When Detective Mike Sterling left the Chicago PD and returned to his hometown of Renlend Kansas, he tried to convince himself it was so his mother could stop worrying. The truth was, even Renlend wasn’t going to vanquish the dreams that tortured him at night.
When Taryn Watts landed in Renland Kansas to design a client’s new cooking school she intended to stay just long enough to do the job and then go right back to her life on the East Coast.
When Taryn and Mike found themselves sharing a booth, one thing was certain, neither one of them thought it was a good idea. Mike still wasn’t over his ex-wife’s betrayal, and when Taryn found out Mike was a cop she wanted to run all the way back to Connecticut and never look back, but she couldn’t… Sitting outside his home late at night she watches him fight against his demons. Demons she already had too much experience with firsthand.
When Mike finally admits there is no way to outrun his demons, Tayrn knows she’ll do anything, or be anything, to help Mike find his way back.
For those of you that don’t know me, I’ll first warn you, my life is crazy and I have a very broken filter! — Oh wait! Maybe I never had a filter? Not sure, now that I think about it!
I am a Kansas girl, still happily married to my high school sweetheart from a tiny little town, and we have three busy kids. Our youngest raced motocross and I fell in love with the sport. We live in a bigger city now, but still have those roots and a farm down south, so the Finding Perfect series is close to my heart as well.
I didn’t set out to become a writer. It all started with a dream I had. After a few nights of the dream becoming more vivid each night, I began writing long-hand. A month later—I had Carter and Jesse both typed. I fell in love with it and now I get antsy if I can’t write.
Ideas now come to me usually through lyrics in songs, so my poor iPhone is loaded beyond capacity! (And iTunes loves me! $$) As you can tell, I’m pretty snarky, a self-proclaimed smartass and very proud of it.
A few of my favorite things (besides the husb & kids) my puppies! (Mia, yep, based on one of them!) Love to shoot my pistol, do archery league when can and write as much as humanly possible! I’m almost always in Wranglers or Levis, a true Ariat boot wearing, Jeep driving, coffee addict. (Yes, Jeep—Alex had one too!) There’s bits and pieces of me in some form or another in all the books. Not on purpose, just works out that way LMAO!
With the kids going in different directions and helping husb run our company, I don’t get to many conferences a year, but I love to chat with readers, many of who have become close friends just from a single message on FB or email. If you have questions, I’m pretty candid, ask away! I love to talk.
