Every family has at least one, right? One deep dark secret nobody likes to talk about. Or a secret that comes to light years later, catching everyone off guard and leaving a big, ugly mess in its wake.
For U.S. marshal Dana Massey, the heroine of my March Intrigue, The Secret of Cherokee Cove, when her brother is nearly killed in an auto crash that was no accident, she uncovers a tragic family secret so twisted, someone's willing to kill to keep it secret.
Dana needs to be able to control her world. It's the only way she knows how to cope with all that she's already lost in her life—her parents in a tragic car accident and her younger brother, an idealistic charity worker, to a terrorist attack.

But Dana's never been one to take no for an answer. Will her dogged determination lead her to the truth? Or headlong into danger?

With decades-old secrets—including a missing secret baby—being uncovered, it soon became apparent that Dana's family was at the center of the mystery. As Nix helped Dana solve this cold case, he found himself opening up more than he'd ever dared. Yet when it was over, she'd be leaving. Unless Detective Tall, Dark and Handsome took the scariest step of all….
