Twelve years later, Kat emerges from the shadows of the Witness Protection Program, only to find the danger her father had placed them in still out there. The last thing she wants to do is put her high-school sweetheart in danger, but he’s the only person she trusts with her life.

Working for a private-security firm, Ben is shocked when his evening appointment is a ghost from the past. He knows he can’t refuse to help Kat, but when it’s over he knows he’ll have to let her go; she deserves better than the man he’s become.

I’d waited so long.

Then fate delivered my dream man, Oh, he was beautiful. Hot blue eyes, a dimple in his chin, lean muscles, and big, thick, manly hands. With the power of a tornado he swept me off my feet and rose me up to unimaginable heights. I thought I’d died and gone to heaven.

Then he disappeared from my life before I had time even to catch my breath.

I picked up the pieces of my broken heart and moved on. Now, when I least expect it, his ocean blue eyes are burning right through me again, and all those crazy-intense feelings…they’ve come back as if I didn’t spend years burying them.

I still crave him like a drug, but after two years things have moved on. I’m trapped in a loveless relationship with a very dangerous man. Saving me from my nightmare is not an option.

But can my heart really survive his loss again? Or do I risk it all and give him complete possession of me?


The moment I saw Izzy I knew she was special. We just clicked. I took her back to my hotel room, and I was right. She was fuckin’ perfection. I took her sweet Innocence.

Then a quirk of fate separated us. Life’s wrecking ball happened but  I never forgot her.
I can close my eyes now and see her straddled over my hips, her skin glistening with sweat, her long blonde hair tumbling over her shoulders, and her eyes half-closed with pleasure
Two years later fate has put her back in my path.  She’s still so f*ckin beautiful but this time she’s different. Gone is the sweet Innocence..
But all I want to do is just get between those creamy thighs and pick up where we left off. My need is raw and visceral and real, she dosen’t understand the power she has over me.
I’m not prepared when she drops her bombshell. It cuts like a knife through me. She says it’s too late, things have changed. She’s hooked up with some brute. A low life criminal with a powerful father who won’t let her go. Even if she wanted to leave it’s too dangerous.
I see fear in her eyes, and it fills me with a raging fury.
I don’t give a f*uck who or what he is.
I will protect this woman.
He has no fucking clue he’s messing with an Eden man’s woman

She’s mine. I claimed her that night in the hotel room in Paris.

Now fate has given us a second chance…and nothing and no one is going to stop me taking back what’s mine.

Once a victim, now a killer.

Darkness of the LightsGet it on Amazon!

With the nation still captivated by the acquittal of Colton Reynolds in Dallas, the ratings for The Nita Harris Show have never been higher.

The exciting second installment of the Preludes to Pariah, Darkness of the Lights, delves further into the world of Richard Howk’s upcoming novel Pariah. It continues the story of The Evil Among Us, and explores the effect of the media in the narrative of infamous persons.

Celilo's Shadow

Get it on Amazon!

Guilt is a powerful force. No matter how much time has passed, it’s always there, ready to punch you in the chest when you least expect it. All it takes is something ordinary—a brief glance, a certain food, or a melody on the radio—and regret strikes hard and fast. For Odessa Feldman, the trigger is a Pacific Northwest storm.

When the muddy bones of a murder victim buried over fifty years ago are discovered in the storm’s aftermath, Odessa overcomes her long struggle with guilt to finally reveal the truth. But her overdue confession comes with a difficult price—reliving her role in the tragic summer of 1956 and worse, betraying the best friend she’d ever had.

Dessa and Ellie Matthews were both fourteen-years-old when they met that summer. Ellie’s father was a foreman at the dam under construction on the Columbia River. At least that’s what he said. But, like murder and the motives behind it, some things in life are rarely as they seem.
