The Passion Patrol Series element of these books is that every story features a female cop from the London Met Police as protagonist. Each heroine in each book has a different role within the police.  In this book, Helen is a police dog handler. Ex-army, she was widowed when her husband was killed on active duty.  The story tells of her struggle to love again after her loss.

The common theme in the series is that we join the heroine at a point when she is single and about to meet the love of her life, usually in the course of duty. These sassy powerful women are as passionate about the men they love, as they are about fulfilling their duty in the police. The path for true love is never easy and each of these girls face mortal peril and are challenged to complete their mission, keep their man and stay alive to love another day. Cops from earlier stories crop up in future editions in the series as they continue their careers in the London Met Police so you can keep up with their progress and their lives.

Sample text:

He brought her a coffee from the machine. He hadn’t asked. She realized she hadn’t even looked at him. She didn’t want to think of anything other than Lanza. Anything else would somehow be unfaithful. It had been over an hour. She stared at the blue swing door through which she knew the yes or no would come.

“You always know if a jury will say guilty or not guilty,” she said.

“You do?”

“Sure. If they look the prisoner in the eye then he’s out of jail. If they keep their eyes down, he’s in trouble.”

“I believe he’ll pull through,” he said.

A jolt of anger shook her. What did he know? What right did he have to give her false hope just to cheer her up in some pathetic way?


She could tell he’d picked up her resentment.

“I’m sorry. I just said what was in my heart, my gut.”

He’d caught her signal, tuned in to her at once. She flicked her eyes to his and found them on her face. Large dark eyes with strength and sorrow speaking to her. She sighed.

“I didn’t—”

“You didn’t need some idiot to mess with your own hopes.”

Voices approaching the swing doors. He took her hand. He didn’t ask.

A bespectacled man in green scrubs pushed through with his shoulder. He looked up and smiled. And held her eyes.

“Hi, I’m Simon Leonard. He’s with us, but weak.”

Author review:
Absolutely top class. A joy to work with. Fast, efficient and completely fluent understanding of the text and a true creative writer herself. Never losing the sense of meaning even when dealing with idioms in English and translating these into Spanish. My only fear is that she's a better writer than me!
