Concrete Evidence

A year ago she lost everything. Now she wants revenge...

Accused of stealing artifacts from a five-hundred-year-old shipwreck, underwater archaeologist Erica Kesling is determined to clear her name. She's concealed her past and taken a job certain to give her access to the buyer of the missing antiquities. She's finally closing in on her goal when she's distracted by a sexy, charismatic intern who makes her want something other than revenge.

But Lee Scott is no intern. He's looking for the lead conspirator in an international artifact smuggling scheme, and Erica is his prime suspect. He'll do whatever it takes to win her trust and get her to reveal her secrets, even seduce her.

As Erica and Lee struggle to conceal their real agendas, the one thing they can't hide is the attraction that burns hot between them. When Erica's quest puts her life in jeopardy, Lee must choose between old loyalties and a woman he never expected to fall for.

Body of Evidence

And she thought facing a firing squad was bad...

When archaeologist Mara Garrett traveled to North Korea to retrieve the remains of GIs lost in combat, she never imagined she'd be arrested, convicted of spying, and sentenced to death. Her only hope is Curt Dominick, the powerful, ambitious, and infuriatingly sexy US attorney prosecuting her uncle, a former vice president of the United States.

What starts off as a rescue mission quickly morphs into a race across the Pacific. Someone is after Mara, and they'll risk everything to stop her from reaching Washington DC. With betrayal around every corner, Curt and Mara have little reason to trust each other and every reason to deny the sparks between them that blaze hotter than the Hawaiian sun. Still, desire clashes with loyalty when they discover a conspiracy that threatens not only their lives but the national security of the United States.

Withholding Evidence

Some secrets are worth dying for...

Military historian Trina Sorensen has a nearly impossible task before her: get recalcitrant but tempting former Navy SEAL Keith Hatcher to reveal what happened during a top secret Somalia op five years ago. Recent history isn't usually her forte, but the navy wants an historian's perspective and has given her the high security clearance to get the job done.

Keith isn't just refusing to tell Trina about the op, he's protecting a national secret that could destroy the lives of those he cares about the most. But not wanting to talk about a covert mission doesn't mean he isn't interested in spending time with the sexy historian, and the first time they kiss it's explosive.

When the past comes pounding on Keith's door, he'll do anything to keep Trina safe... Anything, that is, except tell her the secret that could get them both killed.

Concrete Evidence - This is how you write a debut book. The authors’ knowledge of archaeology, historic art and Native American sites was evident through the book. The story which starts off in 1952 is like one large jigsaw puzzle that takes the course of the book to piece together before  finally seeing the whole picture. Erica Kesling didn’t have an easy childhood after her father died. Her credit ruined and blackballed from being able to use her degree  in underwater archaeologist she now works for a large company on a different coast as a land archeologist looking for a way to make  those pay who had a part in setting her up. From here the author takes us on a journey that arouses your curiosity as to what is really going on. Its full of crafty plotting and intrigues throughout. There were a few loose ends that I am hoping will be wrapped up in future books but this reader is happy to have found a new romantic suspense author and I look forward to more books from her. Body of Evidence Gripping from beginning to end. This fast paced action thriller snags you from the first chapter and doesn’t let go until the very last page. When you read an enormous amount of suspense books you tend to run into the same story, different author. I can honestly say I have never read the things that were depicted in this book before. I don’t consider this a spoiler as its in the blurb but with an opening of the heroine, Mara Garrett, being on trial in North Korea for spying then being sentence to death by firing squad all in the first chapter you know you’re in for a wild ride. Let me tell you the action doesn’t stop there. It only gets bigger. The heroine’s job was one I had not heard before. She goes into foreign countries to retrieve the bodies of service men lost in combat. This could range from WWII to current day. You could tell the author did her homework on Joint POW/MIA archaeologists and portrayed  the work that the JPAC does with pride. JPAC’s latest retrieval has her team going to North Korea, a place we are not on friendly terms with and many protocols have to be met. When a team member betrays her, this gets her arrested and sentenced to death. Her savior comes in an unlikely ally. The man currently trying to put her uncle – the ex vice president – away for treason and making deals with  terrorist, US attorney Curt Dominick. But if you think that that’s where the action ends think again. Curt doesn’t know if he can trust Mara thinking she may know about her uncle’s crimes and be protecting him. Mara doesn’t trust Curt because there is no way her uncle could have committed what they are accusing him of but she is also struggling with a bit a hero worship to the man that saved her. Curt and Mara’s wild adventure takes them from Hawaii to Washington, DC and many states in between with one harrowing thing happening to them after another. Just when you think it  safe to breathe another thing happens that puts them in danger. There is so much going on in this book but yet your never lost – you just keep turning the pages to find out what is going to happen next. This is hands down the best book I’ve read this year. I cannot wait to see what is next from this up and coming author that can write suspense like nobody’s business. Withholding Evidence Every book in this series amazes me with not only introducing real life aspects of archaeologists of all forms but also in giving us glimpses into the jobs we don’t always hear about our men and women doing in war torn countries. Have you heard the term Bait  and Switch? Well the author got me good. If you’ve read the other books in the series especially the 2nd book you she likes to start off with a thrilling ride and never let up until the last page. Well she had me fooled the first couple of chapters in this one. Trina Sorensen  is a military historian with NHHC (Navel History and Heritage Command). She’s fought hard to get to where she is in what was considered a man’s only world in the past. Her latest assignment is to gather and write from a historians view point about what  happened in Somalia five years ago with a Seal team. Not used to working on something where the people are still living she not quite ready for the reception she gets from one of the men she needs to interview. Keith Hatcher cannot believe when a woman shows up on his doorstep looking like the sexiest librarian he’s ever seen (which it seems he has a secret fetish for) and the sexual banter  between these two was funny and hot until she tells him why she is there he waste no time in telling her she is wasting her time and  he will never talk about that mission in Somalia. Where the bait and switch comes in is the first couple of chapters are the back and  forth between Keith and Trina when Keith decides he’d like to pursue the sexual chemistry between them. They meet again at a political party but things don’t go any better that night. Every character we’ve met in the previous books is back in this one. Mara is Trina’s boss and Erica is her co-worker. It was great getting to see them again with their men. So yeah you’re comfortable now in just thinking this is just a romance with no action or suspense and then BAM the author throws you for a loop and the next thing you know these two are running for their lives and trying to figure out what’s going on. Is the treat against Keith for what he knows about Somalia or has Trina somehow uncovered something in her research? This was another wild ride in a series I’ve come to love and look forward to the next adventure.
