Welcome to book seven of the 82nd Street Vandals series. If you have not read the first six, stop. Do not pass Go. Grab book one: Savage Vandal, and start there.
This is a series that really must be read in order.
Okay, back to my welcome. Merciless Spy picks up a short while after where we left off in Dangerous Renegade. Need a snapshot? Pour yourself a drink, grab a seat, and get caught up in the foreword.
Merciless Spy finds us with a war brewing and their journey far from over.
The seismic shifts that have rocked their lives are not over. Not by a long shot. Please remember that this is a dark romance and there are definitely triggering moments with regard to abuse, assault, violence, and addiction. Take care of yourself.
Also, this is the seventh book in a series. While there may be no specific happy endings at the end of each of these books, there will be one to the whole series, that I promise you. Some of these books will have cliffhangers, largely due to the size of the story, but the happy ending has to be earned.
Finally, I want to add one last note. Books are not written in a vacuum. Worlds are not created in silence. There were some deeply challenging moments as I worked on this book, and thanks to some of the most wonderfully supportive people and the best girl gang ever, I made it. We made it.

I’m coming on behalf of Heather to let you know you will be getting a note from Amazon soon if you pre-ordered Merciless Spy that the release date has been pushed back again. The new release date is January 17th, 2023.
Heather has been working tirelessly to get this book finished in time but after talking this over, this was the best call. While Heather has been in the writing cave, she’s also been sick. This gives her body time to get better and then go in and wrap everything up to the level she wants it at. Extra time will ensure she can deliver the Vandals exactly as they deserve. This book has some pivotal and important moments she wont compromise on. Thank you so much for all the support and understanding!

I am so excited to share a brand-new series with you! If you will indulge me for a moment, I wanted to take a minute to discuss a little history behind Problem Child. A little context, if you will.
If you’re reading this one for the triggers found in this book, go ahead and skip to the end of this letter where I will list them for you. If you don’t mind giving me a couple of minutes of your time, I’d like to share another story with you.
This story is the history behind Blue Ivy Prep, the concept of KC, and a young, talented woman named Harley (HarleyQuinnZaler on Facebook).
Harley was a devoted reader and a talented cover artist. During one of her pre-made sales, I grabbed a cover that just resonated with me. A girl in denim overalls, dancing like crazy, and her hair was teal. From the moment I saw that cover, KC aka Kaitlin Crosse was born.

Holiday Card Signup
Members of my reader group know that I love to send out holiday cards each year. If you’re new, be sure to sign up for it. I will also send cards to international addresses. If you have filled it out in the last two years, and you haven’t moved, you don’t need to fill it out. If you have moved, just submit an updated address. I will be going by the most recent date for which one I send it to.
Also, if you haven’t joined my readers group on Facebook, now would be a great time because we have all kinds of holiday fun planned as well as live Q&As as well as bonus scenes and more!

It’s here! I wish I had something pithier for you than we’ve made it, but here we are. The fourth and final book in the Cardinal Sins series is available now. Clearly, if you have not read the first three books in this series, it is probably a good idea to go back to Kill Song and start there!
After three books of build-up, we are so stoked to share the twisted conclusion to the Cardinal Sins series. There were some twists and turns we didn’t quite expect. There were also more than a few characters who popped up (or in some cases just strolled in).
We will warn you that as in previous books, this novel does contain graphic violence, depictions of human trafficking, sexual violence, as well as some scenes involving physical and psychological torture. This is very much a dark romance with emphasis on both the dark and the romance. We do try to inject some funny as well.
Please use caution and protect yourself.

Did you see? Liam’s cover is here! The cover is by Crimson Phoenix Designs and features model Philippe Bélanger via photographer Wander Aguiar. I am so freaking excited for this seventh book in the 82nd Street Vandals series. Merciless Spy will see Emersyn and the guys take on a host of new challenges and you never know what threat is lurking right around the corner. While you’re waiting for this to release, be sure to check out the completed Cardinal Sins series!
Last Word releases this month, that’s one more completed series in the hopper! Have you started Cardinal Sins yet? There’s no time like the present to dive in! The whole series is free in Kindle Unlimited.
Brutal Fighter audio is completed and uploaded. Audible can take up to 10 business days to release it, so anytime in the next two weeks. Keep your eyes peeled! Currently books 1-4 are available via audio and book 6 is being recorded.
First Chorus audio has been completed, proofed, and corrected. So it’s also been uploaded! Stay tuned for more news there!
I am hip deep in Blue Ivy Prep. Problem Child has been a bit of one but I think we’ve got the hook and we’re rolling.
Shameless is the first weekend of November in Orlando and I can’t wait to see everyone there!
