The third book in the action-packed romantic thriller series WAR.

Sometimes second chances come at the darkest hour…

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.

Book 1 in the action-packed romantic thriller series WAR. 

A rogue black ops agent and a former ballerina race to prevent a weapon of mass destruction lost in the West African jungle from falling into the wrong hands.

Rogue black ops agent Max Lansing is determined to bring international arms dealer Heinrich Dietrich to justice for the attack that critically injured his younger brother. When Max tracks Dietrich to West Africa he believes that revenge is finally within his grasp. Instead, Max ends up with a target on his back after Dietrich sends a vicious group of rebels to kill him.

When a group of American dancers gets caught in the crosshairs, Max grabs the sole survivor. He doesn’t want to play babysitter, but he’s determined that no more innocents will die.

Former prima ballerina Emily Iwasaki was promised this part of West Africa was safe. If she’d known the danger she would never have traveled thousands of miles with her dance troupe in order to raise awareness for war orphans. Adrift after the abrupt end to her career, she’d hoped the tour would restore her sense of purpose. Instead, she finds herself on the run with Max, the rebels hot on their heels.

Before Max gets Emily to safety, they learn that a plane carrying a weapon of mass destruction has crashed in the nearby jungle. They must locate the weapon before Dietrich does, or thousands will die.

With the fate of West Africa on their shoulders, Max and Emily find that they make a surprisingly skillful team. If they can outrun the rebels and survive the deadly hazards of the jungle, they might just save the day.

If you like edge-of-your-seat action, strong heroes and heroines who are pushed to their physical and moral limits, and an international setting, then you’ll love the first book in Vanessa Kier’s action-packed romantic thriller series, WAR. Get WAR: Disruption now to start the adventure!

Book 2 in the action-packed romantic thriller series WAR.

A doctor accused of weapons smuggling must convince a distrustful soldier of her innocence before the real smugglers use the weapons in a catastrophic attack.

WAR team leader Lachlan MacKay has tracked smuggled weapons to an American doctor at a West African clinic. But his deep hatred for doctors threatens to blind him to evidence that suggests all might not be as it seems.

Trauma surgeon Dr. Helen Kirk is desperate to put her family’s tainted history behind her. After months spent repairing her reputation, she’s one step from returning to the work she loves. Then Lachlan shows up, asking probing questions that threaten to raise the painful details of her past and derail her plans. Helen’s desperate attempts to make Lachlan leave only convince him of her guilt.

Then a series of attacks using the stolen weapons points the blame at a mysterious financial donor to Helen’s clinic. Soon Helen and Lachlan are caught up in a deadly plot intended to destroy West Africa. As those around them die, they must learn to put aside their distrust in order to stop the plot before the death toll rises.

The Last Stand Collection by Brenda Novak, Volume 2

Three perfect stories of romantic suspense from New York Times bestselling author Brenda Novak…

The Perfect Couple

One afternoon in May, Zoe Duncan’s thirteen-year-old daughter goes missing from her own backyard. Zoe’s willing to do anything to bring Sam home, even if it means divulging all her secrets to a private investigator.

Jonathan Stivers is good at what he does, the best. But never has the P.I. had fewer leads to work with–or been more attracted to a client. Jonathan’s sure of only one thing: Sam was taken by someone close to the family. He doesn’t know how close until he realizes that the “perfect” couple next door is anything but….

The Perfect Liar

Air Force Captain Luke Trussell is shocked when the police charge him with rape. He knows he made a mistake in judgment the night before, but he certainly didn’t force his attentions on the woman who’s been stalking him for months.

Problem is Kalyna Harter has the bruises, and the DNA evidence, to make her claim convincing.

Kalyna goes to victims’ rights advocate Ava Bixby, but Ava soon realizes she’s defending the wrong victim.

Problem is switching her support to Luke could be dangerous, especially when she falls for him. Because Kalyna won’t tolerate losing the man she wants to anyone. Least of all Ava.

The Perfect Murder

For more than a year, Sebastian Costas has been trying to unravel the truth behind the murder of his ex-wife and son. Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, he’s convinced that her second husband–a cop–committed both murders, then faked his own death. Now Sebastian has followed the slimmest of leads to Sacramento…and that’s where he finally gets the break he needs. Investigator Jane Burke calls him in connection with a separate crime–a crime that could lead him straight to the man he’s been looking for.

There are some lines even a cold-hearted spy won’t cross…

Investigative reporter Faith Andrews believes a secret government program has kidnapped her brother. Forced into hiding when assassins are sent to kill her, Faith refuses to give up. Desperate to save her brother, she’ll do anything to find him.

Ruthless and arrogant, CIA agent Mark Tonelli has always been driven by two things. The need to avenge his father’s death, and the desire to protect his country at any cost. But when he joins the black ops groups Kerberos, Mark discovers that there are some lines even he won’t cross.

Kerberos has been supporting an experimental program that forcibly turns men into superhuman soldiers. When Mark learns that the soldiers are going to be used in an upcoming attack against an innocent population, he vows to bring down Kerberos, even if it means giving up his plans for revenge.

When Faith confronts him and demands answers, he quickly realizes that her investigative skills make her a valuable partner. Only by working together can they expose Kerberos, stop the upcoming attack, and save her brother.

NOTE: Does part of this plot sound familiar? It should! Payback is a sideways book. That means that Payback takes place at the same time as Retribution. In fact, there are some scenes near the end of Payback that duplicate the action in Retribution. Payback shows you those scenes through Mark Tonelli’s eyes.

Because Retribution is on the main timeline of the series, and Payback contains spoilers for how Retribution ends, I recommend that you read Retribution first.

An innocent woman is caught in the crosshairs of an international manhunt. Can she trust the most wanted man on the planet to save her?

Accused of murder and of stealing a microchip containing deadly scientific research, Kai Paterson is hunted by both governments and criminals. Kai didn’t steal the chip, but his only hope of clearing his name lies in finding the chip before the hunters catch him.

Unfortunately, the chip has been implanted in the body of an innocent woman. Kai isn’t the only one who’s tracked the chip to internationally renowned archaeologist Susana Dias. But he’s the only one who will keep her alive.

Susana is on the cusp of making the most significant discovery of her career when she’s betrayed by those closest to her. Forced to abandon her dig in the Amazon jungle, Susana ends up on the run with Kai.

Kai promises to protect her, but will his promise hold up when it comes time to retrieve the microchip? Removing the chip might kill Susana. But Kai witnessed the horrific effects of the research and knows that the data on the chip must be destroyed.

With the other hunters closing in, Kai races to find a solution that will both save Susana and prevent the data from falling into the wrong hands.
