About Fractured Honor:
An elite warrior struggling to find his place in the civilian world.
Weary from his years on the battlefield, SF Captain Beckett Hollister has returned home to Crimson Point to take over the family business for his dying father. But adjusting to life outside the military is harder than he imagined, and being back home forces him to confront things he’d rather not face. Including the one woman he shouldn’t want and can’t have—his best friend’s little sister.
A love that was always meant to be.
Town vet Sierra Buchanan has known Beckett her entire life. She’s crushed on him for years, but because of his relationship with her family, the stubborn man refuses to see her as more than the girl he grew up with. As tragedy brings them together, neither of them realizes that the sins of Beckett’s past have come home to haunt him. When Sierra becomes the target of his unforeseen enemy, Beckett must vanquish his demons to save her.

Without a word Beckett grasped the bottom of his shirt and methodically began peeling it upward. The abrupt change in him startled her a little, but not enough to stop this. Sierra had wanted him for so long and he would never do this with her just for kicks.
She pushed up onto her elbows, her mouth going dry as each inch of his bare torso was revealed to her ravenous gaze. Up, up the fabric moved, exposing bronzed skin and sculpted muscles of a man who had spent his entire adult life honing his body into a lethal weapon.
Her gaze snagged on the design displayed on the well-developed slope of his left pec. She’d never seen the tattoo before. Molon Labe was written in an old script beneath a distinctly Pacific Northwest native-stylized eagle. Beautiful and unique. It would look gorgeous as a framed black-and-white photograph.
Then he dragged the shirt over his head, and all she could do was gape at the beauty of his muscled arms and shoulders. It had been years since she’d seen him without a shirt on down at the beach when he’d first joined the military. He’d looked sexy as hell back then, but now… Now he took her breath away.
She sat up and reached for him, eager to touch him, feel all that power beneath her fingertips. His smooth skin was hot, the right side of his ribs nicked here and there by what she could only assume were shrapnel scars.
Before she could look her fill, Beckett cupped a big hand around the back of her head and brought his mouth down on hers. He’d taken her off guard the other night. This time she was ready. Or she thought she was.
She expected him to take. To dominate. Instead he explored, slowly stretching out on top of her until he pressed her down into the cushions.
She gasped at the feel of his warm, hard body blanketing her, his weight pinning her in place as he sucked at her top lip, then her bottom one. He slid his tongue across them, delved inside gently, the velvet caress igniting a shockwave of need inside her. And then his hips settled between hers, the hard ridge of his erection pressing into her core through her jeans and she couldn’t help the moan that spilled out of her.
Oh my God…
Beckett delved deeper, stroking and caressing with his tongue while she clung to his shoulders, ran her hands up and down the ridged power of his back. She was melting from the inside out, her insides quaking. Making out with him was a thousand times better than she had dreamed it would be, and finally having him reach for her made tears prick the backs of her eyes.
