"With her usual charm and engaging storytelling Diana Gardin has once again proved why she's my new go-to author." -- #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken For seven years he's fought for his country. Now he'll fight for her. Army Ranger Dare Conners has been through hell. He's left combat behind, yet the memories that refuse to fade are proving just as dangerous. Ordered to take R&R, he joins his buddy for beaches, beers, and babes-if that can't cure him, nothing will. But when he meets Berkeley, a woman who affects him like no one else, a new kind of battle begins . . . An Admiral's daughter, Berkeley knows her life has been planned since birth. The right school, the right boyfriend-and now that she's graduated-the right marriage. But after years of being right, Berkeley is ready to be a little wrong. And Dare Conners has wrong written all over him. The sexy soldier has a body built for sin and secrets he won't share. What starts as a fling quickly grows into something more. But summer can't last forever, and when the truth comes out, both Berkeley and Dare could be in for quite a fall. "Last True Hero is the perfect escape. Diana Gardin is a fresh new voice in contemporary romance." -- Lia Riley

AN AMAZON #2 BESTSELLER A SEAL VET and an abandoned puppy team up when their choices have run out. Nathan Hero, cursed with the ridiculous last name he hates so much, is back—to the town he swore he'd never return to. Serving as one of Canada's elite Delta North Team Special Ops soldiers made him proud. But he isn't proud of the PTSD that's secretly cut him down. Of how he can't hold a job now. And he isn't proud of the horrible reputation his torn-apart family still has in the small, northern Canadian town of Jack's Bay, usually so forgiving—but not in the case of those Heros. Amy St. James sparkles. An intelligent and caring young woman, she loves Jack's Bay. But she's going out on a limb now—alone—to craft a local enterprise with big plans to help the community. It's risky. And dating? Up until now, none of the preppy, well-established men her family hoists at her has captured her heart. But when she meets the dark-mooded Nathan Hero and his tiny scrapper of a puppy—Ryker—her heart crumbles. Against everyone's advice, the two become friends. The attraction builds. But as obstacles mount, everyone is against them. And as events climax, they'll have to come to terms with the importance of following their own hearts, no matter what others think. And especially? Everyone—including the whole town—will have to revisit the ultimate question: what really makes a man a hero. "A man, and a puppy. Both heroes." ---- THE DELTA NORTH TEAM Small Town Military Romance Series: Soldiers Coming Home *Two series: A main series, and a novella series. A band of brothers were forged to provide military support for critical missions, with men from two countries: the U.S. and Canada, in the spirit of their forerunner, The Devil’s Brigade. With the handle The Delta North Special Ops Team, these soldiers sweat and worked together, put their lives on the line, and pulled off critical missions and successes. Now these heroes have come home and are starting their civilian lives far away from the battlefield, but with the same stalwart and uncompromising principles they fought under still strong in their hearts. Integrating back into civilian life will not be easy. Much has changed since they’ve been gone, and sometimes? Not enough has changed. But they’re back… …and they’re going to make a dent. Read their stories, hold your breath, cheer for their hard-won successes.

This thoughtful memoir recounts one man's transformation from a glory-seeking, gung-ho Kansas teenager to a weary, twice-wounded grunt who had volunteered for a second tour of duty. Enlisting in the Army in June 1964 at age 17, Micheal Clodfelter was assigned to an artillery battalion of the 101st Airborne Division and arrived at Cam Ranh Bay on July 29, 1965; on August 9, 1966, after having requested a transfer to the infantry, he was assigned to Charlie Company, 2/502nd Airborne, serving in Phu Yen and Kontum provinces. A second injury resulted in his medical evacuation from Vietnam on January 8, 1967. Describing the intensity of "mad minutes" (the general discharge of all weapons along a defense perimeter to discourage a potential enemy attack) amid the monotony, exhaustion and horror of war, Clodfelter writes of entering "a territory from which none of us ever really returned."

This bundle contains Book #4, Book #5 and Book #6 in the bestselling, award-winning BEYOND series. Beyond Jealousy - Beyond, Book Four When Rachel Riley sacrificed a life in Eden to protect the O’Kanes, she earned her place in the powerful Sector Four gang. But the former crime princess is tired of being everyone’s sweet little sister . It's time for her to embrace her fantasies as only an O'Kane can--with a delicious exiled soldier and the gang’s wickedly sinful tattoo artist. Lorenzo Cruz is a warrior, taught by his commanding officers in Eden that involvement equals distraction. Emotion is a liability, and desire a sin. No battle strategy prepared him for how Rachel makes his heart race...or the way his rival for her affections sets his blood on fire. Ace Santana has a dirty reputation and a mind to match, especially where his new lovers are concerned. He's eager to help Cruz embrace his dominant side, and to explore the lines between pleasure and pain with Rachel. But corrupting them quickly becomes an obsession. Three hearts on the line means a hundred ways their ménage a trois could go wrong. One of them could be the missing piece that makes them all whole...or a temporary diversion destined for a broken heart. Beyond Addiction - Beyond, Book Five Trix changed her name and her life when she got clean four years ago. As an O'Kane, she's happy, untouchable. Until a nightmare from her old life tears her away from her home and drags her back to Hell--also known as Sector Five. Losing Trix was the kick in the head Finn needed to get sober, but working as an enforcer for a man he hates is crushing his soul. The only thing keeping him going is his determination to destroy Sector Five from the inside. Then Trix comes back into his life--alive, in danger--and nothing else matters. Getting her home could be a suicide mission. The only thing deadlier is the old spark that flares to life between them. Soon, Finn and Trix are battling the one addiction neither of them ever managed to kick--each other. And it could cost them everything. Beyond Innocence - Beyond, Book Six For years, Jared has existed on the fringes of both Eden society and Dallas O’Kane's Sector Four gang. He travels between these worlds, protected by his money and power–money he earned selling his body, and power that comes from knowing secrets. He’s untouchable--until he starts a new life gathering intelligence for the O'Kanes. Lili Fleming walked out of Sector Five with a gun, the bloodstained clothes on her back, and an icy determination to survive. She finds herself in a world where people live hard and love harder, and nothing's more terrifying than how much the O’Kanes wake her up, make her feel--especially Jared. Emotion is a risk he can't afford, and a complication she doesn't need. But neither can resist the lust simmering between them, and the sparks that could either melt the ice around both their hearts...or get them killed. Because the only thing more dangerous than loving an O'Kane is loving a spy.

Too often, our servicemen return with more than scars and invisible wounds. They become something often considered monstrous for our military in order to defend our homeland. But what happens when their work is done and their respected units have no further use for them? Trained killers now told to be normal members of society and forget about what they were programmed to do. For most, it isn’t that easy to just revert back. Once killing is in your blood, you return to your primal roots and never again will you ever be the same. On the south coast of Texas, five fishermen, grown disenfranchised by hard work and low wages, find themselves in over their heads in the seedy world of international drug trafficking and in a crossfire between feuding cartels. When two border patrol agents find a dead man and a large sum of money on the banks of the Rio Grande, they are faced with the age-old decision between right and wrong. Alas, the distinction is not always so clear. A cartel enforcer is tasked with enforcing smuggling routes, but the former Mexican soldier has his own fanatical agenda as well. They are all lost souls on a collision course with one another that can only end with violence, an all-too-familiar outcome on the troubled Texas-Mexico border.

In search of answers and action, the award-winning poet and essayist Lisa Wells brings us Believers, introducing trailblazers and outliers from across the globe who have found radically new ways to live and reconnect to the Earth in the face of climate change We find ourselves at the end of the world. How, then, shall we live? Like most of us, Lisa Wells has spent years overwhelmed by increasingly urgent news of climate change on an apocalyptic scale. She did not need to be convinced of the stakes, but she could not find practical answers. She embarked on a pilgrimage, seeking wisdom and paths to action from outliers and visionaries, pragmatists and iconoclasts. Believers tracks through the lives of these people who are dedicated to repairing the earth and seemingly undaunted by the task ahead. Wells meets an itinerant gardener and misanthrope leading a group of nomadic activists in rewilding the American desert. She finds a group of environmentalist Christians practicing “watershed discipleship” in New Mexico and another group in Philadelphia turning the tools of violence into tools of farming—guns into ploughshares. She watches the world’s greatest tracker teach others how to read a trail, and visits botanists who are restoring land overrun by invasive species and destructive humans. She talks with survivors of catastrophic wildfires in California as they try to rebuild in ways that acknowledge the fires will come again. Through empathic, critical portraits, Wells shows that these trailblazers are not so far beyond the rest of us. They have had the same realization, have accepted that we are living through a global catastrophe, but are trying to answer the next question: How do you make a life at the end of the world? Through this miraculous commingling of acceptance and activism, this focus on seeing clearly and moving forward, Wells is able to take the devastating news facing us all, every day, and inject a possibility of real hope. Believers demands transformation. It will change how you think about your own actions, about how you can still make an impact, and about how we might yet reckon with our inheritance.

As he begins to explore his sexuality, he begins to realise that he is not attracted to females. As he struggles to come to terms with his homosexuality, John is faced with decisions that affect his relationships. As he tries desperately to be accepted in school and amongst his friends, he turns to the wider community and to his religion for help and guidance.
