Macey's first day in the college employee relations department ends with a knife at her throat.
Macey is certain things can't get any worse. She's wrong. An angry employee vows to put her on an online hit list. When he turns up dead, she's a suspect--and on the hit list.
To keep her secrets and her life, Macey partners with two unexpected allies who cause her pulse to race with steamy attraction--and exasperating annoyance. Vince, a handsome, driven lawman, digs up more than just clues to the brutal murder. Brett, a fun-loving pathologist with a deadly sense of humor, drives everyone crazy with his fart machine-will travel. Macey's supersized black cat Wikket, possessing courage, curiosity, and crankiness in equal portions, assists in his own grumpy, feline fashion, golden eyes open and claws extended.

About the Author:
I spent the first twenty-odd years of my life in rural Kentucky, many of those years without electricity or running water. In my writings, I draw upon my early years of deprivation. Along with one of my protagonists, Marisa Adair (the Takes a Dare series), I did not know people ate three meals a day until I started school.
To help me better understand my childhood as well as to “give back,” I completed volunteer work in a domestic violence shelter. Understanding the puzzle of abusers and their victims involves such complex factors as religion, culture, self-esteem, and cycles of abuse and victimization which may span generations. In my volunteer role, I helped abused women work on their job searching, resume writing, and interview skills. When I asked women to name one positive thing about themselves, it was heartbreaking to see the women struggle to come up with just one good trait or strength.
Now, I live in central Kentucky with my wonderful husband and our cat, rescued from the animal shelter. In spite of her humble beginnings, the cat rules the household and is also a kleptomaniac. Once, she stole a Bluetooth and hid it under the couch. It took her humans several days to locate her ill-gotten booty.
In my day job, I work in higher education. It hurts my heart to see young adults on staggering under tremendous student loan debt. I encourage people to find other ways to finance their educations. While working full-time in a gas station and going to school full-time, I earned my bachelor's degree in business administration. Using the tuition plan at work, I subsequently earned my masters degree in public administration.
