At last! Gage and Alexa’s book is finally here. I has been an exciting 3 1/2 months, bringing out the first four Delos Series books to you!
Forged in Fire, Book 3, you meet Delta Force Sergeant Matt Culver, the twin to his younger sister by five minutes, Alexa. Matt doesn’t expect to fall in love at Bagram Army Base, but when he meets pediatrician Dara McKinley, who is volunteering her medical expertise in Kabul, his life changes forever. And so does hers!
Broken Dreams, Book, 4, meet Captain Alexa Culver. Marine Corps sniper, Gage Hunter, was broken years earlier by a harsh life while growing up. Never, in his wildest dreams would he consider falling in love with US Air Force Captain Alexa Culver. But he does. And both their lives changes in ways they could never imagine.
Alexa Culver, US Air Force combat pilot, A-10 Warthog, has had five deployments to Afghanistan over the years. Her life is devoted to keeping the men and women on the ground, safe from the enemy. A risk take by nature, she braves everything the enemy can throw at her aircraft as she swoops danger close to save lives.
WOW! It has been a labor of love on my part to put out these 100,000 word novels about 3.5 weeks apart, but well worth it because it gives you an over view of my next military family saga, Delos. You get to meet the three adult siblings who will create Artemis Security, the Delos in-house firm to protect the 1,800 charities that are flung worldwide, to help those in need.

Here’s an excerpt from Broken Dreams:
Gage said, “I want to enter that cave and set them down along it, so if the women are being pushed out in this direction, we’ll know ahead of time. We can also hear others talking. I know Urdu. So do you. We’ll be able to hear what’s going on and be better able to prepare for when they come out.” He looked over at the hard profile of the LPO, Drummond. “What do you think?”
Rubbing his beard, Drummond cursed softly. “I was thinking the same thing. I was just trying to decide who to send in.”
“Send me,” Gage said, his voice firm, his eyes on his team leader. “This is mine to do.”
“I heard some scuttlebutt back at the base,” the SEAL said, “that you were sweet on Captain Alexa Culver. Is that true?”
Gage swallowed; he wasn’t going to deny it. “I am.”
“Okay,” Drummond muttered, “let’s get all fifteen of those speaker nodes set up if you can. We can use all the help and pre-warning we can get. And I want you wired up with a radio that has fresh batteries in there. We’ll have the ability to talk or click back and forth once you get into that cave. Give us the layout and anything else you find.”
“Got it,” Gage said. Relief shot through him. He wanted—no, needed—to do something! He had instinctively known that Unimog would turn and come their way. He also knew Alexa and those other women were in deep trouble—he just didn’t know how bad it was. His heart clenched in his chest as he freed his emotions for just a moment, allowing his love for Alexa to surface. He’d been fighting the feeling ever since he met her. No one fell in love at first sight. It was impossible. But he couldn’t ignore the feelings in his heart for Alexa, even though he knew it was far too early to say anything to her. They had to have time. And he wasn’t sure they’d ever get it.
Gage knew she would be changed by this experience in the caves, but he didn’t know how. He knew slave traders all too well, and he sensed that something terrible and deeply traumatic had already happened to her and the other women. He knew he would love Alexa no matter what had happened. He’d be there for her, damn it, one way or another. He’d help her get back on her feet because he was in for the long haul—if she’d allow it.
In a matter of minutes, the nodes were gathered and Drummond showed him how they worked.
“Don’t play hero in there,” he told Gage.
Gage hesitated. “I’m a sniper. I know how to stalk. If I see or hear something, I may detour, but I’ll be in radio contact with you if I do. Right now, you know we need eyes and ears in there.” He suddenly grinned, his teeth white against the blackness of the night. “Besides,” Gage said, his voice wry, “there’s no one better to do it than a Marine . . .”
