“Prison chaplain? Homicide detective? Both! The combination is definitely a winner. I couldn’t stop reading the first six books in the series until I had finished them all.” -Susan D.

NY Times, USA Today Bestselling and Award-Winning Author

Power in the Blood

Ex-cop John Jordan, now a prison chaplain in the Florida Panhandle, witnesses the bloody death of Potter Correctional Institution inmate Ike Johnson. But what exactly did he witness? Murder, accident, or suicide? Jordan discovers that in the closed society of captives and captors no act goes unseen, and no one takes kindly to a cop in a collar. He soon finds his reputation, his career, and even his life are at stake.

Blood of the Lamb

John Jordan’s search for peace is interrupted by the unimaginable murder of the seven year-old adopted daughter of ex-con turned televangelist, Bobby Earl Caldwell. The murder is committed inside a locked office while Bobby Earl conducts a service in the Potter Correctional Institution chapel. The investigation forces John to confront his own fears and beliefs as he struggles to figure out his identity as well as that of the killer’s.

Flesh and Blood

In this diverse collection of cases, John investigates the Shroud of Turin, a pregnant virgin, a daring prison break, a Hurricane Katrina orphan who might just be the Second Coming, a desperate woman who sleeps with one too many men, a bloody body on the rec yard, a mystery that turns on a single observation, and a murder in which John himself is the prime suspect—all this as he deals with depression and battles alcoholism.

Body and the Blood

In one of the most baffling murder cases of his career, John Jordan actually witnesses an impossible murder—one he would swear couldn’t have happened had he not seen it with his own eyes.

Attempting to balance his fragile reconciliation with his ex-wife and the high-stakes investigation, John is soon overwhelmed and wonders if the life he’s hoped for is even possible. But when he finally figures out how the crime was committed and who’s behind it, an exciting climax follows that reveals the shocking solution, sees someone close to John shot, and carries for John the ultimate personal price—one he’s not sure he can pay.

Blood Sacrifice

Following a particularly brutal and costly case, John Jordan goes to a secluded retreat center and encounters one of the most bewildering and haunting cases of his career—the suspicious death of a troubled and sexualized young woman undergoing an exorcism.

But is he dealing with forces not even he can understand? And what will it cost him?

Rivers to Blood

John Jordan searches for an escaped prisoner, investigates a shocking murder, and confronts a sadist forcing his victims to violate themselves — all while trying to take care of his family, friends, and those in his care.

An escaped inmate. A shocking lynching. A harrowing river rescue. A thrilling mystery featuring a detective like no other!

Love is worth fighting for.

Alexa Wolving has just one rule: never give a guy a second chance. That works just fine in the safe life she’s built. In the charming town of Willowdale, her day job as a librarian balances perfectly with her evening job as a black belt instructor. But when she attracts the attention of a stalker, Alexa’s carefully built world begins to crumble.

Drew Cosimo knows he broke Alexa’s heart five years ago when he took his first Ranger assignment and disappeared from her life. Now that he’s out of the army, he’s moving back home to Willowdale. He’s not looking for a fight, but making peace would be easier if Alexa hadn’t told the entire town he was a money-grubbing jerk. Despite the tension between them, Drew is quick to offer his protection when a stalker forces Alexa from her home.

As the stalker’s attacks escalate, Alexa and Drew are forced to face their painful past and the simmering attraction between them. They must fight to save each other before everything they care about goes up in flames.

“It’s all very insightful, clever, and fun. Don’t miss this series. Tell your friends about it. Write home about it. Reread it next year.” -Paula G.

She never expected to feel the vibrations all the way to her broken heartstrings.

Diapers and baby food are uppermost in Skye Blackwood’s mind—at least until she’s alone at night. Two years is a long time, and her toy collection isn’t all that satisfying. Especially since her battery-operated lovers came from Booker, her ex.

Everyone said they married too young, and they were right. He could be a bigger part of their daughter’s life, though, so she tracks him down—and is shocked to discover he’s working at a Texas sex therapy ranch. She reserves a week of something tall, dark, and cowboy for herself, planning to use her down time to talk to Booker.

When Skye steps onto the Boot Knockers stage, Booker doesn’t hesitate to pull the plug. A giant misunderstanding may have ended things between them, but no way is he letting another cowboy into her bed.

Once alone, their animal attraction flares back to life. But time hasn’t healed the emotional wounds that still run deep. And renewing their old bond could be the biggest mistake they ever made…
