I Spy A Demon
Urban Fantasy - New Release When twins Cecily and Calder Sizemore's parents are killed in a car accident, they're adopted by the Frost family—Gus, Mae and their sons, Marcel and Elliott. Over the years, Cecily's love for Marcel evolves into anything but sisterly. Cecily always knew something was amiss in the Frost household. Little things belied the calm, peaceful ambiance Mae did her best to portray. Calder tried to warn her things were not as they appeared, but she didn't want to believe him. When Calder begs her to leave Des Moines, start a new life away from the secrets, away from the Frosts and away from Marcel, she takes his advice and her shattered heart and moves to Minnesota. Now she's been called home for her beloved brother's funeral. There's more to the story than meets the eye. Discrepancies in how her twin died lead her back to Des Moines, and back to Marcel―the boy who stole her heart, the man whose very presence turns her blood to liquid fire. Marcel has always kept dangerous secrets, but this time, Cecily is determined to uncover the truth about the Frosts… and the truth about how Calder really died. She'll find out what really happened to her brother, even if it's her last act in life

Decision (diversion 8)
Decision (Diversion 8) is now available for preorder at Amazon, releasing March 1. Follow the law, or follow their hearts? By-the-book Bo Schollenberger's training to be the new boss at the Southeastern Narcotics Bureau. He's always been the moral compass for his partner Lucky Lucklighter, or Simon Harrison, or whatever-the-hell his name is this week. Lucky might have read the book, or parts of it, but toes the line between legal and… not so legal. A little moral elasticity lets him out-maneuver the bad guys. It's not broke, why fix it? They butt heads at work, but they're rock solid at home, where their biggest concern is when, or if, they'll become parents. Their latest case puts them in a tailspin when drugs flood a local high school and someone hands Lucky's nephew a vial of pills like they were candy. Unravelling the drug ring leads them straight into a nest of human trafficking, way outside the jurisdiction of the SNB, but no way could Bo and Lucky let the perpetrators leave Atlanta scot-free. No one gets away with harming innocents, especially family. The letter of the law says to trust the legal system, but doing the right thing might lead them outside the lines. Especially when the youngest trafficking victim lands squarely in Bo's lap.
