As the youngest woman ever to make detective in the Portland Police Bureau, Danny Hartmann has racked up an impressive record. It doesn’t keep her warm at night, but it does make up for feeling she’s somehow disappointed her family with her career choice. Called to the scene of the murder of a homeless veteran in a transient camp, Danny doesn’t expect it to be anything other than another case she clears.

Then she meets the man who made the 9-1-1 call and everything changes.

 Jake Abrams, a volunteer doctor at the Veterans Medical Services Clinic, doesn’t have much faith in anything other than his work and the vets he cares deeply about. Not shy about voicing his opinions, even to the cops investigating the murder of one of his patients, he annoys Danny with his snarky remarks.

However, working the case, she has to rely on Jake to help her find her way around the transient camps under the bridges and in the city’s huge wilderness park. As they work together, their attraction becomes mutual and passionate.

 But Jake has demons. Like the vets he cares for, he carries scars both mental and physical from his service in the National Guard in Iraq. He fears Danny will turn from him in disgust when she discovers them. She’s afraid his experience in Iraq makes it impossible for him to love someone who does what she does for a living.

When the murderer of the homeless vets comes too close to Jake, it’ll be up to Danny to save his life. It’ll be up to their love for each other to save them both.
Oh Peggy, how you always have a way of making me fall in love with your heroes, especially when they don't make the BEST first impression, as Jake happens to accomplish in BELIEVING AGAIN.  He is going to have a tough time getting Danny to surrender, but it was certainly fun to watch!
Not only do we get a romance with BELIEVING AGAIN, but Peggy shines light on a huge issue that our Veterans face when they come home from war, and they have trouble returning to their everyday life.  What happens to the ones who have no family? or home to return to?  It's a sad issue and I was happy that Peggy took the time to acknowledge these men and women who are forgotten.
As always with a Peggy Bird romance, the heroine is feisty, the hero a bit broody and boy do we get some Very Sparkly Fireworks!  Pick it up today!!

About Peggy
Born in Philly, I’ve spent most of my adult life in the Pacific Northwest where I have happily grown webs between my toes and moss behind my ears. I pursued a number of careers—nurse, legislative staffer, lobbyist, public affairs consultant, non-profit association executive, workshop teacher, oh, and mother and wife—before deciding to leave it all for what I’ve loved through every stage of life—writing. I've been published in anthologies, magazines, newspapers and in the brochures, newsletters and reports of my consulting clients and employers. Unless you count speeches for politicians, I'd never written fiction until a cast of characters began inhabiting my daydreams. A glass artist and a gallery owner were there. So were a sculptor and a jewelry designer. When some dead bodies showed up, a couple of cops and a deputy DA arrived. Soon they began to fall in love with each other and work for their happy ending. Bingo. I was a romance writer.

You are a very busy lady!
You're book sounds good and I can't wait to read it.

Stephanie Manning said...

This one sounds really good! I actually enjoy reading the Crimson Romance books and I like the cover on this one. No matter what the book or who the author is, they are always steamy, well-written and while it gets hot, it's never so hot that it requires a warning... always to the point but tastefully written.

I will be putting this one on my TBR list! Thanks for sharing Tasty!

Ohhh this sounds like a good one! I love it when both the characters are strong and they stand up to each other! Looking forward to reading Believing Again!

I love this kind of story. Where love can make a wounded broken soul believe in love and life again. This is a new author to me, but not for long.

What do you love best about the Pacific Northwest? I live in Portland, OR before we move to Louisiana and I miss the awesome weather in Spring.
