Title: Hope and Honor

Author: Marilee Brothers

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Book Blurb:

Life is becoming more complicated for soul reader Honor Melanie ‘Mel” Sullivan. Her boss needs help with his rebellious teen daughter who believes rules are made to be broken and her current boyfriend Homeland Security agent Mick Petrov is becoming an absentee lover, dropping hints about a major decision he faces. To make it worse, Mel’s ex, 3 Peaks detective ‘Billy the Kid’ McCarty wants her back. And those aren’t the only challenges…

When a paramilitary group called New Dawn wants her soul-reading skills, Mel meets five-year-old twins who steal her heart. Unwilling to abandon the motherless children, she strikes a deal with the compound’s charismatic leader. Drawn deeper and deeper into New Dawn’s twisted agenda, Mel must figure out a way to save the twins and herself before it’s too late.


He scoots his chair back and pulls me onto his lap. I lift his cap to check out his hair. It’s pale blond and growing out from the spikey do.

He says, “Is it true blonds have more fun?”

“You get to decide.”

He leans and whispers, “Believe me, I will.”

Heat spirals through my body, settling deep into my belly. I want to grab him by the hand and drag him out to my car. Have my way with him. Until I see Mick, I don’t realize how much I’ve missed him. But, this is not the time or place. I push away and stand. “Are you going to introduce me to your friends?”

I suspect they are fellow officers. Not that he’ll tell me.

Instead, he says, “This is Mel.”

He points at the men and identifies each one by first name only. Now I know for sure they’re his work buddies.

I say, “See you around, guys. Enjoy your evening.”

Mick looks a little panicked. “Hey, wait. I’ll see you later. In Number Ten. Right?”

Now, it’s my turn for payback and I love it. “Wrong.” I walk away.

“At least leave bread crumbs.” I hear a hint of desperation in his voice and return to the table.

“You’re Homeland Security. Remember, you have no rules. I’m sure you’ll figure it out, big guy. Bye, bye.”

His buddies burst into laughter as I sashay away.

If money were no object and there wasn’t a pandemic circling the world, where would you go for a Spring Break vacation and why?

I would love another trip to Ireland. The people are friendly and actually like Americans. The pubs are great. I was there in 2007 and kissed the Blarney Stone. Shortly after, I received a contract for the first of my twelve books. Coincidence? Maybe.

What’s your favorite thing about Spring and why?

The beauty of the world around me waking up after a long, cold winter. The sweet sound of songbirds. Daffodils and tulips poking through the earth as if checking to see if it’s safe to bloom.
