“Steel Valor,” the second installment in Bex Dane’s “Knight Security” series, elevates the military romance genre to new heights with its thrilling narrative, complex characters, and emotional depth. This standalone novel not only delivers an adrenaline-pumping chase but also explores the vulnerabilities and strengths that lie within the human spirit.

At the heart of the story is Steel Knight, a SEAL haunted by his past and driven by a relentless need to stay in motion. His latest mission involves capturing Brandy Ballinda, a street vendor with a penchant for cons, who finds herself embroiled in a dangerous situation far beyond her usual petty crimes. From the moment Steel sets his sights on Brandy, the chase morphs into something far more significant than a simple mission. Steel sees in Brandy not just a fugitive to be apprehended but a chance at redemption and a future he had never allowed himself to envision.


Brandy, for her part, is a master of deception, having honed her skills in the art of illusion and trickery from a young age within her circus family. Yet, when confronted by Steel, she finds herself facing a man who looks past her facades and sees the genuine person underneath. Their interactions are charged with intensity, as trust and betrayal become themes as convoluted and gripping as the chase itself.

Dane masterfully crafts a narrative that is as much about the internal battles both characters face as it is about the external chase. Steel’s struggle with his demons and Brandy’s fight for autonomy and recognition beyond her con artist persona add layers of complexity to their relationship. The push and pull between them, fueled by a mixture of distrust and undeniable attraction, creates a dynamic that is as unpredictable as it is compelling.

“Steel Valor” stands out for its authentic portrayal of military operations and the psychological toll such a life exacts on those who live it. Dane’s attention to detail and her ability to weave technical accuracy with emotional storytelling set this novel apart. The action scenes are vividly described, placing readers in the heart of the tension, while quieter moments allow for introspection and character growth.

The novel also delves into themes of redemption, belonging, and the transformative power of love. Steel and Brandy’s journey from adversaries to allies and potentially lovers is fraught with challenges and revelations that test their understanding of themselves and each other. Their growth, both individually and together, is a testament to Dane’s skill in character development.

“Steel Valor” is a thrilling addition to the “Knight Security” series, blending high-stakes military action with deep emotional resonance. Bex Dane has crafted a story that is not only about the chase but also about finding home, healing, and hope in the most unexpected places. Readers looking for a military romance that offers both heart-pounding suspense and heartwarming moments will find “Steel Valor” to be an unforgettable read.

Steel Valor

A fugitive on the run.
A SEAL on a mission to capture her.
And a high-stakes chase you don't want to miss.

I'm stuck on a speeding train. Racing from one risky op to another to keep the memories at bay. If I slow down, my head plays tricks on me and I lose control. So I'm hunting her now. Brandy Ballinda. The sexy street vendor who got herself into a world of trouble. She makes me want to jump off the tracks and get my feet grounded, so I can be the man she needs. I'm not the only one pursuing her, but I'm the only one who'll catch her. Brandy was meant to be mine.

Growing up in a circus family, I started running cons at a young age. Make them believe in what you're selling and you've got them hooked. But I blew it when I tried to trick Steel Knight. He saw through my act and into my soul. Instead of bolting like every other man in my life had done, he stayed. I don't know if I can trust this mystery man with his seductive words and enchanting smile. Maybe he's playing me for a fool. But if his act turns out to be legit, he could be my hero.
