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.

While I had lukewarm feelings about the romance in Hell or High Water I was totally on board for the romance and couple in Devil and the Deep. I think I’ve put the finger on my issue with the first couple in a series. They don’t have the time to build up to their HEA, it can come off too instan-a-love for my taste. But with Maddy and Bran meeting in the first book and then having a long distance friend over the three months since the events in Hell or High Water I feel like their romance doesn’t have that instan-a-love feel to it. Devil and the Deep picks up about three months after Hell or High Water and the group of ex-Navy SEALS […]
