Last Shot at Justice is Book 1 of The Boys of Syracuse, Kansas, a series of standalone novels featuring characters connected to the town of Syracuse, Kansas.One Hell of a Day in Denver
Kristi writes about hard-working people living realistic lives. Her heroes are cowboys and bush pilots, her heroines are tough cops and office workers and veterinarians. She puts ordinary people into extraordinary situations, and lets them discover true character in the face of danger. It might be somewhat out of style these days, but Kristi's heroes and heroines have lines that they don't cross, things that they won't do to save the day. They will find a way to achieve their goals that may take longer and be riskier, rather than cross those lines into doing "whatever it takes" and landing in the murk of questionable morality. They are human, and they do make mistakes. They are practical people and if their loved one is in imminent danger and the only way to save them is to shoot to kill, somebody is going to die. But death and mayhem are never the first choice for Kristi's heroes. Her villains, however, are under no such restraints. With each novel, Kristi goes deeper to create characters who have real motives, goals, and backgrounds that give the reader a glimpse into the heart of darkness. Villains who hold life cheap, and leave chaos in their wake. The end result is nail biting, edge of your seat suspense that will keep you turning pages, rooting for the good guys and that happy ever after ending. The Boys of Syracuse, Kansas, is a series of standalone novels featuring characters connected to the town of Syracuse, Kansas. Most notably a family of cattle ranchers whose ties to the land go back to the 1880s. Good, old-fashioned cowboys.
Just another one night stand…
Ryann despised the thought, but it was the only one she could draw when she woke up in an empty bed. Tired of being let down by everyone she cared about--aside from her brother--Ryann begins taking her life back, pushing back at all the bad and ugly life tosses at her.
Ryder knew the moment he left Ryann alone in bed he’d made a mistake. Running and hiding from his family for years, Ryder didn't want to pull her into that life. She deserved more than constantly moving from place to place.
Ryann just can’t push again. Life is winning and she just wants to lay down and give up. Now, she must make a decision: to run from the truth, or step up and admit what she’s known all along. And Ryder... nine months later and he can’t get Ryann out of his head. He wants her more than he wants to run.
But there's a terrible truth he has to face: it might be too late for Ryann to give Ryder his second chance.

FLAWLESSLY BROKEN by Anna Paige
“I need a favor…” Famous last words. When Spencer was asked to check on a friend of a friend, he thought it was no big deal. Simple. A good excuse to take a nice long drive and burn up some of the free time he’d been forcibly handed. But when he walked into Talia’s apartment and looked into her devastated eyes… simple went right out the window. Despite two years of staunchly avoiding women, he was overwhelmed by the compulsion to help her — know her, avenge her, protect her. Possess her.
All Talia wanted was to hide away and ignore the unwelcome, looming presence of a past she’d thought she left behind. She wanted to wallow, to drink, to slip into oblivion. But a knock at her door changed all that. She found herself wanting to let Spencer in — into her apartment, inside her head. Into her heart. And how selfish did that make her? She knew from the start that she couldn’t be what he needed, couldn’t give him the life he deserved, but she couldn’t help herself. She fell. So did he. And now her past may cost them their future.
***Due to coarse language and graphic sexual situations, this book is not intended for individuals under the age of 18.***
Anna Paige is the author of Broken Ground and Flawlessly Broken, the first two installments in the Broken series. Each title in the series is an interconnected standalone. Anna is currently working on the third book in the series. She lives in a rural town in North Carolina where the only activity is the rhythmic color change of the solitary stoplight and a very real threat of being carried away by mosquitoes. The only alternative to terminal boredom is writing, making life interesting if only on the page. Anna is happily married, with one amazing son and a pair of hilarious pets. When she’s not writing, she’s trying to make a dent in her TBR pile. Given that she’s constantly adding new titles to the list, the chances of her ever finishing are slim. And she’s completely fine with that.
A Hostile Operations Team Prequel
He’s my best friend. He’s everything I ever wanted. And he doesn’t know how I feel. I have three weeks left to tell him before he leaves this place forever…There’s only one way I know how to do that. I have to give him what I’ve never given anyone. I’m going to ask him to be my first… Matt Girard is the guy every girl wants. Rich, handsome, and popular, his future is brighter than the sun. Evie Baker comes from the wrong side of town. She loves Matt desperately, but he only sees her as his tomboy best friend instead of the young woman she’s blossomed into. Until one fateful night when a reckless dare changes everything…
'I’m still coming to terms with this, still trying to figure out what it means for Matt and me. As if there is a Matt and me.
There never will be now.
I pinch the bridge of my nose and work on breathing. “He said we’ll always be friends, that he’ll stay in touch with me.”
Julie sighs. “Well, that’s something anyway. And he probably will. The two of you have been friends forever.”
“I don’t want to be friends.” I clutch my fist to my chest where it hurts so badly. “I want him to feel what I feel, Jules. I want him to ache for me, to need me…”
My throat hurts. I can’t tell anyone else this. But Jules understands.
“I know, Evie.”
I close my eyes and roll my head around on my neck, easing the tension. “Three more weeks. He leaves right after graduation.”
I still have another year to go before I graduate. I mean, I’ve always known I’ll spend my senior year at Rochambeau High without Matt Girard—but I thought he’d be at LSU, close enough to come home on weekends. Close enough to visit if Mama lets me borrow the car sometimes.
He would realize someday what I already know—that we’re meant to be together. I’ve always been certain of it and I’m willing to be patient.
But how is he going to do that if we never see each other anymore? What if he meets someone else? What if he forgets me?
I have to do something before I lose him forever. But I don’t know what…"
