Necessary Evil: Book One

On the Dark Web, Alanna Symone is the most precious commodity alive. Fathoms below in Deep Web, she is also the deadliest. Can hard-nosed, Homicide Detective Cassiel Garrett, figure out her next move or will a “Necessary Evil” kills them both?


“Necessary Evil kept me on the edge of my seat. What a compelling, gritty, and suspenseful read! The pace is fast, yet the author has the unique ability to slow things down for a long moment, creating deep and perfect studies of her characters.”-—Deborah O’Neill Cordes

“… a gripping, action-packed story filled with brave, honest characters and poetic, often heartbreaking prose. This is a story of star-crossed lovers that goes above and beyond.” Becky Flade

Spellbinding! This was a powerful, gritty, terrifyingly absorbing novel.-—Cary Morgan

Unfinished Business: Book Two

Sex … Blood … Diamonds. Human capital is the “new” oil. Drug cartels are the aristocracy. Bitcoin is king, but sex, blood, and diamonds rule the world.
Alana Symone walked away from that world when Homicide Detective Cassiel Garrett gave her his heart and a new life. Her betrayal has a price.


“Stephanie Freeman’s intense and emotional writing style will keep readers turning the pages in her newest suspense novel, Unfinished Business. This is an exciting, intense novel about people readers can like and respect, and whose love story is intense and believable.”—Katherine King

Kidnapping, passion, murder, trust, extortion, and forbidden love. Stephanie Freeman knows how to keep a reader on the edge of their seat. Unfinished Business wasn’t my first Stephanie Freeman novel and it won’t be my last. The flow of her writing style alone … poetic, uninhibited, brutally honest … is enough to keep you turning pages. I haven’t read the prequel, Necessary Evil, and never felt like I was missing something or a step behind.—Peggy Bird

Nature of the Beast: Book Three

Everything vanished in the heat of a kiss … One breath and the years spun away. Someone wants to kill Willow Daniels. Can she trust the enigmatic owner of a nightclub or will the secrets that surround him destroy them both?


“Stephanie Freeman’s Nature of the Beast is a gripping and suspenseful read. Ms. Freeman knows how to develop her characters; their happiness, rage, angst, and love is fully explored and etched as clearly as diamonds on glass. Her heroine and hero, Willow and Daniels, have tremendous obstacles to overcome, and I guarantee you will enjoy the twists and turns of their journey as they battle against the “beast,” while seeking to heal themselves and each other.”—Deborah O’Neill Cordes, Amazon Reviewer

“This was an exciting, emotional read, with excellent development of the protagonists’ journey toward a resolution of their own relationship and the danger surrounding them. Once I got into the story, it was hard to put it down. Amid the exciting world of federal agents dedicated to solving arsons, Willow and Harlem must remain one step ahead of an enemy who seems to know everything about them. Can Davis trust Willow with his own shattering secrets long enough to save her life?” —K. King, Amazon Reviewer

“Nature of the Beast is a story about fighting temptation, misunderstanding, and connection. It’s a story about loss. But mostly it’s a story about love. Recommended for anyone who loves a happily ever after, a strong heroine and a sexy male protagonist. And maybe even a little fire.”—Terri, Amazon Reviewer

“Davis is an incredibly sexy man with a cautious heart. Willow can’t seem to figure out why he brings back memories of her lost love. Freeman’s characters are people worth admiring. A smooth businessman and an FBI arson investigator. The plot is ever-developing with new twists throughout. I couldn’t put it down. Nicely done!”—R. T. Wolfe

”Stephanie Freedman is a fantastic storyteller who really knows how to draw her readers into a story. Dangerous mysteries drive this moving and unique story. Ms. Freedman keeps it interesting with a wounded, yet strong heroine, who knows her job and does it well, and an alpha male hero who takes his job of taking care of his heroine seriously – both of whose lives are threatened by the truth about their own pasts. Revenge, redemption, betrayal, and romance – you’ll find it all here.”—Amanda Shalaby

Season of the Blood: Book Four

‘Everything is for sale. Even the screams.’ Secrets drove gifted surgeon, Olivia Calderone, away from Shadow Bay. Now that she’s come home, will something more sinister be the death of her?. Homicide Lieutenant, Gabriel Garrett, is a man well acquainted with shadows and darkness.  With the discovery of a mass grave in his hometown that shines a light on an underworld no one realize existed, his second chance with a long lost soulmate hangs in the balance. Will his pursuit of justice restore a love interrupted or will the truth destroy them both?


I am reading Season of Blood by the otherworldly talented Stephanie M. Freeman . Have you ever read a book so darn good that you have to slow down to meticulously devour each and every letter? This is that kind of book! Y’all, I want to crawl up inside Steph’s mind and sit a spell!
