Featuring Moving Target
Praise for the Elite Guardians Series
“A thrill ride from the first page until the last. Set aside some time, because you won’t want to put it down.”
--RT Book Reviews, 4½ stars, Top Pick
“With each new novel, Eason continues to get better. Always Watching is among her best.”
“A stellar beginning to what promises to be another terrific series from this inspirational author.”
“Lynette has written another fast-paced book--lace up your tennis shoes and grab a water bottle. It’s a race against death.”
--DiAnn Mills, author of Deadlock
“Readers will be looking forward to book #2 with a great deal of anticipation, which is exactly what happens when #1 is as good as this one.”
“Eason’s second Elite Guardians novel draws readers in with the mystery and warms their hearts with romance.”
In January, bestselling author Lynette Eason releases book three of the explosive Elite Guardians series that has readers hooked and asking for more. Eason’s heart-pounding suspense reaches new heights in Moving Target with a madman who has a dangerous game to play.
Quinn Holcombe’s friends throw him a surprise party—only Quinn doesn’t show up. They search and find little beyond evidence that Quinn and Maddy McKay just decided to take a long-overdue vacation. But it soon becomes apparent that they left against their will.
Maddy awakens in a cement room, dazed and confused as to where she is. It’s not long before she realizes that she has been captured by a madman, someone who chooses hunting humans as his method of revenge. Maddy faces the terrifying truth—if she doesn’t do something fast, she will become nothing more than helpless prey.
Maddy and Quinn are forced to run for their lives, hoping to find the killer before the next game begins. Because if they don’t win this game, they will lose their lives.
Continuing the Elite Guardians series, Eason hardly gives readers the time to catch their breaths before sweeping them away once again in this spellbinding suspense thriller. Readers will find themselves wracking their brains for answers and flipping furiously through pages in Eason’s newest novel.
Can you briefly describe your new novel?
Moving Target is a cross between Hunger Games and Survivor. At least that’s how it starts out.
What are some elements that you think need to be in every suspense novel?
Suspense! LOL. Conflict, a hero or a heroine or both, a goal, and someone who gets in the way of that goal (the villain). And, of course, a happy ending.
The Elite Guardians series is all about an all-female bodyguard agency. If you were in an all-female bodyguard agency, what would your special skills be?
Oh, this one took some thinking. I think reading body language. I’m really pretty good at it. LOL. I’m also a pretty good shot with a Glock 17 so . . .J
Where have you found the most inspiration for this series? Movies, books, music, etc.?
Lynette: I would say I’ve found the most inspiration simply from researching what bodyguards do, who they’re responsible for, and how they interact with their clients. Movies are always a good source of inspiration as well.
What faith message do you want people to take from Moving Target?
Lynette: Moving Target is about two people who have overcome so much in their past to get to where they presently are . . . and still have more to overcome. But it’s about seeing that God is in the small things. That he’s working in every aspect of our lives and is always waiting for reconciliation with those who desire it.
There is one more book coming in the Elite Guardians series. What can you tell us about this upcoming book?
Lynette: Chasing Secrets will release in the fall of 2017. It’s Haley’s story. She’s the last of the four bodyguard friends. I also introduce a new character, Steven Rothwell, who is Haley’s love interest—and the guy she allows to help her when it’s clear someone wants her dead.
