Dani Whittaker gave up the Washington political scene to find a life that isn’t built around scandal and drama. Dog sitting for a friend puts an extremely annoying and very tormented Navy S.E.A.L back in her life. Dani hates that Nash Wellsley lights up every nerve ending in her body. Especially because he’s made it clear that his future lies in the direction of another woman.

When her new job launches her into the headlights of a crazy lady, and Nash is the one to sign up to protect her, they agree to a temporary alliance that they both know won’t end well.

Can they make it through the fire or will they end up more damaged than ever before?

  • Beautifully written, emotional, sexy, and full of depth with exciting twists and turns. I highly recommend it!” Angela’s Book Addiction

  • “A sweeping romance that includes love and sacrifice plus the importance of family, I fell hard and fast for Mac Whittaker and Georgie Astrella.” Goodreads Reviewer

  • “Mac is WOW SWOON WORTHY! His heart makes mine melt!” -The Guide to Romance Novels

  • “LJ Evans delivers a powerful story of love that will have you laughing, cheering, crying and at some parts--fanning yourself from the heat.” Goodreads Reviewer

  • This story has it all: great lead characters, intriguing secondary characters, a visit to Ava and Eli from the first book in the series, a bit of political corruption, international flare, great families and family drama, as well as chemistry and passion.” Goodreads Reviewer

  • “LJ Evans has a way of writing characters that dig into my heart and stay there. “Goodreads Reviewer

  • “I laughed and cried my whole way through the book in just one day, because I literally couldn’t put it down.” Goodreads Reviewer

  • “I’ve read all of Ms. Evan’s books. She brings her characters to life on the page. Her writing is vibrant and full of emotion. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend any of them because her stories are more than just romance, they are life with all of its ups and downs, decisions and risks and that glorious hope that happily-ever-after does exist. Forged by Sacrifice is no different.” Goodreads Reviewer

  • I love reading a book that I can just get lost in....lose track of time, forget it’s not real life, forget these are fictional character and not people I know....this is one of those books. Goodreads Reviewer

  • The writing is masterful with so many emotions and twists that brought real tears, by the way, but also plenty of love, passion, and laughter! The heart of this book is about family in all the ways you can create it, and the interactions between all the various characters draw you in and make you want to be part of their group too!” Goodreads review
