AGAINST THE SKY Nick Brodie and Samantha Hollis’ fish out of water story. Nick Brodie, an ex-Anchorage cop, is tough as nails, a true man’s man, comfortable in the hard life in Alaska. But Samantha Hollis, owner of a pet grooming parlor in San Francisco likes shopping at Sak’s and a day at the spa. Unwillingly swept into Nick’s problems, Samantha finds herself on a wild ride that leads them in to passion and terrible danger.
It was fun finding ways to make their relationship work when they seem so very far apart. This one’s very fast paced, but it has a soft heart. It turned out to be one of my favorites.
AGAINST THE WILD is Dylan Brodie and Lane Bishop’s story. Dylan is the new owner of an old fishing lodge in remote Eagle Bay, Alaska, a place he intends to rebuild as a home for himself and his eight-year old daughter. Unfortunately, the crew working on the lodge are beginning to believe the old place is haunted. So does the sexy, redheaded interior designer, Lane Bishop, that Dylan has hired to help him with the extensive remodel.
But is the haunting real? Or is it something even more sinister?
When Lane and Dylan work to solve the mystery, they discover a legacy of injustice and murder. With danger stalking their every move, Dylan must risk everything to save Lane and his daughter and uncover the truth–before it’s too late.
AGAINST THE MARK is Tyler Brodie and Haley Warren’s story. Ty first appeared in AGAINST THE NIGHT, working with Johnnie Riggs. He also made an appearance in AGAINST THE EDGE with Ben Slocum. In AGAINST THE MARK, Ty, a private investigator, meets Haley Warren, a sexy blonde from Chicago who hires him to help her uncover the truth about her father’s death.
Was the explosion that killed James Warren an accident? Or was it murder, as Haley’s stepmother believes?
Fighting a fierce attraction neither of them wants to feel, they follow a trail of clues that leads them into the art world, where old master paintings sell for tens of millions of dollars–plenty of motive for murder.
AGAINST THE EDGE is Ben Slocum and Claire Chastain’s story. That he’s a father is news Ben was not expecting. But once the initial shock wears off for the confirmed bachelor, he takes in the rest of what social worker Claire Chastain tells him: that Sam is in the custody of an abusive criminal, that they’ve disappeared . . . and that Ben is now the child’s only hope.
As Ben and Claire band together to track the two down, their concern for the boy draws them closer, each fighting feelings there’s no time to explore. Ben’s got one chance to take back what’s his, and in one gunshot he could lose it all . . .
AGAINST THE SUN is big Jake Cantrell and Sage Dumont’s story. A book that deals with a visit to Texas by a Saudi Arabian sheik and his family. The sheik is there to negotiate a three hundred million dollar oil-well equipment sale.
Jake is hired to act as Sage’s bodyguard and teach her the protocols she will need to know in order to make the deal. Customs like not showing the bottom of her foot, which is considered an insult, or making the okay sign, which is giving someone the evil eye.
Because of the research involved in getting the customs, clothing, and attitudes of the Saudi visitors correct, AGAINST THE SUN was one of the most difficult books I’ve ever tackled. I’m proud of the way it turned out.
Don’t you want to read them all?
