If you’re familiar with the Time Served series, you know the books are packed with formidable fighters, whether or not they ever step foot inside the ring. The hero of The Good Fight, Oz Hall, is a former fighter who gets the fight of his life when he meets the stubborn heroine, Dr. Susan Jones, sister of Caitlin from book two. Oz occasionally sparred with the hero of book one, whose love interest, Rachel, often fought with Caitlin. This got me thinking—maybe I should write nicer characters who don’t fight so much. Just kidding! What it actually made me think about was how even though my heroes are often larger-than-life, they’re always more than well-matched with a heroine who knows how to pick her battles—and win.
“If you’re looking for a gritty story with a lot of heat (and I mean a lot) and real characters, I’d definitely recommend Time Served.”—DearAuthor.com
Julianna Keyes returns to the wrong side of the tracks in this third installment of her wildly popular Time Served series
I was born a fighter. You had to be, to survive in Camden. Lucky for me, I loved it. The thrill, the pain, the glory. Until one night things went too far and I almost lost my ticket out.
So I swore off fighting. Never again. No matter how much I wanted it.
I went to college. Got a degree. A job on Wall Street. Yet I still wasn’t smart enough to stay away. So now I’m back. And it’s just as bad as I remember.
Enter Dr. Susan Jones, superstar neurosurgeon. She’s brilliant, she’s sexy and she’s a pain in my ass. I can’t get enough and she’s too busy for a relationship. She wants to hook up, get off, go home. She doesn’t have time for a thug from Camden. But she keeps coming back.
This place brings out the worst in people. Every day it threatens the project I’m working on, the plans I’m making. Every day it drags me down just a little more, until the hands I vowed to keep clean start itching to get dirty.
If I don’t start fighting for what I want, I’ll wind up with nothing.
I didn’t come back to Camden for nothing.
I came back to start something. And when people hurt the things I care about, the gloves come off.
