Publisher's Summary

He needs to keep the gorgeous competition out of his head...and his bed.

Former FBI agent Abe Royal believes in hard work, justice, and a suit for every occasion. He's hot on the trail of an elusive book thief when he realizes he's being followed...by a sultry, cunning stranger.

Ambitious, young detective Sloane Argento has just been handed the case of a lifetime. It's a challenge she's prepared to meet head-on. Until she finds herself in a sexy game of cat-and-mouse with the devastatingly handsome competition. Tempting the sinful devil hidden beneath his cool facade might just become as much a priority as capturing the criminal.

Abe's stoic restraint shows cracks every time Sloane gets too close. He needs distance, rules to protect himself. But when teaming up is the only way to race the ticking clock, he's left wondering just how long he can deny his attraction to this risky, red-hot distraction.

Contains mature themes.

Abe and Sloane

I think this one was my favorite of the series though they all had their unique story of intrigue. The Strong capable woman with a crappy childhood and the stoic workaholic with his own issues come together and learn to trust and solve a decade old case and bring a con artist and theif to justice. Bringing in the whole Codex team, made it work.The slow burn and sexual tension heightened the story so when they finally connected it was explosive and heart changing and life altering and they both got their well deserved HEA.

Loved Abe and Sloane

In the final book of the Codex series, Abe goes to London to hunt down the book their they have been looking for since the first book in this series and he meets Sloane who has been hired to find the same man. I loved the chemistry and tension between the Abe and Sloane as they worked together. When they bring in the the Codex team I love the family dynamic of the team and how they accept Sloane.

This book is narrated by John Masterson and Anastasia Watley. Both narrators were new to me and I enjoyed their performances and they way they brought Abe and Sloane to life. This was a great wrap up to the series and I will miss the Codex team.

Valiant Passion!


What a magnificent book this is! Once again Kathryn Nolan brings us a beautiful story full of passion, longing, secret rooms, mysterious clues, and bigger-than-life characters.
Abraham Royal is a man on vacation. Or is he? The sultry Sloane Argento thinks otherwise when they meet in London at a Sherlock Holmes event. Before you know it, Sloane and Abe are working together to bring down the criminal mastermind they’ve both been chasing. And what a wild chase it is! A completely unputdownable novel that will keep your heart racing in more ways than one!
John Masterson and Anastasia Watley's narration really bring this story to life!

Romantic Suspense at it’s Best!

Simply Extraordinary!!!
That’s the first thought that comes to mind after finishing this phenomenal book.
I have fallen in love with the Codex team since the very beginning and could not wait to read Abe’s story. The intrigue, deception, manipulation and clandestine activities of the International antiquities thieves. The secret societies, hiding in plain sight, behind a publicly recognized and celebrated successful persona of an expert in the very field they rob of priceless historical works of art.
The coming together of a team of experts to combat this corrupt upper echelon of society that considers themselves untouchable, bringing them to justice and recovering treasures of our past to preserve them for future generations.
The Codex series is the absolute best in romantic suspense, I could not put this book down and cheered for Abe and Sloane as they found a way to each other, overcoming their emotionally difficult younger years and upbringing, learning to trust and love and share in those feelings, so foreign to both of them.
The narration is phenomenal and brings the story alive around you - I felt like a part of the team!

“Come now, Mr. Royal. It’s a beautiful day to right the scales of justice.”

I loved Abraham’s and Sloane’s reluctant partnership and recognizing that together, and with the assistance of the entire Codex team, they’ll be unstoppable in achieving the ultimate goal of capturing the mastermind behind the rare books thefts - the puppeteer of the antiquities secret criminal underworld.
In the Clear is a dream come true for all romantic suspense enthusiasts - it’s a perfect mixture of love, drama, humor, swoon, steam and romance with intricate web of deception and mystery woven throughout the emotional fabric of this remarkable story.
A definite must read!!!!
