Author weaves a tale about the world of dog fighting and its tragic aftermath. 40% of the proceeds from Falling In Danger will go to The Pixie Project, an animal rescue organization committed to finding shelter animals forever homes.
Portland, OR (PRWEB) February 23, 2012
A large portion of the proceeds from Falling In Danger, a newly released contemporary romantic suspense, will go to The Pixie Project animal rescue. Pixie’s motto is “Nothing is impossible”. With over 1000 successful adoptions and counting, they are committed to changing the lives of shelter animals with their unique approach of matching the right pets to prospective new families.
“I got the idea for this book after seeing a piece on the news about the adoptability of ex-fighting dogs,” says author, Kaylie Newell. “Something about the dogs touched me deeply. How, even after all they’d been through, they were able to forgive and love us anyway. I think that’s something we can all learn from.”
After submitting the book, Newell contacted her publisher, Beachwalk Press, who enthusiastically agreed to the donation. “What better way to celebrate a story about second chances,” says Newell, “than to give to such a wonderful cause. I’m very lucky to be working with such a forward thinking publisher. We all hope that the lives of some very special animals will be touched by this gift.”
Amy Sacks, Executive Director of The Pixie Project says, “We are thrilled to be the beneficiary of this very generous donation to our cause. We love creative donations and this is certainly a first for us! The idea that a publisher would donate such a generous percentage of the profits from a novel is just amazing to all of us at the Pixie Project. Our animals come to us at a difficult point in their lives, homeless and waiting to find comfort and love with a new forever home. Many of these animals need veterinary care, cozy beds and toys to keep their spirits up, and of course a proper shelter to rest in and wait for their new family. This kindness will help us care for and house these animals giving them a second chance at love and happiness.”
Falling In Danger will be available February 20th from Barnes and Noble.com, Amazon.com and Beachwalk Press.com.
About Falling In Danger:
A journalist stumbles onto the story of a lifetime. And finds herself falling in danger…
When young, naïve reporter Jessica Brady is kidnapped and held for ransom by the head of an illegal dog fighting organization, undercover police officer Ian Cole realizes he’s got his hands full. He’s on the verge of busting the ring when he’s assigned to babysit her, which isn’t an easy feat. She’s neurotic, feisty, and also happens to be scared to death of dogs. Now he has to figure out a way to get them both out alive.
Jessica has no idea the thug she’s becoming attracted to is actually a cop, but it’s clear he’s not like the rest of the men in the organization. Particularly Albert Mancini, the disturbed only son of the ring boss, who has an appetite for alcohol and women. Especially Jessica.
When Ian’s cover is blown, he’s forced to bust the ring early. Weeks later, Jessica can’t stop thinking about the experience that has changed her forever. She wonders about the tall, sexy detective who saved her life. And the mobster’s prize-winning pit bull, Bruta.
An idea for a story is born. What if these dogs were given a second chance at life?
As Jessica digs deeper into their troubled world, she ends up falling for the police officer who rescued them. And discovers layers of her heart she never knew existed.
But when Albert escapes from jail, her happiness turns to terror. He hasn’t forgotten about the detective who put him behind bars. Or the beautiful young woman whose every move has become his obsession.
