After burying herself in work to keep from pining for the sexy Mister Black, Talia takes a much-needed vacation. When her holiday turns deadly, she'll have to use all her investigative skills to discover the killer before she's his next victim. If only she had someone like Mister Black to back her up... 

Mister Black swept in and out of my life like a tornado, leaving me twisted up and forever changed in his wake.

And now that my life is finally back on track, I need to move on, despite the many reminders of our time together.

But our pasts are only as far away as the shadows we hide behind, and sometimes those shadows grow darker, converging on the present in the most insidious way.

He is Black: a stealthy hunter and rainbow master.

I am Red: a truth seeker and desire keeper.

Together we are obsession. Passionate colors destined to be drawn together.

A stand alone novel in the best selling IN THE SHADOWS series


A photographer with a dark past. A former SEAL without a family. He'll do whatever it takes to protect the woman he loves.


Calder Blake lost everything: his mother, his father, his very identity. Until Cass, he didn’t believe he deserved to be a Blake, where family and loyalty always come first.


But what if Cass can’t give Calder what he needs to move on from his broken past?


Or worse, what if someone’s determined that Cass will never get a chance to become a Blake?


DEAR READERS: BLOOD ROSE will be a stand alone story, but if you haven’t read how Cass and Calder’s love story first started, you can do so through GOLD SHIMMER and STEEL RUSH. Not only do you get to take the journey with Cass and Calder, but you’ll also get to visit with Sebastian and Talia, since they play key roles in Cass and Calder’s story. :)

Passion, betrayal, and heartache collide in an emotionally charged and dangerous chain of events that could unravel everything Sebastian and Talia have worked to overcome.

While looking forward to a bright future with the upcoming birth of their child, and navigating the often humorous and overbearingly protective aspects of approaching parenthood, Mister Black and Little Red manage to strengthen their passionate connection.

But connections can be severed in the most insidious ways, and the power couple must learn to trust each other’s instincts if they hope to uncover the threat determined to destroy their family.

Author’s Note: REDDEST BLACK can be read as a standalone story, but for the richest reading experience you can always start with the first book, MISTER BLACK, to see how Sebastian and Talia’s epic love story began.

Dennet Barasa. British. Former MI6. Bodyguard for BLACK Security. Controlled and cool under pressure, he's about to meet his match in a petite heiress, who will be his toughest assignment yet.


When I lost everything I ever cared about, guarding the Blake family became my life. I’ve spent years protecting the wealthy family like they were my own.


Until I was assigned Mina Blake.


Beautiful and intelligent, she’s infuriatingly stubborn as she challenges me. She’s also a delightful storm, tearing up the roadblocks around my heart faster than I can rebuild them.


But someone is after Mina, and as the danger closes in from all sides, I’m finding it harder to separate my head from my heart.


She is everything I thought I would never have in my life. And I will do whatever it takes to keep her forever.

We all have someone who crossed our path and fundamentally changed us. That one person who blew through our lives, their presence forever stamped on our psyche. They linger in our thoughts, in our hearts, and in the decisions we make. A soul crusher or a dream maker, depending on the perspective.


My person is Mister Black.


I didn't know him by that name when I first met him.

I didn't know him at all, but the impression he left behind was just as powerful as the name I call him today.


He is Black: a deadly enforcer and masterful seducer.


I am Red: a justice bleeder and willing participant.

When our secrets converge in a passionate encounter, stepping out of the shadows just might be worth the risk.

What happens when you're instantly drawn and inexplicably attracted to a man you haven't really met? 
 Me?  Well, I left a party like my butt was on fire when it happened to me. Arrogant, wealthy and physically perfect men were nothing but trouble, even if I was mesmerized by a man with all of those attributes.     
Unfortunately, we met again--in person this time-- when I literally collided with Carter Lawson in the flesh several days later, and discovered he was  a man I just couldn't stay away from, no matter how much I tried.  He felt the same attraction, and was determined to make it impossible for me not to see him.   
My body craved him, and as I got to know the real man behind the jaded billionaire, womanizer facade, I was surprised to discover that I actually liked him.  
He's the quintessential alpha male that I normally hate, but there's something I see in him that nobody else does, a pain I recognize in his glacier-like eyes--because I'm just like him. Both of us are frauds 
I want to crack him like an egg, and see what's inside, but there's no way I want him to do the same thing to me.   
On the surface, I'm a successful supermodel with a great career.  
Inside, I'm someone else, a woman that nobody sees--until Carter slowly breaks through my defensive walls as well as he satisfies my body,  starting to open wounds that have never really  healed.   
But there's only so much I can let Carter see.  Revealing everything could ruin my entire life and the career I'd worked so hard to build.  
So why was it so hard to lie to Carter like I'd been doing with everyone else my entire life?  

The first time it happened, it seemed like an impossible miracle. Bills were piling up, adding up to more money than I could ever make. Mom's hospital bills. My baby brother's tuition. My tuition. Rent. Electricity. All of it on my shoulders. And I had just lost my job. There was no hope, no money in my account, no work to be found. And then, just when I thought all hope was lost, I found an envelope in the mail. No return address. My name on the front, my address. Inside was a check, made out to me, in the amount of ten thousand dollars. Enough to pay the bills and leave me some left over to live on until I found a job. Enough to let me focus on classes. There was no name on the check, just "VRI Inc.," and a post office box address for somewhere in the city. No hint of identity or reason for the check or anything. No mention of repayment, interest, nothing... except a single word, on the notes line: "You." Just those three letters.

If you receive a mysterious check, for enough money to erase all your worries, would you cash it?

I did.

The next month, I received another check, again from VRI Incorporated. It too contained a single word: "belong."

A third check, the next month. This time, two words. Four letters. "To me."

The checks kept coming. The notes stopped. Ten thousand dollars, every month. A girl gets used to that, real quick. It let me pay the bills without going into debt. Let me keep my baby brother in school and Mom's hospice care paid for. How do you turn down what seems like free money, when you're desperate? You don't. I didn't.

And then, after a year, there was a knock on my door. A sleek black limousine sat on the curb in front of my house. A driver stood in front of me, and he spoke six words: "It's time to pay your debt."

Would you have gotten in?

I did.

It turns out $120,000 doesn't come free.
Passion, betrayal, and heartache collide in an emotionally charged and dangerous chain of events that could unravel everything Sebastian and Talia have worked to overcome.

While looking forward to a bright future with the upcoming birth of their child, and navigating the often humorous and overbearingly protective aspects of approaching parenthood, Mister Black and Little Red manage to strengthen their passionate connection.

But connections can be severed in the most insidious ways, and the power couple must learn to trust each other’s instincts if they hope to uncover the threat determined to destroy their family.

Author’s Note: REDDEST BLACK can be read as a standalone story, but for the richest reading experience you can always start with the first book, MISTER BLACK, to see how Sebastian and Talia’s epic love story began.

New York Times, USA Today, and international bestselling set...

From the Hamptons to Martha’s Vineyard to Manhattan, Talia and Sebastian embark on an intense love affair that forces them to deal with their pasts as they face down old and current enemies. 

Falling in love has never been more tempestuous and dangerous, but ultimately…also deeply satisfying.

The IN THE SHADOWS: A Billionaire SEAL Story first three books are all together in this box set! This is an 800 print page bundle that features books 1-3, Sebastian and Talia's story: MISTER BLACK, SCARLETT RED, and BLACKEST RED.


MISTER BLACK, Book One: 

We all have someone who crossed our path and fundamentally changed us. That one person who blew through our lives, their presence forever stamped on our psyche. They linger in our thoughts, in our hearts, and in the decisions we make. A soul crusher or a dream maker, depending on the perspective.

 My person is Mister Black.

I didn't know him by that name when I first met him.

I didn't know him at all, but the impression he left behind was just as powerful as the name I call him today.

He is Black: a deadly enforcer and masterful seducer.

I am Red: a justice bleeder and willing participant.

Together we are passion. Colors colliding through each other's lives.

When our secrets converge in a passionate encounter, stepping out of the shadows just might be worth the risk.


SCARLETT RED Book Two:

Mister Black swept in and out of my life like a tornado, leaving me twisted up and forever changed in his wake.

And now that my life is finally back on track, I need to move on, despite the many reminders of our time together.

But our pasts are only as far away as the shadows we hide behind, and sometimes those shadows grow darker, converging on the present in the most insidious way.

He is Black: a stealthy hunter and rainbow master.

I am Red: a truth seeker and desire keeper.

Together we are obsession. Passionate colors destined to be drawn together.


BLACKEST RED Book Three: 

No matter how hard I've tried to let go of Mister Black, the memories of us together torture me. They're an unforgettable reminder of a life I can't have for many reasons.

Burying myself in work mostly keeps thoughts of him to a screaming minimum, until he's thrust into my life under circumstances beyond my control. Despite my need for his protection, this time I'm not sure if I'm strong enough to survive with my heart intact.

He is Black: a fierce protector and irresistible charmer.

I am Red: a trouble magnet and rainbow weaver.

Together we ignite. Explosive colors merging at the hottest melting point.

A stand alone novel in the best selling IN THE SHADOWS series


A photographer with a dark past. A former SEAL without a family. He'll do whatever it takes to protect the woman he loves.


Calder Blake lost everything: his mother, his father, his very identity. Until Cass, he didn’t believe he deserved to be a Blake, where family and loyalty always come first.


But what if Cass can’t give Calder what he needs to move on from his broken past?


Or worse, what if someone’s determined that Cass will never get a chance to become a Blake?


DEAR READERS: BLOOD ROSE will be a stand alone story, but if you haven’t read how Cass and Calder’s love story first started, you can do so through GOLD SHIMMER and STEEL RUSH. Not only do you get to take the journey with Cass and Calder, but you’ll also get to visit with Sebastian and Talia, since they play key roles in Cass and Calder’s story. :)
