Out for Justice
by Susan Kearney

SMALL-TOWN SCANDAL

She had no experience at solving crimes, but spirited Kelly McGovern was determined to find out what really happened to her brother. Using a little grit—and a lot of sex appeal—she uncovered the awful truth: her brother's death was no accident! Turning to the only man she could trust, Kelly persuaded reformed bad boy Wade Lansing to join her private investigation. Kelly knew her brother's friend was torn between loyalty and desire, but after a few bullet-dodging incidents and citizen interrogations, his protective streak went into overdrive. But could she convince Wade that their attraction was due less to their daily brush with death, and more to raw, uninhibited desire?

Shotgun Sallys: Meting out the Texas law of the West on their own terms!



Susan Kearney's Bio

Susan Kearney used to light herself on fire four times a day. Now she does something really hot — she writes romantic suspense for Harlequin Intrigue.

While she hasn't performed her signature "fire" dive from a 10-meter platform in years, she started diving at age 10. By age 12, she'd won the New Jersey State Championship, and by college, she was a three-time All-American Diver.

While attending the University of Michigan, she earned a business degree that led to her diverse careers as, variously, a partner in a barter business, a real estate appraiser, a mover and renovator of houses, and a once- owner of three hair salons. Finally, in 1995, she sold her first book and became a full-time writer. She's currently plotting her way through her 30th novel.

Of all her careers, her favorite is wife and mother. She married her teenage sweetheart and lives with her husband, two children, and Boston terrier in sunny Florida. She now beats the heat not by diving into cold water, but with her new hobby — figure skating. Susan also enjoys writing science fiction, screenwriting, boating, and traveling to foreign countries.
