Will he forgive her betrayal?
Darby Walsh made the difficult decision to betray Gage Killion to the police so she could get into rehab for the sake of her unborn child. Six years later, she’s managed to stay on track with the help of a wonderful woman who treats Leo like the grandson she never had. When the zip line cable Darby is using pulls free, sending her crashing into a tree, Darby doesn’t think it’s an accident. And when Gage Killion arrives on the scene, he’s her first suspect. She doesn’t tell him about their son, until it becomes clear that the drug dealers they helped put away, are now seeking revenge.
Gage can’t believe he has a five-year-old son. He realizes the baby was the reason Darby had turned him over to the authorities, and he doesn’t blame her. Ironically, being in jail turned his life around, mainly because of Pastor Davies Bible Study group. Now that Gage knows about Leo, he wants to be a part of the boy’s life, but first he needs to protect Darby, and help find those responsible for the multiple attacks against them. Will he convince Darby her next decision should be to accept his love?
I’m often asked when I started writing and I have to be honest, I can’t remember when I wasn’t writing. I loved books as a kid and like many authors I ran out of stories that I liked to read so I began to make up my own. I wrote my first teen novel when I was thirteen and my first romance when I was seventeen. Of course neither manuscript was very good, but I never gave up and after I finished Graduate school I decided to take some time for myself and get back to my writing. I’m so glad I did! I grew up reading faith based books by Grace Livingston Hill so writing for Love Inspired Suspense is a dream come true. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them. I currently live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with my husband of thirty-three years. My daughter Nicole is married to a wonderful man named Mike and my son Jonathan is a Registered Nurse at the same hospital where I work. I’m so blessed to have such a wonderful family. I’m a dog lover and had to put my Westie named Mac down a year or so ago. I still miss him but now have a chance to dog sit for my sisters and brother. I try to incorporate pets in my my stories as much as possible In May of 2017 I was the humble recipient of the Wisconsin Romance Writers Lifetime Achievement Award. I’m blessed to be a member of such an amazing group!
