Shannon's Law

Emma Calin

A sexy aristocrat. A wild-child inner city cop. A crime wave of passion.

A steamy romance novel introducing a sassy female police officer who locks up criminals and always gets her man.

The second book in the "Passion Patrol" series featuring hot cops, hot crime and hot romance. Following the success of "Knockout!" the drama in "Shannon's Law" revolves around another feisty female cop - Shannon Aguerri.

Moved out from the city after one-too-many maverick missions, Shannon discovers there's more going on in the sleepy country village
than meets the eye. The son of a local aristocrat arouses suspicion of drug crime activity... but his widower father arouses more animal instincts!

Could she really mix with the British royal family? Can she risk her heart and career on yet another high risk unauthorised investigation?
Can she get justice for an innocent boy? Dare a kid from the gutter dream of being a countess?

Shannon's Law, the action romance novel of 2014.

Wild child inner city cop Shannon Aguerri walks a dangerous line between her methods and justice. When the bosses lose their nerve,
she is transferred to green pastures to play out the role of a routine village cop. In Fleetworth-Green she encounters signs of people and drug trafficking and homes in on serious millionaire criminals.

As a loner she has attracted men but nothing has stuck. When she meets Spencer, the hunky and widowed Earl of Bloxington, there is an immediate rapport between them. Their social differences mean nothing to their passion and need. Already in the mix is an upper class female rival who has long plotted her way into the Earl's bed. The jealousy is an evil shade of green and the anger is a violent scarlet.

Often inhibited by a sense of duty and honour, Spencer is slow to reveal his feelings. When Shannon confronts him with the need to choose between her word and that of her rival, he does not immediately support her.

All the same, when they are forced together to carry out a desperate rescue mission, their love is stronger than everything ranged against them.

Please note: This book contains joyful explicit sex between adults in a consenting relationship. There is also strong language in high-stress police confrontations with criminals.

Myth. Monster. Mine.

Spectre

I wasn’t even a man when I took a life for the first time, although you couldn’t say I was a child. If I’d ever had a childhood, it hadn’t lasted long. My father, may he rot in hell, had seen to that. I took his life as well and that, too, happened before I was old enough to be considered a grown man.
I never regretted it for a second.

That path almost led to my own grave, and would have, if I hadn’t stumbled across somebody who was as different from my father as day was from night. Sarge had seen the monster lurking inside, so he took control, gave me guidelines, rules, so I wouldn’t be the monster my father had planned.

It worked. I restrained the worst of my rage and honed the skills that had been drilled into me—theft, stealth... assassination. The broken child ceased to exist and I became Spectre, an assassin spoken of in whispers, hired to take out the worst of humanity.

Then I was sent to kill her...and my world came to a screeching halt.

Tia

It’s taken a long time, but I finally had a nice, steady routine. I stopped trying to conform to the neurotypicals of the world and found my own normal.

Normal went out the window when I walked into my kitchen and found a strange (hot), dangerous looking (so fricking hot) man drugging my new dog.

It probably wasn’t the smartest thing to leap at him like a banshee and attack, but that’s what I did.

When my attempt to wreck the vehicle was averted, my kidnapper didn’t hurt or threaten me. In fact, he told me he wanted to protect me.

This (hot) guy had to be crazy. But if he was crazy, what did that make me? Because I believed him. More, I found myself seeing something beyond the rigid, blank mask he wore. He kept trying to push me away, but I couldn’t seem to keep my distance.

He calls himself a monster...but when I look at him, that isn’t what I see. I just see him...and I know he’s meant to be mine.

Warning: This isn’t a snuggly, comfy read. The male MC is a hired killer, while the heroine is neuro-atypical. Some dark material is involved—the hero kidnaps the heroine. There’s also violence when he goes on a rampage against those who put a contract on her. Also references of abuse (not against the heroine). Also very graphic, erotic scenes with minor bondage play.
A Mafia conspiracy. A female undercover cop. A honed and fit suspect - international boxer and billionaire playboy, Freddie La Salle.

Interpol cop, Anna Leyton, spirals down into a hopeless vortex of sexual and emotional turmoil as she fights to keep her professional cool in her latest assignment. When the charismatic Freddie turns on his charm and seduces her, passion takes control. The action flies from London to Paris, to California and New York - but just who is deceiving who in this fast moving ride across continents?

A high stakes gambling syndicate is pulling the strings. There's already a boxing referee dead in a river and millions of dollars placed on Freddie's next fight. Anna has to decide what really motivates this art loving prize-bull boxer. Can she fake it? Can she nail the gangsters before her cover is blown?

In a tense story of forbidden erotic love, can a relationship founded on deceit survive? When abandoned by her bosses, vigilante justice is her only option. Can she prove her lover's innocence? Can she escape with her man or even her life? The power of love and trust stands against greed and crime as conflicting forces grapple for that knockout punch.

'Combat' a fast moving novel from Emma Calin's Passion Patrol Series, combining thrilling crime mystery with steamy suspense romance. Whilst characters appear across the series, each story can be read as a stand alone adventure. No cliffhangers. HEA endings.

If you enjoy James Patterson, Catherine Coulter, Nora Roberts and Kendra Elliot you'll love a series that combines all of their best traits in fast-paced, pulse-pounding roller-coaster adventures full of passionate romance, deception, danger and love.

New for summer 2019.... 'POWER'
A special fiftieth anniversary edition of Kurt Vonnegut’s masterpiece, “a desperate, painfully honest attempt to confront the monstrous crimes of the twentieth century” (Time), featuring a new introduction by Kevin Powers, author of the National Book Award finalist The Yellow Birds
 
Selected by the Modern Library as one of the 100 best novels of all time
 
Slaughterhouse-Five, an American classic, is one of the world’s great antiwar books. Centering on the infamous World War II firebombing of Dresden, the novel is the result of what Kurt Vonnegut described as a twenty-three-year struggle to write a book about what he had witnessed as an American prisoner of war. It combines historical fiction, science fiction, autobiography, and satire in an account of the life of Billy Pilgrim, a barber’s son turned draftee turned optometrist turned alien abductee. As Vonnegut had, Billy experiences the destruction of Dresden as a POW. Unlike Vonnegut, he experiences time travel, or coming “unstuck in time.”

An instant bestseller, Slaughterhouse-Five made Kurt Vonnegut a cult hero in American literature, a reputation that only strengthened over time, despite his being banned and censored by some libraries and schools for content and language. But it was precisely those elements of Vonnegut’s writing—the political edginess, the genre-bending inventiveness, the frank violence, the transgressive wit—that have inspired generations of readers not just to look differently at the world around them but to find the confidence to say something about it. Authors as wide-ranging as Norman Mailer, John Irving, Michael Crichton, Tim O’Brien, Margaret Atwood, Elizabeth Strout, David Sedaris, Jennifer Egan, and J. K. Rowling have all found inspiration in Vonnegut’s words. Jonathan Safran Foer has described Vonnegut as “the kind of writer who made people—young people especially—want to write.” George Saunders has declared Vonnegut to be “the great, urgent, passionate American writer of our century, who offers us . . . a model of the kind of compassionate thinking that might yet save us from ourselves.”

Fifty years after its initial publication at the height of the Vietnam War, Vonnegut's portrayal of political disillusionment, PTSD, and postwar anxiety feels as relevant, darkly humorous, and profoundly affecting as ever, an enduring beacon through our own era’s uncertainties.

“Poignant and hilarious, threaded with compassion and, behind everything, the cataract of a thundering moral statement.”—The Boston Globe
A sexy aristocrat. A wild-child inner city cop. A crime wave of passion.

Feisty London street cop Shannon Aguerri walks a dangerous line between her methods and justice. After one-too-many maverick missions the bosses lose their nerve. When she's moved out from the city she rapidly discovers there's way more going on in the sleepy country village than meets the eye.

The son of a local aristocrat arouses suspicion of drug crime activity... but his widower father arouses more animal instincts! As a loner Shannon has attracted men but nothing has stuck. When she meets Spencer, the hunky Earl of Bloxington, there is an immediate rapport between them. Already in the mix however, is an upper class rival who has long plotted her way into the Earl's bed. The jealousy is an evil shade of green and the anger is a violent scarlet. Will she stoop to blackmail to thwart Shannon and Spencer's romance?

After a body is found in a ditch, life in the village turns sinister. Shannon has a hunch. Her instincts point to a local family. She needs conclusive proof and is determined to get it whatever the cost.

Will Shannon risk her heart and career on yet another high risk unauthorised investigation? Can she get justice for an innocent boy? Dare a kid from the gutter dream of being a countess?

'Dynasty' is the second in Emma Calin's kick-ass female cop 'Passion Patrol Series', combining thrilling crime mystery with suspense romance. If you enjoy James Patterson, Nora Roberts, Catherine Coulter and Kendra Elliot, you'll love a series that combines all of their best traits in fast-paced, pulse-pounding roller-coaster adventures full of passionate steamy romance, danger, love and... hot tea... yes really!
