Wrong place, wrong time.

Right man for the job.

Declan O’Neill’s US Marines career is over, but nothing can stop him from saving lives. When he starts an organization that aims to help people who can’t defend themselves, his first client is a woman desperate for answers. Grace Lawrence knows something happened to her roommate, and she’s certain she can trust Declan to uncover the truth…though she wonders if she can trust herself with a soldier like Declan.


Breathtaking excitement from the start! A marine has been discharged from what he thought would be his life’s work because he chose to go with his conscience in a dicey mission and now he’s left with nothing … nothing but the instinct he would bet his life on when something starts going down directly in front of him on the streets of DC. He throws caution to the wind and makes a daring rescue while also instilling the safety of passersby. Elle James is starting us off with a thrilling escapade with the first book in her new DECLAN’S DEFENDERS series. It was fast-paced with just enough romance thrown in to satisfy that quest towards happily ever after. Really enjoyed it and looking forward to the next in the series!

Former Marine Declan O’Neill has just about hit rock bottom when he arrives in Washington DC. He’s setting out to spend a few days seeing the sights of DC while he decides what to do with himself when all of a sudden he finds himself thrust into the middle of a hostage situation. He lets himself fall back on instinct and ends up rescuing the high powered victim who in turn sets him up with a new job!

Grace Lawrence is one of the bystanders that Declan protected as panic ensued in the street. She wouldn’t be standing right now if it wasn’t for him, so she’s happy to be able to reconnect and thank him for his help. She isn’t expecting to be indebted to him again, but that’s exactly what happens when she discovers her roommate hasn’t made it home and appears to be missing among some shady dealings.
