Hooked on Love and Freedom

MFRW Authors Blog

Welcome to this week’s Book Hooks blog hop where you can hop along and read six to eight sentence samples of various authors’ work. Here’s a little teaser from my romantic dystopian suspense novel, Deadly Exodus.

Ethan wrapped his arms around Nyla once he realized it would make too much noise to force her behind him. He eased her back while pushing Jared and Claire further into the shadows and behind some brush along the bank. He knew Nyla was attempting to shield him from being shot if they were seen and the gesture made it impossible for him to think clearly. No one had ever shown him such care and devotion. She was willing to lay down her life for him. He squeezed his eyes shut and held her tight, hoping he could protect her if they were discovered. 

Blurb:

Their love is forbidden…their lives in danger…

Trapped in a dystopian America where men are being exterminated and relationships are forbidden, Nyla is determined to change the course of her future and protect Ethan. Fleeing means abandoning her grandmother and imprisoned mother, but Nyla and her friends will do anything to escape an authoritarian government which has stolen their freedom and prohibits personal expression of any kind.

Desperate and dreaming of a new life, the group makes a run for the Mexican border through the inhospitable Big Bend region of Texas. Persistent patrols track and corner them, while a vast and desolate landscape inhabited by brazen predators tests their ability to survive.

Will they live to realize their dreams of a new life and a chance at love?
