KEEP HER SAFE
National Bestselling Author
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 “propulsive plot twists and searing seduction” (USA TODAY).
Noah Marshall has known a privileged and comfortable 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, and succumbs to the guilt of destroying an innocent family’s life. Reeling with grief, Noah is forced to carry the burden of this shocking secret.
Gracie Richards wasn’t born in a trailer park, 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 her dad was a corrupt Austin cop, murdered in a drug deal gone wrong. 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.
Despite their differences, Noah and Gracie are searching for answers to the same questions, and together, they set out to uncover the truth about the Austin Police Department’s dark and messy past. But the scandal that emerges is bigger than they bargained for, and goes far higher up than they ever imagined.
Complex, gritty, sexy, and thrilling, Keep Her Safe solidifies K.A. Tucker’s reputation as one of today’s most talented new voices in romantic suspense.

The police are meant to protect us from the evils in the world. But is there an area where sometimes you have to do a bad thing for the right reasons? What do you do if you don’t want to toe that line but live on the straight and narrow? You think that it’s an easy choice to make but it’s not and when you are stuck in the middle you don’t know what to do because your conscious us telling you one thing while your mind is telling you another.
Abraham Wilkes was accused and found guilty (in the eyes of the general public) of being a dirty cop. That is what everyone believed for 14 years. But its not until his partner, Jackie, is found dead does that investigation come to light and people wonder if he was really guilty. Wanting to find out the truth, not only for the woman who raised him, but also for the man who was like a father for him. He embarks on this dangerous journey with Abe’s daughter, Gracie as they try and uncover the truth.
There are so many twists and turns in this story that I had no idea where Tucker was going to take us next. What I love most about her writing is the way that she is able to bring her characters to life and give them raw and deep emotions. Gracie just wants to forget about her past but curiosity is a nasty little bugger that makes her want to know the truth.
That ending though. OMG, I did not see that one coming. I was expecting something completely different and was I loved the fact that Tucker was able to surprise me. There is a justice in the way that the story ends as we find out the truth about what happened that night that Abe died including some fun little twist at the end as well. The way that this story is written I hope that Tucker continues down this road because I love the way that this story played out.
