"Lots of suspense and action"
Three years ago, a car accident killed Gracie Beaumont's
father, husband and unborn child and for all effective
purposes Grace is only going through the motions of
living. The daughter of a rich man and the wife of a
powerful person, Grace took over the reigns of Sheffield
Media Inc. as the new CEO. The job occupied her mind so
much that she didn't have to think about all her losses.
One day at work Grace receives a letter that states that
the deaths were not an accident but a murder for hire
ordered by Booth Fortier, the top leader of the southern
Mafia. Her husband and father were going to expose his
dirty dealing with the governor and that's why they had to
be eliminated. Grace hires a PI firm to investigate the
charges and Jed Tyree serves as her bodyguard since the
case is bigger than she knows. Jed and Grace quickly
become a couple but he is afraid she will reject him when
she learns that he is the nephew of Booth Fortier.
Beverly Barton writes a thriving work of romantic suspense
that has readers totally absorbed in the story. The sexual
tension between the hero and the heroine is so powerful
that readers can empathize with their feelings of
insecurity. The villain comes across as a real person,
which makes him viler than many antagonists found in crime
thrillers. GRACE UNDER FIRE is a special book filled with
lots of suspense and action.
