“But you do look like him, like Rafe. I’ve sat across a table from both of you,” Shannon went ahead and said it.

“You’ve met him,” Kaden was surprised. “I didn’t know for certain he’d gone north this summer.”

“He came after us. Why do you think we’re here?” Hunter asked.

“You’re here for her,” Kaden gave a nod towards Shan. “That couldn’t be clearer.”

Now, right to a snippet. This is from The Vista. The topic of discussion is my main characters and how problematic they have become.

“Two?” Cooper repeated. “Are two a concern?”

“These two are,” JT said.

Cooper put together conversations he’d heard. “Are these the ones in Montana?”

JT and Vance nodded. “Except sometimes they aren’t in Montana,” Vance continued. “Sometimes they wander about to see the sights. We try to keep tabs on them, but clearly it’s not an easy thing to do because of a lot of reasons, not the least being distance, weather and the fact they are active.”

“And that’s why we’re here,” JT said.

“Where are they now?” Cooper asked.

“If the weather stays good, you could probably have lunch with them tomorrow,” Vance said.

“Ah, Christ, tell me they aren’t snooping around NORAD,” JT groaned.

Backlash Blurb

Blurb – Backlash


Before Team Three became Team Three, there was The Blackout.

Vista Security is used to the feral bands of human wandering the landscape since a brief and devastating war wiped away civilization. Sixteen years later, they’ve adapted to dealing with the challenges facing their safe haven.

That is, until a new threat appears, one they never expected and one they have little defense against. Security throws in everything they can muster; it quickly takes a toll. Their advantage – an untested team of officers barely more than children themselves; officers with dark secrets and a hidden agenda.

In a free-for-all battle to preserve one of the last sanctuaries of man, Team Three discovers their secrets are their strength and that their future will take them far beyond what they’ve ever known.

Action, a bit of romance and a good splash of sci-fi set the scene for Backlash, the prequel novella of The Wildblood series. Release date June 22, 2015.
