Congratulations to "Linda S.", the winner in Sharon's giveaway. Please contact JUST ROMANTIC SUSPENSE to claim your prize. Thank you to all who participated!

I’m super excited about my new series – Atlanta’s Finest! They are a group of security specialists who are former police officers, detectives, or have other law enforcement backgrounds.

Up now, book 2 – INDEBTED. This is Lazarus (Laz) and Journey’s story! I try not to pick favorites when it comes to my characters, but I must say, I had a blast writing Laz’s character! Deep down he’s a good guy, but as a detective, he skates on the edge of the law when it comes to getting the bad guys off the street. There’s only one person who can seem to tame this bad-boy. Journey Ramsey.

Here’s their story.

Even when he does good, he’s bad…

Detective Lazarus Dimas doesn’t play by the rules. On the streets, he’s a force to be reckoned with, a dangerous man with a badge and a gun. But he does have a soft spot—the sexy assistant district attorney Journey Ramsey. There is something about the woman he can’t shake. She’s irresistible and off-limits. At least that’s what he keeps telling himself, but one kiss leads to others and well…so much for limits. 

Journey plays by the rules, normally. But she can’t deny the sexual tension that sparks whenever Laz is near, even when he puts her professional integrity at risk. Laz is complex. The type of man fathers warn their daughters about. Yet, there’s a gentle, vulnerable side to him that he lets no one see except her, and she can’t resist him. 

Can Laz prove he’s the man for Journey before a reopened case exposes his true colors? Or will the danger they face show that the love they share knows no boundaries?

Journey’s eyebrows lifted in shock. “You saw what happened?” she asked just above a whisper.
“Yeah,” Laz said absently, examining her arm. He had almost lost his shit when he saw Gabe grab her. The pained expression on her face had been like a knife piercing his heart. The only thing that stopped him from going to her aid was that she had gotten the situation under control with a move that had surprised him. Besides that, he knew if he had approached them, he’d be in jail for assault.
Still looking at her arm, Laz froze. “That bastard grabbed you hard enough to leave a bruise?” He tried bridling the rage in his voice, but even he recognized the hardness in his tone. His anger spiked when he touched the darkened area and she flinched.
Gabriel Hall had just earned himself an ass whoopin’.
“It’s fine, Laz.” Journey eased her arm out of his grasp. “I bruise easily, and I can handle Gabe.”
“You shouldn’t have to handle him, Journey. He shouldn’t have had his hands on you!”
“Laz, I’m not helpless. I handled the situation and it’s done. So drop it! And why are you so upset?”
“Dammit, Journey! That fuc—” He stopped himself, trying to rein in the rage hurling through his body. “I don’t want any man’s hands on you!”

  1. This series sounds awesome, I would love to win a Kindle version...thank you for the chance

  2. Hope you had a good fourth of July. This type of series with capable, former military or law enforcement individuals is a favorite of mine. It brings many strong, multi-talented people together and that in itself produces tension and excitement. Best of luck for the success of the series.
