A rising star with everything to lose.

As Hollywood’s newest darling, Becca Sandoza is vigilant about guarding the image and reputation she’s so carefully created. Her career has allowed her to escape her past, but her newfound fame turns out to be a sharp double-edged sword. The nightmare she’s been trying to escape for twenty years has resurfaced. The man responsible knows all her secrets, and his silence comes at a heavy price. She’ll do whatever it takes to keep the past buried and protect the person she cares about most. But when it seems like she’s trapped with no way out, Becca finally turns to the one man she can trust—the one man capable of making her body burn and her heart ache with a yearning she’s never felt before.

The only man who can protect her.

Chase Davenport took everything he learned as a Marine Corps combat veteran and is now a sought-after stuntman. Hollywood is every bit as competitive and unpredictable as he expected, but the biggest surprise so far is Becca Sandoza. She’s got a reputation as an ice queen with the media, but it’s clear to him that’s only a mask she puts on to protect herself. Behind the scenes she’s down to earth, kind, and just being around her brings out all his protective instincts. So when she comes to him for help with a dangerous situation, he steps up. She might be totally out of his league, but the more time they spend together, it quickly becomes clear there’s more between them than scorching chemistry. And when the threat suddenly escalates with no warning, Chase will do anything to save her—no matter the cost.

Excerpt

“Cut. Great job, guys,” the director called out.

Applause and enthusiastic whistles erupted behind her. Becca exhaled in a shaky rush and let her chin drop to her chest, her shoulders still jerking with residual sobs, exhaustion weighing down her limbs.

She tensed when hushed footfalls came up behind her. A moment later, Chase’s scent reached her. “Becca?”

She flinched when he set a hand on her shoulder, hurriedly wiping at her face.

“Hey.” He turned her toward him and pulled her to his broad, hard chest.

She shuddered and resisted initially, but when he made a quiet sound and gathered her closer, she stopped fighting, dropped her cheek to his chest and leaned into him.

“You’re okay,” he whispered, holding her tight.

Not even close. But oh, God, he felt so good, and his tender concern was a balm on the raw, searing wound in her soul. Safe. She felt so safe in his embrace, but it was just an illusion.

His heavy arms shifted, and he ran a big palm up and down her back. She sniffled and kept her eyes closed, wishing this would all be over.

Chase twisted slightly away from her and called out. “Ian? We good? Or do we need to go again?”

Oh, God, she couldn’t do that again. There was nothing left but the heavy numbness creeping through her.

“We’re good. That was perfect.”

She slumped against Chase in relief and let out a shuddering sigh. “You were awesome,” he murmured, the hint of a smile in his voice. “How’s your hand?”

“Little sore,” she managed in a tight whisper, then lifted her head to look up at him. Her eyes felt swollen, her throat raw. But the ache in the center of her chest hurt the worst. “Did I hurt you?”

“With the prop rod? Nah. But you packed one hell of a punch a few takes back.”

Before she could apologize, he released her and stepped away. She bit back the automatic protest that burst onto her tongue, stopped herself from reaching for him.

He wasn’t her safety net. It wasn’t his job to heal her and put the jagged pieces of her soul back together.

“That’s a wrap, everybody,” Ian announced.

More cheers and whistles, but Becca didn’t feel like celebrating. There was only relief, and a deep, aching sadness she didn’t know what to do with.

I gotta get out of here. “Excuse me,” she mumbled to Chase, then turned and shoved the release bar on the door.

Brilliant sunlight blinded her for a second. She put a hand up to shield her swollen, sensitive eyes, squinting as she hurried past all the trailers toward the parking lot where she’d left her car, intent on escape. From this place and everyone in it.

She’s looking to reinvent herself.

After the worst two years of her life, Aspen Savich has just moved across the country to the Outer Banks, looking to start over and leave her painful past behind. But it follows her anyway, bringing consequences she never could have imagined. Someone is watching her. Targeting her—and they don’t care who gets in the way. She has no one to turn to except the sexy local mechanic who has found a way past all her defenses, never dreaming the kind of danger they’re up against.

He’s about to have his world turned upside down.

Tragedy made Coast Guard vet Bowie Davenport withdraw from the world around him. He’s lived in Kill Devil Hills his whole life, focusing on work and family. Being alone is something he made peace with long ago—until the sexiest woman he’s ever seen pulls up to his garage in a little red Woody asking for help. There’s no way he can say no, even with his unwanted attraction to her. He tries to fight it, but soon he’s fallen completely under her spell. And when the unthinkable happens, he won’t hesitate to stand between her and the deranged enemy bent on taking her life.


Submerged (Kill Devil Hills #2)

Keep your friends close.

Harper Sorenson’s husband died during a security contracting job in Syria more than a year ago. The official report said he was killed in an enemy ambush, but she doesn’t buy it. And until she knows the truth, she can’t move on. When someone tries to silence her, she knows she’s on the right track. Unfortunately, now she has no choice but to rely on the man she blames for everything—her dead husband’s best friend.

And your enemies closer.

Jared Blackmore was there the day Pete died. Gravely wounded himself in the ambush, he still can’t remember everything that happened. His own search for answers results in resistance from every angle, and he begins to fear the worst—that they’re dealing with a cover up. With Harper now in danger, he drops everything to protect her. He might have promised Pete that he would take care of her, but it’s far more personal than that, and he’s worried he won’t be able to hide his attraction any longer. With the bodies piling up and danger closing in, they don’t know who to trust. He must uncover the truth before it’s too late—before they both wind up dead—and before she figures out exactly how much she means to him.
