They always wanted to fix him. Didn’t they realize there was no fixing his kind of broke?

Haunted by the loss of his beloved fiancée a year and a half ago at the hands of a terrorist cell, ex-Green Beret Rob Fabik doesn’t know how to let go. The sounds and sights of her death replay in his mind, and he tortures himself with the guilt he feels over not being able to save her life, distracting himself with alcohol and women.

Attending Harvard University, Lola Sardeson is a down-to-earth, rich girl who is tired of living under her father’s thumb. One night out with friends quickly turns into a nightmare as she is kidnapped from a busy Boston nightclub. Her nightmare intensifies as she learns that the Ortiz Cartel sells young, innocent girls into the sex-slave trade.

The Unit’s mission is to rescue Lola from the nefarious clutches of the Ortiz Cartel. From the instant Rob sees Lola, she touches something deep inside him, drawing out his protective nature. These feelings only serve to intensify the guilt he feels over losing his dead fiancée.

Forced by circumstance under the same roof, Lola inspires Rob to grow stronger. Can he suppress his feelings for Lola, or will guilt consume him alive? Can he forgive himself for not saving his fiancée? Can Rob save Lola and protect her from the greedy hands of the Ortiz Cartel?

Q & A with Author Sarah Greyson

Tell us a little bit about your main characters.
Rob is an ex-Green Beret who lost the love of his life to a terrorist cell in the first novel “Closer.” Lizzie, Rob’s dead fiancée died a horrible death. Her death plagues his mind, torturing him with sounds and images. To cope with the guilt he feels over not being able to save her, he turns towards alcohol and women. Tony, Michael, and Steve are members of The Unit and secondary characters in the novel. The men all served five tours in war-torn Afghanistan together during their time in the Army.

Lola is a down-to-earth, rich girl who attends Harvard University because her father wanted her to. She has spent her life living under her father’s thumb and relishes the freedom that college life brings. Her father still tells her who she has to befriend, but she is living on her own in a brownstone that her father purchased for her and has a good group of girlfriends. Lola is enjoying her freedom one evening at a Boston nightclub when she is kidnapped by the nefarious Ortiz Cartel.

Describe your ideal writing spot.
Ideally, I would have my desk set up next to a window that overlooked the ocean. Being able to smell the salt air and watch the waves crash onto the shore would keep me in the zone longer.

Who designed the covers for your book and what was that process like for you as the author?
Marisa Shor with Cover Me Darling photographed and designed my cover for Stronger. As an author, the process is one of the easier things I have had to do. I explained to her that I wanted, an almost kiss shot, for the cover and left the rest up to her.

What is the best advice you have been given?
Hire a PA. That way I can keep writing and not be bogged down with the million other things indie authors have to do.

How do you keep busy when you're not writing?
If I am not writing, I am reading.

If you could have any superhuman ability, what would you choose and why?
Teleportation: I would love the ability to transport myself to any place in the world with just a thought.

Which do you prefer: hard/paperbacks or ebooks?
I prefer paperbacks, unless I absolutely have to have the book on my bookshelf, then I need the hardback. However, I read so much that I have found it necessary to invest in a Kindle because I do not have room to keep all of the books I read and still live in my home. I can’t give away a book I have purchased; it is my obsession.
