Cover Reveal for Crew Member -- Betrayed

Hello everyone!  It's almost November.  Do you know what that means?  I'll turn another year older, AND my third book from Bell Bridge Books becomes available. 

BETRAYED was my first chance to delve into emotions I've never personally experienced.  I've never known what it's like to suffer one of the cruelest emotions of the human condition.  To trust another completely and have that individual or individuals conspire against you  -- to be BETRAYED. 

I have a bit more understanding thanks to my protagonist Irene Turner.  Irene is vulnerable, yet tough as nails.  She's also someone I'd be proud to call friend.  I'm still writing around the theme TOO CLOSE TO HOME, and the places I've lived.  Where THE PAST CAME HUNTING takes place in Colorado Springs, DEADLY RECALL in Albuquerque, I place BETRAYED in Denver, Colorado.

I hope you'll join me as I introduce a new cast of characters in this single-title Suspense as they fight to earn their well-deserved happily-ever-afters.


When Oklahoma City resident, Irene Turner learns the incomprehensible, that the stillborn baby she delivered 28-years earlier is alive, she takes the evidence to where her daughter now lives—Denver Colorado.

Detective Nate Paxton can’t believe what Irene’s evidence shows him. Kinsey Masters, a world-class athlete, raised by a prominent Denver family, an unattainable woman he’s known and loved for years, was stolen at birth.  

Irene Turner, Nate Paxton, and Kinsey Masters are united in a sordid conspiracy. But, it’s who the conspirators turn out to be that will leave the trio shaken and in disbelief. Irene’s foundation of trust will be ripped from its core, as kidnapping, murder, and a thirst for revenge lead her to learn she’s been betrayed.

November 18th can't get here soon enough for me, and I'm pleased to announce that Bell Bridge has made the story available for preorders.


Today one commenter will be entered to win an e-book copy of BETRAYED upon its release, and their choice of my backlist, Deadly Recall, a 2014 Epic finalist in the suspense/thriller category, or my debut book, The Past Came Hunting.

  1. Sounds like a page-turner, Donnell!

    I don't care if the setting is real or fictitious, but I do love it when the setting is so well-described it permeates the whole story. Besides, if a fictitious setting is awesome enough, either Disney or Universal Studios will bring it to life!
