Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for The Epic Story of RJ and York by Susan May Warren, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


It’s an epic adventure across Europe, from France to Italy, to Germany and even Russia in this riveting, fun, romantic, enthralling trilogy about true love, honor, and the cost of, well, saving the world.

Title: Out of the Night
Series: The Epic Story of York & RJ #1
Author: Susan May Warren
Publisher: SDG Publishing
Release Date: August 9, 2022
Genre: Romantic Suspense (Clean)

The romantic trilogy ignites in book one of the Epic Story of RJ and York!

He’s not looking for trouble…

All former spy and current national security agent York Newgate wants is to propose to the woman he loves, RJ Marshall. Then they can move to Shelly, Washington, and start the calm, safe life he’s been dreaming of for over a year.

Too bad trouble doesn’t agree…

Or maybe RJ simply attracts trouble because she’s just going out for coffee when she spots a wanted, known terrorist standing in the middle of a street in Paris. At least she thinks it’s international criminal Alan Martin, the mastermind behind a plot to kill the president.

But he’s in jail, right?

Wrong. Martin has escaped, and it’s up to RJ—and York—to keep him in their sights until he can be apprehended. But chasing down Martin means following him into the darkness of whatever plot he’s cooked up now.

Will he ever outrun trouble to find his happy ending?

So much for York’s epic proposal. Now, he just wants to escape Europe with their lives.

Title: I Will Find You
Series: The Epic Story of York & RJ #2
Author: Susan May Warren
Publisher: SDG Publishing
Release Date: August 16, 2022
Genre: Romantic Suspense (Clean)

The gripping romantic adventure continues across Europe in this second installment of the Epic Story of RJ and York!

The woman he loves has vanished…

When RJ Marshall said she’d be right back, York should have objected. No, he wasn’t going to let her run off to Berlin, even if it was to save a little girl.

Only problem—she’d told him this while he was unconscious. So really, it doesn’t count, and it’s not his fault that she’s gone missing. And, he didn’t know why he expected RJ not to chase danger into trouble. But now he has to find her before criminal mastermind Alan Martin tracks her down.

She’s in over her head…

RJ didn’t mean to leave York behind, but she’s on a mission to save a little girl caught in the crossfire of Martin’s terrorist plot. Now, she’ll have to find the girl and keep her safe while leaving clues for York to follow her.

But who will catch up to her first—York, or the man with a vendetta?

Release Date: August 23, 2022
Genre: Romantic Suspense (Clean)

The riveting conclusion to the Epic Story of RJ and York!

Her worst nightmare has happened….

RJ refuses to believe it, and until she has proof, she’s going to keep searching for answers. And most of all, for the man she loves, even if it means diving into the past he always wanted to keep secret.

The kind of secrets that could have set York free. It’ll take a trip back to Russia, to the sketchy and dark history of York’s life to find the clues to the sinister plans of a global terrorist. And the answers that might lead her to a happy ending.

Or has it? What if her happy ending is more than a dream?

If RJ hopes to save her country—and find out the truth about York—she’ll have to become the high-action, Sydney Bristow spy that she always dreamed of being. But really, does RJ really have what it takes—with, or without the man she loves—to save the world?

And if she does…what will be the cost?

Interview with Susan May Warren

If you had to describe yourself in three words, what would they be?

Adventurous, creative, hard-working

What was your favorite book when you were a kid? Did it play any part in your writing style today?

I loved a book called Ghosts, about a couple kids who go back in time (like ghosts) to help save one of their ancestors. It probably rooted in me my desire for adventure and second chances (and make me a lover of time-travel!) 

What book is currently on your bedside table?

I’m enjoying the Extraordinary deaths of Mrs. Kip by Sara Brunsvold. It’s a creative, fun, sweet story, and something beautiful to read at night before bed.

Is writing your full-time career? Or would you like it to be?

Yes. I’ve been writing full time since 2005, and I love it. I often lay in bed at night and sort out the problems of my characters. And when I finish a book, it’s not look long before I am itching to write another one!

What has been your favorite part of the publishing journey?

I love seeing the story come alive—so probably when I’m finished and it’s ready to go to press. I love seeing reactions of readers, but in the end, I write for the joy of the calling to write great, life-changing stories. I am so blessed by amazing readers who write to me and share that their lives have been blessed or touched by those stories.

If you could travel anywhere or any when for research where/when would you go?

I’ve been blessed to travel extensively—but I’ve never been to South America, so someday I’d like to go to Costa Rica and Argentina. I guess I’ll have to do research there!

What comes first for you — the plot or the characters — and why?

I always start with a story seed, or an idea about the plot. Then I ask…who is in this story and why is this story important to their life journey. From there, I find the person who is most affected by this plot and I dig in and discover who they are, what they want and why, and build that character. From that, I can start to see plot points and pieces of their story come together, so I return to the plot and start figuring that out. But in all, it’s a very organic process.

Can you share with us something about the book that isn’t in the blurb?

Fans are going to see a couple of beloved characters on the pages, people they’ve met in previous series who need more to their journey! And maybe even an excursion to a place cooked up by my author/writing partner Rachel Hauck!

What were the key challenges you faced when writing this book?

This is obviously a story about two characters who are already beloved, and love each other. So coming up with new facets to their backstory was a challenge, as well as causing relationship trouble between them. And, concocting a plot that worked with my OTHER concurrent series, Sky King Ranch, was a bit of a trick. But I think we got there in the end! I think readers will really love this sidelight adventure in between the Sky King Ranch books.
