Chasing Victory Blog Tour and Giveaway!!!

Victory Winters is a world-renowned geneticist and possesses an unusual innate sense of communication, bordering on telepathic when relating to animals. She is kidnapped by Lawrence Braxton. Braxton is the madman CEO who runs Biotec, and forces Victory to pursue her research on canine DNA.

Naval officer Tristan Farraday is sent undercover to track Biotec’s experiments. These experiments involve the implantation of canine DNA into humans, thereby manipulating their genetic makeup. The goal of Biotec is to create the perfect soldier.

Murder, kidnapping, and blackmail follow as Tristan realizes Victory has been pulled into Biotec’s world against her wishes. She refuses to divulge the genetic answers Braxton demands. Victory knows Biotec wants to exploit her findings, by administering them in a destructive manner. Will Tristan rescue Victory from this madman’s grip and save her family? Can he keep her discoveries away from enemy hands?  

WOW!! This is the kind of debut novel that every author dreams about writing!

Chasing Victory is perfect and masterful blending of science fiction, romance, and the paranormal into one tight perfectly delivered book. Page after page, I found myself becoming more and more engrossed with the story and its characters. You can even ask my husband when I tell you that he missed a meal because of this book.  I think one of the biggest reasons why this book resonated with me so much is that it pulls on my career heart strings as I am a cancer research scientist. It’s not often that you see a bit of science thrown into a book such as this.

Joanne’s characters are very well thought out and developed. Her hero is the perfect balance of intelligence, brass, and sex appeal. Tristan will melt your panties off with a smile while boggling you with his wit and intelligence. Yet, I am pulled more towards Victory. She’s special to me both in the sheer fact she’s a sassy female scientist (YOU GO GIRL) and her additional abilities. 

I have often wondered what my cats or puppies are thinking at times and she gets to do that!! Outside of Dr. Doolittle and the wild world of werewolves and shifters, do you ever see a human woman with these kinds of abilities!! Braxton is the perfect anti-hero. He’s willingly to do whatever it takes for his company and his ideals to succeed including kidnapping a woman and forcing her to work on her pet project.  Just the sheer evilness of man who threatens peoples live in the name of science just screams evil genius to me!

Joanne Jaytanie has delivered the perfect paranormal romance & suspense novel. Like me, I bet you’ll find it difficult to put it down. So before you pick this one up, and I know you will, you might want to just clear your calendar for a few hours.  I look forward to reading by Joanne!

“Tristan.” He turned to find her right behind him. “Take this bottle with you. You can take two more pills in an hour if you aren’t any better.” Damn, he must look as bad has he felt.

“Thanks.” He opened the bedroom door and turned back, smiled at her and before she knew what was happening, leaned towards her and kissed her ever so lightly on her lips. “I’ll see you first thing in the morning. I’ll come back here and go with you to breakfast.” He headed straight for the hall door, leaving Victory frozen at the threshold of her bedroom. “Make sure you lock the door as soon as I leave,” he casually tossed over his shoulder.

“I will,” she stammered.

 Had sparks flashed from their lips?

 Knowing full well that a lock wouldn’t stop Braxton or his people if they wanted to enter her room, Tristan walked out into the hall and waited for the click of the lock. He was bewildered by the electricity that sparked between them at the second his lips touched hers and wondered if she had felt the same sensation. He really needed a little down time if he was going to be any help to Victory.

Joanne was born and raised in Sherburne, New York, a quaint village surrounded by dairy farms and rolling hills. From the moment she could read she wanted to explore the world.

She lives with her husband and Dobermans, in their home located on the Kitsap Peninsula with a panoramic view of the Olympic Mountains.

Joanne writes paranormal, romantic suspense, and contemporary romance. She loves writing about the twists and turns of her character’s lives along with the trouble they find themselves involved in. She enjoys a wide variety of books including paranormal, suspense, thriller, and of course romance.
