Captain Dean Watters keeps his mission and his team in the forefront of his laser-like focus. So when Dean’s mission and team are threatened, his Special Forces training kicks into high gear. Failing to stop hackers from stealing national security secrets from the military’s secure computers and networks isn’t an option. Zahrah Zarrick is a missionary teacher to Afghan children in Mazar-e Sharif. And a target. When Zahrah is captured because of her expertise in quantum cryptology, compromising the US military, Dean is forced to crack the lockbox around his heart—a move that might come at the highest cost.


Ronie Kendig is an award-winning, bestselling author who grew up an Army brat. After twenty-plus years of marriage, she and her hunky hero husband have a full life with four children and a Maltese Menace in Northern Virginia. Author and speaker, Ronie loves engaging readers through her Rapid-Fire Fiction. Ronie can be found at www.roniekendig.com, on Facebook, Twitter (@roniekendig), and Goodreads.


Whew! I don't know how she does it, but Ronie Kendig keeps delivering military thrillers with the precision and focus of the Special Forces who stir up the pages of her trademark Rapid-Fire Fiction. Raptor 6 focuses on Captain Dean Watters, aka RaptorSix, the captain of the elite Raptor team, who Kendig introduced in her A Breed Apart military war dog series. Take a deep breath before you start reading this one, folks, because you likely won't have a chance for another one until the last page is turned! Kendig is a pro at transporting the reader to the scene of the non-stop action, making the sights, smells, and emotions surge off the pages. Gritty suspense, crisp dialogue, and explosive encounters will please the most ardent fan of military fiction, while the thread of romance and the relationships forged and strengthened by life-threatening encounters will attract those readers who never expected to pick up a book with a soldier on the cover. I'm already eager for the second book in this series, Hawk, coming in November!
