If she goes it alone, she’s as good as dead.
Jessie Haynes has never relied on anyone. So, when she’s targeted by a ruthless killer, accepting the help of a persistent private investigator may be the smart choice, but it isn’t easy. Reeve may be hot as hell, but she has no intention of letting him call all the shots and invade every corner of her privacy. It’s bad enough that unless they can stop the madman who is stalking her every step, she may have no choice but to reveal the painful secret that has kept her alone for years. Jessie knows her sexy new bodyguard will do everything he can to keep her alive, but he may be powerless to stop her past from destroying her future.
He can’t let another woman die.
Determined to make up for a mission gone lethally wrong, former Navy SEAL turned P.I. Reeve Buchanan is hot on the trail of the cunning murderer who got away. He’s got no time to waste catering to the exacting demands of the luscious red-head who’s reluctantly tolerating his protection. Especially when he’s sure she’s not telling him all there is to know. But as he finds himself falling for Jessie, his need for revenge takes a backseat. With the killer closing in, Reeve must find a way to gain her trust before she becomes the next victim. Because if he loses her, it will kill him too.

A house fire leaves one man dead and a million-dollar painting destroyed. Before paying out, the insurance company enlists art claims specialist Samantha Caine to search for signs of fraud. All she needs are her skills and an expert to authenticate the painting’s charred remains.
Art Conservator Dr. Antonio Ferraro is immediately drawn to Samantha, but her sharp tongue and plans to never date again pose a challenge. As does the burned painting, which is little more than strips of blackened canvas. Not a man to back down, he’s confident he can uncover the proof she needs and win her over in the process.
As pressure to close the claim mounts, so do the lies. Everything is more complicated than it seems, and Antonio’s keeping secrets of his own. When Samantha discovers the truth, will their chance at romance go up in smoke?
Secrets, murder, and slow-burning passions ignite in this award-winning romantic suspense debut.
BURNING CAINE is the first book in the Caine & Ferraro series and can be read as a standalone.
