Blurb for In the Shadow of Greed

Brilliant cryptologist Dr. Sarah Tu races against time to block the most dangerous Internet malware ever created, a botnet called QUALNTO. While Sarah is closed off in her computer lab, her sister, Hanna, is brutally attacked and left in a coma. As Sarah reels with guilt over not being there for her sister, a web of deception closes in, threatening her and everyone she loves.


Hanna's condition is misleading. In her coma state, she is able to build a psychic bridge with FBI Special Agent Jason McNeil. Her cryptic messages plague Jason to keep Sarah safe.

Tough and street-smart Jason McNeil doesn't believe in telepathic messages, and fights the voice inside his head. His first impression of Dr. Sarah Tu is another stiletto wearing ice-dragon on the wall path--until he witnesses her facade crumble after seeing her sister's bloody, tortured body. Jason's protective instinct kicks in. He fall for Sarah--hard.

When an extremely dangerous arms dealer and cybercriminal discovers that Sarah blocked his botnet, he kidnaps Sarah. Placed in an impossible position, will she destroy the botnet to protect national security or release to save the man she loves?  

Excerpt from In the Shadow of Greed: An intimate moment between Jason and Sarah. Enjoy!


The heat of Sarah’s warm breath against his skin sent a shock wave of bliss through him. Jason clutched the bottom sheet, fisting the cool fabric in his hands. The thick mattress held his weight, but when Sarah worked her way to his other nipple, the muscles in his arms trembled.
“So are you. Beautiful,” she whispered, and brought her lips over his neck, shoulder, caressing every spot her lips could reach. Her light touch left a path of sizzling fire over his skin until he thought he would burst into flames.
Her skin was satin and he ached to stroke every inch of her with his mouth until he took her to a place where only they existed. But he couldn’t rush this moment, couldn’t rush her.
His fingers loosened the front hook and eye on her lace bra, releasing two perfect ivory mounds. His hand drifted up and cupped a full breast, his fingers softly pinching the nipple. A hitched breath escaped Sarah’s lips, which sent a jolt through him. He sucked in air and let it out slowly, trying to calm his pounding heartbeat before he embarrassed himself. He never wanted anyone as much as he wanted this woman.
His mouth sought hers for a searing kiss. This time he didn’t hold back anything. And from her response, she didn’t want him to.
As the kiss deepened, his hands drifted to the other breast, savoring the feel, and then down her abdomen, stopping at the thin lace that covered her core. He paused. Sarah arched her back and her hand covered his, spreading his fingers out over the silk fabric.
“Sarah?” His fingers begged to move, caress, burn through the triangle of fabric until skin scorched skin.
 “If you stop now, I’ll shoot you with your own gun.”
He didn’t think it was possible to laugh, but he did. “There’s an image, babe.” His lips locked back down on her mouth and he gently yanked at the seam of the thong to pull it down, but the seam ripped.

“Can't apologize,” he said in a rough whisper.
