"A fun, fast-paced romantic adventure that’s the perfect summer beach read. Sophie and Jimmy will steal your heart as they fight to save the day and each other. If you liked Romancing the Stone or The Jewel of the Nile, you’ll LOVE Rum Runner!" -- Traci Douglass, USA Today Bestselling Author of The Blood Ravagers Series


English socialite Sophie Davies-Stone has been longing to meet her father since she was a little girl. When he sends her a mysterious medallion and asks her to forward it to him in Miami, she can’t help herself from doing something totally un-Sophie-like. Rather than mailing it as instructed, Sophie hops on a flight to Florida.

But the family reunion never happens. Instead, Sophie is attacked and almost kidnapped by her father’s enemies. Her savior is Jimmy Panama, a cocky and annoyingly handsome former Navy SEAL. Sophie isn’t the only one who’s annoyed. After years of trying to find a way to pay back his CO, Jimmy never thought his debt would get him mixed up with his commander’s uptight, British daughter. He just wants to put her on the next flight home and get back to his low-stress life in Key West, but fate has other plans.

As Sophie and Jimmy embark on a heart-pounding adventure through Key West and the Caribbean, Sophie finds herself falling for the snarky American. Still, her head says Jimmy is all wrong for her, and the more she finds out about him – and her father – the more uncertain she is about who she can trust.

One thing is clear. Sophie is in way over her head, and her greatest adventure might be her last.

Troubles are piling up for Molly MacBain. Between navigating the moods of an increasingly sassy teenage daughter, grappling with money problems, and dealing with her daughter’s deadbeat dad, Molly doesn't need any more stress in her life. Her best friend’s wedding should be a welcome chance to relax, but Molly’s dismayed to discover her friend’s new brother-in-law is her idol—country music superstar Anders Ostergaard. After spending years on the country music circuit herself, Molly can't help but have a fangirl moment when she meets Anders in real life.

Anders flies to Key West to attend his brother’s wedding and keep a low profile after a Vegas tragedy plasters his face to the cover of every tabloid. He has strict rules about getting involved with fans, but with her sharp wit and refreshing openness, Molly draws him in like no one has before, even as the shadow of his recent scandal stalks closer.

Their flirtation is put on hold when Molly’s daughter witnesses a murder and winds up in Jamaica. Anders offers Molly his private plane, and together they race for Montego Bay, dodging the hit man who's hell-bent on eliminating everyone who knows of his crimes.

When danger and proximity spark a blazing romance, Molly can't help wondering about the future. Can a fan and her idol build a lasting love? Or is their relationship just a fling fueled by the sultry Caribbean breeze? And most importantly—can she survive long enough to find out?

 Red Team Boxed Set, Volume 1, is a complete collection of the first three sexy romantic suspense stories in the series--a combined page count of over 1100 pages, including:
1) The Edge of Courage

Haunted by memories he cannot reach, stalked by an enemy bent on revenge . . .

Rocco Silas has come home to Wyoming after long years as a Red Team operative in Afghanistan. It isn't easy returning to civilian life, especially burdened as he is with a staggering case of PTSD or hunted as he is by an enemy determined to seek an eye-for-eye--neither of which can he battle until he confronts the truth of what happened one fateful day in the high mountain ranges of the Hindu Kush.

. . . She alone holds the key to his sanity.

Mandy Fielding's dream of opening a therapeutic riding center on her family's ranch is almost within her grasp--until she hires Rocco Silas, a dangerous ex-Spec Ops friend of her brother's. His haunted eyes and passionate touch promise a love she never dared believe possible. Can they confront the truth of his past and build a future together or will the enemy stalking him destroy them both?

2) Shattered Valor
A turf war with a ruthless prison gang, their terrorist allies, and the hunters tracking them--and she's caught in the middle... 
Eden Miller has her life arranged exactly as she wants it--until a reunion with her high school BFFs brings her face to face with a veteran who's a hot mess and a magnet for trouble. Now her every move draws her deeper into the danger surrounding Ty Bladen, but his seductive charm and engaging smile make her believe his promises of protection.

A secret is a dangerous thing...
When terrorists infiltrate Ty's remote ranch in Wyoming, he learns the past he buried won't be so easily escaped. Though recovering from a bullet wound he received in Afghanistan and hunted by an unseen enemy, he knows he can't leave Eden alone to face the danger swirling around her, danger he and his team have brought to her--even if he has to risk letting her near his frozen heart. 
 
He just has to make sure she never learns his terrible secret, or he'll lose his one shot at paradise.

3) Honor Unraveled
Love Isn't a Battle...
Kit Bolanger, ex-spec ops soldier, has followed the trail of an international drug lord back to his childhood town, the one place he swore never to return. He and his team of terrorist hunters are the only thing standing between the town's residents and the evil threatening them. It doesn't help to know that she's here--the woman who betrayed his trust and shredded his heart. 

...It's a War and He's Offering No Quarter
Deciding to put roots down, Ivy Banks has brought her daughter home to the sleepy ranching community of Wolf Creek Bend, Wyoming--the one place where she was certain she'd never run into her high school flame. But he's back, fighting a global enemy and homegrown terrorists in a hidden war that puts their lives and their hearts in jeopardy. He was bad news in high school, and he's even worse news now. 

Surrendering to him is not an option...but it's the only thing he'll accept.

When April Linus discovers she's pregnant, the pampered hotel heiress walks away from her trust fund to protect her child and the identity of her baby daddy from her criminal father. But single motherhood isn't easy. Keeping her secrets stowed away tightly, she navigates through some rough seas alone and manages to build a new life for herself. Now, two men from her past are back in Key West wanting to rock the boat...

One wants to rekindle their high school romance.

The other wants to put her father in prison.

Black Ops operative Jonas Ostergaard made a nearly fatal mistake four years ago. He let April distract him from his mission. After working his way into her father's circle of trust, Jonas was yanked off the job by his superiors and reassigned. Now he's back to finish what he started, even if that means having to work up close and personal with the one woman who has the power to bring him to his knees.

When Jonas persuades April to help him stop her father from selling a dangerous new technology to a corrupt foreign government, they end up on the run dodging arms dealers in the steamy Amazon rain forest. They quickly learn that together, they can fight anything except for their smoldering attraction to each other.

But April starts to wonder what kind of relationship she could have with a man who may have more secrets that she has. Jonas disappeared on her once, what's to stop him from doing it again?

One thing she knows for certain, none of it will matter if they don't get out of the jungle alive.

When Badger Horley, a SEAL, and the rest of his eight-man unit hit an antitank landmine on a routine reconnaissance mission, all were badly injured, but one of his men died. Having only joined a year before, he'd been the youngest member of the squad. Mouse left behind unanswered questions about his life…along with seven team members who aim to see that his tragic death is brought home to those responsible.

 Badger's path back to health is a long and difficult one, but revenge drives him out of bed every single day of his life. Someone modified orders the morning of the incident, sending his unit straight over that landmine. At the time the altered route had been given to him, he'd been curious but not unduly concerned. What happened to his squad has brought unwavering clarity: Those last-minute changes and the explosion that shattered his team were deliberate--and he means to catch the perpetrator if it's the last thing he ever does.

 Kat Greenwald watches the man she's falling in love with fester a little more each time they're together. Refusing to give himself time to heal, not surprisingly he hasn't taken to his prosthetic well. As a prosthetic designer, she's dealt with men and women in endless physical and emotional states. Badger is different. He's driven, determined and deadly, but she can't help her feelings despite the negatives. She's hooked on a man whose sole concern seems to be in getting retribution for the incident that left his team in shards…while all she wants is a future happily-ever-after with him. Kat has a long road ahead of her to convince Badger a life filled with love is always preferable to answers that can only be gained at the risk of dying to get them.
