Trace Richards is not happy. As a star of the Native/African-American rodeo circuit, he should be out there bronco bustin'. Instead, he is stuck babysitting his bosses’ granddaughter. It's bad... More > enough a minor injury is keeping him out of the saddle, but when the bosses brat turns out to be the finest woman he had ever seen Trace knew he was in for trouble.

With those qualities at the helm of his disposition as a man and lover, how does he keep from scaring the actual crap out of a woman whose seemingly timid nature causes her to squirrel away from him anytime the situation gets a little too hot for her to handle? With Cassidy Farrell denying them both what they so desperately want--each other--Cutter finds himself on the edge of sanity and plunging off head first with the loudest "Oorah" he can deliver...< Less

More > alone in a room full of people who thought that the call of duty was a video game and PTSD could be fixed with pats on the shoulders and the singing of kumbaya, she'd come to understand that her veneer of calm was beginning to crack.

Leaving her hometown in Virginia wasn't the most appealing option but it was necessary. Yet, what was intended to simply be a get-a-way soon turns into the salve for her wounds that Keagan has been searching for. Said salve comes in the form of two slippery squid Special Force types that clearly have the resilience to survive the Navy and break down every single defense she has. Keagan finds herself on the edge...and she likes it...< Less
