Three classic stories of romantic suspense from New York Times bestselling author Brenda Novak…
Nate Ferrentino, who works for private security contractor Department 6, has been assigned to infiltrate a dangerous cult that has recently taken over the desert ghost town of Paradise, Arizona. It’s a challenge he welcomes—until he learns that colleague Rachel Jessop will be going undercover with him. Thanks to their shared history, he’d much rather go alone….
The problem is, only married couples can participate in cult rituals. So Rachel and Nate must pretend to be husband and wife. There’s no choice. Because people are disappearing…and if they don’t stop the cult, Rachel might be one of them.
Twelve people have been shot at point-blank range and left to rot in the desert sun. It’s Bordertown, Arizona’s new chief of police Sophia St. Claire’s job to do something about it. Help arrives in the form of Department 6 hired gun Roderick Guerrero. As far as Sophia’s concerned, his involvement only makes things worse. He has a history he can’t get past. A history that includes her.
Rod refuses to leave town until the killer is caught. He’s not worried about the danger posed by some vigilante. It’s Sophia who threatens him. Because he’s used to risking his life—but his heart is another story.
The bodies of seven women have been discovered in Skull Valley, Arizona. Jonah Young, a private security operative from Department 6, has been hired to assist in solving these murders. But Jonah’s not prepared for the complications that arise when he’s forced to work with a woman from his past, private investigator Francesca Moretti.
Jonah betrayed Francesca ten years ago. She hasn’t forgiven him and she’s pretty sure she never will. But she has to work with him, because if they bet on the wrong suspect, it might be the last thing they ever do….
