Series: Owens Protective Services Book 4
Author: Giulia Lagomarsino
Genre: Protector/Alpha Romance
Release Date: November 28, 2022
Cover Design: T.E. Black Designs
Model: Guy Higgins
I am the shadow that moves in the night, the one that has you constantly looking over your shoulder.
I work within the bounds of the law when it suits me, but make one wrong move and I’ll throw the rule book out the window to end you.
My job requires a certain level of deception, an ability to put aside feelings and relationships to get the job done.
I can honestly say there’s not a single person alive I wouldn’t betray for the right reasons.
It’s who I am and I can’t change.
I won’t.
But there’s one woman that threatens to break me.
I knew it the moment I met her four years ago. So young and naive, it’s easy to see how a woman like her could fall for a man like me.
She doesn’t see through the lies and manipulations.
She thinks she knows the man I am, but she only sees what I allow.
I’ve done everything in my power to keep her safe from me, but now I have to do something that could nearly gut me.
I have to betray her.
I know she’ll never forgive me, but this isn’t just about the job.
Someone’s life is at stake, and unfortunately for her, his life is one I can’t allow to slip away.
She’ll never forgive me—that’s if she lives.
And I’ll never forgive myself.
But these defining moments in life are what make us who we are.
I know I’ll always be the man that will get the job done.
No matter the cost.

“Thumper, down!” I shouted, just as I fired a round into his bionic foot, forcing him to his knees as he narrowly avoided a bullet to the head.

“What the fuck? Did you just shoot me, boss?”

“It was your foot or your head,” I retorted, returning my gaze to the tangos still in the building.

“You’re paying for my new foot,” he grumbled, hobbling over to join the rest of his team.

“Send me the bill,” I muttered, already focusing on the remaining tangos.

“Eli, how many more kids need evac?”

The Ditty Boppers had been tasked with slipping in through the basement window and freeing the kids inside. We didn’t have an exact number when we started this mission, so we couldn’t be certain we had all the manpower or transportation needed.

“Boss, we’ve got a problem,” his voice rang through comms. “We’ve got about twenty that require medevac ASAP.”

“Negative. There aren’t enough birds in the sky.” I switched targets, firing again as I laid out the next part of the plan. “Fox, you copy?”

“You got someone for me to kill, boss?” he said cheerily.

“Move to extraction point B. Kid gloves, Fox.”

“Boss,” he groaned.

“Dash, take control. Rae, make sure Fox doesn’t fuck this up.”

She sighed heavily as I heard her on the move. “When is that not my job?”

I grinned and moved to the next target. I couldn’t see Jack anymore, or the rest of his team. With any luck, they made it out of the building and were aiding in the rescue of the kids.

“Boss, we’ve got movement to the south headed your way.”

“How far out?”

“Two minutes. Coming in hot, boss.”

“Do you have the shot?”

“Negative. Too much tree cover.”

I shifted to my next target and took aim. “And you didn’t see them? Were you too busy vomiting?”

“I told you I don’t like flying,” he snapped. “I would move if I were you.”

“One more minute,” I said, scoping out my next target. 

“Boss, you really need to—”

But I tuned him out and returned my attention to the remaining tangos still threatening to destroy our operation. One by one, I picked them off, missing one by just an inch and alerting him to my location. He quickly ducked and ran for cover, hiding just a few feet from the entrance to the basement. If he made it down there, my men might be injured, along with those kids. Men did stupid shit when they were cornered.

“Boss!” Scottie was yelling in my ear, but I ignored him and kept my focus. 

“Come on, you fucker,” I whispered, eyeing the man in my scope. I needed him to move just a little to the right. 

“Thirty seconds!” Scottie warned.

The man moved and I took the shot, sending the bullet right through his skull. I watched as his head snapped back and he crumpled to the ground. Removing Sally 2 from my stand, I shoved my rifle in my bag and tossed it over my shoulder, abandoning the stand to whoever came through here. Taking off through the trees, I hauled ass toward the extraction point, but quickly realized I was already too late. 

The tangos on my ass were closing in quick, and heading to the extraction point would only put more lives in danger. I made a snap decision and bolted to the left, making sure to leave an obvious path in my wake. Making enough noise to raise the dead, I grinned when I heard them following.

“Lock, I’ve got tangos on my ass. I’m leading them away. It should buy you enough time to get out.”

“Negative, boss. We’ve got too many injured.”

“How much time do you need?”

“Boss, I don’t like where you’re going with this.”

As I ran through the trees, I knew it didn’t really matter if he liked it or not. I had boxed myself in, and there was no way I was getting out of this on my own. But I could lay down fire and draw their attention from what was going on at the warehouse.

“I’ll distract them. When you’re out, I’ll haul ass to the third extraction point.”

“You’ll never make it there,” he warned.

I grinned, even though he couldn’t see. “Watch me.”

 
I’m a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, “No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book.” I didn’t think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn’t already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven’t been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.

Blurb:
Max ~

 

As an elite tracker, Max Sheridan’s job is to find people who don’t want to be found. He’s the one who hunts them down and brings them to justice.

 

What he doesn’t do is bodyguard work. He’s always made it clear he never wanted to be a glorified babysitter, but after meeting with his sister’s best friend, he knows she needs KSI.

 

Shayna ~

 

Television star Shayna Moore has fallen victim to a stalker. While Max would rather saddle one of the other team members with the job, he knows the threat to her is real, so he grudgingly accepts.

 

However, things take an unexpected turn and Max finds himself falling for Shayna while posing as her fake boyfriend. Now, he needs to convince her that this thing between them is real and worth fighting for.

 

But one question remains…

Can Max keep Shayna safe from a stalker who’s not only trying to end her career but her life as well?

So who am I?

Well, I’m the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tell me to stop watching them, but who doesn’t love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.

Now, I live in a small town in West Virginia where I entertain my niece and nephew and watch the cats get teased by the birds and laugh myself silly when they swoop down and then dive back up just out of reach. The cats start yelling something fierce…lol.

I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.

Blurb:
Gabe

Gabriel Knorlin has spent his life protecting himself from the kind of pain no one should ever have to endure. The tragedy he survived sculpted every decision he ever made.

 

The one decision he regretted? Abagail Crawford—a woman he calls family, but one he’s kept at arm’s length. He can’t live through the pain of losing someone he loves again.

 

Only fate has kicked him in the balls and placed Abbey squarely in his lap. His only goal is to protect her from the Los Muertos cartel.

 

Her own insistence on getting herself killed aside, he’s afraid he’ll give in to his desires and it’ll cost him the only family he has.

 

Abbey

Assistant ADA Abagail Crawford finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation. A colleague was killed, and Abbey’s been given his investigation into a drug cartel and now his murder. She’s not equipped to handle it. Her specialty is white collar crime, but fake it ‘til you make it, right?

 

Her brother, of course, insists on Gabe being her bodyguard until the investigation and trial are over. Considering what happened to her predecessor, she can’t argue with him.

 

There is a problem, however.

 

She’s loved Gabe since she was twelve years old. When she confessed her feelings for him, he sister-zoned her in the most embarrassing and hurtful way. She’s avoided him like the plague ever since.

 

But now, she can’t escape the attraction. She discovers the man has feelings for her, and it’s up to her to figure out why he’s so afraid.

 

Hopefully, she can get the guy before they both end up on the receiving end of a bullet. She just has to convince one very reluctant, stubborn man they’re worth fighting for.

So who am I?

Well, I’m the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tell me to stop watching them, but who doesn’t love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem.

STAY FROSTY is defined as: Keep your emotions under control.

Jayden ‘Jedi’ Evans is the youngest Navy SEAL to make DEVGRU / SEAL Team 6 / Tier One in over a decade. The benefits far outweigh the disadvantages on most fronts, but not where his love life is concerned. Girls his age are immature brats. They have no respect for the dedication or the commitment required. His team comes first. It’s as simple as that.

After his first successful mission with his new team, he’s at Suds After BUD/S Bar celebrating, when a gorgeous cougar walks in and catches his eye. Seducing the Frog Hog with a no commitment, no strings, just balls to the wall, banging relationship, Bella Rayne Parker becomes a bad habit too good to give up. 

But when she disappears, he discovers two things. One, she’s been hiding from an evil ex, and two, he has not stayed frosty. On the hunt to find her, Jayden enlists the help of Jeff Crockett’s Cōčk Blockers, and you can bet your sweet ass that vengeance will be served up on a silver platter. 

But who serves it and how?

Blurb:

Bad boys are my bane. My weakness? The cute player.

The one who charms with smoldering looks, wicked grins, knowing smirks, and unspoken challenges.

Jayden Evans is all those things and more.

He’s not just a bad boy. He’s a badass.

But ten years is a lifetime.

A lot of water has flowed under my thirty-year-old bridge. I’ve been married, abused, and divorced. The last thing I need is to fall for a man who has no idea what life is all about.

But he’s cute AF and his smirk makes me forget my age, my troubles, my issues. His smoldering stare takes me back in time when love was supposed to be beautiful. He may be younger and not experienced in life’s hard lessons, but he’s not a coward nor weak. He’s a Navy SEAL.

And he’s promised that we will ‘stay frosty.’

We won’t get emotionally involved. It’ll be strictly sex.

No strings. No drama. No feelings for each other.

Only physical pleasures.

I would be a fool not to take him up on his offer. But if I do, I have to be careful.

My ex-husband, Manny Morales, is meaner than evil.

When he returned to Mexico to take over the Diablo gang, I refused to go with him.

But I know he has spies. If he finds out I’m seeing someone else, Spanish may become my only language.

Navy SEALs are trained to “Stay Frosty.”

Keep our emotions under control.

Stay alert and on our toes.

When I met Bella Rayne Parker, she tested my training.

Gorgeous.

Mature.

Independent.

Experienced.

Everything girls my age aren’t.

She’s just what I need to survive this lifestyle.

She doesn’t know it yet, but she’s already mine.

“Stay Frosty, Mission: Bella Rayne” is a standalone story in a series of interconnected rescue romance novels.

Trapped. Afraid. Traumatized.

Claustrophobic panic overwhelms me.

Tall. Strong. Masculine.

Comes to my rescue.

His scent. His deep voice.

Too dangerous in the dark.

One magical kiss and I’m under his spell.

Then the lights come on. The trance is broken.

Reality returns.

My hero is NOT Prince Charming. Not by a long shot.

Brash. Bad boy billionaire. Too callous to care.

But he vows, “I’m the thief that’s stolen your heart.”

Too handsome to deny. Too right to refuse.

He becomes my fake fiancée.

So focused. Such a liar.

He makes even me believe it too.

But it’s all a facade.

I’m not a princess. Fairy Tales are myths.

Happily ever after’s do not happen in real life.

Do they?
