Book 7 – Legacy of the Grand Master  

In Book 7, which picks up eight years after the end of Book 6, we see the coming of age of Tom and Emily Anderson’s daughter: Jamie.  She is a fierce athletic competitor, a loyal friend, an excellent student, and a beautiful young woman.  One day, her grandfather pulls her aside and tells her about her family’s greatest secret: the Order of the Saltier.  In so doing, he gives Jamie a challenge and a choice – to walk away from the Order and what it represents; or to follow her destiny, join the Order, and fulfill her grandfather’s legacy.  Upon finishing college, Jamie accepts her grandfather’s challenge and joins the Order.  Her first mission starts as a simple car jacking ring, but her team quickly discovers that car jacking is just a front for an international smuggling and counterfeiting operation.  Jamie and another member of her team, a tall, handsome stranger from across the country, find themselves in the middle of a web of intrigue, murder, corruption, and a plot aimed at the nation’s economic stability.  As they race toward the final confrontation between the Order and those behind the plot, Jamie is faced with having to choose between her destiny and her heart, and that choice will determine the fate of her grandfather’s legacy.
