Let the Dead Lie
He wanted her, they needed her, but loving them may cost her everything…
A widower with four adopted daughters, Emmit McKay likes to keep a handle on things. But nothing can prepare the former FBI sharpshooter for the battles coming to his small hometown. Especially the one which arrives in such a tempting package.
Savannah Walker moves to Blue Creek to take over as principal of the school Emmit’s daughters attend. With a masters’ degree in education and a no-nonsense attitude, she is caught off guard by the behavior of the McKay girls and never expects to fall in love with them—or in lust with their father. But her intimacy with the family stirs up rumors and unearths secrets.
Savannah and Emmit cannot deny the chemistry which draws them together, but the closer they get, the more dangerous the stakes become. When a murderer is hidden amongst you, you can’t let the dead lie.

Let the Dead Lie Teaser

An Excerpt from the Book

Take an inside look at Let the Dead Lie. Read this sizzling excerpt from the book.
The new principal took his breath away. She had creamy skin, golden-brown hair, and eyes that shone like sapphires. She was small and slender but had curves he couldn’t miss. She was almost the exact opposite of Gracie, who had been both model slim and tall. Emmit knew he was staring, but he wasn’t the only one.
“Pops, what’s the matter witcha?” Fletcher wanted to know, jumping out of Casey’s lap and moving toward him, sizing him up. “You’s ain’t sick, are yah?”
Emmit shook his head to clear it. He glanced back at Principal Walker as she, too, became aware of the girls once again. He tweaked Fletcher’s nose.
“Nah, kiddo, I’m fine, just fine,” he said as the principal held out her hand.
“Mr. McKay, I presume, I’m Savan…um, Principal Walker. Sorry you had to come out here,” she said and after one brief shake, dropped his hand.
“Ma’am. Well, you being the new principal and all, we were bound to meet sooner or later.” He almost smiled, then motioned to his girls. “Who wants to explain to me what happened this time?” He looked from one guilty face to another. Feet shuffled and hands clasped.
“Daddy, it was all a big misunderstanding. Things were said, and then one thing led to another, and well, here we are,” Alexandra explained in the wispy voice he knew she’d been practicing in the mirror.
Great read that keeps you guessing from beginning to end. Couldn’t put it down!

An Excerpt from the Book

Take an inside look at The Darkest Loop. Read this sizzling excerpt from the book.
It was the fourth September 10th, 2001 we had spent in New York City. And each of those Mondays discouraged us even more. Hanging around the World Trade Center for a month (real time) got us no closer to the unfettered access we needed. The possibility of being stuck in this ruthless rut forever was starting to weigh heavily on my soul.
“What’s wrong?” Thena asked.
We were standing on the Observation Deck of the South Tower and I hadn’t said a word since we got there. And now, I was looking over the edge of the railing like I might just jump over it. Wouldn’t do me any good, though, considering there was a jumper’s net not far below. And even if there wasn’t, a fall from 110 stories wouldn’t do me any harm. I’d hit the ground then wake up on September 3rd, 2001 remembering absolutely nothing.
“What’s wrong,” she asked again. “Is it the dream?”
“Look, it wasn’t a wet one if that’s what you’re thinking. It was actually more like a nightmare.”
“But one in which you kept screaming out Zoe’s name.”
In my dream, my mother was attacking my father and his girlfriends. A bloody foursome of sorts. Only it was just my mother’s body. But the head belonged to my ex-girlfriend, Zoe. She had a crazed look in her eyes. I watched as she stabbed my father over and over again. And then, as he lay there in a pool of his own blood, she took a Phillips head screwdriver and slowly, sinfully twisted it right-left-right, into my father’s temple. He screamed but the screams were my voice. Begging for Zoe to stop.
“The dream was nothing,” I said. “And everything is cool.” The lie was better than the truth. The truth is I was coming unglued. Destabilized by this loop which faithfully kept twirling us round and round. I was a moon trapped in its orbit. And its gravity was slowly tearing me apart.
