Dale Mayer Book List

Book List not complete
The K9 Files Series
Book 1: Ethan
Ethan Nebberly has always been somewhat of a loner, but since he's been out of the military...he's even more so. It's been tough. He'd lost his K9 partner...and his leg. When Badger asks him to help hunt down some former War Dogs, Ethan takes on the job. He soon finds something to look forward to again.

Cinnamon “Cinn” Michelson loves helping dogs. So much so, she helps find dogs home that are from some of the foreign countries. When a new guy comes to town and finds an injured shepherd, she wants to make sure the dog is well taken care of. Not in the hands of some drifter who can't even take care of himself.

War Dogs aren't your average pets. They've been trained as soldiers. In the wrong hands...they are a dangerous weapon. Add abuse to these beautiful creatures and Ethan has his hands full. Great story. Loved reading about the dogs. Looks like this is going to be another page-turning series.

 Book 2: Pierce
Pierce Carlton was at loose ends, so when Titanium Corp had a job for some of the guys who worked the K9 unit, he accepted. A War Dog, Salem, had fallen through the cracks when her owner ended up not being able to take care of her. She needed to be checked up on. Sounded simple enough, but nothing is ever simple.

Hedi liked being a deputy, sadly she was the only one on their small force who took her job seriously. And the sheriff...she had no respect for the man who was her boss. And the more she found out about him while helping the stranger in town...the more she disliked him.

Badger's men (SEALs of Steel Series) have started Titanium Corp. After being asked to follow up on War Dogs, they look for fellow military brothers to take up the baton and help them search. Really good series and this book was really good. A real page-turner and heartstrings puller.

Book 3: Zane
Zane Carmichael is at loose ends after leaving the military...not by choice. Medical discharge. When Badger, from Titanium Corp, offers him a chance to go back home to do a welfare check on a War Dog...his answer is no. Which only has Badger pushing to get him back there and deal with his past.

Holly Carmichael has always loved Zane. Even though she ended up married to his kid brother. But now, she's a widow and Zane is back in town. This may be her last chance to get him to stay.

Katch, the War Dog, is being hunted and Zane, with Holly's help, are doing all they can to keep him safe. I'm really enjoying this series. Unique dogs who've done incredible work saving humans...and just like so many human veterans...these dogs are also at loose ends when coming home.

Book 4: Blaze
Lovely Lethal Gardens Series
Book 1: Arsenic in the Azaleas
Doreen Montgomery has just moved into her grandmother's home. It's a huge change from where she lived with her wealthy husband. Nan's moved into Rosemoor, the nursing home not far from Doreen. Her first day isn't going too well. She hasn't even unpacked—before all kinds of things happened. Such as, she now not only has Mugs, her basset hound, but she's also a caretaker for a cat the size of Mugs and a talking bird.

The following days in her new home and town don't improve much. Doreen seems to be a magnet for trouble. Good thing she has the handsome detective to call.

This is told from Doreen's perspective only. A humorous mystery.
Book 2: Bones in the Begonias
Doreen Montgomery's move to her grandmother's home has been an interesting one. She is already well-known in the small town. After all, finding bodies buried in your backyard is big news. Thankfully life is settling down. There are less people hanging out in front of her home.

And then...she goes to help work in Detective Mack Moreau's mother's garden to make some money. And gardening is the only thing Doreen knows how to do well—unless you count finding bodies.

This story is told from Doreen's point of view only. Along with her dog, Mugs, and the cat and bird she's inherited with the house her grandmother has given her, Doreen can't seem to stay out of Mack's way. She's keeping the police force in this small-town busy. Not to mention the gossip mill. Great suspense and humor.
Book 3: Corpse in the Carnations
Doreen Montgomery is at it again. She doesn't mean to fall into mysteries...mostly dead bodies...but they keep seeming to find her.

Along with her basset hound, Mugs, her inherited Maine Coon cat, Goliath, and the ever chatty African Grey, Thaddeus; they find adventure and sometimes danger. Poor Mack, the police detective, has been pulled along into her adventures. Although, in the end he gets the credit for solving the case. Even some longtime cold cases.

And then there is Nan, Doreen's grandmother who left her the house...and pets. She may be living in Rosemoor, the retirement village, but Nan is busy. Mostly playing bookie.

As always, another fun-loving, page-turning adventure.
Book 4: Dagger in the Dahlias
Doreen Montgomery has just managed to get through solving a cold case. She's not been at her new home, her Nan's home, very long, and yet, she has either found dead bodies or found items sending her toward other mysteries. She's still trying to clean out her new home, get some valuable antiques out before they get ruined...or stolen...and she needs to learn how to cook and take care of herself.

When she gets a request to look into a cold can she say no? After all, if she can help someone find closure in their life, she'll do it. No matter how much she has to bother the handsome detective she's befriended. Great stories, especially with her animal menagerie...Mugs the basset hound, Goliath the Maine coon cat, and Thaddeus the talkative African Grey.
 Book 5: Evidence in the Echinacea
Doreen isn't even looking for evidence or murderers or anything. She's just trying to get settled into her new home. A home her grandmother has left her and has left it full of expensive antiques for Doreen to sell so she has money to live.

Thank goodness for Mack, the handsome detective, who's been helping her out. That man can make a meal to die for. Something that Doreen had never learned to do in her pampered life...cook.

Another great addition to this series. Between Doreen's nudges to “dig” deeper into things, her Nan sitting at the retirement home betting on things; such as Doreen's non-existent love life, and her small menagerie of makes these stories real page-turners. Not a dull moment in them.
 Book 6: Footprints in the Ferns
Book 7: Gun in the Gardenias
SEALs of Steel Series
Book 1: Badger
Badger Horley had nothing more to live for than finding out what happened to his unit when they were on a simple mission. His drive for vengeance had him ignoring his own body and the healing it needed. He would finish his way or another.

Dr. Kat Greenwald saw many patients and wanted to help all of them to the best of her abilities. But Badger...well, there was something special about him and she just had to find a way to get through to him to finish his surgeries so she could fit him with a prosthetic that wouldn't cause him so much pain.

When Badger and some of his former team find out that Kat's been getting threatening letters...he veers from his mission to help her. It doesn't distract him for long. Now, he has his mission and Kat to protect. Meanwhile, he'll have to let his former team pick up the baton and go on the next leg of the journey to find out who betrayed them.

Book 2: Erick
Erick Fuller has taken on the task of finding out who betrayed their SEAL unit two years ago while Badger, his friend and former team leader, stays back and takes the time to fully recover. With a few other men from their unit, he heads overseas. Back to the scene. The last person he would expect to find over the woman who hit his car a year ago.

Honey Lewis was so excited to be at the dental conference. Thankfully there had been a last minute opening. The expense was higher, was she was hungry for more knowledge. She was surprised to see the man whose car she hit a year ago. Didn't realize how good looking he was. Or how much trouble knowing him could get her into.

Far from home and not knowing who is friend—or who is enemy—the characters find themselves knee-deep in trouble. Erick was just doing some simple reconnaissance and Honey was just at a conference. Or so they thought. As the reader meets each of the SEALs who had been injured in the “accident” two years ago, the mystery continues in each story.

 Book 3: Cade
Cade Terence is in charge of the next leg of their mission. Along with Laszlo and Talon, they head to Norway to find out if their latest theory could be right. It's too unreal to imagine to be true...but it looks like it might be. As if their team hasn't been through enough the past two years, now they have to deal with something even more sinister.

Faith Halladay got a call that her best friend is dying. At least one good thing is that as a commercial airline pilot, she can fly free. The last person she'd ever imagine meeting in a Norway hospital is the handsome guy she shared a cab with. Only, as Faith finds out, it's not a good time to know him.

The mystery continues. The guys have a few more clues...but more questions than answers. And they are finding out how dangerous it is for anyone to have a connection to them. Really good series. The romances are completed in the books...the mystery is not.
**Sexual content
Book 4: Talon
Talon Lore has the baton now for the next part of the investigation into who blew up their truck when they were on a mission and who is killing their friends and family since then. It's time to face his old flame and the twin sister to his best friend. To tell her that Chad is dead because of him.

Clary Witcher's life hasn't been easy the last year. Her divorce and then losing her twin brother. And now...the one man she never really got over is back. She's older and wiser now. Independent instead of clingy—like she was when they were together before. But, after eight years, she finds that her heart never got over him.

Where these men from the SEAL team go...trouble follows. Whoever it is that hates them—hates them big time. And whoever he is, he's not slowing down. As each man finds his soul mate in this series, the next single man takes up the lead on the mission to search out the next clues. The romance is complete in each book...the mystery, however, continues.

Book 5: Laszlo
Laszlo Jensen's turn to take the lead on the search for who is behind the accident their SEALs unit was involved in two years ago. Also, who is killing—or in his father's case—attempting to murder their friends and family. So off to Texas he goes with another team member, Geir. Time to find out more of about Mouse. The youngest member of their team who died in the accident.

Minx Montgomery was Mouse's best friend. He was her protector in the world they grew up in. Only, these men who have come to find out about him are finding out more than she knew. It's starting to seem confusing that the boy she knew, is the same man they had known.

These books contain romances that are completed in each story...but the mystery of who is behind the murders continues.

Book 6: Geir
Geir Pavla takes up the search for whoever betrayed his SEAL unit...killing their youngest member. His friend Jager comes out of the dark to join him in San Diego. It seems every time the team members have gone is search of answers, they get close, and then get turned down a new road. Geir is hoping to find their answers and get closure so they can all move forward.

Morning Blossom loves her life. She runs a B&B and has plenty of time for her main passion...painting. She's always been trusting, leaving her front door open for her guests to come on in. Only now, the two handsome hunks staying with her brought along more than luggage. They brought trouble to her doorstep...and beyond.

After a land mine blows up the vehicle these men were in, they all have lost a lot. Body parts, organs, and two years of their lives. Back on their feet...somewhat, the seven surviving team members realize it was no accident. And neither is the losses of their family and friends. I can't wait for the next book...Jager's story and I assume the end of the mystery. Great series.

Book 7: Jager
Jager Elstad is the last single man standing from his SEAL team. So he heads off to Colorado alone. His parents' had died there in an accident and he needed to find out so many others connected to their was truly an accident. Or murder.

Officer Allison Monroe had stayed in Vail, Colorado after her husband died. It just felt like if she left...she'd be leaving him behind. Now, she was questioning more as she fought being under the command of a man who would rather stand behind his wife-beating friend than his officers.

Jager and Allison didn't expect their lives to change so drastically. But, once they met, it set something into motion that just couldn't be stopped. Still, there was a killer out there and Badger's SEAL team and the women they loved wouldn't be safe until the killer was stopped. Wonderful series that was a complete romance in each book, but a mystery that was continued.

Book 8: The Final Reveal
This book is written from Badger and Kat's point of view. They were the first couple in this series. Kat is extremely talented when it comes to creating a unique prosthetic. Badger and his unit go to Kat, as they have all lost at least one limb.

Kat has been living in Badger's awesome house for some time. She loves Badger...and his house. And that it has a pool is an extra bonus. It's also a great place for the six other men and their women to come on the weekend for barbecues and swimming.

As they sit and unwind from all that has happened over the past six weeks...Kat puts an idea she's had into motion. She wants to marry Badger and knows he'll never want to tie her down to him because of his continued medical issues. So, she's going to plan a wedding and surprise him. Great story. I had happy tears running down my face at the end.
Heroes for Hire Series
Book 1: Levi's Legend
Levi hasn't been the same since he was injured. Not quite the man he used to be, in his mind. But not having Ice as more than a business partner is starting to get to him. They've come to an invisible impasse and he needs to cross it. Or lose her.

Ice loves Levi but a woman can only take so much hanging on. It's time to make something happen—or leave. Of course, in their business of security, someone always seems to want payback and it's hard to straighten out your love life when the bullets keep flying.

From the SEALs of Honor series, Levi and Ice break away to start a security company. Hiring ex-military. Including those like Levi, Stone, and others who were injured and were no longer able to stay in the active combat. And yet, these men have a lot more to give then just sitting behind a desk. Great characters and story line.

Book 2: Stone's Surrender
Stone Tollard loved working for Legendary Security, and with his old SEAL unit. What he hated was having to be on the sidelines when he was having issues. Like dealing with his stump healing and his prosthetic fitting right. But, for now, he was doing better and on a mission. A mission that was about to change his life. Again.

Lissa Brampton's rebelliousness really got her in a pickle this time. To defy her overbearing father, she took off as fast as she could to volunteer for another mission to help others. Only this trip didn't turn out so well. She was kidnapped.

The team is sent to rescue Lissa and bring her back to the States. Only...trouble seemed to follow them every step of the way. A page-turning story that's action-packed with love trying to fit in where it can.

Book 3: Merk's Mistake
Merk Armand and his unit of former SEALs have lost trust since they were betrayed...and out of the navy from the injuries that caused. Thankfully Levi and Ice started Legendary Security so Merk and his brother SEALs can still do the work they know best and help people with their skills. He just didn't expect his ex-wife to be one of those needing help.

Katina Marshal was in trouble. Only one person came to mind when she needed someone to trust...Merk, her ex-husband. She hadn't seen him in years and didn't even know what he did. But somehow, she knew he was her only hope.

Legendary Security is starting to look a lot like Mason's group that they called the Keepers. Seemed like one after the other of their men were finding that one special woman who was worth keeping. Who could accept them for who they were and the work they did.

Their story begins in book three, Merk's Mistake, where Anne's friend Katina is in trouble and they send Flynn to protect Anne until the men after her friend are caught. Even in that book it hints at the fireworks between these two. Anne's temper and Flynn loving to ignite it. Another good story.

Book 7: Harrison's Heart
Harrison Hamilton was thrilled to be sent on a mission to the West Coast. The compound was turning into the love boat. Everywhere he turned...was a couple. And he was single. So going away was perfect. And what a job it ended up being!

Zoe Branson had to disappear. And she had to figure out what had happened at her parents' house before she could move on. Not that she could move on. She carried too much anger for the injustice she'd lived through and failure to save her friend.

Great suspense along with the romance as they search for the bad guys but there's more than one trail to follow. And Zoe isn't off the hook for what's happened as someone wants her to look guilty. Great story.

When Levi finds out about Kai's stalker...they come to her aid. Especially Tyson. He's determined to stay by her side—day and night—until the threat against her is over. This story is full of action and the author kept me guessing through the whole story on who could be behind things. Excellent story.

Jace Colley is fairly new to Legendary Security—and the only single man left on the team. The way things have been going—that status may change soon. In fact, when the smoky voiced woman walks in—he's a goner already.

Emily Leacock works for an insurance company. When three men die and they all have life insurance policies—and a past that involves her—she goes for help. And what a hunk she ends up with to help her.

Great story. The author did a fantastic job of leading the story down one path and then headed down another with twists and turns. As always, a real page-turner.
**Sexual content
Book 12: Rory's Rose
Rory Bellamy isn't sure where he belongs right now. The ranch he grew up on and helped run the last nine months...isn't home anymore. It's more his dad and brother's place. And now...Legendary Security's big building doesn't seem like home either. Until a chubby puppy waddles up to him. Maybe this place wouldn't be so bad.

Louise is a busy veterinarian. The past five years she's been getting her clinic going and hasn't had much time for socializing. Life might not be overexciting away from work...but she loves what she does. And then everything changed and life became very different when she got a delivery meant for someone else.

Cute puppies, bad...very bad, people, and romance come together to make another great, action-packed adventure for the folks connected to Legendary.

Book 13: Brandon's Bliss
Brandon Horton is new to Legendary Security. After only his third day, he's sent out on a mission—to Africa. A good friend to his new bosses...and a man known to many here...has gone missing. He's ready to get to work. And meeting the woman who called in about her missing boss won't be a hardship either.

Kasha Lowry has been working for Bullard for five years. She loves working for him and the money is great...great enough that she has options for her life. She's ready to go back to the States. She just isn't sure what she wants to do. Ice has offered her a place at Legendary and with a man like Brandon there, she's considering it.

Once again some of the team members head out for an action packed adventure. In the small towns where money is scarce and violence is high—even the best of men can be forced to do things against their will. And die for it. There is romance, but it comes in second to the mission.
**Sensual content
Book 14: Liam's Lily
Liam O'Brien has been at Legendary Security for about a week when he and North are sent on assignment. He thought he'd be traveling to exotic places for jobs—not two hours down the road and still in Texas. Although, an elephant sanctuary could end up being exotic.

Lilianna Howell's life had changed so much in two years. Her brother died in a fire, she lost her dad, mentally...not physically, after Keith's death. And then her twin sister did the unimaginable, most selfish thing ever... And now, someone is sabotaging the sanctuary and its donations. She never could've imagined how her life would change just by telling a family friend she needed help.

I really enjoyed this story. Action, suspense, who-done-it, and of course...romance. And so real life as to how things can happen right under your nose but if you aren't looking for never see it.

Book 15: North's Nikki
North Dockter is heading to England to help out a friend of Levi's. They'd barely landed before they were warned to behave by M16. Seems some other SEALs had previously been to England and caused a ruckus. North loved working for Levi and with guys like Ander. And helping out Charles and is fiery granddaughter is a plus too.

Nikki Beckwith had just gone to check on an order at her work's warehouse when all heck broke out. Warned to get out of the warehouse by a couple tough guys, but not before she saw something unusual in a crate. Granddad called in a favor, bringing two tougher guys from America to find out what was happening and to protect her.

Somehow Ice seems to know when to send the right employee of Legendary Security on just the right job. Meaning...the right job where he just happens to meet that special lady that will complete him.

Book 16: Ander's Angel
Anders Renau just finished a job with his buddy North. And of course, North found the love of his life. Now Anders is heading to Switzerland to head up a job. And of all things, it's to rescue a package...a live and kicking female. One that he might have a past with.

Angelica Winthrop loves her job. Up on the mountaintops getting data on glaciers. Working with her team and staying in the small cabins. It's all part of the job. Until blizzards and whiteouts happen and they get stuck inside. Or...if they get shot at. Seems her no-good father has once again done something to tick someone off and put her in the middle.

Great story that takes some twists and turns. The series always has great main and secondary characters. This book introduces two new team members, Reyes and Dezi, along with Anders and Harrison. And Ice seems to know exactly what team member to send on what mission as she is hitting one-hundred percent on her silent matchmaking.

Book 17: Reyes's Raina
Reyes Drere is heading home for the first time in two years. After is fiancée had cheated on him...he left and never looked back. He was traveling with Ice to look at plants for around the pool area...and his family had a garden center. Should be an easy enough trip.

Raina Woodcroft was the quiet one. Her twin sister, Reana, was always louder, prettier, more noticed. She always went after what she Reyes. Whereas, Raina held back and lost out. But now he's back for a visit and it's good to see her old friend.

Looking at plants wasn't as easy as planned. Not when Reyes ends up in the middle of a murder investigation. Another good story in the Heroes for Hire series.

Psychic Visions Series

Detective Brandt Sutherland has moved to this Portland department as he's sure the serial killer he's been after for years has now started killing in this area. He's never had any breaks in the case. When he finds out a young woman has come in with information...and was dismissed...he knows he has to find her. He's worked with a psychic before and believes they can help. Even if the rest of the department laughs at the idea.

I've read some of the later books first and have enjoyed them all. They are intense and written in a way that I feel I'm in the story...going through it with them. I enjoy all the different genres this author writes.

Book 2: Hide 'N Go Seek
Kali Jordan and Shiloh, her SARs dog, do their job extremely well. When someone realizes that it may be more than Shiloh's expert skills that are finding live survivors, they decide to prove it. Suddenly, Kali is part of a game she doesn't want to play. No one can possibly know she has abilities that help her find people. Nobody. But apparently, someone does.

FBI Grant Summers had “met” Kali seven years earlier at a seminar and has never forgotten her. When she's suddenly in trouble and a family friend asks him for his help—he's there. Finally, he has the chance to get to know this woman who's stayed with him for so long in his mind...but life isn't slowing down enough for that.

Great stories that really take me on an emotional ride as they pull me in. There is the romance...but the characters have to find a murderer to get to it. I love Stephan. He's been in the first two books and is such a unique character.

 Book 3: Maddy's Floor
Dr. Madeleine Wagner “Maddy” is puzzled and concern when patients start dying at The Haven. Especially when one of her patients die on the third floor—Maddy's Floor. She needs to prove her experiment that people can heal while on her floor. Using her intuitive medical talents...psychic energy.

Detective Drew O'Neil's family consists of his step-aunt and his uncle John. He needs to do all he can for them. And fortunately, Uncle John has been admitted to Maddy's Floor. He's not sure what the beautiful woman does, but he's heard good things. Hanging around the unique woman had Drew entering a world he never would've believe existed.

The first three books of this series; Tuesday's Child, Hide 'n Go Seek, and Maddy's Floor was free. I've read some of the later books so it's been great to read these and to “meet” Stefan Kronos, as he's in most all of the stories. I really enjoyed this book as well, since Maddy is in so many of the later books too.

But Kevin has never seen anything like this case - a killer with a personal vendetta to stop Alexis from finding out more about him...and his long dead victims.

The killer can be stopped. He must be stopped. But he's planning on surviving...even after death.

Book 7: Eyes to the Soul
Celina Wilton's life has not been a picnic, at all. She lost her parents, her best friend and love of her life and then her fiance. Then she lost her eyesight. If all of that is not bad enough, now she has some cruel predator living in her head and causing her pain. Oh, I forgot to mention, she also sees ghosts.

Stefan Kronos has always been considered unusual. He uses his psychic gifts to help others and waits for the day that his soul-mate will enter his life. Meanwhile, he has a unique teenager ghost living with him and unknown predators to find.

I personally have not read the previous books, yet. Many characters from the previous books are in this story though and it seems that Stefan was mostly likely in the previous books as well. Romance, mystery and more all in one.

Book 8: Now You See Her
Tia Hanniger is different. Her psychic abilities scared her parents, intrigued a scientist, and caused her to have to live her life on the run. She's tired of running. She's tired of being alone. But she also doesn't know who to trust.

Dean Walker's life changed from the moment he met the beautiful woman. She was definitely different and alone. He chose to help her and that came with risks. Risks he decided she was worth. As a cop, he is determined to protect her and his loved ones from this unseen danger.

Characters from the previous books join in to help Tia on her journey. She has strong abilities, she just needs to learn what they are and how to use them. This story pulled me in and carried me along at a fast pace from beginning to end.

Book 9: Shattered
Hannah Goodman is running from someone but has no idea who. Half the time she's not sure about her own life. One night, tired and covered in blood, she arrives at a house where a voice was leading her. She had no idea of the world she stepped into. A world that actually had her sane when she had thought herself crazy all these years.

Dr. Trevor Johnson went with his friend Stefan to check on the young woman who had ended up on Stefan's doorstep. Something about her drew him to her. He wanted to protect her. After seeing her father and his thugs at the hospital, he knew there was only one way to help her...

Many of the characters from the previous books come back in these stories. Dr. Maddy and Drew, Stefan and Mina, and others. Someone is messing with Hannah's head and these people are going to help her however they can. The only way they can, through paranormal channels. I personally have enjoyed this series. The books can be stand-alone, although if you like series and want to know the characters, it's best to start with book one.

This is a really “wow” story. It almost had me liking spiders and thinking about not squishing the next one I see. Almost. This is a real page-turner and every page I turned...I loved.

Sebastian Bentley is intrigued with Lacey from the start and then when he sees her “talent” he’s drawn in even more. But as things start happening, it brings back the nightmare of another dig where everything went bad. Very bad.

As always, the books in this series just grab a hold and keep me reading until the end. Clear details so I feel like I see what they see, feel what they feel. Loved it!

SEALs of Honor Series
Book 1: Mason
Lieutenant Mason Callister was on a mission as a SEAL. Rescue a woman from her kidnappers, return her to safety, and go on to the next mission. Simple. Should have been but not with this particular woman. The enemy wanted her and weren't giving up easy. Well, they were SEALs and they wouldn't be giving up either.

Tesla Landers was a geek. She wasn't a woman to be trekking through the wilds of Mexico. Running from kidnappers. Fighting for her life and the lives of her rescuers. Only she found herself doing just that. She was not going to give up or give in.

As always, Dale Mayer has written a story that pulls you in and has you turning pages until the end. I loved the story and the characters and I'm looking forward to read Hawk, Dane, Swede, Shadow, and Cooper's stories. It is action packed with romance trying to bloom while on the run...dodging bullets and bullies.
**Sensual content and language
Book 2: Hawk
Hawk Loring had five days off and he was going to spend some quality time with his sister in hometown. Just rest and relax in the nice quiet town. Right. Looked like there was no rest for the weary on this trip. That quiet hometown looked like a very unfamiliar place the minute he got there...and it only went from bad to worst.

Mia hated the caves. That's why she was there practicing for search and rescue face her fear and be at the ready if someone was lost in them. She was glad to get back into the fresh air above ground until she read her messages. Things were definitely more peaceful in the caves.

The SEAL team is back. Mason from the first book, Hawk, Swede, Dane, Shadow, and Cooper. Six men who are on a team together but are also like brothers. When Hawk called to say there was trouble in his hometown...the team, who had a few days break, stepped up beside him. I really enjoyed both books and I'm looking forward to the next one.
**Sexual content and language
Book 3: Dane
Dane Carter is rather envious of two of his fellow SEALs...they found love. Women who are tough enough to know their men have a job to do...and willing to let them do it. He thought he wanted that too. Maybe. Right now he had a mission to focus on, finding a man involved in terrorism. And the woman they find might be guilty...or could she be as innocent as she seems?

Marielle Stanfield has become a workaholic. Work and taking care of her mom. Her only family left and she was losing her to dementia. When an old professor friend of hers offers her some holiday time in a house in Germany...she grabs the chance to visit with him and relax. Well that didn't work out so all.

Another action packed story in this series. These guys are tough and can get the job done. But when the right woman enters their life...they become teddy bears, very protective teddy bears. If you are looking for a great read that has action and romance, this is a great series. The first book is Mason and the second is Hawk.
**Sexual content and language
Book 4: Swede
Swede Dome had been watching as three of his SEAL brothers found true happiness. None of them thought they'd find the right woman with the type of job they held. They'd been wrong. Having long tired of the meaningless encounters with women, Swede hoped to find the right gal. Or maybe he already knew who it was. It was who her brother was that was an issue.

Eva Loring, Hawk's sister, had always had an attraction to the huge man, Swede. But she also saw his lifestyle. Not the danger of being a SEAL but the women. The last time he visited he had two women with him. Now that she's in Mexico on a horse rescue, she's finding she needs Swede to rescue her. In more than one way.

Loving this SEALs series. These big tough men are brought to their knees when they find the women who make their knees weak. And nothing like having their woman in trouble to bring out the warrior. These books are full of constant motion and suspense with a big helping of romance on the run.
**Sexual content and language
Book 5: Shadow
James Morrow, known as Shadow to his friends, lives up to that name—he lives in the shadows. Alone. He's content with his life just as it is. He's happy for his friends who have been finding the perfect women as partners. And then he goes on the mission that changes everything.

Arianna Stephenson planned on a long weekend at her grandfather's cabin. She wanted to show her young brother the things she enjoyed there as a girl. Instead, they were being held hostage. Just when things were looking pretty hopeless...a SEAL came to her rescue.

I've really enjoyed this story. Every book is another mission with the characters the reader has met in previously books. Mason, Hawk, Dane, and Swede have all found women who are tough enough to stick with them. These stories are full of action and love has to be found while on the move.
**Sexual content and language
 Book 6: Cooper
Cooper Braxton is finally healed up and ready for action with his SEAL team. Especially when he finds out what the mission is. To rescue some missing American doctors who were taken from a refugee camp. One of the doctors missing had patched him up and pushed him to heal. He owed her.

Dr. Sasha Childs had signed up for three months at this camp, she only had a few days left. Suddenly she finds herself attacked and a hostage. One of her colleague, an older doctor, was in bad condition. This wasn't looking good for any of them. Would help come in time?

Another adventure with the SEAL team from the previous five books, plus a few new men. The author keeps the story moving along at a fast pace and manages to throw romance in between the running, rescuing, and fighting. Great series.
**Sexual content and language
Book 7: Markus
Markus Donner loved his job. Especially since it took him out of his lonely existence at home. He had known happiness in marriage and went through all the levels of grief after she died. Now he could work hard at his job. Or in this case, they were headed for training in Alaska. Only it ended up being much more.

Bree Henderson had faced death. She was ready for it but beat it so now she grabbed life by the horns and enjoyed every moment. She was traveling the country and had only been in Alaska a few weeks when she got more excitement than she ever needed in a lifetime. She also met the most wonderful, sexy, kind man ever.

I absolutely loved the personality of Bree. She is celebrating her life and is so humorous. And parts when Markus and Bree get going at each other—while a team member is listening—is hilarious. Like the other books in this series they are in danger but Dale Mayer just added some laugh-out-loud moments in this one that really add to the story.

Book 8: Evan
Evan Wilson is on the Keepers SEALs unit. Yup, everyone on this team has seemed to find that special woman who is a keeper. Maybe it's his turn. A woman from his past has just moved to the base. Three years ago he was a different man. He's hoping the man he is now can is someone she'll want to keep.

Megan Hemmingway fears she can never love. After breaking it off with her fiance, she took the chance to start over and move to the base in California. Maybe she was just moving closer to the man she spent one unforgettable weekend with.

They'll just have to wait and see if they are meant to be together. After Ice and Megan, the co-pilot on the helicopter, rescue the SEAL team from a mission gone bad—things get worse. Four men are injured and now someone is out to kill Megan. Great series. Every story is action packed and keep you turning the pages.

Book 9: Mason's Wish
Mason and Tesla have been together for some months now. Mason is finally back from a mission and they can spend a special first Christmas together as a couple.

Of course nothing happens easily for these SEALs and their women. Just when it seems they can have a nice quiet Christmas—the outside world intrudes once again. And it's included messing with Tesla! Which of course sends Mason and the guys on the warpath.

Another heart-pounding, turn-turning story in the lives of these SEALs and what they'll do to protect their women—including their friend's woman.

Book 10: Chase
Chase Buchanan had left his past behind a decade ago. After returning home from a mission—he finds that his past has caught up to him. And it's not a good thing. What is good is that now he has his unit—his SEAL brothers, to help him.

Vanessa Roman was an immigrant and she enjoys her job of helping others to adjust to a new start in America. She's really excited when she can reunite a young boy trying to adjust to the man who had rescued him back in his homeland.

Chase never meant to bring his team or anyone else into his troubles but he did. Now he not only has the problem of fixing his past—but he also has a woman and two young boys to protect as well.

Book 11: Brett
Brett Chapman was on a mission. Pirates had taken over a yacht. When a cabin door opens for him to enter...he finds someone from his past inside. One mission accomplished but an unexpected one starts up.

Ceci was just going to have a nice break from life, a vacation on a yacht with her two young children. Somehow things go from bad to worse. Thank goodness, Brett is there to protect them. Unfortunately, it brings memories of her past decisions gone wrong.

The men on this SEAL team keep finding women they want to keep. Mostly after they have rescued them from danger. I like how many of the characters from the previous books are included in each story. And this book had a couple new unique characters. Great series.

Book 12: Devlin
Book 13: Easton
Book 14: Ryder
Ryder Lewis had lost his best friend two years ago after a weekend that had changed their friendship—and his life. She had walked out without a word. Two years later she's back. But not with him.

Caitlyn made a huge error a few years ago. She left without talking things out. Now, she's missing her best friend. Being overseas as a military nurse is way out of her comfort zone, but the men need to be helped and she needs to be helping. And maybe...she'll have a chance to see Ryder and finally talk to him again.

A SEALs life is not easy and they are often in danger. It's enough to be watching out for the enemy without having a woman who was once your best friend in the danger zone as well.
**Sexual content
Book 15: Macklin
Macklin Princeton's last relationship was so bad, that he's pretty much given up on dating for a few years now. A wacko woman who stalks you can do that to a man. But when the new detective picks him up for questioning...he rethinks the whole relationship thing. Although, when you're a murder's kind of hard to date the detective.

Detective Alex Carson has been on the job for a month. Now she has a murder and several break-ins to solve, while trying to prove herself as the right person for the job. And not everyone in her department is being helpful. Let alone having such a hunk as Macklin being a prime suspect when she'd much rather get to know him in other circumstances.
A great who-done-it and why story line.

Book 16: Corey
Corey Handleman was stunned when he met an old flame for coffee. She was as beautiful as she'd been twelve years ago. His first love. When she suddenly leaves before their food even arrives—he feels rejected. Again. Somehow, he had missed all the warning signs that she might've been in danger—as he finds out a few days later that she's missing.

Angela Buffalo never thought her life could get so bad. Somehow in seven years, she'd slowly become a prisoner in her own home. And then she found out what her husband was really like. Unfortunately, he was controlling and wasn't going to let go very easily.

A great story line. What starts as an old friend helping Angela out, turns into a full-blown case. A case that needs to be worked quickly and quietly as lives were at stake.
**Sensual content
Book 17: Warrick
Warrick Canton has watched most all of his friends find their soul mates. He had been staying out of relationships himself. Since the breakup of his long-term relationship, he stepped back to decide what he really wanted.

Penny Thornton had the temper to go with her red hair and the big, handsome hunk who couldn't seem to fill his medical forms out correctly had that temper on high. Until her life turned into a nightmare of life and death—then she couldn't be happier to have the hunk as her protector.

The SEALs are falling by the boatload—falling in love, that is. And with a little help from Telsa and Mason...Warrick might just be the next one to fall out of the boat into the sea of love...once Penny can stop worrying about a gunman on the loose.

 Book 18: Tanner
Tanner McGrath had watched his friend Warrick, and many SEALs before that who were connected to Mason, fall in love. He wasn't looking, not really. But when he ends up rescuing his instructor during a paragliding practice...he finds out what those men before him did...sometimes love just falls into place when you're not even looking.

Wynn Ryder had given up competition a few years ago when her brother was hurt. She enjoyed teaching at the school. When something goes wrong, she's mighty glad for the handsome SEAL who was able to come to her rescue.

But, was it an accident? Just like the other incidences in Wynn's life lately that add up to something more serious. Someone is trying to hurt her. Maybe even kill her. Who better to have around than a Navy SEAL? Great story. Kept me turning the page and wondering who the culprit was.
**Sexual content
Jackson Pearson was just driving back from a training session. He had time off and offered to drive one of the rigs. It broke down on the way back and everything went downhill from that. Well, maybe not meeting the tiny tornado who stopped to help him.

Dahlia “Deli” Montgomery loved being a mechanic. For now, it was working in the navy garage at Coronado. She went through all the training like everyone in the military, but her choice was a wrench over a gun. Fighting an engine...not an enemy.

People are getting hurt and dying around Jackson and Deli, and he's afraid they may be next on the hit list. Besides his SEAL brothers, he's not sure who the friendlies are or who are enemies. Definitely a puzzle that needs solving and fast! Another fast action story, not to mention the continuing...she's a keeper...theme that started with Mason.

Family Blood Ties Series
Prequel Novella: Sian's Soluton
Sian is in love with a human. She is a vampire. To protect Taz she tells him she don’t love him and goes into her own territory, just to have him follow her and be captured by an underground human blood mill. Sian plans on rescuing Taz or die trying. This is a very short story.
First three books in one
Book 1: Vampire in Denial
 Tessa is an oddity, what they called a throwback. She just felt like a sixteen-year-old suspended between two worlds and not fitting in either one. A girl in a family of vampires who had human genes. When the guy she likes is kidnapped by her own kind, Tessa finds what she is really made of.

Cody is from one of the oldest pureblood families and Tessa’s family is like his own, she’s always been like a little sister. The night she goes to rescue her human friend he sees a whole new side to her. Little Tessa has grown up.

It takes a young girl to get the old vampires going out of their comfort zone to help find out what is going on in their world. Beyond humans being kidnapped it looks like evil mischief is happening as well. A well written and page turning story. does end with quite the cliffhanger but the good news is that book two; Vampire in Distress, is already out there for you to continue the journey. Sian’s Solution is a short story that introduces the series.
*Mild language
Book 2: Vampire in Distress
 The war continues between the good vampires and those running the blood farm. And it seems humans might be involved as well. As Tessa gathers people to go and rescue her friend Jared, nothing seems to go right. They fine one person just to lose another.

It soon becomes apparent they cannot trust anyone but their small group. And it also seems that Tessa’s vampire heritage is stepping up for her when she needs it the most. The sixteen-year-old girl from just a few days ago is not now nor will ever be the same. And it looks like the war has just begun.

The previous books in this series are Sian’s Solution and Vampire in Denial. The next book is Vampire in Design. The books definitely end with cliffhangers but the good news at this point is...the next one is published, so no having to wait around.
Book 3: Vampire in Design
 The battle between good vampires, bad vampires and the unknown human factor continues to play out. I love how the author jumps around on the point of views in this story. We see through the eyes of Tessa, Cody and Jared’s eyes and more. Each one is fighting their own battle in a different area. And yet it all blends together beautifully in the story.
Once again it’s hard to see who is good and who is evil. So they have to approach each situation with their eyes and senses wide open. Great stories that keeps the reader turning the page and if you are a visual reader, on your toes and ready to see what is around the next corner. Most likely something very unexpected. As with the previous books this also ends with a cliffhanger but thankfully Vampire in Deceit is already out there for you to purchase and see what happens.
Book 4: Vampire in Deceit
 Tessa, Cody and their friends and family continue their battles within the mountain walls. Jared has a new battle that brings him back to the mountain, to the blood farm. He must battle his fear of this place to face his discovery. Others down the mountain fight their own battles. To shut down this horrific blood farm and do it while not knowing who they can trust.

Turning to the humans for help seemed better than weeding through the vampires. It may be a decision that comes back to bite them in the butt. Another adventure packed trip through the white tile halls in the mountain to battle the never ending enemy, or so it seems. And just when it seems it can’t get does.

This series ends with cliffhangers. I do advise reading this as a series. The stories are definitely connected and the adventure continues from one book to the next. I love the way the author lets the reader see what’s happening from so many different point of views. Great stories that pull the reader in and wanting to read the next story as soon as finishing the previous one.
Book 5: Vampire in Defiance
 Everything is coming to a head. The gang is hopefully closing in on who is in charge of the blood farm. The rescues are in full swing. And of course as soon as they find one person another one seems to get taken or lost. There have been some big surprises and more to come.

This book finishes and closes the story of Moltere’s Mountain and all it’s white tiled hallways, rooms and blood farming. Tessa’s family is split up as they look for each other. Jared has returned to help, as best as human can. Time is running out for the good vamps and humans though, will they all make it out of the mountain in time? Be sure to read the previous books in this series to follow along with Tessa, Cody, Jared and their friends in family as Tessa’s life goes from going to a movie with friends to fighting for her life.
Book 6: Vampire in Conflict
Tessa expected life to be different. But she was still the not quite vampire, not quite human daughter. Not vampire enough for Council matters. Not human enough to be a hero at her school for saving them.

Jared’s first day back to school started a bit better, but the next day...let’s just say if someone died, he seemed to be the one to find them.

Cody just wants time with Tessa, wants her in the vampire world so he can protect her. Never did he realize the difference of her being able to go out in the sunlight while he couldn’t until now.

And all of this was only the beginning. Ian and Jewel are still in the hospital along with many other vamps and things don’t seem quite right there. And then it all breaks loose and the kids see they aren’t going to get any breaks soon. The war is far from over. As with most books in this series, it ends on a cliffhanger. Love this series, cliffhangers and all.
Book 7: Vampire in Chaos
The saga of our heroes and heroines continue as they fight a war they never asked for, and yet, they are the only ones who can fight it. This story starts where the cliffhanger in the previous book, Vampire in Conflict, left off.

Somehow everyone keeps getting separated. Tessa and Cody are searching for Serus and David somewhere in the deepest depths under the vampire hospital. Not only do they meet two unusual seems the one has plans for Tessa, big plans. Whether Tessa agrees or not.

Cody just wants life to slow down so he can spend time alone with Tessa. She keeps amazing him more and more with each minute he's with her.

Their friends who have been drugged are slowly being found, like Ian and Jewel. Rhia has lost parts of her memories from the drugs and has no idea where she may have sent their son Seth.

Jared's trust list has grown very short. He's back at the home but not for long. With his family dead, his future is taking a turn he refuses to follow. And why won't anyone answer his texts?

As always, the author is the queen of cliffhangers. Vampire in Crisis will be the next book to continue the journey to find out who is heading the blood farms and how to shut them down. And Tessa's future...her head is exploding with possibilities.
Book 8: Vampire in Crisis
Tessa was once just an outcast among her people for having a human side. Lately she's become their hero. As Tessa gains more knowledge and strength, she also gains more struggles. More enemies to find. Seen and unseen. And as usual life is just too busy to give her the time with Cody she desires.

Cody stands by Tessa's side through everything. Her protector. Whether she wants...or needs him to be. 

Serus and Goran continue to fight side by side even while Serus has Rhia to worry over. Many of the other characters the reader has met through these books continue with struggles of their own. Such as; Jared, Chelsea, Jewel, David, Wendy, Ian, Sian, and Taz. The list of who can be trusted and who can't is growing smaller and smaller as they fight to close down the blood farms and stop the danger.

Once again Dale Mayer takes the readers on an adventure with the heroes and heroines, both human and vampire. This book ends on a bit of a cliffhanger as many in this series have. As always, they are worth the wait to find out what happens next.
**Mild language
Book 9: Vampire in Control
The characters continue as the war rages between the vampires running blood farms and the heroines and heroes fighting their own people to save the humans and stop this evil.

Tessa, Cody, and Motre are one team fighting their way through the enhanced vampires to find the leaders and destroy the blood farms while Sian tries to hold the communications fort down. David has been searching for Jewel. Ian, Wendy, and Jared are in a bad place once again as well and they have Rhia with them. she the good Rhia, or the bad one?

Serus and Goran are waiting and ready for action. Serus knows Rhia is searching for Seth and he knows that many of the vampires would rather kill her then take the chance she's off the drugs and back to her normal self.

This book takes the reader through many battles and several surprises...good and bad...for Tessa. It's not the finale though. The war still rages on. Enemies and friends still hard to distinguish from each other. I'm looking forward to the next book already to see where this author is taking the readers on this journey.
**Mild language
Book 10: Vampire in Charge
Tessa and Cody, along with their family and friends, continue to fight against the enhanced vampires. Fighting to close down all of the blood farms. They also have to find the missing humans and rescue them.

Each turn they take seems to take them into more danger. And more unexpected foes. Tessa and Cody know they are meant for each other, but there has been no time for them to slow down and have time together. Though, there seems to finally be light at the end of their long journey.

These books are written from many points of view, which I enjoy. The characters are mostly fighting in groups and the reader can see what is going on from all the different areas and viewpoints. These stories seem to keep the pages turning without any slow areas. I really enjoy them.
Glory Series
 Book 1: Genesis
Genesis Chandler is the last of her family in Little Glory. A year ago her sisters left, as did the love of her life. She hadn't realized how far she'd let herself fall from her responsibilities in that time until she goes back to the caves and forest that were left in her care. Something is amiss and it's up to her alone to fix things.

Connor Bateman has returned to Little Glory. To the woman he had loved and left. He was determined to change things, prove himself worthy. To stop working for Grandfather. His first day back ends up with an aching head and problems. And Genesis.

This new series takes place on a different planet. The residents of Earth have had to move to different planets, ten of them so far. Triplet sisters Genesis, Tori and Celeste are on Glory. A year ago all three were engaged and life was good. Their granny passed and everything changed. I'm looking forward to more stories in this series.

**Sexual content and language
Part Two: Biker Blues: Morgan
Morgan and Jazz continue to dodge they work with the police to find out who is after them. And, if the body in the morgue is Billy, who killed him.

It's a bit hard to rebuild their romance while being pursued and tormented by some unknown assailant, on the other hand, it may be pushing them closer together

As with part one, this book also ends on cliffhanger and keeps the reader anxiously awaiting the final installment of this series. Suspense and romance mixed with a who done it and who exactly was it done to.

Part Three: Biker Blues: Morgan
Things are not getting any easier for Morgan and Jazz. She's not healing up from her gunshot wound which is understandable since they haven't had more than a moment's peace since it happened. It's harder to know the good guys from the bad...or to see any light at the end of the tunnel.

Maybe there is not a bright light shining but at least they will come to an end of a really tough time. This third novella in the series brings a finale to this story.

Book One: Skin
A week long seminar for some people who are in a therapy group led by a professor and therapist. Jenna had paired up the members of the group to work on their assignments, to help them discover healing together. To those seemed impossible.

Tania had been living with her traumatic experience for twelve years. Afraid of men, all men. And now instead of being paired up with her friend Robin, Jenna has paired her with a man. A large, powerful and handsome man.

Kane wouldn't be here if not for his brother urging him. And of all things to be paired with the tiny Tinkerbelle who seemed to be scared to death of him. How this would help him overcome his past issues, he had no idea.

Seems Jenna is a wise woman and great therapist who knew what she was doing when she partnered up those in her group. Book two in this series is Scars, Robin's story.

Book Two: Scars
Robin Childers has scars from a car accident. Is it the scars on the outside that are really holding her back? Or could it be the ones on the inside?

Sean Wilson is only at the seminar because he was accepted and came so he could tell his sister about it. Nothing this week was going to help him. Or so he thought.

Jenna has a way of partnering up the folks at her seminar. They have assignments to do together and somewhere along the way...healing begins. If you enjoy series so you can “see” the whole stories than you'll want to read book one, Skin.

Weaver was a psychology grad and sees this workshop Jenna is doing as a stepping stone to his career. If he can write up a report on it, she'll help him get it published. Sure, he has troubles of his own but nothing he needs help with. Or so he thought.

Jenna, the professor who teaches these seminars, has a special knack of knowing just who needs what...and who.

Dale Mayer - In Cassie's Corner
Cassie Merchant has just lost her very best friend,Todd Spence. When his ghost appears and pleads with her not to believe what people say, she goes on a mission to find out the truth. Knowing Todd better than anyone else, she knows the facts just don’t match up. She just needs to get others to believe her without revealing she’s talking to a ghost.

To me this story goes a bit further than fiction. How many times do we prejudge someone or talk about the dead in a disrespectful way? Just as people misjudged Todd because he put a tough shield over himself, so often we do the same without truly knowing someone. This book grabbed me from page one and didn’t let go.

It's a Dog's Life
Ninna Bradford finally landed a job after being out of work for way too long. It’s working at a pet center where they have medical facilities, adoptions and dog training. She’s never owned a pet, but surely she can learn about them. And the handsome young vet isn’t hard to be around either. If only the big old basset hound would stop talking to her. She’d been through so much counseling to stop the voices and now when she finally has a good job, she seems to be going crazy.

A great story with a touch of mystery along with a bit of romance. Hard times have hit their town and someone is busy with breaking into the homes around her. And it seems he’s taken to watching Ninna. Maybe she needs to find a dog of her own, one that doesn’t talk to her and drive her crazy. Although, Mosey is starting to grow on her a bit.
