Sanctuary – a covert and private organisation, working outside the law to provide help for those in need.

 


Morgan Drake witnesses a murder in an alleyway. He is the only person who can give evidence in prosecuting the cop responsible for the crime. When the FBI safe house where he’s being held is compromised, he follows the instructions of his agent in charge and runs. Nik Valentinov works for Sanctuary, a foundation that offers witness protection when FBI security is questionable.

When Morgan’s handler sends him to Nik for safety, neither Morgan nor Nik could imagine that two weeks alone in a cabin in the woods could start something more. Something way more than just trying to keep Morgan alive. Something that makes their heart race more than danger. Love.


Dale MacIntyre, former Navy SEAL, works for Sanctuary. He’s the acting handler for a member of the Bullen family’s inner circle. He’s close to obtaining the evidence he needs to prove Elisabeth Costain’s death was ordered by them… until someone gets in his way.

Joseph Kinnon, active Navy SEAL, is back on U.S. soil for the first time in months, and he’s told the tragic news that his stepsister is dead, gunned down in an alley by an unknown assailant. He’s determined to find out who murdered her…until someone gets in his way.

They both want the same thing but have different methods of accomplishing their goals. They both want the Bullen family brought to account, but one wants justice and the other wants revenge. What happens between them, however, has nothing to do with
either.


Beckett Jamieson, AKA Robert Bullen, has been rescued by Sanctuary from a situation in which he nearly died and is left temporarily blind.

Doctor Kayden Summers is the Sanctuary operative assigned to look out for him.

It soon becomes clear Beckett is the key to evidence left by his mom. Evidence that may well destroy the Bullen family. The two men become involved in a critical retrieval situation and when bullets start to fly there is only one thing between Beckett and death. Kayden.


Adam is given an assignment – to work with a man he hates. The same man that didn’t trust him two years before and destroyed their relationship in a single day.

Lee is adamant that he needs to understand why Adam betrayed the Bureau and the Bullen case is the perfect cover to get back in his ex lover’s life.

Against the backdrop of Sanctuary and the Bullen case can they both realise not everything they saw was real …


Manny Sullivan is the backbone of Sanctuary. He has his fingers in every pie and when he spots Josh Headley where he shouldn’t be, it is Manny who goes in and rescues him.
Josh is in Sanctuary witness protection after his dad turns on the Bullens. Not only is his dad a murderer but his ex is a liar who was using him for information. With his skill in information retrieval, he hopes to make a contribution to the solution.

What started with the death of Elisabeth Costain is drawing to a close and Josh and Manny are in the middle of it all.

When Manny risks his life could it finally be time for Josh to risk his heart?


Jake spends every Christmas at Sanctuary One. From a small child the cabin was home for his family in the special season, and with the third anniversary of his dad’s death approaching he arranges for Kayden, Beckett and himself to meet at the cabin a few days before Christmas.
When a snowstorm means Kayden is blocked in NY with Beckett, Jake ends up in the cabin on his own.

Sean is being hunted and the only place he can run to is somewhere mentioned in an old journal – the original Sanctuary Cabin. The cabin is no longer in official use but it would be a good place to heal and take stock of just what the fuck is going on with his life.

Neither man is prepared for being stuck together for an entire week, nor for the secrets that threaten to get them both killed.


It is the day after New Years and Dale is en route back to Albany in a private jet with Emily Bullen. She is coming back home after turning states evidence on her husband Senator Thomas Bullen.

What no one factored in, not Sanctuary or the FBI, was the lengths Griffin Ryland would go to in the effort to protect himself.

Joseph finds out Dale is in trouble and it is only with the help of his team of SEALs that he can make sure Dale is safe and that Griffin Ryland can’t cause any more trouble.

A snowy New Years, a deserted airport and a hostage situation with people already dead and suddenly the worlds of Sanctuary and the SEALs collide, with terrifying consequences. Then, two weeks alone at a resort, falling deeper in love leave the two men with decisions to make and suddenly there is the chance to make
forever a possibility.


Everyone wants Chicago cop, Simon Grant, dead. Armed with an address, he is on the run and heading for Sanctuary, only to end up at the wrong end of a gun. Is it possible the tall amber-eyed man holding the gun is actually going to be able to help him?

Cain Brodie is in charge of Sanctuary’s new Chicago office, C-Tower. His well organised administration day takes an unexpected turn when he has a man wanted for murder right in his gun sights. Thrust into a situation he has no control over suddenly he needs to be the one in control.

Accidental or not, Simon and Cain have to be the heroes of their own stories, just to stay alive.

Rainbow Gold Reviews 4.5/5 “… Romance at it’s best …”

You will fall in love with the characters and the story will warm your heart, not rip it apart. The journey of these two and their families finding their way together is beautiful. There are many serious challenges in their way, but they overcome them together. For me the characters and their struggles and dreams felt realistic, but the author was able to give them the perfect place and perfect people to understand, heal and complete them. The perfect marriage between realism and fantasy. Romance at its best.

Jewel Book Love 4/5  “…Sweet and enjoyable, a good start in a promising series. …”

I loved the description of the Ranch and the Montana’s landscape, I could really picture the surrounding.

Due to the length of the book all the characters have been developed only to a certain extent, but in a satisfying way nonetheless. The interaction between them is engaging. The main focus is on Jay and Nate relationship and the other family’s members complete the whole story, and some plot lines are left open for future books instalments.

A Bibliophile Anonymous Book Reviews 4/5 “… This book is like wine: it gets better with time….”

This book is not like tequila, that goes straight to your head and then you have a horrible hangover, and a couple of naked pictures as evidence to remember the horrible decisions. This book is like wine: it gets better with time. And you just have a feel good moment once you read that last line. Loved it! It’s going in my reread list like yesterday.
Bayou Book Junkie 4/5 “… sparks fly between them as the attraction grows...”

I liked Jay’s family, his sister Ashley and her kids, and I loved how they integrated to life at the ranch so easily and got along with Nate’s brothers, Gabe and Luke.

Archeolibrarian 5/5 “…This is a slow burner of a book, which is more than fine with me as I absolutely loathe insta-love!…”
 

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I loved how every relationship is covered, secondary characters are fleshed out, and none of the situation is confusing (unless it is intentional!).

Bookaholics Not-So-Anonymous 5/5 “…This book wasn’t just about the love story between Nate and Jay; it was also about family…”



If you’re looking for a well-written romance with a quietly intense but sweet cowboy and a protective and caring city slicker wary of horses, I recommend you check out Crooked Tree Ranch by RJ Scott.

Southern Babes Book Blog 5/5  “…A great start to another amazing series….”

Nate never in his wildest dreams expected to have feeling for Jay. He tried to fight it, but sometimes you just cant keep fighting what you really need.

This is a great sweet story. An i cant wait to see what happens with the rest of the family at Crooked Tree Ranch!

 

Jim’s Blog 5/5 “…This book is a definite 5 on the 1-5 scale. You won’t be disappointed…”As is typical with RJ Scott’s writing, the characters are very complex and very real. Readers won’t realize this off the bat because their complexity is slowly revealed.

Bella’s Blog “…I highly recommend that you read this amazing story…”

R.J.Scott has given us such a strong storyline with some amazing characters and the writing was amazing. This will grab you and pull you in and keeps you there from start to finish and will leave you wanting more.

The Geekery Book Review 4/5 “…Cowboy meets City…a great start to any story if you ask me!…”

I really loved Nate and Jay, and their journey. It was a very well developed story, with both men learning from each other. This was one of those reads where I just didn’t want it to end, I loved them!

QUEERcentric Books “…a sweet, angst-free read with a few cowboys thrown in…”
I wouldn’t necessarily say that he tricked Nate, but he definitely knew how to press Nate’s buttons until Nate threw caution to the wind.

Padme’s Library 5/5 “…boy do they have that push and pull chemistry that had me hooked from beginning to end…”  

 
The secondary characters had me just as intrigued. Nate’s brothers, Jay’s sister, niece, and nephew; there were more than a few times that I wanted to shake that niece of his to make her wise up but the truth is, she’s a teenager and that’s what they do, aggravate and warm your heart all in the same breath.

Hellmouth Book Blog Reviews 4/5 “…. This was a short but highly sexy read…”

A story of a city boy meets a cowboy was definitely high on my read list. This was a short but highly sexy read, that had many twists I found interesting and the characters Jay and Nate are very likable and I enjoyed both of them.

Cathy Writes Romance  “… I loved how Jay and Nate fought their attraction and how it was inevitable…”

If you like market managers, creative men, rugged cowboys, new series, Montana, cute kids, sweet romance and some hot man-sex, this is for you

 

 

 

 

MM Good Book Reviews 4/5 “…*R.J. I want to know… NOW*…”

I loved this story, it had just the right amount of everything to keep me turning the pages and having me scouring the internet for hints about future books.

Making it Happen 4.5/5 “…I’m really going to have to find a way to convince my husband that I need her entire backlist ASAP…”

I loved the characters, both main and supporting. I don’t think I could pick a favorite, it would be one massive tie.

Life, Books, and More 4/5 “…A sweet contemporary romance about two dedicated family men…”
 

I can only hope that we get to revisit them as this series develops. I am definitely looking forward to more in this series.

Book Junky Girls 4/5 “…I loved Jay’s sass and zest for life and his determination to always be there for his family…”

All of the supporting characters were also very well written and while you got a better glimpse at some of them, others were left more open ended which I am excited to see more of in the books to come!
Bobbie’s Book Blog and Reviews “…Very well written…”
 

Even more enjoyable is watching the love between Nate and Jay grow as they work together to help Crooked Tree Ranch prosper.

The Smut-Brarians 4/5 “…I enjoyed the sexy times and romance in this M/M story.”
 

This was a sweet, cowboy love story and a nice light, romantic read.

Nicole’s Book Musings 4/5 “…Will their time together be just a fling? Or will it lead to forever?”

You’ll fall in love with the Todd brothers. They bicker like siblings do, but you can feel the love of family. Family is a very important part of the ranch and it’s legacy.

Wicked Reads 4/5 “…Jay is always looking out for his family…”

I am usually a sucker for instant-love, but this book didn’t have that, this was a slow build up, well, slower than most books and it actually worked and fit the story and the characters.

Bookaholics Not-So-Anonymous 5/5 “…it was a series starter that I adored reading from beginning till the end…”
 

I also liked that this was a slow burn romance, though I’m sure some people will think that a couple or so weeks is still too quick. They had to overcome their own first impressions of one another before becoming friends and then more.

Foxylutely Books! 4.5/5 “…The plot was nicely balanced with suspense, comedy, romance and passion…”

It was believable and the chemistry that gradually built lead to a heated passionate encounter that then lead the way for the rest of the book.
PNR Book Lovers Reviews 4/5 “… massive fan of cowboys so this was perfect #angfriendly story…”

I loved the slow build to everything, Nate and Jay don’t get along at first, but to watch their romance blossom to what it become is beautiful.

Rainbow Book Reviews “…it has a cast of multi-layered characters that was great to watch meeting and interacting in this first book…”

If you like family drama and a mystery hiding in the past, if “country” meeting “city” and the resulting fireworks are your thing, and if you’re looking for an entertaining read with great characters and a definite promise of more to come, then you will probably like this novel.

Bodyguards Inc series, RJ Scott


Bodyguard Adam Freeman draws what everyone else thinks is the short straw at the convention for a procedural cop show – as bodyguard to TV actor Logan Brady. Or as the Internet has labelled him, Logan ‘Sex God’ Brady.

Logan is taking part in a convention at a London Hotel for his show ‘Night Cop’ and someone is threatening his life.

Adam gets more than he bargained for when his client combines coming out of the closet with them both trying to stay alive.


When Bodyguard, Ben Collins, finds Daniel Lincoln in a room, hiding and hurt, he doesn’t immediately think Daniel is the victim of abuse. Daniel is good at pretending and being a finalist in a TV singing competition he seems like he has it made.

But something about Daniel calls to Ben’s need to protect and he hands Daniel a card to contact him if ever Daniel needed help. Abruptly, after one frightened phone call from Daniel, Ben is racing to Daniel’s
aid and what he finds is a horror he can’t imagine.

Daniel is trapped in a relationship where anger and controlling hate are the only emotions he is given. When his boyfriend crosses the line and leaves Daniel vulnerable and broken there is only one man that he wants to call.

The sexy bodyguard who promised he could help him.


Bodyguard Max Connery is used to being mistaken for being younger than he is. Being carded every time he buys a beer is usual. Even though he’s just turned twenty eight and has two tours in Afghanistan as a pilot under his belt.

When a threat is made on the life of a prince attending University in the UK, Max is the perfect choice to blend in with  students and to keep Prince Lucien safe. Even if it means joining the swim team
to be by his side.

But, when death visits the University, abruptly this job is a long way past keeping the prince happy and safe. Instead Max has to keep Lucien alive.


Even if Ross and Kyle make it out of this alive, will the secrets in Kyle’s heart stay safe?

Kyle gets caught up in a case that is entirely unrelated to Bodyguards Inc. Not only does he abruptly need time off, but he has to have absolute trust and complete support from Ross without being able to
tell Ross a thing.

CIA Agent Stefan Mortimer needs Kyle’s help with a case of a geneticist and a missing formula. Trouble is being led right to Kyle’s door, endangering the life of the team he has built and the man that he loves.

Going undercover, with Ross as his husband, is the worst kind of torture in so many ways, but it is the only answer. Kyle and Ross may well live through this but Kyle is convinced his heart won’t survive.


Can Christmas be the time when Kirby finally stops running and allows himself to fall in love with the man who saves his life?

CIA Agent Stefan Mortimer is cooling his heels in the UK until he can go home. Taking on easy assignments with Bodyguards Inc. seems like a good solution to keep him sane. He’s used to life throwing him curveballs, and it’s just another day at the office when he rescues Kirby Devlin and his niece and nephew. Now he has to keep Kirby and the
kids alive and stay professional.

Kirby Devlin has one priority; keeping his small family safe. On the run, and facing danger at every turn, Kirby finally runs out of places to hide on a snowy December day at an Edinburgh train station. Stefan
comes to the rescue, saves him and the  children. Is it possible that Kirby finally has someone to trust?

Now, if only it would be as easy for Kirby to trust Stefan with his heart.


Martial arts expert Lewis is the kind of bodyguard who slips under most people’s radar. Quiet, reserved, but constantly on alert, he’ll do his job, keep his charges safe, then relax by reading Shakespeare in his spare time.

When he’s given a case involving a spoiled celebrity singer, Lewis isn’t all that impressed. The job is nothing but babysitting a pretty boy, and he’s used to diplomatic postings with depth and challenge.

What could he possibly have in common with the man he’s being forced to look after?

Alex became the envy of many when he and his fellow bandmates won second place in a huge TV talent show. He has more money than he knows what to do with, no life goals, an ex-boyfriend selling a sex tape and now, someone who wants him dead, or at the very least maimed.

Can Lewis keep Alex safe, even when things usually in his control go to hell? Is running to a remote Scottish island the only way for them to stay alive?
