✾ Synopsis ✾


I stood by my brothers in the Marines and fought for my country. I gave my blood, sweat and flesh so that others could have a taste of freedom.

But my wife wasn't free.

She'd been hunted, stalked, and forced to keep a secret no one should have to live with. I'd made her a promise. Her freedom, my rules, no questions asked. I thought I'd kept my promise but I made a mistake — a rookie mistake.

Now I was going to finish what I started. I was done playing games with the killer who'd murdered my wife's parents and tracked her for sport. If he thought he was safe in a jail cell, he was wrong. No one puts out a hit on my wife and survives.

This ends now. I protect what's mine... at whatever cost.

IMPOSSIBLE END is the conclusion to the Unchecked Series. This novella is from Blaze's point of view and is not a stand alone. To get the full story, please read the first two books in the series, IMPOSSIBLE PROMISE and IMPOSSIBLE CHOICE.

✿ Excerpt ✿

I put my mouth against her throat and whispered, "Do you know what you feel like?"

"No," she rasped.

"Like everything I've ever wanted."

Her body stilled, her eyes opened and I released my tight grip in her hair as she brought her head up.

"Blaze," she breathed, staring into my soul.

"Everything," I repeated.

Her hand landed on my heart. "I love you."

"I know." Every part of her body changed when she looked at me. Her shoulders lifted, her back went straight, her eyes turned to liquid heat and her pulse raced. I knew how she felt about me.

She pushed her fingers into my hair. "I'll still always tell you."

"I know." She needed the words. I didn't. I didn't throw out words when I had actions.

Her forehead creased and her hands stilled. "What if I never told you again?"

"It would change nothing."

She turned her head and dropped her arms.

I grabbed her chin and brought her back to me. I'd been waiting for this to come up. I never told her I loved her in response to her telling me. It cheapened it. "But I would miss it," I said honestly.

"Would you?" It wasn't a question. It was an accusation.


"I miss it."

"How many other women have I come inside?" I asked calmly.

The color drained from her face.

"How many?" I demanded.

She swallowed.

"You know this," I reminded her. "Answer me."

"None," she whispered.

I dropped my Marine face. "You don't need the words," I slowly annunciated, letting her see the man I was, not the warrior I'd been trained to be.

Her eyes welled with unshed tears.

Then I gave her the fierce truth that meant more to me than any three words. "I would die for you."

✿ The Series ✿

Impossible Promise
Unchecked #1

✾ Synopsis ✾

Three years ago, Layna Blair listened in horror over a telephone line as her parents were murdered. When the killer said she was next, Layna panicked and made a deadly deal — his secret in exchange for her life. She's paid the price every day since, becoming a prisoner in plain sight.

Marine Sergeant Blaze Johnson offers Layna a way out — her freedom, his rules, no questions asked — and she takes it, despite knowing what her keepers do to people who get too close. She doesn't know Blaze is fighting his own demons or that beneath his warrior façade is a man on the verge of breaking.

Embarking on a wild revenge mission with Blaze and his smooth-talking best friend, Talon, is not what Layna signed on for. But attempting to run when Blaze has made no secret he intends to make her his is a reckless mistake. With the killer closing in, it's up to Blaze to save them all — and to Layna to realize that she's risked the one thing she can't afford to lose.

✾ Synopsis ✾

Book two of Unchecked

After her parents were murdered, Layna Blair spent three years on the run — until Marine Sergeant Blaze Johnson stepped in and saved her. With him, Layna knew safety for the first time... but two weeks after shipping out for another tour in Afghanistan, Blaze comes home early.

When Layna sees the jagged wounds covering his body, every truth she thought she knew is destroyed. Blaze is distant and angry and though her heart is shattered, Layna desperately tries to keep their relationship together in the face of another tragedy. When the tenuous bonds holding them together are ripped apart by a revenge-hungry maniac, Layna must trust her survival instinct and bury her past for good.

But the enemy is two steps ahead, and before she can take action, Layna's hand is forced by his deadly demands — save herself or save the man who risked his life for her freedom. Blaze saved her once. This time it's her turn to protect him.

✿ The Author ✿

I grew up in Northern California with my head in a book and my feet in the sand. I dreamt of becoming a painter but the heady scent of libraries with their shelves full of books drew me into the world of storytelling. I love the New Adult genre, but really, any story about a love so desperately wrong and impossibly beautiful makes me swoon.

I now live in Southern Florida and while I don't get to read as much as I like, I still bury my toes in the sand. If I'm not writing or fighting to contain the banana plantation in my backyard, you can find me spending time with my handsomely tattooed husband, my brilliantly practical son and a mischievous miniature boxer...

But Seriously?

Here are ten things you really want to know about me.

I grew up a faculty brat. I can swear like a sailor. I love men in uniform. I hate being told what to do. I can do your taxes (but don't ask). The Bird Market in Hong Kong freaks me out. My favorite word is desperate... or dirty, or both — I can't decide. I have a thing for muscle cars. But never reply on me for driving directions, ever. And I have a new book boyfriend every week — don't tell my husband.
