But someone isn''t happy that Avery didn''t die in the mountains...and they''ll do anything to make sure she doesn''t live long enough to talk about what she might''ve heard and seen while deployed. ** Securing Avery is the 5th book in the SEAL of Protection: Legacy Series.

Shelter for Koren: A Firefighter/Police Romantic Suspense
Discovering your ex is a serial-killing religious zealot would put anyone off dating for a good long while. That’s where Hudson “Taco” Vines’s head is at when he meets Koren, a woman who looks a little too much like his ex for comfort. But he can’t deny their attraction, and the more he gets to know her, the more Taco realizes how different Koren is from his ex, in all the best ways. It’s not long before he’s feeling things for her that he’s never felt for anyone, ever. After the drama of his last relationship, maybe this is his reward…a supportive, comfortable life with a woman he’s coming to love. Koren Garner is no fan of drama, and it certainly seems Taco and his friends have all seen more than their share. So you’d think meeting him for the second time at the scene of her own car accident would be enough to warn her away. But Koren can’t resist the sexy firefighter.

Koren and Taco can only pray the culprit is caught before their relationship—and their lives—go up in smoke. ** Shelter for Koren is the 14th book in the Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes Series.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Susan Stoker comes a new story in her Delta Force Heroes series… After years of estrangement, Mercedes Laughlin has finally reconciled with her older brother. It should be the happiest time of her life, getting to know Truck and his new wife…and it would be, if an ex wasn’t causing her trouble. Add in Truck’s boss, Colonel Colton Robinson, an amazingly distracting man whom she met under embarrassing circumstances, and Macie’s got a bit more on her plate than she can handle. From the moment they met, Colt was fascinated by Macie, and helping her through an anxiety attack at her brother’s wedding didn’t diminish the appeal. He’d do his best to sweep her off her feet, if not for a little voice telling him to tread lightly—until a frantic phone call changes the plan. Macie’s being targeted, and Colt’s determined to keep her safe while he and her brother eliminate the threat. Colt isn’t about to let his friend lose his sister again so soon…or miss his own chance at a happy ending with Macie before they’ve barely had a beginning. ** For fans of Susan’s Delta Force Heroes, Rescuing Macie is book eleven in that series** **Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you''ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

He’s looking for someone of substance, and Aimee has far more to offer than just her adorably disheveled look.

Being a single mother is difficult at best, but renting the extremely affordable space from Fletch makes Emily’s life a lot easier…until it doesn’t. Suddenly all the money she’s saving thanks to Fletch’s generosity is going into the hands of a blackmailer. And what little food Emily can afford goes to her daughter Annie, so the girl doesn’t go to bed hungry…leaving Emily weaker and weaker. When miscommunication has Emily assuming Fletch is in on the blackmail, he not only has to gain her trust, but also deal with a man holding a grudge against Fletch and his entire Delta Force team. A task made more difficult when the dangerous man gets his hands on Emily and Annie... Rescuing Harley: Video game coder, Harley Kelso, thought a tandem skydive would help her make her latest game more realistic. Instead, it literally put her in the arms of the sexiest man she’s ever seen. Geeky to the core, Harley is the polar opposite of big and burly Beckett, but that doesn’t stop her from wanting to play more carnal games with the sexy soldier. When Beckett “Coach” Ralston offers to fill-in at a friend’s skydiving club, he doesn’t suspect he’ll meet a woman who will change his life—and he definitely doesn’t expect her to save it. But that’s exactly what happens when an accident mid-air forces Harley to land them both safely. She’s earned Coach’s complete gratitude, and even more, sexual interest… Until she disappears without a trace. With Harley missing, a happy ending might not be in the cards for the man who loves her—especially when he becomes the main suspect. *** Read what others are saying about New York Times bestselling author, Susan Stoker: "Riveting action and characters you''ll love!” Elle James, NYT Bestselling Author “If you love alpha heroes and nail-biting romantic suspense, then you can’t go wrong with Susan Stoker.” Sawyer Bennett, NYT Bestselling Author “No one does military romance like Susan Stoker!” Corinne Michaels, NYT Bestselling Author “Susan Stoker knows what women want.

Truck’s job, Mary’s health. His bossiness, her bitchiness. All while dancing around their intense attraction. Mary’s tried to push him away for his own good but Truck won’t let her give up…on herself or on them. Just when she decides they deserve a fair shot, disaster strikes. Truck has wanted Mary since the moment he saw her. The prickly woman pushes all his buttons and looks beyond his scarred exterior, something few women have managed. His plan to take their relationship to the next level is stalled when he’s injured on a mission. And he’s barely feeling like his old self again before the couple is dealt another blow, one that could permanently end their chances…and their lives. **Rescuing Mary is the 9th book in the Delta Force Heroes Series. Usually my books are stand-alones, but in this case, I feel you would get more enjoyment out of the story if you read the other books first, since Mary and Truck’s relationship evolves throughout the series. If nothing else, I recommend reading the first book in the series, Rescuing Rayne, where their relationship began. --- Read what others are saying about New York Times bestselling author, Susan Stoker: "Susan Stoker is the master of military romantic suspense.

But when he asks what he can do to help, he''s even more surprised by the answer. Best Christmas Ever- When Chris and Sienna meet during an accident in Texas, the perfect strangers soon discover they''re inexplicably linked...in more ways than one. Coincidence? Perhaps. Or maybe the makings of their very own Christmas miracle. First Kiss- Annie Fletcher is far more tomboy than girly-girl; Frankie Sanders has a disability most boys don''t have to endure.

Claiming Sarah
All defenses are down in the fifth Ace Security novel from New York Times bestselling author Susan Stoker. Sarah Butler isn''t flattered. She''s angry and unnerved. She''s been getting intimate gifts from a man she barely knows. Nothing threatening yet, but there''s just a weird vibe she can''t ignore. Her recourse is Ace Security. Their solution: self-defense lessons at Rock Hard Gym with a personal, hands-on instructor. One look at the bearded, tattooed, green-eyed alpha is enough to take Sarah''s breath away. Cole Johnson is definitely the man for the job. He''s eager to train her. Eager to get closer. And when it comes to Sarah''s instincts, Cole knows she''s not imagining things. He''s also not imagining the intense attraction between them--and his desire to protect her is growing. But so are Sarah''s fears, the worst of which come true when she disappears. Enlisting the help of Ace Security, Cole will stop at nothing to find the love of his life...before she vanishes forever.
