I didn’t realize she would send Cole to watch over me. Or that he would carry me out of my trailer when he saw how bad it really was. Who was he to tell me where I could live or how I managed my own business? I mean, he might be my kid’s uncle, but I’d been on my own for a long time. I didn’t need his help. And I really didn’t need the confusion that rushed through me whenever he stood too close. BOOK 2 I do the best I can. I have to make a living, right? And this industry…it pays very well. And when you’re on the streets with a kid to take care of, you do what you have to do. But I took pains to hide my face in the movies I acted in. For seven years, I’d kept my identity anonymous. But someone figured it out and now I have this big, silent man following me around, demanding I do everything he says. BOOK 3 I didn’t want him in my life, didn’t want him anywhere near me, but on the worst day of my life he comes walking down the street, a gun in his hand, and throws me over his shoulder like some sort of Neanderthal taking possession of what was his. But I wasn’t his anymore. That ended when I caught him kissing my sister in one of the most romantic cities in the world. My sister, who’d just been killed saying his name. How did I know he didn’t kill her? How did I know that he didn’t intend to kill me? BOOK 4 I’m a nurse. I help people. I’ve done it all my life, even before I embraced my profession. So when I heard Blake Zimmerman explaining how he and his wife were desperate to have a baby, I couldn’t help but offer myself. I’d never thought about being a surrogate before, but I wanted to help and it wasn’t like I had any romantic prospects at that moment. Hell, I hadn’t had romantic prospects in a long time. And Blake…he was over the moon at the suggestion. So was his wife, Annie. But then, almost the moment we signed the contract, someone tried to run me down. BOOK 5 We fought like cats and dogs. He made fun of my mode of dress and I…well, I usually just blushed and hit his arm, telling him to shut up. But I hated it, hated feeling like I was in high school again. So when Megan, my best friend and my boss, told me that we were to go on an undercover operation together, pretend to be a young, married couple, I thought she was insane. Or trying to play match maker. BOOK 6 Megan's story. That's all I'm saying ;)

Gray Wolf Security, Texas: The Complete Series
Glenna Sinclair - 2016
Enjoy the complete Volume 2 of the Gray Wolf Security series. Romance, Suspense, Mystery and a touch of Comedy. 6 Books. No Cliffhangers. More than 1,000 pages :) Book 1: Defending Tierney I never wanted to be anything other than a defense attorney. I never imagined following in my father’s footsteps would would mean finding death threats stuck under my car’s windshield. But it did lead me to Gray Wolf Security and the hot, sexy, former-Navy SEAL who would turn my world upside down and make me see my profession in a new light. Book 2: Forgiving Bailey I saw him standing off to one side at the funeral, but when I looked again, he was gone. I told myself it was just wishful thinking. Ingram didn’t want anything to do with me. After what I’d done on the witness stand during his court martial…he spent five years in the brig because of me. He would never come looking for me again. Book 3: Taming Knox I saw him sitting at a corner of the bar. He had these penetrating gray eyes that were just so intriguing. I walked over and made small talk, aware that he was looking at my ass, my thighs. He was a leg man. I could work with that. But then he mentioned a wife and I was off that stool faster than he could say wedding ring. He found me a few minutes later, whispering about his dead wife and I was just drunk enough to find it romantic. One night. That’s all it was supposed to be. Book 4: Controlling Brooks I didn’t need a babysitter. It was my husband’s idea to hire Gray Wolf Security, his idea to assign Elliott Wallace to watch over me while he was out of town. I’d rather be on my own, but that was the problem, wasn’t it? My husband couldn’t stand the idea that I might talk to someone outside of his control, that I might have a mind of my own. But I did and I wasn’t about to sit still and let Elliott tell me what to do and how to do it. Never mind that Elliott was probably the hottest guy I’d ever met or that my marriage, a convenient arrangement, was nearing its end. Book 5: Chasing Pepper I went to my sister because I had nowhere else to go. And it was incredibly convenient that her husband happened to own Gray Wolf Security and they were looking into a rash of robberies that I happened to have intimate knowledge about. I could keep tabs on the investigation, could know before anyone else if they were close to a suspect. All I had to do was have a beer or two with the handsome former Marine who was assigned the case. Book 6: Freeing Kipling My family was murdered while I was overseas and I had no control. Then the killer confessed and I still had no control. And now he’s dead—not by my hand as much as I desired it—and I’ve lost it all. But then his sister shows up at the front gate screaming that she has evidence that he is innocent. And suddenly there’s a chance at control, a chance to find the people who committed this heinous act and make them pay once and for all. Revenge had never been so sweet. And when it comes with a beautiful woman attached, a woman who’s been a thorn in my side for ten years, but so beautiful and making me remember that I was once a man, a viral man who felt things, a passionate man who knew pleasure, how could I resist?

New York Times Bestselling Author Brenda Novak This contemporary romance boxed set includes 3 full length LOVE IN BLOOM: THE REMINGTONS novels: GAME OF LOVE, Bk 1 STROKE OF LOVE, Bk 2 FLAMES OF LOVE, Bk 3 Sneak Peek, SLOPE OF LOVE *** GAME OF LOVE... Ellie Parker is a master at building walls around her heart. In the twenty-five years she's been alive, Dex Remington has been the only person who has always believed in her and been there for her. But four years earlier, she came to Dex seeking comfort and then disappeared like a thief in the night, leaving him a broken man. Dex Remington is one of the top PC game developers in the United States. He's handsome, smart, and numb. So damn numb that he's not sure he'll ever find a reason to feel again. A chance encounter sparks intense desires in Ellie and Dex. Desires that make her want to run--and make him want to feel. A combination of lust and fear leads these young lovers down a dangerous path. Is it possible to cross a burned bridge, or are they destined to be apart forever? *** STROKE OF LOVE Kate Paletto runs a volunteer program in Belize for Artists for International Aid, where she deals with self-centered artists who use the program as a means to repair their marred reputations. She loves the country, the people, and what AIA stands for, but too many diva volunteers have turned her off to press-seeking celebrities altogether and left her questioning the value of the volunteer program. When she meets incredibly handsome and charming Sage, he stirs emotions she hasn't felt for ages, even though he represents the things she despises. Laid-back artist Sage Remington escapes his wealthy lifestyle in the Big Apple for a two-week journey of self-discovery to figure out how a guy who has so much can feel so empty. When he meets ultra-organized Kate, who lives her life the way he's always dreamed of living his, the attraction is too hot to ignore, but Sage is there to figure out what's missing in his life, not to find a woman. Every look, and every late-night chat in the romantic jungle brings them closer together, but Sage can barely think past stripping away Kate's misconceptions about him. Kate fights him every step of the way--even though she finds it hard to ignore the strikingly handsome, generous-to-a-fault artist who wants to do nothing more than right the wrongs of the world--and love her to the ends of the earth. *** IN FLAMES OF LOVE... As one of New York's Finest, firefighter Cash Ryder is always prepared. When a woman's car skids off the side of a mountain during a snowstorm, he's there to rescue her. Cash is totally focused on the woman's well-being, but within minutes of getting her to safety, he realizes that he's nowhere near prepared for the heat that rolls off of sensual, smart-mouthed, and stubborn Siena Remington. As a model, Siena Remington has dated some of the wealthiest, most handsome men in the industry, and she's made peace with the idea that most men are just looking for eye candy and they wouldn't know how to romance a woman to save their lives. When she's rescued by a tall, handsome stranger, she thinks that maybe, just maybe, she's found her own real-life romantic fairy tale--until he opens his mouth and everything that comes out is gruff, ornery, and aggravatingly sexy. Thrown together during an annual firehouse calendar photo shoot, the passion between Cash and Siena sizzles, and neither one knows how to control the flames. After an evening of verbal sparring followed by a sinfully sensual night, their darkest secrets are revealed--and so is Cash's warm, romantic heart. But Siena's secret might be too much for big, strong, always-prepared Cash to handle--and Siena is forced to choose between a man who's everything she's ever dreamed of and an opportunity of a lifetime.

Feel-good, romantic book that lifts while at the same time addressing serious issues and deeper family connections. You will love Lily and her girls! There are sequels that tell the stories of other characters connected with Lily’s House. As one reviewer says, these are "Ideal for fans of Robyn Carr, Mariah Stewart, Sherryl Woods and Susan Wiggs." Editorial Review "Readers seeking inspirational women's stories with a broader focus than relationship-building moments will find House Without Lies just the ticket. It's filled with many different characters and diverse circumstances, but the overall plot holds true to its intentions and presents a vivid story made all the more immediate by Rachel Branton's choice of using the first person to capture Lily's daily life and feelings. Lily's accustomed to fighting for others: can she fight for herself, as well? An engrossing read, it's also a pleasure to add a note that while House Without Lies is part of a series, it's actually a fine stand-alone story that neatly concludes its plot. Readers will want more, but won't be required to hang off a cliff waiting for resolution – and that's a huge bonus to the first book in this series." –D.

Nor is Alicia at all prepared to be suddenly thrust into Ryder Grant’s path when his company, Blake Security, is hired to protect baby Celia and her family. Ryder is just as shocked when he comes face-to-face with Alicia and immediately feels a powerful connection with the beautiful Russian woman. Soon, Ryder becomes as determined to solve her mystery as he is to figure out what Alicia’s connection to the kidnapping might be.

Then a phone call brings Tyler home for the first time in almost 20 years and his path crosses with Ariana’s once more. The love is still there, but there are so many secrets and so much time and pain in between the former couple that it will take a miracle to bring them together again. LEIF Leif Thompson isn’t your average guy. Some might even say he’s a little strange. Spending months pretending to be a different man, so he can exchange letters with a woman he’s loved from the first accidental letter he received after a mix-up, definitely qualifies. When that woman, Karli, finally meets Leif and he blurts out the truth, there’s no chance she’s going to forgive him for such a huge deception. ABRAHEM Abrahem Hakim has always quietly worked in the background at Blake Security Investigations. He likes it that way.

Through Matt, Abrahem meets the boy’s beautiful sister, Mindy. She immediately sparks something in him he never thought he would feel, after all he saw in Afghanistan numbed him to life. But Mindy has her own demons she’s fighting, demons that threaten to tear her and Matt away from the fragile new life they’ve just barely begun to establish. BLAKE Blake has remained alone and aloof, holding everyone at a distance to avoid revisiting deeply embedded pain. Then Roxy drives into his life one cold, strange night, and Blake’s world is upended as he’s drawn into her own personal tragedy and sets out to help her, as he has so many others. Only this time, everything is different. In the end, maybe this one case will be what changes Blake’s life for the better, if he lets Roxy into his heart. And if he can keep her alive long enough to learn to trust again …

HUNTER People weren't supposed to live through what I lived through, and most of the time, I wish I hadn't. I came away from military service fucked up beyond all recognition, slinking back to my family's cattle ranch in Texas to heal, my tail between my legs. Well, leg. Singular. My brothers hire Hadley Parsons to put me back together again, and she's the best of the best, tough and beautiful to boot. She won't take an ounce of bullshit and she's made it her mission to see me through my recovery one way or another. With her unconventional methods, I find myself looking forward to seeing her every single day. AVERY Our ranch has been in our family for generations and generations, and it's said that ranching runs in Corbin blood. If that's true, though, I must not be a Corbin. I've always dreamed of doing something different — anything different — from the ranch, but blood is blood, and I can't see my brothers' dream go under. But when the ranch faces a real threat, I don't have a choice but to do the unthinkable — enter into a marriage of economics with Paisley Summers, daughter of a wealthy rancher one property over. I've known Paisley since elementary school, but that doesn't mean I like her. Can we learn to love each other in this new arrangement, or will this marriage tear our families and our ranches apart? EMMETT I don't know what it's going to take for me to get noticed in this family, but I'm pretty sure it won't take very long to get my brothers' attention associating with one of the most notorious women in town. Peyton Crow is best known for granting instant gratification to lonely souls in town, but she's a lot more than she seems. Once you get past all the sex and conflict, she has a heart of gold and a love and understanding for horses that rivals my own. But will my brothers finally take my ideas for expanding the family ranch seriously? And will Peyton ever see that she's worth much more than anyone gives her credit for? TUCKER I have secrets in my past that need to stay there — things I don't talk about. But when one of those nightmares comes back to life, there's nothing I can do to hide those terrible things from my brothers any longer. Amelia Banks makes frequent appearances in my nightmares, both of us survivors of a sadistic serial killer from my time away from the ranch as a cop. I thought that was all over and done with — it had almost killed me and driven me crazy. But when Amelia shows up on the ranch, terrified that the killer is hunting her once more, I start to realize that some things are never really other. CHANCE I've been taking care of the ranch and my brothers ever since our parents died, and have watched my brothers pair off with women who love them one by one. I'd like to experience some of that love, too, but I only have eyes for one woman — who happens to be our housekeeper. It would be too complicated. There would be too many factors against us being together. But I can't get her off of my mind — even as our ranch suffers a brutal attack that might end the family business for us Corbins once and for all.
