Next Generation Series
Meadow Holiday was off-limits.
Completely. Totally. Out of bounds.
And achingly beautiful.
With a shiny new badge clipped to my belt, I thought I could save the world or at least protect those I loved.
A sadistic serial killer proved me wrong.
The only way to keep Meadow safe was to break the rules, keep her close, and claim her as my own. Only she proved to be harder to catch than the lunatic running around on a murder spree.
I had no business falling in love in the middle of an investigation. But she's the one, I feel it deep in bones.
Special Agent Nick Clark gave me hope.
He was so far out of my league it was laughable.
So damn good looking it hurt to look at him.
He was everything I'd dreamed of having, but knew I'd never have.
His charm was irresistible, and the first time he kissed me I stupidly fell in love.
He promised me a world I thought was long ago stolen from me.
A fairytale where a sexy FBI agent saves the scared and scarred girl.
Just when Nick breaks down the fortress I'd built to protect myself and pushes through my doubts - it's too late.
The villain in our story has come for me.
I knew better than to believe in happily ever afters.
Ethan Lennox became a single father at sixteen when his girlfriend signed over custody of their newborn daughter and left to chase her dreams. Eight years later he’s a police officer, fiercely protective of the little girl and dedicated to his work. He’s never had time for dating and won’t allow any woman to betray his trust or abandon him again. But the intriguing woman who shows up to rent the room he’s offering has him rethinking his ideas.
Photographer Honor Sullivan is on the run. Her powerful, ruthless stepfather would do anything to advance his political career, including forcing Honor into an arranged, loveless marriage. Her sexy new landlord and his adorable daughter offer just the kind of refuge she needs, a home full of love and honesty, so different from what she’s endured the last few years. But Honor is unwittingly carrying a secret, one that could endanger anyone around her. A secret that could get her killed.
As the attraction deepens between Ethan and Honor, events from the past are closing in on them. Will Ethan once again lose a woman he’s come to care about, or is he willing to risk his heart to chase a new dream of love?
DEA Agent Jason Walker became a widower at twenty-eight. Two years later he’s still torturing himself with guilt. They’d married young, and she’d been his first love, but her illness changed everything. They’d fought a losing battle and he’d held her to the very end. Now he just wants to be left alone with his misery and memories.
Mercy James is no stranger to grief and loneliness. Her brother’s death of a drug overdose, and her police officer father’s death in the line of duty were the driving forces behind her pursuit of a career in the DEA. In spite of—or maybe because of—her past, Mercy doesn’t believe in feeling sorry for others, or for herself.
When a case brings Jason and Mercy together, and their attraction heats up, can her tough, straightforwardness help Jason learn to live in the light again? He’d lost his first love, but is he ready for a forever love?
Tuesday Knowls is done. Once burned, twice shy. Twice burned? Game over. On the outside Tuesday has it all. She comes from money, she’s a beautiful runway model, her smile comes easy, and she’s quick to laugh. But looks can be deceiving. Inside, she’s lost and lonely. So when the smokin’ hot firefighter swoops in with his sweet talk and promises, she decides to be the one who uses, for once.
Jackson Clark is a man who knows what he wants. And he wants Tuesday. He sees past the beautiful façade she shows the world straight to the pain she hides. When Tuesday offers him a friends with benefits arrangement—minus the friendship—he has no choice but to accept her offer. He’s willing to do anything to get close to the elusive woman and show her he’s worth the risk.
When Tuesday starts getting presents from a secret admirer, she goes into a tailspin. She’s been down this ugly road before and she knows how it can destroy her life.
Can she really trust that Jackson is the good guy in this mess? And, if he is, will she realize in time that not only will he protect her heart, but he might just save her life?
