The first in a new romantic suspense series featuring the rugged special ops unit tucked away in Alaska's Grizzly Harbor from USA Today bestselling author Megan Crane. 

The last thing Blue Hendricks needs six months into his uneasy reentry into civilian life is trouble in the form of his old friend's kid sister, all grown up and smack in the middle of a dangerous murder investigation. But he didn't become a SEAL to turn his back on the hard stuff, and he can't bring himself to ignore Everly's call for help--no matter how much he knows he's not fit to be around the soft, vibrant woman she's become. Not after the things he's done.

Everly Campbell is desperate. When her roommate is murdered and the body vanishes, Everly fears she might be next. With no one to believe her, Everly runs to a remote Alaskan town to find a man she only vaguely remembers and his crew of ex-military brothers who could be her only hope. Blue wants to keep things all business but Everly isn't a little girl anymore and the commanding former SEAL is more temptation than she can resist.

As the men on Everly's trail draw closer, Blue will do anything to protect the woman he's starting to think of as his...


Blue Hendricks is a former SEAL and has taken on a very demanding job. He is now part of a special ops unit and is very much a hardened man. Running into his friend's younger sister after just six months on the job is not what he was ready to deal with. Why is is the gorgeous Everly Campbell involved in a murder investigation? And now she needs his help? He feels the man he has become is not prepared to deal with Everly, but Blue cannot deny her request for his assistance.

Everly is devastated. Her roommate was murdered and now the body has disappeared. Everly is certain she will be next. So what she does is to head to the the small Alaskan town where Blue and his ex-military brothers are working. While the matter is very serious at hand, Everly wants things with Blue to go beyond business, but he is determined to have none of it. True to his reputation, Blue will go to any lengths to keep Everly safe.

I adored Blue as I read the pages of this book. He was determined to be as singular as possible, although he worked well with his team. There was no doubt that he was drawn to Everly, and watching him come around was very rewarding. Everly was endearing, and was not a simpering damsel in distress. She knew what she wanted and refused to give up.

This is the first book in the Alaska Forces series and was a wonderful romance that had a nice level of suspense. Readers are introduced to several characters who will no doubt appear in future books. Having already read the second book in the series, Sniper's Pride, I definitely look forward to more.


Yes, I write under two names. But no matter the name, the story is always all mine.
I discovered my first romance novelat the age of twelve in a bargain bin at the local five and dime. It involved swashbuckling pirates having grand adventures on the open sea, a heroine with a mind of her own, and a seriously masterful hero who swept her away no matter how clever she was.
I was immediately smitten with romance and all the romantic themes I could get my hands on.
I had grand plans to star on Broadway – preferably in Evita, just like the great Patti LuPone. Sadly, my inability to wow audiences with my singing voice required a back up plan, so I launched myself into academics instead. This was not a good fit for someone who liked lounging about and reading books a lot more than dissecting them in classrooms, but it did allow me to live in England for half a decade, so I can’t complain.
Writing (and finishing!) my first book was a relief.  And actually publishing that book was one of the greatest thrills of my life.
Now I’m some 90 books in, I’m still a romance fanatic, and yes, I’m still plotting my Broadway debut.
