The job should have been easy—patrol a swank beach that serves as a backyard for Maui’s rich, kick out the riffraff, and get a tan in the process. But rent-a-cop Samantha Winters didn’t anticipate a deliciously grumpy cop, Sergeant Grady Roark, who comes down to the beach to bust her chops and instead leaves her breathless…and wondering why the one man who could help her seems determined to thwart her at every turn.

Grady is keeping secrets from Sam that have him walking the line between attraction and duty. But when Sam becomes the target of a shadowy organization, Grady will have to choose between the law and the temptation of a woman who has him breaking every rule he’s ever known.

The job should have been easy, but when the bullets start flying, Sam learns nothing is as easy as it seems when you’re a Gun for Hire.


“Why John Deacon, Sam?” Grady’s hands tightened on the steering wheel.

I threw my hands up. “It could be Jesus Christ himself signing my paycheck and I’d still be doing it for the same reasons! The job works for my family. What is your problem with John Deacon? And don’t tell me nothing—you owe me more than that.”

“Maybe I’m just jealous.” Grady stared ahead. “Like you said.”

My stomach did a loop. “Don’t use your charm on me, I’m immune—”

“You think I’m charming?”

“Hell no, I don’t! And particularly not when you’re avoiding my question.”

“But you said I had charm.” He tilted his head and gave me a long, sly look from the corner of his eyes. His teeth flashed white from that tanned face and I nearly had to fan myself when I realized I loved the feeling of Grady teasing me.

I threw my hands up in the air. “I give up!”

He wanted to talk about confusing? All I knew about Grady prior to this day was that he was six-foot-two of gorgeous and about as warm as a polar bear on the North Pole in January. And now—

An Interview With J.J. Montgomery

What is your writing Kryptonite?

Ugh, anything! My day job, my kids, dust on the stairs…also, Shark Tank? Which is this bizarre obsession of mine. I think I’ve seen every episode.

What other authors are you friends with, and how do they help you become a better writer?

Oh, shout out to Mary Cain, who is an amazing writer and editor and who makes me better by never pulling punches. I have writer friends on the ’17 Scribes, and especially want to highlight Kellye Garrett, who is amazing. C.B. Clark is a friend I met through my editor. And then there’s my incredible editor, ELF, who then introduced me to Wonder Woman, Crystal, who coordinated this entire book tour for me. (Psst – for you writers, -- she does freelance promotions and she’s amazing.)

What’s your favorite under-appreciated novel?

I don’t think it’s underappreciated, but sometimes the author is – The Gold Coast by Nelson DeMille is absolutely brilliant. I think I read it about once a year. Character development at its finest.

Do you hide any secrets in your books that only a few people will find?

Oh, people, for sure! There are details about the people in my life that only they will know…the Tracy Chapman reference is definitely an inside joke with my sister. And my dad does get mistaken for Jimmy Buffett.

If you had to do something differently as a child or teenager to become a better writer as an adult, what would you do?

Write more. I’d have written every day since I got the bug. And every day I don’t write, I lose something. I think a lot about how good I could be had I only taken this seriously at a younger age.

Thank you J.J. Montgomery!!
