Raylan Wild lived up to his last name. He spent his youth sowing his oats and living life for the moment. Then he met Amber and after one incredible night, Raylan was ready to give up his wild ways. But then a call from his ex turned his world upside down. Raylan sacrificed his tender new feelings and left town to raise a son he'd never even known existed.

All the while, dreams of a beautiful brown haired girl haunted his dreams.

Amber Atkins had given everything to Raylan. Her virginity and her soul. Convinced she could tame the notorious bad boy, she was devastated when he left without a word.
Now six years later, Raylan has returned to Mercy to convince Amber that they can't live without each other. But can Amber find the strength to trust again?

As a stalker grows bolder, Amber's life is in danger and she's forced to turn to one man for help - Raylan Wilde. In order to survive, she must trust the man that nearly destroyed her with her body and soul.
***This is a stand-alone loves story. It is book 5 in the Men of Mercy series.***
Author Interview:

Q: You write Military Romantic Suspense, and though it seems like the Navy SEAL romance books are the most popular, even Black Operations. So why did you choose Special Forces?

A: My husband is active Army and a veteran. The top tier of the Navy is the SEAL Teams. The top tier of the Army is the Special Forces.
I think the SF deserves just as much recognition as the SEALs... they are like the Ghostwalkers of the Army.
Plus- I don't know jack about swimming.

Q: You based your military romance series on a Special Forces team - Task Force Scorpion. Why did you also decide to put them in a small town setting?

A: Just because you come from a small town, doesn't mean you can't be hard core. I grew up in a small town. The men there can be bad boy alpha males just as easily as the men from big cities

Plus, I grew up reading small town romance. I think readers love the feeling of belonging to a community, getting to know all the quirky folks who live there and falling in love with not only the hero but also their friends and family.

Q: You're books are often about second chances - big secrets. Why?

A: Who doesn't root for a hero dying for a second chance? Yes, he probably screwed up big time in the past, but how much sweeter is the love between the hero and heroine when they show forgiveness?

As far as big secrets - they're just fun. Secret babies, corrupt politicians, love triangles...

Believe me - it ALL happens in a small town romance and real life.

Q: Why write Military Romance?

First off, I am kin to and am friends with a lot of military men, and they're all sweet and well mannered and love their country. But a lot of them are badass, too. Which is what we want when someone's fighting for our country - :-) - and in a hot romantic suspense : A fearless bad boy alpha male who fights for his country and his woman.
