THE LAWMEN of Elizabeth Heiter

THE DISARMING DETECTIVE
The Lawmen Series, book 1
Harlequin Intrigue

The case that's haunted one FBI profiler for years may have finally met its match in a sexy—and dedicated—detective…

When FBI profiler Isabella Cortez finds a stranger outside her office, she's in trouble. Because even though Detective Logan Greer is one of the good guys, their instant attraction is a serious distraction. Ella's got one mission: to find the criminal who hurt her friend and drove her to become a profiler. But Logan's appeal isn't just chemistry. He has a case that bears an eerie resemblance to the crime Ella's been trying to solve for years. Together, they're racing to stop a killer, but the closer they get, the more dangerous the search becomes. Falling in love could be deadly…or it could be the only way to survive.

A Q&A with ELIZABETH
I have really enjoyed getting to know Elizabeth over the past couple of years. Her books are wonderful . . . hope you give them a try.

ANGI: Do you have a favorite hero from your Lawmen series?
ELIZABETH: I can’t choose! I think whichever hero I’m writing at the moment is my favorite!

ANGI: What do you like the best about the hero of THE DISARMING DETECTIVE?
ELIZABETH: Homicide detective Logan Greer is so dedicated to his family.  It’s a problem in a way, because that gives him deep ties to a town far away from heroine Ella Cortez, but anyone with that kind of capacity for loyalty is a hero worth catching!

ANGI: What do you like the best about the hero of SEDUCING THE SNIPER?
ELIZABETH: FBI sniper Scott Delacorte is so confident and capable, both in his job and in his personal life.  He’s always been a playboy, and he’s not ashamed of the fact that he likes to have a little fun.  But when he falls for FBI negotiator Chelsie Russell, he falls hard.

ANGI: What do you like the best about the hero of S.W.A.T SECRET ADMIRER?
ELIZABETH: FBI SWAT agent Grant Larkin is the kind of guy you want to have your back.  When teammate Maggie Delacorte is threatened by the man who attacked her a decade ago, he’ll stand by her side – or plant himself directly in front of her, and dare anyone to get past him.

ANGI: Hiking Boots or Dancing Heels?
ELIZABETH: Although there’s a time and place for both, I love a fun pair of heels, and I love to dance, so I’ve got to go with dancing heels.

ANGI: Who’s your favorite villain?
ELIZABETH: I have a soft spot for Hans Gruber in Die Hard.  Not only did he switch back and forth from the German to the American accent, but he was so matter-of-fact about just being in it for the money. Smart, savvy, and straight-up.  But, alas, no match for John McClane!
 
ANGI: What is your best wish come true?
ELIZABETH: Being a published author! It’s something I’ve dreamed of since I was very young, and something I’ve worked toward for many, many years.  Actually having my books on the shelves still gives me a thrill every single time I’m in a bookstore.
  
ANGI: Would you rather be in a Fairy Tale or Action Adventure?
ELIZABETH: Definitely an action adventure! This seems to be changing, but the fairy tales I grew up with either featured a woman who needed to be rescued by a man (Disney) or a lot of gore (the original Grimm Fairy Tales).  Besides, most good action adventure stories still have a little romance…

ANGI: What’s your favorite rerun on television?
ELIZABETH: There’s something so entertaining about Psych.  I could watch that show all day – the Gus/Shawn friendship is so funny and cute, and then of course, there’s the Shawn/Juliette romance.  Humor, mystery, romance – it’s got all kinds of fun!

ANGI: What's your most favorite thing to do in your state?
ELIZABETH: Probably downhill skiing.  When I was younger, I skied a lot more – I could ski backwards, on one foot, over small jumps, and around moguls.  Now I wouldn’t attempt a lot of that, but I still enjoy it – skiing makes the Michigan winters more bearable!

ANGI: What’s your favorite meal?
ELIZABETH: Is chocolate a meal? (If not, I think I could figure out a way to make it one…)

ANGI’S GOTTA ASK: If you could have your favorite movie star for one day, what would you do?
ELIZABETH’S GOTTA ANSWER: Hmmm…I think I’d force him to act out scenes from my book, so that when anyone asks, “Who do you see as this character?” I’d have a visual aid!  (After he was finished with that, of course, he’d be tired, and he’d probably want to sit by the fire and eat chocolate with me…since he’d certainly agree that it was a meal!)

SEDUCED BY THE SNIPER
Playboy or protector?
In a twenty-four-hour period, FBI negotiator Chelsie Russell's life changed. She was a promising negotiator in the Bureau, but then she failed to talk down a crazed gunman. A year later the killer has escaped, and sniper Scott Delacorte has stepped up to protect Chelsie. Scott is the FBI's most infamous playboy—and the guy Chelsie had a one-night fling with just before the shooting. She'd dismissed him as the love 'em and leave 'em type, but now he stands between her and a killer. When the investigation takes an unexpected turn, powerful people become desperate to keep Scott and Chelsie silent—dead silent. Chelsie knows it's time to put aside their past and trust this man who has the power to break her heart. Again.

S.W.A.T. SECRET ADMIRER
A predator is no match for her protector…
It's been ten years since the attack that drove Maggie Delacorte to become an FBI SWAT agent. She's an elite fighter now—and when the Fishhook Rapist sends her a letter saying he's coming back for her, she knows she has to find him first. Her teammate Grant Larkin is assigned to the case, and he's determined to protect Maggie, even if it damages the connection that's been growing between them. And even if her attacker has decided that the way to get to Maggie is by targeting the people she cares about. Her feelings for Grant could get him killed, but she needs him —and his love—to make it through the worst danger yet…

    1. Ohhh, I hadn't even thought of all the non-human character types when I was writing that question! You're right - there is great, fun variety!

  4. Hi May! I agree - lawyer characters can help create really interesting plots! In the Harlequin Intrigue line, Adrienne Giordanno had a book about a pair of lawyers (I think out last year) called The Prosecutor, with a really fun premise & loads of drama!
