Laura Griffin | The Latest in the NYT Bestselling Tracers Series
January 26, 2015
Readers always ask me where I get my story ideas. I got my start as a newspaper
reporter, and often my inspiration comes from current events. Iâ€™m constantly
skimming headlines and asking myself, â€śWhat if...?â€ť
My new book BEYOND LIMITS was sparked after I read a news article about
Navy SEALs and wondered what would happen if one of these highly trained
warriors learned about an impending attack on American soil. Would he be able to
leave it to someone else to handle, or would he feel compelled to intervene?
LIMITS opens with Navy SEAL Derek Vaughn, who is on a harrowing rescue
mission overseas when he finds evidence of an attack being planned in the city
where he grew up. He returns home determined to help thwart disaster. Derek
decides his best way in to the FBIâ€™s investigation is to manipulate a woman he
cares aboutâ€”Special Agent Elizabeth LeBlancâ€”into giving him inside information.
With the help of the forensic experts at the Delphi Center, Derek and Elizabeth
embark on a race against time to stop a deadly plot.
LIMITS is the eighth book in my Tracers series. Derek and Elizabeth first met in SCORCHED,
which won the 2013 RITA Award for romantic suspense. Readers have been asking
for Derek and Elizabethâ€™s story, and Iâ€™m thrilled to share it with you!
To celebrate the new book Iâ€™m giving away a Tracers tote bag and a signed BEYOND
LIMITS bookmark. Leave a comment for a chance to win!
An excerpt from BEYOND LIMITS
She crossed the hotel room with a flutter in her stomach and peered through the
peephole. For a moment, she just stared. Square jaw, erect posture, ridiculously
muscled body. In her memories, sheâ€™d made him less impressive, more
average-looking. But of course, that was wishful thinking. There was nothing
average about this man, and he was standing outside her room, refusing to go away.
He looked directly at the peephole and her heart skittered. He knew she was
gawking. She pulled open the door and her heart did another little dance. Sheâ€™d
forgotten his eyes, too--whiskey brown with gold flecks. The look in them now
was pure determination.
God help her, heâ€™d come here on a mission...
