by Kylie Hillman

When a black heart meets a broken heart, fists will fly.

Gabriella Mitchell
A girl devoid of hope.
With all her energy spent trying to keep a roof above her brother and sister’s head, Gabbi doesn’t get time to play much anymore. Her parent’s divorce has forced her to grow up too fast, leaving her to assume responsibilities well beyond those of a normal seventeen-year-old.

“Hooligan” Harvie
Burnt-out MMA fighter who’s lost it all.
He had the fairy-tale lifeâ??the perfect woman and a son he adored. Until the day it was ripped away from him in the most violent of ways.
Hooligan is content to live with his rage … until an angry girl breaches a chink in the armour that protects his black heart.

She’s broken-hearted. His heart is dead and decayed inside his chest.
She’s lost the ability to trust while he doesn’t think life has anything left to offer. When neither believes in fairy tales, can the vicious world of MMA show them that they’re wrong?

That even the most f#cked-up deserve a happily-ever-after?

Brawl is the first book in the Black Hearts MMA series by Kylie Hillman. This coming-of-age tale is about more than MMA.

The Someday File (The Deuce Mora Series Book 1)

by Jean Heller


Deuce â?¦ finds dead-ends and danger at every turn. Part journalism procedural, part character study, THE SOMEDAY FILE is a humdinger of a mystery, the first of a welcome new series.”Paul Levine, author of Bum Rap

Deuce Mora’s one tough cookie–a female sleuth with a conscience and an attitude–fiery, tough, athletic, a dirty fighter when she has to be. In Jean Heller’s first mystery featuring the scrappy newspaper columnist, Deuce finds out in short order that if you mess with organized crime, you have to be toughâ??and you’d better be as much detective as reporter. When she walks into a seedy neighborhood bar in a suburb of Chicago–all six feet of her, topped with auburn curlsâ??she’s searching for a human-interest story. What she finds is Vinnie Colangelo, an aging mobster living on bad beer, cheap bourbon and regret for the life he wasted.

Vinnie hints at secrets much bigger than his rap sheet should entitle him to, and Deuce immediately discovers that somebody’s willing to kill to keep those secrets buried. She uncovers a series of crimes committed over nearly six decades, and, as her human interest story morphs into a hard-boiled, action-packed mystery, she finds herself dead center in a storm of threats and reprisals from the mob.

It’s not enough that the mob’s after her, and corrupt government is concealing the evidence that would explain why; even her own editors, frightened of lawsuits and losing subscribers, want her off the story.

Fortunately, she has many allies: a network of loyal co-workers and contacts, even an ardent new admirer. But which ones can she trust? At least one of them, she suspects, is hiding a secret– corruption? Murder? The veteran reporter knows: if you’re talking Chicago crime sceneâ??it’s probably both.

Though attacked in her home, stalked, and shot at, Deuce doggedly batters the well-oiled machinery of terror that has kept the secret buried so long. Heller meticulously builds her heroine’s investigation, as the evidence–and the danger–converge in a white-knuckling confrontation.

“Good reporters do not always good novelists make, but Jean Heller is both.” — The Boston Sunday Globe

WHO WILL LIKE IT: Fans of Chicago private investigators VI Warshawski and Libby Fischer Hellman’s Georgia Davis, get-the-story-or-die reporters like Hank Philippi Ryan’s Jane Ryland and Kelly Lange’s Maxi Poole, hard-boiled female protagonists like Marcia Muller’s Sharon McCone and Laura Lippman’s Tess Monaghan; and anyone who admires tough-minded women sleuths who’re good in a fight.
