After losing his wife and child years ago, Tyson feels he's ready to get on with his life. But, when his wife's best friend casually mentions she has a stalker, he initially agrees to help her out of lingering loyalty to his late wife. He quickly realizes that being at Kai's side, any way he can get there, seems more right than anything else has in too long. Even before Tyson married her best friend, Kai had found herself absolutely smitten with him. Unfortunately, from the moment her best friend laid eyes on him, the two were like a lock and key. Kai is in charge of leading a demonstration at Legendary Securities for a new training program her company has developed. With Tyson as part of the trainee group, she's right back where she started with him. Maybe her life has changed drastically, but her heart has always been available to him. Admitting she has a problem she might not be able to handle on her own isn't easy for a badass like Kai. But she can't downplay her own personal stalker for long, not with someone like Tyson. As the two delve deeper into her troubles--and mutual feelings for each other--complications multiply into something fatal.

When former Navy SEAL Liam O'Brian joins Legendary Securities, he looks forward to being shipped somewhere exciting for his first mission with Levi and his crew. Instead, he learns exotic and enormous aren't exactly synonymous when he stumbles upon the oversized pachyderms inhabiting his new backyard. Still, conflicts are universal and Liam's troubles are only just beginning once he finds himself falling for a woman deeply rooted in her family's livelihood and problems. Go-getter Lilianna Howell is a biologist who believes all problems can be reduced to minor ones if only they're nipped in the bud early enough. When her dad can no longer deal with the loss of his son and his detachment threatens the elephant reserve, Lilianna steps into a much larger role, handling the marketing and fundraising. Being close to her sister and her husband--once Lilianna's fiancé--forces her to struggle with distrust from that past experience and a growing attachment to a man who appears in her life like a dream come true. Mammoth issues escalate as Liam and Lilianna team up to save the gentle giants, their newfound love… and their own lives.

Reconnect with unforgettable secondary characters from SEALs of Honor in a brand-new spin-off series. Previously Levi and his team were caught unaware by a cartel in Mexico and suffered the consequences of betrayal. That event drove Levi to establish his own company, Legendary Securities, on property inherited from a reclusive uncle. In the pursuit of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, he employs former SEALs he trusts implicitly to work with him on dangerous, covert private missions. This Heroes for Hire Set includes; Rhodes’ Reward Flynn’s Firecracker Logan’s Light RHODE’S REWARD Second chances do happen… Even amid evil... Rhodes knew Sienna years ago. When she’d been young and gawky, more elbow and carrot hair than style, but she’d had something special even then. Now she’s all grown. But she’s a trouble magnet, and even at the compound it finds her… Sienna had a super-sized crush on her brother’s best friend years ago. Now he’s hunky and even hotter than she could have imagined. Only she’s new and doesn’t want to jeopardize her position. When asked to help out on a job, she agrees…and triggers a sequence of disastrous events no one could foresee. But someone will stop at nothing to silence everyone involved, especially the two of them… FLYNN’S FIRECRACKER Some jobs are more pleasant than others… Flynn agrees to do a security job for Levi as a trial run for more work. Looking after Anna and her animal shelter is a breeze. Trouble free. Until he leaves… Having Flynn around was both good and bad. To have the help at the shelter was huge, but they drew sparks just being around each other. She tells herself she’s relieved when he’s gone but when a dead man shows up, she’d do anything to have him back. Someone is after Flynn… and he doesn’t care who he kills in the process… LOGAN’S LIGHT Logan heads to Boston on an intel mission. His investigation plunges him and his partner into the deep dark world of human trafficking. The last thing Alina remembers is having coffee at the cafe in the hospital where she works. She awakes tied up in a strange apartment. Her world as she knew it gone…possibly forever. Now they're on the run together. Time is against them. There's a quota to be made, and the traffickers aren't going to let Alina go if they can help it. Unfortunately, she's not the only victim. The hunt is on…for the traffickers and their other victims…before it's too late.

Rory is an animal lover. In his mind, any veterinarian who does as much pro bono work as Louise, the local vet, deserves his help when she gets into trouble... Louise works long hours at her own veterinarian clinic. When she receives an unexpected delivery one day, complete with a dead deliveryman, a domino-series of events puts her and her clinic full of precious animals in danger. Rory is the first to volunteer to keep her safe. Professional reasons quickly become personal. Louise is everything he's ever wanted and never expected to find in a single woman. He's looking forward to a future together, and the only way to ensure that is to stop whatever's endangering her and her animals. Unfortunately, the killer isn't leaving a witness to his crimes. At first, Rory and the team at Legendary Securities make headway in discovering what's going on, but the tables turn in an instant and, for the first time since he joined the team, Rory's vision of a satisfactory resolution--and happily-ever-after--may not be in the cards.

Logan heads to Boston on an intelligence reconnaissance mission for Legendary Securities. His investigation plunges him--and the inadvertent partner he picks up along the way--into the dark, chilling world of human trafficking. The last thing Alina remembers was having coffee at the hospital cafe where she's employed. Awakening in a strange apartment, she finds herself tied up. Until Logan appeared, seemingly out of nowhere, and rescued her, she'd feared life as she'd known it was over. The traffickers have a quota and letting even one potential moneymaker go isn't in the cards. Alina is far from the only victim. On the run together, Logan and Alina race against time, no longer certain who's the hunted and who's the prey in the sordid, heartbreaking underworld they've descended into.

The sacred formulas here given are selected from a collection of about six hundred, obtained on the Cherokee reservation in North Carolina in 1887 and 1888, and covering every subject pertaining to the daily life and thought of the Indian, including medicine, love, hunting, fishing, war, self-protection, destruction of enemies, witchcraft, the crops, the council, the ball play, etc., and, in fact, embodying almost the whole of the ancient religion of the Cherokees. The original manuscripts, now in the possession of the Bureau of Ethnology, were written by the shamans of the tribe, for their own use, in the Cherokee characters invented by Sikw�ya (Sequoyah) in 1821, and were obtained, with the explanations, either from the writers themselves or from their surviving relatives.

"Major Jim Gant, a man seen by many of us as the 'perfect insurgent,'--an inspiring, gifted, courageous leader... -- GENERAL DAVID H. PETRAEUS (U.S. Army, Ret.) THE PAPER THAT ROCKED OSAMA BIN LADEN Team members during the May 2, 2011 U.S. military raid that killed Osama Bin Laden seized piles of Al Qaeda intelligence. One piece of evidence found in Bin Laden's personal sleeping quarters was an English language copy of Jim Gant's One Tribe at a Time. It contained notes in the margins consistent with others identified as written by Osama Bin Laden. A directive from Osama Bin Laden to his intelligence chief was also discovered. It identified Jim Gant by name as an impediment to Al Qaeda's operational objectives for eastern Afghanistan. Bin Laden ordered that Gant be assassinated. "[One Tribe at a Time] was hugely important...at a time when I was looking for ideas on Afghanistan...[Gant] was the first to write it down, in a very coherent fashion, very readable, very encouraging frankly...and there is enormous power in that." --General David H. Petraeus (U.S. Army, Ret.) quoted in American Spartan: The Promise, The Mission, and The Betrayal of Special Forces Major Jim Gant by Ann Scott Tyson Washington Post reporter Ann Scott Tyson read "One Tribe at a Time," and - informed by her combat experience in Afghanistan and Iraq and her eight years as a reporter in China - she realized that Jim's paper made sense. She decided to write a story about Jim entitled, "Jim Gant, the Green Beret who could win the war in Afghanistan." After the article appeared in January 2010, as Jim was in Washington, D.C., attending Pashto language training, he met Ann and the two fell in love. She followed his mission in Afghanistan and wrote AMERICAN SPARTAN: The Promise, the Mission, and the Betrayal of Special Forces Major Jim Gant.

After an operation gone wrong that laid him low, Levi's obsession to find the men who betrayed him has grown to the point where nothing else seems to matter to him anymore. Although he's physically recovered from his injuries and has started his own company, Legendary Securities, when he catches the scent of the last man on his most-wanted list, he becomes a missile locked on his target. The very man he's hunting is hunting him as well…and fully intends to finish the job he started by taking Levi out once and for all. For every step of Levi's journey toward rebuilding his life, Ice has been there for him. The places where she can't join him--where he won't allow her inside--are the hardest ones to reconcile because she knows their relationship has reached an impasse. One wrong word, one false step may mean the last kiss for them…and ultimately the end of the road for all her hopes and dreams. Just as Levi has been at a standstill, waiting to get his final revenge, Ice can't resolve the heart of her conflicts until the monster that nearly destroyed their world is brought down for good.

Hardened Navy SEAL Michael Stanton walked away from his career a year ago and never had any intention of returning. But when his former commander calls with the bad news that an old friend of his was murdered while undercover, Michael can't say no to helping track down the culprit. Aware that the next dead body might be his own, Michael agrees to take his deceased friend’s place at the home of a terrorist. His official mission: Find all he can to bring this crook's operation down. His personal mission: Find out who murdered his friend and return the favor. Mercy's sister was employed as a maid at the terrorist's home. When her sister disappeared, the police couldn't find any leads about where she might have gone or what happened to her.

Michael and Mercy meet up inside the terrorist's house, where suspicions--and passions--flare instantly between them. Neither of them are what they're posing to be, but can they find a way to work together to uncover the truth they both need to know? Or will the terrorist get wind of traitors in his home and take care of them before they can take care of him?
