Meet Shane Laughlin, the hero of bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann's new novel Born to Darkness, in a special eBook short story about his final mission as an officer with SEAL Team Thirteen--the mission that strips him of his command, earns him a dishonorable discharge, and leaves him blacklisted and unlikely to find work in the darkly futuristic world of the mid-twenty-first century. The assignment seems simple enough: insert into a dangerous, war-torn country and take out a deadly terrorist. But from the moment that Shane injures his ankle in what should have been a routine parachute landing, it's clear that Murphy's Law--whatever can go wrong, will go wrong--is in effect. And sure enough, the situation goes from bad to worse, until Shane faces what seems like the ultimate no-win scenario. In his quest to save both an innocent woman and the SEALs under his command, he's willing to put himself in harm's way, risking everything he's worked for--his career, and even his life.Includes a preview of Suzanne Brockmann's hotly anticipated novel of romantic suspense, Born to Darkness!
With a rare blend of humor, erotic tension, and dead-on emotional truth,New York Timesbestselling author Suzanne Brockmann weaves this delightful romance of a man and woman brought together by chance, bound by choice, and in trouble deeper than they realize. Like a knight in a fairy tale, he appeared from out of nowhere and rescued her at the last moment. Now, sizing up the man who'd saved her purse and driven off her attackers, aspiring Boston entrepreneur Chelsea Spencer considered that this good-looking stranger could fit another role--not to mention a tuxedo--equally well. By the end of the week, Chelsea was scheduled to get married as a condition for earning the inheritance necessary to save her fledgling business. There was only one problem: She was short a groom. Johnny Anziano would have been satisfied with a date, but the woman he'd dashed in to save during a street mugging had proposed much more than that. For two weeks' "work," he'd earn $75,000 and a luxurious tropical island vacation. By saying a simple, meaningless "I do," he could save Chelsea one more time. But this time they were facing something a lot more dangerous than a gang of street thugs--their attraction for each other.

Because in less than a week, Chelsea Spencer was getting married. Then she asked Johnny for a favor that left the aspiring restaurateur reeling--a "business" proposition a man would be a fool to accept...and a damn fool not to. But the rules of the erotic game they were playing were dangerously shifting with every touch, every glance. Until it was no longer a game at all and winning meant risking everything. Time Enough for Love Maggie Winthrop lives with both feet planted firmly on the ground. She doesn't believe in time travel any more than she believes in comic-book heroes or the tooth fairy. So when the naked man appears in her backyard, saying he's come back from the future to change the course of history and prevent a global catastrophe, Maggie doesn't buy a word of it--despite the spark of attraction between them. But when the handsome stranger accurately predicts things no one could possibly guess would happen, Maggie starts to doubt everything she knows to be true. Suddenly the pair is thrown into a desperate battle to ward off a future filled with disaster, and Maggie must confront her destiny--where second chances for true love come at a very steep price. . . .
