Summary Excerpt Comments

Gabriela Martinez has a problem to solve:  she strongly suspects that her mentor and friend wants her as his mistress, her husband is increasingly neglecting her, and her latest illustration has been ruined.  But while going to her favorite thinking spot in La Marbriére, the mountain overlooking her home in the Côte d'Azur, Gabriela makes a wrong turn and finds herself lost.  There, in a clearing cocooned in emerald forest and towering cliffs, she finds a beautiful coin, half-buried in dirt.  She is delighted with her discovery; but what Gabriela doesn't know is that an unknown xenophobic terrorist has been using similar coins and will do anything to keep that a secret.

When intelligence sources discover the coin's resurfacing, an unwilling American intelligence officer, Richard Harrison, must uncover what Gabriela knows about the coin.  Together with Maurice Nôret, Harrison's counterpart in French intelligence, Richard attempts to bring to light the madman's identity while protecting Gabriela.  But as the psychological games to terrorize Gabriela into silence grow more lethal, Richard's budding love for this woman becomes a dangerous handicap to them both.

Set in the exotic region of the French Riviera, The Coin is a romantic suspense.  It is a story of unfounded hatred, betrayal, love, and duty—of terrible and painful choices that, nonetheless, bring about personal triumph.
