After tracking the notorious Selena for over a year, Detective Mia Gonzalez has hit a brick wall in her investigation.  But when Mia discovers her striking resemblance to the criminal mastermind, she goes undercover in order to unravel their business from the inside.  What she doesn’t count on is falling for Donovan.


Spending so much time with the dark, mysterious—and dangerous—man, Mia finds an entirely different side to Donovan’s personality.  Not only is he a cunning businessman, but he’s also a thoughtful and caring partner to Selena.


In order to survive, Mia must remember there’s only one way to stay alive inside the viper’s nest—she must become a viper herself.


After weeks undercover as Selena, Mia discovers they couldn’t be more opposite—except, perhaps, when it comes to their taste in men.  Working closely with the tempting Donovan has given Mia insight into the deepest recesses of her mind.  When it comes time to make a choice, will she be strong enough to resist his pull?


Selena is as mysterious as Donovan is enticing.  She built her empire from the ground up, all while managing to stay out of the spotlight.  Someone who works in the shadows always carries secrets, and Selena is no exception.

When Mia makes a shocking discovery, she escapes Donovan’s luring presence only to realize she has nowhere to go.  Afraid to leave, terrified to return, Mia huddles in a dark, cold, underground tunnel while attempting to mend the pieces of her psyche.  When she finally gathers the courage to face her demons, Mia is captured and held prisoner by the DeLuca family.  With Donovan in their grasp, she’s faced with a difficult decision—but for her, there’s only one choice.


Rescue Donovan, take down the DeLucas, and find a way to get herself out of the mess she created.

These two worlds are about to clash in the ultimate battle between good and evil.  Only one will survive.  Only one will rise victorious.

Reviews for Catching Shadows

"This is a page turner. It has romance and a few steamy scenes (without being "erotica") but the basis of the story is Mia's journey to discovering her true self. Anything more than that would be major spoilers!

Donovan is dark and mysterious and super sweet to both Selena and Mia. He's a nice balance of alpha male and supporting partner.

All I can really say it! You will not be disappointed!"

-Goodreads Review Excerpt of Catching Shadows

"I normally don't do police procedural-type books, but after reading Ana Ban's other books I gave these a try as well. So glad I did! Mia is an interesting character with a heartbreaking background. Donovan is a dark, sexy and mysterious man she's supposed to hate but finds herself falling for. We're left with two different cliff hangers at the end- must read next book!"

-Goodreads Review of Infiltration

"Oh man, I didn't see that coming! Mia and Donovan certainly heat things up in this book, and I think we all fell in love with him right along with her! We get Selena's story along with Mia's, and even though I wanted to hate her I really can't. Ah! Cliff hanger! Where's #3??"

-Goodreads Review of Split

"Wow, wow, wow! So many twists and turns, and I definitely didn't see the truth about Donovan coming! Loved these books, just wish there were more!"

-Goodreads Review of Wakening
