Only two short weeks until the release of To Protect and Love, a contemporary romantic suspense box set by bestselling and award winning authors!

Today I thought I’d share an excerpt from my story, The Sheriff Meets His Match, winner of the 2015 JABBIC award!

The Sheriff Meets His Match


The Sheriff Meets his Match

When a jaded sheriff is drawn to an exasperating woman in trouble, anything can happen

Laurel Thomas has always experienced life from the outside looking in. She likes the warm welcome she’s received in Tidal Falls and wants to make a home in this friendly little town, far away from her egocentric family. But then her uncle arrives and she learns the past has a way of catching up to her.

Jack Garrett is satisfied with his uncomplicated life. He has a good job as the sheriff of his hometown, a nice home, and a beautiful teenage daughter. So why is he struggling against his attraction for the disorganized new hire at the department, Laurel Thomas? She threatens everything he’s worked so hard to avoid—like falling in love.

Can two people with enough emotional baggage to sink a ship find a way to give each other a chance, or is this match doomed to drown?



“Jack.” She inhaled, panting like she’d just run the Boston marathon. “Jack, we have to stop.”

“Hmm?” he hummed and the vibration tickled her core and made her ache with needs and desires fated to be unfulfilled.

“My uncle is in the other room.”

That got a reaction, but not the one she expected.

Instead of leaping away like a scalded cat, Jack laid his forehead alongside hers and took a few cleansing breaths before leaning back.

“You don’t know how relieved I am to hear that.” And then he saw her puzzled frown. “I heard a male voice when I arrived and assumed you had a man here.”

As if that should explain everything.

Laurel scowled. “I do have a man here. I just told you that.”

Now he was getting irritated also. He stood straight and glared into her upturned face. “Don’t be an idiot,” he said.

She gasped in outrage.

“I was talking about a lover, of course,” he growled.

What the h-e-double-l did that mean, of course?


You can’t live with them, and you can’t shoot ’em. It’s a felony.
