Special Forces: Operation Alpha: Protecting Bobbi (part of Susan Stoker's Special Forces World)
After the unexpected death of his sister, Ron Marshall is wholly unprepared to take custody of his two-year-old niece. Between his classified position as a member of the U.S. Marine Corps Force Recon unit and his role as a single father, he hasn’t thought about women or sex in the six months since he got custody. However, his niece’s new pre-school teacher breaks down all of his defenses, especially since they have a history.
Single mom Bobbi Granger has struggled since the death of her husband, but when her high school crush walks in with his niece, things may be changing for the better. She’s not particularly thrilled about dating another Marine—especially one who goes deep undercover at a moment’s notice—but she can't deny the pull she feels for him.
When Ron is called away for an unexpectedly long mission and trouble finds Bobbi, will he get back in time to help or will he lose his second chance with the woman he’s been thinking about since high school?
Brotherhood Protectors: Catching Lana (part of Elle James's Brotherhood Protectors World)
U.S. Marine Corps Major Mark Garrison turns heads when he's not trying to be invisible. He's handsome, muscular and looking to try something new when he heads off to Montana to meet with the Brotherhood Protectors. Things look even better when the sexy redhead he's been lusting after practically falls into his lap.
At six-foot-one, Lana Callahan has always felt awkward around men. Her job as a sports and entertainment publicist puts her around hot celebrities on a regular basis, but she shies away from good-looking men. A new assignment from her boss takes her to Montana and she finds herself face-to-face with the one guy who makes her long for more than casual sex.
Lana’s wary of getting too close to the gorgeous Marine she’s been fantasizing about for two years, but he isn’t about to give up now that he’s found her again. Just as things heat up between them, her client’s past catches up to him, putting Lana in the crosshairs. Mark’s first assignment with the brotherhood could very well be his last, and this time Lana might slip through his fingers for good.
Special Forces: Operation Alpha: Protecting Delilah (part of Susan Stoker's Special Forces World)
Real dad…fake wife
Dedicated U.S. Marine Eric Lopez hasn’t been the same since losing his wife in childbirth. Drowning himself in work—and working out— was the only way to cope with his grief and the pressures of being a single parent. But now that he’s become a member of the elite Force Recon, Eric needs help with his five-year-old son, Elias. The answer to his prayers is a gorgeous nanny who needs protection.
Brilliant biologist Delilah Lancaster has been living a lie. On the run from her abusive ex-husband, she's hidden her identity and taken refuge as a live-in nanny. With the job coming to an end, Delilah scrambles to figure out her next move, until her sweet elderly neighbor sets her up with a hunky Marine who just so happens to be a single father. He needs a nanny, she needs protection, so it's a match made in Heaven.
A marriage of convenience wasn’t on either of their radars, but it's the only way—as long as they can keep their feelings in check. He makes her feel safe, she makes him feel things he hasn't felt in a long time, and the chemistry between them is anything but fake. Will Eric be able to protect his pretend family or will Delilah’s past come between them?

Life as a CIA operative might be exciting, but living under the radar gets lonely.
Meeting someone, much less having a relationship, is the most impossible mission of all.
There was someone... once. But she was looking for a white picket fence and I was headed for war.
Now, my years of service to my country are catching up with me and I’m ready for a change.
I just never expected that change to be Shannon, or that she would be in trouble.
The man in me can’t forget that damn kiss. The Marine in me is ready to protect her at all costs.
She might not want my help, but I’m not walking away this time.
Even if it won't have the ending either of us were looking for...
