The Darkest Corner

Gravediggers Book 1

Liliana Hart is torturing me with the first series book in her new series. I loved this book so much I'm having withdrawals and now I have to wait to read the next book! Tess Sherman isn't what most would typically picture as a heroine after all she's a small town mortician, not something that usually falls in to the sexy category. but Tess's understated beauty and the kindness of her nature makes her more than acceptable as a fabulous match for the gorgeous military man she fantasizes about. Deacon Tucker is a mystery made for uncovering. I loved his reactions to Tess. The fact that he was so steadfast in his feelings of responsibility for his brothers and their missions just melted my heart, because this is a true hero. The Gravediggers are an astounding group of characters and I cannot wait to read more about each and every member of the organization. This is more than a love story, more than a mystery, it is an entire world created with such vivid imagination and inhabited by such lively characters that I just can't wait to go back. From the very first words I was drawn in to the story and I not only want to know what happens, I need to know. This is the kind of well written book that had me laughing, muttering, mumbling and sighing and I cannot wait to see where the next adventure takes me. Please pick up this story, you won't regret it!

Book Blurb for The Darkest Corner

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Liliana Hart’s first book in her suspenseful Gravediggers series, featuring an elite group of mysterious men who might be dead to the world, but are also tasked with saving it—and no one can ever know.

The Gravediggers aren’t exactly what they seem. They’re the most elite of the world’s fighting forces—and all they have in common is that they’ve been betrayed by the countries they’ve died for. Because they are dead. To their country, their military, and their families.

Sometimes the dead do rise...

Deacon Tucker is a dead man walking. A former black ops agent, he was disavowed and stripped of all honor before being recruited as a Gravedigger. But his honor and good name no longer matter, because no one knows he’s alive, and he’ll never get the recognition he deserves. His mission is simple: save the world or die trying. And for God’s sake, don’t ever fall in love. That’s a rule punishable by death. The kind of death a man can’t be brought back from.

Tess Sherman is the only mortician in Last Stop, Texas. She has no idea how Deacon Tucker ended up in her funeral home, but she’ll eat her hat if he’s only a funeral home assistant. Deacon is dangerous, deadly, and gorgeous. And she knows her attraction to him can only end in heartache.

Deacon is on a mission to stop the most fatal terror attack the world has ever known—what’s known as The Day of Destiny—a terrorist’s dream. But when he discovers Tess has skills he can use to stop them, he has to decide if he can trust her with secrets worth dying for. And, most important, he has to decide if he can trust her with his heart.
