Liz Borino Guest Spotlight 6

Guest Post

Hello Crystal’s Many Reviewers readers! I’m so excited to be here today. Well, to be honest, I’m also a little apprehensive because it means I’m getting ready to release the fourth and final book in the Secrets series. Rhett and Kaden will always have a very special place in my heart. Theirs was the first series I self-published. The first one I’ve had complete control over. Have I done everything right? No. But I’ve learned from my experiences.

The fourth book in the series, Secrets of Starting Over has two characters who may be familiar to some of you. Jordan and Aaron Collins, from Angel’s Intuition are helping to hide Rhett and Kaden. So, you’ll get the opportunity to check in with Jordan, Aaron, Adeela, and Elliot. Let me stress here that you don’t need to read Angel’s Intuition to enjoy Secrets of Starting Over. I adore all of my characters, but Rhett and Aaron together… How about I just show you?

P.S. This may be the last full-length book of the series, but Rhett seems to think he’ll be back.

Secrets of Starting Over excerpt:

“I don’t want you focused on the team because if you look hard enough you can always find something suspicious about anyone.”

“Not you.”

Aaron threw his head back and laughed for a solid twenty seconds, prompting the animals to come in and stare at him. He wiped the corners of his eyes as his guffaws turned to chuckles. “Thanks for that. No, actually if you did a proper background check on me you’d find out the CIA fired me for insubordination. I didn’t follow orders blindly.” He petted Tiny, who curled up at his side. Rhett didn’t need to prompt him to explain. “Jordan was deployed on a mission that went very wrong. The building he was in burned and his partner was found dead. They brought me his burned uniform and dog tags to prove the same thing happened to him.”

“Jordan? You mean—” Rhett stopped as the man in question walked through the front door with Lucy at his side.

“Yeah, him.” Aaron leaned up for a kiss, which Jordan had no qualms about giving.

“Talking about me?” he asked.

“I was telling him about why I got fired from the CIA. Your dad’s papers are on the table.” Aaron pointed to a file in the other room.

Jordan blinked at him. “How did you…?”

Aaron smiled. “You weren’t listening when I reminded you earlier.”

“How is he today?” Rhett asked.

“Annoyed that I’m making him ‘see the asshole’ when he’s supposed to be at the senior center with his girlfriend. If he doesn’t see her twice a week she might forget him and date one of the other men.” Jordan rolled his eyes and grabbed the file off the table. “They’re recreating high school there.”

“High school with dementia,” Aaron added with a kiss. “Have fun.”

“Now you’re just being mean,” Jordan joked.

“Can’t be properly mean with Rhett around.” Aaron waved him out the door. Jordan bid Rhett goodbye and left again. Aaron focused back on Rhett. “Anyway, the military was trying their damnedest to convince me my husband was dead. They went so far as to hold a funeral – which I refused to attend.”

The story knocked the air from Rhett’s lungs. “How did you know?”

Aaron shrugged. “I didn’t really, but no one offered me any proof that he was gone – until they did.”

Secrets of Starting Over (Release Date 9/15)

To have a chance of saving his life – and the lives of the people he loves – Rhett must ditch his plane in the Pacific Ocean. By destroying his physical tie to his home, he and Kaden can begin to heal. While Jordan and Aaron Collins run the search for the people who are threatening Rhett’s life, Kaden and Rhett are told to blend in and act as normal as possible, but normal is a relative term.

Kaden thrives as a nurse practitioner at the veteran’s clinic. His days are filled with challenging patient cases and the hustle of medicine. He’s grateful for the diversion, lest his mind become obsessed with familial concerns.

Rhett, on the other hand, has no such relief. Because he’s the one being targeted, his movement is restricted. He attributes coincidences to personal attacks. As they uncover more of the mystery, the team discovers he might be right. Danger comes from the most unlikely of places. And allies are found from a past long forgotten.

Angel Intuition

Angel’s Intuition is a combination of Angel’s Hero and Angel’s Truth.

The CIA isn’t known for its honesty…

Without explanation, CIA officials pull Agent Aaron “Angel” Collins off a top-secret Afghanistan mission he’s spent months preparing for. His inexperienced replacement endangers more than the mission itself. Aaron’s husband, Captain Jordan Collins, will preside over the military forces on the ground. Because of repeated deceptions, Jordan decides to retire after this deployment.

A new friend might have his own agenda…

Major General Troy Hart inserts himself into Aaron’s life, somehow getting past his personal barriers and better judgment. Aaron is uneasy about their friendship until Troy, in his capacity as a high-ranking officer, delivers some devastating news about Jordan and becomes the only one who supports Aaron’s search for the truth. Unbeknownst to Aaron, Jordan and Troy’s dark history taints everything about the present.

Left for dead in enemy territory…

Jordan awakens in an Afghanistan prison, beaten, ill, and fighting for his life. To get home to his Angel he must put his trust in a woman he was taught to fear.

Jordan and Aaron will fight their greatest battle – for their lives and love…

When the mystery of Jordan’s disappearance is solved, another surfaces. Jordan and Aaron’s unauthorized search for the truth calls into question everything they thought they knew, until all they trust is each other. But exposing the wrong people threatens to bring their worst nightmares to fruition.

 If only people had listened to Angel’s Intuition from the start.
