VANISHING LEGACY by Lynette Eason and Kate Angelo, (Elite Guardians Series), Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

"I was doing my homework at the table when I saw her crawl through the hole under our fence and run in there. She looked so scared . . . "

The last thing that Elite Guardian Alana Flores expected to find after a harrowing day on the job was danger in her own back yard. Not only did she discover where her son had disappeared to, but she literally collided with a man who had a young girl under his arm, whose flailing limbs and screaming cries put Alana in instantaneous protective mode. What in the world?

The last thing that trauma surgeon Dr. Cash Thomas expected to learn after a particularly rough rotation; that his daughter Penny had disappeared from an accident scene and was missing . . . his young autistic daughter for whom communication was a struggle. Thankfully she turned up in the back yard of a professional bodyguard? What in the world . . . times two.
Twisting and turning from beginning to end, this harrowing romantic suspense includes two delightfully dynamic duos; a son and a daughter, a father and a mother. How those relationships change is secondary to how they manage to stay alive. An enjoyable story by an emerging voice in romantic suspense who successfully pulls off an exhilarating finish! (plus some pretty romantic moments under a piano!)

" . . . when we are in the valleys, we don't usually notice the beauty all around us. We can only see the struggles . . . When we reach the top of the mountain, we get a different perspective. . . . . Sometimes we need the valley to appreciate the beauty of the mountains."

BackCover Blurb:
For this Elite Guardian, protecting her client’s daughter just got personal.

Elite Guardian Alana Flores, former LAPD underwater dive detective, just wants a fresh start in Savannah, Georgia, with her son, Rocco. Hoping to repair their broken relationship, and provide a safer, more stable life, nothing could be more disastrous to her hopes than when they find a terrified, autistic child in her shed.

Oh no.

Enter Cash Thomas, a widowed trauma surgeon struggling to raise his autistic daughter, Penny. He’s put his wife’s disappearance and presumed death behind him…until someone tries to kidnap his daughter. Terrified of losing Penny to the same cartel that supposedly killed his wife, he turns to Alana and the Elite Guardians.

But is Sonia really dead? Or is she behind the kidnapping attempts? Cash and Alana must keep their children safe, uncover the truth about Sonia, and find a way to outsmart the cartel before it's too late.

And what about the spark between them? Could this be the fresh start they both long for? Certainly not while their children are in danger. And when their worst fears happen, will they lose everything?

With heart-pounding foot chases on River Street, underwater thrills off Tybee Island, and a climactic showdown at Forsyth Fountain, Vanishing Legacy will leave you breathless.
