There’s a secret.

A woman is heard whimpering in a parking garage.

A dark side to the powerfully rich is exposed.

And Alex Gantry is at the center of it all.

After several frightening events that shook Alex’s world, things have settled down.

So it seems…

Elite life coach, Alex Gantry, is enjoying her new life in the Washington, D.C. Beltway.

T.J. Gale, who’s part greenpreneur, part leader of a quick-strike unit of former military and intelligence professionals, has set her heart aflame.

Alex and T.J. are in love.

Enter Jett Spence, a man who once was part of T.J.’s world but who is now an unknown, because no one can tell whose side he’s on.

Two thousand miles away in Hollywood, Alex’s old haunts, the powerful producer Brian Marks is falling apart because he’s lost her. The woman he never thought would leave him is now in the bed of a younger man.

In New York City, T.J.’s ex-wife, Lisa, is looking to get even with the woman she thinks destroyed her marriage. Her vengeful father Davin Dalaney is eager to help because T.J. is no longer willing to ignore his criminal profits.

Brian is intent on getting Alex back.

Lisa wants to make her pay.

And T.J. is attempting to keep her safe.

Alex believes she can take care of herself, but being with T.J. has taught her it’s not always that simple.

From the Washington, D.C. Beltway to Los Angeles, California, the stakes couldn’t be higher.

Can you tell us a little bit about the characters in Beltway Betrayers?

Alex Gantry has catapulted an elite personal life coaching business into a commodity.
Alex works with the hottest producers, actors, and anyone else feeling the stress of Hollywood. She's independent, successful, and likes being attached and single, even when she's in love.

Brian Marks muscled into the indie film production world to make it big. He's never been married, and is gorgeous. He didn't take his relationship with Alex seriously until she was gone. He's still grappling with the loss of Alex to a man 20 years his junior, who Brian thinks is half the man he is.

The founder of Banks and Associates is Alex's best friend, Berkley Banks, and it almost cost Berkley her life. She founded a social media marketing company that is helping companies deal with the new media world. It's one of the hottest firms in the Beltway. Berkley convinced Alex to move from Hollywood to the Washington, D.C., by offering her a partnership.

T.J. Gale is one of Berkley Banks's hottest clients. He's a former Wall Street hot shot with a family legacy that holds sway in Washington, D.C. He's an environmental entrepreneur. But there's more to him, which begins to unfold in Beltway Betrayers. T.J. also runs a private military firm, which means action is never far away.

Malcolm Steele is T.J.'s closest confidant. He runs T.J.'s private military firm, a lucrative endeavor that gets involved in specialized situations needing security from former military personnel and intelligence officers.

Lisa Dalaney is the daughter of Davin Dalaney, from whom she gets her identity and her paycheck. She's fighting for her place in Dalaney Enterprises, and fending off the fury she feels over her father's misogyny. After finding out her father has no intention of leaving her in charge of the company after him, Lisa's put another plan together.

Davin Dalaney came up the hard way, made himself in the shipping business, while seeing that globalism meant Pandora's box was finally open. Everything is for sale. Davin funded LSS, and now that T.J. has dumped his daughter, there's no reason to be nice anymore. Davin wants revenge.

Phyllis Lawrence is T.J.'s stepmother. They are very close. She's a powerful woman in the rarified air of international philanthropists and global financiers. Phyllis is the widow of Teddy Gale, who was privy to the secrets of presidents, influencers, and the mighty. Now Phyllis wields his power.
