Amazon Best Selling author and multiple RONE Award Finalist Linda Joyce writes contemporary romance and women’s fiction featuring assertive females and the men who can’t resist them. She lives with her very patient husband in a house in metro-Atlanta run by a fifteen-year-old canine named General Beauregard or “Beau,” who believes they are his pets. Linda’s a closet artist who paints with a brush, yet longs to finger paint…but hates getting her hands messy. She’s addicted to Cajun food and sushi. Linda will deny she only leaves the house once a week and only then to get criticism from two other authors.Linda lives in Atlanta. She’s a big fan of jazz and blues, and she attributes her love of music to her southern roots, which run deep in Louisiana. Courtesy of her father’s Air Force career, she lived coast to coast in the U.S. and wrote her first manuscript when she was twelve while living in Japan, where her mother was born and raised. During recess, girls lined up on the bleachers, like birds on a wire, and took turns reading and passing pages to the next girl in line.In addition to being a book addict, Linda loves dogs. She’s a foodie—a fangirl of celebrity chefs, an RVer with a 5er, loves to hike and kayak in spring and summer, binge watch movies in the winter, and when the days cool and the leaves begin to turn in the fall, she’s all smiles over SEC football.

Left as a newborn to die in a dumpster, she has no name.
Tossed from state run orphanages to a string of foster homes, she has no family.
Growing up hard, fast and street smart, she’s accomplished in hand to hand combat and accurate with a gun. With no money for college, she enlisted in the US Marine Corps out of high school and was quickly plucked from her unit when her sharp shooting and intellectual skills outshined her male counterparts.
With no known past, she is deemed a perfect fit to a task force Washington denies exists. A selective assassin for the United States government, Jane Doe tracks known terrorists on domestic soil.
Dispatched to Atlanta, Georgia with a kill assignment, Jane is tracking number Thirteen on The List. Her cover is secure in the library where she volunteers and her identity quiet until a journalist shows up on a tip to research a name and number she knows well—Three.
Now she’ll be forced to choose between the target she desperately wants to eliminate for personal reasons and the assignment she’s been given, all while keeping the reporter from getting himself killed or worse, falling for Jane.
Possessing a fertile imagination and a penchant for executing improvised but brilliant plans, Jane is a killing machine with ice running through her veins. Every time she goes to a different town, two things are certain: she’ll have a new name and someone is going to die.

After leaving Atlanta and reporter Matt Matthews behind, Jane takes her next kill assignment in New York City. A terrorist plot so out of the realm of the ordinary, Jane expects to debunk the tip she’s been given and report back to Washington for another assignment. But when she discovers the plan unfolding for Times Square is real, she knows there’s only one mastermind who could plan and execute such a heinous act—Three.
Now with help from NYPD’s Counter-terrorism team, Jane has the chance to partner with the head of their Archangel Package, Kelly Casey. But, Sergeant Casey has more than just information on her kill assignment and the man she’s been tracking for over a year. He could hold the keys to what she’s been searching for.
Matt Matthews is in New York finding his way back to three things: his true identity, his family’s war profiteering empire and the woman he lost in Atlanta—Scarlett.
As the clock ticks away, Jane must find a way to stop the attack and end the life of one man before he takes the lives of thousands.

Fleeing to Washington, DC, Jane searches not only for her final kill assignment, but answers from her superiors. As the lines between who is on the right side of truth and justice begin to blur, Jane questions what is wrong and what is just. Unable to trust what she knows any longer, Jane looks to exit the program she’d worked so diligently and tirelessly for.
But Jane knows too much and is too valuable and walking away isn’t part of the program she signed on for.
Between tracking Three, stopping an attack on Capitol Hill, keeping up with Matt Matthews and not losing sight of Kelly Casey, Jane has her hands full and her gun even more loaded than ever before.

It’s what he said to me across his altar, what he demanded so that I would be pure.
In the moment he blessed me with his virtue, I was no longer the woman I’d once been.
I was Eve.
His bridge to Heaven’s gate.
I failed him because my faith was not strong enough.
He punished me for not giving in.
Resisting temptation is never easy.
Not when his hands, his teeth, his heat and hunger were the greatest of my sins.

A REBELLIOUS OUTCAST
Cocky. Coy. Wolf shifter. Tabor is the hollow’s only half-breed, scorned and forbidden to use his powers. Constantly overlooked despite his strengths, Tabor believes Sasha is as shortsighted as the rest of the pack until she proves there’s more to her than a blindly obedient lapdog to the council.
A DUTIFUL PUREBLOOD
Spirited, stubborn, and deeply loyal, Sasha feels the pressure from her pack to claim another pureblood, yet no one is brazen enough to defy the elders and toy with her . . . no one besides a sexy, hotheaded half-breed.
AN ATTRACTION THAT THREATENS THE FUTURE OF THE PACK
Bewildered by the deceptively proud and surprisingly sensual Sasha, Tabor would risk everything to claim her. Despite her vanishing bloodline, Sasha can’t resist the charismatic half-breed even as predators threaten their pack and the elders pressure her to breed with a pureblood.
In a fantastical post-apocalyptic world, where only the strongest survive, sometimes trusting the heart is the bravest act of all.
