No. I’m not talking about my personal history. The hero of MIDNIGHT SACRIFICE, Danny
Sullivan, is the first bad boy hero I’ve ever written.
To be precise, Iraqi War veteran Danny Sullivan is a reformed bad boy.
This was the first time I’d ever written a hero with a shady background. Danny
had a troubled youth and enlisted in the army. Being a soldier brought out the
best in him, but poor Danny was injured in Iraq. He’s sent home with a bum hand
Danny is lost without the career that defined him as a good man. But he comes
home determined to find a new purpose. His new goal in life is to find the
escaped killer who kidnapped Danny’s sister and still haunts her dreams. Danny
faces many challenges, but one of the most attractive qualities about him, aside
from his sexy grin and piercing blue eyes, is his wicked sense of humor. The
Midnight Series is very dark. When I write a book this dark, I always try to
balance the drama out with light moments. Danny’s self-deprecating sense of
humor blossomed into the perfect counter to the story’s dark plot.
Mandy Brown has a terrible time resisting him, but she must. For Danny’s
determination to find the killer threatens to uncover a secret that endangers
Tell me. Can you resist a reformed bad boy?

The reformed bad boy is gong to be a lot more interesting and streetwise than someone who's been a goody or lived in a gilded cage!
