Center City First Responders, Book 2
If there's someone in pain or in need in Center City, these courageous men and women are there to help. Fire, Police, Medical and Dispatch: they'll be there.
Martin "Rock" Ferris & Kate Turner
A Sergeant in the CCPD, Kate Turner has always known what she wanted to do with her life. She wasn’t the kind of person who could sew up a wound or deliver a baby… okay, she’d done that once, back when she was on patrol, but now her job was watching out for her people and making them better officers. Who was watching out for her? She didn’t need someone to do that, thank you very much!
Martin “Rock” Ferris was a man who would walk through fire for his friends and did so on a regular basis as a member of the Rescue Crew from House 29. As broad in the shoulder as he was brave, he never left anyone behind and he was always there to lend a hand in the thick of a crisis. The problem in his life was that the very person he wanted to protect more than anyone else didn’t want him around.
It wasn’t that they weren’t compatible. They knew how to get along fine enough when they had their hands on each other and their clothes off. And while Kate used her sharp tongue to tell him exactly where to step off, she also knew exactly how to drive him wild. And when she let him, he returned the favor over and over again.
But that’s all she’ll give him. Those stolen moments in the dark. Kate doesn’t want to let him into her heart. Men don’t stick around for long and she’ll never give Rock the chance to break her heart into a thousand pieces. When her world is upside down and everything is falling down around her ears, she knows her family is there for her, but she’ll never let them see the abject fear and deadly doubt that’s creeping into her mind. She hides that away and puts on a brave face.
Martin is determined to tear down her walls because he knows that he’s ready to stand there between her and danger. He’ll always be Her Rock.
Author Bio ~
Books have always been a big part of my life. Reading was an escape from my classmates who teased me because of my speech impediment. Books were the walls of my castle, protecting my fortress, and allowed me to bask in the sunlight of my beautiful labyrinth filled with fantasies. Now, I hope that I can share that same gift with others. If I can give them a place of shelter, of joy, and yes… love, then I will count myself blessed.
