In January 2018, bestselling author Lynette Eason introduced readers to the St. John family in Oath of Honor, the first book in the Blue Justice series. In Called to Protect, book lovers will meet another member of this law enforcement family in this fast and furious ride that will have hearts pumping from the very start.
For the past year, Chloe St. John has been working as a K-9 cop with her Dutch shepherd partner, Hank. When a serious case of human trafficking with connections to her missing cousin lands in her lap, she must mobilize all her resources before another girl goes missing.
Deputy US Marshall Blake MacCallum’s daughter is missing. He has been ordered to kill the judge that he’s protecting and tell no one about his daughter’s disappearance or she will die. Chloe and Hank are asked to be part of the task force assembled to bring down the traffickers and help Blake rescue his daughter. Chloe finds herself attracted to the silent, suffering man, but thanks to her previous poor judgment with relationships, she wonders if she can trust him. And can Blake trust himself around this firecracker of a woman?
What is ONE thing you’ve learned the hard way so that others don’t have to?
I’ve learned everything the hard way! LOL. I’ve learned that writing is a wonderful career if you are so fortunate to find a publisher or two who love your stories. Once you’ve proven yourself, I’ve also learned that some publishers will accept as many manuscripts as you can write. Unfortunately, this can put great strain on a person’s physical well-being. If I could go back and change anything, it would be to take things a bit slower and not write quite as many books in the time frame I did it in. I’d stretch things out a bit more and do more to protect my health. Like work out more at the gym (which I’m doing now with a personal trainer) and eat better instead of grabbing whatever was available because I didn’t take the time to cook. And so on. Fortunately, I’m taking steps to remedy that, but years of neglect is hard to fix! So, if I can pass on that bit of wisdom—take care of yourself during the process! — to a “just starting out author” then I can only hope he/she will listen and heed the warning!
