Orphaned at age twelve, Beck Murray grew up with the Carmichaels, a sitcom about a perfect family. Years later, he's an FBI special agent, and Piper Nolan, the actress who starred in his teenage fantasies, enters his a suspect in the murder of a US senator...

Find out what happens in PERFECT TARGET, my new romantic FBI thriller! The setting is Los Angeles. The book opens with an explosion on a luxury yacht, and the action never stops. 

I really enjoyed writing about Piper and Beck. It was fun to delve into the life of a former child TV star. I grew up in the shadow of Universal Studios. In fact, I worked there when I was a teenager and had a chance to watch filming and learn about that industry, so I got to use some of my personal knowledge in this story, which was fun. And I'd been looking forward to writing Beck's story for a while. He's a dark, brooding, handsome FBI agent, and he has a traumatic past that he's been trying to get over for most of his life. Together, these two battered souls find a way to heal and love! 

I hope you'll check it out!
