Enemy Mine - Base Branch Novel 1

When friends become enemies and enemies become lovers.

Born in the blood of Sierra Leone's Civil War, enslaved, then sold to the US as an orphan, Base Branch operative Sloan Harris is emotionally dead and driven by vengeance. With no soul to give, her body becomes the bargaining chip to infiltrate a warlord's inner circle. The man called The Devil killed her family and helped destroy a region.

As son of the warlord, Baine Kendrick will happily use Sloan's body if it expedites his father's demise. Yet, he is wholly unprepared for the possessive and protective emotions she provokes. Maybe it’s the flashes of memory … two forgotten children drawing in the dirt beneath the boabab tree… But he fears there is more at stake than his life.

In the Devil's den with Baine by her side, Sloan braves certain death and discovers a spirit for living.

Enemy Mine gets 5 Steamy and Suspenseful stars*****

This book turned out to be such a nice surprise. A definite page turner... and, oh so sexy! Baine and Sloan were steaming up the pages! Their relationship was surprisingly emotional and touching... I loved it... :)
This is one of those enemies to lovers stories... two people who are on opposite sides of the fence. She's an assassin for the CIA and he is the son of the enemy... one of her targets.
Sloan volunteers to play the role of a high paid escort in order to get closer to the man they refer to as The Devil. The same man who was responsible for her traumatic childhood. When she arrives at the compound she is reunited with his son Baine. They were once friends and playmates for the short time she was held captive at the compound as a small girl. She had hoped he would not remember her now that so much time had passed because she was sure he was no longer the friendly little boy she once knew. But, there was simply no stopping the bonds of friendship they once shared from bubbling back up to the surface. And, Sloan finds herself in the difficult position of falling for the enemy.
Baine is a character that you can't help but feel empathy for... his father was determined to raise a son that would follow in his deadly footsteps. He had to play his game in order to find a way to beat him. He was a very conflicted man, always walking a thin line between becoming the monster his father wanted him to be and being the man he knew himself to be.
I love how these two found something worth fighting for other than revenge and I was really rooting for their HEA!
The end of the book did bring a few tears to my eyes... especially when Sloan finally decided to face the losses from her past and the memories of her parents. Very touching...
So, a great read and I already have the rest of the books in this series in my to read pile! This newbie author has gained a big fan... :)

Nice choice for those who like a little steamy romantic suspense!

Thanks so much to the author for the complimentary copy!

Also in this series...  and already in my to read pile!

Justice Mine - Base Branch Novel 2

For justice. For country. For love.

After witnessing her friend’s sexual assault, seven-year senior Magdalena Wells escapes an attack with a few bruises and a thousand questions. As a journalist in practice, if not in pay, Mags vows to utilize the skills she mastered in the Democratic Republic of Congo and answer every single one—just as soon as she gets the hell out of town.

Law Pierce’s aim is rest and relaxation after two years undercover in South Africa on an extended Base Branch mission, but restlessness puts him in trouble’s path. As a servant of justice, Law will do everything in his power to keep trouble safe. The fact that trouble’s petite stature and luscious curves stir his every primal instinct is a massive inconvenience he struggles to ignore.

Together Magdalena and Law uncover a web of corruption and dirty lies that could set their country’s top official ablaze—if the inferno doesn’t consume them first.

Stranger Mine - Base Branch Novel 3

One takes control. One finds balance in letting go.

Base Branch operative Ryan Noble is accustomed to taking orders—whether from his commander or his overbearing mother. His best friend urged him to take control of his life, but the only thing worse than an angry woman is a teary one. He has no desire to upset his mother’s fragile emotions. Losing his sister was hard enough; his mom couldn’t bear losing another child—even if it is just to the other side of D.C. It's a damn good thing she doesn't know what he does for a living.

On a routine mission to destroy a cargo-free human-trafficking facility and exterminate its operators, Ryan blows his extraction to rescue a woman he finds chained inside.

Piper Vega is caught between metal and a hard place. She needs information and it has taken far too long to cull it from her leads—also known as her captors. She finally has the facts she needs to complete her task, but it’ll take a miracle to set her free and see it achieved. Santo Padre knows she never expected her good favor to come in the form of a man.

Ryan takes the reins of life in his sturdy grip while Piper discovers balance in loosening hers. Through intense battles of will, both find the unexpected.

And Coming Soon...

A silver fox learns new tricks.

The Base Branch office in Washington D.C. is so heavily fortified it makes Fort Knox look like a 7-Eleven. After twenty years in covert ops, nothing fazes Commander Vail Tucker. When a lightning bolt of feminine fury crashes into the interrogation room, holds him at gunpoint, and takes over the task with his prisoner, he’s more than surprised. She escapes without a trace, but Vail is unable to remain dispassionate. He must know what is so important the beguiling woman would risk her life to find it.

Carmen Ruez is deadly and desperate—a combustible combination. Born into the remnants of the Arellano Felix Organization, drugs and violence kept her in a gilded cage—until a twist of fate showed her the roots of their riches, making her yearn for freedom. She works for it. Fights for it. But her brother crosses the line to keep her loyal to the treacherous family she is determined to leave behind.

Following instinct, Vail uncovers Carmen's motives and is galvanized by a protective instinct he hadn't known he possessed. Determination and desire force them to work together to defeat those loyal to Carlos Ruez and the AFO. But are those traits enough to make them fight for a future together?
