The job should have been easy—patrol a swank beach that serves as a backyard for Maui’s rich, kick out the riffraff, and get a tan in the process. But rent-a-cop Samantha Winters didn’t anticipate a deliciously grumpy cop, Sergeant Grady Roark, who comes down to the beach to bust her chops and instead leaves her breathless…and wondering why the one man who could help her seems determined to thwart her at every turn.

Grady is keeping secrets from Sam that have him walking the line between attraction and duty. But when Sam becomes the target of a shadowy organization, Grady will have to choose between the law and the temptation of a woman who has him breaking every rule he’s ever known.

The job should have been easy, but when the bullets start flying, Sam learns nothing is as easy as it seems when you’re a Gun for Hire.

“Why John Deacon, Sam?” Grady’s hands tightened on the steering wheel.
I threw my hands up. “It could be Jesus Christ himself signing my paycheck and I’d still be doing it for the same reasons! The job works for my family. What is your problem with John Deacon? And don’t tell me nothing—you owe me more than that.”
“Maybe I’m just jealous.” Grady stared ahead. “Like you said.”
My stomach did a loop. “Don’t use your charm on me, I’m immune—”
“You think I’m charming?”
“Hell no, I don’t! And particularly not when you’re avoiding my question.”
“But you said I had charm.” He tilted his head and gave me a long, sly look from the corner of his eyes. His teeth flashed white from that tanned face and I nearly had to fan myself when I realized I loved the feeling of Grady teasing me.
I threw my hands up in the air. “I give up!”
He wanted to talk about confusing? All I knew about Grady prior to this day was that he was six-foot-two of gorgeous and about as warm as a polar bear on the North Pole in January. And now—

Addicted – Will Recommend Gladly!

These are words authors LOVE to hear. Four out of five Bites for The Painter is a Lady from Love Bites and Silk Ties!

“Mystery and romance are woven well in this tale. I got caught up in the small-town gossip as well as the intrigue. Michael is hero worth falling for and Brenda is a heroine who knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to get it. The host of secondary characters also make for an engaging story. Fans of small-town romance or romantic suspense will enjoy this. Happy to recommend.”

Can you tell we’re pretty pumped? This is why we work so hard 🙂 . We totally lost count of how many editing rounds this story went through with our marvelous editor at Extasy Books. The plot is complex, with a lot of twists and turns (it’s suspense, after all), and he kept finding spots where readers might get confused or lost. We’re grateful he hung on through the process.

When war hero Michael Jarvis returns to his hometown on the shores of Lake Superior, he doesn’t plan to stay—he’s undercover, investigating a possible sex trafficking ring operating on the Great Lakes. But he does want to sample the pesky girl next door he always turned down—and it wouldn’t hurt if she’d clear up a few mysteries of her own along the way.

Successfully established as an interior house painter, Brenda Tower finally has her act together as a single mom—but it hangs by a thread, a secret she’ll guard with her life. The return of her youthful crush Michael Jarvis threatens to unravel everything.

Jealousy has inflamed Brett Hill’s hatred of Michael and Brenda for as long as he can remember. Revenge will be so sweet—and it will fit in perfectly with his high stakes game.

When the secrets break open, can Michael and Brenda find the courage to trust each other, or will revenge and betrayal triumph?


Michael tiptoed across the bare living room floor toward the white clad figure bouncing slightly to country music blaring on her stereo as she bobbed carefully up and down spraying beige paint along the opposite corner. The walls were decorated in differing shades of brown―wouldn’t have been his choice, but then the customer had different tastes.

When Brenda bent over to concentrate on the bottom of the wall, his concentration focused on a different bottom―hers. He grinned when he heard her singing along with Willie. Even through her thin protective mask, her voice rang clear.

She was in her element. She had rhythm. He loved to watch her when she didn’t know he was watching. She seemed happier than usual today. She still struck him as more up than down, more embracing of life than many. And today she was clearly up.

He couldn’t help but wish she was performing for him. It took every ounce of willpower not to move closer to hug her sexy bottom to his aching crotch. Damn, how sexy would she look kneeling on hands and knees naked on a bed sheet if she was this sexy garbed head to toe in painter coveralls?

He set his tool box down on the floor and coughed, trying not to startle her yet alert her to his presence.

She turned around, whipped off the painting mask, and smiled impishly. “Wondered how long you were going to take admiring my butt.”

“You knew I was here?”

“Of course I did. So who did you think I was putting on a show for? You let a draft in when you entered the kitchen.” She folded her arms across her abs. “So did you like what you saw?”

“Poetry in motion.”

She laughed softly. “Not original, but I’ll accept the compliment. So you like a tight ass?”

“If it’s yours.”
