What would you do for someone you love?

Would you fight to the death to save someone you love? Would you travel a thousand miles to rescue them? What makes a hero or heroine push the limits?

Sergeant Jinn Dennison seeks her identical twin sister, Julie, in the Mexican rainforest. She 'feels' that Julie is dying. The only think keeping her away from Julie is time, and Tab (Toxic) McTavish, the captain of Julie's team, Toxic Tango Troop, an elite team of soldiers whose mission it is to take down a drug lord.

Tab  thinks Jinn is Julie and a traitor to the team and gave them up to the enemy. She can't prove her innocence because she and her sister are highly classified secrets in the military. They are both psychic in the extreme. Alone, they are powerful, but together they can be deadly.

The only thing besides their natures that will set the women apart is their matching dragon tattoos on their bellies, and the love of a man. When you think of it, love and war go hand in hand. Battling hearts or soldiers still leaves a wide open gap to fill. Each story blends the two until they are one.

Imagine you're at home with your partner and there is friction between you. Do you fight back, or offer your heart to resolve the issues? Misunderstandings are commonplace in romantic tales, but when the characters both see eye to eye, fires light up and hearts fill with love.

Join Jinn and Tab in JINN & TOXIC - book 1 of the Toxic Tango Troop series. Book 2 is Julie's story, MINX JULIETTE (coming soon). Don't miss them. Get your copy today at www.breathlesspress.com

EXCERPT


After a long, uneventful day, Jinn was exhausted and tired of waiting for Tab to follow through on his threats. With no chance to get past his defenses and the team never far away, she remained captive.

There'd been no contact from Julie, but the mild pain in Jinn's chest assured her that her sister was alive. They'd found few signs of humans passing, and the trail was getting cold. Many of the teammates were getting frustrated.

Jane Burgess, one of their female soldiers who they called Spitfire, was a prisoner of the enemy and that boded ill for her. From what Jinn had seen with Angel, the rebels were brutal with women.

Angel still hadn't spoken more than a few words since her release. She'd withdrawn into herself as though to block out the world. Tab and Gonzales watched over her. Jinn studied Tab as he fed the woman and realized by the tender care as he wiped some meat juice off her chin with his thumb that he had feelings for her. A twinge of jealousy reared its green head.

Jennings sat down beside Jinn and studied her for a few moments before she spoke, the first of the soldiers to even acknowledge her since she'd been unveiled by Tab.

"I don't know what's changed about you or why all the lies, Dennison, but I want to tell you something; Don't you harm the Captain or anyone else on this team, or you're a dead woman whether you helped us or not. Understand?"

The serious frown on her face caused Jinn to realize there was more to the threat than simple protectiveness. "You're in love with the Captain, aren't you?"

A flush turned Jennings' cheeks red as she stood.

"I meant what I said."

Jinn nodded. "I'll take that into consideration. As I said before, I'm not here to harm anyone. I have a job to do, and I'm going to do it with or without the help of TT&T."

"As long as your job doesn't jeopardize the rest of us, I'm good with that." Jennings stood and moved off to sit with the others, leaving Jinn to her thoughts.

The hairs on the back of her neck stood up, and she realized that someone was watching her, she looked up and met Tab's brooding gaze. Her lips tingled at the memory of his mouth on hers, his body mastering her on the ground earlier. She licked her lips unconsciously and nearly grinned when his eyes dropped to watch the movement. He might pretend to be impartial, but by the growing bulge in his pants, he was anything but.

Tab turned around and disappeared into the forest. Satisfaction was a sweet tool.
