What starts out as a meeting by accident becomes a hot affair neither one is ready for. Kyle is conflicted about getting Christy involved in his mission, but his hand is forced when he learns the same San Diego gang responsible for his teammate's abduction has kidnapped her.

Nebraska born and bred Navy SEAL Calvin “Coop” Cooper, after his own family has perished in a tornado, is ordered to meet the family of a prominent San Diego psychiatrist. The doctor's brother is a fallen SEAL medic who died in Grenada. There, Cooper meets Libby Brownlee, the beautiful niece of this fallen hero. Heavily influenced by her father, “We don't speak military here,” is her comment about the military in general, and the SEAL community in particular. What starts out as a frosty debate between two people privately dealing with their own personal grief, turns into a passionate affair neither expected. Just as Cooper realizes perhaps Libby is the woman he's always been looking for, she is snatched out from under him by a psychopathic killer bent on revenge. Dr. Brownlee is forced to rely on Cooper's help, along with his buddies in SEAL Team 3. Will Cooper be able to survive the loss of the woman he loves, or will his self sacrifice be enough to keep her safe?

Vowing he will save her from the bad environment she has placed herself in, he is blindsided by his sister's hotter-than-hot best friend, Gina. Gina Mancuso is working her first under cover detail, trying to prove herself on a male-dominated police force, even if it means she has to work side by side with the SDPD officer with whom she had a brief, abusive relationship. She is not prepared for the chemical attraction that slams her against the hard body of her subject's Navy SEAL brother, Armando. Their hot affair not only threatens to ruin her mission, but could engulf Armando in a career-ending dispute with local law enforcement. Armando is unwilling to walk away from his sister, especially as tensions rise between he and Gina's ex-lover.

But will she have to sacrifice their relationship in order to accomplish the mission she was sent to do?

Nick's sister requires two things of the both of them as her dying wish. 1. Nick and Devon must find a buyer for the nursery together, not allowing to her nasty winery owner neighbor next door to get his hands on her piece of heaven. 2. They date at least five times before she passes on.
What starts as a deathbed promise turns out to be a hot affair neither one expected. Nick becomes Devon's teacher in her journey to womanhood. As she comes alive in his arms, the student brings the teacher something he's never allowed himself to want, and now knows he needs.
As his sister's life is ending a sinister plot to take over her property comes alive. Nick finds out both the women he holds most dear to him are in jeopardy. He's too late to save one of them, but will he be able to save the other?

Navy SEAL Trace Bennett has recovered from injuries he sustained while rescuing Gretchen’s daughter, Clover, from kidnappers. The man who “wouldn’t let go” finds himself now tied to the single mom of three girls, by strings of duty, honor and, to be perfectly honest, lust. He’s killed bad guys all over the world, and rescued his share of innocents, but he isn’t sure that properly qualifies him for fatherhood.
Gretchen has opened her heart one more time to a man she did not expect to fall for. But she’s determined this will be the last time. She’s dusted off her mating skills and tried to melt the ice she feels in her veins towards men in general. Formerly married to a famous NBA star who cheated on her publically, she’s only got room in her life for one more chance at love. Her primary mission is to raise her three daughters and whatever else she gets for herself comes second. Dating a man who has failed at marriage isn’t a great start to her new quest, but she holds her nose and jumps in feet first.
Their rocky road to redemption will bring them more pain than they ever imagined, and more happiness than either of them feel they deserve.
BOOK 1 PREQUEL
This is a short piece written to introduce you to my characters, Kyle and Christy. It is a small investment of time and money on your part, like the first course to a much larger meal.
This is a private glimpse into the hearts and minds of these fictional SEALs, their community, and the women who are lucky enough to be loved by them. Their brotherhood, loyalty and mission to protect and defend, sometimes at great personal cost, is what makes them heroes. They do so quietly, not seeking public recognition.
If you enjoy this piece, I hope that you will continue along the journey in my full length novel, Accidental SEAL, and read how these two get together, and fight dangers that threaten to keep them apart.
Christy and Kyle meet quite by accident in the very first chapter, and not in any way you could predict. But rest assured, they will find themselves together at the end in an intense and passionate relationship on purpose.
