A bounty hunter’s partners to lovers’ story.
The hunt is on… and he’s the prey.
Bradford (Ford) King was sure he had the rest of his life mapped out. Though he was no longer a SEAL Lieutenant, his brother was home safe and he had a job that still allowed him to satisfy his hunger for hunting bad guys. Life was simple, no distractions or complications – at age forty-six – that’s all Ford wanted. What he didn’t want was his work partner, sniper/watchman, Dana, giving him s**t all the time.
Dana Cadby had grown up labeled a roughneck from the wrong side of the tracks. He’d fought, scrounged, and survived despite a father that constantly told him he couldn’t. Dana pulled himself up by his own boot straps and made a name for himself in the marksman community. He’d been Duke’s bounty watchman for five years. It was his job to ensure their safety, watch their backs. At thirty-three, he was trusted, well respected by his peers, his bosses, his friends… so why couldn’t he earn the same respect from his partner?
Dana knew he was bisexual before he graduated high school. He also knew he was attracted to the huge, 6’3”, SEAL from the moment he and his brother came to join their team. It wasn’t easy for him to tamp down his immediate reaction to Ford’s thick muscles, full beard, and dark eyes. Still, Dana exhibited nothing but professionalism towards him, not wanting to make his ‘straight’ partner uncomfortable.
After Dana took back his ex-girlfriend, he’d noticed an intensification in Ford’s bad attitude. One that turned aggressive and downright antagonistic, and Dana was damned if he’d just lay down and take it. He was gonna make that man respect him if it was the last thing he did.
When Duke sends Dana and Ford out to track down their most dangerous bounty yet, they both embrace the fact that they make one hell of a team… but they fight tooth and nail against the powerful intimacy brewing between them.
Beware: When Ford and Dana connect, no fugitive can hide from the hunter and his watchman.
This story is a part of a series but can stand alone. It does not end on a cliffhanger and has a HEA.
Disclaimer: This book is about MM romance, albeit there is a very brief MF scene.

Promises Part 3 is the third book in the Bounty Hunters series by the incredibly talented AE Via. I’m still so happy that I discovered her, I just wish it has been sooner! Her writing is always fresh, her characters funny, strong and a little vulnerable. This book has a few of my favorites: Bounty hunters and a main character who is forty-six! It’s hard to find older characters in books these day and I just have to read them when I find them. Ford is an ex SEAL who hunts down bad guys. His partner, Dana, is the team watchman. He’s saved his life and his brothers’ more than once. He’s dependable, smart and always hits his mark. He’s also back with his ex-girlfriend and Ford hates that. He doesn’t want to be attracted to Dana. He’s too young for him. He’s too good. Dana is bisexual. He’s always had the hots for Ford, but he thought he was straight. But when Ford starts to act like more of an ass than usual, Dana thinks it might be because he wants him. Is that even possible? If Ford wants Dana, he’s going to be available and make that happen. Dana can’t stop thinking about Ford and his sexy beard and leather pants. He’s big. He’s strong and he’s hot as hell. Ford can’t fight the attraction anymore. He needs Dana. Badly. He’s not looking for a quick night with him either. He wants it all. Can they be partners at work and partners at home? Will Ford trust in Dana and realize he wants all of him? I loved this story! These men. Lord help me! I was fanning myself and laughing out loud. Leather pants. Muscles. Beards. Men over thirty-five? YES! I even loved the chest hair! I mean, come on. MEN HAVE HAIR! Ford is burly and brooding, but he’s also sensitive and wants a real relationship. Dana is younger, but he’s mature. He’s sexy and beautiful, but he thinks his past defines him sometimes. They are perfect for each other. Strong when they need to be. Asking for what they want. Showing how they feel without having to use words. This book has all the things I love about reading m/m. Two strong men who aren’t afraid to show how they feel or go after what they want. But they also show their softer sides and their senses of humor. Overall it was perfect. Just what I needed! I can’t wait for the next one. The secondary characters’ storyline has me hooked already! Brian…my heart hurts for you and I need your story!
“But I won’t chase you. I shouldn’t have to. If you want me like you say, then I’m standing right here. Why are you going in the opposite direction?”
“I’ve wanted to touch your body for three years, Bradford King.”
He was ready to go but he couldn’t seem to make his right knee stop bouncing. Something was about to go wrong. He could feel it so deep. Unlike anything he’d felt during all his years enlisted. He watched painfully as Dana took off around the backs of buildings, staying hidden from the main street, looking for the right rooftop to watch from.
Brian tapped him on his shoulder to get his attention. When Ford pried his eyes away from Dana’s back and looked at his brother, he signed to him quickly. “It’s because you love him. It’s why you feel antsy. Restless. Dana’s got this. I need your head with me, Ford.”
His brother was right. Ford didn’t deny a single word. Dana was his partner when doing surveillance and intel. But on the streets, Duke and Quick were fast to put Dana’s superior marksmanship to use as their sniper and pair Brian and Ford together. Dana was a crack shot. He’d saved Duke’s life more than once. Saved Brian’s, too. Dana’s eyes were as sharp as an eagle’s and he didn’t miss his mark. But Ford needed him safe with him. Damn, he had to somehow get past this. He couldn’t work this way.
“Come on, bro.” Brian got out the truck, popping his back as he straightened his huge body.
