The Navy's Ghost
The Bad Boy's of Beta Squad
|Purchase from ARe|
A SEAL is strongest with her Team…
Ensign Christiana "Ghost" Brickman is the only female SEAL to survive BUD/S training, a real Navy Jane. But when an ambush ends her career as an active SEAL, she’s free to pursue other interests. Like her two best friends Lt. Jim "Retro" Waters and Chief Warrant Officer Todd "Magic" Hunter. She's wanted them for over a year, but never dared to approach them while in the squad.
Retro has fought his dark desires since high school, certain the need to share a woman unnatural. Magic had never considered sharing before Ghost mentions it, but it solves his dilemma of choosing between his best friend and his woman. But Retro balks at Ghost’s offer to share and retreats from both when she marries Magic.
Everyone feels Retro’s loss, but he ignores the ache of their broken connection in favor of living ‘normal.’ When Ghost and the other wives of Beta Squad are kidnapped, Retro must reevaluate how much both Ghost and Magic mean to him. And he must decide how far he's willing to go to save the woman he loves, before she becomes the Navy's ghost.

Warning twitches came too late. Muzzle flashes cascaded from all corners like fireworks, and pain seared her left thigh.
Shouts, shots, and pounding feet filled the broken silence. Her view shifted as she fell, agony stripping away coherent thought. A face appeared, features blurred by dark paint. Magic?
His lips moved but no sound hit her ringing ears. Stay with me, Ghost.
Flashes of gunfire illuminated the intense expression he wore when something went wrong, but he only had eyes for whatever he worked on and something behind her. Someone grasped her under the arms and dragged her out of the melee.
She stared up into more worried eyes. Retro?
Stay with me, Ghost. She read his request from his lips.
Can you hear me, Ensign?
She shook her head and tried to flash a thumbs-up.
“Ensign, can you hear me?”
