New Release ~ DEFENDING RAVEN by Susan Stoker




Defending Raven
(Mountain Mercenaries, Book 7)
by 
Susan Stoker


A missing woman leads the alpha heroes on their boldest mission yet in New York Times bestselling author Susan Stoker’s searing Mountain Mercenaries novel.


Blurb ~


It’s been ten years since Rex’s wife, Raven, disappeared from a Vegas casino. Never losing hope, he even formed the Mountain Mercenaries to help find her—and other missing wives, sisters, and children. Now Rex and his fearless team are following a lead to Lima, Peru, where the rescue operation is greater than they imagined.

A day at a time. That’s been Raven’s motto for a decade. Once held captive by an elusive sex trafficker, she has an indomitable will to survive. But Raven’s not ready to leave Peru. She can’t. Not yet. Because her liberation from the barrios comes with devastating consequences. One wrong move and all hope will be lost to an unimaginable hell.

For the Mountain Mercenaries, the stakes have been raised. The threats are escalating. But Rex hasn’t searched this long, risked so much, and come this far to lose Raven all over again.

A Death in Sweden by Kevin Wignall

Who said romance and death don't mix?
Dan Hendricks plays a role in the CIA most people don't realize exists.  His mercenary work leaves him little in life to call a solid background.  He likes it that way.
Given the task to find a man who doesn't exist, he doesn't question the motive.
Inger, Swedish Secret Service, conveniently meets up with Dan just in time to save him from the foreign thugs trying to take him out.  A Death in Sweden by Kevin Wignall
Working with a partner is unusual for Dan, but Inger has knowledge and connections that may be useful.  He finds her attractive while he can't believe himself for thinking this way during such a critical case.
Inger announces her sexual preference of women in order to keep it all business.
The close calls, people chasing and dying, and their ultimate goal bring Inger and Dan as close as the clothes on their backs.  Even closer when the clothes comes off.
The reality of their work and lives is a mountain to cross if they want to admit the attraction and love building amid the danger.
An exhilarating read between the foreign lands, covert work, and dangerous love.  I enjoyed feeling as if I followed them, heart racing during attacks and sentimental moments.

Happy reading,
Dawn

Summer Read at the Beach!

     Even if you can't get to a beach this summer, there's nothing like a romance that takes place on a beach. Then add a hunky cowboy in an exotic locale and you can't lose! Aloha Cowboy has that and more 😊

       Sometimes being a Pennington can be a disadvantage.
 
     Cordell Pennington considers himself a simple cowboy and he doesn’t want to be in Hawaii. He doesn’t even want to be on vacation until he meets Leah Pennington, the manager of The Puanani Resort. What intrigues him is not that they have the same last name or that they both hail from Arizona. It’s her habit of vacillating between a professional faΓ§ade and her personal self that has him taking notice.

     Leah’s breathless moment at seeing a cowboy at the reception desk is as much caused by concern as excitement. Upon meeting Cord, she’s happy to help him enjoy his stay, as long as it stays professional. But their constant proximity, thanks to her job, and Cord’s kindness is taking a toll on her willpower until she not only finds herself falling for him but even reveals her reason for never returning to Arizona.

     As Cord’s vacation draws to a close, he’s determined to convince Leah they could have a future together despite the miles that separate them. But when his own secret is revealed, the ocean between them is the least of his troubles.
