The literary world of Special Forces
December 7, 2017
From a single idea comes a myriad of outstanding novels produced by top-of-the-line writers.
Kindle Worlds is a fascinating concept.
A best selling author like Susan Stoker builds a special world for her novels and populates it with a band of strong and unforgettable characters.
Then she asks other authors to write their own romantic thrillers using at least one of her characters in their storylines.
Thus, a new Kindle World emerges.
I was fortunate enough to be asked to participate in the November releases of Susan’s Special Forces: Operation Alpha line of novels.
From a single idea comes a myriad of outstanding novels produced by top-of-the-line writers. I am proud to showcase a few of the November releases here. Others will follow.
If you’re not familiar with Kindle World of Susan Stoker, you should be.

Roland Sand has killed two government operatives sent to execute him. He is arrested and represented in court by a beautiful young public defender, Eleanor Trent. Their eyes connect. So do their hearts, but both keep their feeling buried deep inside them.
Eleanor does not know that Sand is an assassin for a rogue intelligence agency that sells its deadly services to foreign nations as well as to its own country. He has angered his chief, the one-eyed Bohemian, by refusing to kill an accountant who accidentally saw the details of a top-secret mission. Sand sees no reason why an innocent man should die.
The Bohemian’s agents kidnap Sand and take him from the Durango, Colorado, jail. He is given one chance to redeem himself. He must carry out the assignment to assassinate the President of the United States. It is a mission sanctioned from inside the United States government.
Eleanor is furious, and she is frightened. She has lost cases before. But never has she lost a client. In desperation, he calls Navy SEAL Commander Patrick Hurt to help her track down the missing Roland Sand. She handled a case for one of Hurt’s friends years earlier, and he said she could count on him if she ever needed him.
At Midway Airport, Sand awaits the arrival of Air Force One. The President comes down the steps, and Sand sees Eleanor in the greeting committee. He is told, “Kiill the President or we kill the lady.” He has only a second to make up his mind. And Hurt knows, if necessary, he must kill Sand to save the President.
