Barbour Books (July 1, 2010)
by

Ronie Kendig

Ever wonder what might happen to men (and women) who return from fighting overseas? When they are no longer fit for service for whatever reason? If what ifs like that every plague you, then you will enjoy Ronie's latest offering. This book has several layers running at the same time, and it is a book of Ronie's heart which comes through in the writing. It's labeled romance, but also contains a lot of action. A great read for someone who's looking for a romance that's more.

Watch the trailer and then leave a comment about why this book interests you. I'll select a winner from the comments!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Ronie has been married since 1990 to a man who can easily be defined in classic terms as a hero. She has four beautiful children. Her eldest daughter is 16 this year, her second daughter will be 13, and her twin boys are 10. After having four children, she finally finished her degree in December 2006. She now has a B.S. in Psychology through Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA. Getting her degree is a huge triumph for both her and her family--they survived!!

This degree has also given her a fabulous perspective on her characters and how to not only make them deeper, stronger, but to make them realistic and know how they'll respond to each situation. Her debut novel, Dead Reckoning released March 2010 from Abingdon Press. And her Discarded Heroes series begins in July from Barbour with the first book entitled Nightshade.

ABOUT THE BOOK
After a tour of duty in a war-torn country, embattled former Navy SEAL Max Jacobs finds himself discarded and alienated from those he loves as he
struggles with war-related PTSD. His wife, Sydney, files a restraining order against him and a petition for divorce. Max is devastated.

Then a mysterious a man appears. He says he's organizing a group that recycles veterans like Max. It's a deep-six group known as Nightshade. With
the chance to find purpose in life once again, Max is unable to resist the call of duty and signs on.

The team handles everything with precision and lethal skill...until they're called upon to rescue a missionary family from a rebel-infested jungle and
avoid a reporter hunting their identities.

Will Max yield his anger and pride to a force greater than him...love? If you would like to read the first chapter of Nightshade, go HERE.

What an action packed video! I have heard good things about this book and it looks like it is action packed, though I personally like to know there is romance in it. :) Thanks Cara!
