Hell hath no fury like Valentine . . .

Five years. It's been five years of blissful peace for private eye Valentine Shepherd and her hot-ass husband, Max Carressa. Five years of watching their twins grow up healthy and happy, even as Val waits for Hell to unleash its fury. Her enemies have been planning, and Val knows she doesn't have nearly enough weapons to protect her family . . .

Yet Val and Max have one advantage—their insatiable desire for each other allows them to see into the future, and the visions they share may just give them a chance. But as events are set into motion that endanger everyone Val's ever loved, she'll do whatever it takes to stop the horror she's already seen—even if it means her end.

I’m a kick-ass woman who writes kick-ass books about kick-ass women. Though they differ in tone – some light, some dark – all my books share strong, complicated women, hot dudes, intricate plots, and a hefty dose of humor. If that’s your jam, then you’ve come to the right place!

Living in the Northeast with my husband, two young daughters, and two old pugs, I find time to read, write (obviously), teach martial arts, and occasionally take trips to Central Asia where I dodge bullets and bombs. By day, I serve my country in the US military. By night, I hunker down in a corner and crank out the crazy stories lurking in my head.

Excerpt ~

Val forced herself to relax. “I need to run an errand,” she said, though it came out a little bitchier than she’d intended. She tried to tone the hostility down. “Are you…going to be okay here with them? Alone?”

Jamal nodded. “Yes, ma’am—Val—uh, ma’am.”

She took a step toward the door, then turned back. “You’ve got everything you need, right? Their nap schedules, their favorite books, their lunch and snack foods—”

“Yes, I’ve got it. I wrote it all down,” he said in a gently reassuring tone. She’d need to get used to that voice, and train herself not to mistake it for condescension.

“And it’s one snack before lunch. Don’t let them trick you into giving them an entire package of Oreos. They’re more clever than you might think.”

“Oreos on lockdown. Clear as crystal.”

“You remember all the codes for the locks and alarms on the house, right?”

“Uh-huh.”

“And you’ve got my number if you need anything?”

“I sure do.”

She nodded, walked to the living room’s threshold, stopped, and turned again. “Don’t let anyone in here who isn’t Max or me, no matter who they say they are. I mean it.”

Jamal smiled again—he did that a lot, maybe because he had nice teeth—though a hint of uncertainty tainted his friendly gaze. Probably wondering what the hell he’d gotten himself into. “Yes, ma’—Val. I won’t let anyone in.”

No one.”

“Got it. No one’s coming through that front door, not on my watch.”

She should’ve left then; instead, she stared at him until a bead of sweat trickled down his temple.

Simon broke the standoff. “We’ll be fine, Mommy. Go talk to the cop.”

Val softened a bit at that. If Simon knew he and his sister would be fine, then they’d be fine. As long as she didn’t inadvertently change the future, what he’d seen would come to pass. Val embraced them both in long hugs, kissing their foreheads. She thought they might cry when she left; they didn’t. They knew they’d see her again soon. Still, when Val walked to the door leading down to the carport and grasped the doorknob, she saw her hand shaking. She’d never forgive herself if something happened to her babies while she left them with an overpriced babysitter. Would they really be safe without her? They’d have to be. Max was right—she couldn’t be with them all the time. She’d have to trust other people eventually, and that time was now. G-d help Jamal if he screwed it up, though.

Swallowing back a lump in her throat, Val forced herself forward, away from her children, into her car, out of the house, and back into the world she’d been hiding from for over five years. Tendrils from its black underbelly would likely rise up and try to seize her again. But there was no way around it if she wanted any chance to save her mother.

Time to go see the cop.
