New Release – Vindicated

YES! It’s officially release day for VINDICATED, book 1 of my Atlanta’s Finest Series! I’m excited about introducing you to a couple of new characters who have been dominating my world lately! But first, a little about this new series.

Atlanta’s Finest, is a loose spinoff of my Reunited Series. Do you remember Supreme Security Agency? It’s the personal security agency Malik Lewis (TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES) founded in Chicago. Well, the agency has now expanded to Atlanta where Mason Bennett and Hamilton Crosby (both first introduced in – A PASSIONATE KISS) run the Atlanta office. Most of the security specialists who work for the the company are former police officers, detectives, or have other law enforcement backgrounds. In the first three books of this series (all being released over the next few months), you’ll meet Hamilton (Ham), Lazarus (Laz), and Ashton (Ash) and the women who bring them to their knees!

VINDICATED is Hamilton and Dakota’s story. Oh, and did I mention Dakota is a stuntwoman? *insert big grin here*

 

She’s a distraction he can’t resist…

A spark ignites the moment security specialist, Hamilton Crosby, meets stuntwoman, Dakota Sherrod. She’s like no other woman he’s ever met. But Hamilton never ignores his gut, and his gut tells him to stay clear of the enticing beauty.

Dakota is an adrenaline junkie. Leaping off buildings and running through fire is just another day at the job. Hence when she sets her sights on Hamilton, she goes after him full-force. Their attraction is fierce, but he thwarts her advances at every turn. He’s the strong, silent type who operates by a set of rules, but he’ll soon realize she rarely follows rules.

Falling for Dakota catches Hamilton off guard. So does the fact that she’s attached to part of his past. A past that indicted him with shame and loss. But when Dakota becomes the target of an unknown enemy, Hamilton stops at nothing to protect her. In turn, vindication is his reward, except it comes with complications.

I have wanted to write a story about a stuntwoman for awhile, and I had a blast writing Dakota’s character! She’s bold, a little brash, and well…you’ll see. She and Hamilton are very different, but I think they balance each other well.

Here’s a little peek at Vindicated: 

Dakota snagged his attention when she revved the engine of a custom Ducati 1098S and took off down the street before slowing and circling back. She looked like a total badass on the sleek black bike that was accented in chrome with a matching helmet. The black leather jumpsuit she was wearing added to the fierce look.

“Your woman has nerves of steel, man. I can’t imagine doing half the stunts she’s performed on this project,” Justin said, admiration ringing in his voice. “How much did she tell you about this stunt?”

The question immediately put Hamilton on edge. “Not much. She just said that she’d be riding a motorcycle like one she wanted to purchase one day. I guess she’s been planning to test drive one but hadn’t yet.”

“With the way she’s handling that machine, no one would ever know she hadn’t ridden it before.”

As the words left Justin’s mouth, Dakota did a wheelie, riding a short distance with the front wheel of the bike off the ground. Considering the act was illegal on city streets, he hoped it wasn’t something she did outside of being on a movie set.

Justin chuckled. “Now she’s just showing off, probably for you.”

Hamilton’s pulse thumped loudly in his ear and his chest tightened as she popped another wheelie. When the front tire hit the ground, she sped down the street at top speed, then slowed and turned around only to do it again. This woman was going to be the death of him. He didn’t want her showing off. He just wanted her safe.

“This will be the last time I come and watch her do a stunt,” he said to Justin. “My heart can’t take this shit.”

Justin laughed and pounded him on the back, then gripped his shoulder. “Well, brace yourself, bro. You’re in for a treat.”
