A gruesome murder linking to a famous painting sends FBI Criminal Profiler Eli Archer down a path of lies, deceit… and infatuation.    Eli Archer has been called many things at the Bureau, but carefree and light-hearted aren’t two of them. As one of the FBI’s top criminal profilers, Eli spends his days inside the minds of sadistic serial killers, and he’s got the brooding eyes and permanently packed suitcase to prove it. Days, murderers, and dead bodies blend together until he gets a call about a homicide that’s shockingly similar to a case that haunts him. He catches the next flight to the small, southern town of Berry Springs even though there’s no way the cases are connected because he already caught the killer… unless he didn’t.  Payton Chase grew up in a family rich in money, dysfunction, and secrets, leaving her with a mountain of cash and emotional brick wall to match. Determined to gain independence from her past, Payton buries herself in work, chasing her dream of becoming a network news anchor. When a young woman is found tortured to death, Payton is certain that this is the opportunity to catapult her into the spotlight… she just has to figure out how to work with the secretive—and incredibly sexy—federal agent who’s on the case.  As Payton's and Eli’s chemistry steams hotter than the heat wave blazing through the mountains, another victim is found that looks eerily like Payton, and Eli fears she may just get her lead story… with her name as the headline.   THE SHADOW is a standalone romantic suspense novel.    Click to Buy
