Only two things could make former Navy SEAL Leo Anderson return to the world of weapons and warfare. First, a capsule of chemical weapons lost on the ocean floor, and second, a plea for assistance from the one woman he can’t seem to forget-CIA Agent Olivia Mortier.

Release Blitz! SHADES OF TREASON by Sandy Williams

Shades of Treason


(An Anomaly Novel, #1)

By Sandy Williams




Ash would have given her life to save her teammates.
Instead, they gave their lives to save hers.
Lieutenant Ramie Ashdyn is an anomaly, a person whose genetic makeup makes her stronger and smarter than the average human. She’s pledged her life to protect the Coalition, an alliance of thirteen planetary systems, but when a top secret operation turns bloody, she’s charged with treason and the brutal executions of her teammates.
The Coalition needs the information Ash’s team stole on their last mission, so they send in Commander Rhys “Rest in Peace” Rykus to get it. He’s the man who’s responsible for turning Ash into an elite soldier… and he’s a man who isn’t, never was, and never will be in love with the woman he trained. Or so he tells himself.
Ash wants nothing more than to clear her name and be the woman her former instructor wants her to be, but the enemy who killed her teammates did more than frame her for treason and murder: they telepathically silenced her mind, preventing her from saying anything that might point to the truth about what happened.
Now Ash is trapped and set to be executed, the truth dying with her. Unless she can prove her innocence. But taking that path could destroy the Coalition she’s sworn to preserve and protect…

pulled against it, the tighter it would become.
He yanked
her into a sitting position. The forest spun. She stared at Rykus’s chest until
the world settled.
“Answer my
question, Ashdyn.”
She laughed. “Don’t get all formal on me, Rip.”
Her gaze
rose from his chest to his eyes, and she cut off her laugh. His expression was
as dark and cold as space, but there was a hint of heat in his gaze, of
galaxies that couldn’t be seen with the naked eye. Rykus had a gravitational
pull as strong as any sun, and she couldn’t resist being pulled in by his flames.

pissed off at herself, at Rykus, at the whole Coalition. She’d bled for them
all. She’d given up her free will to become a Caruth-trained anomaly, all so
she could protect it. And they believed she was working against it now. Working
with the Sariceans.

“Tell me
how many people I killed,” she demanded. “Tell me!”
He opened
his mouth to fling a number in her face, but caught himself. The skin around
his eyes tightened then relaxed. In a voice much quieter than she’d just used,
he said, “Brookins. My XO. You shot him on your way off the Obsidian.”
It took
her a moment to figure out who he was talking about. She’d shot a total of four
people during her escape. Only one of them was likely a fatal wound—the anomaly

After she graduated, she decided to turn those snippets into novels.
Sandy writes books with high-octane action adventure infused with a strong romantic element. She is best known for The Shadow Reader novels, an urban fantasy romance series about a human who can both see and track the fae.
