DANGEROUS GROUND is Available Now!

Fiona Carver #1

In the remote and unpredictable Aleutians, danger comes without warning in an adrenaline rush of a novel by USA Today bestselling author Rachel Grant.

Archaeologist Fiona Carver has unfinished business in the Aleutian Islands. After an emergency evacuation cut her first expedition short, she’s finally back. But time is not on her side as she races to finish documenting the remnants of a prehistoric village, recover missing artifacts, and track down missing volcanologist Dylan Slater.

Having bluffed his way onto Fiona’s team with fake credentials, wildlife photographer Dean Slater is willing to risk more than federal prison to find his missing brother, but he needs Fiona’s help. She knows the inhospitable terrain better than anyone.

When the two set out together on a perilous journey, it becomes more than a recovery mission. In their fight for survival, nature isn’t the only threat. They aren’t the only ones on the hunt. Mile by dangerous mile, someone is hunting them.

Ready for the next Fiona Carver? PreOrder Today!

For archaeologist Fiona Carver, the Caribbean glistens with untold menace in a heart-racing novel by Rachel Grant, USA Today bestselling author of Dangerous Ground.

Fiona Carver has landed a dream assignment: conducting an archaeological inventory of Ruby Island, a privately owned, pristine gem in the Caribbean. Two months in paradise exploring and mapping a lush rain forest, vast caves, and a seventeenth-century star fort and following up on legends of hidden Spanish gold. Add a simmering reunion with wildlife photographer Dean Slater and it’s enough to take Fiona’s breath away. But the sparkle fades when Dean’s arrival is met with sudden, terrifying danger.

Reunited and determined to see the project through, Fiona and Dean find themselves in a swirl of intrigue as they delve into the complex history of the unspoiled refuge, now a tropical haven for billionaires and their secrets. But the work isn’t easy, as someone appears determined to kill the project—by any means necessary.

As betrayal casts tropical storm clouds over Ruby Island and treasured friendships dissolve into distrust, one thing becomes clear: Fiona and Dean are trapped in a dangerous paradise.


A New Release from Louise Dawn

Louise Dawn has a new release and it looks amazing! STRIKING BLOW is book 2 of her Strike Zone Series.

As a teenager, Pearl escaped her small Colorado town for a glamorous career as a model. Now, a decade later, she’s a divorced single mother, with a target on her back. Hiding from her ex-husband—a war criminal—will take all of her efforts. But, she’s not alone—her tiny daughter is not alone. A hardened diplomatic agent steps in to help and Pearl finds comfort in his sheltering protection.

DSS Agent, Antonio Torres, doesn’t do sentimental, sweet, or angelic. His brutal past and militaristic lifestyle leave little room for tenderness. When a friend asks for a favor, escorting the terrified woman and her child to the States, Antonio cannot refuse. Despite their heated attraction, getting involved with the pretty socialite and her tangled past is not an option. After escorting Pearl Bandara to the US, he’ll walk away. Job done and favor repaid. So why does he feel like he’s throwing her to the wolves.

As their world turns upside down, Pearl and Antonio struggle with their heated desires. And a mercenary army in pursuit forces them to flee. The odds are stacked against them, and the capable agent will give up his life to save both mother and child. Will they survive the hunt?
