Deadly Safari Giveaway!


I’m so excited to share that my next romantic suspense with LIS has just been released! This was a particularly fun book to write because it’s set in South Africa where my family lived for several years before moving to Mozambique where we live now. On top of that, the setting is a game reserve, a place I love visiting and photographing.






Here is the blurb from the back cover:     BODYGUARD UNDER COVER 

Texas Ranger Alex Markham lands an unusual assignment—protecting an ambassador's daughter on the African savanna. No one—not even wildlife filmmaker Meghan Jordan herself—can know his true identity. The stubborn but beautiful Meghan is nothing like the bookish woman he expected…and neither is his unguarded reaction to her. For the cowboy-turned-cop, the routine babysitting assignment turns into a lifesaving mission when poachers target the unsuspecting beauty. 


But when Meghan learns the truth of Alex's identity, can she forgive him before their chances for a future are destroyed forever?


Yes, there are rhino poachers in the book,
a very serious problem facing the rhino!

I’m giving away two copies, paperback for US or ebook if you live outside the US. Leave your email address in a comment for a chance to win and tell me what your favorite safari animal is! I’ll leave the comments open until Saturday, March 15th at 11:59pm, PST.

Happy reading!

  1. How exciting for you, Lisa. I love any stories or movies set in Africa. It seems such a wild, beautiful and yes, dangerous place.
    My favourite animal must be the elephant. They are such gorgeous behemoths. I love the way they gather in family groups and look after their little babies.Yes please, enter me in the draw for an ebook.

  3. They will love it! My kids didn't believe we were really in Africa, when we first moved here, until we took them on a safari in Zimbabwe!

  4. Lisa, congrats on your new book release! The setting in South Africa sounds fascinating. It's hard to pick a favourite animal, a toss up between lions and giraffes :)

    1. Thanks, Narelle. And I agree. Picking a favorite animal is hard!

  5. Hi, Lisa. Sounds like a thrilling premise for an LIS novel. I love cats--lions, cheetahs, tigers and panthers. They're powerful, graceful and elegant, but you never forget how dangerous they can be. Thanks for offering the giveaway.

    1. The first time I saw a lion up close, Sybil, I was shocked at how huge they are. So yes, elegant, but not to take for granted!

  6. I love the setting for this new novel, Lisa. How to choose a favourite animal? difficult. But I think the wart hog - and the way they strut off with their tails in the air, with the little ones in a line behind them. They are quite intriguing! Would love to be in the draw for a copy of the book. anngood@iafrica.com

  7. Lisa, I read the beginning of this on the Harlequin site and it went straight on my TBR list! Favourite animal is a tough choice. I'll go for the meerkat. Those funny little faces do it for me!

    1. They are cute, aren't they. We have seen them in Kruger, but usually they are too fast to snap a photo.

  8. Sounds like a great read. I have it on my TBR pile. Thanks for the giveaway. I think Lions as they are so magnificent, than the elephant as they are so huge and are rumored to never forget.

  9. Lisa, this book sounds absolutely thrilling. I'd love a copy! One way or another I WILL get this book!
    I too love elephants. They are such sociable and intelligent animals, provided you don't annoy them! shirl dot corder at gmail dot com.

  10. I think elephants are favorites by far! And yes, I've seen some scary footage of unhappy elephants. :-)

  11. im late. South Africa is in the news at present but not for the good reasons. We are getting the trial of the Blade runner. On a plus we are getting cricket also.

    the setting sounds so good for a mystery and while being a beautiful country it has a high crime rate so is very realistic. Animal saffari animal is hard considering I love both cougars and tigers and know tigers are not in Africa not sure about the Cougar. I would have to say Cheetahs or leopards. email is ausjenny at gmail dot com

  12. It's sad about the reasons SA is in the news. Our family lived there for four years and I'm so grateful for the connection and friends we made--and for our safety! Definitely lots of great people there! Now, I'd love to go on safari and see tigers up close. I guess that would be India? You're in the drawing!

    1. I think you are right about India or Indonesia or the tigers.
      It is sad, I now turn of when some of the news comes on. We have just finished a murder trial of a child killer and with the SA one its just so much.
      On the other hand South Africa have some really cute Cricketers!!!!!! One won my heart the first time I meet him. Not by his looks but by his caring nature and he is special. There is also some beautiful scenery there. My friend married a South African and lived there for many years. Oh and I just love the accent.

    2. There definitely is some beautiful places in SA. I still need to visit a few more places. Of course, Australia and NZ are on my list to visit as well. One day. . .

    3. Jenny, I chuckled over your comment about our S.African accent. My Scottish Dad always said it wasn't an accent, it was a disease! He was trying to keep me on the straight and narrow with my accent but needless to say he lost that battle!

  13. I've had the privilege of going on safari in Kenya and we saw all of the Big Five except leopard. So I guess that that is the one I'd nominate as favourite. Although actually the Cape Buffalo is said to be the most dangerous and we DID see those, when we were on foot what is more. Scary! Love to read your book Lisa, especially as my family are back in England now, which is lovely but means no more African holidays. candlecomm@ntlworld,com

    1. I love leopards, and have seen quite a few, though am still trying to get the 'perfect' photo of one. :-) Thanks for stopping by!

  14. Lisa, sounds like a fascinating read. A couple of years back when I did a conference in Zambia (my birth country) my hubby and I did a 3 hour elephant ride - was probably one of the most memorable things I've done. Amazing creatures. And then afterwards I got to sit on the elephants leg as he sat and fed him. They have the most gorgeous soft eyes. We rode the biggest elephant, called Danny. They were all orphaned African elephants that had been raised by this sanctuary. Please enter me: marion(dot)ueckermann(at)gmail(dot)com
