Book three in the Vigilante Justice series proves just how hot—and deadly—it can be when opposites attract.
I’m not what you’d call a man you take home to momma. I’m too rough, too mean, too…beardy. Especially compared to the woman who’s recently moved back home to open a restaurant. The one I can’t stop thinking about. I’d eat anything off her menu, spend every waking moment in her kitchen, even if I’m all wrong for her. But when a motorcycle club comes to snatch her away on the orders of someone she trusts, I’m the only one who can step in to keep her safe. The only one willing to fight to the death to keep her heart beating—especially if it beats for mine.
Doesn’t matter the danger we’re in—I’m going to protect Katie every way I can, even if she ends up hating me for it.

"Just when I think a series can’t get any better.....Kristin Harte goes and blows me away with Justify!" - K Cram, Goodreads Reviewer
Kristin Harte started off as a chemistry major in college but somehow ended up writing romances featuring ex-military heroes and the women who knock them to their knees…literally and figuratively. She likes drinking in the shade, snuggling under a warm blanket on a cold evening, and researching how to blow things up. Her children know nothing of what she writes, and her husband just hopes he’s not at their Chicago-ish home the day the government shows up to confront Kristin about her Google search history.
When not writing good men doing bad things, Kristin can be found writing paranormal romance as Ellis Leigh or co-writing naughty novellas as London Hale.

She’s caught up in the motorcycle gang gunning for my friends and family, needing help, but I’m not some tough, former military guy like my brothers. Not that I’ll let any of that stop me.
Prison life taught me a thing or two, and I’m going to use all that knowledge to keep my girl safe. Even if the person she needs saving from is someone on our side of the fight.

My bike, my club colors, and my hunt for the man who killed my sister have been the center of my universe since I left the Marines, but all that changes when one light-eyed beauty comes crashing into my world. She’s not alone, though. There’s another man in her life. A little one whose loose teeth and joyous personality creep into my heart almost as fast as her snarky wit. She’s protective, independent, and downright adversarial, but all that’s not going to stop me from claiming her as mine. Something that will put a target right on her back…and her son’s.
Keeping Mercy and Beckett out of the line of fire is my number one priority, even if the crew they need protection from is my own and the most dangerous person in their world is me.
In a town called Justice, there’s nothing to fear except a man willing to break all the rules for the woman he craves.
As a former Green Beret, I know how to follow orders and obey rules. I’ve learned to be patient, to look at a situation from every angle, and to live by a code of honor most men know nothing about. But when a motorcycle club puts a target on not just my hometown but the five-foot-nothing blonde who unknowingly holds my heart in her hands, obeying the law takes a back seat to keeping my woman safe. I’ve never had something so precious to protect, and I’ve never been willing to cross so many lines to get a job done.
My need to destroy those who threaten Shye could cost me my home, my freedom, and my life…but I’d sacrifice it all to save her.

The second book in the Vigilante Justice series features the most dangerous second-chance romance the town has ever seen.
Fourteen years ago, a certain redhead crushed my heart into dust and left me behind without an explanation. No amount of distraction could ever make the memories vanish the way she had—not my years as a Navy SEAL, not dealing with my brother’s addiction, and definitely not trying to carve out a life in the town where her specter lurks around every corner. Now she’s back, and that smart mouth of hers has made her the target of a deadly motorcycle club…and reminded me of exactly why I fell in love with her. I need to figure out how I lost her, how to keep her alive, and how to win her back, because there’s no way I’ll ever let her go again.
Keeping Anabeth safe could leave me with nothing—no life, no family, and no future—but no one ever said second chances would be easy.
