Two Recent Releases By Kaylea Cross

Keeping Up With Author Kaylea Cross

If you read romantic suspense novels, you may already be a fan of Kaylea Cross. She is one of my favorite military romantic suspense authors. I’ve been following her Titanium Security and her Bagram Special Ops series even though I’ve fallen behind now and really need to catch up. Although she has finished Titanium Security, she has started a new series: Hostage Rescue Team and has just released book one, Marked, which I wanted to share with you.

When danger lurks behind a familiar face…

Successful architect Rachel Granger loves her job and her life, but when a terrorist on the FBI’s most wanted list targets her, there’s only one man she can trust. She hasn’t seen Jake in years but her former college friend told her he’d always be there for her and she definitely needs him now. Even though her feelings for him go far deeper than friendship and just being around him risks her heart, she would do anything to keep those she loves safe from a madman bent on unleashing hell.

Only one man from her past can help

FBI Special Agent Jake Evers made the biggest mistake of his life when he let Rachel slip through his fingers over two years ago. It doesn’t matter that he hasn’t seen her since then—if she needs him, he’ll be there. When he learns that she’s the target of a domestic terror cell, he’ll do everything in his power to keep her safe. He’s never gotten over her and won’t risk losing her again now that she’s reappeared in his life. But the threat is more widespread than they realized and now it’s a race against time to keep her and scores of innocent civilians alive.

The most dangerous threats of all…

Partway through her third deployment to Bagram, Army nurse Lt. Erin Kelly is burned out and headed for a well-deserved leave back home in Montana. But when a mysterious stranger shows up and unintentionally drags her into harm’s way with him, she suddenly finds herself an unwitting target of the U.S.’s number one high value target: the notorious American-born terrorist known as Rahim. Now stuck in a CIA safe house with the sexy operative, it’s impossible to ignore the explosive attraction between them…or to forget that death is stalking them both. 

Are the ones you don’t see coming.

CIA operative Wade Sandberg is a man caught between worlds. He’s spent the past three years living deep undercover amongst the enemy, infiltrating the network of the U.S.’s most wanted terrorist—until the kidnapping of a high-ranking American official forced him to blow his cover. Officially sidelined from the investigation to bring down Rahim, Wade knows he’ll never be able to work in the region again. When he’s sent back stateside with Erin, keeping his hands off her proves to be even harder than making the transition back into western civilization. And when Rahim takes his revenge by unleashing a devastating attack on U.S. soil, Wade will do everything in his power to protect the woman he loves and destroy the man who’d once trusted him with his life.

Available from Amazon:  Danger Close (Bagram Special Ops) (Volume 4)

Sunday Series Spotlight: Bagram Special Ops by Kaylea Cross

Sunday Series Spotlight: Titanium Security Series by Kaylea Cross

Kaylea Cross is one of my favorite military romantic suspense authors and she has recently released Extinguished, the fourth book in her exciting  Titanium Security series, which I have been following this year.    If you are a fan of this genre but haven’t yet read any of Cross’s work, this is a good series to check out and one I highly recommend!

Although I’ve only read the first two books in this series, I have been very impressed!  Ignited and Singed are both sexy page-turners with a fantastic blend of sizzling romance and heart-pounding action that will keep you riveted until the very end and eager for more.

Ignited ( #1)

Ignited Book Cover

Published 2013

Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17911638-ignited?from_search=true

Purchase from Amazon: Ignited (Titanium Security Series)

When her father is murdered by a Taliban cell in the tribal regions of Pakistan, Khalia Patterson reluctantly steps into his shoes to carry on the legacy of Fair Start Foundation, a non-profit group dedicated to furthering the education of girls. There she meets Hunter Phillips, the ex-SEAL and head of her Titanium security team, and quickly learns that coming to Pakistan might prove to be a deadly decision. 

Battling demons of his own, Hunter grudgingly leads Khalia’s protective detail as a favor to his boss. From their first meeting it’s clear she’s going to be trouble, and that the cell that killed her father is hell bent on taking her out as well. Keeping her alive is one of the toughest assignments he’s ever faced, yet through one harrowing situation after another she continually impresses him with her strength and inner courage. Even though he fights his feelings for her, it’s a losing battle. And when the job is over, he doesn’t know how he’ll let her go.

Ignited shows Kaylea Cross at her best. She has created an engaging storyline  that grabs you right from the start with an intense, adrenaline-pumping opening that I literally could not put down. Both Hunter and Khalia are great, realistic protagonists grounded in their dedication to their joint mission.  I appreciate Cross’s attention to detail, and really developing the emotions and thoughts of the characters to bring them life.  Cross provides the POVs of not only Hunter and Khalia but also to the antagonists so you understand their motivation and fears regarding their involvement in this complex plot as it continues to unfold.  Each rising crisis gets more intense as the danger escalates and the outcome isn’t always pretty or safe.  This was an absorbing and deliciously thrilling read!

Sunday Series Spotlight: Bagram Special Ops by Kaylea Cross

This Sunday,  I’m featuring one of my favorite military romance series by Kaylea Cross: Bragram Special Ops.

I have read and loved the first two books, and I wanted to showcase the series since the third installment, Lethal Pursuit, was released this week.  

Deadly Descent (Bagram Special Ops # 1)

Deadly Descent

Published September 5, 2011

Purchase on Amazon: Deadly Descent

Devon Crawford is an officer; Air Force Pararescueman Cam Munro is enlisted. Dev flies medical evacuations; Cam jumps into danger zones to save lives. Dev wants to return home from Afghanistan with her heart untouched; Cam will do anything to win the woman he loves.

Reaching for happiness in a war zone is the last thing Captain Devon Crawford plans, but she can’t ignore the feelings she’s hidden for so long. Cam’s sexy charm and wicked kisses weaken her resistance, but she’s too afraid of losing him to give in. When Dev’s helicopter and crew are shot down and set up as bait by a notorious warlord, Cam risks all to save the team. What he doesn’t know is that the trap is set for him….

This is a great start to a series that focuses on a branch of the military that doesn’t get as much attention as it deserves: pararescuemen.  Cam is a swoonworthy  hero and his loyalty and love for Dev is wonderful!  A suspenseful read! Source: Purchased from Amazon

Tactical Strike (Bagram Special Ops #2)

Tactical Strike

Published March 11, 2013

Purchase on Amazon: Tactical Strike

Gunship pilot Captain Candace Bradford has worked long and hard to earn her rank and position within the male-dominated world of Air Force Special Operations. She’s not about to let anything or anyone jeopardize that, let alone one sinfully tempting man who seems determined to cause her nothing but trouble. Even if she’s starting to fall for him.

As an elite Combat Controller, Staff Sergeant Ryan Wentworth is used to overcoming adversity in order to complete a mission. Breaking through Candace’s prickly exterior and into her heart is a challenge he can’t let go. But just when he’s begun to gain her trust, they’re thrown together in the field facing an overwhelming enemy force. Candace and Ryan find themselves on the run, searching the skies for an emergency extraction. But one dangerous enemy has an agenda in mind and he’ll use whatever means necessary to achieve it, including using American forces to do his dirty work…..

This book picks up where Deadly Descent ends, and the sexual tension between Candace and Ryan sparks from the moment they first meet, even though Candace has zero interest in any type of relationship with Ryan. I loved watching their relationship evolve into a scorching hot romance that is smoothly integrated into the larger ongoing plot that started with the first book. Ryan is both swoon and drool worthy in the romantic hero category! Although I suppose you can read each book as a stand alone, I highly recommend starting at the beginning so you can fully appreciate the storyline and get to know the main characters much better.  An excellent read!

Lethal Pursuit (Bagram Special Ops #3)

Lethal Pursuit

Published September  16, 2013

Purchase on Amazon: Lethal Pursuit

Security Forces Lieutenant Maya Lopez is right at home in a war zone: she’s been fighting all her life. A hard-won commission in the air force has brought her to Afghanistan, and if she plays her cards right, she could end up with an FBI job. It won’t be easy, but that just makes her more determined.

Jackson Thatcher is a protector in all senses of the word. A pararescue jumper with Southern-boy charm, he easily captures Maya’s interest, but her trust is another story. He’s sexy, strong and caring, but she makes it clear she’s no damsel in distress. She’s never relied on any man, and she’s not about to start now. When Maya and Jackson become pawns in a radical warlord’s deadly game, they find themselves on the run and must depend on each other if they want to make it out alive.

I was so excited about this book, I puchased my copy on its release day, even though I know it will be awhile until I have a chance to read it. That’s okay. I’m content for now to just know I have my copy waiting close by, ready  to be devoured! Based on the quality of the romance, action, and suspense within the first two books, I have a feeling Lethal Pursuit will be an enthralling read!

If you like military romantic suspense and haven’t read Kaylea Cross’s work yet, I high recommend the series. I’ve read most of her books, and she is one of the best writers in this genre!  Her knowledge of military tactics, attention to details, and her ability to create  smexy heroes and heroines make her one of my favorite authors!
