Tempting Vivi 

A DuVal Cousins Novel


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

But 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 the latest addition to the Heroes of Henderson series by USA Today Bestselling Author Liz Kelly. All of the books in this series are complete romances and do not need to be read in order, although it’s more fun that way as characters from previous books continue to show up throughout the series. The DuVal Cousins stories, Tempting Vivi and Taming Molly definitely don’t have to be read in order.

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 Chicago during the summers, and the Fountain of Youth, a.k.a. Naples, FL in the winter, where dancing and romancing continues on ad infinitum.

Good Cop

 Welcome to Christmas in Henderson! Kissing Cooper is a holiday addition to the Heroes of Henderson Series by USA Today Bestselling Author Liz Kelly.

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. So running into Christy-Lynn Brilhart ten minutes after his return is less like a Christmas miracle and more like Cooper's own personal Nightmare Before Christmas.

Now a stylish businesswoman, Christy-Lynn may be done wearing hand-me-downs, but she sure isn't done setting Cooper's blood on fire. As the Christmas season heats up, so does his desire to get to the bottom of their abrupt breakup. Realizing the town he still loves could use his major league help, Cooper figures it's time to tie up a few loose ends.

With holiday ribbon.

To his bedpost.


All of the books in the Heroes of Henderson Series are complete romances and do not need to be read in order.  However there are always reoccurring characters and in Kissing Cooper you get a healthy dose of Vance, Brooks, and Pinks.

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?

USA TODAY BESTSELLER • The offseason is heating up for one Carolina Cold Fury heartbreaker who’s eager to make nice with the girl next door.

No one plays like Reed Olson, whether it’s hockey season or not. After back-to-back NHL championships, he’s craving a little R&R. Reed leans to a specific type—blond, busty, and interested—and fortunately he has a little black book full of options. So why is it he can’t stop dreaming about the new girl who just moved in next door? A certified brainiac, she seems to want nothing to do with the hard-bodied athlete.

Josie Ives desperately needs something her celebrity neighbor obviously doesn’t: solitude. Reed is everything she imagined—a little too good-looking, with a body that puts Greek gods to shame. But she didn’t expect he would also be funny and charming. Josie knows she’s the opposite of his type, and that’s fine with her. Still, the chemistry between them is undeniable. Their newfound friendship certainly has its benefits, but she’s starting to wonder if opposites really do attract.

Praise for Reed

“Sawyer Bennett is my go-to author for all things sexy. And Reed certainly blew my skates right off!”—USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy

I guarantee that if you are grabbing this one as a standalone, it will make you want to jump in feet first to the entire series.”—Red Cheeks Reads

“So much fun . . . a lovely romance between an off-season hockey star and his ER doctor neighbor that made me laugh and then swoon and then laugh again.”—Becky on Books . . . and Quilts

Book 1 in the Heroes of Henderson series by USA Today Bestselling Author Liz Kelly

What happens when best friends fall for the same girl?

A bromance, a romance, and a love triangle.


Local sports heroes Brooks Bennett and Vance Evans are used to being part of a winning team. Yet 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 one pretty, pony-tailed firecracker to do it.


Lolly DuVal longs for a summer fling that can set off all her bells and whistles. So she agrees to tutor Henderson’s hunkiest heroes on what women really want. But now she finds herself caught between two cops and a hard place. And those bells and whistles? They are starting to sound a whole lot more like alarms.

 **All the books in the Heroes of Henderson Series are complete romances. They do not need to be read in order, but it might be more fun that way as characters continue to show up in subsequent Henderson books in big ways and small.

Book 6 in the Heroes of Henderson series from USA Today bestselling author Liz Kelly. 


After Dallas, Laidey Bartholomew finds Henderson to be a breath of fresh air. Out from under the expectations of her socialite family, she can be as invisible as she chooses. She’s perfectly happy flying under the radar, until a hot-tempered, masculine work of art roars into town on his Road King and zeroes in on her.


All of a sudden, Laidey’s not invisible anymore.


Xavier Wright hasn’t lived in Henderson for fourteen years. You’d think by now everyone would have forgotten about his juvenile antics. Knowing his sick ma doesn’t need any additional stress in her life, he’s determined to make amends for his bad-boy ways. Unfortunately, a certain little newcomer continually brings out the worst in him.


She’s way too prissy for him. He’s way too domineering for her.


Harry believes it’s a match made in heaven.

`The research methodology and the problems encountered when studying a subject such as domestic violence, coupled with the ethical problems of researching with children, are discussed at length in the book. This gives a good insight into the intricacies of conducting such a research study. The research looked not only at children who were known to have direct contact with domestic violence, but also what children in general thought and felt about domestic violence. The presentation of the findings, both in tabular and narrative form, was well presented' -

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.
