Coming Soon: Affliction—2017 Daphne du Maurier Contest Finalist

Severe allergic reaction? Viral or bacterial infection? No one knows.

But as a strange affliction spreads across Sarum, one thing becomes clear—it is deadly.

 Colin McKenna has one goal—finding his sister, Rosie. His search leads him to her last employer, Burton Pharmaceuticals, the company that created a vaccine capable of ending the affliction. When his trip to the lab fails to produce answers, he seeks out Rosie’s best friend, Maggie Olsen.

Maggie fears she has contracted the strange ailment making others sick. An infectious disease specialist, she suspects the condition is connected to Burton’s latest drug extract. However, she’ll need more than just a theory to convince authorities. Will she find proof before millions die?

Colin is the brother Rosie never mentioned to Maggie. Despite her concerns and her attraction to the lethal-looking stranger, she decides to partner with him after she’s attacked by Burton’s security team. They must rely on each other as they face a threat capable of destroying not only their growing attraction but all of humanity.

An interview with Pamela

Question: Who is Pamela Varnado?

I grew up in Virginia and New Jersey alongside my brother and five sisters. Though my childhood wasn’t exactly carefree, it shaped me into a strong, compassionate woman. Sadly, my brother passed away at a fairly young age, but I’m still close to my sisters. A middle child, I took on the role of peacemaker in the family. My ‘we are a team and must work together’ mentality led me to participate in sports in high school. After graduating I joined the military and was exposed to the world that challenged all my preconceived ideas.

Question: What type of stories do you write?
I write sexy contemporary, science fiction, and suspense novels. They all lean toward the darker side, but a hint of sarcastic humor is also important to me. If I’m sitting on the edge of my seat while I am writing, I know I’ve created a scene filled with tension.

Question: What makes a kiss passionate?
A great kiss is more than a sexual encounter. It begins with a strong emotional connection and encompasses more than just a mouth and tongue. It involves the neck, the breasts, the stomach and other erogenous areas on the body. It involves passion. It involves all the four senses. It involves a total commitment. It involves magic.

Describe your perfect hero.
To me, a hero doesn’t focus on societal norms when making decisions. He does whatever it takes to protect those he loves. The family is important to him. A defender of the weak, he’s willing to sacrifice his own freedom to help those in need. And while he’s protective of his woman, he’s not afraid to allow her to make her own decisions and travel her own path. Together, angst, strength, compassion, and sex appeal create the perfect hero.

Describe your perfect heroine.
My perfect heroine is smart and spunky. She exhibits a wide range of emotions and physical abilities. Determined, she knows what she wants and is not afraid to go after it. The themes of her life center around love, truth, and justice.

In the near future, a dark secret could determine the fate of mankind

Deception (A prequel)

Blurb
During a scientific expedition into the rainforest to study indigenous plants, diagnostician Rosie McKenna faces her most challenging medical mystery. A bizarre skin condition is spreading through Burton Pharmaceuticals’ team members. A condition she can’t diagnose.

As she struggles the save the patients inside a top-secret field hospital she soon learns the scientific expedition is a cover for something far more dangerous than the hungry jaguars prowling the lush landscape. Something, that if allowed to move beyond the forest—could possibly change the evolution of mankind.

Isolated and frightened, she doesn’t know whom to trust. Trevor the career-driven botanist who wants to be more than just friends? Or Romas the magnetic security expert who causes her to question her own sanity?

What reviewers are saying?

Deception drew me in from the beginning. It is a perfect prequel to what I am sure to be an amazing series. I love that it kept me interested and was so well written that I even felt what Rosie was feeling through out the book. I am definitely excited to read affliction and whatever books may come after.

Very intriguing. Made me want to read next in series.

The lush writing of this author is icing on the cake for this novella. There was enough intrigue to keep me from putting the story down before I finished it. You won’t want the story to end.
