The Rookie by Julie Miller

Suddenly something was more important to rookie officer Josh Taylor than busting a campus drug ring and making detective. Because when Josh's undercover investigation strangely intersected with his older and pregnant professor, Rachel Livesay, sparks of danger—and passion—ignited.

Rachel had no one to turn to until Josh vowed to protect her from the sperm donor who threatened to snatch her newborn child from her arms. But Josh was her "student," not a knight in shining armor—and falling for him could be deadly for them both!

About the Author

Julie attributes her passion for writing romance to all those fairy tales she read growing up, and shyness. Encouragement from her family to write down those feelings she couldn't express became a love for the written word. She gets continued support from her fellow members of the Prairieland Romance Writers, where she serves as the resident "grammar goddess."

This award-winning author and teacher has published several paranormal romances in addition to her beloved romantic suspense. Inspired by the likes of Agatha Christie and Encyclopedia Brown, Julie believes that the only thing better than a good mystery is a good romance.

Born and raised in Missouri, she now lives in Nebraska with her husband, son, and smiling guard dog, Maxie.

Chapter 4 As five rogues shouldered their way through the forest branches, Willowfur thought she heard the faint sound of a starling. Ashblaze whipped around, eyes wide. "Whose there?" he called, his voice echoing. The small black cat crouched down. "I am. My name is Scourge, leader of BloodClan," he meowed. His voice was high-pitched and eerie, like splintering ice. Ashblaze opened his jaws to say something, but Scourge continued. "This is my mate, Willowfur." He pointed with his tail to a well-muscled tan she-cat with a white underbelly. Ashblaze listened, ears pricked. "And this is Bone," he mewed. A massive black-and-white tom with an orange collar studded with teeth, similar to Scourge's, emerged. A long scar ran between his eyes. "Darkheart and Brick are traveling with us," he meowed. Darkheart, a bluish-gray and white she-cat wrapped her tail around her paws. A thin russet she-cat with green eyes crouched down. It must've been Brick. "So, why have you come here, Scourge?" Ashblaze rasped. "A few moons ago," Scourge mewed, "Tigerstar, a forest cat, promised me territory in the forest." Scourge narrowed his ice-blue eyes. "But he didn't," he finished in his thin, icy voice. "And?" Ashblaze meowed, his eyes narrowing to slits. Scourge rose to his haunches. "BloodClan shall rule the forest and the Twolegplace. Since Tigerstar has broken his promise of territory, I shall claim it. You can fight us for it. But you shall lose." "You can't take over the forest!" Ashblaze protested. "We shall take it by force, then." Scourge's eyes were like shards of ice as he spoke. "My Clan has strong warriors!" "BloodClan has very strong warriors," Scourge rasped, his voice cold. "My Clan can outnumber you!" Ashblaze hissed. "There are many more rogues where we come from," Scourge snarled. "My cats multiply every moon if not less." With this, Scourge rose to his paws. "Scourge," Willowfur meowed, padding up to her mate's flank, "these cats have chosen to go against us. They don't know how foolish that is." Willowfur's voice was eerie and woven. "True," Scourge meowed, rasping a tongue over his single white paw. "They shall not succeed." As the rogues spoke these words, Ashblaze watched as they departed the forest. BloodClan would fight.

Officer Josh Taylor is undercover to expose a dangerous drug ring when he does the forbidden, he falls for his professor. Will he be exposed or will he catch the drug dealers and why is the professor now receiving threats? This was a great story. I had no clue until the author revealed who the bad guy was. I definitely recommend this story to romance readers.
