Volition is coming!

Back when I was still working as an editor, I had the privilege of working with writer-friend Elle Struass (link), a.k.a., Lee Strauss.

At the time, she was finishing up Perception (link), the first book in a science fiction romance series. It is awesome! (See below.)

She's now finishing up Book 2, Volition (link), and squee! It sounds awesome, too! I can't wait to read it.

Here's the cover and info and how you can WIN a $200 gift card:

What doesn't kill you...

Zoe Vanderveen is on the run with her captor turned rescuer, Noah Brody. They're in love. Or at least that’s what he tells her. 

Her memories have returned but her feelings are dreamlike—thin and fleeting. Her heart can’t be trusted. Just look at what happened with Taylor Blake.

Senator Vanderveen’s new team of cyborg agents are in hot pursuit, and a reward for their capture is broadcast nationwide.
Record breaking cold and snow hinder their escape. Someone dies helping them.

And their fight for survival has only begun.

To celebrate Lee Strauss is giving away a $200 Amazon, Nook or iTunes gift card!

Read on to find out how to enter.

VOLITION is the exciting continuation of Noah and Zoe's story from Perception.

 Eternal Life is To Die For

Seventeen year old Zoe Vanderveen is a GAP—a
genetically altered person. She lives in the security of a walled city on prime water-front property along side other equally beautiful people with extended life spans.

Her brother Liam is missing.

Noah Brody is a natural who lives on the outside. He leads protests against the GAPs and detests the widening chasm they’ve created between those who have and those who don’t.  He doesn’t like girls like Zoe and he has good reason not to like her specifically.

Zoe’s carefree life takes a traumatic turn.  She’s in trouble and it turns out that Noah, the last guy on earth she should trust, is the only one who can help her.

 Want to read PERCEPTION? It's available on Amazon, Kobo, itunes, and Nook.

That's a super-catchy line: ...the last guy on earth she should trust, is the only one who can help her.
