Lighthouse Security Investigations

The Lighthouse SI Keepers were men and women from the SEALs, Rangers, Special Forces, Deltas, and AF Special Ops. All having been trained in CIA Special Ops, the Keepers were the best of the best and ready to take on any mission.

Julie Baxter, chaperone to three teenage girls to the Mayan ruins in Mexico was having the vacation of a lifetime. Everything was perfect until an earthquake shattered their world. Now, stuck with no way to get out, they needed a rescuer. Good thing one of the girl’s father was a Senator who knew just who to call.

James Walker, a former SEAL & CIA Special Ops and now a Keeper for Lighthouse Security, was known for quick analysis of missions gone awry. He and another Keeper flew to Mexico for the simple pick-up of the four stranded women.

One thing after another goes wrong and he finds himself hiding in a Mayan temple with the beautiful Julie after his fellow Keeper is able to get the teens home safely.

On the run, they discover love among the ruins in the tropical paradise but when danger follows her back to the States, can he keep her safe once again? And, will they have a chance at a happily ever after?

Scenes and language are similar to what you would find in an R-rated movie. 18+ readers only.

James Walker was a Navy SEAL, he joined Lighthouse Security Investigations after being medically discharged. He possesses a unique ability to know when something’s going to happen. At least that’s how it seems when he is startled awake for no apparent reason.

Julie Baxter is the chaperone for three young women from Florida, Tiffany, a Senator’s daughter, and her friends Andrea and Jackie. They are touring the Mayan ruins in Mexico with a very knowledgeable and amiable guide, Hernando.

I really loved the descriptions of these ruins, they have been on my must see list for a very long time. I felt like I was climbing the pyramids with them. It was a delightful time until the earthquake hit and threw everything into chaos.

Tiffany’s father calls in LSI, Drew and Walker are set to go. Unfortunately the helicopter they procure isn’t big enough for everyone. It’s decided that Walker would stay behind with Julie.

This is a favorite scene.

Stay where he puts me? Who does he think I am? A dog? Julie seethed all the way down the steps of the temple, and when she reached the bottom, she plopped down on the hard stone. Practicality set in, and she had no idea where they would go or how they would get there. While the area surrounding the temples Chichén Itzá had been cleared of the jungle, it was still all around.

Suddenly very tired, she leaned forward, propping her elbows on her knees and her hands on her cheeks. She could not hear his footsteps but felt the electricity in the air as Walker came nearer.

He sat down next to her, his hard thigh pressing against hers. That slight gesture should have offended her, but instead, the warmth exuding from his body felt comforting. Sighing, she lifted her head and twisted to look at him. “So, what do we do?”

His lips curved slightly, and he shook his head.

“What?” she asked, her voice sharper than she intended. His grin widened, and his blue eyes held her captive. Swallowing audibly, she sucked in her lips, wondering what fatigue was doing to her.

“You just surprise me,” he said. “That’s all.”

Her head tilted in question, but instead of explaining more, he continued, “So… next? I’m going to slip over to the resort and obtain transportation.”

Blinking, her mouth dropped open. “We’re going back to where the looters are? We’re going to get transportation? How on earth are we going to do that?” Her voice rose with each word, and she shifted slightly away so that she could twist her body to face him, instantly missing the contact of their legs pressed together.

“I didn’t say we.”

“What?”

Speaking slowly, he repeated, “I didn’t say we. I said I was going to go to the resort and obtain transportation.”

“You? As in you by yourself?”

Chuckling, he replied, “That’s generally what I means.”

Narrowing her eyes, she asked, “Are you trying to piss me off?”

“No, ma’am. I’m telling you what my plan is. You’ll stay here, out of sight, and I’ll get to the resort, find something suitable, and bring it here for you. We’ll then take back roads and get the fuck outta here.”

Looking down at her clasped hands, she tried to still her racing thoughts. The idea of staying at the ruins by herself held no appeal, but uncertainty at how he did his job put her at a disadvantage.

“Hey,” he said, giving her a slight shoulder bump. “You’ll be fine here. Go back up to the top, stay hidden, and I’ll be back before you know it.”

Barely whispering, she asked, “What do I do if you don’t come back?”

He placed his hand on her shoulder, giving it a little squeeze, and the tingle she had felt earlier returned. When Drew had placed his hand on her shoulder, she had felt nothing. Refusing to think on that, she looked up into his face again.

His icy blue eyes were now warm, and she sucked in a deep breath.

“I promise I’ll be back, quicker than you’ll realize. But you’ve also got Drew’s number if you need to reach him.”

She let out a breath and stood. “Okay. I have no choice but to trust you.”

“And do you?” he asked, his gaze roving over her face.

She remained quiet for a moment before lifting her chin. “Yes. I do.” Shoulders hunched, she added, “I don’t really have a choice.”

“I can accept that, Julie,” he said. “You don’t know me. You don’t know the kind of job I do. You don’t know the kind of man I am. But you will.”

He held her gaze, and his penetrating eyes stared deep inside of her, soothing the jagged edges of her fears. Somehow, she felt as though this man would do anything, go to any lengths to keep her safe.

“Okay,” she whispered, not able to come up with another response. If his smile was any indication, it was the only response he needed.

Staying ahead of cartel and looters isn’t easy and these two have some interesting nights as they travel through the jungle. With beautiful scenery and more ruins, the heat between them kicks up a notch or three.

More changes, more twists and even more excitement back home. I really can’t wait for the next book in this series. I really love all these characters.

Maryann Jordan

1cf2a-addtogoodreads

Sophie Bayles was devastated by grief when her beloved brother, a soldier, had been killed in action when she was a teenager. Guarding her heart, she left Baytown and the boy she had loved…her brother’s best friend.

Callan Ward lucked out when he was assigned to the Coast Guard station in his hometown of Baytown. Back with the Baytown Boys and his family, the desire to leave again was no longer what he wanted. There was only one thing missing…Sophie. The girl who left, finding the memories in Baytown too painful.

Ten years after she left, Sophie is older, wiser, missing home, and jumps at the chance to return to Baytown for a temporary job. Reconnecting with the man she rejected after her brother’s funeral was not on her agenda, but she discovered that in trying to guard her heart, she had only cut herself off from true love.

As she and Callan grow closer, discovering their feelings had not changed, she stumbles into suspicious activity near her work.

Having promised to guard her heart, Callan and his friends work to make sure Sophie is safe before someone decides to quiet her permanently.

Language and scenes are similar to what you would find in an R-rated movie. 18+ readers only.

Barnes and Noble logo_150 ibooks-logo-150x150KoboLogogoogle_play_logo_002_002 smashwords_logo

In this book we delve into the past. We heard about Phillip, he’s the only Baytown Boy that didn’t come home from the war. Right there has me tearing up. Sophie is his sister and Callen his best-friend and their neighbor.

We get to see the relationship between the three of them, but most important the one between Callen and Sophie. She fell in love with him as a child, when a simple act of kindness set their bond.

Phillip’s death impacted everyone, but it totally broke Sophie and she in turn broke the relationship between her and Callen. Her reasoning was only to guard her heart from more pain.

This is a favorite scene, oh the tears.

Their houses were only a few blocks from the town pier, and they walked silently out to the end. Leaning her elbows on the rail, she sucked in a deep breath of salty air and closed her eyes to the setting sun.

“I can’t imagine this place without him,” she said, her words barely heard over the breeze. “Not just my house, but every part of this town has Philip imprinted on it.”

“I know,” Callan agreed, his arms on the railing, touching hers.

They fell into another silence, both seemingly lost in their thoughts. The warmth of his arm began to seep into her, and just as she opened her mouth to tell him how glad she was that he was here, he spoke suddenly.

“I leave tomorrow.”

Her head jerked around, and she asked, “Back to base?” His silence stretched, and renewed fear begin to claw at her heart. “What? What aren’t you telling me?”

“I’m being deployed,” he said, turning to face her, his hands on her shoulders. “I didn’t want to tell you because I didn’t want you to worry. But we’re being called up under the Department of Navy.”

Her mouth opened, but the words halted in her throat.

“There are a lot of oil rigs in the water of the Middle East,” he began. “I can’t tell you much, but we’re needed to help protect that.”

The fear in her heart began pounding, but she could barely feel it over the roar in her ears. “You’re going over there? You’re going to be in danger?”

“It was always a risk, Sophie,” he said, anguish in his voice. “I don’t want to hurt you, but I wanted you to know. I wanted us to—”

She stepped backward, out of his reach, her head moving slowly back and forth as she whispered, “No. I can’t do this… not again. I can’t risk this… not again. I’m sorry… I’ve got to guard my heart.”

Callan followed Sophie, keeping his eyes on her until he was sure she made it home safely. Oh, Sophie… I would have guarded your heart. He walked into his house, hugged both of his parents and went upstairs to his room. His heart was splintered with grief for his best friend and agony for his best friend’s sister, the girl he knew he loved… and now, would never have.
Maryann Jordan. ARC for Guarding Your Heart: Not for sale, sharing, or distribution (Kindle Locations 406-427).

Sophie left Baytown too, for college and then stayed away for work. An opportunity that becomes spoiled by a co-worker and her bosses reactions.

Striking out on her own an opportunity arises that she can’t turn down and also has her returning to Baytown.

Callen has been stationed in Baytown for quite a while and enjoys being close to home, with his friends settling down he finds himself in a dilemma as his enlistment is nearing the end. Re-up or retire.

I did a lot of tearing up in this book, this story tugs the heart-strings with memories and reunions. Of course there’s plenty of intrigue that Sophie manages to stumble onto.

Intrigue, action, romance, tears and simmer to sizzle heat, make this a must read.

Jayden: Heroes at Heart Book 5 By Maryann Jordan



Jayden
Heroes At Heart Book 5
By

1cf2a-addtogoodreads

Jayden Chapman may have always been the quieter twin, but deep inside lay the heart of a protector.

When he came upon a young woman stranded on the side of the road, he recognized her as someone he had seen before…and not been able to help. Determined to not let history repeat itself, he befriended her, as well as took care of her car.

Ruby Mantle had worked hard for years, just to pay the bills and take care of her grandmother. The weight of the world was on her shoulders and she was wary of the large man who came to rescue her. But, soon, she learned that Jayden was determined to help her in any way that he could.

Allowing love to bloom as their friendship grew, life began looking up for them. But, then a problem from her past reared its ugly head, and Jayden stepped in to protect her once more.

Loosely based on Little Red Riding Hood.

Scenes in the book are similar to what you would find in an R-rated movie. 18+ readers only.

Barnes and Noble logo_150 ibooks-logo-150x150KoboLogo

I love these fairy-tale based stories by Maryann. Definitely a different twist. I also love the fact that she delves into the originals as well as the revised versions of these tales.

In this one, Jayden finds frustration as well as love when he takes a different route home from dinner at Aunt Ethel’s.

Ruby is trying to mow the lawn at her grandmother’s in preparation for her return home from rehab, unfortunately the lawn mower isn’t cooperating.

Jayden sees her struggling, her red hooded jacket had caught his eye. When he stops to see if he can assist, he is surprised. This wasn’t a child as he first thought, but a beautiful woman. Unfortunately he has to back away when a man appears in the doorway. He doesn’t want to make things worse for this woman.

However fate does smile on him when he encounters this woman again.

This is a favorite scene.

Bringing his thoughts back to the ride, he left the country road and moved onto a slightly busier road heading back into town. The traffic was not heavy, but he was forced to go a little slower. Up ahead, he could see cars slowing as they moved around a vehicle that had pulled to the side of the road, their lights flashing, indicating a problem.

Not one fucker is stopping to help, he grumbled to himself, flipping on his blinker and moving to the shoulder. The sight of an oversized, red hoodie grabbed his attention. His breath caught in his throat as the driver who had been standing to the side of the immobile car turned and faced him. Ruby! Her wide, blue eyes stared at him, and this time he saw a flash of confusion as she tilted her head to the side, her mouth open slightly.

Swinging his leg over his bike, he pulled his helmet off, his hair curling about his shoulders. Walking over, he could not deny the sense of pleasure he felt at seeing her again.

“What’s the trouble?” he asked, observing her cross her arms in front of her tightly. Recognizing the defensive posture, he stopped several feet away from her.

“I don’t know,” she replied, her voice as soft as he remembered. She glanced back toward her car and said, “It’s been running a little funny for a long time, but I was hoping that it would keep going a bit longer.”

“May I take a look?”

She sucked in her lips, then nodded her reply.

He walked around her, making sure to not pass too closely, opened the hood and peered inside. It only took a few minutes to determine that the repair would not be something quick he could fix on the side of the road. She had edged closer to him and was now standing at his side, looking at the engine, as well. He glanced down, observing her hand resting on the metal of the frame. Her wrists were thin and her fingers delicate. She was just as tiny as he remembered.

“I’m embarrassed to say I don’t know anything about cars,” she said, her eyes moving from the engine up to his. “I just always stick the key in the ignition and pray that it starts and gets me where I need to go.”

He smiled as light pink dusted her cheeks. “Don’t be embarrassed. That’s a lot more common than you think. But you’re in luck because I’m a mechanic.”

Her eyes widened, and the shy smile she offered warmed his heart. “Seriously?”

Pleasure shot through him at her beautiful smile directed at him, and he nodded. “Yeah.” He reached for his wallet and pulled out a business card, handing it to her. “That’s me, Jayden. Jayden Chapman.”

She stared at the card in her hand, studying it before looking back up. “I’m Ruby. Ruby Mantle.”

“I’m pleased to meet you, Ruby. And even though I own a mechanic shop, I don’t actually advise that people ignore their cars. I’d rather see people take care of their automobiles and know what they need to do so that they don’t end up stranded on the side of the road.”

She glanced around at the traffic passing by, her brow lowered as her lips thinned into a grimace. He had not meant to lose her smile but did want her to realize she had put herself in a precarious situation. “Hey, but don’t worry. I’ll call for one of my men to bring out a tow truck, and we’ll you get you back to the shop.”

“Oh… um… okay.” Worry lines appeared on her brow, and her mouth tightened even more.

He felt concern rolling off her and rushed to say, “Don’t worry about the cost. You didn’t call for our service. I came across you and volunteered. So that means we’ll tow you for free.” He hoped his offer would work, but her eyes pinned him to the spot.

“I know that can’t possibly be true,” she said, shaking her head. She bit her lip and glanced back down to the car engine. Finally, heaving a sigh, she nodded. “I don’t want to be towed for free, but I know I’m in a pickle. I’ve got to get back to town to check on my grandmother, and I’ve got to get my car fixed. If I can’t get to work, I can’t get paid.”

Relief flooded him that she was going to allow him to help.
Maryann Jordan. Jayden: Heroes at Heart (Kindle Locations 580-612).

Jayden really has to work at getting Ruby’s trust. She has been let down in many ways by the only boyfriend she’s had. Plus he has to prove to her that his help comes without strings.

Ruby’s grandmother is a wise woman, and it’s her influence that allows Ruby to accept the help she needs.

A heartfelt story with plenty of emotion, love and just enough sizzle to the relationship.

SEAL Together – Silver SEALs Book 2 By Maryann Jordan



Welcome to Silver SEALs!
The New Wave From The Suspense Sisters!

Retired silver fox US Navy SEAL Commanders who sign on with the Department of Homeland Security to lead missions to protect the homeland.

SEAL Together

1cf2a-addtogoodreads

Love had never worked out for US Navy SEAL Commander Eric Lopez during his twenty-five years of active duty. Now, with a forced medical retirement, he was bored…and still alone. When asked to work for a DHS Secret Division Command, he jumped at the chance.

Dr. Lydia Hughes, a veterinarian at the new National Bio and Agro-defense Facility in Kansas, had been a widow for years. She spent more time with the animals she was in charge of than looking for a man. Meeting Eric knocked her on her ass…literally.

A contingency of foreign scientists and journalists will be visiting the facility and the cyber security chatter is that someone there will be threatening the facility.

Her workplace is embroiled in controversy and with his background in biology, Eric is the perfect choice to go in to assess the situation as part of the foreign delegation, never expecting to fall for a beautiful veterinarian.

Lydia takes a chance on love again with a man she thinks is a journalist. But, just her luck, she ends up in the hands of kidnappers who have mistaken her for a lead scientist.

Eric pulls together a team and they race to find Lydia before the kidnappers discover they have the wrong person and dispose of her. Saving her life is his mission. Falling for the beautiful doctor became the unexpected reward.

**Scenes in the book are similar to what you would find in an “R” rated movie. Intended for readers 18+.**

Barnes and Noble logo_150 ibooks-logo-150x150KoboLogo

One of things I really liked about this book is that Erick Lopez didn’t have to change his name for his mission. He portrays himself as a journalist so he really didn’t have to lie to very much to Lydia as they got to know each other.

While the way Lydia and Eric meet was oh so very good, their second meeting was the one that I loved more.

This was a favorite scene.

He watched as the tall, dark-haired veterinarian walked forward, an easy manner about him. Calling for the group to follow him, the affable young man turned and led them down the hall he had come from. “Nice to meet you, Dr. Hughes,” Eric said, as they fell in step, the other journalists right behind.

“Oh, I’m not Dr. Hughes. I’m Jim, Dr. Hughes’ intern. I was called to escort you to our work area. We are down a person today, so Dr. Hughes is incredibly busy.” As though concerned his words had sounded unfriendly, Jim rushed to add, “You’re really lucky to have the chance to meet her. She’s an excellent veterinarian and dedicated this organization. She’s very knowledgeable about porcine.”

“Young and fresh out of veterinary medical school?” Egor asked, an edge to his harsh voice.

Eric caught the disdain in Egor’s question and glanced to the side to see what Jim’s response would be.

Jim’s eyes narrowed, as he replied, “Dr. Hughes is not fresh out of veterinary school. She practiced in the field for a number of years before joining the NBAF.”

As they walked down the hall, Jim’s voice lowered just for Eric’s ears. “If he acts like a jackass around her, I might be tempted to take him out behind the woodshed.”

Eric held back his grin, but admired Jim’s loyalty. “Have you worked with her long?”

“No, she came on board when the facility opened, and I’ve only been her intern for about two months. I wasn’t kidding when I said she was a good veterinarian, but she’s also just a really nice person. She was widowed years ago and raised her daughter, who’s now in college, on her own, all while finishing her degrees. She’s one of those people who can handle whatever is thrown at her. We were just told a couple of days ago that she would be working with you guys, but she jumped in, ready to do her part.”

They moved through several sets of doors, down long halls twisting and turning as they approached the back side of the facility. Jim raised his voice to address the whole group as he said, “We have a number of veterinarians on staff to take care of the animals that we have here. It’s my understanding that your focus on our facility is specifically dealing with the outbreak of African Swine Fever. You’ll be spending the next day with the pigs.” With that introduction, Jim pushed through the next set of doors and the group walked in.

Finding himself standing in a large room housing multiple pens, Eric jolted at the sudden cacophony of pigs grunting and squealing, as well as the odor of straw, dirt, feed, and only a hint of fecal matter. A woman wearing navy scrubs, with her feet jammed in muddy, rubber boots, was standing with her back to them, a hose in her hand as she filled a water trough.

Eric was further shocked at the size of the pigs in the pen that she was in. Jesus, I thought they were little piglets. A large pig bumped into the woman, and her feet slipped on the wet floor. Too far away to assist, he watched as she fell to her ass. Scrambling, she jumped up, planted her hands on her now wet hips. Looking down, she fussed at the pig.

“Dr. Hughes!” Jim yelled.

The woman looked up, and he was surprised yet again, even more so than from the sound and the smells in the room. The woman whose ass was now covered in wet mud, was none other than his Lydia. The instant her gaze landed on him, her smile dropped from her face, and her eyes widened in shock. He started to smile, but her eyes quickly narrowed, and she glared.

What the fuck?
Maryann Jordan. SEAL Together – ARC copy: Silver SEALs (Kindle Locations 868-895).

Indeed Eric has some explaining to do he just doesn’t know why. I loved the interaction between them as Eric collects the information he needs for NSA. His information specialist Chris had me giggling more than once.

It was also fun to see folks from other Maryann Jordan books, Mace and Rank from Lighthouse Security, Bart from Saints Protection and even Logan from Sleeper SEALs become part of Eric’s team in the pursuit of the bad guys.

Plenty of intrigue, action and heat surround this story, making it my favorite so far.

I can’t wait to read the next one.

Alvarez Security Agency
Former Special Forces brothers-in-arms now working together to provide an elite security service in the southern city of Richmond.

Jobe Delaro served proudly with his Special Forces squad, but to focus on his duties he gave up the one woman he had planned on spending his life with. Four years later, seeing his friends find love reminded him that he had never forgotten the woman whose heart he broke.

Mackenna Dunn worked tirelessly with the women’s center that she ran and assisting her mother who was recuperating from a stroke. She had tried to forget the man who had stolen her happiness, but was stunned to have him come to her rescue when her program was threatened by gangs.

Mackenna must decide if she can forgive Jobe or hold on to the hurt. Calling on his brothers from Alvarez Security, Jobe is determined to make up for the past and create a future with the woman he never stopped loving, but…he has to keep her alive first.

Will the past forever halt their chance at a future or will McKenna and Jobe finally find healing together?

Scenes and language are similar to what you would find in an R-rated movie. 18+ readers only.

I took a break after reading Vinny because I needed to know about Shane, Matt and BJ. The Love’s Trilogy covers their stories and also how Tony and Sherrie meet. Now I’m caught up and Jobe is the last of the Alvarez series. At least up to this point.

At one point Jobe was with the one woman who made his life worth living, then an incident overseas causes him to break it off with her. Now home, and working with Alvarez Security, having undergone therapy which has helped his version of PTSD, he wants to find happiness. He just doesn’t expect to find it, he never got over Mackenna.

Mackenna is now a social worker and friends with Gabe’s wife Jennifer. Yet there hasn’t been an occasion where Jobe and Mackenna would run into each other. Until now. As director of New Beginnings, a program that helps women and girls get away from gangs and hopefully prevent them from joining as well, she is tough, determined and underfunded.

When Jennifer realizes how little security Mac has at the New Beginnings house. She enlists Gabe to present it to Tony as a possible pro bono job.

This is a favorite scene when Tony and some of the team come to evaluate the security needs.

Just then, a scream coming from the front of the building startled the group. Jobe, closest to the hallway, sprinted forward as he heard a woman’s voice yell, “Call the police, Rose!” He caught a glimpse of a slender woman’s back, hair pulled up on her head, as she raced down the stairs and made it to the door ahead of him, grabbing a baseball bat next to the door.

Throwing it open, Mackenna charged out onto the stoop, wielding the bat in the air. “I’m calling the police you fuckers. Get outta here,” she screamed at the same low-riding car, this time with the passenger side windows rolled down and several guys hanging out giving her the finger.

“You can’t hide forever, bitch!” one yelled.

“Bring it, you bast—umph,” she grunted as she was grabbed around the waist from behind and lifted off of the ground, her back slammed against a tall, hard body. Her reddish-gold hair fell out of the makeshift twist and tumbled down her back.

“Are you fucking crazy?” asked the enraged voice of the man who had picked her up easily, his arm binding her tightly. “You provoke those bastards and you’re just asking for trouble,” he growled.

Realizing that the front stoop had become crowded with whom she could only assume was Tony Alvarez and more of his men than she knew was coming, she saw Jennifer, wide-eyed looking at her.

“Mac? Are you okay?” Jennifer asked, glancing at Jobe holding on to Mackenna, a strange expression on his face.

“Let go of me, you big oaf,” Mackenna said, struggling against the unforgiving vise grip of the man holding her.

She found herself immediately released but instead of freedom, she was whirled around to face her would-be rescuer. And stared into the face of the man who had haunted her memories. His face, older and harder than she remembered. His build…heavier, even more muscular. And his expression? Shock. Pure shock.

Her chest heaving as she tried to catch her breath, she pushed against him almost tumbling backward down the front stoop stairs. His hands automatically reached out and grabbed her upper arms, saving her from falling. Not wanting him to touch her, she pushed again.

“Settle,” he growled. “You’re gonna fucking fall if you keep this up.”

Righting herself, she straightened up trying to regain her dignity. Don’t let him see you stare. Don’t give him that. Steeling herself, she turned toward the man matching the internet picture of Tony Alvarez and held out her hand.

“You must be Mr. Alvarez. I’m Mackenna Dunn, director of New Beginnings.”

Tony, Gabe, and Vinny stared at her as though she had sprouted three heads. The woman who one minute ago was wielding a baseball bat threatening street thugs was now attempting a composed and serene expression. And for some reason had rocked Jobe’s world by the stunned expression on his face. Then it hit all three of them at the same instance. Mackenna Dunn. The name they had heard over and over when stationed in Afghanistan. At least before…

Tony, quickly recovering, took her hand and shook it gently. “You’re right, Ms. Dunn. I’m Tony Alvarez, but please call me Tony.”

Mackenna nodded, replying, “Mackenna. Although some just call me Mac.” She gave Jennifer an evil eye, but Jennifer only laughed.

Tony introduced the twins, Gabe and Vinny, and then nodded behind her and said, “And this is Jobe. Jobe Delaro.”

She knew she had to glance behind her but for all the world, she could not bring herself to do it. Maybe he’ll just disappear. Be gone. Maybe he was just an illusion.

“Hello Mackenna,” came the very real voice behind her. His simple words moved over her like lava. Smooth, flowing. And fucking will burn me if I let them!

Taking a fortifying breath, she turned back around avoiding his gaze. Show him I don’t care. She lifted her eyes to his penetrating stare and her mind stumbled as much as the words trying to come out of her mouth.

“H…Hi…um…hello, Jobe.”

He stared back into the face of the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. Her red-blonde hair still appeared to be a lion’s mane. She’d put on a couple of pounds since college but from where he was standing they looked great on her. Light, brown eyes that tried to focus anywhere but at him. Fuck! Of course, they would want to look anywhere but at him. His mind locked up, wondering what he could possibly say to her.
Jordan, Maryann. Jobe: Alvarez Security Series (pp. 49-52). Kindle Edition.

After Jobe gets over the shock of seeing her, and discovers she’s not taken, he’s determined to win her back. They have a lot to reconcile and plenty of problems with regard to New Beginnings and the gangs the women left.

Many hold your breath scenes, laughter, and tears will keep you turning the pages.

I can’t wait to see what’s next!

I have always been an avid reader. My early memories were of my mother taking me to the library and allowing me to check out as many books as I could carry. My favorite books were checked out numerous times and read over and over. I would use my Barbie dolls to play out the scenes in books (such as Nancy Drew!).

I have written as a hobby for many years (probably since childhood). I have written devotionals, autobiographical writings about having a severely handicapped, medically fragile child, about my mother’s Alzheimer’s, and other subjects that interest me.

I joke that I “cut my romance teeth” on the old historical romance books. In 2013, I started a blog to showcase wonderful writers. In 2014, I finally gave in to the characters in my head pleading for their story to be told. Thus, Emma’s Home was created.

I worked as a counselor in a high school and was involved in education for the past 30 years, until retiring in 2015. I have been married to a wonderfully patient man for 35 years and have 2 adult, very supportive daughters. When writing, my dog or one of my cats will usually be found in my lap!

***Due to language that some will consider crude and sexual scenes of an explicit nature, readers need to be 18+ ***

When trust is broken by loss and grief, can it ever be repaired?

High school sweethearts and young lovers, Brad and Suzy had vowed to stay together forever. “I’ll always be here for you. Trust me,” Brad promised but loss separated the young lovers. Moving on with their lives, neither could fill the empty void nor forget their first love.

Suzanne McDonald had closed herself off to dating in spite of the best efforts of her friends to play matchmaker and threw herself into her job as a veterinarian technician.

Brad, now known as BJ to his friends, had focused on his career as a computer programmer for Alverez Security Agency.

When a mutual friend played matchmaker between BJ and Suzanne, the two were stunned to be reunited.

Her grief, still raw after all these years, had her running away once again. Brad knew he had let her leave years ago when he was a young man but now vowed to show her that they were still meant for each other. In spite of the walls she had built around her heart, Brad was determined to break them down and earn her love and trust once again.

When Suzanne stumbles across evidence of organized crime taking place in her neighborhood, she puts herself at risk trying to save others.

Can Brad rescue Suzy before she is silenced permanently? Can she trust in Brad’s love to save her?

Barnes and Noble logo_150 ibooks-logo-150x150KoboLogo

I knew something was up with Suzanne since she only goes home to visit at infrequent times. I just couldn’t figure out what it was.

The unavoidable happens when Lily tries to get BJ from Alvarez Security and Suzanne from Annie’s Veterinarian Clinic together at Shane and Annie’s wedding.

This is a favorite and jaw dropping scene.

Don’t try to fix me up with someone. You know I’m not interested.”

Lily speared her with a sympathetic look. “Honey, I know you were hurt a long time ago. And I know you grieve for something lost. I just want to see you happy.”

Smiling at the couple in front of her, she gave a little shrug as she whispered, “I had happy once. But when it’s broken, there’s no getting it back.”

She stood and then kissed the top of Lily’s head as she said, “I’m going to go mingle with some old friends. You two have fun.” Winking at Matt, she floated away.

One table, in particular, caught her attention. Four large, handsome men sat around the table, as comfortable in their suits as they would be in a biker bar. Tony Alvarez ran a security company that had helped save Annie when she had been kidnapped earlier in the year. Gabe, Vinny, and Jobe sat with him with one chair empty. Having all served in the military together, each man brought their own special skills to their new civilian careers. Tony had been the squad leader and maintained that position in his new business. While they all seemed like brothers to her, she knew that the table full of hard, handsome men would catch the eye of any single women at the wedding…and probably a few married ones as well. They all stood as she approached and Gabe leaned over to give her a hug and a brotherly kiss on her cheek. Greeting them, she nodded toward the empty chair. “Who’s missing?” she asked.

Vinny, always the ladies’ man, jumped up to pull the chair out for her. “Why you, of course.”

Laughing, she punched his shoulder as his twin Gabe responded, “It’s for BJ. He’s on his way from a family event.”

Raising her eyebrow at this news, she had the feeling that BJ’s co-workers and friends were just as anxious for her to meet him as Lily was. “Hmmm, well we’ll see if he shows.”

Giving each man a hug, she made her way over to another table. She saw some old family friends from Fairfield, the town she grew up in, so she moved over to greet them. Emma Campbell had been her high school counselor and had married her brother’s best friend, Jake. Along with them was Carol and Tom Rivers, another one of her brother’s best friends.

The two couples couldn’t believe that the beautiful woman in front of them was so grown up.

After hugs and greetings, Emma kept her arm around her, pulling her in tightly. “I miss you so much. Your mom’s bakery was never the same after you left home. But I’m so proud of what you’ve accomplished. Are you happy?”

“I love my job and working for Annie,” Suzanne effused. “I’m thinking about going back to school to become a veterinarian nurse. It would allow me to do a few more things than I can do right now. The animals are great and our clinic…well, I can’t think of a better place to work.”

Emma exclaimed, “Your enthusiasm for your job is overwhelming. But that still doesn’t tell me if you are happy.”

Suzanne found herself scrutinized by Emma’s thoughtful gaze. “I’m happy enough,” she replied, her smile not quite reaching her eyes.

“Do you ever see…” Emma began.

Shaking her head, Suzanne’s eyes widened. “Nope. And no, I’m not talking about it.”

Emma patted her shoulder before pulling her in for a tight hug. “It’s okay.” Giving a small smile, Suzanne was just getting ready to turn away when Lily came over to her. Besides Annie, Lily was her closest friend.

“Sweetie, come with me,” Lily said as she linked her arms through Suzanne’s.

“He’s here, right? Oh Lily, you know I hate this.”

“Come on. It’s just an introduction. All the guys at Tony’s really like him and you know how much he helped me last year.” Lily had stumbled across a prescription fraud scheme, and BJ had helped her with the software codes that contained the evidence they were looking for.

Suzanne allowed Lily to tug her through the crowded reception hall then heard her name called. She turned around to see Leon waving at her from across the room. He worked as a vet tech with Annie as well and was there with his wife. Behind her, she could hear Lily say, “BJ, I’d like you to meet…”

Suzanne turned around and stared into the eyes of the man she had been avoiding for four years. Gasping, she saw his eyes widen.

“BJ?”

“Suzy?”

Oh no, not him. Not now. Opening her mouth like a fish, she found that nothing came out. Just as he looked like he was going to say something, she quickly turned. “I have to get out of here,” she said, pushing her way through the crowd.
Jordan, Maryann. Love’s Trusting: The Love’s Series. Kindle Locations (147-181). Kindle Edition.

To say that Suzanne’s reaction to seeing BJ was surprising is an understatement. Although this is definitely where some of the fun begins, as BJ declares he’s not letting her get away again.

As BJ tries to win back the heart of the only girl he’s ever loved, owners not returning for follow-up on their pets has Susanne visiting them at home.  Unfortunately this is drawing attention to herself and Annie’s clinic that she doesn’t even realize.

A convoluted and intriguing tale brings us not only to dogfighting and human trafficking but also BJ’s and Suzanne’s relationship takes off with enough heat to melt your kindle. There’s an added bonus of the beginning of another relationship involving Alvarez Security’s Tony.

I really the way this series has tied everything together for me.

Winter Blog Review

I love Matt, his insecurities brought on by women who only see his scarred face are heartbreaking. He doesn’t feel worthy of love. He’s meeting Shane and some of the guys from Alvarez Security for drinks when he helps out a lovely lady at the bar.

Lily is an introverted software engineer, in her spare time she’s more likely to curl up with a good book or movie than go out. It seems fate lends a hand when Lily is to meet some coworkers for a drink but they don’t make it and she’s waiting for another ride.

This is a favorite scene when these two meet.

Matt nodded to himself. Yep, the scar gets them every time. Glancing at his watch to see how much longer he needed to wait, his attention was caught by the movement at the other end of the bar.

There she was. Sitting alone looking lost, nursing her drink. Beautiful. Long, dark blonde curls down her back. A pixie face with dark brown eyes. And her clothes…in a room of scantily clad women she was dressed simply. Green blouse. Black slacks. Low-heeled boots. And yet, the whole package together was gorgeous.

And he wasn’t the only one noticing. Glancing around, he saw the predatory eyes of a number of men scoping her out. She’s sitting there looking like a lost lamb in a room full of wolves and doesn’t have a clue. Seeing two men start to walk over to the bar, he suddenly had the urge to intervene. To protect. To claim. Claim? Where the hell did that come from? Matt hadn’t wanted to claim a woman since…don’t go there.

Debating for only a second, he stood up and stalked over to the bar, sliding onto the stool as though it were his own. Turning to the beautiful woman, he smiled and said, “Sorry I’m late baby.”

Her eyes grew wide as she peered into his, her brow lifted in question.

The two men stopped in their advance toward her and retreated, scowling. She turned her head slightly to see them leave, releasing a sigh of relief.

“Didn’t mean to scare you but you looked like you could use a little help,” he explained.

She turned her face back to his, beaming her smile his way. “Well, I thought it was a horrible pick-up line but now that I know it was just pretended, thank you.”

Her smile pulled him in as he took the opportunity to gaze at her up close. She’s looking at my face but not focusing on the scar.

“Well, if you want a bad pick-up line, how’s this? I haven’t seen you here before.”

Ducking her head, she smiled. “I’m not big on the social scene, but I had a tough day at work, and I was supposed to meet a co-worker here tonight. But…she had to cancel, and I’ve called a friend to come pick me up. So I’m just killing a little bit of time until she can get here.”

He found himself wondering about her. Her bad day at work. Her friends. After going a year with little interest in forming any relationship, he felt drawn to her and wanted to keep her talking.

“So what do you do in this job that gives you bad days?”

She laughed. “Nothing very exciting for me to tell. I’m a software engineer.” She halted as she watched his expression. “Your eyes haven’t glazed over with boredom yet,” she joked. “As soon as I tell guys what I do, they usually either fall asleep or find someone else more exciting to talk to.”

“Then you haven’t been talking to the right men.”

Her eyes stared into his, seeing nothing but sincerity.

“Maybe you’re right,” she said softly.

He heard longing in her voice and a flash of sadness in her eyes, finding himself wanting to take away both and yet strangely glad that no one had taken them away before him.

“So what do you as a software engineer?”

“I work as a contractor. I go into different companies and design whatever software they need. Currently, I work at medical facility. I’m designing some new software for them.”

“Sounds interesting.”

Laughing again, she responded, “Oh now you’re exaggerating! No one thinks what I do is interesting.” She smiled more gently and continued, “But it’s interesting to me. And…it’s…safe.”

“Safe?”

“Yeah, I’m not much of a risk-taker, you know? I like using my mind and honestly – I like working in a quiet environment that doesn’t have a lot of people around. I get to go in and do my thing and then leave and go to another place. I don’t really like being around a lot of people.”

Silence settled between the two of them for a moment as they let the loud noise from the rest of the bar fill in the quietness.

“What about you?” she asked.

“What do you do?”

“Well,” Matt started, looking discomfited. “I guess you could say I’m the ultimate risk-taker.” Looking at her quizzical expression, he said, “I’m a detective.”

Her eyebrows shot up in surprise, then shaking her head she admitted, “I wouldn’t have guessed that, but now that you have said it, I think it fits.”

“Fits?”

“Yeah. The desire to rescue, like you rescued me tonight. What kind of a detective are you?”

“Vice.”

“Oh,” she said, her brow furrowing. “Other than what I’ve seen with police shows on TV, I don’t even know what vice detectives do.”

Smiling along with her, he said, “Probably what you’ve watched on TV is right. Drugs, prostitution, gambling…things like that.”

Leaning forward with her elbows on the bar, she placed her chin on her hands, staring at him with big, chocolate chocolate eyes. “You must be very brave. I can’t image going into work every day not knowing what’s going to happen,” she admitted. “I go to work knowing exactly what needs to be worked on. What problem needs to be solved. I write codes to solve the problems. And when I’m done, I move on.”

“I don’t know that I would call my job brave. It’s just what I do; it’s who I am.”

The silence once again settled between them, but this time neither heard the noise of the bar around. It was as though everyone else had drifted away, leaving only the two of them in the midst of their own little world.

Matt realized that for the first time in a long time he was having a conversation with a woman who wasn’t staring at his scar. Or maybe, more importantly, she wasn’t trying to avoid it either. And because of that, he wasn’t thinking of it either.

“So what favorite TV detective show do you watch?”

“Oh my, that’s embarrassing to even admit. But I do have to say that I like the reality show Cops.”

Leaning back on his stool smiling, he said, “Okay, I take back what I said earlier. That…is probably less realistic than some of the fictional shows on.”

“Yeah, well, you won’t find any shows, reality or not, about a software engineer. We’re just too nerdy for cameras.”

Deciding to find out more about her, he continued. “So if you don’t go out partying a lot, what do you do for fun?”

Rolling her eyes to the ceiling as though deep in thought, she admitted, “I’m really boring. I read a lot, take care of my rescue puppy…and oh, recently I’ve been learning how to run.”

“Learning how to run? Don’t you just put one foot in front of the other?” he joked.

Something flashed through her eyes, but before he could question it, it was gone.

She smiled once again, but it did not seem to reach her eyes this time. “Well, I guess I’m just clumsier than most.”

Wanting to make her comfortable again, he moved the topic to something else and quickly her warm eyes were staring into his once again. The conversation continued to flow between them as he relaxed. They laughed and talked about books, movies, places they had been and would like to visit.

Looking down at his beer, he realized that it was only half finished. And that felt good. Not staring at the evening through the bottom of a beer bottle. Looking back up at her, he caught her staring. Not at his scar. But once again into his eyes.

Seemingly embarrassed to have been caught staring, she looked at her watch, exclaiming that she needed to go catch her ride. Her eyes immediately went back to his, regret flashing through them.

“I’ll walk you out,” Matt said.
