LOUISIANA LAWMEN: These  lawmen will go to any lengths for honor and duty…
and the women they cannot resist.

No Hero: Louisiana Lawmen, Book 1


Police Detective Devereux Gautier knows he’s no hero.


He’s seen too much and failed too many times. Now the homeless kids he mentors are dying and the only person who can help him find the killer is the woman who dug up his past to destroy him. Dev needs her help to solve the case, but he can’t trust her and he can’t trust himself around her, because she’s the sexiest, most intelligent woman he’s ever met.


Journalist Reghan Connor knows there are no heroes, and she’s out to prove it on the air for all of New Orleans. Her latest debunked hero is Detective Dev Gautier, who hates her for exposing his mistakes. Now Reghan has been given the key to the murders of Dev’s homeless teens, but how can she convince him she’s not setting him up for another fall? As they work together to solve the murders, Reghan learns that being a hero is complicated and loving a hero can be downright deadly.

Addictive and well written, Books and Spoons Reviews.

It’s a very gritty story; if you like Mr. Perfect by Linda Howard then you definitely want to read this. Whiskey in the Jar Reviews

I was on the edge of my seat for most of this book. I sacrificed sleep to try to get to the end faster. Jean Boehmke

No Saint: Louisiana Lawmen, Book 2

(coming January 2018)

New Orleans Police Detective Rick Easterling is no saint: he’s the NOPD’s best undercover cop. Known as the Man of a Thousand Faces, he’s a rogue ­– breaking the rules to solve cases his way. When his brother dies of a drug overdose and Rick is suspected of being a dirty cop, the detective vows to clear his name and avenge his brother’s death.


Rookie police officer Lusinda Johnson has a personal axe to grind with dirty cops. When she volunteers to work undercover to shadow Rick, she tells herself his sexy, brooding bad boy demeanor doesn’t fool her, but the longer they work together, the harder it is to see him as anything other than a hero.


As “Sin” and Rick investigate the corrupt underbelly of New Orleans night life, they find that their lies imperil them both as much as the drug lords closing in. Will they learn to trust each other in time to save themselves and their growing feelings?
