Blurb : What happens when secrets aren’t enough to protect you?I moved to Texas for a fresh start, at least that’s what I tell people. No one gets the whole truth. Hell, I haven’t let anyone close enough to even ask.

 

Until him.

 

Jax is a born heart-breaker with a killer smile. When I get injured, I try to keep him at crutch’s length, but he’s always there.

And I don’t want to owe anyone, especially Jax.

 

Besides, I’m not the only one hiding something from my past. If Jax isn’t who he says he is, it’ll endanger more than my heart. I learned long ago not to trust anyone, and he’s no exception. Not that it matters…Jax would never understand the SECRETS I KEEP.

Blurb : I needed this job. Being a secretary wasn’t exactly my first choice of professions, but when I got the call from Prince and Pots that a position had opened up, I jumped on it. Little did I know that I’d be working for Xander Prince, a tyrant by any standard. I could handle his glares and cold words. I could handle the way he looked down his perfect nose at me every time I walked into his office. What I couldn’t handle? When he locked me in the file room with him, told me he owned me, and gave me more pleasure than I’d ever experienced. He let the beast out, and instead of fear, I felt free. But how would he react when he found out who I really was?

 

Author’s Note: This is an erotic romance with BDSM, dubious consent, and explicit sex. It can be read in one sitting, and is deliciously filthy. #smuthappens

Blurb :  A taste of poison is deadly. A taste of me is a whole lot worse. She found me on the side of the road. I would’ve bled to death if it wasn’t for her. The bastards who tried to kill me had come real damn close. But she picked me up, carried me home, nursed me back to health. Big mistake. How could she miss it? How didn’t she see? I’m a walking virus, a natural disaster. Death and violence follow me like a second shadow. The right thing to do would have been to leave me where I was. To let me die a dog’s death — hell, I probably deserved it. She didn’t, though, and it’s too late for regret. Already, my past has come roaring back with a vengeance. We don’t have much time left. I should send her packing. Run, silly girl! Get out while you still can. My enemies are coming… But something deep inside won’t let me. I had a taste of Sophia, and now, I can’t get enough. I want to claim her, ravage her until her cries shatter windowpanes. And I won’t take no for an answer. I’m here, baby. I’m never leaving again. If you didn’t want me — well, too bad. You should have left me for dead.

I don’t collect guys like that (don’t ask what kind of guys I do collect), but when you spot a blonde, tanned, sculpted man with a gorgeous smile and his thumb poking up and practically begging you to stop – you stop.And I definitely never thought I’d be staring into the bright blue eyes of Trevor Connor, the lead singer for Random Acts of Crazy, an indie rock star I followed like the slobbering fileshare fangirl I am. How he came to be nude and lost six hundred miles from home is quite the tale, but how we fell in love is even more unreal.Because someone like Trevor Connor, headed to Harvard Law next year, isn’t supposed to want someone like me, a rural Ohio chick majoring in Boredom at Convenience Store University who is all curves and frizzy blonde hair and manners so unpolished they have sharp edges that make you bleed.But he did.When his best friend, Joe Ross, the bass player for Random Acts of Crazy and a man who makes Calvin Klein models look like Shrek, drove eleven hours through the night to rescue him, though, it got real complicated. It’s one thing to like two different guys and be torn.What do you do, though, when maybe – just maybe – you don’t have to choose?As my Aunt Josie says sometimes, “It’s always complicated.”

 

* * * * * * Random Acts of Crazy is a standalone, full-length novel (300+ pages, 85,000 words) featuring Darla Jo(sephine) Jennings, the 22-year-old niece of Josie Mendham from the Her Two Billionaires series.

Blurb : From the New York Times bestselling authors of Stuck-Up Suit and Cocky Bastard, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

Money or love?

 

Which would you choose? You probably just answered the question in your head thinking it’s an easy decision.For me, it’s not. Did I mention it’s a lot of money? A hell of a lot.I needed to go far away to think it through.

 

As I embarked on an impulsive trip, I hit a detour when I met sexy Carter in the airport lounge. We struck up a heated conversation.

Then, he left.

I thought I’d never see him again.

But fate had other plans.Surprise! He was the pilot of my flight.

 

The bigger surprise was the adventure that followed after the plane landed.Carter was dangerous and always on the move.Even though our connection was magnetic, I knew it was only temporary.

 

He would give me tickets, and I would follow him around the world to exotic places.A bevy of flight attendant exes and rumors about Carter’s reputation were never far behind.I didn’t know what to believe.But I was addicted.

 

Nothing else mattered anymore. And I was going to get hurt. Because a part of me wanted to be the one to finally ground the playboy pilot.At the very least, he was taking me on a thrilling ride.

 

All good things must come to an end, right?

 

Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.
