It’s release day for Rogue Hearts, a collection of six resistance romances by Suleikha Snyder, Stacey Agdern, Kelly Maher, Amy Jo Cousins, Tamsen Parker, and myself.
My story is about a woman running for the state legislature and falling for her campaign advisor. It’s set in Montana and it’s packed with cross-x debate references. Elements of it have been floating around in my head since I was working on Party Lines many years ago; I just had to wait for the right moment to tell it.
My three Rogue novellas work together as a group. “Kissing and Other Forms of Sedition” is about choosing hope over fear, “The Fourth Estate” is about persisting when you’re exhausted, and “Run” is about taking risks for the right reasons. I’m thrilled to share this final piece in my Rogue puzzle with you.
You can get Rogue Hearts at Amazon, B&N, iBooks, Google Play, and Kobo, add it to your Goodreads shelves, and check out my story’s board on Pinterest. But click fast because while it’s 99 cents now, that price will go up to $3.99 next week.

My story is called “Run.”
Public defender Maddie Clark doesn’t want to be a candidate for the state senate—but she’s running. Her high school nemesis turned campaign advisor Adam Kadlick shouldn’t be back home managing campaigns—but he is. They definitely should avoid falling for each other—but they won’t.
I’ve wanted to write a woman seeking political office for years. I considering making one of the presidential candidates in Party Lines a woman, but I worried that it would be distracting, that I would want the entire book to be about her. I promised myself I’d write about a female candidate someday, and my final Rogue series story seemed like the right time.
As you probably expect from me, Maddie and Adam’s story is bantery and deeply nerdy. If you’ve felt like romance suffers from a decided lack of Cross-X debate references, this one’s for you. It’s 19K, or short novella length, and the Pinterest board is here.
“Run,” like “The Fourth Estate,” ended up lower heat, but hey, it includes a diatribe on the Fourth Amendment, so that balances things out (?). And if you liked the Montana setting of “Free,” you’ll enjoy this too.
You can preorder Rogue Hearts for 99 cents at Amazon, B&N, iBooks, Google Play, and Kobo and you can add it to your Goodreads shelves. The price will go up to $3.99 after release week. If you’re a reviewer and are interested in an ARC, you can request one here.
