His Marine training taught him that failure is never an option regardless of circumstances. That certainly applies to Chad's need to stop Lost and Found's deranged client from using the information he gathered to stalk and abuse his ex. Falling in love with the broken woman and her sweet daughter in the middle of rescuing them is definitely not the best timing. But it's also inevitable. In Book 3 of this heart-warming military romance series, Chad will discover that protecting Lora is a much easier task than proving he's the one man she can finally trust with her heart.
Weeks of no incriminating evidence should have clued him in sooner about who was the real victim. Now Chad Lowell is wracked with guilt after the woman he's assigned to investigate is attacked by her abusive ex-husband right under his nose. Lora and her little girl are in incredible danger, and he vows to protect them at all costs, whether the angry and hurt woman wants him to or not. His Marine training makes the protecting part easy, but nothing he does seems to make Lora want to take a chance on him or his love.
Lora O'Neil left a life of abuse to make a new start for herself and her daughter. When her ex hires Lost and Found Investigative Service to track her down, she's left reeling both physically and emotionally. The private detective that had been watching her for the past couple of months did finally come to her rescue, but does that mean she should now trust him to help her turn their lives around? The sexy former Marine makes her body feel things she thought she'd never feel for a man again, but she just can't imagine what it would take for her to heal enough to ever say yes.

About the Author

I am a wife and mother of two. I am a stay at home writer, which I dearly love, and I recently added the title USA Today Bestselling author to my moniker.
I was a Deputy Sheriff in Ohio for nine years, and I found myself tapping that experience as I wrote Second Time Around, my very first book. No, I didn’t tackle and cuff my husband, although there was that time in K-mart… Anyway, it was quite a change going from writing technical reports with diagrams, witness statements, inventories, etc., that would stand up in court to writing contemporary romance. I’ve always written, though, and it was always a dream to do something with that huge, leaning stack of spiral bound notebooks.
I’ve now published 15 books, with many more on the way. I thank you so much for taking an interest in my work!
Stay tuned! There’s a lot more coming!

What I love most about this series is that it's realistic, which means this series is so powerful and emotional. Throw in a few funny scenes, and you've got the perfect mix. Embattled Home isn't a light read by any means. It will move you and you may even shed a few tears. However, that's what makes this book enjoyable. It's nice to sit down and read a book that touches you as deeply as this book does.

Warning : major spousal abuse. If this is s trigger do not read! Very intense book. I cringed and was super glad there are good guys out there. I was quite disappointed that it was so expensive considering it was shorter then the last book which was cheaper. That seems unfair. I will probably read the next one as I love these characters.

Chad Lowell has been on a job for weeks now watching a clients ex wife and daughter  with no incriminating evidence.  Then one night while watching the woman, there is a disturbance in the home.  He rushing in the home to see what has happened when he hears a woman scream.  He rushes in to see the woman he is investigating be attacked by none other than the man who hired them...Her ex husband.  Feeling major guilt for what has happened, Chad has vowed to protect mother and child at all costs, whether the woman wants him to or not.   Lora O’Neil has tried to make a new start for herself and her daughter after living a life of abuse.  He ex husband hired the Lost and Found Investigative Service to track her down.  After watching her for a couple months and having nothing to report to her ex, he decided to break in her home and attack her.  The former Marine watching her hears the commotion and comes to her rescue.  Then he gets it in his mind he is going to protect them at all cost and packs them up and heads to his families ranch.  Chad starts making her feel things she hasn’t felt in a very long time.  Will she ever feel healed enough to give him a shot? I have been waiting so patiently for this book lol.  I fell in love with this series when I started it back in October.  I have always been drawn to romance books with Military characters.  J.M. has done a fabulous job with this series and this book was just a great as the others!  I can’t wait for more!

The truth is, the more I read from J.M. Madden, the more I like this author's writing. Embattled Home is book 3 in the Lost & Found series and I can't wait to start book 4. This book is well written, the story is fantastic, the characters are awesome. Embattled Home, Chad and Lora's story, is full of action, drama, humor, sizzle and grabs you from the start and will keep you turning the pages. Don't be surprised if you stay up late to finish it, I know I did. Embattled Home can be read as a stand alone, but I'm glad I started from the first book so I haven't missed any of these wounded warrior's stories. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

I’ve become totally infatuated with the crew of LNF. What’s really great about these stories is that not only do you get a new one, but it gives you updates on previous characters. Keep them coming!

I've always liked Chad, since he was first introduced, he has always been this positive force of energy in everyone's lives. No burn marks, no missing limbs, stopped this guys from influencing the people around him. So it stands to reason that I pictured him with a woman who would love him unconditionally, who might be just as damaged, if not physically, mentally, like him, but would be able to connect immediately with him because that woman would recognize that fierce determination in his eyes. Lora, did not start off as that woman, she was just flat out nasty. I totally get it, her distrust of all things MALE, her ex did a number on her and the fact the LNF was working for him didn't endear them to her at all. Yet after Chad saved her, took care of her child, protected her, cooked for her, she was still nasty as hell. Still I understood, she was damaged and it was extremely difficult for her to trust. She does come around and I'm glad she does because she is a genuinely nice and sweet person who deserves a man as fabulous as Chad! Overall another great addition to an already fabulous read! I'm so curious to read Preston Harper's story! SR

$5 for less than 180 page book. come on!!! this series is very good. I love reading the military books and this was about disabled veteran which makes it better. to read about real people who are not perfect. But I feel ripped off by the cost. This should have been .99 for such a short story.

This series brought up front and personal the struggles our wounded warriors face everyday when they come home. After personally, spending time in the Wounded Warrior organization, I found J.M. Madden's Embattled series eye opening and refreshing..
