SUSPECT MY HEART
September 24th, 2020
If love and hate are two sides of the same coin, murder could be a flip away.
As prime suspect in her ex-husband’s disappearance, single mother Lorna Doyle longs to trust CJ, the sexy cop, but the only one way to protect her children from the thugs sniffing around is to keep her cheating ex’s secret.
Homicide detective CJ Whittier has an ex-wife, perpetually disappointed parents, and a dead body. Of the three, he prefers the dead body. His teenage daughter is the only good thing in his life, until Lorna.
With a high value stolen collectibles deal going down soon and a dead dealer in their quiet Minneapolis suburb, CJ rushes to find the victim’s silent partner before the killer does. He can’t shake the feeling there’s a connection between his murder victim and Lorna’s missing ex. His cop senses whisper Lorna’s hiding something. Is she the killer or the next victim?
With his head and heart at war, can he keep things professional while he seeks the truth?
PROTECT MY HEART
May 20, 2021
She didn’t want anyone’s help, but he didn’t give her a choice.
Twenty years after witnessing her brother’s death, pediatric psychologist Dr. Elizabeth Garcia returns to Minnesota to testify at his killer’s parole hearing. While home, she helps a family friend in need of a child advocate after a young boy witnesses a shooting.
The attraction she feels for the cop working the case, blindsides her. He chased danger as if it’s a game. Good thing she was leaving soon, or so she thought. Threats from her past resurface, putting her life in danger.
Detective Jim Swenson just wants to do his job without interruptions. So when Dr. Garcia inserts herself in his case, she becomes a sexy distraction. She has the body of a pinup model but represents the high society woman he swore off years ago.
But when someone takes an unhealthy interest in the lovely psychologist, his cop instincts kick in even though his heart screams, “Danger, danger! Proceed with caution.”
CAPTURE MY HEART
The last thing Officer Amy Larson has time for is her hot neighbor and his odd pet. Her hands are full with her newly paroled brother, and after four years, she finally has new information confirming her suspicions about her father’s death. However, someone wants her to let the pass stay dead.
After being shot on the job, BCA agent Trey Fenley questions his instincts. His first assignment is to keep his identity a secret while ferreting out the corruption in Ashwood Police Department. Sparks fly and complications arise when his sexy neighbor falls on the short list of suspects.
A FUN, FLIRTY, AND SUSPENSEFUL ASHWOOD BLUES NOVELLA!

Mira’s having a week from hell... and it's only Tuesday.
Logistics Supervisor Mira Nolan could sniff out a fabulous shoe sale with the accuracy of a narcotics dog. Too bad her skills didn’t work to ferret out compatible men. After another horrible breakup, she wonders whether she was at a sale at Nordstrom when the good Lord was handing out mate-judging skills. Her crappy day takes a nosedive when she’s mugged in the mall parking lot. A handsome stranger steps in to help. Can Mira trust her gut and this man, or should she run the other way?
Shipping company CFO Harrison Whittier never wanted to play the hero like his police detective brother, until he rescues a frazzled woman from a mugger. Turns out, his act of heroism isn’t a one time event, not when he discovers the mugger is his own employee, and the beautiful woman he rescued is his customer. All his protective instincts rise to the surface for this woman. He’ll do anything to keep Mira safe and get to the bottom of this mess. But is it enough to convince her to take a chance on him?
