He’s not giving up his family without a fight

James Calhoun has never been able to resist Mara Tyler, or her knack for mischief. Her reputation as a reckless teenager drove Mara from their hometown. So Slippery Rock is the last place James ever expected to see her, and Mara’s timing couldn’t be worse. With the upcoming election for sheriff, she threatens the squeaky-clean image James needs to win. Because Mara has brought with her the result of their steamy affair: his two-year-old son, Zeke. After the initial shock, James is determined to have both his family and career. He just needs to convince Mara that her home is where it’s always been. With him.

James’ Tips for Reforming a Rebel

 

Loving a rebel is a hard thing, especially when you’re neck-deep in sheriff duties. And, you know, when your family has been the law in your town for longer than you can remember. People have expectations. And thoughts. And expectations.

 

I really hate the expectations part. Like, who really cares what CarlaAnn at the grocery store thinks? I sure as hell don’t, but it seems like a lot of other people do. People who have no business inserting their thoughts and expectations in my life. That’s life in a small town for you.

 

The thing is, I love living in my small town. It’s a part of me like nothing else has ever been. There is a sense of community, a sense of togetherness that you just don’t get in other places.

 

Take Mara Tyler. She’s a rebel, always has been. She walks to the beat of her own drummer, as the saying goes. She has a code, she has her struggles, but she’s just trying to be a good daughter, sister, mother and, if I have any say in it, lover. She’s good at what she does, and what she does is protect people. Being a computer programmer for a security company is a big deal. I might protect the people of Slippery Rock, but because of Mara, people in cities all over the United States are safer.

 

So, for whatever it’s worth, my advice for reforming a rebel?

 

Don’t. People need to be who they are, and as long as who they aren’t isn’t hurting anyone else, let the rebel be. Chances are, that rebel is doing more good in the world than you know.

 

—Kristina

This isn’t the man she married… 

Jenny Buchanan never considered what “for better or for worse” meant when she married Adam Buchanan at nineteen.

Now he’s a stranger to his family…and love won’t be enough to bring him back.

It’s a #book birthday! Celebrate with @marsharwest July 18-20 #99cents #Suspense

Thanks for helping me celebrate the 4th anniversary of the publication of my first book, VERMONT ESCAPE. To make this fun for everyone, I’m offering VERMONT ESCAPE & TRUTH BE TOLD for 99 Cents each on Amazon for three days: Tuesday, July 18; Wednesday, July 19 (the actual date of publication of VE), and Thursday, July 20.

Four years ago, July 19 was a Friday night and it also happens to be the birthday of one of my SsIL. It was a BIG Birthday. He had a great BD party with lots of friends and family at a Sushi Restaurant (which fortunately also served other options.) He was so sweet to announce that his MIL’s first book was released that day. I was touched by his thoughtfulness.

On this July 19, we’ll all be going to the Championship Swim meet to cheer on his almost 6-year-old daughter. I’m going to imagine all those people at the meet are cheering for me and my books. Please spread the word. Limited time. Great deal.

Below are the blurb & links for both books.

Looking forward to a peaceful Christmas visit with her Fort Worth family, Meg Bourland is shocked to discover someone is blackmailing her father. When he rebuffs her offer to help, the Atlanta SWAT team member enlists her LA police officer brother and his former partner to uncover the truth. She fights her attraction for Scott McClaine and the immediate tug to her heart caused by his sacrifice. Her life is in Atlanta, and his is in California.

 

Scott McClaine, medically retired homicide detective, came to Fort Worth to recuperate from life-threatening bullet wounds he received saving the life of Meg’s brother. Hard enough to accept his new physical limitations, but they make him unacceptable for strong Meg. Regardless, he commits himself to helping her stop the blackmailer. Working closely with her, a bond forms. Could she feel the same?

 

In the search for truth, they uncover pieces of the puzzle, which threaten to ruin her father’s career as mayor and destroy the family she holds dear. Will Meg and Scott find their way through the maze of family secretes? Will they find the strength to make the sacrifices required for real love before the blackmailer makes good on threats to kill?
