Overview

Lacy DeGeorgio never imagined she'd have to be responsible for anyone but herself. She's strong, stubborn and fiercely independent. She needs no one. She's a woman determined to do things her way, on her own. But when a freak boating accident takes her sister Hannah's life, Lacy finds herself not only back in her hometown of Lake George, New York, but in a custody battle for her eleven-year-old nephew, Andy. Just when things couldn't get any worse, pesky State Trooper Frank Harmon starts showing up, tearing down all her defenses, making her want things she's never wanted before. She'll trust him with her nephew, but can she trust him with her heart?

New York State Trooper Frank Harmon is a man of honor and duty. He's always done things by the book, believing the law always works in favor of those who uphold it. Until the day he took a domestic disturbance call at the DeGeorgio trailer, and even though he knew something bad was about to happen, he had to walk away. Two days later, he pulled Hannah DeGeorgio's body from the icy cold waters of Lake George, changing his life forever. He sets out to make sure Hannah's killer is brought to justice and in the process makes a home for a family he thought he never wanted.

Meet the Author

Jen Talty co-created Cool Gus Publishing with NY Times Best-Selling Author Bob Mayer, and runs the technical side of the company. She is a published romance author, and teaches Creative Writing at various writing conferences across the country.

Jen grew up in Rochester, NY, a city with the highest murder rate per capita in the entire state. With notorious cases such as The Alphabet Murders, The Genesee River Killer (Arthur Shawcross), The Murder of Kali Ann Poulton by Mark Christi, and the case of funeral homes stealing body parts from corpses awaiting cremation, Jen became fascinated by the darker side of human nature. She brings this fascination to her romances, creating dark villains who wreak havoc on the hero and heroine, and producing page-turning suspense.

Jen received a BS degree in Business Education with a concentration in Marketing and Sales from Nazareth College of Rochester. She taught Business Applications at both the high school level and in Continuing Education. She was a co-leader of Distributed Education Clubs of America and worked with students in developing marketing, sales and public speaking skills. After leaving the teaching profession, she worked as a product and sales trainer for various hardware and software companies such as 3Comm, HP and McAfee, and was the regional merchandising representative for Buena Vista Entertainment.

Cool Gus Publishing was formed as a vehicle to launch Bob Mayer's backlist into digital publication. It was built on the notion that writers produce the product, readers consume the product and everything else is in between. The 21st century has brought the rise of the digital author. It is time to take control.

Write It Forward, a division of Cool Gus Publishing was formed because both Bob Mayer and Jen Talty believe the two most important people in the publishing business are the writer and the reader. The key to being successful in a business where 99% of what is submitted or self-published is rejected or fails is education and understanding. Write It Forward is dedicated to giving writers the tools and information they need to increase their chances of success. It truly is a great time to be an author.

    Great Read!

    The first book in this series was recommended by a friend. I read it and loved it! Didn't know this book was out until I saw it pop up on Nook First's list of compelling reads. I'm a sucker for an awesome hero and Frank definitely lived up to my expectations. If you like suspense, a believable plot, and conflicted characters buy this today! You won't regret it.

    Seeing death leaves a mark on our soul. A mark that can't be er

    Seeing death leaves a mark on our soul. A mark that can't be erased, only recognized as another defining part of our ever developing character. How we accept and define that mark is up to us. In this story, Frank's soul was marred by such an event, but acceptance is eluding him even though he reaches out to tame its heart wrenching grip. Determined to change its plight on his soul, he keeps searching for answers to why the death happened in the first place.
    Being a young and attractive man is certainly not an obstacle for Frank in the romance department, but sometimes finding 'the one' is difficult. When Lacy entered Frank's life, seeing her as being 'the one' was difficult, especially when life makes you hide who you really are for fear of losing her for ever. Frank certainly has some issues, but they are all related to that mark on his soul.
    Lacy gave up on finding 'the one' to help her sister. Now life's course changing events have clouded her ability to see the big picture above the details. And she seems bent on depriving herself, when she can stay in control, as a way to beg forgiveness from someone who can no longer give that to her.
    As both character's lives intertwine, their ultimate goals appear to be the same on the surface, but in reality at the core of their souls, they are quite different. Each seeks a release, a comfort for their anguish and despair, thinking it will come with the attainment of their goal. Then as with most romance novels the two slowly realize they are looking at the wrong details that make up the whole picture.
    It's actually a pretty good story. The other characters brought into play provide the diversity, adventure emotional havoc and suspense. The story line keeps moving at a good pace and even has you guessing at times as to what that person means overall, or what will happen, or is this character involved in this way. You know what I mean. The child character I think was really well done. You could actually see the petulance on his face and hurt in his eyes. I totally fell for that child and wanted to protect him as much as Lacy and Frank did. Jen's development of that character was a bright star. I didn't feel quite the same about the adult leads, but I think I just have a soft spot for kids.
    This was an enjoyable story, and well worth the time to read it. Thanks Jen!

    Highly Recommend

    I loved this book. I had not read any of Jen Talty's books before. It started out, as a book that I saw going toward a romance--or at least a "romance wanna be". By the time I got into it, I saw it going more toward a romance-mystery. It had great suspense, and I just couldn't put it down to see what was going to happen next. I felt myself in the position of the characters. I would love to read some more of Jen Talty's books.

    Great Storyline :-)

    This was a great book and the suspense kept you reading as to how the characters all played a part in this story. I am also reading another book by the same author and she keeps you on your toes wanting to know the whole truth. It is difficult to put this authors books down.

    I would recommend reading it.

    It's a mystery with love and sex. Maybe too much touchy/feely, but a pretty good read.
