Nowhere to Hide by Lindsay McKenna (Delos series)
Lia Cassidy left the Army scarred physically and emotionally after a vicious attack by two fellow soldiers. She turns to helping others, working at a Delos Home School Charity in Costa Rica that aids abused women and children. But when the deadly drug lord, La Arana, attacks the school, Lia finds herself on the run for her life. The only person she can trust is the ex-SEAL sent to protect her.
Cav Jordan is strong, honorable and gorgeous…and intrigued by Lia. He knows she has suffered pain in her past, and he is determined to break through her barriers and earn her trust. But as Cav slowly chips away at the walls Lia has built, ghosts from her past threaten to destroy their fragile relationship.
Aloha Texas by Chris Keniston (Aloha series)
Former navy diver Nicholas Harper likes his new world as captain of a dive boat in Hawaii.
Powerhouse attorney Kara Lynn O'Conner's world revolves around her small Texas town where life is easy and safe.
Six-year-old Bradley Cooper is about to change everything.
Protecting Caroline by Susan Stoker (SEAL of Protection series)
Matthew “Wolf” Steel hated flying commercial. Luckily his job as a Navy SEAL meant he didn’t have to do it very often. He’d been unlucky enough to be assigned a middle seat on the cramped jet, but fortunately for him, the woman next to him was willing to switch seats with him. Hoping for a relaxing flight, Wolf was pleasantly surprised at the good conversation and sense of humor the woman had as they flew 36,000 feet over the countryside.
When Caroline boarded the plane to Virginia to move across the country for her new job she never expected to be seated next to the hottest guy she’d ever seen. She also never expected he’d be so easy to talk to. She knew he’d never be interested in talking to her if he hadn’t been trapped in the seat next to her, but it was a nice way to spend a long plane ride.
Neither Wolf nor Caroline were prepared for a terrorist hijacking of their plane, but if Caroline thought that would be the last time she’d see, or need, Wolf, she’d be sorely mistaken.

About Lindsay McKenna, Chris Keniston, and Susan Stoker
Lindsay McKenna lives her life as a risk taker, and it shines through the books she loves to write: romance, adventure and suspense. She started writing at age thirteen and continues to hone her writing skills to this day. She sold her first romance novel in 1981. The rest is history.
Because she went into the military, this experience became the backbone of her writing—she is credited with writing the first military romance novel (Captive of Fate, 1983, Silhouette Special Edition) and has created a thriving sub-genre within the romance field! As a New York Times bestselling author, she has sold 23 million books and in 32 foreign languages in her career thus far. Her many experiences in the U.S. Navy are backdrop for her understanding of the military in general, and also her very successful Morgan’s Mercenaries, which is an ongoing series in Silhouette to this day! Forty-five books strong!
Lindsay has gone Indie in 2015 and has created a new family saga on par with Morgan’s Mercenaries. It is known as the Delos series. There will be paperback and eBooks created under Blue Turtle Publishing, her company for her fans. Readers who love Morgan and his family are bound to fall in love with the Culver family. Delos is romantic suspense, which Lindsay is well known for. It took her five years to create and bring Delos to her readers. It was worth the wait, but we’ll let you decide that.
Lindsay loves to hear from her readers and loves to know what they’d like to see her write next. Stay up with the latest on the Delos series here. Please visit her website at www.lindsaymckenna.com.

An Excerpt from Saved by a SEAL
From Aloha Texas by Chris Keniston
Holy shit. Nick backed away from the bed until he bumped the wall behind him, his gaze steady on the frail, unconscious woman he'd once loved with everything in him. She wouldn't have done that to him. It was one thing to walk away, but to take his son? Son.
"No," he mumbled. "No." Pushed by a silent force, he turned on his heel and bolted out the door. In the hall, his gaze darted from side to side. He needed answers. Now. Just ahead he spotted the sign for the waiting room. The lawyer. She'd know.
With every step his pace quickened until he was practically running down the last strip of hallway. Gripping the frame with one hand, he flung himself through the door and skidded to a stop. A woman, maybe fiftyish with salt-and-pepper hair, wearing a dark suit, sat with her hands folded in her lap. Beside her, Kara read to a little boy.
Nick studied the child with as much neutrality as he could muster. He didn't have a whole lot of experience with little boys. Well, make that any experience, but still if he had to guess, he'd say the kid was maybe four or five years old. Five. If the boy were his, he'd be five. From where Nick stood, he saw a cute little kid with a mop of curly dark hair enjoying the story. The scene could have been any mother and son. Only he'd bet the Kona Queen this wasn’t Kara's son. He was Patty Ann's. And maybe his.
As questions of how and why circled in his head, he forced himself to remain silent, to wait for the end of the story, for the small child to raise his face so Nick could see. And then what? If paternity could be pegged at a glance, there'd be no need for DNA. Finally, Kara said the waited words, the end, and the little boy gleefully looked up at the woman and asked, "Now can I see Mommy?"
Five words and Nick felt the vise around his heart tighten another notch. Patty Ann had been his lover, his friend, his heartbreak, but she was this little boy's mommy.
He took a step forward, and all eyes in the room turned to him. Someone might as well have sucker punched him in the solar plexus. Crystal blue eyes stared up at him. The same eyes he looked at every day in the mirror.
"My God," he breathed.
There'd be no need for DNA. Anyone who had ever seen a photograph of Nick as a small child would swear in a court of law that this was the same boy.
Fabio, darling model of the romance covers during the 1980s and 1990s, before he retired, showed up on a total of 460 romance covers in our romance industry! An amazing amount!
In 2016, a very popular cover model, Jason Baca from Saratoga, California, just broke Fabio’s long-standing record. On February 10, the San Francisco Chronicle did an article on how Jason is now THE top romance cover model in the Romance Industry!
Jason has done 461 romance covers, breaking Fabio's record. Why should I care you ask? Guess whose cover is number 461? That's right. Saved by a SEAL is the cover that broke Fabio's record!
The authors of Saved by a SEAL, Lindsay McKenna, Chris Keniston and Susan Stoker, sure hope this sells more books for the Disabled Vets! It's rather cool that a charity anthology broke Fabio's record!
