The Smoking Gun: A Kelly Family Novel

Kelly Family Series #6

Author Lashell Collins

Genre: Romantic Suspense

New Release – September 20, 2015


The Kelly Family is back, and this time they must save one of their own!

Despite all the sibling rivalry over the years, the Kelly boys are tight. Everyone knows that. Even though on the surface they couldn’t be more different. Sweet, sexy Ethan is the fun-loving, gentle soul, while his older brother, Storm, is the hot-as-sin, bad-boy, panty-melting Dom. And though they’re both sworn to uphold the law as members of the Eastwood Police Department, their private lives are as wickedly divergent as the two amazingly beautiful women who share their beds. But when Ethan gets himself into a world of trouble on the job, it’s up to Storm to get to the truth and clear his little brother’s good name.

The Smoking Gun features two of your favorite Kelly Family couples, Storm and Nina, and Ethan and Heather, all in one book

He hated this case. One look at that poor, battered and emotionally broken young woman and Storm Kelly knew that he hated this case with a passion. Never mind the fact that he had spent nearly two months spinning his wheels on this one, on top of his already heavy case load. That wasn’t it. Storm never minded hard work. What he did mind though was chasing shadows and ghosts, and for some reason, whoever was behind this particular crime spree seemed to have the amazing ability to elude all of his efforts to find them. But even that wasn’t the issue tonight.

No. The problem tonight was that this case had just taken a vile turn that Storm couldn’t stomach. He was all for dispensing a measure of pain along with the pleasure, but there was a huge difference between that and what these dirtbags had done to that girl. She couldn’t have been much older than twenty, maybe twenty-two. His blood boiled as he watched the paramedics finally getting her loaded onto the gurney. Rape made him sick. Women were such exquisite creatures – they were meant to be cherished and protected. Fucked beyond all senses, to be sure, but cherished and protected at all costs.

“Though she may take pain well, and may even have a tough attitude, inside she is much more delicate than you could ever imagine. So yes, fuck her hard, but make sure you love her tenderly.”

The voice of his former mentor echoed in his head as he thought about the differences between inflicting pain within the confines of discipline and safe consensual play, and inflicting pain for the sheer sake of brutality and cruelty. The contrasts were staggering, and those who refused to see that — those who condemned the lifestyle as domestic violence and demeaning toward women — they simply didn’t understand. But that was neither here nor there, and right now he had a case to concentrate on. He watched until the ambulance pulled away from the curb, lights and sirens blaring as they sped off toward the hospital. Then he turned his attention back to the scene inside the house. It looked eerily similar to all the others. 

Author Bio & Links:

Lashell Collins spent the last twenty years of her life working in Veterinary Hospitals and Garden Centers. But whether she was surrounded by the adorable puppies and kittens she helped care for, or by the beautiful flowers, trees and shrubs, she constantly pursued her favorite pastime – reading romance novels and imagining herself as the heroine in each and every one of them. She began writing as a way to work through her grief after the loss of a few people who were special to her, and she found it to be cathartic, so she kept at it. She self-published her first novel in 2013. Since then, Lashell has self-published ten titles across two series – the Pierced Trilogy (romantic suspense), and the Jagged Ivory Series (contemporary romance) – and is hard at work on another two series for this year. All of Lashell’s stories are full of heart and romance, with smart dialogue and spicy sex scenes. 

When she’s not writing, Lashell enjoys reading, shopping, eating Chinese food, and riding on the back of her husband’s Harley-Davidson. She loves watching General Hospital and Grimm. She is a huge music fan and is completely obsessed with Slash. Lashell is a member of the Romance Writers of America. Drop her a line; she loves to hear from readers.






If you have read about all of the Kelly clan then you know what their story is. This book is told from all their POV and more. Each member has issues but it's up to all of them to step up and help one another out. Murder, lies, and mayhem is what this is and it will keep you on your toes through the entire book. Storm was always my favorite and I'm glad I got to read more about him and his relationship. When a case hits to close to home can any of them survive? Just remember when reading this book it's about the story, the love story of each and every member of the Kelly family and their sacrifices as police officers.

Except now my woman wants to leave me, ‘cause I can’t promise her forever. I know I’d never want anyone else but she wants the ring to prove it. Not to mention the baby. But if she knew about my past she’d run far and fast. Then I’d have no choice but to chase her, ‘cause I can’t let her get away. Cory I hate him. I love him. I want him. I need him. I hate myself for being weak and caving every every time he touches me. But I can’t help myself. He’s just that good. I can’t get over him if I’m always under him, but he’s not letting me go without a fight and you’d have to have an iron will to resist this man.
