LONG TIME GONE:  Hell or High Water book 2

Soldier of fortune Prophet Drews always worked alone—until Tom Boudreaux became his partner. But when Tom walked away three months ago, ostensibly to keep Prophet safe, Prophet learned the true meaning of being alone. Everyone knows that Prophet, a Navy SEAL turned CIA spook turned mercenary, can look after himself. Which means he must’ve driven his lover away.

Even with half a world between them, Prophet can’t get the man out of his head. Maybe that’s why he’s in New Orleans in the middle of a hurricane, protecting Tom’s aunt. But the only looter around is Tom, bursting back into Prophet’s life. It turns out that Prophet’s been stuck in Tom’s head—and heart—too.

Their explosive reunion gets even hotter when Tom is arrested for murder. As they fight to clear his name, they delve deep into his past, finding enemies among everyone they meet. Staying alive in such a dangerous world is hard enough, but they soon discover that fighting to stay together is the most difficult thing they’ve ever done.

    I can’t tell you how much I love Prophet and Tommy! They are just so fun to read, and I’m thrilled that I’ll get to see them in more books. I’m definitely looking forward to Cillian and Mal. (*holds up Monty Burns “Excellent” fingers*)

    Thank you for amazing characters to yell at and love!

      YAY Kristi!!! I’m so glad you love them :):) Cause I do too (like you couldn’t tell, right?!)…and yes, much more to tell. I’m so glad I get to do so…and dude, Cillian and Mal…holy hell, they’re fun to write. Like O.M.G. Like, they were fun separately, but together? Off the charts…

    Ok I I love this series so so so much. I finished both books in this series and saw at the end of the book more titles coming. Will it be about Prophet and Tom? Thx Dawns

      hey Dawn!!!

      YAY for loving the series 🙂 And yep, Prophet & Tommy have 2 more books devoted to their story (and a short too) – so their next book is in April 2014. Dirty Deeds is a January novella, which starts Cillian and Mal’s series, and that will tie into Prophet & Tom’s next book.

    I thought I read all of your books (I love each and every one) but I realized I have not read Free Falling and the only place I can find it is Amazon but I have a nook! Do you know where I can find an epub version?

      Hey Denitra!

      Yes, that’s going to change very soon re Free Falling 🙂 I will update within the next week or so, but it’s going to be available in more formats again very shortly!
