"Unexpected and intense from the get-go. With irresistible characters, a rare setting and an inventive, high-powered plot, it's a smartly crafted gem of a story." - USA Today


While working on the Horn of Africa, archaeologist Morgan Adler's work and life are threatened, forcing her to make a desperate dash to a nearby US military base to beg for protection. Green Beret Pax Blanchard has orders to intercept Dr. Adler before she reaches the base, and in so doing saves her life, but his responsibilities toward protecting the woman have only just begun.


Morgan and Pax are forced to work together in the scorching desert heat, but it is the fire that ignites between them that threatens to consume them both. He protects her by day, but can he keep his hands off her when the sun goes down? One thing is certain, his job is no longer a matter of following orders, and he will risk everything to keep her safe.

When a food storage depot in famine-struck South Sudan is torched, American aid worker Brie Stewart flees, only to land in a market where she’s the next item up for auction. Is the attack on the aid facility another assault upon the war-torn fledgling democracy, or has her family set her up as a pawn in their quest for oil rights?

Chief Warrant Officer Sebastian Ford crossed paths with Brie years ago when she was a shill for her family’s company, pushing a pipeline that threatened his tribe’s land. Determined to lead the rescue operation to save her, he won’t let her abduction—or the attraction that flares between them—get in the way of settling their unfinished business.

The Green Beret’s skills are put to the test in the flooded grasslands of South Sudan, where they must battle nature and dangerous factions who are after more than oil. Bastian and Brie put their hearts on the line as they find themselves embroiled in a conflict that extends beyond country and continent. Together they must douse the spark before it reaches the flashpoint and engulfs everything they hold dear.

"A scorching-hot read with the added bonus of grit, substance and integrity. A great Romantic Thriller!" - New York Timesbestselling author Toni Anderson


CIA covert operator Savannah James is after intel on a potential coup in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, but she needs a partner to infiltrate the organization. Sergeant First Class Cassius Callahan is the perfect choice, except he doesn’t like or trust her, despite the sparks that flare between them. Still, he accepts the assignment, knowing Savannah will pose as his mistress.


They enter battle-worn Congo to expose the financing for the coup. Betrayal stalks them as they follow the money deep into the heart of a jungle where cobalt, gold, and diamonds fund treason. Savannah will stop at nothing to bring down the would-be dictator before he can ignite a firestorm that will engulf all of Africa.


Deep in the sultry rainforest, spy and Green Beret forge a relationship more precious than diamonds, but Cal knows Savannah is willing to sacrifice anything—or anyone—to complete her mission.

“Grant blows it out of the park with INFERNO, an action adventure extravaganza masquerading as a novella.” – New York Times bestselling author Toni Anderson


US Embassy Officer Kaylea Halpert needs a date for a black tie event at a dangerous foreign national’s lavish home. Preferably someone with brains and brawn who can watch her back. Special Forces Sergeant Carlos Espinosa is more than happy to escort the beautiful, brilliant diplomat—who just might be a CIA case officer—to the party. Their night together only gets hotter when he discovers Kaylea burns for him too.


Date night in Djibouti turns deadly when foreign agents target the couple. But who is the intended victim, the covert operator or the Green Beret? As Carlos and Kaylea use their combined skills to escape their captors, they uncover treachery that could ignite relations between the US and Djibouti—already at a flashpoint—and trigger an inferno.

Archaeology, politics, and war collide in 3 steamy thrillers.

Evidence Series Box Set Volume 1 includes two full-length (300 page) novels and one short (150-page) novel.

 

Concrete Evidence 

 

She wants revenge. He wants her.

Erica Kesling is trying to track down stolen artifacts so she can clear her name. Lee Scott is searching for the stateside conspirator in an international artifact smuggling ring. She’s hiding her past, while he hides his present. He pretends to be a clueless intern when really he's a genius hacker who is slowly uncovering all of her secrets, and with each reveal he finds himself falling harder for his prime suspect.

 

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, a powerful and ambitious US attorney who has his own reasons for wanting Mara back on US soil.

 

What starts off as a rescue mission morphs into a race across the Pacific. Someone is after Mara, and they’ll risk everything to stop her from reaching Washington, DC. Curt and Mara have little reason to trust each other and every reason to resist the heat that flares between them. Still, desire clashes with loyalty when they uncover a conspiracy that reaches the highest levels of government.

 

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.
