Here Comes the Sun Available Today!

Welcome back to Butler!

Wade Abbott is one and done.

One look, one conversation, one weekend, and he knows who he wants.

Except, Mia Simpson is not free to return his affection. In fact, he suspects she’s in an abusive marriage, but she never confirms that, and he has no choice but to mind his own business where she’s concerned.

Two years after they first met and a year after he last heard from her, Mia shows up half-frozen, bruised and beaten on his doorstep, needing something only Wade can provide.

He’s determined to make it work, no matter the cost. Grab the latest in a series you will fall in love with!

Bloggers love Wade and Mia’s story!

“I was captivated by Wade and Mia’s story. Returning to Butler, VT and the Abbott family is like coming home. This series is everything I love about a family saga.” —Denise (Shh Mom’s Reading®)

“HERE COMES THE SUN is a revealing story line with a twist that I didn’t see coming. The premise is entertaining and intriguing; the romance is passionate and compelling; the characters are plenty, colorful and dynamic.” —Sandy (The Reading Cafe)

“This newest installment in the Butler, Vermont series is both sweet and sexy, dangerous and comforting. I loved the addition of a bit of suspense with Mia’s background and the tension that came with the danger she was facing.” —Rachel (Reviews by Tammy and Kim)

Fatal Chaos, Book 12 in the Fatal Series, Out Next Month

Sam and Nick are back! Preorder now and read on Feb. 27.

First the calm. Then the storm…

Escaping D.C. during the dog days of summer is one of the smartest moves Washington Metro Police Lieutenant Samantha Holland ever made. Beach walks aren’t quite as romantic with the Secret Service in tow, but Sam and her husband, Vice President Nick Cappuano, cherish the chance to recharge and reconnect—especially with a scandal swirling around the administration.

No sooner are they back home than a fatal drive-by shooting sets the city on edge. The teenage victim is barely older than Sam and Nick’s son, Scotty. As more deaths follow, Sam and her team play beat the clock to stop the ruthless killers. With Nick facing his greatest challenge—one that could drastically change all their lives and even end Sam’s career—will the mounting pressure deepen or damage their bond?
