BURIED ALIVE (Book 1)
When loner homicide detective, Hunter Markum, finds the skeletons of four women in a mass grave just outside Tampa, Florida, he’s distraught as hell. It leaves a bitter taste in his mouth, as it’s a harsh reminder of his own sister's unsolved murder.
For the first time in his career, the usually detached Hunter feels a more personal connection to this case, and agrees to team up with Dr. Kerry Herlihy, a forensic anthropologist, in the hopes she can decipher the buried bones. Her compassion for these cold case victims draws her to him.
Kerry too finds Hunter's strong family attachment appealing, as her family abandoned her as a child, but she tamps down her desires. The case must come first.
Against their will, the attraction ignites, and their quest to find the killer soon reveals the identities of the victims and the chilling fact that each woman had been abused. When Kerry's work throws her directly in the killer's path, Hunter realizes how much she's come to mean to him. In a race against the clock, Hunter must apprehend the murderer if he hopes to save the woman he loves once she's buried alive.
BURIED SECRETS (Book 2)
When rookie Tampa Police Officer, Jenna Holliday, goes undercover at a local occult store to investigate a rash of grave robberies, she never expects to become the victim of a black magic death spell.
Dr. Sam Bonita, a forensic anthropologist, in search of answers regarding a headless body, visits the store where Jenna works and is enchanted by her.
Believing Sam holds the key to her case, Jenna tries to get close to him. When his house is burned to the ground, with both of them inside, she's unsure if her cover has been blown or if Sam is the object of some deranged killer.
Only after a series of murders, and a few death threats, do Jenna and Sam suspect a serial killer is on the loose and after both of them.
BURIED DEEP(Book 3)
When forensic anthropologist, Dr. Lara Romano, first examines the exhumed skeletons of two Native American men buried in Tampa, she has no idea she’s caught the eye of a serial killer who’s intent on dipping her in plaster and covering her in hot wax to complete a twisted ode to his Seminole mother.
Isolated by her profound hearing loss she suffered as a child, Lara jumps at the chance to work in the field and prove she’s as competent as any hearing scientist. Not even the easy-on-the-eyes cop bucking to work with her will distract her from her goal.
Missing Persons detective, Jake Kinsey, needs a high profile case to land him a job in Homicide. Though he suspects the attractive rookie scientist may hinder his success, he believes the cadavers in Lara’s investigation are linked to his current case—eight missing men, all Native Americans, believed to be dead.
What Jake and Lara don’t realize is that the missing bodies have been left in plain sight as part of a tableau constructed by the madman who plans to use Lara and Jake for his final scene.
I love to read and I love to write. First and foremost, I want my books to keep the reader on the edge of her seat. But I also want her to fall in love with the characters. Romantic suspense is the perfect blend of providing that heightened sense of drama to keep the adrenaline pumping, and giving the reader that hot hero and smart heroine who are so right for each other. Enjoy.
