A high-octane Navy SEAL romance thriller!
Years ago, Admiral Thane (Ghost) Austen and Kayla (Snow White) Austen, walked through the smoke and mirrors of battle and survived. They had two children. Sloane is their daughter. Like her father, she’s stubborn, resilient and loyal. Twenty-three-years old and assigned to N.A.B Coronado, Seaman Austen serves her country like her parents once did.
Mustered to the Grinder one afternoon, she’s chosen for an exercise. Partnered with a rugged but handsome Navy SEAL. They’re hustled to Warner Springs where Special Forces conduct S.E.R.E. training. Fifteen couples will be tested in Operation: Skirt’s Down. Sloane and Damon are promised a seven-day vacation in Club Hell. Caged. Hunted. General Northcott, the man in charge, has an ulterior motive. Driven to prove a point and enact revenge. What’s at stake? Everything!
When Ghost receives a call from Sloane screaming, “Delta it’s for Romeo.” The retired admiral knows his daughter is in danger of paying the price for his sins. But one man will fight to the death to keep Sloane alive. Her partner, Lieutenant Damon Stone. And Sloane will fight for his survival, because she’s the daughter of a legend and combat is in her blood.
My Review *****
Dark, pulse pounding action! Code Name: War of Stones, the last (maybe) book in the Warriors Challenge series grabs you by the ovaries (since we don’t have balls) an squeezes hard. Put away the coffee and grab a glass of wine (maybe a whole bottle) because you’ll need something to calm your nerves. Block off enough time to read it cover to cover, or you’ll be cursing Ms. Waters in the morning like I am today, bleary eyed and hungover from lack of sleep, because you aren’t putting this book down until you turn the last page. Pesky kids want to eat? point them to the peanut butter and bread. Phone rings? Leave a message, I’ll get back to you after I get out of hell with Damon and Sloane.
Sloane is heroine like no other- strong, brave, determined, sassy; with a never say die attitude, even when death is knocking at her door in his haunting hood, scythe aimed at her neck.
Damon Stone is a panty melting hero. The epitome of a seasoned warrior; protective, intelligent, and deadly.
War of Stones takes you to another level of suspense- drawing you into the story so thoroughly your skin crawls, your adrenaline surges, you swell with pride and cry bitter tears.
This is the MUST READ novel of the year. Whether you’ve followed the series from the beginning or are joining the teams for the first time, it is an experience you will never forget.

Welcome to Kodiak Point, where the wildlife might wear clothes, but animal instinct rules the heart.
My Review *****
Captured my heart
Wolf’s capture is full of action and mystery. Great sexual tension, hot love scenes, and a bit of humor, to lighten things up. Awesomeness!
When the great war between the Redwoods and the Centrals occurred three decades ago, the Talon Pack risked their lives for the side of good. After tragedy struck, Gideon Brentwood became the Alpha of the Talons. But the Pack’s stability is threatened, and he’s forced to take mate—only the one fate puts in his path is the woman he shouldn’t want.
Though the daughter of the Redwood Pack’s Beta, Brie Jamenson has known peace for most of her life. When she finds the man who could be her mate, she’s shocked to discover Gideon is the Alpha wolf of the Talon Pack. As a submissive, her strength lies in her heart, not her claws. But if her new Pack disagrees or disapproves of fate’s choice, the consequences could be fatal.
As the worlds Brie and Gideon have always known begin to shift, they must face their challenges together in order to help their Pack and seal their bond. But when the Pack is threatened from the inside, Gideon doesn’t know who he can trust and Brie’s life could be forfeit in the crossfire. It will take the strength of an Alpha and the courage of his mate to realize where true loyalties lie.
What could a rough, tough cowboy and a beautiful ex-nun have in common?
Not much, but opposites attract.
Oh, hell yeah, they do.
Denver Bolden thinks the sun rises and sets in Bryn Harmon’s smile and he’s bound and determined to make her his. Once he’s tasted her kiss, he can think of little else. The woman is a fascinating mix of innocence and sensuality. Wooing her becomes his obsession and the passion they share is something he’s unwilling to give up.
Regardless of the cost.
As secrets are revealed and mysteries arise, it seems their chance at love might slip away.
Could a miracle bring them together?
Only heaven knows.
This series is a new venture for Natasza Waters and I loved it! A little humor, a lot of suspense, and an eloquent writing style that beautifully draws the reader into the story.
“She smiled when it occurred to her that no matter if she tilled every last square inch of the thousand acre ranch, she’d never have to worry about an IED or daisy chain hidden in the dirt. There wasn’t a sniper perched in some tree branch, steadying his aim. Her heart ached for the angst and unrest in the Middle East where the citizens couldn’t trust their neighbors. The night held dangers with raids by ISIS warriors. Fear captured more space in the villagers’ conscious, never allowing peace a chance.
Afghanistan, where she left her last FST post, was a country of tears.”
I’ve read all of Ms. Waters books and I can safely say I think this is her best work to date, in a string of 5 star novels. How do you top the best? I can’t wait to see in the next one.
