                So what’s it feel like when it happens–it’s like hitting the lottery!

And guess what!? It’s happening to me today, Thursday, September 12th, 2013. THE LIBRA AFFAIR, my debut suspense novel, was selected by Amazon for the KDD!

It’s like book heaven for everyone!!

Join me as THE LIBRA AFFAIR takes AMAZON by storm!!AMAZON’S KINDLE DAILY DEAL, Thursday, September 12th, 2013

Debut author Daco Auffenorde, penning as “Daco,” is pleased to announce that her romantic suspense THE LIBRA AFFAIR, published by Crimson Romance, a Division of F+W Media, Inc. earlier this year, will be the featured book on Amazon’s KINDLE DAILY DEAL on Thursday, September 12th, 2013.

Daco is a practicing attorney at Auffenorde & Auffenorde, P.C. Her education includes a B.A. and M.A.S. from the University of Alabama in Huntsville and J.D. from Samford University’s Cumberland School of Law. She is a member of International Thriller Writers, Romance Writers of America, Author’s Guild, and the Alabama State Bar.


Fascinated with thrillers and spy movies, Daco’s idea for THE LIBRA AFFAIR spawned one Saturday morning over coffee and a newspaper. The hot topic of the day was Iran, nuclear war, China, trade imbalance, and espionage. The plot involves a covert scheme aimed at achieving a more equitably balanced world economy. This time it’s the Russians and Americans tripping up the Chinese by creating the appearance of a world war between the Middle East and Europe. To level the playing field, the idea is to draw unwitting players into a political quagmire and take control of the game by rearranging allies. This can only happen once the heroine, Jordan Jakes, launches a missile buried in remote desert of Iran, which she intends to aim at Germany. In order to prevent an actual war, the missile must then be destroyed midair by an undetectable laser scheduled to launch on SpaceX Falcon 9. Success comes down to precision timing and no mistakes.

When a targeted NASA scientist, Ben Johnson, follows the heroine into Iran, he changes the game. The fate of the world now hinges on the love of this one man who is willing to risk all for the only woman he’s ever cared about, and one woman, a CIA covert operative, who must learn that in life we’re allowed to embrace love.

Beyond the basic plot and love story, THE LIBRA AFFAIR offers a glimpse at Persian culture, religion, and the hardships suffered by the average citizen at the cost of their misguided leaders. Another of the book’s themes involves the destruction of space debris—a real and significant problem for inhabitants of Earth.

The title of the book, “Libra,” speaks not only to balance, but it is also the name of the heroine’s mission and the ICBM she must launch and destroy; and, taking the sport a step further, the spies use astrological terminology to communicate in code.


“With a plot akin to hit silver screen action thrillers, Daco jumps into the deep end of an international spy love story with her romantic suspense, THE LIBRA AFFAIR.” Aimee Krenz, Novels Alive TVRead the full review here.

“Daco weaves a complicated spy game, rather like a Jason Bourne movie — only instead of the usual male secret agent, we get Jordan Jakes.” Anna Dougherty, RT Book Reviews

“LIBRA balances intrigue with romance.” L. Dean Murphy, International Thriller Writers

“The Libra Affair” is a story that will appeal to those readers who enjoy heavy suspense stories, especially those that revolve around political machinations on a worldwide scale.” Jennifer Porter, Romance Novel News


Crimson Romance, a new eBook romance imprint from F+W Media, Inc., was launched in June 2012.
