Everyone’s had a summer crush. One that’s etched into your memories
so hard that it leaves an indelible mark, like a scar on your heart. For me,
that crush is my first love, Carver Edwards. I met him at fifteen at summer
camp, and for three perfect summers, he was mine.
Until the blazing heat of the
summer sun faded and reality crashed in. Carver went off to college, leaving me
trapped in my small farming town, with no way of reaching him and a problem I
needed solving.
Carver
As the senior captain of my college basketball team, all I’ve been
focused on the past four years has been playing, school, getting drafted in the
NBA, and steering clear of relationships. I didn’t want them. I had nothing to
give another girl. I’d given it already. So, I built my rep as a player, and
honed my natural ability to charm the pants off girls. It’s what I did. Who I
was. Who I am.
Until March, when a lay-up during a tournament landed me in an
emergency room, under the care of Logan Shaw – my first love. Of all the people
I could run into, why did it have to be her? Not only did my face get split
wide open, but so did the locks that held the pain I’d attempted to bury for so
many years.
Now that she’s back in my life, we must face the truth and the
consequences of our actions – even if it could destroy us. We must uncover the
truths that have kept us shackled from moving forward. That could possibly set
us free.

I tuck the corner of
the towel a little tighter between my boobs and step out of the bathroom,
quietly tiptoeing around the corner to see what’s going on.
I’m stunned when my
eyes land on a very familiar pair of latte-colored irises. Holy shit. Carver is standing
in my living room, whooping it up with my roommate. And he’s an hour early for
our date. What kind of parallel-universe is this?
Forgetting all about
my attire, I step into view and clear my throat to gain their attention.
Wrong move.
Carver’s head pops up
and his eyes slowly rake over me with a look that I can only describe as
unfiltered desire. My knees may even wobble a bit. My stomach does an
Olympian-sized flip.
Having Carver’s
lust-filled eyes peruse me from head to toe is unnerving. But makes me feel
insanely good. The way he makes me feel is better than chocolate-caramel ice
cream. Better than a hot bubble bath on a cold, dreary Seattle night. Just
better than anything else I know.
I don’t miss the
dimple that makes an appearance as the corner of his mouth tips up into a
smirk.

Sweetness 
 
I’m the girl from the school of
hard knocks.
 
 

 

Nothing has ever come easy for me. So forgive me
if I’m a bit reluctant about Kincaid Griffin – born-with-a-silver-spoon in his
mouth, conceited college hoops player. A guy who could get any girl he wants,
and yet, is suddenly everywhere I am trying to woo me. The more I protest, the
more persistent he becomes. 



 

 

I’m a lucky bastard. 



 

 

Let’s face it. As a college athlete, I don’t
chase girls – they come to me. I’m as arrogant and cocky as they come, getting
nearly everything I want, whenever I want. But there is nothing sweeter than a
girl who plays hard to get. And Ainsley Locker is so full of confidence that
she knocks me off my feet from the moment I meet her. She’s a challenge. And I
like challenges. So I go full-court press to win her over. 



 

 

But when a stupid mistake turns
viral, slam dunking all over my life in a media frenzy, my spot on the team may
be in jeopardy, along with my shot at winning the girl. 
 
 
Sweet Girl 
 
Kylah
I’ve always lived in the shadows
of my athletic older brother and my charismatic twin sister. And that’s okay by
me. I don’t mind being known as the shy wallflower. The gawky geek. The sweet,
virginal girl. Well, that’s one label I’ve been trying to shed since starting
my freshman year in college this year. The thing is, no one’s ever looked twice
at me.
Until I met Van Gerard.
He notices me. He looks at me and
seems to like what he sees. He understands and listens to me. He’s become a
great friend. The problem is, I don’t want him as a friend.
I want more.
But my brother – along with a
state line between us, and oh yeah, Van’s long-time girlfriend – are just a few
complications getting in the way of what I want.
Van
I thought my senior year in
college would be the best time of my life. I’m a starter on a Pac-12 basketball
team, set to graduate with a degree in Finance. I have a girlfriend whom I’d
planned to start a future with. I thought my life was already mapped out.
But then the bottom dropped out
with a confession I never expected to hear, from the girl I thought I knew.
I thought wrong.
Luckily for me, Kylah Griffin was
there to break my fall. She’s the best thing this year has given me. She’s
helped me through a devastating blow that could have sent me reeling.
I know she wants more, but I’m not
sure I can give it. Now that I’ve been burned, I don’t think I can go there
again. Kylah’s not a hook-up, and she’s definitely not a rebound. She’s a sweet
girl who deserves more than to be friend-zoned.
If only things weren’t
so complicated.

When you’re in love with your best friend’s wife, whose side do you take when everything falls apart?

Secrets will be revealed, including the horrifying truth about why Lily stood him up, and that she didn’t abandon Adam. Adam abandoned her.

Coming Home is the first book in the Copper Creek series. Set in the fictional small New Zealand town of Copper Creek, the series will explore the dark secrets the town holds, including the secrets held tight by members of the Campbell family.

 


Ariadne Wayne loves books and lives in Auckland, New Zealand with her husband and two children. Having always had a prolific imagination she now writes the words down instead of storing them in her head where she can’t share them.

When she’s not writing she works in Telecommunications, frequently banging her head on the desk with the random things that can happen to the ordinary phone line.

@crzybutcutelila has #New #Release ….#BDSM #ABCList

Do you know your A, B, Cs?

The overseers of LA’s most exclusive BDSM club have a sexy new game that all members must play, and experienced sub Anna has no choice but to participate, despite the fact that she’s is only months away from being bonded.

Master Jensen knows who, and what, he wants—Anna—but when he’s assigned the first letter of the alphabet he must prove to himself, and the lovely submissive, that he’s willing to push them both to their limits, and maybe beyond.

When Anna and Jensen are forced to face the depth of their desires, and the painful origins of their relationship, they’ll learn that the worst pain comes not from a whip, but from the heart.

There’s a new game at LA’s most exclusive BDSM club, and everyone has to play.

Mae never imagined she’d be assigned to the most dangerous letter of alphabet… or paired with the most sinister Dominant in the club. The BDSM Checklist game doesn’t scare Xavier, but he prefers leather and steel, and the submissive he’s partnered with thinks silk ribbon is bondage equipment.

Pushed to her limits both physically and emotionally, Mae is shock to discover how much she enjoys Xavier’s touch. But in the end it isn’t just Mae who will be affected by the unexpected chemistry between two seeming opposites. Xavier will have to decide if he’s willing to trust the lovely sub with the truth about himself, as he proves to her that there’s a darkness in her—a darkness that just might match his own.

The A, B, Cs have never been so sexy.

Beth is the perfect sub: quiet, obedient, and well trained. After years of membership in LA’s most exclusive BDSM club she’s served many of the most demanding masters and mistresses…and she’s bored.

James is a committed Dom who enjoys nothing more than a bratty sub he can “punish” until they’re both satisfied. The last thing he wants is a serious submissive.

Beth is on the verge of leaving the club when she’s paired with Master James as part of the BDSM checklist game. They’re both surprised to find that the hyper-obedient Beth is hiding the true depth of her submission, and James will have to decide if he’s willing to break his own rules to give Beth what she needs.

There’s a new game at LA’s most exclusive BDSM club, and everyone has to play.

Cleo knew the overseers of Las Palmas, L.A.’s most exclusive BDSM club, would use their new checklist game to pair her with one of the more serious Doms. She never dreamed she’d end up with the Dom who has the power to destroy her soul—her first Master, and ex-husband, Hadrian.

Hadrian hasn’t been to the club in years. After the fiery dissolution of his marriage, he threw himself into work, doing his best to forget his beloved submissive, who also happens to be his ex-wife.

When Cleo and Hadrian are forced together once again, they’ll have to decide if they’ll play the game and explore the letter D…or if it would be easier to walk away from BDSM altogether.

A stern, demanding Master.

Aram Green knows he’s a cliche—the divorce lawyer who doesn’t believe in love—the Dom who uses structure and rules to control his emotions. He has no intention of letting the checklist game—a challenge designed by the overseers of his exclusive BDSM club—change him, or the way he dominates.

A passionate, wary submissive.

Charlie is both thrilled and terrified by the crazy checklist game. She came to BDSM because of her love/hate relationship with her body, which makes it hard for her to open herself to new Doms. But when she meets Master Green she’s drawn to the older man, who is both stern and intensely passionate.

A challenge from which neither will back down.

Determined to push them both, Master Green takes her outside the club to complete the more risky items on their checklist, a decision that brings emotion into their play. Determined to keep their relationship confined to the checklist game, Master Green pushes Charlie away. When she runs from him, he’ll have to decide if he’s willing to relax his own rules, and fight to keep Charlie even after they’re done with the letter E.

Bump and Run: A Football Encounter

When psychologist and trainer, Willa Nevels, and strong safety, Jessie Wymann, get together off field, will it be more than a little “bump and run?” Willa’s only concern is keeping her heart out of the mix.

Are you ready for some post season football?

When Death Finds You

Life Happens… No one is promised tomorrow. Mortality is fleeting, as these four men find out first-hand. But just when you have everything to lose, you can gain so much more.

Gwinn Taylor watched her father slowly succumb to death after a prolonged illness. Though he pretty much went to sleep and never woke up, Gwinn can’t find peace with it. Her mother’s statement, “When death finds me, I hope it’s like this,” aren’t Gwinn’s sentiments at all. Her life has been filled with helping causes she believes in, from affordable housing for the homeless, to disaster relief, to blood drives. She wants her death to matter to someone as much as she hopes her life does.

Since the age of eighteen, Logan Renshaw has dedicated his life to helping others. Being fire/rescue means he puts himself in harm’s way in order to save the life of another. He never thought he’d find himself on the other side of the coin. A freak accident forces him to make a choice. Save himself…or the woman he became infatuated with from the first moment he saw her.

Death has a way of finding you when you least expect it…

Gabrielle is willing to risk her life for a future away from a dying Earth, even if it means giving herself over to a man she’s never met. With her best friend Lyra, she takes the leap, volunteering to help the alien Cluath repopulate their world. Bacia is determined to end the violence on Lunar Colony 1, but when she’s captured by mercenaries, she fears she’ll be blindsided by her undeniable attraction to the handsome stranger, Jaxon.

When Lyra’s captured, Kil vows he will get her back, no matter what. Now Kil has to save his brother and protect LC1 from invasion while winning the trust of a woman who trusts no one. Drac doesn’t expect one of the mercenaries threatening LC1 to offer him a bribe he can’t refuse. Celestine doesn’t count on is falling in love with the dreaded Cluath warrior.

Their passions burn hot, but without trust will burn through them all. Will their illicit love be enough to bring down a conspiracy and save both their worlds?

Publisher’s Note: Illicit (Box Set) contains the previously published novellas Illicit Mating, Illicit Sex, Illicit Craving, and Illicit Love.

Tawni only wanted to prove herself. As sniper to her SWAT team, she was finally on the path she’d always needed to find. Until a raid gone wrong ends her in the hospital.

Nicholas, Grayson, Wyatt and Sebastian make up the rest of her team. What she doesn’t know, what they have no idea how to tell her, is that they have every intention of proving to her why she belongs with them. Not only as a member of their team, but in their lives.

Unfortunately, Tawni tends to gravitate to the wrong kind of men, dominant men who would rather hurt her than seduce her. Until she can put that part of her past aside, she can’t give herself fully to them.

But Tawni has never faced a man so intent on what he wants as these four men. Soon, she’ll come to realize she longs to take everything her four hard SWATs have to offer.

UNEDITED Excerpt from Men of Honor — Rafe: A Carver Family Romance

Just as she’d poised to take the lid off the rest of her coffee and throw it at Scott, she spotted Rafe emerging from the fog. An avenging angel. Her angel.

Arms open wide, Rafe strode toward her in long, ground eating strides. His tall, imposing frame was a welcomed sight indeed. “Amanda! I should have known you’d migrate toward the caffeine.” He never broke stride, just walked up to her and too her in his big, strong arms, swinging her around so that he was between her and Scott. Just as Scott stepped to the side to keep her in his line of sight, Rafe pressed his mouth to hers.

She was so shocked, all she could do was cling to his broad, muscular shoulders. The kiss seemed to brand her, body and soul. The simple act of pressing his lips to hers became anything but simple. When he licked the seam of her lips, she parted for him, letting his tongue delve into her mouth at will. Sensations swamped Amanda. Dizziness swept her up, feeling much like the alcohol of the night before. Which was when she realized she was hyperventilating.

When she pushed at Rafe’s shoulders, he ended the kiss, setting her on her feet, but not letting her step away from his body. “I missed you, baby,” he said in a low, seductive voice. “Come back with me. I’ll take you home later.”

“Rafe?” She needed to look up at him. Even knowing he’d done this for Scott’s benefit, she still needed to see in his eyes that he hadn’t been affected by that kiss. Shame and mortification filled her, but she couldn’t resist the magnetic pull of his gaze. With a deep breath for courage, she looked up into his eyes. Heat blazed so hot it nearly scorched her to the bones. Was that all an act too?

“Excuse me,” Scott stepped closer, reaching for Amanda’s arm. Rafe smoothly pulled her under his shoulder, keeping a protective arm around her. “Do you want to explain why you’re kissing my girlfriend?”

Rafe only grinned down at the shorter man. “She might have been your girlfriend at the beginning of the night last night, but she’s my woman now.” Rafe raised his chin a little, as if he were proud of the fact he’d just stated. “We both saw you with your other ‘girlfriend’ last night.” He made the term “girlfriend” sound childish and beneath him. Probably because Scott had used the term to describe Amanda. “Necking in the wings? That’s a bit…amateurish, don’t you think?”

Wow. The man already had Scott figured out. If anything could push his buttons, being called an amateur would.

“You better watch your mouth, buddy! I might give you a surprise or two.”

Scott loved to taunt her with how he’d earned a black belt in Karate. Claimed he could hold his own in a fight and knew ways of hurting people she’d never even dreamed about. Amanda had the feeling Rafe could handle anything Scott wanted to dish out. As if on cue, Rafe urged her gently behind him to free up his hands. Now, he lost his easy going demeanor and faced Scott with an expression so dark and menacing, her ex actually took a step backwards before he could stop himself.

“Let’s get a couple things straight. You want no part of me. You might think you do, but I guarantee you that you don’t. Second, Amanda is mine. I protect what’s mine.”

God, she loved hearing that! Maybe it was Rafe’s larger than life appearance. Maybe it was their kiss moments ago. Amanda had no idea which, but she wanted this man for herself. Sure, he’d royally pissed her off, but he’d also done everything in his power afterward to make her as comfortable as possible. Now, her mind and heart had latched onto him, imprinting his persona on her very being so that she knew no other man would ever do for her.

Fuck. This wasn’t good.

Four steel-willed men. All former military and brothers. They’d seen the worst, conquered the best, and survived each other’s sibling torments. But nothing prepared them for when love… came knocking.

Octavia Hinds, knew what hard work was. She worked at her father’s small bodega at nights and went to school in the day to become a therapist. In the midst of it she thought she met the man of her dreams in Demetrius Collias, but with a letter he shattered her life. Now he was back in the city and looking sexy as hell in his expensive suit and begging for her to forgive him. Octavia refused to put the heart on the line again, she’d barely put back together after he left. But Demetrius would not be denied, he booked sessions on her therapist couch and insisted she listen to his side.

With the truth revealed, she still was hesitant to trust him. Instead of giving up he decided to win her back with the one thing that was never an issue between them, passion and desire. She knew his feelings about her and what he wanted. And now he’d turned the tables and used the tactic she could never resist. With him in the room in her therapist chair, he wooed her with that sexy talk and she was powerless to say no.

Vince Merrick spent fifteen years in the army, protection his country and now used his hands to create some of the most delectable dishes and now was living his dream. He owned the quaint beachfront restaurant in Monterey California called Constables. He was the Chef that gave you the ambiance along with amazing food. Working at his side was his sous Chef Annalisa Torres, a transplant from New York who helped give the menu an east coast Spanish flare. With a storm raging, trying to keep the business from flooding left them trapped for the night. Vince and Anna give into a passion that was stronger than the harsh sea wind that buffeted the walls of the restaurant. But that led to a complication neither of them expected, Anna was pregnant.

He never thought he’d have a future let alone a successful business and now a family. But each time he proposed to the woman who tormented his dreams, she said no. It didn’t mean that she didn’t drive him mad with wanting her or had a problem sharing his bed. Yet the ultimate commitment seemed off the table even though they were expecting a child. It became even more complicated when her parents and brothers arrived. Her father wanted a shotgun wedding, (he literally had a shotgun) thinking Vince was the hold out in the relationship.. All Vince wanted to do was to raise their baby with the woman he loved. The problem was nothing seemed to please her parents and even when they did get hitched.

Rosalie Jasmine Domino or R.J picked the job her father hated and her mother worried over constantly. She was banned from being a cop like her dad, so instead she became a P.I. with a knack for finding missing people. Her father being a retired Lieutenant with the NYPD gave her a distinct advantage of having contacts in the police department, one being her longtime friend Detective Sean Gilead. One night after she was caught in a particularly dangerous situation, their relationship changed. After yelling at her and arresting her, Sean ended up kissing her till her senses swam and showed R.J. his true feelings. She had two choices–pretend it never happened or succumb to the feelings that he brought to the surface. Could they go from being friends to lovers, or would giving in to the heated kisses and passion lead to them both having shattered hearts?

This is A Previously Published Work…

Stasia Copeland thought she’d left Charlotte behind—the people, the ridicule, and a crime she didn’t commit. Her family didn’t seem to care either way, and being a bar manager was a lot better than being in prison. That was until a face from the past was standing in her bar, which caused everything to come flooding back. Bryce McDowell was looking for his sister who had gone missing, but she could still see the anger from the past in his eyes. He was one of the people who believed the worst of her, so when he asked for her help, Stasia had every intention to tell him no and go on with her life–until he said he would help her clear her record and her name so she’d finally be free to live her life. Stasia didn’t expect the gut wrenching need he caused when he kissed her or held her in his arms. When it was over and Kim was found she planned to leave Charlotte for good. So how could she be falling for a man who seemed to hate her when he wasn’t jumping her bones and blamed her for his sister’s downfall? Would the truth finally set her free or tear them both apart?

This Is A Previously Published Work…

Ethan Tremaine felt like he was sucker punched from the grave when his grandfather’s will was read. Find a wife and have a baby within a year. If not, he will lose his inheritance. Being known as a playboy in the media meant he could pick any model or starlet he wanted, but any woman wasn’t an option. The right person to love was what he needed and looked for. He wanted what his parents had before his mother passed and his father married his bitchy stepmother.

When his assistant Mya Spencer walked in and quit because she was pregnant and wanted to start her own business, Ethan saw the perfect opportunity to have his cake and eat it too. He always had a thing for the sexy, serious woman who guarded his office doors like a mamma lion. Being with her and raising her baby as his own seemed like the perfect solution to his problem. Building a relationship was one thing. Doing it in the public eye was different. Between his reputation and the cameras, there was his stepmother and the baby’s father all trying to ruin what he and Mya were building. They wanted money, and all he wanted was a family. Would his playboy persona cause him to los the woman he loved?

Beau Everett loved being a horse rancher and loved Wyoming in the winter. He and his twin brother Cody ran the family ranch like a well-oiled machine. After the loss of their parents, what he didn’t like was the holiday season. Merry Christmas was on everyone’s lips, and the town oozed with cheer. What he couldn’t seem to get enough of was Natasha Quinlin. She was an ebony beauty who could ride a horse in a rodeo like a champion and serve up a mean Tom Collin at the local bar and grill she owned. He wanted her to ride him like he was a prize stallion, but Beau knew he was in danger of being roped and branded by the fiery beauty.

Natasha loved Beau Everett from the time she moved to Twin Falls and saw him walking the halls of the high school. Then he was a cocky jock, and now he’d grown up into a sexy as hell cowboy that made her mouth dry. She knew the loss of his parents affected him more than anyone realized, and Natasha was determined this year to show home a few things. With her, Beau could make new Christmas memories, and that her love would be the balm for a scar that never really healed.

This Is A Previously Published Work…..

Ruby Greer needed a job and when she saw an ad at Cherry Point Marine Base for a full time babysitter, she took the entire ad with her and headed to the address. At the house close to the sand dunes of Crystal Coast North Carolina, she found Lieutenant Colonel Byron Keats and his three-month-old baby son Jason. The man was as straight laced as they came and after one look at her, he was willing to send her packing. Ruby was accustomed to being judged by her looks, a tattoo sleeve on her arm and a love of rock music generally didn’t make people think she was qualified. But after pointing out her experience and the fact that he was flying blind as a new father, she got the job.

She certainly didn’t expect to have an attraction for the older man. The way he kissed and things he made her feel was new exciting and she craved more. Ruby wanted to help him see the joys in life, a life with her. Byron was already doubtful, about the age difference and when her family made an appearance. She almost ran away. This time it was Bryon who stood with her and wanted her to fight for what they created, fight for their love. Ruby was ready to make the choice to follow her heart. But if she succumbed to the pressure of her family, she may under her father’s rules once again. Byron gave her his love and shared his son with her. Ruby didn’t want to be the one who broke his heart.
