 For U.S. Navy SEAL, Bowie “Ruckus” Cooper, going on a mission into the most dangerous place on earth wasn’t new, neither were the orders to tag and bag an international criminal, but when Bowie finds a captive American reporter, that wasn’t exactly run of the mill. Neither was getting separated from his team, teaming up with her or protecting her against all odds, while working to keep his hands from around her neck and off her delectable body.

Fearless and bold photojournalist, Dana Sorenson never backed down from a fight or to showcase her dedication to reporting on the human condition. That’s what she thought until she meets Bowie and big, bad, and tough takes on a whole new meaning. Gratitude for saving her ass gets lost in his demanding orders and fighting for her life takes a back seat to falling for this alpha male who’ll risk everything to see her safe.

U.S. Navy SEAL Wes “Cowboy” McGraw goes home on leave to attend his tenth high school reunion. This brings him back into the orbit of a woman he knew in high school: Kia Silverbrook, renowned for her hacking ability. She’s always intrigued him and when they meet again by chance, the chemistry is still there as strong as ever. But Galveston isn’t home anymore since Wes lost the ranch after his father’s shocking death. He’s been saving up to buy it back, but he’s not sure he can go home again, especially now that he’s been pledged to the SEALs. He’s only home for a short period and long-distance relationships didn’t pan out for him in the long run. Cowboy has fantasized about this woman for years, the girl who was and is still worlds apart, one he’d never taken a chance on.

Hacker extraordinaire Kia has been making a sweet living doing some legal and not so legal hacking. But when a break-in makes her believe that a secret investigation she has been conducting may be blowing back at her, she doesn’t know where to turn. Except to Wes, the boy who had always intrigued her in high school with his cowboy charm and those ever-watchful, hot whiskey eyes. He was so far out of her league with her Goth dress and her pierced body. She has possible evidence that will knock Cowboy’s world off its axis, but now she needs Wes’s help. If this big, bad, gorgeous SEAL couldn’t keep her safe, she’d eat her computer. Could this man even look at her twice once the danger is over?
 On leave from the SEALs, Arlo "Scarecrow" Porter heads home to Red River Parish, Louisiana to care for his recently widowed mom and come to terms with his dad's unexpected death. He'd asked Scarecrow to come home because he wanted to reveal a secret to him, but Scarecrow couldn't make it in time. Before his dad passed, he'd been raving about their next door neighbor who had leased some of his parents' land to grow chilies. He finds the owner and grower of Puckerbottom Peppers is beautiful and secretive and very British, Scarlett Jones. His warrior attention piqued and his protective instincts on alert, he intends to discover all her dark secrets.

MI-6 operative, Scarlett Jones had gone off the grid. She’d heard about sweet talking, rough around the edges Arlo Porter, but when he shows up on her doorstep with his slow, southern accent and his instant suspicious demeanor regarding her intentions with his parents’ land, she can’t trust anyone. His suspicions are founded, but she’s given up everything to reclaim her family’s heirlooms that were stolen when her small Russian town had been ransacked by a sadistic rebel leader. She needs to keep this dangerous man close. What she doesn’t bargain on is this man with his deep, penetrating eyes and warrior attitude will challenge everything she’s believed in her whole life.

She’d never been a damsel in distress, but she can’t seem to resist those strong arms and his protective nature. Can there be a happily ever after for her with this man?
   **Same story...updated cover!**

Tex gave everything he had to his country and his SEAL teammates. When an IED took away part of his leg, and his career, he devoted himself to his country and friends from behind his computer. He’s always been the man that can find anyone, that uses his computer skills, legal and illegal, to keep people safe and to put the bad guys behind bars.

But behind a computer is a lonely place to be. While he might put on a good front, Tex can’t help but feel he’s missing out when he sees how happy his friends are. But when the woman he’s been talking to online for the last six months suddenly disappears without a word, Tex knows it’s time to step up, and use his skills for himself this time.

“The sexy, alluring bad boys of the True Brothers MC will make your mouth water.”—New York Times bestselling author Heidi McLaughlin

With her lowlife father in prison for manslaughter, Nicole Walker keeps her distance from the biker scene—until she meets the stud running security at her best friend’s wedding. “Tank” is big, mean, and trouble from every direction. Yet Nicole can’t take her eyes off his chiseled body, or deny the pure electricity she feels when he returns her gaze. Guys like Tank are supposed to be a one-way ride to heartbreak. So why, after a scorching night in his bed, does Nicole only want more?

From his tour in the Marines to his sister’s disastrous marriage, Tank has seen the worst that life has to offer. Ever since his father’s death, Tank’s been fiercely protective of his family—and the True Brothers have always had his back. But nothing could prepare him for a woman like Nicole, who’s determined to break down the walls around his heart. When violence strikes, placing Nicole in harm’s way, Tank digs deep to find the courage to keep her safe—and the strength to love without limits.

Look for all of Gillian Archer’s smoldering True Brothers MC romances:
RUTHLESS | REBELLIOUS | RESILIENT | ROUGH RIDE

And don’t miss RELUCTANTLY ROYAL, “an entertaining, sexy, opposites-attract romance” (Harlequin Junkie).

Praise for Resilient

“[A] roller coaster ride . . . Aggression and romance work in parallel in the seductive third True Brothers Motorcycle Club novel. . . . [Gillian] Archer keeps the pulsing energy flowing through a tautly plotted and at times violent tale. Her characters are complex people who could easily appear in anyone’s life.”—Publishers Weekly

“Do you love motorcycle club romances with sexy alpha males and strong, feisty women? This book is for you! Resilient is all of that.”—Kelly’s Book Blog

“I have become a huge fan of MC books since I started reading them a little over a year ago. . . . Something about bad boys who have a heart of gold gets to me, and the men in the True Brothers MC series are definitely that.”—Life of a Crazy Mom

“For a romance novel about bikers, Resilient had a lot more twists and turns than I expected. It wasn’t just love and sex, this book actually had an awesome plot that kept me hook.”—Freeing Fantasy

Includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
The mission: Rescue an executive translator being held hostage in Iraq without falling in love.


Erin Lopez never thought her life would be more dangerous as a civilian. She hoped she'd put her days dodging bullets behind her. Now, her only salvation is in the arms of a slow-talking man who makes her heart remember what it's like to love again.


Retired Army Ranger Riley Smith knows what it's like to fight the past every time he closes his eyes. Erin's dark, haunted eyes only tell a fraction of her story, and when she reaches for comfort, he can't tell her no. She makes this broken man want to be whole again.


The closer Erin and Riley get to the truth behind Erin's kidnapping the more dangerous their path becomes. Someone wants Erin silenced at any price. Riley can’t let that happen, but keeping her alive means facing that their no strings attached arrangement is a lie.

Outlaw friends and family are featured in these three novellas where true love lives in small town hearts as well as weary travelers, and big city movers and shakers. Come back to Hope Parish…

Finally Again

Evangeline "Evie" Outlaw has been living in emotional limbo ever since the love of her life, Brody Outlaw, up and left her with triplets to raise on her own in a hostile and unwelcoming town. Now her boys are men and independently carving out their own lives, but still living under the shadow of her husband's lineage. The terrible Outlaw curse.

It isn't until River Pearl Sutton comes crashing into her son Braxton's life that Evie gets a wake-up call in the form of intensely sexy Winchester Sutton, River's uncle. A sophisticated, international food critic. He's a man that is hard to ignore with his soft, slow accent, his ice blue eyes that are full of fire, and a body that makes her remember what it was like to be desirable.

But, Win is a Sutton and she married into the Outlaw curse, a woman who spawned the Outlaw Unholy Trinity, a woman who is still technically married. She'd held onto the memory of Brody for thirteen years, never giving up hope he would come back, never believing that he left her voluntarily.

But Win is flesh and blood real, pursuing and charming. Can she find the kind of deep, abiding love she had for Brody?

Or will her loyalty and the bias gossip of the town tear her apart.

Can she finally again find love

Beauty Shot

Decon West arrives at Columbia University to start his freshman year. But New York City is like an alien planet to him and even though he's a fish out of water, he takes it in stride. He expected to be homesick. He expected to find the city chaotic. What he hadn't expected was that the girls would be so aggressive, throwing themselves at him. But, there's only one woman he's interested in tracking down and that's Minnie Tattersall.

Minnie dodged the bullet and resisted the temptation of eighteen-year-old Deke West when she was visiting Suttontowne. Now she's hard at work on the upcoming collection she and Verity Outlaw will be showing at Fashion Week. She also finds it hard work to get Deke off her mind, but easy to remember that he's much too young for her. It isn't until he shows up at the show, and accidentally lands on the runway modeling their clothes that things begin to heat up for them. It's clear to Minnie that Deke doesn't much care that he's taking the New York City fashion scene by storm. He's hell-bent on breaking down her barriers and having her. How will she resist?

Mark Me

Rory Finnegan had one goal when he got out of the Marines. Find a place where he can settle down and open a tattoo parlor. That's when his best friend Ethan Fairchild suggests he come to Suttontowne in the Louisiana bayou. It's there that Rory gets a job bartending for Braxton Outlaw and runs smack full force into gorgeous, too young for him, Savannah Hawkins. To make matters worse, she's got an over-protective mother and an upper-crust boyfriend. It would be smart he steered clear. But Marines like Rory don't back down easily, especially after he gets much too involved with the southern beauty.

Savannah Hawkins is not sure what she's going to do with her life and is quite sick of having everyone dictate to her, especially her family. When she gets a load of pierced, tattooed and gorgeous Rory, her interest goes off the charts. Complication like life decisions and a pre-selected husband seem inconsequential when she gets to know this scarred and battle-hardened warrior. Will she discover the answers she needs or will her coming of age tear her heart apart?
