Former Navy SEAL Jake Williams is the newly appointed head of a task force assigned to rescue a kidnapped American diplomat. Their only hope is Mya Amari, the daughter of a notorious Algerian hostage negotiator, but she is full of secrets and complications—something Jake takes as a personal challenge. As they grow closer, the threat to the mission escalates and time runs out for the hostages. Can Jake unravel the web of deception to save them all without getting caught in the crossfire?

Mya Amari has been in hiding nearly her entire life to escape her father’ s enemies. But when her sister is kidnapped along with an American diplomat, she’ll do anything to bring her home—including walking into the enemy’s lair. She doesn’t trust anyone, especially the too-handsome-for-his-own-good Commander Williams, but when all her careful plans explode out of control, he’s the only one she can turn to with the truth about her family. Is it too little, too late?

“Great suspense. Kept me guessing the whole book. I never knew which way the plot would turn next. The story is presented in a way that I understood what was going on and what key facts meant when discovered. I have often found myself lost with many war stories, but this book did not bore me or lose me with too much detail and still kept the story intriguing and suspenseful.”

“If you’re looking for an international thriller/romance, look no further. The Captive alternates between former SEAL Jake and legal heroine Mya. The tension between them builds and ignites as they team up together with other allies to rescue a kidnapped officer and his translator. The locale changes, but the danger, intrigue and passion ramp up to a satisfying conclusion.”

“From start to finish this book was full of non stop action. Well developed story line and characters made it a joy to read.”


Captain Colt Mitchell is part of the elite Griffin Force team hunting down terrorist Nazer al-Raimi. After an attack on the Canadian Parliament buildings, the team gets good intel on Nazer’s whereabouts. They plan to grab him, but when the mission goes wrong, Colt is captured and dragged away. Bruised, restrained, and disoriented, Colt is stunned to see Brenna Wilson, the Canadian intelligence officer who broke his heart years ago, standing next to Nazer. But how deep is she in the operation and can she help Colt escape?

After the devastating attack on Canadian soil, Brenna is recruited to go undercover to find out what Nazer is planning next. She’s close to her goal until her former flame Colt Mitchell is taken hostage. Walking away from him has always been her biggest regret and she knows she has to save him, even if it blows her mission. Taking matters into her own hands, she pulls off a daring escape, but Colt and Brenna must learn to trust each other again if they want to stay alive. With their hearts and their lives on the line can they survive long enough to stop Nazer from ravaging another country’s sense of security?

“Mrs. Coulton does an excellent job of writing page-turning suspense with a detailed plot with swoon-worthy touch of romance. I love that she writes clean and realistic scenarios that capture you from daily routines into a deadly world where heroes are needed and no sacrifice for the good of man is to greet.”

“I can’t say enough good things about this book. I enjoyed every page. Well written. Fantastic plot and the pace was just right. Loved this action packed romance.”


Julian Bennet, head of Griffin Force, finally finds love with Zaya Altes, but the day he buys her an engagement ring, international terrorist Nazer al-Raimi abducts her. Getting her back consumes him, yet it takes nearly six months to find her. The daring mission to extract her from a hidden prison in Afghanistan is successful, but Zaya has suffered during captivity. Though she’s grateful to Julian for breaking her out, she wants nothing to do with him. Before he can show her how much he still loves her, Nazer finds them and vows revenge. Can Julian keep Zaya safe and still stop Nazer once and for all?

Zaya Altes nearly gave up hope of ever being rescued, but when Griffin Force finally finds her, returning to life is harder than she imagined. While her feelings for Julian are as strong as ever, she feels too broken to recapture what they once had. Instead, Zaya jumps at a chance to trap Nazer, wanting vengeance for what she’s endured. As the final showdown draws near, however, Zaya will have to make an unimaginable choice to let Nazer close to her again. But when a shocking web of betrayal is uncovered in their own ranks, their one chance to capture him is compromised. Julian and Zaya will put everything on the line, but can they survive this ultimate test and finally reach for their chance at happiness?

“I love this team of characters, the challenges they overcome and the loyalty and friendships they have developed. I couldn’t put this down and read it straight through.”

“Great writing, cliff hanging suspense and chilling detail given by author Julie Coulter Bellon.”


When the most wanted terrorist in the world escapes from a high security prison, Nate Hughes is part of the task force sent to recapture him. During the mission, he meets Abby, a fellow investigator that seems to have it all together. He’s drawn to her and hopes they can join forces, but when her past is revealed, loyalties are called into question. Could she have turned against the country she once held dear?

The CIA wants her captured and interrogated, but with a terrorist attack imminent, Abby may be the only person in a position to help them stop it. Nate must make a choice to either trust her or turn her in—but the wrong decision would clear the path for the largest attack on freedom the world has ever seen.

And time is running out.
“Julie Coulter Bellon has given us a small taste of what it’s like to chase a terrorist in Second Look and it is terrifying just reading a fictitious account let alone imagining the real thing that his happening right now.”
“This story had me so invested from beginning to end. I loved the fantastic forward momentum that hardly left me any time to breathe. I had moments of full anxiety and then moments of sweet love. It was exactly what I was hoping for.”
