It’s 1926, and Edie Kahn is a struggling film star and daughter of a master brewer. When she returns to Chicago, the city’s most powerful crime lord orders her kidnapped in a ruthless blackmail scheme against her father.
Grant must bring her home again. He must deceive her to keep her safe, but keeping her safe isn’t easy when they’re holed up with heavily-armed gangsters and no way back to his aeroplane. Only his lies help keep them alive. Only his work undercover will give him the answers the Secret Six need to keep their mission strong.
But only the truth will convince Edie to trust him. Grant can’t give her what she craves, but there’s something convincing in his touch and kisses. She learns she must follow her heart as together, they escape the perils in one country for the safety in another, and discover an unexpected love for each other along the way.
After being published in fourteen historical western romances and one contemporary romantic suspense, I’m excited to take a much different turn in my career with my new historical romantic suspense series, the Secret Six. I’ve fallen in love with that delicious grittiness of the time period—Mafia, Prohibition, and of course, romance.
I'm a long-time member of Romance Writers of America and one of the founders of Petticoats and Pistols, a popular blogsite for western romance. I'm married to my high school sweetheart, Doug, and we have four daughters. I’m enjoying an early retirement where I can spend time with my children and grandchildren and do what I'm most passionate about: writing books.
Last, but not least, if you enjoy cooking, hop over to my newest venture, my food blog, Swanky Kitchen, where I love ‘making the past taste good again’!
