About the book:

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.

I received Gone to Dust in return for an honest review from the publisher. 

Miller's is a popular romance writer currently hard at work on her most recent novel which she needs to finish in the next week to meet her deadline. When pulled from her writing groove by the UPS delivery guy she heads off to visit her best friend Tess which just happens to be what she needed. However, it's while they are in her house that the house was attacked forcing the Gravediggers to swing into action and save the day but not without revealing who they are. 

Miller learns that her brother has been taken hostage by a very dangerous cartel and the only way to get him back is to travel to Guatemala. Eve won't let the Gravediggers roll into town and take out the cartel but thanks to Elias's vacation time he and Miller to hopefully make it in and out with her brother alive. With the help of her own bad-ass SEAL who's better than John Cena can they survive an action-packed adventure like her books? 

I like Miller a lot she's smart, but it's the movie references she uses so much that sealed the deal. Elias has issues, it's to be expected after having to fake his death and join the Gravediggers but he's is just biding his time till he can take out Eve. He doesn't want to fall for Miller even though he's been having feelings for her since he first met her. They just work well together, it's steamy but it's always snarky which I liked plus so many movie references. 

I just finished The Darkest Corner and had to read Gone to Dust knowing it's Miller's story. We are given a little taste of her in the first book but the second one is all about her and finding a happy ever after with her own Gravedigger. Gone to Dust may just be my new all-time favorite book ever because it reminds me of my favorite movie Romancing the Stone. It even starts off just like the movie with a scene from the author's book, a rescue trip to South America to save her brother, an action-packed treasure hunt and a much deserved happy ever after. I truly loved every moment of Gone to Dust It's beautifully written with amazing characters and a captivating story. I know this book will be on my re-read list in the future. I highly recommend checking it out if you love an action packed romance.

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!”

“Modern Cliterature...Enjoy [this] lusty [passage] adapted from summer’s raciest reads…”
Cosmopolitan, July 2017

Praise for The Darkest Corner, Book 1:
“Gritty, deadly, and peppered with unexpected humor, this supersexy, adrenaline-charged story will keep readers on edge and breathless until the last page.”
—Library Journal

“Liliana Hart sets up a fascinating and intriguing premise of individual men forced into taking extreme steps. Her heroine’s reluctant immersion into this world allows readers to discover the treachery and danger looming all around…a thrilling series!”

“A cool blend of entertaining antics and suspenseful moments, with a slightly morbid sense of humor thrown in for good measure. (Our heroine was a mortician, after all!) I had a blast getting to know this cast of characters and can’t wait to see what exciting things Liliana Hart has in store for us next.”
—Harlequin Junkie
