Deep Six Security Christmas
Release Date Nov. 21, 2017
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?

Halfway across the suite to the dining room table, Lou Ellen looked left when the bathroom door opened and steam billowed out. A leanly muscled Adonis filled the doorway covered only in a towel wrapped low on his hips. She missed a step and stumbled. The pile of clothes in her hands went flying and she stopped to stare.
He smiled, showing even white teeth, as he strode out into the living room, running his hands through his wet hair. “God, I feel like a new man,” he growled, scrubbing his hand over his square, clean-shaven jaw as he stopped in front of her.
Lou Ellen whimpered, because there was no way she could shove the words out of her mouth. Holy shit, you look like a new man too. A young man—much too young for me to be lusting over.
“How old are you?” Lou Ellen asked, the words rolling out of her mouth without permission. The corner of his lips quirked up into a sexy, feral kind of smile she felt down low as he stepped closer.
“Old enough to know what I’m doing and young enough to go the distance,” Griff replied, his eyelids drooping as he focused on her mouth.
