GIVEAWAY of "Pursuit" by Caitlyn Nicholas...

Legendary hacker, Dimity Pond, is on the run from the law.  
Her landlord’s sold her home, her money has disappeared along with her two-timing husband, a cyber-terrorist named Nemesis is forcing her to wreak havoc with a nasty virus and she's developing a vile migraine.
Six years ago, Nemesis framed Dimity for the collapse of one of Europe's biggest banks. The money was never found, and the bank's failure caused untold damage to its customers. She's been living under the radar ever since. The only way she can clear her name and live a normal life is to uncover Nemesis's identity, but he's always one step ahead.
Since Lord Richard Summerhayes left the Special Forces he's built the best disaster-recovery network in the world, known as The Bunker. Banks, militaries, airports and other major systems around the world rely on him as the last unshakeable digital fortress in the face of disaster. Richard has been keeping an eye on his neighbor who has a dubious hacking past. He doesn't like hackers, and when someone nukes his network with an intriguing new virus he knows exactly who to blame. But when he confronts her, he gets a whole lot more than he bargained for.
When Nemesis commits an unthinkable act of terrorism, the last hope is an encrypted file that only Dimity can crack. Will Nemesis manipulate Dimity into helping him wipe out the world's biggest financial center? Or can Richard and Dimity take Nemesis down once and for all?

“Oh Sarah Easton ——” A cold digital voice mocked her. “It’s about to begin. Send the virus.”
Cold horror washed over Dimity. She jabbed the phone’s off button and dropped it on the table.
A noise, the rough grate of wood on metal, startled her. Numbers curled across her mind as a migraine inched closer.
“It’s the stove.” She spoke out loud, to break the quiet.
Beau – the labrador – cozy and content at the base of the wood-burning stove, continued to sleep as if he’d spent the morning chasing rabbits.
Which he hadn’t.
Unless bacon was involved, Beau never ran.
The silence of the house closed back around her.
She scooped up the phone, hesitating, waiting, and hoping the suffocating dread would dissipate. It didn’t. Then she hooked the handset back into its base, flicked open the dishwasher and unloaded the dirty cups and glasses she’d stacked there in a rare burst of domesticity that morning.
Someone hammered on the front door. A thick white mug, with the faded words Nerd Girl on it, slipped from her fingers, bounced off the side of the dishwasher door and shattered into a thousand pieces on the floor.
Jake? It couldn’t be him. He had a key and was in the south of France. But no one ever came to visit, she made sure of it.
The person hammered again.
“Shit,” she muttered. “This stupid life.”

Okay, the kind people at Momentum said I'm allowed to get merry with some digital copies of Pursuit! So, (AND REMEMBER TO LEAVE YOUR EMAIL ADDY) tell me which hottie you'd cast as Lord Richard ex-special forces all round capable hero type dude. Go on! I've got several copies up for grabs and am not afraid to give them.


  1. Ooh... I'm really terrible with casting suggestions! How about Jamie Bamber (from Battlestar Galactica?)? Daniel Wu? Ethan Hawke? ;)

  2. I already have my copy, so I don't need one but still want to play!
    I just can't decide on just one actor. Here's my list:
    Gerard Butler, Henry Cavill, Daniel Craig and Nicholas Hoult (though I think I may be a cradle snatcher with this one).

  3. Daniel Craig or Jason Statham. Both are yummy!

  4. I think Richard Armitage would be good Lord Richard :) The man is Gorgeous!

  5. Sounds like a great read! I would choose Channing Tatum or Gerard Butler!
