Overview

When lone wolf, Navy SEAL Harold "Flash" Carney agrees to act as an undercover operative for the FBI in an international smuggling sting, he revisits a past he hoped to leave behind forever. During the sting his handler is killed. Neck deep in a double cross and cut off from his team, Flash goes on the run with only his training to keep him alive.

Samantha Cross is desperate to leave her past as a battered wife behind, but her ex-husband is attempting to gain custody of their daughter, Joy, to keep them in his life.

Meet the Author

I was born in Southeastern Kentucky, but grew up a Marine Corps brat. The love of reading was instilled in me when I first learned to read in Kindergarten at Parris Island, South Carolina. Books were the friends who traveled with me during the many transfers my father's military career entailed.

When I grew older, it was a natural transition for the love of reading to become a love for writing. Though I've been an art teacher and an artist for over twenty years, writing has always been my first love and my passion. And I know that will be true for the rest of my life.

Teresa Reasor is the author of Highland Moonlight, Captive Hearts, Timeless, Breaking Free (Book 1 of the SEAL TEAM Heartbreakers), and Breaking Through (Book 2 of the SEAL TEAM Heartbreakers) Breaking Away (Book 3 of the SEAL TEAM Heartbreakers.

What a beautifully crafted story, where different story lines are through the tale brought closer and closer together until they all bind together. Every new chapter sparked more interest to the story, "one more chapter" until wee hours of the morning when I finished the book. The stories are heart-breaking, but victorious and alluring. I loved it, when reading in tears, there was suddenly such a funny line, I burst into laughing aloud. The love stories are passionate, charming, and delicate. The relationship between Joy and Mr Tim delightful and lovely, the trust and love Joy has for him boundless, while Mr Tim cares for her in such a tender and gentle way. And once again the brotherhood, loyalty, honor, and integrity of the team is demonstrated. The suspense is thrilling, edge of your seat, holding your breath type. The violence gory and bloodstained, real. I've truly enjoyed the series, pretty much inhaled the whole series at oncand I hope there will be more in the future.

Navy SEAL Harold “Flash” Carney is working undercover for the FBI on an international smuggling sting.  During this sting he runs into some trouble and isn’t even able to be in contact with his team.  So he goes on the run hoping his training is enough to keep him alive!  And that is when he finds Sam. Samantha Cross is desperate to get away from her abusive ex-husband but he is trying to get custody of their daughter to keep them in his life.  Samantha is determined to protect her daughter no matter what.  And on top of this she is beginning to be drawn to her new renter. I can not wait to read more of this series!  I really enjoyed Flash’s story and knew I was going to when I read about his character in the first two books!  It keeps you hooked from page one!   I would highly recommend this series to anyone!!!

Teresa has done it again. From the moment I read the first book in this series I knew I had found a very  talented author that not only writes great military suspense but also compelling stories that just grip your  heart and doesn’t let go until the final page.  The author chose to write this book in two parts within the same book. For the first part we get the background on Harold “Flash” Carney and Samantha Cross. We go back to Iraq to those moments before the mission that went wrong that has been the catalyst for this series. We knew from the first book that Flash was approached by the FBI but never knew the reasons why. In the previous books we were lead to believe that he had a gambling problem and that had gotten him in trouble with the wrong people. That was so not the case.   Flash ends up having to go on the run from the FBI and NCIS after he is double crossed and who he assumes is the FBI trying to kill him. Running parallel to this is Samantha’s story. We come into her story right after she has been beaten horribly by her husband with their 4 year old daughter in the next room.  While in the hospital recovering, Sam has finally reached her breaking point and takes the steps needed to get away from her monster of a husband.  Part two of the story picks up seven months later. Flash is using an alias and opening up a branch security office in Nevada. It’s here when he goes to rent a garage apartment that he meets Sam and her daughter Joy who now own the home since her grandmother passed away. Flash is still trying to gather all the information he can against the ones that framed him so he can clear his name and get back to him team. What he hadn’t counted on was falling for his skittish landlord with the cute kid that still had a crazy ex stalking her.  As Flash and Sam’s two messed up lives start to converge we also have a secondary story of Captain James and his wife Marsha and there very young son who has a genetic defect and heart problems. I hope the author doesn’t mind me saying this but after talking with her she felt that James needed some redeeming after the way he treated Brett (the hero from the second book).  James and his wife along with their child were held and tortured for days by a terrorist in the second book. This not only left physical scars but deeply emotional ones for them both that have affected their marriage. James makes a decision when he finds another of his men in trouble and his marriage on the verge of ending that this time he is going to do everything within his power to try and save both.  Every time I read a book in this series I can see all the hard work that the author puts in to bring us such a compelling story. You are engrossed from the first page to the last and I savored every word and didn’t want it to end.
