Ex-Marine Austin Flint knows all about trouble. He fought it in Afghanistan, and now he battles it at home as the head of Six Points Tactical & Security. In his line of work, he can’t afford to be distracted by anything…or anyone, and that includes Nina Petrov, his cyber security expert. She’s got a chip on her shoulder, a smart mouth. And a body that just doesn’t quit. She’s also his employee, which makes her off limits, no matter how badly he wants her. But when her life is threatened by the Russian mafia, he’ll do what it takes to protect her, even if that means breaking his own code of honor and claiming her as his own.
Trouble is, he doesn’t know about her past, and what he doesn’t know might get them both killed.

DEVOTED: SOUTHERN ALPHAS ~ BOOK THREE
Attorney Ethan Riggs is in love with a woman he can’t have, and it’s driving him out of his mind.
She’s his best friend’s secret crush and his adopted family’s adored baby sister, which locks her in the look-but-don’t-touch category. It was easy to deny his attraction while she was away at veterinary school. But now that she’s back, the temptation’s growing stronger, and a man can only resist for so long before he finally claims what he wants.
Doctor Louise Phillips doesn’t have time for a man. Between her work at the animal hospital and helping her sister on the family farm, she barely has time for sleep. But when a rare night out turns into an evening in the slammer, it’s Ethan she calls for help. He’s a great guy—and seriously hot—but he’s never shown any interest in her beyond friendship. But now that he’s agreed to help her beat the charges, working closely with him is giving her ideas. Sexy, sweaty ideas.
But Ethan has secrets buried deep in his past, and he hates the thought of Louise looking at him with pity—or worse, disappointment. Unfortunately, secrets have a nasty habit of coming out when they’re least expected. When Louise learns the truth, will she stand by her man or kick him to the curb?
FRACTURED: SOUTHERN ALPHAS ~ BOOK TWO
Carter Phillips has returned from multiple deployments, and he’s brought a few demons home with him. War has left him scarred, inside and out, and he’s counting on the peace and isolation of his family’s farm to keep his head screwed on straight. What he doesn’t bargain for is Amy Williams, the new horse trainer. She’s kinder than he deserves, tougher than he expects, with a hidden core of vulnerability that triggers his need to possess and protect her.
Amy has finally pieced her life back together, after being forced to give up everything and assume a new identity. Now she’s safe, no longer the target of accusations and death threats—but she’s also alone. The only danger to her secrets and her celibacy is Carter Phillips, smoking-hot former Marine—and her boss’s brother. With each passing day, she finds it harder to lie to him about who she is—and who she wants.
Neither of them wants to talk about the past, but the more time they spend together, the closer they become. When the truth comes out, will it set them free or tear them apart forever?

One hard-working woman…
One bet that’ll make sparks fly…

With her heart and the family business on the line, will she risk it all for love?
