Marie Harte's Dawn Endeavor 3: Julian's Jeopardy
|Series:||Dawn Endeavor; Previous book: Hayashi's Hero|
Genetic manipulation has created the first super soldier, the Circ. The second generation of Circs, able to transform into hulking, inhuman beasts at will and psychically gifted is much more dangerous than the first. Under Project Dawn Endeavor, the secret four-man team belongs to the mysterious Mrs. Sharpe who is bent on cleaning up science gone wrong around the globe on behalf of the United States government. But there’s more to her agenda than patriotism. If only the team knew what she really had planned.
As leader of the Circs of Dawn Endeavor, Julian Hawkins takes his responsibilities seriously. With two of his Circs now mated, life for his team is evolving, slowly but surely, into something with which Jules is unfamiliar, and he's not sure what to do about it. As if personal strife wasn't enough, an old enemy has Jules in his sights.
Kidnapped and held prisoner in the remote Amazon jungle, Jules comes perilously close to dying when a woman made of light saves him. She has the purest aura he’s ever seen, a body made for loving, and a heart made just for him. Except she's not real. But months after his rescue, when Mrs. Sharpe introduces the woman as a new part of the team, can he trust what he sees? Or is the woman there for another reason entirely, one that will put his team, and his heart, in dire jeopardy?

Some things on my feeble mind:
*To Hunt a Sainte has made MBaM's bestseller list. Yes, it's a new release, but you never can tell what readers will want. And so far, readers want the story. Who knows what later today or even tomorrow will bring? Thank you, thank you, readers.
*If my muse gets any more invisible, I might have to hunt him down and shoot him. Every time I take two steps forward on Gunnar's Game, my last Dawn Endeavor story, I get distracted.
*I have had more edits in this last week than I ever have in my writing career. Check this out: Final Line Edits AND Proofs for Julian's Jeopardy. 1st and 2nd edits for Namesake. 1st edits for Seriana Found. Oh, and I had proofs for To Hunt a Sainte last week. AAARRRGGGHHH!
*Better to be busy than not busy. Whoever first said that should be shot. Us lazy people consider work a four-letter word. Yeah, I know it is. But you know what I mean.
*It's one in the morning and I'm on my second cup of coffee. I'm also writing this post when I should be working on Gunnar's Game. Yes, lately I have the attention span of a gnat.
*Signing off now. Back to @#@!!!$% work. And my muse is totally going to hear it from me about his so-called summer break. I have work to do!!!

To Hunt a Sainte is the first novel I ever wrote, and it's my first romantic suspense. Of course, I had to have something paranormal in the book, so there are psychics, as well as bad guys, lots of sexy parts, and a hero named Hunter. It's nice to see the book finally out there after several revisions and tons of edits. Thanks to Laurie, my wonderful editor, and to Kanaxa, for the kick-ass cover.

5 Yr Old: Momma! He does the dance! Watch him do the dance. (points at computer and has seizure, er, dances)
Me: Yes he does. And you're very good at it. But, um, be careful. You almost knocked your brother unconscious. See the zombie? He dances just like Michael Jackson!
5 Yr Old: (excitedly) Michael Jackson's in my class!
Me: Um, no, no that's not who I'm talking about. You see, this Michael Jackson is--
5 Yr Old: No, really, Momma! He's my friend. And he's taller than me. And he has brown hair. And one time, he...
Interesting how the years between us change our perspective on things. Which brings me to another interesting quirk--revisiting old manuscripts. The book I wrote 5 years ago had to be revised extensively. No more floppy disks, now we use thumb drives. Cell phones and computers nowadays can do things they didn't years ago. So having a character stranded on the road is no longer an option, unless the character is in the middle of nowhere with no cell phone. Or the battery died, or he has AT&T instead of Verizon...
Lots of conventions to do away with things technology no longer lets us get away with. I find it amusing to read old books where the heroine doesn't own a computer. She has no idea how to reach someone because the operator isn't helpful. The old days of simplicity in a romantic suspense no longer apply, because with the information age, it's all too easy to track down criminals unless they're hiding out on a deserted island or the boonies.
But the Michael Jackson conversation with my little guy really put things into perspective. Too funny.

Had to share this, by author Parnell Hall. It's too funny. And just how I felt at the book signings I've done. Now I never had to sit next to Mary Higgins Clark, but I did sit next to Virginia Henley once. And if you don't know who she is, you don't know your historical romance!! Enjoy the video.
