About Blood & Lies
While JD Miller is chaperoning a group of teens on a mission trip to Kherson, Ukraine, one of the boys vanishes from the group without a trace.
Leandra Davis hasn't seen her father in over twenty years when he shows up and asks her to fly to Ukraine to join the search for a brother she's never met. Anger at her absentee father compels her to walk out and ignore his pleas, but anguish at the thought of her brother all alone in a foreign country, at the mercy of kidnappers, convinces her to abandon her life in Odessa, Texas and join the search.
When she and her best friend fly to Ukraine to search for the kidnapped teen, she meets the passionate paramedic, JD Miller. Together, they search for the missing young man and begin to uncover deadly secrets Leandra's father wants to keep hidden.
A large, calloused hand clamped over her mouth and something sharp dug into to her side. "Meddlesome big sister," a gruff, male voice rasped in her ear. The stench of cigarettes on his breath made her want to retch, and her heart rate soared. What did this guy want? She jerked her head to the side, but the man's huge hand only clamped down tight enough to leave bruises, so she clawed at it. With her mouth covered, she couldn't get enough air. He was going to smother her--if he didn't stab her to death first.
"You'll stop struggling if you know what's good for you. Time to learn a lesson." A searing pain sliced through her side and middle, and she clutched at her abdomen--wet and sticky. "Tell Daddy if my boss doesn't get his property back, we'll send both of his children to him piece by piece."
The man removed his hand, and she turned, but he was already gone. She groaned in pain and held her belly. He'd sliced her skin from the left side all the way across to the outer right flank and blood soaked her clothes.
