He might be innocent.

Or he might be very, very guilty…

Olympic skier Lock Roane was on top of the world: smashing world records, collecting medals, and basking in the love of a nation and his beautiful heiress girlfriend. It all comes crashing down after Lock discovers his girlfriend had an affair—then wakes from a drunken bender to find himself covered in her blood. Disgraced and dethroned, Lock awaits his murder trial with dread, not knowing if his girlfriend died at his own hands.

Journalist Jordan Sinclair is out of options. To satisfy her blackmailer, she must get the inside scoop (and its cash reward) on Lock Roane. An attraction to the arrogant athlete was not part of the plan. Neither is trying to find out what really happened that night. Now Jordan risks everything—including her life—to help the man she’s falling for. A man who just might be a cold-blooded killer…



"Locked, Loaded, & Lying is a standalone romantic suspense novel from Sarah Andre and was a highly entertaining read...There was nothing formulaic about it all, meaning the story and characters weren't what you'd find in your typical romance novel, so kudos to Sarah Andre for her inspiring creativity and more than laudable writing skills. Locked, Loaded, & Lying is a debut novel so worth reading, people, so pre-order it! This gets five stars." -Jennifer Valencia, Bookaholics-Not-So-Anonymous,
"Wow - what a fast paced thriller full of unexpected events, mysteries and enthralling action. I really enjoyed this superbly written page turner and didn't want to put it down till I found out the truth about what happened to Tiffany - and when I did, what a shock! A brilliantly written thriller that I highly recommend. I'll certainly be looking out for more by this brilliant author in future." -Splashes Into Books blog,

In Sarah Andre’s exciting debut novel, Olympic skier Lock Roane, accused of viciously slaying his troubled, drama-queen girlfriend a year ago, has laid low at his brother’s Colorado mountain cabin since he got out on bail. His trial starts soon, and the problem is, he doesn’t know if he’s guilty or ...more

Oscar Pistorius, anyone? That is the first thing that came to mind for me when I read the synopsis for this book. Maybe I jumped on this book because I followed and wrote articles on the Pistorius murder trial in 2014. In case you aren’t familiar with the case, it made international news, coming fro ...more

Great debut from Sarah Andre. Fast-paced page-turner loaded with suspense and sexual tension. Lock is a champion skier, in hiding while awaiting trial for a murder he may or may not have committed--he was found with his girlfriend's body but doesn't remember what happened--and Jordan is a free-lance ...more

Excellent read that is well written and full of suspense, deception, and romance. After a drunken blackout Locke, Olympic skier, awakes to find his fiancee dead, lying in a pool of blood. Since he's now the number one suspect, he goes into hiding to give his legal team time and stay away from the pa ...more

I really liked the mystery side of this story. Trying to figure out what had happened and what was going to happen as well as all the characters parts in it was really great. I liked seeing inside Lock's head where Jordan was concerned and I enjoyed seeing how strong and determined she was. I had a ...more

This great read by my fellow SWFRW writer has been languishing on my Kindle for a while now. I finally got around to reading it and it's a winner. If you like romantic suspense that surprises you at every turn, this book is for you. It has plenty of them.

Sarah Andre’s LOCKED, LOADED, & LYING is a fast moving mystery thriller with a great deal of intrigue and suspense on every page.

In reading Locked, Loaded, & Lying by Sarah Andre, I would have never suspected this was a debut novel. What an incredible talent! I can’t begin to describe how much I love this author’s voice. The descriptions are rich and authentic, the characters are multidimensional and compelling (not to mentio ...more

Lock Roane is a ski champion hiding out of the spotlight for his impending murder trial. Yes, murder. After having a fight with his girlfriend, he blacks out drunk and wakes to find her dead and himself covered in her blood. All this with no memory of what happened, so he can't defend the allegation ...more

Amazing book...Blew my mind...

Lock was totally without a doubt up a creek with what happened to his girlfriend.
Everything was pointing to him, and he was going away for a very long time. He doesn't remember what blackout..He admitted this no one.

Simply a good book! Locklen was such a good character. Super ego, so self assured and so changed when he found himself accused of murder. He was the big, strong brother of the twin boys, an Olympic skier with all the good looks. When he found himself in real trouble he turned to his twin, as usual, ...more

I was completely drawn into this story very quickly. I couldn't put it down and spent every opportunity I could get dipping into it- before work, at the breakfast table etc. There was good chemistry and banter between the characters which was quite amusing.

I thought that this was a great book, completely appeals to both romance readers and suspense readers. As a fan of books that have a bit of mystery and suspense I like that the romance didn’t over take the story. Yes, it was there but for me it was more about finding out who killed Lock’s girlfriend ...more

Excellent book! The author took two flawed characters with unlikabke personality traits and peeled away the layers bit by bit until the reader understood their motivations, sympathized and rooted for them to succeed. Tough task. Loved the Aspen setting populated by the skiing population and the rich ...more

Sarah Andre's debut book is absolutely amazing.

Cheese and monkeys this book is intense! A piece of advice: when you read this make sure you have no other plans for the day because you won’t want to put it down.
