Surly Bonds (Hard Broke Book 1)

by English Michaels

Rash daredevils with a score to settle. Swaggering jet jocks with no regard for rules or safety. Unchecked egos battling for superiority. This is the picture Hollywood paints of the military fighter pilotâ??but what really happens behind the closed doors of an Air Force fighter squadron?

English Michaels knows.

When the 82nd Tactical Fighter Squadron pays the ultimate price for reckless leadership, Lieutenant Colonel Nathan Morgan is tasked with the responsibility of instilling discipline in the talented, untamed fighter pilots.

The Scorpions like to play hard, but Nathan’s trademark is hard work. There’s been no room for anything but career and accomplishment since his hopes for love and family were felled in one devastating instant, and Nate’s never given a second thought to the possibility of opening his heart or his life to another woman.

Not until Camille. She’s funny, successful, whip-smart, and utterly broken. Nathan has no indication she’s branded by heartbreak and loss to rival what’s shaped him, but when circumstances intertwine their lives, the blazing attraction is impossible to ignore. And the chemistry is off the charts.

Both lives are crowded with careers where life and death hang in the balance daily. Seconds count and a momentary loss of focus can result in tragedy. And their longing for deeper connection is hampered by the scars of old heartbreak. Can Nathan persuade Camille to give love another chance even as he hesitates to trust his own heart?

The Hard Broke Series follows the adventures of the pilots of the Scorpion squadron and the women they love. Although each story is self-contained and does not contain a cliffhanger, the terminology unique to the fighter pilot world and the United States Air Force makes it preferable to read the series in order. Please enjoy each story chronologically – I hope you love the Scorpions as much as I do.

Interview with the Author

What was your inspiration to write Paris, Rue des Martyrs?
City life inspired me. The idea that every day, we might pass the same people as we walk down the street, yet what do we know about their lives? What would happen if our paths crossed? One of my favorite genres is literary fiction, so I decided to write a novel in that vein about life-changing encounters, liaisons and entwined paths.

What kind of story is Paris, Rue des Martyrs?
I hope it will be an emotional read. Paris, Rue des Martyrs is about the importance of encounters. It is a story of family, friendship and coming of age. It is about love and loss, and healing wounds of the past. And it is a Paris love story, of course. It’s not your classic Paris romance, but rather a different take of the types of relationships one encounters in this fabulous city: Paris fiction with a twist.

Many books have been written with Paris as the setting. What sets yours apart?
A lot of books are about the Paris of berets and baguettes. Paris, Rue des Martyrs is about the reality of Paris life… living in a Montmartre neighborhood, sitting at a café, being Parisian by adoption in this melting pot of a city.

So this book is part of a series?
Yes and no. Each novel in the From Paris to Provence series brings to life its own unique characters and can be read as a standalone, but all books share the vibrant and captivating setting of France:
A Perfumer’s Secret
Paris, Rue des Martyrs
Paris Jungle

If you enjoy stories of encounters, family secrets & relationships, I think you’ll enjoy Paris, Rue des Martyrs. Thanks for reading!
