Marleigh

One night was enough to change my life. I was taken, plucked out of my life and forced into hell. Gaining my freedom didn’t unshackle the chains around me. It made them tighten. I’m fueled by my need to avenge the wrongs done to me and those I was forced to leave behind. I’ll stop at nothing to achieve that.

I don’t need a brave knight riding a motorcycle and wearing leather to save me. He doesn’t agree. He thinks I’m a damsel in distress, but I’m focused on my task—destroying the man who ripped my world apart.

Machete

Marleigh needs to realize I’m not walking away and leaving her to face these demons alone. This fight is mine as much as it’s hers. We’ve been tracking the men who are operating in our city without our permission and we’re ready to bring them down. We’ll stop at nothing to return safety to our streets, but Marleigh seems determined to get in my way at every turn. She needs to back off before she gets hurt. She’s under my skin and as much as I want to deny it, I want to claim her as mine. The problem is she’s walking into danger and I’m not sure if I can save her.

*Warning : Contains dark emotional scenes that may trigger some readers.

 

Raw and exhilarating! With the third book in the Royal Bastards MC: Liverpool, England series we dive into the heart of the trafficking ring as the guys jump in to aid shutting it down. The characters are intense and easy to connect with. I feel like a lot was left hanging and felt a bit incomplete, but I enjoyed Marleigh and Blake and their resolution. Looking forward to more to come in the series.

Marleigh tugged at my heartstrings immediately and is easy to like and understand her heartache. She never expected to feel anything for a man again, but Blake is special.

Machete is tough and intense, but Marleigh brings out a soft side of him that no one has ever seen before.

I recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone that likes a tough and gritty MC series that takes on intense topics and weaves characters into our heart left and right.

When my ex-wife walked out our door, she didn't just take her belongings with her, she took my heart.

I was pretty sure it would never work again, but that was before my sister’s best friend showed up at my door. Beaten. In need of serious help. And my sister sent Emmersyn to me, knowing I’d do whatever I could to help.

Except doing whatever I can means getting married. Again.

We both know the score though, which means Emmersyn knows I’ll never love her. I can help protect her and our marriage secures her inheritance, but love? I’ve already ruined one woman. I refuse to hurt another.

We say I do, and almost immediately I realize spending this much time around Emmersyn will be my downfall.

I might be breaking my promise to her already.

Turns out, when it comes to love and women, I’m wrong about a lot of things.

  Captivating from start to finish! With the next book in the always entertaining Las Vegas Vipers hockey series, we are taking a jump into a marriage of convenience trope with a vengeance. The characters are both super easy to like, the development of their relationship is spot on and though there were a few plot holes that could have been filled in a bit better, I wholeheartedly enjoyed Kane and Emmersyn’s story!

Kane is an all around great guy and I enjoyed seeing him get his happily ever after that he deserved. I wanted to know more about what went wrong with the ex though, that was left a bit vague.

Emmersyn is easy to like and sympathize with. She’s a bit naive in some of the things she did in the past, but I enjoyed who she was with Kane.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone that enjoys a hockey romance with a great group of guys meshing on and off the ice as each finds their forever love while enjoying great friendships.

So when my sister’s best friend needs help and they decide a fake marriage is the best way to save her, I volunteer. I’ve had no interest in relationships since my divorce. No interest in women. I will never fall in love again… so what’s the harm? A few months of living together and we go our separate ways. At least that’s what I thought. Turns out, when it comes to love and women, I’m wrong about a lot of things.

Sleeping, unwelcome, on the couch of the woman most likely to cut him up and feed him to a gator probably isn’t the best idea.

Even if he deserves it.

Even if it’s for her own good.

Even if she makes him hotter than a Louisiana summer night.

Sexy, broody, FBI agent Spencer Landry is not leaving that couch until he knows that fiery investigative journalist Max Keller is safe.

Unless she lets him into her bed . . . again.

  Erin Nicholas keeps giving me men to drool over and I really love that about her! With the first book in the Badges of the Bayou series, we get to get up close and personal with the delectable Spencer Landry and still hang out with some of our favs down on the bayou. I really loved Spencer and Max together and can’t wait to see what else the series has in store for us! Spencer is down to earth and approachable, but he’s intent on keeping everyone he loves safe after suffering past loss. Maxine is adorably sassy and I loved her tenacity in righting the wrongs of the world. I highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys some intrigue mixed with steamy romance and downright laugh out loud moments as this close knit family continues to grow and delight.        

 

 

 

 

How do you get over a woman you never should have been, ahem, under in the first place?

Gotta Be Bayou, an all-new grumpy-sunshine, small town romance from New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas is now available!

Just when FBI special agent Spencer Landry had decided to forget about investigative journalist Maxine-Max-Keller and their one hot night together, there’s a threat made against her and Spencer’s protective instincts get all riled up. Again.

So now they’re shacking up on the Louisiana bayou and pretending to be in love so he can keep Max safe until the guy is apprehended.

Considering their chemistry and that he can not stop thinking about the gorgeous-and-doesn’t-know-it, smart-mouthed, bold-and-yet-vulnerable redhead, this could be a fun few days, right?

Nope. She’s all wrong for him.

And she hasn’t forgotten he can be kind of a jerk.

Sure, the naked-times are great, but he told her exactly what he wants— a bubbly, sweet school teacher who bakes him brownies and loves to cuddle—and Max ain’t it.

Max not only doesn’t bake, no one has ever called her sweet. And cuddling? Shudder.

Plus his bossiness is super annoying for someone who’s been taking care of herself all her life. But now they’re stuck together and dammit, besides being hot and very good with his mouth, Spencer is pretty irresistible with baby goats, little kids, and attempts at baking. And don’t forget alpha-protective. All of which makes her stomach feel very swoop-y. No wonder her clothes keep falling off.

But this is a temporary situation and they’re only faking it. So falling for the guy is a terrible idea.

She really should have kept that in mind.

Keep reading for a look inside Gotta Be Bayou!

She’d fallen asleep on him.

Literally.

Well, her feet were on him anyway. Actually, her legs from the knees down.

She’d started just propped against the opposite end of the couch, with her crossword puzzle book open on the arm. She’d mostly focused on the puzzle, but he’d noticed her smiling and even laughing a couple of times at the TV.

Eventually, she’d propped her head on her hand and just watched. Then her eyes started drifting shut. Then her head was on the arm of the couch.

But when she wanted to get comfortable, she got comfortable.

She’d scooted down to rest her head on the couch cushion and stretched out. Including putting her feet in Spencer’s lap.

He’d had to catch her heels in his hands to keep her from kicking him in the balls.

And then he’d just held her feet, rubbing his thumbs along the arches of her feet, and absorbing the sound of her contented sigh and loving the way she cuddled deeper into the couch.

He’d wanted her to feel safe and be comfortable and relaxed.

Mission accomplished.

The woman was sound asleep.

At 8:30 p.m.

The episode ended and Spencer realized he didn’t remember a thing from what he’d watched. He’d been paying attention to Max.

Of course he’d started with the way her soft cotton shorts molded to the curve of her hips and ass. The way the matching tank hugged her waist and breasts. There was no way he could have ignored that. He was drawn to this woman and the part that didn’t confuse him was his attraction to her body.

Now, having those sweet curves within touching distance again and barely covered, absolutely drew his attention. But with her asleep, and him unable to really do anything, he also had the chance to simply study her up close.

Her eyelashes were pale and had a reddish hue. Of course they did. She was a redhead. But he’d never thought about the color of a woman’s eyelashes before. Now he was fascinated. Did she wear mascara? He was going to have to pay attention to see the next time she was awake.

She stirred, shifting, moving her feet against his hands and he stroked a hand up one calf. It wasn’t perfectly smooth. There was just a slight prickle, but he didn’t mind at all. In fact, he wanted to feel that against his thighs and hips as she wrapped her legs around him. It was real and he wanted to feel her legs in every stage from freshly shaved to haven’t-had-a-chance-for-days.

Wow, she was truly asleep. He should make her go to bed.

“Max?” he asked softly.

She didn’t even wiggle.

“Max?” he asked a little louder, squeezing her foot gently.

She just breathed in deeply, then out.

He should just carry her into bed. He could just scoop her up and take her into the bedroom.

Spencer shifted her legs so he could stand. Then he leaned over. She was on her side, so he pushed gently against her shoulder, rolling her to her back. She went with a sigh, one hand moving to rest on her chest. Perfect. Spencer slid an arm under her knees and one behind her back.

And everything was great until he started to lift.

She came awake suddenly. She kicked her legs, flailed her arms, and her head lifted instinctively to look around. Her forehead hit Spencer in the chin. Hard.

His head snapped back and his teeth clamped down on his tongue.

“Fuck!” he swore in surprised pain.

“Ahhh!” she yelled.

She was still kicking and waving her arms and he unceremoniously dropped her one foot back onto the couch cushions.

“Max! It’s me!”

She kicked out, her shin connecting with his thigh.

That fucking hurt too.

“Max!” He pinned her arms down against the couch. “Max! It’s Spencer!”

Her eyes were wide and not fully focused.

She just yelled again. “Ahhhhh!”

Dammit. The cottage next door was going to think they needed to call the cops.

Which was Zander.

Spencer did not want Zander showing up here, grinning and smirking and writing up a report about how Spencer had tried to sweetly carry Max to bed and she’d thought he was attacking her.

“Maxine!” he said sharply, putting a leg across hers to keep her from kicking and, against his better judgement, placing a hand over her mouth. “Stop it. It’s me.”

Her eyes flew to his as he put his face directly in front of hers.

“It’s Spencer.”

She suddenly went still. Her gaze focused and she stopped moving and he felt her pull in a long breath.

He waited another few seconds, making sure that she realized who was holding her down.

Slowly he removed his hand. “Okay?” he asked.

She drew in another long breath and blew it out. She nodded. “Yeah.”

“Holy shit, Max.”

“What happened?”

“You were sleeping like the dead, so I decided to carry you into the bedroom. And you turned into the Tasmanian devil.”

“Well, I’m not used to people picking me up in the middle of the night.”

That made him chuckle. “It’s not even 9 p.m.”

“Well… still.”

He liked that she was at a loss for words. That was unusual.

Slowly, he became aware of the fact that he was pinning her to the couch. With almost his entire body.

In spite of the fact that she’d been fighting off an intruder in her imagination and he’d been fearing for his manhood, his eyes, nose, and jaw, it didn’t take long for his body to register that this felt really nice.

The couch was big enough for the two of them to lie together. He wasn’t entirely on top of her, but almost half of him was pinning more than half of her to the cushions.

“I, um… didn’t mean to squash you. Self-preservation instinct.”

She smiled. “You’re not squashing me.” Her voice was soft and a little breathless.

Their gazes locked. “I did this, honestly, to keep you from hurting me or yourself. But mostly me.”

She wet her lips and nodded. “I believe you.”

“So, I could probably get up now. You seem a lot more calm.”

“Funny, I don’t exactly feel calm.”

His heart kicked against his rib cage. A moment ago she’d been ready to claw his eyes out. The moment before that she’d been so deeply asleep that she hadn’t realized he was even there. But now, her gaze was hot and she was breathing fast, and she was definitely not wearing a bra with this pajama set.

Spencer’s entire body responded. “You fell asleep really fast. And very deep,” he said, his voice husky.

“I often fall asleep on the couch. Never that deeply, though. I guess I felt really safe with you.”

Damn, he liked that. He felt the corner of his mouth curl. “Until I tried to pick you up.”

“Sorry. Instinct.”

“Honestly the cop part of me is very glad that your instinct is to fight hard when someone does something unexpected.”

“Good.” She gave a little nod. “I guess that means you just need to be sure I’m expecting anything you do.”

He nodded slowly and his gaze dropped to her mouth. “Good idea. For instance, if I was going to kiss you, I should make sure that you knew that.”

She nodded. “Right.”

“Max.”

“Yeah?”

“I’m going to kiss you.”

“Good.”

Lioness. That’s the first word that comes to mind when I see the brilliant redhead selling cupcakes at the hockey arena.

With the soul of an artist and the spirit of a nomad, Bea Turner is gorgeous, quirky, and refreshing.

She’s also my teammate’s little sister.

As the Tennessee Thunderbolts' Rookie, I should steer clear. I’m here to play hockey and provide much-needed financial security for my family. To do that, I need to avoid distractions.

Bea doesn’t just distract me; she flips my world upside down. One bad joke has me pursuing her. One date and I crave more. Calling her mine? Well, now I’m dreaming of a future.

The life of a hockey player — trades, travel, uncertainty — isn’t for the heart of a creative. Bea desires adventure and possibility, not early morning skates and strict exercise regimens.

When I’m thrust into a situation at odds with Bea’s dream career, I know I can’t hold her back. If we’re meant to be, we’ll make it work. But what if we’re not?

What if my greatest regret is letting my lioness go?

 

An undeniable connection! With an absolutely adorable meet cute, Gina Azzi brings us Cole’s story with the third book in her Tennessee Thunderbolts series and I really enjoyed seeing he and Bea find their way through family drama and life’s ups and downs to make it towards that happily ever after.

Bea is just the sweetest. She’s sincere and down to earth and family is above all other in her eyes.

Cole takes dedication to a whole knew level in his commitment to hockey, and watching Bea claim her place in his life is super heartwarming.

I recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone that enjoys a hockey romance with delectable characters that aren’t afraid to bring life lessons to the forefront in their story. Looking forward to more in the series!

A wounded biker with a checkered past. A feisty dancer with a secret. An unexpected love that could destroy them both.

I was born a monster.
Seven feet tall with fists the size of balloons and an even bigger…boot size.
I’m a demon in the ring and a devil between the sheets.
But even I’m no match for her. The demoness with the bright emerald eyes and hair the color of snow.
She’s everything I’ve run from my whole sorry life and the only thing I’m afraid of, so why the hell do I find myself on her doorstep time and time again?

I’m not a good man. She should run as far as possible from me.
After doing time for a crime I didn’t commit, I took my revenge on those responsible.
It was brutal. It was bloody. It was satisfying.
Now she wants me to do the same thing for her.
But she isn’t being completely honest with me.
And when I find out the truth, there’ll be consequences for us all to pay.

*** Ares is book three in the Kings of Mayhem MC Tennessee series but can be read as a standalone. It features two emotionally wounded main characters, lots of red-hot chemistry, a twist you won't see coming—throw in some crazed serial killers, and you’ve got a scorching romantic suspense burning up your Kindle.

 

Another one bites the dust! The Tennessee chapter of the Kings of Mayhem MC just keeps getting better and better. One after another of these hard, dark men keeps turning into a marshmallow inside when they fall in love and can’t see themselves without their woman by their side. I love seeing the tough outside with a warm center.

Ares has been misunderstood and mistreated from the day he was born, but meeting Rory and falling in love with her changes his life from the first day. I loved seeing him finally get to be happy.

Rory has secrets and lies within her that come out to play quickly and leave her picking up the pieces of what she knows in life. I liked her, then disliked her, then had to like her again.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys a raw MC romance with lots of heart and sexy goodness.

It took two days for me to know Kendall was the one for me.

And it took two years for me to realize I had to leave in order to protect her.

When I walked away, I told myself it was for the best. But now we work together, and every time we’re in the same room, we end up fighting. If we didn’t, we’d end up naked. Or worse–spilling heartbreaking secrets.

If she knew the truth, she’d either walk away for good or convince me to take a second chance. The first thing would break me, and the second would break her. I can’t let either of those things happen…

 

Carrie Ann Ryan is pulling on our heartstrings with the second book in her Wilder Brothers series! With an emotional reunion of exes, we get a heartfelt enemies to lovers twist from Evan Wilder. It could have been angstier, but I loved the two of them so much that I was happy with anything they gave me. Relatable characters, an emotional journey of healing and a cast of side characters that aided in the enjoyment. Looking forward to more in the series!

Evan has been gritty and throwing up boundaries since he returned to his family fold to run the winery, but reuniting with the one he pushed away is tearing down his walls left and right.

Kendall has made a life for herself since splitting from Evan, but she never got the closure she needed to move on. Now with that on the horizon in front of her, she can’t stop from wondering what if.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series so far to anyone that likes a close knit group of brothers who are coming together after leaving the military careers they put so much of themselves into to now make a go of a family run resort.

And it took two years for me to realize I had to leave in order to protect her.

When I walked away, I told myself it was for the best. But now we work together, and every time we’re in the same room, we end up fighting. If we didn’t, we’d end up naked. Or worse–spilling heartbreaking secrets.

If she knew the truth, she’d either walk away for good or convince me to take a second chance. The first thing would break me, and the second would break her. I can’t let either of those things happen…

After spending years of his life in prison for a crime he didn’t commit, Nevin Walsh doesn’t know where he fits in anymore.

But then, his brother’s best friend, Luna Gallo, makes it her personal mission to help him settle back into his newfound freedom. He should say no. Turn her away. But there’s something about the woman who radiates sunshine that makes her impossible to ignore. And the harder he pushes her away, the harder she comes.

And what starts off as an unwanted friendship turns into something he never expects. But can Nevin let go of the hurt from his past to allow himself happiness in his future?

  Sexy, sweet and satisfying! With the tenth book in the Men of Inked: Heatwave series, we get to go along for the ride as Luna falls in love. I really loved her and Nevin together, but I felt like there were parts of her back story that were left to go flat instead of being added in to explain her or liven this one up even more. I also needed more angst from him to truly connect with his story. He just went through a decade of despair, yet I only got a small amount of emotion from him about it.

Luna comes across as sweet and settled in this book when she previously was a bit of a wild child. I found her easy to connect with.

Nevin was almost too laid back for the situation he just went through, but I really enjoyed them as a couple.

I recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone that enjoys a close knit family getting all up in each others business as each sibling and cousin finds their happily ever after as the crowd cheers them on.

After I’m arrested for throwing a raucous party, my hockey team says I have an image problem. And I need to fix it, stat.

Charity work? Check. Haircut? Sure. But I draw the line at hiring my neighbor to style me. In the first place “style” shouldn’t be a verb. And I’m tired of people who’d judge me on appearances.

Vera and I don’t see eye to eye on anything. She wants me to try on clothes, while I just want to remove hers. She's distractingly pretty, with soulful eyes and a sinful mouth that likes to argue with me.

But when management threatens my summer vacation, I grudgingly agree to Vera’s unusual proposal: she’ll give me an image makeover. But in return, she wants lessons in the art of seduction.

It sounds a little nutty, but I know a good opening when I hear it. Besides, it’s not like I’ll ever fall for her…

 

Such an adorable take on a little enemy to lover hockey action! The next book in the Brooklyn Bruisers series is a whole lot of angsty sexual tension when a problem player ends up coming up with a mutually rewarding arrangement with his pesty neighbor. Loved the characters, loved their growth as people and a couple and the chemistry between them kept me coming back for more and more.

Ian is such a misunderstood guy. I loved him from the first page and the turmoil that befell him on more than one occasion was heartfelt with a twist of humor.

Vera is sweet, sincere and a really fun character to see come into her own as she learns what love really is and what she truly deserves out of life.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone that enjoys a hockey romance with a great cast of players, spouses, friends and soon to be happily-ever-afters!

There’s only one woman I truly care about: my daughter. Until Maisy Stratford flounces into the front office of the Tennessee Thunderbolts with a heartfelt smile and a tray of baked goods.

As the Bolts’ newest hire, Maisy is optimistic, enthusiastic, and a goddess at manifestation.

Everything I’m not.

Known as Brawler, I’m a gruff, quiet, rough-around-the-edges, NHL defenseman. I haven’t dated in decades. I’ve never been married and my daughter’s a twenty-one-year-old mischief maker. I don’t know how to talk about feelings or place my trust in the hands of a woman. Even one with a heart of gold.

With my daughter Lola egging me on, I finally ask Maisy out.

But I don’t want to be her rebound; I want to be her forever. Even if I don’t know how to tell her that. Even if she’s not ready for me.

If I’m being honest, I’m not ready for her either.

 

I loved every minute of Maisy and Axel! The second book in the Tennessee Thunderbolts series brings us a powerfully driven hockey romance, but has a uniquely heartfelt older hero that stole my heart quickly. The characters are well-developed, the supporting cast is hilarious and the heart of the romance brewing between Maisy and Axel is just so sweet and sexy that you just have to be in their corner from the very start of the book until the happy conclusion. Loved them!

Maisy is sweet, sincere and so easy to like. She’s been knocked down a time or two in life and is just looking for her happy place to land. Seeing her enjoy the type of treatment she’s supposed to expect from a guy was heartwarming.

Axel is such a kindhearted guy and I loved him to pieces. It’s not unusual to see a hockey dad in romance, but this one started way young and has a college aged daughter and that puts such a different feel to their relationship that was really fun.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone that enjoys a fun-filled hockey romance with adorable characters to fall in love with.

four-half-stars




Veteran player Gage Heyward retired from the league following a successful career. Now the Titans need him, but does he have what it takes to get back on the ice and pull this team together?

After achieving the goals I set for myself, I walked away from my professional hockey career. It was a tough decision, but the right one at the time. When the Titans organization approached me about joining the team they were rebuilding following a devastating plane crash, I felt a passion for the game and a competitive spirit I hadn’t felt in years. The opportunity to make a huge difference to a lot of people spoke to me, and I accepted their offer and headed to Pittsburgh without a second thought.

Jenna Holland is also new to town, having moved from Phoenix to Pittsburgh to take a job with the Titans. Her past has left her with scars—both physical and emotional—and she’s slow to trust others. But the more I learn about Jenna, the more I want to know. The more I need to know. Because the beautiful blonde with honey gold eyes and a wall around her heart has me enamored.

My game on the ice is the best it’s ever been, but it’s my game off the ice I’m focused on these days. Because while Jenna may not be willing to take a chance, I know the potential is there for something big. Something life changing. Now I just need to convince her to take the shot.

 

The team turmoil continues to unravel! With the third book in the Pittsburgh Titans series we continue to root for this team of misfits to find a way to rally and mesh into the powerhouse we all hope they will be. The emotions are still high and the drama continues to take center stage. The main characters in this book were a joy to read and I highly enjoyed their connection and watching them develop a friendship and more as the book progressed. I felt the ending was abrupt and would have enjoyed seeing them together a bit more, but I found them very fulfilling.

Gage is so easy to cheer on. He’s likeable and engaging but mellow in his sincere love of the game and all it stands for.

Jenna is a sweetheart who I wanted to hug from start to finish. She was dealt a raw bargain, but with a kindhearted guy like Gage showering her with love, she’s beginning to see past the pain and open her eyes to what life can truly be.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone that enjoys a hockey romance with loads of drama taking place as players begin to mesh into a new team and one after another settles into life with the love of their life.
