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.
PAYBACK is a full-length contemporary romantic suspense novel from USA Today bestselling author Ellis Leigh writing as Kristin Harte. It's the first book in the Vigilante Justice series featuring stories of very good men doing very bad things to protect those they love.
"This book had it all. Suspense, family devotion, love and how sometimes you will risk it all, even your life, for the one that has hold of your heart. Loved. Loved. Loved." - Melissa Marino, author of the Bad Behavior series
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.
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.
RETALIATE is a full-length contemporary romantic suspense novel from USA Today bestselling author Ellis Leigh writing as Kristin Harte. It's the second book in the Vigilante Justice series featuring stories of very good men doing very bad things to protect those they love.

Feared by even his own kind, Bez of the Dire Wolf shifters knows exactly how to succeed in any battle. Even if that means racking up collateral damage along the way. A simple mission into the swamplands to save a teenage wolf shifter should have been an easy track and retrieval for a man with his training, but nothing comes easy when the fates get involved.
In one night, Omega Sariel went from a free, single shewolf to a captive with a teenage girl to watch over and a couple of guards intent on making her life miserable…what little is left of it. Then a soldier with ice in his eyes walks in, and the mating call begins. He’s too tough, too harsh, too murderous…but when your life hangs in the balance, a lethal fighter in your corner is better than battling alone.

In the world of the Dire Wolves, a retrieval is a simple mission for the unit of soldiers that make up their pack. But this time, a single glance blows simple right out of the swamp and forces Bez to make his stand alone.
One soldier, one fight…one chance at forever.

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
Creating dream homes,
That’s what I do.
As the country’s #1 home renovator,
I'm in high demand.
And when I encounter, April,
I know something’s off,
Nobody wants that crap property,
Unless they’re looking for something more,
And I refuse to get burned again.
It's happened one time too many.
But something about her,
The way she gives,
Devotes everything to everyone else,
Makes me second-guess myself.
After one touch, I’m sold,
Ready to build something,
Each book in this small-town hot romance series can be read as a standalone, but for a richer reading experience, the following order is recommended:
