What A Man! Meet Awaited’s hero, Russell

Please join me in reading about Lynn Rush’s hero in her novel, Awaited. I’m intrigued and have to read about Russell! Oh, and Annabelle.

Hey, everyone, Annabelle here. Lynn Rush writes about my man, Russell Leonard, in Awaited.

Sure, I drew his beautiful face before I’d ever met him…a long time before…but when I met him for the first time after my plane crashed, I was a goner.

Please laugh at insta-love, heck, even I did, until I met him. Oh, what a man he is.

I’ve always wanted a man who was strong and dedicated. And Russell’s a Guardian over four hundred years old. I’d say that’s strong. To survive all those years against the evil crawling around the earth.

**shakes fists at the demons**

I’ve been up close and personal with plenty of demons, so I know for a fact it’s not easy to keep your head (literally) around them. Strong, indeed!

In the dictionary, the word dedication should have Russell’s picture next to it. Now, I can’t talk (you’ll have to read the story to learn how I lost my voice) and most people get pretty frustrated by that. Sure, I know sign language, but very few people do, so, it’s tough to talk with me. And after my plane crashed, I was freaked. But Russell was so calm and collected. He stuck with me, trying to figure out what I needed or wanted.

Never gave up on me!

Sometimes, I wondered how he knew what I was trying to say considering he didn’t know sign language. It was almost like he could read my mind.

Not to mention his dedication to the Guardians. Especially his king and queen. He fought by Beka’s side for over four centuries, helping her find her mate (he’s such a romantic—don’t tell him I said that.)

Russell often laughs at our four hundred year age difference. Sure, I’m only nineteen, so some might wonder what I can offer him? But I like to look at it as me keeping him young. Blending in more, accepting the modern comforts of this world, which the old fart tends to resist. **LOL**

So tell me, are a couple of traits you love in your men?


Driven to write, Lynn Rush often sees her characters by closing her eyes watching their story unfold in her mind. Lynn Rush is a pen name that is a combination of two sources – Lynn, the first name of her mother-in-law, who passed away and Rush – since the author is a former inline speed skater and mountain biker. All of Rush’s books are dedicated to Lynn, her namesake, and a portion of the proceeds benefits cancer research and awareness.

Rush holds a degree in psychology from Southwest Minnesota State University and a master’s degree from the University of Iowa. Originally from Minneapolis, Rush currently enjoys living in the Arizona sunshine by road biking nearly 100 miles per week with her husband of 16 years and jogging with her two loveable Shetland Sheep dogs.

Book Blurb for Wasteland:

Salvation comes with a price…

Bound by the blood contract his human mother signed four centuries ago, half-demon, David Sadler, must obey his demonic Master’s order to capture fifteen-year-old Jessica Hanks. But as he learns more about her, he realizes she may be the key to freedom from his demonic enslavement.

The only obstacle—Jessica’s distractingly beautiful Guardian, Rebeka Abbott. He must not give in to their steamy chemistry, or he will lose his humanity. But fresh off a quarter millennia of sensory deprivation as punishment for not retrieving his last target, he may not be able to resist temptation long enough to save what’s left of his human soul.

Book Blurb for Awaited:

The voice is a powerful thing. . .

Russell Leonard is a centuries-old Guardian who’s lost faith in his purpose. So when he’s charged with procuring the first female Guardian in over two centuries, he can only hope it’s the red-headed beauty who’s been haunting his dreams for months. And if it is, he intends to claim her as his. But when he finds his dream woman, Annabelle is mute and bears no Guardian’s Mark.

He soon realizes she’s been tainted by an ancient evil. Russell must somehow release the secrets trapped within this delicate soul to help her tap into the only weapon powerful enough to silence a millennia-old demon—her voice.

“From the first action-packed scene, AWAITED grabs you and doesn’t let go until its awesome conclusion.” ~~Caridad Piñeiro, NY Times Best-Selling Author
