Your Mission: Meet Elite Operative Silver #EliteMetal

For decades the US Marines funded a top-secret unit known as Elite Recon. A deadly group of men and women sent to infiltrate dozens of countries completely undetected. Mission objectives so extreme casualties were not only probable, but expected.

The current batch of operatives had returned from hundreds of assignments unscathed…until one mission went horribly wrong. Several men lost their lives and the group disbanded. The remaining leathernecks were scattered in the wind with new identities. They were told to blend in. Be normal. Or face being forever silenced just like their fallen brothers.

Now, two years later, each living member of the group is kidnapped and given a chance to make things right. But this time they’re no longer under the thumb of Uncle Sam. A mysterious private backer who knows about their past has brought them back together. No longer are they forced to turn a blind eye to the lost and forsaken.

A new life. A new future…Elite Metal.

After surviving the double-cross during Operation Phoenix, Former Elite Recon Marine Silver embraces the underworld and builds a new life as one of the world's most renowned thieves. Jewels, paintings, corporate espionage--there's no job he won't take for the right price.


“Who the hell are you?” The gruffly barked question ricocheted off the walls of the room where they were holding him. Judging by the hollow sound, he was in a metal building. A warehouse? A factory?

“There’s no need to get huffy, Silver. You should remember that I’m the only thing standing between you and a dozen INTERPOL agents champing at the bit to slap their cuffs on your wrists.”
There was the slightest hint of an Irish accent in her posh voice when she said champing. He had a good ear for accents, especially after disappearing in Europe and learning to blend in, so he picked up on that telltale lilt in an instant. Never one to let a golden opportunity to be a smartass pass him up, he smirked. “Sugar, you can slap your cuffs on my wrists all night long.”

“Goodness, Steele and Chrome were right about you.”

At the mention of his former Elite Recon teammates, Silver’s smirk flattened into a sour grimace. “Who the hell are you?” he asked again. “How do you know about Chrome and Steele?”
“I’m not authorized to hand out that information until you have been fully apprised of and agree to the stipulations of my employer. Now, you can sit still, be quiet and listen, or I’m walking out that door and dialing INTERPOL. It’s your choice.”

Goddamn but that haughty voice of hers made his dick throb. He hated himself for getting hot and bothered by Miss Manners, but his reaction to her was undeniable. “Fine,” he said through gritted teeth. “I’m listening.”

“In the last five months alone, you have stolen more than twenty-five million dollars’ worth of high-end jewelry, antiques and art. You’ve aided and abetted half a dozen families in perpetrating major insurance fraud. You have been a very, very naughty boy, Silver.”

“Honey, you are welcome to spank me anytime.” God, how he wished he could see her face! He had never met a woman immune to his charms. Was she biting her lip and trying not to smile? Was she pursing her lips and pretending to be annoyed?

“My employer has chosen to give you a second chance, Silver.” She ignored his come-on and cut right to the chase. “Operation Phoenix decimated Elite Recon, but Elite Metal has risen from its ashes. We’re a small operation, privately funded, and we hand pick our missions to help people who need us the most.”

“Baby, this isn’t Hollywood, and I’m not interested in your A-Team fantasies,” he bit out with irritation.

“For the last twenty-one weeks, we’ve had men following your every move. You’ve been shadowed from one end of Europe to the next. We plucked you from a train in Budapest and brought you here, all the way to Texas, without detection. With one peek at your dossier, I can tell you what meal you had seven weeks ago, the color of the wallpaper in your bedroom in that Tirana bolthole you love so much and how often you change your underwear.”

“My, my, my,” he drawled, “you seem to have a certain pre-occupation with my bedroom and boxers.”

“This is all a joke to you isn’t it?” Disappointment filled her voice. “Maybe Chrome and Steele were right. Maybe you aren’t a good fit for our team—”

“Now hold on a good goddamned minute—”

“No,” she said firmly. “I can see that this was a waste of my time. Good luck with your INTERPOL interrogators. Of course, we both know that once you hit the prison system, Red Wolf will snatch you up and heaven only knows what he’ll do with you.”

“Damn it! Wait!” The mere mention of Red Wolf had him suddenly hungry for vengeance. “I’m not a team player. That much is true.” He used brute strength to hop the chair forward a few feet. “But I’ll learn to hold hands and share if that means I get a chance to whip some terrorist ass. Those fuckers killed my friends. They ruined the lives of my teammates. They need to pay.”

Breathing hard, he waited for her to say something. When she didn’t speak, he began to worry that he might have fucked up yet another opportunity. The thirty year journey of his life was littered with potholes and craters from the all the bridges he had blown up and the friendships he had obliterated.

“Silver,” she spoke gently and almost motherly, “you need to understand that if you come onboard this team, you have to play by our rules. There is no wiggle room here. You either do as you are told and when you are told—or we hand you over to INTERPOL.”

“I won’t live with the threat of INTERPOL over my head for the rest of my life. I’ll play by your rules, but you’ve got to give me something return. You let me earn back the trust of the team. Put me on probation if you have to—but don’t think for one second that I’m going to let you shock collar me for the rest of my life.”

“Fair enough,” she agreed. “If you complete a small number of trial jobs, we’ll slowly let out your leash. The assignments we’ve chosen will make the best use of your rather unique skill set.”

He grinned. “Baby, I’d love to show you my rather unique skill set. How about tonight? You. Me. A hotel suite. I’ll even be a gentleman and let you tie me up first.”

A short burst of laughter escaped Miss Manners. Judging by the quick way she shut it down, he had a feeling she was utterly mortified that she had let her Ice Queen demeanor slip.

“Oh, Silver,” she said with a heavy sigh, “I was warned you might try to sweet talk me.”

“Is it working?”

“Not yet.”

“Is that a dare, Irish Spring?”

The clack of high heels accompanied her long strides toward him. The blindfold was unexpectedly ripped away. Recoiling under the bright lights suddenly searing his eyes, he closed them and winced. When he finally worked up the courage to open them, he was instantly seized by the pair of grass green eyes staring down at him.

Holy shit.

Just like that, he was a goner. Green eyes. Full lips. High cheekbones. Silky skin with the hint of a tan. She had coiled her pale blonde hair into one of those swirly buns at the back of her neck. His fingers just itched to pluck out those pins and comb through the soft waves. What would it be like to have her pinned to a mattress, his fingers tangled in that beautiful hair while he nipped at her creamy neck and urged her toward an orgasm with dirty, filthy talk that would make her cheeks turn pink?

Shifting in his too-tight jeans, he gazed up at the prim beauty standing over him. “If this is a dream, don’t wake me.”
