To avenge everything she loved, she had to become the monster... Sarah Hayden was the worst kind of monster. In her own eyes, she was no better than the man whose life she took. Prison was where she belonged. But her attorney, Jon, knew better. He doesn't understand why but he can't help himself from making Sarah see that she deserves another chance at life, and another chance at love... Justified is not a sweet romantic read, but an upfront and honest look at life. Sarah Hayden may be a fictional character, but she is very real as well. She is the neighbor down the block, the cashier at the grocery store, she is you and she is me. She is every woman who ever did what had to be done. This is her story.

“If you like psychological detective stories with a touch of humour and romance, you will love Sam Smith.” Book 3 in a series about Samantha Smith, an enquiry agent in Wales. Because the author's books are most popular in the USA, the audiobooks are produced in an American accent. Sam has plenty to contemplaate in the way of what determines insanity and obsession. Who is more insane? The homeless man who mutters fanciful ideas? Or the seemingly harmless person who harbors a grudge? Who is more likely to contemplate murder? And who is more likely to be blamed? As with her other novels, the author delves into social issues, giving the reader a chance to think differently about pure, hard facts. Sam Smith has to ponder these thoughts while trying to discover who shot her and left her to die. Once again, she mingles with the criminal world to find answers, not accepting the "easy" way out. Along the way, she learns to trust more in her intuition, and she grows in her sense of worth. She has reached a turning point in her life and can give advice to others that until recently she was unable to accept herself: "you are not to blame; the criminal is."

Because the author's books are most popular in the USA, the audiobooks are produced in an American accent. It had been a week since the incident at the abandoned quarry, a week since I’d shot and killed someone, a week since my ex-husband had been murdered. It had been an emotional week. But life goes on. I’d been hired to discover who was sending death threats to Dr Ruth Carey, a controversial psychiatrist. The trail led to two high-powered villains and soon the death threats were aimed at me, threats that increased following two murders. Meanwhile, after years of domestic violence, I was trying to make sense of my private life. Dr Alan Storey, a prominent psychologist, claimed that he loved me, and I was strongly attracted to him. But the years of domestic abuse had scarred me emotionally and I was reluctant to commit to a relationship. Love and Bullets is the story of a dramatic week in my life, a week of soul-searching, self-discovery and redemption.

“If you like psychological detective stories with a touch of humour and romance, you will love Sam Smith.” First book in a series about Samantha Smith, an enquiry agent in Wales. Love Hurts. For Derwena de Caro, songstress, female icon, teenage dream, success brought drugs, alcohol and a philandering boyfriend. It also brought wealth, fame and a stalker, or so she claimed. And that’s where I came in, to investigate the identity of the stalker, little realising that the trail would lead to murder and a scandal that would make the newspaper headlines for months on end. Love Hurts. For me, Samantha Smith, Enquiry Agent, love arrived at the end of a fist. First, I had to contend with an alcoholic mother, who took her frustrations out on me throughout my childhood, then my husband, Dan, who regarded domestic violence as an integral part of marriage. But I survived. I obtained a divorce, kept my sense of humour and retained an air of optimism. I established my business and gained the respect of my peers. However, I was not prepared for Dan when he re-entered my life, or for the affection showered on me by Dr Alan Storey, a compassionate and rather handsome psychologist.
