An impulsive kiss, a jealous ex, and her future in the balance. He might be exactly what she needs.

Desperate to ditch her ex once and for all, when Aspen Mesmer asks a complete stranger to kiss her, she never expects to feel an immediate connection. Despite already dealing with one soldier she can’t shake, Aspen would be a fool to ignore the intense chemistry she shares with the Delta Force operative. Even better, he shows her the respect few others offer in her male-dominated profession. It’s clear she’ll never have the camaraderie she craves with her own platoon, but maybe…just maybe…she’ll find it with Kane and his team. 

Kane “Brain” Temple isn’t the kind of man most women look at twice, so when Aspen makes her interest clear after their impulsive, explosive kiss, he’s thrilled. As a combat medic attached to a Ranger team, Aspen is pretty impressive in her own right. She might be one of the few women who can not only handle Brain’s frequent deployments, but understand exactly how dangerous his missions can be. Bonus: she’s not turned off by his nerdy tendencies. It’s as if Aspen was made just for him.

Her ex disagrees. He’s not handling Aspen’s rejection well, or her deepening relationship with Brain. Being thrown over for a Delta is humiliating, and he’ll do anything to make her regret it. 


** Shielding Aspen is the 3rd book in the Delta Team Two Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.


  • Too boring with poor dialogue to finish

    By Blue Bagelman 2020
    I forgot how bad this author can be. Both of the lead characters give each other over the top speeches (yes, speeches). Again. And again. Yes, each character has a specific amount of “quirks” to try and distinguish them from the author’s other nearly indistinguishable characters. But you can interchange them regardless. If any of these male “heros” were to give me one of their speeches when dating I would run for the hills and any sane person would as well.

    I absolutely Love this Author! I have read a lot of her books and I’m never disappointed. This may be my favorite, Kane is every woman’s dream and Aspen is a very strong woman. They are perfect for each other.

  • Being a “Brain” can be sexy!!

    By Jbean168
    This was a brilliant, engaging, page turner. Right from the first scene I was engaged. Kane “Brain” Temple is super sexy, protective and REALLY smart which makes him self conscious. Aspen is a strong, independent and know what she wants. I LOVED this story!! It kept me on my toes on the edge of my seat just the way you want a romantic suspense to be. HIGHLY recommended for romantic suspense fans!!

    By Doingthisforcoinsssssdzzzzz
    Brain finds his one, Aspen. Or rather, she finds him when she offers him $20 to kiss her so her ex gets the hint. And so it begins. Aspen is an army medic with the Rangers. She’s a determined woman who holds her own with her Rangers. Unfortunately she’s experiencing some major harassment from a guy she’d only dated twice but who’s in a position of power over her. She learns a lot about what a true team should be from Brain and his team and Brain learns a lot from her as well.
