Midnight Promises, the 5th book in the Midnight series, has just come out. If you read it, I hope you enjoy it.
Each Midnight book is a romance but it is also a component in the creation of a big, extended family, the family of Alpha Security International. ASI is a company made up of former Navy SEALs and just as the men were teammates and had each other’s backs in the military, now they are teammates and have each other’s backs in civilian life.
The men making up ASI are without a biological family. The Navy became their family. Once out of the service, and members of ASI, they have a ready-made family in their colleagues. Once they fall in love, that’s it for them, so they have their nuclear family and the extended ASI family.
Their women, too, are friends among themselves. They listen to each other’s problems, are fiercely loyal to each other and always help with problems (while consuming vast quantities of chocolate and white wine, essential components in problem-solving).
So when John found Suzanne, and Douglas found Allegra, and Bud found Claire, and Jacko found Lauren and now when Metal finds Felicity, they form not only strong couples but a strong network.
Isn’t that what we all want? To live our lives among people who love us, people we can love right back. The rest of the world can be—and often is—hostile, but the Midnight people have their enchanted circle of close friends. Life has and will continue to throw harsh stuff at them. Luckily, the men and women of the Midnight world are strong, resilient and smart.
But sometimes your own strength and smarts aren’t enough and that’s where their circle of friends is an entity that is greater than the sum of its parts.
Every member of the Midnight clan will help you bury the body, will stand fast with you against the world, will provide a shoulder to cry on and will give unquestioning loyalty.
To me, that is the best possible life you can live. With your life partner and soul mate by your side, doing work you love, among true friends. Love and friendship, the two greatest things in the world.
Do you have a circle of friends that are like family? I hope you do and I hope you realize how precious they are!
Happy reading! Lisa Marie Rice
When a gorgeous, bleeding woman on the run falls into the arms of Sean “Metal” O’Brien, the former SEAL medic knows just what he can do. Heal her. Tend to her. Keep her safe.
What he can’t seem to do is keep his guard up. Something about the haunted, hunted beauty knocks down all his defenses.
Felicity Ward is no stranger to secrets. Raised in the Witness Protection Program, her whole childhood was a lie. But she couldn’t have known that her family’s secrets—secrets she didn’t even know she was keeping—could spark a nuclear war.
And nothing could have prepared her for the tough, sexy warrior who first saves her life and then vows to protect it, no matter what.
