**I apologize for the poor grammar in the earlier book reviews.
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.
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.
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.
Blaze Bingham knew it was time to go home. He just needed that final shove. He only had his dad now, it was time. When Jager told him about a K9 in the area he was from, it was what he needed. To go home with a purpose...to find Solo.
Camilla Channing had an events business. Charity events, dog show events, any kind of events is what she loved. But one thing she hated...wedding events. She'd only done one and should've learned from that. But no, here she is doing a second wedding for another friend. It was bad enough pleasing the bride...but then someone had to go and cause trouble.
A dog. A ruined wheel on a car. A soldier returning home after being gone too long. And somebody out to get someone for some unknown reason. Put them together for a great story and hopefully a happy-ever-after for man, woman, and dog.
Lucas Scott has been injured and is now out of the navy. When he gets a call from Titanium Corp about checking on a missing War Dog named Top Hat, he jumps on the mission. After all, it's in Canada so he can visit his sister and her family, and maybe he can tie up the loose ends with his ex-fiancée so he can move on.
Tanya Nolan's life has gone down the crapper since she broke up with Lucas. One of her roommates was murdered; the other is in a coma after a hit and run. She was alone...lonely. When her friend Meg, Lucas's sister, mentions Lucas is there, Tanya decides it's time to face him and get the past settled.
When Lucas agrees to take Tanya on a road trip to get Top Hat, they have no idea of what they are in for. Their search leads them onto a dark trail and danger that neither ever expected. I really enjoy these K9 stories.
Cutter is heading to Iraq after his brother was killed, along with
his crew. While there, the Titanium Corp has asked him to search for
a missing War Dog. Samson. Since his brother's best friend was killed
in the same incident, his friend's sister, Sandy, flew with Parker to
the base. It was supposed to be easy. Fly in, stay for a service, fly
home with the bodies. Look for Samson when he could. Nothing is ever
Bressard, a nurse in the military...stateside. She'd heard about
Parker from her brother. Knew he was a good guy. She was glad she
wasn't alone on this journey that she felt she had to make. Ends up,
she's really glad she has Parker at her side.
Parker and Sandy will be ending their military service in the next
few weeks. Their brothers' deaths helped decide that for both of
them. What they didn't expect was what trouble they accidentally fell
into when searching for a lost dog. Another page-turning adventure
from beginning to end.
Aaron Hammond needed a change. He wasn't moving forward from his war injuries. After throwing a fit about getting transferred, he found himself at Hathaway House. A new rehab. Another chance at healing.
Dani Hathaway and her father had started Hathaway House after her father was injured in the military. A place to help men heal...and animals. Their veterinary clinic gave animals a second chance and it also helped encourage their human patients.
Aaron and Dani had known each other over a decade ago. His older brother, Levi, had been Dani's best friend. Now Dani has to keep secrets from Aaron—a man who'd been betrayed in a big way. This is more than a romance as Aaron needs not only to heal physically—but also emotionally.
Brock Gorman is frustrated. He's not healing. He's a man used to using his big mitts for working...not laying around on a bed. He has all kinds of preconceived ideas about his new therapist at the first meeting. He quickly finds out he was completely wrong by the second one.
Sidney Morning has just returned to Hathaway House after nine months of schooling. Her boyfriend decided to dump her at the start of school, so it's good to be home again. Around the people who are like family. Only, her first day doesn't go so well.
This series takes place at Hathaway House in Texas. A place started by a father and daughter to help injured military men. And a veterinary clinic downstairs. The men and animals help each other with healing. Since Dani, the owner, found love with a patient...the doors have opened up for more romance.
Cole Muster was so excited to get to Hathaway House, only he thought he needed to catch up to Brock with his healing. Instead, it set him back and he almost lost his chance to be at Hathaway. Now that he has a second chance...he'll behave.
Sandra has been a nurse at Hathaway House for five years. She loves it here. Cole had hurt her with something he'd done the first time he was there. She'd be more careful around him this time and he'd have to prove she could trust him.
Hathaway House is a great place to heal. Lately, it's been a great place to find your soulmate too. Once Dani Hathaway broke the rules by falling for a patient...it opened the door for others. I'm really enjoying this series.
Denton Hamilton has finally arrived at Hathaway House and he couldn't be more grateful. Someone has funded his way and he's not too proud to accept it. But he'll do the best he can to be worthy of that donor. With his friends Brock and Cole, he hopes to move forward.
Hannah has been working at Hathaway for a year now. She realizes, as she watches Denton with his friends, that she doesn't have any real friends. If something happened to her...she'd have no one to care.
Denton and Hannah are opposites but each has a quality the other person needs to learn. Loving this series.
Elliot Carver was finally at Hathaway House but he isn't improving, or so it feels that way. The nightmares seem as bad as before. Keeping him awake and too tired to work on his back to strengthen and heal it.
Sicily works the night shift. Usually, her patients mostly sleep, until Elliot. Spending so many nights with him being awake has created a bond. A bond she's never had with another patient.
These injured heroes really grab my heart and make for a page-turning book. I really enjoy this series.
Finn MacGregor has been hesitant about going to Hathaway House. His friend Elliot has been urging him to come for some time. And Dani, who runs the center, is an old friend that would make room for him for sure. And she did, the minute he decided it was time to go to the next step in healing.
Fiona Smithers is relationship shy. Her last relationship didn't end too well and then, a misunderstanding with a patient at her work added to that. So, when Finn becomes one of her patients...and maybe more...the old memories come out to haunt her.
Hathaway House is a healing place for veterans and animals. Each helping the other heal in their own way. Life isn't easy for these wounded warriors. They have to work harder than ever to get ready to face life again. Great series!
Gregory Parkins isn't the man he was five years ago. Back then, he only thought of himself and he was whole. Now, as he sits with his body broken from war, all he can think about is the girl he left behind five years...and second chances. And he knows just where to go to try for that second chance.
Meredith Anderson is a nurse at Hathaway House. After reading about a new patient coming in...and how badly broken his body is...she's surprised to see who it is. A man from her past. A man she's never forgotten. A man she's never moved on from. Maybe with him here they can finally have closure.
Shane and the team aren't easy on these guys. The SEALs were the best of the best and they still have that in them, even though they don't believe it. They may hate the people who push them...but in the end, when they leave Hathaway House, they have their spirit...and their life back. I love this series!
Hankerson has been accepted to continue his healing at Hathaway House. He's not
making much progress though. It doesn't help when you carry a load of guilt
around. Even worse, when you can't get a decent night's sleep because of the
nightmares from that guilt. And then, something amazing happens...for a short
time. Maybe he was better off without it since it's worse with it gone.
Cisco has found solace for her hurting heart working at Hathaway House. For
now, just being a night shift housekeeper gives her peace. Mopping the hallways
in the early hours of the morning. Trying to clean her life like she cleans the
loved how this story is told. The hero and heroine aren't sure who the other is
for a while. I enjoy this series. It's about a place of hope for those who have
been wounded in war. A healing place for both body and soul.
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 active combat. And yet, these men have a lot more to give then just sitting behind a desk. Great characters and storyline.
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.
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. It 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.
Rhodes Gorman is one of the men who originally came to Legendary Security with Levi and Ice. He loves working there. But now, he friend's little sister is working there too so Rhodes is doing his best to keep away. When he first met her, she was too young and her brother warned him off. Now...well, she's all grown up and beautiful.
Sienna Bentley seems to be a trouble magnet. Ice had found her sitting under a tree on the side of the road. Pure luck that she ended up here among people who know her brother, who is also a SEAL. And then there is Rhodes. Her brother's friend she never forgot. She never planned on going on any type of mission, but here she is...on a mission and alone with Rhodes.
Levi's team had been betrayed and injured because of it. Trust doesn't come easily. And now, this mission Rhodes and Sienna are on has them not knowing who to trust. Even though they are in the States. In Texas. It's hard to tell friends from enemies.
Flynn Kilpatrick had felt he'd done the right thing as a SEAL, but being he disobeyed orders...he was booted out. After a year of wandering, he's hoping to get on full-time with Levi's company, Legendary Security. But it looks to him like his bad luck has followed him and he's not sure where his future will be.
Anne Burrows has a small animal shelter. And a fairly boring life...until she gets a bodyguard. She enjoyed having the muscular man around to help with the animals but it was lonely when he left. And now, he's back...but has brought some type of trouble with him.
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. **Sexual content
Logan Redding and Harrison are sent to Boston just for a hands-off look at some places that may be involved in human trafficking. They find more than what they expected and soon…it’s a hands-on mission.
Alina Chambers is ready to give up. She’s tied up and sees no way of escape now that her captor has left her alone for the first time. When new voices come into the apartment…she has no idea if life is about to get much worse or not. It could be more guys like her captor, thieves, or who knows. Luckily for her, it was a hero.
This is another really good story, but it’s tough thinking of the reality of human trafficking. That it’s something that really is happening here on American soil.
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.
Saul Kreschner is heading back to San Diego with three other guys to find Daniel, a SEAL's brother, while Benji is on a mission. Sure enough, Daniel is missing but it turns into a much bigger case when they find out another woman is missing too.
Rebel Matheson has been watching Daniel's apartment in hopes of finding out what happened to her best friend, Tammy. When four really big men show up, she figures it can't be good. Ends up to be very good when the men believe her and add Tammy to their search for Daniel.
The bigger they are...the harder they fall. In this case, in love. And of course, the women are just loving their heroes.
Dakota Languor is fairly new to the Legendary family. In the few months he's been here, it's become home. So many of the them are finding their mates—even his best friend, Saul, who he came to Texas with. Dakota would like a family, but isn't in a hurry.
Bailey Hoskins hasn't been living since her husband died. A part of her died with him. And then—she saw something she wasn't supposed to and now someone is trying to kill her. Funny, but having someone trying to kill her has made her want to live.
The compound they live in is filled with interesting men and women. Ex-military folks who have found a new home and purpose...Legendary Security. Great story and characters.
Michael Hampton retired from the military a year ago and is happy on his ranch. Alone. Levi, someone he knew from SEALs, has approached him often, asking to join his security company. But he's out for good. Until he gets a call of a murdered friend who was undercover.
Mercy Romano is determined to find out what happened to her sister. Even if she hasn't seen her for years, she refuses to let someone get away with murder. She replaces her sister as a maid at a huge estate—and quickly finds it'll be harder than she thought to get answers.
Michael doesn't need a woman to worry about while undercover. But Mercy is stubborn and refuses to give up her mission. Great series with characters the reader has met in earlier books showing up to help in the other stories.
Tyson Morgan has just joined Legendary Security, along with his friends Michael and Jace. After a few days there, his late-wife's friend came by to help train them. For some reason, Kai thought she had to be extra tough on Tyson.
Kai had cared for Tyson before her friend married him. After two years, she hoped maybe he'd be ready to move on. Maybe even with her. Only her life is a bit of a mess right now. Some stalker has been texting her. Even with her company's tech genius'...they can't track the stalker down.
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.
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. Thank goodness for Levi and Ice and their security business to help her through this.
Cute puppies, bad...very bad, people, and romance come together to make another great, action-packed adventure for the folks connected to Legendary.
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.
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 it...you never see it.
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.
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.
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 wanted...like 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.
Dezi Arnold wouldn't mind finding a woman like his teammates at Legendary Security. Seems all of them had such great women, how could there be any left? But somehow, Ice seemed to be playing matchmaker as she sent the guys out on missions—and they returned home in love. Maybe it would happen to him.
Diamond Liechester knew about making expensive, beautiful jewelry. She didn't know about security beyond codes for her vaults and passwords on her computer. She soon found out that life was more ruthless than she could ever guess. Thankfully her friends, Levi and Ice, sent out some guys to help her out.
In the world of someone has money and we want it...Diamond falls into the category of having it. Dezi has to remember he's on a mission to protect her...and a serious mission it is. Another page-turning suspense romance with plenty of possible villains.
Vince Manoj is ready to go on a mission. So, when a call comes in from a man who believes his daughter has gone missing...Vince is ready. Ignoring Levi and Stone as they teased it was his turn to find his soulmate.
Vanessa Blanchard is mad. She wakes up bound and gagged in a ship that isn't their research vessel. Three of her team is with her, but her friend is missing. It had to be poachers...those nasty men that kill the beautiful sea turtles and steal the eggs for the fun of it...or pirates. Locked in the bottom of an old boat...things aren't looking too bright. But she's not one to sit back and quit.
The islanders aren't too helpful when the men arrive, but Legendary Security has friends all over. The kind of friends who can help with sailboats and weapons and whatever is needed in a short time. Vince has his mind on the mission...no time to realize that something more was happening when he meets the feisty scientist. Another page-turner that kept my attention from beginning to end.
“Ice” Danning. Helicopter pilot. Viking warrior. Tough. She's all of that and
more. But when it comes to getting married...she seems to be more of a coward.
Not quite pinning down the day. She loves Levi with all her heart. She's
thrilled to be engaged. So what's with her not taking that last step?
and Ice have been partners for a long time. Fighting side by side and knowing
each other so well, they can predict the next move during battle. But why won't
she choose a wedding date?
are happening around Legendary Security. And more. They are under attack. Their
own home base. But this group of warriors isn't going to stand around twiddling
their thumbs. No way. They will take the fight to the people who are after
them. More surprises are to come for this couple...and they'll be up for it. A unique
addition to the Heroes for Hire Series.
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.
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 missions...to 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.
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 well...at 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.
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.
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 previous 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.
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.
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.
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 keeps you turning the pages.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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 suspect...it'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.
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.

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 storyline. 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.
Warrick Canton has watched almost 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.
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.
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.

calls and she's in trouble...the three of them head out to England. Kanen plans

Elliott had loved her husband, Blake. Kanen had been his best friend and hers.
As things start unfolding, it brings up questions of how well she really knew
her husband. Now she was just thankful to have such a protector as Kanen and
great suspense romance with another “keeper” in the end.
Brown just returned from a mission to the UK. He had to be back for training.
One of the speakers wanted to meet with him ahead of time. He remembered her
from another conference but didn't know her. And he didn't realize he knew her
brother...until that meeting. He was missing and the woman wanted Nelson's help
in finding him.
Etchings just lost her father eight weeks earlier, and now, the only family she
had left was missing. Chris wouldn't just walk away from the navy like NCIS
figured he did. He was in trouble and she wouldn't give up on him until she
found out what was going on.
Mexico Nelson and Taylor go to search for his friend Skunk. NCIS is giving them
four days to find an answer. Nelson doesn't expect it when Elizabeth sits down
in the bar with them. Now, they have to look for her brother, avoid the local
“mafia” types, and watch out for a woman they didn't plan on. And then, there's
that “keepers” thing with anyone connected to Mason. Another SEAL adventure
with suspense, action, and romance.
Robinson just arrived home from a mission and wanted to rest. But, it seemed
that wasn't going to be happening. When his cute little neighbor lets him know

around them and he had to work to find out why before Midge became one of them.
Holloway had noticed her handsome neighbor but she was too busy coming and
going...as was he. An open door was finally the chance to meet him. And it ends
up it was a good thing, because she sure needed a SEAL on her side.
great addition to this series with nonstop action as they try to figure out why
people are being murdered and how they are connected. And of course, as a
romance is trying to bloom when they aren't finding another dead body.
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 mission...one 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.
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 there...is 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 if...like so many others connected to their team...it 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.
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.
