B.J. Daniels Synopsis: In Hotshot P.I. by B.J. Daniels (part of the multi-author Lawman series from Harlequin Intrigue), Clancy Jones had once again woken up in the middle of the scene of a murder – and this time, she had the murder weapon in her hand. She insisted she was innocent and someone was out framing her. To most, she looked extremely guilty, but to P.I. Jake Hawkins, she still looked damn good. His desire for Clancy had always gotten to Jake. 10 years ago, Clancy had sleepwalked onto a crime scene and her testimony put Jake’s own father in prison. Will Jake prove his seductive client’s innocence… or her guilt?

    I thought there were 10 books for Montana Cahills? Can you help clarify this for me? I have read 7 so far however I cannot find 8- 9 -10?
    Thank you in advance for your time


    • Graeme: 2 years ago

      There are 7 plus a short story (which are all listed above). I see Amazon says there are 10 but that is incorrect.
