All Tyler Karras wants is to enjoy life with his expectant new bride. What he gets instead is a graveside seat at her funeral. With the person responsible uncharged and still free, all Ty wants now is revenge.
His target is a stranger, a woman. He doesn’t know her, but he’ll find her, and when he does, he will make her pay.
Ty’s brother, Nick, has dangerous connections and suggests a sadistic plan. Grab this woman and hand her over to his associates, sex-traffickers in San Francisco’s Russian Mafia. They offer Ty more than he dreamed possible. In exchange for the woman, they’ll finally let Nick leave the business for good, with his debt wiped clean and his heart still beating.
There’s just one problem. Ty kidnaps the wrong woman. Now all his plans have gone straight to hell.
With his eyes made clear by the stark reality of his mistake, Ty is driven, compelled by remorse and a relentless sense of guilt to make amends and protect Hannah Maguire, the innocent woman whose life he has derailed. He vows to keep her safe and out of the hands of the very enemy he’s unleashed, but the Russians are holding Nick as leverage to force Ty to complete their deal.
Caught in a no-win situation, Ty must find a way to save himself, his brother, and Hannah, but with the Russian Mafia, even two out of three makes for very long odds.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
I only write in the Romantic Thriller genre, though I am thinking of writing a contemporary romance, so I’ll have to kick the love scenes into overdrive!
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Research the publishing industry exhaustively, read as many books on craft as you can get your hands on, and understand that you will have to promote and market yourself vigorously to achieve any amount of success.
I started writing fiction rather suddenly one day in 2010. Inspired by a song, I was struck with an idea I couldn’t shake and just had to write it down. It was while working on this, my first novel, that I discovered how much I love writing. I make my fiction debut with The Mistaken, and am currently working on its sequel, Leverage. In addition to owning an interior design business, I am also a book editor. I’m a Bay Area, California transplant, currently living with my husband near Seattle, WA.
