Julieanne Reeves is a third generation Arizonan with a background in Police-Fire-911 Communications. When she's not spending time spoiling her two wonderful children, she enjoys reading and writing steamy romantic suspense. Having had the privilege of working with some of the finest Law Enforcement Officers in the nation, it's little wonder her heroes carry a firearm and badge. Julieanne currently lives in the Phoenix-Metro area, but hopes to one day return to the mountain town that inspired her Walking A Thin Blue Line series.
Sarah Jones’s life is a lie. She thought she'd married a hero who protected the innocent, but behind closed doors he became her worst nightmare—a monster from whom she and her children could not escape.
Officer Nick Astenbeck has loved Sarah for years. Unable to watch her build a life with someone else, he kept his distance after she married his patrol-partner, Seth...allowing Sarah to suffer through a hell he should have been able to prevent.
When Seth unexpectedly dies, Sarah believes she's finally free. Yet she soon discovers that even in death he has the power to destroy her. With the finances Seth controlled gone, an unexpected baby on the way, and a series of suspicious events threatening the safety of Sarah and her children, she turns to Nick. Nick's offer of protection, however, comes with something more than Sarah expected—Hope. As the threats escalate, and danger closes in, Nick and Sarah must work together to lay the past to rest, and uncover the secrets that will stop an enemy from destroying them and their one chance at happiness.
For two years, State Trooper Kayne Dobrescu has wanted only one thing: to understand why his wife inexplicably killed their children and then herself. Memories haunt his days and lay siege to his nights, leaving him questioning his reasons for living.
Jessica Hallstatt became a widow and single mother the night her firefighter husband died in a fiery explosion at an accident scene. While her husband may have died a hero, he left Jessica with deep emotional scars that haven't begun to heal.
When Kayne accepted a transfer to the mountain town of Payson, Arizona, he never expected to meet anyone like Jessica. From the moment he pulled her over for speeding, he was drawn in by her whiskey colored eyes and sassy dimple. But she and her children are a forever type package, and he's vowed never to give anyone the power to destroy him again. Yet fate has other ideas, throwing Kayne and Jessica together in a fight against an unknown enemy to save the life of a child—and hopefully one another.
