Master Sergeant Misty Beachy commanded Marines in a war zone. She might not look the part, but her men took her orders and respected her. The only thorn in her side was Major Jack Hawk, close air support pilot. He didn't like women in combat, but he saved her unit from a deadly ambush. Misty has found a niche in civilian life training sniffer dogs for Customs. Then prickly Jack Hawk, the one man who never fails to get under her skin, returns. Now she can't stop thinking about him, even though she's certain she can't stand him. Well, almost certain...
Jack Hawk doesn't have time for a woman in his life right now. Especially not one he can’t figure out. He already has his hands full with his rebellious teenage daughter and a move to civilian life. Even though Misty seems to despise him, he can't deny the connection between them. If only he hadn't kissed her, because no matter how hard he tries, he can't get her out of his mind. But his daughter's antics may just derail everything before their relationship can even begin.

When her soulmate and husband of many years suddenly died, she'd come home after a long day at work and write. Writing allowed her to pour out all the loss and sadness. Then, the more she wrote, the more she realized life would go on. She had a lot of living to do, and love stories to tell.
She's now published five Romance novels and is featured in three anthologies of short stories. But her first two manuscripts still reside on a CD somewhere in the house. She can't bear to erase them because they're loved, and like a crazy relative one hides in the attic, they reside in a quiet, safe place.
Single dad and wounded warrior, Dwayne Dempsey, has no idea what he’s bargained for when he signs a construction contract with the curvy Marla Danaher to honcho her condo conversion. The last thing he needs is a sexy property developer breathing down his neck every step of the project. Her strong-minded bossiness should turn him off, but oddly, only makes her more desirable to him.
Marla Danaher has no time for dates, flirting, or marriage. She leaves that up to her twin sister, Charlene. Building a solid financial future and determining her own destiny are her top priorities. Unfortunately, the former Marine running the construction project she's poured everything into only complicates everything. His teasing sexual innuendos drive her to distraction, and she can't ignore his raw physical strength and masculinity. They’re on each other's nerves day in and day out, but that does nothing to diminish their strong attraction sparking between them. Too bad love scares them both.
When the mother of Dwayne's daughter suddenly reappears, things take a nasty turn as she fights for sole custody of the child she'd abandoned. There's no way he's giving up his daughter, but when a series of break-ins and threats begin, his protective side flares to life. How can he protect those he cares for most without driving them away?
