Vanessa Kier spends way too much time thinking up ways she can torture her characters. A worst case scenario thinker, she's been creating stories in her head since childhood. Now she’s found her niche in writing romantic thrillers that combine intense emotion with action packed plots. The author of six books in The Surgical Strike Unit series about a privately run special operations group, she has set her new series WAR in West Africa, where she lived for a time.
When she's not writing, listening to music, or playing puzzle games on her mobile device, Vanessa writes the occasional Tech Talk column for her local RWA chapter's newsletter and takes long hikes in the nearby hills.

His main target is a mysterious syndicate overlord known as Krait. Dane suspects Krait might see him coming, but no matter what, Dane is determined to get the job done.
