I didn’t realize she would send Cole to watch over me. Or that he would carry me out of my trailer when he saw how bad it really was. Who was he to tell me where I could live or how I managed my own business? I mean, he might be my kid’s uncle, but I’d been on my own for a long time. I didn’t need his help. And I really didn’t need the confusion that rushed through me whenever he stood too close. BOOK 2 I do the best I can. I have to make a living, right? And this industry…it pays very well. And when you’re on the streets with a kid to take care of, you do what you have to do. But I took pains to hide my face in the movies I acted in. For seven years, I’d kept my identity anonymous. But someone figured it out and now I have this big, silent man following me around, demanding I do everything he says. BOOK 3 I didn’t want him in my life, didn’t want him anywhere near me, but on the worst day of my life he comes walking down the street, a gun in his hand, and throws me over his shoulder like some sort of Neanderthal taking possession of what was his. But I wasn’t his anymore. That ended when I caught him kissing my sister in one of the most romantic cities in the world. My sister, who’d just been killed saying his name. How did I know he didn’t kill her? How did I know that he didn’t intend to kill me? BOOK 4 I’m a nurse. I help people. I’ve done it all my life, even before I embraced my profession. So when I heard Blake Zimmerman explaining how he and his wife were desperate to have a baby, I couldn’t help but offer myself. I’d never thought about being a surrogate before, but I wanted to help and it wasn’t like I had any romantic prospects at that moment. Hell, I hadn’t had romantic prospects in a long time. And Blake…he was over the moon at the suggestion. So was his wife, Annie. But then, almost the moment we signed the contract, someone tried to run me down. BOOK 5 We fought like cats and dogs. He made fun of my mode of dress and I…well, I usually just blushed and hit his arm, telling him to shut up. But I hated it, hated feeling like I was in high school again. So when Megan, my best friend and my boss, told me that we were to go on an undercover operation together, pretend to be a young, married couple, I thought she was insane. Or trying to play match maker. BOOK 6 Megan's story. That's all I'm saying ;)

Gray Wolf Security, Texas: The Complete Series


Glenna Sinclair - 2016
     Enjoy the complete Volume 2 of the Gray Wolf Security series. Romance, Suspense, Mystery and a touch of Comedy. 6 Books. No Cliffhangers. More than 1,000 pages :) Book 1: Defending Tierney I never wanted to be anything other than a defense attorney. I never imagined following in my father’s footsteps would would mean finding death threats stuck under my car’s windshield. But it did lead me to Gray Wolf Security and the hot, sexy, former-Navy SEAL who would turn my world upside down and make me see my profession in a new light. Book 2: Forgiving Bailey I saw him standing off to one side at the funeral, but when I looked again, he was gone. I told myself it was just wishful thinking. Ingram didn’t want anything to do with me. After what I’d done on the witness stand during his court martial…he spent five years in the brig because of me. He would never come looking for me again. Book 3: Taming Knox I saw him sitting at a corner of the bar. He had these penetrating gray eyes that were just so intriguing. I walked over and made small talk, aware that he was looking at my ass, my thighs. He was a leg man. I could work with that. But then he mentioned a wife and I was off that stool faster than he could say wedding ring. He found me a few minutes later, whispering about his dead wife and I was just drunk enough to find it romantic. One night. That’s all it was supposed to be. Book 4: Controlling Brooks I didn’t need a babysitter. It was my husband’s idea to hire Gray Wolf Security, his idea to assign Elliott Wallace to watch over me while he was out of town. I’d rather be on my own, but that was the problem, wasn’t it? My husband couldn’t stand the idea that I might talk to someone outside of his control, that I might have a mind of my own. But I did and I wasn’t about to sit still and let Elliott tell me what to do and how to do it. Never mind that Elliott was probably the hottest guy I’d ever met or that my marriage, a convenient arrangement, was nearing its end. Book 5: Chasing Pepper I went to my sister because I had nowhere else to go. And it was incredibly convenient that her husband happened to own Gray Wolf Security and they were looking into a rash of robberies that I happened to have intimate knowledge about. I could keep tabs on the investigation, could know before anyone else if they were close to a suspect. All I had to do was have a beer or two with the handsome former Marine who was assigned the case. Book 6: Freeing Kipling My family was murdered while I was overseas and I had no control. Then the killer confessed and I still had no control. And now he’s dead—not by my hand as much as I desired it—and I’ve lost it all. But then his sister shows up at the front gate screaming that she has evidence that he is innocent. And suddenly there’s a chance at control, a chance to find the people who committed this heinous act and make them pay once and for all. Revenge had never been so sweet. And when it comes with a beautiful woman attached, a woman who’s been a thorn in my side for ten years, but so beautiful and making me remember that I was once a man, a viral man who felt things, a passionate man who knew pleasure, how could I resist?

But Pete's not the quiet guy he appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship.

And can Pete reclaim the life he once had without tearing apart his family? *** IN SEASIDE SUNSETS...

27 Truths: Ava's Story


M.J. Fields - 2016
     Ava Links was raised seeing the different sides of love. The beautiful and the broken. Through it all, she knows the journey she is taking will lead her to the man she is destined to be with. The man she has always loved, Luke Lane. But as we know, there are no guarantees in this world, no promises that can not be broken, and no way you will know what tomorrow brings. **** A note for the readers**** At present time, this story is slated as a duet. In the writing process things change. This story has been begging to be told for two years. Although not necessary, The Love series, The Wrapped series, and The Burning Souls series can be read before The Truth About Love. This is not Steel or Caldwell, but at the core is a strong family just the same. It does not promise an HEA or laughs. This is heart, heat, and will evoke feelings that are not always pleasant. To the lovers of my first works. You have been patient. You have been... persistent. The wait is almost over. After you read this, please remember you asked for it. Love you anyways.

The Temptation Trap, Complete Series


Alexa Wilder - 2016
    For the first time you can read all five books in one volume! Emma Wright is in over her head. Three months ago her life was perfect: amazing job, shiny new MBA, great friends. When her job turns into a nightmare overnight, Emma feels like her life is going down the tubes. The only bright spot is her hot new boyfriend. He’s the man of her wildest dreams; sexy, smart, sweet, and a master of her body between the sheets. He can't seem to get enough of her full-figured curves, so it's too bad she's starting to think he’s keeping dangerous secrets.   Axel Sinclair likes control. At work, at home, in bed. He gets what he wants, and he never loses. Not until he meets Emma Wright, and she turns his well-ordered life upside down. Emma was supposed to be a job - getting his hands all over her luscious body was only a bonus. Before he knows it, Axel is in deep.  Axel is sure Emma’s guilty as hell. Can he do his job and bring her down? Or will he follow his heart and claim her for his own? EXCERPT: Emma Wright was becoming a problem. She was supposed to be a job. An easy job. Get close to her, find evidence that she was selling confidential data to a competitor. Get paid a ton of money. How hard could it be? She was the head of Human Resources at a shipping company, not Mata Hari. This kind of thing was the bread and butter of Sinclair Security. I figured I’d take the meeting and pass the case to one of my guys.
Then I got a good look at Emma Wright.
Fiery red hair, creamy skin, abundant curves, and clear blue eyes with a wicked glint. She was irresistible. Luscious, soft, and more than a handful in all the right places. The moment I saw her picture, I knew I’d be handling her myself.
Sleeping with the suspect wasn’t usually my MO, but in this case, I was prepared to make an exception. Normally, my approach was to get the evidence, give it to the client, close the case, and cash the check. Not with Emma.
Getting her into bed wasn’t the hard part. Neither was pretending to be her lover. But Emma was tricky. She was smart. Funny. Gorgeous. And surprisingly kinky. Deliciously kinky. I’d never admit it, but it’s possible I was taking my time on the case just to have an excuse to keep her in my bed.

Specifically, about the experience where he lost his leg. And that’s how Abrahem meets Matt, a young boy who is also missing a leg, along with a father figure. Through Matt, Abrahem meets the boy’s beautiful sister, Mindy. She immediately sparks something in him he never thought he would feel, after all he saw in Afghanistan numbed him to life. But Mindy has her own demons she’s fighting, demons that threaten to tear her and Matt away from the fragile new life they’ve just barely begun to establish. BLAKE Blake has remained alone and aloof, holding everyone at a distance to avoid revisiting deeply embedded pain. Then Roxy drives into his life one cold, strange night, and Blake’s world is upended as he’s drawn into her own personal tragedy and sets out to help her, as he has so many others. Only this time, everything is different. In the end, maybe this one case will be what changes Blake’s life for the better, if he lets Roxy into his heart. And if he can keep her alive long enough to learn to trust again …

Lexie Ray - 2016
     Enjoy all 5 Corbin brothers books in this discounted bundle. Currently FREE with the Kindle Unlimited Program or $0.99. All full length books. No cliffies! HUNTER People weren't supposed to live through what I lived through, and most of the time, I wish I hadn't. I came away from military service fucked up beyond all recognition, slinking back to my family's cattle ranch in Texas to heal, my tail between my legs. Well, leg. Singular. My brothers hire Hadley Parsons to put me back together again, and she's the best of the best, tough and beautiful to boot. She won't take an ounce of bullshit and she's made it her mission to see me through my recovery one way or another. With her unconventional methods, I find myself looking forward to seeing her every single day. AVERY Our ranch has been in our family for generations and generations, and it's said that ranching runs in Corbin blood. If that's true, though, I must not be a Corbin. I've always dreamed of doing something different — anything different — from the ranch, but blood is blood, and I can't see my brothers' dream go under. But when the ranch faces a real threat, I don't have a choice but to do the unthinkable — enter into a marriage of economics with Paisley Summers, daughter of a wealthy rancher one property over. I've known Paisley since elementary school, but that doesn't mean I like her. Can we learn to love each other in this new arrangement, or will this marriage tear our families and our ranches apart? EMMETT I don't know what it's going to take for me to get noticed in this family, but I'm pretty sure it won't take very long to get my brothers' attention associating with one of the most notorious women in town. Peyton Crow is best known for granting instant gratification to lonely souls in town, but she's a lot more than she seems. Once you get past all the sex and conflict, she has a heart of gold and a love and understanding for horses that rivals my own. But will my brothers finally take my ideas for expanding the family ranch seriously? And will Peyton ever see that she's worth much more than anyone gives her credit for? TUCKER I have secrets in my past that need to stay there — things I don't talk about. But when one of those nightmares comes back to life, there's nothing I can do to hide those terrible things from my brothers any longer. Amelia Banks makes frequent appearances in my nightmares, both of us survivors of a sadistic serial killer from my time away from the ranch as a cop. I thought that was all over and done with — it had almost killed me and driven me crazy. But when Amelia shows up on the ranch, terrified that the killer is hunting her once more, I start to realize that some things are never really other. CHANCE I've been taking care of the ranch and my brothers ever since our parents died, and have watched my brothers pair off with women who love them one by one. I'd like to experience some of that love, too, but I only have eyes for one woman — who happens to be our housekeeper. It would be too complicated. There would be too many factors against us being together. But I can't get her off of my mind — even as our ranch suffers a brutal attack that might end the family business for us Corbins once and for all.
