Taylor Harrison goes to Seattle to find out why his grandfather was almost murdered by his partner.  He feels the answer revolves around the older man’s desire to keep the much younger Melia Lucas in glitter and money.  To get to the bottom of the mystery, he gets close to her.  But he soon finds himself ensnared by Melia’s charms as much as his grandfather’s partner obviously had been.  Will he end up a casualty as well?

When Melia’s parents died in a murder/suicide eight years ago, she never believed that her father murdered her mother and took his own life, leaving her an orphan and alone.  But she doesn’t completely trust Taylor, either, although she has fallen for him in a totally unexpected way.  As they work together to uncover the truth, they find the two cases are connected and danger lurks around Melia.  Will they find the answers in time to save her?

When Lisa Claxton starts her own cleaning business on Paradise Island, she may finally profit from her talent for whipping a house into shape—in more ways than one.

But when she arrives she finds a dead body—and flees right into the safe arms of an irresistibly handsome man. . .

But She's About To Find So Much More. . .

Injured Navy SEAL Brian Knight came to his grandfather's house to recuperate. He didn't expect to be greeted by a frightened beauty—or to get mixed up in her scheme. But Brian has to pursue the killer who invaded the house—and he's determined to pursue Lisa as well. Soon, the two are up against ruthless thieves whose intentions are more than deadly. . .

     Discovering her own life in danger and desire between her and Neil growing hot, can the two band together to weave through the maze of secrets and lies to find the truth?
