Introducing the Justiss Alliance, an elite team of heroes out to do right. In Wild on You, one untamable SEAL meets a woman who handles the wildest sort of
animals—until she herself becomes the hunted.

When Rick Yarbrough, aka Risk, a discharged SEAL with a taste for danger, joins the Justiss Alliance, his first assignment seems like a baby-sitting gig: He must guard an out-of-control general’s daughter. Then he meets his charge. Addie Wunder is no baby. She’s a dedicated animal-rights activist who isn’t above breaking the law if innocent creatures are threatened. But her work has made her a lot of powerful enemies. If she doesn’t stop, she may just turn herself into an endangered species.
Risk’s mission is to keep Addie out of trouble. But as they grow closer, Addie becomes so much more than a job. And the more he has to lose, the more Risk is willing to put his own life on the line—for her cause, her safety, and her sweet-hot embrace.

In this intro to The Justiss Alliance series, meet the five Navy SEALs who undertake the covert mission that trashes their careers—and the offer that changes their lives. Kicking off a new series in this sizzling eBook original novella, Tina Wainscott returns with a team of tough, fearless heroes who are prepared for just about anything, except the last threat they could ever expect: true love.

On a good day as a Navy SEAL, you save a life, protect a freedom, stop a killer. And on a bad day . . . well, you don’t get to have a bad day. But then one SEAL team does. Five impeccably trained soldiers—used to danger, unafraid of death—are sent into a black ops assignment where no one knows the full story of deceit and deception. The situation gets ugly. The press gets wind. Someone has to take the fall. And when these five SEALs fall, they fall hard.

Meet the Justiss Alliance: Risk, Rath, Saxby, Knox, and Julian. Led by a mysterious employer with plenty to hide, these fallen stars of the D.O.D. are about to take advantage of their ruined reputations and start turning wrongs to rights—no matter the cost.

When her sister, Diana, rode off into the sunset with a member of the Kings of Chaos, Mollie was beyond worried. Two weeks later, a desperate call from Di launches Mollie into the dark world of violent outlaws. When a sexy SEAL comes to her rescue, he pushes his way into her search—and brings a team from the private “security” firm he works for. Julian Cuevas is living proof that some people can be counted on, even if her savior is a well-armed, world class sniper on a Harley. But Julian’s most lethal weapon, as far as Mollie is concerned, is the tough tenderness that threatens her heart.

say what

“Tina Wainscott delivers high-octane suspense and red-hot romance! Full of edgeof- your-seat action and red-hot passion, Wild on You is a souped-up roller-coaster of a page-turner.”—Julie Ann Walker, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Black Knights Inc. series

Fun, lighthearted but with an extremely “close-2-my-heart” issue. This is Wild On You in a capsule. Risk is an ex- Navy Seal who's entire squad took the blame for a FUBARed black ops mission gone wrong. Now they work for the a private security firm called the Justiss Alliance. Risk earned his Seal handle because of his need for adrenaline rushes. So, he's not thrilled with his job as a glorified babysitter. This of course changes when he meets his charge, Addie. It is mutual lust at first sight.

Now I mentioned this is a very fun, lighthearted read, but there is a really dark, but factual thread running through Wild On You. You could have knocked me over with a feather at some of the animal rights scenarios discussed in the book. You may feel that some of these situations are over the top or exaggerated for literary effect. Oh, you could not be more wrong. I took part in the protest at UNC-Greensboro, where the psychology department was conducting feline experiments that had no medical significance whatsoever. And the "good ol' boy" network at the heart of the canned hunts, don't doubt that is alive and well. So, I sincerely appreciated the close up view of a horrible crisis couched in a romance novel.

For all the lighthearted tone, Tina Wainscott knows her stuff and I was EXTREMELY impressed with her method of writing a message threaded through a well thought out and executed story, engaging and likable characters, snappy and intelligent dialogue and a lovely dose of hot and spicy to top it all off. I loved the portrayal of Addie as a dedicated woman who doesn't feel the need to hit people over the head with her beliefs, but just lives her life as an example. I truly am a fan after this book and will definitely be on the lookout for the next book.

Tina Wainscott has always loved the combination of romance and suspense, because nothing complements falling in love better than being hunted down. The author of more than thirty novels and novellas, Wainscott creates characters with baggage, past hurts, and vulnerabilities. They go through hell, find love, and at the end, find peace in who they are and everything they’ve gone through. And isn’t that what we all want?

Thank you for hosting my hop stop and for the great and thougtful review! Sebella, I was horrified to read about another university experiment, the one I loosely based my scenario on. Thanks for being a fellow animal advocate!
