Rescuing Sadie

Chase leaned heavily against the wall and simply watched Sadie. She was in his kitchen putting dishes away. She’d taken over as if she’d always lived there. She’d been a godsend, not only helping to take care of him after he’d gotten out of the hospital, but taking care of the everyday things that he couldn’t because of his injury.

He’d missed everything that happened after he’d passed out on the ground outside Fletch’s house.

The cops, firefighters, and EMTs had shown up en masse. They’d put the fire out fairly quickly, and surprisingly, the house wasn’t a complete loss. It would take a lot of work to make it livable again, but much of it could be salvaged.

Annie and Emily had run almost a mile to the neighbor’s house, Annie carrying her Army man the entire way, then insisted the neighbors bring them right back after they’d called for help.

Fletch had gone through surgery and was currently recovering, just as Chase was. Fletch’s liver had been nicked by the piece of wood and if it hadn’t been for Ghost’s constant pressure, he would’ve died out there in the grass.

Sean Taggart had suffered a pretty good gash on his head from hitting the steering wheel, but considering his old car didn’t have airbags, he was in remarkably good shape. The Scout was sturdy as hell and the frame had held up remarkably well under the circumstances. Unfortunately, although the car had held together well enough to save Sean’s life, the classic vehicle was toast.

Ian was supposed to arrive with Sean, but had gotten held up because he was wrapped up in a situation with one of the bodyguards from McKay-Taggart. That had actually turned out to be a good thing because the passenger side of Sean’s Scout had taken the brunt of the damage from the RPG.

Jonathan was most definitely dead. The Feds weren’t happy, as they had wanted to interrogate him, but Sean hadn’t hesitated to do what he’d needed to do to make sure his niece was safe from any future threat.

The fact that Jonathan had done what he had wasn’t exactly a surprise, but everyone was still wondering why. Chase thought he understood, after talking with Sadie, but it wasn’t his story to tell.

Jonathan had taken a few rocket-propelled grenades with him the last time he’d escaped from Bexar. He’d shot one into Fletch’s house, then a second just moments later, while Chase and the other men were passed out, which was the hit that separated them from the women. He’d used a third on Sean’s car—and no one had any doubt the man would’ve used the fourth RPG the cops had found hidden in the trees near Fletch’s house, if he’d had to.

Of course, the government was now trying to figure out where Jonathan’s father, Jeremiah Jones, had gotten the weapons in the first place. No one wanted that kind of firepower on the streets.

As for Sadie… She hadn’t left his side since he’d almost died on the operating table.

Release Date April 10, 2018


Sadie Jennings was used to being protected. As the niece of Sean Taggart, and the receptionist at McKay-Taggart Group, she was constantly surrounded by Alpha men more than capable, and willing, to lay down their life for her. But when she learns about a friend in trouble, she doesn’t hesitate to leave town without a word to her uncle to help. After several harrowing weeks, her friend is now safe, but the repercussions of her rash act linger on.

Chase Jackson, no stranger to dangerous situations as a captain in the US Army, has volunteered himself as Sadie’s bodyguard. He fell head over heels for the beautiful woman the first time he laid eyes on her. With a Delta Force team at his back, he reassures the Taggart’s that Sadie will be safe. But when her past catches up with her, Chase has to use everything he’s learned over his career to keep his promise…and to keep Sadie alive long enough to officially make her his.
