Book 1 of The Otter Creek Series from Rebecca Deel
Four burglaries. Three assaults. One murder.
Not the crime stats Police Chief Ethan Blackhawk envisions for his first two weeks on the job. Ethan uncovers a link to his past, an assassin who bested him five years ago and again hunts in his territory. He welcomes a second chance to capture the assassin…until he falls in love with the only witness. This time a failure to unmask the assassin may cost Ethan everything.
Wielding a sharp knife, personal chef Serena Cahill dices vegetables and dishes dinner for clients. When she interrupts a crime in progress, Serena steps into the crosshairs of an international assassin. After a friend disappears and her business implodes, she joins forces with Ethan to trap a killer before he takes out the next target–Serena.
And the companion series- The Fortress
Saving her sister might require the ultimate sacrifice.
Brenna Mason’s sister has been missing for more than a week. She failed Dana years before with disastrous consequences. She won’t do it again. She’s determined to find Dana and bring her home. But someone is just as determined to stop her. Within hours of her arrival in town, Brenna’s life is threatened. As a writer, Brenna crafts killer sentences, but she doesn’t have the skills to take on a real killer. To save Dana, her only hope is to team up with a man who has his own agenda.
As a former Navy SEAL, Eli Wolfe saw more than enough innocents slaughtered to populate his dreams with bloody ghosts. After his PI mentor is murdered, Eli hunts for the killer. What he finds is a woman with a mission bigger than his. But Brenna doesn’t know that Eli asked Dana for a favor which might have led to her disappearance.
Working together to search for Brenna’s sister, they discover connections to a human trafficking ring Eli and his SEAL team encountered a few years earlier. With only 48 hours until Dana is lost in the black underbelly of human trafficking, Eli and Brenna must rescue her before the deadline. When Brenna is kidnapped by the traffickers, Eli races to find both sisters before time runs out. For Eli, the stakes have never been higher. Now that he’s fallen in love with Brenna, losing her might cost Eli his sanity and his life.
