Finn O'Flaherty is the only surviving victim of the Chicago Heart Ripper. Rescued by her brother, Finn struggles to come to terms with what happened, and battles the amnesia that prevents her from identifying the serial killer.
After Caleb Sheppard decides to protect Finn, he begins to suspect that there is more to the prolific serial killer than meets the eye. One question haunts him: why was Finn left alive? With the Ripper on their heels, they race against time to retrieve Finn's memories, keep her out of the murderer's clutches, and discover the secrets of his identity.
What Finn does not realize is that Caleb and his family are hiding secrets of their own – some of which Finn may not be able to accept.Praise for PROTECTIVE HEARTS:"The writing is exquisite and the characters are well developed and complex. The story of the Ripper satisfied my need for suspense while Finn and those who were trying to protect her, touched my heart. Well done." - Book Addict Review"A must-read if you like well-developed characters, smart plots, great writing and smoldering romance" - Gina Balogh, Amazon review
About the Author
D.S. Williams is the author of the supernatural romance series 'The Nememiah Chronicles'. Wife and mother to four demanding teenagers, D.S. Williams started writing at the age of five, when life was simpler and her stories really didn't have to make much sense. When you're five, happily ever after always ended the story and how you got there didn't matter so much. Older and wiser, D.S. Williams has continued to write... and write... and write. With the support and encouragement of her husband and friends, she has finally come to the conclusion that she can't keep hiding from the world forever and should try sharing the numerous novels which have been written over the past 40+ years. D.S. Williams enjoys writing (obviously), reading (voraciously) and making lists (obsessively). She's enjoyed a lifelong addiction to foods starting with 'ch' - cheescake, chocolate and chips - and when it comes to books, she loves a really good cliffhanger. Be warned! She shares her life with her husband of twenty eight years, the Gang of Four and the current furry residents, Tuppence the Groodle and Angus the Bull Mastiff.
