Blayze King was many things. A firefighter, friend, brother, and son, but was he a father? He barely remembered the woman who claimed he'd got her pregnant, but he'd do anything to take care of his child. Even if it meant dealing with the volatile and irrational woman who might be carrying his baby. He'd make it work, somehow, even though he'd rather spend his time with Dawn. Just when he found a chance at a relationship with a woman who was sexy, sassy, and stood on her own two feet, his past could forestall his future.
For love and family.
Dawn Swanson was over playboys and one-night stands. She'd helped raise her sister's son and now alone for the first time in her adult life, she wanted more than bar hookups and casual sex.

Blayze King was sex personified and he was funny, interesting and she genuinely liked him, but with his current complications should they move forward, or was it the universe telling her to bail?
Till death do us part.
A forever love isn't guaranteed. Especially when evil watches for an opportunity to extinguish the fledgling fire that burns between Blayze and Dawn. No matter the cost.

Life was quiet in Hollister, South Dakota, and that was exactly why Eden Wade relocated to the middle of nowhere after her husband died. Small town problems, with a dash of small-town drama. Perfect. Peaceful. Relaxing. At least until he hit town. All those muscles stacked on top of a superior attitude and those mesmerizing eyes. Doctor Wheeler was a flashing warning sign, one she couldn't resist. He was a bad boy with a capital B.
All he wanted was beer and a meal but instead, he ended up witnessing an argument that escalated into a knife fight. Forced into action to save a man's life, he fell headlong into the small town's business. There was nothing to hold him in Hollister. Well, almost nothing.

Memories–– hold no future.
Harmony Flinn had a chance to leave the drudgery of her small-town existence. The man she loved left her long ago, and he never came back. Her life was empty except for her art. When presented the chance of a lifetime, she'd grabbed onto that hope and jumped at the opportunity. Her desire to live anywhere but where she was landed her in a world she didn't recognize with a lurking evil her past hadn't prepared her to evade.
A Collision–– of the past and the present.
Reaper's mission was simple, find and eliminate a monster. With no anchor in the past to ground him, he threw himself into his next kill. His target's trail led him to a web of illegal deals and vicious crimes that curled through Paris' underbelly. His target sat in the middle of the swirling evil that had encircled Harmony with its shadow of death. Reaper had made a deal with the devil years ago. Now, he delivered Satan's chosen for Guardian, to protect the innocents of this world.

The operative known only as Charley dove headfirst into a chance of a lifetime. Her temporary partner radiated a magnetic personality, sexy smile, gorgeous body and they formed an easy comradery, but she could sense darkness below the shiny veneer. She wanted more than a working relationship with this man, and she let him know in no uncertain terms the attraction would come with no strings attached.
Unfortunately, the complication of a relationship was the one thing Charley couldn’t afford. A foreboding cloud draped her future, bringing a deluge she’d managed to outrun and outmaneuver… or so she thought.
When you exist within the shadows, nothing is as it seems.
Attacked at the heart of their operations, both in Washington D.C. and the South Dakota Annex, the Kings of Guardian go on the offense to protect the lives of their families, friends, and innocents caught in the crossfire.
This is War.
Who declared it? Where are they hiding and how did the Guardians miss the threat that has blown their world apart?
Survival isn't guaranteed.
To turn the tide, the Guardians must survive and protect those they love. But in that effort, there are no certainties. Theirs is a dangerous profession.

He didn’t want a new partner until he met Kallie. She was wicked sharp, also ran on caffeine, and rocked a smoking hot body.
Detective Kallie Redman was desperate for a new beginning. The Hope City Police Department gave her that chance, although her new partner was a distraction. Smart, generous, and too sexy for words.
Paired together on a high-profile murder case with the press and their superiors breathing down their necks placed them under the microscope with intense pressure to get results, threatening their newfound relationship.
Brock began to wonder if he’d have a job at the end of the case—or a shot at a life with Kallie.
