Baltimore, Maryland, is a city in alarming distress. Rising violence is fanning the flames of public outrage, and all law enforcement agencies, including the FBI, are catching blame. Thus the FBI’s latest ideas to improve public relations: a municipal softball league and workshops for community leaders. But the new commitments just mean more time Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett have to spend apart when they’re happily exploring how to be more than by-the-book partners.

Then the latest spate of crime explodes in their faces—literally—throwing the city, the Bureau, and Ty and Zane’s volatile partnership both in and out of the office into chaos. They’re hip-deep in trouble, trying to track down bombers and bank robbers in the dark with very few clues, and the only way to reach the light at the end of the tunnel together requires Ty and Zane to close their eyes and trust each other to the fiery end.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!
An update on the Brady family: Everyone is doing well. Both boys who were admitted to the hospital due to problems with smoke inhalation are home and Terrence (the dad) said his daughter is expected to come home before Christmas. The doctors are really hopeful for a speedy recovery for her because she is so young and her skin is healing really well which should allow for minimal scaring [sic]. Terrence was excited about getting back to work and getting things back to normal. Also, everyone was more than grateful for our (that AT&T workplace) help.

My aunt's work group collected $200 for them and also delivered 'an enormous amount of clothing, toys, and household items'.

That's an entire building of AT&T workers. But to this point, WE have collected $624.42 in gift cards, Paypal donations, and checks. And I haven't checked my mail today and I know I'm expecting several more cards. How freaking awesome is that? (The odd number is due to conversion rates *g*)

As far as physical donations, I have gone through my closet, my daughter's toys, and my husband's closet to gather some clothing, shoes, and coats. I took several of the bitty's presents which are unopened and intend to send them as well. I cleared off our desktop computer, which is admittedly about 5 years old, and I plan to donate it. Several locals are bringing children's clothing, and I hope to get all of this to them before Christmas.

My readers and friends are awesome.

By the close of 1882, the inhabitants of the American West had earned their reputation as untamed and dangerous. The line between heroes and villains is narrow and indistinct. The concept that a man may only kill if backed into a corner is antiquated. Lives are worth less than horses. Treasures are worth killing for. And the law is written in the blood of those who came before. The only men staving off total chaos are the few who take the letter of the law at its word and risk their lives to uphold it. But in the West, the rules aren't always played according to Hoyle.

US Marshals Eli Flynn and William Henry Washington are escorting two prisoners to New Orleans for trial when they discover there’s more to the infamous shootist Dusty Rose and the enigmatic man known only as Cage than merely being outlaws. When forces beyond the marshals’ control converge on the paddlewheeler they have hired to take them downriver, they must choose between two dangers: playing by the rules at any cost or trusting the very men they are meant to bring to justice.

IN NEED OF HELP
Last week my aunt told me about a family in the area that had a house fire. They have five children, the youngest is a 4 month old girl in the burn unit. The other four are boys, ages 2-5. They lost everything. I'm trying to gather items and donations for them for Christmas and I'd like your help.

They need everything. If you have old children's clothing, boys sizes 2T to 5T, or toys your children no longer play with, please consider donating those items. I will even be willing to travel a reasonable distance to pick things up so you won't have to spend money on shipping. Especially good and easy to send would be gift cards; I'm telling people Wal-Mart since they can buy an array of things from food to clothing to Christmas gifts for their kids.

Their sizes:

Mother: size 4-6, medium tops, size 8 shoes

Father: size 28-30, medium shirts, size 11 shoes

Boys: 3T, 4T, 5T, shoes, 8, 9, 10

Girl: 4-6 months, shoes 6mo

I've also got a Paypal account for people to send monetary donations to: abiroux@gmail.com

I want to help these people, but I need help to do it right. Please share this link if you're willing. If you send something, or order a gift card online, please send it to my address:

Abigail Roux
P.O. Box 552
Wallburg, NC 27373-0552
USA

Let me know, either by comment or e-mail, that you've sent something so it won't be lost in the shuffle. Include a name and city/state/country so I can sign it to the card I intend to include, letting them know how many people cared about them and wanted to help.

If you donate something, even just $1, I will give you a free e-book of your choice from my backlist.

Excerpts!


The Blurb:

Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett are back on the job, settled into a personal and professional relationship built on fierce protectiveness and blistering passion. Now they’re assigned to impersonate two members of an international smuggling ring—an out-and-proud married couple—on a Christmas cruise in the Caribbean. As their boss says, surely they’d rather kiss each other than be shot at, and he has no idea how right he is.

Portraying the wealthy criminals requires a particular change in attitude from Ty and Zane while dealing with the frustrating waiting game that is their assignment. As it begins to affect how they treat each other in private, they realize there’s more to being partners than watching each other’s backs, and when the case takes an unexpected turn and threatens Ty’s life, he and Zane will have to navigate seas of white lies and stormy secrets, including some of their own.
