Overview

In this sizzling introductory eBook novella, USA Today bestselling author Tina Wainscott kicks off a new series featuring a team of tough, fearless heroes who are prepared for just about anything, except the last threat they could ever expect: true love.
 
On a good day as a Navy SEAL, you save a life, protect a freedom, stop a killer. And on a bad day . . . well, you don’t get to have a bad day. But then one SEAL team does. Five impeccably trained soldiers who are used to danger and unafraid of death are sent into a black ops assignment where no one knows the full story of deceit and deception. The situation gets ugly. The press gets wind. Someone has to take the fall. And when these five SEALs fall, they fall hard.
 
Meet the Justiss Alliance: Risk, Rath, Saxby, Knox, and Julian. Led by a mysterious employer with plenty to hide, these fallen stars of the D.O.D. are about to take advantage of their ruined reputations and start turning wrongs to rights—no matter the cost.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
02/15/2014
This novella teaser for Wainscott's newest series introduces readers to the Justiss Alliance team. These former Navy SEALs decide to sign on with Chase Justiss because they have no other real options. They had all successfully escaped their screwed-up lives and families to succeed as SEALS, but that was before their colorfully coined defuckle—the mission of which the U.S. government disavows any knowledge. VERDICT After departing romantic suspense to write paranormal romance as Jaime Rush, Wainscott (Until the Day You Die) is back with this solid story; a must-have for romance and suspense lovers alike. [Xpress Reviews, 1/3/14.]—Heather Lisa Maneiro, Minnesota State Univ. Lib., Moorhead

    Is there anything hotter than our Arm Forces ok cowboys are hot

    Is there anything hotter than our Arm Forces ok cowboys are hot too but are Navy Seals have to be right up there at the top. The author brings to life the beginning of Justiss Alliance series with how Risk, Rath, Saxby, Knox, and Julian became a part of it. We get to read how it all got started, what set the men off and have their life’s as Seals torn away from them.

    I do find this story believable I have no doubt the government will or even has turned their back on a few good men when it comes to making our country look good, someone must take the fall which in this case are the proud, the brave men who gave all. These men follow orders are proud of their job, give 120 percent to our country and then some. They love the action, the thrills of protecting and serving their country. When an assignment goes back they take the fall. A few good men become a few bad men in the eyes of their peers, unjustified they are left to hang in the media. One man Chase Justiss, CEO of Justiss Alliance a security sees through the red tape. He makes it his mission to find out just what happen for he needs a few good men to help him take on the world and their unjust ways.

    This is a short novella which gives you the back ground on each man, why they became seals, why it was important to serve their county and how that county used them as scapegoats. There is no romance just a wonderful setup to a series that looks to be outstanding, full of thrills, action, suspense and maybe a little bit or romance.

    I really enjoyed Wild Hearts it answered a few question I had on each men but left me we a few more. I am not sure if I had read this first if I would have read the others in this series. Which my first book was Wild Ways that has hooked me and wanting more. This makes a nice add on to give background to a series that will keep you on the edge of your seats asking for more, more, more from our men of the arm forces.

    I am so glad that I chose to request this novella even if it is months after publication because had I not, I may have missed out on one SEXY~HOT~NAVY SEAL read! yikes !! lol
    This is an intro to a series (Justice Alliance) and Tina Wainscott does an excellent job of introducing the five ex- navy seals that will be focused on in books to come! She devotes several chapters of the book to each guy, you are given a little of their back story, and the reason that leads them to the decision to come back together to form a new team ~ The Justise Alliance.
    This is not a romance story but it does lead to future romance stories for all 5 members, each with individual HEAs :)
    I cant wait to read them ALL!

    Title: Wild Hearts - Novella The Justiss Alliance 0.5 -
    An Introduction To The Justiss Alliance Series
    Author: Tina Wainscott
    Publisher: Random House Publishing Group/Loveswept
    Published: 1-7-2013

    Genre: Action
    Tags: Adventure, Series


    This short novella tells the history of how Rick "Risk" Yarbrough, Rathmuesen "Rath" Blackwood, Jullian Cuevas, Knox Logan and Saxby " Sax" Logan were dishonorably discharged from the Navy Seals following a mission that could not have gone more wrong. As they prepare to each go their own way they meet Chase Justiss, the CEO of The Justiss Alliance Security and Risk Management, a company that obtains justice that sometimes means working outside the parameters of the law.


    Tina Wainscott provides a brief glimpse into what each member of the team confronts as they return home after they are slaughtered in the press. You will also learn about their personal backgrounds and how they react to Chase Justiss' job offer and their desire to find "The Wolf", who is believed to be behind their last wet op. If you like military alpha types you are going to love this series. Each member as well as Chase Justiss is to have their own book. First up will be Rick Yarborough in Wild on You followed by Julian Cuevas's story in Wild Ways. I am looking forward to being able to read all their stories. Well done Ms. Wainscott, you have developed some awesome characters I can't wait to hear more from.

    Wild Hearts by Tina Wainscott is a prequel/novella introducing readers to her new series Justiss Alliance.
    This is my first book by Tina Wainscott; but it definitely won't be my last. This book captured my attention immediately. You are introduced to Rick Yarbrough (Risk), Julian Cuevas (Salsa), Saxby Cole (Sooch), Knox Logan (Maverick) and Rathmusen Blackwood (Rath). They are all members of a Navy SEALs team that was on a black ops mission that goes wrong. They are thrown under the bus by the government and discharged from the Navy after signing a non-disclosure agreement. Their reputations are shattered but they still believe in honor, commitment and seeking justice for others and for themselves. The reader is also introduced to Chase Justiss, the CEO of Justiss Alliance, who meets up with the 5 SEALs after their discharge hearing. He offers them a chance to work for him once they have had some "down time". He knows what these men have just been through and he's there for them if they decide to continue trying to provide justice for others.

    The first chapter describes the mission and the debacle that followed. Then the following chapters introduce us to each one of these alpha males and their families and backgrounds. Rick, Julian, Saxby, Knox and Rath all have their personal reasons for joining the military and readers get a small look into their personal worlds in this story. Their backgrounds, training and commitment to each other are what make these men the "alpha" heros that I enjoy reading about in romantic suspense. I will be reading the next one in the series WILD ON YOU which will be released in February.

    Meet the SEAL team known as the Rogue Six after a botched missio

    Meet the SEAL team known as the Rogue Six after a botched mission leaves them out of a job and maligned:

    Rick 'Risk' Yarbrough
    Julian 'Salsa' Cuevas
    Saxby 'Sooch' Cole
    Rath 'Psycho' Blackwood
    Knox Logan

    This was my first read by author Tina Wainscott, and I couldn't resist the cover or the promise of romantic suspense involving Navy SEALs. This brief introduction to the series begins with the event that lead to the team's fall from grace, and set up their first meeting with the mysterious CEO Chase Justiss of The Justiss Alliance, a security and risk management firm (I couldn't stop calling it The Justice League in my head).

    This novella was seven chapters long, and aside from the mission, each subsequent chapter gave us a look into the lives of each SEAL on their home turf. Each and every one of them had some sort of family problem, but I did enjoy finding out their reasons for joining the military. What stood out the most to me was that some of the families had their reasons for wanting their boy to stay put, either to help out in the family business or to put down roots, but those men didn't train so hard and dedicate their lives to their country for so long only to throw in the towel at the first sign of trouble. Even though each of them had a good reason to want to flee from home, at the core, they still believed in honor, commitment and seeking justice for others and for themselves. I think it will be interesting to read about their search for the alleged traitor and finding out what types of women will snag these honorable soldiers and soothe their tortured souls.

    However, and this will depend on a reader's personal preference, I usually enjoy discovering a hero's present and past as the story moves along, but here the mystery behind each man was removed, to a point. Therefore, do I find it absolutely necessary to read this before diving into the new series? Not really. Not unless the author doesn't plan on rehashing some of the facts we've gleaned here. Regardless of the existence of this intro novella, I still would have picked up the first real story in this series.

    TINA WAINSCOTT - WILD HEARTS

    • 72 pages
    • release date - 07 January - 2014
    • Justiss Alliance #0.5 (prologue Novella)

    MY THOUGHTS

    WILD HEARTS is a verrrry short prologue-kind of story - and I really think this should be a requirement for EVERY book series out there. You would never again get confused by all the people in a book ¿

    It was perfect.

    We start off with a Team of Navy SEALs (Risk, Rath, Saxby, Knox & Julian) about to enter the House of Mexican bad guys. The SEAL's mission is to kill the leader and his buddies.

    But the mission is a complete failure because someone they thought they could trust (only known as THE WOLF), gave them wrong information.

    Now back home the government needs to blame someone and they choose the SEALs - they are discharged from the military and everybody thinks they were the bad guys in all this.

    As they walk out of the hearing a Limo is waiting for them and inside they meet Chase Justiss - telling the guys that he wants to hire them. He says that the same thing happened to him a while ago and that's why he started his Miami-based company JUSITSS ALLIANCE to help wronged soldiers and to give them a purpose again - working great cases without the government hindering their work.

    He leaves his card and tells them to call once everything calms down.

    After that we follow EACH of the team members home and we get a quick introduction into their lives and history and problems and fears and dreams.

    And when they meet up again a few weeks later - they discuss what to do about the job-offer ¿

    It was just wonderful!!! Now, when we get to read book #1 in the Justiss Alliance series we already know who's who and what their background is!
    _______________________________________

    I wish every Author would write a short little story like this.

    Now I can't wait to get started with the series - because I want to know about how all the guys find their happy ever after ¿

    I really enjoyed it.

    GO GET IT! ¿

    Great Start for a NEW Series that Looks to be a Scorcher!

    Welcome to the meet & greet for what looks to be a hot new series! Wild Hearts by Tina Wainscott is a brief novella that lays the foundation for the Justiss Alliance series and the men who have what it takes to work black-ops type missions, for a fee. As the fall guys for a covert SEAL operation that went sideways, then belly-up, publicly disgraced and sent packing, these men are well-trained, probably the best of the best, but each is damaged or flawed, one way or the other. What they each need is a good woman in their lives…and Tina Wainscott is going to make it happen!

    What a brilliant way to snag everyone’s interest, each man gets his chapter, each has that alpha thing going, and each gets the call from Chase Justiss to do what they do best! From the admitted lady’s man to the guy who doesn’t want to follow in the family crime business, these men promise to make for some reading with heat!

    I really enjoyed this book. It was very fun to read. The characters were well explained and played out in the book. The author took time to give details in each part of the book. I think that it was well written and makes me want to read more books by Tina.








    I really like the part where they are in the room and he is handcuffed and she says that she does not have a condom, so he tells her to go and get one from his brother and when she is gone he escapes and climbs out onto the balcony and jumps to get away. I like the fact that when they are talking as a family about his trip to Mexico and he sticks to his guns about not telling them any information that is classified; it really makes me think that is the way it really is. I would recommend this book for all readers.
