Book Summary:

The Civil War brought death and ruin to the Old South, but out of the ashes there arose a remarkable legend that has intrigued treasure hunters and conspiracy buffs ever since - the "lost Confederate gold," said to have been buried somewhere in the swampy flatlands of Georgia following the fall of the Confederate government in 1865. Now an out-of-work former dot-com executive has his hands on a set of old clues that might lead him to the fabled treasure - if only he can stay alive long enough to find it. When Matt Rutherford's Silicon Valley dot-com firm goes belly-up, the displaced executive has nowhere else to go but home - home to Walkerville, Georgia, where, following the brutal death of his first cousin, he's been named sole heir to his elderly aunt's estate. While searching to clear his name as a suspect for his cousin's death, Matt uncovers a long-hidden family secret: he's descended from the same Southern officer assigned to guard the gold reserves following the fall of the Confederate capital in the waning days of the Civil War. Even more astonishing, he finds an old diary that reveals, through complex coded instructions, where the gold is buried. Problem is, others know about the gold - and the old diary. They will stop at nothing to claim the treasure for themselves, even if it means murder. Enlisting the help of Lisa Li, a beautiful Chinese-American computer expert, Matt sets out to unravel the mysterious clues - clues that eventually lead him to a top-secret nuclear weapons installation in South Carolina where he must evade a bloodthirsty killer as well as heavily-armed government agents before learning the horrifying truth behind the lost Confederate gold.

Book Summary:

Two strong heroines, two unlikely romances, and nonstop suspense make for two great novels! In Lethal Deception, Rose DeAngelo knows that insuring high-level shipments is a risky business, but when hijackers start lifting loads and injuring drivers and the string of thefts seems squarely targeted at her clients, she starts to feel the heat. Especially when all the signs point to her as the primary suspect. To investigator Mike Ramsey, it looks like a clear-cut case of an inside job. As the two are thrown together to find out who’s behind the dangerous crimes, each harboring doubts about the other, their suspicions mount even as an undeniable passion grows between them. But what neither of them realizes is that the hijackers are closing in, and Rose and Ramsey will be forced to trust each other and join forces or risk losing everything, including each other. In Lethal Obsession, Kat Malone has always been a tough and focused undercover agent, and over the years she’s made a lot of enemies. Now one of them is back and stalking her viciously, bent on revenge. Proper and prudish Seamus O’Rourke has spent his life cleaning up the messes of his twin brother, Riley, and it turns out one of those messes is Kat Malone. Reluctant to help her but shocked by the depravity of her sadistic stalker, Seamus takes on the role of Kat’s protector. Forced into hiding following a deadly attack, tensions mount and passions flare as Kat is faced with the stunning depth of her stalker’s madness and Seamus must find the strength and determination to protect the woman he’s grown to love. “Lethal Obsession . . . had me on the edge of my seat.” —Lori F.
