Behind the Book: Hard Play by Sheryl Nantus


Behind the Book with Sheryl Nantus

I grew up in the 1980’s when there was plenty of action-adventure television series. The A-Team, Magnum PI, Miami Vice and, of course, MacGyver! They were addictive shows to watch, filled with tough, ingenious men who knew how to get the job done and if the law needed to be bent a little bit… well, they bent it and then bent it back to stay on the right side of the law. The bad guys went to jail or got their comeuppance and the victims came out on the winning side.

I’ve also been a bit of a crime junkie. My shelf is filled with books on various famous cases and my husband is a rabid Jack the Ripper fan. I loved Devil in the White City because it introduced me to H.H. Holmes, likely the first American serial killer. I read a lot of stories and saw documentaries about how at times the legal system wasn’t able to help the victims, the red tape and administration sometimes tying up resources and keeping law enforcement from doing what it wanted and needed to do.

When I first began putting together a concept for a new series I looked back at my love for those television shows and combined it with what I’d seen and heard over the years, resulting in the Delta Force Brotherhood. Men who know what needs to be done and who know how to do it, dedicated to their jobs and devoted to justice – and to the women who stand beside them, just as tough and independent in their own way.

I hope you’ll come along with me as we visit the Devil’s Playground in Las Vegas and sit at the bar, waiting and watching as the Brotherhood help those who have nowhere else to go – and get the job done no matter what the cost.



About Hard Play:

Ex-special forces ranger Dylan McCourt is a stone cold killer who cares only about his military brothers and doing what’s right. He’s used to giving orders and has zero patience for bullshit. Most people tremble when they look him in the eye, but not his infuriatingly sexy new rescue mission, Jessie Lyon. She just juts her chin and says she’s not leaving without clearing her father’s name, to hell with his rules. And was that a one finger salute he sees in her eyes or his imagination? Either way, he knows this is one job his training might not have prepared him for.
