Romantic Suspense/Domestic Thrillers/Political Thrillers & Suspense


A deadly serious affair…

The story breaks as Metro PD lieutenant Sam Holland attends a dinner party with her husband, Vice President Nick Cappuano: President Nelson is accused of having an affair. More shocking still, campaign staffer Tara Weber claims the president fathered her newborn son—while the First Lady was undergoing secret cancer treatment.

When a high-profile murder case hits Sam’s desk, she’s shocked to uncover a connection to the presidential scandal. With the department caught up in its own internal scandals, and the chief’s job hanging by a thread, Sam questions who she can trust as her team uncovers information that clouds an already-murky case. And with calls for the president to resign getting louder by the minute, Sam needs to close this case before she finds herself living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue…



In Fatal Accusation, Sam and Nick truly shine as a couple. They handle the strain of each other’s’ jobs together; Nick as Vice President of the United States, and Sam as the Homicide Lieutenant of the DC police department, always having each other’s back. They are a poster couple for successful married couples. They are each other’s best friends and are steamy hot together. They get better with each book. Nick – who would not want him as a husband? He’s perfect, the whole package. Always there for Sam and totally supportive but also just important in his own right. There is also a wonderful chemistry and humorous banter between Sam and Freddie, her partner. Sam is hysterical in her dealings with people who block her way to justice for victims. She takes no crap but dishes it out. There are a quite a few characters in this series, but you’re not overwhelmed with them. They all are well developed and woven throughout the storylines.

Fatal Series is my all-time favorite series with an awesome couple that star in each book. The series is consistently thrilling to read and always leaves me satisfied.

NOTE: This is a continuing series that should be read in order. The storylines of each book are built on throughout the series. Start at the beginning, Fatal Affair.
