Leanna Dixon has had enough. She no longer wants to be a punching bag for her husband, Mark. Without a word, she packs her bag and flees from her hell.


Arriving in her new home, things begin to go wrong from the start. Through all the bad she meets James, an Austin Police Officer, who helps her pick up the pieces of her shattered life.




Mark Dixon rules his women with an iron fist. When he arrives home and finds his wife has left him, his anger begins to build to dangerous levels. He knows he needs to find her and teach her a lesson, just as his father had done to his mother.


Will Leanna survive or will she become another statistic?


MediaKit_BookCover_Code3Leanna slowly begins to stir. Her head feels fuzzy and her body aches. What the hell happened, is the first question that swims through her foggy mind. Her eyes begin to flutter open and she takes in her surroundings.

She’s hung up on a ceiling and just ahead of her is a rotted work bench with whips and chains with branding irons lying across it. Her heart races as she tugs on her bindings only to discover that they are firmly attached to her wrists.

“Well, well, well, look who decided to join the land of the living,” Mark’s voice rings from a corner chair—a chair she missed when she assessed her situation. He rises from the chair and walks toward her, a knife in one hand and a piece of wood in the other. The bastard and his fucking whittling, Leanna thinks to herself with disgust and contempt spreading across her face.

“What are you doing, Mark? Why did you kidnap me?” She shakes her hands trying in vain to get free.

“I didn’t kidnap you. I only took what was rightfully mine. When you married me, you became my property. Only I can rid myself of my property. You,” he gets up in her face, eyes dancing with fury, “don’t get to decide when I’ve had enough of you.”

  1. I just want to thank our host, one more time, for taking the time to share Code 3: Finding Safety with everyone. Thank you Harmony for all the hard work.

    I also want to thank everyone for stopping by and leaving a comment. I was traveling today and I’m in California, so the time difference really prevented me from interacting how I would’ve loved to. Thank you everyone and I hope you like what you saw from Code 3: Finding Safety. It’s the first book in the Rescue Me Series with the second book, To Serve and Protect, releasing October 2016.

    • It’s been an absolute pleasure having you over! Very best wishes with all your writing endeavours 🙂

      And a HUGE thanks to everyone for stopping by and supporting V E Avance 🙂

  2. This sounds like it’s going to be an amazing read, I can’t wait to check it out. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    • Thank you for those kind words. My beautiful friend modeled for the cover and I think she’s absolutely gorgeous and the perfect girl for the job. Plus, my graphic designer isn’t half bad herself 🙂

    • I’m currently reading Obsession by Helen Hardt. Let me tell you, this series is full of twists and turns and it’s keeping me from editing the second book in my Rescue Me Series.

  3. Hope you had an awesome weekend. Let’s keep it positive as we start the week by saying it’s gonna be a great one for all.. Thanks for the giveaway!

    • James,

      I had such a busy weekend then drove more than 4 hours back home today. I’m wiped out and ready for next weekend already 🙂

    • Nikolina,

      I appreciate the comment. It’s so hard for me to pick my most favorite excerpts as well as writing the blurb on the back describing the books. I can write an entire story but ask me to summarize without giving so much away, well, I draw a blank 99% of the time. 🙂
