Special Forces: Will their chances for a happily-ever-after be blown to hell?
December 28, 2017
Balancing love and adventure, threats of death and promises of romance, in the Kindle World of Susan Stoker.
It’s a Kindle World only the gifted Susan Stoker could create: Special Forces, Operation Alpha.
She invited the best romance/thriller writers in the marketplace to contribute their stories.
The ladies are amazing romance writers.
Love and suspense roll out of their word machines with tension and intrigue.
I write better in dark alleys. I write thrillers. I write mysteries.
But all mysteries have romance just as all romance has its mystery.
Thanks, Susan, for letting me jump into the fray.

Haven Caldwell had the world at her feet. Traveling around the globe, hobnobbing with the elite, she did things other people could only dream of, but it was all a cover. As a covert operative of Deimos, a US black-ops agency that has more secrets than the CIA, she knew how to handle herself in any given situation, even if it required killing someone. But when her latest mission goes awry, leaving her in a wheelchair, she feels she has nothing left to live for.
Delta Force member, Sergeant First Class Lucas “Frisco” Ingram, will never forget the day he met the pretty spy whose life was turned upside down in a split second. Torn and bleeding, she begged him to leave her to die, but he couldn’t do it. Now, he can’t get her out of his head, and she wants nothing to do with him.
But when the threat of a nuclear bomb comes too close to American soil, Haven, Frisco, and the rest of the Delta and Deimos operatives must figure out who is behind it and how they can stop him.
While forced to work together, can Lucas convince Haven his feelings for her are not a result of guilt or pity and he has truly fallen for her? Will Haven figure out she has something worth fighting for staring her right in the face? Or will their chance for a happily-ever-after be blown to hell?

Four years ago, Charley Packstone was hopelessly stuck in a miserable life as the daughter of the thug running Kentucky’s deadliest outlaw motorcycle gang and the twin sister to the gang’s future leader.
As Kate Ward, she’s built a simple but lonely life for herself and her four-year-old daughter inside the Witness Protection Program.
Kate has rules—rules to keep her and her daughter hidden from the wrath of the motorcycle club that wants her dead. But one fateful night, she lets her guard down after meeting a handsome stranger—Navy Seal Colt Callaway—at a bar along the Virginia Beach boardwalk. And after a sexy one-night-stand, Colt resolves to penetrate the steep walls that protect Kate’s heart.
A dead rat left on Kate’s front porch the next morning sends a clear message: the biker gang she ratted out years ago has finally found her.
No matter how badly Colt believes he can save the troubled and beautiful woman he just met, Kate’s only choice is to grab her daughter and vanish under a fresh identity. But can she do it before someone close to her is killed? And can she truly say goodbye to Colt forever?

Growing up the daughter of the Knights MC’s President, people thought she had it all, but it was far from it. When the worst happened, she left it all behind her and focused on making something of herself, lending her skills to help her country.
Kyle hadn’t been ‘home’ for seven years, had never intended to go back. Then, just back from a contract with the military, she receives her orders from her uncle and employer, Duke, and returns. Working with the Knights brings her back into close contact with the one man she never wanted to see again, her father, but it also brings Jagger, the Knights VP.
Trust is hard for her, but Jagger proves it’s not wasted on him until the one thing she never expected comes out.
Maddox ‘Jagger’ Carter
Being Vice President of the Knights MC came with a lot of responsibility. However, being approached to assist a group of ex-military personnel to intercept and stop human, drugs, and munitions trafficking from South to North America was now top of Jagger’s list.
Meeting the elusive daughter of his President and working closely with her changes things for him. There’s another weight on his shoulders though – he knows the secret, but it isn’t his to tell. When it comes out, lives will be changed and he knows he’ll have to fight the battle to keep Kyle beside him where she belongs.
Taking down a trafficking ring isn’t easy. Like an octopus, their tentacles reach everywhere, and just as the net gets tighter around the ones they’re looking for they escape. Piece by piece they start to uncover the scale of the operation that they’re fighting against. Even with the best-of-the-best amongst them will Force Projection make a difference? And can you win every battle?

Roland Sand has killed two government operatives sent to execute him. He is arrested and represented in court by a beautiful young public defender, Eleanor Trent. Their eyes connect. So do their hearts, but both keep their feeling buried deep inside them.
Eleanor does not know that Sand is an assassin for a rogue intelligence agency that sells its deadly services to foreign nations as well as to its own country. He has angered his chief, the one-eyed Bohemian, by refusing to kill an accountant who accidentally saw the details of a top-secret mission. Sand sees no reason why an innocent man should die.
The Bohemian’s agents kidnap Sand and take him from the Durango, Colorado, jail. He is given one chance to redeem himself. He must carry out the assignment to assassinate the President of the United States. It is a mission sanctioned from inside the United States government.
Eleanor is furious, and she is frightened. She has lost cases before. But never has she lost a client. In desperation, he calls Navy SEAL Commander Patrick Hurt to help her track down the missing Roland Sand. She handled a case for one of Hurt’s friends years earlier, and he said she could count on him if she ever needed him.
At Midway Airport, Sand awaits the arrival of Air Force One. The President comes down the steps, and Sand sees Eleanor in the greeting committee. He is told, “Kill the President or we kill the lady.” He has only a second to make up his mind. And Hurt knows, if necessary, he must kill Sand to save the President.
