Have you ever wondered what it would be like to drive at break-neck speed through a tangle of traffic with lights flashing and siren blaring? Or to have someone’s life hanging in the balance while you were solely responsible? Or been trusted with a secret that could put your very life in peril? If so, welcome to the life of Analyn Michaels. She is the gutsy, yet endearing, protagonist in ESCALATION.
Life, as she knows it, in her small town of Exelon, Georgia, is about to change. Analyn Michaels enjoys her job as a paramedic most days. Of course, some days are worse than others are. On a particularly busy day, she responds to a shooting where the secret she learns could end her life. Add in a possessive ex, a new love interest, and a potential stalker, and you have a complete recipe for disaster.
Ana’s world turns upside down when the secret she divulges to a detective is leaked to the press. Trying to juggle work, home, and personal safety while figuring out who is stalking her has Ana near the breaking point. Should she put her trust in Cam and allow him to help, or is he a part of the problem? With the stalker’s behavior escalating and a menacing gang member showing up at every turn, Ana knows that her time is running out.
ESCALATION is complete at just over 98,000 words, and is the first in a planned series.
