Release day: Zapata

21 August 2019

Today is the official release of Zapata by Harper McDavid (ebook and paperback, Soul Mate Publishing). Here’s the blurb:

When engineer Avery McAndrews is offered the Zapata project, she readily accepts. Despite the fact the Texas border town has a dubious reputation, she’s used to pushing past all kinds of stereotypes. The assignment is a career maker.

Avery’s work is disrupted when a battle for control of the oil production facility puts her in the crossfire between warring drug cartels. All hope for a promotion is forgotten. Kidnapped and imprisoned in a Mexican brothel, Avery discovers that her captor, Javier Ramos, son of a cartel boss, is more than just a power-hungry drug lord. He’s crazy.

As lead attorney for the Ramos Cartel, Alejandro DeLeon’s unofficial responsibilities include managing Javier. Cartel operations are threatened by Javier’s kidnapping of Avery, presenting a nearly impossible situation for Alejandro. But it is Javier’s cruelty toward Avery that leads Alejandro to risk everything to save her.

With Mexico’s underworld at their heels, Avery and Alejandro run. Danger escalates in every new town as Javier offers a reward for her capture. Though for Avery, the greatest struggle is not the perilous escape, but trusting Alejandro, a man of many secrets…

Harper dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

Zapata is my debut novel. It is a romantic suspense inspired by an assignment I had as a geologist working in south Texas. Though I was not kidnapped, the cartels were very much a real thing. Stolen crude oil and the disappearance of a site supervisor were actual events. Unfortunately, the character of Alejandro DeLeon is entirely fictional. Zapata is the first book in the Border series. I hope Australian readers enjoy it!
