Murder. Suspense. Sex. And some handy household tips.
Every desperate housewife would love an alias. Donna Stone has one, and it's government sanctioned. Oh sure, you need to be ruthless to take on Russian mafia bosses, rogue dictators, and terrorists set on destroying the world. But it takes real killer instincts to survive suburbia. Try juggling the fifth grade phone tree during a shootout with skinhead arms dealers, or driving carpool while being chased by Chinese double agents.
Donna's life wasn't always this complicated. Five years earlier she was just another woman with two preschoolers, a baby bump, and an adoring husband, Carl, with whom she lived happily ever after in a McMansion in the Orange County, California community of Hilldale. But Donna's life was changed forever the night she delivered her baby:
Carl's car blew up on the way to the hospital.
Turns out Carl was a “hard man”—an assassin for the black ops organization known as Acme Corporation. The hit on Carl was carried out by the Quorum, a terrorist cell he was tracking.
The Quorum's motto: “Show me the money.” Governments and corporations do as they're told-or suffer bloody consequences.
Carl left something behind that the Quorum wants badly. To protect herself and avenge Carl's death, Donna joined Acme. Whereas her hostessing skills rival Martha Stewart's, her marksmanship is second to none.
A good thing, too, because the Quorum has planted a sleeper cell in Hilldale. For Donna, that's too close for comfort. Will she be able to save her family before the Quorum blows up Los Angeles?
Acme's way of flushing out the Quorum is by “bringing Carl back from the dead.” But terrorism makes strange bedfellows. Jack Craig, the wild card Acme operative paired with Donna brings, new meaning to that old adage “Honey, I'm home…”
A nuclear arms summit, hosted by a politically connected American billionaire industrialist, provides the perfect opportunity for a rogue operative to assassinate the newly-elected Russian president on US soil. Acme operative Donna Stone's mission” seek and exterminate the shooter, before all hell–and World Word III–break loose.
‘Tis the season for mistletoe…and murder! There will be no peace on Earth if Donna doesn't find a shipping container filled with heat-seeking missiles!
London. Paris. Guantánamo Bay. Donna Stone is looking for love–and terrorists–in all the wrong places. Worse yet, an old flame gets in the way of Donna's chance for true love. But she doesn't cry. She gets even.

“The book ended with a hook that made me want to get the next one. I’m completely smitten.” —BarbaraVey.com
“A hilarious, laugh-out-loud read. Donna is a fantastic character – practical, witty, and kick-ass tough. There’s plenty of action – both in and out of the bedroom – and although there are a few grittier scenes, generally this is a light, humourous caper of a crime novel. I especially love the housekeeping tips at the start of each chapter – each with its own deadly twist! This book is perfect for relaxing in the bath with after a long day. I can’t wait to read the next in the series. Highly recommended.” —CrimeThrillerGirl.com
