Lea: *Lea snuggles back* Kat? You give the very best snuggles.


Me: Darlin’ have a cupcake! I’m all about the cupcakes… and the Doctor Pepper… and recently Doctor Who. (but that’s another story) What cupcake flavor are you in the mood for and what are you doing to celebrate your book birthday for Retribution? Besides visit me, I highly approve of visiting The Book Tart by the way *nods*

Lea: *snicker* I think there’s no place I’d rather celebrate than with one of my very favorite people—YOU! So for Retribution’s birthday I’m visiting you and the couch o’ awesome. Now let’s see…cupcake flavor? I’d like a Double chocolate, chocolate and chocolate chip-filled, cupcake with chocolate, buttercreme frosting. Oh—and if you could add some chocolate sprinkles and an Andes Crème de menthe on top, I will kiss you on the lips.


Me: *giggles and puts on chocolate flavored chapstick* Soooo… Tell me about Retribution and your GenTech series. Pretty please with a cherry on top. You know I love Sasha and Dray and I’ve begged you before… Ummmm but in front of an the blogoverse I’m begging again. Write More Damnit! 😀


Lea: Hehehe. I will cave to your demands wench!! (I’m so easy, teehee!)

Retribution is actually the very first book I wrote in the series but it wasn’t the first released. Retrieval was the first and it Retrieval (The GenTech Chro...released in January of this year. I’ve been so blessed it’s been received well. The entire series revolves around five sisters, genetically engineered by their megalomaniac father in his attempts to take over the world. His greatest creations to date are his children: Skylar, Piper, Raina and Kenzie. But there’s another one—a child separated before birth from her sisters. Yes, I said before birth. She is Sasha and she’s the hero of Retribution.

The thing that separates Sasha from her sisters? You know besides the fact that she was stolen from the womb and raised as another woman’s child? The thing that separates her is that she has no, we’ll call them superpowers for lack of a better term. She was the only child not genetically enhanced—she is entirely normal. Maybe. 😀 Because I’m not telling all my secrets.


Me: *bops Lea with pillow* You are a tease!photo 2


Lea: In Retribution, you’ll learn about Sasha, the lost one. She is an incredible woman with a soul that has survived unimaginable torture. You’ll meet, Dray Bonner, the man who saves more than just her life and hopes to capture her heart. In Retribution you’ll take a journey with Sasha and Dray as they discover the lengths love will go to bring two people together. And you’ll find out how far evil can spread its tentacles to stop that love from blooming to begin with.

I love this story. I love Sasha and Dray. And I love this entire series. Retribution is the second book, but by no means the last. Hang in there with me and soon, you’ll get to meet Dray’s twin, Dare, and Talia. And you’ll find that Dray isn’t the only Bonner with bone-melting hotness. {For those of you who’ve read Retrieval, Talia has a very special connection to Bleak Moore—and that’s all I’ll say about that :D}

Me: *squee!* Oh! Oh! I want more Dray and Sasha. Dare, Talia and I need to know about Bleak. Gahhhh 🙂

*sigh* ok ok… Honestly. I KNOW you write lots. Cause you are having another book birthday in a few weeks! *passes cupcakes* Have another. It’s romantic suspense right? And a start to a new series? *wide eyes* details woman! Please. 😉


Lea: *takes another cupcake and moans ecstatically* Can I tell you how much I love you? Seriously, there aren’t many things more enjoyable to me than writing, unless it’s visiting with you. *hugs Kat closer*


Me: *blush* Awww back at’cha sweetie


Lea: I do have a brand new series about to start up and I’m crazy excited. It’s a romantic suspense series about assassins. I’ll tease you here:


No Mercy Series

No mercy received. None given.

Bullet, Arrow, Bone & Blade

Turn your back, but you may live to regret it. 

Four women, weapons of a war they didn’t begin. A bond forged in hell, each would die to protect the others. Until they’re separated and must fight the forces that seek to destroy them. To find their way, they will give any piece of themselves to the battle.

Raised on a mother’s milk of hate and revenge, it would take a love stronger than time to bring them back from the edge. 

And the first release is:



Bullet To The Heart

Series: No Mercy
Lea Griffith (Author)

 →Cover Here:  Bullet to the Heart

Unedited Blurb:

She was born to love then taught to kill. She has become everything but is no one.

Known only as Bullet she was long ago forced to shed the name her parents gave her. Changed, molded and trained to kill with sharp-shooting efficiency she is one of The Collective’s most valuable assets. In a cadre of killers, Bullet is death waiting but her time for vengeance has come.

Everything was taken from Rand the day a bullet ended the lives of his beloved wife and daughter. He has searched for their killer seven long years and may have her in his hands. Rand has suffered but now the time has come to make The Collective pay or die trying.

Joy and sorrow are two sides of the same coin. Revenge draws them together but before all is said and done they will learn love can either break you or make you stronger.

She is a woman lost but now found.

Sasha has spent her life dedicated to the freedoms of others. Used to helping, she isn’t prepared to be the one in need. As she holds the hand of suffering, alone in a courtyard of death, she discovers salvation is but a breath away.

He is a man conveniently at the right place, at the right time.

A battle-hardened spec ops soldier, Dray has been sent on a mission he doesn’t understand. Sitting in the hills above a terrorist’s compound he discovers a woman who is knocking on death’s door and everything clicks. Rescuing her is never a question. Keeping her safe becomes his number one priority.

Evil has taken form, and hell hath no fury like this madman’s twisted mind.

Dempsey isn’t above using whatever or whoever he can to enact payback for a perceived slight. And he revels in his ability to instill fear and pain on those he deems beneath him. His goal is vengeance and yet he has no idea what he’s set in motion or the lengths Dray and Sasha will go to protect themselves and eliminate him in the process.

They are on a collision course that will change their lives in ways none could anticipate. How much can love take when evil stalks it?

    1. I’m going to sound so bad for saying this–but that’s a pretty decent fall-back-ye old flattening o’ the tires!

      Thanks for sharing ;D

    1. I hesitated asking this question but figured, hey, I’ve been there. And I, too, have gotten my revenge–but I’m not sharing either, lol! Not something I’m exactly proud of, but um, I’d probably do it again *snork*

      Thanks for sharing Meghan ;D

    1. Maureen – I probably need to be more like you, lol! But they say if you think it, you might as well go ahead and just DO IT!

      Just kidding! I’m only kidding 🙂 *promise*!

      Thanks for stopping in, Maureen!
