Amazon KindleNookKoboApple BooksBooks 2 ReadSmashwords

The award-winning, thrilling, complete story of Gabriela Martinez and Richard Harrison, as they try to keep one step ahead from madmen who are trying to kill them.

THE COIN (Book One) – A coin found, a terrible secret, and a psychopath who will stop at nothing to keep that secret safe.

When Gabriela Martinez finds a French coin on one of her outings, she never thought the possession of it could get her killed. Only Richard Harrison, the intelligence operative sent to protect her, can save her from this madman, who will do everything to silence Gabriela. And when the psychological games to terrorize Gabriela escalate, Richard must find a solution, or it may be too late for both their lives and their love.

Set in the exotic French Riviera, The Coin is a story of hatred, betrayal, love and duty–terrible and painful choices that, nonetheless, bring about personal triumph.

THE BOOK OF HOURS (Book 2) – For Gabriela Martinez, psychopaths do hit twice.

Four years ago, when Gabriela Martinez almost lost her life to a sociopath’s twisted vision, she never thought she’d be hunted again.

After catching a glimpse of Gabriela’s new work, The Book of Hours, Arnold Wickeham has been like a man possessed. Now, he will do anything to claim it, and no one, especially not Gabriela, will stand in his way.

Now that her life is being threatened once more, Richard Harrison will risk everything, not only to protect her, but especially to get her back in his life. However, the stakes are higher this time around and there is much more to lose. Together, Gabriela and Richard must find a way to stay one step ahead of the danger, if not, Gabriela’s life, but especially their future together, may very well go up in flames.

Set in California and in London, The Book of Hours is a story about greed, dangerous obsession, family duty, and, especially deserved second chances.

“The Coin is a suspenseful, sexy, romantic thriller…a page-turner — Kirkus Reviews”

“Dare I say that The Book of Hours may have been better than The Coin? Along with the action, suspense, romance, and murder attempts, who wouldn’t enjoy this book? – Books, Reviews, Links, and a Little Extra”


A fast-paced tale of romantic suspense that will have you on the edge of your seat. I found the narration to be quite fascinating. His voice was perfect for adding the right tough of suspense. That plot, the author wrote one that flows until BAM, there’s a twist and it continues through the story. I love stories like that. The characters were well developed and written into the story well. I found myself engaged into the story from the beginning. The only thing missing was my ear buds so I could listen to this all the time. Excellent story.

Read All Reviews for The Coin


HOLY HELL! I think I LOVED The Book of Hours even more than The Coin if possible. It’s been some time since Richard & Gabriela’s last crazy journey filled with danger. Of course, Gabiela is now in danger again because she won’t sell something to a person who shouldn’t be allowed out anywhere on his own since that person is like a spoiled child who wants to bully their way into getting what they want so let the games begin. Once again, I was drawn in completely from the jump as this story hijacked all my attention until every last page was devoured. The twists were coming in hot, and my head was spinning trying to figure out how it would all pan out, not to mention poor Richard, and his unrequited love for his charge. I’ve fallen completely in love with this brilliant author so I’ll just be over here impatiently waiting on the next book as I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
