Jenny and Doug are barely married when Doug gets an urgent request from an old Marine buddy who is the new Security Man for the Saints Football Team in New Orleans. Doug fills Jenny in over their steak at home, “You remember my buddy who accepted the top Security post on the NFL? Well, he called and after flattering me until I asked why he’d really called, he asked me to help them investigate what may be infractions by players and some of the coaches. I told him I wanted to talk with you first and when I told him your maiden name he said you could have firsties on the publishing of the results.” Doug shared.

“How would you do this while with the FBI?” Jenny asked.
“I would have to either take a leave of absence or retire early….the other thing I wanted to discuss with you. You see, now that we are together and my life is crap without you by my side, the FBI part of my life is too invasive for my taste. I have enough money saved to live off of even if I didn’t go into Private Investigations, and of course I am vested, so we would still have my retirement when I hit 65, but how would you feel having me under foot so to speak most of the time…..and of course working together on investigations much as we did in Mexico?” Doug asked while he finished his steak.
Jenny was always amazed how Doug could eat while discussing the most important topics of his and her life as though these did not affect his appetite at all. For her she was through eating as soon as he brought up the topic of a changed lifestyle for them both.
“Well, I am flabbergasted, but yes, it sounds absolutely wonderful to think we would be able to share new cases all over the world as a normal part of our life together.” Jenny admitted while she twirled her fork around her salad plate.
From Thanksgiving in Memphis to a 300 year old Plantation Home for their hide-away for the holidays, the Nelsons find new excitement in their new relationship while continuing on their trek of ferreting out truth and fair-play while sharing that knowledge with the public through Jenny’s writing for Associated Press Free Lance.
Jenny and Doug meet and more….
After briefings they all began the assignment on the Gulf Coast…..
“One could see across the small ciudad to Laguna El Barril where the water in the sand pit was beautifully blue, which made sense if it was as deep as it was purported to be but it was surrounded by the pure white of the sand for which it was named. Looking East to the ocean was water the shades of green and blue showing its’ clarity in comparison. Between them were the adobe bricked businesses, casas, a municipal building or school and a cemetery.”…….
“The sun was truly setting now and the sky included the shade of their wine but also ochres and pale pinks as it dipped into the now darkened sea which faded to emeralds and mercury closest to the drug fighters who munched on crunchy trout that piqued the tongue with the spice and cooled their now heated mouths with the remaining wine being offered from the second bottle. Only the sound of chewing could be heard as each relaxed as much as they could while the realization of why they were here weighed on all their minds and instincts.”……..”Jenny was exhausted and slightly tipsy with the wine which had more alcohol in it than most. She decided to take a dip in the ocean for her bath and grabbed the bar of Zote she had brought with her and walked far enough away from the men to not be seen. She had forewarned Doug to not let any of them follow her and why, so she was only wary of any stranger who might be either innocently nearby or for a heinous reason close at hand. She finally found a wee bit of a cove which seemed deserted and slipped off her clothes and walked into the ocean far enough to be able to sit on the bottom and wash her hair. The water was very refreshing, warm but not too warm and after a lathing of the soap on her hair and body she felt renewed. She rinsed off and walked on her elbows to the sand where her clothes awaited her.
“Looking for something little lady?” Doug asked, holding her clothing.
“Brat!” Jenny hollered.
““I just wanted to be sure no one but me could see you in your altogether, so I followed you.” Doug admitted.
The sunset was the most brilliant reddish orange they had either one seen though they would appear to have eyes only for one another.
By now Doug had removed his clothing and was also in the water. He grabbed her ankle and pulled her into it catching her off guard. She swallowed enough salt water to gasp and grabbed his butt in retaliation while she pulled herself up enough to breathe again. They wrestled with one another until their movements became more sensuous than aggressive and Jenny felt Doug’s…..”

This is the sequel to Loosiana~Land of Passion which was the sequel to At First Glance. Both of these forerunners to Deep Water are about Jennifer Lee Stewart who was and always has been a writer. Her work began as a reporter for the local newspaper during college and afterward, and after she married and became pregnant in Baton Rouge, she began writing for API as a freelance writer. She branched into Romance Novels for steadier income until the children grew up. Her first husband was Kenneth Olson, an architect who after 25 years of marriage to Jenny takes a mistress in his assistant. Jenny catches them in flagrante delicto in her and Ken’s bed and realizes she and Ken haven’t enough left between them as a couple since their last child left the nest, to try to repair their marriage. After a quick divorce, Jenny moves to a smaller home next door to a hunk who immediately is attracted to her as well. This hunky neighbor, Douglas Campbell Nelson, who shares with her that his credentials include being a CPA for the government, finds he must warn her on her first night in her new home that their neighbors could be a danger to her. Before their second date is over they both receive phone calls from their bosses and are assigned immediately to Mexico in pursuit of one the most corrupt cartels….the Los Endekas (in this novel Los Zetas) who have just buried innocent tourists and locals in Tamaulipas, Mexico after stealing their money, jewelry and raping them. Their assignments pair them (Jenny as a free-lance writer for API and Doug as an FBI Agent) from the beginning on their flight to Mexico where Jenny figures out that Doug is more than a CPA and their futures take on an exciting and romantic twist while pursuing the drug runners along the Gulf Coast.
In Loosiana~Land of Passion Jenny and Doug are now married and Doug is asked to assist an old Marine buddy/ex FBI Agent/Friend who is attempting to determine if the Football Bounty problem is true or not midst the Saints Football Team in New Orleans. Doug takes a Leave of Absence from the FBI in order to help his buddy and Jenny accompanies him in order to make his cover as Recruiter and his Wife seem more kosher as undercover work dictates. He and Jenny soon find the mafia is involved and the FBI decides they want them both representing the FBI in order to keep better tabs on the mafia and its’ involvement in the Bounty situation. Great food, a kidnap, a 300 year old River Plantation with a ghost which takes over Jenny at every opportunity and fantastic sex between the newlyweds keeps Loosiana~Land of Passion humming along until the surprising end.
Now Doug and Jenny are being asked by the FBI to follow up on their OP-Mission Interception found in At First Glance with a new mission in Algeciras, Spain…….
PublishAmerica is proud to announce the recent release of Kathleen Boston McCune’s new book: Anne!
ANNE..1st generation Kansas Pioneer Woman…her real life.
Here’s what the author says about the book: Anne is the feisty red-haired, spoiled yet fun filled daughter of Perry and Serena Campbell born in 1869 Kansas. Her life will be filled with Cowboys, Indians, Barn Dances and rough weather. Falling in love with the Cowboy Lon Boston gives Anne the impetus to continue in the rough and tumble Kansas where just surviving can pull the beauty from a rose in less than a day. His quiet gentleness, impeccable demeanor and respect from his peers won him to her heart even before she noticed how handsome he was. Lon, 6’4″”, with black wavy hair, pale blue eyes and sweeping handlebar moustache rode a horse as though born on one. His quiet commanding voice was the antithesis to her too quick fits of temper. He found the sprightly Anne, barely 5′ tall, fiery green eyes, a tangle of bright curly crimson hair the challenge he was eager to tangle up with for the rest of his life.
