The Sleeper SEALs are former U.S. Navy SEALs recruited by a new CIA counter-terror division to handle solo dark ops missions to combat terrorism on US soil. SLOW RIDE Only a month into his retirement from the SEAL teams, Lt. Commander Keegan McDonald was bored out of his mind working at his uncle's motorcycle repair shop. When he gets a call from the commander of a new CIA counter-terrorism unit asking for a commitment to be available for missions as needed, he grabs the lifeline with both hands, hoping to have the best of both worlds. Keegan is thrilled when his first mission comes fast, but thinks it won't be much more exciting than working at the garage. He has to infiltrate a strip club on the outskirts of the SEAL base in Little Creek, Virginia to find a possible traitor who is leaking intel to a terror group. To get inside, he signs on at the club as a bouncer, but swiftly realizes the mission won't be as easy as he thought, because Jules Lawson, a sexy waitress there seems determined to get in the way of his investigation. That puts her at the top of his list of suspects, but after watching her more closely, he recognizes the moves of a trained operator gathering information. But who does she work for? Friend or foe? His answer comes when things go south at the club and Jules saves his life, but then they are on the run together. When they stop to compare notes, they discover a much darker plot is underway at that club, one that might take out the entire east coast if the jihadis aren't stopped. But considering the self-serving reason Jules discloses for joining the FBI and taking on this assignment, can Keegan trust her to have his six and finish the mission? Or when she finds the answers she seeks, will she go rogue to exact her own revenge? Each book in this multi-author branded series is a standalone novel and the series does not have to be read in order.

The Sleeper SEALs are former U.S. Navy SEALs recruited by a new CIA counter-terror division to handle solo dark ops missions to combat terrorism on U.S. soil. Garrett Mann is burned out. Eight years as a Navy SEAL can do that to a man – especially when he’s been on one too many missions where he has lost too many of his buddies. At thirty-five, he has been fortunate not to be the next Navy SEAL with his name on the wall. Still, he can’t refuse a former commander who enlists him for one last assignment on a secret project. Doctor Haley Kingston skills will keep her alive, but only one man can save her after she is kidnapped from the hospital where she is working. Haley’s code of ethics as a doctor leaves her little choice but to help the injured leader of a terrorist group. Unfortunately, those ethics won’t be able to save her, or thousands of others, should the terrorist leader live. Haley will have to trust the last man on earth that she wants to see – the one that broke her heart. Garrett has his own problems. He will have to face his worse nightmares – see the one he loves in danger and realize that his dog tags may be the next ones given to her. Garrett will be pitted against foes determined to stop him at any cost. Can he save the woman he has always been afraid to love before she is executed? Or will his nightmares come true, and this mission will turn out to be his last? Each book in this multi-author branded series is a standalone novel and the series does not have to be read in order.

Hardened Navy SEAL Michael Stanton walked away from his career a year ago and never had any intention of returning. But when his former commander calls with the bad news that an old friend of his was murdered while undercover, Michael can't say no to helping track down the culprit. Aware that the next dead body might be his own, Michael agrees to take his deceased friend’s place at the home of a terrorist. His official mission: Find all he can to bring this crook's operation down. His personal mission: Find out who murdered his friend and return the favor. Mercy's sister was employed as a maid at the terrorist's home. When her sister disappeared, the police couldn't find any leads about where she might have gone or what happened to her. Mercy isn't nearly so complacent. She decides that, since they can't help her, she'll be the one to save her sister if it's the last thing she does. Michael and Mercy meet up inside the terrorist's house, where suspicions--and passions--flare instantly between them. Neither of them are what they're posing to be, but can they find a way to work together to uncover the truth they both need to know? Or will the terrorist get wind of traitors in his home and take care of them before they can take care of him?

The Family That Couldn't Sleep

A Medical Mystery

For two hundred years a noble Venetian family has suffered from an inherited disease that strikes their members in middle age, stealing their sleep, eating holes in their brains, and ending their lives in a matter of months. In Papua New Guinea, a primitive tribe is nearly obliterated by a sickness whose chief symptom is uncontrollable laughter. Across Europe, millions of sheep rub their fleeces raw before collapsing. In England, cows attack their owners in the milking parlors, while in the American West, thousands of deer starve to death in fields full of grass. What these strange conditions–including fatal familial insomnia, kuru, scrapie, and mad cow disease–share is their cause: prions. Prions are ordinary proteins that sometimes go wrong, resulting in neurological illnesses that are always fatal. Even more mysterious and frightening, prions are almost impossible to destroy because they are not alive and have no DNA–and the diseases they bring are now spreading around the world. In The Family That Couldn’t Sleep, essayist and journalist D. T. Max tells the spellbinding story of the prion’s hidden past and deadly future. Through exclusive interviews and original archival research, Max explains this story’s connection to human greed and ambition–from the Prussian chemist Justus von Liebig, who made cattle meatier by feeding them the flesh of other cows, to New Guinean natives whose custom of eating the brains of the dead nearly wiped them out. The biologists who have investigated these afflictions are just as extraordinary–for example, Daniel Carleton Gajdusek, a self-described “pedagogic pedophiliac pediatrician” who cracked kuru and won the Nobel Prize, and another Nobel winner, Stanley Prusiner, a driven, feared self-promoter who identified the key protein that revolutionized prion study. With remarkable precision, grace, and sympathy, Max–who himself suffers from an inherited neurological illness–explores maladies that have tormented humanity for centuries and gives reason to hope that someday cures will be found. And he eloquently demonstrates that in our relationship to nature and these ailments, we have been our own worst enemy.

Xander Miyamoto should be feeling great. It's the beginning of summer vacation, his mother has returned from a long absence, and he has learned that he is a warrior with special powers. Xander never would have guessed that the old Japanese folktale about Momotaro, the hero who sprang from a peach pit, was real, much less part of his own heritage. But instead of reveling in his recent victory against the oni, monsters bent on creating chaos, Xander is feeling resentful. What took his mother so long to come back? Why does his father insist on ruining the summer with study and training? And why is Xander plagued by nightmares every night? Maybe this whole Momotaro thing is overrated. Xander's grandmother gives him a special baku charm to use to chase his nightmares away. He just has to be careful not to rely on it too much. If he does, the baku will not only take his dreams, but those of everyone in the house, forever. Without dreams, there is no hope, no motivation, no imagination, no Momotaro. And then it would be far too easy for Ozuno, king of the oni, to wreak havoc. . . . On his second quest, Xander explores new surreal landscapes, encounters more strange and dangerous creatures, and faces even higher stakes as he learns whether or not he has what it takes to be Momotaro.
