One of a kind. Kat Martin's heroes are as rugged and tough as they come, but honor rules no matter how hot the temptation. . . For reporter Hope Sinclair, writing about the recovery of a sunken Spanish treasure off Pleasure Island should be her big break. Yet Hope can't help feeling she's been hand-picked for this job for all the wrong reasons. Someone wants Hope out of New York--and off a story that could blow a corruption case wide open. But if they think sending her to paradise will shut her up, they've got another thing coming. . . Treasure hunter and former Navy SEAL Conner Reese isn't happy to have Hope along for the ride. He doesn't need the publicity, nor does he want a gorgeous redhead driving his crew--and himself--to distraction. But there's something else. Conner can sense extreme danger, and danger is following Hope Sinclair very, very closely. . . Praise for Kat Martin's Midnight Sun "Terrific, adventurous fun." –RT Book Reviews "An interesting setting, perfect pacing, compelling plot, fascinating detail, charming secondary characters, and a resourceful and likable pair of protagonists." --Booklist "A terrific contemporary romance." --Booklist

In addition to such authors as Neil Hanson and Gary Kinder, Deep Blue includes classic writers like Melville, Conrad, and Crane, perennials such as Patrick O’Brian and Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and far-flung, little-known surprises, from free divers in trouble to arctic explorers fatally marooned in the marshes of Siberia.

Doc Ford has long lived a double life. This time, it may finally have caught up to him. The electrifying new thriller from the New York Times-bestselling author. “I’ll make an example of someone close to you.” On a moonless night on Sanibel Island, Florida, marine biologist Marion “Doc” Ford carefully watches a video of a hooded man executing three hostages. The man is an American working with ISIS, and in the next few days, it’ll be Ford’s job, as part of his shadowy second life, to make sure he never kills anybody else again. But a lot can go wrong in a few days, and Ford has no way of knowing that not only will the operation prove to be a lot more complicated than he has anticipated, but that he’ll end up bringing those complications back with him to the small community of boaters, guides, lovers, and friends in Dinkin’s Bay, where he’s long made his home. Someone has taken Ford’s actions very personally, and now no one there is safe – least of all, Ford himself. “White continues to provide thinking readers with action-packed thrillers that are also thoughtful and informative,” writes “By the end, you won’t be able to read fast enough.” Better get started now.
