Raleigh artist, Linda Rae Blair, has traveled the U.S. extensively. With a family history of Scots-Irish immigrants to the U.S. around the time of the revolution and as a 13th generation direct descendant to John Alden & Priscilla Mullins, pilgrims of Mayflower fame, she has always been a lover of history. She combines these into sagas that are interesting to history buffs and lovers of romance and mystery. Her descriptions of the countryside are vivid and her characters come to life for the reader.

Read her latest romance/mystery saga, "Tiwa Valley Brothers in Blood". Enjoy the scenery and people of New Mexico and the ties that keep these blood brothers as close as any family can be.

The 1st in The Preston Andrews Mysteries series, "Hard Press'd", is out now! There's a deadly villain, a gorgeous FBI agent and Preston Andrews (watch out ladies...this homicide detective is HOT HOT HOT). You can almost taste the salt in the ocean breezes of Virginia Beach.

The 2nd book in The Preston Andrews Mysteries series just published. "Press'd Into Action" finds our hero, Press, "volunteered" by FBI Director Malcolm Probst (not Press's favorite human being). On the up side, FBI Special Agent Rachel Wilding is assigned to work with Press again. The killer is cunning, but then so is the team sent into the mountains of Virginia to hunt him down.

 
BOOK BREAK

Press'd Into Action Fiction - Crime, Mystery

Virginia Beach Homicide Detective Preston Andrews is 'volunteered' by the FBI to help solve a series of murders that began twelve years ago.

Teaming again with his VBPD partner, the young Homicide Detective Trace Evans, and his girlfriend, FBI Special Agent Rachel Wilding, Press is put on the case by the very same Director of the FBI who screwed up his last work for the FBI and nearly got him killed.

What is the killer's reason for the bizarre posing of the bodies? Why is there a one year gap between each disappearance and the killer's "display" featuring last year's victim?

Track the sociopath and the detective and see who comes out the winner in this killer's sick game.

Hard Press'd Fiction - Crime, Mystery

Welcome to the beach--Virginia Beach, to be exact. Detective Preston Andrews (Press to his friends) comes from wealthy Virginia Society with a capital "S". He is a man admired by women for his handsome face and well-toned physique. Men respect his opinion and skill on the job. Crooks cringe at his tough attitude and tenacity.

Despite his refusal to accept the FBI's efforts to recruit him, he remains with the Virginia State Police as their senior detective. His career is a great success--much to his father's dismay. U.S. Senator Andrews would prefer his son go into Foreign Service or politics. A year ago, Press helped the FBI solve the East coast's worse series of murders since The Boston Strangler. He carries the bullet wound to prove it.

His personal life is a mess. His younger sister won't speak to him (his own fault), his live-in girl friend moved out, his parents are disappointed in his career choice, and the 180 lb. dog, Jones, who shares his beachfront mansion has failed multiple attempts at obedience training.

A young girl's murder brings these two aspects of his life crashing together.

Claire: A Woman's Journey ~ NY Heiress - Chicago Madam Fiction - General

Part 2 of/included in Intersections:

When the child was finished with her very first nursing, William lifted her from Suzanna’s arms, held the babe close to him and walked her around the enormous master suite of their New York mansion. The sun was streaming through the windows between the pale blue silk draperies, shining onto the silk draped bed where Suzanna rested watching them with a peaceful smile on her face.

William watched his Suzanna as she drifted off to sleep. Good he thought, get some rest my beloved. You worked so hard giving us this beautiful gift today. You deserve a good rest. Then looking back at sweet, little Claire he knew no other day in his lifetime could bring him this same joy.

He sat in the chair beside Suzanna’s bed and just held the babe, rocking her for the next two hours while her mother rested.

Neither of them knew that the future would not be so kind. Much of the joy would vanish; their standard of living would disappear. Murder would bring loss of love and safety. The fact that they could not see what lay ahead was perhaps the greatest gift they had this day, but that was a blessing of which they were unaware."
