From New York Times best-selling author Cristin Harber and USA Today best-selling author Megan Mitcham comes an exciting collaboration… 

Jillian Cooper never wanted Callum, until a dream morphs him from her best friend's husband to a singular nocturnal fantasy. Revolted by her own mind and loyal to a fault, she refuses to give the dream life. Still, it manages to make her awkward around her only family; Amery, Callum, and their two stunning daughters. As an orphan and an Explosive Ordinance Tech with the Navy, things have a way of crashing down around her. The world crumbling call came in the form of a single car, single fatality accident. Amery died. 

While she spins in dizzying circles, the girls she's loved since they were in their momma's belly cling to her. When Callum's strong arms fortify them and keep them all from falling apart, Jillian's inner struggle reaches a breaking point. She does the only thing she can to honor her friend's to the other side of the world to contract for Titan Group, an elite private securities force in need of an EOD. 

Callum Bradfield adapts and overcomes. Even after the tragic death of his wife, his core values as a Navy SEAL march him safer waters. His gig as mission transport for Base Branch—the special operations force for the UN—isn’t as adrenaline laden, but he refuses to make his girls orphans. 

Things are beginning to regroup when Jillian bales on his girls—and him—without a word. To ensure she's safe, he hacks her personal information and follows the crumbs into Titan's database. Crossing that line gets them both under a microscope in the middle of a desert, searching for the proof they need to show their innocence, while he tries to convince Jillian he's more than just her dream. 


Did you miss what Titan World is all about? Here’s a recap from Cristin herself:

I am excited to announce the Titan World stories! From military romance and romantic suspense to contemporary romance and paranormal, a few of my favorite authors have jumped head first into our heart-pounding world and penned their stories with Titan twists. You will see familiar characters from popular, bestselling series as they collide in fantastic collaborations! Plus I’m excited to introduce two debut authors who you may already know if you are familiar with all things Team Titan.
Please join me in welcoming the Titan World authors: Claudia Connor, Gennita Low, Jessie Lane, M.L. Buchman, Megan Mitcham, Sharon Kay, Karyn Lawrence, Amber Addison, Anna Bishop Barker, and Tarina Deaton.
Quick Q&A
Am I writing a story too? You betcha! Déjà vu will be Doc Tuska’s story. He’s not a Titan team member, but he is a familiar and constant face in the series—perfect for Titan World!
Which Titan characters will be in the other author’s stories? The authors had free rein. Some took on Titan like missions while others wrote backstories to characters and expanded on their families. They took scenes from current Titan books and expanded in a new direction.
What is the reading order of the Titan World? There is NO READING order (Even if one of the retailers has randomly assigned a series number. Ahem, I’m looking at you, Amazon.).
Okay, now on to the good stuff! You can order your books here:


When you've found yourself fantasizing after a man you shouldn't want, what do you do to protect yourself? If you're Jillian Cooper, you join up with Titan and trek yourself halfway across the globe to get away from the temptation in the hopes that it goes away. 

But when you are a man like Callum, nothing is enough to keep you away from the woman who has become family to you, especially when you start pieceing together how your relationship has changed since your wife's death. 

Question is - Can these two figure it all out and find more together? Or will their past and guilt over their blooming feelings stand in their way? 

Never Mine was a quick read but very fulfilling. Jillian and Callum's relationship had its problems, but I really liked how they both attempted to do the right thing by not only each other but the entire family. I loved how Megan Mitcham brought the two teams, Base Branch and Titan together on a mission that also gave these two the perfect place to talk and try to figure out the details. Filled with a touch of suspense, a large dose of sexual tension, and a few comedic moments, Never Mine is a wonderful addition to both series and totally worth a read.
