Deputy United States Marshal Mitch Knox apprehends fugitives for a living. His calm, cool, collected attitude and devastatingly handsome good looks earn him a well-deserved bad boy reputation, both in the field and out. While away on an assignment, he blows off some steam at a notorious Dallas nightclub. Solving the case that has plagued him for months takes a sudden backseat to finding out all there is to know about the gorgeous, shy blond sitting alone at the bar.
Texas State Trooper Cody Turner is moving up the ranks, well on his way to his dream of being a Texas Ranger. While on a two-week mandatory vacation, he plans to relax and help out on his family’s farm. Mitch is the last distraction Cody needs, but the tatted up temptation that walks into the bar and steals his baseball cap is too hard to ignore.
As Mitch’s case gains nationwide attention, how will he convince the sexy state trooper that giving him a chance won’t jeopardize his life’s plan...especially when the evil he’s tracking brings the hate directly to his doorstep, threatening more than just their careers.
Mitch Knox is a Deputy US Marshall that marches to the beat of his own drum. He doesn't play well with others or respond well to authority, it's why he's a US Marshall and more of a loner than an FBI agent. He doesn't wear suits or work with them, he prefers jeans, boots and his quirky worded T-shirts that say things like, "I'd Bottom You So Hard". He is, however, damn good at his job. But this latest case he's working is wearing him thin, almost as thin as the leads are. A killer is out there targeting successful gay men and Mitch is determined to stop him.
Cody Turner is a State Trooper in Texas that hopes to became a Ranger. A job promotion just moved him one step closer to that goal, and he remains focused on fulfilling his dream. That is until one tall, dark, handsome, extremely sexy and cocky US Marshall walks into his life and turns it upside down. The blonde haired, blue eyed, tall drink of water has always put his family and his career first. But Mitch stirs things inside him that make Cody want more than just a career. He goes out of his way to ruin the relationship before it even gets off the ground though, convinced that someone as gorgeous and successful as Mitch couldn't possibly want him for more than anything but a casual lay.
But Deputy Knox is relentless when he sets his mind on something, and right now his focus is on Cody. The two travel across Texas and DC while Mitch pursues a killer and a boyfriend, with equal resolve. With his attention split between the two an important detail in the case is missed, a detail that could prove dangerous and deadly.
This was a solid story with well developed three dimensional characters and an engaging story line. While there was the danger and mystery of the killer that seems to constantly stay one step ahead of Mitch, his partner and the FBI, there was also romance, passion and a decent amount of humor. From the moment Cody catches Mitch's eye in that bar, the chemistry is electric, but Cody doesn't give in easily. His body aches to accept all the attention Mitch showers him with, but his mind keeps second guessing Mitch's intentions and the possible outcomes. Mitch even says to him several times throughout, "Stop over thinking it, Cowboy." because the two are so intuned to each other straight away.
If you are a fan of strong alpha males that can conform and compliment each other, well written and intriguing storylines that include top notch secondary characters and some oh so sexy, steamy, passionate man love... don't walk, run over to your favorite e-book retailer and get you a copy. But be sure to read Double Full first and start the journey with Mitch from the beginning.

I live in the suburbs of Dallas where it's true, the only thing bigger than an over active imagination, may be women's hair!
Usually, I try for funny. Humor is a major part of my life - I love to laugh, and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations - regardless of the situation, but jokes are a tricky deal... I don't want to offend anyone and jokes tend to offend. So instead I'm going to tell you about Kindle.
I tragically lost my sixteen year old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I'll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died - weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn't have to be alone.
That time in my life was terrible. It's everything you think it would be times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have it all ripped away so suddenly broke me.
Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness - it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon released their brand new Kindle ereader. She had no idea it was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it.. It never happened.
Through the course of that crippling event I was lucky enough to begin to write with a dear friend in the fan fiction world of Facebook. She got me through those dark days with her unwavering support and friendship. There wasn't a time she wasn't there for me. Sometimes together and sometimes by myself, we built a world where Kindle lives and stands for peace, love and harmony. It's its own kind of support group. I know without question I wouldn't be here today without her.
