We'll take "Give Us A Freaking Break" for $200, please. To say the Santorno-Youngblood extended family has had a rough couple of years is something of an understatement. Not that they don't enjoy a good explosion just as much as the next guys, but the fun factor plummets when it's your house that's going boom. Toss in a couple of kidnappings, a few maniacal ex-boyfriends, and a smattering of gunshot wounds and these guys have learned not to say "what next"? Their lives just never seem to calm down long enough to enjoy some playtime. Josh Reynolds plans to change that by marrying Jason McKinley in Hawaii and bringing the whole gang along for some good times. Josh and Jason's marriage is not the only happy beginning of new life; several of the guys get great news while they are enjoying the island paradise. Once back in Fort Worth, the team gets right back to work, with a little extracurricular activity humming along in the background. Greg Farrelli-Reynolds and Tyler Youngblood spring some unwelcome news on their husbands -- right before the team takes on some of its toughest missions. Josh's outrageous former college roommate is recruited as a translator to help the team crush its Russian enemies. Chris Stevens meets Dimitri Voronova, a Russian assassin who just happens to be friends with one of the Santorno guards. The sexy banter flies as quickly as the bullets when they fight to rescue one of the group's own. Oh, about those maniacal ex-boyfriends -- what is the deal?! The Santorno-Youngblood family makes it crystal clear that they are not to be messed with. Unfortunately, some people just aren't very smart

The tight-knit Youngblood-Santorno extended family is trying to put their lives back together following the loss of a beloved member. At the same time, they struggle to head off the danger that may come next. The family is expanding by leaps and bounds with the addition of new friends and newborn babies. While several couples grapple with changing diapers, Jason McKinley and Josh Reynolds struggle with their changing relationship after the death of Jason's brother -- who was Josh's fiance. As the men fight their mutual attraction, Stefan and Jordan Youngblood fight to keep the family safe. Someone from the past has an explosive agenda that puts everyone in danger. Against a backdrop of increasing terror, unlikely relationships form and others move to new levels of commitment. Because if they've learned anything recently, it's that life is fleeting. But when you take on one member of the group, you get the whole dangerous package. Stefan hopes they might be able to relax for once, but he isn't stupid. He knows that with his surname, it's just not possible. Because Santorno is not just a name. It's a way of life."

Stefan Sanders knows two things: He never wants to be like his father. He's going to die if someone doesn't remove the tumor in his head. Stefan is the son of a notorious and ruthless mobster, which effectively scares off any doctor he'd let anywhere near his brain. Enter pompous, rude Jordan Youngblood, a gifted neurosurgeon who isn't afraid of anyone and loves a good challenge. The doctor is his own biggest fan, and lacks even a passable bedside manner - but if he get's the job done, who is Stefan to complain? Jordan Youngblood knows one thing: He's never going to get close to a patient again. Ever. That rule works well until Damon Santorno walks into his office. Jordan's a genius, and it doesn't take one to figure out that Damon means business. His son is dying of a brain tumor and even with all his power and money, Damon can't save him. But Jordan can. With a not-so-gentle nudge from the older Santorno, Jordan agrees to take on Stefan's case. He expects one more notch on his brilliant scalpel, not a dimpled patient who is completely sweet and impossible to avoid. Things get complicated as Jordan strives to save Stefan's life and his own heart. They say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Stefan and Jordan find that there really are plenty of shades of gray between black and white, right and wrong.

Something powerful is stirring in the darkness. Something so ancient that even creatures who've been alive for hundreds of years have long since discounted this new threat as nothing more than myth. Geoffrey knows even less than most about this rising menace. His memories were all violently ripped away from him, leaving nothing of his past but dreams containing haunting glimpses of a beautiful girl. A chance encounter offers up a possible link to his past, but forces beyond his control are threatening to push him into the middle of a conflict that could sweep away everything, and everyone he's been fighting so hard to protect. This time, saving the girl may very well cost Geoffrey his soul.

What happens when you mix one part close family, one part assassination plot, a pinch of 'love is in the air', a big dollop of a man so vicious he doesn't even feel pain, sprinkle it with suave mob boss and then wash it all down with lots of vodka? Kaboom! The Youngblood extended family and Damon Santorno's organization have joined forces with mob families across Europe who share their mission of ridding the planet of the worst kind of human garbage - human traffickers, drug lords and murderers. When one such mission goes badly wrong, the family takes a hit as one of its own is severely injured and may never fully recover. In the wake of the heartache, they are introduced to badass assassin and all-around scary dude Vince Markov, who agrees to work with them. Vince IS vicious, but he likes the team -- and something about sweet Dylan McAllister touches what passes for his heart. When he comes face to face with the man whose father he brutally murdered, will his time with the group end before it even gets started? Or will he have to take yet another life to survive? Against the backdrop of blood red, there's also plenty of pink and blue as the Christmas stork delivers not one, not two - but four precious babies into the world. Stefan Youngblood is over the moon but he worries that one of his children will end up with a proverbial knife through his heart.
