This high-concept series brings together the glamour of Park Avenue and hot Navy SEALs in dark, smoldering contemporary romances.

The Tate Brothers were once orphans and they have been raised to do one thing only: protect what is theirs.

As a trained sniper and Navy SEAL, Lucas Tate found the courage to distance himself from the wealthy, wicked patriarch who adopted him. Instead, he's devoted his life to the elite band of brothers from his unit. So when the widow of one of his former comrades finds herself in apparent danger, Lucas makes it his job to protect her against all enemies. . .and not let her out of his sights.

Grace Riley feels overwhelmed by Lucas's presence, but the cold-eyed marksman will do anything to keep her safe. Soon the special attention he pays her becomes a wild romantic distraction--one that troubles Grace, since Lucas was so close to her deceased husband. Still, how can she resist Lucas's intense, ice-blue stare? All she knows is that a life without strong, passionate Lucas is one not worth living. Can Lucas can find a way to honor his former brother-in-arms by saving Grace. . .and loving her, too?

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Ashenden's second Tate Brothers military contemporary is an intoxicating, fast-paced romantic thriller with potent sexual tension. Stoic billionaire Navy SEAL Lucas Tate avoids civilian drama and anyone who causes it, which is why he's perturbed when a letter left by his deceased father drops him into the middle of some. The letter asks Lucas to protect his friend's widow, Grace Riley, from arms dealers her husband was involved with. When Lucas brings headstrong artist Grace back to his ultrasecure New York home and then instructs her not to leave-for her own protection-a battle of wits ensues, which soon turns into deep and meaningful conversation. Gradually, Lucas and Grace succumb to their mutual desire. Lucas plans to return to base once the threat to Grace is eliminated, so neither expects their dalliance to give rise to romance, and both lovers are carrying loads of guilt that leave them feeling unworthy of true happiness, but together they learn that the past does not define them. The action neatly melds into the love story without stunting the relationship development. Ashenden has created an exceptional romance with a fresh plot, complex characters, and a mind-blowing ending. Agent: Helen Breitwieser, Cornerstone Literary. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
