Travis Quinn is not a coward—except when it comes to sweet, softhearted Mara Escareno. After spending one beautiful, intense, and completely terrifying week of passion with her, he goes into full retreat mode. He’s still reeling from the car accident that destroyed his SEAL career and left him suffering from blackouts that are threatening to end his job with HORNET, and he knows he’s not the right kind of guy for a good girl like Mara. 

Having lived her entire life sheltered by her overbearing stepfather, all Mara wanted from Quinn was a forbidden taste of freedom. What she got was a positive pregnancy test and her family’s scorn. And when she calls Quinn to tell him about the baby, she leads his enemies directly to her front door. 

As Mara is swept up into the human trafficking trade of Eastern Europe, Quinn turns to HORNET for help. In his last mission as the team’s XO, he will risk everything to find her and their baby—his life, his honor, and his heart.

Broken Honor Countdown, Day 26: Moldova

I couldn't very well research Transnistria without also researching Moldova since their histories are so intimately entwined. This was one of the best videos I watched. (Again, it's a long one but if you're interested, give it a watch.)





Some facts about Moldova:



  • Moldova is the poorest country in Europe.
  • Population (excluding Transnistria): estimated to be around 3 million people.

  • The country was named for the Moldova River. Legend has it, the river was named after a prince's hound after the dog drowned in it.
  • Currency: Moldovan leu

  • Language: the official language is Romanian according to their 1991 Declaration of Independence, but there is some disagreement about that because the 1994 constitution states that Moldovan is the official language. Other languages spoken are Russian and English.
  • The largest city is the country's capital, Chișinău, with a population around 700,000.

  • Moldova is known for its wine. It's also home to the largest wine cellar in the world, Cricova, which is located in a town of the same name. It has 75 miles of tunnels for storage galleries.


And now I have some fun news! Starting today, I'm running a giveaway until release day. Do you want a signed copy of SEAL of Honor and a customized "My Book Boyfriend Wears Dog Tags" T-shirt? Check out the Rafflecopter below for your chance to win!

Broken Honor Countdown, Day 27: Places that Don't Exist

This was one of the very first documentaries I watched during those initial days of research and became a jumping off point for the plot of BROKEN HONOR. (It's a longer video, but if you have 20 minutes to kill, I recommend it. Fascinating stuff.)

Broken Honor Countdown, Day 28: Videos about Transnistria

If you've been following my blog, you know my enduring love of YouTube as a research source. It's always my first stop when I'm starting a new book. It gives me a sense of not only the sights in a particular country, but also the sounds. So of course as soon as I settled on Transnistria for the setting of BROKEN HONOR, I hopped over to YouTube to see what I could find.

Over the next few days, I'll share some of the videos I watched.
