She wants revenge. He wants her.
Blackballed from underwater archaeology after accusations of artifact trafficking, Erica Kesling has a new job and a new life on the other side of the country and is working to clear her name. She's closing in on her goal when she's distracted by a sexy, charismatic intern who makes her want something other than revenge.
But Lee Scott is no intern. He's looking for the lead conspirator in an international artifact smuggling scheme, and Erica is his prime suspect. He'll do whatever it takes to win her trust and get her to reveal her secrets, even seduce her.
★★★★★ "A first rate romantic suspense debut that combines pulse pounding action with...pulse pounding romance!" - Manda Collins, author of the Studies in Scandal series.
"Full of secrets, deadly intrigue and steamy romance. A MUST read." - Elisabeth Naughton, New York Times Bestselling Author
This book is a thriller plus the usual “romance” already abundant in the genre. The writing is informed and structured with a complex plot that gives Erica agency I rarely see women receive and is greatly appreciated. However, I take issue with how Erica’s sexual assault felt ignored simply because it wasn’t rape, and that Erica’s choice to stay with a man who emotionally and sexually exploited her was painted as a “good” ending rather than the dark and disturbing reality that it reflects.45
Start this series. I promise you’ll love. Rachel Grant has perfectly blended romance and suspense!55
Romantic suspense is my favourite genre and in my opinion Rachel Grant is one of the best authors out there. I have read all her books and there isn’t a dud among them. Her heroines are smart and sassy, her heroes are strong, heroic but also believable and her books lead you on a journey that will excite and intrigue. She fits in plenty of drama, lots of heat and you never feel cheated by the ending. I can’t recommend any of Rachel Grants books strongly enough if you’re a romantic suspense fan.55
Really enjoyed the book. Kept me on the edge of my seat till the end. So many twists and turns. And that ending I’ve never guessed.55
Author Rachel Grant was recommended by an author whose books I read and really enjoy. After reading Cold Evidence, I knew that I would read every book I could by Ms. Grant. Concrete Evidence is an exciting, intriguing and fast paced book. Erica Kesling is hiding a secret and is unsure who she can trust which only further isolates her. Meeting Lee Scott reinforces her need to further hide her secrets. Who can she trust? Will opening up further implicate her in a crime? A fast paced and fantastic book. Will worth reading!55
This was worthy. This was written by an author with talent. This was worth my time.55
Amazing book. I kept telling myself to put it down and get some house work done, but I was quite mesmerized by the whole story and astounded at the twist at the end. NOT expected. Also appreciated the tie in to history. Very well done.55
Couldn't put it down!!55
It has been a long time since I became so engrossed in a book! The original storyline, unique characters, and blend of action, romance, and mystery were all perfectly balanced to create a great book!55
