The Keepers Series

March 25, 2021

Psychological Fiction/Suspense & Thriller




The Keepers series will keep you on the edge of your seat as Cane and Charlie find romance on the run amidst a cult uprising, a diabolical killer who won’t stay dead and a trail of bodies from Vegas to Portland…

Victim turned witness, Charlie finds herself the center of a blood bath, back in protective custody and safe in the arms of bodyguard Cane O’Reilly.

When the lights go out in Portland, it’s Vegas all over again, as the diabolical killers take to the streets and try to shake Charlie out of hiding.

From copycats to cold blooded, there is no rest for the wicked, but if Anson is dead who’s calling the shots?










“I might have survived a tragedy, but I didn’t truly survive until I met you, and you helped put the broken pieces back together with me.”

Close Encounter part 2 continues with full on suspense in this fast paced conclusion to Cane’s and Charlies story. Cane and Charlie are now in Portland and trouble has followed them. Is Anson still alive or is it cult-like/serial killer groupies avenging his death?

Stephanie weaves suspense, steamy romance, evil villains, hi-tech intelligence among the plots of her romantic suspense series along with lite/comical moments to balance out the intensity of her fast paced books.

I’m in love with Killion who is a giant, burly, badass nerd. He’s very literal, everything is black and white. I couldn’t get enough of him and eagerly wait for his story.
