About Janie Crouch
For readers who still believe in heroes.
USA TODAY bestselling author Janie Crouch writes what she loves to read: passionate romantic suspense.
Janie recently relocated with her husband and their four teenagers to Germany (due to her husband's job as support for the U.S. Military), after living in Virginia for nearly 20 years. When she's not listening to the voices in her head (and even when she is), she enjoys engaging in all sorts of crazy adventures (200-mile relay races; Ironman Triathlons, treks to Mt. Everest Base Camp) traveling, and movies of all kinds.
Her favorite quote: "Life is a daring adventure or nothing." ~ Helen Keller.

The stars aren’t wrong.
Zodiac Tactical is my company. It’s run by those I’ve chosen for their skills and ability to outmaneuver adversaries. We guard, protect, rescue…assist on the side of the angels.
We eliminate the threat when nobody else can.
My pastime of putting bad guys out of business has created powerful enemies, but I’ve always made sure there was nothing in my life I couldn’t live without.
Until now. Until her.
She’s not a warrior, she’s an artist. She sees colors everywhere and greets the world—and me—with a smile. I knew I shouldn’t come near her from the beginning, but she’s everything I’ve never been able to be.
And now a monster has taken her, caged her, to get even with me.
My code name is Aries. And I will burn the world to the ground to get her back.
USA Today and Publisher's Weekly bestselling author Janie Crouch brings the long-awaited follow-up to her Linear Tactical series: Zodiac Tactical—the team of protectors who stand at the front line in the face of danger. Come meet Ian DeRose, the safeguarding warrior who will do anything to defend gentle Wavy Bollinger.
Guilty as charged.
Zodiac Tactical is the company that gave me a second chance. We guard, protect, rescue...eliminate the threat when nobody else can. And as a former SEAL, I’m good at those things. Good with weapons, good with missions.
But with people...not so good.
So when a gruesome enemy takes Bronwyn Rourke, one of Zodiac’s newest young recruits—with blue eyes that take up nearly her whole damn face—I shouldn’t take it personally. Shouldn’t allow her to consume my every thought and become my only mission.
They took her because they thought she was alone. Easy prey. That no one would fight for her.
They were wrong.
My code name is Virgo. And I will grind my enemy to dust to bring her home.
