One of my favorite type of stories to read is about twins, especially twins that can switch places and cover for each other. And I love the brooding hero that gets a major chip knocked off his shoulder by a loving heroine. Throw in a murder from the previous decade, a high school sweetheart that married your best friend and a kidnapping… then you have TEXAS FAMILY RECKONING.
My "boys" are John & Brian Sloane and their story begins much earlier than the beginning of NAVY SEAL SURRENDER. The Sloanes are identical twins, but couldn’t have been more different growing up. Brian: responsible, trustworthy, a protector. John: prankster, outgoing, an adventurer. Their high school graduation brought hope of leaving their small Texas town and fading horse ranch. They were about to begin two separate lives and discover their individual dreams when a fire changed them forever. Witnesses put one of the brothers at the scene. Each knows he's innocent and tries to cover for their brother. There's the rub…they both thought the other accidentally started the fire.
After their father suffers a stroke, estranged brothers are forced to set their differences aside in order to save their family ranch in north Texas--solving a kidnapping and a twelve-year-old murder in the process.
NAVY SEAL SURRENDER
Texas Family Reckoning, book one
JOHN SLOANE RETURNS TO TEXAS TO FIND HIS FAMILY IN TROUBLE AND HIS HIGH SCHOOL SWEETHEART IMPOSSIBLE TO RESIST…
Navy SEAL John Sloane thought he'd come home to Texas to save the family ranch and reconnect with his estranged twin brother. He never expected to reunite with the girl whose heart he broke. But when Alicia Adams's daughter is kidnapped, the fearless SEAL jumps into action.
However, the off-book op poses unfamiliar dangers to John, none more risky than his feelings for Alicia. To regain her trust and protect her from the kidnappers, he'll risk his career and even his life. It all hinges on one daring scheme that could prove he's the hero she needs—or break her heart all over again….
"With Navy SEAL Surrender, Morgan launches a new small-town mystery series with strong characters and a richly developed plot with crosses and double crosses in every chapter."
