Fulfilling Promises (Red Starr, Book Six)
Trigger had last seen Devyn right before he'd joined the Red Starr Hostage Rescue Team, both of them agreeing to end their casual relationship. After all, it had been a temporary diversion--friends with benefits.

Their sweet passion returns full force despite the danger, but keeping an old promise might just cost him his life.
Fated Identity (Red Starr, Book Seven)
Brienne doesn't understand why Grady can't move on from his past. What she does know is that he's more emotionally distant than when they'd first met and she can't accept the friends-with-benefits play any longer. Something has to change, and fate forces her hand when her identity as a CIA special agent is leaked to the media. She and Grady must race to discover whose betrayal runs deep while their true feelings emerge in this perilous time. Unfortunately, the secrets revealed have the potential to shatter the love they've shared while on pursuit of a danger that could change everything.
Red’s Salvation (Red Starr, Book Eight)
Breathe. That’s what Starr had to keep telling herself over and over as she discovered the closely held secrets surrounding the facts of that fated mission. Her husband had been captured alive and she would move heaven and earth to bring him home, even if that meant sacrificing everything they had—including her own life.
