The Coin Series Box Set

The Coin Series Box Set
by Maria Elena Alonso-Sierra
Genre: Romantic Thriller

The thrilling, complete story of Gabriela Martinez and Richard Harrison,

as they try to keep one step ahead from madmen who are trying to kill them.

THE COIN (Book One)

A coin found, a terrible secret, and a psychopath who will stop at

nothing to keep that secret safe.

When Gabriela Martinez finds a French coin on one of her outings, she

never thought the possession of it could get her killed. Only Richard

Harrison, the intelligence operative sent to protect her, can save

her from this madman, who will do everything to silence Gabriela. And

when the psychological games to terrorize Gabriela escalate, Richard

must find a solution, or it may be too late for both their lives and

their love.

Set in the exotic French Riviera, The Coin is a story of hatred,

betrayal, love and duty–terrible and painful choices that,

nonetheless, bring about personal triumph.



– For Gabriela Martinez, psychopaths do hit twice.

Four years ago, when Gabriela Martinez almost lost her life to a

sociopath’s twisted vision, she never thought she’d be hunted again.

After catching a glimpse of Gabriela’s new work, The Book of Hours, Arnold

Wickeham has been like a man possessed. Now, he will do anything to

claim it, and no one, especially not Gabriela, will stand in his way.

Now that her life is being threatened once more, Richard Harrison will

risk everything, not only to protect her, but especially to get her

back in his life. However, the stakes are higher this time around and

there is much more to lose. Together, Gabriela and Richard must find

a way to stay one step ahead of the danger, if not, Gabriela’s life,

but especially their future together, may very well go up in flames.

Set in California and in London, The Book of Hours is a story about

greed, dangerous obsession, family duty, and, especially deserved

second chances.

“The Coin is a suspenseful, sexy, romantic thriller…a page-turner —

Kirkus Reviews”

“Dare I say that The Book of Hours may have been better than The Coin?

Along with the action, suspense, romance, and murder attempts, who

wouldn’t enjoy this book? – Books, Reviews, Links, and a Little Extra”

Maria Elena Alonso-Sierra is a romantic suspense author with a unique point

of view. Her adventure novels take place in locales across Europe and

the United States, reflecting her international upbringing and

extensive time as a global traveler. In her duology, The Coin and The

Book of Hours, her characters, Gabriela and Richard, walk the same

paths as their creator, though her life was never in so much danger.

Her short story collection, The Fish Tank: And Other Short Stories, is an

imaginative ride through various genres. One section in particular,

“Soul Songs”, delves into the gut-wrenching experience of exile

with Ms. Alonso-Sierra’s fictionalized Cuban Diaspora stories,

based on her own experience of exile.

The author’s short story, “Retribution Served”, is featured in the

anthology Book Dreams: Volume 1, and has been well received by


Ms. Alonso-Sierra’s writing career began circa age thirteen with a very

juvenile science fiction short story, but the writing bug hit, and

she has been writing, in one capacity or another, ever since. She has

worked as a professional dancer, singer, journalist, and literature

teacher in both the university and middle school levels (and not

necessarily in that order) and holds a Masters in English literature.

She loves to hear from readers and, when not writing, roams around to

discover new places to set her novels.

She is currently working on her fourth book, a Detective Nick Larson

novel, and lives in North Carolina with her husband and her dog, Amber.
