There’s silver out there: Sabrina Eckhart is sure of it. And when she finds the hidden mine on that big piece of West Texas desert, all of her financial problems are solved. That is, if she can find it. The man with the skills she needs is private investigator Alex Justice─a former navy fighter pilot and a current pain in the neck.

When mysterious “accidents” start to plague their search, it seems Rina’s multi-acre inheritance might be more of a curse than a blessing. And yet, there’s still something sensual about the heat…his arrogance…her stubbornness…being thrust into each other’s arms by danger…But the vultures are circling, and if they don’t watch their backs, the relentless desert sun could be the last thing they ever see.


I will admit that when I started reading Against the Odds I was a bit afraid. I have not read any of the previous books in this series so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I was thrilled to find a story that kept me on the edge of my seat and did not make me feel like I missed anything by not reading the earlier books!

Due to the recession Sabrina Eckhart is strapped for money. She is selling off expensive car and jewelry and now wants to find out is the land she inherited from her late Uncle Walter is worth anything. She asks private eye Alex Justice to fly her out there. While in the helicopter they have a terrible almost deadly accident. Once they finally make it back home they discover that the accident may have been planned. But was it to kill Alex who had found evidence to put a child killer behind bars or is someone after Sabrina and her inheritance…

There is such a perfect mixture of romance, action and suspense in this book. Quite a few surprises and several scary moments had me not wanting to put this down. I can tell you for sure I will be picking up the previous 6 books this year and reading them all!
