 AOriginally released as Baby Daddy.

 



An inheritance brought her more than she ever could have
imagined…



 



Killeen Ames has it all…beauty,
brains, a college softball scholarship and a rich and handsome boyfriend who
has helped to stretch her college funds and fill her social calendar.  He is the only boy she ever allowed past
second base and now he’s her baby daddy. 
However, being a father was not in his short-range plans.  He graduates, then he splits, leaving Killeen
to decide what she wants to do about the pregnancy…and to worry about how she’s
going to keep her scholarship.  With no
marketable skills, no job, no home and medical bills for her and the baby on
the horizon, she knows she must move forward. 
A knock at the door of her boyfriend’s apartment changes the game
forever when an attorney gives her the news of an inheritance from an unknown
dead relative and
another due date looming.



 



After traveling to Austin, Killeen
walks into the meeting and is surprised to find out that the relative was
actually her birth father, and he had been a popular music star who recently
died of an overdose.  Even more shocking
are the four strangers who share the same absentee dad.  He has left them a highly successful private
investigation agency, Scandals.  The
catch is…they have to make the commitment to work there. 



 



Their introduction to the P.I.
business almost gets them killed when a bomb goes off in the warehouse that
sends Killeen to the hospital.  She has
kept the secret of her pregnancy from everyone, including Christopher, the
totally irresistible manager of Scandals. 
Their hot night of wild sex in the office was a one-time
thing…right?  She chalks up her
attraction to him as just raging hormones. 
They have no chance of a future together.  He’s gorgeous, intelligent and
successful.  He would never want anyone
with so much baggage. 



 



Christopher has a secret of his
own.  He’s been investigation the
possibility that, despite popular opinion, their father’s death hadn’t been an
accidental overdose.  He thinks it was
murder.



 



Even though the five siblings
still haven’t accepted the fact that they have a father who made no attempt to
be a part of their lives, they join together to discover the truth about his
death.  The search throws Killeen and
Christopher together and their passion grows hotter.  As her feelings for him slowly become more
serious, she knows she must tell him about the baby. 



 



After a fun day in the sun, an
event happens that outs Killeen’s secret. 
Christopher, as expected, doesn’t take the news well.  But they must continue to work together to
track down a killer, especially since the killer has now focused on them.



 



Someone doesn’t want them to stay
and take over the business.  In fact,
someone wants them all dead and now the decision on whether or not to be a part
of the agency seems very unimportant compared to the job of trying to stop from
being killed.



 



They set up a trap that goes
terribly wrong.  Suddenly, Killeen must
make a big decision.  Who should she
save?  Her baby?  Christopher? 
Her new brothers and sisters? 
Their lives are in her hands.

For romantic-suspense junkies and fans of Nora Roberts and Karen Robards, bestselling author Kathy Clark kicks off her Austin Heroes series with a pulse-pounding tale of two wounded souls tempted by a dangerous proposition: new love.
 
DEA agent Nick Archer puts his life on the line every day. A former Marine, he fears nothing . . . except commitment. Nick has no trouble finding women eager to warm his bed, and no problem sending them on their way the morning after. Relationships don’t mix with risky careers, a fact Nick learned the hard way after his marriage fell apart. He’d go it alone if it weren’t for his new K-9 partner—and the stunning trainer who makes Nick sit up and take notice.
 
Just like her service dogs, Jamie Chambers knows how to sniff out trouble. From the moment Nick swaggers into her kennel, she knows he’s heartbreak waiting to happen, and he wastes no time getting under her skin. Hell, he doesn’t even like dogs. As a cop’s widow, Jamie has felt the sting of loss in the line of duty, yet she recognizes something of her own pain in Nick’s smoldering gaze. Jamie knows there are no guarantees in life. But a moment of pleasure, however fleeting, holds the promise of forever—and for that, Jamie’s willing to take the plunge.

Praise for After Love
 
“Fast-paced, riveting . . . Playful dialogue between Nick and Jamie certainly kept me entertained, and I loved every moment they were together as their banter increased the sexual tension between them. . . .

Sure to thrill readers of Nora Roberts and Karen Robards, the breathtaking Denver Heroes series from New York Times bestselling author Kathy Clark continues as two adrenaline junkies find themselves fighting unexpected passion—and unspeakable terror.
 
Ex-soldier Chris Wilson lost too many friends to war. Back home in Denver, he’s trying to make a difference as a paramedic, treating victims of crisis situations. Not even active combat could prepare Chris for the rush he gets when violence and tragedy collide, but the job isn’t the only thing making his heart race. His partner is his closest confidant from childhood, and the girl he remembers is now a strong, sensual woman . . . who needs him more than ever.
 
Sara Richards is more comfortable risking her life than asking for help. The petite blonde medic put a wall around her heart long ago, vowing to never let anyone hurt her again. Only now her long-buried secrets threaten to destroy everything she’s built. And though she should be able to trust Chris, his smoldering blue-gray eyes ignite desires that feel more dangerous than whatever’s lurking in the shadows. For once, Sara can’t go it alone. But Chris might just be stubborn enough to stand by her side as she faces down her worst nightmare.
