About the Book

Lynnwood Thatcher Windsor has lived a lot of lies. Seen a lot of good men go down.

But he will not stand by and watch as the world he’s built from the ground up burns to ashes before his eyes. Even if he has to build an army to combat the problem he sees brewing around him.

One step at a time, he carefully lays out his plan, building layer after careful layer until everything is where he wants it to be.

Every part is impeccably played, his pawns are in the perfect place, and then she barrels into his life, totally scattering every single piece he’s set in motion.

The bad thing is, she doesn’t even realize how badly she’s messed up until she’s roused the beast.

***

The day that Six Ines Broussard met Lynnwood Thatcher Windsor was the worst day of her life.

First, she has a public breakup with a man she’s not even dating. Second, she has to deal with a black-tie event that she’d rather gouge her eyes out than to go to. Third, she then has to sit at a table for hours on end with the one man she despises.

Just wanting a break, she thinks she’ll lose herself for a few hours and do what she loves to do best—spend time by herself and go for a walk in the middle of nowhere, spot some birds, and get a little sun. Only, her day doesn’t go nearly as planned.

She walks right into the middle of hell. And at the center of it? Lynnwood Thatcher. The mayor. The man that she took one glance at on the night of his inauguration and dismissed as boring. A total stick in the mud.

Only, he’s not so boring shirtless, in the middle of nowhere, doing things that are very illegal.

At first, she’s appalled. Then her interest gets piqued. Stuck-up suit is hot! And he has tattoos. Oh, and let’s not forget one hell of a mouth on him!

Then he goes and kidnaps her, and she realizes that nobody is quite as hot as you thought they were when they’re now holding you hostage.

“Six” Ines Broussard can’t seem to catch a break. She is at a black tie affair and gets mistaken for someone whose significant other is trying to break up with! She is only there for her father who she loathes and makes her life miserable. She literally does everything in her power to make him miserable right back. She wears the most outlandish outfits with crazy hair and even brings her own food to eat! Her antics had me laughing out loud more than once. The only saving grace is she gets to sit near the new mayor Lynn. He is definitely older than her but not as old as her Dad. But boy is he hot! A little too stuffy for her liking but it’s what gets her through the ordeal.

Wanting to get away from life for a few days, Six takes off to her place of solace. A friend’s piece of land where she can lie under the stars and relax. Only Six never imagined what she would walk into while hiking. In the middle of a field, a man is being beaten or tortured. She is shocked beyond belief to see the hot as hell, shirtless, tattooed god doing the beating is none other then the new stuffy mayor she just met! Lynn knows he can’t let her leave without talking to her so he takes her. Kidnaps her..if you will.

This is where the craziness all starts. Secrets are revealed. A few twists. The hot, steamy attraction between these two gets turned up several notches. Definitely a must read!

A Co-Worker’s Crush by Piper Rayne ~ Release Blitz w/ 4.5 Star Review!

A CO-WORKER’S CRUSH
By Piper Rayne
Release Date: January 5

Three tattoo guns.

Five motorcycle tires.

Countless T-shirts.

That’s what I lost before I realized nothing good comes from dating my co-workers. 

Usually, I don’t have much self-control. So, the fact that Frankie Grant is a hot, talented tattoo artist means it’s a damn miracle she hasn’t already been in my bed. But nothing can happen between us because Frankie comes with Jolie, her young daughter, and a crap load of baggage from her ex. And those are two things I never entertain.

Anyone who knows me—the screwed up foster kid from the wrong side of the tracks—knows I’m not the guy you take home to meet your parents, let alone your kid. But I also know what it’s like not to have parents, so things get complicated when Jolie asks me to be her daddy.

I might as well just slash my own tires now.

In this book, we get Frankie and Jax! Finally! I have waited a long time for this one! In the previous books in this series, we have gotten such a build up and small glimpses of these two but the attraction was building. I was waiting patiently and it did not disappoint. I won’t give too much away but I will give you a brief overview.

As I said, Frankie and Jax are not new to us…but how they start to interact is. Jax is a world famous tattoo artist and has scratched and clawed his way to the top. He is a foster child and his childhood was less then stellar. He is now working in his friend Dylan’s tattoo shop who he has known since he was a kid but a big falling out has left a gaping whole in their friendship – one Jax is trying to repair.

Also working as a tattoo artist is Frankie, a badass artist chick and mom to a young girl Jolie. A little girl that Jax has become quite smitten with over time. Frankie has some baggage and that includes a drug addict baby daddy that she is trying to cut ties with.

Frankie and Jax have had this hate/hate relationship in the last few books that we have caught glimpses of. It’s not until now that their slow burn attraction to each other that they have kept hidden has finally ignited into a monstrous flame.

This was such a fun book to read. I loved seeing these two try to fit into each other’s lives and get past all their insecurities. Not to mention one or two steamy scenes! I also loved getting updates on all the friends who have had past books. This is one kick ass love story!

Only One Night by Natasha Madison ~ Release Blitz w/ 4 Star Review!

ONLY ONE NIGHT
By Natasha Madison
Release Date: January 5

Manning
As captain of the Dallas Oilers, I was their leader on and off the ice. From the outside, it looked like I had the perfect life.

I didn’t.

I was married to a woman who refused to give me a divorce. All she wanted was the status title, and all I wanted was to be set free.

It was supposed to be just another event, except it took a turn I didn’t see coming.

Evelyn
Attending my best friend’s bachelorette party isn’t something I was looking forward to.
But it’s strange what a couple of glasses of wine will do.

It was one night, and I thought I would never see him again.

Especially not coming face-to-face with him and his wife while picking up my nephew from hockey practice.

All it takes is one kiss, one touch, one chance, and only one night.

Manning is the captain of his hockey team and an all around awesome guy. Super hot, rich, talented and is loved by all. Except his wife. His wife is the epitome of evil. She doesn’t love him but loves what he can offer her and will NOT give him a divorce. Something he has asked for, for years. But she won’t and holds their son over his head. He loves his son and feels like he would die without him in his life so he does what a guy with no choices does. He stays for his son but is miserable. They put on a good act because his wife will not let anyone know there are troubles in their marriage. Even though she is having an affair with her trainer inside their house.

Evelyn is back in her hometown looking for a fresh start. She left a mess behind and needs a new direction. At a chance meeting, her and Manning’s lives collide. All it took was one touch and look. Let’s just say that it’s a one night stand that neither of them will ever forget! Until Evelyn sees him again with his son and his wife and she realizes that he is married. Now I’m not a big fan of a cheating scenerio and obviously neither is Evelyn which is why she tells him to get lost. But there is a bigger picture here and it was awesome to watch Evelyn realize it.

It was a fun read watching these two fall head over heels for each other while navigating Manning somehow getting out of his marriage unscathed. There were times when I felt these two didn’t have a chance in hell. But phew is Manning relentless! Definitely worth a read to find out if these two can find a way through the maze of their lives to finally make it out together!

Take Me Away by Kelly Elliott ~ Release Blitz w/ 4.5 Star Review!

Take Me Away by Kelly Elliott is now live!

To love her is to forget she ever existed in my world.

When I’m not a test pilot flying for the U.S. Air Force, I can be found risking my life in other ways.

Skydiving. No problem.

Bungee jumping off a bridge. Like a pro.

Paragliding in Switzerland. Time of my life.

Zorbing in New Zealand. Fun as hell.

You see…all these life-risking adventures are not just a hobby for me, not just a way to pass the time. I need the adrenaline rush like I need my next breath. I’m addicted to it. It’s the only thing that allows me to bury my painful past–even if only for as long as it takes for me to come down from the high. All that matters is that I’m able to forget. And every heart-stopping moment of it was working…at least, until she appeared back in my life.

Both my worst nightmare and my wildest dream all wrapped up in one beautiful woman…a woman I was still very much in love with.

And that’s not the worst part…

Linnzi Cunningham has no idea who I am. She has no idea how intertwined our terrible pasts are–and for that, she is lucky.

She doesn’t remember the night when everything important in her life, everything that she lived for, was taken from her by the man who promised he would always protect her.

That man was me.

To love her is to forget she ever existed in my world.

This next story in this series is a winner in my book. I have read my fair share of accident/amnesia love stories but this one was very well done and I felt it down to my toes! Linnzi and Nolan have suffered unimaginable loss. Nolan carries more than his share of the guilt on his shoulders because of it. He’s become reckless with his own life trying to bury the pain from it. He is still a pilot all these years later but after the accident, he is now a test pilot in the Air Force and taking risk after risk.

One thing is different for Linnzi. She has no memory of this loss, accident or even her longtime love Nolan. She is off in Paris living what she thought was her dream job. She has dreams of a love, a love so strong it defies time. She feels deep in her bones a part of her is missing and aches for it.

When happenstance finally brings these two back together, face to face…that aching is bursting out of Linnzi. She knows without a doubt this is her missing piece to her puzzle. But can Nolan forgive himself enough to give Linnzi what she seeks? What will happen when she finds out the real truth about her loss and aching?

This was definitely a page turner and a heartbreakingly, beautiful love story of two halves becoming one again. Definitely worth the read!

Fighter’s Heart by A. Rivers ~ Release Blitz w/ 4 Star Review & Excerpt!

Title: Fighter’s Heart
Series: Crowne MMA Romance #1
Author: A. Rivers
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: December 7, 2020

BLURB

Lena
I never meant to become the go-to P.R. girl for the biggest jerks in professional sports.
Unfortunately, I built a reputation for turning douchebags into superstars, and now I’m stuck.
When I’m assigned to work with a guy accused of hitting his girlfriend, enough is enough.
I know all about men like Jase ‘The Wrangler’ Rawlins, and I have the emotional scars to prove it.
Mouthy, conceited, and hot as f*ck, he’s used to getting his way.
I want nothing to do with him, but my boss makes an offer I can’t refuse.
My dreams are finally within reach, and the more I get to know Jase, the more I wonder if I’ve gotten him completely wrong.
He may be bossy and infuriating, but he’s hiding a heart as massive as his ego.
Can I let go of the past and trust the feelings growing between us when my career is on the line?

Jase
Trouble is nothing new for an MMA bad boy like me, but this time I’m in too deep and can’t get out.
At least, not without help.
That’s where Lena LaFontaine comes in.
All buttoned-up blouses and ass-hugging skirts, she’s a distraction I don’t need, but she’s also the only one who can make my problems go away.
She wants to hate me. I’m not going to let that happen.
I never expect the way I ache to taste her pouty lips and claim her for my own.
My life is on the verge of imploding, and when it does, I’m not sure if I’ll emerge as a champion or be imprisoned for a crime I didn’t commit.
I won’t drag her down with me, but when push comes to shove, I don’t know if I can give her up, either.

Fighter’s Heart is a standalone MMA romance with a cocky alpha hero and a sassy heroine who knows how to keep him in check. It has a HEA, no cheating, and no cliffhanger.

Jase “The Wrangler” Rawlins is a hot, cocky MMA fighter who is at the top of his game and has no shortage of women ready to jump in bed with him for a few rounds. He finds himself in hot water, however, when an ex accuses him of domestic abuse. This accusation comes right before one of the biggest fights of his life and he needs this to go away and fast.

Enter Lena. She’s a top hotshot publicist who is know to make problems disappear for athletes. When it’s suggested she help Jase, she is immediately ready to turn down this job. Personal experience with not only domestic abuse but MMA fighters has left bad taste in her mouth and distaste is exactly what she feels for this cocky fighter.

Their first meeting is hilarious and as hard as she pushes the notion of helping him away, he pushes just as hard back. Naturally the truth is revealed and Lena can’t help but see the softer side of Jase and starts to fall for him but can she trust another fighter with a temper?

This was a super, super fast read and I wished it had been longer. It was a fast paced story with some hot sexy scenes and a little twist thrown in to add to the drama. Solid book that held my attention but damn, wish it had been longer! I didn’t want it to end!

EXCERPT

Jase

All the frustration I’ve worked off over the past two hours comes flooding back at the sight of Lena—furious expression, sassy walk, and all. Her cheeks are flushed with anger and her eyes may as well be shooting laser beams straight at me. Her lips move, but I don’t hear the words. My blood has redirected from my big head to my generously proportioned smaller one. Fuck, she’s hot when she’s mad.

She thumps me in the chest, and I scarcely notice. Her fists are tiny. She could probably punch me in the nose and not even crack the bone. Her eyes narrow, and she gets up in my face—a hard ask when she’s several inches shorter than me.

“Do you think this is funny?” she asks, jabbing me in the chest with her free hand. I glance down and see she’s holding a magazine. With a sinking sensation, I take it from her and hold it up so I can see the cover. It’s a photograph from yesterday, of me standing over Erin like a brute. The headline screams at me, and I show Gabe, then shove the magazine into Lena’s hands, sick to my stomach. I won’t read it. I already know it’s full of vitriolic bullshit, and I don’t even blame the reporter for spouting it. I handed the media a gold mine by going after Erin. I’ve made her the poster child for standing up in the face of domestic abuse, with me cast in the role of monster.

Jesus. Fuck.

Lena was right all along. This is serious.

“There are others,” she says, in case I’m holding out any hope that the story has been picked up by a lone tabloid. Closing my eyes, I mutter a stream of curses, growing more creative with each one.

“Hey, brother.” Gabe claps me on the shoulder, which nearly knocks me over since his forearms are covered by heavy kick pads. “You can get past this.” He turns to Lena. “You can fix this, right? That’s what he hired you for?”

Lena releases a long, slow breath. I can sense her hesitation, and it fuels a desperation deep within me. I worked fucking hard to get to where I am. It’s not possible that a selfish girl with a taste for the spotlight could take it away so easily, is it?

“Please.” I grab her free hand between both of mine even though she has a perfect manicure and my gloves are soaked with sweat and completely disgusting. “You’ve gotta try.”

She stares at me, some of her hostility fading, and nibbles on her lower lip. Finally, an excruciatingly long moment later, she says, “You just made my job so much more difficult. I hope you understand that.”

“I do.”

“Trust me, Lena,” Gabe adds. “He may come across as a douche, but he’s not a stupid one. He knows he fucked up.” He shucks his pads and stands shoulder to shoulder with me, the both of us facing her down. This doesn’t seem to intimidate her as it might others. It fires her up. She flicks her sexy red hair over her shoulder and gives us a single, firm nod.

“Well, okay then. Glad we know where we stand.” There’s a brief moment when I think she’s going to move on without rubbing salt in the wound. Then the moment passes. “For the record, I’ve met mushrooms with more forethought than you.”

Should have known she wouldn’t let me off so easily. I suppose if she wants to compare me to fungi, at least it’s a tasty one.

“If we’re going to do this, you need to be a whole lot more open with me. I want no-holds-barred access to your life, Jase. I ask a question, you answer it immediately and truthfully. I make a suggestion, you do everything within your power to make it happen. If you want to climb out of this hole you’ve dug, I need your complete and total commitment. Think you can manage that, fighter boy?”

“That’s fighter man to you.” I can’t resist needling her, and her face screws up the way I knew it would. “But yeah, I’ll do what you say and I’ll accept any help I can get.”

“Good.” Her lips purse, and she seems to have run out of steam. I can see her mentally switching from bulldozer mode to thinking mode, calculating our next steps, figuring out how to get ahead of this, and for the first time, I feel like maybe she’s on my side. Maybe she’s actually invested in me.

The next question out of her mouth is one I don’t see coming. “Is there any truth to Erin’s story?”

“No,” Gabe and I answer at the same time.

“Okay,” she nods, accepting our reply at face value, and I can still see the information running through her mind and being processed. She has a shit poker face, but that’s beside the point. This woman is actually listening to what I have to say and taking it on board. Is she for real?

Her belief in me—if that’s what it is—feels good. Like, unreasonably good. I want to grab her around the waist and twirl her in the air, or take her face between my palms and kiss her irresistible ruby lips. When another ten seconds pass without her saying anything snarky, I’m halfway tempted to strip her clothes off and bang her on the floor, audience be damned.

Finally, she comes to a decision. “There are some things I need to take care of. I’ll be in touch with you later.”

Her hand is still in my grasp, and I squeeze it. “Thanks.” My voice is raspy with emotion, and I cough to clear it. Goddamn it, I am not a pussy.

She studies me, and I’m not sure what she sees, but she seems to like it. “You’re welcome, fighter man.”

My lips quirk up. “You know what I think?”

She tugs her hand away and places it on her hip. “Do I want to know?”

Ah, there’s my mouthy girl. “I think you like me.” She starts to scowl, but I barrel on. “I think you care what happens to me.”

“Do not,” she says, a deep blush traveling down to the neckline of her shirt. With a complexion like that, I bet her entire body blushes, and I want to tear her blouse in half to find out. “I care about keeping my career on track.”

“Uh-huh.” I give her a cocky grin that I know will rile her more. “You tell yourself that, cutie pie.”

She huffs. “You’re insufferable.” Then she whirls around and marches away, the curve of her butt bouncing with each step.

When she’s gone, Gabe whistles under his breath. “Man, she’s something.”

I punch him in the gut, hard enough to sting but not hurt. “Eyes to yourself. She’s not here for your viewing pleasure.”

He guffaws. “That doesn’t stop you.”

“I don’t need you pointing out my hypocrisy.” I stretch my legs and shake them, refusing to analyze why the thought of anyone else checking Lena out makes me want to wrap my arm around the asshole’s throat—friend or not. “Let’s get back to training.”
