Keeping her safe means keeping her close…
I'm a private investigator, part of a big Irish family, and a no-nonsense kind of guy who knows what I want. And what I want more than anything is Alicia Rhodes. Beautiful, Black, opinionated, and self-assured Alicia Rhodes, the woman I can't stop thinking about. But I'm also on a dangerous case and leaving her exposed is the last thing I want to do.

Calling On Quinn
Calling on Quinn is a suspenseful and mysterious story of tragedy, danger, intrigue and betrayal. It is the first book of the new exciting series, The Blackhart Brothers.
Quinn Blackhart being the eldest of the five Blackhart siblings, is very protective of his family. He along with his brothers work as private investigators who are working together to find out who tried to gun down their sister Erin and her husband Cal.
While taking care of his nieces and nephew while their parents are in the hospital Quinn meets Alicia Rhodes, his niece’s drivers education teacher. He is instantly attracted to her and can’t seem to get her off his mind.
Alicia having dealt with heartache and betrayal is not making it easy for Quinn to get to know her. Will Quinn finally win her over and get her to give him a chance? Pick this book up and find out.
The strong characters in this book are well written and easy to relate to. Quinn’s accent makes you feel as if you can actually hear him talking to you in that sexy Northern Irish brogue. The storyline flows so seamlessly from one chapter to the next, it is like watching a movie, from the tragedy of the shooting, to the adjustment of the kids missing their parents. Can I just say I love the kids. You will too once you meet them.
The first book in the Blackhart Brothers series, follows Quinn Blackhart as he and his brothers race to figure and find out who shot-down his sister Erin and her husband Cal. Quinn is the oldest of the five Blackhart siblings and likes his life structured, but in walks Alicia Rhodes.
I don't think Quinn was ready for her and he will have his hands full trying to lock her down for a more permanent position in his life. This relationship isn't without its ups and downs and there more ups than downs. The author has written this story in such a way all of the characters become not only endearing but a part of you. As much as Quinn becomes my hero, Alicia is my shero. She is a bad...shut your mouth!
Oooo child, when her ex-best friend came into her place of business, she handed her the business. Heck I wanted to beat her back to birth and change her name from Heaven to Hell. How in the world that chick thought Alicia owed her anything is beyond me, girl needs some serious old school can of whoop a$$et therapy.
As a visual reader this book played out in my mind like a movie. A well written story and I can't wait to see (read) what this author has in store for the rest of this series.
