The closeted sports star and a straight paramedic, the heli-skiing trip that traps the two men on a mountain and a game of twenty questions. What could go wrong? Or will it be the moment they get all they’ve ever wanted? In discovering their bisexuality, will Reef and Ford be brave enough to reach for each other?
Pro-snowboarder, Reef Reid, is at the peak of his career. He has it all. Except the one thing he desperately wants: a lover, the white picket fence and his happily ever after. Disillusioned and exhausted, he flees to a tropical paradise to defrost. 
But a ticketing mishap lands him in the ski village of Queenstown, New Zealand.
Stratford ‘Ford’ Wallace loves the ladies, but rarely sticks around longer than a night. Falling for a man wasn’t on the cards, but everything he knows is flipped on its head when the enigmatic Reef Reid literally drops out of the sky. 
When a whiteout traps them on a mountaintop neither expects sparks to ignite. They’re unable to resist each other, but will they give into temptation? Or will the avalanche that tears through the mountain end them? 
Whiteout is book one in Ann Grech’s international hit male/male romance series, Unexpected. Books 2 and 3 continue Reef and Ford’s story through the highs and lows of the pro-snowboarding circuit. You’ll fall in love, want to slap a certain someone or two and swoon over these two men who are made for each other.
Bisexual sports star, Reef Reid, is back in action on the slopes with his new boyfriend, paramedic, Ford Wallace by his side. Taking the next step in their relationship was supposed to be easy, but fate has other plans. Will they be able to hold out against the forces trying to tear them apart?
Paramedic and mountain rescuer, Stratford ‘Ford’ Wallace, fell hard and fast for pro-snowboarder, Reef Reid. For a ‘straight’ guy, falling in love with a dude was unexpected, but his attraction to Reef is undeniable. Neither of them have uttered those three little words yet, but Ford knows Reef feels the same. At least, he thinks he does.
Reef is smashing his pre-season training at Fernie, the idyllic Canadian snow resort, getting wicked air and landing what could be season-winning jumps. What’s even better is that his man is with him. Going home to Ford every night is what Reef always dreamed of—his very own happily ever after. 
Knowing they’re ready, they take the next step in their relationship—meeting the parents. But when tragedy strikes on the slopes, can Ford push through the painful memories and be what Reef needs? 
Ford will sacrifice himself, literally putting both his heart and his life on the line, to protect his man. But will it all be for nothing when Reef is presented with an offer that’s too good to refuse? 
White Noise is book two in Ann Grech’s international hit male/male romance series, Unexpected. It can be read as a standalone, but it’s recommended that you read Whiteout first. Book 3 continues Reef and Ford’s story through the highs and lows of the pro-snowboarding circuit. You’ll fall in love and swoon over these two men who are made for each other.
Reef and Ford are back, and they’re playing for keeps. For their forever. It’s hard; harder than they ever imagined. But they’re strong. And even though falling for each other was unexpected, they’ll do whatever it takes to be together, including overcoming any obstacles in their path.
Pro snowboarder, Reef Reed, is on the precipice. His chance of winning the world championship is within reach. But he’s navigating a treacherous path, one which is full of incredible highs and soul-crushing lows. Crippling stress, insurmountable distances between him and his boyfriend, jealousy, and illness threaten everything he’s worked for. His relationship with Ford is tested in ways Reef couldn’t have fathomed. 
Ford Wallace will do anything within his power to help his man soar high and achieve his dreams. But the season has been hard on both of them; watching all Reef’s hard work unravel from afar is unbearable for the healer at heart. So he fights—they both do—for their happiness and love, and they emerge on the other side stronger than ever before.
Whitewash is book 3 in Ann Grech’s international hit male/male romance trilogy, Unexpected. It can be read as a standalone, but it’s recommended that you’ve read Whiteout and White Noise first. You’ll fall for these two men who are absolutely made for each other.
K. D. Elendil – 5* “I had to read this in installments because I didn’t want it to end.” ~ Whiteout
Louise McKay – 5* “Choosing to read this book for me was a major step out of my comfort zone. I don’t read MM books… It’s never appealed to me before but the blurb on this book made me want to read it… Reading this has made me realise, you can’t generalise genres of books. If you do you may miss out on a hidden gem. That’s how I feel about this book.” ~ Whiteout
Carle – 5* “Wow! FanF’ntastic. This book has it all. Bring on book 3!” ~ White Noise
Tina~Bookaliciousbabes – 5* “This was the ultimate end to a great series. Reef and Ford will forever be in my heart… I loved every second of it.” ~ Whitewash
By day Ann Grech lives the corporate world and can be found sitting behind a desk typing away at reports and papers or lecturing to a room full of students. She graduated with a PhD in 2016 and is now an over-qualified nerd. Glasses, briefcase, high heels and a pencil skirt, she’s got the librarian look nailed too. If only they knew! She swears like a sailor, so that’s got to be a hint. The other one was “the look” from her tattoo artist when she told him that she wanted her kids initials “B” and “J” tattooed on her foot. It took a second to register that it might be a bad idea.
She’s never entirely fit in and loves escaping into a book—whether it’s reading or writing one. But she’s found her tribe now and loves her MM book world family. She dislikes cooking, but loves eating, can’t figure out technology, but is addicted to it, and her guilty pleasure is Byron Bay Cookies. Oh and shoes. And lingerie. And maybe handbags too. Well, if we’re being honest, we’d probably have to add her library too given the state of her credit card every month (what can she say, she’s a bookworm at heart)!

Blurb

“You’re the big boss.” She looked up at me and smiled. She was dressed in a cheap cotton shirt and jeans that should be on the burn pile, but that smile was pure gold. This girl had guts.

“I told José he was a fool to try and cheat you,” she said. “I wasn’t part of it, and I don’t work for you. I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

She’d heard about our policy protecting bystanders. Of course it doesn’t apply to anyone whose eyewitness testimony can put me in a courtroom. Well, try to put me in a courtroom. In Mexico nobody would dare accuse me, and I’ve enough resources in England to guarantee a police investigation would come to nothing, but it’s not my style to take chances. Solitaire would be going into the ground along with Escamilla.

“Mr Vazquez,” Solitaire gave me her best smile. “I don’t expect something for nothing.” She dropped her voice. “You’d like me,” she whispered. “I’ve heard about you. We’re the same.”

“Are we?”

“Yes, I can make you very happy.” She brushed my hand over her cheek and then kissed my palm. “I’m a very good girl,” she said quietly. “Unless you prefer a naughty one?”

She sucked my thumb, and I was instantly rock hard.

—————————-

When cartel boss Arturo Vazquez discovers his girlfriend Gina is a DEA rat and his deputy Escamilla is staging a take-over, Arturo fixes his problems by killing everyone – except for Solitaire, Escamilla’s unwilling mistress. Solitaire is intelligent, tough, and shares Arturo’s interest in BDSM. Arturo falls head over heels but someone is leaking information – and the evidence point at Solitaire.

Songbird is a complete and self standing novel in the Zeta series. Warning: This bad boy dark romance contains explicit scenes of dubious consent, graphic violence and strong language. It is for adults only.

I could’ve strangled her. She knew it too because she stepped away quickly. “Touch me and I’ll have you!” she snarled.
“Bruja mala leche! What the fuck do you think you’re playing at! You can’t push me around!”
“Sure I can.” Her eyes were slate grey, the same colour as the sky, and just as cold. “I need help, and you’re going to give it.” 
“What the hell are you talking about?”
“I’ve got a situation. I need someone who isn’t afraid of murder and mayhem.”
I should have charmed her, offered to help and maybe it would have settled it, but I was too mad to even consider it. “Help you? Over my dead body!”
She shrugged. “We can do it that way, too.” She took out her phone. “I’ll call you soon, hopefully within the hour. If you still refuse, I call Smith.” The eyes were hard. “I’d rather not shop you, because I hate that bastard, but I will if you make me.”
I gave her my number. I mean, I wanted to kill her, but in London they notice things like bodies in the street. Especially if you’re careless enough to do it in broad daylight next to a cop shop. 

Quique is having a bad time. Back in Mexico his marriage has fallen apart and his wife has made him a laughing stock by cheating on him. Now he’s in London and finding himself out of his depth with a complex commercial deal. To make things worse, Natalia Truelove, a chef and pub manager, is blackmailing him. Quique is ready to commit murder and he’s pretty sure who his first victim will be.

The Vesper Series

“Action, shooting, special ops and something dark, that will not let you out in one piece.”

Magdalena Kozak’s incredible best-selling urban fantasy series is now available in English for the first time ever. To celebrate, book one, Nighter, is FREE!

Beneath the world that we know is a secret world, a world of violence and darkness: the world of vampires. From the shadows, the righteous Nighter clan make war on the vicious, soulless Renegades to protect humanity. Perhaps what the world needs is neither good nor evil, but somewhere in between…

Series: The Vesper
Author Name: Magdalena Kozak
Publisher: CK Printworks
Book Genre: Urban Fantasy
FREE DOWNLOAD
**NIGHTER – Book 1**
Life in the Special Forces can be too much for some people to bear. Yes, it is a life of action and adventure, but it’s also a life of constant fear and secrecy, where the risk of death waits around every corner. For other people, that life is their calling, and the surge of adrenaline is as addictive as any drug.

Vesper is one such addict, a young man ready to sacrifice everything to serve his country. He joins a secret unit of the International Security Agency, where he is given a new life, a new identity, and a new mission: control the renegade threat without letting the general public discover that it exists.

The renegades are not merely men fighting for a cause, though. They are vampires, vicious blood-drinkers who choose to live by their own violent code rather than following the rules of their more civilized brethren, the Nighters.

The renegades are growing at a dangerous rate, and developing ever more brutal methods to harvest the fresh human blood they crave. Vesper is faced with a difficult choice: as a human, he is not strong enough to stand against the renegades. Should he sacrifice everything and become a Nighter, in the name of the greater good?
Barnes & Noble: http://bit.ly/2Rbv5zP
**RENEGADE – Book 2**
Jerzy Arlecki was never the sort to believe in vampires, and he certainly never believed that there might be a special unit of vampires within the military, purely to protect humanity from the blood-thirsty renegades. Through an unfortunate twist of fate, he finds himself awakened to the night the hard way. He takes a vow to stand with the Nighters, on the side of the good and righteous, only to discover that it may be harder to keep his oath than he thought.

Meanwhile, Vesper finds himself wounded and helpless in the clutches of the renegades, abandoned by the Nighters. Life amidst the ranks of his former enemy is challenging, to say the least. To some, he is a traitor and a murderer, yet to others he is a symbol of hope, the unbeatable desperado who dared to assassinate the powerful Lord Ultor.

Rather than let him die of his wounds, the renegades save his life by forcing him to become the one thing he swore he would never be: a full-fledged vampire, dependent on human blood to survive.

With old friends plotting revenge and new friends who may yet become enemies again, Vesper must find some way to navigate the murky waters of his new life. Who can he trust? More importantly, where does the line between righteousness end, and evil begin?
Barnes & Noble: http://bit.ly/2A9bglC 
**NOBODY – Book 3**
In the wake of the disastrous events of the last book, there is no place left for Vesper amongst either the Nighters or the renegades. The rules that had once governed the vampire world have begun to collapse under the weight of a terrible new threat: Humanity has seen the truth.

The Vatican unleashes a terrible religious furor upon them, and the Nighters are helpless to fight back. Their own rules forbid them from killing humans. All they can do is try to save the renegades from their own fearsome predatory instincts, before it’s too late for all of them. The problem is, those who choose their own path through the night refuse to talk to the Nighters, and both are caught up in the desperate struggle to survive.

Even in the deepest pits of despair, drowning on a sea of hatred, the seeds of hope begin to sprout. The end is only the beginning. Perhaps there is something beyond what the eye can see. Perhaps… there is destiny?
Barnes & Noble: http://bit.ly/2FKOCGe
**INANITE – Book 4**
Sometimes, it’s the moment that you achieve your dream when the real trouble starts. Ever since the day Vesper became a Lord, he’s been forced to dodge an endless rain of troubles. It’s not as simple as merely finding a way to feed and pay his own Family, oh no. The real trouble is trying to find a way to co-operate with the other vampire lords, each with hundreds of years of experience and no patience for a bold young upstart with his own ideas of how things should be done.

Luckily for him, the world itself is crying out for the Inanité family, a neutral middle ground who are neither good nor evil. In a time of danger and uncertainty, the whole vampire community is looking to them for guidance. Rumors swirl that there are terrible enemies poised to attack all the vampire clans, armed with some kind of weapon that will poison the kindred bloodlines and wipe them out once and for all.

The final hand is about to be dealt, and nothing will ever be the same again.

When Lilah Murphy started serving drinks at the exclusive Platinum Club,
she never expected she would be on the menu.
Biotech billionaire Gavin Stanton had one taste of the new, curvy server
and his craving could never be satisfied until he had her fully. Completely.
Eternally.
Fate brought them together, but a centuries-old secret could tear them
apart, for the Stanton family holds a shifter legacy that no human has ever
threatened.
Until now.
Gavin Stanton is the billionaire CEO of a Boston biotech firm. He’s also
a werewolf, the son of a large, ancient family with roots in the British
aristocracy. His work is his life. But then he feels the Beat—an irresistible
urge to mate with Lilah, a beautiful human who inflames his passions like no
other—and he abandons everything he thought he knew in his need to claim her.
Lilah Murphy is broke and desperate. All she wants is a job to support
herself, her sister, and her ailing mother. The last thing she needs is to get
involved with a rich, powerful guy who would discard her after a few hot nights
together and get her fired at her new, high-paying job. But she, too, feels the
Beat. She hears him in her mind, feels him in her soul, and the urge to answer
the ancient call is undeniable. Is she strong enough to embrace his secrets—and
her own?
The Billionaire Shifter’s Curvy Match is the first in an all-new series
of hot (did we mention *hot*?) romances about the billionaire shifters and the
women they’re fated to love.

Excerpt
The sound
of screeching rubber on asphalt drowned out the rest of her words. They both
paused, expecting to hear cars colliding. Instead, there was eerie silence—and
then the plaintive cry of a wounded animal.
A dog.
They both
ran to the window. Outside, the usual neighborhood lowlifes loitered on their
grubby street, where the most vibrant business was a check-cashing place. And a
bar. Actually, a lot of bars.
And was
that a limo? What the hell was one of those doing here?
The dog’s
cries continued.
“Smoky!”
Lilah gasped, turning away from the window, her heart pounding. “That bastard
hit Smoky!”
Smoky was
the neighborhood stray. He should’ve been ill-tempered, given his bad luck to
live on the streets, but his was the friendliest face on the block, looking
happy to see you, always eager for a pat, his tail wagging.
The limo
might’ve killed the poor little guy. Taking three stairs at a time, Lilah flew
down the stairwell to the stained security door and out the rusty gate to the
sidewalk.
The usual
drug dealer was standing on the corner, interrupted from talking to whoever was
inside a parked silver Chevy. Under that car, only a few feet from him and
still whimpering, was a huddled mass of pale fur.
Smoky.
Jess was right
on her heels. “Oh, no.”
“We have to
help him.” Lilah glanced up and down the street, preparing to cross, her long
hair flying as she whipped her head back and forth to make sure it was safe.
Jess
grabbed her arm. “You can’t! That’s the dealer who stabbed somebody last year,
isn’t it?”
“Different
guy,” Lilah said, although it wasn’t. She strode into the street just as the
driver of the limo was getting out. She couldn’t leave Smoky to die in the
street with those scumbags.
Then she
saw the limo driver pull his arms back, hands on hips, revealing a
barely-concealed gun on a holster around his chest. The window in the back of
the limo remained up, and why shouldn’t it? Why would some rich dude want to
get dirty? Why would he care if he’d run over some poor homeless dog?
The tiny
scar above Lilah’s left eyebrow began to throb. It jolted her, making the scene
before her look shimmery. Unreal. She pressed her fingertips into the tiny
divot and hoped the throbbing would go away. The last thing she needed now was
a three-day blinding headache.
And she’d
run out of her meds. No money.
“What’s
wrong, Lilah?” Jess grabbed her elbow and pulled her out of the middle of the
street. She’d just frozen there, staring at the back windows of the limo.
Lilah could
hear Smoky’s whimpering and the city traffic, but it all came as background
noise through the throbbing in her head. It wasn’t quite pain. The pulsing felt
like it pierced her brain, a second heartbeat she couldn’t quite follow.
Her vision
was fine, and that meant it wasn’t a migraine. Then what was this?
And why did
it worsen when her eyes flickered toward the back windows of the limo?
“Let’s get
Smoky,” Lilah said, though her mouth felt like it was filled with cotton.
Jess had an
arm around her. “I’ll get him. You’re about to faint.”
“I’m fine.”
Lilah forced herself to move, shooting an icy glance at the neighborhood felon
before she squatted down to the car’s rear bumper.
“Lilah, you
look really pale,” Jess insisted, frowning. She looked so much like their mom
when she did that.
“Here,
puppy,” Lilah cooed, reaching out a hand. She knew the biggest danger was if
Smoky ran away again and hid where nobody could help him, so she grabbed him by
the scruff of his neck and pulled him as gently as she could out from under the
car. Luckily, Smoky was a small thing, barely fifteen pounds, and she got him
bundled up in her arms without having to drag him far.
He relaxed
in her arms, his shivering more from fear than any injury. Thank goodness.
But as soon
as she stood, the throbbing, pulsing pain returned. Her gaze was pulled to the
back window of the limo, now open. To the man sitting in the shadows.
Him. Her head felt like someone had
dropped a brick on it, her body filling with heat and lava.
It’s him.
What was
the matter with her? She had to get Smoky inside. She didn’t know anyone who
rode around in a limo, so why did she feel like she did?
Him.
It didn’t
matter. She had to get closer. She had to see him.
Holding
Smoky in her arms, Lilah took a step toward the limo, then another.
Jess
snagged her elbow. “Lilah, no! You can’t! That driver has a gun—”
Lilah was
beyond reason, the pounding turning into a word, a word that had no sound, no
form, no sense.
Him.
Him.
Him.
That voice.
It pounded like a hammer forging steel. She continued to advance on the shining
black limo, barely noticing when the driver climbed inside and slammed the
door. She was fearless in her uncontrollable need to see that face, to know he
was real.
You’re
real.
Jess was at
her heels. “Lilah, please—”
The limo
peeled out, its tires screeching as it drove past her only an arm’s-length
away. Two bright blue eyes, glittering with otherworldly sharpness, met hers
through the open window. Gold highlights tickled his hair, a honey brown that
curved up at the neck, a little too long to be all business, with waves she
wanted to sink her fingers into. A strong jaw, set firmly, and those wild,
seductive eyes… oh.
Oh my.
And then
the voice changed in an instant.
Mine.
Mine.
Mine.

“Derry” Stanton is an old-money playboy who sleeps his way through

too unbearably good.

When danger
lurks in the shadows…
Government
secrets are being sold and the newly sworn in President of the United States
already feels out of options. Without knowing the full scope of the scandal,
the president decides to turn to the one person he knows he can trust—former
FBI Agent, Elizabeth James. Her deep distrust of the system is rooted in her
unfair discharge from service. Now she sees a chance to restore her reputation
and send a message to those that would use their power to destroy others’
lives.
Elizabeth James is ordered to do whatever it takes to end a criminal
organization pulling the strings of the worlds’ governments to do their
bidding. She’s also been told that this is completely off the books. If caught,
the government will deny all knowledge of her and the mission. Elizabeth was
ready to go it alone until a man with a chip on his shoulder mysteriously helps
her when she’s under fire.

 

Dalton Cage
had led his small group of elite Air Force Pararescuemen into the most
dangerous parts of the world to rescue civilians and soldiers alike. He thought
his time spent evading enemy fire was over after he was booted for ignoring an
order he believed to be wrong. But enemy fire was nothing compared to the
dangers he faced when he was offered a chance at redemption. All he had to do
was provide back up to an undercover agent and he’d get a chance to rejoin his
pararescue team. Danger strikes early and often as Elizabeth and Dalton begin
their mission and find their hearts becoming involved. Now every decision could
cost them their freedom . . . or their lives.

Excerpt
Lizzy pulled the syringe from her purse as she strode toward the bathroom. She pulled the cover from the needle and placed it inside the small clutch she carried. She pushed open the door to the bathroom and stood waiting for Phylicia to come out of the stall. She heard her whispering into her phone that she wasn’t alone and couldn’t talk anymore before hanging up. She flushed the toilet, but both Lizzy and Phylicia knew there had been no reason to do so.
“Sorry, I just had so much champagne,” Phylicia said as she opened the door. She didn’t get to say another word as Lizzy smirked and jabbed a needle right into her neck.
“What the hell? Elizabeth?” Phylicia muttered right before her eyes drooped closed and she crashed to the floor. Lizzy didn’t feel an ounce of remorse as Phylicia’s head smacked against the marble tiled floor.
Lizzy grabbed her by the arms and pulled. Not only did the marble flooring look amazing, it also provided amazingly little resistance for dragging a body. Lizzy pulled Phylicia out of the bathroom and down the hall before using her bottom to push open the emergency exit. True to Alex’s word, no alarms went off.
Alex let out a low whistle. “I mean, I knew you could do it. I just didn’t think you actually would.”
Lizzy grunted as she hefted Phylicia’s body into the van. “Get her phone and disable it. I don’t want anyone to know where we’re going.”
Alex leaped into the back of the van as Lizzy took over the driver’s seat. As she was putting the van into Drive, she heard the sound of tires squealing as a car took the corner too fast down the alleyway. Lizzy looked into the mirrors and saw a standard black town car racing down the alley behind her.
Lizzy didn’t say a word as she slammed the pedal to the floor. Shots pinged off the back of the van as she bounced down the narrow alley, past cardboard boxes and overflowing dumpsters.
“How did they find us?” Lizzy demanded.
Alex was frantically going through Phylicia’s purse. “I disabled the GPS on the phone,” he muttered as he ripped apart the lining. “There’s nothing!”
Phylicia’s dress sparkled in the rear view mirror, the thousands of sequins hand sewn onto the bodice. “The dress. Check her dress!”
“Why couldn’t she be a man?” Alex groaned as he ran a detector over every sequin. “Got it! I’ll disable it then see what kind of information I can get from it.”
Alex cursed as Lizzy hit a pothole and the van bounced into the air. The car was gaining, but the exit to the alley was close. Twenty feet from the exit, a man in a black suit with a matching black M-16 rifle stepped from around the side of the hotel. He raised the gun and bullets ripped through the glass. Alex screamed five octaves higher than a soprano and plastered himself to the floor. Lizzy ducked and kept her foot on the gas. She’d run the bastard over if she had to. All guilt and worry about crossing the invisible line had vanished the second she saw the evidence her father had collected. She’d been fired and her reputation destroyed because of the bitch in the back of the van, and there was no way Lizzy was going to let her go without a fight.
Dalton tried to open the doors to the restrooms, but they were locked. He looked around and remembered the stairs in front of the ballroom. He’d lost his target, and by the way four men in suits had not so subtly fled the room moments ago, he knew his target was in trouble. Smiling, he nodded to Sebastian Abel, pretending to know him and others in the crowd as he cut his way toward the stairs.
As soon as he was clear of the ballroom, he shoved open the door and started to race up the twelve flights of stairs. His training kept him in shape and he wasn’t even breathing hard when he burst onto the roof. His gun was already in hand as he scanned the roof for other occupants. The sound of tires squealing told him he was right—his target was in trouble.
His black dress shoes crunched on the concrete roof as he raced to the edge and looked over the small two-foot wall and into the alley. At the far end, a van was flooring it as a town car slid into the alley. Straight below him he saw only the tip of an M-16 barrel.
Dalton scanned the rooftop and saw the fire escape at the far end of the roof. He shoved his gun back into the holster as he sprinted toward the narrow metal fire escape ladder. He swung his leg over the side of the short wall and put the balls of his feet on the metal handrails so he could slide down the side of the building.
Eight feet from the bottom, he dropped to the ground while simultaneously pulling his weapon. People were screaming and running as they saw him along with the man now firing the M-16 at the van. Dalton didn’t break stride as he ran straight toward the man and calmly pulled the trigger. It only took one shot. The back of the man’s head exploded as the body fell forward. The van appeared and didn’t slow as it ran over the body before turning right and heading straight toward Dalton.
Dalton already had his gun holstered as he straightened his tuxedo jacket and gave a jaunty salute to the driver. Her bright red lips were opened in surprise, but she didn’t slow down as she passed him. But by the look she gave him, Dalton knew she had taken in his height, weight, and appearance. He smiled as he thought of her wondering who the hell he was. She had no idea that he was her very own guardian angel.
“Who the hell was that?” Lizzy yelled as she raced through downtown D.C., trying to lose the car that had followed her out of the alley.
“Who was who?” Alex asked as he worked on the tracking device he’d pulled off the dress. “Whoever was monitoring this had to be at the event,” he muttered.
“The man who just shot the guy shooting at us. He smiled at me and then gave me a condescending salute. Hang on,” Lizzy said as she took a corner so fast the van tilted onto two wheels. When it slammed down, she filed away the facts on the man who had helped her out. He would be hard to forget with those dark eyes that looked right at her and that square jaw covered in neatly trimmed stubble. Not to mention he could fill out a tux unlike any man she had ever seen.
“Condescending is fine if he’s shooting the bad people,” Alex called as he worked on his computer. “Got it! I backtracked the GPS to the car behind us. They’re the ones monitoring her. The only question is if she knows about it or not. But it’s taken care of now. It’s disabled.”
“Then it’s time to lose them,” Lizzy said with a smile. This was turning out to be rather fun.

Alone and on the run, Valeria finds herself being hunted by some of the most

before it’s too late. If the shadow group pulls off their next move, then there

the battle of their lives. This woman is unlike anything he’s experience before
and it doesn’t take long for the sparks to fly . . . as well as bullets. With

Prepare to die for her?
Double-check.
Larissa is the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen.
She’s the rising star of the Pussycat Angels, the hottest burlesque show in the French Quarter.

Her body is intoxicating, our love overwhelming.
Cat eyes and blood red lips.
Sizzling fingers on white-hot skin.

A sinister shadow lurking under the lights.
I would do anything to save her…
He would do anything to see me dead.

 


 

Strangers on a train; names on a list.

It’s a simple job.
In and out, instant karma.
Then he appears to derail everything.

He’s the boy I haven’t seen in five years.
He’s the boy who wanted to be my hero, who I thought died fighting the demons.

Only he didn’t die.
He survived, and now he’s a man.
Worse, he’s a cop.

He’s gorgeous and strong, and the best sex I’ve ever had.
He’s my dream come true…

But this train has left the station, and there’s no turning back.
Payback arrives at sundown.

(Sundown is a novella that should be read between Under the Lights and Under the Stars.)

I’m not a hero. I’m a survivor.
I had one way out, and I took it.
Now all I want is peace,
A place to pick up the pieces and start over.

But she wants justice.
Names on a list, faces in the crowd.
I vowed to help her, but it’s taking us back to the demons.
Until he appeared.

I thought he died in the fight.
I was wrong.
He’s here.
Stronger, more powerful… Sexier.

And dangerous.

The boy I loved is now the one man we have to fear most.
When he tried to save me, he had no power.

Now everything has changed, and he’ll never stop until I’m his.
