ABOUT THE BOOK

https://amzn.to/2ImvVqx Title: Vigilant 
Series: The Night Guardians, Book 1  
Author: Sara Davison 
Publisher: Mountain Brook Ink 
Release Date: June 1, 2019

She must choose between the man who represents the law and the one who may have taken it into his own hands.

Neglected by her parents for most of her life, Nicole Hunter keeps everyone, especially men, at arms’ length. So when Attorney Gage Kelly walks into the diner where she is waiting tables one evening, she fights her attraction to him with everything she has.

Gage and his brother Holden grew up in an abusive home, and Gage has baggage of his own. But the connection between him and Nicole is too strong to ignore, and Gage manages to convince them both that their relationship is worth the risk.

Then children begin disappearing in the night.

When Detective Daniel Grey starts to close in on the child snatcher, and enlists Nicole’s help, she faces her deepest fear. Everything and everyone she has clung to so tightly could be ripped from her, leaving her completely alone.

Except for one.

 INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR SARA DAVIDSON


Can you tell us a little about yourself?

I am a follower of Jesus Christ and am blessed and proud to be a Canadian, born and raised in Ontario. I dated my husband Michael for ten weeks before we got engaged, and we have been happily married now for twenty-three years. We have three kids, two boys aged 15 and 20 and a 19 year-old-daughter. I have had a life-long love affair with reading and writing, and spend most of my time during the week either writing or editing my own or other people’s books, along with mentoring new writers.

What do you do besides writing?

In my spare time, I enjoy meeting friends for coffee, spending time with my family, watching movies, walking my dogs, going to one of my book clubs (I belong to three) or writers’ groups (two), or being involved with the women’s ministry at my church. I am also a big sports fan (Go Blue Jays, Maple Leafs, and Raptors!) and my youngest son and I love watching or going to live games together.

Do you have images you can share that come close to how you picture your characters? Do you like to find visual inspiration for your characters before or during your writing process?

I don’t usually, but for Vigilant, I actually have come across pictures that reminded me of the three main characters—Sienna Miller for Nicole, Adrian Grenier for Gage, and Brant Daugherty for Daniel.  


What are some songs that you listened to or inspired you while writing your book?

Normally I wouldn’t have an answer for this one, as I can’t listen to music as I write and don’t normally associate music with my stories. However, “Worn” by Tenth Avenue North has always moved me, and every time I hear it I imagine it in the background as the last scene of Vigilant plays across the big screen (I can dream, right?)

What message would you like readers to ultimately take away from the book?

The main message I always want readers to take away from my books is that, whatever they are going through, whatever challenges or tragedies or suffering they are or have endured, they are never alone. Life is hard, but God is so good, he loves us so much, he showers us with grace and mercy, and he promises that he will never leave us or forsake us. That theme runs through everything I write, so hopefully readers will pick up on that and gain hope from it.

What can we look forward to coming from you in the future?

I have three books coming out in the next year or two. I have submitted book two of The Night Guardians Series, Guarded, to my publisher and am about half done writing book three. I am also privileged to be part of an amazing group of authors that is putting out The Mosaic Collection, a series of contemporary Christian novels. Those books will release one a month beginning August 2019. My contribution to the series, the romantic suspense novel Lost Down Deep, will come out in February 2020.

Blog Tour & Giveaway: The Seven Trilogy by Sara Davidson


Seven Trilogy blog tour

Welcome to the blog tour and giveaway for The Seven Trilogy, romantic suspense novels by Sara Davison, hosted by JustRead tours!

ABOUT THE BOOKS

The End Begins - final cover Title: The End Begins (Seven Trilogy #1)  
Author: Sara Davison  
Publisher: Ashberry Lane/WhiteFire Publishing
Genre: Romantic Suspense

One of them is a prisoner and one of them is free. The same one.

Bookstore owner Meryn O’Reilly and Army Captain Jesse Christensen are on opposite sides of a battle. When martial law is declared, Jesse and his platoon are sent to Meryn’s city to keep an eye on the Christians and make sure they are not stepping outside of the confines of the law.

Fiery and quick-tempered, Meryn chafes under the curfew and other restrictions to her freedom. Jesse is equally amused, intrigued, and terrified by her spirit, knowing she could find herself in prison if she shows defiance to the wrong soldier.

His worst fears are realized when she commits a crime he cannot protect her from. Now they both face an uncertain future, and the very real threat of losing everything, including their lives. With time running out, Jesse works feverishly to convince the authorities to show leniency to Meryn. And to convince her that love can overcome any barrier that lies between them.  

PURCHASE: Goodreads | Amazon

The Darkness Deepens 1 (1) Title: The Darkness Deepens (Seven Trilogy #2)  
Author: Sara Davison  
Publisher: Ashberry Lane/WhiteFire Publishing
Genre: Romantic Suspense

(formerly The Dragon Roars)

Their Secrets Protect Them … But Secrets are Hard to Keep

No one in the army can find out that Captain Jesse Christensen has become a believer. He and bookstore owner Meryn O’Reilly are forced to meet in secret, facing imprisonment or worse if they are found together. Their relationship deepens, but so does Lieutenant Gallagher’s hatred for the Christians in their city. As Gallagher’s power grows, it becomes clear that his connections go much further up the chain of command than anyone realized, putting all believers, especially Jesse, in extreme danger.

Meryn wants to give her heart to Jesse fully, but her past holds her back. Although circumstances conspire to keep her silent, she needs to tell him her secret. When he finds out what she has been keeping from him, nothing will stand between them anymore.

Or nothing will ever be the same.

Jesse Christensen is out of the army, but the real battle has just begun. Major Gallagher has taken over the city and his oppression of believers has intensified. But is Gallagher acting in a professional capacity, or is he carrying out a personal vendetta?

Meryn O’Reilly faces a dark and uncertain future after shocking revelations devastate her life. She is determined to follow God’s call, but her plans could cost her everything. She and Jesse struggle to surrender fully to a God who is always in control, even when circumstances suggest otherwise.

With the world descending into chaos around them, Meryn and Jesse face the greatest barrier to their love yet—a barrier that may prove too strong to breach.

EXCERPT

Meryn glanced back at the store. Pain pricked her chest like the tiny slivers of glass that had dug into her fingers when she’d brushed them off the brick.

The captain must have seen it on her face, because he followed her gaze to the shattered window, pieces scattered all over the sidewalk. “I’m sorry, Meryn.”

“No.” She shook her head. “I’m the one who’s sorry. When you first came in the store, I was angry and frustrated about losing my Bibles and all those books.” Her voice broke and she drew in a quivering breath. 

“Once again I took it out on you, but it wasn’t your fault. You didn’t take them and, even if you had, you would have been following someone else’s orders and doing your job, even if it wouldn’t have been easy for you. I … admire that.”

When he smiled, the corners of his eyes crinkled. “We seem to always be apologizing to each other.”

“Yes, we do.”

He tilted his head. “Maybe that’s it. Maybe we’ve found it.”

“What?”

“The ray of light that counteracts the darkness of all this pain.”

“What is it?” She held her breath.

“Forgiveness.”

Meryn let the power and beauty of the word brush over her skin like the breeze had a few moments earlier. “I think you might be right.”
