He feels his life is finally on track until he returns home to discover that his sixteen-year-old sister is missing. With his younger brother in jail and his older brother living a life of crime, it’s up to Dillon to find Grace. After four years of searching, a phone call from a morgue gives him a lead that he can’t pass up. Enlisting the help of a cutthroat reporter may be his only hope.

Crime reporter Maggie Marx has just the right mix of grit and sex appeal to get anything she wants, even the darkest stories on the street. Growing up in a gang, she had her fair share of setbacks and obstacles. When Dillon Hart seeks her help, she’s more than ready to take down the street’s biggest enemy. Her actions could help her exact revenge or land her in the belly of the beast.

As Dillon and Maggie team up to search for Dillon’s sister, they aren’t prepared to find what lies ahead. One family is torn apart. Another is brought together. Hearts are shredded, secrets are uncovered, and love takes on a whole new meaning.

One minute she had it all, the next, she was left stranded in a shady game she didn’t know she played. Her perfect gentleman — wasn’t so perfect after all. He held a profound secret. A secret that could destroy not just her future, but an entire real estate empire he is set to inherit.

Yet, such a treacherous revelation couldn’t sway Willow away from Harry, she was in deep, so deep it suffocated her, destroyed her friendships, credibility, honor and dignity. Then, she met the mining magnate Bruno Calderon, a powerful and charismatic man, who gave her an offer she couldn’t refuse, a way out, a chance to salvage her damaged reputation and start anew, a thorn in Harry’s flesh.

Will her past restrict her from her much deserved happy ending?

*Tavin*
Ever since Toben told me to make my first birthday wish, I always wish for the same thing: for us to run away to a beautiful place where they won’t ever find us or hurt us again. He’s the only person in the world who loves me. I love him too. He’s says we’re the same, that we’re halfpeople. He tries to protect me from the monster. The monster does’t love us, but Toben says we don’t need him to. Toben is all I need. He’s the reason I keep waking up every morning, in this scary life, praying for the day my eyes stay closed.

*Toben*
Tavin is the most precious thing in my life. She gives me a purpose. I love her more than the air in my lungs, and it’s because of her that I’m able to hang on to some semblance of who I once was. His sinister cruelty has taken its toll, causing something to change inside of me. She can’t ever know the things I’ve done. The things he’s made me do, and the things I’ve done because of my own darkening heart. She wouldn’t understand that I did those things for her. Everything breath I take, every soul I crush is for her. It’s all for her.

Not my wildest dreams or darkest nightmares could have prepared me for the intricacy that is Tavin Winters.

Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo

Alexander

Being with Tavin is like eating those candies that start out sweet and then turn so sour, your eyes water. When she’s happy, her radiance is stunning, but her glow is dimmed by her dark secrets. I knew from the moment I laid eyes on her, sucking on that lollipop, that there was something unique about her. I was right in more ways than one, and while I don’t know the extent of suffering that her life entails, I’ll do whatever I need to, to convince her she can trust me. I just need to hang on to her long enough to do that.
Tavin

When he wraps his arms around me, and his warmth makes me feel safe, it’s easy to pretend that this is real. I knew going out with him was a bad idea, I just never imagined it would go this far. It was only supposed to be one night. One night to feel like a normal girl. I didn’t plan for this and now, every day that passes puts us deeper in danger. All I can do is make the most of every moment with him, so when the time comes for this to end, then at least we’ll be left with beautiful memories.

Trigger Warning: This novel contains drug use, explicit sexual content, violence, and sensitive subject matter which may be triggering for some readers.

HOT NEW RELEASE !! GYSPY’S LADY!!

Title: Gypsy’s Lady


Series: Rebel Wayfarers MC, #11.5

Author: MariaLisa deMora

Genre: MC Romance

Release Date: June 11, 2018

#BringingHisBabyHome

 

 

Gypsy had
lost faith in his fellow man and was drifting through life when he found the

Rebel Wayfarers MC. Having forever been a stranger to love, he was stunned when
it beckoned to him from a darkened room in faraway Oz. The route to hold the
woman of his dreams might be turbulent, but now that he’s found her, he’s
determined to keep her…no matter the cost.

Full description:

Douglas Tatum was a decorated police officer and considered himself a community
servant loyal to the shield … back before he lost the faith. Betrayed by a man
he considered a brother, he cut all ties with his past existence, drifting
until he found a home with the Rebel Wayfarers MC, and their president, Mason.
With renewed purpose, Gypsy, as he’s now known, threw himself into building a
new life, earning his way into a trusted position in the club.

Dispatched overseas to help fulfill a club debt, Gypsy didn’t expect to find
his destiny under an unfamiliar canopy of stars. It took just a single
trembling glance for the dark-haired, blue-eyed beauty to own his heart.

Kelsey had spent months in captivity, serving men’s sadistic whims. Endless
days of living moment to moment, in darkness and pain, she had given up hope of
escape until Gypsy walked through the door. With one word from him, her heart
settled in her chest, and she knew she was safe. From that moment he had taken
control, dispatching her enemies and her nightmares, giving her a chance to be
fearless for the first time she could remember.

Now fate has thrown them another curve, and they’ll have to partner with an
unlikely crew to help save another girl. In the series timeline, this story
sits alongside ‘Fury’ (book #11).

Story in the Rebel Wayfarers MC book series, timeline matches book #11, Fury.
Gypsy’s Lady #11.5.

*Please note this book is part of the Rebel Wayfarers MC book series, featuring
characters from additional books in the series. If the books are read out of
order, you’ll twig to spoilers for the other books, so going back to read the
skipped titles won’t have the same angsty reveals. I strongly recommend you
read them in order. Available now: Mica (book #1), Slate (book #2), Bear (book
#3), Jase (book #4), Gunny (book #5), Mason (book #6), Hoss (book #7), Duck
(book #8), Watcher (book #9), Bones (book #10), and Fury (book #11). Upcoming
titles in the series include: Cassie (book #12).

Excerpt

From Chapter 13 in Gypsy’s Lady, book #11.5 in the Rebel
Wayfarers MC book series

Gypsy

“No girl, no cash. You think because I’m American I’m stupid,
Baxter?” Gypsy shook his head in counterfeit distress, pushing to his feet from
the low couch. Everything about the room screamed Baxter’s need to put himself
in a superior position, and that only echoed the self-important details about
the kidnapper’s compound far in the country. His men were strolling the grounds
with visible weapons, but Gypsy could read the men’s unease with having so much
firepower. If it came down to a fight, they wouldn’t be anything near a match
for the Hawks. Now he had to talk Baxter into bringing him the girl so he could
communicate the plan. Stoke and Talon both swore she had a steady head on her
shoulders, and they were confident if he could tell her what was going down,
she’d find a way to help. Fuck, I hope they’re right.

“I’ve got the girl. No worries.” Baxter leaned against the
wall, managing to look prissy doing even that. “I want to see the cash.”

“You’ve already seen it.” Gypsy had opened the case at the
gate as instructed and aimed it to where a camera could see. They’d already
known about the camera, but it was validation for Myron’s info. The Hawks were
able to hear everything he did, thanks to some tech the Hawks’ member Beast had
handed over. They’d claimed it was undetectable, and so far, they’d been proven
right, as Baxter’s man had run a wand over Gypsy, coming up with nothing. “No
need to play show and tell again. You want a deal? Then I want. To see. The
girl.”

Baxter gestured towards the door and ordered, “Malcolm, go get
her.”

No one spoke while they waited for the man to return, Gypsy’s
gaze never leaving Baxter’s face. Filth, he thought, I’m in the presence of
filth. He didn’t know if he’d ever had to fight such a strong an urge to kill a
man. Here sat a wealthy beast, someone who appeared to be any businessman you’d
meet on the street, but his trade was flesh. And not willing flesh, either.
Other than Nary, which was personal, he seemed to specialize in women who
wouldn’t be missed, preying on vulnerable girls for his own, vast profit. Dickweed
needs to die.

The door opened, and it was all Gypsy could do to stay seated
on the couch. The woman, scarcely more than a girl, walked in. She cringed away
at the forced proximity to one of her jailers. Clearly, the man had put his
hands on her in a damaging way, and Gypsy casually marked him for death. Her
face was bruised and scabbed, and she carried a hell of a scar there that
thankfully appeared to predate her abduction. She looked at Gypsy and her chin
lifted even as her eyes blinked rapidly, forcing back tears. A fighter, just
like her father had said.

It was the work of moments to maneuver the girl near enough
for him to lean in, his voice audible only to her as he spoke quickly. Once the
Hawks knew he had her within reach, they’d begin executing the plan for
extraction, and he didn’t have long to prep her. For an instant, he wasn’t
certain his words had registered, but when he pulled back, making another crass
remark to keep the illusion of the callous high-dollar purchase going, in her
eyes was a glint that told him she wasn’t done fighting. Good girl.

Counting down the seconds, he found his trust in the Hawks was
well placed when Talon, Dodge, Stoke, and Vicious came through the door,
exactly on time. His focus was on Nary as she was his primary objective, at
least until she was back in her father’s arms.

Everything was going perfectly, until she told him there was
another woman.

devouring books of every genre. Self-described as a book-a-holic, she

hip hop … you name it, I listen to it. I can often be seen dancing
through the house in the early mornings. But I really, REALLY love live
music. My favorite thing with music is seeing bands in small, dive bars

of premium tequila, then that’s a plus!”

JUST RELEASED!! A LOW BLUE FLAME….

 
Title: A Low Blue Flame
Series: Indigo Knights Book III
Author:  A.J. Downey
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 22, 2018

Cover Model: Chase Ketron

Photographer: Golden Czermak

Cover designed by: Dar Albert from Wicked Smart Designs 

 

 

Lillian
Banks’ career took off like a house on fire and she’s on top of the world.
Great job that she loves, moved to a great city, into an opulent new condo, in
one of the world’s premier smart buildings no less; all she was missing was the
kind of romance to set her soul aflame. She thought she’d found it but instead,
found herself burned.

 

 

Backdraft
knows what it’s like to get burned and not just by fire. His ex, Torri, did
quite the number on him recently by banging one of his firehouse bros behind
his back. He’s sworn off love and dating altogether for the time being and is
happier for it. He just wishes he could get the time he wasted with that crazy
skank back again.

 

 

Out of
the ashes, an unlikely friendship is formed. Backdraft and Lilli could find themselves
rising if only they can get past their hurts and give things a chance. Of
course, lasting happiness is no guarantee, no matter how much they might burn
for each other. After all, sometimes what was doesn’t want to let go.

 

 

 

 

I missed
Lil, like a fractured ache in my chest, but that was probably because the
revelation that I’d read her book. Goddamn, I’d never been so in tune with
another woman in my life. The look on her face. I knew I’d done something
unexpectedly profound, but I had never seen someone fall completely in love and
had that look trained on me. That was exactly what I’d seen, though, and it
affected me like nothing else ever had.
She’d
looked at me the way Chrissy looked at Youngblood, the way Aly looked at Yale,
and I had craved it like a drowning man craved air. I’d been a little sad to
realize I had never seen a look like that on Torrid, but at the same time, I
could honestly say, I’d loved her but not in the way I was falling for Lil.
This was something so deep, so profound, that if I were drowning? Well, if this
was what drowning in another human being was? I’d die a happy man and I hadn’t
even gotten to so much as kiss her yet.
I
showered and when I got out, I lay on my back on my side of the bed mindlessly
channel-surfing in a pair of my boxer-briefs. I had nothing else to do while I
waited on Lil to come back to me. I had to say, it was a special kind of
torture. I didn’t see or hear a goddamned thing playing out over the hotel’s TV
set. All I kept seeing was that look she’d given me; all I could hear was that
stunned dream-like quality to her voice. “You read my book?”
Such an
innocuous sentence, but one that changed me forever, soul deep. I shut off the
TV and sat up when I heard her key card in the lock, leaping to my feet when
the door handle depressed. I waited, my heart damn near in my throat, as she
rounded the corner and stopped just a few feet from me.
She
looked up at me, those storm-swept gray-blue eyes of hers calling me home, like
some sort of siren and I slowly closed the gap between us. I cradled her face
in my hands and just drank her in by silent sight for several moments. It was
the first time that I’d ever been with a woman where literally nothing needed
to be said. Instead, I let my body do the talking and my lips do the walking as
I lowered my face to hers.
Her
breath, sweet with champagne, fanned over my lips as she let out a relieved
little gasp and then we were kissing. Slow and sensual, neither one of us
wanting to be rushed, her skin smooth as silk under my hands as I smoothed them
down her graceful neck and over her shoulders, leaping from her arms to her
ribs to caress that hourglass shape through her gown.
She let
out a light little sigh of relief and I let my hands sweep to her back to find
the hidden zipper there, lowering it, even as her hands fluttered lightly onto
my heated skin, slightly cool to the touch and setting me further aflame from
it.

Chrissy Franco has every reason to take one hell of a victory lap around the courtroom. She’s just defended her client to the best of her ability and what’s more? Her client was actually innocent. Oh, she’d killed her husband, baseball legend Skip Maguire, alright; but he’d been about to hit a homerun with Miranda’s head.
His rabid fan base doesn’t agree with the verdict, and they’ve set their sights on Chrissy as the one to blame. One of them is about to set into motion a dangerous game when he publishes poor Chrissy’s address online…
Enter Tony McCormick, a detective with the right kind of attitude and Chrissy’s sort of ex-boyfriend. When he’s called to Chrissy’s apartment, he’s prepared for the worst. He’s a homicide detective after all. When he arrives, it seems that someone might have forgotten to check to see if Chrissy was still alive… now it’s everything he can do to find the man who did this and the other behind it all before it’s really too late.

 

 


Assistant
District Attorney Damien Parnell leads a double life above and beyond his
membership with the Indigo Knights. Driven by dark desires considered shameful
by most, he covets the one thing he can’t allow himself to have – a real
relationship.
Enter
Ally Blaylock, an innocent by Yale’s standards. She’s the sweet and beautiful
girl who makes his coffee at the café across the street from his office. She’s
done her best to flirt off and on with the high powered attorney and he can’t
help but be drawn to her whimsical charm.
When Ally
finds her world tipped on its axis, Yale goes against his better judgment and
offers her some unlikely help. He knows better than most that the road to hell
is paved with good intentions, but in this particular case, could it be the
opposite? Could Allison Blaylock be the start down the road to his
salvation?

She has no idea what lurks behind the forbidden doors of the House of Sin…

He is temptation. Forbidden fruit. A craving I can’t seem to resist.

I went after him in search of answers, certain he had blood on his hands. Now I’ve fallen prey to his seductive looks and commanding charisma.

I know he is a threat. He’s entwined in a dangerous world I don’t understand. But that doesn’t stop me from aching for his touch, for the taste of his wicked lips.

Before I can truly surrender to the fire smoldering between us, I need to know more. I have to see behind the doors he keeps firmly locked.

I need to discover what he’s hiding in the shadowy world known as the House of Sin…

**WARNING!**
This book is very sexy, very dark, and very addictive! Contains consensual kink and a dark and dominant hero with a dangerous secret. This is a big story that can’t be told in only one book so there is a cliffhanger – but never fear, book two releases three weeks later.

Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | iBooks

“You don’t want me,” he whispered in a lifeless voice, one I’d never heard from him. “You want a taste of the forbidden. Of what you think you saw at that party in New York. But what’s in me is not the same. It’s worse. It’s a darkness you can’t even imagine. And if you stay, it will devour you too.”

My heart thumped hard against my ribs as I tried to make sense of what he’d just said. I hadn’t been afraid once since I’d been with him, but I couldn’t deny the alarm sounding in my head as I looked into his haunted eyes. Because that was what they were, I realized. Haunted. By shadows and memories that sent icy fingers of dread down my spine. Whatever he was remembering, whatever he struggled with was so terrifying, it had just sucked the life out of his eyes right in front of me, leaving behind only a ghost of the man I’d spent the last few days with.

Could I survive that kind of darkness? I swallowed hard, trying to think.

He was right. What drew me to him wasn’t just his animal magnetism or his insanely good looks or even his overwhelming, protective nature. I was drawn to the very thing he seemed desperate to keep from me. To the danger swirling around him. To the shadows lurking in his eyes. To that forbidden darkness buried inside that was at the root of his need for dominance and control and even his hunger for me.

About Elisabeth Naughton

Before topping multiple bestseller lists—including those of the New York Times, USA Today, and the Wall Street Journal—award winning author Elisabeth Naughton taught middle school science. A voracious reader, she soon discovered she had a knack for creating stories with a chemistry of their own. The spark turned into a flame, and Elisabeth now writes full-time.

Elisabeth has penned over thirty books and continues to write in multiple genres. Her books have been translated into numerous languages and have earned several award nominations, including three prestigious RITA® nominations from Romance Writers of America. In 2017, REPRESSED, the first book in her Deadly Secrets series, won the RITA® for best romantic suspense.

Her work has been praised by the Chicago Tribune as being filled with “deadly intrigue, high adrenaline action, and scorchingly hot passion.” Kirkus calls her “a writer talented enough at weaving a yarn to get her readers ensnared in it.” When not dreaming up new stories, Elisabeth can be found spending time with her husband and three children in their western Oregon home, wrangling two needy cats, or chasing after one very rambunctious Dalmatian.

The only way the system was reliable when it came to Tiffany
Dempsey was in failing her. Once again, it’d done just that, but this time, she
wasn’t about to accept that nothing could be done. This time, she went to a
source outside the law for help. She’s gone to the Sacred Hearts MC, a club whose
reputation for bloodshed and violence precedes them. It’s a gamble she’s
willing to take; desperate times call for desperate measures and she’s never
been more desperate than she is right now.

Zeb joined the Sacred Hearts by way of a second chance when he thought he had
none. He’s determined to do right by his club and himself by changing his ways.
So, when Dragon, his president, asks him for help, he doesn’t hesitate. He’s
more than happy to give the pretty little stripper with the scarred up face a second
chance of her own. The way he sees it, a survivor like her has more than earned
it.

Neither Tiff nor Zeb expected that this protective detail would be anything
other than a strictly business-like arrangement, but the two find quickly that
they complement each other in just about every way. Maybe, just maybe, it’s
what Dragon had planned. After all, the president of the SHMC is sort of crafty
like that.

“Tiffany, what’s wrong?” I heard Nik say distantly, but my
adrenaline was spiking and I was already moving.
“I’ll call you back, I think he’s here.”
“What?” Nik demanded sharply.
“Go now, Tiff, my office,” Alan said gently and I went.
“Alan’s sending me to his office, Zeke’s handling it at the
front. I’m okay for now,” I told Nik. Despite Alan trying to keep me calm, my
heart was pounding. I almost didn’t register what Nik said.
“I’m on my way, just do what your boss says.”
“I am,” I told him, but I was talking to the empty air, Nik
was already gone.
I clattered up the back stairs in my stripper heels and kicked
the door to Alan’s office closed and turned the lock. I figured it was his
office and he had the key. The space was small, and a bank of windows
overlooked the floor below. It was all right, though. They were mirrors on the
outside and you could only see inside at very specific angles. If I sat at the
desk in front of the windows and ducked down a bit behind the monitors, I would
be invisible so that’s precisely what I did. I sat at Alan’s desk, heart
pounding, stomach curdling, and kept bouncing my gaze back and forth between
the cameras on the monitors and out the window at the floor below.
Zeke was on camera, out front, hands raised and pushing down
in his classic ‘calm the fuck down, I’m trying to explain something to you’
pose. Alan stood back, beside the bar, his cell phone pressed to his ear,
nodding and speaking occasionally into it.
My heart thudded painfully in my chest as someone outside the
camera’s range swung on Zeke, in a flash, out of nowhere, and Zeke went
crashing to the ground out like a light. Silas strode forward into the camera’s
view and then, through the front door, larger than life and screaming at the
top of his lungs. Dancers stopped, patrons stood up, and Alan walked calmly
forward.
I couldn’t hear anything. There was nothing to hear, the
office up here was so well insulated and soundproofed only the dullest thumping
of the music’s bass beat made it through. I swallowed hard as Silas stopped
just outside Alan’s reach and Alan waved him forward with a broad sweep of his
arm.
“What are you doing?” I asked, and realized he was taking
Silas on a tour, either to get him out or to buy time for whoever he had been
on the phone with to get here. I knew Nik would make it. I knew he would be
here, I just didn’t know when, and with how fast and how hard Silas had knocked
Zeke out? I didn’t know if I wanted Nik to square off with him.
I was suddenly very afraid for my lover and biker bodyguard.
I followed Silas and Alan from camera to camera but kept
glancing back to Zeke who was sitting up now and rubbing his jaw. My chest
loosened with a bit of relief at that and I still couldn’t believe that Silas
had gotten the drop on him like that. Zeke was good at his job and I’d seen him
handle himself in more than a few fights before.
The phone in my hand buzzed and I answered it without looking,
“Hello?”
Indistinct club noise came through the line and voices, hard
to make out. I looked at the screen and realized Alan had dialed me.
“What’s up there?” I heard Silas demand.
“My office.”
Shit!
I got up and looked around and finally had to settle for
ducking into his bathroom up here. I stepped into the shower and pulled the
curtain, holding the phone to my chest as I heard the door being messed with
out front.
I held my breath and ended the call, fighting with the phone
to silence the ringer just in case.
“I told you, there’s no one up here,” I heard Alan declare.
“We have no dancer by that name at this club. Now, as I told you downstairs,
the police have been notified about you striking my bouncer. You can clearly
see there is no one up here, so please leave.”
I heard the bathroom door swing wide and bounce against the
wall and the fear swarmed over my skin, sweat standing out along my spine under
the short, light silk robe Alan had gifted me after my first year here. He did
things like that on all of the girls’ anniversaries.
“Fine,” Silas grated. “But I don’t believe you. What is it?
Her night off or something?”
“I swear to you, there’s no ‘Tiffany’ here.” Alan maintained.
“I find out you’re lying to me, I’m coming back here and
burning this place to the fucking ground with you in it.”
Their voices receded and I squeezed my eyes shut, hot tears
tracking down my face. All he’d needed to do to find me had been to pull back
the curtain. He just hadn’t thought to do it. Dumb luck on my part? Who knew?
All I did know was that he was going or gone and I found myself choking on a
silent scream that I would not let out from behind my teeth.
I slid down the wall onto my butt against the cold tile and shuddered,
sweat slick against my palms where I clutched my phone with both of them over
my heart, like it would protect me or something. The blood rushed in my ears
and when the curtain jerked back I screamed and cringed but it was Zeke that
knelt down, a purple knot swelling on his jawline. He put his hands on mine and
said, “Easy, Tiff! Easy it’s just me.”
“Is he gone?” I cried and a hand fell onto Zeke’s shoulder.
Zeke jumped and turned but immediately relaxed and got out of the way of our
boss who knelt down in front of me.
“He’s gone,” Alan assured me.
“Are you sure?”
“I’m sure, I’m so sorry. I had to get him out of here. You did
great.” He patted my cheek, the side without the mask, and he looked sorry.

 

 

 

 

 

In The Series

 

Melody Beswick thought she was
bringing herself and her thirteen month old son home to his father. It was her
last ditch effort to make a better life for her and her boy. One in which Noah
had a father to look up to and guide him. While she knew Grinder wasn’t perfect,
she believed in him, and love always found a way, right?
Melody never thought her dreams for herself and her son could twist into such
nightmares, and that it was so true, the old adage, that the road to hell is
paved with good intentions. She’s about to find out that another adage is true,
that sometimes it’s better the devil you know, when instead of finding Grinder,
it’s his cold and critical brother Archer at the end of her long drive that she
must contend with.

With no other options, and no place else to go, Melody is about to make a deal
with this devil that she can’t refuse. Who knew it could, quite possibly, be
the best decision she’s ever made?

Fate introduces people at both the right and the wrong times…
So it is for Maren on the absolute worst day imaginable. When all hope was gone, and she was whittled away to little more than tears and despair, up walks Nox, an unlikely hero to save the day. Maren is about to discover that sometimes the good guys wear black, and there are times that the lines between good and evil blur beyond recognition.
Nox is a bad man with a heart of gold, or so it seems. It also seems that Maren has captured that heart with her wide, tear filled brown eyes. Nox never saw himself going for jailbait before, but that’s just what Maren is, all woman trapped in a seventeen year old package. Still, what he wouldn’t do for her, including taking on the unlikely role of keeper to her unruly preteen brother.
 
This mess could end beautifully or in some serious time spent behind bars for Nox, but sometimes, it’s worth risking it all.

Rush had always been the brother that was the most up for adventure. Then Grinder died and he realized that it was time to slow down. Fast-forward by a year and more and his older brother Archer had found Mel. Hell, his own twin was with a woman of his own! Rush is starting to get restless again, which was just perfect. Cue a string of anonymous hook-ups and one night stands. It was enough to feed the restlessness for a while, then an adventure of sorts came a callin’ by way of the VP’s estranged aunt and the President’s sister-in-law.
Her daughter was in need of some kind of white knight, which Rush could care less about, but the white knight routine did come with a pretty big perk. It would mean that he got to go back to a job that had, once upon a time, felt like a calling.
Of course, nothing was ever easy where Rush was concerned, especially when he actually set eyes on the damsel in distress. One, she wasn’t some paper princess, and two, she definitely didn’t want him around. After all, one-night hook-ups were supposed to be just that… one and done.

 Reckless, dangerous, and out of control; these are the words most often applied to the SHMC’s brother Duracell. Which is why no one can understand what the deal is between him and Blue. Blue is none of those things; if anything he’s quiet, shy, and as mild-mannered as they come. There’s no balance between these two yet they are inexplicably a team. Then Blue gets a single look at Hayley, and it’s all it takes for him to know she’s their third.

Is Hayley the woman for them? A match for Blue sure, but strong enough to withstand the bizarre tempest of Cell’s personality? The two MC brothers have set their sights on the waitress and have been patiently feeling her out. Now it’s time to take the next step and see if she’s indeed able to date the both of them.

She’ll either bring balance to the boys, or Cell’s pull will knock them all off balance and send them crashing, burning them all out before anything can even fully ignite.

Data has always been the quiet brother on the fringes of the club. Always there when you need him, but never quite fully engaged. That’s because he’s been harboring a secret. Long before he joined the club, he had a friend who meant the world to him; she disappeared, prompting Data to search for her… he’s been looking ever since.
A mysterious message appears on an internet forum:
Does anyone remember Amalia Rose?

 

Of course he does, and he will stop at nothing to get her back. His secret is out, and life is about to change for everyone in some surprising ways.

Damien Morgan learned a long time ago that love was just a figment of someone’s warped imagination and good girls simply didn’t exist because women were master manipulators. Nonetheless, he’s happy to wish his brother well when he decides to take the plunge.

Serenity Hanscom is shocked that she’s been invited to the wedding a year after her sister played matchmaker for the groom and had an active role in a plot to murder his sister-in-law. Despite the rather unusual circumstances, Serenity accepts the invitation because it’s an opportunity to mingle with Miami’s elites. But the second she catches sight of Damien, she’s reminded of the horrible events that led to her father’s imprisonment, all because of him. Determined to ignore him, as the evening goes by, she finds herself drawn to him more and more.

Will their plan to stay clear of love backfire on them and instead become the first step to an unexpected happily-ever-after?

While this story is a standalone novel that belongs to the House of Morgan, there are mentions of the Marshall Family Saga, the Hawke Fortune, A Frosted Game of Hearts, and even Princes of Avce characters and storylines are all intertwined in the same world.
