Excerpt
I shove away the damp blanket and prop myself against the headboard, my eyes darting around the dark room, searching for something familiar, searching for something to latch on to, but there’s nothing. Nothing except for the package I’m too scared to touch. 

Bang! Bang! Bang!

Stay down! Don’t move.

I can’t seem to catch my breath. There’s a scream stuck in my lungs and it desperately wants to come out.

She’s bleeding. Get a paramedic here. 

How many fingers do you see? Can you hear me, sweetie?

I pull my legs up to my chest and rock my body, wanting to stop the noise from getting into my head. 

Is anyone still inside? I’m looking for my brother. 

Sweetie, I need you to let me see your hands. 

Up until now, the memories of the aftermath have been only a shapeless blur. I’m not sure why it’s all coming back to me now, at four in the morning. I remember the police arriving and more gunshots. I remember the paramedics taking me outside. I remember sitting in the van while some woman in uniform is trying to talk to me, and I remember watching Mikah moving through the crowd outside the club. There’s blood dripping down his cheek, but I don’t think he’s hurt. I think the blood is mine. He stops one of the officers and asks him questions, and I can tell by how fast his hands move that he’s panicking. There’s a short exchange and then they’re gone. 

Now I’m in the hospital, and my parents tell me Dakota was shot to death during the attack. That’s all I get. No details. They don’t tell me how many times he was shot or where he was standing when it happened or if it was an instant death or a slow one where he lay there, terrified, watching the horror around him. 

I replay this moment in my head several times, wondering if I should have said or done something differently. Cried maybe. But I didn’t. I just sat there in silence, my hands and my face bleeding. I sat there waiting to wake up, waiting to snap back into my normal life. But it never happened.

Synopsis
Our greatest risk was the one we never took …

It was an accidental spring fling three years ago—one week spent in the mountains of Big Sur and no one was the wiser. Ignore the fact that Tobias James was my neighbor and my best friend’s older brother. Or that upon our return his hoop dreams were waiting for him, robbing us of any potential future we could have shared.

Now, I’m fulfilling my own dreams in L.A. and my biggest dream of all is about to come true. The last thing I expected was for my past and my present to collide.

Not now. Not here. Not him.

But he struts back into my life like he never even left. Unfortunately, I’ll never forget what happened after he did.

The ball is in my court, but Tobias isn’t below stealing—my power, my resolve, my heart… When he wants a second chance to reignite our connection, my answer is simple. We can’t.

Not unless we defy the rules our dreams were built on and risk everything.

*Defying Gravity is a STANDALONE sports romance in an interconnected series.

Excerpt #2
She ran a hand through my hair, roughing it at the top, while I gazed at her, soaking in the way her light-green eyes looked almost brown in the dim overhead lights. “I guess this is goodbye, huh?”

I shook my head as my brows pulled together. “No.” 

“Tobias,” she said, her tone soft and scolding.

“It’s not.” I searched her expression, praying I wasn’t being an idiot. All this time together, the nights we’d shared, the secrets we’d kept. It couldn’t only be me. I swallowed. “The way I see it, I’ll be focused on basketball, and you’ll have dance. That doesn’t mean we can’t talk. That doesn’t mean we’ll never see each other again.”

She looked lost in her thoughts for a minute, and I knew she was considering my words. “So, what? We’re long-distance … friends?” 

I leaned forward, placing my forehead against hers. “You know as well as I that you can’t put a label on what we are. We’re just Amelia and Tobias. We’re moon and earth, living among the stars and sun. We’re everything. And no matter the distance, we still make sense together.”

Her next breath hitched as she sucked it in. “That’s beautiful, but gravity weakens with distance, remember?”

I shook my head, refusing to accept her point. “Not when it comes to us.” I swallowed around the thickness building in my throat. “Not when we defy gravity.”

I kissed her hard, pulling her body close while her mouth molded to mine. We fit so well, not even she could deny that. And she didn’t. Not when I stripped her of her clothes and lay her down. Not when I buried my head between her legs and stroked her devilishly with my tongue. And not when my fingers pushed inside her, working her center until she screamed my name like it was a curse word.

A layer of sweat coated her body when I pulled her into my arms and wrapped her legs around my waist. Our mouths stayed on each other as I walked her to her bedroom and placed her on her bed. I yanked my clothes off next and kicked them to the side before sitting at the edge of her bed and pulling a condom from her nightstand. My cock was hard as stone as I rolled it on, already missing the feel of her wrapped around me.

And when I hovered above her, fitting myself to her body and readying myself for that first thrust, I leaned in to steal another kiss before placing my mouth on her ear. “I’ll find my way back to you, Amelia.” I bit down on tender skin and nudged against her entrance, relishing the moan that slipped past her throat. “I’m about to make sure you don’t forget that.”

Synopsis
Heaven

I was fourteen the first time I laid eyes on the smoking hot, silver-eyed, goalie. Damon Wolfe was the most gorgeous boy I’d ever seen. All it took was one glance, one sentence and my heart was his. But I was too young and he was too broken.

Seven years later, he’s the biggest off the ice player in the NHL and I’m his virginal best friend.

Of course, I have the perfect solution to that particular problem, but Damon keeps on refusing to be the one to vanquish my chastity. He claims he doesn’t want to ruin our friendship, that he’s not good enough for me. Yet, somehow his eyes say something different whenever he looks at me.

Just one night, that’s all I’m asking. What’s the worst that can happen?

Wolfe
I was mesmerized by Heaven Andersen the first time I looked into her sparkling turquoise eyes. She was a teenage kid with a mouth full of braces and bruised knees, but she was the most beautiful girl I’d ever seen—like a fairy-tale princess. With one look, she sent all my inner demons running. But she was just a kid and I was too damaged.

Seven years later, she’s my best friend. My best friend with a single-minded mission—to get laid. She wants me to take her virginity and teach her about sex. But she’s an off-limits, flawless diamond girl, and so far out of the realm of anything my blackened heart is looking for or deserves it’s laughable.

So, how come I’m not laughing? How come my best friend is the first thing I think about in the morning and last thing I think about at night? More importantly, what am I going to do to protect her—from me?

Release Date: July 18, 2019
Genre:
Adult Contemporary Romance
Links: Goodreads | Amazon | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AU

Synopsis
I’ve always been three things: Loving daughter, devoted sister, and cynical romantic. Okay, maybe not always the last one, that didn’t happen until my ex-boyfriend cheated on me, and not with just anyone…my best friend.

One year later, and I’m over relationships, only interested in the occasional one-night stand. I don’t fall in love with them, and I don’t expect them to fall in love with me. I won’t be waiting around for their call or stalking their social media—until I discover that one of my little trysts indirectly holds my family’s fate in his hands. So, with a little convincing from my older and much wiser sister, I break my own rules for the sake of my family.

He’s the exact opposite of me: Serious, detached and arrogant. Did I mention that he looks like he should be on a billboard for a cologne ad in the middle of Times Square, or the sexy way he botches up my name in his German accent? Well, he does…but I refuse to relent, remaining committed to my plan. Strictly business, no emotions involved, and nobody will get hurt…until nobody turns into somebody I find myself needing more than I ever thought possible.

What do you do when a one-night stand turns into so much more than you bargained for? And how do you stop one lie that’s getting bigger each time you’re with him from caving everything in around you? I know in the end someone is going to get hurt, but I’m powerless to stop it. And for him…I think I may be willing to have my heart broken all over again.

THE NIGHT WE MET Teaser

Excerpt
“We don’t have that here. All of our German beers are listed—”

“How do you know it’s German?” He toyed with me.

“Well, I just assumed since you were German that the beer you asked for was German as well.”

“How do you know I’m German?”

“Your accent.”

“You assume a lot of things, Emmeline. Don’t you? Perhaps you shouldn’t be so quick in your assumptions.”

What the hell was his problem? There was no way in hell I could pretend to even like this guy, and judging by his self-important attitude, it wasn’t like I would even be afforded the opportunity to. Bridgette was going to have to go at it alone on this.

“You’re correct on one point, Emmeline.”

“My name is Emme!” I snapped.

He picked up my license still sitting on the bar and studied it keenly. “That is not what your identification says.”

“Emmeline is my proper name. My friends call me Emme.”

Even that stomach flipping smile that had spread across his face wasn’t making up for his arrogance. Look away from the dimples, Em. This guy is an ass!

“Well, since I’m always proper, and I’m not your friend…I call you Emmeline.”

My impatience and anger were escalating at an equal pace. “Okay, fine, since this will be the last time we ever speak, then you can call me whatever you want. Thank you for returning my license, and if there isn’t anything I can get you to drink, then have a nice night.”

His hand covered mine as I went to snatch my license from the bar. “There you go making those assumption again.” There was a spark to his eyes, hinting at amusement over my flustered state.

“Okay…and do tell, what are those assumptions I seem to be making?”

“The beer I requested is Belgian, not German.”

“Well, forgive me. I’ll make a mental note of that, in case another pompous German or whatever it is you are comes in and requests it.” I wanted to walk away and be done with the entire conversation, but his hand was still covering mine with a tightening grip.

Synopsis
Sorceress, enchantress, deceiver, murderer—I’ve been called all those and more, some that might make you blush. Lucky for me, I couldn’t care less what people think about me. I’ve had my sights set on one thing for the last thousand years, and that’s all that matters. I’ll do whatever it takes to find the cauldron, even if it means taking on a partner. They call him a knight in shining armor. For me, he’s my golden ticket. He fell into my lap, quite literally, and now he’s going to help me get what I want.

I don’t play particularly well with others, but he’s the best shot I’ve got, so I’ll hop on that train and hope it gets me where I need to go. He thinks he’s going to crack my shell and see what’s on the inside, like maybe there’s a warm gooey center to make up for the hard exterior. He’s in for a world of disappointment. Everything soft and delicate about me became rough and hardened a long time ago. I’m Morgan Le Fay, and I’m the villain in this story.

MIDNIGHT'S END Teaser

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt #3
He didn’t know what he was saying, but I wanted the words to be true—wanted so desperately that I couldn’t contradict them. It was selfish and brash, but at that moment, that was who I was. I needed that one window of time to be solely about want and pleasure—no thought to consequences or reasons, no worries about plans or implications. 

Just me and Knight.

His hard body rested over mine, his eyes searching my face for a response to his profession. I sucked in a fortifying breath, then turned my head to the side, presenting the delicate length of my neck.

A rattling growl rumbled from his chest as he flipped me onto my stomach and lay fully over my body. Knight gently pulled my hair away from my face before his breath ghosted past the sensitive skin on my neck. His nose traced a slow line up toward my hair before his lips retraced his path back down, sending a cascade of goosebumps down my arms and legs.

“Tell me you want this,” he whispered next to my ear.

“Yes.” My voice cracked as I said the word, and I hoped he would see it as a product of need and anticipation. The truth was, my niggling conscience was rising to the surface.

Knight leaned around to meet my eyes. “If I do this, there’s no going back. Tell me you understand.”

I admired his sentiment, but I knew better. 

Nothing was forever.

“I understand your meaning, but life is dynamic. There may be no going back, but there is always change. You want me to be the hero—the misunderstood girl who’s been painted the villain. That’s not the case. When you understand fully, things will change. They always do. I’m willing to give myself to you with the understanding nothing is permanent. If you hear my meaning and want me regardless, I’m yours.”

There. I had done what I could to ease my conscience. Let no one say I had tricked him into my bed. I may not have told him everything, but I had given him enough to know there was more to my story. 

His eyes blazed, but instead of the wariness I had expected, there was only triumph in his golden gaze.

Lucky for him, all Cygnian princesses have one true weakness. They cannot resist cooking up crazy plans to tackle unsolvable problems.

Nyleena has plans of her own and none of them involve Luck. She is out for blood. All the people who made her life hell will be dealt with, and she’s going to find every single one of them and take them out. Right after she solves this one last unsolvable problem…

How not to fall in love with your soulmate.

Lady Luck is a sexy hate-f*ck of a story about a wild princess, six hot brothers trying to tame her, bad relationship advice from killer sexbots, your favorite evil, but misunderstood, dragonbee bot, and a repentant AI trapped in a sex prison with a succubus.

LADY LUCK Teaser

 —————————————————————————

Excerpt 2
NYLEENA

The only thing I hate more about Luck than the fact that we’re forced to fuck every day to keep our sanity is his lack of dirty talk.

He refuses to talk to me or let me talk to him.

That makes me ragey. Because dirty talk is my favorite and he won’t engage.

But one of these days…

“Come,” he commands me.

“Are you kidding?” I ask. “We just started.”

He slaps his hand over my mouth and the rage that was only imaginary two seconds ago manifests in all its glorious reality when I wrap my legs around his middle and squeeze him so tight with my thighs, he gasps. 

Take that, asshole. 

He glares at me, momentarily distracted. And I use that distraction to my advantage by twisting my body and flipping him over so he’s on his back.

He’s still inside me, the heads of both his cocks swollen in place. Locking us together until we come and relieve the lust hidden deep inside our genetically-matched souls. 

My tits bounce on his chest and he grabs my hair, shoots me a warning glare.

I know what that glare says. Don’t make me bleed, Nyleena.

He shoots this look at me every time, and every time I take it as a challenge.

I raise my hand up.

“Don’t,” he growls.

“Oh,” I say. “He can speak. Tell me more,” I purr.

“Do not—”

But I do it anyway.

I swipe my nails right down the side of his cheek and hiss at him like a feral cat.

He wraps his muscled arms around my upper body, squeezing me tight as he pulls me down on to his chest.

I’ll admit, Luck is strong. And when he gets me in a lock like this, there’s no way I can escape until he lets me.

But I don’t make it easy.

I squirm and twist in his grip. All the while his hips are thrusting up with powerful force. So hard that his balls are slapping against my clit.

This momentarily takes my mind off the forced submission and I float a little.

“Come,” he commands again, growling out the word in my ear. “Right. Fucking—”

I do.

I come.

The light locked up inside me pulses out in flickering waves at first. And then it stops just as his cocks contract inside me. My luminous flux holds steady for a moment so when his contractions are over, and his sperm is ready to explode into me, my flux knows what to do and it bursts into fractals of geometrically-shaped light that dance and crackle around our bodies. Electrifying them like charged ions flowing out from a sun on a matrix of deep, dark space-time.

He throws me over to the side, his cocks slipping out of me, dripping with our shared release, and breathes hard and heavy.

I lie there with eyes closed. Not caring that he just literally threw me away.

Because this is the best part.

I wait for him to tuck his dicks away, mumble out, “Thank you,” as he walks off and leaves me alone.

And then… I let out the last of my climax.

Because I never give him all of me. 

I have one little hidden, secret surprise that he will never know about.

I open my eyes and come for real. Silver-laced lavender light shoots up and out, bouncing off the UV reflectors above the grass and flowers, and comes back down to blanket my body, and this entire secret garden, in a soft, purple glow.

And all the plants around me grow ten times taller from my sexy, lust-filled, nutritious light.

Excerpt
“What time do you get off work?”

I glanced at my preoccupied colleagues in the crowded kitchen behind me and then back at him. “I should be done by eleven. Why?”

“There’s a diner down the street. I want you to meet me there.”

My face puckered like he’d squirted lemon juice at me. “What?”

“It’s called Rudy’s,” he said. “I’ll be the guy in the corner booth who looks pleased you’re on time.”

I opened my mouth to speak, but he’d already excused himself without waiting for my response. Dumbstruck, I stared after him, watching his long black coat swing behind him as he wove his way through the busy kitchen and saw himself out.

What the heck was that about?

It sure wasn’t a date because you ask people on a date. You don’t order them.

I mean, that was super high on the list of things you don’t do, right? Up near the top next to you don’t meet weird men you don’t know in the middle of the night. I didn’t even know his name, for crying out loud!

But by the time I glanced at the clock, the decision was made.

I was going, and I wouldn’t be late.

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt #1
Oregon is the greenest state I’ve ever seen. Abundant, lush foliage carpets gentle, rolling hills as far as the eye can see. Farmland abuts forested areas.  It’s breathtakingly gorgeous, and I can definitely see how someone could get lost here.  

The green landscape whizzes by and hypnotizes me as my brain begins to wander. I think of my childhood in Pasadena, just off the Caltech campus. We didn’t live in opulence, but we lived comfortably. Jen and I went to the private polytechnic school down the street from our house. It was where a lot of the professors’ kids went.  I don’t know how my mom was able to afford to keep sending us there after Dad left, but we spent all twelve years of our education happily ensconced within its walls.

Caltech was my playground when I was very little. My dad taught aeronautics and applied physics. In the summer, I used to run through campus and meet him in the green space in front of Beckman Laboratories for picnics. I remember lying on a blanket next to him discussing the possibility of him shrinking me some day like in the movie Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.  

He used to look around all shifty-eyed before leaning toward me and whispering, “Can you keep a secret?” Of course, I always said I could. He’d respond, “I’m closing in on the technology and I should be able to do it by the end of the year! What do you think we should do with all the money we’ll make once I sell the patent to my people-shrinking machine?”

Then we’d plot what to do with our newfound riches. I wanted to spend a month at Disneyland before spending another month at Universal Studios in Orlando. Dad wanted to take my mom on a honeymoon, because they’d never gone on a real one. Then we tried to decide which house we’d buy. I had my eye on one we passed during our weekly walks to Huntington Gardens. It was a two-and-a-half story Spanish Colonial Revival with a pool. My dad joked that he wasn’t sure it would be big enough for the four of us, even though it had to be at least five times the size of our bungalow.

Memories burst through my subconscious like a storm-engorged river breaching a failing dam. As soon as one pops into my mind, at least thirty more push their way forward with unstoppable force. I’m sitting on the plaid blanket we always used for our picnics, and my dad says, “Katie, life is never what you perceive it to be.” Then I’m lying in bed and he whispers, “Believe the unbelievable. Things are never what you think they are.” Suddenly, I’m flying through the warm Southern California breeze on my bicycle, and he yells out, “Just because you think these are trees, doesn’t make them trees. Always be open to the truth. Believe in what you can’t see.”

In retrospect, it’s clear he was trying to prepare me for something. At the time I just remember thinking, Silly, Daddy, of course they’re trees. What else would they be? In my child’s eye, everything was exactly as it appeared. My dad was my rock, my mom and sister were ever-present love and comfort, the sky was blue, and life was good. Until it wasn’t.

Synopsis
One fiery-haired, sexy scientist finds her perfect complement in a dark and handsome soccer star. Opposites attract, and they’ve got chemistry that’s explosive—literally.

Physics calls it entropy. Philosophy calls it Murphy’s Law: If something can go wrong, eventually it will. Professionally and personally speaking, Zed’s familiar with the principle. After a decade of trying to alter the atomic makeup of the mafia from its nucleus, now he’s set on leaving The Life and pursuing his heart. Problem is, the sassy, hot-headed spitfire he can’t quit is meddling in his slow burn escape plan, and turning it into full-on combustion.

Not to mention, Nairne’s got a painful history she won’t talk about and more secrets than she has lab instruments—which is really saying something. In an ideal world, the bad boy footballer would follow the brainy beauty overseas and they’d live happily ever after. But Murphy’s Law is proven true, as Zed finds his world imploding and his escape plan foiled. These enemies turned lovers end up discovering how costly it can be to meet the right person at the wrong time.

A present he can’t escape.

A past she can’t forget.

A future they won’t stop fighting for.

They say all’s fair in love…and war.

Book Two in the Tough Love Series—an enemies to lovers, suspenseful romance, full of sexy Italians, feisty heroines, globe-trotting action, and an ending that’ll both satisfy you and leave you ready for more!

Excerpt #2
I sped to practice to burn off the last of the alcohol I’d drowned myself in. Being elected boss was my worst nightmare come true, and had required liquor-induced oblivion. I could hardly think about it without wanting to vomit. I’d done everything right, played my hand perfectly to support Nella as leader, and it had blown up in my face anyway. Electing me boss. It was goddamn unacceptable.

“Muffin!” Lucas shouted. 

I lifted a hand in hello, jogged onto the field, and started my warm-up laps. Lucas was in goal, taking shots from one of the assistant coaches. He dove to the right for a pretty spectacular save, then chucked the ball he’d just caught straight at me as I rounded his net. Almost nailed me in the junk but my quick reflexes saved me.

“Not today, Lucas.” I shook my head and jogged off. Warm-ups were when I settled into mindlessness and tried to zone out of my circular thoughts. While my thoughts were circular at the moment, they were hardly mindless, as I tried to figure out what Nairne was messing in. And how I was going to dig myself out of this fresh level of hell I’d found myself. How I’d make my way to Nairne like the unapologetic lovesick man I’d turned into. 

I doubled back to Nella. She obviously wanted to be boss. She’d been angry last night. She was as power hungry as it got, and it had been her right to step in Antonio’s place. If I could find some way to ensure she was leader, without drawing the capo’s anger in my direction, I might have a chance. But if Nella became boss, much of my work would unravel. My setup benefitted her, but she would never do it my way long term because she was greedy and much less scrupulous than I was. Within the window of time between passing her the power and the feds’ takedown, she couldn’t do too much damage. Still, it was a lot of conditions and a huge amount of risk.

Lucas’ long, sweaty arm hooked around my neck and yanked me against him. “Zeddy, you look awful.”

I ducked out of his forceful chokehold, and was sorely tempted to shove his lanky ass right into the water cooler. I restrained myself, though. His tactics might grate on my last nerve, but he was asking because he actually gave a shit about me.

“I’m tired.” 

He jogged alongside me, eyes on his feet as we took a lap. “Nope. Try again.”

I ran a hand through my hair and exhaled heavily. “My life’s an absolute fucking mess.”

“That’s the spirit.” Lucas glanced at me seriously. “Listen, Zed. I know we don’t talk about it, but I’m not an idiot. I know you’re tangled up in some terrible shit. Is this to do with that?”

“Without getting into specifics, yes, it’s got everything to do with that. I need to get out of it, sooner than I’d planned.”

Lucas turned to face me and jogged backward, keeping pace. “What’s made you move up your timetable?”

I laughed dryly as I did some high knees. “What you predicted last fall. I fell in love.”

Release Date: June 23, 2019
Genre: Adult Contemporary Sports Romance

Synopsis
Slapped with court ordered community service for brawling—again, Miller Cassidy, the Indianapolis Panther’s star player, is forced into laboring under stodgy non-profit supervisor, Kate Gallagher. Her saving grace—she happens to be best friends with Stella, the woman he’s been chasing for years.

Despite the masses falling for his charm, Kate doesn’t care for Miller’s notorious reputation or his flippant behavior. But wanting to impress her strict boss, she agrees to a trade that could give them both a shot at success.

Propelled into an unlikely alliance, Miller finds himself taking a defensive stance when he sees beyond Kate’s hard exterior. And Kate is equally thrown off guard when she discovers there’s more to Miller than games.

But is love worth sacrificing friendship? And can Miller let go of the feelings for Stella he’s held onto for years?

In love and basketball, it’s five fouls and you’re out, and every play counts.

 

 

 

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt #3
“You’re just a regular kamikaze, eh?”

“What?” Wrinkles pinched above Kate’s brow.

“Self-destructive.” Miller’s hands fanned out like an explosion as his mouth added a matching sound effect. “I didn’t peg you for the type, but you’re willing to go down in flames just to prove you’re right, huh?”

His sister, Reagan, was like that. Stubborn to a fault. Never willing to admit she was wrong, even if she was three miles from the truth.

“From what I hear, you’re pretty familiar with fire, too,” Kate replied.

“I suppose.” Miller ran his right hand through his thick hair.

He was aware that most people were familiar with his reputation, but Miller didn’t like to talk about it. Most of what the general public knew was just perception anyways, not reality.

“You’re welcome for the help, by the way.” Miller wanted to change the focus back to Kate. He got more than enough attention in a day.

“I didn’t need to be rescued,” Kate replied. For a moment she left Miller lagging behind as she made haste for her office.

Calling after her, Miller replied with a knowing chuckle, “The brief interaction I heard says you did.”

“I think we all know your judgement is a little off.”

Kate’s brisk walk picked up speed, but the athlete easily kept pace. He ran sprints for thirty minutes every day for crying out loud. Surely, she didn’t think she’d outrun him? Why was she even trying to do so in the first place? Unless she’d put two and two together and figured out his motive. Even so, Kate couldn’t escape the fate that awaited with a quick canter, so why leave them both winded?

A copy machine zoomed through sheets of paper as they passed by a workroom on the way to Kate’s office. Her face illuminated with the glow of her welcome screen as she slipped into her high back desk chair.

“You know where the call center is.” Kate motioned for the door. “I’ll find you later to discuss details for next week.”

Surely, she didn’t think she was getting off the hook that easily?

“I do.” The player plopped down in the plastic visitor chair settled in front of Kate’s modern, metal desk. Matching silver frames hosted candid pictures of friends, including Stella, and a portrait of a mother and two children. It was interesting, Miller thought, to see Kate smiling in the photographs because she rarely did so in person. At least, she hadn’t in the short bit of time he’d known her.

“You’re free to go now. I mean, you couldn’t wait to start calling, right?” Sarcasm rolled from Kate’s tongue. “That’s what you told Marlene.”

“Apparently lying to her is on trend.” Miller’s arms folded across his chest. “Because it seems you did the same thing yesterday.”

Kate’s cheeks flushed a light shade of pink. “I didn’t have any choice. You heard how she harps on me. I couldn’t tell her that you left just because you felt like it. I’d be one check mark closer to fired.”

“I told you that I’ll gladly help you erase some of those marks,” Miller said. “Or I suppose I could see if she can add a few more. I am pretty good at being bad.”

Kate’s chair squeaked as she leaned forward. “You wouldn’t.”

“You know enough about my reputation to know I would,” Miller said, a wry grin plastered upon his face. “But I won’t have to if you agree to help me win Stella back.”

“I said no.” Kate’s stern eyes met the athlete’s.

“Yes, but that was before,” Miller said. “Before you saw how easily Marlene would believe me over you. Before you realized just how quickly you could lose.”

Kate’s anxious foot flipped her heel off and on.

“You can’t hold me to an impossible task,” Kate replied. “Stella may not want to be won, and then what? You trash my career just because she decides she’s better than you? That’s not fair.”

“I suppose I can’t hold her final decision against you. But if I sense you’re slacking off instead of trying, well—” Miller’s arms took weight as he leaned forward in the seat and propped his upper body across the front of Kate’s desk. “All’s fair.”

They’re both back in Red River for good, and the chemistry is stronger than ever. But will her secret tear them apart all over again?

Dylan McCoy is restless to take over Red River’s favorite watering hole—Cotton Eyed Joe’s—when his Uncle Joe retires. First, he’s got to prove he has what it takes to carry on Joe’s legacy.

Unfortunately, the renovations aren’t going as planned and draw fire from the saloon next door. When she comes face to face with her ex, Dylan McCoy, sparks fly. Can they mend the damage done because of how they parted ways? Or will her secret cause them both to get burned again?

Excerpt #2
“I like the look of this place. It’s very swanky.” The modern design of chrome, white, and black gave it a chic look. “Doesn’t really fit Red River’s norm, but it seems to work.”

“Kind of like your long hair. If you want the norm, you’ll have to see if Bill’s Barbershop has any openings.” Hailey had him lean back, and she turned on the water. It gurgled to life. She stood over him, holding the sprayer in one hand and testing the water temperature with the other. “The earrings aren’t the standard look around here either.” She finally looked him in the eye. “I only remember one earring when we…” She hesitated. “Before you left for L.A.”

“The other earring was an addition once I moved to the West Coast. It was a thing there.”

She stayed rooted in place and didn’t move again.

“What?” He scrunched his brows.

“I saw all the things happening for you as a new face in the music world. The tabloids went crazy over every move you made.” She focused on his hair, went to touch it, then froze. Her fingers lingered a fraction above his head.

“You read about me?” He couldn’t help it. He really couldn’t. He had to ask. Had to know if she’d been thinking about him.

“No.” Her gaze snapped to his.

“Then why is your ringtone one of my old songs?”

She blanched. “That’s one of your songs? I had no idea.”

Bullshit, but whatever.

“I saw the magazine covers while I was standing in the checkout line at the grocery store,” she said.

“So, you read what those covers said about me?” Now he was just teasing her for fun. How could he not? Pink tinged her cheeks, and he wanted to brush his fingers across them to feel the warmth.

“They were a little hard to miss. Every rag in the country put you on the cover for a while.”

“Don’t believe everything you read.” The stupid shit that had been printed about him when he was still with the band, then after he left L.A. and headed back to Red River was so far from the truth that it had been too ridiculous to deserve a response. Which was exactly what he’d told any of the locals who’d been bold enough to ask.

“Interesting that I never heard much about you. You’re one of the few people no one knew much about in this town.” He studied her expression.

Something flashed in her eyes. She didn’t offer any information, so he left it alone.

She pulled her top lip between white teeth. Still hadn’t started washing his hair.

He let one side of his mouth quirk up into a sly smile. “It’s okay to touch it.”

Her pretty eyes turned to saucers. “Wh…what?”

“My hair. You look almost afraid to touch it, but it’ll be a little hard for you to cut it if you don’t.”

The muscles in her slender throat moved as she swallowed. “Oh. Right.” Finally, she dove in, running fingers through his hair and wetting it with the sprayer.

It felt spectacular. Stupendous. Shockingly sensual.

Author Interview:
Q: Are there any secrets from the book, you can share with your readers?

A: I don’t want to ruin it for anyone, but I will suggest to pay attention to Ansel in this one.

Q: Can you share a snippet that isn’t in the blurb or excerpt?

A: “Are you always like this?”

Yon placed her on the bed, took a pillow, and handed it to her. “Keep the foot elevated. And, no, I’m not always like this.”

She held up her hand, hoping he wouldn’t leave her yet. She wanted to understand him better. “And when you say, ‘not always like this,’ do you mean you don’t knock people unconscious a lot?”

His head tilted slightly. “No, I meant I don’t usually come down to the planets I hate just to find a specific female and bring her back safely.”

It took a half-second longer than it should have for her to process that. “You came for me?”

“You shouldn’t have been down here in the first place.”

Yelena didn’t know what to say to that.

“Good thing you didn’t like Lotus Adaamas, because it was the last time you’re going to see it.” Yon was still holding out the pillow. His tone didn’t sound angry, more matter-of-fact. 

She took the pillow and said, “Is it because of my skin? Or because of something else?”

“All of that and more.”

“What else could there be?”

“I will write you a list.”

Q: Does one of the main characters hold a special place in your heart? If so, why?

A: I’ve meet males like the hero before and I’ve always wanted to see him with a happily ever after, but more often than not, he can’t soften enough to be in a relationship.

Q: What do you hope your readers take away from this book?

A: I hope they are interested in the next book, to be honest.

Q: Can you give us some insight into what makes the hero tick?

A: He’s got a chip on his shoulder a thousand miles high, brought on by upbringing

Q: What were the key challenges you faced when writing this book?

A: It was hard to soften the hero enough to make him a character my readers would enjoy instead of hate. I re-wrote this book three times just to get the romance right.

Q: What was the highlight of writing this book?

A: My favorite part of writing is sending 2-3 chapters to my beta reader and getting her thoughts via marco-polo app.

Excerpt #3
I slam the door and am surprised to see Brooks when I turn around. I guess the rain kept him from working today. I try to make a quick break for my room, but my name on his lips stops me.

“Raelynn, please.”

I don’t know if the pleading in his voice triggers a flashback of Logan, him pleading whenever I caught him cheating, or if I have so much pent up anger over the last few days, I am ready to let it out. “What?” I practically hiss.

He sighs heavily. “I am sorry about the other night.”

I snort. “Sorry? For what kissing me? Or sorry that I woke up hearing you have sex?”

He takes a step closer to me as I take a step back. “I am sorry that I was an asshole and invited that girl over after I kissed you.”

I laugh loudly. “Yeah, I am sure you are really sorry about that.”

“I am. I was stupid. I was acting out. I was pissed you rejected me.”

I have nothing to say to him, so I turn to leave the room. He grabs my arm to stop me. “What do you want me to say?”

I look down at his grip on my forearm and glance back up at him, anger piercing my eyes. “Don’t fucking touch me.”

He looks down at his hand on my arm and something must click in his mind because he practically jumps away from me. “I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have done that. I just don’t know how to get across to you.”

“Let me fill you in on a small detail, Brooks. Fucking some bitch isn’t the best way to get across to me.” I walk closer to him and push his chest. “Telling me you are sorry when I can see in your eyes that you truly aren’t is not a way to get across to me. Grabbing my arm to talk to me is not a way to get across to me.”

I push him again, my body raging. I feel my heartbeat speeding up as my inhibitions drop.

“I am sorry, Blue. Really. I am an idiot. I don’t take rejection well.” He doesn’t fight back against my pushing which pisses me off even more.

“Don’t fucking call me Blue,” I say as I push him closer to the wall. I can feel his heartbeat speeding up under my palms. I can see the way his eyes keep glancing to my lips the angrier I get. My own storm brewing inside of me.

“I didn’t fuck her.”

I roll my eyes. “Really so the ‘harder baby’ and the banging wasn’t fucking?”

“Not in the biblical sense. I couldn’t stop thinking about you, so I kicked her out.”

I push him again. “That’s the biggest load of horseshit.”

“It’s true.”

I contemplate what he’s saying. Honesty in his eyes. I am surprised to find myself believing him.

I go to push him again, but he grabs my wrists as they lay on his chest. “Don’t look at me like that,” he says.

“Like what?” I ask as I too can’t help but glance at his lips.

“Like you want to fucking kiss me.”

“I don’t want to kiss you.” I push against his chest again until he backs into the living room wall.

“Your body sure seems like it.”

“Fuck you,” I spit. His eyes pierce into me just as I grab his neck and pull his lips to mine.

Excerpt #2
Selyah banged his fist against the armrest, raising the volume of his voice. “Your ‘prize’ is a twenty-one-year-old fully grown adult who sits in his room all day jerking off, lifting weights, and making his guitar shriek at five in the afternoon.”

The young men responded with blank, slightly frightened stares.

“Starabey!” Selyah yelled, making even the stuffed animal heads on the walls shake.

In a few moments, through the beastly wooden door came in a broad-shouldered, athletically built young man with gray skin. His hair was long, abundant, and frizzy—an electric-blue color so bright it almost looked like a cheap wig. He stared at Domino and his posse with drowsy amber eyes and was adorned with only a pair of thick harem pants.

“Say hello to our guests, Bey,” ordered Selyah.

“I…thought you said I don’t have to do it if I don’t make eye contact,” he replied with an airheaded, puzzled gaze.

Selyah smirked. “You’re moving out. These boys have come to take you with them.”

“Okay, but…uh…” mumbled Starabey, his eyes darting around the room from discomfort. He let out a light sigh and mustered up the courage to look into Selyah’s eyes. “I’m…uh…not one hundred percent sure how sex dungeons work…”

“Ugh!” Domino groaned at the top of his lungs, leaning his head back and pulling down the skin on his cheeks. “We’re just poor!”

“Domino, we’re strippers,” Ken argued, rubbing the side of his head with his fingertips. “We wear even less at work. Why does this bother you so much?”

However, Domino refused to grace him with a reply.

“Jai morghjati noshjiti crnghjo odhjelo jer jai bihti rujghno,” said Sublivion.

Starabey turned to Domino and the rest, his eyebrows cocked up in awe and confusion. “Um…”

“He can understand Kitarian, but he can’t really speak it,” Bowie elaborated.

“Yeah—we mostly just try to guess what he’s saying or ask him to pantomime,” said Domino.

“Jai moghjiti naughjiti…gosphjodar,” Sublivion added, turning to Domino as he spoke.

Starabey stared at the young men and the demon, his expression showing nothing but fear and uncertainty.

“By the way, I’m Domino,” said the blond with a snobbish grin and pushed his ponytail over his shoulder and onto his chest. “Heir to the Enviedhieri family estate, star performer at Cazzo Grande, Buonarroti High School honors graduate, master of the fourth elemental horseman.”

“Ken.” He bowed his ink-haired head, still keeping on a cynical frown. “Seer of bullshit. Prophet of imbecile stunt outcomes.”

The ginger smiled and waved. “I’m Bowie.”

“Oh, yeah, and that’s my elemental horseman,” Domino explained, “Sublivion.”

The demon nodded.

Synopsis
In the third novel in the LONG LIVE DEAD RECKLESS series, Talor must find a way to remember what everyone wants her to forget…or lose herself forever.

As a Grigori Princess, Talor has everything most women could ever want: love, eternal beauty, wealth, and power. Supernatural servants bend to her every will and no material desire is denied her, but that rose-colored reality begins to crack when she hears a mysterious voice speaking through music.

After a violent encounter with a sinister figure in the countryside, her husband Rami turns cold and possessive, blaming her for the growing storm between the Grigori and the Dissent. Confused and heartbroken, Talor soon becomes less like a princess and more like a prisoner in her own home.

But as the list of enemies seeking to abduct her from the Valley grows, she begins to wonder what it is they know that she doesn’t. When she is faced with an unthinkable choice, she must be braver than she ever thought possible if she is to discover the shocking truth that will change everything.

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt
After a long moment gazing up at the stars together, I gave a wistful sigh.

“I’ve decided on a name for our son, Rami.”

“I am ready to hear it.”

I closed my eyes and took a deep breath before smiling. It was the perfect name. It just felt right.

“Sage.”

Rami went rigid behind me. It wasn’t the reaction I had expected at all, so I opened my eyes to look back at him. His mouth dropped open a little as he eased away from me, moving to the other side of the boat like he wanted to jump in the water just to get away. I could see the tension rising in his face, but I couldn’t figure out why.

He muttered Yahweh-Elata under his breath. He had scrambled across the boat to get away from me and now he wasn’t even going to speak in a language I could understand?

“Rami,” I said, trying to bring him back to me, to us.

As I watched him wrestle with something in explosive silence, I rewound the moment in my mind to be sure I hadn’t said something other than what I did. But no – I’d only said the name I liked, the name that felt right to give my firstborn son.

Sage was a good name. Sure, it was technically an herb, but I liked it. I couldn’t understand why he would have such a strong reaction. Rami brushed his dark hair across his forehead and dragged his hand across his face, heaving a sigh. His eyes were burning, glancing wildly as they looked about.

“Rami, sweetheart, what’s wrong? Are you all right?”

He blinked at my voice, seeming to remember me all of a sudden as he came out of his deep thoughts. His elbows dropped onto his knees then, his hands limp. His brow furrowed as he set a burning stare my way.

“Why that name?” he asked.

It was supposed to be a question but it sounded more like an accusation. I shook my head as I grabbed onto the side of the boat for support.

“I…I honestly don’t know. I just thought of it. Isn’t that how it works? Is it – do you not like it? I can come up with another, Rami. Please don’t be upset about a name.”

The way he studied my face for a long moment gave me a sickening feeling that I’d done something horrible without knowing it.

“A name,” he whispered.

He took his insignia necklace into his palm and it glowed enough to cast light. It meant he was calling one of his sons from afar, but I didn’t dare ask why. Without a word, he extended his arm towards the shore and the boat lurched for the dock. A dozen Loyalists were already on one knee there, waiting. Levi was among them. Rami leapt out of the boat and offered a hand to me. I took it and stumbled out, not nearly as graceful as he had been.

Sensing my nerves, he clutched my hand tight into the crook of his elbow and strode a good ten feet away from the Loyalists before stopping.

“Please tell me what’s happening,” I said, touching his chest.

His expression was wary as he took my face in his hands and kissed me long on the lips. I wished he would just keep kissing me and let me choose a different name, but instead he took one more forlorn look before abruptly leaving with most of them. I thought Levi would stay, but he wasn’t one of the two who did.

I stood on the riverbank dumbfounded in the light of a thousand stars, wondering why Rami never answered me. Every star was an eye bearing down, and they all seemed to be asking the same thing: what was wrong with the name Sage?

Synopsis
Introducing an exciting new series filled with suspense, sacrifice, family, and most of all, the healing power of love. Welcome to the Family…

One. Defining. Moment.

Kasey Moore is happy to be home. Moving to New Hope as a teenager hadn’t been easy, but once she settled in, she couldn’t imagine herself living anywhere else. After four years in College, she’s finally back to living in the town she loves and working her dream job as a teacher at the Elementary School.

For Kasey, her life couldn’t be more perfect.

Until a school assembly, an arrogant man, and a hot encounter in a closet shakes up everything Kasey thinks she wants.

Ten years as a Navy SEAL and Jackson Dimarco is coming home.

Ten years of rigid schedules, almost unreachable expectations, and being a part of something bigger than himself has changed him. Coming home, trying to find himself, the last thing Jax wants to do is talk to an auditorium full of school kids about his time in the military, but when his brother signs him up that’s exactly what he ends up doing.

And he meets someone who challenges him in a way nobody has in a very long time. He meets someone who inspires him to become more than who he’s settled for. He meets someone who makes him feel alive again.

It’s just a shame she doesn’t feel the same way.

But Jackson Dimarco has always loved a challenge and Kasey Moore is the biggest incentive he’s ever had to win.

This is a novella in The Dimarco Series. Can be read as a standalone and at any point in the series. However, if new to the series, I’d recommend reading this novella before the first book in the series, Lucy.
