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.Harriet Klausner
