Rel’s special comments: Just wanted to say a little more about the brilliant Ronie Kendig and her books. Firstly, I want my readers to know upfront that I have established an amazing friendship with Ronie over the years since I first had the privilege to read Ronie’s debut novel, Dead Reckoning. She has no idea that I’ve decided to add an editorial to this post, and she will probably be a little embarrassed by it, but I’m willing to risk it!
We had chatted a little via email prior to Ronie asking me if I’d be interested in reading Dead Reckoning and as romantic suspense is my genre of choice, I jumped at the chance. I didn’t know Ronie or her writing and I was blown away by her novel, hardly believing it was the her first published book. I fell in love with her deeply engaging characters, adrenaline pumping action scenes, and the authentic love story that never interfered with the suspense. Then came her Nightshade series and whoa, baby~ what’s not to love about her discarded heroes?! The trauma they have suffered, the emotional and spiritual crossroads they endure, and their fabulous comaraderie, make you thoroughly invested in their journeys. And the romance ~ swoon, swoon, swoon! Not in a sappy, sentimental kind of way at all, as the love story blends seamlessly and naturally into the tale. The honour Ronie brings to those serving in the military through her stories is exceptional. Now, she is two books into A Breed Apart, again recognising the sacrifice of our soldiers but their canine buddies, too, who also protect and serve. More spine tingling, heart pounding stories to get lost in.
I’ve also had the privilege of reading some of her other works-in-progress ~ she doesn’t just have a talent for romantic suspense, let me assure you ~ she is a gifted writer and I truly hope all her stories get into readers’ hands one day!
So, why am I saying all of this? Well, I love introducing readers to books I love and there are none higher on my list than Ronie’s stories. So, if you are a fan of Dee Henderson, Dani Pettrey, Irene Hannon, DiAnn Mills, or Lynette Eason and you are yet to read a Ronie Kendig book, you are MISSING OUT! So, be sure to enter either of the giveaways Ronie and I are offering below ~ beware though, once you have read one Kendig book, you will need to read them all ;-D
