You met Tal and Wyatt’s in Tangled Pursuit, book 2 in the Delos Series. Read their continued story.

Captain Talia Culver risked her heart again for Navy SEAL Wyatt Lockwood. The brave, cocky Texan was worth the risk and Talia couldn’t be happier. Still recovering from injuries she received from her last mission in Afghanistan, Wyatt whisks her away to meet his family on their sprawling Texas ranch. But things don’t go as planned when Wyatt hears the local gossip that his drug dealing ex-friend is out of prison and planning a drug run across the Lockwood ranch. Wyatt wants to enjoy some hard-earned down time with Tal, but he can’t ignore the danger at his backdoor.

As Wyatt plans a dangerous operation to catch the drug dealers, Tal fears she could lose the man she loves.

“How’s that ankle of yours feelin’?” Wyatt asked Tal. He had her sitting comfortably on his old brass bed, leaning against the headboard, pillows behind her back, her bad ankle over his thigh as he gently massaged it.
“Mmm, better,” Tal said, closing her eyes.
“Did you take your medication?” Wyatt asked her, sliding a glance her way. She had just come out of the bathroom after soaking in the old claw-foot bathtub. Her black hair was still up in a mussed topknot. She looked tired, and he knew traveling with her bum ankle had taken a toll on her. Tal would never complain about pain. It just wasn’t part of her makeup. As a Marine Corps sniper, she’d always worked hurt. It might not have been broken bones like this, but, as a mountain goat climbing around in the Hindu Kush of Afghanistan, out in brutal weather and other harsh conditions, bruises, cuts, scrapes, and even a strain were tolerated so she could successfully finish a mission.
“No, you know I didn’t.”
Wyatt chuckled and continued to tenderly ease the swelling out of her once-crushed ankle. He did this every night when they were home, and he especially wanted to do it when he was on the road with her. “I think we did a little too much walking around the ranch this afternoon. Your ankle is really swollen. Sure you aren’t in pain?” He knew she was and saw her lips flex at his needling her about it.
“I’ll take some ibuprofen to get you off my back, Lockwood.”
Chuckling, he said, “I’m such a pest to you, Ms. Culver.” The corners of her lips lifted and she opened her eyes.
“You are a royal pain in the ass sometimes, on that we agree.”
“But,” Wyatt said lightly, moving his fingers down from below her knee to her ankle and then beginning to massage her foot, “there are other times, Ms. Culver, you really enjoy having me around.”
“That is very true, cowboy. Good thing those times outweigh the pain-in-the-ass times, huh?”
Seeing the sparkle of teasing in her green eyes, Wyatt moved his hand over the red flannel robe she wore on top of her white flannel pajamas. “Indeed.” He felt her begin to relax as he pushed the fluid out of her ankle area. “Feelin’ a little better, darlin’?”
“Oh,” she sighed, “much . . . I don’t know what I’d do without you, Wyatt. You spoil me rotten.”
“I’m better than any meds you aren’t taking.”
“I don’t like drugs, Wyatt, so don’t climb on that bandwagon tonight, okay?”
“Miss Grumpy, are we?”
She couldn’t stay irritable long with Wyatt around. He had that Texas good-ol’-boy attitude, was a terrible tease in a nice way, and inevitably lifted her out of her low mood. “Hey, getting serious for a moment?”
“I’m always serious where you’re concerned,” Wyatt drawled, giving her a warm look.
She snorted. “Yes, you’ve been acting like a mother hen with me all day today. Shadowing me, keeping a hand on my elbow or against the small of my back in case I might stumble and fall.”
“Ah, the truth comes out now.” His lips quirked.
“I’m not going to use a cane while I’m here, Wyatt. That’s all there is to it. And you need to let me walk on my own and stop hovering around me as if I’m going to fall on my ass any second.”
He moved his fingers to her arch, hearing her groan with pleasure. “Okay, I’ll stop being a mother hen with you. Fair enough?”
“Yes . . . thank you.”
“My family does not see you as a weak woman, darlin’. They know you’re one tough Marine.”
“I just hate showing up like this,” she muttered.
“We all have our prideful moments,” Wyatt said amiably, working each of her toes, hearing her groan with more pleasure. Tal loved to have her feet massaged.

Lindsay McKenna lives her life as a risk taker, and it shines through the books she loves to write: romance, adventure and suspense. She started writing at age thirteen and continues to hone her writing skills to this day. She sold her first romance novel in 1981. The rest is history.

Because she went into the military, this experience became the backbone of her writing—she is credited with writing the first military romance novel (Captive of Fate, 1983, Silhouette Special Edition) and has created a thriving sub-genre within the romance field! As a New York Times Best Selling author, she has sold 23 million books and in 32 foreign languages in her career thus far. Her many experiences in the U.S. Navy are backdrop for her understanding of the military in general, and also her very successful Morgan’s Mercenaries, which is an ongoing series in Silhouette to this day! Forty-five books strong!

Lindsay has gone Indie in 2015 and has created a new family saga on par with Morgan’s Mercenaries. It is known as the DELOS SERIES. There will be paperback and eBooks created under Blue Turtle Publishing, her company for her fans. Readers who love Morgan and his family are bound to fall in love with the Culver family. Delos is romantic suspense, which Lindsay is well known for. It took her five years to create and bring DELOS to her readers. It was worth the wait, but we’ll let you decide that.

Ex-Navy SEAL Cav Jordan faces danger daily in his job as a security expert. He even faced down a gang of South American drug dealers to protect his fiancée, Lia Cassidy. So why is he terrified of meeting her parents? Having lived through his own horrible childhood Cav can’t understand the situation is he is walking into. Lia just wants him to meet her parents. Why does this feel like the fight of his life?

“ Steve Cassidy. Welcome, Mr. Jordan., We owe you a lot.” He gripped Cav’s hand, and choked out, “ You saved Lia’s life.Thank you…” For a moment, Cav was stunned by the sudden kindness emanating from the farmer’s expression who was thin, wiry, sunburned and physically sinewy from the daily work he did.Gripping the farmer’s calloused roughened hand, he said, “ Nice to meet you, sir.And I was just doing my job.Call meCav?” “ Call me Steve.” He clapped him heartily on the back, still clasping his other hand.“ And you’re a hero to us, son. Nothing less.” Steve released him, keeping his hand on Cav’s broad shoulder, watching Lia clinging tohe mother, both of them in a tight, loving embrace with one another. Embarrassed by such a show of emotions, Cav murmured, “ Thank you, sir.”
Steve gave him an assessing look.“ Just Steve willdo.” “ Yes, sir….I mean, okay,” Cav stumbled. It was very different meeting people who were strangers, but this was Lia’s parents and he didn’t want to fuck this up for her.Awkwardly, he stood there, watching tears roll down Susan’s face.He wasn’t sure that Lia wasn’t crying too, such was the tight bond they shared.Obliquely, his mind leaped backward.Cav remembered the times his mother had cried.But they were tears of pain.Tears mingled with blood from her nose, a split lipor both after his father got done beating her up.How many times had Cav cried alone in his room wishing she would run away with him from his monster father? Steve clapped him on the shoulder.“ Let’s us guys go find your luggage, huh?” and hesmiled a little. Good idea!“ Yes, sir—“ Steve laughed and patted him warmly on the back. “ You’re staying a week with us, Cav.I’ll work that military side you out of you by then.Come on, let’s hunt up that luggage for our you and our Lia, eh?” There was a male gruffness mingled with warmth to Steve that made Cav want to open upto the man.He had a deeply weathered face, his blue eyes the same color as Lia’s.The woman he loved had her mother’s same color of hair, her father’s sparkling, mischievous looking eyes and her smile.There was benevolence to Steve Cassidy and Cav automatically found himself wanting tobe close to this man who exuded a male gentleness he rarely found inany man.“ Thanks for coming to pick us up,” Cav said, noting that the baggage from their flight would be spit out by Carousel Two.
“ We’ve been looking forward to seeing you two,” Steve said, standing with his hands onhis hips, watching the luggage starting tobe dropped off the conveyor belt.“ Did you have a good flight?” “ Yes.It was quiet. That’s all I ask.” “ We don’t travel much,” he said.“ With a farm, you can’t walk away from it, so I’m glad you came for a visit.” Cav felt Steve’s genuine sincerity.He hooked a look over his shoulder, seeing Lia and her mother talking animatedly with one another as they walked toward them.Susan had given Lia her smile and her beauty, no question.He liked that the mother had hooked her arm around Lia’s waist and they walked closely, their affection for everyone to see.He knew Lia’s affection himself and already, he could see how happy she was at being home with her parents once more.They breathed even more life into her, if that was possible.Compared to the ghost of a person she was in Costa Rica months earlier, Cav was stunned at Lia’s natural radiance.She was sunshine to his darkened soul who craved her. “ Uh oh,” Steve murmured, grinning ashe turned.“ I’m about to get attacked.” For a moment, the word put Cav on instant guard. But ashe turned, he saw Steve opening his arms as Lia flew into them, her arms wide open, joy radiant on her face as she clung to her father.A lump formed in his throat ashe watched Lia being swallowed upby the big man who kissed her hair, kissed that cheek that had that deep scaron it, his eyes only for his beaming daughter in his arms.His gaze flicked to Susan, who stood a few feet away, teary eyed, smiling, her lower lip trembling as she watched Lia with her doting father. It hurt toswallow and Cav turned away, remembering too much of the twisted and distorted family he’d somehow managed to survive.He’d never known a moment of affection from his father.Only his fist.His hatred.His anger always aimed at him.
