Don’t forget to tell your friends to stop by so they can appreciate some greatness too!

UnCover Mondays on The Ranch!!! This feature is only to highlight authors–not to sell books (though if you see one you want to buy I’m sure the authors won’t mind 😆 ). Enjoy this weeks’ covers to ogle and explore.

  • Second generation Former Navy SEAL
  • DIRE’s top agent

  • Teleportation
  • Invisibility

Raised in the art of warfare, Former Navy SEAL, Tristan Jacobs, has always been a force to reckon with.  Now that D.I.R.E. has successfully implemented his scientific enhancements, he’s a walking weapon.  Unstoppable, as long as he stays focused.  No relationships.

When ex-BUD/S teammate, Aidan Monroe, interrupts his long-awaited sabbatical to call in a favor, Tristan reluctantly fills the simple request: take out his sister’s fiancé. 

One problem: Rachel Monroe – smokin’ hot, kind-hearted, and in desperate need of a protector.  After the best sex of his life, Tristan’s afraid unstoppable is just a memory.  Knowing Aidan’s temper, Tristan could be, too.

Rachel Monroe had a plan to help her mother.  Her brother ruined everything when his gorgeous, super-agent friend teleported her to some forsaken island – and his bed.  She’s drawn to him despite the fact he’s a professional agent, much like the people suspected of killing her father. 

Now, his enemies have come to her small town, looking for vengeance.  Have they found more than they bargained for?  Or, does the past have its own retribution in mind?

Things heat up between the two, especially after Jazz discovers another body in the condominium’s garage, and her terror drives her closer to Heath. Will Heath be able to solve the murders before Jasmine becomes the next victim? Or will he save Jazz, while, at the same time, losing his heart to her?
