The Lonely Heart Series New Book: The Grunt

Staff Sergeant Brett Black has a bad feeling that something is going to go terribly wrong.  And as a Recon Marine, he pays attention to his gut.  Only nothing can prepare him for what he encounters when he arrives at home from the base.  His wife is leaving him, and there is nothing he can do about it. 

Abandoned with a kid, the super alpha-male has to become domesticated quickly or find a willing substitute to help him with his son.  Only the substitute he finds is no substitution. 

Courtney Lawless is a true wild card.  The budding librarian loves the classics and carries herself like a lady by day.  But she also is full of life and surfs the waves of the Atlantic Ocean by night.  Since her parents won’t pay for college because of bad decisions in her past, the reformed bad-girl takes a job as Brett’s live-in nanny to finish paying for school. 

Brett has never seen a woman of such complex duality.  Used to a wife who won’t clean, cook or even talk to him, when he starts to live with Courtney, he realizes what he’s been missing his entire life.  Educated, amazing and refreshingly honest, the only thing that that this transparent beauty hides from her new boss is that she’s also the Lieutenant Colonel’s daughter. 

Faced with another deployment to Afghanistan soon, the brooding Marine is forced to come out his shell to fight for what he loves, only this time, the war is at home.

Enjoy the interracial must-read romance of the summer, The Grunt, the third a longest book in Latrivia S. Nelson’s Lonely Heart Series and today.

  1. I cant wait to read The Grunt; everyone of the lonely hearts stories have been good. The Medlov’s should be a HBO mini series, that way Saving Anya would not be the end of this family stories. Everyone should see the Medlov men and the strong women beside them. Of course it would be as good as any God Father movies, better I think. Work on that for us L. lOl Let us see your books on the big screen and you receiving one of those little gold men or whatever they give out for the BEST movies!

    • Kaye,

      I’m working on something like that right now. It has to be hush, hush because of all the legal stuff. But it is being pitched to some people who could put it on the big screen. Keep your fingers crossed. I love all the Godfather stories. They were so well written and the movies!!! I could go on and on about those all night. Looks like we share something in common:-)

  2. Hiya Trivi,

    Haven’t checked-in in a long time but kept up with all your work and loved every bit of it! I really really loved this book. Especially knowing what’s it’s like to date someone who defends are country. I love Brett and am so happy he found happiness…he’d went through hell..haha.. Courtney was just what he needed. I love your version of the “Alpha Male” in your writings..not everyone get’s it right 😉 This is definitely my favorite in the Lonely Heart Series!

    Patiently awaiting for more..

  3. This is another winner for you Mrs. L. Your stories always pull me in and keep me up late ’cause I can’t put it down until I finish. I found this book to be quite informative about Marines. I look forward to your next book for I know I won’t be disappointed.

    • Thanks Catelyn,

      This one hit home for me, because of Adam. The next one out will either be Gracie’s Dirty Little Secret or Taming the Rock Star. It depends on which one I finish and like the most. Decisions. Decisions. I hope not disappoint. Thanks so much for your support!

  4. Hi Latrivia,

    New fan here! I’m in love with the Medlov family, when will you release the next installment on the early years of Dmitry’s life?

    • Jasmine,

      Welcome. Welcome. I actually had written V4 but I hated it. I looked over it. I read it. I read it aloud. Then I trashed it. Now, I’m writing something better. This has to be a very good volume because it wraps up the first leg of his life and then moves on to him being “The Boss”. I don’t want to disappoint you guys and his character is really strong. So, I have to spend some time thinking about how he’s going to handle some realy hairy situations. It will be out soon. I know it’s taking forever. I’m sorry:-(

  5. Mrs. Nelson,

    You’ve done it again! I am so addicted to your love stories. They move at just at the right speed, I just hate when they end.
    I really appeciate the way you bring depth to your charcter’s lives and their struggles.

    Congrats one being #1.


  6. Loved the book!! Well developed, sexy, and sweet. And the cover model made me wanna lick my iPhone but I know where this things been sooo ummm no. 🙂 contgrats on a great read!

    • Thanks, Jennifer.

      Working on Dmitry IV now. I hated the story once it was done. So, I trashed it and went back to the drawing board. I’m hoping that when I’m finished, this one will be something I can put my stamp of approval on.
