Synopsis | Teaser | About the Author | Giveaway & Tour Stops


The lives of six orphans lie on the shoulders of a nurse and a wounded Special Ops soldier. . .

After losing her husband and unborn child in a car accident, Victoria Lafferty has devoted her life to helping South American children find homes in the US, but her plans are thrown into chaos by a rebellion in the country.

When his mission is compromised and he is shot and captured, Major John Dawson is kept alive so the rebel leader can “take care” of John himself for killing his brother.

Together Victory and John face the hostile jungle and the rebel leader, but will deep-seated guilt and a desire for revenge stand in the way of their life together?

Teaser: Excerpt

. . .somewhere in the bowels of the tiny country of San Gabriel Major John Dawson

draped his arm across Victoria’s shoulders. “Try to relax. We’ll need every ounce of strength we can pull up for what’s ahead.”

At first she stiffened at the feel of his arm across her body, but she knew he was only trying to help her relax so she didn’t pull away. She placed her head on his bare chest, closed her eyes, and pretended she wasn’t feeling the warmth of his skin against her face and inhaling his masculine scent.

Just as he’d done while they were in the hut, John made her feel safe. He had a quietness about him that calmed the tension in her. She’d felt it from the beginning, but anything beyond that was silliness on her part. Nothing about John Dawson was familiar to her. He was a stranger—someone whose life of killing and secret missions was totally foreign to her, someone who could not understand having a softer, gentler side as her former husband had. Bill would not hurt a living being. The string around her heart tightened as the warmth of the words of her husband surrounded her.

She didn’t want to think about the car accident that had erased their future together or to crawl into the black hole where misery and sorry ate at her soul so she thought about the joy that her orphans gave her. They’d given her direction and a reason for living. Now it was time to make sure she helped them find their own direction and a good life by getting them to the States.

Thanks for hosting!

Thank you so much for hosting my book SAVING THE CHILDREN on this, the last day of my virtual blog tour. I hope to meet some of your followers.

Fran McNabb said...

I'll be on the road today, but will try to check in with my phone.

Ben said...

Hi Fran, I really like the cover. What was the inspiration and how do you come up with the concepts for your book covers?

Rita Wray said...

Sounds like a great read.

Enchanting Reviews said...

The book sounds amazing!

Fran McNabb said...

Hi Ben, thanks for the questions. First, I simply gave the cover artist the setting and the general idea of the plot, and she came up with the artwork. I think she did a great job. I'm not a cover designer so unless I have a good idea of what I want, I generally let them come up with the ideas. I always pass on "items" that should be on the cover. Again, thanks for the question and for dropping in.
