Book Description

Body of Evidence, the 2nd book in Grant's Evidence Series, is now available in Crimes of Passion: 6 Romantic Suspense Books (A Crimes of the Heart Collection) a limited edition bundle on sale for $0.99! ASIN: B00L5VM8IK

"Full of secrets, deadly intrigue and steamy romance. A MUST read." - Elisabeth Naughton, New York Times Bestselling Author

A year ago she lost everything.  Now she wants revenge...

Accused of stealing artifacts from a five-hundred-year-old shipwreck, underwater archaeologist Erica Kesling is determined to clear her name. She's concealed her past and taken a job certain to give her access to the buyer of the missing antiquities. She's finally closing in on her goal when she's distracted by a sexy, charismatic intern who makes her want something other than revenge. 

But Lee Scott is no intern. He's looking for the lead conspirator in an international artifact smuggling scheme, and Erica is his prime suspect.  He'll do whatever it takes to win her trust and get her to reveal her secrets, even seduce her. 

As Erica and Lee struggle to conceal their real agendas, the one thing they can't hide is the attraction that burns hot between them. When Erica's quest puts her life in jeopardy, Lee must choose between old loyalties and a woman he never expected to fall for.

Editorial Reviews


"If you love to immerse yourself in highly detailed and original suspense romances, then I highly recommend Concrete Evidence. Rachel Grant scores a hit with her debut novel by culling from her experience as an archeologist and crafting a first-class suspense story with an interesting amount of romantic tension." - AudioGals

"...if you want something with very steamy sex scenes, and a plot that will keep you on the edge of your seat, Concrete Evidence will be quite enjoyable." - All About Romance

"This is how you write a debut book. The authors' knowledge of archaeology, historic art and Native American sites was evident through the book. The story which starts off in 1952 is like one large jigsaw puzzle that takes the course of the book to piece together before finally seeing the whole picture." - SnS (Sugar and Spice) Reviews

"I can't recommend Concrete Evidence enough if you are looking for an action packed, well plotted, steamy, sexy romantic suspense story." - J. Legacy

5.0 out of 5 stars This is how you write a debut book April 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The authors' knowledge of archaeology, historic art and Native American sites was evident through the book. The story which starts off in 1952 is like one large jigsaw puzzle that takes the course of the book to piece together before finally seeing the whole picture.

Erica Kesling didn't have an easy childhood after her father died. Her credit ruined and blackballed from being able to use her degree in underwater archaeologist she now works for a large company on a different coast as a land archeologist looking for a way to make those pay who had a part in setting her up. From here the author takes us on a journey that arouses your curiosity as to what is really going on. Its full of crafty plotting and intrigues throughout.

There were a few loose ends that I am hoping will be wrapped up in future books but this reader is happy to have found a new romantic suspense author and I look forward to more books from her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Concrete Evidence is a Heavy Hitter April 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
From the opening scene the thrills and chills drew me in. I love the smart, sexy heroine, Erica. As for the hero, Lee, all I can say is I'm a sucker for brainiacs with pecs. The secret life of archeologists is deftly woven into the plot, and a look at this fascinating world is a treat you won't find in many books. I can honestly say I did NOT see the twists and turns coming, and they kept me reading late into the night. This is one of the best romantic thrillers I've read...ever. Grant's plot is tightly woven, unpredictable and stands with the best. I admit that I love intellectual thrillers and this is one of them!

5.0 out of 5 stars Archeology, Romance and Suspense...Need I Say More? April 16, 2013
High stakes, fast paced and the kind of in-depth knowledge of ancient artifacts only an honest-to-goodness archeologist would know. I was amazed to learn that Grant's most unique subplots are actually ripped right from history. The romance between Erica and Lee has that gripping, heart-in-your throat tension. Both are motivated by goals that may destroy the other, which keeps you reading FAR into the night! This is a stellar introduction to a very talented debut author. Highly recommended read.

I never write reviews, but I loved this book so much, I had to. This is the first book I've read from this author, and as soon as I finished it I downloaded her other book. I highly recommend both.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh new voice in Romantic Suspense April 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A first rate romantic suspense debut that combines pulse pounding action with...pulse pounding romance! Erica and Lee are great together, and I especially liked the depth that Erica's background in archaeology added to the story. Can't say too much about Lee because I don't want to risk spoilers, but suffice it to say he's whipsmart and way sexy. I'd say this would work best for readers of Roxanne St. Claire (in her romantic suspense days) and Elisabeth Naughton.

In the interest of full disclosure, Rachel and I blog together on Kiss and Thrill, but I would have enjoyed the book no matter who wrote it. In fact, I'm sorry I know her because it makes me kind of hate her for being such a kick ass writer. Darn her and her mad writing skillz.

3.0 out of 5 stars Liked other books from author better... September 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book after reading Body of Evidence and Grave Danger. I really enjoyed the other two books more. Lee (stepson of a US Senator pretending to be an intern interested in archaeology) and Erica (a underwater archaeologist) are the two lead characters. Erica spends must of the book not trusting anyone (including Lee). Lee spends practically the whole book pretending to be a lowly intern. I didn't find myself routing for the couple. I like this author and I think this is the author's first book. Definitely give the other two books a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Concrete Stars! April 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Concrete Evidence is top-notch romantic suspense. It had everything I crave and love about the genre. Betrayal, deception, a great detailed non-stop action story and lots of sexy flirting and sexual tension.

Erica and Lee based on their incorrect perception and knowledge about each other know their relationship is trouble but they so can't help the attraction they feel towards each other. They are super hot together.

Erica Kesling thinks Lee Scott is a spoiled, lazy, younger that her at 25 intern who only seems intent on really applying himself to his latest game of Tetris. Boy is she wrong. In reality Lee is secretly working undercover at Drake and Talon, hired by his step-brother JT Talon to discover who is involved in smuggling antiques into the Country using the company as a cover. I adore the working undercover, you have no idea who I really am troupe. I eagerly turn the pages in anticipation for the fallout when all is revealed. I was not disappointed.

You can really tell Rachel Grant knows her stuff. Concrete Evidence had a very interesting storyline that set the stage for a rich, well developed story with so many twists and turns.

I loved Erica. This poor girl had been through the wringer and yet she was totally dedicated to her job, trying to get herself out of financial ruin thanks to her dear Mama and wanted desperately to clear her professional name.

Lee was sent into Drake and Talon to solve a crime and find a crook and number one on his suspect list was his tantalizing boss Erica. But the more time Lee spent in close quarters with Erica he began to have serious doubts that Erica was the culprit he was looking for.
