New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Liliana Hart’s second book in her sexy, suspenseful Gravediggers series, GONE TO DUST, features 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…



Miller Darling is one of the most popular romance novelists of her time. Not bad for a woman who doesn’t believe in romance. She’s as logical as they come, and she doesn’t believe in happily-ever-afters. What she does believe in is family, so when her brother disappears, she doesn’t think twice about packing her bag and her laptop and heading out to find him.



Elias Cole lived and breathed the live of a Navy SEAL. Now he’s “dead” and his hero’s honor tarnished. The only thing keeping him sane are the men who are like him—The Gravediggers—and the woman who makes his head spin. He’s never met anyone like Miller Darling. Her smart mouth and quick wit keep him on his toes, and damned if he doesn’t find that appealing.



When Miller receives a package from the brother who abandoned her asking for help, it’s clear she’s in over her head with the mess he’s gotten himself into. She needs a professional, and Elias is just the man for the job. Only her brother is a former SEAL—the man who left his team to die—and Elias is more interested in vengeance than saving his life.


My Thoughts:
Gone to Dust was an adventure, and hot romance all wrapped into one thrilling story!  Sort of Romancing the Stone meets Mission Impossible except instead of a treasure hunting scoundrel for the hero we have Elias Cole, an ex-SEAL and complete sweetheart! 

Miller Darling is a romance novelist immersed in writing the last bits of her latest novel for her fast approaching deadline; surviving on coffee, junk food, and the occasional shower.  Miller wakes the heck up when she receives a very disturbing package in the mail demanding her presence in a foreign country or else her brother, Justin, dies.

Miller is shocked and fearful, but not altogether unsurprised at the trouble her brother has gotten into.  Her parents were obsessive in their search for the treasures of King Solomon, and that fanatic type drive led to their deaths twenty years earlier.  After their deaths, Justin took up the searches and left Miller behind in Last Stop, Texas.  If it weren’t for Tess, her best friend, Miller would’ve felt very alone in the world.  Well, alone except for the annoying Elias Cole; a man who worked her up and left her wanting.  He’s part of Tess’s mortuary crew, although if Miller thinks hard about the situation it really doesn’t make sense for all these military-type hotties to be working for the funereal home since Last Stop is a dinky town.

Miller is in need of some help, and she’s about to get it along with some answers about those sexy “gravediggers”. 

I enjoyed Gone to Dust so much! More than The Darkest Corner.  Like I said, it was a fun adventure; action, beautiful settings, a gorgeous high tech yacht, and a strong capable alpha male like Elias to share it with.  Miller is no slouch in the equation as far as characters go. She’s a romance writer, who may not have experienced the world first hand, but she’s researched the heck out of situations, and Miller’s imagination is rich with possibility, and useful information.  Readers will definitely appreciate her occupation!  The story was exciting, fun, with loveable characters and a smoking hot romance!  I had a lot of fun with this fast, action packed ride!

Praise for Gone to Dust, Book 2:
“Lucky fans of the super-talented Hart don’t have to wait long for the second installment of her new romantic suspense series Gravediggers, as the installments are being released back to back. In the first book, Hart set up her world where five men, declared dead to the world at large, work for a super-secret anti-terrorism force. Hart’s new heroine is a very talented romance writer who takes no crap from anyone — even secret commandos. Miller and Elias are both funny and sexy together, which helps make this book nonstop entertainment, with plenty of witty bantering and thrilling adventure!”

  8. Nice cover! And I love the idea of the Gravediggers- ex- commandos who are dead to the world but work to save it. How fun. The King Solomon bit caught my eye too, sounds like her brother might be involved in ancient treasure hunting maybe? I love stories like that. :)
