Sleeper SEALs, Book 2
Release Date Sept 26, 2017
The Sleeper SEALs are former U.S. Navy SEALs recruited by a new CIA counter-terror division to handle solo dark ops missions to combat terrorism on US soil.
Lt. Commander Keegan MacDonald has to face the fact his injury meant he was washed up as a SEAL, but who was he without the teams as part of his life? Even though he loved bikes, being a grease monkey at his uncle’s motorcycle shop sure wasn’t providing that answer.
When he gets a call for a special mission from the commander of a spec ops government contractor group, Keegan grabs onto the lifeline with both hands. Not only would he be helping find an intel leak which could jeopardize his teammates in the field, he might be able to find his own purpose during the mission too.
Keegan goes undercover at the Lily Pad, an off-base strip club where the government believes the special access intel is being passed, and quickly narrows down his suspects. The list includes Jules Lawson, a sexy, mouthy waitress who seems to have a hidden agenda.
When that agenda meshes with his own, and he finds out they are on the same team, but at opposite ends of the field, can they put together a partnership? Or will her inexperience and thirst for vengeance get them both killed?
Better yet, when the mission creeps into something much bigger than an intel leak, could he count on the beautiful agent to have his six while they saved the world? Or would she redefine his world in the process?

“Are you gay?” she asked rather loudly, her eyes widening.
“No, I’m not gay,” He growled, his face flushing as he looked around the restaurant.
“So why are you off of women, then?” she asked, folding her arms on the table.
“I’m just tired of the game playing that comes along with your kind and have bigger things to worry about at the moment,” he replied, glaring at her.
After the boyfriends she’d had, Jules could definitely understand his mindset. She’d decided to take a break from men too. Keegan MacDonald was the first man who’d piqued her interest in in a long time, and it figured he’d be on her suspect list.
That’s the way things worked in her life.
“What did the woman who put you off of women do to get you kicked off the teams?” You can either tell me, or I can find out the hard way through Brand.
“None of your business,” he grated, then fired another question at her. “How do you know those self-defense moves and why are you carrying a pistol inside a bar?”
It looked like they had reached a stalemate in their cross-examination. This man who was used to holding information close to his broad, muscular chest would be a tough nut to crack and she was too tired to break out her hammer. But damned if she didn’t want to.
“None of your business,” she replied, giving him a tight smile as she adopted a sing-song airhead voice. “Okay then—what shall we talk about now? Read any good books lately? What’s your favorite TV show?”
“I don’t watch television and I haven’t had time to read a book in years, other than training manuals.” He shoved a hand through his thick, dark hair. “Let’s just cut to the chase, Jules—” He stopped and studied her face for a long minute, then sighed as the waitress appeared at the table with their food.
He leaned back so she could place his heaping platter of steaming scrambled eggs, hashbrowns and half-dollar-size pancakes in front of him. She put Jules’ platter of over-medium eggs and toast down in front of her then left.
Instead of picking up his fork, though, Keegan glared at her. “We can do this one of two ways. You can tell me what you’re doing in that bar with a pistol, or I can tell Frank that you have it and you can explain it to him and the police.”
Jules chewed the inside of her cheek for a second to calm down, then slid to the edge of the booth. This arrogant bastard was going to do what he’d do and nothing she said would stop him. This conversation was over, but the battle had just begun. She would find out what she needed to know about him the hard way.
“Those threats of yours might have worked on those kids in the bar tonight, but I can assure you they won’t work on me,” she said as she stood. “I’ll carry my protection anywhere I see fit—so tell who you need to tell, MacDonald. Just do your job so I don’t have to use it.”
