On the trail of a killer, and with her old flame back in her life, Detective Alicia Knowles is forced to face the past as she tries to make decisions about her future…

Now more dangerous, she moves through the darkness of her once sunny world, unsure what to do with her pent up feelings of fear and anger.
Even her new boss, Cole Douglass, makes her feel out of control. One night, years ago, he made her feel things she’d never felt with any other man. This time it can only be business between them.
With her latest case, however, temperatures flare.
Their passion is rekindled as the search is on for a missing child and a murderer on the run. Can Alicia protect her heart from the most dangerous power of all…love?

If only she’d never left him the next morning….
Had never decided not to leave her number….
Things might be different. For them both.
But at the time, she hadn’t been ready to grab onto forever yet. Deep down, she knew he’d want absolutely everything. But they’d lived in different cities then. And she hadn’t been ready.
She’d been a woman who wanted everything he had to offer—home, garden, passion, and family. Within Cole’s arms, she’d find an endless supply of heated moments every day. But he’d scared her, how much he made her feel. And how quickly the desire to be with him forever had risen within her.
And now, she was tainted. Life had intervened and shown her exactly how evil it could be. She couldn’t risk the dangers that came with her job, of not knowing if one day it would all end.
At the touch of his hands on her shoulders, Alicia opened her eyes to see their reflection in the glass. She committed the image to memory. She’d hold onto it for the rest of her life and remember it in the years to come, when she was alone and aching, that she’d held a piece of bliss for just a few moments.
She turned around. Their chests brushed, and she gave him a half-smile. “I know Hannah might not blame me, but I do. A few more moments, it’s all we would have needed. I’d change it if I could.” When Cole opened his mouth, she placed her fingers on his lips to silence him. “I can’t, but I vow to do whatever it takes to catch this son-of-a-bitch.”
Alicia tried to convey the sincerity of her promise as she stared into his eyes. For Hannah, and this man, she’d do whatever she could to bring peace to their family once more.
“I know you would. But you can’t carry the weight of the world on your shoulders. We’ll get him.” He raised his hand to her cheek and pushed back a strand of hair that had fallen over her face. Her breath quickened at the light touch. Her body stilled.
The air crackled with electricity. She was sure he could feel it, too; the tension rolled off his body like waves in the ocean. To walk away would be the best thing to do, but for the life of her, Alicia couldn’t get her feet to move.
“You know what, Ali?” His voice was soft and powerfully seductive. “You know what I remember most about our night together?”
Alicia’s hand clasped his wrist, below where his fingers rested lightly on her cheek. She wanted to fall into his arms, burn beneath his touch again. They’d never talked about it and she was curious to know what he remembered.
She remembered it all.
Every touch and sigh. She basked in the memory of every kiss and every pleasure.
Through many a cold and lonely night, she cherished the memories of Cole’s hard body pressed against hers, pushing her against the mattress—and the wall and the bathroom counter. She marveled at how he’d made her feel like more of a woman in one night than she’d felt in all her adult years.
Her voice hoarse and scratchy, she whispered, “What do you remember?”
“Our fire.”
When his mouth claimed hers, her body ignited with long-repressed emotions. Hunger, mind-blowing hunger, rattled through her. It was so hard to breathe.

2 Days Til Awakenings Release!!

Just 2 days until Awakenings releases! This is the 2nd book in my “In the Arms of the Law” series. 
Though this story deals with the aftermath for Alicia (with what happened to her in book 1, Illusions), there is also another central point of the story that broke my heart.
Roger — the young boy missing, who spoke to me a lot through the story. He had scenes as well that stood out. 
This is a never before seen excerpt. 
Hope you enjoy!!

Shivers. Shakes.
Fear swept up along Roger’s spine, causing his body to twitch. He lay on his side and fought sleep. The batteries had died on one of the flashlights not too long ago. Wanting to save the power on the second one, he only used it when he had to. He’d begun to hate the dark. Time didn’t matter anymore. It already felt like he’d been huddled in his hideaway for months.
Tired, hungry, and needing to use the bathroom again, he’d sneaked through his apartment a couple times before, only when he was sure he heard nothing, sure it was safe. After he used the bathroom, he’d grabbed a couple more water bottles and crackers from the kitchen as fast as he could. He wished he’d found more, but stored what he could find.
Scared, more terrified than any other time in his life, Roger couldn’t stop the nerves that seized his body.
His mother was dead, he was all alone now, and would be next if his so-called father got his hands on him.
Roger had seen him hurt his mother over and over again, but he never thought he’d kill her. Even after living through sleepless nights of his father’s loud voice, and knowing he didn’t really care about them, Roger had never thought he’d make either of them disappear.
His hands, cupped under his chin, coiled into fists. The second time he’d left safety and grabbed more water—even though it was the last thing he needed or he’d have to make more bathroom trips—he’d noticed a small, white card on the kitchen table.
It had been too dark for him to see what was on it, but the white of it stood out and drew his attention. He couldn’t turn on any lights in case he was seen, but he’d snatched it, only to realize there were two. Clutching them and his water, he made his way back to his cubbyhole. Once there, he’d immediately grabbed the still-usable flashlight and read the cards.

Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend! 

Thank you to everyone for stopping by in previous weeks and commenting. I enjoy reading everyone’s thoughts each week. 


This week, a six from AWAKENINGS, which releases Wednesday Sept 12th!! Just a couple more days.




Bit of set up– Detective Alicia Knowles has crossed the line while on duty. Her partner does what he has to do. The Chief of Police is not happy…
  

“I’ll handle things from here.”
As the phone rang at the other end of the line, Cole watched Ethan leave his office and prayed he could keep himself from killing Alicia Knowles with his bare hands. He was in a tough spot as her boss and as someone who cared about her. But he had to stop the downhill slide her life was on before she got herself killed.
He’d see to it that she was protected.
Even from herself.
