Retrieval, Inc. Series—Book 1!

While tracing his missing teenage sister, Detective Mitch Saunders uncovers a disturbing link to one of his old, and very cold, cases: Laura Macnamara, a young woman who walked out her backdoor and simply disappeared. Runaway, or victim? He never knew, but is about to find out. Because Laura—a sexy, grown woman now known as Charlie Hart—holds the key to his sister’s safety. 

Except Charlie refuses to help him. Between her carefully guarded secrets and well-founded fears, too much is at stake to look back. Nor can she consider a future with Mitch—a man who will expose her to evil, if that’s what it takes to bring his sister home. He leaves Charlie no choice but to run—again. Or is it already too late?

Unlikely Series—Book 1!

Tori Radnor’s future is looking brighter after scoring a big break with her start-up venture. Mega-successful Aiden Miller has agreed to help. Although her job isn’t the only thing drawing Tori to her new partner, she is determined to keep it strictly business. She owes that to her teenager, after letting her almost-ex nearly destroy them. When she and her son become an elusive villain’s target, her carefully constructed plans begin to unravel. Is Aiden somehow involved—or is he the safest bet?

Aiden is facing a cross-roads personally and professionally when the police discover his Poconos store is part of a well-established drug ring. Alluring Tori and her employees are not complications he needs. Inexplicably, as his desire for the kind-hearted social worker increases, so does the danger—leaving protective Aiden between a rock and a hard place.

As the villain’s taunts escalate into terrifying attacks, Tori and Aiden must confront their worst fears—before it all becomes Unhinged.
