So, who's Traci Abramson?
As for my writing career, I started writing over ten years ago after resigning from the CIA, and it took me more than seven years to finally create a manuscript that was worth submitting. (I tried submitting earlier novels and I have the rejection letters to prove it!) The idea for Undercurrents had been rattling around in my head since college, and it took that long for it to finally take shape. Thankfully, submissions have gone much smoother since that first novel made it into print.
What's Backlash about?
In the five years she’s been married to Navy SEAL Kel Bennett, Marilyn has lived with fear as a near-constant companion. But the morning she sees two men in naval uniforms approaching her doorway with solemn faces, her fear turns to terror. This is what she signed up for when she exchanged wedding vows with that stunning man in military dress whites: a husband who leaves home whenever the phone rings and who might not ever come back. Turns out Marilyn is lucky this time: Kel is still alive, although gravely injured from the Saint Squad op that thwarted a terrorist attack in the southwestern US. While his wife is relieved to have him stationary in a hospital bed, Kel’s necessary lack of openness about his work puts a strain on their already troubled marriage. As the distance between the couple widens, Marilyn turns to the book she’s secretly writing to express her unspeakable emotions.
Meanwhile, the backlash from the foiled terrorist mission brings Halim Karel to the States in search of Seth, the undercover agent who’d infiltrated his organization and spearheaded the abduction of his boss’s niece. As danger mounts and the SEAL team springs into action, Marilyn is shocked by her first glance into the grisly realities of her husband’s profession: violence, deception, even killing. And when she becomes a central ploy in Halim’s revenge plan, she struggles to find needed trust and confidence in this military man she loves — not just to save their marriage but to save their lives.
So what's it take to win the book? I'm only going to make you jump through two or three hoops.:
- Comment here that you're interested in the book (please read the disclaimers below).
- Follow this blog (if you aren't already).
- If you've just followed me, please Tweet or Facebook about the giveaway. Please give me a link to your Facebook or Tweet so I can follow you if I'm not already.
- And if you're already following me, feel free to Tweet or Facebook about it.
- I haven't read this book (yet). It's Book 4 in a series, and I've only read the first book Freefall (to my hubby). We really enjoyed it.
- While the books generally stand alone, this one volume has a plotline from the prior book Crossfire. When I asked Traci about it, she said she would normally recommend reading Crossfire first, but the book should work without doing so.
- This book is about religious people. While their religious beliefs are in the background and just part of their lives and culture (not the preachy kind), if you are sensitive against that kind of thing, you might not like the book. Or you might. You won't know unless you give it a try.
