Product Description

Former Marine sniper Colton "Cowboy" Neeley is recovering from a life of bad choices. Piper Blum, daughter of dissident Yakov Rosenblum, is in hiding--from life and the assassins gunning for her family. When she begs Colton to help extract her father from Israel, Colton petitions the group Nightshade to consider the mission. The team agrees, and soon they're deep six--straight into the Holy Land for a snatch-n-grab of Yakov. Will Colton and Piper make the treacherous trek out of hostile territory and into safety with their love--and lives--intact?

Editorial Reviews

An action-packed thrill ride from start to finish...if you liked CBS's long running hit series THE UNIT you're going to love Ronie Kendig's DIGITALIS. Enjoy the ride and the read. I only have one question...where do I sign up for Nightshade?

            Bob Hamer, veteran FBI undercover agent and the author of ENEMIES AMONG US

Digitalis is a story of skill and purpose woven with love and spine-tingling danger...that will live long past the last page. None of us fully realize the dedication of those who keep our world safe.

DiAnn Mills, Christy Award Winning author of Pursuit of Justice

The pacing is fantastic. I didn’t skim a single page. As in the first book, Kendig hooks you into Colton’s and Piper’s world with such effectiveness that I never questioned the credibility of the events. Speaking of events, the plot kept me guessing unto the end, including the way the romance between Colton and Piper developed.

And of course, the book has lots of carnage.

I know this book is labeled as a romance book, but I’ve recommended it and the first book in the series, Nightshade, to my husband. It’s the perfect balance of man book and sigh-worthy romance. There aren’t enough man books out there and I’m glad to finally have a book I can share with him.

Ronie Kendig peals back the layers of her character’s in such an intriguing way that you not only watch the character growth but you also feel that character’s pain and growth. Trusting God is not always an easy thing and Ronie Kendig puts that into light with each of her books. What I also love is that Ronie Kendig sheds light on what real soldiers who see conflict and combat go through today when they come off the field and out of the military. The flashbacks that Colton experiences are similar in nature to those of real soldiers and their experiences. I love how she sheds light on this as well as helping to make the average reader aware of these very real situations.

I was very sad when I finished Digitalis (Discarded Heroes, Book 2) because I knew that I would now have to wait until July to reconnect with this elite group.

Each chapter reveals new secrets, leading to a crescendo of surprises.  Family values, team loyalty, and relational fidelity are strong for both lead characters.  Kendig portrays military engagements realistically, without egregious gore, and she leaves out the expletives.  Digiatlis is #2 in the "Discarded Heroes" series and is well written, easily read, and a captivating page-turner.

Kendig does a great job keeping the action going.  She also shows the struggle Colton has with his faith in God and his struggle with the mission and his task to kill terrorists.

Ronie Kendig knows how to weave an intelligent and action-packed plot.  She also knows how to season such a tale with the perfect amount of romance.  This is a completely enjoyable novel that will keep you up well past bedtime turning the pages of this incredible tale!

This unputdownable page-turner has just about the right amount of everything: action, romance, humor, and espionage. And I loved the stunning climax in Israel. I did grow a bit frustrated with Colton’s love interest Piper, but after she dried her tears and tried trusting Colton, I decided she might be worthy of him. As for me, I discovered that Digitalis is good for my heart. In other words, Colton Neeley is my new favorite hero. Of course, I haven’t read the other books in this series yet . . .

A story with tough men and love that isn't sentimental and sweet, but forged in pain and faith and forgiveness. Action adventure that leaves the reader little time to take a break.

Ronie Kendig never ceases to amaze me. "Rapid-Fire Fiction" describes her awesome books to a tee! Each time I pick up a book by her, I know I am in for a wild adventure. Within minutes, I’m completely sucked into the characters and their situations. By the time it comes to a heart pounding ending, I’m dying for more! Digitalis was A-MAZ-ING!! Totally. Her entire Discarded Hero series is completely awesome and one that will remain proudly on my favorites bookshelf for forever! After reading all three books in this series – Nightshade, Digitalis, and Wolfsbane – I still cannot say which one is my favorite. Each one has something that I totally loved about them. The Nightshade team is just an awesome, dedicated group of guys! Gotta love each one!
From start to finish, I loved this book. Totally! The Discarded Hero series, each and every book, is awesome! Ronie Kendig has become an author who, when I hear she’s coming out with a new book (even before I know what it’s about), I know I’m going to get it. I can always trust Ronie to write a book that will keep my adrenalin running, my mind reeling, and my heart thumping double time. Way ta’ go, Ronie!! I can't wait till the next book comes out, Firethorn!

Balancing a story of high action and deep emotions isn’t easy, but with Digitalis, author Ronie Kendig pulls it off with the casual grace of a truly talented storyteller. I don’t know what kept me on the edge of my seat more, the fast-paced military intrigue or the powerful tugs on my heart. Doesn’t matter: This is one pulse-pounding adventure you don’t want to miss.
--Robert Liparulo, author of Comes a Horseman, Germ, and the Dreamhouse Kings

In Digitalis, the second book of the Nightshade series, Ronie Kendig has done it again. Passion, intrigue, and heart stopping action make this story impossible to put down.

Action, great character, romance, and faith weave together to make this story a must read.

Wow!  I fell in love with the men of Nightshade in the first book of this series and I was really looking forward to reading about the hunky cowboy's, Colton Neely, story. This book did not disappoint at all. It was everything I thought it would be and more. Action, suspense, drama, romance. I loved, loved, loved it.

I'd highly recommend this book!  I cannot wait for the other books in this series and to get to know the other members of Nightshade. 

I would like to say just how much I enjoyed reading Digitalis. I was at the edge of my seat through the last third of the book. I loved both Colton and Piper, and it was exciting to see their relationship develop. 

 The twist at the end was especially good. I am looking forward to reading further books in the series.

I have put Ronie Kendig’s books at the top of my must read list! I lost a good night’s sleep over this novel because I could not stop reading. Intense in places, I didn’t want to close my eyes and wait until morning to see what happened. Colton has some serious issues, and Ronie doesn’t shy away from it.

I can’t wait to read what she has in store for us with the third and fourth books!

Reading a Ronie Kendig novel is like watching a movie—a nail-biting, intense action movie. The words seem to jump off the page and leave you breathless as Colton takes you from one heart-pounding scene to another. Novel Journey and I give it our highest recommendation.

In this book, there is a lot of action and suspense just as the first, but even more, and there is also a lot more of the romantic element. Don't let that scare you away guys. This, just like the first book, will definitely capture male readers' interest. There is a lot of action, guns - all the stuff that the average man is interested in, yet women should and do enjoy these books also.

Kendig portrays military engagements realistically, without egregious gore, and she leaves out the expletives.  Digitalis is #2 in the "Discarded Heroes" series and is well written, easily read, and a captivating page-turner.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Ronie Kendig
Located in: North Texas
Submitted: September 24, 2010

    What was your motivation behind this project?  The Discarded Heroes series was birthed out a real-life story of heartache and brokenness--a marriage destroyed by the effects of combat-related PTSD. I knew when I saw this family torn apart that I could never again write a story about our military heroes without showing the toll it takes on them and their families.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  It is my hope that this series will serve as a means to dialogue--for our heroes and our nation as we welcome them back home from brutal tours of duty.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  It's both heart-rending and inspiring to read true accounts of what our men and women in the Armed Forces deal with. To me, I don't see how anyone can read of their harrowing journeys without being moved both to action and compassion. I pray I continue to learn and grown, both as a writer and a voice for our military heroes.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  One of the most significant influences in my life is my husband, an army veteran and disabled vet. He is my anchor in the tumultuous storms of life, and I learn so much from him. A few of my favorite authors: CS Lewis, Tolkien, Robert Liparulo, Rick Acker, Bob Hamer, Lisa Bergren, Kathy Tyers, Karen Hancock, Stephen Lawhead, Susan May Warren. A few of my favorite artists: Skillet, Kutless, The Letter Black, Big Daddy Weave (especially their song "Audience of One" that helps me write nearly every book), Newsboys, Red, Enya, Day of Fire, Chris Tomlin, Hillsong, Building 429...

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  The Discarded Heroes has one mission: to open dialogue. If the story/stories touch you, please share it with someone else. Spread the word. Help our heroes. THANK our heroes!
