Military duty called them away to war zones, but after tours overseas, the group of friends found their way back home as men, seeking the peaceful little seaside town. Now, the band of brothers, together once more, work to provide a place for less fortunate veterans to call home.

Mitch Evans left his career as an FBI agent after his father retired as the Baytown Police Chief. Returning home to take up the mantle, he was glad to be back with his family and the Baytown boys. The bonus? Reuniting with his childhood friend and teenage crush.

Victoria Bradford came back to Baytown to run the Sea Glass Inn after her grandmother’s death. A simpler life was what she yearned for. When the new Police Chief showed up on her doorstep, her heart skipped a beat as old memories came rushing back.

When one of Tori’s guests died from poisoning, Mitch was determined to stay objective while solving the murder. Then the evidence pointed to Tori as being the intended victim and another attempt was made on her life.

Mitch, desperate to find the killer before he strikes at Tori again, calls upon the Baytown Boys to assist, as he vows to protect her.

Warning!

Winter Blog Review

When I reviewed the latest in this series I said I was going back to read the rest to meet other characters in more depth. I meant it and I am so very glad I did.

The Baytown Boys are back in town, each doing something to benefit the town. In this first book we center on Mitch although we do meet all the others.

Mitch has his hands full with his new position of Chief of Police. There’s much he wants to upgrade, things he wants to change, not too quickly but a process.

The best part of coming home for him is Tori. He fell hard for her when he was only eight and those feelings have only grown over the years. He never really expected to find her in town though.

Tori only spent summers in Baytown, but she loved being there with her grandmother. With the passing of her grandmother she is now owner of the Sea Glass Inn. Being here has all the memories of her and Mitch and those summers coming invading her mind.

One of my favorite scenes after Tori and Mitch go on their first date as adults.

Sipping the wine, they relaxed, letting the years drift away, finding once more that time was easy between them.

“So you never married?” she asked, curiosity overriding common sense.

“Nope. Never found the right woman to spend my life with. When I get married, it’ll be for life… like my parents.”

As soon as the words were out of his mouth and he saw the hurt flash across her face, he wanted to pull them back in while simultaneously kicking himself in the ass.

“Jesus, Tori. I’m sorry.”

The silence was no longer easy, but strained. Finally, he said, “Can you tell me about your marriage?” He paused, and then added, “Only if you want to.”

She grimaced but forged ahead. “There’s not much to tell. I married a man I met through work. I think we were actually more friends than a great love and I was too naïve to understand the difference.”

“So what happened? Did you just grow apart?”

Her gaze drifted over his shoulder, as she admitted, “No… like you, I planned on being married for life. But, well, he… um… well, he cheated and I found out.”

“No fuckin’ way!” Mitch cursed, hating the insecurity he heard resounding in her voice.

Sitting up straighter, she met his angry stare. “Yep. I found out and hired someone to follow him to make sure. When I had all the evidence I needed, I confronted him. Told him I was leaving and I wanted a divorce. He didn’t want one. Swore it was all a mistake and he’d never stray again.”

She suddenly turned sideways, facing Mitch on the glider, bringing her face close to his. Taking a deep breath, she said, “As hurt as I was, I wasn’t tempted one little bit to take him back. You want to know what I discovered? Grandma always said I deserved someone special and Mitch, right there, at that moment, I knew he wasn’t special!”

Mesmerized by the strength in her words, he pulled her in for a kiss. Unlike the one at the restaurant, this kiss went from soft to a hard, wet kiss almost instantly. Delving his tongue inside her warm mouth, he tasted the wine and essence of her… drinking her in.

She relaxed into his embrace as he moved her closer. Reaching up, she cupped his face, finally allowing her fingertips to move over his close-shaven beard. His lips were strong and supple, moving over her mouth while his tongue tangled with hers.

Just when she slipped into a dreamlike state of kissing bliss, he moved away slightly. Her lips tried to maintain contact, but she opened her eyes to find him staring deeply into hers.

“You are special, Tori. I knew that the minute I saw you when I was eight and you were only six years old. And all these years later… I still know that. And your grandma was right.”
Maryann Jordan. Coming Home: The Baytown Boys Series (Kindle Locations 1038-1061).

It’s a fun read as we get to know Mitch and Tori’s past and watch them once again become a couple.

Now there are a couple of folks I’m not fond of and that’s the Mayor and the City Manager, oh and the Mayor’s secretary too. Can’t wait to see how they develop in future books.

With a threat to Tori but no obvious motive, things escalate quickly.

Fast paced with plenty of suspects, lots of friends and Tori and Mitch burn up the pages just about every time they’re together.

Winter Blog Blurb

Military duty called them away to war zones, but after tours overseas, the group of friends found their way back home as men, seeking the peaceful little seaside town. Now, the band of brothers, together once more, work to provide a place for less fortunate veterans to call home.

Lance Greene. Former military. Current artist…and recluse. Moving to Baytown was a chance to get away and forget. Forget his family’s expectations, forget the friends he lost on his last mission, and try to forget the nightmares that follow him. Staying away from people worked, until he met her. She was bright, happy, and everything he did not want.

Jade Lyons. Elementary teacher. Sea glass collector. New to Baytown, she embraced all the small town had to offer, loving the little town, her friends, her students, and her new habit of early morning walks on the beach to find sea glass. Until she met him. He was overbearing, rude, and everything she wanted to avoid.

But sea glass works magic and when Jade discovers a body, Lance steps up, vowing to protect her.

Can picking up the pieces bring two souls together?

WARNING:
**The language and sexual scenes in the book are similar to what you would see in an R rated movie, therefore the book is for 18+ readers.**

Winter Blog Review

Ah, once again I am starting a series at the end and not the beginning. From the opening pages I fell in love with this seaside town. Maryann’s descriptions put me on the beach, with the breeze filling my senses.

Lance as we first meet him is really a jerk. He wants his privacy but oversteps his bounds, in the process, embarrassing and scaring Jade away from the beach. The art he creates, although I can’t actually see it, I can picture in my mind. The pieces of sea glass suspended by intricate wires, moving in the air, sparking like a rainbow.

Jade in my opinion has the patience of a saint, and I loved her right away. Her strength and devotion to her teaching is inspiring. Her friends are loyal and supportive.

One of my favorite scenes is when Lance asks her why she gathers the sea glass.

Finally, gathering her wits, she rushed, “You can fuss and fume all you want, but the truth of the matter is, I like looking for sea glass, but other than giving some to my students for art projects I don’t need what I find.”

“Then why take it? What fascination could you possibly have with sea glass?” he bit back.

Her chest quivering, she stood her ground, staring at the infuriating— and furious— man. Dropping her eyes to the bag of colorful fragments, she wondered how to put into words what was in her heart without him trampling on her feelings. Slowly, she confessed, “Everyone looks at the ocean, but waves come and go. It’s as though nothing changes, if the only thing we do is just stare out at the water. But the beach does change… it’s full of what the ocean decides to leave for us to discover. Like little gifts. Sea glass is…” swallowing, she lifted her gaze back to him, “it’s proof that things can change… for the better. Life can break us into pieces, but we can change, become more beautiful than we were before.”

Lance sucked in a quick breath through his nose, her words striking a chord deep within. Letting his breath out slowly, he wondered how she managed to so eloquently state exactly what he had always thought… both about the waves and the sea glass.

Knowing her words sounded ridiculous, Jade shrugged, adding, “I know you make beautiful things with your glass. I’ve seen them at Jillian’s galleria. I’ve admired them for a while but never knew who made them.”

Feeling foolish in the face of her poetic words about the very thing he cared about, Lance just nodded. “Yeah… okay… thanks. But… uh… you don’t have to get any more sea glass for me. I’m good. I find what I need.”
Maryann Jordan. Picking Up the Pieces: Baytown Boys Series (Kindle Locations 630-644).

I truly loved the way this relationship develops, the slow chiseling Jade does to the walls around him.

But not all is so peaceful in this small seaside town, as murder and mayhem ensues.

Filled with suspense, love, and friends this is a book you won’t be able to put down.

I am going back to the beginning of this series to meet the others in this book in more detail.

MOVING TO LOVE
Rolling Thunder
By
PJ Fiala
Iraq veteran Jeremiah “Dog” Sheppard is looking forward to the annual Veterans Ride, but this year he might be rewarded with more than the usual satisfaction of doing a good deed when he asks the stunning single mother of one of his employees to help with the charity event.
review-fall-sm

Jocelyn “Joci” James is  a free lance Marketing and web/graphics designer. With that in mind her son Gunner invites her to the Veteran’s Ride planning session at Rolling Thunder Motorcycles. He knew his Mom could come up with some great stuff to not only make the Ride more successful the next time but also for the shop itself.

Jerimiah “Dog” Sheppard an Iraq Veteran, owner of Rolling Thunder Motorcycles and Gunner’s Boss, sponsors the Veteran’s Ride every year. The proceeds go to aid local veterans. When he first meets Joci, he knows immediately she was something special and makes a point of getting to know her as they make changes to both his shop and the Ride.

Joci is immediately taken with Dog, he is tall, muscular and incredibly handsome and she almost forgot what she was there for as her son introduced them. As they sat down to get to the business at hand, the last of Dog’s employees LuAnn makes her appearance, flaunting her assets. To say she was not pleased at Joci’s presence would be an understatement at best.

Joci almost immediately proposes a logo for the shop. A necessity to boost recognition for business. Dog loves it and so does most everyone else. LuAnn thinks it’s stupid and doesn’t think he needs it. After the meeting Joci follows him to his office to get one of his cards and when he asked declined the offer of dinner.

A pissed off LuAnn confronts her as she is leaving. Making the claim that Dog is hers and she’s the only one who knows what he needs.  That he asked her out if he is indeed involved with LuAnn doesn’t set well with her at all.

This is only the beginning of the trouble LuAnn brews trying to keep Joci and Dog apart.

While neither of the main characters has been married, they both have adult children. Joci’s son Gunner works at the shop as do Dog’s twin son’s Ryder and JT. As they all work together to bring about a successful ride, a relationship begins between Joci and Dog, even though they haven’t gone on an actual date.

It’s right before the run that things heat up for them and when I say heat up I mean they start sizzling and really don’t stop.

Of course no relationship is without pitfall and this one has some of the worst. We have exes, friends of LuAnn and LuAnn herself all making this extremely trying.

I only had an issue with unrealistic recovery timelines for some medical things that come up. Other than that I loved the dynamic between all the major characters. I look forward to reading the next in this series.

Maryann Jordan
Gabe Malloy, former Green Beret, now special investigator stumbled across a beautiful woman in an alley. The chance meeting quickly grew into a mission as Jennifer Lambert was threatened. Letting him into her complicated life, she took a chance on him.
review-fall-sm

Gabe gets the surprise of his life while on a break from his bodyguard duties to actress Alicia Morgenstern. What he thought was a dumpster diving child was instead a beautiful young woman.

Jennifer is looking for a box to put the leftover unused bread and food from the kitchen of the hotel in. The manager donates to her center for the elderly. She never expected to meet a blond haired giant who suddenly has a movie star hanging all over him.

Star-struck and not by Alicia, Gabe makes it his personal mission to find the lovely young woman he startled in the alley. What he finds pleases him and he knows he has finally met the woman he is meant to be with, but he has to convince her of it.

Jennifer is a social worker whose focus is on the elderly. She lives with her little brother at the center she obtained the grants for. Grants that included a 5 year lease. She wasn’t looking for love but she found it anyway.

I love these two together and unbeknownst to either of them the Center has caught the eye of a real estate mogul who doesn’t like to fail and the excitement begins. Lots of sizzling hot sex, family fun and older veterans make this a wonderful read.

ROCCO AND MANDY
A Red Team Wedding Novella
By
Elaine Levine
The past is more real than the present in covert operative Rocco Silas’ broken mind. His girlfriend’s pregnancy should be a joyful event, but it’s more like a nightmare…one he believes can only end one way.
review-fall-sm

Rocco is a broken man, suffering with extreme PTSD with suicidal thoughts even as he tries to put on a normal face to the rest of the world. The things that led him to this dark place in his mind were brought on by being deep undercover in a war torn land.

Mandy his pregnant girlfriend and his band of brothers see through his façade and try to get him the help he needs. When Mandy makes the decision to leave him it breaks her heart and Rocco hits bottom.

As with many healing processes the bottom is a turning point that can go either way. In this case fortunately things go the right way both for Rocco and the abused horse Kitano. While a happily ever after rarely happens as quickly as it does in this story, the journey and the revelations to get there run true.

It was hard reading this story in the beginning. It is an extremely emotional read and one with many tears for the reader. I haven’t yet read the rest of this series and Elaine Levine is a new author to me. So I now have the books on my TBR pile to get to know each of the characters I just met more in depth and prepare for the books I know have to be coming.

ENFORCER
Enforcer Series
By
Ryleigh Rhodes
Small town Texan Claire enlisted in the Marine Corps, survived an IED in Iraq, went through rigorous physical therapy, and made it through med school. Now, after the loss of her beloved husband, she’s struggling to rebuild her life and raise their twins. Her friends rally around, but it’s up to Claire to pick up the pieces, open herself up to love, and truly live once again.
review-fall-sm

 Holy Hell! It’s bad enough being pregnant with twins, with your husband deployed and you roped into a celebrity charity golf thing in ungodly heat. But for the Class A dressed military to show up there with the news your husband was KIA, unconscionable.

Fortunately Claire’s husband’s friends Q and Pohl were there caddying. As well as Kristen one of the Football celebs wives, who is also pregnant. She calls her husband Jack who had Q caddying for him and the two of them get the situation under control.

Claire’s life remains hectic as she manages her twins and her residency and finally has her MD as an alternative oncologist. Jack and Kristen have become family to her and as such Jack’s cousin Clay takes more than a passing interest in her.

When her townhome burns to the ground, she moves in with Jack and Kristen. Only to find herself spending more and more time with Clay.

I loved the way this romance developed slowly over time. As well as some of the back stories that come out for both of them. Sizzling hot when they do get together although he does get a bit pushy about her moving in. Twins, dogs and friends antics made this a fun read. This is another series I will be reading from beginning to end.

Falcon Securities and ex-Ranger, Agent Brody Hawke sees the world from a tilted angle. His best friend, A.J., who saved Brody’s life is captured and diplomats aren’t working on his rescue. CIA agent Kate Stone’s life is torn apart when a Falcon agent, Brody Hawke, kidnaps her.
review-fall-sm

This book jumps right in with Brody kidnapping Kate. His plan, exchange Kate for his friend and partner AJ then get her out too. Unfortunately fate has other ideas, and Kate and AJ are both imprisoned and an injured Brody is left trying to find a way out for them.

I don’t know who I feel sorry for more AJ, Kate or Brody. Every time someone gets free, someone else manages to get them again. Always with Brody on the outside.

As this story unfolds, there is more than meets the eye with this cartel leader and his minions. There are more powerful and far more dangerous things at risk.

Yet in the middle of all this Brody and Kate manage to fall in love, and have a common goal take them all down and get home.

A fast paced, action packed story that will have you on the edge of your seat sometimes squirming.

And Bonus Story
WHEN YOU RETURN TO ME
Broslin Creek
By
Dana Marton
Maggie O’Connor thought she lost everything when she lost her true love, Cameron Gardner, four years
review-fall-sm

Maggie lives next door to her fiancé and true love’s grandfather. He likes to shoot turkeys from his bathroom window and sometimes scares the living daylights out of her. He can’t see very well and the one thing they have in common is the loss of Cameron four years ago.

As she defrosts and cooks a large rooster to convince the man he has killed his own dinner, she fields a call from a friend Zak, he wants her to go out with him.

Maggie doesn’t believe that what they buried was her Cam. She still hears his voice on the wind and in her heart and cannot give up hope.

Short and somewhat predictable, this is a light-hearted read. I think I might have enjoyed it more had I read the rest of this series.

ACCIDENTAL SEAL
Seal Brotherhood
By
Sharon Hamilton
Wrong open house, naked Navy SEAL on the bed, missing Team 3 buddy, gangs, dirty cops, and terrorists. Oh yes, and a love story. S.O Kyle Lansdowne gets lucky, but the path is a very dangerous one.
review-fall-sm

This certainly is a new twist on how not to make a first impression. Although it works out with a lunch date. An almost involvement with a sexy SEAL that turns dangerous before you can blink your eyes.

Dangerous for Kyle because he can’t stop thinking about her and that’s a distraction he can’t afford as he tries to find his SEAL team buddy Armando.

Dangerous for Christy because she not only gets her heartbroken by him but he keeps coming back for more. In doing so he also involves her in his danger as she falls deeper in love with him.

I love this SEAL team, Kyle, Cooper, Fredo, Armando and Chief Petty Officer Commander Timmons. Gunny, owner of the gym they frequent when off duty. He is a Retired Gunnery Sgt. feisty even though he is very ill, he helps the team in so many ways.

I just couldn’t stop reading every turn of the page brought something new and surprising. For the record I’ve owned this book for a while it’s sitting on my TBR pile. It took buying this collection for me to read it. Now I have to read the rest of the series most of which is also in my library. Obviously I’ve waited long enough.

Brutally scarred in Afghanistan, Zeke Foster has no expectation that he’ll ever find a woman capable of accepting him the way he is. When the damaged soldier with the kind eyes brings some security to Ember Norton’s crazy life, she’s afraid to trust her luck, but his wounded soul calls to her.
review-fall-sm

I absolutely love this book! JM’s characters are portrayed in such a way that in no way do you feel sorry for them you actually cheer them on.

Zeke has had a hard road, with his face brutally scarred, it has also scarred his confidence. He feels unworthy of anything but disgust for his looks.

Ember sees beyond all the scars and sees the man beneath it all. On a personal level her problems are beyond the physical and she finds herself dealing with a lot of changes. Including falling hard for Zeke.

Don’t miss this great story and the rest of the series. Each book gets better and better.

By
Elle James
A Navy SEAL and a beautiful aide doctor navigate hostile territory in their attempt to rescue a kidnapped doctor in the Horn of Africa.
review-fall-sm

This book starts right off with an op. Tasked to take out Emir Fuad Hassan Umar who is annihilating villages in the Horn of Africa. An op that quickly goes FUBAR.

On extraction one copter goes down but before it does, Declan “Irish” O’Shea slides out and falls twenty feet to the ground.

Dr. Claire Boyette along with her Somali counterpart Dr. Jamo had taken as many women and children as they could and hidden them when Umar had headed to their village. Now with the activity in the village they moved away from their tents to hide from the rebels. One they were hidden Claire had slipped away to get closer to the village incase the ones they had left behind need care because of the shooting.

One helicopter flew over her head and then a second one headed toward her and was hit and something or someone fell to the ground within twenty feet of her.

From here out story becomes one of survival. Claire prevents Irish from being detected while the rebels searched the area, then hides him in her tent.

When she and Dr. Jamo are taken to the village proper, Irish finds himself in the position of rescuing the lovely doctor.

A journey that leads to the beginnings of love, a revelation of bio-warfare and so much more. I couldn’t stop reading this one and I have to read the rest of this series soon.

PROTECTING CAROLINE
SEAL of Protection
By
Susan Stoker
Caroline foils a terrorist hijacking of an airliner, with the help of three members of a SEAL team, but after she gets home she finds herself still in the sights of the terrorists. She means everything to Wolf, but in order to save her, he first needs to find her.
review-fall-sm

I’ve read this book before and there is no question this is one of my absolute favorite SEAL books.

Matthew “Wolf” Steel, Christopher “Abe” Powers and Sam “Mozart” Reed were headed to Norfolk. They had two weeks before they were scheduled to leave from there on their next mission. Their intention, to spend most of that time with their friend “Tex” a medically retired SEAL. Tex has some truly awesome computer skills and frequently aided their missions.

Caroline is a chemist heading to her new job in Norfolk when she meets Matthew. She switched seats with him so he could be more comfortable during the four hour  flight from San Diego. A flight that was destined to be a disaster. That is until Caroline smells something off with the ice in the drink she was served. The three SEALs on board with a little help from Caroline, prevent the terrorists from succeeding. It’s then that Caroline earns the nickname “Ice”.

This was just the beginning, Caroline now has a price on her head. The terrorists want to know how she knew something was in the ice.  She’s not talking not to anyone.

We get a little bit of everything in this book a stalking, break-in, witness protection, kidnapping, torture and a love story you will not be able to put down.

SEA OF DREAMS
The American Heroes
By
Kathryn Le Veque
When Blakesley Thorne wanted to start a new life in San Diego, CA, she had no idea that Fate would bring her face to face with Cmdr. Beck Seavington, USN. When Beck must save Blakesley in a final showdown, the Wild West reigns and ghosts from the history of old San Diego come full circle.
review-fall-sm

Blakesley and Beck meet in an unusual way. Her daughter Cadee gets swept into the current of the ocean near their hotel. Even as she dives in to get her the SEALs that were training nearby quickly make their way to them. In a flash mother and daughter were in the inflatable and back on the beach.

Cadee, Crosby and Charlotte all wrap the SEAL Commander around their pinkies and he is charmed. He misses his own daughter so as his relationship with Blakeley grows so does his love of her daughters.

This relationship is fraught with deployments, old curses, exes, murder,  and so  much more. Every page adds to the mystery and the drama.

I got angry, laughed and cried, another one you won’t be able to put down. As well as a series I need to add to my TBR pile.

BACK FROM HELL
Marine For You
By
Marissa Dobson
Wounded Lance Corporal Kyle Phillips had gotten to the point that he wished he’d died on that battlefield instead of living the life of half a man…until a woman with whiskey brown eyes and a feisty side strolled into his room looking to save him.
review-fall-sm

What Kyle wants as he is nearing his discharge from the hospital is a bottle of whiskey. What he gets is a stubborn whiskey-brown eyed beauty.

Staci is getting her master’s degree in Physical Therapy, but while she earns it she visits the military hospital near her home. She goes to just talk to the men there, not in any medical capacity but just to listen to what they have to say.

Kyle and Staci’s first meeting didn’t go so well, he’s still very angry and guilt ridden over the loss of his friend as well as the feeling of being half a man. Having lost one arm and one leg to an IED plus the burns on his chest and neck.

Once discharged Kyle buys that whiskey and a gun. when he contemplated using both Staci’s card falls on top of them. He calls but doesn’t leave a message and doesn’t pick up when she calls back. This prompts a visit from her that will change both their lives.

A story of friendship to love, that will at times bring tears to your eyes. With family issues for Staci to the reuniting with old buddies and families for Kyle. A story of hope.

Maryann Jordan
Award Winning and International Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo Best Selling Author

I have always been an avid reader. I joke that I “cut my romance teeth” on the old historical romance books. I’ve written as a hobby for over 30 years. 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.

My books are filled with sweet romance and hot sex; mystery, suspense, real life characters and situations. My heroes are alphas, take charge men who love the strong, independent women they fall in love with.

I worked as a counselor in a high school and have been involved in education for the past 30 years. I recently retired and now can spend more time devoted to my writing.

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!

I love to hear from readers.
