I was given an ARC of this book, and I absolutely loved it. I totally love writing with this lady. She is truly talented.

Witness Protection-3D-eReader

One man has vowed to protect her. 
The other won’t stop until she’s dead.

Hawk
She’s been my full-time charge since she turned eighteen. Her father expects me to protect her and keep my hands to myself. I play my role until the day everything changes. Now I have to balance my loyalty to a dead empire and my own twisted desires.

Cayden
Vasily Morenov killed everyone I cared about. All I want is revenge. I assassinated him with a single bullet, but it didn’t end there. I won’t have my peace until that motherfucker is wiped from history, and that includes his only heir.

Sophia
My father owned the city. All I can remember now is blood. Hawk keeps me locked away for my own good. There’s a bounty on my head and an assassin determined to make me disappear. I only remember his hard blue eyes, but I know he’s coming for me. Even Hawk can’t hide me forever.

Excerpt:

“As of right now, we’re a nice happy couple. No making eye contact with anyone. We just need to make it to my car in the sublevel. Understand?”

“And if I break the rules?”

He glared at her, the devil in his blue eyes. “Do you really want to test me?”

She kept quiet.

As soon as they were in the hall, she could taste freedom. Surely, he wouldn’t make a scene if she made a break for it in the busy lobby. He held her hand, a little too tightly, as they walked to the elevator.

This time she paid attention.

They were on the ninth floor.

The elevator opened with a chime and one businessman stood in the corner. Cayden squeezed her hand harder, making her cringe, and tugged her close to his side. She hadn’t realized how tall he was, so close in size to Hawk. If only Hawk was there now, her rock, he’d kill Cayden without a second thought and keep her safe.

She was tempted to meet eyes with the man from one of the mirrored panels. Would she be able to signal him? Would he even be able to protect her from a trained hitman? She’d probably just get him killed.

The elevator stopped on the third floor, and a tall woman with a red suitcase on wheels joined them. The clickety-clack of her luggage came to a rest as she settled near the far panel, facing them. Sophia was sure the woman could read her mind, hear her screaming for help even though her lips hadn’t moved. If only she could make eye contact…

Cayden must have sensed her thoughts, or felt the growing tension, because he reached around and grabbed her ass, pulling her tight to his body. With his free hand, he cupped the back of her head and kissed her hard on the mouth. He had the faint taste of cigarettes and mint gum, but it was the brutal way he possessed her mouth that left her spineless in his arms.

The elevator kept dinging, but she didn’t care. Her eyes were closed, her mind a million miles away. When he finally pulled away from her, she was speechless and stunned. She turned around—the elevator was empty, and they were on the parking level.

There would be no chance to make a scene in the lobby.

He grabbed her hand. “Come on, let’s go. Almost there now.”

She touched her lips as they rushed through the lonely parking level. How could he not be affected by that kiss? What the hell was happening?

Her father had kept her locked up like Rapunzel in a tower, so she had no experience with men, even at twenty-four. She wasn’t good at reading people and had no street smarts or social skills. Her expertise was in university texts, painting, and the ins and outs of life in a fucked-up crime family. She was numb to killing, death, and weapons, but a simple kiss had managed to unravel her.

It was only her second kiss.

She licked her lips, trying to compare the gentle kiss from Hawk and the demanding one from Cayden. They were both perfect, leaving her raw and aching for more.

He pushed his fob, and a car dinged, the lights flashing briefly. Cayden opened the passenger door, moved some things off the seat, then motioned for her to sit. Were those bloodstains? He rummaged in the trunk before sitting in the driver’s seat.

“Where we going?” she asked.

Cayden didn’t answer her.

He started the engine and reversed out of the parking spot, paid at the exit, and then they were gone. Driving farther and farther away from the hotel, and Hawk, and everything she knew.

As Look Would Have It Cover Reveal

It’s Cover Reveal day. 

Jenika Snow and I have some sexy hotness heading your way on March 18th! 

As look would have it.When Felicity is nearly run over, it’s Hawk that’s there to catch her before she falls…literally.

He’s strong, handsome, and smart, and gives back to the community. Hawk’s everything a woman would want, but he’s also her competition.

They come from two rivaling companies so that should mean there’s no way they can be together. But it seemed fate had other plans.

Because as luck would have it, once Hawk has her, he’s not letting her go.

*official blurb to come.

Facebook Disabled My Account

Hi Everyone,

So, I’ve let Jenika and Stacey know that my account has been disabled, and I figured to let others know that maybe doesn’t have Facebook or if you do and can no longer get into my group, I’ll drop a quick post here.

Someone reported my account as trying to be someone else (I was sleeping), during that process, my account was disabled.

Until further notice, I will have to give all updates here until I can get my account back.

Thank you.

There story continues ….

Ten years ago, Harper ran so the men she cared about could live. There’s no chance of her ever going back to Stonewall—or of seeing Draven and her men again. They are gone, moved on, and she must do the same.
 
But they’ve not forgotten her betrayal. When Axel finds her, he’s determined to bring her back. When she left, she’d been their queen, the one to bind them together. Now, she is going to be torn apart, broken, and possibly killed.
 
One look in Draven’s eyes and she knows her future is no longer certain. She was born in Stonewall and will die there, at his hands. Before he strikes the killing blow, will she be able to convince him she didn’t want to leave?
 
Draven’s determined to rid his mind of this woman. She betrayed him, and the only way to deal with a traitor is to make an example of them. He will break her and make her regret every single minute she ran from him.
 
No one runs from him.
 
He owns her, and now it’s time for her to pay, once and for all.

New Release: The Initiation (Darkness Within Duet, 1)

The Initiation2

Darkness Within Duet, 1

Harper Miller doesn’t want to handle what has happened to her over the past year. Her father left, her mother killed herself, and she still has to be the good girl, the one that doesn’t make waves, who is always nice. But one day, something changes.

No, it’s not something. It’s them.

Draven, Axel, Jett, and Buck. All of them are dangerous, scary, and most people avoid them at all costs. She knows they’re bad news, but Draven’s not willing to take no for an answer, not from her.

For Draven, he and his friends had this idea of finding the one girl that would complete their circle. One girl for all of them. Harper is that one girl, but first she has to go through their initiation to become one of them, to be able to bear their names, and to stand proudly.

All they ask is she remain loyal to them and them alone. No squealing to the cops. No backing down. And above all else, no running away.

All she has to do is give herself, mind, heart, and body. She can keep her soul. It’s dark anyway, just like theirs.

Be Warned: public exhibition

 

Excerpt:

He locked his car and headed inside to see what was taking her so long.

She wasn’t at her locker, and as he stood out of line of sight, he watched as detention came to an end. A couple of guys headed out, and Harper was the last one to leave, apart from the teacher.

She looked … lost.

He watched her, curious as to what she was doing. What was going on in that head of hers? She looked at the time, and instead of going straight to the parking lot, she didn’t. She went into the bathroom.

His curiosity was always a problem. He followed her inside.

The jacket he’d taken from her was inside his car.

Why was he testing her, pushing her?

Being a bully hadn’t been part of his MO. He never taunted anyone. The guys who got in his way, he made sure to take care of, and the chicks always knew only his dick was on offer, nothing else. He still didn’t understand why he was sticking around with Harper. She was nothing special. They’d been going to the same school since nursery school.

When it came to her, he wanted to push her, to see how far the good girl went.

Stepping into the girl’s bathroom, he saw her at the sink.

She turned her head, and the blue fire in her eyes should have struck him dead and cold.

“What are you doing here?”

He leaned against the wall, folding his hands over his chest. “I’m curious how detention was.”

“Wow, really? Have you ever been to detention?”

“No.”

“I bet you got a slip though, right? The teachers don’t give a shit what you do. You’ve got the right last name. The kind of name that even teachers don’t like to touch.”

He smirked. “You jealous of my last name, Miller?”

“Leave me alone.”

“Is that an order?”

“It’s a request.”

“I don’t take orders.”

“What do you want?” she asked.

“To see … something.”

“So I’m the target this year for your amusement, is that it?”

“You clench your hands often?” he asked, looking at her tight fists.

“You’re so weird.”

She went to pass him, but he put his hand out, stopping her from going.

“Seriously? What?” She folded her arms over her chest.

The glare she gave him turned him on. He’d never seen her look so ferocious. He blocked her exit, watching her.

“I want my stuff back.”

He smirked.

“Why did you take it, huh? Did it get you off to go inside a locker that’s not yours? You know what? I don’t care.”

She went to pass again, only this time, he caught her shoulders, pressing her up against the wall. At first, she struggled against him. He watched the fight in her gaze, how she tried to overpower him, but he wouldn’t let her go.

The truth was, he didn’t have a fucking clue what he was doing or even why. Only that he had to.

“Let me go.” She went to strike him, and he caught both of her hands, pressing them above her head.

She growled the moment he did it.

Still, he didn’t speak even as she fought him, her body arching against him. The thrust of her tits pressed on her shirt.

He was used to women being all over him, used to the female sex wanting him and willing to do whatever he said.

This, with Harper, was new.

He didn’t mind it. In fact, he found it rather refreshing. She wouldn’t give in, wouldn’t allow him to have what he wanted.

Staring into her sweet blue eyes, he remembered them the first day of kindergarten. How scared she’d looked as she watched the other kids. Like him, she observed. She waited to see what was coming her way.

Where he had three friends, she had none. No one wanted to be her friend.

He’d watched her over the years. Seen her grow up, again, always alone, never one to join the crowds.

Always good.

He wanted to break that goodness, to shatter the innocence within her.

He’d never been allowed to be free, to be good, to be strong.

She was everything he’d been ordered to avoid.

Now, though, after her mother ended her tragic life, there was a darkness swirling within Harper. Shadows clouded her once clear gaze.

“Don’t you have some teenager to screw?” she asked, fighting him.

“You want to take the job?” He finally spoke, and seeing that spark of anger flash within her gaze turned him on.

“Fuck you, Draven. Let me go.”

“I’ll let you go when I’m good and ready.” He kept her hands locked above her head. He wondered what she’d do if he caressed down her body, touching her tits before cupping her between her thighs. She’d probably come.

So much repressed rage.

He could tutor that, help it come out.

Leaning forward, he stroked his cheek against hers, feeling how soft her flesh was. “We’re going to have a lot of fun together, you and I.”

New Release: Sugar is Sweet (co-written with Jenika Snow)

Sugar is sweet

From the moment Millie walked into his restaurant looking for a job, Lucas wanted her. But being with her would cause problems. He was her boss and it was against the rules … his rules. Not to mention, as a single father, he couldn’t just let any woman near his son.

But Millie was different. He knew she was special from the moment he looked at her.

No matter what he planned, Lucas knew he had to have her and he was willing to do whatever it took to claim her as his.

Wanting her boss came with plenty of complications, mainly that Millie knew there was no reason for a man like Lucas to want someone like her.

Gorgeous, intelligent and successful, he wouldn’t be interested in a Plain Jane girl like her.

But when he showed interest, Millie didn’t try to fight the chemistry they had. As Valentine’s Day approached and the restaurant was in full swing with everyone wanting to express their love, Lucas and Millie’s relationship bloomed.

But what would happen if Lucas wanted to take it to the next level?

Could Millie throw caution to the wind and give herself fully to Lucas in the name of love?
