I left here a man but came back a beast

CHANCE

A shoulder-fired missile broke my body.

But betrayal obliterated my heart.

For months I lingered in and out of hell until my body healed.

Now I’m back in town with my club brothers. But I am still fighting a war of darkness in my head and I can’t see a way out.

Then she comes to town like a summer breeze and makes me feel things I didn’t know existed.

She has the voice of an angel and the body of a goddess.

But she is running from her own demons. From the Devil himself.

He's coming to town.

But I've walked through hell and survived, and I'll walk through it again to protect her.

CASSIDY

I’ve spent years running from my past.

Town to town.

State to state.

Never putting down roots.

I wish I could but I can’t. Because I am running from the Devil and if he finds me, he will drag me down to hell again.

Then I meet a beautiful, scarred beast of man who makes me feel something for the first time in my life.

Hope.

He makes me want to stay but it’s impossible.

Because the Devil is coming and when he arrives I won't stand a chance.

Hell on Wheels is book four in the Kings of Mayhem MC series

Note: For mature audiences, ages18 and older. This book deals with sensitive topics that may be triggers for some readers.

 

Full of intrigue, emotion and blinding passion! With the next book in the Kings of Mayhem MC series, we get Chance’s story and man was it a great one! I was quickly drawn in to the drama of the story line and quick to turn page after page to see what was going to happen. The characters were emotionally gripping, both with complex backgrounds that added depth to the story. I have loved this entire series and hope this isn’t the last we will see of the Kings of Mayhem!

Chance Calley is back home in Destiny, but he’s a shell of the man he used to be. Badly injured physically, but even more scarred emotionally, he’s just going through the paces of getting out of bed day after day … until he meets a reason to come alive again.

Cassidy is running away from the devil himself. She’s lived a hard life from the start, but her life on the run is taking a toll and leaves her wishing she could shelter in the arms of the sexy biker who took an interest in her the moment he heard her sing. It doesn’t take long after meeting him for her to realize her cover has been blown and her past is on her tail with a vengeance. She’s ready to run, but Chance sets out to teach her that the Kings protect what’s theirs … and he’s ready to stake his claim!

The day I lost my best friend was the day I realized that I'd been living in the past. I've tried to find a way to heal, to mend that break. Somehow, I came through it partially whole. But I know I couldn't have done that without Aiden Connolly.

The problem is, he once loved my best friend. And now she's gone, and I refuse to be in that shadow, or worse, a replacement for someone we both loved.

~~

I left them all behind.

My brother.

My family.

My best friend.

And her.

Only Sienna Knight doesn't realize what she means to me. But before I can make sure she knows, I need to figure out exactly what that is.

 

Emotional and full of turmoil! With the third book in Carrie Ann Ryan’s Fractured Connections series, we get Sienna and Aiden’s story. They are both riddled with questions and guilt surrounding Allison’s death, and fighting their attraction to each other with every breath in their body. This story line has a powerful edge, yet the camaraderie of this close group of friends brings a light-hearted aspect to the dialogue as well. The back story is fairly well developed and while the hint of intrigue falls a bit flat, the human emotion is spot on and carries the story well. Really enjoying this entire series!

Sienna Knight is attempting to heal her broken heart over the loss of her best friend, but the emotional turmoil of it all has taken it’s toll. Being around Aiden is bittersweet. She needs him close to make herself feel like she’s coming full-circle in her emotional well-being, but she’s torn because he’s supposed to be forbidden.

Aiden Connolly is finally putting in an effort to heal the rift that has been festering in his family for years, and it’s bittersweet. He’s enjoying time with his brother’s more than he can say, but it’s putting into perspective for him that he has done a lot wrong in life and should have been there more. When an unexpected happening makes him admit how much Sienna means to him, life starts on a whole new type of roller coaster as they finally open their eyes and decide to let themselves live.

Piper Mackenzie first sees him shirtless, standing in front of the military plane she was about to board, with one rather large wrench in his hand. The fact that he has the plane—the one that she’s about to be flying on for hours—in pieces only minutes before she’s set to take off on it doesn’t faze her. At least not until a flippant joke about dying in mid-air leaves his lips.

The second time she sees him, he’s helping her from the wreckage of her car. The wreckage that he helped cause.

The third, he’s laying across from her in the same bed, and there’s no denying what happened the night before.

The fourth, well that time would be the first of many. Being Mrs. Jonah Crew has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?

*****

Jonah Crew saw her for the first time as she stared at him in awe. It was snowing, the temp was in the negative degrees, and he couldn’t think about anything but her and the look of horror on her face when he tells a badly-timed joke.

The second time he sees her, his heart skips a beat, but not for the reason that one might think. Mainly, it’s due in part to the fact that his truck smashed into her car so hard that his chest hits the steering wheel and his heart decides to stop working right.

The third time, he’s fairly positive that he’s died and gone to heaven. At least, that’s what waking up next to a beautiful woman like her signifies, right?

The fourth? Well, he’s not quite sure how he got there, but he’s already said ‘I do’ so what’s a guy to do?

 

Addictive from start to finish! With the next book in her KPD Motorcycle Patrol series, Lani Lynn Vale once again wraps an unlikely pair around our hearts. The relationship is fast paced, but they’re not only adorable together, but sexy as all get out. Lots of heat, sass and humor steals the show and the hint of intrigue seals it all up into a great read!

Piper Mackenzie knows she’s not a good flyer, so the fact that she’s going it without meds on her way back home from her military stint in Germany is awfully brave of her. Or stupid, depending on how you look at it. Factoring in the shirtless hunk working on the plane making a poorly timed joke is just icing on the cake to further her freak out.

Texas cop Jonah Crew considers it a big coincidence when he finds out the woman he freaked out, who’s hand is now squeezing his to the point of cutting off feeling, is heading home to Kilgore as well. Fate seems to be shining down on them to keep throwing them together as the days pass and eventually their enjoyment of each other reaches an all time high … a drunken wedding in Vegas high!

Sophia Andreou has always been the “good daughter” who tried to keep her domineering father happy. She followed the rules and did everything that was asked of her. But this time, her father is asking too much. The family company is crumbling, and her father has arranged a marriage to a Greek billionaire who can save their property business. What?! Umm no thank you. If Cinderella can dress up to win a prince, surely Sophia can do the opposite and ditch hers...

Dion Kourakis has come a long way from being an orphan with only a single friend to his name. Now he runs a billion-dollar investment company and has the respect of everyone in Europe. His charming personality covers a lot of emotional scars, including his desire to make his mentor proud. Dion doesn’t exactly want a bride to go along with his next business deal, and he plans on letting the lass down gently when they meet...

Only, his future bride has turned out to be nothing like what he thought she’d be. She’s quirky and has a habit of turning up to social events in strange outfits. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out what she’s up to, but the harder she tries to convince him she’d be an awful wife, the more he wants to convince her they’d be perfect together.

 

Quickly addictive and absolutely delightful! With the second book in her Greek Billionaires series, Stefanie London brings new meaning to laugh out loud funny! With a quirky addition to her heroine’s repertoire that reader’s won’t soon forget, she delights our imagination and tickles our funny bone time and again. I loved that it had so much humor woven in, yet was also very spot on in delivering a sensitive side to each of the main characters that drew us into their story. Lots of fun to read with a satisfying ending!

Sophia Andreou can’t believe what her domineering father is stooping to this time. She has put up with many of his schemes in her day in order to keep peace in the household, but this time he’s sunk to an all time low. He expects her to marry a total stranger to get his flailing business and debts taken care of. So what if he’s a gorgeous Greek billionaire … she’ll figure out a way to get rid of him!

Dion Kourakis isn’t interested in marrying anymore than she is, but he is interested in obtaining that company … if marriage is the only way to do it, he’ll make do. Once he meets Sophia and all of her quirky ways, he realizes he’s in for the ride of his life!

Excerpt:

He expected some hesitation from her over the marriage thing. Hell, he’d hesitated himself. It had taken him a full two weeks to process her father’s offer—or rather, ultimatum—and come to grips with the idea of marrying a stranger. Seeing his mentor, Elias, hooked up to half a dozen different machines after having a fall in his home, with tubes coming out of every orifice, had finally pushed him over the edge.

Closure was now within Dion’s grasp, he could shut the final page of his father’s book. He wanted that feeling so bad he could taste it…so bad he would marry a stranger.

“We have plenty of time to get to know one another.” Dion motioned for her to follow him outside. “Your father told me that you’ve been working in the family business.”

“That’s right. I’ve been doing some general admin,” she replied. “And I have my own virtual assistant business, too.”

The sun had set some time ago, but the lights dotted around the garden brightened the front of the house. He unlocked the car and held the door for her.

“Ah, so you’re a businesswoman. I’m sure we’ll have a lot to talk about, then.”

“Sure, although it’s not real passion in life, to be honest.” She looked at him expectantly, as though wanting an invitation to elaborate.

“What would you rather be doing?” he asked.

The car’s engine rumbled as he pulled out of the circular path in front of the four-car garage. A warm breeze carried the salty tang of the ocean into the car.

“You know, I’m really passionate about taxidermy.” Sophia nodded as though this was the most normal thing to say. “There’s just something about animals that fascinates me.”

“Taxidermy?” He frowned. “Like, stuffing dead animals?”

“Stuffing or mounting,” she said. “It includes both.”

Was she for real? Her expression didn’t reveal even a sliver of amusement.

“I see it as a way to prolong an animal’s life,” she explained. “I know it might seem a little strange, but trust me. When I bring my collection over, you’ll see how wonderful it is.”

He gulped. “Your collection?”

“Yes, I have a huge collection. Squirrels and racoons and a couple of cats that I found. Strays, you know. Lots of people think they have time for a pet and then they just dump them. I even have a fox. She’s a real beauty. I was thinking we could put her in the living room. Or maybe the foyer, so she can greet guests.” She clapped her hands together. “Baroness Sasha Foxington III would absolutely love that.”

Baroness. Sasha. Foxington the fucking third.

Was he in a nightmare right now?

All I want is to play hockey on the Ice Knights, instead, I'm in a viral video for all the wrong reasons and my mom--yes, my mom--has taken over my dating apps. Then, when I think it can't get any worse, the fates deliver Zara Ambrose, a five-feet-nothing redhead with more freckles than inches and who'd rather be anywhere other than on a date with me.

Now a bet with her friends and my PR nightmare have us both stuck in this go-on-five-dates-with-the-same-person hell situation. But if we band together, we can get the whole thing over with and go on with our lives. It's perfect! No feelings. No future. No fuc-- *ahem* fun. No naked fun.

What could go wrong? Nothing--as long as I remember the rules. Don't notice the way she looks in a dress. Don't react when she does that little shivery sigh thing whenever we touch. Don't think about the fact that she's never had a toe-curling orgasm that wasn't self-delivered and just how badly I want to change that.

Five dates--that's it--and then we go our separate ways. At least, that was the plan.

 

A delightful read! Kicking off a new Ice Knights hockey series, Avery Flynn brings her signature spunk to life with a set of unlikely-to-hook up characters who are stuck going on dates through a dating app. The hockey action was a bit light, but the characters were fresh and lots of fun to watch get into one mess after another. Well developed characters, funny dialogue and lots of spice made this a really enjoyable read!

When pro hockey player Caleb Stuckey finds himself in the middle of a PR nightmare, he has to suck it up and take one for the team in order to get himself out of it and back on track before the season starts again. Turns out Lucy the PR queen has cooked up a plan with none other than his mother to help him save face and make the fans not turn on him. How embarrassing is this going to be? His mommy is going to choose a date for him while controlling his dating app? C’mon!

Zara Ambrose doesn’t need a man. She’s doing just fine in life on her own, and has no use for the things they bring … or don’t bring … into her life. If only her Dad wasn’t guilting her into a favor at the same time that her BFF decides it’s in her best interest to blow off some steam with a date … make that five dates … with some hockey stud. Just what she needs!

PG - Teaser 2 AN

Excerpt:

“So why are you on Bramble?”

She took another small bite from her roll before answering. “My best friend is blackmailing me, and my dad wants a SAG card.”

That was definitely not the answer he’d been expecting. “And I thought my reasoning was twisted.”

“I’m sure it all makes sense in Gemma’s head,” Zara said. “She thinks I work too much and need to loosen up. She’ll let me be her plus-one to go meet a collector if I do the Bramble five dates thing. And my dad? Well, let’s just say he’s never met an unlikely plan he didn’t think he could pull off.”

All the possibilities this created sped around inside his head until one broke free like a perfect fast break late in the third period when the game was on the line. All he had to do was put the biscuit in the net.

“So neither of us really wants to be here,” he said. “We’re each other’s solution to getting back to our regular lives as soon as possible.”

It was fucking perfect. Petrov’s job with the team would be safe for another season—well, as safe as he could be, considering he didn’t have a no-trade deal in his contract.

Zara, though, didn’t seem to be seeing the genius of it, going by the suspicious look she gave him as she took another bite of her roll. Instead of giving him a straight-up no, though, she started eating. The words—okay, begging pleas—were bubbling up inside him but for once, he kept it in lockdown. He wasn’t about to rush this play, no matter how it had every nerve in his body jinglejangling.

Finally, she used her napkin to wipe the corners of her mouth, straightened her spine, and looked him dead in the eye. “We’d have to have ground rules.”

“Sure. Whatever you want.” Ice Knights season tickets? He’d make that happen. A photo op with her dad’s favorite player? Done. Whatever it took, he’d do it.

“This isn’t a real or fake relationship, it’s a temporary alliance,” she said without an ounce of humor in her tone. “I’m not pretending to be your girlfriend or the random chick you’re banging this week.”

“Agreed.” All of that sounded like it would cause more problems than it would solve anyway. “I’ve got a condition. Dressing up is not required. I’m not putting on a suit.”

The best thing about the off-season was not having to strangle himself with a tie multiple times a week just for a bus ride to the rink or a plane trip to another city. Coach Peppers was old-fashioned about doing things the original way.

“Fine.” Zara held up three fingers. “The third stipulation is that I’m not putting on a good attitude. If it’s been a crappy day, I don’t have to pretend to be a manic pixie dream girl.”

He snorted. “No one who’s met you would believe that. You’re a little salty.” That was putting it mildly based on her attitude when she showed up for their date.

“I have my reasons.” She added another finger, so she was holding up four. “Oh, and no making love. Sex?” She paused and looked him over quickly. “Maybe. Emotional, heartfelt, staring-each-other-in-the-eyes making love? Not gonna happen. No offense, but you’re not my type.”

What the hell? Not her type? He was a professional athlete making millions. He’d been led to believe he was everyone’s type.

“Not a problem, since I don’t think we could see eye to eye while having sex unless you magically grew a foot,” he said.

“You’re not into being creative?” Zara rolled her eyes. “I guess that’s expected for someone who has probably had women throwing themselves at him for years. You haven’t ever had to work for it.”

Caleb had no idea what to say to that. He’d been punched square in the face by the most feared goons in hockey and it hadn’t knocked him as senseless as this little five-foot-nothing of a snarky woman had done with a few choice words.

“I have one more rule,” she said, reaching for another roll. “Five dates and we’re done. Period. Do we have a deal?”

About Avery

USA Today bestselling romance author Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip.

She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staff knew her by name.

Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.

Now that she’s had a taste, she’s not ready to let go… of him, or the future they could have together.

When the past comes knocking, a son Jared never knew about turns everything upside down. Renee is no stranger to plot twists, but the stakes are higher than ever this time. This is one game Jared doesn’t want to lose, but can they score a happily ever after?

About the Author:
Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she’s called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She’s never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she’d probably choose the west coast.

Kat’s a typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max). When she’s not writing, she’s either scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible. She hopes to retire there one day so she can spend her days writing books on the beach.

Kat has been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985. Since then she’s been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles.

As you can guess from her series, the Las Vegas Sidewinders, Kat loves hockey. She is also a freelance hockey writer, covering her favorite team, the Florida Panthers, and any other teams that have an interesting story. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There’s something enticing about hockey players and romance…

Parker Knight was going through the motions… and then he met her.

Parker Knight lived and lost his dream. Now he works for his family’s business, wearing a suit and pretending to be happy. A weekend away to plan a corporate retreat turns into a revelation when he lays eyes on Emily Stevens, the sexy owner of a small inn that’s seen better days. One look at Emily and the run down bed and breakfast and suddenly Parker has a purpose. He turns his short stay into a longer one, intending to act on the intense chemistry and desire that runs hot between them. While there, he plans to give Emily and her father’s inn a much needed infusion of cash and manpower.

Coming off an emotionally abusive marriage, Emily has an immediate bias against suave, city guys … But despite the slick exterior, Emily discovers Parker is sweet, charming and eager to help. And when she caves to their incredible passion, she discovers he makes her feel just as good in bed as out. Yet no matter how hot they burn or how well they mesh, Parker’s time with her has an expiration date. And Emily has an ex who refuses to accept that their relationship is over.

Parker isn’t a man who gives up. Sweet, sexy Emily Stevens is his chance to reclaim his life. He wants to take care of this woman who makes him feel … everything. If only he could figure out how to merge his two lives, everything would be perfect. But when her ex makes his move, Parker realizes what’s important. He only hopes he isn’t too late.

 

A fast-paced tale of grabbing life’s second chances! He thought he had his chance years ago at love and living the dream … she thought she was marrying forever. Life happened. He was left without a dream to pursue anymore … she was left disillusioned and bitter. Meeting each other opens their eyes to what life still has to offer … they just need to reach out and grab it with both hands! Fun characters, a fulfilling story line and an ideal happily ever after.

Parker Knight lost his dream years ago, then dusted himself off and got to work with his siblings at the swanky family business. He has an okay life, but it’s mostly going through the motions of what’s expected of him … until circumstances bring feisty Emily into his life!

Emily Stevens came home to lick her wounds after an emotional abusive marriage to the wrong guy. She knows the Bed and Breakfast that her Dad has his heart set on keeping is just a money pit waiting to crumble, but she’s not sure how to make him see the truth. Until Parker sets out to help!

Excerpt:

“I like the dreamy look on your face.”

“It isn’t often I’m thrown into a good memory of my mom,” he admitted.

More often than not he thought about the bitter ones of his dad and his lack of attention, his many wives, and losing the one parent who loved him unconditionally.

“Do you know the key ingredient that differentiates a Snickerdoodle from a sugar cookie?” she asked.

He shook his head. “Can’t say that I do.” That memory escaped him.

“Cream of Tartar. It’s a leavening agent that gives the cookie its signature tangy flavor and chewy texture.”

“She made them every Christmas,” he said, hearing his own wistful tone. “We left them out for Santa.”

Emily smiled at his memory. “I’ll make them for you one day if –“ She shook her head.

If you’re still here went unsaid.

“Can I take this to mean you’re not mad at me anymore?” he asked, leaning in on one arm.

She poured the brownie mix into the pan and sighed. “I was never mad at you. At first I was just scared to death. Then I was frustrated with dad and the situation. You being here, supporting his dream doesn’t help. But I’m not angry at you.”

The heaviness in his chest eased. But he was going to throw her an even more difficult question. He wasn’t sure if he expected an answer and given he didn’t know if he could answer in return, it wasn’t exactly fair.

“Okay then, good. What about before we came back? Are you still running from what we felt?”

She’d stuck a chocolate covered finger into her mouth and at the question, her eyes opened wide. The question had been bad timing on his part because his dick hardened at the sight of that finger in her mouth. He wanted her lips wrapped around his cock.

But, they had important things to discuss. “Running?” she asked on a squeak.

He pushed himself to standing and strode around the island, coming up to her and pushing her back against the counter. “Running,” he confirmed. “Not physically but emotionally.”

“I can’t let myself get too attached to you, Parker. You’re leaving. Sooner not later. Just because we don’t discuss it doesn’t make it not true. I need to protect myself.”

Her words sliced through him because they were true. Because he hated them. Because she was right and he didn’t want her to be. So he did the only thing he could do in the moment.

“But we have now.”

“Just because we leave the party doesn’t mean the night has to end.”

Rancher Xander Currin won’t commit to anyone after tragedy broke his heart. But when his feisty ranch hand Frankie Walsh puts herself at risk to secure her future, his protective instincts kick in. He offers her a ticket to the rich and connected at the Texas Cattleman’s Club gala. But soon combustible desires consume them both…and someone’s going to get burned.

 

Great characters with lots of steam! With the next book in the Texas Cattleman’s Club: Houston saga, Joanne Rock brings a very likable couple to life while uncovering more secrets in the series. The sexual chemistry was spot on and they were a joy to get to know. I would have liked to have seen a bit more of her story told and seen them enjoy life together a bit longer at the end, but overall it was a great book and I hope to hear more about them further in the series. Loved it!

Ranch hand Frankie Walsh has been crushing on her boss for awhile now, but never in her wildest dreams did she expect him to actually take an interest in her. Accompanying him to a Texas Cattleman’s Club gala is a dream come true … and the way the night plays out is even better!

Xander Currin has been holing himself off from the world since a tragedy left him questioning everything around him. He feels more alive in Frankie’s company that he has in years, and that’s not something he’s finding easy to ignore!

Excerpt

“Frankie, wait.”

Touching her had been a mistake—he knew it as soon as soon as his fingers landed on her sleeve that he wanted to linger. To glide his hand up her arm and around her shoulder to draw her closer. But he could hardly yank his hand back like he’d gotten scalded without revealing just how damned much she affected him.

So he let his fingers rest lightly where they were.

“I was hard on you tonight. Let me at least walk you to your door so I can tell myself I made an attempt to be a gentleman.”

“You’re my boss, not a gentleman,” she argued, then frowned. “That came out wrong. What I mean is–.”

“But as you pointed out earlier, we’re not on the clock tonight.” His fingers grazed her bare skin on the underside of her wrist, a surprisingly tender spot where he could feel her pulse thrum fast.

Her green eyes were wide in the glow of the dome light.

“Right.” Her voice was all rasp and no substance. She cleared it. “Okay.”

He slid his hand away and stepped out of the truck, walking around to her side.

He reached up to help her down, but she hopped out on her own. Wary of his touch? Or stubbornly proud?

Maybe a little of both. She was an intriguing woman.

“Thank you.” She chewed her lower lip and peered up at him in the moonlight. “What time will I see you tomorrow?”

His gaze zeroed in on her mouth, his own suddenly dry as dust.

“I’ll pick you up at seven.” He was already questioning the wisdom of this bargain he’d made with her.

If she was affecting him this much now, what would it be like tomorrow night when they had a whole evening together? Already, the memory of the feel of her made his hands itch to touch her again. He hadn’t thought this through well at all.

She nodded, her dark braid sliding down her shoulder. “And, just so I’m clear, will we be off the clock tomorrow too?”

Was she flirting with him? Or was he reading too much into it because he wanted her?

The tension of holding himself back was quickly knotting his shoulders and they’d been together less than an hour.

“I’m going to let you make that call. You can tell me how much of the evening you want to be business and how much should be…” He couldn’t think of any way to say it that didn’t sound like a come on. “Pleasure.”

She must have heard it too, because her lips parted in soft surprise.

“Good night, Frankie.” He was already imagining her in an evening gown and liking what he saw.

He played a dangerous game letting his thoughts wander there, but he’d be damned if he could stop himself.

And with a silent nod, she pivoted on her boot heel and disappeared inside her cabin.

I’m kind of a lady, but definitely more of a weirdo.

Hearing the woman at the table behind him say that to her friend should’ve turned Logan Gibbs off.

It doesn’t. In all honesty, it only makes him listen harder.

He’s had enough weird in his life to last a lifetime. The last thing his complicated life needs is a woman in it who has no clue what color you get when you mix yellow and blue together.

Yet, her obvious blonde moments aren’t enough to deter him. Nor is her lack of finger-painting skills.

I’m a cop, not a miracle worker.

Hearing the man in the group behind her say that should’ve had Katy Roberts running away as fast as her feet would carry her. Katy’s father’s a cop, and it’s hard enough to live her life with Daddy trying to dictate her every move. She needs another cop in her life like she needs yet another thing to go wrong.

To add onto that, she can’t find a job, has no love life to speak of, and has to be the oldest known virgin in Kilgore, Texas.

Yet, when she sees his painting—a painting that resembles a piece of the male anatomy more than the lighthouse they were supposed to be painting—she knows that she has to give him a chance.

The very last thing the two of them expect is for her father and his boss to force them to marry after an eensy-weensy accident. An accident that, surprisingly, both of them want.

 

A fast paced, steamy, unputdownable read! Lots of familiar faces show up in the kick off of Lani Lynn Vale’s Kilgore Motorcycle Patrol series. The characters are quick to grab a reader’s attention, and though their relationship happens quickly, the connection between the two makes it feel believable. Lots of sass, a touch of suspense and a whole lot of yummy goodness! Looking forward to more in the series.

Police officer Logan Gibbs has a penchant for getting into trouble, so his newly appointed motorcycle patrol stint is kind of his last chance before he’s booted out the door by the boss who just doesn’t like him. If only he wasn’t accidentally lusting after the boss’s daughter to top it all off!

Katy Roberts is starting a new job and life is looking up until finding out that her maniac ex is soon going to be out in the world again sends her reeling into panic attacks and night terrors. Good thing the studly cop upstairs has decided to keep an eye on her. It doesn’t take any time for sparks to fly and flames to ignite!
