All Shook Up

Owning Trace

A series of 6 novels about a group of ex-army buddies who set up a private security firm.

Rather  potty mouthed and explicit in terminology, with some sexual fetishes explored, take note if you are cautious, but still fun stories about how each of the guys involved finds his ‘true love’. And the gals – despite being married to somewhat, apparently, controlling guys, find a way to manage their husbands so that they have enough independence.

Running through the stories – which involve each gal having a threat to be overcome – is that of the Watcher – a story of someone watching over all the guys but who is also using them as bait for an old enemy, in the meantime saving the guys and gals from various threats. He works for a mysterious agency we don’t learn about until the very end when the web of conspiracies

ROUGH RIDER
Rebecca Jones grew up working in travelling carnivals. She likes the work, the freedom, and the sense of family that the carnival workers provide, especially since she’s become a single mother. Recently, however, she’s grown concerned for the safety of her daughter. They’ve gone to numerous towns now, but each time they set up shop she sees the same man. And each time he seems fixated on her daughter. Independent and direct, Rebecca tries to handle it on her own, but she can never seem to corner the man and no one else notices him. When she spots him trying to lure her daughter away she contacts Latvis Security Services for help.

MODEL EXPERIMENT
Andrea Chin is a fashion designer who, despite her small size, attracts a lot of attention, sometimes from all the wrong people. When one man crosses the line and begins stalking her and her models, she needs the help of Mads Latvis’ detective agency. Mads assigns her a bodyguard in the form of Dwayne Kingston, a big, burly, and boyish army veteran with a surprising amount of charm.

HIDDEN LIAISONS
After dozens of letters between them, genius scientist Baroness Natalie Vladimirovich finally gets to meet American private detective, Jai. The only problem is, Natalie doesn’t actually want to meet Jai in the flesh. She prefers to keep men at a distance—a decent letter writing distance, for instance. But then Natalie’s cousin Mads, Jai’s boss, drags almost his entire detective agency overseas in order to protect his relative from a deranged stalker. So now Natalie’s castle home has been invaded, thoroughly disrupting her experiments. Worse yet, her mind has also been invaded … and her heart.

HOPE & HYPOTHERMIA
Gwen Dahl towers over men not only in physical size but also in strength. When Jamie Hardy shows up in her small town, Gwen is shocked that he’s immediately and obviously interested in her. From Jamie’s perspective, he can’t understand why Gwen doesn’t see what he instantly sees in her. When Gwen’s brother Gawain is trapped outdoors in a life-threatening storm, Jamie gets to see Gwen’s real strength in action as together they race to save Gawain. But can he get Gwen to put aside past hurts and trust him with her heart as much as she is trusting him with her life?

HOME
Mads Latvis has sacrificed a lot in his life, to take care of the people he loves most. Over the years, he’s helped every person he’s been able to, in order to somehow atone for not helping the people who mattered most—his parents, who were stolen from him as a young child. But in his quest for revenge, Mads has becoming increasingly obsessive and lost, attempting to push away those now closest to him. Willow Millier is willing to go in order to keep the man she loves safe from all harm even if she has to stand between Mads and all his enemies, within and without, past and present, in order to bring him home again.

So the Carnival comes to town, with a trick horse rider, rides, and clown shows, and a creepy child stalker.

There are very different characterisations of the PIs/Bodyguards that makes these 5 books an interesting read. Her style is easy and flowing, and the stories move along with romances for all of course.

#1. Darren is a reclusive person and his client is Rebecca who is a trick horse rider with the Carnival, and who also has a daughter who is being stalked.

This story shows how they connect and how Darren shows off his own rodeo skills and acquires a daughter, who he teaches to dismantle and re-assemble a motor-bike.

#2. The irrepressible Dwayne, hulk and jokester falls for a dress designer Andrea and shows off his muscles. One of his favourite things to do is to sling Andrea over his shoulder and carry her around. And she loves it!

#3. Jai the ex-army doctor meets his pen-pal Natalie, who turns out to be not only brilliant but awkward and also, rather unexpectedly, Mad’s cousin, with whom he was very close growing up. And not only does it turn out that Mads is a Count, who speaks 8 languages – at least – but he also has a Scottish castle, is a psychiatrist, and a romantic matchmaker.

#4. Jamie, the model lookalike is the last of Mads’ employees to find his match and he falls for an ex-army girl who is taller and heavier than him – and really the complete opposite of his erstwhile fiancée – and turns out to be great fan of camping.

#5. Alongside all the other romances runs the one of Mads and Willow the florist who has the shop downstairs.

Willow it seems, had a very difficult past life. She was a wayward teenager and spent some time n a cult with a charming and manipulative leader – now in prison. This leader send her regular mail which leads to Willow and Mads spending significant time together for their attraction to be acted upon. Note – this story is sexually explicit and features some fetishes.

Each novel features a reason for the agency run by Mads to undertake protection work alongside the romance stories.

BOOK 1
I went to his sister because that’s what he told me to do. But when his brother, Cole, accused me of being a gold digger, I knew I couldn’t trust them. I didn’t realize she would send Cole to watch over me. Or that he would carry me out of my trailer when he saw how bad it really was. Who was he to tell me where I could live or how I managed my own business? I mean, he might be my kid’s uncle, but I’d been on my own for a long time. I didn’t need his help. And I really didn’t need the confusion that rushed through me whenever he stood too close.

BOOK 2
I do the best I can. I have to make a living, right? And this industry…it pays very well. And when you’re on the streets with a kid to take care of, you do what you have to do. But I took pains to hide my face in the movies I acted in. For seven years, I’d kept my identity anonymous. But someone figured it out and now I have this big, silent man following me around, demanding I do everything he says.

BOOK 3
I didn’t want him in my life, didn’t want him anywhere near me, but on the worst day of my life he comes walking down the street, a gun in his hand, and throws me over his shoulder like some sort of Neanderthal taking possession of what was his. But I wasn’t his anymore. That ended when I caught him kissing my sister in one of the most romantic cities in the world. My sister, who’d just been killed saying his name. How did I know he didn’t kill her? How did I know that he didn’t intend to kill me?

BOOK 4
I’m a nurse. I help people. I’ve done it all my life, even before I embraced my profession. So when I heard Blake Zimmerman explaining how he and his wife were desperate to have a baby, I couldn’t help but offer myself. I’d never thought about being a surrogate before, but I wanted to help and it wasn’t like I had any romantic prospects at that moment. Hell, I hadn’t had romantic prospects in a long time. And Blake…he was over the moon at the suggestion. So was his wife, Annie. But then, almost the moment we signed the contract, someone tried to run me down.

BOOK 5
We fought like cats and dogs. He made fun of my mode of dress and I…well, I usually just blushed and hit his arm, telling him to shut up. But I hated it, hated feeling like I was in high school again. So when Megan, my best friend and my boss, told me that we were to go on an undercover operation together, pretend to be a young, married couple, I thought she was insane. Or trying to play match maker.

BOOK 6
Megan's story. That's all I'm saying 😉

No this is NOT a book about shifters – not at all… just ex-SEALS, ex-cops, ex-marines and allover ‘ripped’ human males, now all being presided over by a female ex-marine who owns the company.

This is a series of 6 shortish novels each of which features one of the members of the firm and their romances, but with an underlying story running through of investigating just how Peter died. Peter, being the brother of the female CEO. The FBI/CIA and Police all get involved, and it becomes a complicated plot which has apparently many different solutions – until finally the true one is discovered in the final book.

There is a lot of detective work, spying, suspense, some terrorists, murders plus steamy romances.

Faith Ansell could never be mistaken for an action hero. The scientist is content in her lab, working with her team on life-changing discoveries. But when a mysterious organization captures her colleagues, she s forced to flee for her life with SEAL Team 7. Lieutenant Seth Rawls Rawlings, ST7 s corpsman, hasn t been himself since a near-death experience in the Sierra Nevadas. He s tense and distracted, and the team caught him arguing with himself loudly. Despite his erratic behavior, Rawls is the only one Faith feels comfortable confiding her life-threatening secret in. But Rawls has a secret of his own: his wasn t the only spirit to return to the physical plane when he was resuscitated. At first, Rawls assumed the ghost he saw and heard meant he was having a complete mental breakdown. But the apparition soon becomes convincingly real, and what s more, he may be the key to the conspiracy looming over them. Rawls had better act quickly because ST7 s race to save their reputations and Faith s life is on."

The 3rd book in this series for me. So far no others have been published but there is plenty of potential that is hinted at – and the story has not been competed as this book finishes – in fact a new conspiracy is discovered at the very end which leaves ST7 in a very strange place indeed.

We do find out who is behind the first conspiracy and also some of their justifications – all to do with the special project that the 7 scientists had been working on and its potential uses. It can clearly be used for good but it seems that it has other possible uses, more indeed than is originally thought of.

We learn what has happened to Embray, the person responsible for the project being worked on, and it is worse than originally thought – again, the conspiracy behaves in a way you would not thought possible.

Some new mental and physical abilities are demonstrated and a ghost appears. And a romance is begun.

All the members of the ST7 will be hitched by the time this series ends of course. It’s just who they will fall for and why.

We learn more of each characters’ family and their lives before they joined up which explains a lot of their behaviour and thought processes. We also learn gradually about their hang-ups and their their strengths.  Centring each book on a particular pair means that we are continually given a new perspective on what is happening.

He's denied her healing touch . . . until his enemies mark her for death.Thanks to her Arapaho heritage, Kait Winchester can heal with her touch. But the one man she wants to get her hands on — super-sexy Navy SEAL Marcus “Cosky” Simcosky — avoids her like the plague. When the wounded warrior finally seeks her help, she's determined to make him acknowledge their off-the-charts chemistry.Cosky is no stranger to trouble. SEAL Team 7 is under investigation for a hostage rescue gone wrong, a bullet has shattered his knee, and a female stalker is dogging his every painful step. On top of it all, the one woman who can help him get back on his feet — his teammate's sister — has haunted his fantasies for years. Keeping his hands off Kait, as she puts hers on him, may be a battle he's destined to lose. And when his stalker targets Kait, there's nothing he won't do to keep her safe . . . even if it means letting go of his legendary self-control.

This continues with the same cast of characters as book 1 but with new ones added for romance and conspiracy reasons.

Yes, we begin to learn why the plane was to be hijacked but not for ransom for the passengers as originally thought. The terrorists were only interested in 7 first class passengers, who were all scientists, working for the same company and on the same project.

Then the scientists’ lab blows up and 7 bodies are found – all are declared dead. And so the bodies pile up in this conspiracy.

A strange woman begins to follow ST7 and there are other people also following them about – are they the police – who don’t seem to believe the stories about how they knew about the terror plot – well you could hardly saw ‘I saw it in a dream’; or the FBI or indeed, people pretending to be police or FBI. No-one quite knows.

And meanwhile the Department of Justice is also examining just how ST7 knew about the plot. And is this an end to their careers if they find their stories unbelievable?

As the story unfolds we have another romance and another person with powers beyond the norm.

The story is told at the same breathless pace as book 1 but somehow just falls a little sort but still a 4 – just.
