DEADLY BETRAYAL (Deadly Vices, Book Three)
Release Date: July 21, 2014
An Afghan 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 eleven-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 unwittingly 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?

EXCERPT: Hours later, Azita awoke parched, but feeling oddly safe. She was warm and there was a delicious tugging in her hair as though someone were massaging her scalp. Her eyes popped open. Kaden watched her, his eyes warm and relieved, while his fingers stroked her hair, the strands gliding between his fingers, again and again. Goose bumps raced up her back at the strange feeling. Faroukh hadn’t been much for caresses, and no man had touched her bare head since she’d been a young girl. Kaden smiled. “Your hair is as soft as I’d dreamed it would be.”
She fell into his golden gaze, fell into her earlier fantasy of being with a man who loved her, wanted her, and whom she had chosen. The dream of being his, of Kaden being hers.
