Romantic Suspense


Man in a white shirt holding a gun, stands on courthouse stepsNew release coming soon!

Police detective Brand Gallagher is bent on revenge against mob boss Giovanni Castellano, the man who ordered his brother’s death. Now undercover within the mob, he’s getting closer to exacting his long-planned vengeance. But when he’s ordered to kill a juror who refused to hang a jury, Brand knows he can’t do it. He has to save Juror No. 7, the lovely Lily Raines, even though it will blow the cover on his three-year mission.

Lily is threatened by thugs to set a killer free, but her father taught her to do the right thing, so she votes to convict. Now her life is in danger and her only hope is a mob hit man named Brand. But Brand seems more like a hero than a thug.

Brand and Lily find themselves on the run, with no one to depend on except each other. Lily trusts Brand with her life, but can she trust him with her heart? By protecting Lily, Brand could lose everything he’s worked for, and gain all he’s ever wanted.

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.

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?
