Connor Maguire

Hometown: Cornelius, North Carolina

Job: Police officer/operator on the North Meck SWAT team

How deeply does your job define you as a person?

I chose my career for a reason. I wanted to keep people safe, and help those who couldn’t help themselves. I completed the SWAT training so that I can be better prepared for any dangerous situations that might come up. I can’t imagine doing anything else.

What’s your most prized possession?

I’m tempted to say my truck—and I really love my truck—but it’d be my dog, Penny.

What do you like to do in your down time?

Test adventure tours with my friend, Wes. Fishing’s always great, and hanging out with Kaleb and his family—especially now that his little sister is living with him—or going to visit my family is always fun. Dinner at the Rusty Anchor, or kicking back to watch TV with my dog by my side.

Resistin the Hero Button 300 x 225Whom would you contact first to share good news?

My partner Kaleb

Pet Peeve?

Cases I can’t get to stick, especially when it involves someone hurting someone else.

What’s something most people don’t know about you?

I speak Italian.

What has Faith changed your mind about since you met?

That maybe letting someone in isn’t as bad an idea as I thought. And that some things are worth fighting for.

Book Description

Resisting her brother’s best friend is futile…

Faith Fitzpatrick isn’t looking for a hero. Burned one too many times in the past, she’s now sworn them off completely. And when her brother’s best friend, Connor, convinces him to join the dangerous SWAT team, Faith has never been more anti-hero. What’s wrong with having a safe job? There’s nothing safe about Connor. Confident, sexy, and sporting a six-pack that should be illegal, he’s everything she doesn’t want.

When his best friend’s sister moves to town, local cop Connor Maguire knows he’s in trouble. Faith is feisty, funny, and talks trash like nobody’s business. She’s also his partner’s sister—and so totally off limits. Working on the Fall Festival together, they agree to a truce and become friends. But the more time Connor spends with Faith, the more he’s willing to risk the wrath of her brother. If he could only convince her to take a risk on him, too.

About the Author

Cindi Madsen sits at her computer every chance she gets, plotting revising, and falling in love with her characters. Sometimes it makes her a crazy person. Without it, she’d be even crazier. She has way too many shoes, but can always find a reason to buy a new pretty pair, especially if they’re sparkly, colorful, or super tall. She loves music, dancing, and wishes summer lasted all year long.

She lives in Colorado (where summer is most definitely NOT all year long) with her husband and three children. She is the author of YA novels All the Broken Pieces and Demons of the Sun, adult contemporary romances Falling for Her Fiancé and Act Like You love Me, and the women’s fiction novel Cinderella Screwed Me Over.
