Privilege: Book 2 S.T.U.D. Series
Bianca Bellini Wilde, a brainy and beautiful psychologist, grew up in a home where the only things she could count on were the volatility of her Sicilian mother’s temperament and the here-today-gone-tomorrow behavior of her American father. Now Bianca lives a safe, predictable life. She has a career, a perfect studio apartment in a perfect Manhattan neighborhood and, of course, she has her family. If she does ever add anything to her existence it’ll be a safe marriage, probably to one of the very nice, very safe men she dates, a condo not far from where she currently lives, and the requisite two children.
Who could possibly need anything else? Planning is everything. Chayton Olivieri, a tough, arrogant-as-hell warrior in a Special Forces military unit, was raised on a Sioux reservation by a mother who was a meth addict and a father who got even with the world by beating the crap out of Chay. Chay learned early on that the only person he could depend on was himself. That was what won him a college degree; it was what got him into the SEALs and then into STUD—Special Tactical Units Division. Chay owns a ramshackle beach house near the STUD base in Santa Barbara, California. He leads a life of danger and excitement, and he has all the beautiful women he wants. Who could possibly need anything else? Risk is everything. Bianca has just begun her career by joining a group practice. She meets with clients in a suite of rooms on a quiet street in the East Sixties. She’s good at what she does. Helping people conquer their demons is important—and if sometimes those demons seem nothing more than the selfish dissatisfactions of people with too much money and too much time on their hands, well, who is she to judge? Chay’s missions take him from the mountains of Afghanistan to the streets of Mogadishu. He excels at what he does. It’s demanding. It’s exciting. It’s for a cause he believes in—most of the time. And if he’s not sure what he’ll do with his life years from now when he’s no longer a STUD, at least he knows what he won’t do. Settling down in one place, marriage, kids... Great for other people, but never for him. Especially not for him. As different as they are, the heat Bianca and Chay generate is impossible to deny. The raw sexuality of it panics Bianca and makes Chay long for more. Still, after a couple of quick encounters, they both know it’s best to stay away from each other. And they do—until Bianca becomes the target of a serial killer, and the only man who can possibly save her is Chay. Which is when things begin to get really, really complicated.
Tanner Akecheta, whose last name means “warrior” in Sioux, is part of a highly skilled military group, the Special Tactical Units Division, otherwise known as S.T.U.D.
