Now the founder of HEAD, Andrew Phillips, is back and ready to finish what he'd started with a new and dastardly key player from the Dark web. Bryn Connelly is the Chief Audit Executive also for the WBA. She had been one of the Headman's targets and thought her days of danger were over. However, she finds herself working with laid back Matt Beckett, much to her dismay. It’s up to Matt and Bryn to finish what Reagan and her team started, but can he win the lovely Bryn and save the day? Or will he lose her forever if the WBA falls into the wrong hands?

Special Agent, Patrick McGinnis, can’t believe he’s on a wild goose chase for a missing groom. Unfortunately, once Patrick starts to dig, he finds there’s more to the tale and it will take all his skills as an agent to keep Glenna safe. Especially when the case takes a turn and threatens the safety of his son, Finn.
Excerpt from Disappear Book I:
Keira turned in her seat to look at Tyler. His jaw tight, eyes trained on the road. They’d been traveling together long enough she’d stopped seeing the similarities between his looks and the killer’s. Now all she noticed were the dissimilarities and ever since that turning point, she’d been fighting a battle of attraction herself. For him to just climb out of the car, then the next minute declare nothing had happened, really pissed her off.
Was that the only reason she was important to him, to catch Battista? Great he was the typical male, just trying to get in her panties. Now that he’d decided she was too important for that, he’d probably drop her at the safe house and go find a woman. That brought on a wave of jealousy so intense it shocked her. She’d never been a jealous person.
“Where are we going?” She realized she had no idea where the safe house was.
At least this was a much safer topic for her thoughts. Not watching him in her mind with some other woman locked in an embrace where she wanted to be. Jeez, she had it bad. Well she’d have to borrow a page from his book and pretend he didn’t matter. Should be easy, after all she’d just met him.
She jumped and brought her attention back, she’d forgotten about the question. “Are we staying in a hotel there?”
“No. A friend of mine has a place. It’s remote, in the Catskill mountains, where we won’t be bothered.”
Those words gave her pause. Not because of her attraction to him, but because they wouldn’t be close to help if needed.
“Anyone else know where this cabin is?”
“Only the owner and she won’t tell.”
She? That green monster rippled through her body again and she couldn’t hold back. “And she won’t mind you’re taking another woman there?”
She turned her attention to the road, and ridiculously blinking back tears. Out of the corner of her eye, saw him briefly turn his head and glare at her.
“She wants justice probably more than anyone.” He paused as if in thought.
She waited for him to continue, when he didn’t she couldn’t contain her curiosity. “Why?”
“She’s my cousin by marriage,” he said, and looked at her a little strange. “And the victim’s wife.”

What’s the first binge-worthy book you read and why was it a must-read?
I’ve read so many I’m not sure what it would be. So many times, I’ve finished a book at 3 or 4 in the morning, and then had to get up for work in a couple of hours. But if I must pick one, the first Dexter book of Jeff Lindsay’s Darkly Dreaming Dexter.
What makes your featured book a binge-worthy read?
I love New York and I came up with a Brooklyn Family on one of our very many visits there to visit our son. I know where the Becketts live their favorite places. The neighborhoods. It’s all about family loyalty and keeping each other safe.
