The stakes are higher and the danger is bigger in Dana Marton’s HQ: Texas miniseries.

A mission gone wrong forced injured soldier Jamie Cassidy to start anew…and run right into the path of deputy sheriff Bree Tridle. The sassy, sexy Texan was as determined to uncover a local money-laundering scheme as Jamie was to keep her safe from the stalker hot on her trail. But Jamie, now an undercover operative, was also on a covert mission of his own: track smugglers threatening to bring terrorists into the U.S. Could Jamie’s and Bree’s cases be related? When a deadly attack on Bree’s home escalates the danger and their attraction, Jamie and Bree must face their enemies together to save not only their country, but their one chance at love.


Review: This is my first time reading Dana Marton’s work and I have to say I am totally impressed. I totally love this story. It is filled with suspense, mystery, action, romance and drama, all the ingredients needed for a superb and exciting read.

Jamie Cassidy is a man who is a magnet for danger and with his type of job danger is inevitable. Jamie is not your typical romance hero. He had been seriously injured on one of his missions which led to him being a double amputee. As a result he avoided relationships with the opposite sex at all cost as he did not want to be pitied. This all changed when he crossed paths with Deputy Sheriff Bree Tridle. The attraction between these two was not only instantaneous but also hot and sizzling. They both tried to fight the attraction, each for their own personal reasons but the fight eventually proved futile.

I was totally impressed with Bree. She is a tough as nails law enforcement officer who is dedicated to her job and family.

This story is filled with so many twists that had me on the edge of my seat. Just when I thought I had one puzzle figured out another one developed.

Ms. Marton’s writing style enabled me to connect with the characters thus making this quite an enjoyable and satisfying read. Now that I have read this title I am looking forward to reading the other books in the series.
