Police officer Tess Fuller has her hands full trying to maintain order in a poorly-resourced small mountain town overrun by the beautiful, arrogant and lawless Bycraft family.

Meet the Author

I live in beautiful Queensland in Australia. I started writing in 2009 because I wanted to do something creative and haven't stopped since! I have two series of books:

The Heller series (first book Heller - free!) features the frequently outlandish adventures of security officer, Tilly Chalmers, and her complicated relationship with her beautiful, mysterious and intense boss, Heller. There will be seven books in total in this series.

The Little Town series (first book Blood Ties - free!) features police officer, Tess Fuller, and her struggle to survive a long-standing vendetta with the feral Bycraft family and at the same time manage the tense relationship between her new partner, Finn Maguire, and her boyfriend, Jake Bycraft. There will be five books in total in this series.

My author dream is to one day write a short story (which for me will probably be about 50,000 words!) where Tilly & Heller meet Tess & Finn. What a story that would be! Maybe over the end-of-year break???

I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoyed writing them! I'd love to hear your feedback, so why not email me at: jdn.author@gmail.com

Blood Ties 4.2 out of 5 based on 4 ratings. 864 reviews.

First of all, I can't believe this book was a free download - There are 1,044 pages!! The Bycrafts have bullied and harassed (and even murdered) the Fuller women for generations. When Tess Fuller returns home to Little Town to help take care of her dying father, she is the entire Bycraft Clan's number one victim. Usually, a family has at least one black sheep, but the Bycraft's are the opposite ... there is only one good guy - Jake. Even with the well know feud between the families, they fall in love. Blood Ties is filled with adventure, challenges, and of course romance!! Will their love be strong enough to overcome the hatred of their families or will Tess be this generation's Fuller victim??

Honestly, I couldn't put this book down and I love it that I have it on my Nook Color so I can re-read it again. Good job JD Nixon.

I read the book Blood Ties first and enjoyed it so much that I looked to see what other books this author had available and read Heller the very next day. I am waiting on pins and needles for the sequels in both series! I generally have a hard time reading romances with "tough" women. Not that I like weak or flaky heroines but more because I love having strong lead males taking care of women I can relate to. The author was able to make her characters stand out and be not only physically strong but emotionally which drew me in. The men are completely quirky, strong, and yummy. JD Nixon -I need these sequels so please, please continue writing!

Highly recommend. D.M.

There is not enough I can say about this book or the author aside from AMAZING. I am not good at really leaving a review that will tell you what the book is about because I will be a spoiler and I don't like that so I won't do it to you. I will say that if you want a book that will draw you completely take the time and read this book or any of her other books. You will not be disappointed.

I loved this book couldn't put it down. I did not care much for the ending, but overall it was a great read. I would definitely recommend reading this book.

This was totally different from what I normally read and it was great! I sure hope a sequel is planned. I highly recommend this to all adults. I don't recommend it to any one under 17 due some of the violent scenes and sexual content . The best thing is it was FREE

I liked the story a lot! Honestly, my only complaint is the ending. It just stops and I was waiting for more. I saw reviews complaining about the storyline being slow, use of cursing, etc. I thought the development of the characters was great. I believe the cursing actually helped show the characters true personalities. I would have gladly paid for this book and will be buying the rest of the series!

Loved this book!! I got this as a free e-book, and wasn't expecting much but boy was I surprised. It is not the usual type of book that I read but I couldn't put it down. I looked up the author and purchased all her other e-books (either free or $1.99). I was very surprised that it was a new author because IMHO it is superb writing. I didn't mind the swearing at all. Keep up the good work JD!!!

This was a very good book. I was a bit let down by the ending but i would read another book by this author.

Nixon's idea of entertaining topics is limited to one woman getting the poo kicked out of her consistently. I only read to the end to find out if someone would just put her out of her misery...

I cannot believe this was a free book. I am completely hooked on JD Nixon after reading this book. The main character was instantly someone who I fell in love with and was rooting for through the book. I had to immedietely buy the second book in the series and am waiting for the third to come out.

I literally could not stop reading this book. As soon as I was finished, I purchased all the books in her Heller series and her Little Town series. I am anxiously waiting for her next book!

I very much enjoyed this book. It was a page turner, and I finished in 3 days despite it being a 1000 page book. Most of the writing was quite good, and I also enjoyed the regional influence with all of the Australian slang. The cast of characters was extensive but the author did a good job helping the reader to keep everyone straight.

This book was great and different. The ending was an obvious set up for further books and I for one cannot wait !

I started this as a last resort since I was stuck in a car with the cousins and had nothing else to read on my nook since I had read everthing else on my nook. Boy was I in for a suprise. I fell in love with the series and got the second book before I even finished the first book. I have read both series, Heller and this one and fell in love with them both.

Another great series by JD Nixon. I love her characters and how her book contain mystery, humor, romance and suspense all at the same time. Started with the Heller series and read all 4 back to back. Did the same with this series. Cant wait to read then next books for both.

Ten Stars for this one! Tess has been doing her job as a small town cop in her own way for years. Her old boss didn't care as long as she didn't bother him. Now Sarge arrives ready to run things by the book in a town where the troublemakers could not find the book if they wanted to; they don't. Rules are not made for Bycrafts except for the sweet Jake whom Tess loves. All of the Bycraft men are gorgeous and sexy, but only Jakey is as good as he looks. Between training under Sarge, and training him a little on the way, Tess deals with the challenges of limited resources, a slightly jealous lover, and of course, the irritation and down right danger from the Bycraft family. The action is tough but not terrifying or unnecessarily graphic. J.D. Nixon gives her characters "character". They're not perfect, you may not even love everything they do, but you will love Tess and Finn, and maybe Abe, Jake, even the Super! Real people make Tessie's world a real world. Love this book. I wasn't sure I would even like it from the description, but I had to try it because I love her Heller books. Now I am so glad it is a series. J. D. Nixon is an amazing writer. I anxiously await the third book, Blood Sport which should be out late Aug. or early Sept.
