Joss Wood‘s Men of Mercy series centres around Caswallawn Security, a business set up by best friends Kai, Sawyer and Axl, named for their fallen friend Max.
When Kai discovers that partners want to make Mercy, Virginia their business headquarters in Inescapable, he doesn’t understand why. It’s a crazy, quaint, meddling town and its the antithesis of everything he knows and understands.
Still, all work and no play isn’t good for anyone, and when he sets eyes on feisty local baker Flick, the two of them are instantly drawn together. It’s just fun, as he’s not going to be around long, and the two of them are fine with that. Only, when an emergency means that Kai’s going to be in town for longer than he thought, they just can’t keep their hands off each other!
In Undaunted, Axl is faced with a conundrum. Regan, the little sister of his fallen SEAL teammate and best friend Max, is working for Caswallawn Security, and he can’t cope with it. He’s constantly torn between his promise to Max to look after her, and the desire that spikes every time he’s near her.
When a dangerous stalker threatens the client that she’s working with, Regan knows that she can deal with it – even if Axl keeps on hovering around, implying that she can’t. But when she eventually gives in to the passion between them, she struggles to keep the control that she’s held onto all her life…
It’s a delightful series, and I simply can’t wait to read the next book, and follow Sawyer’s romance!
