She was too innocent. He was too broken.
Jed Baker had lived through hell on earth and had the nightmares to prove it. In the last six months, his SEAL team had been slaughtered, his best friend was learning how to walk again, his career was over, he’d lost his family, his home, and his goddamn mind.
His erroneous belief that the shitstorm couldn’t get any worse went up in smoke when he met the most vexing female to ever draw breath. Ginny Lawson was the quintessential girl next door that warriors like him had been fighting to protect since the beginning of time.
It didn’t help matters that her brighter than sunshine smiles warmed his cold, barren heart and gave his tormented soul peace. She was everything pure and good and he’d walk through the fires of hell to keep her safe. Even from himself.
Could her unconditional love be his salvation?
Or will she be his ultimate destruction?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The Bad Baker Boys was intended to be a four-book series (for the four brothers), but the fans loved their father Jed so much they insisted his story be told. This story tells how he met the woman who would become their mother and how the legend of the bad Baker boys began.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Jed, the male lead (and the entire series) was inspired by a song. It described a father who could be as tough as nails or tenderhearted, depending on the situation. I fell in love with him through the course of the brother's book and my readers did as well.
The sound of the door slamming shut reverberated through the ten by ten holding cell, as loud and ominous as a death knell. The hunter had become the prey, and now he'd been caged like an animal. Jed Baker's spine stiffened in defiance at the thought. Fuck that. He'd been in tougher situations before and come out on top.
But this time he wasn't on a government-sanctioned op to annihilate the enemy. This time he didn't have the best goddamn SEAL team on the planet to back him up. This time he didn't even have the right to fight his way out of the mess he'd found himself in. If anything, he was as guilty as sin.
With that dismal thought in mind, Jed turned around as instructed, and stuck his hands through an opening in the bars. He didn't move a muscle when the handcuffs were removed, nor did he rub the red gouges where they had dug deeply into his wrists.
What he did do was level a killing glare at the dipshit deputy to reinforce the warning that he'd given the man earlier. Peters, or Deputy Fife as Jed preferred to call him, met his cold, hard gaze and took a hasty step back. Jed let his lips curl into a menacing smile, and the deputy paled to ash again.
The little shit had a right to be scared. The only thing that had saved him from the ass-kicking that he deserved was the fact that Jed couldn't afford to add resisting arrest or assaulting an officer to the charges already levied against him. If he had a hope in hell of getting out of this mess, he was gonna have to play nice.
Had it not been for the years of discipline that the Navy had instilled, he would have given in to the violent rage simmering inside and beat the living shit out of Reverend Lawson, and the hell with the consequences. But Ginny had been upset enough at seeing him arrested and slapped in handcuffs; watching him tear her father to shreds wouldn't have helped the situation.
He walked over to the cot and sat down heavily, elbows on his knees, head in his hands. Jed closed his eyes and pictured Ginny's face the last time he'd seen her. Her father had been dragging her to the car, her clothes in her arms, tears streaming down her pretty face. The fear in those big blue eyes would haunt him until his dying day.
Yeah, 'cause he really needed another demon tormenting him.
In the last six months, he'd lost everyone and everything that had mattered to him. His teammates had been slaughtered, his best friend was learning how to walk again, his career was over, and he'd lost both his grandfather and his home. Hell, he'd even lost his goddamn mind. And just when he thought things couldn't get any worse, he'd wound up in fucking jail.
How the hell had it come to this, Jed wondered in despair.
