From USA Today Bestselling Author Kennedy Layne comes a thrilling mystery series that will leave you on the edge of your seat...  Keane Sanderson never thought he'd survive to see a day past his latest deployment with the United States Marines in Iraq. That was six years ago and he's finally ready to ease off the accelerator. A unique opportunity to work for a top-shelf security and investigations firm in Florida is right up his alley.

Ashlyn Ellis had everything she'd ever wanted--a high-profile career as a federal prosecutor, an upscale apartment in the city, and a beach house for when she needed to decompress from all the stress that accompanied the job. All three are threatened when she realizes someone has been following her every move for a very long time.

When Ashlyn comprehends the lengths her pursuer is willing to take things, she calls in a favor. She never expected her plea for assistance to materialize in the form of Keane Sanderson--the one man who had every reason to revel in her misfortune. She's finally given the chance to rekindle the flames of desire she never should have extinguished, just in time for it all to be taken away when the stalker takes his obsession a step too far.

Series Description: Safeguard Security & Investigations (SSI) is owned and operated by Townes Calvert, a retired Marine Gunnery Sergeant who returned home to the States a bit more damaged than he'd care to admit. Not that anyone could tell outside of a very select group of former active duty buddies. It had taken Townes quite a while to acclimate to civilian life and he'd kept himself busy in the interim working in treacherous situations with even more dangerous friends. The final result is a close-knit unit of highly trained former military men who have the experience to protect the innocent, investigate crimes on the gritty edge, and aid local law enforcement when justice has taken a back seat to political correctness. Follow along as Kennedy Layne conveys each of their gripping stories as they work together on investigations that lead them down perilous paths of passion, intrigue, and suspense...

Former Marine Royce Haverton had needed a break from the bloodshed he'd witnessed time and again during his last combat tour. He'd fulfilled his contract to the Corps and it was now time to move on. Little did he know the job he'd just accepted would lead him down the same violent path as before.

Cailyn Geneva had spent the last three months recovering from a brutal hit and run her family swore was intentional. Another vicious attempt on her life proves their suspicions to be true and her brother takes matters into his own hands by hiring a security firm to look after her. She agrees to do whatever it takes to stay alive...even if that means facing her past mistakes.

Royce doesn't like surprises, so walking into the office to find an old family friend desperate for a favor certainly doesn't make his morning. Neither does discovering a cold-blooded murderer is after the one woman who had once meant everything to him. Will they be given the time to explore the still smoldering desire that lies beneath the surface before a ruthless killer tries to finish what he started?

Change is coming…

Maverick Beckett took his much needed annual vacation up to Washington State to relax with his old friends from his years in the Corps.  He also had every intention of extinguishing the fires that arose between him and a certain local woman he couldn’t get out of his mind until the unthinkable happened.

Nothing is as it seems…

Henley Varano loved the simple anonymous life that her remote hometown provided.  She’d had the wealthy existence of a fashion model and the fame that came with it only to find it lonelier than she could have ever imagined.  Unfortunately, men only saw the fictitious person she appeared to be in the magazines and not the real woman she was—even the one man she’s wanted for years.

Surviving is just the beginning…

An apocalyptic event changes the course of their lives when the massive Yellowstone Caldera erupts.  Panic ensues among the small town, causing Mav and Henley to witness the best and worst of humanity.  They must work as a team to create a new existence before the fallout of harsh and fiery elements overtakes their safe haven.  Along the way, they might just find that they need each other more than ever.

Series Description:  The world as they know it is about to change.  The Yellowstone Caldera has erupted in an apocalyptic fashion, triggering simultaneous events around the world.  The one thing that will either bring society together or rip their lives apart is the need for survival as a group.  A company of former Marines will do whatever it takes to reach an area in the far recesses of northeastern Washington State, a region they feel is uniquely equipped for endurance and existence in what is left of the crumbling infrastructure of the United States.  Follow along as Kennedy Layne conveys each of their stories as these brave men and women face the harsh, fiery elements of an inevitable apocalypse while encountering passion, intrigue, and suspense…

Follow along as USA Today Bestselling Author Kennedy Layne takes you down a suspenseful path where a ruthless killer is always one step ahead...

Brody Novak has been given his first assignment for Safeguard Security & Investigations, and it has nothing to do with his lead role as a communications specialist. With the rest of the team occupied on a hunt for a serial killer, he's the only one left behind to handle what everyone thought to be an open and shut case. He should have known it wouldn't be that easy.

Remy Kinkaid has faithfully made a phone call once a month for the last four years to ensure the killer who murdered her sister remained behind bars. Every time she's been given the same answer--except today.

Brody and Remy must work together to hunt down a murderer, despite their growing attraction. It isn't safe to give in to their desires, when the killer is always one step ahead of them. It's only when he stumbles that Remy is finally given the opportunity to face her past in order to have a future.
