The Butterfly Project

Zelda pitches her graphic novel to several big-time comic book publishers in New York City, only to have her hopes crash and burn. Circumstances leave her stranded in an unfamiliar city, and in an embarrassing moment of weakness, she meets a guarded young man with a past he’d do anything to change...Beckett Copeland spent two years in prison for armed robbery, and is now struggling to keep his head above water. A bike messenger by day, he speeds around New York City, riding fast and hard but going nowhere, his criminal record holding him back almost as much as the guilt of his crime. Zelda and Beckett form a grudging alliance of survival, and in between their stubborn clash of wills, they slowly begin to provide each other with the warmth of forgiveness, healing, and maybe even love. But when Zelda and Beckett come face to face with their pasts, they must choose to hold on to the guilt and regret that bind them, or let go and open their hearts for a shot at happiness. The Butterfly Project is a novel that reveals the power of forgiveness, and how even the smallest decisions of the heart can—like the flutter of a butterfly’s wings—create currents that strengthen into gale winds, altering the course of a life forever. #standalone

There was no kind, generous father to care for and protect her from the Vegas that exists beyond the glitz and glamour of The Strip. No wise, doting mother to look over and guide her, passing down essential lessons and leading her to the right path. And certainly no Prince Charming just around the corner, ready to rescue her from working late nights to cover steadily mounting bills. But she’s alive. Overwhelmed with responsibility she never asked for, carrying secrets and scars that haunt her, and singularly focused on an uncertain path to escape, but… alive. You’re not born to sharks without becoming one yourself. In Vegas, King is exactly what his name implies. Born into money and influence, but respected – and feared – in his own right. The privileges of wealth have afforded him many things: freedom, power, massive eligibility – while simultaneously leaving him exposed to others: betrayal, exploitation, and manipulation. But he learned. The tolls of duplicity, wrath, and vengeance have taught him to be more mindful, more shrewd, to keep himself clear of the vulnerability of certain situations, certain business deals, certain places, and certain women. Women like Asha. Like attracts like… Her poker face has kept her alive all this time, and he keeps his cards close to his chest. Neither is interested in gambling their hearts, but when they can’t stay away from each other, there’s only one choice… ante up.

    Enjoy the complete Volume 3 of the Gray Wolf Security series. Romance, Suspense, Mystery and a touch of Comedy. 5 Books. No Cliffhangers. More than 1,000 pages :) HANK I’m a cowhand. I’ve never pretended to be anything more, but that didn’t give her the right to pretend that I wasn’t smart enough to have read all those fancy books she taught her students, or that I wasn’t brave enough to have served my country. Her and her privileged background—what did she know about working for a living? What did she know about pride and bravery? But there was something about her, something irresistible. And when she got herself caught up in the middle of the very first case Gray Wolf Security’s newest office was assigned to handle—that I was assigned to handle—I couldn’t quite find a way to keep my distance from her. Would I have kept my distance if I’d known I’d have to make a choice between her and Sutherland Knight, my best friend’s widow, and my boss? What the hell have I gotten myself into? GRAINGER I grew up on a farm, but I left there the moment I could to join the Navy and then I got myself engaged to a Santa Monica beauty. The last thing I wanted was to be shipped off to Wyoming to go back to the life I'd left behind. But here I was, pretending to be married to a short, curvy woman who was nothing like the beauty who ran off with my best buddy. I don't know why Ash Grayson would think joining this new satellite office of Gray Wolf would help heal my broken heart. Yet, there was something beautiful in the simplicity of small town life. And Eve Spraberry might not be the angel the town seemed to think she was, but she was angelic enough to distract me from the life I left behind and that was kind of the point, wasn't it? LANCE Becky was a mystery from the moment I set eyes on her. I knew she was a single mother and that sometimes came with some wariness, but her resistance to my charms was extraordinarily strong. She wanted me—I could feel it in her kisses—but she pulled away when things got too deep. I could never have imagined, however, how dark the mystery really was. No one could have guessed that Becky, MidKnight Ranch's reliable employee over the past five years, was on the run from the FBI. Yet, here we were, running from an FBI agent, sleeping on the frozen ground and planning on abandoning everything we'd ever known—including her daughter. What had I gotten myself into with this woman? And how was I going to get out? Did I even want to get out? CLINTON I came here for my own reasons, the job just playing a secondary role to my prime objective. It was fortuitous when the Mahoney raid was suggested and my captain gave me the opportunity to take part. After all, I'd worked with the DEA in Florida, at least as far as he knew. Taking down a drug operation like the Mahoney Cartel should be just a walk in the park for me. I didn't anticipate it turning into a complete ambush or that she would be the one to come to my rescue. She was beautiful and resourceful, but she was a distraction. I couldn't let anything stand in the way of me and my prime objective. SUTHERLAND I’m a widow. I’m a mother. I’m a rancher. Nowhere in that description is lover or savior. But some cosmic force thought it would be hilarious to throw in the Hollywood hunk next door at the same time some massive criminal organization decides to kidnap my dead husband’s best friend, my mentor, my friend. To add to the list, someone’s been sabotaging my ranch and someone else has been stealing secrets from my office and giving them to the enemy. Or maybe it’s the same person.

Glenna Sinclair - 2017
    Enjoy the complete 4th Volume of Gray Wolf Security. Romance, Suspense, Mystery and a touch of Comedy. 5 Books. No Cliffhangers. More than 1,000 pages :) AUDRA I’d never worked undercover. But I danced in the strip clubs before I joined the Army and I knew that world. I knew I could find the evidence Joss needed to stop the men using The Red Door Gentleman’s Club to use and discard women who were desperate to bring their families to this country. The images of those poor women, beaten and abused, haunted my thoughts each time I looked at the men responsible. How could anyone be that cruel? How could anyone be that heartless? Yet, Xavier Damico was different from what I expected. Had Gray Wolf gotten it wrong this time? SHAW Joss Matthews was a badass and I wanted nothing more than to prove myself to be just as good as she was. Fresh out of the Marines, I thought I had it in the bag when Ash Grayson hired me himself. It didn’t matter that my first operation turned out to be babysitting a drunk. It was still a chance to prove myself. ERIN I don’t do well with intimacy. I don’t like to be touched. I don’t even like men to look at me. Then why was I in a bar, setting some guy up to see if he could be faithful to his wife? I was relieved when the assignment was over and he was out of my life. Yet, he wasn’t. He kept showing up. First at a restaurant and then in my house. And the story he had to tell…either I was about to be a hero, or I was about to magnificently lose my job. KARI I walk into that room expecting a stranger, someone I can manipulate, maybe even drug. Instead, there stands my neighbor, but he’s not the same, kind, gentle man I thought I knew. And we're caught up on this case together, both working toward a separate end, both aware of the consequences should our covers be blown. Can I trust him? Can trust even exist in this screwed up world? JOSS Eleven years ago, Joss Grant Hernandez Matthews lost her son and husband in a tragic accident after a drunk driver made the choice to get behind the wheel. Four years later, she found a good man who brought her out of her grief and gave her a new purpose. But that accident has come back to haunt her. The family of the drunk driver want her to pay for what they see as his tragic death by his own hand. Her daughter is missing and her husband has become a target of this same enemy. Joss is carrying the weight of it all on her own shoulders, unsure of who she can trust and unwilling to place anyone else she loves in danger. They’ve all lost so much. How can she ask them to risk more? However, Joss is forgetting one thing. Gray Wolf is a family. And family doesn’t let family walk alone.

Or am I too broken to be the man she needs me to be? Book 2: Rhett He doesn’t know who he is. A year ago he woke in a hospital with no memory of his name, his occupation, or how he got himself in that predicament. All he had was a security badge from an unknown business and a duffle bag full of money. I was supposed to find his past for him. The thing was, I found it characteristically impossible to think whenever I looked at him. God knew what he was doing when he made Richard Chandler. Or was his name Xander King? Book 3: Kevin I couldn’t believe it was her voice on the other end of the phone. She was the love of my life, my bride at the ripe old age of eight. But she crushed my heart and my reputation the moment we reached high school. We hadn’t spoken in nearly nine years, yet I was the first call she made when she needed help. Her sister was getting married and Kirsten wanted to stop the wedding. She knew I’d do anything for her baby sister, but she didn’t anticipate that I’d take Dallas’ side over hers. As fun as it was to annoy her, I hadn’t anticipated the rush of old feelings that would come out as we spent the weekend trapped together.

When I was sent to find Rosalie Matthias, I went with the understanding that she was off her meds and she needed someone who could handle her case with diplomacy. I didn’t expect to run into an aura reading, spiritual spouting, alien believing woman who would make it completely impossible for me to stay on task. Karma Meyers was one of the most beautiful women I’d ever met, but she had more secrets than the aliens she was trying to prove existed. Book 5: Amelia How cliché is it, a woman in love with her boss? I hate clichés, but who wouldn’t fall for a guy like Hayden Dubois? He wanted the world to think he was made of stone, but everyone knew about the grief he suffered at the death of his love. What was it about grief that made a man more of a romantic figure? That was until Rowan McGregor walked into my life. Covered in blood and demanding protection, he insisted that the woman found dead in his bed was not there by his own hand. Having the blood of an innocent woman on his hands didn’t stop him from being a cocky ass who thought he knew everything about me with one glance at the fangirl pics on my fridge. I hated him, hated everything about him, but then we were on the run, dependent on one another, acting as husband and wife, and…what is it they say? One thing led to another… Book 6: Hayden Nope.
