Her life is filled with lies and he’s one of them.

When Jacin awoke stateside, he remembered nothing about his escape from the Colombian cartel or his torture. He was sure of only one thing, his love of Melina, his handler. When she disappears, neither bruises nor the CIA will keep him from rescuing her.

Rescuing Melina brings together the Alphas from Susan Stoker’s Delta Force Heroes and the sexy men of KaLyn Cooper’s Guardian Elite series into a romantic suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the last page.

This book is the perfect blend of Susan Stokers Delta Force Heroes and Kalyn Cooper’s Guardian Series.

We open with Jacin waking up in a stateside Military hospital, with Melina at his side.

If you read Kalyn’s Black Swan Series, you will remember Melina from Uncaged Love. Melina was Rafe’s handler and helped him and Harper get out of Columbia.

Now being a CIA agent undercover always has risks and Jacin has almost paid the ultimate price. Melina is at his bedside where the doctors are slowly bringing him out of a medically induced coma. Jacin believes that Rafe and her are an item and when she announces she has to return to Washington, they fight. He wanted to stay in the make believe where she was his wife, as all the doctors thought.

She meets Mary at the supermarket, a surprising encounter for us who read both series.
This scene made me cry, it is a favorite.

As the uniformed cashier slid the last item toward the new bag boy, she paused and looked directly into Melina’s eyes and lowered her voice. “Why did you do it? Pay for that other lady’s groceries?”

“I used to be her.” Melina was embarrassed when her voice cracked on the small sentence.

 “Don’t look like you’re her anymore.”

“No, but I’ve never forgotten what it’s like to be hungry.” Melina signed a small plastic screen and pushed her overflowing cart into the parking lot.

“Look, I was told to bring these bags to you.” The first bagger held out the groceries to the woman whose purple streak gleamed in the midday Texan sun.

“Who told you these were mine?”

The teen used that opportunity to shove the bags into the woman’s arms. “That lady.” He pointed toward Melina as he trotted back to the store.

When the woman approached her, arms extended as though to give back the three bags of groceries, she explained, “I believe these are your groceries, not mine.”

Melina shook her head. “No. I’m positive those are yours. The boy had yet to pack them up when you grabbed your bags and left. All I did was insist he catch you.”

Nearly in tears, the woman stood a little straighter as sad brown eyes met Melina’s darker ones. “Thank you. I appreciate this.” She held out her hand. “I’m Mary Weston.”

“Melina Torres.” Staying with that name seemed as good an idea as any.

As they shook hands, Mary explained, “I had to wait for my prescriptions to be filled at the pharmacy across the street so I thought I’d pick up a few things. They’re new medicines, so I don’t know how much my insurance company is going to cover. I wanted to be sure I had enough left for the co-pay.”

Melina wanted to hug her. The young woman was proud, yet willing to accept a gift.

It’s in this parking lot that things take a turn for the worst. Hold on tight, it just gets tenser, scarier and perfect!

Rafe and Harper, Alex and Kat, the Deltas, specifically Truck all come into play. Of course Jacin won’t be left behind either, injuries and all.

A page turner that will have you laughing and crying and holding your breath.

Winter Blog Blurb

When a billionaire and his wife are in jeopardy, life is doubly dangerous for their bodyguards.

Guarding a billionaire couple on a fix-it or forget-it vacation, at a highly-exclusive resort on a remote island was Ryleigh Davenport’s dream assignment. Except, she’d been partnered with her former lover, Blake Albright, the soldier she’d been forced to leave behind without a word. When the threats against the CEO and his wife turn to murder attempts, will Riley and Blake find comfort in each other once again?

Winter Blog Review

Guardian Security has finally found a woman with the qualifications to be a part of their team. Ryleigh spent a lot of time in the sandbox embedded as an informant. Her partner turned out to be a traitor and she has now left the military behind.

When Blake first sees Ryleigh he thinks she is a potential client, but when he realizes who she is, well let’s say he’s not sure if he’s angry or happy. They had a relationship and she disappeared without a word.

Ryleigh and Blake are given an assignment before she can unpack. A valid threat has been made against Billionaire CEO Duke Wainwright’s wife and they need additional security for their vacation at an exclusive resort.

This is a favorite scene as the assignment is given and explained.

“No.” Wyatt explained, “Mr. Wainwright has received what we have determined to be credible threats to his life. The most recent one arrived an hour ago and threatened to kill his wife. He is not expecting trouble on the exclusive island, but he’d rather be safe than sorry. That’s why you two are going.”

“Just the two of us?” Blake asked, his jaw dropping slightly.

“Yes.” Alex’s eyes narrowed. “Do you have a problem with that?”

“Sir,” Blake protested. “If the Wainwrights are truly in danger, I’d rather have my standard contingent of six of my best men to protect him and his wife.”

Wyatt shook his head. “Mrs. Wainwright is vehemently against any protection services. She believes the exclusivity of the resort, which owns the whole damn island, and their promised increased security, is enough.”

Alex’s gaze moved from Blake to Ryleigh. “But Duke isn’t satisfied. He finally got Ella to agree on one man and one woman.” When he smiled at her, she knew exactly what Katlin saw in her Latin lover. Damn, he was handsome. “I knew hiring you was a good decision.”

Ryleigh wasn’t sure he really had a choice given that one of her best friends owned part of the company. Even so, she would do everything in her power to prove Alex right. He’d jumped far out on a limb for her. “Thank you, sir. I won’t let you down.”

“Okay, so I’ll be protecting Mr. Wainwright, and Ryleigh will handle Mrs. Wainwright’s protection?” Blake asked. “Will they be staying in separate villas or hotel rooms?”

Wyatt shuffled his feet and the corners of Alex’s mouth kicked up. “I’m only telling you this because I believe it’s necessary for you to know in order to effectively guard the Wainwright’s.” Alex took a deep breath and ran his hand over his angled face. “I’ve known Duke and Ella for several years. The man is a fucking genius and has done wonders with the family company. But I can tell you from experience, growth like that comes at a personal cost.”

Ryleigh could see the truth in Alex’s eyes before he continued. “This trip was Ella’s idea, and she had planned it for months. I think, and this is just my personal opinion, that she hopes to pull Duke away from his all-consuming work and back into their relationship.” Alex grinned. “Sometimes we men need a kick in the ass to see what’s right in front of us.”

Under his breath, Wyatt quietly added, “Or bullets flying at us.”

Alex chuckled. “Yeah. Some of us are denser than others.”

Ryleigh would have to ask Katlin about that inside joke. Pulling the conversation back to the situation at hand, she asked, “So what’s our cover story?”

“You are traveling with them as their friends,” Alex explained. “But don’t ever forget, you’re there to protect them.”

Once again, Blake clarified, “So I’m going as Mr. Wainwright’s buddy, and Ryleigh is going as Mrs. Wainwright’s BFF?”

“No.” Wyatt dragged out the word. “You two are going as Mr. and Mrs. Seasnan.”

“Seasnan?” Ryleigh and Blake said in unison.

“Who the hell came up with that name?” Blake spit out.

“Blame Katlin for that one.” Alex shrugged. “It’s Gaelic for bodyguard.”

Ryleigh burst out laughing. “That sounds like Katlin. During training she used to come up with the most bizarre names for people and places, almost all of them based in Gaelic.” She looked at Alex. “You’ve heard from her lately?”

A warm smile crossed his usually hard face. “Yes. A few hours ago. She’s on her way home.” He looked at his watch. “Sorry to cut this meeting short, Wyatt, but I need to catch a plane to D.C. Your center looks wonderful, as always.”

Alex extended his hand to Ryleigh. “Welcome aboard Guardian Security.”
KaLyn Cooper. Double Jeopardy (Kindle Locations 213-242). Kindle Edition.

Within minutes of their arrival an attempt on Duke’s life is made. Fortunately the head of security for the Island isn’t so arrogant as to protest further assistance. Even with two additional bodyguards the attempts keep coming. One of which almost takes out Ryleigh.

It’s then that she realizes she doesn’t want to stay away from Blake and the temperature goes up.

Action packed, suspenseful and definitely hotter than the climate.
