a Romantic Thriller - Book 2
Ex-special ops legend Dane Blaise is desperate to recruit Shana George to partner with him, but he'd never let her know it.
She's too gorgeous, too smart and too much like him. But there's something indefinable about her that gets to him.
She has impressive skills and if he’s honest, she keeps him in his place. Most of all, Dane wants to keep Shana on the island
because he can't get past his insane longing for her.
With the lure of money and a laid-back lifestyle, Shana quit Scotland Yard to partner with Dane.
Let's face it, she made her choice with her gut--or more accurately her heart--rather than her brains. She and Dane may be good partners in crime-fighting, but they are all wrong for each other in every other way..
He's soulless and lost and likely has more emotional wounds from his past than the bullet and knife scars scorching his body can show.
But she's crazy. About him.
Headquartered in Dane's beach shack, Beachcomber Investigations specializes in impossible odds and last ditch efforts.
Their first assignment is to protect Dane's old special ops buddy, Acer from a sniper. They need to find whoever paid the sniper before he takes another shot and doesn't miss.
Dane and Shana need to be on top of their game to keep Acer alive, and not on top of each other.
But each of them is secretly worried whether it's possible to ignore their attraction-distraction,. And worried about what will happen if it’s not.

Beachcomber Investigation series
Staying in shape was getting to be an ordeal—or so Dane’s right knee periodically reminded him. He looked ahead down the pristine length of State Beach, thought briefly about Jaws, and kept running. He had one and a half miles to go. Then he’d run the two miles back. It was May. Warm weather. No tourists yet clogging up the beach.
The mobile phone in the pocket of his cargo shorts vibrated against his right thigh. He didn’t stop running, but slowed enough to slip it out as it stopped buzzing and went to voice mail. He glanced at the caller ID.
He stopped short in the sand.
It wasn’t Shana. He recognized the number. A cold freeze went through him—the kind that slowed his heartbeat to calm him, the kind that demanded he slow the alarmed thoughts bursting in his head.
It was Oscar.
Or someone using Oscar’s phone. He remembered his old friend from his mercenary days. The only person outside his special ops team who’d saved his skin and who he trusted. He owed Oscar. And he’d been truly fond of the man. He clamped down on the surging adrenaline. Whoever called him on this line, Oscar or not, would know it was a call to action.
Beachcomber Investigations Series
Excerpt from Beachcomber Heat:
Dane watched Shana reach back with both hands and lift the heavy mane of hair off her neck, arching her breasts forward, exposing the glistening pale column of her throat. Her head was thrown back, supported by her long bare arms gleaming with a film of perspiration. He stared and held himself as still as a mountain—with an effort. He wished they were anywhere else on the planet besides Captain Colin Lynch’s office at State Police Headquarters on Martha’s Vineyard.
Cap—the name his inner circle gave him—cleared his throat. Dane turned to him.
“Get on with it—what’d you call us in for—an overdue parking ticket?” Dane said.
Cap raised a brow and said, “No, but I’ll be looking into that.” Cap shifted his gaze to Shana. Dane held his jealousy muscles in check.
Beachcomber Wedding – Book 5
While Dane and Shana are hired to protect a bride from a Russian arms dealer, will the idea of wedding bells inspire romance between the private-eye partners? Or will the notion of love and marriage scare them more than the threat of a bomb at the church?
