Shannon's Law (Cover Reveal Book Blast)


    This is the second in the ‘Passion Patrol Series’ - steamy action-romances that feature sassy female cops who solve crimes, catch crooks and always get their man.


Wild child inner city cop Shannon Aguerri walks a dangerous line between her methods and justice. When the bosses lose their nerve, after yet another maverick mission, she is transferred to green pastures to play out the role of a routine village cop. When she encounters signs of people and drug trafficking she homes in on serious millionaire criminals.  As a loner she has attracted men but nothing has stuck. When she meets Spencer, the hunky and widowed Earl of Bloxington, there is an immediate rapport between them. Their social differences mean nothing to their passion and need.  Already in the mix is an upper class female rival – who has long plotted her way into the Earl's bed. The jealousy is an evil shade of green and the anger is a violent scarlet.  Often inhibited by a sense of duty and honour, Spencer is slow to reveal his feelings. When Shannon confronts him with the need to choose between her word and that of her rival, he does not immediately support her. All the same, when they are forced together to carry out a desperate rescue mission, their love is stronger than everything ranged against them.

The author will be revealing snippets from the story, photos of places and people that inspired the venues and characters on Pinterest during my pre-launch book tour.  There are already some scrap-book cuttings posted:

There is also news about the book on Facebook
(‘Likes’ are always appreciated.....)

The author is having two launch parties “Afternoon Tea At Bloxington Manor”. The first is online on the 28th February on Facebook and the second is LIVE at the English stately home that inspired the home of my hero on Sunday 2nd March.  A local favourite venue for her, Avington Park in Hampshire is steeped in history and tradition. (Think genuine Palladian style rather than Downton Abbey neo-Jacobean). The private owners have kindly agreed to open up with a tour of the house and then tea and cake – oh and launch the book of course!

  1. Thanks for hosting my cover reveal here today. A famous royal mistress and actress spent much time with her lover at the house on the cover. Her orange fruit was sweet and sold for sixpence. Any ideas?

    1. You are very welcome, thank you for visiting. Hmm...Nell Gwynn?
      Good luck with the release and I love your author portrait!

    1. I agree! Thanks for visiting, Crystal!

    2. Yes! You're quite right about Nell. She stayed at Avington because the bishop of Winchester would not accept her sleeping with the king inside his city. Sixpence was a lot of money in the 17th century. Thanks for commenting. Emma x
