It’s release day! Hidden Heat, book 4 of the Hauberk Protection series is now available. It’s an exploration of the hidden natures of Hauberk’s International Manager Troy and Sam and Chad’s assistant, Sandy. It’s another full-length (76,000 words) novel, and there are spots that are darker than any of my other books, including an exploration into the need for the BDSM realm’s SSC (Safe, Sane and Consensual) rule.

Be careful what you don’t wish for. Fate might snatch it away.
When handling Hauberk’s managers, efficiency is Sandy Hallquist’s watchword. In her personal life? Excitement all the way, baby. That’s why she escaped Minnesota—and her marriage-minded mother—for a job with one of the hottest bodyguard companies on the eastern seaboard. What more could she ask for than to be surrounded by all that alpha-male testosterone?
a story that is complete with lots of push and pull, sexual desire, and heat…a wild ride readers will relish ~ Shannon, The Romance Studio
In one moment of weakness, he allowed Sandy a glimpse behind his carefully crafted mask. The more he’s around her, the sharper his yearning for stability. A home. Love. Pity those are the last things she’s looking for. And revealing that she’s the one true thing in his life could be the very words that drive her away.
At the first whisper of the “L” word, Sandy’s first instinct is to hit the brakes. By the time Sandy admits to herself that Troy is more than a passing fancy, though, his next mission could take the decision out of her hands.
Product Warnings: This book contains sexcapades in secret clubs, voyeurism, a touch of bondage and risqué office shenanigans.
