I’ve been on a Romantic Suspense kick this month (so many good ones out in February). Are you a fan of the genre?
In My Opinion
In her newest book, DiAnn Mills takes readers into a well-developed exploration of Saudi Arabian culture.
As CIA Operative Monica Alden joins FBI Agent Kord Davidson on protection detail for a Saudi prince and his family, she straddles the line of respecting the family’s expectations while doing the job she’s there to do. While her drive and desire to be in the thick of the investigation are strong, she does what she can to ease everyone’s unease at a woman in her position.
With the body count rising and continued assignation attempts, Monica and Kord must keep the headstrong prince from putting himself—or his family—in more danger.
A focused and intelligent team, Monica and Kord start off a little rocky but their respect and admiration for each other grow as they work together.
Plenty of action, a touch of romance, and a smidgen of levity made High Treason hard to put down until all the pieces of the puzzle fell into place for a satisfying (and heart pumping) conclusion.

About the Book
When Saudi Prince Omar bin Talal visits Houston to seek cancer treatment for his mother, an attempt on his life puts all agencies on high alert. FBI Special Agent Kord Davidson is the lead on the prince’s protective detail because of their long-standing friendship, but he’s surprised—and none too happy—when the CIA brings one of their operatives, Monica Alden, in on the task force after the assassination attempt.
Kord and Monica must quickly put aside interagency squabbles, however, when they learn the prince has additional motives for his visit—plans to promote stronger ties with the US and encourage economic growth and westernization in his own country. Plans that could easily incite a number of suspects both in the US and in countries hostile to Saudi Arabia. Worse yet, the would-be assassin always seems to be one step ahead of them, implicating someone close to the prince—or the investigation. But who would be willing to commit high treason, and can Kord and Monica stop them in time?
