The truth has never been this dangerous…or this exciting
Fifteen years ago, John Kimberley walked out of his partner’s office and never looked back. He didn’t want to. It was easier to believe that he was heading for a stellar career and a future unburdened by huge student loans. The career proved to be rich and rewarding. His financial health—likewise. There was that other nagging consideration that surfaced now and then; a nasty little voice that kept whispering that he sacrificed the love-of-his-life for prestige and money. But he knew how to ignore it.
Then a sinkhole opened up in Arizona, swallowing a refinery, one of his employer’s subsidiaries. A significant loss. Certainly, worthy of further scrutiny. For a change, he needs to do field work in a research library where he discovers a list of natural disasters that spans decades. The one thing these natural phenomena have in common, is that they had all targeted his employer’s holdings. A joint venture here, a subsidiary there. His corporate employer sure seems to be the type of business that is every insurer’s nightmare.
Until John finds a pattern and a thread that begs to be pulled. A man who had no business being in Arizona, was caught on the security cameras, and appeared to be casing the refinery. The next step would be to find out what the man had to say for himself. Except he’s off on a field assignment—and heading for Alaska and so is a research team of scientists, aiming to hold field trials of a new product. The project leader is someone who has not been part of John’s life for the last fifteen years. He swore to never speak her name again. But a few days later, when a new tragedy claims many lives, including the man John had hoped to find, he knows that old wounds will have to remain hidden even as new ones open up. And suddenly, he is faced with so many choices, pulled in so many directions that running away is not an option. At least not this time. He knows that there is something terribly wrong with the island…he just doesn’t know how terribly wrong it is to try and find out.

When the world doesn’t have a clue about their whereabouts, Claire finds herself stranded on an isolated island somewhere in the Pacific Ocean with eleven other survivors. One of whom is Jonathan Lee, the sexy captain who has miraculously survived.
When one of the survivors suddenly passed away from a seemingly unnatural cause, people begin to suspect one another of foul play. Was it murder? Was it an accident?
Blame and distrust are in the air. Desperate for answers, Claire is determined to find the culprit as she doesn’t want to become the next victim.

Cheyenne Carson’s life is in a slump. After turning down a marriage proposal, she moves home to the family farm. The aspiring pastry chef is feeling discouraged over her floundering love life and nonexistent career when her brother makes her an offer she can’t refuse. A job that includes a six-week, all expense paid trip across Canada in an RV. And ten thousand dollars.
Abraham McLean just graduated from college with a degree in marketing. The confirmed bachelor is looking forward to his first job. What could be better than getting paid ten grand to travel across Canada in a luxury RV with your best friend?
This is not how my life was supposed to go. But here I am. Back on my family’s farm, milking cows and shoveling manure. I should be in a fancy kitchen somewhere, baking five tier cakes and perfect soufflés while daydreaming about all the orgasms my husband gives me every night. But I’m not married. And I’m sexually frustrated. There’s only one man that gets my juices flowing. My brother’s best friend. I haven’t seen Abe in seven years, but I still fantasize about him. I never expected to see him again. And now I’m alone with him, on a road trip across Canada.
Life was good. I had everything I thought I needed to be happy. A college degree, a job offer in New York, a trust fund, and a different woman in my bed every night. I only answered to myself.
Now, I’m in over my head. I was really looking forward to this trip. Six weeks in a luxury RV with my best friend, driving across Canada. One week in, and my buddy and his girlfriend had to bail. I promised I’d take care of his little sister. And I did. Last night. We agreed to a no strings, casual arrangement. I don’t do relationships. There’s only one problem. I’m falling for her.
