Two heroines. Two heroes. Twice the romance and adventure!

The Spy Who Kissed Me

Her mom had been hoping a man would fall in her lap, but this wasn’t what mama had in mind…

A murder in the suburbs puts children’s author, Isabel “Stan” Stanley directly in the path of CIA agent Kelvin “Kel” Kapone. A cute smile can help—but not hide—the ominous name or the hail of bullets. The smile—and his access to firearms—do help as they try to survive mayhem in the suburbs long enough for their happy ever after.

Do Wah Diddy Die

He’s either going to kiss her or kill himself to get away from her…

New Orleans Police detective Mickey Ross thought knew every variation of weird.
He was wrong.
He didn’t know Luci Seymour. Until now.
Neither he—nor New Orleans—would ever be the same again.

Do Wah Diddy Delete
Lucy and Mickey’s adventures continue in two short stories. And as a final bonus, an editor must clear her name when her nasty colleague is found “deleted” with her letter opener.

Mayhem has never been so much fun! Grab this bundle while you can!

If you like offbeat humor and outrageous situations, you’ll love Pauline Baird Jones’ action-packed bundle!

Reviews:on The Lover's Knot:

"Pauline Baird Jones brings us on a delightfully wild caper through mystery, adventure and love in her debut book. I laughed right from the beginning and was sorry the story had to end. "

on Affair de Coeur:

"[The Spy Who Kissed Me] is one of those books that defies categorization. It's romantic, mysterious, adventurous, suspenseful. And it has a great title. Ms. Jones has a way with a plot. A very winding, twisting, intriguing way. She also has a way with characters, and a way with dialogue. Yet another unique and immensely talented author who has written a unique and imminently satisfying book. Oh and by the way, it's funny too. Really funny, not just slapstick funny. And books that are really funny are not that easy to find." Four & 1/2 stars

on Sharpwriter.com:

"[The Spy Who Kissed Me] is one of those stories that has romance, mystery, and at times makes the reader laugh. Isabel and Kelvin keep the reader guessing whether they will ever get a chance to take their attraction to another level. The secondary characters are many, but they do not overwhelm the story or the main characters. It is one of those stories that will hold your attention until the end, even if it is only trying to find out who the bad guys are." Highly recommended.
