Undercover cop Cassidy Blake's top priority was to infiltrate mercenary millionaire Derek Mansfield's life—and take him down. Cass expected to find a ruthless criminal; instead she found a darkly magnetic man whose bone-melting intensity blurred the line between her duty and her own desires. Derek Mansfield had returned to Chicago to settle a score, not to become entangled in a seductive game of cat and mouse with the intriguing Cass. But the secrets in her eyes and her searing kisses had made him hungry for more than revenge. Could either of them risk their hearts in this perilous game of smoke and mirrors?

Can she outwit, outrun a murderer? And if she survives the night, does she have the strength to become the person destiny has created for her? Shades of Holly Enter Zach Howard, a man who’s finally managed to get his life on track, until that is, he comes across a pair of otherworldly sunglasses. Once on, they reveal scenes of a past he would like to forget and a future he finds terrifying. If he can trust what the visions portray, Holly, the one woman he’s never stopped loving, is in danger of a psychopath. Christmas is a breath away, but will Holly take her last breath?

This time around, does she have the courage to fight for Zach’s life at the risk of her own? Or can miracles and angels save them both? Killer Shades Jenna Barnes slips on a pair of simple sunglasses, but they’re not so simple. Jenna soon realizes they’re dangerous when people start dying, including her soon to be ex-husband.

If Jenna doesn’t stop asking questions, he knows she could be next. He needs to guarantee that doesn’t happen. But is he willing to lose his career, even his life to save her? Because a pair of sunglasses can kill, and he’s soon going to find out the death of Jenna’s husband is just the beginning.

Get the first four books in the New York Times bestselling Delta Force Heroes series all in one action-packed bundle! Rescuing Rayne: As a flight attendant, Rayne Jackson is used to cancellations, but she never dreamed her latest would lead to a whirlwind tour of London with a handsome stranger…or a life-altering night in his bed. One evening is all the enigmatic man can give her, and Rayne greedily takes it, despite suspecting it will never be enough. Heading home after another extreme mission, Keane "Ghost" Bryson hadn't planned to seduce someone during his layover, but Rayne is too sweet to resist. Being a Delta Force member means lying to protect his identity, which is unfortunate, considering Rayne seems made for Ghost. For the first time in his life, regret fills him as he slips away the following morning. Both are shocked when, months later, they meet again—under the worst possible circumstances. Seems fate has given them a second chance…if they can survive the terrorist situation they're in. If Rayne can forgive Ghost his lies. And if Ghost can trust Rayne to be strong enough to endure the secrets and uncertainty that come with loving a Delta Force soldier. Rescuing Aimee: Aimee O’Brien has harbored a not-so-little crush on her school’s new first-grade teacher since the beginning of the year. Tall, muscled, with long hair and a beard, and a penchant for wearing silly ties to amuse his students…the man is too gorgeous for words. No one is more surprised than her when Tony makes his interest clear. Tony Santoro’s time in the military directly influenced his new choice of career—and his choice in women. He’s looking for someone of substance, and Aimee has far more to offer than just her adorably disheveled look. The very day he finally works up the nerve to ask Aimee out, is the day unspeakable violence explodes in the school. Trapped in the gym, Aimee and Tony will have to work together to get out with their lives…and the lives of the dozens of students trapped with them. Rescuing Emily: Renting out the apartment over his garage shouldn’t be a life-changing decision, but when Delta soldier Cormac “Fletch” Fletcher meets Emily Grant, he feels an instant connection. He can’t stand the thought of Emily and her young daughter living anywhere unsafe. Offering cheap rent is a small price to pay for their safety…and Fletch’s peace of mind. Being a single mother is difficult at best, but renting the extremely affordable space from Fletch makes Emily’s life a lot easier…until it doesn’t. Suddenly all the money she’s saving thanks to Fletch’s generosity is going into the hands of a blackmailer. And what little food Emily can afford goes to her daughter Annie, so the girl doesn’t go to bed hungry…leaving Emily weaker and weaker. When miscommunication has Emily assuming Fletch is in on the blackmail, he not only has to gain her trust, but also deal with a man holding a grudge against Fletch and his entire Delta Force team. A task made more difficult when the dangerous man gets his hands on Emily and Annie... Rescuing Harley: Video game coder, Harley Kelso, thought a tandem skydive would help her make her latest game more realistic. Instead, it literally put her in the arms of the sexiest man she’s ever seen. Geeky to the core, Harley is the polar opposite of big and burly Beckett, but that doesn’t stop her from wanting to play more carnal games with the sexy soldier. When Beckett “Coach” Ralston offers to fill-in at a friend’s skydiving club, he doesn’t suspect he’ll meet a woman who will change his life—and he definitely doesn’t expect her to save it. But that’s exactly what happens when an accident mid-air forces Harley to land them both safely. She’s earned Coach’s complete gratitude, and even more, sexual interest… Until she disappears without a trace. With Harley missing, a happy ending might not be in the cards for the man who loves her—especially when he becomes the main suspect. *** Read what others are saying about New York Times bestselling author, Susan Stoker: "Riveting action and characters you'll love!” Elle James, NYT Bestselling Author “If you love alpha heroes and nail-biting romantic suspense, then you can’t go wrong with Susan Stoker.” Sawyer Bennett, NYT Bestselling Author “No one does military romance like Susan Stoker!” Corinne Michaels, NYT Bestselling Author “Susan Stoker knows what women want.
