Walking the line between danger and love!

Held hostage at knifepoint...

As a nurse in the emergency department, Alanna Finnegan is accustomed to taking care of patients with gunshot wounds. But when she is taken hostage with a scalpel blade at her throat, she knows the ruthless gang member won't hesitate to kill her. Police officer Reed Carmichael doesn't hesitate to shoot and kill the man holding her captive and she is relieved the nightmare is over. Except, it isn't.

Reed is placed on administrative leave after shooting Ivan "Ice" Garcia, only to find his rookie partner, murdered. When he takes Alanna home, danger continues to stalk their every move. Nothing makes sense, especially members of a gang having the resources to find them. Reed and Alanna can only trust the Finnegan siblings to keep them safe. With a price on Reed's head, time is running out. Will they uncover the truth in time to celebrate their new found love?

Laura Scott's Bio

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!
