Book Spotlight: TENDER MISDEMEANORS by Alana Lorens

Tender Misdemeanors

by Alana Lorens

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Caryn Orlane has law enforcement in her blood; her father was a cop, and his father, too. She's a federal agent in northwest Montana, protecting the old forests and keeping the peace.

Levi Bradshaw also believes in protecting the forests, but has a very different MO. He's the leader of a group of eco-warriors, determined to save the trees of the Bitterroot by legal—and illegal—means.

When they meet in the woods at gunpoint, their encounter ignites a spark of interest, despite operating on opposite sides of the law. When their worlds turn on them, they only grow closer. If they don't work together, can either survive?

  1. And the ride begins! Thank you for hosting me!

  2. Really don't care for the lips close-up cover, but I see it ties in with the title. I prefer more scenery type covers. Story sounds great. Really enjoy stories taking place in the wilderness.

  3. I want to revise what I said about your cover. My view of it only showed the kiss. I can now see it all, & I like it! Sorry!

    1. It does almost seem like two different covers! but the dogs are important to the story, so I'm glad Kim Mendoza found a way to make them all join in.
