A Cry For Help

It only takes one phone call and Navy SEAL Drake Avery is rushing back to Tennessee in the middle of the night. His sisters are in danger and he will do whatever it takes to protect them.

A New Twist

Now is not the time for a relationship, but damned if Drake doesn’t cross paths with a smokin’ hot kindergarten teacher named Karen Eastman. Miss Eastman has Drake thinking naughty thoughts when he needs to have his head in the game. He never thought he’d be hot for teacher.

Demons from the Past

Part of the hell of going home is that you know everyone, and they know you.  Just when you think you can trust someone, they can turn on a dime.  Old and new enemies are thrilled to discover Drake has a beautiful new weakness:  Karen.  But messing with the women in his life, is a mistake.  You mess with the bull, you get the horns.

EXCERPT

“Now, I want you to tell me all about yourself.  Starting with how you met my father, what kind of relationship you have with the sheriff, and how you ended up in this car scaring the piss out of my sister’s baby girl.”

“I’m not scaring no baby.”  

Drake held onto his gun with his left hand and with his right, he reached over the front seat and wrapped his big hand around the man’s scrawny neck.  “You wanna re-think your answer?”

The man wheezed.  Both of Fred’s hands came up to try and yank Drake’s iron finger’s away from his throat.  It was no use.  Finally, he gave up, his eyes bulging.  

“Nod if you’re going to answer my questions.”

The man gave the best nod he could under the circumstances.  Drake dropped him back into the front seat of his car.

“Prison.  I knew your old man from prison.  We done time together a couple of years ago.”

“He got ahold of you awfully fast considering he just got out three days ago.”

“Huey.  Huey called us.  He told us ole Norville was getting sprung.  He rounded us up.”  Great, it was a family affair.  His dad’s cousin Huey was in on things.  He’d always hated that fucker.

“Who’s us?”

“Us.”  

Drake punched him in the back of the head.

The man let out a loud yell.  “Are you trying to kill me?” he asked as he tenderly touched the spot where Drake’s fist had landed.

“That was a love tap.  Give me names.”

“I don’t know everybody.”

The guy was a moron, Drake wanted to hit him again just to see if it would jumpstart his brain.  “Give me the names you do know,” he gritted out.

“There’s Al, he did time for trying to steal a car.  But it was an unmarked police car a block away from a police precinct.  He’s none too bright.”

“That must mean he’s dumber ‘n dirt if you’re noticing.”  Fred looked confused.  “Go on,” Drake prompted.

“Leslie is a man, even though he has a girl’s name.  He don’t like it when we try to call him Les.  He got beat up a lot in prison.  I personally think he liked it.  Getting beat up, that is.  Then there’s Snake.  He’s with the brotherhood.”  

Drake thought he knew what he was talking about, but he wanted to be sure.

“What brotherhood?”

“You know, the Aryan brotherhood.  He’s a Nazi.  He says next month he’ll have more guys coming.”

Fuck.

“Why is Huey so hellbent on recruiting guys to help my father?”

“It’s the other way around.  Norville tells Huey what to do.  Your dad and his cousin used to own this town.  Huey’s been trying to keep things together, but Norville says he’s going to own the county with all his contacts.”

“How does the sheriff figure into all of this?”

“Snake told me that he doesn’t want to get his hands too dirty, he just wants kick-backs, so Huey’s been paying him and a judge off.”

Drake swallowed hard to keep the bile down.  Just what kind of family tree had he fallen out of?  And where the hell was Huey hiding out, because he sure as hell hadn’t been at the homestead last night.

“Where you from, Fred?”

“Kentucky.”

“This your car?”  Drake could see the man consider lying.  He knocked him on the same spot on the head.

“Ow.  That hurts.  It’s my aunt’s car.”  Drake would bet anything that his aunt didn’t know Fred had it.

“Fred, you’re going to head back to Kentucky tonight.  If I see your ass in Tennessee again, I’m going to kill you.  Do you hear me?”

“Huey’ll kill me if I leave.”  Drake set down his gun on the backseat, leaned over the front seat, grabbed him by the throat and used the thumb of his other hand to dig into the goose-egg on the man’s head.  He was gratified by Fred’s scream.

“I’ll go.  I’ll go.  Please stop.”  Drake waited a moment, then he felt tears hit the hand that was holding onto Fred’s throat.

“Give me your gun and I’ll let you loose,” Drake promised.

“I don’t have one.”  

Drake dug in harder.

“It’s in the glove box.”  

What a dumbshit.  He’d had his gun where it wasn’t readily available.

“Open the driver’s side door and get out of the car when I let you loose, Fred.  Then go to the hood of the car and assume the position.”

“I’ll do anything.  Just stop hurting me.”  

More tears hit Drake’s hand.  He released Fred and prayed he wouldn’t make a play for the gun in the glovebox.  Not that he’d have a problem subduing the asshat.  Nope, he just wanted Fred to be conscious and able to drive back to Kentucky in the next ten minutes.  

Fred opened the car door and was soon pressed spread-eagled over the hood of the car.  Drake leaned over the front seat and pulled Fred’s pistol out of the glovebox.  He then got out of the car and frisked Fred and found a switchblade in his boot.  

“Pop the trunk of the car,” Drake directed, wanting to see if there were any more weapons.

The smell of body odor assaulted him when the trunk opened.  

“My God man, haven’t you heard of deodorant?” Drake demanded.  It had been rank in the car as the man sweated, but the pile of dirty laundry made him gag.  

“I was going to go to the laundry-mat,” Fred defended himself.

“Just get home to Kentucky and burn your clothes, you can’t save them.  If I see you here again, you’re going to be the first one I target.  Are we clear?”

Fred nodded.  

“Say the words.  Are we clear?”

“Yes.  I’m leaving town now.  Can I have my gun?” he asked, proving just how stupid he was.  

Drake shook his head and pointed to the open car door.  “You’ve got one minute for me to see taillights.  Otherwise you’ll be wishing Huey was here.”

Fred stood there looking at him.

“One, two, three,” Drake started counting, and Fred scrambled towards the driver’s seat.  He hit his knee against the door.  Once again, Drake had to listen to him whine.  Fred gunned the car trying to get it to go.  It was obvious the parking brake was on, but that didn’t stop him from continuing to press on the accelerator.  God, he’d be lucky to make it out of Sevier County, let alone back home to Kentucky.  Finally, Fred figured out his problem and the car lurched forward, and he did a fast U-turn.  It had taken longer than the allotted time, but Drake always gave extra consideration to the chronically stupid.

Spin-Off of Navy SEAL Midnight Delta Series

This is what you need to know.

I keep the people around me safe,

And sometimes I rain vengeance on my enemies.

It’s who I am, and what I do.

As a former Army Ranger, I get the job done.

After an unforgivable betrayal by one of my own,

I created the Shadow Alliance.

We handle the dark and dangerous work,

Jobs that governments won’t.

And now, the sexy, smart, and feisty Allison Davies needs my help.

As an FBI Agent, enlisting my help could cost her job.

But, I’m her only hope.

There’s only one problem.

Our mutual desire just might get in the way.

One misstep and we become the hunted.

A price I just might be willing to pay.

Excerpt:

She pressed her lips to mine.  Soft and gentle.  I reciprocated.  Loving the feel.  I wanted—needed—to give her comfort.  But then she changed the pressure.  Her movements became urgent.

“Baby,” I tried to caution her.

“Declan, I need you.  I need this.”

I’d take her to bed and just hold her.  She needed comfort.  Then, as if she could read my mind…

“Declan, I’ve known you were special since I read your file.  I’ve wanted you since I saw you searching for Anna.  I’ve needed you since you convinced me I’m beautiful in your eyes.”

“Oh, Allie, you’re the one who’s the diamond.  I see all of your facets, all of your depths, and you shine, baby.  You shine.”  Her eyes lit up at my words, and I was so happy I’d found the right ones.  I eased her off my lap and stood up.  The hungry look in her eyes almost brought me to my knees.  Before she started to stand, I whisked her into my arms, and her eyes melted.  Good, I wanted her to feel as special as she was.

I headed to the bedroom I’d recently vacated.  As soon as I got her to the room, I let her slide down my body.  Since I was just wearing my boxers, there was no doubt how I was feeling.  But I needed to be sure this was truly what she wanted.  After I turned on the bedside light I found her sitting on the bed.  I knelt in front of her.

“Allie, are you sure?”

“Aren’t you?”

I looked at my dick and then back up at her.  She laughed.

“I really want this too,” she whispered.

“Then you might be wearing a few too many clothes,” I whispered back.  Leaning forward, I captured her mouth for a kiss.  Her lips parted and I unbuttoned her blouse.  Slowly, I drew the cotton sleeves down her shoulders, touching the silk of her skin as I went.  She gasped as I traced the curves of her breasts above the cups of her bra.  I broke away from her lips.

“God, look at you.”  I unclasped the front enclosure and her breasts spilled into my hands.  I thumbed her pink nipples and she moaned, and pressed hard into my hands.  She liked it when I plucked and pinched the tips of her breasts.

“Declan, that feels so good.”

I dipped my head and sucked her nipple into my mouth and flicked it with my tongue, loving her whimpers and gasps.  She grabbed my head and her nails bit into my scalp.  I wrapped my arms around her, and laid her down on the bed.  She was rubbing her jean clad legs together.  I thrust one hand between them and she slammed her legs together, locking it in place.  Like I wanted it anywhere else.  I rubbed against the seam of her jeans, and licked at the tender flesh of her swollen breasts.

“So good.”  She sighed.

She arched up, but it wasn’t enough.  I pulled off her jeans and panties.  She was truly beautiful.

“Now you.”

“Huh?”

“Your boxers,” she said.

“Not yet.  First I want to play some more.”  The woman had legs that wouldn’t stop.  I couldn’t believe that she ever doubted her attractiveness.  Whoever had been her past lovers had been absolute assholes.

She reached out to me, and I lowered myself into her arms, kissing those plump lips of hers, reveling in the jolt she once again gave me as our lips met.  Having our bodies meet was bliss.  Her breasts touching my chest was heaven.  I dragged my chest hair against her nipples and she groaned.

“Again.  Do that again.”  I did.  Slowly I inched downwards, kissing silken flesh along my way.  Peaches.  I smelled peaches, until finally I smelled peaches and musk.  Divine.  Parting her thighs, I found glistening pink magic.  Allie tensed.

“Relax.”

“I am.”  Sure she was.

I pressed her legs wider apart, but it was a bit of a struggle. “Honey, I just want to play.”

“I know.”

“You like this, don’t you?”  I blew against her folds.

“I don’t know.”  Yep, she had only been with assholes.

I parted her slick flesh and licked her.  She shuddered, but didn’t make a sound.  Peaches, spice, and Allie.  So good.  I looked up, and she was biting the base of her thumb.  Oh that was a challenge.  Her body betrayed her, it showed me exactly what kind of touches it liked, and when I added my fingers, she started to pant.

Up and down, around and around.

“Declan?  Come inside me now.”

“Not until you scream.”

My fingers found what they’d been searching for, and she squeaked and tightened in a good way.  Carefully, I sucked.

“Declan!  It’s too good.”  She was drenched in pleasure.

Almost there.

I stroked inwards, and bit her clit gently, flicking my tongue against her swollen flesh.  She let out a shriek, and pulsed her release.

I moved up to the nightstand and ripped off my boxers.  I tore open the condom and looked at Allie.

“Please, now!”

Slowly, I entered her tight depths.  I thought I was going to lose my mind.  It was pure bliss.  Those long legs curled around me, and she pulled me in.

“More!”  I gave her everything.  She gasped, but then smiled.  “Perfect.”

“Thank God.”

I began to move, and she met me.  We danced and twined, moving ever upwards. I felt my orgasm begin at the base of my spine.  I wasn’t going to last.  That beautiful face, those eyes that shimmered.  I dipped in for another kiss that shot sparks.

“Allie?”  I was hanging on by a thread.

She thrust up against me, her heels digging into my ass.  I felt her sheath begin to tighten and I thought my head would explode.

This woman, this beautiful woman let out a joyful sound that was my name, over and over again.

“Yes, God yes, Allie.”

I shot ever upwards until I found heaven.

Summer Series Showcase Week 2 – An Introdution to Fate Harbor

We asked Caitlyn to intoduce us to Fate Harbor,  it’s characters, and any other bits of information she would be willing to share. 

Introducing

FATE HARBOR

Trusting Chance is nearest and dearest because it is the first book I have ever written. Part of the reason I wrote Trusting Chance was to show that you could build a family even if it isn’t through blood. That people care for one another, that they really can support and love one another. Also, I wanted to show that even if bad things happen in childhood, that you can heal and grow from it, and become a strong person because of it.

Fate Harbor is a small town nestled among the evergreens overlooking Puget Sound. It still has a bit of a rough and tumble feel, a holdover from its founding in the late 1800s as a community of fishermen and lumberjacks, and the occasional wayward prospector. With a shortage of women, and an overage of men in survivalist mode, Fate Harbor adapted its culture to accept triad relationships of two men with one woman. Triads have a long history here as fully committed, lifelong relationships that enhance both the quality of life and the chances of survival in a very real world filled with obstacles and challenges.

Most of Fate Harbor’s residents are natives, and having grown up together there’s a strong communal bond. Neighbors here look out for one another. This warm and welcoming attitude has attracted many new, warm-hearted people as well, for whom Fate Harbor has become home and refuge. Butch and Betty Hutchins (Trusting Chance and Protecting Olivia) are among the newcomers, retirees from Southern California who sought the quiet and solace of the Northwest, after fostering many children.

The live and let live attitude that carries over from Fate Harbor’s frontier past welcomes a diversity of unique people and somewhat unconventional relationships. Wealthy charity CEO Chance Reynolds, Afghan war vet Sam Booth and local baker Josie Decker (Trusting Chance) are among those who have been able to flourish as a triad within the Fate Harbor community.

The people of Fate Harbor have fun, but they respect one another. One of the community’s enduring traditions is their commitment to the land. The beautiful blue skies, the mountains, and the myriad shades of green that surround them, sustains them through the seasons as they live and laugh and love together.

It’s a town full of quirky characters, each one with a story they want to share with you.

Summer Series Showcase Week 2 – Fate Harbor Series by Caitlyn O’Leary

Josie Decker and Chance Reynolds knew each other years ago when they were in the same foster home, before Josie’s birth mother reclaimed her. Now, Chance and his best friend, Sam Booth an Afghan war veteran are living in Fate Harbor, Washington, when Josie reestablishes ties with her foster parents and opens a bakery in the quaint town.

Chance realizes that growing up with her birth mother has left Josie with physical and emotional scars and a deep belief that she is unworthy of love. Fate Harbor is very accepting of triad alliances, and Chance believes that the relationship that will ultimately heal Josie is one that includes both he and Sam. Sam’s recent trauma, fighting for his country, has left him beyond hurt.

Chance has despaired of saving the brother of his heart, but finding Josie again has given him hope, and a plan. Can the three of them make the perfect future together?

Rather than coming between the two friends, she flees back to Boston. When Joshua and Ian find out that Olivia’s life is in danger, they realize that their friendship and Olivia mean more to them than any sense of betrayal. They recognize that to keep her they must learn to share her. Their background in law enforcement allows Joshua and Ian to protect Olivia while helping to discover who is behind the attempts on her life. While finding out who is behind the plot to kill Olivia, can they convince Olivia that the three of them are meant to be together and make a life in Fate Harbor?
