By now you have probably discovered that there are two - or three - of me. Well, not really. I'm the Valerie Hansen who writes Christian Romance, Suspense and Historical fiction. This is my maiden name and much easier to spell and remember than my married name. I've been published since the 1980s and have over 50 books to my credit, most of which were written as Valerie Hansen. You can visit my website www.ValerieHansen.com to read excerpts and will find virtually all of my books still available through Amazon.com. AND NOW ALSO MANY ON KINDLE - INCLUDING ONE I HAVE JUST REISSUED ON MY OWN! WAGES OF SIN is longer and grittier than my usual Love Inspired titles. Good thing it's on Kindle of you might have trouble holding up all the pages. :) I'm thrilled that having my work on Kindle allows so many of my loyal readers to continue to find my books even after they're out of print. I don't have a blog right now but do participate as a guest on others. Since I'm still working to complete the contract to write 7 more books for Love Inspired as well as an additional 8th, I hardly have time to breathe, let along blog! (I have just finished the 5th of the 8. Whew!)(I can always find time for chocolate, though)I've tried to add the awards each of my books has won to their individual listings but it's a really big job.

I really enjoyed this book. It was full of action and animals . I received this book for free and voluntarily choose to review it. It pulled me in and hooked me in short order. I've given it a 5* rating. Outstanding suspense with heart. Not suitable for under 18 readers because of violence.

Small Town Justice is my first book by Valerie Hansen. I was very pleased with this well-written book. Jamie and Shane's story is full of suspense, drama, humor and a tiny hint of spice. There are no sex scenes in this book. I especially liked the characters, they are fantastic. I enjoyed Small...
