Excerpt from Mission: Her Security (Team 52 #3) featuring Blair
Blair Mason watched through the doorway as Smith sat beside Kinsey’s bed.
The big man was murmuring quietly, and even though Kinsey looked small and pale propped up on the pillows, she was smiling.
It wasn’t her usual beaming smile, but it was something.
Thank God. Kinsey was fine and Smith looked alive again.
During the tense hours in the waiting room, Smith had been like a statue—cold and still. His brown eyes had been devoid of…everything.
Blair watched as he leaned over and kissed Kinsey.
Jesus. Blair felt her heart clench. They were so damn cute together. Smith was a big, tough guy. Blair had fought alongside him so many times, and trusted him with her life. She knew he loved his solitude and his cabin near the mountains. Knew he loved nothing more than the serene beauty of the Colorado mountains.
She never, ever imagined seeing him like this. In love.
Blair had watched three of her teammates—three of the toughest guys she knew—fall in love. First Lachlan, then Seth, and now Smith. They were all unashamed to show how they felt about the women who’d captured their hearts.
Blair had always thought she wanted that. A man who loved her inside and out, for exactly who she was, and wasn’t afraid to show it.
And yet… That kind of man was hard to find. And she’d spent the last few hours sitting in the waiting room down the hall, watching Smith being torn to shreds.
Maybe love wasn’t all it was cracked up to be.
“You called it.” Lachlan appeared beside her. “The bigger they are…”
“Yeah.” Blair pushed her maudlin thoughts away. Besides, she’d never met a man who made her feel anything remotely close to love. In fact, most men—after a quick, pleasant tussle—annoyed her.
Anyway, she had zero time to date. She couldn’t really share the truth of her work with a man, and she found most guys…kinda boring.
“The artifact?” she asked Lachlan.
Her best friend lifted his chin. “All packed up. Seth’s guarding it at the X8 until we’re ready to head home. It’s beaten up. Arlo and Ty are going to have a shit hemorrhage.”
“Ty will fix it.” Blair paused. “So, another mission over.”
“Yeah. The military police from Cheyenne Mountain took all the surviving Cosca Unita people into custody. Mission’s over and we can go home.”
For Lachlan now, home meant his woman, Rowan. Blair was happy as hell for him.
Lachlan’s golden gaze moved to Smith and Kinsey. “Could have done without Kinsey taking a bullet to the gut, though.”
“Yeah. And so is Smith.”
“Well, once we get home, we’ll have to enjoy some downtime before we need to save the world again,” Blair said.
Lachlan tossed an arm around her shoulders. He’d been her best friend for years, from their time in Force Recon. Why were all the best men she knew her friends and colleagues? Guys who were like brothers to her?
“You won our last poker game,” Lachlan said, interrupting her thoughts. “I want a chance to win some money back.”
Blair grinned. “No such luck. You are going down, Hunter.”
He smiled back.
Blair kept her smile plastered on her face. She had good friends and work she loved. She didn’t need a man.

Another fantastic cover! Congratulations!!!!
Thanks, Katie 🙂
This cover is such a turn on
Great cover, this should a Great story
Fantastic cover, you want to jump in and start reading now. Jeanette
The cover is fantastic! Now I’m going to have to deal with my impatience with new books coming out. Oh well. Guess I’ll just have to re-read all of yours that I have
What a great cover, can’t wait to read it
The cover is awesome!! I am so excited to read all about Blair!
All Anna Hackett collections (Galactic Gladiators, Hell Squad, Treasure Hunter Security, Eon Warriors, Team 52…) are the best they could ever be. I’ve found myself reading every one of them more than 5 times (and I’m not exaggerating). The only bad thing is that they are small so there’s less of them.
I love these books and will always look foward to the next and the next after that. Wish these books would be sold here in Portugal!!!
Thank you Anna Hackett for the amazing writing and adventures you make it possible for us to live through. Every character and every page are magical.
This new cover is exceptional and I just wish 12 of January could be tomorrow!!!
Muita obrigada, Mariana <3

Another enticing cover 🙂 Enjoying this series & happily jumping back & forth & re-reading the other series as well – keep ’em coming 😀
Nice cover! I am really enjoying this series.
Love the cover 🙂
Sexy cover. I get the impression she’s holding back.
She’s pretty stubborn 😀
Love the cover. Can’t wait to read it. One of my favorite series.
I’m anxious to start this series!
Love it!!! Can’t Wait for it!!!!
Nice cover. I could do with less face fuzz. Glad there was no distracting ink.
He’s a pretty clean-cut police detective!
Cover is very attractive and makes me want to read the book, although if the female model represents Blair, shouldn’t her muscles be more defined? (I know, picky picky)
This was as toned as I could find in the right pose with the right guy!
The cover is enticing -love it- The blurb intriguing – I love the journeys your stories take me on – can’t wait to see how Blaire & Luke match up.
Thanks, everyone! I’m reading all the comments and am so excited for Blair and Luke!
I love the cover! It’s sexy without being overly sexy like some covers tend to be! I can’t wait to read it!
Can’t wait, I always love the storyline where you combine two fighters. 😉
Totally enjoyable series and this cover has a very good looking couple I am hoping to read about finding their happily ever after.
Bionic Blair is not going to make life easy for Luke! Looks like another corker of a read. Do Team 52 need an Admin Assistant or Analyst? If so I volunteer to get my ass on a plane to HQ pronto!!!
on book 15 of hell squad thank you can’t wait for Tane’s story
Hey Anna! Once again, you’ve given us a fabulous cover to go along with what I know will be a fabulous book. After all, MY Lachlan leads the Team 52 gang so any story about them could be nothing less that fabulous. ? ????
Love the cover! I always love when we can get a look at a character. Helps build the story even more! ♥️
Love the cover and I love this series. Thanks for all you do.
Awesome cover Anna

OMG my fav. couple!!!!! The cover looks yummy!!!! I can’t wait for this book!!!!!
I’m so excited for Blairs story!!, I love how all your series has one cover, where a female is standing opposite her man ???
My TBR pile just keeps getting bigger. You release a new book and everything goes on hold while I reread and then catch up with all my favs. Keep writing. I get a shot at my TBR pile between your books LOL
Love the cover looking forward to reading the book.
Cover is smoking! Looks great!
Looks awesome, as usual!
Omg can’t wait ?
Great cover, but yours are always great!
Love the cover – as usual. You have gorgeous covers for all your books!
I’m also thinking I need to dive into this series – I was waiting till I caught up on Galactic Gladiators but that seems silly right now since everytime I get close you put out another awesome book! I’m thinking this series deserves its own spot in my “KU plan” just so I can get to it sooner, like now!
Great cover as usual!
Third try at getting a post posted!!
Great cover & it (and the great reviews) are pushing me to dig into this series sooner than I had originally planned!
