Pub. Date: May 18, 2020
Publisher: Entangled: Amara
Formats: Paperback, eBook
Pages: 300

Leah Giancarelli makes balancing her new role as a single mom look easy, but she’d have crumbled if not for her late husband’s best friend, Marcus. She has her issues with HORNET, an elite hostage rescue team—after all, Danny would still be alive if he’d never accompanied them on their last mission—but Marcus has always been by her side, a strong shoulder to lean on…

Until, after one impulsive kiss, he’s so much more.

Eaten alive by guilt, Marcus takes off, leaving both HORNET and Leah behind. Alone is easier. Safer. Because his feelings for Leah are all kinds of wrong, the worst kind of betrayal, and he can’t trust himself not to act on them.

But Danny’s death was only the beginning. Whoever hired the hitman is looking for something, and they think Leah knows where it is...

Each book in the HORNET series is STANDALONE:
* SEAL of Honor
* Honor Reclaimed
* Broken Honor
* Code of Honor
* Reckless Honor
* Honor Avenged


Hey Tonya! First I want to say welcome to Two Chicks on Books I’m glad you could stop by for a chat! HONOR AVENGED sounds AWESOME and I can’t wait for everyone to read it!
Glad to be here!

For the readers: can you tell us a little bit about the HONOR AVENGED and the characters?

HONOR AVENGED is the 6th book in my HORNET series (but it can be read as a standalone!) It focuses on Marcus and Leah as they cope with the loss of the man they both loved: Danny. Marcus feels like he’s betraying his best friend by having feelings for Leah, so he stays far away from her until a threat to her life brings them back together and forces them to deal with their relationship and their grief.

What are you working on now?

A few different things. I’m working on EDGE OF HONOR (HORNET book 7—the last of the series!) I’m also playing around with a romantic suspense trilogy about three brothers looking for their missing father in Alaska and planning a new thriller series about a woman and her search and rescue dog.

Were any of the characters in the book inspired by people from your real life?

Nope. My character are never based on real people. They’re all made up.

Who was your favorite character to write? What about your least favorite?

In HONOR AVENGED, I very much enjoyed writing Marcus’s mom, Regina. She’s an interesting lady.

My favorite character in the entire HORNET series is Jean-Luc Cavalier. He’s just so much fun. I had a blast with his book, RECKLESS HONOR (HORNET book 5), and he lightens up any book he appears in. My least favorite to write was Harvard. (Sorry, kid!) I’m never writing another hacker book.

What is your favorite passages/scenes in HONOR AVENGED?

There’s a scene toward the end of the book when Ian (the team’s explosives expert who everyone not-so-affectionately calls “psycho”) tries to cheer up Marcus (a movie lover) by quoting The Princess Bride. This is soooo out of character for Ian and he messes up the quote, which makes Marcus laugh. It’s a great tender moment between two very broken people. I love it.

What kind of research did you have to do for the story?

Oh, just the usual stuff: the civil war raging in Central African Republic, illegal diamond and gold mining, black market organ trade...

(Yep. I’m on a government watch list. No doubt about it.)

Other things I researched that are less likely to land me on a TSA no-fly list: surfing, real estate in Malibu and Bali, and the stages of grief.

Who is your ultimate book boyfriend?

I love me a snarky guy. Even better if he’s more than a little bit broken and uses humor to deflect. I also love a tortured hero. Two of my favorites are Rhage and Zsadist from JR Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood.

What inspired you to write romance?

I’m not really sure. It was always just a given I’d write romance. I was fairly young when I started reading romance. Probably too young, but I’d sneak down to my grandma’s basement and read through a box of old Harlequin historicals, and I loved them. For a while in middle school, I flirted with the idea of writing mysteries, which I adore, but even my mysteries contained romantic subplots. Then in early high school I discovered romantic suspense (Iris Johansen!) and never looked back.

Lightning Round Questions

What are you reading right now? Or what do you have on your TBR that you’re dying to read?

I’m always reading and/or listening to more than one book at any given time. For research I’m currently listening to Scent of the Missing by Susannah Charleson about K9 search and rescue dogs and I’m reading Eight Lives Down by Chris Hunter about Explosive Ordnance Disposal techs. For fun, I’m reading Whiteout by Adriana Anders and I’m listening to A Bad Day for Sunshine by Darynda Jones.

What Hogwarts House would the Sorting Hat place you in?

I’m Hufflepuff. Not going to lie, I was mad about it at first. I wanted to be Ravenclaw. But… the hat was right. I’m such a Hufflepuff.

Instagram, Twitter or Facebook?

Insta all the way! I tolerate Facebook and despise Twitter.

Favorite Superhero?


Favorite TV show?

Changes almost weekly. Right now, I’m loving on Community. (Yes, I know I’ve very late to that party!)

Sweet or Salty?


Any Phobias?

Not really.

Song you can’t get enough of right now?

You Should Be Sad by Halsey

2020 Movie you’re most looking forward to?

I was looking forward to Call of Wild, which I thought was absolutely charming. Also looking forward to the live-action Mulan and I’m curious about Tenet.

Thanks so much Tonya for answering my questions! I can’t wait for everyone to read HONOR AVENGED!

Thanks for having me! <3 o:p="">
