Hunters & Seekers Book 1
by Joanne Jaytanie
Genre: Romantic Suspense, Action, Adventure
“A sprightly plotted thriller and dynamic characters should leave readers eager for the sequel.”
The world could be transformed if Riley can only stay alive long enough.
Most parents leave you a house, a car, or money when they die. Riley’s mom left her a treasure hunt with a mysterious payoff. Now everyone seems to want a piece of Riley and her inheritance: the university, the military, mega corporations, and Russian spies.
Riley needs help to solve her mother’s murder, and Dagger Easton’s salvage and investigation company comes to her rescue. Retired SEAL, private eye, and leader of a diving and salvage team, Dagger promises to protect Riley with his life. But as the value of her mother’s research becomes clear, Riley begins to believe there’s no one she can trust–not with her life, her heart, or her mother’s legacy.
Joanne was born and raised in Sherburne, New York, a quaint village surrounded by dairy farms and rolling hills. From the moment she could read she wanted to explore the world. During her college years, she slowly crept across the country, stopping along the way in Oklahoma, California, and finally Washington State, which she now proudly calls home. She lives with her husband and Dobermans, in their home located on the Olympic Peninsula with a panoramic view of the Olympic Mountains.
Joanne writes romantic suspense, paranormal, mystery-thriller, supernatural suspense, and contemporary romance. She loves to submerge herself in the world of her characters, to live and breathe their lives and marvel at their decisions and predicaments. She enjoys a wide variety of books including paranormal, suspense, thriller, and of course romance.
Joanne is a PAN member of Romance Writers of America, (RWA), Kiss of Death, (KOD), Greater Seattle Romance Writers Chapter, (GSRWA), Sisters In Crime (SIC), and Fantasy, Futuristic & Paranormal, (FFPRWA). She served as President of Peninsula Romance Writers, which was Debbie Macomber’s home chapter.

Thank you so much for hosting, Salvaging Truth. I appreciate your support.
Hi! Welcome to the Dragon’s Den! Do you have a favorite quote you’d like to share?
I have a few favorites in this book. Here are 2 between Riley and Dagger that came to me.
“Wait one second. My brain isn’t that scrambled. I believe you both insulted and complimented me. Thank you—I think.”
Her warm laugh made him grin. “Okay, champ. Let me help you inside and you can show me where to put my stuff.”
The doctor chuckled and shook his head. “Mind if I ask how long have the two of you’ve been dating?”
Riley’s previously pale face flushed bright pink.
“Oh, we’re not—dating. Riley’s a client.”
“Is that what they’re calling it these days?” The doctor chortled. His gaze jumped from Riley to Dagger.
Sassy – I like it. Those are great quotes. What sparked your inspiration for this book?
I needed to write something different from Winters Sisters, because I originally pitched my story to some editors and agents. I had a lot of interest but ultimately decided to stay on my indie path. I have many family members in and retired from the military. My husband is retired Navy, step-son, BIL, and FIL. My step-daughter retired from active duty (so they claim) from the Coast Guard and is now in reserves. Her current station is USNORTHCOM. So I have great resources. My husband was a Navy salvage diver and I’ve always been fascinated with it. This storyline fits my writing, which tends to be fast-paced. Here’s a link to my own blog, where I give more explanation. Thanks Eileen! https://originalitybydesign.blogspot.com/2019/06/there-is-reality-woven-within-pages-by.html
It does sound like you had a lot of resources for your book. I find the history of the Navy salvage divers fascinating. Good luck with the book and the tour!
