Breezee's Shared Custody

Divorce, Murder, and the Dog

Hot to trot kindergarten teacher Sheila Davis shares custody of her ex-husband Dave’s dog. She finagled the shared custody arrangement into the divorce decree so she could keep contact with him. Intimate contact. No matter how hard he tries, he can’t resist her charms. That’s one of the things she loves about him. Except for his unwillingness to share her, she loves everything about him. But she needs variety and excitement in her life. That’s why she has Dave, plus a distinguished older gentleman—Dave’s boss—and a mysterious bad-boy body builder. Sheila has it all, until Dave gets a girlfriend. 


Dave’s mother had hoped that he and Sheila would provide her with grandchildren, but that dream ended with the divorce. He never told his mother the reason for the divorce, even though she’s always badgering him to beg Sheila to take him back. He hadn’t known about Sheila’s issues when he married her, only filing for divorce when she refused to change. He even offered professional help, but to no avail. Now he has a promising new love interest. Things are looking up until his boss is murdered and he’s blamed for it.

Baby Grand Legacy

Formerly titled Baby Grand: The Beginning
 

Baby Grand, Book 1


For as long as Kevin could remember, his parents were hot for each other. Were, being the optimum word. Lately they’re more like cordial. Kevin isn’t sure which he prefers. He suspects there’s something going on with his father, feels animosity from him often and isn’t sure what’s behind it. Maybe it’s because Kevin has no interest in becoming a doctor, like his parents, or that he’s so different from his father. Kevin’s concerns build when he’s told that he’ll be going away to stay with grandparents he only met once, people his father doesn’t even like. The situation turns strangely worse when Kevin becomes a hero. His mother is proud, his father angry. As they argue about him, parts of a scandal are revealed. Kevin wants to know more, wants to know if his parents will stay married. Before long, Kevin is sitting at a dinner table full of strangers, including a brilliant and beautiful girl who treats him like an equal but opposite. She also knows everything about his family’s supposed scandal—things that his grandparents have been sworn to secrecy about—and is willing to tell, if Kevin agrees to her terms.

Baby Grand, Book 2

 

Kevin Johnson and his grandparents, plus his girlfriend and hers, are launching his racing career. They’re doing it on the sly so his stressed-out, on-the-brink-of-divorce parents won’t find out, but Kevin is getting a little stressed-out himself. Everyone expects him to continue the family legacy where his great-grandfather left off, but that was over eighty years ago. None of them had been alive during the Golden Age of Sports, when the legendary driver did miraculous things behind the wheel. How can Kevin live up to that?

Baby Grand Opportunity

Formerly titled Baby Grand III: The Big Time
 

Baby Grand, Book 3

 

Kevin Johnson’s parents sign him up to drive for Baldacci racing, a partnership headed by football great Andy Baldacci. But Andy’s own partners sell him out, leaving controlling interest with a company that Kevin wants nothing to do with. He’s under contract, though, and has no say in the matter. His girlfriend is even less pleased when she's sent packing and banned from being seen with him in public.


They can’t, however, stop her from being with Kevin on his own time, but he's going on the road for extended periods. So she pitches her chassis set-up skills to another team, to stay in the game and keep an eye on the competition … competition for Kevin. It isn’t that she doesn’t trust him; she just doesn’t trust the cute little driver she’ll be working for, or Kevin’s newly assigned personal assistant.

BoonieRats 

The first BoonieRats - Jake Olson Adventure


Criminal defense attorney Jake Olson loves winning acquittals for his clients, even when they’re guilty. Winning is the important thing in life, just as it was when he was a platoon leader. Winning then meant killing, and he was very good at it. Turning his soldiers into prolific killers had been equally important to him, having believed they’d be more likely to survive. What he hadn’t considered were the consequences: post-traumatic stress disorder. 


Jake’s real mission in life is saving PTSD victims, many of whom have become his friends. They even have their own motorcycle club. But finding gainful employment for them during tough economic times proves difficult. Jake firmly believes that the lack of money and too much time on one’s hands is the root of all evil, so when a marijuana smuggling opportunity presents itself, he and his BoonieRats Motorcycle Club brothers turn outlaw.


First stand-alone novel in the series.

One Lowly Angel

The second BoonieRats - Jake Olson Adventure
 

What do you call a pint-sized guardian angel who can read minds, telepathically transmit messages and dish out killer headaches? Former outlaw biker Arthur “Deuce” Donahue calls her Lady Sophia. She was assigned to keep him on the straight and narrow, and she’s doing a great job. Now he’s clean and sober, earns an honest living and does good deeds during his free time. Contrary to what she’d expected, Lady Sophia enjoys spending time with the formerly filthy heathen. And Arthur, contrary to what he’d expected, enjoys his new life. But the joy ends in Sturgis, South Dakota, when Arthur overhears a plot against Montana horse rancher Jake Olson and his family. Arthur and Lady Sophia race to intervene, unaware that a foxy grandmother undersheriff and a Native American assassin are doing the same thing. Behind them all but coming on fast is Jake Olson, armed with nerve and a .357 Magnum. Saddle-up for this Wild West-like thriller that takes place not in the 1880s, but the 1980s. 


Second stand-alone novel in the series.
