In a world on the brink...

Six men. One sunken Spanish galleon. Millions in gold and silver coins lying on the ocean floor. And a past that refuses to let the guys of Deep Six Salvage forget the Navy SEAL motto: the only easy day was yesterday...

There's more than one kind of treasure...

The nation's security has always been CIA agent Olivia Mortier's top priority. But a mission-gone-wrong has begun to make her wonder if there's more to life than risking hers.

And more than one secret at the bottom of the sea...

Only two things could make Leo Anderson abandon his hunt for the legendary lost ship, La Santa Christina, and return to the world of weapons and warfare he swore to leave behind: a capsule of enriched uranium, lost on the ocean floor, and a plea for assistance from the one woman he can't seem to forget...

Hell or High Water is a solid start to Julie Ann Walker’s Deep Six series about a group of ex-military buddies seeking their fortune looking for sunken treasures. After they promised one of their own that they would get out of the Navy and live a real life, the guys have been making the most of their new status as civilians. They may have left the dangerous life of a soldier but they find a new danger out on the open seas. Not to mention the sexy and dangerous women they meet along the way.

Hell or High Water hit all the right buttons for a romantic suspense novel: danger, sexy and great humor. I’m jumping in with both feet into next novel, Devil and the Deep.

I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two chilled cats in the Deep South.

After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.

While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).

  1. I love romantic suspense. I read book 2, Devil and the Deep but didn’t care for the characters at all. Maybe I will give this one a go!

  2. If the action and steaminess between the H and h then I know this series will be a must read. Great review despite it’s shortness 🙂
