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.

A desperate pilot who’s out of options.
When bush pilot Seth Jarrod receives the new assignment from his blackmailer—to fly for the brutal leader of a breakaway West African rebel group—he knows he can’t comply. Not if he wants to hold onto the remaining fragments of his soul.
Yet if he fails, his niece will die.
An up-and-coming singer on the verge of international success.
Indie singer Kirra Neilson is on her way to a benefit concert when her bus is attacked by rebels hoping to recover stolen diamonds. Kirra is shocked to discover that the rebels suspect that the thief passed the diamonds to her. She is no stranger to the darker side of life. A former jewel thief who spent time on the streets, Kirra uses those skills to escape. But she soon discovers that eluding armed men—who don’t care who they hurt during the chase—is trickier than sneaking into a secure high-rise.
A chance encounter presents Seth with a possible way out. It’s dangerous, but he’s desperate enough to seize any opportunity.
Kirra stumbles into Seth’s life, looking like a bedraggled angel, with rebel soldiers hard on her heels. Seth can’t sit back and do nothing, even though it puts his escape plan in jeopardy. He tells himself he’ll run interference once, then send her on her way.
Their enemies are more powerful than they realize. And time is running out.
The rebels are deadly serious about retrieving the diamonds, and they aren’t the only ones on the hunt. It will take the combined skills of Seth and Kirra, with a dash of luck and a helping of love, to keep them both alive. And even then, the power of Seth’s secret might destroy any chance of a future.
