About the Author

Always an adventurer in life as well as writing, New York Times best-selling author Cherry Adair moved halfway across the globe from Cape Town, South Africa to the United States in her early years to become an interior designer. She started what eventually became a thriving interior design business. “I loved being a designer because it was varied and creative, and I enjoyed working with the public.” A voracious reader when she was able to carve out the time, Cherry found her brain crowded with characters and stories of her own.
“Eventually,” she says, “the stories demanded to be told.” Now a resident of the Pacific Northwest she shares the award- winning adventures of her fictional T-FLAC counter terrorism operatives with her readers. When asked why she chooses to write romantic action adventure, she says, “Who says you can’t have adventure and a great love life? Of course if you’re talking about an adventurous love life, that’s another thing altogether. I write romantic suspense coupled with heart-pounding adventure because I like to entertain, and nothing keeps readers happier than a rollercoaster read, followed by a happy ending.”
Popular on the workshop circuit, Cherry gives lively classes on writing and the writing life. Pulling no punches when asked how to become a published writer, Cherry insists, “Sit your butt in the chair and write. There’s no magic to it. Writing is hard work. It isn’t for sissies or whiners.”
Cherry loves to spend time at home. A corner desk keeps her focused on writing, but the windows behind her, with a panoramic view of the front gardens, are always calling her to come outside and play. Her office has nine-foot ceilings, a fireplace, a television and built-in bookcases that house approximately 3,500 books.
“What can I say? My keeper shelf has been breeding in the middle of the night, rather like dry cleaners’ wire clothes hangers.”
Cherry Adair’s innovative action-adventure novels have appeared on numerous bestsellers lists, won dozens of awards and garnered praise from reviewers and fans alike.
With the creation of her kick-butt counterterrorist group, T-FLAC, years before action adventure romances were popular. Cherry has carved a niche for herself with her sexy, sassy, fast-paced novels.

Another fast paced, heart pounding romance from Cherry Adair. Loved this book, loved the relationship between Gideon & Riva. I enjoy when characters from previous books make a showing, and there were plenty of cameos here. The only this missing was an explanation of why Zak couldn't see that Gideon was still alive.

Gideon’s story is finally here, and as much as I could not wait to read it it was definitely worth it. Gideon and Riva are Amazing Together! Cherry Adair has given us the action-packed adventure we have come to expect from her with a romance story that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end. This is another great story in the Lodestone/T-FLAC series. I can’t wait to see what Ms. Adair comes up with next.

Gideon by Cherry Adair is a fantastic read. Even better than Hush, the first book in the series, which I didn't think was possible. She does an amazing job bringing Gideon back from the dead, giving Rica Rimaldi a happy future, and reuniting Gideon with his family. Great series. Definitely worth buying and keeping all that Lodestone/TFLAC novels

GIDEON is a thrill-a-minute, edge-of-your seat ride. Cherry never disappoints - her writing is hot, passionate, and hits the mark every time. GIDEON is the second book in the T-FLAC series (HUSH is the first book) and can be read as a stand-alone or in order. When you do read GIDEON, be sure to sit down with a tall, iced drink. GIDEON will have your heart racing with action; intrigue; and wild, monkey sex. Oh, my! HOT, HOT, HOT!!

If you are all set to sit down, relax, have a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy a good book, then again turn to Cherry Adair and her T-FLAC group. Gideon is full of suspense and intrigue with the reader never knowing from one page to the other where you are going. During the journey you will find of romance, some paranormal happenings and some heart wrenching scenes of Gideon trying to find his way "again." Cherry Adair has never disappointed me in her books and she has proven again what "Best Selling Author" means when said behind a name. Well done, Cherry, well done!

It's finally time to find out where Gideon has been! I'm not going to tell you, I'm going to make you read it and find out for yourself. He and Rita try to avoid their attraction, realize that they are going to have to trust each other in order to get out of the jungle alive. Another Cherry Adair T-Flac novel that takes you on a roller coaster ride with Gideon Stark.  Hot hot hot like all of Cherry's books.  This can be read after Hush or all by its lonesome. Another red hot page turner from Cherry!!!

This is the 2nd book in the Lodestone series but is also a stand alone book. It starts out with Riva Rimaldi, who is a T-Flac operative. She is going undercover with the bad guys in Cosio when her helicopter is blown out of the sky. She is captured by members of ANLF. When she sees Sin Diaz, who is the leader of ANLF, she thinks he looks familiar. Sin has amnesia but is beginning to get flashes of his real life. When what he is remembering doesn’t match up with what his mother and friends are telling him, he begins to wonder if he really is who they say he is. There’s a lot of bad guys, shooting and things happening so if you like excitement, you need to read this book. Things are going to happen that you won’t expect. We’ve had to wait a very long time for Gideon’s story but Cherry Adair didn’t let us down. It is a great book!

Once again, Cherry Adair takes us on a fabulous adventure with her latest release, Gideon!  This book is full of edge of your seat action, adventure, and lots of jungle lovin! The long-awaited Gideon picks up where Hush left off, although it IS a stand-alone book and can be read as such. While on an OP to take out Escobar Maza, Riva comes across another famed drug czar, Sin Diaz. Could this person possibly be Gideon Stark, presumed dead while on an adventure in the jungle? Riva aims to find out. What can I say about this installment of Cherry Adair's T-FLAC books that hasn't been said before.... Fun, exciting , edge of your seat action, hot monkey sex, guns, bad guys, good guys, Gideon is a fantastic book that I just couldn't put down!

Another fabulous read from Cherry Adair! It feels like I have been waiting in suspense forever to finally know what happened to Gideon. Cherry does not dissapoint in the 2nd Lodestone book. Action and adventure from page 1. The descriptions in the book made it easy for me to feel like I was right there with Gideon and Riva. This is definitely a book you won't won't to take a break reading from so make sure you have no plans when you start it :)

This is classic Cherry Adair yet, even better! Once I started this book, I didn't want to put it down! This book is about Riva Rimaldi, a T-FLAC operative who crash lands in a small country in South America on her way to take out a drug lord. When she wakes up, she meets a man named Sin Diaz. He is supposedly the kingpin of the rival territory of the man she was sent to kill. This book keeps you wondering from start to finish just who each character really is and what type of person they are. Good or bad? Good question. You can't stop reading because you just HAVE TO KNOW!!! I have to say that the whole book was fascinating, extremely fast-paced and leaving you hanging onto every single page until the last!! DO NOT MISS THIS BOOK!!!!! You won't be sorry you read it. You'll think it's one of the best books you have ever read. I did!

Gideon...where oh where have you been since HUSH??? Well this is book 2 in the Lodestone series. Sin Diaz is the head of a cartel in the jungle. No memories of a past..just the last few months.Riva Rimaldi is on a helicopter headed for a crash into Sin's jungle. Her training as a T-flac operative is all the training she needs until she finds herself attracted..too attracted? to this very attractive man. This is a fast moving adventure from page one until the end! I couldn't put it down. It is hot and heavy and Riva is a powerhouse strong enough to maintain herself with the ever powerful Sin!!!

I just finished the thrill ride that is Gideon. Fast paced and suspenseful, I literally was on the edge of my seat while reading this book. I'm a huge Cherry Adair fan and I was not disappointed. Action, adventure, romance and a great storyline that twists and turns and surprised me several times. I highly recommend this book

Gideon by Cherry Adair Edge-of-your-seat action packed suspense with repetitive running, shooting, killing, and wild moneky sex. A familiar and successful Adair formula. A race through the jungle against the enemy and nature. An emotional roller coaster as well. I loved this book! Action, adventure and strong sexual chemistry. And of course, an HEA.Gideon has lost his memories but not his innate goodness. Riva is a tough and competent TFLAC agent but has an instant sexual reaction to Gideon even though he is introduced as a terrorist. They need to work together to save themselves and the innocents."Gideon lifted their joined hands to kiss her knuckles. the brush of his mouth on her skin felt as though she'd just walked through pure sunshine. Odd. Disconcerting. Annoying that her heart skipped an ecstatic beat for no reason." Excerpt from Adair, Chery. "Gideon".The deetail on the varieties of the trees, plant life, vines, flowers and predators (animals, snakes, spiders, etc) was well researches and used to advantage. At one point in the story, the characters have found a building covered in vines and realize that it's been standing for many years based on the circumference of the vines themselves. I've no interest in traipsing through a jungle, but the descriptions in this book made me feel as if I've safely visited one.I recieved a copy of this book from the author.

I have waited most impatiently for GIDEON'S release! Cherry Adair has clearly outdone herself!! I really know better than starting a book at 11p at night, especially, a new book that I have been waiting on since I put down Hush!! However, I started it, and I just couldn't put it down. I pulled a book all-nighter in the name of Gideon and Reva! This story was the epitome of romance, suspense, hot sex, and touching vulnerability! I was drawn into their story, as surely as if I were right there with them. You don't want to miss this story. We all need to check out sometimes and bury ourselves in someone else's story. There is no place I would rather be than buried nose deep in GIDEON. I was both overjoyed and devastated to read the last word

‘Gideon’ is an intense and thrilling story, with great chemistry between the two leads who are trying to stay one step ahead of killer terrorists in the deadly South American jungles of Cosio. Riva Rimaldi is a T-FLAC agent sent to the area with the mission to kill one of the world’s most dangerous terrorists, Escobar Maza. After her helicopter goes down far from her mission target, she is captured by Maza’s enemy, an equally dangerous and deadly Sin Diaz. Sin is the leader of a rival terrorist group, who plans on using Riva to get a chance to take out Maza. But Sin has greater problems; he can’t remember his past after a violent altercation with Maza. Everyone tells him he is the leader, deadly and evil, but his instincts are far from violent. He is playing a dangerous game, while trying to find answers to his many questions. Riva and Sin find themselves reluctantly attracted to each other, and somehow working together to accomplish a complimentary goals- to stay alive and to take out Escobar Maza. Adair is great at building the attraction between Sin and Riva, and the story moves quickly, never letting up on the tension and entertainment. A really great summer read! I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

An amazing novel by Cherry Adair. Suspense, hotness, and romantic or my! I would recommend this novel to anyone that likes romantic suspense novels. I found it a little hard to get into, but once I did, oh my! Adair's descriptive writing just puts everything into perspective. There are tons of twists and turns which make you think. There are parts of the book that are very descriptive, which is why I would recommend this book to mature adults only. "Gideon" is a book that leaves you wanting more. This novel is packed full of action, sex, love, and thrills. You will not be disappointed when reading this book. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Stark Brothers Book Two Sin Diaz has no memory of his life before five months ago.  He is told that he is the leader of the ANLF and one of the most ruthless cartel leaders in Cosio.  When his men shoot down a helicopter with the lovely Riva Rimaldi on board, he takes her back to the camp intent on interrogating her.  His mother has other ideas, though. Riva is on a mission to take out the head of the SYP, another cartel in Cosio.  Now that she is in the custody of the ANLF, she must find a way to either kill Sin or escape him to continue her mission. If you're looking for a story of amnesia gone wrong and jungle living, this is the book for you!

Gideon is the second book in the Lodestone series and it is fascinating.  The book starts off strong with introducing Riva Rivaldi and then we are introduced to Sin Diaz.  Though I have personally not read the first book in the series, this book can certainly be a stand alone novel. Who says that you can't have a great action book with a great romance?!  The entire build up of the relationship between Riva and Sin keeps you craving to read on and not put the book down.  There are some wonderful twists in the book, some of which I personally would not have been able to predict. After the first few chapters, the reader may be wondering why the title is "Gideon".... keep reading, you will discover the reason behind this clever title.  Riva is a very strong and independent character and never gives up.  Sin is incredibly interesting due to his amnesia.  The adventure that these two happen upon is an adventure that not many would be willing to partake, but they power through.  The end of this book is super fast and highly intense. It will leave you thirsting for more, but the very last sentence will definitely bring about a deep sigh of relief from the reader.  I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a great action packed adventure intertwined with a love story found in a hopeless place. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Cherry Adair's newest T-FLAC novel delivers exactly what you would expect it to; lots of action, adventure and hot sex. I really love the T-FLAC series and enjoyed Gideon. Riva and Gideon are great characters and draw you into the story from the very first page. Between the helicopter crashes, drug lords, steamy jungles and loss of memory, tension abounds. Once you're on this roller coaster of a story you can't stop until the end.

Ok, so I am a die hard Cherry Adair fan and when she left us, more than a year ago, with this sexy mans fate untold I was one of the legion who hounded her endlessly for this story. It was worth every second of the wait. Gideon and Riva are everything that I love about Cherry Adair books. Spunky, sexy and fun. The story keeps you running along with them as they try to discover what has happened to Gideon in the last few months. I highly recommend reading Hush first and if you have not read any of the T-Flac books, grab Ice Cold or Ricochet too get up to speed. This one is for the fans and does not disappoint.

I absolutely LOVED Gideon! It's full of twists & turns, action, suspense & romance. I love the connection that Sin (Gideon) and Graciella (Riva) have. Sin doesn't trust anyone and even questions himself and who he is. Riva is a psychic agent for T-Flac, who's helicopter crashed on her way to complete her mission and was found alive by Sin in the wreckage. He feels compelled to protect her despite the stories of his violent & heartless nature and they end up on the run together.  This book was hard to put down! I stayed up late reading it and payed for it when I had to get up for work in the morning but it was well worth it!
