★ The Way Home Series ★
Author: Kim Mills
Genre: Military Romance

Add to your TBR - Goodreads



All The Way Home (#1)

They thought love was hard enough. They didn’t plan for war.


Tavish
I’ve watched her slowly destroy herself since the moment I found her walking home alone when we were sixteen. I said I would just be a friend, but when I fell in love instead I joined the army, moved away, and didn’t look back.

That is until I find myself calling her up days before I head overseas. Seeing her again may have been a mistake, because now I won’t let her go. Especially when I find her with a split lip and college acceptance

papers. Last time I was weak. This time, I won’t back down.

Juliette
Tavish has always been the one for me, but as damaged as I am, I’ve never been good enough for him. When he left to join the army, I figured he was finally done with me for good. Then he came back and rescued me, again, right before he left for the war.

When he gets home from Afghanistan, though, everything has changed.

This time, he might need me to rescue him.

All The Way Home is a Canadian-based military love story, the first in the Way Home series but is a stand-alone with it's own HEA.

This book is intended for audiences 18+. For those dealing with combat related PTSD, some scenes may be difficult to read







Fight For Home (#2)

Falling in love was the easiest part.

Mark
I’ve opened doors in Afghan villages into rooms filled with hostiles.

I’ve walked in with bullets flying.

Yet here I am staring at this closed door, unable to open it, because I know what’s on the other side...

My wife, and a monster I can’t save her from.

Megan

I knew I was his the moment he punched out my blind date.

All these years, all this hurt later, I still am.

I just don’t know if that’s going to be enough anymore. Not now, not while I’m staring down the scariest enemy, right here at home, and I'm still all by myself.

When the dust settles, we’re both going to have to decide if what we have is still worth the fight.

The Fight For Home is the second book in the Way Home Series. With its own couple and HEA it can be read and enjoyed as a stand-alone novel, but to see more of these characters and their beginnings you can start with book one, All The Way Home.

This book is recommended for readers 18+ for adult language, content and topics.




Run from Home (#3)
Watch The Trailer Here 

If only running away from each other was as easy as it sounds.


Twiz
I know who I am and what kind of violence I’m capable of. Which is why, no matter how badly I want to take this feisty redhead and keep her, I can’t.

When I run with her, though, I see a way to escape the reality of my career crashing down around me. When she’s threatened, it’s all I can do not to take her home with me always to keep her safe.

But then, who will keep her safe from me?

Erika
I promised myself I wouldn’t fall in love with the soldier. I live for control, but he keeps insisting on taking it all away and the worst part is, I want him to have it. I may not need a knight in shining armour, but this battle worn grunt in dusty combat boots is trying to rescue me anyways.

I know that he’s not the monster he thinks he is.

Now, I just have to get him to see that before we both run too far to find our way back to each other.

Run From Home is the third novel in the Way Home Series but can be read as a stand-alone with its own couple and HEA.

This book is intended for readers 18+ and deals with themes that include combat-related PTSD, sexual assault, and domestic violence.

Loc Glin ~ presents ~ Mission Almost Impossible


Mission Almost Impossible
By Loc Glin
Genre: Erotic Romance
Word Count: 13,206
Heat Rating: SCORCHING

Categories: Erotic Romance (MF), Action/Adventure – Futuristic – Science Fiction

Published By: Luminosity Publishing
Available in: Adobe Acrobat, Epub, Mobipocket (.mobi)

Blurb:
The odds are against him, but Jerin will find a way! With or without the gene Kaley will be his…

On Setera, only one in four hundred thousand is born possessing the cryan gene—a gene essential to the survival of the Seteran race. Jerin and the others like him are duty bound to find the match to that gene somewhere in the universe, for it can no longer be found on Setera. With no clear instructions on how this task is to be accomplished it is a daunting undertaking, like finding a needle in a haystack.

Jerin’s assigned quadrant is Earth. After twelve years of searching he is beginning to lose hope, until the answer hits him over the head with a frying pan. Now all he has to do is convince this beautiful, feisty woman to follow him to another universe in a galaxy far far away.


Excerpt:
“Maybe we ought to call for a doctor,” the policeman said. “How long has he been like that?”

“Since I called you.”

“You say he broke into the premises?”

“Yes.”

“There is no sign of forced entry that I can see.” He moved his head around perusing the area one more time. “And there is luggage in the foyer.”

Kaley nibbled her bottom lip. “I noticed.”

“You gave him a good whack.”

“Well, he’s big, and I was afraid.”

The conversation barely registered in Jerin’s head. He felt like he was dying, or maybe he just wished he was dead. His head was pounding. He tried to open his eyes, which made the room spin. He moaned and closed them tightly again. He heard a female gasp.

“He’s coming to!” She sounded panicked and yet relieved.

“So he is. Now, we can get to the bottom of this.”

He felt someone kneel down beside him. “You okay, mate?”

Jerin raised his arm and began to examine his head. “What happened?” He winced as he found a bump and gingerly touched the small mound. “Damn, that hurts.” He opened his eyes to see a constable kneeling beside him.

“What’s your business here? The lady says you broke into this residence.”

“I did nothing of the kind. The Sherwood’s hired me to take care of their property while they are on holiday. The house is supposed to be empty.” He felt his forehead crinkle in response to the discomfort speaking caused.

“That is true. Martin Sherwood notified the department that they would be away. I don’t recall them mentioning a house sitter.”

“My credentials are in my bags.”

He managed to sit up. The room began to spin. He put his palm on the floor to steady his swaying torso.

“Do you want to see a doctor?”

“No. I’ll be fine in a moment. Who hit me?”

Jerin followed the constable’s line of vision as it dialed in on the answer to his question.

“That would be me.”

Maybe it was the bump on the head, but the woman pretty much glowed. He felt euphoric until his stomach turned in on itself, and he had to fight the urge to puke.

“What did you hit me with?”

She looked like a warrior goddess standing above him on the landing leading into the living room. Her dark auburn hair was pulled back severely from her face. The long wavy strands flowed freely from the hairpiece gathering the locks together at the crown of her head. She wore a deep purple, tight fitting, one-piece Lycra bodysuit and was barefooted. Eyes the color of dark emeralds flashed a moment of defiance, and then took on a softer more apologetic light.

“That.” She pointed to his left.

He didn’t want to take his eyes from her, but his curiosity got the better of him. Cautiously he turned his head.

“That would explain it.” He smiled. “So, my warrior goddess’s weapon of choice is a frying pan?”

“Your what?” she stammered and then continued, “And no, a frying pan is not my weapon of choice. It was all I could find.”

The timbre of her voice lured his attention back to her. She sounded more insolent than contrite. Something about her spirit made him forget the throbbing in his head. He stood and chuckled. “Then, what is your weapon of choice?”

She sputtered.

“I don’t have a weapon of choice! Do you think I’m a bloody bloodthirsty gang member or something?”

“You tell me. I’m the one with the concussion.”

“I don’t think you have a concussion. You look fine to me.”

Her eyes roved over him. It felt as if she’d caressed his entire being. His body reacted as if she had. The crotch of his jeans became quite uncomfortable. His body had never reacted to a woman this way before. There was something about her that begged him to goad her into outlandish behavior.

Author Bio:
Gabriel Farago is the international, bestselling and multi-award-winning Australian author of the Jack Rogan mysteries and thrillers series for the thinking reader.

As a lawyer with a passion for history and archaeology, Gabriel Farago had to wait for many years before being able to pursue another passion—writing—in earnest. However, his love of books and storytelling started long before that.

‘I remember as a young boy reading biographies and history books with a torch under the bed covers,’ he recalls, ‘and then writing stories about archaeologists and explorers the next day, instead of doing homework. Whilst I regularly got into trouble for this, I believe we can only do well in our endeavours if we are passionate about the things we love; for me, writing has become a passion.’

Born in Budapest, Gabriel grew up in post-War Europe, and after fleeing Hungary with his parents during the Revolution in 56, he went to school in Austria before arriving in Australia as a teenager. This allowed him to become multi-lingual and feel ‘at home’ in different countries and diverse cultures.

Shaped by a long legal career and experiences spanning several decades and continents, his is a mature voice that speaks in many tongues. Gabriel holds degrees in literature and law, speaks several languages and takes research and authenticity very seriously.

Inquisitive by nature, he studied Egyptology and learned to read the hieroglyphs. He travels extensively and visits all of the locations mentioned in his books.

‘I try to weave fact and fiction into a seamless storyline,’ he explains. ‘By blurring the boundaries between the two, the reader is never quite sure where one ends, and the other begins. This is of course quite deliberate as it creates the illusion of authenticity and reality in a work that is pure fiction. A successful work of fiction is a balancing act: reality must rub shoulders with imagination in a way that is both entertaining and plausible.’

Gabriel lives in the Blue Mountains in Australia just outside Sydney, surrounded by a World Heritage National Park. ‘The beauty and solitude of this unique environment,’ he points out, ‘give me inspiration and the energy to weave my thoughts and ideas into stories which, I sincerely hope, will in turn entertain and inspire my readers.’
