This is it, my chance, my big break, my first tour. I knew when I was signed to White Picket Fence Records that my life was going to change. I wanted it. I craved it. Finally getting the chance to make it into a career is almost everything I’ve ever wanted.
Music and Leighla. Those are the two things that kept me going through the hard times. Leighla has been the light in my darkness since the moment she was born, even as the relationship with her mother crumbled around me. She made her choices; her daughter and I weren’t it.
I can’t leave my daughter behind as I go on tour, I’d never survive that long without her sweetness and smiles. Melody is a godsend and is there for Leighla when I can’t be. She’s on tour to do a job, but when I look at Melody, all I want is to give her pleasure. It’s a horrible idea and could cost me everything. I’ll risk it. She’s mine and by the end of the tour I’m going to make sure she knows it.
I need this job. I need my internship to turn into a career that I’m proud of. I have one shot to make myself indispensable to the label. I will make sure Leighla is given the care she needs so that Carter can go out on stage knowing that she’s safe and happy. Leighla loves her Daddy, and I can understand why Carter doesn’t want to be away from his adorable little girl.
There’s one big, huge, gigantic, momentous problem with my job. Carter is the sexiest man I’ve ever met and when he melts for his daughter, I find myself doing the same…but for him. I try to ignore it, but every look he gives me makes it harder to stay professional. Every touch lights me up and makes me want to sing.
I can’t let these feelings get in the way of my duties. Falling in love with the father-daughter duo isn’t part of my job description. I could lose everything I’ve worked for, but maybe I could gain so much more than a paycheck.
*Carter appears in Following His North Star (Suburban Outcasts Book 4)
When James, one of the brothers behind J&J Construction, hired me as a receptionist I thought my luck was turning around. I should have asked more questions about the other J because where James has an easy smile and rolls with things, Jaxson is rigid and doesn’t know the definition of coloring outside the lines. I don’t think Jaxson likes me very much because I always thought those lines were more suggestions than boundaries.
It would be okay if Jaxson wasn’t the sexiest man I’ve ever laid eyes on. I have become a walking, talking cliché complete with a boss who makes me swoon and lose all my mental faculties. I can’t seem to stop making a fool of myself in front of him, somehow becoming an uncoordinated newborn giraffe as soon as I get a whiff of him.
I don’t think I can keep doing this. It’s embarrassing. I’ve decided, for Boss’s Day I’m going to give Jaxson the only present I’m sure he wants: my resignation.
I don’t know what the James was thinking when he hired Autumn because everything about her screams unorganized distraction. Maybe the distraction part is only a problem I have because I can’t seem to keep my eyes or mind off her. The whole thing grates on my last nerve. I knew I shouldn’t have taken a few vacation days. Somehow, he found the one candidate destined to turn me inside out and turn me on like no one else.
The more I’m around her, the longer she works for me at J&J Construction, the harder it is for me to keep myself in check. I need order, I understand it, but she’s come in and messed everything up, making me want to throw all the rules and my regulated life out the window. I’m not sure when or how, but I’m finding the chaos she brings to my life and business endearing instead of annoying.
She got under my skin. She might think I want her to leave so I can find order again, but she’s wrong. She shook me up, reminded me there’s more to life and I’m not letting her go. I’m going to make her mine.
It is a standalone, but J&J Construction appears in Less Than Strangers (Stranger Shoot Book 6) and exists within my Denver Family world.
I’m used to making good first impressions because I get better tips when I do. Somehow, when I meet a firecracker of a woman who wants the same angel costume I have my hands on, it’s obvious how much she dislikes me.
I don’t care because I’m going to get the costume for my coworker. I made a promise and I’m going to keep it by any means necessary. Only, now I can’t get Remi out of my mind. A Halloween party might do the trick. I’m going to take full advantage of having the night off from bartending at The Mile High.
I wasn’t expecting to see Remi at the party, but there she is in all her angelic glory. I want her, but there’s nothing angelic about how she feels about me. It’s all fire and brimstone in her glares. I don’t know how I’m going to pull it off, but I’m going to make her mine. I might need a little help and I think I know who to ask.
They say the devil you know is better than the one you don’t. I don’t know if it’s true, but when I meet Kevin, he is the devil I never want to see again. All I wanted was to get a costume for the Halloween party at Suburban Outcast’s mansion, but I walk out of the store empty handed. All because of Kevin.
I figure I’ll never see him again, even though with one look he had me wanting things I shouldn’t even think about. It doesn’t matter because I can’t have him. So why does it feel like he’s haunting me? A wild night at a Halloween party is just what I need.
It’s no treat when I see him again at the party and I feel the way his dark eyes follow me all night. I won’t let him bring down my night. Just when I think I’ve gotten him out of my head, I’m tricked. I should have known my glares wouldn’t be enough to deter him.
It is a standalone but is related to my 3 Denver Family series (Banks Ink., Suburban Outcasts and Higgins Security). Meet Kevin in Forever His Family (Higgins Security Book 4).
I’ve explored a lot within the walls of Club Sin, but it hasn’t been quite right. I’ve found pleasure, but I’m still searching for what or who makes my body come alive like it never has before. It’s a place where no one knows more than I want them to, and I feel free.
I wasn’t expecting to walk in one night to find three men who I haven’t seen in ten years. I know I’ve changed since they saw me last and, in some ways, they have too. Maybe I haven’t changed enough because the moment I see them again, I know they’re the only ones who can give me what I want, what I need.
My brother, Landon, is the reason I knew them way back when. Then they all went off to serve our country while I grew up. Now they’re back and working for Landon at Sullivan Protections. With the enemies Landon’s made, he’s the reason I could be in danger.
When Owen, Barrett and Colt are assigned to protect me, how far will it go? Will they keep me safe? Will they show me a new way to play, a new fantasy I didn’t even know I had? How long will it last? Once they sink their teeth into me, will I ever be able to walk away again?
Ella thaws the ice around my heart. I’ll make sure she stays safe because she’s ours. Nothing is going to stop me, us. Not even Landon, even if he is our oldest friend. She makes me warm when I’ve been cold for far too long. Her skin begs for my mark.
We’ve been trained. Our skills have been honed. We’ve been made into soldiers, but none of us saw Ella coming. By the time we make eye contact the first night we visit Club Sin, it’s too late. We never stood a chance. I can see it in the way Colt melts for her and the way Barrett’s walls crumble.
Protecting her was never in question. It took only a second and she became our prey, but she doesn’t run. She wants to be caught. I bet she tastes delicious.

On the fifth day of Christmas...he has rings in all the right places.
After years of traveling for my blog, seeing more of the world than I ever thought I would, there’s something tugging me home for more than just the holidays. I have no idea what it is, other than some sort of delayed homesickness, until I meet Levi Michaels.
I’ve been talking to him via text and email about a custom motorcycle for my brother, but I had no idea I’d be meeting the sexiest guy ever when I go to pick it up. Talk about bad boy biker vibes. He’s got a beard I want rubbed all over my body even if he is a grinch. When we meet, I swear I hear carolers singing, but something makes him go colder than the North Pole.
Maybe he’s not a reason to stay. Maybe he’s a reason to keep traveling.
Anyone who tells you Christmas is the best time of the year is a liar and should be watched with great suspicion. It’s true. How can the big man in red even be trusted? Delivering gifts around the world reeks of conman.
When I meet Rowan Peters, I can feel a little bit of holiday cheer filter in for the first time in years. She’s a Christmas miracle if I’ve ever seen one, all sinful curves I want to lean into. Then I find out the motorcycle I’ve been working on for her is really for a man. It must be her husband. Somehow the lights, even the twinkly ones, dim with the knowledge that she’ll never be mine.
When I’m set straight, the only thing to do is go after my woman and show her one of my golden rings is just for her.

Pine-ing for the perfect holiday romance? It’s love at frost sight with The 12 Days of Kissmas! A dozen standalone holiday romances so steamy they’re sure to melt that winter chill. From dashing doctors to dirty-talking mountain men, staying off the naughty list just got a whole lot harder.
The holiday season is always full of good cheer, togetherness, and unity. I usually love spending time with my family, whether it’s Christmas, Kwanzaa, or New Year’s. I got through Christmas unscathed, but now my mother has decided, in the name of unity, to set me up with an old flame.
It’s not a relationship I want rekindled. I know what is buried underneath the ash and it isn’t pretty.
Walking into Fern’s shop, hoping to soften my mother’s determination, I wasn’t expecting to find exactly what I’ve been looking for. Fern might think her only purpose is to be a buffer for my ex, but I’ll show her I want her in my life longer than one night.
I’ll show her this is the start of forever. By the seventh night of Kwanzaa she’ll be mine.
I love helping people find the perfect flowers to convey whatever is in their hearts. An apology. A declaration of love. Grief.
When Darren walks into my shop to get some flowers for his mom for Kwanzaa, I thought it would be just another transaction, just another bouquet. When he needs more from me than the perfect bloom, I’m more than willing to step in and be the girl on his arm for dinner. A night of good food and family won’t be a hardship as long as I can ignore the pang of wanting it to be more.
His ex hates me on sight and his mother isn’t much better. The only bright spots are his sister, who has her own guest for dinner, and his grandmother, who has a wicked sense of humor and all-seeing eyes. If I get through dinner, I promise to stay in my shop where I belong. I’ll keep my good deeds to fulfilling other people’s flower needs and nothing more.
There’s a purpose in Darren’s eyes I’m not sure how to interpret. With every look and every touch, I find myself hoping for more than the seven nights of Kwanzaa. Could he want more too?

The moment I see Willow I know she is the woman I need in my bed, in my life, forever. The only problem is the douche she’s meeting at the club where I work, Aces. There have been some sketchy things happening at the club and there’s no way I’m letting anything happen to my girl.
She’s all curves I want to wrap around me and a smile I want to see every day. When she needs to be rescued, I’m right there. I’ll protect her and then I’ll make her mine.
Finding her is the best way to start the new year. I’m more than happy to snuggle up with her and keep her safe.
The moment I meet my date for the night, I know it’s going to be a bust. He’s the kind of guy I avoid and has put me off dating, but I decided I was going to try again this year and stick to my resolution. I should have known it wasn’t going to go well. It would have been better if I stayed outside to flirt with the bouncer, Lincoln.
Dad bods make my mouth water and Lincoln would be great to cuddle up with in front of a fireplace. I feel him watching me all night, making me feel safe…and other things. When he saves me from my date, I don’t remember much, but I know what my heart feels. He’s it for me.
Who knew a bad date could bring the perfect dad bod into my life?

Dad Bods made a big impression in 2021 - and they're not going anywhere! This January, some of your favorite contemporary romance authors are bringing you a sexy selection of brawny, hot Dad Bods and the women who love their men with a little something extra to hold on to.
These men may be built for comfort but don't be fooled - they will stop at nothing to protect the women who've claimed their hearts.
I’ve grumbled and sneered about doing the food for a Valentine’s Day speed dating event at Aces since the moment I was told about it. It seems like a horrible way to meet someone. How can you make a connection in five minutes?
When I do one more check to make sure everything is ready for the break in the middle of the event, all my protests fly out of the window. I don’t need five minutes to make a connection, all I need is one glimpse of her.
Watching her talk with other men has me on edge. It’s only a matter of time before I can make my approach. Then I’ll make her mine. She’s going to learn there are some perks to dating a chef and I’ll be doing a lot more than dating Paisley.
To say I was resistant to the idea of MatchMakers Inc. speed dating event would be an understatement. My best friends talked me into it. I couldn’t argue with shaking up my love life and I did make a New Year’s resolution. Everything else is going so well, but when it comes to love it’s been one mistake after another.
Spending my Valentine’s Day at the event instead of on my couch eating ice cream and watching romance movies doesn’t sound like a good time to me, but I promised I’d give it a try. I’m skeptical about the whole thing and I don’t feel a spark with any of the participants, but I’m determined to see the night through.
I’m not expecting a man to set his sights on me. He’s not even part of the event, but I can’t deny there’s something about him. With the way he looks at me and the way he makes me feel? Dating is not where this relationship ends, not even close.

I’ve been too busy to keep up with most pop culture things the last few years. Between keeping the last shreds of my family together and trying to pay my bills, sleep and work have been the only constants. I should have known Hudson Meadows wasn’t some nobody off the street, but I didn’t.
Waking up married is a…surprise. I figure it’ll be a PR nightmare for a musician like Hudson who has been chasing stardom and is finally finding it. More shocking than the rock on my finger is Hudson telling me he doesn’t want to annul this sham. He says I’m his? Maybe fame has gone to his head.
I should have known better. I’ve seen it time and time again. What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas, especially when there’s an “I do” involved.
Fame isn’t what I thought it would be when I was just a naïve kid with a song in my heart and the dreams of stage lights in my eyes. Now, knowing the other side, it’s a little lonely and hollow. Meeting Felicity is like waking up for the first time.
I don’t remember exactly how I did it, but I convinced the woman meant for me to sign her name on the dotted line and let me slip a ring on her finger. White Picket Fence Records isn’t thrilled about my impromptu wedding, but I don’t care. She’s my wife and it’s going to stay that way.
Vows were said and I’m a man of my word. Felicity might not believe or understand it, but I’m not letting her go. She’s leaving Vegas with me, and I won’t be taking no for an answer.

Whether they’ve stumbled into love, fallen for their worst enemy, corralled their bestie or are fighting to rekindle a lost love... Tag along and find out what happens "After I Do"!
Going to Mardi Gras has been on my bucket list for a long time so I decided to make it happen. It’s everything I wanted my trip to be. The sounds, the sights, the food, the fun, the beads. Right up until it goes south. Typical.
When I see something I shouldn’t, I call my bosses at Higgins Security to get help. I should have listened to them in the first place about going to New Orleans by myself. I can only hope they know someone who can help me.
Everett swooping in to save me is like a romance novel come to life. I trust him to get me out of the mess I’m in, but now my heart is on the line. After the dust settles and we’re safe, I wonder about what happens next because my trip is over, and Denver is my home.
I’m not expecting an SOS phone call from someone from my former military days, but I can’t ignore it because we’re brothers borne in blood. Whatever mess the receptionist of my friend’s security company has gotten mixed up in can’t be good. Tourists come in for Mardi Gras blissfully unaware, but the pulse of the city has been going haywire recently.
After meeting Alice, I know I’ll protect her with my life, but I hope I won’t have to. I can picture a life with her, a life better than the sound of jazz playing in the quarter. Once I get her out of the mess she’s gotten mixed up in, I have plans for my Alice.
I’ll show her New Orleans is more than plastic beads and dangerous alleyways. I’m going to figure out a way to stay in her life because she’s mine. Keeping her safe might end up being the easy part, but I’ll figure out a way to show her that by her side is the place for me.

Grandmother’s Irish blessing might be part of my roots, but I lost my luck along the way. I’m not even sure when it happened, but I know nothing has worked to get it back. Nothing has worked in my life for a long time and I’m sick of it.
I don’t know where the inspiration comes from, but something is telling me to go to Ireland in search of my history and the memories of my grandparents. If I find a little luck while I do it, all the better.
I should have known my brother, Duncan, was going to get involved. I can’t say I’m mad at him for sending Doyle to keep an eye on me. I probably need it. Causing an international incident isn’t exactly on my agenda.
I go to Ireland in search of my roots and something, anything, to change the tide of my life. I can’t help but wonder if I was looking for Doyle all along. I’m not sure if I’m lucky enough to keep him, but I hope I am.
When I get a call about an old friend’s sister traveling by herself on some quest of self-discovery, or whatever reason she has for visiting Ireland, I am hesitant to agree to keeping an eye on her. I might grumble about it, but even if I Duncan didn’t owe one, I’d do this for him. How hard could it be?
I should have asked more questions. Finley is a disaster on two legs. I’m a little worried she’ll be the death of me, us, and maybe the whole rock we live on.
The thing is, she’s also the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen. And she’s mine. All mine.
She’s looking for her history and some luck; I’ll help her find everything she thinks she wants. I’ll also give her everything she doesn’t realize she needs—a future with me filled with so much joy and love not even a little streak of unluckiness will touch it. I won’t let it.

I came home different and not only because I lost half of my leg. Part of me never came back to Sweetwater Valley. I’ve accepted it and I think the town finally has as well. They no longer look at me with pity.
I’ve proven myself on the football field with a whistle around my neck and respect from the kids I coach. I don’t need or want a woman in my life. They only want to fix me, mother me, but I can stand on my own two feet. Well, one foot and one prosthetic.
Then Poppy breezes into town full of sass and fire and curves looking like she needs a new beginning. I want to be her new beginning, but it’s not going to be easy. I can see it in her eyes. She doesn’t want to take care of another person. I’ll prove to her I can take care of myself…and her. I’ll show her there’s only one place she should be—here with me.
I’m tired and fed up. I leave the life I’ve been living behind along with the man who needed a caretaker more than a partner. The only place to go is to where family is which means Sweetwater Valley.
My plan is to take some time, find who I am again, and then set out to find where I belong. Just me and my dogs. I won’t be tied down to another man who needs someone to take care of them. Never again.
Living next to Nash is only a temporary problem. He’s younger, he’s gruff and he has demons I don’t want to even begin to understand. I don’t want anything to do with him. I don’t have anything else to give anyone. Still, I can’t ignore how much I want him to ask me to stay.

I’m halfway through my second tour and while I love the spotlight and singing for sold-out stadiums, the stalker I’ve picked up has put a damper on things. The fame that was smooth sailing has become dark, fueling my nightmares and making me feel unsafe.
I’m grateful White Picket Fences Records treats all the artists on the label like family. They prove how much they value my well-being when they send me two new bodyguards. For the first time since my stalker surfaced, I think he’ll be caught.
There’s only one problem. Kostya and Flynn do more than make me feel safe. They stoke a fire in me I’ve never known before. In many ways I belong to all my fans, but off stage two men own my heart.
When I get the word from my boss, Blake Higgins, that I’m being put on the protection detail for a pop princess, I have some concerns. My skills will be wasted following River around like a puppy.
Everything changes when I meet her. I’ll make sure to keep my woman safe. She deserves nothing less.
There’s only one problem. Kostya and I have to work together. Considering his past, I’m not sure I trust him. The more time I spend with them, the more I realize that if I want River then I’m going to have to learn how to share.
I’m a man who learned long ago the importance of knowing everything about the business I’m involved in. I may have stepped away from my family legacy, but some of the lessons have served me well. The Bratva life, with me as the prince of the Orlov crime family to my brother’s king, wasn’t for me.
I’ve had my eye on River since the moment she signed with WPF Records. She’s not the first musician I’ve done security for, but I know she’s going to be the most important. When it’s clear Flynn is just as gone for my girl as I am, the thought of sharing her doesn’t make me want to kill him.
There’s only one problem. We aren’t the only ones interested in our songbird. We’ll protect her. We’ll find her stalker. We’ll make her ours. She might share her song with the world, but her body, her soul and her heart? They’re ours.

When it's Raining Love why stop at one man to warm your bed when you can have two?
This spring, join some of your favorite contemporary romance authors for a menage romance series that will have you curling up with your ereader hoping the rain never ends.
I planned to avoid Sycamore Mountain for a lot longer than ten years, but when my dad dies, I have to go back. Hammond Whiskey Distillery isn’t the only thing waiting for me in my hometown.
Magnolia’s the girl I always wanted and could never have because she’s my sister’s best friend and too young for me. Now, she’s all grown up and even more captivating than I remember. The fire in her eyes tells me I have a lot of work ahead of me to make her mine.
I hope I’m not too late and have enough time to settle in and get through the annual Earth Day Fair. Her devotion to my family’s distillery is humbling. I should hand it over to her; maybe I will after her last name is Hammond. She thinks I’m not going to stay, but this time I’m not running. I’ll get her in my arms, in my life, permanently…after the rain.
Pining for a man who I never thought would come home has left me bitter and sad, no matter how much I try and hold onto the sunshine. I don’t know why he’s stayed away so long, but I can only hope it’s not because of me.
I’ve given so many years to Hammond Whiskey Distillery trying to feel closer to Ryland, but time still passes and I’m still alone. No one was prepared for Mr. Hammond’s death, least of all me. It’s the only reason Ryland comes back to Sycamore Mountain, but who is to say he’ll stay?
Seeing him again reminds me that pieces of my heart are still jagged even though Harmony, my best friend and Ryland’s sister, tried to help me smooth them out over the years. Working together gives me hope I’m not sure I can trust. Maybe a little rain will wash away the past. When the clouds part, I don’t know what path I’ll be on, but Ryland will know he’s not the only one who has changed.

I didn’t join my best friends in their resolutions to get their love lives on track this year. Finding a man has never been my problem. Now, finding the right one? That’s a whole other story.
I’ve been keeping my resolution this year close, not even sharing it with my friends, and it has nothing to do with men. This year is all about me and what makes me happy. A man has never been able to do that.
I should have known the moment I decided to be all about me and not let a man into my life one would be dropped in my lap. All I was supposed to do was help Lincoln design the perfect engagement ring for my bestie, Willow. I had no idea I’d meet Holden.
Now my resolution is crumbling, but I think I’m okay with it. There might be enough room for me and love this year.
The Pink Collar Temp Agency has allowed me to connect with clients and make a name for myself in Denver with my jewelry. My dream is to have my own shop and every customer I gain gets me one step closer. Still, it’s a long way off.
I learned a long time ago that women only see the sparkling things I can give them instead of me. Maybe I’m jaded, but my experience doesn’t lie. I didn’t expect everything I thought I knew about love to be upended with one client meeting.
Coral is more beautiful than any gem I’ve put in a setting. It’s a good thing the engagement ring my customer wants to design isn’t for my woman because I hate to lose a sale. She’d be worth it though.
I’ll show her I’m the man for her and the ones who let her down in the past aren’t worth another thought. We’re diamonds in the rough, but I know just how to make us shine.

Pink Collar Temp Agency is a multi-author series full of steamy instalove short stories with hot men and curvy lady bosses.
I have big news for my guys. As much as I wanted to tell them the moment I found out, I decided waiting for our vacation to Temptation in Paradise Resort would make it extra special. I know they’ll be thrilled.
We need a little break from the city. Sandy beaches at a resort built for pleasure and fun sounds perfect. They won’t tell me which one of them came up with the idea, but it doesn’t matter.
By the end of the trip, we’ll have more memories between us and even more hope for our future.
Something is going on with our little lamb and I intend to use this vacation to find out what it is. I know she’s happy and we give her everything she needs, so I’m not worried too much. This vacation is exactly what we all need to leave the stress of our lives behind and get to the bottom of what she’s hiding.
She’s still ours and now I’ll get to see her in a bathing suit…if we ever give her a chance to wear one.
Sometimes you have to take the show on the road and Ella deserves to be pampered beyond what the city can provide. Not only does she put up with the three of us, but she does it with a smile on her face and love in her heart.
I’m not worried about what she’s been hiding like Colt is, no matter how much he tries to deny it. Whatever she has up her sleeve will be worth the wait. Now it’s time to see her skin become sun kissed while we treat her like a queen. I can’t wait to sink our teeth into this vacation.
**18+. If you like alpha heroes and an insta-love story that is sweet and spicy but isn’t necessarily simple, then this is for you. No cheating with a guaranteed HEA. While this can be read as a standalone, this is a continuation with characters from a previous book, Room Three: They Like to Bite (Club Sin Series) which is related to my Denver Family series (Banks Ink., Suburban Outcasts and Higgins Security).**
Every life I’ve taken is a stain on my soul, one I accepted a long time ago. There have only been a few good things I’ve done in my life, but it isn’t enough. It’ll never be enough.
The people whose lives I hold in my hands never see me coming, they never know I’m there until it’s far too late with a rose left in my wake. For their lives. For my penance. For proof to the ones who pay for my services. I leave them behind and I mark them on my body.
When I see her, for the first time since I found myself in a life I can’t undo, I wish my soul wasn’t tainted. I know I’ll corrupt her, but I can’t stay away. She’s mine and it’s only a matter of time until I prove it to her. I’ll watch her and keep her safe because my life will drown her.
When keeping her safe means coming out into the light, will she be able to accept me as the monster I am? Will my rose show her thorns, her strength? How beautiful will she look with a soul as dark as mine?
Can you love your life and be bored by it at the same time? I love my flower shop, but it feels like it’s the only thing I have to show for my days. People come in and then leave to deliver joyful bouquets.
It isn’t enough, but it’s not until the first time I feel him watching me that I know awareness which stretches beyond my skin. How long can I stay stagnant and waiting before I give up on the hope I feel when I know he’s watching? I’ve never even seen him, but I know he’s there.
Danger always feels like a possibility, but I know it won’t touch me with him around. The truth of it whispers across my soul. Until everything changes.
When he saves me I wonder if the wishes I’ve made can become reality. What will I have to give up to keep him? I’ll do anything because he’s mine and I’m his, even if that means stepping in to his world with both feet and my head held high. He cradles me where roses lay, but will it last?
**18+. This story has dark themes and a morally gray hero. You’ll still find an insta-love story that is spicy and isn’t necessarily simple, but with darker themes, situations, rough spicy times and depictions of violence (not between the MMC and MFC). No cheating with a guaranteed HEA. This book has ties to my Denver Family book but does not contain any characters from those storylines. This book is related to my Agosti Crime Family books but can be read as a standalone. Meet the Agosti family in Flames and Flowers. Meet Briar in Room Three: They Like to Bite (Club Sin Series).**
I got left behind and forgotten by my family a long time ago. I had to fend for myself in the debris of our broken home. When I got my first taste of freedom, I went a little wild. I don’t see any reason to apologize for it.
Now I find myself in a little bit of a predicament. I got kicked out of college. I have no idea what I’m doing and no real prospects. It’s the only reason I take the nanny job dropped into my lap by my brother.
I should have asked more questions because I’m not prepared to meet Wyatt for the first time. He might be twice my age, but he makes me feel something real when I’ve been running and pretending for so long. He tries to hide how he reacts to me, but I can see it.
I’ve fallen for Wyatt and his little boy, but part of me is scared to trust. No one has wanted to keep me before, not even my family. What can I really offer other than unrequited dreams and a rebellious spirit that rides me hard?
I’ve never claimed to be anything more than I am. There are a few things in this life I’m good at and value. My art is one of them. Being a tattoo artist has given me the life I never thought I’d have.
I have my Vibrant Ink family and a business I’m proud of. It’s enough. At least, I thought it was, but maybe I’ve only been fooling myself.
The world I’ve built gets thrown out the window when the ten-year-old son I never knew I had is left on my doorstep. When I need help I know right where to go. My son needs some supervision and I need some help. I wasn’t expecting Tenley, a woman who is way too young for me with a wild streak which needs to be tamed.
I can’t seem to resist her no matter how hard I try. I’m twice Tenley’s age, but she’s mine. I’m exactly the man she needs in her life. I’ll prove it to her and give her the stability she’s craving.
I needed place to go after my old roommate flaked and left me homeless and a little desperate. I had no idea I’d find the most insufferable man in all of Denver with a room available. He’s gruff. He’s loud when I wish he was quiet. He has no idea about personal space.
He’s also the best kisser I’ve ever locked lips with. I shouldn’t want him. He’s everything I’ve tried to stay away from.
I should move out, but I can’t bring myself to do it. I hate to admit it, but I’d miss his kisses and I’d miss him.
Maybe being his roommate isn’t so bad. But is that all we are?
After my sister, Iris, moved out to start her life with her husband, Gavin, I was a little lonely, even though I tried to deny it. The house was too quiet. I didn’t have anyone to take care of anymore. I thought a roommate was a good solution and it would help with the bills.
I should have said no women in the ad because the moment Zoey walks through my door, I want to lock it behind her and never let her go. The problem is she doesn’t seem to like me very much. If only she knew it turns me on when she’s annoyed at me because it lights a fire in her eyes I can’t resist.
I’ll get her to fall for me. I think kissing her is the perfect way to do it.
She’s more than my roommate. She’s mine.
