Defending Sophie


Available November 9, 2021

Being unceremoniously discharged from 10th Special Forces due to internal politics, five members of Team Trojan needed to find a use for their specialized skills. They were fighting men, trained to protect, guard, extract and rescue. Sitting around being bitter about it only made things worse but what the hell was out there for them? An invitation to join the Colorado division of Brotherhood Protectors gave them an unexpected opportunity to show the world what they could continue to do.

For Bodie Jackson, leader of Team Trojan, who only knew a life of service in the military, the invitation was a lifeline. As he listened to the founder of Brotherhood Protectors, former SEAL Hank Patterson, he realized the military may have done him a favor. He now had a place where he could still use his knowledge and skills to serve others and keep his team intact. The one thing he didn’t have, and at the moment wasn’t worried about, was a woman in his life. Then a photographer with deep blue eyes and honey brown hair blew into his life.

Sophie Hart came to Fool’s Gold, Colorado, hoping to distance herself from a bad relationship that had turned into a nightmare that almost destroyed her. Accepting her close friend’s invitation to do the photography for her wedding was exactly the change she needed. Lots of girl time and lots of fun. That is until she photographed a killing in a ghost town. And met Bodie. All her good intentions to avoid men flew out the window when the tall, hunky, sexy guy became her defender, along with Team Trojan.

Try as they might, they couldn’t fight the blaze of attraction consuming them. But first they had to find the killers who were searching for Sophie.

Domenic “Dom” DeLuca gave his life to the SEALS. Then, in one minute, it was destroyed. A high level diplomat was killed on his bodyguard watch along with his career.

An accident took her memory and those after her want to eliminate her before it returns.

As they spend time with her running from the unknown enemies, an intense attraction explodes between them. As Dom unravels the danger around her and her memory returns bit by bit, will they give in to their feelings? Will Dom be able to save her? And what happens to them once the crisis is past?

With Bated Breath

Available February 22, 2022

We wait with bated breath until sunrise—when all the shadows burn away with morning’s light. Waiting for the next shoe to fall or a horrible situation to reveal itself.
We wait with bated breath for one more touch from our lovers—some of which are gone forever and some of whom we haven’t met, yet.
We wait with bated breath for another moment of beauty—even if it’s only fleeting.
Join us as we wait with bated breath.
