I read Lost, the first book in this series some time ago and recently found the two sequels. If you want to feel the emotions of the characters you will love them.
This is the fourth book in my Zodiac Series, in which each heroine was born under a different star or zodiac sign and exhibits the traits associated with her sign.
ICE Agent Neelie Nelson and Drew McBain have a habit of meeting in strange circumstances.
Targeted by la Serpiente de Coral Cartel and the most powerful and ruthless drug kingpin in Mexico, Drew reels from heartbreak after catastrophic heartbreak. The desire for revenge festers while he fights to rebuild his life and protect what is his.
Neelie has never been able to forgive her deceased husband for his unmitigated betrayal, and for his lack of forethought that has put her and everyone she cares for in mortal danger.
Anger, fear, and a mutual passion for revenge fan the flames of their smoldering desire and then a desperate situation forces them to act against the cartel. But how can they match its power?

At Granite’s Mill, deep in the backwoods of Virginia, a body is discovered with unusual physical characteristics. By morning, the media erupts over a headline in a local newspaper, ‘The Son of Virginia’s Governor is Missing’.
FBI Special Agent Jack Stanwick is handed the case. Realizing he’ll have to go outside the brethren, Jack marshals the help of an old friend, Raymond Davenport, who hung a sign on a renovated brownstone in Washington, DC, with the verbiage: Davenport Detective Agency. To assist him, he hired three former police officers from various precincts, who like himself, blew the whistle on dirty cops only to deal with the fervent hostility from the brotherhood.
With the investigation under way, the detectives stumble upon a group of men known as M.A.G.O.C., who’re muddled in a governmental conspiracy involving a top-ranking official at the White House. With their many resources, they dig further and unearth Prescott Chemicals. Years earlier, the owner and his lead chemist had stolen an elixir from the Mayapo natives of the Amazon rainforest and have transformed it into a formula to be used in a congressional scheme.
When the detectives accidently come into contact with the new formulation, something undesirable happens to one of them, altering his life forever.

FBI Psychic Arlette Xylander has two goals – to beat death, and have wild passionate sex with Andre Rossouw.
Why did hunky Andre Rossouw come into Arlette’s life on the same day her doctor told her she was about to die?
Attractive FBI Psychic Arlette Xylander displays all the character traits of her star sign, Aquarius, being feisty, eccentric, freedom-loving, flirtatious, rebellious and unpredictable. She may be only five feet tall, but she epitomizes the old adage that dynamite comes in small packages.
Her emotions rage between denial, anger and tears when her doctor tells her she is suffering from a rare terminal disease. When hunky Andre Rossouw asks her to help find his sister who has been missing for four years, Arlette makes two decisions. To beat the disease and find a cure, and to have wild and passionate sex with him.
Then she finds out he has a fiancée.
Arlette’s country home on the banks of Bayou LeGue was left to her by her mysterious aunt Lucie, whom she never met, and whom her dysfunctional parents have never been willing to discuss. She often wakes in the dark hours of the night to hear ghostly voices downstairs, and wishes she could find out who they are and what they want.
A mysterious letter arrives from her aunt, hinting at a secret in the house, and her friend, Reay, agrees to research her home’s recorded archives, while Arlette plans to dig into her family history. She starts by visiting her aunt’s grave, where she finds a mysterious woman wearing a hooded cloak, who leaves in a hurry. Arlette’s instincts tell her the woman holds the answers to all her questions, but how can she find her?
FBI psychic Arlette Xylander couldn’t predict that her doctor would give her such devastating news on the same day she met the man of her dreams.
She doesn’t allow the shattering diagnosis—a death sentence—from her doctor to prevent her from accepting the assignment to use her psychic powers in an attempt to find Andre Rossouw’s missing sister.
At the Rossouw farm she and Andre share a passionate kiss. Then she finds out he has a fiancée. It doesn’t deter her from placing him—or what she wants to do to him—at the top of her bucket list.
The kidnappers cannot risk being identified. Arlette knows she’s getting close to finding the missing girl when she’s viciously attacked. What desperate and terrifying lengths will they go to next?
FBI psychic Arlette Xylander accepts the mission to help find Andre Rossouw’s missing sister, but her doctor has given her six months to live. Will she be able to complete her quest in that time?
A strong mutual attraction draws her into Andre’s arms for a stolen kiss—and then she finds out he has a fiancée. But it doesn’t stop her from putting him at the top of her bucket list, and failure is not in Arlette’s vocabulary. She is an Aquarius, after all, and true to type—rebellious and independent..
There’s only one way you can stop a psychic from getting information, right? A vicious attack tells Arlette she’s getting close to revealing the kidnappers’ identities, and she has to find the strength and resourcefulness to overcome their terrifying and reckless attempts to thwart her investigation.
Could a mysterious woman wearing a hooded cloak hold the key to a cure for Arlette’s disease?
Her quest to find the missing girl brings clues, and the shattering information that Andre has a fiancée.
Tensions escalate when Arlette is viciously attacked, and she wonders if she’ll run out of time before fulfilling her quest.
Back in the day identifying a fiction book genre was simple. The choices were limited to romance, suspense, mystery, comedy, historical, western, etc. Most were identified with one word. Now, it is almost impossible to classify a book’s genre using only one word, as so many sub-categories have been created, originally to facilitate search engine keywords.
A lot of people don’t seem to know the difference between a suspense thriller and a mystery, so here it is:
In suspense, the reader knows what the bad guy (antagonist) is up to before the protagonist knows. The reader’s inside knowledge that someone is lying in ambush waiting for the unsuspecting character creates suspense. The actual ambush makes it a thriller.
In a mystery, the reader only knows what the primary characters know. If they’re hunting for a clue, you don’t know where they may find it, and if someone is going to ambush them, you won’t know until it happens.
My Redneck P.I. Mystery Series are romantic mystery/comedies.
My Zodiac Series are romantic suspense/thrillers.
Animals always play an important part.
