Newly pinned deputy Jolie Murdoch’s first big job as a McIntire County deputy is to locate a missing girl. What Jolie doesn’t expect is to stumble upon a corpse – the girl’s father – with a prime suspect still hanging around. But why would local bartender Xavier Hartmann go off the deep end and bludgeon a man to death?

A former marine, Xavier is barely coping with a traumatic brain injury, and he has no memory of what happened at the crime scene. He came to Eider to confront his past, not get embroiled in a murder as the number one suspect. To make matters worse, as the mystery deepens, Xavier finds himself drawn to the reluctant deputy.

As Jolie fights against mounting pressure to get to the truth, she realizes there’s more to Xavier than meets the eye. But someone is lingering on the fringes, determined to put a stop to her investigation and Xavier’s freedom. Will Jolie do her sworn duty or buck the status quo to give her and Xavier’s newfound passion a chance?

Fall Into Romance Sun, 15 Nov 2015 04:11:27 +0000 scribblers













Fall is decidedly my favorite season, and not just because my birthday is in autumn. I love everything from the cooler weather, the leaves are in full color, all things pumpkin, and wearing hoodies, and lets not forget football season. Fall also gives me the cooking/baking bug. A lot of my favorite squashes are in season as well as apples. I recently discovered this fabulous recipe from Live Simply using sweet potatoes and apples, and if you’re really daring you can add pecans.

Don’t forget to sign-up for the ebook giveaway, along with 11 other great books, you can win a copy of my latest book, Atonement–which happens to take place in the fall. The Raffelcopter link follows the recipe. Good luck!

Apple and Sweet Potato Bake
  • 2 cups sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup chopped apples
  • 2 TB pastured butter, cubed
  • 2 TB raw raw honey
  • 1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • pinch of salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 400º.
  2. Add the apples and sweet potatoes to a baking dish. Top with honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pinch of salt. Toss the ingredients together. Add the cubed butter to the top of the mixture.
  3. Cover with foil or a foil alternative and bake for 25 minutes until the potatoes are soft.
  4. Serve Warm.
