Inspector David and Miranda French Books


Running from a killer, Miranda is fighting for her and her son’s lives—and the chance to love again.

Miranda Raines believes she’s found a safe haven in Oxford, England, until Scotland Yard’s DCI David French knocks on her door with terrifying news: her ex-husband, a convicted murderer, has escaped from prison and he's coming for her. For years, Miranda has harbored a secret passion for the driven Chief Inspector. With no other choice, she has to trust him. She just hopes she can guard her heart, at least as well as he guards her.

After thwarting her ex's first attack, David spirits Miranda and her young son out of England, and the three of them end up on the run across Europe. David has no intention of falling in love again, but with each passing day Miranda awakens emotions he thought long dead.

Could this be their forever love? With a killer on their trail, they may not live long enough to find out.

Murder: Guaranteed to ruin a perfect honeymoon. 

After several days of newlywed bliss, Miranda French, the brand-spanking new Countess of Middlebury and her husband emerge from an East Anglia inn. She eagerly checks out one of the local antiques shops and stumbles over a body…a mutilated one.
The unfortunate victim was known to be a connoisseur of married women, so it’s a good bet one of the ladies’ husbands is the culprit. If there’s any hope of getting back to the “honey” part of her honeymoon, Randi will have to get involved in the investigation.

Detective Chief Inspector David French, Earl of Middlebury, has a lot more on his hands than an overly helpful bride, planted DNA, and more suspects than he can comfortably count. Sending Miranda home to the safety of their country estate may be the biggest mistake of his life. The killer's not finished. She’s next on his hit list.
