Overview

Thomas Griffin never thought he'd be a homeless vet at forty-six years old. But when he was no longer useful to the government he'd spent his life serving, they turned their back on him when he needed them most, costing him everything he ever loved. After that, he really didn't care. Living his life on the fringe was safe and he didn't have to worry about anything except his next meal. That safety remains until a beautiful socialite decides to come slumming for Thanksgiving on the wrong side of town and gets herself into trouble.

Over her fifty-five years of life, Lou Ellen Wells had received many blessings. To pay them forward and honor the men in her life who served her country, both living and dead, she cooked Thanksgiving Dinner at the Dallas Veteran's Services Center every year. It was located in a bad part of town, but she'd never had a problem, until this year when she's brutally attacked and can't get to her gun. A bedraggled man with piercing blue eyes jumps to her rescue and saves her with moves out of an action movie. She gives him her card and offers him help, but he tells her doesn't need saving and takes off like his tail is on fire. 

A couple of weeks later, Lou is surprised when the man calls her asking for help of a different kind. A teenage girl he cares about has gone missing in gang territory. He's afraid she'll get killed if he doesn't find her soon. Lou calls in the team to help him, but her price for that help is finding out why her Silent Knight, who is obviously skilled and educated, chooses to be homeless. 

But will satisfying her curiosity about Thomas Griffin put her in the crosshairs of a terrorist group even more dangerous than MS-13?

Can Lou Ellen get the HEA she deserves? We have met Lou Ellen numerous times, along with 'Bruno' her trusty sidekick, and we know it is going to take someone very special to get past her defences. She is surrounded by hardened, x-forces, alpha males every day and rules them and the office with an iron fist and a look that can silence all of them instantly - and we love her for it, because under this spine of steel is a heart of gold, we have had plenty of glimpses of it over the series. Griff is broken and living on the streets, not totally unheard of for a vet, but it is not the trauma's of war that broke him- betrayal and loss have crippled him. His protective instincts are alive and well, but his trust and motivation for life are dead and buried. The only thing keeping him fighting each day is protecting Layla, until he comes across Lou Ellen and has to come to her rescue. They both need each other but is Lou Ellen strong enough to show Griff there are people he can trust, people who will not only have his back without question, but also welcome him to the family and love him - is he strong enough to trust his heart and his life to Lou Ellen? Can Lou Ellen finally get everything she wants? The guy, the family, the job, everything, all at the same time? Or will her heart pay the price again? As with all the Deep Six books this one sucks you straight in and the real world fades, fortunately this is a novella and so is easily read in an evening, allowing you to let yourself be full absorbed in all things Deep Six for a few glorious hours. Cannot wait for book 6 on 26th December!

Silent Knight is the seventh book in the Deep Six Security series, and you don't have to read the other books to enjoy this one, but you will probably want to after reading this one. This is the story of Thomas Griffin, a homeless, handsome yet hardheaded vet who has very good reasons for being homeless. The heroine in this book is Lou Ellen Wells, the office manager for Deep Six Security, whom I have fell in love with from the other books in the series. She is tough, takes no crap, and keeps Bruno close, yeah you will have to read it to find out who Bruno is. Lou Ellen volunteers at the Veteran's Services center and gets into a little bit of trouble while there, Griff comes to her rescue, her silent knight. Later she is shocked when Griff comes to her needing help finding a young girl, but as always Lou Ellen steps forward and brings the whole team in. This is a romantic suspense, told in dual POV, it is loaded with romance, suspense, laughter and tears. I loved the fact that Griff and Lou Ellen were older, I also loved that he called her Queenie, and she actually let him. This book quickly became my favorite of the series, when two stubborn, set in their ways people, found themselves drawn to one another.

This is book 7 in the Deep Six Security series and it features Lou Ellen and Griff. This series just keeps getting better and better. Lou Ellen is the “alpha wrangler/office manager” and a more perfect story couldn’t have been written for her. She’s a pay-it-forward type of person, which is how she met Griff. He’s living off the grid as a homeless person and it’s by his choice. I think it’s wonderful that she FINALLY found her soulmate and horribly heartbreaking that he refuses to stay with her. This is a brilliant story line with amazing characters! Despite Lou Ellen’s personality, make sure you have a tissue handy. Even she gets emotional in this one. I love this series and I’m excited to read the next one.

Becky McGraw - Silent Knight – (Deep Six Security Series - Book 7) Ms. McGraw has given her readers a novella that will not soon be forgotten. If you read the Deep Six Security Series, you have met Lou Ellen. She is a no nonsense, take no prisoners, tough as nails office manager that has the biggest heart you will ever meet. The “guys” at Deep Six is her family and they all respect and love her equally. As the description states, Lou Ellen pays it forward in every way possible, including volunteering in the kitchen at the Dallas Veterans Service Center at Thanksgiving. After she was through with the TG Dinner, she was attacked on her way to her car. Lou Ellen of course carries (a gun) but unable to get to it, she was in big trouble. That is until Thomas Griffin rescued her. She wanted to repay him, but he would have none of that. Instead, she tells him that if he ever needs anything to call the number on her business card. As the story unwinds, we find out that Thomas had been in special ops and then the CIA. However, now he had to reside off the grid. When Thomas needed Lou Ellen and her “guys” from Deep Six, they all jump in to help him. This story is perfect for the holidays because we all want to pay it forward and to help those that need it. You will love this story and perhaps get angry with the government that abandoned Thomas resulting in unimaginable consequences. Don’t miss this story of how when the stars align just right, everyone can have their happy ever after.

This was a great holiday novella! Griff is a homeless veteran and Lou Ellen is the Deep Six Security office manager. They must overcome their personal issues to form a family with two troubled teenagers. Although this is a holiday story, it's still Deep Security Six, so it's fast paced and full of action. It was nice to read a story with an "older" couple, full of life's experiences, instead of the usual 20-30 somethings. I voluntarily received an advanced in exchange for my honest review.

Silent Knight Becky McGraw It is Thanksgiving and Lou Ellen Wells of Deep Six Security is volunteering at the homeless Vet Center. She wants to give back. She gets mugged on the way back to her car afterwards and is rescued by another homeless man. Thomas Griffin, her rescuer is homeless by choice. He lives in a tent city along with fifteen year old runaway, Layla whom he has promised to protect and who was being abused at home. Griff has many secrets. As the story continues, we find out what they are. As Griff is helping Lou Ellen, Layla is taken and it is Griff’s job to find her. Lou Ellen feels something for this homeless man and enlists the aid of Deep Six to help her find Layla before it is too late. This story takes place between Thanksgiving and Christmas and is sure to tug at your heartstrings. As the story progresses, we feel for Griff and the events that have led to him becoming homeless. So much had happened to make Griff lead the life he has. Lou has a big heart and so do the other members of Deep Six who help her rescue Layla and help to give Griff back his life. I read this story in one night. I couldn’t put it down. I will admit, a tissue or two was used during the reading. Once again, Becky McGraw has written a wonderful story. One of the issues I thought that was brought to light was the plight of homeless Vets. (tissues here). I really enjoyed this story and hope to read more of Lou Ellen, Griff and their new family in future books.

This is the 7th book in the Deep Six Security series. I highly recommend that you read the previous books so you know the characters and the relationships between them. This one is about Lou Ellen, who is the office manager now, and Thomas Griffin, who is vet who lost everything and is now homeless and prefers it that way for his own reasons. He saves Lou when she is attacked and she tries to help him, but he doesn't want her help. Until the teen girl he was trying to protect on the streets disappears. Then he calls and asks for help for her. He only does it to try to continue to help this teen girl. That right there should tell you the type of man he is. I absolutely loved this book! Now don't get me wrong, I love the books previously but this book is about older people who can still find love together. No matter the circumstances surrounding it. Griff is a sweet man who lost everything when the government left him hanging. And I mean everything. It was heartbreaking to read his back story. I have always liked Lou, since the very first time she showed up in the series. She is a no nonsense woman who is not afraid to tell you how it is. But her tough exterior hides a heart of gold! Put them together? This book had everything for me! Action, laughter, and most of all? Love! I was engrossed from start to finish and truly love this author! So glad I found her books!

Thomas Griffin is a homeless vet. Although most people don't choose to be homeless, he did. Griffin served his country as a sniper. In doing so, he killed hundreds of terrorists. Griiffin's wife and daughter were casualties of said terrorist out for revenge. Grif swears to NEVER care for anyone again for fear of them becoming the next target....until he meets a teenage girl in need. Grif keeps a watchful eye over the runaway, but can't be with her at all times. While out panhandling, Grif comes to the aid of Lou Ellen. Lou Ellen is the office manager of Deep Six Securities. She's like a mother to the men she works with. During Thanksgiving holiday, Lou Ellen volunteers to feed people at the homeless shelter. She sees this as a way to pay it forward, serving those who served us in the military. After volunteering, she is accosted in the alley. A "white knight" comes to her rescue. Although he's mean, gruff, and dirty, Ella can tell he's a good man. She offers to buy him a meal at the pub and he reluctantly accepts. While there, Ella senses he's in need of help but is too proud to ask for it. Before leaving, she hands Griffin a business card offering the assistance of Deep Six--if he should need it. Upon arriving back to tent city, Griffin realizes his teenage charge has taken off with a gang member. Not sure where to search, he starts with the least deadly, menacing gang and works his way up. Realizing he needs assistance, he calls on Lou Ellen and Deep Six. The guys of Deep Six Security are back in action!!! I LOVED this fast-paced novella. The end had me on the edge of my seat, almost fearful to read the next page. I LOVED that this couple was "older". While I think it's sad that so many of our veterans return home to find themselves homeless, I liked that the storyline didn't follow the typical route. Griffin actually chose to be homeless in fear of retaliation. He wouldn't allow another person he loved to be killed in revenge. Even though we don't want to think that our own government wouldn't alert a former operative that their cover had been blown and fail to offer protection to their family, I can "see" it actually happening. Lastly, the ending was AWESOME!!!!!!! The added twist was unexpected. I received a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.

I like that Lou Ellen is strong, straightforward and doesn't put up with any nonsense. I'm glad that her path crossed with Griff's because they are perfect for each other. I enjoyed their bumpy journey as Griff battled with the demons from his past. Silent Knight was a great read. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary Advance Reader Copy.

Lou Ellen has always respected the veterans who served their country. One of the ways she shows her appreciation is serving at a local center twice a month. On Thanksgiving she meets a homeless vet who saves her from an attack. He has secrets that he’s not sharing and she leaves hoping her guys at Deep Six will be able to find more about her mysterious savior. Griff has suffered in the worse possible way after serving his country and giving his all. When he realizes he’s going to need help finding a young girl, who lives on the streets with him, he is all but ready to give up because he just doesn’t have what he needs to find her. But at the last moment, divine intervention in the form of Lou Ellen’s business card. What follows if fast paced, high octane, constantly moving, a little loving and lots of groveling. I really enjoyed this novella and all the characters. Dual POV Safe – no ow/om drama Possible Triggers – gang violence, past abuse for the children involved

Oh My Goodness... If you have been reading the Deep Six Security Series then you know who Lou Ellen is, she has been one of my favorite people in this series. Lou Ellen is the office manager for the company and lets just say that her sassy attitude helps her keep these supermen in order and she kind of acts as a "mother figure" to the guys. I don't care what anyone says women get better with age and they know how to handle their men and themselves, but when Lou Ellen gets herself into a situation that is out of her control and scaring the holy heck out of her, the man who comes to her rescue is not exactly what he appears to be. I loved Griff and Lou Ellen together, and this story pulled at those heartstrings and brought all of the feelings to the surface. I laughed, got angry, wanted to hug the characters and then wanted to smack them in the back of the head... lol This is my favorite book of this series by far, and I hope that they will be making lots of appearances in the future in Ms. McGraw's stories.

Silent Knight by Becky McGraw is a definite must-read. Ms. McGraw has given us a well-written book. You can't help but love the characters, they are phenomenal. Kudos to Ms. McGraw on this amazing cast of characters. Lou Ellen is the sassy 55 year old office manager for Deep Six Security. Griff is a 46 year old homeless veteran living off the grid while trying to keep a young runaway safe. Their story is loaded with action, suspense, drama, humor and spice. This book has it all and had me spellbound from start to finish. I loved reading Silent Knight and look forward to my next book by the talented Becky McGraw. Silent Knight is book 7 of the Deep Six Security Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

ARC for honest review with no compensation Silent Knight is book 7 in the Deep Six Security series by Becky McGraw and is another suspenseful, page turner and well written book. Thomas “Griff” Griffin spent his life in the military but when things went bad and he lost everything the government cut him loose with nothing. Not caring about himself any longer he becomes homeless and under the radar until he finds and helps a young runaway in the homeless community. Until one night he sees a woman attacked in the bad part of town at Thanksgiving and comes to her rescue and saves her life which starts him on a journey he never expected. Lou Ellen Wells works for the Deep Six Security and for a number of years has gone to the Dallas Veterans Service Center to help serve Thanksgiving dinner and to pay it forward for all services these men and women did for their country. When she leaves the center she is attacked but a homeless man comes to her rescue and deep in her mind she knows he is a former military man. She gives him her card and offers to help him but he wants nothing to do with her or her help. Until a few weeks later, he calls asking for her and the company she works for to help find the teen he is helping who is now missing and believed to have gone into gang territory to help her brother. Can these two find the missing teen and her brother and still stay alive when the gang makes them all a mark?? Will Lou Ellen find out why her Silent Knight chooses to be homeless?? Will they also find that the attraction between them is so strong that secrets need to come out before they can find their HEA??

Exciting!! I loved Lou Ellen and Griff's story! Lou Ellen is my idle when it comes to kicking butt but she also has such a BIG heart. When she runs into a problem she can't handle and Griff comes in to save her, he had me swooning!! He definitely is a Silent Knight! The perfect holiday story for the person who likes a little excitement in their romances!!

this one doesn’t disappoint us. The story centers around Griff/Thomas Griffin and Lou Ellen Welles. Griff is a man who has had many losses, not only in his life in the military, and CIA but most importantly, in his personal life. HIs world came tumbling down and so did he. His devastation drove him to homelessness . But his values have not deserted him. He protects a young girl who is living under the bridge with him and other homeless individuals. Lou Ellen manages the office of Deep Six Security. A strong , independent, giving woman, who has had her share of losses. Her father and first husband served and died protecting our country. She gives back by volunteering during the holidays serving meals to the veterans as the Dallas Veteran’s Service Center. These two meet when Lou Ellen is attacked and Griff comes to her rescue. She offers him a meal and gives him her business card. Life is full of surprises and when in need , Griff contacts her and she in turn calls in the troupes in the form of the Deep Six men, who spring into action for her. The storyline is not only engaging from page one but also heartbreaking, heartwarming and enlightening. The characters are complex and endearing, and at times you will want to just walk into the pages of the book so you can give them a hug. Be prepared to shed a tear or two. I sure did. Lastly, I appreciate the fact that the author highlights the need to do more for the men and women who have served our country. Upon their return, many come back with not only physical scars, but emotional and psychological ones as well. We , as a nation, need to do more for these brave men and women who are willing to give up their lives for our freedom. Thank you , Ms McGraw for that reminder. I was gifted a copy of this book. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
