When someone frames Gina Rizzo for murder, there’s only one person who can help her—the man who broke her heart years ago.
For Marine Cole Hanson, staring down death is easier than facing the woman who stole his soul and then betrayed him. But when Cole sees Gina in handcuffs, old feelings flare.
Spoiled New York rogue Royce Mc Arthur lives a charmed life. He sees no reason to settle down, until his mother issues her decree that he must grow up, find a wife and produce some grandchildren, preferably before she dies of old age. But his choices are quite limited considering the only women of his acquaintance are ones of ill repute.
After a bitter fight, Jenna Mosier’s pregnant sister ran away. Now, ten years later, Tanya is dead—murdered. A bloody note clutched in her hand pleads for someone to rescue her baby—a child Jenna must find to make up for not saving her sister. Former Marine Reed Adler thought he left danger behind when he retired from Special Ops command.

Excerpt: Charlie straightened, his deep green eyes perplexed. “I said as much. John said something weird,something like ‘the knowledge of a thing is worth money in the bank.’ I didn’t know what he meant. I was more concerned about his allegations against Janelle.

There are all kinds of ways for a relationship to be tested, even broken, irrevocably; it’s the endings that we’re unprepared for. My life has become a roller coaster ride, mixed with equal amounts of pure joy and exposed fear; and, sometimes, this unfathomable incredulity. This arrives in spurts, like adrenalin or injected heroin; well, how I imagine injected heroin would feel.
