Romantic Suspense Amber Beach:
Honor Donovan is a shrewd businesswoman, yet she has been shut out of Donovan International by her father and four brothers. When her favorite brother Kyle vanishes, along with a fortune in stolen amber, Honor's questions are ignored by the Donovan males. Defying them, she heads to the San Juan Islands of the Pacific Northwest in search of answers. Honor needs a guide because she knows nothing about running a boat -- and she knows nothing about Jake Mallory until he answers her ad. One of the things she doesn't know is that Jake is much more than a fishing guide. Until Kyle disappeared, Jake was brokering amber deals in the Baltic for Donovan International. Honor is completely unaware of the old wars, new politics, greed, and stolen amber that have lured ruthless, high-stakes players from around the globe. Jake wants no part of the intrigue, or of a Donovan woman in his life, but he suspects the Donovans have set him up to take the fall for Kyle's treachery. The way Jake sees it, some Donovan is going to pay for his troubles, and it just may turn out to be Honor.Jade Island:
Kyle Donovan has freed himself from the constraints of his father's high-powered global trading empire to turn his passion for adventure into a livelihood, roving the world as a treasure hunter for his own business, Donovan Gems and Minerals. Now his oldest brother, Archer, President of Donovan International, has given Kyle an assignment with explosive international implication, and an alliance that will shake the very core of his being.
Lianne Blakely, the illegitimate daughter of a powerful Hong Kong trader and his American mistress, has spent years studying the art of ancient jade, hoping to win the approval of her Chinese family. A brilliant gemologist, she has gained employment in the Tang family business, if not acceptance in the family. Now the Jade Emperor, one of China's legendary cultural treasures, has been stolen and Lianne is accused of the theft.
At first suspicious of the bright, ambitious family outcast, Kyle finds himself reluctantly believing her fierce claim of innocence and irresistably drawn to her exotic beauty. Soon they have joined forces to find the real thief-a venture that draws them into the perils of spiraling international power plays, and the discovery that their mutual love for an exquisite gemstone has linked them in an alliance as enduring as the beauty of the ancient jade.Pearl Cove:
Surrounded by potential enemies, Hannah McGarry faces the mystery of her husband's suspicious death, the prospect of bankruptcy...and the disappearance of the fabulous Black Trinity necklace that was to be her financial security. Desperate, she calls Archer Donovan, a silent partner in Pear Cove, her late husband's pearl farm venture. He might help her...if the price is right.
Archer Donovan would rather forget he'd ever heard of Pearl Cove...its memories of living on the dark side, the soul-numbing certainty that there was no law, no justice, no mercy; just hunters and the hunted. That life taught him to trust no one but family. But when Hannah McGarry calls in an old debt Archer is back in the game. And at his side in pursuit of the stolen fortune is a woman he shouldn't want, yet cannot resist...a woman who may know more than she's telling about her husband's death...and more than is safe to know about the dark and elusive black pearls. With deadly competitors on their tails, Archer and Hannah race through uncharted waters in search of the fabulous Black Trinity. And the closer they come to finding the coveted pearls, the closer they come to danger and death...and to each other.Midnight in Ruby Bayou:
Since the breakup of a disappointing love affair, Faith Donovan has poured her heart and soul into making the exquisite artistic jewelry favored by the rich and famous. She needs rubies of the finest quality and to get them, she needs Owen Walker, a man with an intimate knowledge of the ruby trade. The idea of working with Faith makes Owen nervous. He suspects that protecting her and the fabulous wedding necklace commissioned by the Montegeaus, a family descended from smuggles and pirates, will be more dangerous than smuggling rubies out of Afghanistan.
Soon the two are drawn into a terrifying web of greed, corruption, and betrayal, as they discover shameful secrets of generations of Montegeaus-a discovery that has them racing for their lives across the black waters of the salt marshes, pursued by greedy men and a deadly past.Download Instructions:Download from HugeFiles
