This is a good start to a new series. These books connect to the other series just by mere mention of the characters in some of the other series.
In book 1, Against the Wild, Dylan Brodie has purchased a run down lodge up in Alaska. He invites Lane Bishop to come and help decorate and fix up the place. They get more than they bargained for. His brother Nick comes to help when their lives are in danger. With his help, they solve the mystery while Dylan and Lane connect on a more deeper level.
Book 2, Against the Sky, is where Nick gets his story. Nick heads to Las Vegas for some needed down time after quitting the force.
There he encounters Samantha Hollis. They have a romantic fling and then go their separate way not realizing how entangled their lives would become. It's a good story about taking chances.
