Whit Baker was itching to get back into the field after a mission gone wrong. The security expert wasn’t a fan of pushing papers behind a desk, and he wasn’t looking forward to the vacation time his boss forced on him. But his trip back home put him in the right place at the right time to save a gorgeous wildlife photographer. With as much experience as Victoria Ashe had in the wilderness, she never expected to need a search-and-rescue team. But she also never thought she’d be hunted by a bunch of bad guys who were after the cargo from a crashed plane. Luckily, Whit knew what the real treasure was—her.
Everyone has a war story to tell. A jaded cop struggling to come to terms with her past falls for an idealistic former Marine-turned-cat rescuer on the crime-infested streets of West Baltimore. Hope Kennedy is a cynical Baltimore cop. Her beat is the Mondawmin area of West Baltimore—the most dangerous neighborhood in America’s most dangerous city. And she’s struggling—unsuccessfully—to overcome a terrible event that has come to shape her life. Hope’s become angry and bitter. She’s spiraling out of control. Hope has lost hope. Luke Matthews is a decorated Marine Corps combat veteran. He received the Purple Heart for a wound inflicted in Afghanistan. Now, he works as a carpenter for a nonprofit that builds homes for disabled vets. In his spare time, he volunteers with a local cat rescue. But Luke’s battling his own demons. He’s haunted by the war. Specifically, by a fog of war experience—a tragic accident—that has left him racked with guilt. When Hope and Luke meet in a dingy alley, it’s anything but love at first sight. But a near-fatal accident a week later forges a bond. Eventually, in the middle of a cold Baltimore winter, a romance heats up. Little-by-little, Hope and Luke help one another feel alive again. But Hope doesn’t know how to process her past, a past that is now jeopardizing her future. And as she and Luke get closer, she questions whether she’s worthy of love. Can two wounded, badly bruised, purple hearts come together and help one another heal?
I stole her soul… now I will fill her womb. The leaders of Solgad call me a rebel. They banished my tribe to the drought-cracked plains, denying me what is mine by right—the title of warlord and a place among those who wield power. But not much longer. To save those under my protection, I steal an Earth woman away from her betrothed. With a sting of my tailclaw between her ribs, I force a soulbond on Ceangal, ruining her for all males to come. Once I put my child in her belly, her influential father has no choice but to support my claim. With my tribe at the brink of collapse, the female’s reluctance toward me means nothing. I stole her soul, yes, but she will surrender her body. Come her next heat, she will beg me to fill her with what only I can give. It may save my tribe. Or destroy us both.
Lonely mafia princess with too many daddy issues seeking nice guy next door. Yeah right. Not even in my wildest dreams could I live the fantasy small-town life.

But right now, I’m more worried about all the dark, dirty promises my brute pirate whispers he’ll do to me once he has me on his boat. He says if I try to run, he’ll hunt me down because I’m payment for sins against his family, his captive. And I fear, his utter obsession. And I know he’ll stop at nothing until I’m his in every way.
