Sergeant Samantha O'Hara had no idea that when she was assigned to the 1266th Transportation Company, that she would meet sexy and flirty Chief Warrant Officer Raleigh Fitzgerald. But when their eyes met sparks flew as well as the bullets.
It was against Army Regulations they knew that, but it was an undeniable attraction. She wasn't sure how long she could hold out he had a way of getting under her skin. She would do everything she could not to be another notch on his bedpost but would he let her go that easy.
Raleigh was used to getting what he wanted and right now little Miss Sam was on the top of his list. This would be an easy investigation or so he thought, until it took them from Chicago to Fort Bragg then to New Orleans; with a terror cell in the equation would either of them survive?
Shannon started her writing career while still serving in the US Army. As an NCO in the Army she lead and trained soldiers. As a company Supply Sergeant in the Army she was responsible for millions of dollars worth of Army equipment.
Warranted Pleasures is the first book of a series of 3 that will focus on Military Romance. Shannon grew up in Macomb, IL where she graduated from High School in 1987 and soon after joined the US Army. Shannon served from 1987 to 2015 during Operation Desert Storm and during Operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
In April 2015 Shannon retired from the US Army with 23 years of service as a Unit Supply Sergeant in several Army units. She is a mother of 4 children and a grandma to 1. She has been married 22 years to her husband Ken. They reside in Staunton, IL a small town along Old Route 66.
I think this is one of the times Raleigh realizes that Sam has a way with calming his soul and his demons. But he also recognizes that Sam has her own and for the first time in his life he wanted to fight for more than what was right in front of him.
When Raleigh emerged through the door his face chiseled with a mix of pain and anger but when he saw Sam it disappeared and a sense of calm came over him. She had a way of calming him that no other woman had, not even his momma. That was just one of the many things he loved about her; she was the epitome of grace and style and that was sexy as hell to him. He had to overcome her trust issues; that wouldn’t be an easy task but one he would take on.
