What would you do if the man you loved woke up and didn’t remember you?

Christian Storm was your normal kick ass bad boy, until his best friend admitted to having feelings for him.

On the heel of Rick’s confession, Christian gets his act together, and starts a relationship with Rick.

The case they’re working on together goes sour at the end and Rick is taken.

After a few days Rick is found broken and battered. When he wakes up in the hospital, Rick doesn’t know who he or anyone else is.

Now Christian has to find the man responsible for Rick’s abduction and bring him in before he strikes again. Will Christian be able to convince Rick to fall in love with him a second time or will Christian lose everything he holds dear?

Freeing His Mercenary is the continuation of Taming His Mercenary.
This book is intended for a mature audience.
Elliot scanned the woods as he tried to keep up with Christian and his team. For big men, they moved swiftly and silently. He had waited for them to get a good distances from the trucks before he got out to follow them. Christian had lost his mind if he thought Elliot would wait for them to come back with his daughter. Logan was a wild card, he never did what you expected him to do and he wasn’t about to take chances with his daughter’s life.

“What the fuck do you think you’re doing?” Christian whispered fiercely, once Elliot was beside them.

“I couldn’t wait for you to come back. This is my daughter, Christian.” He whispered back.

“He’s here now. Elliot, I want you to stick close to Christian and do what he tells you to do, no questions asked.” Chase said from the other side of him.

“Take this, but don’t shoot me with it.” Elliot took the gun that Christian handed to him. As much as he was tempted to shoot Christian, he needed him to get his daughter out alive.

As if on some unspoken order, Christian and his team moved towards the house. Elliot moved quickly behind Christian as he and Killian stopped at the backdoor. Elliot watched as Killian pulled out a lock picking kit and went to work on the door. Seconds later, they were entering the house. Coming in through the kitchen behind them, Elliot didn’t see anything out of the ordinary. He followed them up the stairs and paused at the landing when Christian held up his hand. They moved to the first door they came upon. Christian and Killian on both sides of the door with Elliot standing behind Christian.

Turning the knob Killian opened the door, they moved inside as one. Elliot froze inside of the door, his blood going cold. Standing next to the window, Logan had Laci in front of him with a gun pointed at her head.

“I knew you would pull something like this Elliot.” Logan stated in greeting. “Why did you have to go and ruin everything?”

“Logan why don’t you let the little girl go?” Christian stated.

“Why, so you can take me to jail or kill me? I think not.” He stated as he took a step closer to the window. “Here’s what’s going to happen. You are going to let me walk out of this house and get into my car with no problems.”

“You know we can’t do that.” Christian stated.

“How’s your friend? It would be a shame for the same thing that happened to him to happen to Laci here.”

Elliot gasped as he took a step towards his daughter. He stopped when he felt a searing hot pain in his arm. “Daddy!” He heard Laci scream before he hit the floor.
It's not really fair for me to write a review for Freeing His Mercenary because I'm the editor and my opinion is sure to be just a little bit biased. ;) What I will say is that working with Vanessa on this book has been a pleasure from start to finish. Her writing continues to improve with each installment, in fact, at the rate she's going I'll probably put myself out of a job real soon! I anxiously await each installment and am sure that readers will be pleased with the unique twists Vanessa has added to this story.  Be warned, it ends with a cliffhanger, and you're going to be left begging for book four!

His Mercenary (Book 1) is  free for a limited time!
I live in Texas but originally I am from Trenton, NJ. When I graduated from high school, I joined the military. Yay me. I did three years with one tour to Iraq. I am happily married because seriously, who would put that they are unhappy? I have three kids. No pets, they scare me. I am currently a stay at home mom and I love to read! A lot.
