Is there room in one man’s heart for a warrior’s loyalty and a lover’s passion?
CRAZY FOR HER is here!
Although the official release date is September 1st, my publisher, Montlake Romance, chose CRAZY FOR HER as one of four titles for the August Kindle First. What this means is, if you are an Amazon Prime member, you can get it free, and if you’re not, you can buy it on sale for $1.99 throughout the month of August. On September 1st, the book will go to its regular price, and the print and audio will also be available.
I’m so excited about this. It feels like getting an early Christmas present, so let’s unwrap this baby and peek inside.
When his best friend and fellow Navy SEAL, Evan Prescott, died in his arms on the battlefield, Logan Kincaid gave his word to watch over Evan’s widow. But for two years he kept his distance…torn between honoring his solemn vow and succumbing to his secret love for his fallen comrade’s wife. But when Dani Prescott desperately reaches out to Logan for the help only he can give, he rushes to her side—determined to fight for her safety as fiercely as he fights against his own buried desire.
Someone claiming to be her husband is stalking Dani and her infant daughter, making them virtually prisoners in their remote country home. Logan’s elite military training and high-risk security expertise have outmatched more dangerous enemies. But the real challenge will be the burning temptation that threatens to overcome Logan whenever Dani is near…especially when she reveals her own hidden passion.
Just like that, Logan changed. His eyes slitted, viper like, and the muscles in his jaws flexed, forming hard lines below his cheeks. The mouth she’d earlier thought might feel soft to the touch thinned into a harsh slash of lips. The team had called him Iceman, and now she understood why. A shiver raced up her spine at seeing this side of him. This man was a warrior, a lethal one.
“He’s a dead man. Did you touch the note?”
Startled out of her musings about him, she tried to remember. When she’d first seen it, she hadn’t wanted to handle it at all. “I’m sure I didn’t touch the paper. I think just an arm, only long enough to put it in the box.”
His gaze lifted to hers, and she sucked in a breath at the savagery in his eyes. Her stalker didn’t have a clue who he was messing with. As Logan continued to regard her, his expression turned soft and warm. The little flutter in her stomach took her by surprise. As slowly as possible so he wouldn’t hear, she let out her breath.
“Is the phone call and the bear the only contact you’ve had with him?”
Jerked back to their conversation, she nodded. “He calls, but I don’t answer the phone now unless it’s a number I recognize. He doesn’t speak, just breathes into the phone for a minute or two before hanging up. I’ve not erased the recordings, but I don’t know what you can learn from them.”
“Have you called the police?”
“Of course, but other than writing up a report, they said there wasn’t much they could do. I don’t think they took the gift of a teddy bear all that serious.”
Logan stood and walked to the window, lifted the blinds, and peered out. The gun tucked against his back was bigger than hers, and she wanted it.
He dropped the blinds back into place and faced her. “We can’t discount he’s someone you know, although—”
“Believe me, I’d remember anyone who sounded like Evan.”
“Although, that’s why I think he’s a stranger, someone you’ve never had contact with.”
Just by his presence in her home, he gave her a feeling of safety, and with him by her side, she could get to the bottom of this. “So, where do we go from here?”
“I don’t go anywhere, but I want you and Regan to go stay at my house. Buchanan and Turner work for me now, and they’ll keep you safe while I run this asshole to the ground.”
Jumping up from the couch, she shook her head. “No, I’m not going to let some psycho run me out of my home. Besides, if he knows I’m gone, he’ll just disappear and wait for me to come back.”
“I can get you to Pensacola without him ever knowing you’ve left, and trust me, I will find him.”
She didn’t like the determined expression on his face, didn’t want to leave her home, hated feeling afraid, and didn’t want to leave him. The last thought came out of nowhere, adding confusion to the anger and fear she’d been living with the last two weeks. God, she hated feeling helpless. Stupid tears welled up and rolled down her cheeks, and the next thing she knew, his arms were around her.
“Hush,” he whispered. “I’ll keep you safe.”
Sniffling against a chest as hard as a wall of steel, she nodded and closed her eyes. He would protect her and Regan—all the more reason not to run away like a terrified mouse. Heat from his body seeped into her, warming her. Was it a betrayal to Evan to like being held in Logan’s embrace? No, it was only a friend comforting her, and her husband would have understood.
Logan put his hands on her shoulders and gently pushed her away. “Better?”
There was some emotion in his eyes, but it disappeared before she could decipher it. “I’m okay, but I’ll be better when all this is over. Thank you.”
“For coming here when I asked. It was probably an inconvenience to drop everything at a moment’s notice.”
Again, something flittered into his eyes, and he glanced away. When his gaze returned to her, whatever she’d seen was gone.
“Know this, Dani. Wherever you are and whenever you need me, I will always come to you.”
That had the sound of some sort of lifetime commitment and made her a little uneasy. Unsure how to respond, she just said, “Good, because I’m not leaving.”
