Navy SEAL Dustin Frank can handle physical pain; it’s his soul that needs mending.
After losing part of his leg in an explosion, the panic triggered by his PTSD nearly drives him over the edge. So Dustin retreats to the Eagle Ridge Ranch, a charming hideaway tucked into the Hill Country of Texas. There he finds solace in the arms of a shy beauty who reawakens desires he thought he’d lost forever—and who makes him want to lose control, just when he needs it most.
Kelcee Todd sees beyond Dustin’s scars to the real man beneath: fiercely protective, strong yet tender. She wants nothing more than to feel his battle-hardened hands on her body. However, Kelcee is not the ordinary small-town girl she appears to be. Her brother is a killer with ties to the Russian mob, and after her testimony put him in prison, he’s out and eager for revenge. Now Dustin is her best defense, even if it could cost him everything. Kelcee could never ask him to make that sacrifice . . . but she can’t stop him, either.

Dustin needs time to heal from not only his injuries, but a divorce that made him feel like less of a man. His ex couldn’t handle his injuries or his new prosthesis and she was supposed to love him. If she couldn’t get past it, how could he ever expect anyone else too. But then he meets Kelcee and she is not one to give sympathy. She’ll drive him insane and he’ll enjoy every minute of it.
“She had a way of making him feel ten feet tall. To a wounded warrior, that meant a helluva lot.”
Kelcee may have only ended up in Texas due to being in Witness Protection, but she loves her new home and all the people in it. Even the rude scarred man she can’t seem to stop thinking about. When her past finally catches up with her she’ll do anything to protect the ones she loves.
“Out! Something about you grates on my nerves!”
“What? My scars?”
“Oh, get over yourself. So you have scars. BFD.”
Their stubbornness is equally matched, but so is their love. From their sarcastic remarks to their unbridled passion Dustin and Kelcee collide in a way that will capture your attention and your heart.
Her Survivor is a heartwarming, laughter filled story with hot sex and bullet flying action. I enjoyed all of the characters. Each one brought the story to life in their own way. I can’t wait to see what happens next in the Black Eagle Ops Series. JJ and ZQ both deserve to find a little sunshine in their lives and in their hearts.
My Favorite Laughable Moment: I loved it when Dustin called to apologize for anything inappropriate he may have said and she decides to just create her own little humorous response. It was moments like that which made me fall in love with them.
