Allie writes about romance flourishing despite mayhem and murder. She sets her novels in Kansas City and its suburbs. Why?
Neither the “last livable city” nor its quiet suburbs seem like the kind of place where danger and evil threaten smart women involved with family, friends and killers lurking in plain view.
BTW, if you’re a cat lover like Allie, two very different cats play important roles in her suspense novels. What better way to add intrigue to strong heroes?

When not writing or walking or reading or dancing Zumba, Allie lives just off the fast lane in Silicon Valley with her husband and bibliocats. Careers in teaching adolescent boys, building public library programs and creating marketing materials for emerging technologies often figure into her novels.
Can one loose thread unravel your life?
Three years ago, Quinn Alexander put Pierce Jordan's betrayal behind her. Now her brother needs a favor that forces her to confront her former lover. For her brother, guardian of her devastating childhood secret, Quinn will do anything—even risk falling for Pierce again.
Pierce admits he broke Quinn's heart out of fear he'd never measure up to her ideal. He also admits Quinn's savvy mind and generous spirit drive their successful, ongoing business relationship. Now, realizing how much he wants her, he risks losing her forever by questioning her brother's character.
When Quinn and Pierce uncover embezzlement, drug deals and murder, she fears for her brother, even as her attraction to Pierce grows. Which is stronger—a love renewed or loyalty unchallenged?

Praise for Allie Hawkins’ Presumed Guilty
“Presumed Guilty is fast paced with a lot of action and suspense to keep you on the
edge of your seat. If you enjoy a romantic suspense novel with characters that are
realistic and flawed, then pick up Presumed Guilty and indulge yourself!”
Sizzling Hot Books, 4 Stars
“Presumed Guilty is a big read at nearly 400 pages, but is full of the twists and turns and drama and sex that make a novel worth reading! The skeletons in the backseat don't hurt either . . . well worth the read!”
