“The heroines in a new genre [women’s action-adventure] of romance novels are smart and tough enough to take down anyone who gets in their way.”           

USA Today


A covert unit of Security Specialists tasked with bringing down GRID, an international organization of black-market brokers of intelligence, weaponry systems, and technology run by the formidable Thomas Kunz, who will do anything to anyone anywhere to destroy America.


In this edgy romantic thriller, it’s suspense to the max with a powerhouse heroine smart and tough enough to take down anyone who gets in her way!  But can she live up to her reputation when facing the most dangerous adversary alive?

Hostiles infiltrate the highest corridors of government, the elite Secret Assignment Security Specialists (SASS) team is activated and Captain Amanda West is assigned the lead.  

While on an investigative mission to locate the offender, Amanda is captured and buried alive in a tomb by the ruthless SASS nemesis and black-market broker, Thomas Kunz.  She struggles, escapes and discovers she’s been missing not for three days but for three months!         

Where has she been?  What had happened to her?  This leads the horrified Amanda to Captain Mark Cross, another operative in a highly classified position who also has experienced a mysterious three-month absence. The memory issues puts their security clearances at risk, which puts their careers at risk.

Together, they must puzzle through events to protect the nation they swore to defend.  They must discover exactly what the diabolical Kunz is doing and stop him, for Kunz has been viciously clear.  He wants nothing more–and will accept no less–than the nation’s total destruction.

“Suspense to the max!  I can’t wait to read the next Vicki Hinze book.  I’ve got a whole new genre to enjoy now.  www.ArmchairInterviews has an enormous amount of respect for Hinze’s ability to conjure up a scintillating read.”  – Armchair Interviews

“An edgy romantic thriller [by] a very creative author.  It’s hard to tell the good guys from the bad and it appears no one can be trusted; this alone makes for an excellent tale.  Add in a kick butt heroine that shows no fear and [this] becomes a book that must be read.”  

– The Romance Readers Connection

“The heroines in a new genre of romance novels are smart and tough enough to take down anyone who gets in their way.”  –USA TODAY

“An economical read that moves forward like a European bullet train.  Not underwritten or overwritten — just the right words are there at the right time for the right response. The timing on when to stop the train for intimacy feels perfect. It’s like a piece of music; visceral, yet intimate experience that is loads of fun.

–William Olsen, Film Producer, Getting it On
