Blurb for Every Deep Desire (Book 1 in the Deadly Force Series)

EDD-300

 

He’s taking it all back
His honor, his freedom, and the woman he loves

Rafe Montfort was a decorated Green Beret, the best of the best, until a disastrous mission and an unforgivable betrayal destroyed his life. Now, this deadly soldier has returned to the sultry Georgia swamps to reunite with his brothers, and take back all he lost. But Juliet must never know the truth behind what he’s done…or the dangerous secret that threatens to take him from her forever.

It took Juliet Capel eight long years to put her life back together after her husband was taken from her. Now Rafe is back, determined to protect her at any cost, and it’s not just her heart that’s in danger. The swamps hold a secret long buried and far deadlier than either of them could have imagined…

 

  1. Tell us about your hero. Give us one of his strengths and one of his weaknesses.

I love Rafe. And not just because of my cover! J I love Rafe because he’s made a ton of mistakes yet accepts responsibility for all of the pain he’s caused to the people he loves. (And he’s caused a lot!) I think the fact that his choices have caused him more suffering than anyone else in the story helps build reader empathy. He carries so much remorse and regret, he doesn’t seem to care that he was sent to a Russian prison for a year, and then transferred to Leavenworth where he sat in solitary for another nine months. He feels he deserves his punishment and is willing to take it – until it puts Juliet in danger.

And Juliet is his weakness. Nothing—not ex-Green Berets, a secretive army of assassins who date back to pagan Ireland, nor a brutal gun runner—will prevent Rafe from protecting his wife. Even if it means giving up his own life.

  1. Tell us about your heroine. Give us one of her strengths and one of her

I also love Juliet. She’s a woman who’s suffered the pains of poverty, humiliation, and betrayal yet is still willing to fight for what she wants in life. And what she wants is to own her own landscape architecture business and to live life according to her own terms. She’s strong in character, smart, and sassy. She’s also willing to do hard things to protect those she loves.

But she comes by her weakness honestly: Juliet cannot rely on another person for anything. She is generous and kind and hardworking, but she refuses to accept help from others. She cannot risk trusting people with anything about her life—including her heart. And when Rafe returns, her character flaw throws them into a danger they’re not sure they’ll ever escape from.

  1. Please tell my readers a little bit about your series and book.

 

EVERY DEEP DESIRE is the first book in the Deadly Force romantic suspense series where ex-Green Berets and their smart, sexy heroines redeem Shakespeare’s greatest love stories.

 Sharon Wray's Office Space

EVERY DEEP DESIRE is a romantic suspense retelling of Romeo and Juliet. In this sexy action-packed version, the lovers from feuding families must face a team of disgraced ex-Green Berets, a brutal arms dealer, and a secretive army of assassins.

 

But the heart of this book is the love story between Rafe Montfort and his wife Juliet Capel. A couple who grew up together, married young, and were torn apart by forces far more powerful than they could’ve ever imagined.

 

Juliet Capel is a heroine who survived great hardships after her husband left her and the last thing she wants to do is help her recently-returned ex-husband defeat his enemies. Despite the fact that Rafe has come back to her as an incredibly sexy, full-grown man, she’s afraid to risk her heart.

As she learns about the horror of Rafe’s life for the past eight years, her resolve wavers. What Juliet doesn’t realize is that even if she agrees to help him fight his devils, and they succeed, she could still lose him forever.

  1. What inspired your latest book?

A few things inspired this series and this book. I’ve always been fascinated by Shakespeare’s love stories and have always wanted to rewrite the endings of his tragedies so everyone would get their HEA.

EVERY DEEP DESIRE is a retelling of Romeo and Juliet. Book 2, ONE DARK WISH, redeems Othello and Desdemona’s story. And Deadly Force Book 3 (aka DF3 for now—poor untitled DF3) is a “what-if” story of Hamlet and Ophelia’s doomed love story.

Other elements in this series come from the Fenian Cycle of Poetry, specifically the legend of Fionn Mac Cumhaill. Fionn was a mythic warrior in pagan Ireland who led a band of warriors, known as the Fianna, who were so brutal that the Roman legions turned around and left.

The stories of the Fianna include the fact that they speak only in verse from the Twelve Books of Irish Poetry, they train naked in the winter, and must each suffer through a gauntlet of 80 men, each holding two weapons. Some say Fionn and his Fianna army is the reason why Rome never invaded Ireland.

I took these old stories and wondered, “What if the Fianna was still real? A secret army that works for itself—with no allegiance to any country or government? What would that look like? Would they also speak in verse? Train naked? Suffer a gauntlet?” (the answer to all of these questions is yes!)

And so the Fianna army in the Deadly Force series was born – with Rafe being one of their warriors who tithed his life, until the end of his existence, to the Prince. The Prince being the current day leader of the Fianna – the current day Fionn Mac Cumhaill.

These books belong to Shakespeare and Fionn Mac Cumhaill!

  1. How far do you plan ahead?

I plan some things out VERY far ahead. I know what happens to the heroine of book 4 (which isn’t written yet) in book 8. I know what secondary characters will make it to the end of the series, and which ones won’t. I even know who gets to marry the love of their life, and who will end up alone. Having this kind of power over an imaginary world is awesome!

 

  1. Do you have a view in your writing space? What does your space look like? 

I write on my iMac in a tiny corner of my kitchen, and my dog Donut sleeps next to me. My desk is pressed up against a glass door so I can look out into my garden. Right now, it’s winter and everything is dead and brown here in Virginia. But come spring, it will be filled with flowers and birds. I use the kitchen table behind me to lay out my plotting things—notebooks, posters, post-it notes, etc. At the end of the day, it all goes back into a small rolling cart I push into the mud room near the garage.

One day I’ll have a big office with bookshelves and a place to organize everything. But this works for now. And at least Donut and I can watch for birds and squirrels.

  1. Was your road to publication fraught with peril or a walk in the park?

It wasn’t a walk in the park, but I wasn’t eaten by alligators either. J I started writing and joined RWA in March 2004 and Sourcebooks published my first book in March 2018. Within those 14 years, I wrote ten manuscripts, finaled in the Golden Heart 8 times, and had hundreds of rejections.

Along the way, I continued learning and querying and reading and adapting until I finally had a manuscript that was ready to meet the world. For some it’s an easier journey, for others it’s harder. But the journey takes as long as it takes, and it’s different for each of us. The most important thing to remember is what Theodore Roosevelt said: “Comparison is the thief of joy.”

  1. Do you have any words of inspiration for aspiring authors?

You are never too old, too young, too anything to start reaching for your goals or making your dreams come true. If you want to do something—anything—go do it. And remember that done is better than perfect!
