Risking their hearts and their lives while protecting the innocent . . .
Sealed with Courage - Will they find the kidnapped boy in time?
Sign language teacher Aubrey Clark feels responsible when ten-year-old Lucas goes missing. She's determined to find her deaf student and knows more than she should from reading the lips of the man involved in the boy's disappearance. Now she's in the killer's crosshairs too. Aubrey has little choice but to accept Navy SEAL Mason Gray's protection, grateful for his help in searching for Lucas.
Mason's last op as a Navy SEAL had gone sideways, leaving him deaf in one ear and hard of hearing in the other. But he's not going to let his handicap prevent him and his K9 scent tracker, Bravo, from rescuing a deaf child. Mason has never balked at putting his life on the line for his country or to ensure the safety of women and children. But risking his heart? That wasn't supposed to be part of the plan . . .
Sealed with Honor - Will he find the assailant before it's too late?
Former Navy SEAL Kaleb Tyson follows Charlotte Cambridge to the shelter for abused women and children to obtain information on Ava Rampart, their teammate's missing sister. Before he can do anything, a gunman opens fire on the front door. After the gunman slips away, Kaleb is left with little choice but to stick close to provide security for the women and children living there. Not that he doesn't think Charlotte Cambridge, a gun-toting pixie, couldn't handle herself because she made it clear she could.
It has been years since Charlotte trusted a man to protect her, so there is no way she is going to let Kaleb Tyson inside the shelter. But when Kaleb and Sierra, his black lab, are still standing guard outside the following morning, she's forced to reconsider. As the gunman keeps coming after them, it's clear trusting Kaleb is necessary to survive. Kaleb is the most honorable man she's ever known. Making her yearn for something she cannot have---a family of her own.
Sealed with Justice - Will they survive long enough to uncover the truth?
Retired Navy SEAL Hudson Foster returns to his hometown in Idaho minus one eye and suffering debilitating migraine headaches, thanks to his last op. His faithful German shepherd, Echo, keeps him grounded. When he unexpectedly runs into his former crush, Kendra Pickett, he learns she's been poking her nose into a twenty-year-old murder, one in which he was the prime suspect. When the bullets start to fly, he's grateful to save her, even though he is certain the killer is determined to tie up loose ends.
Critical care nurse Kendra Pickett has always believed Hudson Foster guilty of murdering her best friend, Zoey, but when shots are fired, Hudson saves her life. As the attempts against her escalate, she realizes someone else is responsible. Teaming up with Hudson is the best way to uncover the truth, even if that means putting her heart in his hands. But can they stay alive long enough to find the real killer?
I’m often asked when I started writing and I have to be honest, I can’t remember when I wasn’t writing. I loved books as a kid and like many authors I ran out of stories that I liked to read so I began to make up my own. I wrote my first teen novel when I was thirteen and my first romance when I was seventeen. Of course neither manuscript was very good, but I never gave up and after I finished Graduate school I decided to take some time for myself and get back to my writing. I’m so glad I did! I grew up reading faith based books by Grace Livingston Hill so writing for Love Inspired Suspense is a dream come true. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them. I currently live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with my husband of thirty-three years. My daughter Nicole is married to a wonderful man named Mike and my son Jonathan is a Registered Nurse at the same hospital where I work. I’m so blessed to have such a wonderful family. I’m a dog lover and had to put my Westie named Mac down a year or so ago. I still miss him but now have a chance to dog sit for my sisters and brother. I try to incorporate pets in my my stories as much as possible In May of 2017 I was the humble recipient of the Wisconsin Romance Writers Lifetime Achievement Award. I’m blessed to be a member of such an amazing group!
