Praise for the Red Zone series: "Imaginative, totally preposterous and I absolutely loved every word!" - Marta, Goodreads

In a future where corporations and nanotech implants run the world, Mace Armstrong is in the wrong place at the wrong time... Literally.

The mission is simple: find a way into CommTECH’s state-of-the-art compound, bug the lead scientist of their bio-engineering team before they release an implant that will kill millions, get out without anyone knowing he’s there. For an ex-army ranger, even one out of his element by a century, it should be a walk in the park. Right?


Because Mace isn’t the only one who breaks into the secure facility. With the building overrun with terrorists, he has to find a way out before he compromises himself and the entire Red Zone team to the enemy.

But there’s no leaving without the woman who inadvertently helped him get into the building in the first place: Keiko Sato, CommTECH’s press secretary. She’s brilliant, beautiful, and knows how to hold a grudge. Against him. She has no idea what secrets he and his team are harboring, or that she’s calling to the animal that’s been locked inside of him for a century.

Even as she argues with him about everything, Mace is determined to protect her. He got her into this mess, and he owes it to her to get her out of it.

Whether she wants him to or not.


“This book has a little bit of everything and all of it amazing! This is such a fun, action filled read with plenty of humor that was sharp and on point.  While the chemistry between Keiko and Mace absolutely sizzles, it doesn’t consume the story.  With a fast start, things only crank up even more in intensity as things move forward for this couple.” -Carla V., Goodrerads

Plenty of action and a shed load of comedy mixed in with some hot sexy stuff. What's not to like?? Janet has once again excelled herself. KEEP THEM COMING!” -Lynda W., NetGalley

“Absolutely LOVED it!!! Such an exciting read- once again Janet delivered an amazing book that kept me hooked.” -Rachel W., NetGalley

“I absolutely LOVED this second book in the Red Zone series. There is tons of action and adventure!” -Kelly P., Goodreads

“This book continues with all the action, humor, and steamy scenes that you expect. It is a fast-paced read that has you smiling while on the edge of your seat.” -Monica P., Goodreads

This book will make your blood boil, your heart race and drag you to the edge of your seat.” -Nina S., Goodreads

“If you love action-packed, funny as hell romantic suspense, this book is for you!” -Bev B., Goodreads

“Janet Elizabeth Henderson is the BOMB! Vivid action scenes! Unconventional characters! Sultry, witty dialogue! Sizzling sex scenes!  Laugh-out-loud moments! A perfect read leaving you wanting more!!!” -Sandra B., NetGalley

This series is going from strength to strength and if you can suspend disbelief and just go with it then this is an outstanding and imaginative read. The idea that several soldiers were mutated one hundred years ago does I admit sound preposterous but in the hands of this creative author it absolute ...more

This book has a little bit of everything and all of it amazing!


When Keiko is out on the town for her birthday celebration, all she wants is a steamy night with a Viking who doesn’t talk much. She certainly finds him, and she’s all in for a good time. Unfortunately, her Viking has a hidden agenda and ...more

I absolutely loved this book. Fantasy style books are not usually my first choice, though I have read and enjoyed a few. I read this book specifically because I have enjoyed every other book by Janet Elizabeth Henderson I have read, and there have been quite a few. I couldn't put Red Zone (book 1) d ...more

By Kylie October 11, 2019

Action-packed from Page 1! This book hooked me quick and kept me engaged throughout the entire thing. The romance is introduced almost immediately, but the action/adventure portion of it comes into play almost as quickly and makes it that fun-to-read page turner we all love!

By Saragh October 17, 2019

This book will knock you straight on your behind! It’s a non-conformist book because I can’t place it in any genre, therefore I am just enjoying the ride.

So, do you like Romance? Red Awakening is the book. Do you like Action? This is the book. Do you like Sci-Fi? This is the book. Do you like Shift ...more

By Monica October 21, 2019

Red Awakening is the second book in the Red Zone series. The characters from the first book make appearances but the book focuses on Mace and his melded animal. He is on a mission to save millions of lives but of course, nothing goes according to plan.

This book continues with all the action, humor, ...more

By Nina October 15, 2019

This book will make your blood boil, your heart race and drag you to the edge of your seat. There were moments when I wanted to slap some sense into Keiko and high five her at the same time. The book goes from 0 to 100 within pages and does not slow down to give you a break. I absolutely loved the c ...more

This book is a serious thrill ride. It had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I am always amazed at how much emotion this author manages to pack into her novels, and this one is an excellent example of that. None of the characters are flat; they are all complicated and real. And I was so glad ...more

I am reviewing this book after receiving an ARC.
Oh, my goodness. I absolutely LOVE this 2nd book in the series. After all the scene setting in the first book, this one hit the ground running. I love Mace and his "little friend". Plenty of action and a shed load of comedy mixed in with some hot sex ...more

By Eva October 25, 2019

The mission seemed simple enough even for an ex-army ranger out of his element by a century and should have been a walk in the park.

By Julie (Jewlsbookblog) November 11, 2019

Mace was a big guy with a gentle heart, but his sarcastic mouth landed him in hot water so many times, I lost count. So finding himself paired with Keiko was irony at its finest, because she wasn’t at all what he was expecting! He had as much control with Keiko as he did his other half...nil.

By Rinou October 30, 2019

L’univers futuriste de ce roman est vraiment intéressant et ne semble pas si hors du possible que ça. J’ai beaucoup aimé les interactions entre l’héroïne, pleine (voire trop pleine) d’énergie, et le héros si calme, et l’intrigue et le suspense sont bourrés d’action.

By Celestine March 22, 2020

I loved this sequel. It was different enough from the first - in terms of character development, H/h interaction and setting - that I was thrilled. Great storytelling, great action sequences. Hot and spicy and fun connection between the main characters. The overall plot continues to evolve and threa ...more

By Nickisha October 21, 2019

Fast-paced and action-filled. While Red Awakening can be read as a standalone honestly you are going to be drawn to the other characters and you're going to want to know their story.
Yes, it is a HEA model but for those who are fans of strong females no she doesn't just roll over and accept her fate. ...more

Mind-Blowing, Heart-pounding action with toe-curling romance!
This is the 2nd book in the Red Zone series and it blew me away! This book is sooo good that you totally ignore your daily work and chores. You just don’t care, you just HAVE to read another page.
