Very good book. Shannon had been sent to Nightshade Island to archive the late general's papers. She was immediately drawn in to helping foil an attack on the island by people looking for something the general had. Gideon had been asked by the general to protect his wife, and was serving as caretaker on the island. He didn't want Shannon there as he thought she was just someone else for him to have to protect. When it became obvious that she was an asset, they started to actually cooperate with ...more

The stories dealing with the Cooper family are amazing. They are all heroes ad heroines and willing to do whatever is necessary for home and for country. On the track of a covert group, each story takes them closer and closer to the ones behind the crimes and yet any of the stories can be read in any order and be understood and appreciated. They just keep getting better and better. In Secret Assignment, Shannon is the youngest in her immediate family and has been protected. She has now proven sh ...more

In Graves’ romantic suspense novel, Shannon Cooper was sent to Nightshade Island on a security mission, but soon finds she simply can’t accomplish her assignment without the help of one Gideon Stone. The former soldier is more than a caretaker, but powerful enough to ignite some serious feelings within her that goes far beyond desire. Former special ops, Gideon finds himself protecting Shannon from deadly mercenaries. As a storm builds, it mirrors the passion rising within him, and Gideon will d ...more

Shannon Cooper went to Nightshade Island to archive General Ross' papers. She had a feeling there was more to the mission then meet the eye. When masked Men try to invade the island she works with Gideon Stone to try to uncover what the men are after & to keep Mrs. Ross safe.

This was a GREAT book. It was a page turner that kept you reading to make sure everyone was safe & to find out what the masked men were after.

Paula Graves has a new avid Reader, I'm adding her to my MUST read list!

A very nice hero (one whole extra star is added here just for him), with a cool locale, but the series stuff and related spy mumbojumbo was total Greek to me, and crowded out any real romance. A pity, since I liked the few bits that weren't related to the over-arching conspiracy plot running through what must be 100 Cooper-family books by now (or just feels like it). Not recommended at all if you're not a fan of the series, as it flounders as a stand-alone work.

I was raised in Alabama, so I know we Southerners don't hide our crazy people—we showcase them. Eccentric people make for the best stories, and we Southerners do love our stories. The need to tell stories has been a driving force in my life from childhood.

As a girl, my favorite books were mysteries and romances. When I realized there were books that featured both romance and mystery, I knew I'd fo
