Today I’m on the ‘Calculated Sabotage (The Calculated Series: Book 3)’ blogtour, organised by Love Books Group Tour.
To promote this book I have a guest post written by its author, K.T. Lee, but b
About the Author :
K.T. Lee is a writer, mom and engineer who grew up on a steady diet of books from a wide variety of genres. When K.T. began to write the kind of books she wanted to read, she mixed clever women and the sciences with elements from thrillers (and a dash of romance) to create The Calculated Series.
CIA operations officer Quinn King will do whatever it takes to find the person who killed her partner. She follows the evidence to Innovative Rocket Technologies, a start-up company and current darling of the rocket world. Their most recent launch, however, ended in an explosion that Quinn believes is connected to her partner’s death.
The CIA sends Cam Mitchell to provide backup for Quinn — and to make sure she isn’t too emotionally invested. With Cam watching her back, Quinn embeds herself at IRT. She soon discovers there is more to the failed launch than IRT has shared with the public. And someone has a vested interest in keeping that information under wraps.
When the CIA finds new evidence that someone is actively sabotaging the next launch, they call in Parker, Ree and Mike from the FBI to help manage a growing number of loose ends. However, once Cam and Quinn realize why the rocket is being sabotaged, it puts them right in the crosshairs of a killer.
Calculated Sabotage is Book 3 in The Calculated Series. All books in The Calculated Series may be enjoyed as standalone novels or as a series.

Who is Your Favorite Character?
One of the great things about writing books in a series is that the reader gets to get to see their favorite characters again in future books, while each book can introduce new characters or bring minor characters in previous books to the forefront. When I was asked to pick a favorite character in the series, it was a bit like picking a favorite child – each character has their own unique traits that make them likeable or interesting to write.
However, my favorite character introduced in Calculated Sabotage is definitely Quinn King. Writing Quinn’s story was not only great fun, it was also a challenge. Quinn is incredibly intense but her intensity comes from a place of deep caring. While she isn’t the type to hug you until you feel better, she will take your problem seriously, get to the heart of it and then solve it. Even if she has to track down a killer to do it. Quinn is the perfect character to pair with Cam Mitchell, a former Navy SEAL turned CIA operations officer who was first introduced in Calculated Contagion. Much like Quinn, Cam is anything but a one-dimensional character.
When Quinn and Cam first meet, their interaction starts as one of mutual misunderstanding, each believing they are talking to the spy they have been sent to find. Their rocky beginning slowly evolves into an unmatched partnership once they learn to trust each other’s skills and motivations. They bond over their mutual competitiveness and Quinn’s habit of baking when she can’t sleep. What I love about writing Quinn is that while she isn’t perfect, she’s exactly the kind of friend you’d want in your corner. Yes, she’s tough as nails, but she also defies expectations and simple definitions.
