Blending seductive romance with explosive suspense, bestselling author Kathy Clark burns up the pages in a captivating novel about a real-life hero and a gorgeous lawyer who are reunited under chilling circumstances..
Homeland Security agent Luke Archer returns home to Texas on a dangerous mission—a hands-on fight against a terrorist organization that has infiltrated the United States—yet it’s a chance encounter with his high-school sweetheart that really gets his blood pumping. Luke considers himself a lone wolf who doesn’t need a woman in his life. But as memories of their sweet, innocent affair stir him body and soul, Luke starts to wonder whether he should give love another chance.
A high-powered attorney, Bella Shaw has never forgotton how Luke left her behind in Austin to chase his dreams. But when she’s being totally honest with herself, Bella can’t deny that Luke is the one man she ever truly wanted. Though he tells her that the terrorists are using her land, she’s more worried about defending her heart from the advances of the sinfully sexy lawman. Still, Bella is willing to trust him again—if Agent Archer proves he’s worthy.
Kathy Clark has always been a storyteller. She completed her first novel when she was four years old and self-published it the same year, decades before Amazon birthed the Kindle. The Little Black Horse That Ran Away was self-illustrated and completely sold out of its first printing. Thanks Mom!
Years later, Kathy’s first adult book was published by Dell. Since then, she had a total of twenty-three novels published by Dell, Crown, and Harlequin. With her husband Bob Wernly as a co-writer, they published (both traditionally and epub) an additional fourteen novels.
Nine of these fourteen books were self-published in the romantic suspense, young adult and erotic romance genres. The remaining five published by Random House LLC as the Denver Heroes and Austin Heroes, released in 2015 and throughout 2016.
The freedom to be creative and experiment with ideas and genres has made self-publishing an amazing process. The author team are currently developing a new contemporary romance series (with a suspense backdrop) titled Breathless. High altitude, high stakes, and high romance, the series will begin in 2017 with the first book, Fools Gold. The series is set in Cripple Creek, Colorado, a colorful historic town as famous for the huge amount of gold found there as it is for its Old West-style casinos.
Their young adult genre series, Time Shifters, is a time travel romance-mystery series. The fifth book in the award winning series is planned for a late 2016 release.
Finally, their new adult romantic suspense series, Scandals, currently has the first three books released
With two people developing ideas, plotting, researching, writing and editing, Kathy and Bob are both busy and productive. To be perfectly honest, Kathy and Bob would rather be riding horses, sitting on a sandy beach, watching movies or plays, and playing a round of golf every few days. But the voices in their heads insist on coming out, so they keep writing.
I will start this the same way I start all my reviews with a thank you to Netgalley and Random House Loveswept for providing us with a copy of this books so that we could bring your this review.
Oh man Kathy Clark wrote a second chance love with fun and action and hot sexy scenes. Ok I know that isn’t my whole review but I wont lie I will gush over Kathy Clark and what she’s written. I mentioned once before that she got a fan for life and I am completely serious. This book she just shows me why I like her so much. Bella is a strong character who even though she has loved Luke since she was a little girl and lost him as a teen to college, she did what she had to, to become an independent strong woman. She has a fantastic career and is growing to higher levels each and every moment. Luke isn’t like his brothers who is used to action and adventure each and every day. He is used to looking at a computer screen to protect the country. I thought it was great that he is willing to do anything to save Bella. I have to say I didn’t like the Judge at the beginning of this book, but he was definitely a redeemable character. I think what helped me feel like like the Judge was redeemable was that he saw how his actions hurt his daughter, partly because the same was done to him and Grammy. I am sad to know that this series is now also over because I could just keep reading about the Archers forever, but look forward to the next series Kathy Clark has coming.
I give this book 5 adventurous kisses…
Happy Reading… Adri
