Series Description: Contemporary Romance set in storied locales that offer heart-pounding adventure.
We follow the lives of four men working in the treacherous law enforcement sector. From a Marine Lieutenant fresh off the battlefield─to detectives on small town police departments, all befriend a psychiatrist who leads a paramilitary unit into the destruction of terrorist hotbeds. A sense of duty will guide our brotherhood of men to undertake daring quests with disregard for life-threatening consequences, while our heroines watch their backs.
As a whimsical diversion, a woman’s diary flows through each novel, read by the heroine, about a never-ending tale of her “Misadventures in Dating”…
First book in the Series, "The Silk Charade"....
Former Marine Lieutenant Derek Carter returns home from the grim war in Iraq to the gleaming sunshine of Naples, Florida─under the pretense of attending law school. In reality, Derek has enlisted with a covert government agency to impede global drug traffickers. Surrounded by his paradise, Derek falls in love… for the very first time with the beautiful, yet insecure Katie Winters. A young lady so depressed by her past romantic failures, she reads from an imaginary woman’s journal of love. The fanciful tale entitled My Whimsical Adventures in Dating…where every bachelor has a number…weaves in and out of this storyline; the divorcee becoming so desperate to land a decent new beau, she invents a witchdoctor to resolve her malfunctioning love-life!
Derek’s assignment─to ensnare Angelo Natale; an Italian clothing designer who is smuggling opium within the pockets of inconspicuous silk garments manufactured in China. The shipments continue to be off-loaded from the Miami Docks under the eyes of corrupt DEA Agents. Both Derek and Katie’s families own competitive boutiques in Naples and were misleadingly sold the silk apparel, making Derek the perfect deception to unleash upon the criminal Natale.
However, Derek’s ruse twists dangerously for the lovers as he and Katie embark on a harried ride, filled with mistrust and uncertainty… through Venice, Italy. Here and impetuous Katie will try to aid Derek in subduing the evil Natale. Can the couple endure to exchange possible wedding vows, or will one return to Naples alone? If Derek does succeed, a final perilous challenge still awaits him-as a member of the counterinsurgency unit that rescued him from the clutches of the Taliban in Afghanistan, will keep trying to coax Derek into repaying that favor.
