About the Book
“You’re heading down a dark path. I’ve seen it happen before. Reporters getting obsessed about things they can’t change.”
When journalist Tempest Ross encounters suspicious circumstances surrounding her parents’ death, she just can’t let it go, but pursuing the truth turns out to be deadlier than she realized. Her boyfriend, FBI agent Ryan O’Toole, has survived many dangerous missions, but this time the stakes are even higher as he tries to crack a diamond smuggling operation amidst insider corruption. Now both their lives – and their relationship – are at risk. Anne-Marie Fletcher may be a capable nurse, but personal insecurities make her flee to the NWT, where she inadvertently gets mixed up in the diamond heist.
Once again, follow the lives of three separate, but connected people as they navigate danger, corruption, and international intrigue. Tempest Tossed, Book 3 in the Three Strand Cord Series, reacquaints readers with characters from Books 1 and 2, bringing their story arcs to a close while reaffirming that unconditional love – including that of the heavenly Father – is worth more than diamonds.
Ryan leaned back in his desk chair, a foot straddling one knee as he drummed impatient fingers on the armrest. Tempest actually thought he might be a dirty cop! It stung.
Yes, they had been experiencing some issues lately, and he was man enough to admit that most of it was his fault. But he did have a job to do and for that he couldn’t apologize. Trained as a cop, now a Special Agent with the FBI, he’d reached the pinnacle of his career. He couldn’t just give it all away. For a woman.
But Tempest wasn’t just any woman. She was at one and the same time perceptive and naive; brave yet afraid to take a risk. Despite the fact that she was a journalist working for a hard-nosed guy like Frank Dunlop, she wasn’t cut out of that same cloth. She needed to be sheltered, and he had elected himself to do it.
His fingers stilled. Who was he kidding? It was so much more than that. He loved her. That was the real bottom line. So much so that he wanted to put a ring on it.
Which was why breaking up with her was the best option. It was the only way to create some distance so that she would be out of danger. What he was involved in right now – what she had tipped him off to by telling him about those photographs – could get dangerous. Deadly, even. And he wouldn’t allow her to be put in harm’s way. No matter his own feelings.
