BOOK SYNOPSIS
Rebel Porter is a man on the edge. His wife was killed to silence evidence he uncovered on a dangerously corrupt man of power. Now Reb is in hiding, and he’s as afraid to lose someone else to the bounty on his head as to lose his heart to another woman.

Corrupt head of Network operations, Giles Jameson has gone MIA. As a boy, he’d been brought in with the choice: join or die. Giles joined, vowing secretly to bring down the Network. Working with an organized crime ring, Giles had killed a senator. The son of that senator was Rebel Porter, who grew up to be an investigative reporter who spent his life searching for Giles and the covert organization he believed he headed. When Reb disclosed his findings on public radio, Giles covered up the breach and silenced Reb by arranging to have his wife killed. Now 16 years later, Giles has begun his life-long mission to destroy the Network for good.

Network operative Natalie Francis goes undercover, posing as Reb’s former lover—investigative journalist Adrienna Kelly—to find Reb and his evidence against Giles Jameson and the Network. Together they uncover a conspiracy that could upset the wrong people and silence both of them for good. And, when Natalie realizes she’s fallen for the man she’d been protecting, she considers the impossible—escaping the Network.

BOOK EXCERPTS
The rural farmhouse was exactly where she expected to find it—smack-dab in the middle of nowhere. The yard had all the requisite junk cars and spare parts she’d anticipated, with multiple barking dogs sending up their warnings as soon as she came into sight in her compact car. She sensed eyes gazing on her from the house as she got out, and she looked around without hurry. Tense excitement—that it was about to begin—filled her.

Calming the dogs with a soothing greeting, she let them sniff her before she petted them. Then she proceeded, unhindered, to the cluttered porch. She could see stained and tattered curtains drop back inside as she knocked on a door in desperate need of new paint.

When the door opened, her gaze moved from the height of the adult she’d anticipated
seeing down to a kool-aid-moustached, freckled and cowlicked boy peering up at her through the screen. The scent of fried chicken, buttery biscuits, and fresh corn made her realize suddenly just how hungry she was. But she needed information more than food. Besides, she wasn’t sure she’d be welcome.

The matriarch—matriarch according the files she’d read about the family—appeared suddenly. Jolie Porter was a short, plump, older lady. She wore her graying hair in a messy bun at her nape.

“Can I help—” Jolie started to say, and then recognition flooded into her reddened face. “Adrienna? Adrienna Kelly?”

Adrienna jumped back to avoid the screen door, which flew open inches from her face.

“Well, gosh, we never expected... Come in! I can’t believe it’s you. It’s been so long, and look at you. Just the same as always.”

Engulfed in Jolie’s arms, Adrienna intuited the hug was as much about relief as welcome.

Adrienna, as she wished to be known, walked into the kitchen.

“Jolie, I’m looking for Reb. I’ve searched everywhere, and he’s all but dropped off the face of the earth. Yours is basically the only place I haven’t looked. Have you seen him?”

Jolie waved away her question. “There’s time for that later. You look famished. Come in and sit down. Have dinner with us first. Then we’ll talk.”

The no-nonsense tone of Jolie’s voice made her aware there was no way she was getting out of the place until she’d been sufficiently stuffed with Porter hospitality. Figuring it was the quickest way to get what she wanted, she made no argument.

Reb’s aunt eased her inside the house, into the massive dining room where the family ate dinner.

“Everyone, look who’s here. Rebel’s old friend Adrienna Kelly. Remember the summer she spent with us years ago?”

The faces were familiar from the files she’d read. Jolie’s husband—Reb’s uncle—looked like he’d spent every single day of his life working his fingers to the bone. The oldest daughter—someone who would have known Adrienna—was present with two teenage boys, a teenage girl, and the little boy who’d opened the door. Three farm workers were also at the huge table.

Overwhelmed by their warm, almost giddy welcome, she felt a little dizzy as Jolie bustled out and back into the room, gently urging her into a chair before laying down a place with another plate, utensils and a glass.

During the delicious meal she found herself devouring eagerly, she kept reminding herself why she was here as she handled the flood of questions about what she’d been up to in the past twenty years.

At one point, Jolie mentioned it was a pity Reb didn’t talk about her much anymore. The fact that no one seemed uncomfortable with her presence was curious to her. Clearly, they knew nothing of her bitter parting with Reb.

Adrienna pondered on the issue as they all ate and talked. Are they just friendly, or do they consider me to be a part of the family after my single stay here long ago? Or do they see me as someone who might be able to help Reb?

Something like relief radiated strongly in their enthusiasm toward her.

The family and workers dispersed after apple pie, and Jolie began cleaning up.

BOOK REVIEWS
"Once again the masterful pen of Karen Wiesner has written a powerful novel. The romance between the two main characters is sexy and hot. The idea that The Network could actually exist is an intriguing one. As the tale of Reb is brought to a satisfying end, the reader cannot help but wonder whose story will be told next. I am always anxious to read what the fertile mind of Karen Wiesner has produced. She is a masterful storyteller and needs to be on everyone’s automatic buy list." ~Dawn Myers for Writers Unlimited


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"From the Incognito Series by author Karen Wiesner, Book 3: BOUNTY ON THE REBEL’S HEART is another compelling “to die for” story! Trained operatives of the covert organization, The Network, deal out absolute justice when government organizations and the law fail. Natalie Francis runs against the clock to unearth the evidence. BOUNTY ON THE REBEL’S HEART is a fabulous read—as addictive as the first two book in the series, NO ORDINARY LOVE and UNTIL DEATH DO US PART The Network series would make a great TV Series. A heartstopper filled with action!" ~Pamela Faye for Rolling Seas Reviews


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

5 stars! "The third Incognito Series book (see NO ORDINARY LOVE and UNTIL DEATH DO US PART) is a terrific suspense thriller filled with superb characters and plenty of plausible exciting twists that keep the audience reading to learn what happens next, especially to Reb and Natalie. Though BOUNTY ON THE REBEL'S HEART can stand alone as a fabulous action-packed tale, fans will want to know how Reb and Giles got to the point where both are hiding. Karen Wiesner has another triumph in a winning series." ~reviewed by Harriet Klausner for Sime~Gen Reviews

intriguing. The thrill of wanting to know what lies beyond each page became an
excursion. It was like reading a spy novel. You, the reader, are about to embark on a journey into a marvelous adventure, filled with great action and suspense, that only Karen Wiesner could formulate." ~Wanda Maynard for Sime~Gen

4 angels! "This is another great story by Karen Wiesner. The characters she creates are so bold and full of life that you expect them to jump off the pages and the world they live in is so vividly portrayed that you feel like you are experiencing it right along with the characters. BOUNTY ON THE REBEL'S HEART is a book you won’t want to miss. It’s so full of danger, passion, and suspense that will keep you reading long into the night." ~Fallen Angel Reviews
