Gunnery Sergeant Jason Scott considers himself unshockable. Part of a two man specialist team, he and his partner are called in for the jobs no one else can handle. The latest is no exception. Rescuing damsels in distress is part of the job description, and Jason's never looked twice at any of the rescuees.

Gunnery Sergeant Jason Scott considers himself unshockable. Part of a two man specialist team, he and his partner are called in for the jobs no one else can handle. The latest is no exception. Rescuing damsels in distress is part of the job description, and Jason's never looked twice at any of the rescuees. But when they find their latest mission objective tied to an overhead pipe, his hitherto unknown protective instincts come rushing to the fore. Delicate and full of curves that make his mouth water, he only sees a woman he wants to carry off and keep safe. To make her his. But things are never as simple as they seem and when he finds out who she really is, his world is rocked to the core.
A hard as nails black-ops Colonel…
Arita Rhade is as tough as they come. A hybrid of two species, she's used to people underestimating her because of her delicate appearance. The handsome new addition to her elite team is no exception. He's a soldier under her command, but she can't stop the thoughts of what it would be like… Thoughts she can't act on. Shouldn't act on. But a shuttle crash and her heat phase have other ideas and his touch ignites a fire that won't be ignored.
When a mission goes disastrously wrong, will their survival be the only thing put to the test?
Mina Carter was born and raised in Middle Earth (otherwise known as the Midlands, England). After a slew of careers ranging from logistics to land-surveying she can now be found in the wilds of Leicestershire with her husband and young daughter…the true boss of the family.
Suffering the curse of eternal curiosity Mina never tires of learning new skills which has led to Aromatherapy, Corsetry, Chain-maille making, Welding, Canoeing, Shooting, and pole-dancing to name but a few. A veteran Star Trek RPGer, she’s run both games and groups of games but now finds her home in Bravo Fleet, one of the internet’s oldest Star Trek simm groups.
She juggles being a mum, working full time and writing, tossing another ball in the air with her cover artwork. For Mina, writing time is the wee hours of the morning before anyone wakes up and starts making demands, or any spare minute that can be begged, bought or conned.
Her first stories were penned at age 11, when she used a stationery set meant for Christmas thank you letters to write stories instead. More recently, she wrote for her own amusement and to save on outrageous monthly book bills. Now she’s totally addicted and needs her daily writing fix or heads roll!
About J. William Mitchell
A resident of a tropical paradise in the South Pacific, Will spent his formative years surrounded by sun, sand and the sea. However, as he grew older, the sand and sea got left behind in the coast, leaving him with way too much sun and an extra helping of smog that left him a little crispy.
First hooked on writing since he was nine, his first machine had been an old clunky typewriter, but he quickly graduated to a computer when the metal antique reminded him way too much of his typing instructor…and the sound her wooden ruler made smacking him on the hands.
When he’s not working as a business consultant, Will spends his time arguing politics with his pet rock, but when the inspiration strikes, he leaps to his keyboard with the dexterity of a leopard…or an amped up gerbil, depending if he’s had way too much coffee again. Of course, as a diehard coffee addict, he would never say there’s such a thing as “too much coffee.”
