EXCERPT:

Amanda

It’s Monday.

Our home looks like the set for Extreme Home Makeover, except there’s no bus to move and all of the workmen act like I’m invisible as I wander downstairs after waking up naked in an empty bed.

I throw on clothes and am down the stairs when I spot my husband.

“What is going on?” I ask Andrew, who is huddled over blueprints with some guy who looks like he runs a union hall in South Boston. Tight eyes, distrustful look, goatee, and an intensity that makes it clear you want him on your side.

Andrew breaks away, kisses my cheek, and gives me a saucy half grin. “Just like you wanted. Here we go.”

“Here we go what? We barely talked about what we wanted!”

“We did,” he says, suddenly defensive. “In bed,” he whispers.

“What I want in bed has nothing to do with tile colors and three-season sunrooms!” I say.

Loudly.

“The guys aren’t working on anything like that,” he hisses as a few workmen suppress smiles. “We’re putting in new backup systems.”

“Backups for what?”

“Power outages. Acts of God. Hurricanes. Bomb cyclones that leave six feet of snow.”

I snort. “What, no alien contingency plan? Got a blueprint for a universal extraterrestrial language translator in there?”

Andrew reddens and avoids eye contact.

I frown. “Andrew?” I grab his arm and pull him aside, his muscles tense. “What are you doing? This isn’t how I envisioned remodeling and spending our honeymoon. For one, we didn’t have sex that second time this morning.”

He looks at the clock. “It’s only 7:53. Plenty of time for that.” He grabs me at the waist and pulls me close, trying to divert me with a kiss.

It works.

“We’ve got the geothermal heat unit figured out, and when we redo the gutter system and the roof, in addition to the solar panels, we’ve got an evaporation system set up for clean water collection. Storage is next,” he says to me.

“All that in the first hour of work?” I’m stunned.

“I’m efficient. Two weeks of my focused attention is like five years of a normal human
being’s time.”

“Efficient and humble. I love that in a man.”

“You’d better, because you’re stuck with me forever.”

“Is that a threat or a promise?”

I get a pat on the ass in response.

TRAILER



EXCERPT

I pointed my stick at his chest, noticing it no longer had blood splatter on it.

“For God’s sake, Jenna! Is that really necessary?”

I clutched my weapon tighter.

Damian let out a frustrated sigh. “After what you saw, you really think a stick would stop me?”

“Yeah,” I lied.

“If I wanted to hurt you, I’d have done it by now.”

“Comforting.”

“You know I’d never hurt you.”

“No, I don’t. I don’t know anything about you.” And I didn’t trust my judgment. It’d been wrong before…

Damian rubbed his ribs. Evidently, I’d gotten in some good swings. I shouldn’t have felt a rush of triumph.

“Leave,” I insisted.

He looked at me sharply. “You can’t be serious.”

“I’m deadly serious.”

Damian pinched the bridge of his nose. “I’m trying to be patient here, Jenna, but it’s been a long night. You’re wet and cold, and you need to come back to the truck before you get hypothermia.”

“I’m not going anywhere with you.”

“Yes, you are.”

“No, I’m not,” I said, raising the stick when he reached for me.

“I’m not leaving you alone out here, Jenna, so cut it out!” He reached for me again, so I swung, but he dodged it and glowered at me.

How frustrating it must be to be so strong and yet powerless to move one small girl.

Damian looked up at the sky, then back at me. “Come back to the building, out of the rain.”

“No.”

“My truck, then. Lock me out if you want, but come out of the woods. It’s not safe.”

“No.”

He scanned my body with a tightened jaw, clearly contemplating just throwing me over his shoulder and carrying me out.

“Don’t even think about it,” I warned. “I’m not going anywhere with you.”

“I’m not leaving you alone out here,” Damian said, irritated. The massive chunk of muscles took another step toward me.

I raised my bat.

“You go,” Damian pointed behind him. “I’ll stay, for God’s sake.”

“You might follow me.”

“For the love of…” Damian’s chest swelled as he ran a hand through his hair. “Why do you have to make this so difficult?”

“Because I don’t know who you are!”

He held the back of his neck. “What do I have to do to get you to leave?”

Nothing. There was nothing Damian could do to convince me to leave with him. Not tonight, not ever.

This whole time he’d been hiding who he really was.

Dirty Deal

A Slayers Hockey Novel

Mira Lyn Kelly

November 19th, 2021

    Synopsis:
I’m not exactly “Daddy” material.
Fatherhood blindsided me. There I am, working to get a rise out of my cranky little rule-following, fun-wrecking, soon-to-be ex-neighbor when my one-night stand from last season shows up… in labor. Next thing, I’m a single-dad begging for a crash course in caring for this tiny miracle from the neighbor who loves to hate me. Turns out, Nora raised half her siblings. She knows things. And I know my son needs her. Unfortunately, she’s not impressed by my NHL career, my legendary charm, or the rumors surrounding the size of my stick (all true btw). But I’m not trying to impress her. Not anymore. I can’t. I’m asking her to help me out, because my son deserves better than some player who hasn’t even had a chance to read the manual yet. Which means no matter how hot I find her spitfire mouth and those rules she doesn’t break… Nora is off-limits.

The truth hurts, but lies can kill…

I offer to do anything to save my father’s life when he’s captured by the devil he owes a debt to.

A three-million-dollar debt.

So, I became the devil’s spy as I enter the lair of the Cartel King to take a job as a live-in nanny for his niece.

My orders were simple.
All I needed to do was this:

Get close to the Cartel King.
Be his to do anything he wants me to do.
Make him trust me enough to tell me the secrets his enemies need.

Do that, and I will save my father.

I just never expected to fall in love.
Or that Alejandro Ramírez would be the first man to heal my broken heart.

When he discovers the truth, I may wish I’d died instead of making that deal with the devil.


‘Ruthless King’ is the sixth book in the Dark Syndicate series. It is a standalone Age-Gap Dark Mafia Romance, complete with HEA and no cliffhangers.
Please note: It contains dubious situations, mature content, and graphic violence some readers might find offensive and/or triggering.

EXCERPT

Raw heat is still streaking through my body just from the mere handshake.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more perfect man.
Eyes the shade of a crow’s wing are locked on mine, and full symmetrical lips quirk up into a mercurial smile.
His face is all angles with high exotic cheekbones and a chiseled jaw you’d find on a storybook prince. The bright morning sun shines over his skin, making it look like the sun kissed it that color bronze.
The gray streaks in his beard, hairline, and temples only serve to highlight his beauty and strength in what I can see of the rest of his body. As if to highlight that his perfection came with age and he’ll look even better and better, and sexier, the older he gets. The silver hoop in his ear tames him a fraction, adding to his style but also conjuring the image of a pirate in my mind. It gives a glimpse of the conquering cartel king he is.
Of course, I was given a picture of Alejandro Ramírez before coming to this ill-fated interview. So, I already knew he looks like a seamless blend of Antonio Banderas and my all-time favorite Mexican actor Eduardo Verástegui.
Alejandro is what they would look like if they were one person.
The lucid image makes me wonder if I really am stuck in a fucked-up rendition of a dark fairytale. One where he is the prince and I’m the villain, or maybe everyone is the antithesis to good in this story.

Unable to resist her curiosity, she falls directly into a mess of trouble and runs head-first into the attractive detective inspector, Teo Herceg. She tries to balance her business with the investigation, but as the killer focuses on her, staying alive becomes trickier than advanced origami.

EXCERPT

“This is your favorite drink?” he asks, sitting back down on his stool then pointing at the martini.

“Yes. I don’t drink often, but when I do, I like something sweet. I have a huge sweet-tooth.” I reach for my martini to take a drink and, in full Destiny-klutzery, I manage to graze the rim with the side of my hand, smearing chocolate syrup and graham cracker crumbs from below my pinky down to my wrist. Thank God I didn’t knock the whole thing over. That would’ve been a classic move and thoroughly embarrassing.

Holding onto his jacket so it doesn’t fall off my shoulders, I reach across the bar for a napkin to wipe off my hand. Nicco stops me mid-reach, takes my wrist in his hand and wraps his fingers firmly, yet gently, around it. I look into his smoldering eyes and he locks his gaze on me.

Lifting my hand to his mouth, he sucks at the chocolate syrup on the meat of my hand then moves down to my wrist, never shifting his eyes from mine. As he circles his warm tongue around my wrist bone, heat burns up my chest, through my neck, and scorches my face. The rooms spins and blurs around us. My increasing pulse thumps in my ears.

Releasing my hand from his mouth, he looks down and inspects his work. Not fully satisfied, he slowly flicks the tip of his tongue at the tiny bits of syrup he missed. My breaths are heavy as I watch him. Having seen his movie, I can’t help but wonder what it would feel like to have his tongue on other parts of me. Good God, cut it out.
