New South Series Book 1

When Ella Leary crashes the birthday party of publishing mogul Levi Northrup, she hopes to learn something sordid to use in her fight against him. She believes he’s stolen the magazine her father started and blames him for her father’s death. She never expects him to chase her down the street or be so vulnerable that she loses her edge and falls into bed with him. Levi is irate when he learns Ella’s true identity and gives her only a single issue of her precious magazine while he unravels his father’s final, very personal, business deal. Long-held secrets will force them to either part ways or work together in and out of the office.

When Ben Sheridan is released from prison in 1936, he returns to his hometown to lead a simple life. Although he's paid his debt to society, he's never forgiven himself for taking the life of his step-brother over a decade before.

Ben can't resist Heather's free-spirited approach to life, and she can't resist his reluctant charm. Neither intends to fall in love, but when dangers from their past threaten, they discover just how fiercely they're willing to fight for each other and their future.

Amazon/Audible review of Tied together

This was my first M.K. Chester's book, and won't be the last. This is the third book in the Bryeton Series. I love Ben and Heather's story. The storyline is suspenseful and filled with mystery, intrigue, and romance. Jennifer Groberg did an amazing job with the narration. I enjoyed my listening, and totally recommend this audiobook.

Barnes & Noble Review of Icehaven

With vivid imagination, the authors bring this new world into intense focus. You can feel the frigid temperatures and imagine the desolate landscape. The characters are well-drawn and likable. The writing flows in that smooth, rhythmic way that I love, and I just couldn’t stop reading Icehaven.
