Brandi Alexander is having a tough day. First, her fiancé's mother throws $50,000 in cash at her, demanding that she break off her engagement. Then she adds a dangerous threat to the bribe. What’s a girl to do? Her day gets worse when a teenager arrives at her door, drops a baby in her arms, and asks her to raise it. And she disappears! Brandi’s ‘what’s next?’ turns to ‘what if…?’ She knows firsthand about the frustrations of being abandoned and the circus of foster homes and our legal system.
She calls Zack Morgan, her former foster brother. As an undercover cop from St. Louis, Missouri, he’d know what to do. Boy, does Zack know what he wants to do! If only he could get Brandi to see that they were made for each other…. Love is a complicated affair when it’s mixed with more secrets than Watergate, a vengeful ex-fiancé, the emotional conflicts of becoming a mother overnight, and facing the fact that Zack is much, much more than a friend.

About The Author
"House of Cards" is book one in my two-part series, Innocent Is The Child. As with most writers, the first thing I heard when I decided to pursue this career was, "write what you know." So I did.
Many years ago, my husband and I were presented with an unusual and complicated situation. A friend of a friend had just given birth to a baby and needed a place to stay with her child while she recuperated. During this time, under darkness of night, she disappeared - leaving her infant in our home. No notes, no explanations, no phone calls. We waited two days. Because of our own situation at the time, we felt compelled to turn the child over to the Division of Social Services when the mother failed to return. Ever since that time, I've wondered...what if?
