As soon as I included a private security agency of former military Green Berets who help out the detectives in Love’s Taming, I knew they would be my next series. I added BJ in Love’s Tempting and he worked for Tony Alvarez Security Agency. Of course, the readers find out who BJ really is and he ties in both the Fairfield Series, the Love’s Series, and the Alvarez Series.
This series starts with Gabe, the Silver Award Winner of the Readers Choice Award.
Alvarez Security Agency
Former Special Forces brothers-in-arms now working together to provide an elite security service in the southern city of Richland.
Gabe Malloy, dedicated to his brothers, spent his weekends with cheap booze and easy women. When some of his friends finally settled down, he wondered if he would ever find the woman of his dreams. He just never expected to encounter her in an alley.
Jennifer Lambert worked as a social worker for the city and would often take food to the elderly residents in her building. One night, in an alley behind a restaurant, she was startled by a tall, handsome man wanting to assist. Giving him the cold shoulder, she left…but dreams of him followed her long into the night.
Gabe knew the independent Jennifer was a woman worthy of knowing, but convincing the beauty that she needed him was the challenge. Raising her young brother plus the responsibilities of the elder center, had kept her from looking for love…but she took a chance on Gabe.
Now that he found her, can he keep her safe when someone threatens her and those she loves? Calling upon his brothers, Alvarez Security races to save her before it is too late.
Tony Alvarez, former Special Forces Captain, now owns his own security agency. Once destroyed by loss and grief, his business is his life. Working to keep others safe, he safeguards his heart as well. Until he met her.
Sherrie Mullins had been rescued by Tony a year earlier as part of a mission. But to her…he was the prince she had always wanted. A paralegal and CASA worker with a penchant for getting into trouble when helping others, she would need his rescuing more than once.
Tony had to prove to Sherrie that she was more than a mission to him to win the beautiful woman’s trust. Determined to not lose another love he calls upon his brothers, Alvarez Security, to save her when her investigations threaten her safety.
Vinny Malloy, dedicated to his brothers while working for Alvarez Security, loved life the way he loved his music…loud, hard, and fast. When his friends and twin brother settled down, he continued to be devoted to his easy weekend conquests…until his next mission and he discovered that opposites can attract.
Annalissa O’Brian, a shy harpist with the Richland Symphonic Orchestra was constantly being told where to perform, regardless of her desire to teach music. When her father hired Alvarez Security to escort her from a LA concert, she had no idea how liberating that decision would be…until she met Vinny.
When drugs are found hidden in her luggage, Vinny and Annalissa begin a cross-country escape, staying one step ahead of the drug dealers that are after her and falling for each other along the way. Vinny had to prove to himself that he was worthy of the innocent harpist while keeping her alive at the same time. His love gave her the strength to stand on her own. Her music gave him the healing peace that had been missing.
