Dare To Believe (The Kahuna Group Book 1) by L.A. Sartor




I love writing suspense. The twists and turns, the surprises (even to me as I was writing) and the outcome that justice is done and the suspense ends, leaving the reader satisfied.

Add in a romance and I think it’s a winning combination.

Dare To Believe is about second chances and believing that love outweighs evil intentions. Lies don’t stand up and family, be it extended or close, is most important.

This book didn’t start out to be a series, but once Gus was involved and readers loved him, I knew it had to become a series. How did the Kahuna Group name evolve? Gus, who is a secondary character in this book, needed a detailed background, and I found out (Gus did a lot of talking to me 😊 ) that he was a premiere surfboard champion. A Kahuna.

Betrayal Of The Trust is book 2 and I have a 3rd book in the works, set back in Hawaii, meeting Lelani (whom you meet in Dare) and a couple of new characters. And as in all my series, the prior characters make appearances.

He has every reason not to help her find the child that should have been his.

She has no one else to turn to.

Cate Hemstead Malloy’s life just hit a new low. Not only is she moving from her stately digs to a one-bedroom apartment, but her award-winning journalism career is now reduced to covering society events. It’s boring work, but at least it’ll keep a roof over her young daughter’s head. 

Jason St. Pierre is counting the seconds until his ex-love moves away, ending the torture of living across the road from her, her husband, and their daughter. But when he sees the newly widowed Cate chasing down her moving truck, screaming that her daughter is missing, he can’t ignore the fact that a child could be in danger and his protective instincts kick in.

As Jason and Cate follow the kidnappers’ trail through the majestic mountains of Colorado to the idyllic sands of Hawaii, they uncover deep layers of treachery and ultimate betrayal.

Dare they believe in a second chance at love, or will their rocky past get in the way of the help Cate so desperately needs?

Dare To Believe is the stunning introduction of the Kahuna Group Series, blending spine-tingling suspense and breathtaking romance. Be prepared for adventure as you meet the first members of a team of elite private investigators who fight for truth, love, and, above all, family. Get your copy today.

About the Author:
I started writing as a child, really. A few things happened on the way to becoming a published author …specifically, a junior high school teacher who told me I couldn’t write because I didn’t want to study … urk …grammar.

That English teacher stopped my writing for years. But the muse couldn’t be denied, and eventually I wrote, a lot, some of it award winning. However, I wasn’t really making a career from any of this.

My husband told me repeatedly that independent publishing was becoming a valid way to publish a novel. I didn’t believe him even after he showed me several Wall Street Journal articles. I thought indie meant vanity press.

I couldn’t have been more wrong.

I started pursuing this direction seriously, hit the keyboard, learned a litany of new things and published my first novel. My second book became a bestseller, and I’m absolutely on the right course in my life. Email me at I’d love to hear from you. My website is My books are there as well as a signup for my mailing list.
