Book 2 of the Cancun Series
by KaLyn Cooper
In Cancun for a wedding is the perfect cover for Josh Madden, retired SEAL and new the Director of Anti-Terrorism at Homeland Security. Intel believes Mexican human traffickers are smuggling terrorists into the USA on cruise ships. What he really wants to uncover are the repressed desires of the groom’s sister.
The discoveries Lilly made about herself after her recent divorce solidified her resolve to never allow a man to mold her into the woman he wants her to be. Focused on raising her two young boys, launching her family’s fledgling cruise line and rebuilding her self-esteem, she’s tempted when her brother’s former boss offers to make her bedroom fantasies come true.
When their worlds collide, Lilly needs a super hero. Will Josh choose the mission over a woman in trouble?
Josh moved into her path.
Mumbling, head down, Lilly ran straight into his chest…and froze. When she looked up, her eyes were wide, shocked to see him.
Priceless. And so beautiful with the moon splashing light her high Mayan cheeks and eyes as dark as the sky above, glinting with the reflection of stars.
“You heard me?” Her voice was quiet.
“Yes, And your conversation with your ex. Hard to miss since you were in my arms.”
Lilly dropped her forehead to his shoulder and buried her face. “I’m sorry you had to hear all that.”
“I’m not. Your ex is an emotionally abusive ass, and you should be happy to be free of him.” Josh picked up her chin and brushed his lips over hers. “But I think you and I are looking for the same thing. I don’t do long term, and you already know I’m temporary, just what you’re looking for.”
Josh leaned in, his lips right next to her ear, his hands in constant but slow motion. “Tell me what you want, Lilly. I’m very good at taking orders.”
Gradually she turned her head so her warm moist lips were right next to his ear. “I want…” There was a long pause before she sighed. “I’m just not sure.” The insecurity in her voice snapped his resolve. He had to respect her wishes and would never force any woman to do anything she didn’t want to do. She wasn’t ready. At least not tonight.
Josh brushed his thumbs over her freckled cheeks. “A few nights of pleasure…any way you want it…are yours.”

Christmas in Cancun
Busy building a new career with his catamaran company, former SEAL Jack Girard had all but forgotten about his grandfather’s quest to find the golden Mayan goddess statues. Then, his brother’s beautiful widow, Jillian, and adorable daughter, Addison, arrive in Cancun with the research materials. His need to complete the family mission is almost as strong as his desire for Jillian. Between raising her daughter alone and finishing her doctorate in Mayan anthropology, Jillian doesn’t have time for a man in her life. Although, after mourning her husband’s murder for two years, she’s ready for a man her bed. An underwater Virgin Mary statue and centuries-old manuscripts lead the two of them through the Mayan Riviera and directly into danger. During steamy Caribbean nights together, will they develop the ability to move on and discover the real treasure isn’t gold?
Conquered in Cancun
After a deployment romance that ended disastrously, Lieutenant Commander Caroline Hodges vows never trust another man. Joining her roommates for some fun in the Cancun sun, she runs into the lover who had dumped her in Navy flight school. A temporary, vacation fling may be perfect solution to her wounded heart.
Luke Thorstad had been thrown into the limelight, and the arms of dozens of willing women, in flight school when he’d become an unintentional hero. His biggest regret, ever, was leaving Caroline Hodges in the shadows. Finding her in a Cancun night club was his chance at redemption, and maybe the future they’d been denied years ago. But he’ll have to break down the walls she’s built around her heart.
Claimed by a SEAL
Three years ago, Stacie Vandercoy was stuck undercover in Iraq for six months with Jeff “Rock Star” Lennon, the arrogant SEAL who thought he was God’s gift to women. But he couldn’t have her. Fraternization is against the rules. And still is as they infiltrate home-grown terrorism in Norfolk, Virginia. Can she continue to resist him? Does she have to?
Jeff Lennon had been forced to do things he didn’t like as a Navy SEAL, and now as an agent for the terrorist division of Homeland Security’s Border Patrol. For years, his only real regret has been what he couldn’t to do to Stacie back in Iraq. He’s been given another chance to claim her heart, body and soul. In the meantime, they have to stop a terrorist attack somewhere in the Norfolk area, during Fleet Week.
Even the agency’s psychologist isn’t sure Stacie can pull off pretending to be Jeff’s wife. What lengths will Stacie and Jeff go to assure the mission’s success? And what will they both lose in the process?
