When ex-hacker turned computer security expert Naomi Connor accepts the assignment to attack Brennan Shipping Industries’ classified computer networks, she puts her future on the line to pay for her past. She doesn’t realize returning to the scene of her adolescent crime means she’ll put her heart on the line, too.

When Joe Casey hires a team of expert “hackers” to test his networks, he doesn’t realize the team leader will be brainy and beautiful. Half blonde bombshell and half loose cannon, Naomi not only wreaks havoc on Joe’s company; she causes collateral damage to his heart every time they meet.

When Naomi finds a vulnerability in his network, she and Joe race against the clock to stop real hackers from stealing secrets - until Joe learns Naomi was the criminal whiz-kid who attacked the company twenty years ago exactly the same way. Now, Joe assumes Naomi is reliving her past rather than redeeming her future; Naomi knows finding the real hacker is the only way to salvage her fate.
Signet Eclipse ~ May 2006
Romance writer Miranda Lane is famous for her sensitive heroes, but her new editor wants something different: a tough cop who's sexy as Hell and twice as hot. But cops leave Miranda cold—until she encounters Stamford detective Chas Casey. Arrestingly handsome, this Connecticut Yankee packs the kind of heat Miranda needs.

Intrigued by this sexy, sharp-tongued writer who's full of fire one minute and cool as a breeze the next, Chas tolerates Miranda's off-beat research tactics with one goal in mind: seduction.

Chas is the perfect research subject - until he steals Miranda's heart. A specialist in drive-by romance, Chas doesn't do commitment. But Miranda doesn't do casual, so she ends their affair, underestimating the steep, unexpected cost of that plot twist in her life story.

When his involvement in her research costs Chas a coveted promotion, a shaken Miranda writes her way back into his heart knowing their love story will never end.

Carter Thompson, an unassuming yet clearly disturbed billionaire with revenge on his mind, murder in his heart, and absolutely nothing on his conscience, chooses weather manipulation as his weapon of revenge when carrying out a political vendetta.  He creates Hurricane Simone, which at a Category 7 is the biggest storm in recorded history. Thompson steers her toward New York City, and when she hits skyscrapers will fall, subways and tunnels will flood, and most of the city will disappear under thirty feet of water.

It’s up to meteorologist Kate Sherman and CIA weatherman Jake Baxter to try to stop Simone using a secret U.S. Navy weapon.

The only catch is that it must be deployed inside the hurricane.

- Bill Cosby

- Publishers Weekly

"Some of it felt so real that it was scary. Dry Ice is an action-packed novel that will have you shaking in between chapters."
- Goodreads

"Dry Ice separates itself from the pack by being especially extreme genre fiction, willing to push the genre to the limit .[and] is fascinating precisely because it is so intense .an individual voice separate from the all too generic world of genre fiction."
- Washington Square News

"Bad weather has never been this good!"
- Sam Champion, ABC-TV Weather Editor
"Evans and Jameson follow their bestselling debut, Category 7, about an evil scientist and his man-made hurricanes, with an eco-thriller with an even more imaginative premise...  Readers will race right along with Dr. Sam Briscoe, a methane specialist, and the novel's other good guys as they feverishly strive to save the world."
- Publishers Weekly

"The science makes sense, the gore factor is off the chart, and the villains are high-end despicable, so count on this one for a no-calorie summer snack-perfect for lazing on the beach or passing time in the airport."
- Booklist
Bill Evans and Marianna Jameson first teamed up to write Category 7, vividly portraying the devastating impact of a powerful hurricane on New York City.  Now Evans and Jameson return with Frozen Fire, another edge-of-the-seat thriller that mixes atmospheric science with cutting-edge technology. 

Eager to exploit a potentially lucrative energy source, billionaire Dennis Cavendish has begun to tap the crystalline methane under the floor of the Atlantic Ocean.  Eco-terrorism kills his science team and releases gigatons of poisonous methane into the water and atmosphere, causing untold deaths.  If the release isn't stopped, all life on Earth will soon disappear. 

Suspected of the sabotage and marooned far from home, Cavendish's beautiful and brainy security chief, Victoria Clark, along with methane expert Dr. Sam Briscoe and the US government, must find a way to seal the break in the ocean floor and nullify the methane that is already poisoning the planet.  
“A superb thriller of a disaster untold until now.”
- Clive Cussler, New York Times bestselling author

“Just sit back and let the action wash over you.  A fast-paced action-adventure that promises a rousing finale and delivers it.”
- Booklist

“Take a healthy dose of the paranoid scenarios from 24 and governmental intrigues from The West Wing, then spike them liberally with the atmospheric minutiae that armchair meteorologists know and love.  What emerges might be strikingly similar to this clever debut.  Fast-paced storytelling... a satisfying thriller about fooling with Mother Nature.”
- Kirkus Reviews

“What would happen if a massive super-storm hit New York City? And what if the storm's ferocity were enhanced by human activity? This is the premise of this debut thriller.”
- Library Journal
