The traffickers have a quota and letting even one potential moneymaker go isn't in the cards. Alina is far from the only victim. On the run together, Logan and Alina race against time, no longer certain who's the hunted and who's the prey in the sordid, heartbreaking underworld they've descended into.
An expert in an otherwise male-dominated field, Angela Ainsworth has spent her life studying snow and ice in order to cope with the never-ending heartaches associated with her parents' divorce and her own fiancé's betrayal. When Anders come barreling into her life, ordering her to return home on her father's orders, she's far from impressed…and she has absolutely no intention of obeying.
Anders loves Switzerland but, given the circumstances, he'd rather be anywhere else besides here, where this stubborn beauty wants nothing to do with him or her father's political agenda she'd tried to escape long ago. Despite her attitude, and regardless of the instant attraction that flares between them, Anders has to keep Angela safe in a world more hostile than any he's ever encountered before.
A year ago, Talon walked away from his girlfriend, Clary Witcher when she'd given him an ultimatum he couldn't win. Clary is the sister of his best friend killed in the hit-and-run. Determined to tell Clary in person that her brother's death was no accident and keep her safe from those now targeting her, Talon struggles with the haunting prospect of a reunion.
Clary has never forgotten and never forgiven herself for chasing the man she loved and still loves away with her stupid, take-it-or-leave-it threat. Her brother's death is a tragedy she's barely dealt with when Talon shows up with answers that only beg more questions. He won't leave her side, certain her brother wasn't the only target. But Clary has learned one thing from her time away from him: Love--not trouble--needs to be Talon's reason for staying with her…even if sending him away means jeopardizing her own life.

SEALs of Steel Reading Order:
When a call for help comes from the father of his boss Levy's woman Ice, Harrison answers. A senator has been shot, his wife beaten and the man's kids are in the wind. With a press-conference's-worth of questions needing answers, Harrison has his job cut out for him. Unfortunately, that's not all that's expected of him. The senator's adult daughter is also missing. She's ex-military and apparently has a grudge against the world. She doesn't want to be found, and, even after Harrison locates her, she refuses to have a single blessed thing to do with him. If only he felt the same…
Zoe's on a mission that doesn't leave room in her worldview for heroes, especially a gorgeous badass warrior like Harrison, whom she considers little more than a mercenary for hire. Good thing Harrison has never been the type to take 'no' for an answer because the situation--and their relationship--has all the ingredients of a powder keg requiring one small spark to ignite it. Zoe has angered exactly the wrong people…and they're plotting to put an end to her meddling…and her…permanently.
After an operation gone wrong that laid him low, Levi's obsession to find the men who betrayed him has grown to the point where nothing else seems to matter to him anymore. Although he's physically recovered from his injuries and has started his own company, Legendary Securities, when he catches the scent of the last man on his most-wanted list, he becomes a missile locked on his target. The very man he's hunting is hunting him as well…and fully intends to finish the job he started by taking Levi out once and for all.
For every step of Levi's journey toward rebuilding his life, Ice has been there for him. The places where she can't join him--where he won't allow her inside--are the hardest ones to reconcile because she knows their relationship has reached an impasse. One wrong word, one false step may mean the last kiss for them…and ultimately the end of the road for all her hopes and dreams.
Just as Levi has been at a standstill, waiting to get his final revenge, Ice can't resolve the heart of her conflicts until the monster that nearly destroyed their world is brought down for good. But the killer isn't just targeting Levi anymore. If she and Levi don't move fast, their future--whether separate or together--will be forfeit.
Kasha has worked for Bullard for five years. She's familiar with most of those who work for Legendary as well.

Accident or a deal gone horribly wrong, it seems Bullard was running guns and now his newest holding is under attack.
Their emotions, heightened by danger, run hot as Brandon positions himself instinctively at Kasha’s side--which is exactly where he hopes to be permanently if they can just find a way out of this rapidly escalating mess.
