Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Star-crossed strangers uncover old passions in the shadows of hauntingly beautiful Draycott Abbey.

Archeologist Kelly Hamilton follows a trail of secrets to England, tracking a priceless thousand-year-old sword. But the abbey’s beauty hides old dangers, and it will take all Kelly’s courage and her gift of second sight to stay alive.

Rugged ex-Royal Marine Michael Burke wants Kelly gone before sunrise, and will brook no refusal. But Burke is overruled, and in the nights that follow, Kelly’s visions tell her this man is no stranger.

She has known him long before.

As his ardent lover…

Soon the two are pulled under the spell of the moonlit abbey, caught in a sensuous net of white-hot desire.

And all the while an old and dangerous enemy waits to strike.

While this is a new box set and doesn’t have many reviews, please note each individual title is highly raked above the 4.0 threshold: my high school daughter and her friends have read each of these books and are always waiting for the next Cidney Swanson book to come out (much to the detriment of their homework completion when it does)!

Book One: Rippler
When Samantha Ruiz turns invisible in front of team mates while rafting, she knows something’s wrong. According to her knowledgeable friend Will, she’s got a rare genetic disorder. Fearing a lifetime sentence as a lab-rat, Sam wants to keep her ability secret. But she also wants to know if there’s a connection between dark Nazi experiments on others like her and her own mother’s death eight years earlier. At the same time that Sam is sleuthing, she’s falling hard for Will. And soon, she’ll have to choose between keeping her secrets hidden and keeping Will safe.

Book Two: Chameleon
Sam’s troubles are growing. The crush who kissed her seems to have changed his mind. Her BFF thinks Sam is in an abusive relationship. And the evil geneticist who wanted Sam dead now wants her ALIVE. When Sam learns of Helmann’s Nazi-like plan to re-establish a Thousand-Year Reign, she’s determined to fight him. Along with Will and Mickie, Sam flees to France to meet Sir Walter–their best hope for stopping Helmann’s brave new world. But someone invisible follows her to Paris, and now Sam must figure out how to hide from an enemy she can’t even see.

Book Three: Unfurl
Against all expectations, Sam has survived attacks by two of Helmann’s deadliest assassins. She’s alive, but she’s far from safe. Helmann is planning a second Holocaust and wants Sam to play a starring role. Will, now separated from Sam by an ocean, seeks a way to prevent Helmann’s apocalypse. Along with Sir Walter and Mickie, Will plays a deadly game sneaking into Geneses’ facilities, discovering unsettling clues as to Helmann’s plans. The clock ticks down as Will and Sam discover just how much they must be willing to sacrifice to stop Helmann. UNFURL, the powerful conclusion to The Ripple Series, will leave fans breathless.
