Today is the release day for my two first Love & Murder books – Truth About Love & Murder and Rules of Love & Murder, both stand-alone books. Thanks to Delilah for letting me talk about them here. I want to shout about it everywhere. Everything I love about books is in these two: Strong, smart, and sexy heroines and heroes. Tons of emotion, yet a plot that keeps moving. And these books have a military connection, mystery, suspense, romance, and humor. An early reader compared one of my characters in my second release, Rules of Love & Murder, to Dexter (from the TV show Dexter – police forensics expert moonlights as a serial killer).
Here’s the info about Truth About Love & Murder:
The truth is that life is uncertain.
Meg Quinn hasn’t been to war, but her father has, and it changed their lives for the worse — and for the better. Now she has a sharp tongue and a mind to match … and she doesn’t trust easily. The best person she knows is losing a fight with death, and Meg is guardian of her friend’s seven-year-old son.
Easy MacLean, the co-guardian, is Meg’s dying friend’s brother. The former Marine has been hibernating in his Colorado mountain home, and Meg lets him know that he needs to be by his sister’s side in Milwaukee now.
Easy is attracted to his sister’s clever friend, but life gets complicated when he gets involved in a search for a missing veteran. After living alone with his rescue dog for so long, Easy and his dog are now sharing a home with a beautiful woman, a boy, and a cat. Even as he watches his sister die a little each day, he’s finding out the truth about life and love … and murder.
Here’s the skinny on Rules of Love & Murder:
Some days life is wonderful. Other days it’s murder.
Former Marine August Reyes is home for good, haunted by images of bloodshed. He meets up again with Elle Styles, the girl he’s never been able to forget.
When August was eight and Elle was six, she changed his and his mother’s lives before she and her widowed mother left the Wisconsin vacation town. Twenty-two years later, she’s returned to Trouble Bay with her four-year-old daughter, but they’re only staying for six weeks. Elle and August are different people now. He sees life through darkness, and she sees it through light. And light and dark don’t mix well.
Someone else was changed by Elle when she was young. A woman who lives by her own rules. Rule Nr. Two—Don’t let anyone cheat you—is in play now. And this might lead to Rule Nr. Three: Don’t kill anyone … unless killing is necessary.
The town of Trouble Bay is about to live up to its name. Life there can be murder… Even when you’re falling in love.
