Haven Seekers Series
SEEK AND HIDE (Book 1)
When Marcus Brenner becomes the designated driver for a beer-soaked stranger, more than his nine years of sobriety is tested. His inebriated passenger works for a new branch of the justice system. His job? Arrest and re-educate those who practice Christianity.
Agent Jason Mayweather drunkenly reveals the targets of an impending raid: two of Marcus’s close friends. He rushes to warn them, but his efforts are not enough. Their capture ignites his resolve. At the risk of his own freedom, Marcus works to earn Jason’s trust, hoping the information he gains can be used to safeguard the remaining members of his church family.
Single mom Aubrey Weston became estranged from her church family after recanting her faith. What they don’t know? Agents coerced her denial by threatening her baby. Now released from the re-education program, she wants only to provide for her son and avoid government notice.
Then her close friend is arrested, and agents again show up at Aubrey’s door. This time they also take her baby into custody. Terrified and alone, she does not expect protection from a fellow believer like Marcus Brenner—or from the God she once denied.
FOUND AND LOST (Book 2)
When Violet DuBay’s best friend Khloe confides that her dad is practicing an illegal religion, Violet knows their duty is to turn him in to the Constabulary. But as a member of his household, Khloe would be sent to re-education too, and she’s not about to ruin her upcoming senior year. Though Violet isn’t a blood relative, she spends more hours there than at home. Doing the right thing will mean the loss of her surrogate family.
Clay Hansen persuades his family to join him at an underground church meeting and brings Violet, his teen daughter’s best friend. That night, the church is raided. He and his wife escape, but in the chaos, he loses Violet and Khloe. How can he find them while the Constabulary monitors his every move?
After the church raid she set into motion, Violet stumbles into an opportunity to infiltrate the Christian resistance. Her mission grows ever more complicated as she gets to know a man named Marcus, a woman named Lee, and others—each with a perspective she never expected.
Meanwhile Clay’s mission to locate his daughter and Violet grows desperate with the passing days. He once credited God with sparing Khloe. But if God won’t step in now, Clay will do the saving himself.
TAKE AND GIVE (Book 3)
Austin Delvecchio is an agent of the Constabulary, a new branch of the justice system dedicated to religious reeducation. With his authority and resources, he has tried for months to locate his missing girlfriend Violet. Instead he discovers the leader of the Christian resistance, a man who’s supposed to be dead. Marcus Brenner is being held illegally and mistreated to an extent that will soon kill him. But rescuing him will make Austin’s boss an enemy, and his boss is too powerful and too ruthless to cross lightly.
Lee Vaughn lost the most important person in her life when the Constabulary executed Marcus. In an effort to continue his work in her own way, she provides black market medical assistance to Christians and furtively houses a recently-met fugitive named Violet. Then Lee learns what really happened to her best friend. Marcus is alive thanks to a rogue agent’s rescue, but both men are now the targets of a concentrated pursuit.
The only option for Lee and Marcus, Violet and Austin is to flee. . .together. Their destination? A newly established nation that has done away with the Constabulary. To make it to safety they’ll each have to rely on their traveling companions, but these four imperiled people aren’t ready to give that level of trust.
FAR AND NEAR (Book 4)
After nearly dying at the vengeful hands of a Constabulary agent, Marcus Brenner was rescued and cared for by a rogue agent; a teen fugitive; and Lee Vaughn, the woman Marcus has loved for a decade. Still together, these four are now refugees in a newly established nation that has pledged freedom to all citizens, including former resistance fighters like Marcus.
His one desire to live in peace and privacy, Marcus works to secure a home for himself and Lee. Meanwhile Lee offers her nursing and cooking skills to those in need even as she struggles with her new faith, with believing she can belong in the church. But all these things are threatened by the news the Constabulary has sent agents into the country undercover. Legal jurisdiction or not, they won’t relinquish their worst offenders. And Marcus isn’t the only assigned target.
Stopping the Constabulary hunters, keeping himself and others safe, might require sacrificing the peace Marcus longs for. He’s not sure he has anything more to give. But one thing Marcus and Lee have learned in recent months: they never see coming the ways God chooses to use them.
“For like a shaft, clear and cold, the thought pierced him that in the end the Shadow was only a small and passing thing: there was light and high beauty for ever beyond its reach.”
