New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Liliana Hart’s first book in her suspenseful Gravediggers series, featuring 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...

Deacon Tucker is a dead man walking. A former black ops agent, he was disavowed and stripped of all honor before being recruited as a Gravedigger. But his honor and good name no longer matter, because no one knows he’s alive, and he’ll never get the recognition he deserves. His mission is simple: save the world or die trying. And for God’s sake, don’t ever fall in love. That’s a rule punishable by death. The kind of death a man can’t be brought back from.

Tess Sherman is the only mortician in Last Stop, Texas. She has no idea how Deacon Tucker ended up in her funeral home, but she’ll eat her hat if he’s only a funeral home assistant. Deacon is dangerous, deadly, and gorgeous. And she knows her attraction to him can only end in heartache.

Deacon is on a mission to stop the most fatal terror attack the world has ever known—what’s known as The Day of Destiny—a terrorist’s dream. But when he discovers Tess has skills he can use to stop them, he has to decide if he can trust her with secrets worth dying for. And, most important, he has to decide if he can trust her with his heart.

Tess thought she would live out her life in Last Stop, Texas as a mortician caring for the bodies of locals and trying to keep her mother out of trouble. When Eve Winter buys out the funeral home Tess had  hoped would one day be her own and employs some very buff and gorgeous men Tess gets more than she bargained for.

Deacon Tucker is the leader of an elite secret military team known as the Grave Diggers. They are just one part of an expansive team put together  to weed out and stop terrorist attacks. Deacon thought his life would be spent alone, dead to the world until he met Tess Sherman. For years Deacon has had his eye on Tess but she was always just out of reach. A relationship seemed impossible until one day his boss ordered him to seduce and use Tess for her knowledge of Russian Mafiya. The order was just the excuse Deacon needed to pursue his own interest in Tess.

The Darkest Corner was my first read by Liliana Hart. I enjoyed the story of a mortician whose life is unknowingly invaded and turned upside down by a secret military operation. I love the mix of romance and action. I look forward to reading the rest of the series when they come out.

I give The Darkest Corner 4 stars and would pair it with a Blind Russian
