Bella Chan is a good girl surrounded by alpha-males who aren’t afraid of danger. Unfortunately, that danger comes back to bite her. She can still feel the deadly grip of Hazeem’s hands wrapped around her neck. If Jack hadn’t shown up at Savage Security, she’d be dead. Then, in pure alpha-male fashion, Jack appoints himself her personal bodyguard, but Bella soon realizes that Jack isn’t there to protect her. He’s there to win her heart.
And now, in the aftermath of the attack, the men of Savage Security band together to hunt down the terrorists living on American soil. As they navigate through the intrigue and deception that camouflages their assailants, they also confront the treason that threatens the Nation’s defenses.

For the record, please state your name.

What inspired you to become a writer?

I’ve always thought it would be cool to write a book. In college, (while studying elementary
education) in my literacy courses, I’d peruse the picture books and nonfiction children’s
books and dream about writing my own book. At the time, it seemed impossible, but as the
internet expanded and companies like Amazon grew, the dream started to take shape and
become a reality. When my twin daughters went to kindergarten, I set aside time each day to
dedicate to writing. Surprisingly, the story that unfolded in my head was not for elementary
students, but it was better suited for young adults who enjoy supernatural thrillers. When I
finished the first series, The Scintillate Series, I transitioned to adult romantic suspense and
began The Savage Security Series.

What are your hobbies?

Writing is by far my most time-consuming hobby. The pull of the unfinished story is
undeniable. I crave time behind the computer screen so I can create or edit the alternate
realities that form in my head.

What interests are you into?

I enjoy taking trips with my daughters and husband. We live in North Carolina, so the beach
and the mountains are easily available. We also journey into Virginia to visit Busch Gardens
and Water Country in Williamsburg. We always get the summer passes and try to take as
many trips as possible.
Bella opened the door and stepped into Jack’s office. His arms were raised as he pulled a t-shirt
over his head. At the sight of his bare chest, her heart raced as heat flooded her. She’d never seen him
with his shirt off. His pecs and abs were clearly defined by hard ridges of muscle. A dusting of light hair
covered his chest. A happy trail descended from his bellybutton and disappeared into his cargo pants.
Jack caught Bella’s heated gaze as he eased the shirt down his torso. If she didn’t stop staring at
him like that he would pull his shirt off again and let her explore his body with more than just her eyes.
Rolling his shoulders to adjust the fit of the t-shirt as he tugged on the hem, he enjoyed the lust in
her eyes. “Glad you showed up,” he said.
Heat flushed Bella’s face as she ripped her gaze from his broad chest and focused on his eyes. His
smirk only embarrassed her more. He’d caught her ogling him like a horny teenager who’d never seen a
hot man before.
She sucked her bottom lip into her mouth and bit, unsure of what to say. I never knew what a
rockin’ bod you have just didn’t seem appropriate, so she went with, “Yeah,” as she fiddled with the
laptop in her hands. “Mike said you’d be leaving soon. Thought I’d say goodbye.” She inwardly groaned
at her lame response. At least she hadn’t told him to be careful.

Karen Tjebben lives in central North Carolina with her wonderful husband, twin daughters, and two hamsters. When her girls left for kindergarten, Karen discovered that she needed to fill her days with something, and that was the beginning of her writing career. She loves to create worlds filled with unique characters that she hopes will delight and raise goose bumps on her readers. In her free time, she enjoys traveling with her husband and seeing the world through her daughters’ eyes.
