LONGEST VERSION:


The first three installments of the fun and sexy Heroes of Henderson Series by USA Today Bestselling author Liz Kelly. 


Three swoon-worthy Southern boys face turning thirty and realize it’s high time to get serious about love and life.


In Playin’ Cop, Duncan James bets his old frat buddies—turned small-town cops—he can do what they can’t. Give the sassy local speed demon a ticket. But when he’s confronted with a red-headed Southern belle out to win a bet of her own, his heart gets tangled up in the outcome.


In Good Cop, Duncan’s cop buddies Brooks and Vance realize they have a reputation problem. When it comes to romance, their good cop-bad cop images have them handcuffed. They want a woman’s point of view to help unshackle their reputations and they’ve picked out a pretty, pony-tailed firecracker to do it. Lolly DuVal’s coming off a nice, safe, boring relationship so she eagerly agrees to tutor Henderson’s hunkiest heroes on what women really want. But soon she realizes she’s in way over her head, caught between two cops and a hard place.


In Bad Cop our reformed bad boy tracks down the little blonde he can’t forget. The one who saved his life back in fourth grade. Even though part of her is still the same sweet Piper he remembers, the rest of her is the Lawyer Beaumont—a defense attorney with a searing pet peeve against cops. 


“The Heroes of Henderson series is laugh-out-loud fun with a whole lot of steamy truck windows. Definitely Southern lovin’ at it’s best.”

About the author

 USA Today bestselling author of the Heroes of Henderson Series.


Liz's Heroes of Henderson series grew out of the New Year's Eve Anthology, Countdown To A Kiss, where the Devine Sisters of Henderson, N.C. had a bet every year at their parents' New Year's Eve ball. The sister who didn't have a date to kiss at midnight had to kiss their nerdy neighbor, Lewis Kampmueller.


Duncan James, the hero of Liz's novella in Countdown To A Kiss (which has also been published separately as Playin' Cop) is not only best friends with Lewis, but with both Brooks Bennett and Vance Evans, his fraternity brothers from NC State. Brooks and Vance are the Henderson cops who kick off the series with Good Cop and Bad Cop.


Recurring characters is the theme of the Henderson series. Each book is a complete romance in and of itself, but you won't lose touch with the couples you fall in love with. They keep playing big parts and small in following books as Brooks and Vance lead Team Henderson in finding ways to revive their small town.


"DuVal Cousin" books are an additional part of the Heroes of Henderson series, and usually are tucked in between books with numbers like 2.5 and 3.5. They can be full length novels or short novellas, and they are based on Lolly DuVal's (from Good Cop) Henderson cousins. Where the Heroes books are hero-centric, the DuVal Cousin books are heroine based.


Henderson is an actual town in North Carolina where some of Liz's favorite people were raised. Liz's version of Henderson is completely fictional since she hasn't had the pleasure of going back in nearly thirty years. But oh the fun she had while visiting there in her youth. Her memories are the perfect landscape for her contemporary romances.


Liz enjoys putting friends and readers in cameo appearances in her books. Originally from Baltimore, she spent every summer near Annapolis, Maryland in a community where dancing and romancing are literally part of its theme song. (The place where Jesse James gets banished from in Bad Cop. There is going to be a series about that place someday.) 


A graduate of Wake Forest University, where she met her handsome golf-addicted husband, (who is now sporting dark glasses everywhere he goes) Liz is a mother of two grown sons (also sporting dark glasses) and a miniature Labradoodle named Isabelle. They live in the Fountain of Youth, a.k.a. Naples, FL where dancing and romancing continues on ad infinitum.

The Clover Park Boxed Set includes three full-length novels: The Opposite of Wild, Daisy Does It All, and Bad Taste in Men. I wrote this series so one story picks up where the previous story left off, which makes it fun to binge read all together.

Book 1: The Opposite of Wild

Ex-cop Ryan O'Hare takes one look at buttoned-up control freak Liz Garner and just itches to loosen the woman up. Not that he’s into her. Because a woman like that comes with way too many expectations. Not to mention, she practically works for him, and he didn’t hire Liz to watch after his beloved Harley-stealing Gran so he could turn Liz loose in his bed. Still, there’s something about her, a hidden wild side, that makes him wonder what it would take.

Book 2: Daisy Does It All

Exhausted single mom Daisy Garner is shocked when her blog about her perfect life with husband and baby brings a national talk show to her door. Amazing! Except she made the whole thing up. Enter Travis O'Hare, her fake husband, who's intent on becoming the real deal.

Book 3: Bad Taste in Men

Rachel Miller knows opening a café will make her struggling bookstore the place to hang out. But when the bank turns her down and her best friend Shane O’Hare steps in, the café suddenly has too much riding on it—her career, her best friend, and her heart.

Don’t miss the next book in the series, Kissing Santa, with some big news from the O’Hare family!

From the USA Today bestselling author Liz Kelly and her Heroes of Henderson series, meet the DuVal Cousins, Molly and Vivi.

In Taming Molly, Henderson's infamous Molly DuVal is desperate to move back home. Banished for the past five years, she plans to use her aunt’s wedding to show the Henderson elite that she is no longer the boy crazy, wild, party-girl exhibitionist they all loved to gossip about.

Josh McCourt, mild-mannered AP Computer Science teacher and newest assistant coach to Henderson High's football team, is ready to break away from his low-key image and take a walk on the wild side. He’s looking for the type of girl who’d sneak into the boy’s locker room after practice and let him chase her around. He’s looking for Molly.

When the bad-girl-turned-good faces off with the good-boy-looking-for-bad at the town’s biggest wedding, all of Henderson is watching from the sidelines. This is one game both Molly and Josh are determined to win.

Taming Molly is a fun and sexy 20,000 word stand-alone novella and the first in the DuVal Cousins series.

In Tempting Vivi, Molly’s cousin Vivi DuVal is ready to graduate college and start her dream career. But her confidence is shaken when her boyfriend drops a bomb that sends her spinning … right into the arms of heroic Lane Kettering.

What starts out as a romantic beach fling is about to end up as fodder for the tabloids when Lane’s secret is unexpectedly revealed and Vivi finds herself in extremely hot and tempting water.

Tempting Vivi is a full length novel.


USA Today author Liz Kelly’s Heroes of Henderson series continues with Top Dog, Kissing Cooper, and UnderDog.

Like hell.


It’s taken him way too long to find the perfect Mrs. Carraway, and now that he’s had the fortuitous luck to stumble into Henderson and his bride, he’s not about to let her go.




Kissing Cooper ~ A Christmas Quickie


Scorched by an old flame, Cooper Crenshaw, Henderson High’s championship-winning baseball coach, has done everything in his power to avoid coming back to town.

As the Christmas season heats up, so does his desire to get to the bottom of their abrupt breakup.

With holiday ribbon.

To his bedpost.


UnderDog ~  Book 4


When Davis Williams, a.k.a Pinks, sets a goal, it's done. Yesterday. His enthusiasm, ingenuity, and git 'r done attitude have transformed him from interloper to integral part of “Team Henderson,” and one crazy-hot night of vigorous out-of-town lovin’ has busted him out of his Nice, Safe, Boring persona.

Things are really taking shape for Pinks, especially when he encounters the sassy siren he can't forget. His goal now: coax the evasive Red into becoming a real part of his life.

But when Pinks discovers his mysterious lover is not only intimately tied to Henderson, but his own notorious scandal as well, he realizes he’s in the middle of a desperate no-win situation.  

Can the man who believes Henderson is a field of dreams keep his own alive? Or has Pinks come up against the one dream he can’t possibly make happen in Henderson?

 

In the UK the number of people who came from a minority ethnic group grew by 53 per cent between 1991 and 2001, from 3.0 million in 1991 to 4.6 million in 2001. Whilst much has been written about the impact of these demographic changes in relation to policy issues, black and minority women and children remain under-researched. Recent publications have tended to focus on South Asian women, forced marriage and 'honour' related violence.

Moving in the Shadows brings together for the first time in a single volume, an examination of violence against women and children within the diverse communities of the UK. Its strength lies in its gendered focus as well as its understanding of the need for an integrated approach to all forms of violence against women, whilst foregrounding the experiences of minority women, the communities they are part of, and the organizations which have advocated for their rights and given them voice.

The chapters contained within this volume explore a set of core themes: the forms and contexts of violence minority women experience; the continuum of violence; the role of culture and faith in the control of women and girls; the types of intervention within multi-cultural and social cohesion policies; the impacts of violence on British-born and migrant women and girls; and the intersection of race, class, gender and sexuality highlighting issues of similarity and difference. Taken together, they provide a valuable resource for scholars, students, activists, social workers and policy-makers working in the field.
