Blurb: Jesse is an unclaimed omega. He’s also been a member of an exceptionally nasty drug cartel in California who’s been wanting to go legit for a long time.

Connor was a mid-level drug runner who turned on his bosses when he found out they were involved with something he couldn’t accept. He’s also a single alpha.

U. S. Marshall Max Sandoval knows that Jesse and Connor’s enemies are all looking for single men. Pairing them up should throw people off their scent, and it saves the Marshalls on housing. Having Connor claim Jesse also ensures that Connor will always have a bodyguard on hand, because Jesse’s skills are valuable and their bond will force Jesse to stay by Connor’s side.

Unfortunately, neither the omega nor the alpha is initially enthusiastic. Neither of them has ever wanted to be part of a claimed pair, and Connor is terrified of forcing himself on an unwilling omega. Mutual reluctance and unfamiliarity leads to misunderstandings, caused by powerful attraction, high stakes and the constant threat of danger.

Blurb: For eighteen years, Nathan Truman and Quinn Anders were best friends. One born of wealth and privilege, the other born to working people, Nathan and Quinn shared everything. Sports, music, first kiss, first love.

For sixteen years, Nathan has tried to forget Quinn. Tried to forget the stolen moments they’d shared as kids. He joined the Marines, married, not once but twice, went into law enforcement. He forgot.

For sixteen years, Quinn couldn’t stop remembering. He fell into addiction, found music, lost himself, and became a country music superstar. He never forgot.

Sixteen years after their one night together, tragedy conspires to reunite them.

The murder of Quinn’s father sets them on a collision course not only with their past but with a killer. Nathan and Quinn struggle to deal with their past while the present slowly crashes around them. Brought together by grief, their tentative new beginning may very well come to a sizzling end, leaving them both out in the cold forever.

Blurb:  Talon Valdez knew when he transformed into an enhanced human, his life and his dreams were finished. Reviled, mistrusted, and often locked away, the enhanced were viewed as monsters, despised by the public, and never trusted to serve in the military or any law enforcement agency.

His last chance is to partner with Talon, an enhanced with deadly abilities who doesn’t trust regular humans with their secrets and wants Finn to fail.

Blurb:  After an undercover assignment that changed his life forever, FBI agent Donovan Cintron is barely hanging on to sanity. His new mission is to forget, by any means necessary, so he tries his hardest. Pills. Booze. The warm bodies that never quite measure up to what he’d had. What he’d lost. It’s almost a relief when he learns his identity might be compromised—except he’s not the only one exposed. So is the husband he hasn’t stopped needing all these years later. He’d been aching to die, but for Levi Nieto, Donovan will live. To protect. To regret. To remember.

The realization that everything he loved was a farce sent Levi Nieto spinning out of control, and running away from the memories. Now Donovan is back in his life, still fully entrenched in darkness. Their physical connection is one thing, but the truth of who they are to each other remains trapped among the anger, violence and lies suffocating them. Fixing what’s broken will take more than each man exposing his scars. Secrets—and blood—must be spilled.
