Bluebonnet Ballerina

Bluebonnet Ballerina, The Amazing Gracie Trilogy, Book 2, is now available in both Kindle and paperback editions!

The pre-order Kindle price of 99 cents will be available only until Monday night, July 9.


     Gracie Hofner returns, and chaos reigns—including a couple of ghosts trying to save their granddaughter. But as Gracie dances from problem to problem, she’s unaware the music has been orchestrated into a murderous symphony.
     When a different melody reaches Gracie’s ears from a guitar played by the new tenant living in her garage apartment, her tension vanishes. She listens unseen, cocooned in the shadows on her patio, and wonders who he’s longing for—and how it would feel for a man to crave her that much.
     She can’t dwell on those thoughts, however. Problems of murder and missing prisoners abound. To say nothing of the ghosts. No one ever said being a law enforcement consultant would be easy.

Jalapeno Cupcake Wench, The Amazing Gracie Trilogy, Book 1, is currently listed in a giveaway at Goodreads. 20 Kindle copies will be given away after the giveaway ends on Wednesday, July 11.

If you haven’t read this book, sign up for the giveaway today. And good luck!

Once upon a time there was a jewel thief

By the end of a long evening working as a special set of eyes for the presidential security detail, all Kat Marengo wants is to kick off her shoes and stash two not-really-stolen rings in a secure spot. Plus, maybe sleep with Dave Krizak. No, make that definitely sleep with Dave Krizak. The next morning, she wishes her new top priorities were so simple.

As an operative for a covert agency buried in the depths of the Department of Homeland Security, Kat is asked to participate in a matter of life or death–locate a kidnapped girl believed to be held in Corpus Christi, Texas. Since the person doing the asking is the wife of the president and the girl is the daughter of her dearest friend, it’s hard to say no.

Kat and Dave quickly learn the real stakes are higher than they or the first lady believed and will require more than any of them bargained for.

The kicker? They have twenty-four hours to find the girl–or the matter of life or death will become more than a possibility.
