hi all I'm sorry if this search has been done before. I'm trying to find books that are romantic suspense with the heroes being in the army/navy/black ops/some other military or firemen. Also looking for bounty hunters. I'd like the hero to be alpha if possible dark past on either hero or heroines' side, not really looking for a book that's heavy on humor. Thanks all!

I've already tried maya banks, shannon mckenna, just started elle kennedy, didn't like cindy gerald, gave up on lora leigh, and have yet to try cherry adair.

You might give Jo Davis's Firefighters of Station 5 a try. Elaine Levine's Red Team series, Stephanie Tyler's Shadow Force series or any of Amy Fetzer's contemporaries.

I was going to say Shannon McKenna's McCloud series if you haven't read that one.  I've devoured every single one of them.

I read shannon mckenna's cloud series, liked 2 of them and wasn't too big a fan of the rest of them. Nancy, I'm going to go through this list, but if you can give me a hint as to which of them are bdsm that would be awesome =)

I may be wrong on a few of these as most are still on my TBR, but I amended above for you to the best of my knowledge.

Rachel Lee's Conard County series has lots of heroes with dark pasts and covert activities.  There are a lot of books starting with Conard County and then going to a next generation.

They are not really cowboy stories as such, more like stories set in Montana ranching country. The stories are usually centered around law enforcement, former military, covert SEAL types and people with secrets who come to Conard County to escape.  My favorite is "Miss Emmaline and the Archangel".  This is about a DEA undercover agent.

Lately, her stories are about women who have been abused and have taken on a much darker feel.   Don't know what she is working through, but I like the earlier series more than the next generation, but they are still good.

betsy I'll look for emmaline in the pbs site, I like dark stories but sometimes when its the same author, they take one theme like abuse from a husband, and write 10 books in a row about it which can get tiring.

I remember reading the Conard County series way back when it began.  Excellent series and each book is different.

Loved the Conard County series and Miss Emmeline is one of my favs of that series.
