Erienne Stuart is on a mission, and her plan to seduce a sexy stranger is working out better than she’d hoped. Fitz is hot, charming, and just the right bad boy she was looking for to help tear down her very personal roadblock. But her night of seduction takes a chilling turn when she becomes the pawn of the ruthless enemies who want Fitz dead, and they won’t think twice about killing her to extract their revenge. Much as she now wishes she never laid eyes on Fitz, he’s her only chance for survival.
He’d wanted to savor every inch of her body. Now he needs to save her life.
OASIS operative and former Navy SEAL Mordecai “Fitz” Fitzjames should have known it wasn’t meant to be with the blonde goddess who’d practically fallen into his lap. The minute Erienne walked into the local biker bar, he’d known she was both out of her depth and out of his league. But that didn’t mean he couldn’t take her for the walk on the wild side she’d come looking for. His plans for a single night of passion are obliterated when the vicious drug lord he’s investigating snatches Erienne, forcing Fitz to become her bodyguard instead of her lover. Knowing it’s his fault she’s in this lethal mess, he will lay down his life to save hers.

OASIS is an elite private security team mainly comprised of former Navy SEALs, each of whom is some crazy combination of rugged, sensitive, opinionated, flawed, caring, and stubborn. But what they all are is smokin’ hot, and determined to do the right thing by helping those who need it. These stories feature strong, feisty heroines who are more than capable of taking on the bad-ass former Navy SEALs they fall for. Together they battle some pretty nasty and formidable villains.
