"Making a Murderer meets Scandal in this story of police corruption, family secrets, and illicit affairs from bestselling author K.A. Tucker, celebrated for her "dark, twisty tale[s]" (Lisa Gardner) filled with "clever twists and turns" (Publishers Weekly). Noah Marshall has had a privileged life thanks to his mother, the highly decorated chief of the Austin Police Department. But all that changes the night she reveals a skeleton that's been rattling in her closet for years: she doesn't deserve her commendations or her medals--in fact, she deserves to be locked behind bars. When she finally succumbs to the guilt of destroying an innocent family's life, she leaves Noah alone to carry the burden of this shocking secret. Gracie Richards wasn't born into trailer park life, but after fourteen years of learning how to survive in The Hollow, it's all she knows anymore. At least here people don't care that she has a white mother and a black father. And they certainly don't care that her dad was a corrupt Austin cop. Here, she and her mother are just another family struggling to survive ... until a man who clearly doesn't belong shows up on her doorstep one night. Together, Noah and Gracie set out to uncover the truth about the Austin Police Department's dark and messy past--but the scandal they uncover is bigger than they bargained for, and goes far higher up than they ever imagined. Complex, gritty, sexy, and suspenseful, Keep Her Safe solidifies K.A. Tucker's reputation as one of today's most talented new writers of romantic suspense"--

Who Should You Trust?

Keep Her Safe by K. A. Tucker is a steamy, thrill ride that takes us into the lives of Noah and Gracie as they investigate and unravel all the lies, secrets, deception, and corruption that has tainted their past and present and try to vindicate their loved ones.

Noah Marshall is the son of the chief of the Austin police department. Gracie Richards is the daughter of a drug addicted mother, and a father who was a corrupt police officer, killed in a drug deal gone wrong. Noah and Gracie have not seen each other for fourteen years, but reunite to try to uncover some truths from the past.

The writing is taut and edgy. The characters are complex, secretive, scarred, and genuine. In addition, the plot told from multiple perspectives is an intense, suspenseful love story filled with police politics, familial drama, palpable chemistry, coercion, manipulation, violence, and murder.

Secrets, lies and cover up’s made for an exciting ride that had me riveted from the first to the last page. Keep Her Safe was a riveting read, with characters who each have their own burden to bear tied up in others’ in an intricate web of deceit and uncomfortable truths. Just who is telling the truth and what lengths will they go to in order to seek justice or hide what happened all those years ago? How far is the shadow cast from the sins of your loved ones?

Overall, Keep Her Safe is another absorbing, touching page-turner by Tucker that has just the right amount of romance and mystery to keep you invested, engaged, and guessing until the very last page.
