fall for their own act and for each other. But Kaden senses that Azita is holding back. Is the reason their cultural differences, or something darker?
This book will also be available in print, so Scarlett created an equally wonderful print cover for DEADLY BETRAYAL. I think it's absolutely gorgeous!
Already four beta readers plus my editor have read the book and loved it. I hope you will also find Kaden and Azita's unusual story both spell-binding and fascinating.
