Author: J.L. Drake

Genres: Military, Romantic Suspense

Release Date: February 1, 2017


Bullets fly during a dangerous mission, and Major Mark Lopez is critically injured… 

A Blackstone soldier, Mark is transferred to the North Dakota hospital with the security clearance to treat members of the elite covert team. The pretty new nurse assigned to his case knows her stuff, but Mark soon discovers she knows more than just how to save lives. Mia Harper knows the Blackstone Code. 

Mia is a bit of gypsy and doesn’t engage much with people—but there’s something about her mysterious new patient… 

After Mark recovers from surgery, he is discharged from the hospital with orders to rest. Not that he does. Instead he rushes to México for the team’s next assignment. But when he returns to the hospital again and again with minor—and not so minor—injuries, Mia suspects he’s only coming to see her. Romance ignites, and because Mia signed a non-disclosure agreement at the hospital, Mark is able to open up more with Mia than any other woman. 

Some debts demand payment in either cash or blood… 

When someone from Mark’s past comes to him for help, old secrets start to resurface, and more blood is shed. Worlds collide and lies are exposed in an all-or-nothing underground poker game. 

Mark must put his life on the line to keep Mia safe…and to finally learn the answer to the question that’s haunted him his whole life. 

What really happened that night twenty-five years ago?

“My little icicle is pretty hot tonight! Though I do love your scrubs and chucks.”

I fell hard for these characters while reading the Broken Trilogy. It was so awesome to spend time with them again in this first installment of the Blackstone series. It reminded me of why I enjoyed them so much…sigh. ❤️

Mark is the friendly one with a sense of humor. He’s very charming and the ladies really like him. He likes the ladies too, but has not attempted a relationship due to the nature of his job. It’s not 9 to 5 and he has to be able to leave at the drop of a hat without giving details about where he’s going. Not too many women could deal with that, right?

When Mark ends up in the hospital where Mia works it’s obvious that she’s familiar with patients that require NDA’s for medical care. He and his men don’t cause her to bat an eyelash and her laid back attitude is welcome. She’s different, rocking her chucks and reading romance novels during her break. He finds himself wanting more of her attention, outside of the hospital.

As I’ve come to expect from this author, I was treated to edge-of-my-seat secrets and suspense. Add in some witty banter, spoiled pets, and undeniable chemistry for a recipe that will have you licking your lips for more. I’m totally addicted to Blackstone and can’t wait to jump into the next installment. I’m veerrryyy intrigued to find out what has Keith so distracted. I’m guessing it is a ‘she’ and I can’t wait to meet her! The line forms here…
