ALWAYS FAITHFUL is a fast-moving, emotionally charged mystery that takes off like a
jet plane. Rowan's toughness is a shell she's built to protect her heart from what she feels
is Phillip's betrayal, while Phillip has devoted the past nine years to forgetting Rowan,
becoming the best military lawyer he can be, and not letting anyone into his heart again.
With nail-biting suspense and palpable sexual tension, ALWAYS FAITHFUL is an entertaining tale.
Although the villain is fairly apparent from first introduction, there are some heart-stopping
scenes at the climax. Great characters, a fresh plot, and a poignant love story make
ALWAYS FAITHFUL a terrific way to spend an evening. ~ Romance Reviews Today, Jani Brooks

From Charlie’s battered old truck, Staff Sergeant Rowan
McKinley studied the steel warehouse building from every angle she could see.
Not an easy task with all the security lights out. There wasn’t another person
around or any sign of another vehicle. No activity whatsoever. Everyone and
everything was tucked away for the night, as it should be at midnight.
She glanced at the man beside her. Night kept her from seeing
his face clearly, but she knew it would be lit with excitement. For lack of a
better term, she could almost smell the testosterone in the air. Or was that
beer? She’d swear he’d been drinking, even if she didn’t want to admit that to
As for herself, it was all Rowan could do to keep from shaking.
What in the world had she been thinking to come here? She was a legal
specialist, not an MP, not CID, and certainly not NCIS. Her stubborn
determination to prove herself right had gotten her into this mess. A dangerous
mess at that. And if Charlie had been drinking, she was even more stupid
to get into a vehicle with him.
Rowan wiped her sweaty palms on her camouflage trousers. Her
heart pounded so loud she’d swear he could hear it. Where were her priorities?
She had a child to think about. Why should she care if someone was stealing
government property? She reported her suspicions to anyone and everyone who
would listen. Why in the world couldn’t she leave it at that? She’d done her
But, no. Like a modern-day Don Quixote, she had to go tilting
at windmills. All things considered, her sanity was just as questionable as that
foolish old coot.
She studied the hulking building once more. No security lights.
No guards walking their posts. It looked quiet enough, safe. It should have put
her at ease, but it only set her nerves on edge.
"Charlie, I don’t like this. It doesn’t seem right. I think we
He laughed softly and gave her a playful slug in the arm.
"You’re being silly." Drawing his pistol, he slid from the truck and silently
made his way to the building.
Easy to be brave when you’re a walking giant.
Rowan frowned. The door wasn’t even locked. Now that was odd.
Too easy. A trap? Possibly. And Charlie was too gung-ho or too inebriated to
notice, or maybe he embraced the challenge, the danger, the rush.
Rowan glanced around. Here she was a sitting target.
She searched the floorboard for something to use as a weapon.
Nothing, not even a floor mat. For one brief second she considered cranking the
engine and getting out of there. Rowan dismissed the cowardly plan. She would
not leave Charlie. They were safer together.
Curling her fingers around the doorknob, she shoved her
shoulder against the truck door. It groaned as it opened, announcing her
presence to anyone who might have doubted it before.
Crouching low, Rowan ran to the building and ducked inside.
Darkness enveloped her. Pitch black. Smothering. Her heartbeat thudded in her
ears. Panic clutched at her stomach. In vain she fought the claustrophobia, the
overwhelming fear, the need to battle her way free, and the urge to scream out
Arms wrapped around her midsection, she stood frozen and lost.
She heard scuffling off to her right. There was a blur, a sense rather than
sight of movement. Then pain shattered through her head.
