Samantha Cole continues the wonderful Trident Security legacy with our first Omega team story and our hunky pow veteran Logan " Cowboy" Reese.
Could you start as a new reader at this point, well yes Ms Cole always does a fabulous job of given character bios and back story, with that said why would you want to miss one bit of this series?
My recommendation if you are new Go back to book one "Leather and Lace"; and enjoy all these hunky Dom's!

Clues as to whom the Kink Killer are spread throughout her Trident Series and into her Trident/Omega Series Crossover book Mountain Of Evil, and FINALLY we find out who it is! A Dead Man's Pulse would be an okay starting point for those who haven't read Samantha A Cole's other works, but it is definitely best enjoyed if you begin with Leather & Lace, Trident Security Series Book 1.

The Trident & Omega Team's family gets slightly larger through the introduction of two engaging characters, Logan Re

For those who are fans of Samantha's, this book has been long waited for. We finally find out who the Kink Killer is!

First though, lets get to the story. I hurt so bad for Logan. Being a prisoner of war and hearing and watching his buddies get tortured and then murdered would break anyone. And it almost did break Logan. Enter Ian Sawyer! He sees something in Logan and wants him on his team to catch the Kink Killer. After agreeing to Ian's terms, Logan is paired up with Dakota, a police officer

5 Star WOW Don't think just buy

A heartfelt look at the toll PTSD has on a person’s life and the road to recovery. Everything about this book was great; flow, character dynamic and storyline. This book had a little of everything suspense, emotional ups and downs, sensuality between H/h and the characters we have all come to love.

Logan “Cowboy” Reese is a deadman with a pulse and his new job with Trident Security is a lifeline he is grabbing onto with both hands. Mi

So first and foremost it makes me giddy to see book 1. This means we are on a journey of more to come. Second bringing awareness to PTSD and prisoners of war -- hell yes. Third a new pup named Fubar -- damn right. Brilliant name choice by the way.

The title is a sad yet real description of a man who survived while his brothers didn't. War is a bastard. Its the devil wrapped in a nice bow with a one way ticket to hell (and that's my

This is the start of the Trident Security Omega Team series. It is advised to first read the Trident Security series in order to avoid spoilers. If not, this book can be read as a standalone novel.

Logan AKA Cowboy is immediately attracted to Dakota. She is not impressed with him when they first meet, as he assumes she needs his help - but she can take care of herself. He meets her again later and the sparks fly all over the room. Now he just hopes he can impress her enough that she gives him a c

What happens when a killer is terrorizing the community that the Sexy-6-pack loves to play in? Samantha Cole has dropped hints throughout her Trident Series and her spin-off on the Omega team but now we find out just who it is but not before we meet Logan, a Marine who survived when his team didn't and lives with it every day. His first assignment is to partner up with the sassy and snarky Tampa PD officer. Yes, familiar faces (and abs) show up. Yes there is some pantymeltingohmygodyouneedacolds ...more

Finally, the conclusion to the kink killer! I think Samantha is an amazing suspense writer, she kept me guessing and on the edge of my seat until the very end! Incredibly complex storyline, twisting and turning with an always amazing cast of characters.
Absolutely loved the faithful portrayal of Cowboy, and all he endured and continues to suffer with PTSD. Dakota was a strong, independent woman unashamed of being submissive. The character of Charlie really got to me, for being s

Samantha Cole has the ability to combine elements of military and police special operations and private investigation with BDSM romance and pull off an intriguing mix of mystery, thriller, and romance all while holding the reader riveted and enthralled. A Dead Man's Pulse is the first full-length novel in Ms. Cole's The Omega Team series, a spin-off series from her original Trident Security series.

Military, Law enforcement/ Fire officers as well as many agency staff put their lives on the line every single day that they serve, most hopefully live through and for the most part enjoy their chosen career, but there are also many that don't. Some are killed in action, some injured and for those, many it is life changing. For others it is more of a mind injury a result of things they have seen, heard or experienced, maybe being captured and tortured or form an extreme fire with massive loss of ...more

A Dead Man's Pulse is Samantha Cole's latest release in her Trident Security series. Each book can be read as a standalone but reading the whole series gives you added insight & background. The Kink Killer is a plot line that has been ongoing in the background of several of the books but it all comes to a head in this one.

Oh wow, Samantha’s best book to date. What a heart stopping read this was, I have never wanted to skip pages so bad to see where the story was going but I held off and was taken on one hell of a roller coaster ride.

The book starts with Logan in captivity. Hearing his team mates being tortured to death and witnessing the aftermath. Thankfully, Logon gets rescued but part of him is still left in that cell and he isn’t sure he can ever really get over the hell.

Samantha A Cole introduced us to the hot, sexy, and dominant Alpha’s of Trident Security’s Alpha Team, and it’s been quite the amazing ride. The Sawyer brother’s have amassed an elite team of ex-military and ex-police members that do everything from protect princesses, to thwart members of ISIS. But their latest job hits them close to home.

Samantha has done it again!!! She has written one hell of a masterpiece. ( 👈 That doesn't surprise me though. Every book she has written is brilliant. ) Sam's writing is always very well researched and carefully written. She gives her characters real life instances. For example, PTSD rears its ugly head in ADMP. There is some parts of this book that can be difficult to read. But it is necessary in order to understand Logan.

A DEAD MAN’S PULSE is the first book in The Omega Team’s series, a spin-off of the Trident Security Series. I would recommend reading books 1-7 in the TS Series before picking this one up, just so that you will know the other characters who appear.

The best stories have two lines of action. In this one, we are getting to know “Cowboy” and Dakota. That is the romance and it is hot. It is sexy. It is about learning to trust. The second story is about that killer. The Kink Killer has been plaguing t

This was an extremely enjoyable story. That had me hooked from the very start. Even though there wasn't as much action or suspense as some of the previous books in this series. But what there was did keep my attention. Especially during the last few chapters. When the "Kink Killer" is revealed. As those few chapters really had me on the edge of my seat. Although I was a little disappointed with who the killer was. Only because I was expecting it to be someone more prominent to the story and

Truly suspenseful with amazing romance. Finally, we find out who the Kink Killer is and boy I did not see that coming. With true Samantha A.

There is definitely no way that I could choose but I must say Logan stole my heart with all he has to overcome and the fact that he feels he could never settle down because of the trauma he has been through.
