Published by: Janus Publishing
Publication date: 28th December 2018
Genres: Romance, Suspense
Two things haunt forensic anthropologist Hazel MacLeod: the bones of victims of genocide she examines for her work, and former SEAL Sean Logan’s rejection. But within days of moving to her cousin’s estate to take a much needed break, she finds herself faced with both.
First, she’s called in to examine a mass grave in Virginia, then, her politician cousin receives a threatening letter and insists Hazel needs around the clock protection—from none other than Sean Logan. To make matters worse, because the threat to her is classified, Hazel and Sean must pretend to be lovers to hide that he’s her bodyguard.
Sean has spent years trying to avoid his boss’s sexy cousin, but now he’s guarding her twenty-four/seven and even bringing her as his date to a romantic destination wedding. As the heat between them intensifies, Sean can’t lose sight of the danger that brought them together. But when bullets start flying, new questions arise. Are the senator’s political rivals really behind the threat, or is someone trying to silence Hazel from speaking for the dead?
Ask yourself a question – what do you look for in a romantic suspense story? If it is strong, character driven plot lines, with off the charts chemistry, palpable tension and exceptional storytelling, then look no further.
And don’t forget the chocolate martinis.
This is another wonderfully immersive tale from Rachel Grant. Each book, set within the same group, is completely different (with the exception of the strong lead characters). I don’t know how she keeps producing these great stories, but I, for one, will keep reading them.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
