SEG Completes (5 Book Series)
From Book 1: “Toli looked at Delareux askance.
“I just need you to drive a truck,” Toli said.
“Why?” asked Delareux, leaning forward, “The truck have gremlins?”
Toli stared at Delareux.
“No, Mr. Delareux,” he began, “I need you to make retrievals and deliveries. My normal employee stopped showing up two days ago and I need you to fill in. Your ad says you do ‘odd jobs,’ correct?”
“What’s so odd about driving a truck?” asked Delareux.
“Look, Mr. Delareux, can you drive my truck or not?”
“Are you implying I can’t drive a truck? Because I can learn....”

EXCERPT:

The old woman lifted her lantern, the dim glow flickering off the Spanish moss that trailed from the dark branches above her head.

Somewhere in the far reaches of the bayou, an animal called out. An animal whose pain echoed her own.

Sinking to her knees on the damp ground, she threw back her head and gave voice to her anguish. It was all over now. Her only son, her beloved son, was condemned to die. For a crime she knew he could not have committed. He had made mistakes. She had warned him of the consequences, but never in her wildest imagination had she thought it would come to this.

She let her tears flow then. Tears of anger and regret. And when the storm of weeping finally subsided, she gathered her strength for what she must do. From the pocket of her long skirt, she pulled the bandanna with the objects. The pen. The paper cup. The metal tack.

Spreading the cloth on the ground, she stared at the tokens she had stolen. None was of material value. But they held the power she needed. For each belonged to one of the people she was going to curse tonight.

With bony fingers, she touched each object in turn, calling on her inner strength, summoning the dark powers she had learned to control long ago.

For she had the Romany gift of turning the tables on her enemies. She’d done it since she was a child. For small offenses and large, yet never anything so large as this.

Her enemies had taken her most precious possession—her son. He was lost to her now. Lost by trickery and deceit. But the three people who had cut out her heart would pay in kind. They would feel the pain she had felt. For they each had a son: Wyatt Boudreaux, Garner Rousseau, and Andrei Sobatka. Each would suffer a fate worse than death. A fate that would follow him till the end of his days.

In a low voice she began to chant the ancient words of her people, weaving in a curse for each man as she conjured up his face.

Her hand clenched the pen. “Justice is blind,” she whispered, then joined the curse with the name of Wyatt Boudreaux.

“Love is death,” she intoned as she crumpled the paper cup in her hand and said the name of Garner Rousseau.

Finally she picked up the tack, her finger caressing the cold metal as she said, “The law is impotent,” then linked the name with Andrei Sobatka.

As a flight attendant, Rayne Jackson is used to cancellations, but she never dreamed her latest would lead to a whirlwind tour of London with a handsome stranger…or a life-altering night in his bed. One evening is all the enigmatic man can give her, and Rayne greedily takes it, despite suspecting it will never be enough.

Heading home after another extreme mission, Keane "Ghost" Bryson hadn't planned to seduce someone during his layover, but Rayne is too sweet to resist.

Both are shocked when, months later, they meet again—under the worst possible circumstances. Seems fate has given them a second chance…if they can survive the terrorist situation they're in. If Rayne can forgive Ghost his lies. And if Ghost can trust Rayne to be strong enough to endure the secrets and uncertainty that come with loving a Delta Force soldier.

** Rescuing Rayne is the 1st book in the Delta Force Heroes Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

One night, they found themselves under some mistletoe.
Now, he owes her a kiss. And she is determined to claim it.


His heart torn in two, GRAHAM ASTOR, DUKE OF KENSINGTON, mourns his wife. As he distances himself from everything that reminds him of happier days lost forever, he comes to realize that there is one thing he cannot run from.

But then a stranger asks for her hand in marriage, and to her utter shock her uncle instantly agrees.

(But—okay, fine—love IS in the air.) (Seriously, these guys are hotter than a fire on a submarine.)

"...started with a bang and the tension never let up..." Paula Graves bestselling author

Excerpt:

He pressed his lips to her forehead, barely feeling the pain in his knee.

“I’m glad you came.” Her gaze softened. She looked at him as if he was some kind of a hero.

“You have to stop looking at me like that, sweetheart,” he begged, his voice suddenly low.

“Why?” she whispered, her sweet mouth inches from his.

“Because I’m trying hard not to kiss you.”

And then he did, just a slow brush of his lips against hers.

He needed to go easy on her. She’d just been through hell. But then she kissed him back.

He was so damn sunk here.

The kiss was flattering, because she kissed him as if she couldn’t quite believe that she was kissing him. She kissed him almost reverently, which was mind-boggling, because he so didn’t deserve her.

He kept the kiss civil, when all he wanted was to devour her. Eventually, he was even able to pull back. If he’d ever done anything to deserve a medal, this was it.

He cleared his throat, hoped she wouldn’t notice the sudden tenting in his pants. “I don’t want to take advantage of you here.”

She held his gaze. “Do you think you could take advantage of me somewhere else? Later?”

Her words shorted out his brain. He couldn’t come up with an intelligent thought, let alone coherent words.
