Sex, Lies, and Sweet Tea by Kris Calvert

Hotter than hell and half of Alabama, FBI Agent, Mac Callahan is thirsty for everything except love. Coming home to bust a white-collar crime ring, Mac intends to execute his usual practice with work and women¬ – get in, get it on and get out. Instead, he finds himself unexpectedly drawn to the legacy of his family, his plantation, and the charms of a Southern girl. Samantha Peterson possesses everything he needs in a woman, including the evidence to wrap his case. As the investigation heats up, so does their passion and a dangerous game ignites. But, then again, everything’s hotter in the South.

And if you love Sex, Lies, and Sweet Tea, you’re going to want to dive into Sex, Lies, and Bourbon, out 5/17!


Sex, Lies, and Bourbon by Kris Calvert

FBI Agent, Win Holloway is going home to Kentucky—and not under the best of circumstances. At odds with his family since turning his back on their lucrative and long-standing bourbon empire, the blond haired golden boy carries not only a badge and weapon, but the unwarranted guilt of his mother’s death twenty-three years ago. When his father is found murdered in their family estate in an identical fashion, Win is forced to face his family’s past and the history of Winter Bourbon while searching for answers to not only his father’s death, but his mother’s unsolved murder.

Special Agent, Virginia “Ginny” Grace has been called in to investigate what seems to be a high-stakes deal gone wrong. But as she uncovers shocking Winterbourne family secrets, finds herself in the middle of her late father’s unsolved case and deep in the lives of the bluebloods of bourbon—including her one-time lover, Win Holloway.

When murder is an inside job, you keep your enemies close, and your family closer.

Guest Post: Kris Calvert on the Writers’ Police Academy

Writers' Police Academy

Does the gun your character uses have some quirks you should know about? How would your character find clues in a blood spatter pattern? When does the local police call in the FBI for help? And that’s where the Writers’ Police Academy comes in. Every year, writers gather in Appleton, Wisconsin for one hectic and fun-filled weekend to train like a cop, by real cops, Federal agents, and forensics specialists. We asked romantic suspense writer Kris Calvert to tell us about her weekend at this year’s Writers Police Academy. Here’s her story…

Will There Be Doughnuts?

When I set out for Appleton, Wisconsin and Writer’s Police Academy 2015, there was one pressing question on my mind: will there be doughnuts?

It may seem like an odd thing to ponder with so many intriguing seminars and hands on training sessions on everything from blood spatter and autopsies, to K-9 units and romance in law enforcement, but if I was playing cop for a few days (along with two hundred and fifty other authors), I wanted it to be as real as it could be. And for me, that meant doughnuts.
