he felt as if that might just be his penance.

it had been horrible, but he had found a way to deal with that. What he was
finding hard to process was how he had pushed Maddox away right when he needed

They load up and go to war. Maddox comes home and it takes all of them to help
him heal. Little do they know, they are now the ones being hunted.
Glenn and Maddox find their way back together, or will this release point

On the floor
just inside the door, a man lay dead, a nasty looking knife wound at his
temple. When Glenn’s gaze moved to the back of the room, he saw two men fully
engaged in a knife battle. Both were bleeding heavily, but fighting with a
confidence that spoke of hours of training. But only one of them was a man
Glenn knew better than himself.

his spotter, but stopped when Maddox threw him a quick glance that gave Glenn
pause. For whatever reason, Maddox needed to do this. Glenn cursed when Maddox
moved with his opponent, putting his back toward Glenn. There were large strips
of skin missing from his back, and huge, bleeding red welts. Add to that the
knife wound Glenn had spotted on Maddox’s upper chest and the huge gash that
marred his stomach, and he had no clue how he hell the man was still standing.
watched, Maddox’s opponent faked right in a move so obvious Glenn knew it was
over. A split second later, Maddox cried out in triumph as he drove his knife
to the hilt into the top of the other man’s skull. He was dead before he hit
the ground. Maddox turned, swaying on his feet, his breathing heavy and fast.
The two of
them stood in that hellhole, the smell of blood, and death thick in the air,
and simply stared at each other. Maddox’s expression was one Glenn had never
seen before. He had witnessed Maddox dispatch their enemies without any
hesitation, doing what had to be done, but there was always a flicker of pain
at having to take another man’s life. Especially in war when both were simply
following the orders of others. In this moment, there was no remorse. No pain.
No emotion whatsoever. It was as if Maddox had checked out.

chest when Maddox flinched.
“Am I dead?”
Maddox asked in a stilted voice.

Q: Every book is special to an
author.What is it about this book that
makes it special for you?
A:This is the final book in this
series of four, and this whole series was my first foray into MM’s. Maddox and
Glenn were always going to be the most emotional journey in this series, but I
never anticipated how it would affect the readers.I have had more people asking about this book
than any other in this series.
Q:What was your favorite part of writing this book?
A:Finally getting to see Maddox
and Glenn work their way to an HEA.They
have intrigued me from the very beginning and seeing them get together was so
rewarding.As an author, you most
definitely bond with your characters, and in this book, that bond was strong!
Q.Why do you always include a danger element to your books?
A.I write what I love to
read.I love books that take you on a
journey, but where the characters face a challenge that adds an element of
urgency to them and to the book.As a
reader, there is nothing I like more than getting that goose bump, hair rising
on the back of my neck feeling as I join the characters within the book I am
reading on the journey to solve their mystery.I want to give that to my readers.
Q.Do you have anything to say to your current readers or to those that
haven’t yet read you work?
A.If you have read any of my
books, thank you so very much!It blows
my mind that someone has actually read something that I wrote, but gosh I hope
you enjoyed it!Did you?Please let me know, I find I suffer from a
slight case of needy-nelly with my writing.If you haven’t read my book, but you love erotic romance stories between
strong men and an independent woman, where the path to their happily ever after
can be a bumpy one, but there is always a happily ever after, and their love
and laugher is real on every page, then you’ll find my books right up your
