In the late 1980’s, I created Morgan’s Mercenaries, a romantic military suspense family saga-series. It went on to become 45 books strong, best selling, around the globe and put into 33 foreign languages.
I created the military romance genre in 1983 with Captive of Fate (then, Silhouette Special edition and today, Harlequin). Today, military romantic suspense is red hot. It’s nice to see that my early efforts in the 1980’s and 1990’s blossomed, grew and matured into the genre it is today in 2016.
When I finished Morgan’s Mercenaries, I was already working on another military family saga-series. It is called Delos. This time I wanted Delos to mirror the world of 2016 that we live in today. I spent five years crafting the characters and their stories.
I wrote a FREE ebook short story, LAST CHANCE, to kick off and introduce this new series. And then, released Book 1, NOWHERE TO HIDE, in October, 2015.
The world today, no matter where you live, it is no longer safe. And that’s a sad fact, but I needed to mirror that reality in Delos Series. When Major Robert Culver met and married Turkish/Greek Dilara Badem, he was creating a dynasty. They had three children: Talia (Tal), Matt and Alexa. All of them went into the military to serve their nation.
Dilara’s mother had created Delos charities in the 1950’s, and there were 1,800 of them around the world, helping the poor, educating them, and helping the economically deprived. Dilara moved the headquarters to Alexandria, Virginia, where she lived with her husband. They raised their three children there, but during the summer school break, they would take them to Kusadasi, Turkey. It was there that Dilara’s family lived. Tal, Matt and Alexa grew up speaking English, Turkish and Greek. They became global in their reality because of the roots of their far flung family. And all of this served to help them help others, later on.
NOWHERE TO HIDE begins the story about Delos and how Artemis, their internal security company, came into being. Even charities are no longer safe anywhere in the world. Employees are kidnapped, killed and are at risk no matter where they serve in our world today. The three Culver children, now adults, must not only create a state-of-the-art security company to protect the thousands of volunteers and employees, but protect them.
And so begins another military family saga-series. I hope you enjoy the romance, the suspense and the lives of those who serve humanity.
