Never trust a man who answers the door wearing nothing more than a pair of low-cut jeans and a panty-melting smirk.
That should’ve been my first sign.
I write about guys like him for a living—sexy and charming, yet reluctant to get into a serious relationship. His body is the ultimate temptation, but his condescending personality makes him a classic bad boy.
And I want nothing to do with that.
Writing romance novels comes with its perks—traveling, meeting new people, creating characters from the voices in my head—but Ethan Rochester enters my life and rearranges my preconceived notions about writing what inspires you.
Meeting him was fate, but falling for him was inevitable.
And forgetting him will be impossible.
Falling for the Bad Boy // Available now
Never trust a man who gets paid to take off his clothes for a living and then uses it as a pick-up line to get girls in bed with him.
That should’ve been enough for me to call in sick that day.
I’ve worked with male cover models like him before and they’re all the same—smooth-talking, sexy as sin, egotistical know-it-alls who think they’re God’s gift to women—all traits I know to steer clear of.
Assisting authors comes with many perks—reading on the job, using my organizing skills on a daily basis, drinking coffee by the gallons—but Maverick Kingston barges into my life and demands more than I can handle.
When we’re forced to road trip across the country together, he pushes every boundary I have and rearranges my thoughts on playing it safe. And when he “accidentally” drops his towel, he makes it very clear what he’s offering and proves he’s packing more than abs of steel under his clothes.
Working with him was brutal, but falling for him was unexpected.
And playing by the rules will be impossible.
Falling for the Playboy preorder // Coming Nov. 15th
Never trust a man who wears nothing more than a cowboy hat and ripped jeans who asks if you’d like to save a horse and ride a . . . well, you get the picture.
That should’ve been enough for me to walk away.
I’ve been warned on several occasions about southern men—with their sexy accents, charming manners, and the ability to easily get any woman in bed—which is something I’ll be avoiding.
Being a professional photographer has many perks—traveling around the world, calling all the shots, and working with subject matter that isn’t bad to look at—but Colton Langston with his washboard abs and baby blue eyes, could care less about my current project. He’s trouble, I know it, and he’s determined to make me work for every single photo. When I’m forced into riding lessons, I get way more than I ever bargained for, and by the time my trip is over, I’m in too deep.
Being with him was thrilling, but falling for him was unpredictable.
And ignoring him will be impossible.
Falling for the Cowboy preorder // Coming Jan. 31st

Cici Gurule wants to pretend her dream is nothing more than a meaningless nightmare. But the bruised and bloodied woman looked alarmingly like her.

It’s been over three decades since James and Sophie North’s parents saw their family savagely torn apart by the cruel actions of one malicious man. Both of them lost a vital piece of themselves that night so long ago. Pete was left a shadow of his former self, having failed to protect his only love. Miranda persevered for the sake of their children, but her grief remained.
Now, more than thirty years later, the child cruelly ripped from their arms has suddenly resurfaced—and all the love in the world may not be enough to reconcile their tragic pasts. For even as Pete and Miranda are still reeling from the knowledge of their newfound son, the powerful malevolence of their old enemy is already reaching out to destroy them again…this time from beyond the grave.
For the final time surrender to control.
“I knew this would be how you looked. Innocent and pure with a body built for sin.”
He backed her up further, so she fell onto the bed with her legs parted and inner most parts on display for him.
“Mine.” The word escaped from his mouth and seemed to come as shock to both of them.
“Yours,” she repeated, stroke her finger down the length of her slit to demonstrate just how much she was his.
Pete undid the buckle of his jeans and slid them down his muscled thighs. She already knew he liked to go to the gym a couple of nights a week. He’d told her he was teased for being a wimpy kid at one stage, but then he’d found the gym and hadn’t looked back. The muscle certainly looked good on him. His boxer briefs followed suit, and she gasped when his erect cock sprung free from its confines. She’d not seen one this close before. Ok, the girls at her school had shared pictures from porn magazines, but she’d never had a real-life one in front of her. It was strange but stunning at the same time. Its rigidity caused it to reach up to his belly button. In fact, his length and width was more impressive than some of the photos she’d seen. She suddenly felt a little self-conscious. This would be her first time, and something that size would have to hurt.
Pete came over to the bed, settling between her thighs with his mouth close to the cleft between her legs, his tongue came out and licked up her slit. Her head fell back as her nerve ends danced with delight. His tongue swirled around her clit, applying pressure and alternating between fast and slow. It drove her to the edge of climax, and then he slowed it all down again. He pushed a finger inside of her, following it with another. Both stretched out to ready her for his cock. Her head started to swim with all the sensations flooding her body: surreal and sensual, crazy and vibrant, all at the same time. She was swimming and drowning in happiness.
Pete pulled away from her and turned back to his trousers.
“What is it?”
“I’m on the pill. Bad periods when I was younger.”
“I’ve never been so happy to hear that.”
Pete came back over to her and settled his cock at her entrance. Miranda took in a deep breath and waited for him to push inside her. Instead of wondering what it was going to feel like for her, she imagined what he would be aware of in the intimacy of the coupling. But then a thought popped into her head: this was her first time but was it his?
“Wait.” She stopped him as his hips drew back. He groaned but halted.
“What? Are you ok?” His eyebrows furrowed together, and he searched her face for signs of distress. She composed her features, though, to make sure none of her concerns showed at the thought she was given him her greatest gift, and this might not be his first time.
“Are you a virgin?” she blurted out.
“What?” he questioned with dumbfounded shock.
“Have you done this before?”
“I’m clean,” he told her, and she recollected a disease her teachers had taught her about in sex education, which you caught during intercourse.
“That’s not what I meant. You know, this is my first time. We’ve discussed it before, but I never asked. Will this be yours?”
Pete shut his eyes.
“As much as I want to play the big man and say I’m a pro at this sex thing, it’s my first time also. I’m currently praying and pleading in my head that the second I put my cock inside you I’m able to make you feel something. I’m reciting banking terms in my head just to stop from coming too soon.”
She leaned forward and brought his lips against hers.
“Account holder…compound interest…debt-to-income ratio,” she teased.
“Fuck! When you say it, it’s the sexiest thing I’ve ever heard.”
Pete looked down at his cock sitting just outside her entrance and then back at her. He was asking for permission.
“Yes,” she whispered, and he thrust slowly in until he was fully seated at his hilt.

All she wants is a peaceful life. To live on her brother’s quiet Wisconsin farm and write romance novels. But one night, fate intervenes.
When ex-reporter Cassie Martin overhears a heated argument between two men, her curiosity moves into high gear. And when one of them mentions a mysterious disappearance and “manipulating time,” she has to have answers.
Aaron Reegan is the head of security at a secret facility in the Wisconsin countryside. When he happens to meet local writer Cassie Martin, sparks fly, as they realize they share dark steamy tastes. He never once questions her innocence or her motives.
Until the moment he realizes he’s been betrayed.
A chance meeting… a technology that makes the Manhattan Project look tame… and suddenly Aaron is chasing Cassie back to fourteenth century France. To save her? Aaron had thought he’d met the woman he was going to spend the rest of his life with. But now, his only choice is to kill her.
“Outlander” meets “Fifty Shades of Gray,” Cassie’s Temptation is the first book in Time Bridge series. If you love steamy romance, time travel adventure, a smart-as-a whip heroine, and the sexiest hero to step out of the pages of a book in a long while, don’t miss “Cassie.” Mature readers comfortable with darker themes only please.
The voice of Sam Winslow, the Pierce City Project’s head technician, came into Aaron’s ear, gravelly with stress. “No change here.”
“Has anyone tried to reopen the link?”
“No, Aaron. They can’t. I guess I didn’t say it clearly enough before. They don’t have a key. They went through without an anchor or a key. And there was no technician in the control room to close the bridge in the first place.”
How could they not… Aaron heard the words but couldn’t get his brain to grasp it. This didn’t make any sense. Why would anyone go through the bridge without an anchor or a key? They were the two essential pieces of technology which made the whole thing work. The anchor fixed the time bridge to a specific location in time, and the key enabled the anchor to ‘call’ back to the present and allowed the technicians to reopen the bridge. Without those items, return was impossible.
Sam continued, “I don’t know what to tell you. Somehow someone managed to clone your key card, and they came through the back gate and into the facility with it. I have no idea who or how.”
Aaron interrupted. No use sugarcoating it. “I know her.”
“You know the woman in the picture?” Same could not keep the astonishment out of his voice.
“Yeah. She’s… the woman I’ve been seeing. And… hold on.” Angling his body in the seat, Aaron grabbed his briefcase, and fished his ID badge out. Flipping it over he verified what he already suspected: his key card was gone from the plastic sleeve. “She didn’t clone a key card. She stole mine out of my ID badge. She knew I was leaving from the house yesterday morning to go straight to the airport and she figured I wouldn’t miss it.”
“Yeah. Oh shit.” Aaron kept his voice steady with effort. Had it really been less than forty-eight hours since he’d climbed out of his bed and left her sleepy and sore from his love making? Love making, hell. He’d screwed her brains out for six hours straight, telling her in no uncertain terms that it was his goal to leave her so sore she couldn’t walk. She had rope burns on her wrists and her nipples had been teased to raw. He’d loved it and she’d loved it and… and… apparently while he’d been dozing between sessions, she’d gone into his bureau and into his wallet.
Hmmm… had she done it after she’d given him a blowjob? Or maybe it was before he’d brought her to a screaming climax with his mouth and the little vibrator. Yeah, he’d have to think about just when she’d fit stealing his key card into that schedule.
Aaron took a deep breath. There was a good reason why he’d not gotten seriously involved with anyone for ten years. How in God’s name had he forgotten that over the last month?

It might be the biggest mistake of my life.
This time he’s playing for keeps…
