Blood Sisters (2023)
Vanessa Lillie
"Combines pulse-pounding action with Cherokee myth and customs. I loved Syd Walker, a compelling new character who's dealing with her own disturbing family history while trying to unravel the disappearance of several Native women. I hope we'll see more of Syd Walker soon!"
Redemption (2023)
(Eva 'Lightning Dance' Duran, book 1)
Deborah J Ledford
"Redemption is a page-turner! I loved reading about sheriff's deputy Eva Duran and her battle against dark forces on the reservation. Sharp characters, a great setting, and a plot that keeps you guessing. A riveting thriller that hits hard and keeps you hooked."
Panther Gap (2023)
James A McLaughlin
"Panther Gap has rattlesnakes, shoot-outs, drug cartels, and international intrigue, as well as a riveting plot and characters who will stay with you long after you finish. On top of all that, there's flat-out amazing prose and some of the best nature writing you'll find anywhere. Panther Gap is a modern classic of the American West."
