BookBub Special

Did you all know that besides my contemporary romance novels, I also write suspense under the name Patricia Lewin?

So far, I’ve written three, all of which were originally published by Ballantine Books (Random House) in hardcover, mass market paperback, and audio. Recently, I got back the rights and started releasing them in eBook format. The first of these, Blind Run, will always be one of my favorite books.  Plus, it was named one of RWA’s Top Ten Books of the year. Now, for a limited time, it’s a BookBub special.

Check out the first chapter: here.

The Protectors Series


Loving Lindsey (Book One)

Loving Lindsey Cover Image
Lindsey Baker and Will Claxton had once been best friends, until betrayal drove them apart.

Now someone is sabotaging Lindsey’s ranch, and Will seems the most likely candidate. Although Lindsey wants to believe he’s innocent, he’s the one with the motive. Years earlier, her father had foreclosed on a loan that cost Will his family’s land. Still, he insists he had nothing to do with the ‘accidents’ plaguing Lindsey’s ranch. He wants his property returned, but he plans to buy it fair and square.

Lindsey wants to believe the man she’s loved since childhood, but she fears he’ll do almost anything to reclaim his family’s ranch. His sudden interest in her as a woman is too convenient. Can she trust a man who’s never seen her as anything but a friend, when she knows he’ll do anything to regain his family’s heritage – including breaking her heart once again?

Rough Around the Edges (Book Two)

Patricia_Rough Around the Edges300dpi1500x2400

A protector whose touch was as seductive as it was dangerous . . .

Alejandro (Alex) Jamison grew up on the rough side of Miami. As a teenager, he was arrested repeatedly for petty crimes, and then at eighteen, he was caught breaking into a jewelry store, and it seemed his life was set in a downward spiral of ever-increasing lawlessness. Then a judge offered him a choice: military service or jail time.  He enlisted, and it woke him up and changed his life.

Now he runs a youth center in his old neighborhood where he’s determined to prevent other young people from traveling down the path he almost took.

Then, Dr. Kristen Helton walks into his life, disrupting his carefully built world.

He knew the first time he met her that she spelled trouble.  She’s an outsider, a rich do-gooder he expects to run when things get rough on the mean streets he calls home.  But she is his equal in courage and determination, a woman as stubborn as she is beautiful, but can he ask her to share a desperate struggle that will risk their future, even their lives?

Kristen Helton defied her wealthy parents only twice in her life: once when she went to medical school instead of taking her place in Palm Beach society, and then when she accepted a position in a free medical clinic in one of Miami’s roughest neighborhoods.  Now she’s met Alex Jamison, a man from a different world, a man she knows her family will never accept.

Despite all the reasons to keep her distance, Kristen is drawn to the haunted hero whose powerful body has awakened a hunger too strong to resist as she joins his fight to keep kids out of trouble.

Can a woman who’s always played by the rules help a renegade battle the odds and win?
