The final installment of Zeth& Sloane's story is here!

With Lacey missing and everything falling apart, Sloane and Zeth will do everything they can to get her back. If that includes facing off against Charlie Holsan, the DEA, and anyone else who gets in their way, then so be it.

Faced with heartbreak, danger, and the increasing need to protect the ones he loves, Zeth Mayfair is finally realizing what it means to have a family. With her fears coming full circle, Sloane must learn that forgiveness is the only way to move forward.

Review of book:

All too often you find that the final installment in a series will go out with a whimper rather than the bang the author intends.  Have no fear, Collateral, the sixth, and final book in the wildly popular Blood and Roses series not only delivers on the proverbial literary bang, but it leaves you incredibly sad that its all coming to an end.Callie Hart has proven time, and time again that shes got what it takes to craft plots fraught with innuendos, twists, and enough heart in your mouth moments that youll be frantically turning pages, hungry for the next emotionally charged exchange.

Zeth and Sloane are the perfectly imperfect couple; from distinctly opposite sides of the tracks, but well matched in inner strength and sexiness.  One has what the other craves even when theyre not even aware they need it.  Ive loved watching the two of them grow and evolve over the course of the series, but the peril and personal issues both have to overcome in Collateral, make this my favorite of the books.  I felt my heart break for them at times and rejoice in others, my blood pressure skyrocketing with each threat they faced.

Its no surprise that Callie Hart has another winner with Collateral, and I double dog dare you to read it and not be unaffected by her smartly crafted plot and gritty, realistic characters.
