About the author

Kennedy Layne--USA Today Bestselling Author

First and foremost, I love life. I love that I'm a wife, mother, daughter, sister...and a writer.

I am one of the lucky women in this world who gets to do what makes them happy. As long as I have a cup of coffee (maybe two or three) and my laptop, the stories evolve themselves and I try to do them justice. I draw my inspiration from a retired Marine Master Sergeant that swept me off of my feet and has drawn me into a world that fulfills all of my deepest and darkest desires. Smoldering romance, military men, intrigue, with a little bit of kinky chili pepper (his recipe), fill my head and there is nothing more satisfying than making the hero and heroine fulfill their destinies.

Thank you for having joined me on their journeys...

Dreams die...

Daegan Murphy lives life the way it's meant to be lived...not a care in the world. With his motorcycle, sniper rifle, and career choice, some might think he has a death wish. But he's got a family who loves him, team members that count on him, and hostages to rescue.

Risking everything… 


Aaron “Stick” Scott spent twelve years of his life protecting his country. He diffused well over fifteen hundred bombs during the course of his military career, expecting each one to be his last. Luck had a huge part in his survival but it was fate that had a laugh at his expense by having a woman shatter his heart. 

Playing it safe… 

Simone Laurent’s career as a cultural attaché wasn’t exciting by any means, but she did love promoting the culture of her homeland. What she hadn’t anticipated was getting caught up in political war where her life would be at risk. Her situation goes from bad to worse when the man she left behind is the only one who can save her. 

Igniting Passion… 

Stick’s hostage rescue mission becomes sidetracked when he’s ordered to protect the one woman who couldn’t handle his job. Seeing her in the light of day brings back memories they’d both rather soon forget, but it’s the long evenings together that lights a fuse neither one can ignore. Will their reignited passion survive the highly explosive danger that’s coming their way?

An unforgettable mission hits close to home in this continuation of the Red Starr series by USA Today Bestselling Author Kennedy Layne...

John "Trigger" Dixon returned to his small hometown in rural Mississippi as a favor to an old high school friend. It was meant to be a quick trip, with a short visit to his parents and an afternoon spent spoiling his two nephews. He should have known his vacation wouldn't go as planned. The rebel in him always got in the way.

Devyn Wilde had lived up to her surname according to the townsfolk--at least by reputation. She'd never let it bother her before, but she'd finally had enough after she was brought in for questioning by the police for her brother's murder. How could anyone believe that she would forsake her family? In the south, family comes before anyone or anything.

Trigger had last seen Devyn right before he'd joined the Red Starr Hostage Rescue Team, both of them agreeing to end their casual relationship. After all, it had been a temporary diversion--friends with benefits. He hadn't expected to find that she was a suspect in a homicide investigation, secretly investigating her brother's mysterious murder. Their sweet passion returns full force despite the danger, but keeping an old promise might just cost him his life.

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…
