Not wanting to let go, Fiona, held on to her daughter Cassandra as they embraced on the stoop. “Come back home, you hear me?” she said still hanging on. “Got it ma,” Cassie answered, as she let go of her mother’s hand. With everything she needed, Cassandra had to find Detective Amato and save him from himself.

It was going to be a tough task since he hadn’t responded to her calls in weeks. The only clue she had was an envelope of cash with her name on it. This alone, showed just how dire his situation was. Cassie was no fool, she knew things with his brothers in blue had gone sideways and he was most likely in the wind. Now all she had to do was find out where he was but if she failed, the consequences could be fatal.  It was only a matter of…

Conduct Unbecoming by Dellani Oakes

conduct-unbecoming-10-3-14Romance and suspense, who would’ve thought those worlds would go so good together?  I had never even heard of the term romance suspense until I was given “The Ninja Tattoo” and Immediately I was hooked.  Over 15 years ago, I just stopped reading romance because the genre had become too formulaic.  You were either in two camps, bodice ripping or family oriented storytelling.  Being in my early twenties, neither appealed to me, let alone, spoke to me.  That all changed just last year, when I was introduce to a real story which happened to have a romance element in it.  So you bet your butt when the next book came out this past week, I HAD to have it!  “Conduct Unbecoming” picks up where The Ninja Tattoo leaves off, with action, thrills and of course, romance.

So Teague McMurty is back and this time he has to help his friend Nadeya (an old army buddy) after she is caught in the middle of a military conspiracy.  After her boyfriend is brutally killed, Nadeya goes on the run and has nowhere to go and no one to turn to.  Little does she know, her friend Aileen,  reaches out to Teague on Nedeya’s behalf.  To complicate matters, Aileen is an old ex of Teague’s!

Whether Teague likes it or not, his friends are at his side to make sure justice is served.  However, it won’t be easy, the people hunting Nedeya aren’t amateurs and will stoop to anything to make sure Nadeya’s silenced once and for all.  To complicate the mission, Nedeya doesn’t want to be found.  Not knowing who to trust, Teague has to be careful not to lead Nedeya’s killers to her front door.  But he’s Teague, he’s got this…

Amato went to the rendezvous point at the 52nd street junk yard to meet New York’s infamous investigative reporter, Javier Marín. It was an unusual cool June morning but Amato wasn’t the least bit nervous in fact, he was determined to get this done. Feeling the breeze on his face, he brushed his over grown black hair out of his face. He grew it out to throw off the cops, he also grew a beard in case he wound up on the street and needed to blend in with the homeless. Amato spent most of his days planning the next move.

In his new persona, he managed to sneak into his old apartment and discovered it was ransacked. Someone was obviously looking for something however, they left his plasma T.V. and the wireless speakers untouched. Meanwhile his desk drawers were pulled out and their contents spilled…

Fedelta Parte 11: The No Tell Motel

We’re getting closer to a shocking end in “Fedelta” but first we have to discover why Detective Amato is hiding from the boys in blue.

Nervously Amato looked out of his window, before answering the door. He wasn’t safe as long as his heart was still beating. They wouldn’t quit until he and Cassie were dead which made his situation dire.

It was just the manager wanting his money. Quickly he shoved the $300 into the old man’s outstretched hand and hastily shut the door. Amato always made sure to pay cash because he didn’t want to be traced. He knew the boys in blue were watching his accounts and waiting for him to make a mistake. It had been nearly a month since he had been ambushed at the hospital parking lot and he had spent it laying low and watching his back.

Since his exile from his beloved Brooklyn, he spend his time amongst the junkies and prostitutes who made their nests in the dingy Palais Motel. It…

About the Author

K.S. Thomas

K.S. Thomas
Dog Lover who likes her pastries full of cream and sugar…oh…and I write some ;-)

Aside from being an author, I am also a mom to a beautiful little girl. I tell everyone I named her after my great-grandmother (because that’s the mature answer), but really, I named her after my favorite princess – just so happens I got lucky and they had the same name…If I wasn’t a writer, I would work on a horse ranch – I’m an animal lover (in addition to dogs, horses are at the top of my list). I wear flip-flops pretty much everywhere I go. I would rather stay awake until 5 am than get up at 5 am (years of bar tending have left their mark), if I can, I’m going to the beach AND I will always be nice to people who bring me chocolate…or coffee…if you bring me both, I’ll probably love you forever.

A gypsy at heart, I write the way I live, following the story wherever it may lead, always ready to start the next one. This is clearly reflected in my body of work which to date includes everything from Children’s Lit to Thrillers.

I happily reside in sunny Florida (for now) and can be contacted via my blog, my website or the following social media sites ~

Fedelta: Chapter 10: Identity Crisis

Rachel Rueben:

There’s a fork in the road and Detective Amato has to make a choice.

As the morning sun struggled to pierce through the grey clouds, Detective Amato tried to make sense of what happened in Xavier Park. 24 hours ago it would have been inconceivable that a woman was able to take down one of the Mob’s up and coming stars. Now the question remained, for what? Cassandra was clearly paying the price for her role in her brother’s demise.

Clinging to life for the last several days, she nearly pierced the veil into eternity on three occasions. Each time, the doctors and nurses were able to bring her back but for how long? It was a question that went through Amato’s mind as he watched from a steel folding chair across the room. It was the kind of Karmic justice where no good deed goes unpunished.

Since Cassie was in critical condition, visitors were monitored by the…
