Mountain Mercenaries Book 2
Release Date: December 04, 2018
Love is the best defense in New York Times bestselling author Susan Stoker’s explosive Mountain Mercenaries novel.
Gorgeous women don’t just stumble onto Ronan Cross’s remote property. But this one—vulnerable, victimized, and needing the kind of help only Ronan can offer—tells a story that makes his blood boil almost as hot as his need to protect her.
Since her father’s death, Chloe Harris has become a prisoner. Her own brother, a flesh peddler and low-level player in the Denver Mafia, is forcing her to sell her body for an endgame Chloe never saw coming: control over a vast fortune. Her only way out is to run—straight into the arms of the one hard-bodied man she can trust.
Defending Chloe could rain punishment down on the Mountain Mercenaries. Her brother has Mob connections and the local police in his pocket. But Ronan still has an edge—the unshakable loyalty of his deadly teammates. As well as an unquenchable thirst for retribution…and Chloe.
Dammit! She couldn’t believe she’d been fucking kidnapped. Again! She was getting sick and tired of people forcing her to go places she didn’t want to go and to do things she didn’t want to do. And she’d promised Ro she wouldn’t be kidnapped again. She hated breaking her promise, even if it wasn’t her fault.
Thoughts of Ro trying to protect her even when he was clearly hurt ran through her brain. As he’d lunged at the man who’d grabbed her, the look on his face had spoken volumes. He’d been enraged that someone had broken into his house, and even more so that they’d dared put their hands on her. But more than that, he’d looked . . . devastated. And she hated that. She wanted to tell him that he’d done everything possible to protect her. That her being kidnapped yet again wasn’t on him. It was on the assholes who’d broken in.
Then she recalled the way the man had hit Ro’s head on the tile. Ro had to be hurt badly. Had to have been knocked unconscious. There wasn’t any way he could’ve bounced back from that enough to get away . . . was there? The vicious memory—and the other possible outcome to such a beating—threatened to make her knees collapse, but she forced herself to stay standing.
Ro wasn’t dead. He couldn’t be. No way. Not after everything else he’d been through.
No, Arrow or Meat or someone would go to his house to check on them when Ro didn’t answer his phone, and they’d find him and get help.
She wasn’t even thinking about her own situation at the moment and what was in store for her. If Ro had been killed because of her, Chloe would never forgive herself.
She spun at the sound of the door opening.
