I am the shadow that moves in the night, the one that has you constantly looking over your shoulder.
I work within the bounds of the law when it suits me, but make one wrong move and I’ll throw the rule book out the window to end you.
My job requires a certain level of deception, an ability to put aside feelings and relationships to get the job done.
I can honestly say there’s not a single person alive I wouldn’t betray for the right reasons.
It’s who I am and I can’t change.
But there’s one woman that threatens to break me.
I knew it the moment I met her four years ago. So young and naive, it’s easy to see how a woman like her could fall for a man like me.
She doesn’t see through the lies and manipulations.
She thinks she knows the man I am, but she only sees what I allow.
I’ve done everything in my power to keep her safe from me, but now I have to do something that could nearly gut me.
I have to betray her.
I know she’ll never forgive me, but this isn’t just about the job.
Someone’s life is at stake, and unfortunately for her, his life is one I can’t allow to slip away.
She’ll never forgive me—that’s if she lives.
And I’ll never forgive myself.
But these defining moments in life are what make us who we are.
I know I’ll always be the man that will get the job done.
No matter the cost.

I’m a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, “No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book.” I didn’t think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn’t already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven’t been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.
