Here is a short snippet from my upcoming contribution to the #Crossroads boxset, Restricted Maneuvers.

Chapter 1

Restricted Maneuvers: a “vessel” unable to keep out of the way because of the “nature of her work.”

“Contact rear! Contact rear!” Macen “Mac” Williams whirled at Tyson “Cade” Kincade’s cry, finger releasing bullets in short controlled bursts. The tangoes fell and they eventually rotated back to continue forward. Submerged deep in the Peruvian jungle they were five klicks from their destination. Unfortunately, someone had alerted the General they were coming and the land teamed with his men. “This shit’s tighter than a nun’s habit,” Grey Sorenson said. “What, you been out violating nuns?” He tossed as they moved on. “If I had, it wouldn’t be tight.” Gunfire split the thick air off to the left. Mac checked his magazine before slamming it home in the MP5. “Bug know about that?” The man grinned at him, his camouflage bandana not stopping the sweat moving down his face. “Hell no, I’m fearless, not stupid. I was Navy not a Marine. And don’t tell her I said that, or I’ll deny it.” Mac chuckled. Bug—better known as Sarah Sorenson—was Grey’s wife. He loved the woman, personally. She never failed to make him smile with her sense of humor. Of course her steadfast dedication to her career as a Marine and being Grey’s wife, didn’t hurt. They fell silent as they progressed closer to the destination. More tangoes appeared and seconds later, more fell. Sweaty, they pulled up before breeching the compound. “One on each direction.” “Roger that.” Mac took the south approach. “Sure are a lot of cars here,” he commented moving in closer. “Fight night.” Cade’s words were succinct. Underground fight clubs were extremely common. A bit rarer for them to be held at a person’s property, but not unheard of. He neutralized the men he came across with accurate shots from his silenced 9mm. “I’m not seeing many.” Covering their escape route was Grey so Mac met with Cade and the other two who were inside the building with them, Mason “Lefty” Lawsen and Silas “Metro Man’ Cifeman. The four of them halted in the foyer. Cade sent Lefty and Metro Man up and gestured for Mac to follow. They were heading down. Clearing each room with methodical precision, the due halted outside a heavy door. “SitRep?” “All quiet on the western front, Cade. Not even the hired help is hanging here today.” Metro Man’s comment had Cade sharing a look with Mac. “We’re going down, follow.” Cade checked the door and found the switch. A finger countdown and he swept in, going low while Cade went high. No one in sight but muffled chanting was easy to decipher. “Looks like we’re going to a fight.” He batted his eyes. “Can I be your date?” Cade gave a wry grin. “Sure, but I don’t put out on the first date.” “I’ll try to keep that in mind, but I do in case you wanted to know.” Cade shook his head and didn’t respond. Their speed moderate, they made good time to the end where two men in tuxes stood.

Blog Hop for the Crossroads  Boxset

February 12th, 2019

Welcome!! Thank you so much for stopping by on this part of the blog hop. There will be some giveaways and tidbits about some of the stories in this boxset.

A bit about my story in the set.

Restricted Maneuvers is book 5 in my Tungsten Protective series. The story is a romantic suspense and here is the blurb:

On the road, fighting for their lives a fling turns friends to lovers, but will it keep when the danger passes?

Macsen “Mac” Williams falls for Autumn the first time he lays eyes on her. He knows she is the one for him. She’s fire and ice all rolled into one. Autumn “Cyclone” Schovanec is a Marine who’s occasionally called upon to work with Tungsten Protective Services, off the books, of course. She has great respect for the men who started the company and enjoys working with them. Having no intention of settling down, there is one who makes her question that ideal each time she is around him. Trouble follows them sending them both on the run. While used to working in close capacity to one another, this time it’s different. More is at stake.

Autumn “Cyclone” Schovanec is considered the black sheep of her family because she joined the US Marine Corps instead of doing something that earned a ton of money like the rest of her family. All she wanted was a vacation, a well deserved one, and after a brief stop to check on someone for one of her two family members she actually likes, she finds herself not only face to face with the one man who can undo every inch of her training but also on the run, to try and save their lives and those of the others depending on them.

Macsen “Mac” Williams, is a solider. He’s always been one and doesn’t think he can ever do anything else. For this woman, he is willing to try. He’s know she was his one since the first day he met her. Finding her neck deep in trouble isn’t all that surprising just like him jumping all in to help regardless of the situation. He’ll do anything to keep her safe, anything.

Wednesday Whisper ~ Breaking All the Rules

January 2nd, 2019

Alyse began to shake her head. “I don’t think that’s fair, not when the other pilots aren’t here.”

“Honey, that’s because Wild has no interest in any of the other pilots. He’s picked you. You’re family now.”

“Wh…what?”

Sarah laughed gently and lowered her hand from her cheek to take Alyse’s hand. “I knew one of my son’s was after you. The fire in your eyes and the way he’s trying really hard not to say anything as he stands over there, tells me it’s Wild. I’m glad to see he’s finally settled down. More grandkids is always a bonus.”

When Alyse’s gaze widened he stepped forward. “Mom.”

She shrugged without repentance. “Just calling it like I see it. Glad to see you made it, Wild.”

He kissed his mom and she walked out of the room whistling under her breath. Then he focused on Alyse. She looked positively stricken.

Wild reached out to touch her. “Are you okay?”

“No.” She stepped away from him. “I just had your mother…I can’t, nope, just can’t. I need to leave.”

“I just got here, sweetheart, where are you going?”

“Not in the mood, Wild.”

He held up a hand. “Okay, I’m sorry. My mom can be a bit straightforward in her speech. Don’t let it get to you.”

“Don’t let it get to me? She basically told me she’s waiting for me to pop out some grandkids for her.” She worked her jaw. “I work for this company, do you have any idea how it feels to have the mother of my boss tell me that?”

So he’d not thought about it that way. “Look, I’m sorry about that.”

“Right. Sure you are. You’re so used to having things your way, I’m sure you were really concerned how telling your family we slept together was something you gave a damn about.” She slashed a hand through the air. “I mean, why stop with the night in Belize. Did you also tell them about the night I ran into you here before my first flight with D.A.R.K. and all the sex we had then, or was that for your next family dinner?”

Lord, her fire, it had him so ready to do things to her that had no place for his family to even be in earshot. He sensed them behind him, listening avidly.

“I didn’t no,” he said, working hard not to smile. “I do believe, however, you just informed them of that.”

Color leeched from her skin and she looked around him, eyes growing wide again. “Shit,” she muttered. “I’m leaving.” Lifting her chin, she took a deep breath. “Thanks for having me.” She skittered to the door like a fawn running from something that scared it.

Teaser Tuesday ~ Breaking All the Rules

January 1st, 2019

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Welcome to 2019! Let’s make it a great one!

 

“Get out of my face, Adam.” Wild hadn’t wanted to punch his brother this bad in a long time. But he was being an ass. A condescending ass.

“Get over yourself, bastard. How is it you couldn’t make it to your only nephew’s first birthday party?”

Wild ground his jaw. “It’s been a really long night, Adam.” He shoved Rhodi’s hand away from his chest. “Back off Air Force.”

“Alyse made it.” Adam’s comment drew his attention from his brother who’d served in the Air Force and put it back on the Army soldier.

Wild stepped toe to toe his brother, Adam. He stood about two inches taller but Wild knew he outweighed Adam by a bit. “Watch your tone, Adam, before you push me too far.”

“Can you two just get along for the time? It’s my son’s birthday party. I’m not as pissed about his tardiness, Adam. Let it go. He’s here now.” Rhodi sounded put out. “This is getting old between the two of you.”

Monday Book Memories ~ Breaking All the Rules

December 31st, 2018

This one came about because I love doing stories about family. Here we have four brothers who have each gone into different branches of the service and after they are out, join together to form a protection company.

 

One night of passion can lead to anything. For a woman and her boss, can it—will it—lead to happily ever after?

A member of D.A.R.K. Cover, Inc., Kristopher “Wild” Wilder is taking a few days of R&R in Belize after his last mission. There he meets a woman who sets his blood on fire and the night they share is explosive to say the least. Little does he know, she’s the woman his brothers hired to be their company’s newest pilot. After the passion in Belize, he looks forward to continuing the connection. Problem: she isn’t on board with that idea.

Alyse Lamar is a damn good pilot. She’s taken this new job for a few reasons but when she realizes she’s slept with one of her new bosses, she isn’t sure it’s the best place for her to remain. She can’t seem to keep her hands off him, nor him her. Her strict rule about never mixing business with pleasure is taking one heck of a beating.

Wild is many things, a quitter isn’t one of them. He wants this feisty woman and knows she wants him just as much. He vows to find a way past her walls and make her understand that what began as one night in Belize is worth breaking all the rules and canlead to forever.
