Authors Shira Anthony
Mancy have teamed up to write a red-hot action-packed thriller!
and they have the hottest one-nighter of their lives. But Chance doesn’t do
repeats, Xav seems detached, and they go their separate ways without a word.
Two months later, when closeted Assistant District Attorney C. Evan “Chance”
Fairchild meets Dare’s Landing’s newest deputy sheriff, Xavier “Xav” Constantine,
Evan isn’t only wary. He’s irritated as hell.
to put an end to rampant cocaine trafficking and chafing under the thumb of an
election-hungry boss. When someone tries to kill the thirteen-year-old witness
who holds the key to both their investigations, they’re forced to work together
as they put their lives on the line to protect him. As Chance and Xav collide in
heat of a sweltering
summer, dodging bullets and chasing bad guys isn’t the only action going on.
Later, when Xav is at the pier mulling over his life choices, the angler who offers him a beer, and the kid on the skateboard who almost takes a header off the pier, not only add local color, but give us a chance to see Xav’s easygoing side. Even the seagull that mars the celestial sky has a purpose. He shows us that nothing is perfect and Xav accepts that.
When we first read of Chance Fairchild, we meet him in a stressful political meeting with a seedy but smooth politician for a boss who is an expert prevaricator not only by commission, but by omission—and Chance isn’t fooled for a second. Yet Chance is on a mission and isn’t about to change his mind: he will do whatever it takes to get drugs off the streets. But we also see that Chance has yet to ‘come into his own.’ We see there is an angry ruthless side to him which is barely contained because he has yet to mature in certain aspects of his life. He’s damaged. We know this from the outset, yet we know he’s determined to do the right thing no matter the cost. Shira adds to Chance’s ‘personal scenery’ by giving him a historical home that he lives in and has been restoring for five years. Enter Thunder, a stray cat that Chance is not about to admit he cares for, yet he does care for almost lovingly. As with the seagull, and though not characters, these supporting elements speak to who Chance is.
NOW FOR MY REVIEW: :)
story without one. She’s happy to write what her muse tells her, whether it’s
fantasy, sci fi, paranormal, or contemporary romance. She particularly loves
writing series, because she thinks of her characters as old friends and she
wants to visit them even after their stories are told. Shira writes about the
things she knows and loves, whether it’s music and musicians, the ocean, or the
places she’s lived or traveled to. She spent her middle school years living in
and tries to visit as often as she can.
she currently works as a public sector attorney advocating for children. She’s
happy to have made writing her second full-time job, even if it means she
rarely has time to watch TV or go to the movies. Shira and her husband spend as
many weekends as they can aboard their 36′ catamaran sailboat, “Lands Zen,” at
to write about pirates and mermen, her sailboat is her favorite place to write.
And although the only mermen she’s found to date are in her own imagination,
she keeps a sharp lookout for them when she’s on the water.

a Yoda-look-alike grandfather, Aisling doesn’t conform, doesn’t fit in, is epic
awkward, and lives to perfect a deep-seated oppositional defiance disorder. In
a constant state of fascination with the trivial, Aisling contemplates such
weighty questions as If time and space are curved, then where do all the
straight people come from? When not writing, Aisling can be found taming waves
on western shores, pondering the nutritional value of sunsets, appreciating the
much maligned dandelion, unhooking guide ropes from stanchions, and marveling
at all things ordinary.
