Regan Hart is an economist.
She is an especially good one from the sounds of things, working into a position of considerable trust and remineration at Global Wealth Advisors (GWA). Since her graduation from Harvard with an MBA, she had earned her stripes, and a good deal of money, by "honing her skills in predicting the global commodieites markets". At GWA her bosses "considered her a near wizard at predicting the fluctuations in the futures prices of copper, coffee, and sugar". Since her recommendations made multi-millions for GWA clients, and quite a few for her bosses, she in turn was paid far more than she ever thought she would.
Being an economist and doing so usually behind a desk with a laptop open in front of her, it is interesting how she would find herself pulled from the realm of numbers and charts and graphs into a position where lots of very upset people are shooting very dangerous bullets at her but as one reads the recorded adventures, it makes a lot of sense. Still, she probably would not have survived much of what got thrown at her if it weren't for two recent acquaintances.
The first is Tyler 'Ty' Kensington, a licensed private investigator and neighbor who stepped into her life as a Good Samaritan and stayed around for a whole lot of action and danger. The fact that Hart is a very attractive young woman and Ty is a red-blooded male could easily be a factor. That and Ty had connections that most private eyes do not.
And then there is Solomon 'Solly' Rubin, a man in his early 60's but still in terrific shape who, being affiliated with Israeli intelligence, can come up with good reasons why people are after Hart and even provide help in keeping her alive.
