Opening lines: Jason retreated to the padded room inside his head, making the place extra-warm this time, adding blankets and all kinds of cushions in “hot” colors, like red and orange. Not that he was cold. He had been, earlier, but now he was…away…inside his brain-room.
“Wow. After reading this book, I want to go hug a SEAL. I think the best part is the appeal to many different types of readers. There is friendship, hardship, military action…hot sex, and of course an HEA that fits!”
~ Fan review
The only two survivors of a helicopter crash on Pakistani soil, Lieutenant Commander Jason “Casanova” Vanderby and Petty Officer Shane “Mad Dog” Madden barely escape the smoking wreckage of their helo and hike to a nearby aid station for help. The head doctor, Farrin Barr, has recently evacuated all staff from the facility, leaving her alone to deal with the two military men…and the terrorist horde hunting them.
Chased across northern Pakistan in a race for their lives, Jason and Farrin end up running from their own personal demons as much as from the enemy pursuing them. For Jason, being around his childhood friend, Shane, awakens unwelcome memories of an abusive past, while Farrin is haunted by a decision she made that forever changed her life.
In the midst of the chaos, both mental and physical, no one is more surprised by the attraction forming between Jason and Farrin than they are. Both have lived their lives closed off to relationships, unable to let go of the memories that haunt them. But just when they find the courage to move forward together, people from both of their pasts come back and threaten to destroy the new foundations of their love.

Meanwhile, her own attempts at romance play out as bizarre comedies rather than love stories, and she's starting to think Prince Charming either fell off his horse or got eaten by a dragon. When unresolved issues from Tyler's past complicate things even further, she discovers she may yet have some things to figure out before she can find her own happy ending.
This delightful first book in the Tales Behind the Veils series chronicles Tyler's wacky misadventures, both personal and professional. Whether she's getting insane requests from brides or outlandish requests on dates, you're sure to be charmed and entertained by the Diary of a Single Wedding Planner.
In her job as a wedding planner, Tyler has grown accustomed to dealing with demanding brides and their challenging family members. But nothing in her career prepared her for dealing with the most difficult Mother of the Bride she's ever encountered--her own mama. It doesn't take long for Tyler to decide her best wedding option may be to elope.
The third volume in the Tales Behind the Veils series follows Tyler's hilarious efforts to rein in Mama as they both plan the same wedding with very different visions. It's enough to make an engaged wedding planner feel sympathy for bridezillas, even as she struggles not to become one.
This second volume in the Tales Behind the Veils series picks up where Diary of a Single Wedding Planner ended, but Tyler's personal drama dampens her enthusiasm for her crazy wedding clients. As she travels down the sometimes treacherous path of romance, Tyler finds that being a wedding planner in love isn't always the easiest job to have!
