Presumed Dead, Navy SEAL Returns Home to Fight an Unseen Enemy

–Present Day, Virginia Beach, Virginia–

A dead man stands on her doorstep.

When the Navy wrote off her MIA husband as dead, Eden came to terms with being a widow. But now, her Navy SEAL husband is staring her in the face. Eden knows she should be over-the-moon, but she isn’t.

Diagnosed with PTSD and amnesia, Navy SEAL Jonah Mills has no recollection of their fractured marriage, no memory of Eden nor her fourteen-year-old daughter. Still, he feels a connection to both.

Unfit for active duty and assigned to therapy, Jonah knows he has work to do and relies on God, who sustained him during captivity, to heal his mind, body, and hopefully his family.

But as the memories lurking in his wife’s haunted eyes and behind his daughter’s uncertain smile begin to return to him, Jonah makes another discovery. There is treachery in the highest ranks of his Team, treachery that not only threatens him but places his new-found family in its crosshairs.

EVERY SECRET THING: Acts of Valor Book 2

Every secret thing cover

Navy SEAL Lt. Lucas Strong will do anything to keep his teammate Jaguar (Returning to Eden) from being falsely condemned. The one person who can help Lucas prove Jaguar’s innocence is the gutsy NCIS intern with the photographic memory. Too bad Charlotte Patterson disappeared without a trace two weeks earlier.

In rescuing herself, Charlotte literally falls into Lucas’s arms, then pledges to assist him in proving Jaguar’s innocence. As she and Lucas race the clock, outrunning powerful leaders bent on halting their investigation, Lucas tells Charlotte God will protect them and justice will prevail.

A skeptical Charlotte resists such naivete, as well as the deep-down feeling that they belong together. Her plans—if she survives—are set in stone. Besides, it’s all she and Lucas can do to stay alive, let alone expose corruption in the military’s highest ranks. For everything to turn out well, that would truly take a miracle.
