In the Line of Fire: Hot Desert Heroes, Book 1 by Jett Munroe

Date of Publication: June 7, 2016





Their passion burns white hot. But danger is heartless and cold.


Hot Desert Heroes, Book 1


Delaney Murphy has had a stomach-fluttering, mouth-watering crush on Beck since the first time she saw him over the rim of her regular morning latte. But she's never been long on self-confidence, especially around exceptionally handsome men.


After a year of avoiding him, she's shocked when he slides into the next chair and wears down her resistance to a first date.


When Laney is laid off from her job, Marines special ops veteran Beck "Gravedigger" Townsend wastes no time hiring the quiet, auburn-haired beauty into Red Eagle Group, his security firm. Keeping her within touching distance—and under his protection.


Laney's smile and sharp intelligence light up Beck's life and heat up his bed, yet he hesitates to give her what she really wants: full access to the darkest corners of his wounded spirit. But when danger is delivered right to Red Eagle's door, the only way to save her—and their love—will be to bleed. Body and soul…


Warning: Adult language and graphic sex scenes between a man locked behind his secrets, and a woman ready to break free of her past. If you think the desert is hot, you ain't seen nothin' yet.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Beck & Delaney frequent the same coffee shop, where she visits her best friends. After avoiding one another for about a year, he finally asks her out. Delaney is shocked that he asks her, but knows that if she wants the chance, she must take it.

Delaney & Beck are HOT from the word go. She has insecurities and a past full of hurt and secrets. Can she learn to trust the one man who wants to take care of her?

Beck has a past also. With lots of hidden secrets and a ton of darkness. Can he overcome the pieces of his past that threaten their future?

I really REALLY loved this book! I felt everything - and I was rooting for this couple all along. Such a great story with a terrific HEA! Good group of characters to root for. I absolutely enjoyed every page!
