CORE agent Lola Tam has two things on her mind, quitting her job as a criminal investigator and baking a frozen pie for Thanksgiving dinner without burning it. But a midnight call forces a change of plans. Her boss and future stepfather, Ian Scott, has been kidnapped from his Florida vacation rental—along with her mother. The kidnapper’s plan?

Book 3
Welcome to Hell
Week. You have seven days to find him…


At Wexman University, male students will do anything to
get into a top fraternity. They’ll prove their worth during Hell Week by
participating in various physical, psychological and even juvenile pranks. But
those shenanigans aren’t so funny when pledges start disappearing. What kind of
evil has stalked this small Michigan university for the past two decades?
Theories range from obscene scientific experiments to grotesque satanic
killings…but they’re all wrong. The murdered boys serve a single purpose…the ultimate
revenge.



Rachel Davis,
forensic computer analyst for the private investigation agency CORE, has been
itching to leave her desk behind and work in the field. When her brother Sean,
a student at Wexman, is found beaten and his roommate kidnapped during Hell
Week, she gets her chance. Only her boss insists former U.S. Secret Service
Agent, Owen Malcolm, helps her with the investigation. Owen is the last person
she wants on this assignment. She’d been secretly half in love with him for
over four years, until the night he’d crushed her ego and destroyed her hopes
for any kind of future with him.



For his own reasons,
Owen refuses to risk becoming involved with a coworker. Now that he and Rachel
are stuck working side-by-side to solve this perverse investigation, he’s

having a hard time fighting his attraction to
her…an attraction he’s tried to deny from the moment they met. But time is
ticking. They have seven days to find the missing pledge and catch a killer.
Seven days before the body count rises and the pledge ends up another victim of
Hell Week.

When a deranged mother's grief drives her to replace her dead son over and over, obsession leads to murder...

Chicago detective Jessica Donavan will never stop looking for her missing daughter. Her obsession has destroyed her marriage, but the search is the only thing that helps keep her sane and her mind off of everything she’s lost—her husband and her baby girl. When she uncovers a string of unsolved disappearances and reappearances of a number of baby boys, Jessica turns to her soon to be ex, Dante Russo, a former Navy SEAL turned investigator for the private agency, CORE, to help her fit together the pieces in this perplexing puzzle. But as Dante helps her, she realizes just how much she still craves his support—and his touch.

Dante is still in love with his wife and would do anything to have her back in his life again. He’s been miserable since she left him to deal with the grief over their daughter’s abduction, never understanding how much he grieves as well. When Jessica tells him about the case she’s working, he jumps at the chance to take part in her investigation. He's hoping not only to save their marriage and ease his personal pain over the loss of their daughter, but to stop a serial kidnapper from taking another victim.

As Jessica and Dante work side by side, pregnant women begin to turn up missing or dead, and they start to uncover the consequences of another woman's unfathomable grief. The childless mother doesn’t just want a baby. She wants a newborn straight from the womb. 

And when forced to confront the dark and twisted perversion of a mother's obsession, can Jessica and Dante find their lives again…or merely more death?
