Who says you can't go home again?

Hunter Agency operative Kimmer Reed has been assigned to the home town she barely survived as a child, charged with protecting a computer genius who holds more secrets than she ought to. Vastly changed, greatly disguised, and still as fierce as she ever was, Kimmer is ready for anything--even submersion in the place she once fled.

Or so Kimmer thinks. But the computer genius is already compromised, and the woman's personal bodyguard, Rio Carlsen, knows nothing of it--or of Kimmer. Well, no big deal in KimmerWorld. She's ready to evade them all, from bad guys to bodyguard.

That is, until it's time to take the bad guys down. But as she desperately scrambles to save the people in her present, she'll have to decide if she's ready to stop running from her past.


"Imagine the pace of the TV show Alias, the smart, emotional whammy of Buffy, and characters you care about every minute."
--Julie Czerneda, Aurora-winning Author of the Night's Edge series

About Kimmer & Rio in BEYOND THE RULES:

"Doranna Durgin's BEYOND THE RULES is action-packed from start to finish. Kimmer is so strong that readers won't doubt for even a minute that she'll come out on top in the end. And Rio is a hero any woman could love."
--Romantic Times, Four Stars

About MAKING THE RULES, from Smashwords & Amazon:

"Having read the first two books in the series, I thoroughly enjoyed the further adventures of Kimmer & Rio...In this story you get to see how Kimmer & Rio learn to trust themselves as partners when they are tested by outside forces. They know they are capable individually but this answers the questions of how they cope together. Great story, great characters, great author!" --Natski
"I've been a Doranna Durgin fan for years, and she consistently delivers all the things I like in a book...she doesn't disappoint in this, her first self-published book, either." --Karen Gould

"If you are looking for a story to help you fall asleep, don't pick this one. Kimmer and Rio are a good match, work well together, worry about each other and get the job done. Doranna Durgin has given us another great book." --Charles Thompson
