After Dark is the first book in the Ghost Hunters series. The book follows Lydia Smith, a para-archaeologist, who is feeling stressed out from a nasty incident at an alien tomb. She begins working part-time at a low-budget museum as she tries to get her career back on track. Then one day she finds a dead body in one of the exhibits at the museum. Making matters more complicated is her latest client is one of the most dangerous men in the city.

The Guinevere Jones series starts with The Desperate Game. Jones owns a small temp agency that she is struggling to keep afloat. As if money wasn’t tight enough, she is now being blackmailed. Security consultant Zac is the one doing it as he needs her help to solve a computer crime. However, as she works closely with him she finds herself growing closer to him as she finds herself caught in a web of suspense and danger.
