Blurb:  Kim is a beautiful, successful, businesswoman, and co-owner of one of the top urban publishing companies in the country. She is also an author with a host of books on the New York Times best sellers list. She is a mother of three, and has a wonderful husband named Harold. Life is great for them on the outside looking in, but Kim had more than a few secrets.

Shawn is a handsome and successful businessman, and best-selling author. Being co-owner of one of the top urban publishing companies in the country gave him a six figure salary. He also has a beautiful daughter and a loyal wife. On the outside looking in, they were the perfect family of three, but Shawn had secrets.

Shawn and Kim not only shared a company together, they also shared a son, a house, and a life. When their son is kidnapped, Shawn and Kim worked together to find him. Little did they know, they were much closer to the kidnappers than they thought. With the fear of never seeing their son again, Shawn and Kim wake up sleeping beasts that no one was ready for. Letting all parties involved know, there’s a very thin line between life and death.

blendedfamilies - excerpt


“A cold chill went up my spine, and something told me that we should quit while we were ahead, but we didn’t. Instead, we sat there and ironed out a plan. Harold told Haley that he would unlock the door and disarm the alarm. After that, Don and Lavon would have about ten minutes to kidnap Superior and get out of the house.”


“There was a time that I didn’t care who I killed. If there was a price on your head, then I was coming to collet. I was the best in the business, and everyone knew it. My murder game was crazy, and nobody was fucking with it.”


“I walked into the kitchen for a bottle of water. Kenya was sitting at the kitchen table eating her breakfast, just then my cell phone rang. It was the hospital calling me in for an emergency surgery. I wanted to see my family off to the airport, but once again I had to go.”


“The day before my two weeks were over, Joe asked me to marry him. It was the most beautiful, heartfelt proposal I could have ever asked for. He took me to the beach where we went the first day we met. It was a beautiful candlelit picnic set up for the two of us.”


“My eldest brother and I were caught and tortured for hours on end. I watched a man slice my brother’s tongue straight out his mouth because he wouldn’t talk. Then cut him from ear-to-ear and gutted him like a fish.”
