I’m really excited to be part of the launch of CJ Lyon’s Shadow Ops Kindle World and I had a fun time writing FIGHT THE SHADOWS. It was action-packed and sexy and I got to show off some of the parts of New York that I visit every day. Today’s Teaser Tuesday is an excerpt from FIGHT THE SHADOWS.
He had never given up hope of finding his wife’s killers . . .
Marine Staff Sergeant Rick Sanchez had survived two tours of duty and returned home to join the New York City Police Department. He’d found something besides his calling at the Police Academy: he found the love of his life. When his wife is killed three years later by gang thugs, Rick feels betrayed by the police department that calls it a drug deal gone bad and claims his wife was dirty. He quits the force and vows to get to the truth, but he doesn’t foresee the danger coming at him from both the street gang and a pint-sized warrior who threatens to steal his heart again.
She had clawed her way out of the barrio and hated being drawn back into that life . . .
Patricia Morales had worked hard to build a better life for herself outside the crime-ridden section of New York City where her family had settled after leaving Honduras. It wasn’t easy, especially after her father was killed in a car accident. But she’d joined the National Guard and found a way to a better life for her family. Deployed as part of Joint Task Force Empire Shield, she hopes to one day help her half-brother out of the gang life. When her half- criminal activities may involve a possible terrorist threat, Patricia must face her past and deal with her attraction to a man determined to send her half-brother to jail for a murder he didn’t commit.
