Donna Rigden has just lost the most important person in her life. She’s fed up with her boss at D'Netics Research Facility. She resigns - big mistake! Donna is now on the hit list of one of the most notorious men in the corporate US. He's without morals and doesn't accept the word 'no'.

Donna refuses to leave the US without saying goodbye to her parents and grandparents. While leaving the cemetery, she’s shot and whisked away to safety. Donna wakes up on her way to the UK.

Sir Richard, Donna's new employer showers her with luxury and makes her an offer she can't refuse. Now, once she's signed the contract, he asks her to use her medical expertise to commit murder.

Richard Triplet wants more from Donna than she’s willing to give; she feels trapped and desperate. She turns to a new friend for comfort. Her world is turned upside down. Two letters and two secrets steer her future. Donna must make a life changing choice. Once made, there's no going back. Was it the right choice?

Death strikes! Sam, the infirmary's doctor, is ordered to give his patient an untested drug. Sam knows the drug is either a cure or a curse, but goes against his patient’s wishes. Will he stand by his Hippocratic Oath or follow Sir Richard’s orders? Will it cure his patient or kill her?

Contains adult content but not 'erotic.'

Meet the Author

We started the 'A Vested Interest' series in 2007 and it took over a year before I came up with an ending we were happy with. At 170,000 words A Vested Interest was too long though. We cut it heavily but still ended with a 140,000 word book. There was no alternative, we had to split it into a two book series. Doing that, we thought, would allow us to put back some of the content we had cut and expand the second book (Dark Secrets) a little.
Well that was the plan. We ended up splitting the second book and making a trilogy by adding 'No Secrets'. The original ending didn't quite fit now so we moved it into a fourth book - Stones, Stars and Solutions.
And so it goes on. We are now writing book 10 and 11 of the series. Shelia has written a spin-off book 'Blood of the Rainbow' and is busy writing a sequel. Altogether it's 1.2 million words so far! In terms of time, we've only covered a few months. There is an end in sight but not for another 5,000 years. Maybe I'll get to use my original ending then?

About the Authors
John and Shelia Chapman are a husband and wife team who met on Internet and crossed the Atlantic to be together. John, an English ex-science and computer teacher contributed the technology and 'nasty' bits while Shelia drew on her medical experience in the USA and produced the romance. The humour? That came from real life.

    Interesting concept

    This book had an interesting concept that draws me to the next book in the series. Though it has a decent plot, the flow of the story was a bit difficult to follow. The authors keep changing the point of view between the characters which made some of the dialogue confusing to follow. Also, the characters themselves appear immature for people who are doctors and scientists. This would have received a higher rating if not for the constant and confusing change of views.

    Shalow, childish

    The characters are childish and the whole story is inconsistent, hard to follow. Stopped reading it on page 70 when I finally realised that it is nout going to improve.
