The romantic suspense novel ‘Catch and Release’ was written by Lori Matthews and published by Wild Coyote Press on October 11, 2022. It’s the fifth installment in the ‘Callahan Security’ series, but the stories in each book are self-contained, so there’s no need to read them in order.

Jake was looking for a holiday, but when his friend asked for help, he couldn’t say no. He ended up protecting the beautiful and intelligent Madison Montgomery, who had a Russian spy on her tail. With the cops arriving at the hotel, they had to flee in a hurry. Jake was determined to keep Madison safe, but he couldn’t protect his own heart.

As they ran, he realized he was falling for her.


On June 1, 2022, the romantic suspense novel ‘Subverted’ was released on the Kindle platform. It is the fourth book in the ‘Coast Guard Recon’ series, but again readers do not need to read them in order, as the stories and romances within are self-contained. This novel promises to be an exciting, thrilling read for fans of the genre.

Team RECON had been called in by Homeland Security to investigate an abandoned ship found in international waters. Finn Walsh had serious reservations about boarding the empty US Navy vessel, but his fears were realized when they found all the navigation and electronics equipment either disabled or smashed. When they discovered a hidden stash of dead bodies and the violent storm caused the ship to start sinking, they had to escape in a hurry.

Victory Stanhope, a Homeland Security analyst from Washington D.C., was reluctantly assigned to lead a Coast Guard special operations team investigating the abandoned ship. To her surprise, she found out that the team included the man she’d shared a night with during a low point in her life. As the team worked to uncover the mystery of what happened to the crew of the Oceanus Explorer and who was selling government secrets, Tory realized that the mastermind behind the treasonous plot was much closer to home than expected.

Justified Burden

‘Justified Burden’ was released on December 1, 2020, published by Twisted Page Press. It is part of the ‘Brotherhood Protectors World’ series featuring stories by multiple authors, set in the same universe. Each book is a stand-alone story, so readers can jump in at any point.
