CFBA Blog Tour - Ronie Kendig and Nightshade

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Barbour Books (July 1, 2010)
by Ronie Kendig


RONIE KENDIG has been married since 1990 to a man who can easily be defined in classic terms as a hero. She has four beautiful children. Her eldest daughter is 16 this year, her second daughter will be 13, and her twin boys are 10. After having four children, she finally finished her degree in December 2006. She now has a B.S. in Psychology through Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA. Getting her degree is a huge triumph for both her and her family--they survived!

This degree has also given her a fabulous perspective on her characters and how to not only make them deeper, stronger, but to make them realistic and know how they'll respond to each situation. Her debut novel, Dead Reckoning released March 2010 from Abingdon Press. And her Discarded Heroes series begins in July from Barbour with the first book entitled Nightshade.

After a tour of duty in a war-torn country, embattled former Navy SEAL Max Jacobs finds himself discarded and alienated from those he loves as he
struggles with war-related PTSD. His wife, Sydney, files a restraining order against him and a petition for divorce. Max is devastated.

Then a mysterious a man appears. He says he's organizing a group that recycles veterans like Max. It's a deep-six group known as Nightshade. With
the chance to find purpose in life once again, Max is unable to resist the call of duty and signs on.

The team handles everything with precision and lethal skill...until they're called upon to rescue a missionary family from a rebel-infested jungle and
avoid a reporter hunting their identities.

Will Max yield his anger and pride to a force greater than

I thought Ronie's debut novel, Dead Reckoning, was amazing, but I had no idea the treasure that awaited me tucked within the pages of Ronie's second novel, Nightshade. What a fantastic debut to her Discarded Heroes series. The jungle came alive, the covert operations took me right along with them, and the action blended with the romance in perfect unison.

Vibrant, full of adventure, emotion, and real life, and featuring enough surprises to keep you turning pages all night long. If you're looking for a book to help you sleep, don't pick up this one. You're in for a long, sleepless night with Nightshade. But you won't regret it for one minute. In fact, you'll close the back cover and wish you had the sequel right beside you.

Ronie, you've done an amazing job! Keep it up, girl.

My pleasure, Ronie. Gotta help you new authors by spreading the word. Was only 2 years ago that I was there, and I'm still working hard to get established.
