Even when he returns her safely Stateside, it seems there's no respite from the nightmare that follows her home, catching her in the very worst of the situation.
This battle will require everything Stone and Lissa have to give. Even as they work together to clear her name and keep her safe, the harbinger lurks just around the corner…
Riches to rags. ... Chaos to more chaos. ... Fire destroys evidence. ... Or at least most of it!
Flush with success from solving a decade-old kidnapping case, Doreen can’t wait to find out what’s next in her one-woman crusade to clean up Kelowna’s cold crimes. But, before she can unearth another old case to sink her teeth into, she must tie up some loose ends from the last one.
Steve Albright, fixer for the local biker gang, has made it clear that he blames Doreen for sending his
friend Penny Jordan to prison. Steve even suggests that Doreen might have set up Penny Jordan. While Doreen wouldn’t do that, she’s afraid that other people might believe Steve. He’s a popular figure in town and has a lot of friends, many of whom Doreen doesn’t want to get any closer to than she must.
At least Steve doesn’t have his gun anymore, having dropped that in Doreen’s neighbor’s gardenia bed while she chased him from her yard. Which makes Doreen think that maybe it’s safe to dig into Steve’s past. Until she uncovers a connection to three arson cases from years ago and is warned off by Corporal Mack Moreau.
But Doreen’s never listened to Mack before, and it has all worked out thus far, so it’s not like she has to listen to him now. Right?
Finally back in Coronado and his own apartment but still tired from traveling, Taylor helps a neighbor by closing her apartment door as she dashes back to work. But, as he does so, a smell he’s all too familiar with permeates the air. And he’s plunged into a multiple homicide with no meaning or end …
Midge doesn’t understand what’s happened to her life, … but now her home, her workplace, her neighbors are all in danger and are all suspect. … Taylor is the only piece of normalcy in her world-gone-crazy right now.
But even he can’t keep an eye on her all the time …
Katina has something that others want badly enough to make them risk anything to get, no matter how evil their plan, no matter who they have to kill to get it…
When she's asked to help on a mission, she eagerly agrees, hoping to score some points with her employer…except she inadvertently triggers a sequence of disastrous events that no one--even one familiar with Sienna's klutziness the way Rhodes is--could have predicted.
As a trial run that could potentially lead to more work, Flynn agrees to do a security operation for Levi at Legendary Securities. Looking after Anna and her animal shelter should be the easiest job he's ever taken. He doesn't expect the trouble to start when he leaves, job done, and realizes he never wants to leave Anna again.
For Anna, having Flynn around was both a blessing and a curse. She'd enjoyed the help around the extremely large shelter…but every moment they spent together had sparks of wildfire ricocheting between them. Even as she tries to convince herself she's relieved to finally see the (albeit sexy) back of him, he's monopolizing her thoughts again long before she stumbles over the dead body.
Someone is after Flynn, someone who saw Anna and Flynn together, saw the red-hot attraction…and now knows exactly how to get what he wants from his target.
The traffickers have a quota and letting even one potential moneymaker go isn't in the cards. Alina is far from the only victim. On the run together, Logan and Alina race against time, no longer certain who's the hunted and who's the prey in the sordid, heartbreaking underworld they've descended into.
When a call for help comes from the father of his boss Levy's woman Ice, Harrison answers. A senator has been shot, his wife beaten and the man's kids are in the wind. With a press-conference's-worth of questions needing answers, Harrison has his job cut out for him. Unfortunately, that's not all that's expected of him. The senator's adult daughter is also missing. She's ex-military and apparently has a grudge against the world. She doesn't want to be found, and, even after Harrison locates her, she refuses to have a single blessed thing to do with him. If only he felt the same…
Zoe's on a mission that doesn't leave room in her worldview for heroes, especially a gorgeous badass warrior like Harrison, whom she considers little more than a mercenary for hire. Good thing Harrison has never been the type to take 'no' for an answer because the situation--and their relationship--has all the ingredients of a powder keg requiring one small spark to ignite it. Zoe has angered exactly the wrong people…and they're plotting to put an end to her meddling…and her…permanently.
That's the last thing Caitlyn wants with Ryder. She isn't here by chance. Realizing she screwed up their relationship big-time, she'll do anything to get him back in her life, even if it means working overseas on the off-chance of seeing him sometimes.
When the outpost is attacked, medical supplies go missing and Caitlyn is grabbed, all bets for a fairy-tale ending are off. What's really important is all that matters now, and the two of them need to figure out what that is before they lose that very thing again--this time permanently.
Being a SEAL is at the core of Cooper's being, but he isn't just doing his duty when the doctor who miraculously restored him to life is kidnapped. He's the first in line to volunteer in her rescue.
Dr. Sasha Childs has devoted herself to helping others. Finding out her husband is helping himself to her best friend solidifies her sense of single-minded devotion to practicing medicine. Disillusioned about love, she volunteers her skills to a Syrian refugee camp crying out for medical aid. She's completely unaware of the war brewing around her until she's caught in the middle of it.
Cooper had his hands full rescuing Sasha from foreign hands the first time. After the war comes home, keeping her safe a second time becomes damn near impossible. Blessed with getting his life handed back to him, he discovered he needs a second miracle before the woman he's fallen for becomes little more than a casualty of war.
While growing up, Hawk was always the wild card, the one who couldn't sit still or find a place to belong. Becoming a SEAL gave him a niche and a purpose in the world like no other. Nevertheless, the wild man remains under the surface, waiting for the match to his flame. Ending up back home for a few days' R&R, Hawk notices a new, darker element has moved in next door--and, at least in part, it appears to involve a freckle-faced redhead from his past, the girl he never forgot.
Mia remembers her best friend's brother from her childhood only too well. What girl in her right mind could forget Hawk? As a boy, he'd been 24-7 fireworks, lighting up her life. Every encounter with him took her breath away and made her heart beat too fast. But Hawk, the man, home for a holiday, is harder, dangerous--and impossibly sexier than he'd been when she was just a star-struck kid longing to catch his eye.
Even as Mia is swept off her feet by her teenage-crush-turned-grownup-acute feelings for him, the town is hit by unprecedented violence…and Mia's smack-dab in the middle of the explosion.

With a young girl's life at stake, Kacey helps pull Nathan's team together for one last
assignment. But, she finds it next to impossible to work with Nathan again—especially when she
know he wants so much more, and she has so much to hide.

At thirty-five, he has been fortunate not to be the next Navy SEAL with his name on the wall. Still, he can’t refuse a former commander who enlists him for one last assignment on a secret project.
Doctor Haley Kingston skills will keep her alive, but only one man can save her after she is kidnapped from the hospital where she is working.

He will have to face his worse nightmares – see the one he loves in danger and realize that his dog tags may be the next ones given to her.

Or will his nightmares come true, and this mission will turn out to be his last?

During his thorough interrogation at the precinct by the sexy-beyond-belief detective, Macklin finds himself furious…and intrigued. Seems, alive or dead, Marsha is determined to make his life miserable. Alex intends to find out the truth, and, as an elite warrior himself, he admires her grift and ethics in pursuit of the answers. Damn that she's the first woman in a long time he'd love to get to know better.
With no other option, Macklin has to help the detective solve the mystery--hopefully before Alex has no choice but to charge him with murder.
