Uncaged




NEW RELEASE!

Most people’s soulmate brings light, joy, and happiness into their lives. Jozsua’s brought death.
As the younger brother of a notorious crime lord, Jozsua’s life has been anything but normal. Mostly, it’s been spent hiding out in the open. He’s been fighting on the MMA circuit while trying to keep his sister-in-law and niece safe from the remnants of his brother’s reputation since his death. The only break Jozsua has ever had from the monotony of life on the run, was that one time he fell in love with a killer.
Dmitry’s been called a lot of things—murderer, psychopath… hitman. Being as how it’s all true, he doesn’t let it get to him. Since he’s a sociopath, it wouldn’t bother him even if it could. When he’s sent to infiltrate the Danshov family, he also doesn’t let the fact he’ll have to kill them all one day stop him from pursuing Jozsua. After all, he’s not one to deny himself when someone catches his eye. However, once Jozsua was in his bed and in his head, Dmitry couldn’t shake him.
Now, with the job he was hired to complete out of the way, Dmitry has his sights set on Jozsua once again. With all his secrets on the table, he has one last job to do—win back the man who gave him a conscience. The man whose brother Dmitry killed.
Author note: This is a dark story not meant for all readers. Jozsua and Dmitry’s love is borderline insanity, but it’s their love story.

Cover reveal and chance to win



Coming March 15, 2017....




Jonathan thinks Cin is too perfect to be real. He’s right.

As the top investigative reporter for Global Daily, Jonathan travels all over the world. Three weeks in Tortola, covering the story of the disappearance of twelve women, sounds like heaven. After all, the island is one of the most beautiful in the world. He doesn’t have many leads. The women only have one thing in common. They all went missing from the same club—Consume. Fifteen minutes into visiting the club, Jonathan sees him, and the world slips away.

Cinaed, better known as Cin, spots Jonathan the moment he walks through the club’s door. It’s obvious the man is out of place. Cin slips into Jonathan’s mind, catching visions he can’t shake. He’s never wanted a human for anything other than blood and sex, but Jonathan is different. That’s why Cin has to keep the man addicted to being in his bed and send him home safely. There’s nothing in Tortola for Jonathan except death.

Once Jonathan’s three weeks are at an end, it doesn’t take long for him to realize something is wrong. His trip has been—at best—a hazy memory of steamy nights, and he never spent a moment researching his story. No matter how deep he digs into the recesses of his brain, there’s nothing except the sexy Scot he met at Consume. With a burning need to know everything, and a deep fear he’s been drugged to keep him from his investigation, Jonathan cashes in his extensive vacation time before setting out to break this story. This time, he’s determined he won’t let anything keep him from the truth, even if it means finding out Cin is the man behind everything.

Undamaged



Re-releasing today!

No Rival series, book 6.
When Kip’s boyfriend abandoned her, Brian and Terry—two of MMA’s greatest—came to her rescue. Now, two years later, they’re the only ones who know the truth. Kip has more dark secrets in her past than just a no-good ex turned deadbeat dad.
Kip hadn’t planned on staying in Vegas. She’d thought to rest and move on—but then, she hadn’t expected to meet someone like Cameron.
A horrific wartime injury changed Cameron’s mind and body. As part of Terry’s soldier rehabilitation program, Cameron has fought his way back from the brink. He’s accepted he’ll never regain the life he once had but Kip makes him dream.
When Kip’s past threatens their fragile love and tests the boundaries of all Cameron stands for, he has to make a choice—give up the only person who makes him feel alive or embrace the fact there is no black and white.

Terry has seen the top and is happy with his life in retirement. However, the chance to help a fellow fighter regain his dream is something he can’t resist.
When Brian accepts Terry’s offer, the sexual magnetism between them catches Brian off guard. Keeping his attraction hidden becomes a bigger challenge than regaining his strength. Plus, Terry’s mixed signals leave Brian frustrated and confused.
Though Terry is just as hot for Brian, he has secrets that could tear their budding romance apart. But he simply cannot resist the pull Brian has over him or the heat between them. Through it all, both men discover that love really can conquer all.

But Kerry has a few secrets of her own and her plans for him land Rhys in a place he never expected—the arms of sexy Italian solicitor, Asher D’Ettore.
