Do you know there are under the radar companies in the United States (probably everywhere) that provide security not only for private citizens and corporations but for the government as well? Think about it. There are things the government cannot do that nevertheless are a danger to this country if left untended. oft en security is needed or dangerous missions are required that must be off the books for the Central Intelligence Agency or the State Department. Who do they contact? Companies like Vigilance, a private agency located in the sleepy Florida beach town of Arrowhead Bay. All its agents are former military and are well-trained in everything it takes to be a Vigilance agent.

Why did I name the agency Vigilance? Because vigilance is defined as the action or state of keeping careful watch for possible danger or difficulties.

In March Book 2 in the Vigilance series, Without Warning, will release but it is already up for preorder. Grab a copy of Book #1, Hide and Seek, and preorder the next one.


Anything can happen when you let your guard down . . .

After receiving a violent threat on the heels of her father’s disappearance from the town of Arrowhead Bay, Devon Cole fears for her life—until Vigilance, a local private security agency, steps in to shield her from danger. Although she isn’t usually quick to surrender her freedom, she has no problem stripping her defenses for her new sexy bodyguard . . .

Tortured by the painful memory of lost love, Logan Malik is determined not to fall for a client again. So when he’s tasked with watching over Devon day and night, he’s focused on doing his job. Day is no problem, but as tensions rise at night, nothing can protect them from giving in to unbridled passion . . .







Avery gave her a studied look. “I think if we get some coffee into you it might settle your nerves. Although I have to say, you’ve done a damn good job of not showing them.”

Coffee. That sounded wonderful. She would kill for a cup right about now.

Clanking sounds echoed in the air and when she looked over she saw the driver hooking up her vehicle. She’d have to make some kind of arrangements for a rental to use until it was fixed. She’d ask the March sisters who in town handled that. Someone would have to give her a ride back to the house, too, but right now Logan and the sisters were huddled in discussion. She wondered what on earth that was all about.

More clanging and grinding from the tow truck got everyone’s attention.

“I’ve got ‘er all hooked up,” the driver called out, “and I’m ready to leave. I’ve got your cell number, Miss Cole. I’ll call you when the mechanic assesses the damage.”

“Thank you. Listen, where can I rent a car in this town?”

She couldn’t be without wheels. Right now she’d get one of them to give her a ride back to the house, and she’d make a call and take care of it. She pushed herself out of the truck, then had to lean against the open door, surprised to find she was lightheaded and unsteady on her feet.

Avery was next to her in a hurry, reaching out to steady her. “You’re okay. Take a breath. Delayed shock, and probably adrenaline crash.”

“That’s what Logan said before. Holy Hannah!” She put a hand to her forehead.

Avery looked her over to make sure she was steady on her feet. “What’s up?”

“I need a ride back to the house.”

“Devyn, you can’t go back to that house alone.” Avery looked at her sister. “Right, Sheri?”

“Absolutely. Until we know what the hell is going on with your father, it isn’t safe for you to be there alone. Those guys from today aren’t finished with you.”

She’d been afraid of that. “So what am I supposed to do?”

“I’ll stay with her.” Logan’s deep voice startled her.

Devyn stared at him. “What?”

He grinned. “Looks like you need a bodyguard. That’s part of my job.”

“B-But I can’t pay you,” Devyn protested.

“Did I say anything about money?” He glanced over at Avery. “I just finished a job and I have nothing up on the books right now. This okay with you?”

Avery shrugged. “Hey, it’s your time. And I agree she needs protection. God knows who else is out there waiting for her. And let’s not forget the reporters hanging around.”

“I-I don’t know what to say.” Devyn was independent but she wasn’t stupid.

Logan’s mouth curved in that killer smile again. “Say ‘Thank you, Logan. I’d love to have you stay at my house with me.’”

A little shiver of anticipation raced along her spine, making her wonder if she’d truly lost her mind. She needed to focus on something besides how sexy her new bodyguard was. But then she thought about what had brought her to this point. The chill that raced over her had nothing to do with sexual awareness and everything to do with fear.
