After twelve years of service and twice as many deployments, all Nix wanted was quiet. He'd sought the solace of the land he'd grown up on and found the peace he needed to silence the noise and figure out his next move. Nixon's stay was supposed to be temporary. He wasn't supposed to meet a feisty, head-strong woman who made his pulse race and set his body on fire. Falling in love hadn't been part of his plan. Taking a government contract to stop a homegrown terrorist group hadn't been either, but when the organization threatens to attack Philadelphia, he had no choice but to accept.
McKenna Wilson was living. Every day was the same. Raising her two teenage siblings didn't leave time for much else. Most days, she was okay with that. Then she bumped into the sexy war hero and, in an instant, her world changed. She had no idea falling for Nixon would be so dangerous. Now she was going head-to-head with the small-town's dirty sheriff who was hell-bent on ruining Nixon and avenging a fifteen-year-old grudge. She'd lost her heart, but losing her life wasn't part of the plan.
Nixon Swagger had learned a few things as a Navy SEAL—adapt, improvise, and overcome were among the many. In the middle of an inferno, so ominous even Dante wouldn't buy a ticket, Nixon must adapt to his new surroundings and overcome multiple threats before he loses the woman he loves.
What readers are saying:
"Oh my gosh did I ever love this book, and to think it’s the first in a series, so there is more to come. Nixon’s Promise is extremely well written with characters that touch the heart. What a remarkable storyline that will make you laugh, smile, hold you in it’s suspenseful grip and leave you hot and bothered all at the same time."
"If I could give 100 Stars, I would. I know that I sound like a broken record but Riley Edwards did it .... again and I'm confident to say that Ms Edwards will continue to awe me with her awesomeness."
"This original new series from Riley Edwards shows great promise. Nixon Swagger has returned to his Maryland hometown to regroup and plan his next move after 12 years in the Navy. Meeting McKenna and falling for her wasn't part of his plan, but sometimes plans need to change. This is my favorite line from the book, "Sometimes you need sacrifice what you want to do so you can do what you need to do for those you love." The characters are well developed and the story is compelling. As with any new series, I had to be patient at the beginning as series developing. Nixon's POV is written in third person and McKenna's POV is in first person. It took me until chapter 3 to really get in the groove of the changing POV, but it works well."

For justice. For country. For love.
After witnessing her friend’s sexual assault, seven-year senior Magdalena Wells escapes an attack with a few bruises and a thousand questions. As a journalist in practice, if not in pay, Mags vows to utilize the skills she mastered in the Democratic Republic of Congo and answer every single one—just as soon as she gets the hell out of town.
Law Pierce’s aim is rest and relaxation after two years undercover in South Africa on an extended Base Branch mission, but restlessness puts him in trouble’s path. As a servant of justice, Law will do everything in his power to keep trouble safe. The fact that trouble’s petite stature and luscious curves stir his every primal instinct is a massive inconvenience he struggles to ignore.
Together Magdalena and Law uncover a web of corruption and dirty lies that could set their country’s top official ablaze—if the inferno doesn’t consume them first.
"Megan Mitcham's books are well-paced, well-plotted suspense novels edged with stunning sensual intensity. Her lovers are cold and deadly--except when they are skin-to-skin. I can't wait for the next book in the series!"

Warning: This novel contains war-related torture and abuse as well as bondage-related rehabilitation and recovery from trauma.
They say a Rider in possession of a good blade must be in want of a monster to slay—and Merybourne Manor has plenty of monsters.
Passionate, headstrong Aliza Bentaine knows this all too well; she’s already lost one sister to the invading gryphons. So when Lord Merybourne hires a band of Riders to hunt down the horde, Aliza is relieved her home will soon be safe again.
Her relief is short-lived. With the arrival of the haughty and handsome dragonrider, Alastair Daired, Aliza expects a battle; what she doesn’t expect is a romantic clash of wills, pitting words and wit against the pride of an ancient house. Nor does she anticipate the mystery that follows them from Merybourne Manor, its roots running deep as the foundations of the kingdom itself, where something old and dreadful slumbers . . . something far more sinister than gryphons.
It’s a war Aliza is ill-prepared to wage, on a battlefield she’s never known before: one spanning kingdoms, class lines, and the curious nature of her own heart.
Elle Katharine White infuses elements of Austen’s beloved novel with her own brand of magic, crafting a modern epic fantasy that conjures a familiar yet wondrously unique new world.
