Lauren Gallagher’s life changed almost three years ago. After her husband disappeared at sea, she was left with a failing pleasure boat company and more than a few secrets. Now, after years spent rebuilding the business and paying off the pile of debts, she finally feels in control. But when she finds her husband, actually dead, on the floor, she becomes the leading suspect in his murder investigation.
Garrett McGrath wants Lauren in his bed, not his heart. He doesn’t do emotions, but every time he sees her, holding himself back gets harder and harder. When Lauren comes under suspicion for killing her previously presumed-dead husband, he knows he has to help her, any way he can.
But as the danger becomes more intense and Garret and Lauren grow closer than either planned, they’re in danger of losing everything…including their hearts.
Helenkay Dimon spent the years before becoming a romance author as a . . . divorce attorney. Not the usual transition, she knows. Good news is she now writes full time and is much happier. She has sold over thirty novels, novellas, and shorts to numerous publishers. Her nationally bestselling and award-winning books have been showcased in numerous venues, and her books have twice been named "Red-Hot Reads" and excerpted in Cosmopolitan magazine. But if you ask her, she'll tell you the best part of the job is never having to wear pantyhose again.
When Laura Gallagher's husband disappeared, and was presumed dead, it turned her world upside down, not only was she left alone to deal with their failing business, but also with all the rumors that followed his death. Him leaving the way he did left her frustrated, and also made her realize she didn't really know her husband at all, he had done a lot of things that she couldn't fathom him doing. But little by little in the last three years she has begun to piece it back together, and has even started to see someone new, and it feels good to finally be moving on. But then a ghost shows up on her doorstep and throws her new life into a tailspin once again...
The moment Garrett McGrath met Laura he knew he wanted her, she is beyond beautiful, strong willed, but she doesn't seem to want anything he has to offer. But that hasn't deterred him at all, he still randomly shows up on her doorstep, bringing her meals, and trying to lure her out of her shell, in hopes one day she will give in and accept his offer for a date. Just when he things he is gaining some serious headway with her, a ghost from her past shows up, and it tests the bounds of their little bond. Now there is danger swirling around her, and all be damned if Garrett is going to let anything happen to his beautiful girl...
The Negotiator is a sexy little action packed page turner that is sure to have readers teetering on the edge of their seats the whole way through! The moment I started it I was hooked, I just had to know if these two would finally find their way to one another, or if all the danger surrounding them would win out, and keep them apart. It was such a good read, the story line was intriguing, the characters were uniquely crafted, and all that compiled together made for one explosive little literary escape!! Highly recommend this one, Dimon's wonderful characters are sure to hold you captive from start to finish!!
