Praise for Gone to Dust, Book 2:
“Lucky fans of the super-talented Hart don’t have to wait long for the second installment of her new romantic suspense series Gravediggers, as the installments are being released back to back. In the first book, Hart set up her world where five men, declared dead to the world at large, work for a super-secret anti-terrorism force. Hart’s new heroine is a very talented romance writer who takes no crap from anyone — even secret commandos. Miller and Elias are both funny and sexy together, which helps make this book nonstop entertainment, with plenty of witty bantering and thrilling adventure!”
—RT 4 ½ star TOP PICK Review

“Modern Cliterature...Enjoy [this] lusty [passage] adapted from summer’s raciest reads…”
Cosmopolitan, July 2017

Praise for The Darkest Corner, Book 1:
“Gritty, deadly, and peppered with unexpected humor, this supersexy, adrenaline-charged story will keep readers on edge and breathless until the last page.”
—Library Journal

“Liliana Hart sets up a fascinating and intriguing premise of individual men forced into taking extreme steps. Her heroine’s reluctant immersion into this world allows readers to discover the treachery and danger looming all around…a thrilling series!”
—RT

“A cool blend of entertaining antics and suspenseful moments, with a slightly morbid sense of humor thrown in for good measure. (Our heroine was a mortician, after all!) I had a blast getting to know this cast of characters and can’t wait to see what exciting things Liliana Hart has in store for us next.”
—Harlequin Junkie

About the book:
New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Liliana Hart’s second book in her sexy, suspenseful Gravediggers series, GONE TO DUST, features an elite group of mysterious men who might be dead to the world, but are also tasked with saving it—and no one can ever know.

The Gravediggers aren’t exactly what they seem. They’re the most elite of the world’s fighting forces—and all they have in common is that they’ve been betrayed by the countries they’ve died for. Because they are dead. To their country, their military, and their families. Sometimes the dead do rise…

Miller Darling is one of the most popular romance novelists of her time. Not bad for a woman who doesn’t believe in romance. She’s as logical as they come, and she doesn’t believe in happily-ever-afters. What she does believe in is family, so when her brother disappears, she doesn’t think twice about packing her bag and her laptop and heading out to find him.

Elias Cole lived and breathed the live of a Navy SEAL. Now he’s “dead” and his hero’s honor tarnished. The only thing keeping him sane are the men who are like him—The Gravediggers—and the woman who makes his head spin. He’s never met anyone like Miller Darling. Her smart mouth and quick wit keep him on his toes, and damned if he doesn’t find that appealing.

When Miller receives a package from the brother who abandoned her asking for help, it’s clear she’s in over her head with the mess he’s gotten himself into. She needs a professional, and Elias is just the man for the job. Only her brother is a former SEAL—the man who left his team to die—and Elias is more interested in vengeance than saving his life.

Nikki’s Review:

I just need to come out and say it right from the beginning...I loved this book! Man, I haven't had so much fun reading a book in a long time. I laughed out loud so many times. Gone to Dust, isn't a romantic comedy, but the heroine is sarcastic and sassy in the best possible way!

I adored the heroine, Miller! She's full of snark and witty comebacks. But she's also a really great person. She's completely genuine and someone I would want to be friends with. I won't say too much, but the part where she rips the UPS guy a new asshole for knocking on her door is absolutely priceless, and belly laugh inducing! Oy! The things that come out of her mouth! 

Elias is a swoon worthy hero. He's a bit broody, but delicious all at the same time. His sense of honour and duty is inspiring. Plus, he's hot, so that's enough for Miller's girlie bits to take notice. 

The premise of this series is so exciting. A super secret agency of the worlds most highly trained operatives fighting to save us all from the really bad guys. I like the camaraderie between the teammates. They've essentially been forced into their roles within the Gravediggers, but the bond they've formed is by choice. Loyalty is first and foremost.

The whole time I was reading this book and going on this adventure with Miller and Elias through the Jungle, I was reminded of that movie from the 80's, Romancing the Stone. I love that movie! 

While there is plenty of heart stopping action and adventure in this book, there is also a whole lot of romance. The steamy kind of romance that I crave in a book. 

Liliana Hart outdid herself with this one. I've been a fan of her writing for years. But this book was incredible. The plot is stellar. I think this may be my favourite novel by Ms. Hart. 

As always, because I'm ridiculously OCD when it comes to reading books in order, I think you should start at the beginning of the series with, The Darkest Corner, to get the best enjoyment. You can read this as a stand alone, but the whole premise of the series is set up in the first novel.

If you're looking for a book that has a heroine who is full of spit and vinegar, but is so damn likeable, and a hero who is sex on legs...read this! 


Rating: 5 Stars (A+)
