Random Heroes Collection!
I’m proud to announce the digital release of the first two books in my Random Heroes Collection. With an emphasis on both romance and suspense, Random Heroes is a collection of loosely interrelated romantic thrillers that can be read in any order.
It was the perfect place to disappear…
When Kacy Macgrath’s life crumbled two years ago, she changed her name and escaped to her grandmother’s cottage in Ireland. Here she lives anonymously, with no reminders of the past — except the terrifying images that continue to haunt her dreams. Images of the stormy night her husband, Alex, walked out on her — and fell into the raging waters near their Long Island home. After his death, Kacy uncovered secrets about Alex she was better off not knowing, so she ran away. Now someone is watching her.
Braedon Roche has traveled across an ocean looking for justice — to expose Kacy Macgrath as a master forger who, along with her late husband had nearly destroyed his career as an art dealer. What Braedon doesn’t expect is his undeniable attraction to the fragile widow hiding behind a web of deceptions. But Braedon isn’t the only man following Kacy. A savage killer stalks from the shadows, chipping away at her sanity, and trapping her in an unspeakable nightmare…
After the tragic deaths of her mother and sister, eight year old Riley O’Brien vows never to desert her father. Twenty-one years later, she stands by her father’s side as he makes a bid for the Presidency– trading her dreams for his. Her desires perpetually on hold, she has erected an emotional wall to keep out the prying eyes of the media. But her defenses are about to be shattered.
Investigative reporter Jake Mahoney hates politics and beautiful women. Recently divorced, and on the trail of a major story, Jake resents wasting his time covering an ice princess at a presidential rally. But when a car bomb throws him, literally, on top of the candidate’s daughter, Jake quickly realizes that Riley O’Brien is pure fire. No one has ever gotten under his skin like this before.
Their attraction is instant, and possibly fatal, as dangerous secrets from the past explode into the present, destroying one life after another in a nightmare of blind ambition…
For undercover FBI agent Katie Cavanaugh this was supposed to be a routine job-go in, get the evidence, catch a killer. But from the moment she lays eyes on John Brighton the intense charge in the air between them lets her know that the stakes will be higher this time around. Posing as his physical therapist allows Katie first-hand access to him but she can’t let the intimacy of living together cloud her judgment. She will need her instincts sharp if she is going to find him guilty…or prove his innocence.
Left for dead along a deserted highway, John awakes to find himself physically weakened, mentally scarred, and the lead suspect in a murder investigation. The only bright point in his life is Katie, warm and beautiful, she is the one person he thinks he can trust. But as a net of suspicion closes in, and as loyalties divide, John and Katie must work together to unravel the maze of secrets and lies that threaten to keep them apart forever…
Dancing in the Dark:
Two years after the accidental death of her husband and son, Sara Martin is still wearing her wedding band, using it as a shield against a future without love. Then a persistent prank caller shatters her fragile peace of mind and brings detective Eric D’Angelo into her life. Eric reminds her of the passion she never thought she’d feel again — and the idea of surrendering to it scares her. But Sara will soon discover that she never knew the meaning of the word fear… until now.
Even for a seasoned detective like Eric D’Angelo, the rash of murders haunting the city of Austin seems unbelievably grisly. Still, he’s worked enough of these cases to know that eventually even a murderer as meticulous as the Sinatra Killer will make a mistake. Then Sara becomes the madman’s target. Between fighting off the ghosts in her past and the monster in her present, Eric is forced to wonder if their hopes of a future together will ever see the light of day… A

They both know the games killers play…
FBI criminal profiler Madison Harper understands dangerous minds. Tough, tenacious, with nerves of steel, she’s the best of the best. So is her new partner, Gabriel Roarke, a crack CIA operative who likes to do things his way. When the two are forced to jointly head up a task force investigating murder in high places – it’s no surprise that sparks begin to fly.
As they race through a shadow world of power, politics and deadly secrets, the passion that simmers between Madison and Gabriel soon ignites. But a clever killer at the top of his game has challenged Madison to play to the very end. Now all she can trust is her instincts—and Gabriel, the one man reckless enough to keep her alive…
Great news! For the next week (April 13-17) the first book in my Last Chance Series, ENDGAME, will be on sale for 99 cents!!
“Madison Harper?” The voice was deep, almost a bass, the sound sending a wave of something akin to pleasure coursing down her spine. She swung around, her eyes locking with pale blue eyes in the midst of a hard, chiseled face.
The eyes narrowed as the man with the voice let his gaze travel from her head to her feet then back again, the look measuring, weighing her worth. Black hair curled around his temples, a couple days worth of beard decorating his chin. He should have looked unkempt, but instead looked rakish, the glint in his eyes letting her know he was more than aware of his effect on the fairer sex.
“Gabriel Roarke,” he said, leaning against the door frame, crossing his arms over his chest, his mouth quirking upward ever so slightly.
She opened her mouth to say something pithy, but couldn’t get the words past the cotton in her throat. Gabriel Roarke was anything but average. Seven years in the Bureau, five of them working with Investigative Support meant that she could be pretty certain her reaction was well hidden. But the very fact that she was having it at all, didn’t sit well.
The last thing she needed was a pretty boy with attitude. “I wasn’t expecting you until this afternoon.” She carefully modulated her voice, keeping it neutral, almost bland. She’d used the exact tone on reticent offenders with great effect.
Gabriel’s left eyebrow rose, the resulting expression somewhere between amused and demonic. “I caught a ride on a cargo plane out of Tyndall.”
“There was no need to rush over. You could have at least waited until you’d had a shower.” It was her turn to measure him, and she had to admit there was nothing a good haircut and a shave wouldn’t fix.
His lips parted in a smile, his teeth white against the beard, making her think of a pirate. “I’ve been here since yesterday evening, and if you’d care to check,” he languidly lifted an arm, resting it on the doorframe, “I think you’ll find I’ve showered.”
Their eyes locked, the air hanging between them, heavy as if it were laced with cyanide. One breath and …
Behind her, Harrison cleared his throat.
She exhaled and turned gratefully toward her friend. “I’d like you to meet a colleague, Harrison Blake. He’s an expert with a computer, and I’ve asked him to join us. I hope you don’t mind?” She smiled, knowing full well the gesture was empty. There was just something off-putting about Gabriel Roarke. As if he kept the world at arm’s length, totally self-contained. A man of mystery.
Which simply meant he was a challenge. After all cracking personalities was her specialty. The darker the better. And if she could successfully profile someone like the Sinatra killer, she could surely deal with a CIA operative — no matter his baggage…
