~An unsolved murder, a secret code, a romantic dilemma. All in the day's work for a redneck P.I. with an attitude.~
Small town redneck P.I. Twila Taunton is hell-bent on solving her mother's murder. Accompanied by her canine companion, she follows the trail of a cold murder case and discovers a secret code on the skeletal remains--Cyder Hill 1952.
Sexy cowboy Tanner Ferrano makes a concerted effort to seduce her and drive a wedge into her relationship with long distance boyfriend, hunky Harland O'Connor.
When hard-drinking, weed-smoking Great Aunt Essie cracks the code, they head to a haunted mansion in the dead of night, mindful of the man-eating wild boars that patrol the grounds…
Twila is not certain whether she'll succumb to Tanner's advances or end up rolling in the hay with Harland. She does know one thing, though. It's gonna be wild and passionate.
~Twila's a redneck, and proud of it. Harland's a P.I. with a target on his back. What a pair!~
Twila Taunton doesn't expect to find herself ducking bullets when she invites hunky P.I. Harland O'Connor to the company picnic. Pretty soon she forgets she's vowed never to allow a man into her life again. Even worse, his equally hunky twin brother, Horton, makes her forget she's allergic to cops. With her cocky small-town Southern attitude, Twila steps in to pinch-hit for Harland while he recovers from the shooting. Her lack of city- sophistication and disregard for political correctness help her solve some tough cases. And then someone tries to blow her up. She and Harland and Horton are soon caught in a dizzy, dangerous tangle that could cost them more than their lives.
~Two kids from Texas--a sizzling romance--one stupid mistake. Intrigue, terror, and undying love culminate in the vast African wilderness.~
Trent lied about her age. Hal was convicted of statutory rape. Two lives, ruined. Despite a brutal existence in prison, a desperate escape and a chance for a new life in Africa, Hal never forgets his first love. If only there were some way he could return home, return to Trent. Never, warns his wise friend Demetrio, reminding Hal that they are escaped felons, and to be caught is to go back to prison.
Trent can't forget Hal, nor can she forgive herself for his fate. The future holds no promise, and finally she seeks solace and expiation in a cult calling itself The Church of Hallowed Revelation. Her parents seek to have her deprogrammed, but instead lose her to ruthless kidnappers, who hold her in their African headquarters until her ransom is paid. Seeking a hostage held by a quasi-military faction, Hal and Demetrio head into the wilderness. At the end of their quest is violence, death, and--just perhaps--another chance for Hal and Trent.
