Platinum, Zinc, & Francium
Award Winning Author
Meet the Men of Elite Metal…
When they try to take what belongs to him, they’ll discover just how deadly Platinum can be.
Zinc has nothing to prove–and everything to lose.
Just because he’s on the right side of the fight doesn’t mean she can trust him.
These books were previously published in 3 different anthologies. The author has received her rights back and is publishing them herself now. These stories are hot romances with jealous and possessive heroes. You have been warned.
This one tugged at my heartstrings in so many ways. We do some now and then with this one giving insight to the thoughts and feelings of both Platinum and Rose.
Platinum has a son no one on the team knows about. He has been supporting him anonymously since he learned of his existence.
He accidentally met his teacher while watching his class in the playground from a bench across the way. Rose was everything he wanted in a partner. Then he was torn away from that life, back to his team and the quest to find and destroy Red Wolf.
Rose was angry, he vanished without a word. Now she’s afraid for Kent, his grandmother killed and the two of them being shot at. She took him to the safest place she could think of, her parents cabin.
This is a favorite scene.
“Ms. Rose.”She jumped at the sound of his voice. So intent on listening for noises outside, she hadn’t noticed Kent awakened.
“Sweetheart. Come here.” She extended her arms and he walked into them. He needed to stay close where she could grab him if necessary. If he moved around too much or she was out of range and something happened, she’d never forgive herself.
“It happened, really? My Maw Maw, she’s dead.” He hadn’t quite gotten rid of the lisp sound when he made his s sounds, although it was much better than when he’d been in her class. The act left the impression of his being much younger than his actual age.
She saw children two years younger than him every day. Still, Kent seemed very small to her.
“The woman police officer, she came through the door. Shot my Maw Maw and then she wanted me. I ran. I hid. And then you came.”
Exactly the way he told the story earlier. Starts and stops, not much detail to hold onto. His Maw Maw started medicating him earlier in the year to help with his focus, which would have to be wearing off soon. The fact he’d slept at all surprised her. Trauma could trump anything going on in the body, it seemed. She’d never needed him to take medication when he’d been in her class. Since he was older, and the work was more taxing, the teachers complained more. Who was she to judge? She liked Kent focused or inattentive. Either way, he was a great kid.
“We’re going to be okay.” Lying to him seemed the kindest thing she could do.
“You always told us not to fib.”
She squeezed his arm. “Smarty-pants. Don’t you think I can figure out what to do?”
He was silent for a while and when he spoke again, his words surprised her. “Maybe we can call my dad.”

The past hurtles into the present, the sniper’s thoughts, the heartbreak, and more. There is much to explain and so much to lose. I loved every word and every tear I shed.

Zinc wanted one thing from Steele when he took off his mask, the answer to a question. The question – Why did you leave me behind? Like all the other Zinc lost much when he became a Ghost. Only he didn’t have the years of freedom the others had in between.What happens when it wasn’t answered immediately was painful for both of them. Steele with a broken face literally, that required surgery and Zinc with no relief from the physical and emotional pain.
This book takes off quickly and Zinc’s mission is to get Steele’s sister Sarah out of the clutches of one of Red Wolf’s minions. Walter David. David is, among other things, a stop on the human trafficking pathway.
Sarah a CIA agent was taken for asking the wrong kind of questions about her brother Steele and Zinc’s deaths. Questions that led her to Red Wolf.
Zinc had always been attracted to Sarah, but she was off limits because of being his best friends sister. Now she was being held a sexual captive. His mission is to get her out. A mission that rapidly goes to hell.
Forced to bail on the plane after discovering Titanium’s pilot was working with Red Wolf. Then not able to return to headquarters because of possible infiltration. Sarah and Zinc/Zach are on the run until it’s safe to go in.
Zinc has migraines and issues with wrong words after one due to his healing brain.
A favorite passage is from the first stop on their journey.
“Do you know what I meant although I said the wrong thing? Probably if I try to self correct over the next few minutes I will continue to misspeak. So, I’m hoping you know what I…”As an answer, she placed the keycard in his outstretched hand. “Don’t worry, I speak Zach.”
He laughed at her response, the reaction catching him by surprise. “Then you’d be the only one. I’m not sure I speak me anymore.”

Sarah has always fantasized about Zach, she figured she wasn’t his type. She couldn’t have been more wrong. These guys fall hard and fast, Zach is no exception.The action is intense and the sex is hotter than hot. And all that’s before her brother finds out.

A big step in taking down any organization is finances. That is Russell “Francium” Burke’s Mission. While they had already been manipulating things so money was being heavily lost. The position they now had Remington Reagan, Red Wolf’s CFO, in was becoming critical and Russell was positioning himself to be his replacement.
Lara London-Reagan was trapped in a loveless marriage, held captive by actions she confessed to her husband before they were married. She’d about reached the end of her rope when she caught their new neighbor watching them having sex.
One thing about all these books is the strength of the women, Lara is no exception and she puts herself at great risk.
A favorite quote.

I do love the ways the Elite crew persuade co-operation. Again this will cause a change in the initial plans but hey, whatever works.More surprises and hold your breath moments as Lara and Russell explore their relationship. This one with a little kink.

As a teenager, I would hide in my room to read my favorite romance novels when I was supposed to be doing my homework. I hope, these days, that my parents think it was worth it.
I am the mother of three adorable boys and I am fortunate to be married to my best friend. I live in Austin Texas where I am determined to eat all the barbecue in town.
I am in love with science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal and try to use all of these elements in my writing. I’ve been told I’m a little bloodthirsty so I hope that when you read my work you’ll enjoy the action packed ride that always ends in romance. I love to write series because I love to see characters develop over time and it always makes me happy to see my favorite characters make guest appearances in other books.
In my world anything is possible, anything can happen, and you should suspect that it will.
I’d love to hear from you!
