To Serve and Protect Was Never More Personal

Congratulations to "Willa", the winner in Margo's giveaway. Please contact JUST ROMANTIC SUSPENSE to claim your prize!

BROTHERS IN BLUE. The romantic suspense series features four heroes who met at the police academy to become lifelong friends. The Dropout, the Straight Arrow, the Movie Star and the Maverick. All share a passion to serve and protect, each in their own unique way.

Today, I’m proud to present ON THE MAKE – The Movie Star’s story

Will a tragic past sabotage future dreams?

When it comes to husbands, Madison Clark's track record is the thing of nightmares. Twice widowed, she's given up on happily ever after. Still, with two young boys to raise, a stable family life is all she really desires. Cop turned movie idol, Adam Pride longs for a family of his own, not the irresistible woman and her two sons who are quickly working their way into his heart. But when Madison unknowingly lands in a desperate killer's cross-hairs, Adam puts his career—and life—on the line to save her. Can he protect her from a deadly threat and win her heart? Or will a shocking revelation destroy their fragile love?

Every writer loves a good review and I’m no exception. Take a look at what one reader had to say about ON THE MAKE:

She’s buried two husbands. . .now someone is out to bury her.

On The Make, Book 3 of the Brothers in Blue series, by author Margo Hoornstra, a 2020 contemporary romantic suspense released by the Wild Rose Press.

If the intriguing tagline and the glorious cover art, followed by the teaser scene on page 1 of this exciting book, doesn't grab you, nothing will.

Fresh off the heels of burying her second husband inside three short years, attorney turned event planner Madison Clark is hanging on by her toenails, trying to raise two normal but rebellious boys in a town that reveres her real estate magnet husband because of all he did for the community. Only. . . behind closed doors Joe Clark wasn’t the epitome of terrific husbands and dynamite fathers. That was the guy she buried three years ago.

So guess who barges into her life, larger in life and ten times more attractive than what he shows on the big screen he currently rules but Adam Pride, former cop turned accidental action movie star, and superhero to every adolescent male on the planet.

Neither is looking for forever; neither believes they’d win any prizes for Partner of the Year. Yet. . . each is there when the other needs a shoulder, helping hand, or moments of sanity in the middle of chaos and danger.

Margo Hoornstra gets better and better with each book. She rips emotion out her characters, then plasters it all over each turnable page. Do not miss the latest in her fascinating Brothers in Blue series. It’s a beauty!!

On a scale of 1-5, On The Make deserves a 6.

Thank you so much, Kat.

Here’s the teaser scene she mentions on page one.

“Let us pray.”

Madison Clark dutifully lowered her head, along with scores of other mourners, in the main hall of the Guards Park Convention Center. Though she did so more for show than reverence. Known for its panoramic views of the magnificent Rocky Mountains, the center was perhaps an odd place to hold a funeral. Then again, nothing about her marriage to Joe, short as it was, could be construed as normal. Why should anything change now that he was gone?

And remember, Books 1 and 2, ON THE SURFACE and ON THE FORCE are also available.

ON THE SURFACE – The Dropout’s story

He sought vengeance only to discover love.


ON THE FORCE – The Straight Arrow’s story

Losing her job was nothing compared to the prospect of losing her life.

ON THE MOVE – The Maverick’s story – Is yet to come.

This disgraced cop will do anything to clear his name, short of murder.
