Follow along as USA Today Bestselling Author Kennedy Layne takes you down a suspenseful path where a ruthless killer is always one step ahead…

Brody Novak has been given his first assignment for Safeguard Security & Investigations, and it has nothing to do with his lead role as a communications specialist.  With the rest of the team occupied on a hunt for a serial killer, he’s the only one left behind to handle what everyone thought to be an open and shut case.  He should have known it wouldn’t be that easy.

Remy Kinkaid has faithfully made a phone call once a month for the last four years to ensure the killer who murdered her sister remained behind bars.  Every time she’s been given the same answer—except today.

Berke and Remy must work together to hunt down a murderer, despite their growing attraction.  It isn’t safe to give in to their desires, when the killer is always one step ahead of them.  It’s only when he stumbles that Remy is finally given the opportunity to face her past in order to have a future.

Series Description: Safeguard Security & Investigations (SSI) is owned and operated by Townes Calvert, a retired Marine Gunnery Sergeant who returned home to the States a bit more damaged than he’d care to admit. Not that anyone could tell outside of a very select group of former active duty buddies. It had taken Townes quite a while to acclimate to civilian life and he’d kept himself busy in the interim working in treacherous situations with even more dangerous friends. The final result is a close-knit unit of highly trained former military men who have the experience to protect the innocent, investigate crimes on the gritty edge, and aid local law enforcement when justice has taken a back seat to political correctness. Follow along as Kennedy Layne conveys each of their gripping stories as they work together on investigations that lead them down perilous paths of passion, intrigue, and suspense…

Read an Excerpt from DISTANT ILLUSIONS:

Remy touched her warm lips with her fingertips, remembering the piercing tingles that had played across them that night.

Four days—that’s how long had gone by since their encounter.

She’d allowed Brody to kiss her.

She’d wanted him to, and now she had to suffer without while he was so close in proximity.

It was obvious he didn’t understand her need to deny herself, and there wasn’t anything she could say to explain why that was necessary. And it was even more apparent now after four days had gone by. That was a long time to go in avoiding the giant pink elephant in the room.

Remy hadn’t realized how badly she wanted to feel something other than grief until he’d caused her to experience…well, simply put, he made her draw a breath of fresh air for the first time in four years.





It had all been in that one kiss.

She was no longer cold, and she wasn’t sure how to get that detached feeling back. It was how she’d survived, and she was desperately searching for her way back.

Unfortunately, a yearning unlike anything she’d ever experienced even prior to her sister’s death had made itself known.

And all from one single kiss.

Remy couldn’t look at Brody in the same light anymore—a stranger, a protector, and a barrier between life and death.

He now represented life…a life she couldn’t allow herself to dream of just yet.

She’d had no choice but to walk away from him.
