Book Description:

She wants her past hidden...

Amy Kincaid is running from her controlling ex-husband, who will stop at nothing to find her. With a new identity and a new job as a housekeeper, she just wants to be left alone to raise her daughter. Then Eddie Fitzgerald rolls into town and turns her world upside down.

He’s in the business of exposing the truth...

Eddie Fitzgerald, L.A.P.D.'s finest, lives for his job and nothing else, until he decides to take a break at the family summer home and is held at gunpoint by the most annoying, sassiest woman to ever cross his path. But something is off about Amy, and the more he learns about her, the more he’s convinced she’s a fugitive.

When her past catches up to her, Amy has no choice but to trust Eddie. Unfortunately, Eddie has demons of his own, and struggles with the decision to protect her or uphold the law.

The truth takes them down a deadly path, and only love can save them.


He had an unforgettable face. Sharp cheekbones, square jaws and piercing gray eyes that didn’t say much. His dark wavy hair was cut short, but not too short. Unruly strands rebelled and curled across his brow and at his nape. His skin was bronze, like he spent time outdoors. The turned down waistband indicated no tan lines either. A nudist? Interesting.
“About last night,” she said casually, noticing he hadn’t touched his coffee. “I don’t usually pull a gun on unsuspecting people, and I make a really mean cup of coffee.” She slid the steaming cup closer. “Go on, try it.”
She’d hoped for a smile, but got a frown instead. Mr. Fitzgerald was obviously not a morning person. How long was he planning on staying? Baron and Kara Fitzgerald tended to visit for a few days to a week before heading back to L.A.
“Excuse me for asking a dumb question, but who is Raelynn?” Eddie asked.
“My daughter.”
He looked around, his gaze zeroing on the toys piled by the door leading to the patio before coming back to her. “How old is she?”
“Almost five going on thirty. Her birthday is in two weeks.”
“Where is she?”
“Still asleep, but she’ll be up any minute. Why do you ask?”
“I’d like us to have an adult discussion without a child clouding anyone’s judgment.”
He was going to say he didn’t need a housekeeper again. She just knew it. “Okay, but FYI, I have an iron-clad contract, so if you are thinking of kicking us out, I will sue you from here to kingdom come and win,” she said with a confidence she didn’t feel.
Eddie scowled. “Why would I kick you out?”
“Because you said you didn’t need me last night and that I should take a hike.”
“I never said that.”
“That’s what I heard.” She picked up her coffee mug with an unsteady hand and sipped, her gaze not shifting from his. “Why don’t we talk outside? You go put on a shirt or something while I dish up your breakfast.”
Eddie stared down at his bare chest as though realizing for the first time he was shirtless. A sheepish expression softened his features and heat coiled in Amy’s stomach, surprising her. It shot up a notch when he turned, giving her a view of his back. Powerful broad shoulders. Narrow hips. Killer ass. The man had a beautiful body.
Just before he disappeared into the hallway leading to the master bedroom, Eddie turned and caught her in the act. Without slowing down, he raised the mug to his lips and sipped, heat flashing in his eyes.


Hi and thank you for inviting me to stop by your site on the blog tour for FOREVER HERS, the 5th FITZGERALD book.

1.    Where did you get the idea for the novel?

Eddie appears in almost all the previous Fitzgerald books, so I knew him pretty well. Eddie is a protector. He lives and breathes his job, hates authority, so he bends rules to achieve his goal. In other words, he’s the best cop you want watching your back. Finding a mate for him was fun.

2.    Your title. Who came up with it? Did you ever change your title?
Katrina Whittaker, the Aussie lady who beta-reads for me and runs my Facebook fan page, comes up with my titles. She’s really good. She came up with a list and I chose one.

3.    Which came first, the title or the novel? 

I always finish the book first before naming it.

4.    Since becoming a writer, what’s the most exciting thing to ever happen to you?

Oh my, I have so many of those. The best was getting my first letter from a book club reading my book (YA).

5.    What book are you currently reading or what was the last book you read?

I am reading Kelly Hashway’s Touch of Death. The last book was an old favorite, Dance with the Devil by Sherrilyn Kenyon

6.    What was your first book that you ever wrote (very first one you wrote, not published)?

A picture book about Goldilocks. More like Goldilocks before she met the three bears. My kids loved it

7.    What is your writing process?

I spend weeks thinking about my characters and the plot. When the story gels in my head, I sit and write…write…and write. Does that make me a panster? I don’t think so. But I’m not what you call a traditional plotter either. Somehow, once the story gels in my head and I start to write, it just unfolds. I have an amazing way of memorizing my characters’ traits. I have 4 WHIPs brewing in my head right now and I can tell you the backgrounds of all the major players in a snap

8.    Who are your favorite authors of all time?

Jude Deveraux, Sylvia Day, J. R. Ward, Sherrilyn Kenyon and many more.

9.    At a book signing, do you just sign your name or do you write a note? How do you come up with stuff to say? 

I have never had a book signing gig, but when I autograph copies of my books to readers, I always write a note.

10. What is something people would be surprised to know about you?

That I was born in Kenya

11. How do you react to a bad review?

Before they’d get me down and kill my mojo for a day or two. Now I just shrug them off. Not everyone can like the same story.

12. How did you celebrate the sale of your first book?

I took my family out to dinner.
