MISSION: Merry Christmas

Sports therapist Avery Troupe just got some bad news that’s left her jobless and homeless just weeks before Christmas. Taking a temporary assignment with an athlete who’s hiding away in the Caribbean for the holidays who has fired his last four aids might be just the answer to her problems. Sunshine, sandy beaches, and crystal blue water sounds like the perfect way to spend the holiday this year.

Drew Laskin is secretly on the mend in his island home following an injury doing something forbidden in his contract. The only thing worse than the pain is the guilt he’s feeling at having to cancel taking his nephew to see snow for the first time this Christmas.

Promising to keep Drew’s secret, Avery gets the bah-humbugging baseball star focused on an aggressive three-week plan to get him ready for training. By New Year’s they won’t ever have to set eyes on each other again. Only there’s an unexpected blizzard of Christmas magic about to change everything.

Before the Unit: The Recruiting of Kevin Banks

How does a Secret Service agent protecting the president of the United States find himself becoming a part of a federal law enforcement team that’s so secretive that their deaths are faked? The team and its support personnel, known only as “the unit”, unknown to him, have had their eye on him.

How he ended up in the unit is not supposed to be known. However, when his wife—the unit’s only female member and the team’s sniper—insists on knowing, she manages to get him to tell his story.

This prequel to THE UNIT series is that story: the human side of how a young man became convinced that protecting the president should be his goal, and how protecting the president led to him doing much, much more. It takes you step-by-step through his journey, letting you see through his eyes and his thoughts how he traveled along the way. By the end of the book, you will know how he got his curious code name—Spud—and understand what is meant by the phrase “keeping it real.”
