Limestone County

The measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of peace, but where he stands in moments of tumult.

Jim Lane is pulling himself together after burn-out from a rescue gone bad. A peaceful life on Stockton Lake seems just the ticket. 

An explosion of anger.

Jolted by betrayal, he survives an attempt on his life only to be drawn into a bloody turf war with the Russian mob. County sheriff Rita Morris knows his history and isn’t buying his explanation.

Unreasoning fear. 

Rita lost her husband to a random shooting. Unsure if she’s ready to move on, she can’t deny the connection she feels with Jim. It’s a complication, but the pair form a united front with a simple message for the Russians. Get out of Limestone County!

A country boy.

Jim knows he can’t lose this fight. When the first bullet flies he steps into a whirlwind of twists and turns, new love, and old friends that hurtle to the end with an ally he never expects... and a blood debt that will keep him looking over his shoulder for the rest of his life.

In this world, there ARE three kinds of people—sheep, wolves... and shepherds.

Mason Law works for the Army, specializing in rescuing people from out-of-the-way places. When he walks out of the jungle with his latest charges in tow, he is greeted with the news that his wife has died of a strange illness. He is immediately transported back to Missouri. Once he’s home he finds the world, as he used to know it, is unraveling. With no fuel for transport, no electricity, and most importantly, very little food, he can see society coming apart right before his eyes.

With barely time to get his wits about him, General Slade requests that Mason extract his daughter from Springfield and take her to Sanctuary, a safe house built on Lake Stockton. Since Mason owes the general a solid, he accepts the mission. He resolves to complete the task, or die trying.

Alice Slade is an Army combat veteran, battlefield nurse, and emergency room nurse. Short, blond, busty, and irreverent, she is used to getting her way—or all hell breaks loose until she does. When they meet, sparks fly, and the game is on.

In the course of rescuing the young lady and leading her to safety, Mason confronts rogue military units and hordes of starving people out of their minds with fear. Thrown into this mix, he has to endure instant lust turning into near-instant love, betrayal at a most unexpected time, and reconciliation. It may have been easier to just eat a bullet.

The Shepherd is an action-packed thrill ride that starts fast and hurtles to a breakneck finish. Buckle up and hang on for your life.
