Everest Base Camp) traveling, and movies of all kinds.

Even two years later, going outside = blood-freezing panic.
She’s made herself a haven in the only place she’s felt safe since her captivity: Oak Creek, Wyoming—home of her Linear Tactical friends. They don’t realize the extent of her emotional trauma, but at least she knows she can trust them.
Only one person knows the truth about the fragile mental state she’s hiding: Zodiac agent, Mark Outlawson—code name: Outlaw.
He’s witnessed her panic firsthand. Knows what it does to her.
When info on a human trafficking group—one connected to her own captivity—comes to light, it’s clear only Jenna’s expertise can stop them. Mark will have to prove Jenna can trust him—to keep her secrets, to protect her, to help fight her demons.
He’ll prove this outlaw is a hero.

Don't miss this former-military warrior and the woman he'll risk everything to protect. Full length novel with no cliffhanger, no cheating, and a happily-ever-after guaranteed.
Lucas Everett knows that firsthand. It's why he and his former Navy SEAL brothers created the Resting Warrior Ranch.
They aren’t doctors, but they can offer the healing freedom of their Montana range. And they specialize in training service and emotional support animals to help sooth even the worst emotional scars.
Usually, soldiers show up at their door. But this time it's Evelyn Taylor—a soldier in a very different kind of war.
She's as skittish as one of the horses Lucas gentles. But he’s learned how to be patient with animals, and he’s more than happy to be patient with this quiet beauty too.
When Evelyn’s past nightmares show up in Montana, she thinks she has to run again, but Lucas isn’t going to let that happen. He’s protected his country against the worst types of threats, and he’ll protect her too.
She’s met the rancher, but now she’s about to meet the SEAL.
It’s the instinct former-SEAL Jude Williams must fight every time someone touches him. His six months being tortured in an enemy prison camp may be long over, but he’s got scars—all over his body and mind—keeping that time at the forefront of his psyche.
So how could he even consider giving in to the desire he has for the town’s coffeehouse owner?
Lena Mitchell has big gray eyes and a bigger smile—she’s full of life, right down to her purple and teal streaked hair.
There are so many reasons Jude should stay away from her. So many ways he’s bad for her. But when danger shows up on Lena’s door, keeping his distance is no longer an option.
He’ll protect her from any threat.
But who will protect her from him?
And he’s running out of time to save her…
The last person security expert Luke Patterson ever expected to see again is in desperate trouble. Claire Wallace witnessed her boss’s murder…and the killer is tearing her quiet life apart to find her. Luke will do anything to protect the childhood friend he never forgot. But as their secrets become an inescapable trap, will they survive to have any future?

Harlan Young knows that from personal experience. Walking away from Grace Townsend, even with the best intentions and no other choice, still haunts him to this day.
So when he had the chance to return to Montana, and be part of something as special as the Resting Warrior Ranch, he took it. Here he can help train service and emotional support animals for former soldiers with PTSD.
And maybe, just maybe, convince Grace to give him a second chance.
He never expected that second chance to be in the form of a fake marriage in order to save the land she loves so much. But he’ll do it, as well as help fight the danger closing in on her. She thinks she’s alone, but she’s wrong.
She knew him as a boy, but now he's a man. And real men don’t run.
Grant Carter knows that fact intimately. The shrapnel sitting on his spine from an IED is a daily reminder.
But the constant pain won’t stop him from working at the Resting Warrior Ranch, training service and emotional support animals to help people with PTSD—something else he’s intimately familiar with.
He’ll fight for those who can’t fight for themselves.
When his neighbor, shy veterinarian Cori Jackson, is humiliated by her ex-boyfriend for things she’d like to experiment with in bed, Grant is more than happy to show her real men aren’t threatened by an adventurous spirit.
The more time he spends with her, the more he realizes the literal girl-next-door is the one for him. And when Cori finds herself in the middle of a dangerous conspiracy surrounding the animals she treats, Grant will make sure she makes it out alive.
He's a fighter. Was one in the Navy SEALs and still is one today. And he’ll fight for Cori.
Even if it costs him everything.
Noah Scott spent two months in an enemy prison camp but made it out alive—unlike most of his SEAL team. He’s one of the lucky ones but doesn’t always feel that way with his scarred body and daily fight against PTSD.
Working with the animals at the Resting Warrior Ranch helps. So what if he trains service dogs, fosters a couple of kittens, and has an alpaca as one of his best friends?
He’ll take whatever holds back the darkness.
When beautiful Kate Tillbeck arrives at the Resting Warrior Ranch neck deep in danger, Noah knows he can’t stand by silently. Especially when the threat centers around a dog fighting ring—and some of the pups he trained may be involved.
But to save the animals he loves and the woman he can’t get out of his mind, Noah will have to embrace the darkness he’s pushed down for years.
And hope he doesn’t lose himself in the process.
She never expected to see her old flame again. Or be kidnapped by him.
Sophia Reardon may work for the FBI, but she's no field agent. Her assignments are mundane--the way she likes it--until a favor for a colleague puts her in the wrong place, at the wrong time, and definitely in front of the wrong person: Cameron Branson.
The line between right and wrong is blurring faster than he can bring the criminals down.
The moment Sophia walks into his long-term undercover operation, Cameron knows his "employers" will want to break her. Keeping her close and hurling her into his world of deception and terror is the only way to keep her alive and his cover intact.
As everything begins to unravel, Cameron will have to choose--finish the mission that could protect so many or save the one woman he's never been able to forget.
