Forsaken by James David Jordan ISBN: 9780805447491
When Simon Mason, the world's best-known televangelist, receives threats from Muslim terrorists, he hires Taylor Pasbury, a beautiful former Secret Service agent, to take charge of his security. Taylor is thrilled to receive the high-profile assignment, but she has no idea that Simon already knows more about her than she could imagine.When the terrorists strike, making a demand of the pastor that would shake the most steadfast saint, Taylor draws on all of her hard-knock toughness and training as she fights to save Simon and his daughter. Along the way, she discovers that she is not the only one who has done things she would like to forget--and she is not the only one who understands that some things are more important than living.

I haven't been reading any of the posts lately but for some reason, I decided today was the day to start back. This book just reached out and grabbed me. How apropos, given the last line of the excerpt. I am looking forward to the rest of the posts. I just might have to go out and get this book once it is published.
This is the first time I have ever been part of a book club at all and it seems like I joined the right one and the right time! So far, the excerpt isn't long enough! I want more. I am really enjoying this and as soon as the book is available... I might just have to get it!
I too have just joined this online book club, but I do belong to 2 others around the area I live.
So far the first chapter of the book has grabbed me. It isn't often that an author can grab me into the story within the first couple of pages. So I'm impressed so far with the author's writing and I look forward to continuing to read more.
