STRIKE FORCE BOOK #2

A sniper and a reporter—can they face danger together?

Women are the best stress reliever for Delta Force sniper Beau Williams. Variety is definitely the spice of his life. Until he meets sexy, feisty sports reporter Megan Welles. The sparks between them are caused as much by the heated sexual attraction as by the force of their personalities. But the more time they spend together, the brighter the flame burns. Every chance he gets, Beau is back in San Antonio spending time with her. But he worries that this will burn itself out. When danger follows Megan because of a story she is writing, Beau steps up to the plate to help her and they both have to face that losing each other is a distinct possibility.

Excerpt:

Come on, asshole, where are you? Show me your face so I can blow it the fuck away.

Beau William flexed the fingers of one hand, relieving the strain of holding them in one position for so long. They had been here for what seemed like hours, he and the other members of Delta Force Team Charlie, waiting for their high value target to appear.

“Take him out and then get the hell out.” That was the order from their commanding office, and worked for Beau. If the murderous jerkoff would just get the fuck out of the tent where he was holed up.

He was disciplined enough to ignore the hard ground beneath him, the rocky terrain and the unrelenting heat. When he’d been picked to join Charlie, one of the first things his teammates told him was Afghanistan was no picnic. That it was considered one of the most forbidding battlegrounds in the history of war. It didn’t take him long to agree with that assessment. Bitter cold in the winter, hot as an oven in the summer, there were few roads, water was scarce and just the hardiest of the hardy could survive the brutal environment.

They hit the nail on the head with that one.

But he and his teammates, led by Slade Donovan, were just such men, trained in every skill imaginable to fight in the war on terror. They were part of a unit in the legendary Delta Force—or 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment,—which operated as part of JSOC—Joint Special Operations Command—in the on-going conflict with radical extremists around the world. Slade and his men were current

At the moment Slade and his men were in the middle of yet another hair-raising mission in the Hindu Kush, an unforgiving mountain range that ran from Central Afghanistan to Pakistan. Almost a thousand miles long and two hundred miles wide, it ran northeast to southwest, most of it through Afghanistan, it divided the Amu Darya River Valley and the Indus River Valley. It stretched from the Pamir Plateau, near Gilgit, to Iran and had over two dozen summits of more than twenty-three thousand feet in height. Below the snowy peaks, the mountains of Hindu Kush appeared bare, stony and poor in vegetation. For centuries it had been referred to as the graveyard of foreign armies.

Beau could agree with that. This wasn’t the first time Delta Force Team Charlie had been here on a mission in this soulless place and he was pretty damn sure it wouldn’t be their last. They’d plotted and planned with as much care as they could, absorbing all the intel they’d received, but as many times as they’d been here, they knew planning could just take them so far.

Finding cover was difficult as always, but their recon man had found them a perfect place to sequester themselves until the target was visible. Good thing, since they’d been waiting two days and two nights. The one good thing about the endless wait, roasting by day and freezing by night, was the wind that had plagued them without end for most of that time had died down at last.

As the team’s sniper, Beau hated the wind. An errant one played hell with the accuracy of a sniper rifle, screwing with the trajectory. He’d been doing this, serving as a sniper, for ten years and had learned how to compensate for nature, how to correct for almost anything up to gale force winds. But he liked it better when the air was still and his spotter could give him exact trajectory and coordinates. He’d still rather not have to worry about it. And up here in the Hindu Kush, the winds were very unpredictable.

A MUST READ

I may write romance but I am a triller junkie. This one is addictive. I could not put it down.

THE TERMINAL LIST

BY Former Navy SEAL

JACK CARR

The most powerful book to hit the bookstores this year. Do not miss it!

A talented author joins the ranks of Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, Mark Greaney, Matthew Betley

A story so powerful it will last kong after the final words.

RELEASES MARCH 6.  PREORDER TODAY!

 

Jack Carr, a former Navy SEAL, led a special operations teams on four continents as a Team Leader, Platoon Commander, Troop Commander and Task Unit Commander. So when he delivered a thriller about a fictional former SEAL, famed editor Emily Bestler had to sit up and take notice.

James Reece, and his creator, Jack Carr, are destined to join the ranks of ubiquitous names in the political thriller genre.

Blurb:

In TERMINAL LIST, Lieutenant Commander James Reece is compiling the most dangerous list in America; on it are the names of individuals at the highest levels of government and the military, each of whom has played a part in a treacherous, vicious plot that left Reece’s entire team dead in a catastrophic ambush and resulted in the murder of his loved ones. With nothing left to lose, he’ll target them in an equally brutal fashion, without regard for the laws of combat or the rule of law. 

On his last combat deployment, Lieutenant Commander James Reece’s entire team was killed in a catastrophic ambush that also claimed the lives of the aircrew sent in to rescue them. But when those dearest to him are murdered on the day of his homecoming, Reece discovers that this was not an act of war by a foreign enemy but a conspiracy that runs to the highest levels of government.

Now, with no family and free from the military’s command structure, Reece applies the lessons that he’s learned in over a decade of constant warfare toward avenging the deaths of his family and teammates. With breathless pacing and relentless suspense, Reece ruthlessly targets his enemies in the upper echelons of power without regard for the laws of combat or the rule of law.

An intoxicating thriller that cautions against the seduction of absolute power and those who would do anything to achieve it, The Terminal List is perfect for fans of Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, Stephen Hunter, and Nelson DeMille.

“This is one of the most exciting debuts I’ve read in ages,” said Emily Bestler, who first brought Vince Flynn and Brad Thor to market. “While this is a work of fiction, Jack Carr’s decades of experience as a SEAL, ranging from communications and intelligence to leading sniper teams to commanding a Special Operations Task Unit, give THE TERMINAL LIST the on-the-ground authenticity that breaks a political thriller out from the pack and certainly grabbed me from page one.”

Day Three Military Heroes

Without Warning

Vigilance Book #2

When you don’t know how the story will end . . .

After years of hard work honing his craft, Blake Morgan is now an international bestselling author. But one thing he never imagined was that his fictional world would become all too real. When a stalker turns Blake’s latest book tour into a treacherous and nearly deadly trap, it’s time for Blake to hire protection. But the body assigned to keep an eye on him is someone he never wants out of his sight . . .

As a bodyguard for Vigilance, the private security agency in Blake’s hometown of Arrowhead Bay, Samantha Quenel, former Army MP, has found the perfect outlet for her military experience. But her latest client is also a former high school flame, which might explain her willingness to protect Blake at all costs—even if that means staying in the same room with him, on the same bed, under the same torrid sheets . . .
Excerpt:

I know what you did.

 

Blake Morgan stared at the piece of paper in his hand, pulse accelerating, a tiny finger of ice slithering down his spine. Again. Someone had left it again. A message with the same words.

Goddamnit!

He looked around to see if he could spot whoever this was, the familiar fear gripping him, his stomach knotting. But he knew he’d see nothing. He never did. Whoever this was moved like a ghost, silent and unseen, leaving his taunting messages. If he wanted to keep Blake on edge, he was doing a damn good job of it. In a fit of anger, Blake crumpled the paper and stuck it in the drink holder of the car. He wasn’t going to let some unknown asshole frighten him. He’d faced worse than this.

He’d found the damn stupid note stuck under his windshield wiper when he went to get his car from the hotel parking garage. Anyone could have done it. Who paid attention to cars in a parking garage, anyway? And why would they? But Jesus. How the hell had someone known which car was his? It was a rental, for crap’s sake.

Wait! Were those footsteps? Was someone running toward him? Away from him? A car door slammed somewhere and an engine turned over. He looked around, wondering if he’d see someone hiding in the shadows, every nerve on high alert.

Okay, get your shit together. You aren’t a character in one of your books.

“Your father is missing.”

Devyn Cole tightened her grip on her cell phone and tried to make sense of what Sheridan March had just told her, as fear swept through her. Maybe she hadn’t heard right.

“What do you mean, missing?”

“The Coast Guard found the Princess Devyn drifting five miles off shore early this morning,” the Arrowhead Bay Chief of Police explained. “But there’s no sign of him anywhere. And no clue to anything in the house. We went through every inch of it. The alarm was fried, probably needs to be replaced, but otherwise the place was clean as a whistle.”

Devyn clutched the phone. “Was there anything on the boat? Something he might have had with him that could give us a clue?”

“Nada.”

“Where’s the boat now. Would the Coast Guard hold onto it?”

“In its slip at the Bayside Marina. After the Guard went over every inch of it they had one of the men on the cutter bring it back in and berth it. I have the keys.”

Devyn swallowed to ease the tightness in her throat. “When was the last time anyone saw him?”

Suspense! Romance! Military heroes!

This week I’ll be honoring all of them, and there are some special treats coming up.

Overview

Four strong men, four strong women

People who have learned that nothing good lasts

Can they make their relationships work?

They are a four-man Delta Force Reconnaissance/Sniper team whose assignments target key terrorists and eliminate them. They have just returned from three back-to-back missions, physically and emotionally exhausted and definitely in need of some really good R&R. With two weeks before they need to report back they decide to regroup at the ranch in Texas owned by one of the team members, Slade Donovan. They can spend the time drinking, hunting, riding horses and just chilling out.

But the men of this team have something else in common, too. They are all getting older, now in their late thirties, and they want something more than a temporary fix for loneliness. They want to find the right woman and settle down with her so they each have someone waiting for them when they’re home between missions.

Slade is close friends with a couple, JAG Commander Paul Hutton and his wife Melinda. The Huttons throw a party for Slade and his men the second night they are in San Antonio. A large crowd of people attends the party. Little do they realize that not just one of them but all of them will meet the woman meant for them at this gathering. For some it will be an instant connection. For others, a relationship that grows each time he returns to San Antonio. But even for them the relationship has a good foundation and keeps them grounded when they undertake their dangerous missions.

First up! Book #1 Unconditional Surrender

Had he found her again only to lose her to a stalker?

Slade Donovan and Kari Malone shared one anonymous night of hot sex. Five years later unexpected circumstances throw them together again and what’s between them burns hotter than ever. But as a member of Delta Force, Slade is wary of relationships, drawn to Kari on the one hand and hesitant on the other.

Kari has her own demons, the stalker she moved to escape who seems to track her everywhere. As the unknown stalker ramps up his game, it will take the Delta Force team to rescue her, and the danger to show them both that what they have is electric, erotic and real.
