About Sybil Bartel

I grew up in Northern California with my head in a book and my feet in the sand. I dreamt of becoming a painter but the heady scent of libraries with their shelves full of books drew me into the world of storytelling. I love the New Adult genre, but any story about a love so desperately wrong and impossibly beautiful makes me swoon.

I now live in Southern Florida and while I don’t get to read as much as I like, I still bury my toes in the sand. If I’m not writing or fighting to contain the banana plantation in my backyard, you can find me spending time with my handsomely tattooed husband, my brilliantly practical son and a mischievous miniature boxer…

But seriously? Here are ten things you probably really want to know about me:

I grew up a faculty brat. I can swear like a sailor. I love men in uniform. I hate being told what to do. I can do your taxes (but don’t ask). The Bird Market in Hong Kong freaks me out. My favorite word is desperate…or dirty, or both—I can’t decide. I have a thing for muscle cars. But never reply on me for driving directions, ever. And I have a new book boyfriend every week—don’t tell my husband.

Series: Unchecked 2
Genres: New Adult, Romance, Romantic Suspense

After her parents were murdered, Layna Blair spent three years on the run—until Marine Sergeant Blaze Johnson stepped in and saved her. With him, Layna knew safety for the first time…but two weeks after shipping out for another tour in Afghanistan, Blaze comes home early.
When Layna sees the jagged wounds covering his body, every truth she thought she knew is destroyed. Blaze is distant and angry and though her heart is shattered, Layna desperately tries to keep their relationship together in the face of another tragedy. When the tenuous bonds holding them together are ripped apart by a revenge-hungry maniac, Layna must trust her survival instinct and bury her past for good.
But the enemy is two steps ahead, and before she can take action, Layna's hand is forced by his deadly demands—save herself or save the man who risked his life for her freedom. Blaze saved her once. This time it's her turn to protect him.

So this baby released yesterday, and I'm all giddy to have an ARC for the upcoming tour (stops by here on Sept 18!). Blaze and Layna are one hot mess! But I'm also looking forward to see Talon and the other badass soldiers again. ^^

EXCERPT / Teaser Tuesday
Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB @ A Daily Rhythm.

“I have to catch an early flight.”

“I don’t want you to leave.” I held it together, barely.

“I know.”

Swirling questions, breaking heart, I wasn’t ready for this. “Five more minutes.” We’d discussed nothing.

“I can’t miss my flight.” Blaze stood.

I swallowed back the crushing reality and sat up. “Okay, I’ll be dressed in a second.”

His hand hit my shoulder. “Stay. Talon’s taking me. Go back to sleep.”

It felt like a slap in the face. “You don’t want me to go to the airport?” The seed of doubt grew into a mountain.

“Stay,” was all he said.

“What’s going on?”

His hands went to his hips and he glanced down before bringing his gaze back to mine. “Trying something new.”

I didn’t want new. “Why?” I wanted the Blaze who’d swept me off my feet in a dingy apartment building hallway after giving me his real smile for the first time.

Ignoring my question, he leaned over and left a chaste kiss on my cheek. “Thank you for last night.” He stared for half a second with an unreadable expression then he turned and walked out.

I sat there, stunned.

Talon’s car fired up.

Thank you?

My eyes drifted to the dresser. A small black box sat in the corner. Untangling myself from the sheets, I picked it up and opened it.

I began to shake.

Even in the predawn light, it sparkled like an engagement ring should.

I was running to the front door before I could throw clothes on but I was too late.

Talon’s taillights hit A1A and Blaze was gone.

  1. I've heard about this series before and, I must say, I'm intrigued . . . You know I love NA novels and that romantic suspense is a genre I truly like, so I'll definitely have to give this one a go!
    Thanks for sharing Caro, and hope you enjoy this second instalment and that it works better than the first one 🙂
