I was supposed to be the trustworthy one, the brother from another mother who fit right into the Kennard family and the social scene of Justice. I moved to town, opened a bar, became a friend to everyone who walked through the door. I also killed a few Soul Suckers along the way, but that was to be expected—you can’t stir up a hornet’s nest without expecting to be stung. But one night with a stranger brings my persona—and my entire life—to the brink of disaster. I should have recognized her, should have known who she was when she sat down beside me, but I’d spent too much time looking out for enemies. I never thought to be worried about my best friend’s little sister. One night—after a few too many drinks—I crossed a line I shouldn’t have, but that doesn’t mean I regret it. It also doesn’t mean I will stay on my side just because it’s what I should do.
Lainie Kennard should be off-limits and I should really stop killing people, but when the Soul Suckers come back to town and threaten the peace we’ve fought for, I’ll do anything to keep her safe.
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.
