Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward are excited to bring you the Cocky Hero Club: original works from various authors inspired by Keeland and Ward’s New York Times bestselling Cocky Bastard series.
Detached. Driven. Focused.
Those are the qualities that helped me win multiple Olympic medals, and when fate ended my swimming career early, those same qualities led me to run a thriving Manhattan restaurant business.
But all of my success did nothing to prepare me for Savannah Reese.
She’s beautiful, but also clumsy, awkward, and determined to make me question everything I ever believed to be true about myself. I thought I had all I wanted in life, until she shows me what I have been missing.
But she refuses to fall for my charm, especially once she’s hired by my business partner as a consultant.
Every word, every glance, every stolen touch, they only make me want her more. And for the first time ever, I want more than just one night with a woman.
I came to New York for a fresh start and to prove that I could make it on my own. So far, so good. I’ve got a place to live, a job, friends, and cheap wine and Cheetos to keep me company at night.
I thought I was happy. Okay, I thought I was content.
Until Alexander Devlin comes along with all of his suave British charm. He’s the kind of man your mama warned you about. Arrogant, sexy, and dangerous to a woman’s heart. He’s also my boss. Which should make him off limits… Except he doesn’t seem to think so…
This sexy swimmer is out to seduce me, and I can only resist him for so long.
Seductive Swimmer is a steamy workplace/sports romance inspired by Mister Moneybags.

When Ashley called Beth and told her about the trip Beth immediately became excited and accepted the invitation.
While they still spoke on the phone Beth Forester took out her suitcase and opened the top. The trip would be in two days and time always seemed to go by fast for her. She packed two bags of food and got a fishing pole out of the garage.
“Don’t worry about anything but driving yourself to the camp site. I’ll bring all the food and after we get off the phone I’ll make everyone’s reservations for them.” As soon as the camping reservations were made Tara called Ashley back and she also
accepted the trip invitation.
