An Eye For Danger (Fairchild Press)
Heat rating: steamy

When former war photographer Jules Larson braves a panic attack to jog beyond her five-block safety zone in Central Park, she runs right into a murder scene. Jules finds herself caught between a persistent NYPD Detective, Stone McCarthy, and the rogue undercover cop, Sam Fields, who both vie for her affections at any cost. But Jules can't grow too close to Sam, even when his touch melts her armor, or accept Stone's increasing advances, even though he's twice the gentleman Sam is, for fear either man might discover her true role in her fiancé's death.

"I was thrilled to be taken away by 'An Eye for Danger' while on a cross-country flight. Boy, was I upset when the battery on my e-reader died. Ms. Fairchild had her way with me. I could not put this book down. A romance and thriller, I was captivated by her characters and their journey. Brava!" D. Borchet, Kindle reader
