Aloha to Kay Thomas and PERSONAL TARGET: An Elite Ops Novel - Cover Reveal


AEGIS: an elite team of ex-military men working under the radar of most governments. If you have a problem no one else can handle, they can help.

A former SEAL and Black Ops specialist who left the CIA, Nick Donovan gave up a life on the edge to work in the private sector. But that didn't stop his enemies from coming after him—or his family. In a case of mistaken identity, a drug cartel kidnaps his sister-in-law's best friend … a woman from Nick's past.

One minute Jennifer Grayson is housesitting and the next she's abducted to a foreign brothel. Jennifer is planning her escape when her first "customer" arrives. Nick, the man who broke her heart years ago, has come to her rescue. Now, as they race for their lives, passion for each other reignites and old secrets resurface. Can Nick keep the woman he loves safe against an enemy with a personal vendetta?

PERSONAL TARGET will be available July 29 from Avon Impluse (link).  Meanwhile, Kay is hosting an international giveaway of Book 1, HARD TARGET, at this link.

  1. I've done it once for my cousin. Luckily nothing happened.

  2. No I have not, thanks

  3. I house sat once for 10 days when I was in college while also taking care of the couple's 4 year old daughter while they did another leg around the world on their sailboat. It was so much fun!

  4. I've never house sat. I have baby sat - many times.

  5. I have never house sat a home but I have heard funny tales.

  6. Yes, when I was younger. Yes, something did happen. I totally freaked out to. The house I was staying at had a hot tub. One night, I guess some water got into the wiring which cause a short circuit. So, the water didn't heat anymore and I didn't know why. Basically I was told that I could have been electrocuted. Good times.

  7. I have never house sat. Love the covers!

  8. Never house sat but I would not mind having a house sitter when we are gone on long trips.

  9. No but we had someone do it for us when we had our dog - burnt a hole in our rug and ate us out of house and home.

  10. I used to house sit for my sister many years ago, when we were both single and she would travel. Nothing too exciting ever happened during those times.

  11. I used to house-sit for my boss who had umpteen cats. Not being used to sharing my bed with so many furry people, I accidentally knocked one out of bed...and giggled as I listened to her go through the house and hiss and growl at the other cats!

  12. I have never had the opportunity to house sit but I saw something on television about people who house sit some really amazing houses and it looked like fun.
