Maggie Price turned
to crime at the age of twenty-two when she when to work for the Oklahoma City Police Department and a civilian crime analyst.
Her job as a crime analyst involved evaluating a suspect’s method of operation and developing profiles.
During her career with the Oklahoma City Police Department she worked a homicide task force, established procedures
for evidence submission and worked undercover.
Drawing on her 12 years of law enforcement experience, Maggie wrote her debut novel, Prime
Suspect. She has since written more than a dozen romantic suspense novels.
According to a reader of On
Dangerous Ground, “Whoever said it's not a question of IF Maggie Price goes mainstream, but WHEN,
is absolutely correct, and I hope it's soon. This is a great read from a talented writer. Wonderful hero/heroine, emotional
intensity, excellent writing, believable situations and responses, and a good, suspenseful plot to hold it all together. I
really enjoyed this book, and I look forward to finding her previous books, as well as to her future works. Don't let
the fact that this is a category romance keep you from buying, and enjoying, this book.”
According to a reader of Hidden
Agenda: Line of Duty, “As the title to this review says, this is one awesome read. I won't bore you
with the stuff you can read in the blurb about this book, but I will tell you that Carrie and Linc are two of the smartest
people I've read about in a long, long time. Smart enough to realize their attraction AND smart enough to do what's
right in their hearts...and by this I don't mean their impending relationship.
These two have scruples, and employ them appropriately. There aren't any 'too
stupid to live' actions on either of their parts, and the decisions they make are right on the money.
Both realize their unwise attraction,
and admit it, both to themselves and each other, and agree on a strictly 'work' relationship. Since this is a romance
novel, we know THAT won't happen, but it's the ride Ms. Price takes us on to get to the happily-ever-after ending
that makes this book memorable. Ms. Price obviously knows her police work, and it shows in this well-crafted book. This one
definitely goes on my keeper shelf, and I'm going to buy the first in this series today!”
According to a reader of Most
Wanted, “Oklahoma City homicide detective Whitney Shea worked the street as a hooker in a sting operation
to catch a serial killer who has murdered six prostitutes in three years. At the end of her undercover evening, Whitney bagged
fifty johns. However, the District Attorney bonded out her first catch of the day, Andrew Copeland, son of the powerful and
wealthy Stone Copeland, without him spending a second in a holding area. Whitney complains to the messenger, Assistant District
Attorney Bill Taylor that Copeland could be the killer.
Impressed by Whitney's fervor, Bill wants to help her with her investigation. Under the guise
of the newly created cooperation program, he joins her serial killer investigation. The killer knows that Whitney seeks him
out and begins a game of cat and mouse. The killer deliberately leaves clues for Whitney. Meanwhile, she and Bill work together,
but remain wary of relationships after being burned in the past by the opposite sex. However, the most unwanted emotion of
all, love has entered the equation.
Maggie Price has quickly become a fan favorite for her highly intense romantic suspense novels such as PRIME SUSPECT
and THE MAN SHE ALMOST MARRIED. Her new intrigue, MOST WANTED, is an excellent tale that the police procedural audience would
enjoy as much as the romance crowd. The story line provides the audience with insight into the police-district attorney's
office while wrapped inside a clever investigation and a warm romance. Characters from her two previous novels augment this
tale with a deep feel of law enforcement as well as coming home sense. Ms. Price hurdles two genres within a novel that will
leave readers seeking her other releases.”
According to a reader of Dangerous
Liaisons, “This book was really a great read. The characters were well thought out and you felt for them.
It was romantic and the sexual tension was tremendous! On the front of the book it says "in the tradition of Tami Hoag"
and I really have to agree. It was suspenseful and kept me guessing until the end. I would highly recommend this book. I am
now going to try and read some of Maggie Price's other books. If this book is anything to go by, she sounds like a great
According to the book description
of the Protecting Peggy, “When FBI special agent Rory Sinclair saw the woman who ran the guest
house where he was staying, she wasn't the apron-clad lady with graying hair tucked in a prim bun he'd envisioned.
Not even close. Peggy Honeywell was a young single mom whose seductive gaze nearly froze him in his tracks. Going undercover
to expose the danger looming at Colton-endowed Hopechest Ranch wasn't nearly so hard as pretending he didn't ache
to take this wary widow in his arms and make every room in her house theirs -- exclusively. And for the first time in his
life, this hardened lawman felt like more than his job was a stake . . . because protecting Peggy would be a lifetime commitment!
When California's most-talked-about dynasty is threatened, only family, privilege and the power of love can protect them!”
According to a reader of Prime
Suspect, “While I don't spend a lot of time reading fiction, I found that after the first few pages,
I had to keep taking time out to go back and read some more. It's wrote with such clarity that you can live in every scene,
on every page. You must keep on as you need to know the outcome of the story. If it was cowboys and outlaws then you can say
the good guys won. Its police and bad guys and the police won. Great Story.”
Oklahoma City Police Department

City of Oklahoma. The department consists of over 1,000 police officers and over 300 civilian law enforcement
