Thankful Author 2018- Amey Zeigler

I am thankful for my family. My husband is my biggest cheerleader and support. My children are the little people I love the most. I draw my strength from them. They are funny and fun! We wanted to have a big family but sadly, life doesn’t always work out that way. Life sometimes is hard, the trick is to be thankful for it all—the hard times as well as the good. When I was really sick, my family struggled. I am so grateful I am feeling better. I always love the phrases like: Show gratitude and return gratitude because when we are thankful, we do things to show it. I show gratitude and return gratitude by not taking my health for granted. I volunteer and bless other people’s lives as much as possible.
I am also so thankful to share what I’m thankful for! Thank you!


Twenty-three year-old investigative journalist, Andy Miller is armed with her many disguises and creativity to take down the riff-raff of Saint Louis. When her stepbrother is murdered by the mob, Andy soon discovers she’s out of her depth.
Enter Hugh Donaldson who has reasons of his own for discovering the murderer. He’ll use everything in his power to achieve that, including lying to Andy about his past. Dangerous as he is attractive, his martial arts skills and his quirky ways raise Andy’s suspicions.
Although Andy balks at his lies, Hugh’s charms, twenty-inch biceps, and electrifying blue eyes are difficult to resist. Striking out on their own, Hugh and Andy try to outwit each other as they traverse North America tracking down people connected to the case.
As clues disappear and the body count climbs, Andy and Hugh must trust each other and use their combined skills to bring the murderer to justice.
He didn’t want to have to do this, but it might be the only way she’d listen to him. He seized her gun hand, twisted it around, wresting away the gun, dropping it to the mat. He kicked it away and pinned her in a joint lock against the door with his body.
She kicked, she elbow-jabbed, but he was relentless. Sheer muscle and weight gave him the advantage, all combined against her.
“I’m not saying you can’t do it, but I’m saying leave it to the professionals or join with us. Don’t try to do this alone.
Brad would want you to be safe.”
He had to invoke his name. He had to evoke whatever emotional sway Brad had over her. Her gaze scorched him with burning intensity, her chest heaving into his with such passion.
Conner was a fool to have let such a creature go.
“Let go of me.” She scrambled around powerless
against his strength.
“Are you still resisting?” He bent his head to whisper in her ear, his face lost its kindness. “If you work alone, then I will use you as bait. You will go bumbling around in the dark and I will capitalize on your bumbling and stumbling. I will get what I want.
With or without you.”
Andy finally relaxed her body. He hated taking the spirit out of her. But it was the only way to keep her from getting killed.
“Okay, I concede,” she said.
He smiled inwardly, the rush of victory, conquering a well-matched foe.
“I knew I could persuade you.”
Her smile warmed him, he released his body from hers. In a flash, her leg flew up and hit him square in the nads. She opened the door behind her, and slipped out by saying, “Brad asked me to do this. So I will do this.”
Through the purple haze of pain, he called out, “Where will you go Andy Baker?” The front door opened. “They’re hunting you,” he called.
The door slammed shut again.
He smiled despite the throbbing.
He liked her.
