Twelve years ago, Lei Zhang and her friend Emma Nilsson miraculously lived through the notorious Sorority Row Murders that left twenty-one of their sisters dead. Still wrestling with the trauma but finally out of the limelight, Lei and Emma are now devoted to helping other victims find closure. But most disturbing for Lei—beyond the gut-wrenching survivor guilt—is that the killer was her boyfriend. He’s behind bars, but she’ll never lower her guard again.

When a copycat killer targets Lei and Emma, FBI Agent Dante Young is put in charge of anticipating the sociopath’s every move. But what he doesn’t expect is his immediate and overpowering attraction to Lei. The closer they get to each other, the more desperate and terrifying the questions become: Who wants to finish what the killer started—and why?

Now Agent Young vows to protect Lei at all costs. If they have any chance of a future together, first they have to stay alive…


Bone-chillingly diabolical! The third book in Katee Robert’s Hidden Sins series brings us an electrifying mystery from start to finish! We’re kept guessing time and time again about who could be working with this criminal mastermind to torment the victims he already scarred for life. It’s definitely an unputdownable read! Loved it!

Lei Zhang and her friend Emma Nilsson survived the unthinkable a dozen years ago when they were the only two to walk away from a sorority house massacre. They leaned on each other in order to be able to pick themselves up and put themselves back together in whatever hobbled fashion they could. They will never be the innocent young ladies they were before this nightmare happened, but the strength they found deep within themselves allowed them to become the superstars they are today!

FBI agent Dante Young is handed a case that mimics the Sorority Row Murders in a scary way. He has no choice but to hunt Lei and Emma down and pay them a visit to see what type of light they might be able to shed on the case. He admires the women he finds and the good work they put themselves into doing for victims and their families. Will his visit bring trouble to their doorstep, or will it turn out it was already there?

He’s definitely a hero…

But is he the right hero for her?

Moving to Cape Pursuit, Virginia, gives Nicole Wheeler the fresh start she desperately needs. But there’s a catch: Kevin Ruggles, the handsome firefighter who welcomes her to town. Kevin is brave, ambitious and committed to the same career that killed her brother. Nicole can’t go down that path again…no matter how much her heart protests.


A fresh start might be just what she needed! With the first book in the Cape Pursuit Firefighters series, we meet Nicole and Kevin. He really likes her, but she’s got a major chip on her shoulder. We can understand as we hear her story of why she’s got the hang ups that she does, but we hold out hope that nice guy Kevin will be able to sway her to his point of view! The only thing I wasn’t overly fond of in the book was that Jane & Charlie’s story was stealing the limelight. A classic case of secondary characters being too strong … they really should have been a separate book all on their own with only hints of the start of something in this one.

Nicole Wheeler is emotionally drained, but she’s looking forward to starting fresh here in Cape Pursuit, Virginia. Her college friend Jane has offered her a job just when she needed it most to get away from the heartache of losing her little brother, and she needs to brighten her world up a bit … and what better way than to meet a man!

Kevin Ruggles doesn’t exactly welcome Nicole to town in the usual way, but it doesn’t take him long at all to be smitten with her … only problem is, he has the bad luck of being a firefighter … the one job she will never find acceptable after it stole her brother from her!

Rian Sutter grew up with the finer things in life. Spending summers in the Hamptons was a normal occurrence for her until her parents lost everything years ago. Now Rian and her sister are getting their life, and finances, back on track through real estate. Not only do they buy and sell houses to the rich and famous but they finally have the capital to flip their very own beachfront property. But when she catches the attention of a sexy stranger who snaps up every house from under her, all bets are off…

Pierce Whitfield doesn’t normally demo kitchens, install dry wall, or tear apart a beautiful woman’s dreams. He’s just a down-on-his-luck lawyer who needed a break from the city and agreed to help his brother work on a few homes in the Hamptons. When he first meets Rian, the attraction is undeniable. But when they start competing for the same pieces of prime real estate, the early sparks turn into full-blown fireworks. Can these passionate rivals turn up the heat on their budding romance—without burning down the house?


Deep, sexy and just plain fun! Laugh out loud moments caught my attention, and extreme sexual chemistry between Rian and Pierce kept it! The story line is fairly fast paced as we’re drawn into the story of Rian’s past and our attention is held trying to figure out what’s going to come of the two of them and the properties their siblings are fighting over!

She hasn’t summered in the Hamptons since her family lost their fortune years ago, but Rian Sutter is enjoying being back in her old stomping ground! She and her sister have finally done well enough in their real estate business to afford to buy a fixer upper to flip, and they’re not going to stop there!

Lawyer Pierce Whitfield doesn’t usually spend his summers doing construction, but he’s a bit down and out with his career at the moment and using some downtime to help his brother out with some renovation properties. When he meets Rian and sparks fly, he figures he just might be in for a summer fling … but when they start competing for the same properties on the beach, sparks of a different type start flying!
