Hers to Protect
By Catherine Lanigan

Note from the Author

I am thrilled to bring you the eleventh story in the Shores of Indian Lake series. For those of you who are following our community, you will remember that I introduced the Hawks family in FAMILY OF HIS OWN. Although, Isabelle Hawks, the artist, has been a character from the very first story, LOVE SHADOWS, our new story is about Isabelle’s younger sister, Violet.

Violet is my first character who couldn’t wait to leave Indian Lake behind and find her career and life in the big city. She doesn’t care what coast the city is on, just so that it’s far from home. Violet is adamant that working for a small town police force will never provide her the kind of challenges for her instinctual detective skills she’s convinced is her greatest talent.

When she’s unable to land a job in any of the major cities where she’s applied, she feels she’s lowered her standards when she goes to work for the ILPD. After six months on the job, mostly as a traffic cop, she’s finally given a detective assignment---she’s to conduct a stakeout on a farmhouse suspected as a hideout for a drug ring.

The second afternoon on the stakeout, Violet mistakenly assumes that the expensive sports car zooming down the country road is owned by the drug lord. She takes chase and pulls the driver over. Not only is the killer handsome driver not the drug lord, he’s wealthy and world famous Josh Stevens, a Formula One race driver. In addition, she’s left her post.

From the moment Violet arrests Josh, to their day in court in front of the judge, to the days of Josh’s community service, Violet is ordered by her boss, Trent Davis (PROTECTING THE SINGLE MOM) to stay close to Josh, hoping that he will disclose information about Miguel Garcia, the drug lord, who happens to be a friend of Josh Stevens. So, is this coincidence that Josh and Miguel are in Indian Lake at the same time?

Violet is caught between her growing romantic feelings for Josh and her loyalty to her detective team and the ILPD. She doesn’t know whom to trust and as Josh’s past secrets come to light, Violet fears she’s fallen for the enemy she’s sworn to bring to justice.

I hope you like HERS TO PROTECT. Look for my November release, CHRISTMAS UNDER GLASS. The story of Joy Boston who returns to Indian Lake to bury her grandfather and sell the family greenhouses and finds her first love, Adam Masterson, is the one part of her past she can never leave.

To make amends, Josh launches a charm campaign, and it works on the small town…and on Violet. But when Josh is connected to an investigation, Violet begins to wonder—can she trust her instincts when her heart is involved?
