Excerpt:

They’d only walked a short distance when he decided it was silly to pretend like they weren’t both there.

“What do you do for a living, Ivy?”

He glanced at her over his shoulder, saw her reticence in responding.

“I’m just curious. I don’t have any plans to continue stalking you once this hike is over.”

She sighed. “I’m a vet. Work at the pet clinic in West Yellowstone.”

“Is that right? Take care of kittens and puppies?” He hadn’t meant that as an insult, but the way she crinkled her nose proved she’d taken it as such.

“I’m not saying that’s a bad thing at all,” he hastened to explain. James was a huge fan of both types of pets. Probably because they had a couple big dogs at the ranch and at least half a dozen barn cats at any given time.

Ivy shrugged. “I know. It’s just not where I plan to end up. This is a short-term gig. I specialized in school. My field of study was large-animal care.”

James stopped walking, and Ivy was almost next to him before she realized. She pulled up short. “You mean like horses and cattle?”

She nodded. “Yeah. I love horses.”

A big smile split his face. “So do I. My family owns a ranch in Compton Pass, Wyoming.”

Her face brightened. “I know where that is. Saw the exit for it after every holiday when I drove back to college.”

“Oh yeah. Must mean you went to Colorado State. We’re on the way.”

“Yeah. Always wanted to stop in Compton Pass. Seems like a really nice place.”

RELEASE BLITZ ~ Think Ice (Sleeper SEALs Book #7) by Maryann Jordan

Thin Ice

Sleeper SEALs Book 7

Maryann Jordan


Release Date Nov. 28, 2017

Blurb:

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 U.S. soil.

Logan (Preacher) Bishop, retired Navy SEAL, flew tourists on helicopter rides over the mountains of Montana and occasionally rescued skiers from snowy slopes. With the threat of terrorists developing means of biological warfare, he jumped at the chance to run a mission in Alaska, monitoring the activities of a newly established ISIS cell.

Vivian Sanders, a biologist with the Department of Homeland Security, was tasked with finding out what the terrorists were creating. Assigned to work with an agent on a cell in Alaska, she was stunned to find she was being paired with a security specialist and he knew nothing about their cover—living next door to the terrorists and pretending to be married.

Precise in his planning and executions of missions, the impulsive Viv drove Logan to distraction and of all his missions, he was certain this one would fail. Learning to work together, Logan and Viv discover opposites do attract. But the secret Logan carries—how he is to finish the mission—is one he is afraid she won’t be able to accept.

When the chemicals created by the terrorists next door threatened to be tested on a small town in Alaska, they fight to survive…both hoping their love survives the battle as well.

** Logan Bishop was first introduced in the Saints Protection & Investigation Series (Surviving Love). This book is in the “Sleeper SEAL” connected series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

Each book in this multi-author branded series is a standalone novel, and the series does not have to be read in order.

****Due to scenes of an explicit sexual nature and language that some consider crude, please be warned – for 18+ only! If you do not like alphas with heart who fall in love with strong female characters while dealing with real life issues…again be warned!!*****

Excerpt:

“Can you take us higher? I want to get a picture of the very top.”

“Oh, honey, no. I feel like puking as it is.”

Logan Bishop heard the request and subsequent whining clearly, even with his headphones covering his ears, but pretended not to. It was easier that way. He maneuvered his H10, light single-engine helicopter, along his regular tourist path, ignoring the special requests coming from the back. Sometimes he deviated…depending on the passengers and his mood. But today, the monotony of the tourist season was getting on his last nerve, and playing nice was not part of the service.

Circling around the mountains of the Glacier National Park in Montana once more, Logan appreciated the view of snow-capped mountains, thick with green forests. The predominately coniferous woodlands of pine, fir, and spruce gave the vista its continuous color, while the lower elevations were covered in cottonwoods and aspens, which lost their leaves with the changing seasons. The park, considered the Crown of the Continent Ecosystem, was originally inhabited by Native Americans and was home to hundreds of species of animals. With over a million acres, including two mountain ranges and over one hundred lakes, the tourists wanting to experience the park from above the ground kept him in business.

Making another pass before dipping near a crystal clear lake, he decided the couple in the back seats was more interested in the photographs than any history, so he continued to keep his mouth shut as they chattered amongst themselves.

As he began the flight back over the Blackfeet Indian Reservation, which the Blackfeet have inhabited for over ten thousand years, he heard an audible huff behind him.

“Look at all this good real estate going to waste here for a bunch of Indians.”

“Native Americans,” came the response from the woman. “That’s what you say now. It’s politically correct.”

The other passenger pinched his lips before snapping, “Well, excuse me, Dorothy, if I ain’t all PC and shit.”

With a quick glance behind him, Logan could see their interest had waned so he made a straight trip back to the landing pad outside Cut Bank, Montana, circling over the small town right on the edge of a steep bank leading down to a river. He had knocked off about fifteen minutes on their tour but figured it was due him for having to listen to their bickering.

RELEASE BLITZ ~ Silent Knight (Deep Six Security Christmas) by Becky McGraw


Silent Knight
Deep Six Security Christmas
Becky McGraw

Release Date Nov. 21, 2017


Thomas Griffin never thought he’d be a homeless vet at forty-six years old. But when he was no longer useful to the government he’d spent his life serving, they turned their back on him when he needed them most, costing him everything he ever loved. After that, he really didn’t care. Living his life on the fringe was safe and he didn’t have to worry about anything except his next meal. That safety remains until a beautiful socialite decides to come slumming for Thanksgiving on the wrong side of town and gets herself into trouble.

Over her fifty-five years of life, Lou Ellen Wells had received many blessings. To pay them forward and honor the men in her life who served her country, both living and dead, she cooked Thanksgiving Dinner at the Dallas Veteran’s Services Center every year. It was located in a bad part of town, but she’d never had a problem, until this year when she’s brutally attacked and can’t get to her gun. A bedraggled man with piercing blue eyes jumps to her rescue and saves her with moves out of an action movie. She gives him her card and offers him help, but he tells her doesn’t need saving and takes off like his tail is on fire.

A couple of weeks later, Lou is surprised when the man calls her asking for help of a different kind. A teenage girl he cares about has gone missing in gang territory. He’s afraid she’ll get killed if he doesn’t find her soon. Lou calls in the team to help him, but her price for that help is finding out why her Silent Knight, who is obviously skilled and educated, chooses to be homeless.

But will satisfying her curiosity about Thomas Griffin put her in the crosshairs of a terrorist group even more dangerous than MS-13?

BLP REVIEW ~ Tracy

I really enjoyed Silent Knight more so because we got to see more of Lou Ellen and she got her own kinda happy when she’s usually the one watching the guys in the Deep Six team settle.

Lou Ellen is a really strong, take no nonsense lady who does her bit to help others in need. She meets Griff one night after an annual event and he becomes more important to her than she could have expected from their brief time together. 

Griff is a veteran who is struggling adapting to ‘normal’ life and is living on the streets to stay off the radar. There’s more to this silent knight than meets the eye and even though he’s determined to forget he met ‘Queenie’ he unexpectedly finds himself in need of help and she’s the one he turns to. 

I loved the fact that the characters were that bit older and had both lived (not always an easy) life. The both deserved another chance to be happy and together they clicked. Lou Ellen was as determined and bloody-minded as Griff and while it was sad, I’m glad she stood her ground when push came to shove for her and her little family. 

The story had the action, suspense, intensity and twists & turns you’d expect with one of Becky McGraw‘s Deep Six Security books. A quick, engaging, entertaining read and another good addition to the series. 

I’m giving Silent Knight 4

When the hidden truth is finally exposed, will it tear a family apart, or heal past wounds?

Amazon Kindle


Excerpt:

 Before Thanksgiving, Renie had talked Ben and the rest of the guys in CB Rice into playing at the Goat that night. The bar, owned by the Rice family, was an institution on Elk Avenue, the main drag in Crested Butte.

With Tucker gone, the mood was subdued.

Her dad sat in on a couple of songs, and when he wasn’t, he danced with Blythe.

“My turn.” Jace tapped her father on the shoulder. Mark stepped aside, and Jace wrapped his arm around her waist, pulling her in, close to him. He rested his cheek against her hair and breathed in the scent of her.

“I’m sorry about today.”

“Why are you sorry?”

“Tucker…”

“Again, why are you sorry? Tucker was the one who disappeared without saying goodbye.”

He didn’t know what to say. He understood how Tucker was feeling, more than he wanted to. The guilt began to creep in again.

“Jace, are you okay?”

He knew she could feel the tension that was slowly spreading throughout his body. He’d hoped holding her would stop it from happening this time.

“Yeah, I’m okay.”

She pulled back so she could look in his eyes, but he didn’t want her to. Not tonight.

“Let me hold you, Blythe.” He wrapped his arm around her waist a little tighter. He felt her breath catch as much as he heard it.

“It must be bad, whatever it is.”

He couldn’t answer her, but yes, it was bad.

The rest of the band took a break, but Ben stayed where he was, just him and his guitar. Every word he sang cut into Jace’s heart. It was as if Ben knew what had happened, but Jace knew that wasn’t possible. Nobody knew but him. Not even Tucker.

So don’t fall in love, there’s just too much to lose

If you’re given the choice, then I beg you to choose

To walk away, walk away, don’t let her get you.

I can’t bear to see the same happen to you.

Please, don’t be sad now, I really believe,

She was the greatest thing that happened to me.

Rescuing Bryn
Delta Force Heroes Book 6
Susan Stoker

Release Date Oct. 10, 2017

 

Blurb:

When you’re a Delta Force soldier, you see a lot. Often too much. But nothing can ever prepare you to see your entire team die before your eyes…

The loss of his Delta brothers–and his arm–has Dane “Fish” Munroe still struggling months later. He’s moved to Idaho, where an isolated lifestyle is making things worse, not better. Not that there’s anyone left to care.

Actually, Bryn Hartwell cares. In fact, she tries to surreptitiously make life just a little easier for the mysterious man who comes into the grocery where she works late at night, only to get a tongue lashing for her trouble. Still, he’s obviously hurting; someone has to worry about him, spurring Bryn to nurse Dane when he hits a particularly low point.

Intrigued by the quirky, kind, socially awkward woman, Dane allows himself to get close to someone for the first time in ages. A potentially epic mistake–because when her interest in the prepper lifestyle puts Bryn in the hands of a homegrown terrorist, losing her could put Dane’s mental recovery permanently out of reach.

But once a Delta, always a Delta. And there’s a team in Texas ready to have Dane’s back at a moment’s notice.

**Rescuing Bryn is the 6th book in the Delta Force Heroes Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

The Secret
Butler Ranch Book 3

Release Date October 16, 2017

Blurb:


Can Naughton Butler risk letting Bradley Saint John into his heart, or will his brother’s secret ruin his one shot at love?

Naughton Butler is a loner, partially by choice, but also because the secret his dead brother left with him could tear his life apart. When he and his brother Maddox inherit four hundred acres of prime vineyard property, they must decide how to manage Butler Ranch Winery, along with starting a new winery on Demetria Estate.

The solution is to hire the new kick-ass, hotter-than-all-get-out, winemaker who just landed on the Central Coast. When Naughton meets Bradley St. John, he’s expecting a man—and she is anything but. Thinking it’s a joke, he refuses to take her seriously. Bradley leaves, forcing him to follow and apologize. He watches as she makes her way through the vineyards, she was born to them, just like he was.

Getting a job with Butler Ranch Winery right out of college, is more than Bradley could’ve dreamed of. When Maddox Butler interviews her for the position, he warns her that Naughton could be difficult, but once he recognized her abilities, he’d back off. The burning question now was, would she want him to?

Naughton can’t stay away from her, even knowing being with her is impossible.

The Secret – Excerpt

Naughton, the dark and broody Butler brother, has always been the loner of the family. Like his oldest brother, Kade, Naughton keeps his feelings to himself. He doesn’t talk unless he has something he deems important enough to say—until he meets the new kick-ass, hotter-than-all-get-out, winemaker who just landed on the Central Coast. When Naughton meets Bradley St. John, he’s expecting a man—and she is anything but.
The Secret is the third book in the series set at Butler Ranch in the hills of California wine country—where winemaking, lovemaking and mischief-making abound.

He was done waiting for her to make the first move to talk to him. Maddox thought; he and Bradley had a lot to discuss, and he told his brother so. Especially now. If what the marshal believed was true, everyone in the valley needed to be on high alert.
“Come with me.”
“I can’t. I mean, Maddox—”
“He knows you’re leaving.”
“Are you firing me?”
Naughton stopped so abruptly, Bradley almost ran into him. He spun around and faced her. “Why in God’s name would you think you were being fired?”
Bradley chewed at her fingernails, and Naughton gripped her wrist.
“You’re trembling. What’s going on?”
“Alex told me, you know, about the fire.”
“Good. I mean, I’m glad you know.”
“I’m so sorry…”
She looked as though she had more to say, so Naughton waited. He let go of her wrist and pulled her to him, soothing tears that turned into something worse. Bradley’s body shook against his.
“Hey, now,” he said, pulling back to get her to look at him. “Come on, let’s get out of here.”
He took her hand and she followed, but her shaking didn’t stop. “Where are we going?” she asked.
“For a ride.”
“I told you, I’m not a horse person.”
“Not that kind of ride.”
He stopped in front of the barn, punched his code into his phone, and waited while the doors swung open.
“Here,” he said, handing her a helmet. “Put this on.”
“There’s something I need to tell you, Naughton.”
“Yeah? There’s something I need to tell you too, and both can wait.”
Bradley looked at the helmet, and then at him. “I’m not a motorcycle person either.”
“You will be.” he said, taking the helmet from her hands and putting it on her head. He adjusted the chin strap, and then put his hands on her shoulders. “Wiggle it around a little. Is it comfortable?”
When she nodded, he put on his own helmet and started the bike. “Get on.”
For a minute he didn’t think she was going to, but then she rested her hand on his shoulder and threw her leg over.
“Scoot closer and put your feet on those pegs,” he said, pointing behind him.
She moved a little closer and rested her feet where he told her to. “Put your arms around my waist.” She had to move closer to do so, and when she did, she was right where he wanted her. It may not have been the best idea to get her on the bike when she was upset, but riding always helped him get out of his head. Maybe it would do the same for her.
“Ready?”
She nodded, and Naughton eased the bike out through the barn door and onto the ranch’s main drive.
“Hold on tight,” he said when they reached Adelaida Trail. “If I lean, go with me, okay?”

Once Upon a Ghost
Murder by Design Book 3
Erin McCarthy


Release Date: October 10, 2017

Blurb

With Bailey Burke’s design and staging business booming- it turns out tangling with a serial killer is the best advertising ever- she has no time to lament her lack of love life, or wonder where her dead friend Ryan’s ghost has gone. She hasn’t seen him in months, but when she finds a body in a home she’s been hired to stage she’s hounded by the dead man’s ghost.

Having been a medium before, this guy is by far the most irritating ghost she’s ever met, with his constant need to talk over her and flick pennies at her head. Without Ryan to guide her, she’s on her own to figure out what the dead man needs from her. On top of all that, cop Jake Marner is back in her life, ostensibly to protect her, but mostly to confuse her as to whether they are dating or not. 

Before she can say “Put It Where?” Bailey finds herself immersed in mob dealings, the secret world of male-only sweat baths, and double dealings. When another body turns up, there is no doubt that she’s in over her head, again.

RELEASE TOUR ~ Slow Ride (Sleeper SEALs, #2) by Becky McGraw

       

Slow Ride
Sleeper SEALs, Book 2
Becky McGraw

Release Date Sept 26, 2017

 

Blurb:

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?

Book Loving Pixies ~ Exclusive Excerpt

“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.”

NEW RELEASE ~ Heaven on Earth (Compass Boys #1) by Mari Carr & Jayne Rylon

 

Heaven on Earth
Compass Boys Book 1
by Mari Carr & Jayne Rylon

Date of Publication: September 5, 2017


Blurb:

A brand new, never before released standalone story in the Compass saga from New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors Jayne Rylon and Mari Carr.

Austin Compton has struggled to live up to the Compass legacy his entire life, afraid of disappointing his overachieving family. After dropping out of college, he convinced his parents to buy a big rig and let him contribute to the Compass Ranch in his own way.

On the open road he discovers a happy medium between the freedom he craves and the obligation that comes along with the Compton name. When he picks up some unexpected cargo in the form of a gorgeous if battered stowaway, he’s in trouble. The same reckless urges that convinced him to abandon his education are telling him to keep Hayden close and safe, maybe even teach her how to love again after the disastrous relationship she’s fleeing.

When troubled times fall on Compass Ranch, Hayden will do anything to repay the kindness Austin and his family showed her. It’s time to support Austin like he’s done for her, if her past doesn’t catch up with her at exactly the wrong moment.
