When bullets start to fly, Ray is forced to take the wife he believes faithless on the lam until they can figure out who is trying to kill them.
Family obligations have left Titus Standish stuck in Harkness. While his younger siblings went off into the world, he stayed, working the farm and running the local search and rescue. He was there when Lacey fell to her death and blames himself. He dreads the day another mission takes him up there again. But when Ocean’s mother calls, concerned that her daughter is wandering the mountain, he leaps into action.
Ocean is thrilled to be found…until she sees her savior. She’s known Titus Standish all her life, and has loved him almost that long. But at four years his junior, she was just a kid with a crush. When Titus finds her, he’s determined to march her back down the mountain to safety. But Ocean has other plans; she’ll be damned if she’ll give up this trek. Yet all trails seem to lead to one place…straight into Titus’s arms.
NOTE: This is a 25,000-word novella. There will be a new Brown and de Luca Novel, GIRL BLUE later in 2019.
“Shayne has hit the jackpot with the pairing of self-help author Rachel de Luca and Detective Mason Brown. …he is a master storyteller.”

Innocent Prey, a Brown and de Luca Novel
Hey, I’m Rachel and just so you know up front, I’ve got a mouth on me. Not in public–when I can help it. Cussing is bad for the image of a bona fide guru of self-help, or that which I call “the bullsh*t I write.”
Only, I’m not so sure it’s bullsh*t, because in trying it out, I got my eyesight back after 20 years. Yeah, the corneal tissue came from a serial killer, and yeah, I started seeing his crimes. But still, eyesight.
I also have the hottest detective in the universe attached to my proverbial–and, okay, wider than I’d like–hip. I got his 2 nephews with the package and I couldn’t fu–freaking love Jeremy and Josh more if I was their mother, which I’m way too young to be.
That’s a lie, Rache. They’re twelve and eighteen. You’re thirty–
Don’t interrupt, Inner B*tch, I’m on a roll.
I also have my amazing bulldog, Myrtle. I understand her. She’s blind like I used to be.
And I got a little something extra with my cornea transplant. “It’s a blessing and a curse,” said the greatest TV detective ever.
Only my something extra was…let’s say down. And one of Josh’s sixth-going-into-seventh-grade pals has been kidnapped. The sick prick snatched him off his bicycle and left a note behind. “Wait for instructions.” Only none ever came.
What a time for my antennae to be out of whack! I wanted my stuff back.
So my wires are down, there’s a kid missing, I’m bathing in my pity pool, and things get worse. A big celebrity psychic shows up to help the cops find the missing kid. In my town.
So there’s all that. But I’m out of room, so…just get the book, and I’ll tell you the rest.
“This is page-turning, non-stop suspense at its finest.”
