 Lethal is a contemporary romantic suspense novel set in sultry Louisiana. One sleepy day, widow Honor Gillette is making cupcakes for her father‑in‑law's birthday with her four‑year‑old daughter Emily when a desperate, dangerous stranger arrives in her yard and takes them hostage.  He is Lee Coburn, the suspect in a local mass murder.  Honor is afraid for her daughter's life, willing to do whatever the man wants to keep her safe.

Coburn wants to find out what her deceased police officer husband was hiding and how it relates to seven people's murders by a corrupt cop and his brother, both enforcers for a shady figure called the Bookkeeper.  Neither Honor nor Coburn expect the explosive attraction and burgeoning love that develops between them.

Lethal will keep the reader on the edge of her seat.  Lee Coburn is sexy, edgy, dangerous, and sure to please a reader. This book provides plenty of twists and turns with ruthless bad guys who have met their match in a hero like Coburn.  The question of how far the corruption extends that Coburn has risked his life to expose makes for exciting reading with an equally compelling love story.
