Titanium Security Series by Kaylea Cross


A big thank you to the Fresh Fiction team for hosting me here today! I’m thrilled to announce the launch of my new Titanium Security romantic suspense series which will consist of at least four books, each featuring a hero with a different military background. If you’re at all familiar with my books you’ll know how I love to showcase little tidbits about my military characters’ training and service. I hope you’ll learn something new and interesting with each story, and that you’ll fall in love with this defense contractor band-of-brothers.   

IGNITED (book 1) features former Navy SEAL Hunter Phillips, and highlights the struggle for girls’ education in the tribal region of Pakistan. Remember last October when the Taliban shot teenage student and activist Malala Yousafzai? The incident sparked international outrage and as a Board member of a post-secondary education scholarship foundation here in Canada, I felt compelled to touch on the issue in Ignited.

SINGED (book 2) just released this past week and features ex Army Special Forces master sergeant (AKA the Team Daddy) Gage Wallace. It includes one of my very favorite romance tropes, the reunion/second chance at love storyline, but it also highlights the epidemic of increasing PTSD cases and suicides among our military vets today.


When her father is murdered by a Taliban cell in the tribal regions of Pakistan, Khalia Patterson reluctantly steps into his shoes to carry on the legacy of Fair Start Foundation, a non-profit group dedicated to furthering the education of girls. There she meets Hunter Phillips, the ex-SEAL and head of her Titanium security team, and quickly learns that coming to Pakistan might prove to be a deadly decision.

Battling demons of his own, Hunter grudgingly leads Khalia’s protective detail as a favor to his boss. From their first meeting it’s clear she’s going to be trouble, and that the cell that killed her father is hell bent on taking her out as well. Keeping her alive is one of the toughest assignments he’s ever faced, yet through one harrowing situation after another she continually impresses him with her strength and inner courage. Even though he fights his feelings for her, it’s a losing battle. And when the job is over, he doesn’t know how he’ll let her go.

*word count: 83,000 (novel)*

I love the book covers and the military theme for both books. I also have been a military brat. I just love hanging around with veterans from the WWII to the Vietnam War listening to their war stories and experiences. It was more of a hobby to me. Thanks for the pricing on the ebooks.

Hi, Janice! Thanks very much and I'm glad I "met" you too :).

Thanks, Colleen. I'm pretty pumped about this new series.

Thanks, L and Wilma.

Clare, yes, I love reading up on things I include in my books.

Laura, mainly non-fiction book written by Spec Ops members, documentaries and I now have a small network of former military people I can turn to with specific questions. That's my favorite part :).
(Kaylea Cross 10:35am July 13, 2013)

Thanks, Rich!

Mary, awesome! Hope you enjoy them. Gage is my favorite character from the series.

Alyson, thank you. It's such a serious issue and it seems to be getting worse, not better.

Thanks, Lynn and Cheryl!

Sarah, I love Linda Howard, Suzanna Brockmann, JR Ward, Anne Calhoun, just to name a few ;).

Thanks, Diane!

Kai, I bet you've heard some amazing stories then. Lucky you :).
(Kaylea Cross 10:38am July 13, 2013)

What an exciting series this promises to be.
