I Am Justice Review by PW

What a wonderful surprise to find in my inbox! I’m so excited that Publishers Weekly has chosen to do a review for I Am Justice. You can read this powerful review online here, but just in case you don’t have a PW account, you can also read the review below.

“In this gritty launch of the Band of Sisters romantic suspense series, Stewart plays adeptly with the reader’s emotions. As a child, Justice Parish was sold to human traffickers who killed her sister Hope. After being rescued, Justice was adopted by a family of powerful women who train her to take on her abusers. Sandesh Ross has his own demons to slay from his days in Special Forces; he finds salvation in founding a Middle Eastern charity, the International Peace Team, devoted to saving refugee women from human traffickers. When Sandesh meets Justice, their chemistry is immediate and explosive. But, as they join forces to help the vulnerable, they’re faced with the unmistakable fact that someone in the Parish family is feeding information to their enemies. Stewart includes disturbing and graphic descriptions of child abuse and doesn’t shy away from describing the unfettered violence that the traffickers inflict on their victims. Stewart also masterfully drags a series of red herrings into the tale before delivering a most unexpected traitor. This forceful novel isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but those who can handle the violence will find the story powerful and memorable. Agent: Michelle Grajkowski, 3 Seas Literary. (May)”

Fiercely Female 2018


I am in absolute love with the new promotional packet sent out by Sourcebooks Casablanca. It’s titled, “Fiercely Female 2018.” Sounds about right. So thrilled to have the first book in my Band of Sister series, I Am Justice included in this wonderful package. Though I wasn’t one of the lucky people who received the materials, I was lucky enough to be given a shoutout on Instagram from the lovely and talented Sarah MacLean. Hopefully she won’t mind be “borrowing” this photo. A thousand and one kisses and thanks to the wonderful team at SourcebookCasa for putting this together!



Though I’m hard at work finishing up book 3 in the Band of Sister series—I Am Honor—and loving every minute of this crazy ride, I am taking a slight break to flirt with you, dear reader. To make googly eyes at you. To rub your leg under the table. To give you that come-hither stare. Basically, I’m book teasing you. It’s a thing that publishers make us do. So here’s a flirtatious look at I Am Justice…
