When one of fiction’s brightest stars receives an unexpected package in the mail, little does she know that it will set her life on a collision course with deception, danger, and romance. But will she be able to survive long enough to enjoy the ride? Find out in the second installment of Liliana Hart’s Gravediggers series, Gone to Dust. 

Liliana Hart's GONE TO DUST

Pocket Books

Who are the Gravediggers? They’re the best of the world’s fighting forces, men who have been burned by the countries they fought for. Tess Sherman (who we met in the first volume of this series, The Darkest Corner) is married to one of them. Her best friend is Miller Darling, a romance novelist who doesn’t really believe in romance. Still, she is immensely witty and fun, even if she is insecure and naive.

Then the aforementioned package arrives containing her brother’s finger, a ring that belonged to their father, and instructions to persuade her brother to return an ancient artifact to its rightful owner.

Only hours away from a book deadline with her publisher, Miller impetuously puts everything on hold to decode the letters her brother sent her over the past year in the hope she can discover where he is before it is too late.

Enter Elias Cole, a Gravedigger and former Navy SEAL who “died” under dishonorable circumstances. He realizes Miller won’t last an hour if she goes in search of her brother alone. They soon join forces and as the action accelerates, tensions mount and sparks fly between Miller and Elias.

Hart does a spectacular job blending humor and intrigue in this sexy, thrilling story that will leave you craving more. At moments dark and gritty, Gone to Dust is also somehow buoyant and light, populated by authentic characters we come to care about, laugh with and root for. It is a story that brings together a network of heroes determined to keep us safe, even when we don’t know they’re there. This is an addictive read you won’t want to end. So it’s a good thing the third book in the series, Say No More, is coming out July 25. Stay tuned!

    The second installment in Liliana Hart’s new Gravedigger series combines nailbiting suspense, steamy romance, and harrowing danger in a story that is as riveting as it is addictive. GONE TO DUST is just as good as we’d hoped it would be.
