Embattled Ever After WARNING- This is the fifth book in the Lost and Found series and as always, there are ups and downs. Readers need to be aware that I deal with PTSD issues, suicide, and miscarriage. But, as always, there is a happy ending!!!
Duncan Wilde has avoided long-term relationships very well since his fiancée left him wounded in the hospital years ago. That one harsh lesson—that he needed to guard his heart—has stuck with him for years. Besides, he's a beat up old Marine well past his time for love. The fiery young doctor from Kansas City seems to think otherwise, though. Too bad she's so damn young.
Alex Hartfield grew up as a military brat, but she sees something in Duncan that makes her think of permanence and starting a family. She wants someone to come home to every night and love, and he's the first man that makes her guarded heart race with hope and excitement.
Now… as they try to understand the dangerous incidents going on around them, they fight to find common ground. But it seems as if fate has some tricks up her sleeve.
I urge you to read the books of the Lost and Found series in order! Each can be read as a standalone, but you get a much better experience by taking them all in.

Short excerpt- While he waited for the truck to warm he grabbed a banana from the browning bunch and took a bite. He really did need to get a few groceries at some point.
Alex came into the kitchen and he paused mid-chew, stunned at what a blow dryer and a little make-up did for her. Now, he liked the natural look as well as any man, but there was something about knowing that a woman had taken care with her appearance just for you that made a man melt. When she met his eyes, she knew he was affected and a slow smile spread her dark pink lips. Then she crossed the kitchen to him and holding his gaze, leaned down to take a bite of the banana in his hand.
Duncan swallowed, his dick warming with arousal.
“Hm. I usually like them a little more firm.” She winked at him audaciously, then headed out the door to the garage.
Damn, that woman was going to kill him. Ridiculously, though, he grinned and followed her out the door.
