Embattled Hearts by J.M. Madden

J.M. Madden is a fellow equestrian, and we love to post horse pics on our Facebook timeline. She's also an author in the Protect & Serve anthology.

Embattled Hearts is FREE!

"I predict this series will be one of the all-time best published in 2013." Romance Junkies 

John Palmer hasn’t felt like a real man since he was injured during combat in Iraq. Though not content with his new life, he is mostly adapting, just like the other vets at the Lost ‘N’ Found Investigative Service. When Shannon Murphy is hired on as the new office manager, life suddenly gets a lot more interesting. Before long, John finds himself wondering if he could ever be the kind of man Shannon needs. 
Shannon Murphy wasn’t really looking for love when she hired on at LNF, but finds herself hopelessly attracted to the sex-on-wheels former Marine, John Palmer. The man is grumpy and nearly impossible to work with, but his brand of masculinity appeals to her on a basic level. Soon Shannon is wondering just what it would take for John to want her the way she wants him. 
When an old enemy tries to settle a vendetta against Shannon, John insists on protecting her. He moves into her house, fanning the spark of attraction into a blaze. But the danger continues to escalate. Will the connection that they’ve found survive when they’re thrust into a fight for their lives?

A Cutthroat Business by Jenna Bennett

Many of you already know Jenna Bennett, also a Protect & Serve author. Jenna and I have been friends for a very long time, and she's my most trusted friend when it comes to my writing.

Enjoy her first book in her Savannah Martin Mystery series for FREE!

The first book in the USA Today bestselling Savannah Martin series from New York Times bestselling author Jenna Bennett. 

Everyone has warned new-minted realtor Savannah Martin that real estate is a cutthroat business. But Savannah doesn’t think she’s supposed to take the warning literally ... until an early morning phone call sends her to an empty house on the ‘bad’ side of town, where she finds herself standing over the butchered body of a competitor, face to face with the boy her mother always warned her about. 

Rafe Collier is six feet three inches of testosterone and trouble; tall, dark, and dangerous, with a murky past and no future—not the kind of guy a perfect Southern Belle should want to tangle with. In any way. But wherever Savannah turns, there he is, and making no bones about what he wants from her. 

Now Savannah must figure out who killed real estate queen Brenda Puckett, make a success of her new career, and avoid getting killed—or kissed—by Rafe, all before the money in her savings account runs out and she has to go back to selling make-up at the mall.

Tin God by Stacy Green

Stacy Green is an author I met at Writer's Police Academy. She's also a part of the Protect & Serve anthology.

"Stacy Green has the power to transport readers to a place and time. Whether it's the sticky heat of a Mississippi summer, or the cold terror of coming face to face with a murderer, her writing stimulates all the senses. TIN GOD is a very satisfying read." --Bestselling thriller author Rachel Abbott 
"Stacy Green has written an emotionally charged, thought-provoking and stunning mystery/suspense that will capture and hold you hostage until the last page is read." --The Kindle Book Review 

The truth can be as deadly as any weapon. 

Jaymee Ballard trusted only one person in Roselea,Mississippi with the secret of her lost daughter. When that person is brutally murdered, it leaves her with heartbreak and a slew of unanswered questions. The eerie similarity to a murder of one of Jaymee's close friends years ago causes her to realize her past has come back to haunt her and may cost her own life. 

Years of deception and abuse leave Jaymee with few options and fewer allies. She turns to the widower of her friend—a man struggling with his own demons—to help her find her daughter and identify the killer before he strikes again. 

Before all evidence, the truth—and Jaymee's daughter—are lost. 

TIN GOD is a romantic thriller set in a small town. Filled with suspense and featuring a strong female protagonist, this mystery leaves the reader wanting more. 

"Stacy Green writes some of the best villains out there while at the same time keeping them well hidden. I highly recommend this book for adults who love suspenseful mystery with a dose of romance and a surprise you don't see coming. I will definitely be reading more of her stories." --Open Book Society

Turn the Page by Allie K. Adams

Allie K. Adams is a hoot to hang out with, and an author in our Protect & Serve anthology.
From the USA Today bestselling author of the TREX romantic suspense series...

He's never met a system he couldn't hack or a situation he couldn't charm his way out of. Until he met her.

It's twenty years later - Kane Dennon, son of Kade Dennon and Kathleen Turner, is now twenty-six and following in his father's footsteps in every sense of the word. He's estranged from his family and living in Seattle, has more regrets than friends, and doesn't expect to live to see twenty-seven. His latest job isn't exactly going as planned, thanks to a sexy, yet nosy neighbor catching him piggybacking on her Wi-Fi and interrupting him before he can finish the hack. Just as he leaves to confront her, shots erupt, shredding his apartment. Kane races next door, expecting to find his neighbor curled into a ball, screaming as bullets whistle by. Instead, he finds her shooting back.

If it weren't for bad luck, she'd have no luck at all. That's CSI tech Eleanor Rigby's motto. Make that ex-CSI tech. After being fired for stealing evidence from a crime scene, she can't get another job to save her life. If she doesn't find some way to make money, she can add homeless to the list. Leave it to her to have the proverbial tall, dark, and gorgeous man living next door--and he turns out to be a criminal. When she's literally caught in the crossfire, she ends up on the run with him, dodging more bullets while doing everything in her power not to fall for his charm.

Everything about Ellie draws Kane in--from her fiery red hair to her amazing eye for detail. He could use her specific set of skills to figure out what his latest employer is up to and has her help track the evidence. When they discover the hack is part of a much bigger plan, one that involves them both, they must find a way to stop it before it's too late.

Sometimes life isn't about the choices we make, but how we handle the consequences.

This story can be enjoyed without prior knowledge of the "Kathleen Turner" world created by Tiffany Snow. However, it's best served with a heart-racing helping of the other stories in the series on sale now.

Chasing Justice by Danielle Stewart

Danielle Stewart is another of the Protect & Serve authors.

Read Chasing Justice for FREE!

Piper Anderson has been given a fresh start in the picturesque town of Edenville, North Carolina. But her plans of settling into a normal life are derailed when she witnesses a prominent judge in her community committing a violent assault. Running from her own past and fueled by a passion to make the judge answer for his crimes, Piper is forced to decide if she’ll play by the rules or achieve justice in her own way. 

Complicating things further, Piper finds herself fighting a powerful attraction to rookie cop, Bobby Wright. Although she’s increasingly enamored with Bobby, his staunch belief in the justice system is in stark contrast to her own. She may not share his opinions about the effectiveness of the law, but she certainly can’t deny how safe she feels when she’s in his arms or how every kiss leaves her desperate for more. 

For Piper, the idea of finally living an ordinary life with a man to love is tempting. However, fate keeps placing the judge, quite literally, in her path. Will she decide the only way to win is to be as wicked as the judge, but with righteous intentions? And more importantly, will Bobby choose to let her go, or follow her as she crosses the line and takes justice into her own hands?

A Whole New Brand

I hope you like the look of the blog! We have a whole new look, and brand. I realized my website and my book covers didn't reflect the stories I write, so I made some changes.
My books are snarky and fun, and there are a few dead bodies along the way, so now I think I've found the "look."
