Gabriel Knorlin has spent his life protecting himself from the kind of pain no one should ever have to endure. The tragedy he survived sculpted every decision he ever made.


The one decision he regretted? Abagail Crawford—a woman he calls family, but one he’s kept at arm’s length. He can’t live through the pain of losing someone he loves again.


Only fate has kicked him in the balls and placed Abbey squarely in his lap. His only goal is to protect her from the Los Muertos cartel.


Her own insistence on getting herself killed aside, he’s afraid he’ll give in to his desires and it’ll cost him the only family he has.



Assistant ADA Abagail Crawford finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation. A colleague was killed, and Abbey’s been given his investigation into a drug cartel and now his murder. She’s not equipped to handle it. Her specialty is white collar crime, but fake it ‘til you make it, right?


Her brother, of course, insists on Gabe being her bodyguard until the investigation and trial are over. Considering what happened to her predecessor, she can’t argue with him.


There is a problem, however.


She’s loved Gabe since she was twelve years old. When she confessed her feelings for him, he sister-zoned her in the most embarrassing and hurtful way. She’s avoided him like the plague ever since.


But now, she can’t escape the attraction. She discovers the man has feelings for her, and it’s up to her to figure out why he’s so afraid.


Hopefully, she can get the guy before they both end up on the receiving end of a bullet. She just has to convince one very reluctant, stubborn man they’re worth fighting for.

So who am I?

Well, I’m the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tell me to stop watching them, but who doesn’t love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.

Now, I live in a small town in West Virginia where I entertain my niece and nephew and watch the cats get teased by the birds and laugh myself silly when they swoop down and then dive back up just out of reach. The cats start yelling something fierce…lol.

I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.
