#Menof #Honor #Series #NewBook from @marteekakarland



***NOTE*** Men of Honor: Jake is the second book in a NEW SPIN OFF of the popular Heroes: The Carver Brothers series. Come see what the wicked men of Louisville Kentucky are up to!
*****************
A warrior in a band of brothers…
Jake Carver and his brothers have found their niche in life with Hawthorn Securities. Brothers by blood and of the sword, they’ve banded together to make a formidable force. Linda Hawthorn might work for Louisville vice, but Jake sees in her the strength and intelligence to become part of their team. He also has plans to make her his own. Too bad Linda doesn’t know.

A stunning beauty in a man’s world…

Being part of an elite paramilitary force has its perks, but Linda can’t help but feel like that’s Jakes way of better keeping her under his “safe” thumb. Her first thought? Fuck that. One rash decision throws Linda headlong into Mexico and a cartel’s stronghold with Jake and the rest of Hawthorn Securities hot on her tail.

Dynamite comes in small packages…

When past indiscretions come back to haunt the team, Jake realizes his boss’s agenda involves more than simply cutting off the drug traffic to Louisville, Kentucky. Linda is determined to prove she’s as capable as the one man she can’t seem to resist. Jake already knows she’s one of his team. The only thing he must convince her of is her own worth…and just how good they can be together.



***NOTE*** This is a NEW spin off from the popular Carver Brothers series. Come see what their Louisville cousins are up to!
In the dangerous world of drugs, things can turn deadly in an instant…

Amanda Livingston is stuck in a rut with her, boyfriend, Scott Dosser. Knowing only that she’ll never be the one to satisfy him, she doesn’t suspect the true evil lurking behind his sexy smile…until it’s too late.

A battle with drug lords into human trafficking…

Former Navy Sea, Rafe Carver, was trained to not miss details and something about this couple seems…off. Instincts on high alert, Rafe digs to find the truth. Which turns out to be more than even he bargained for. Rafe will stop at nothing to keep naive Amanda alive preferably tucked safely between the sheets of his bed.

Two strong wills collide…

Rafe thought the biggest danger was the cartel, little did he envision the sultry Amanda, was as hard-headed and feisty as she was sexy. Convincing her of the dangers surrounding proves most challenging of all and there isn’t time for error or argument. Surviving each may be even more tricky than outmaneuvering the men after her.


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.

Former Technical Sargent Chase Carver hit a dark spot in life. Until a wee tot brought brightness — and her stunning Aunt Melanie –into his life. But Melanie has a darkness clouding her life as well. There’s nothing like a damsel in distress to uncage a hero on the edge! — A Hero to Rescue Me

Meet Rick Carver. Marine turned State Trouper who relishes the nice quiet life after years of combat. Who knew one simple traffic stop with a woman named Laura would turn his life more chaotic than any of the battles he’d ever seen in past missions? — A Hero to Trust in Me

Retired Seal, Steve Carver, has a motto. Live large, take charge, and never bring em home! That is until he meets Ellie Temple. The hard headed Steve stepped on Elle’s toes — and her heart. Too bad Elle doesn’t realize a Seal never gives up! — A Hero to Trust in Me

Mike Carver, Marine Force Recon, has spent a lifetime uncovering deep, dark secrets. When Zaraiah Nelson crosses his path, he knows the beauty is hiding something tormenting her soul. Mike makes it his mission to find out and soothe away her pain. Question is, how far is he willing to go to make her talk? — A Hero to Master Me

Four brothers. Four stories so intense you’ll need to turn a fan on to cool down!

Get all four books in this one fabulous collection!

#Lessons From #IRAE2017 @AngelaKayAustin @CrystalBBright @ReanaMalori @heatherraebee

 

As many of you know I recently attended #IRAE and it was a blast meeting Facebook friends and #Authors  who I cyberstalk on the regular….all craziness aside I took some notes in the Panels given this year and I came up with a few great lessons that I’m going to #Pursue .

  1. I/R  is considered to be the redheaded stepchild of Romance. We have the Potential to grow  ( and we will grow),We #readers, bloggers and authors have to be bold and get to our local library system and get them to order the books we read on kindle in their Overdrive System and in paperback so someone new can be as crazy in love with our #IR  writers.
  2. Leave #Reviews. I m uber guilty about not doing this one but if you don’t see it on my Facebook page then I m not #oneclicking or recommending my friends to buy.
  3. Report any eBooks Claiming to be #IR. What IR romance isn’t is a romance between a person of Irish nationality and
  4. #IR is not a FAD. It’s here to stay like LGBT Fiction and Erotic Romance.
  5. People have underlying Kinks so if you’re not open to one story then find another that is more your style. If you are daring like me then embrace the experience.
  6. Authors have “Reader Base” this base determines what the author’s brand is and how steamy the books are gonna be.
  7. This POINT is IMPORTANT! Support your I/R Authors, Cons and Bloggers. Share their posts on Facebook, Drop a quick review on amazon or goodreads.
  8. The Final Panels were Hot topics: Box Set, 99cent model, and KU( Kindle Unlimited)
    • One author suggested that this should be an author only panel
    • Another author said that this needed to be address to the readers in Expo
    • Frankly this topic is interesting and I needed to understand how each author felt about both Trends currently in the Romance genre.
    • This panel for me I gained an understanding as to why in Business school have in Marketing as a requirement. A big chunk of marketing is learning about the 4P’s applying them. We discussed how important it is to
      • Have goals
      • Research the best price for your product
      • To create a ” Base” your crazy fangirls/guys of readers
      • The perception of your books. (Do you want to be known as a Tiffany author/Kmart author)
      • Don’t short change your base. They are your most demanding stalkers but they want to see you succeed.

These Ladies Deserve an Honorable Mention! Thanks for being patient with me !

You can’t fight love…There’s only one thing MMA fighter Gunnar Wells is more devoted to than his career, and that’s his mother, “Queen” Elizabeth. An elegant African American woman who adopted Gunnar and his two white brothers, Elizabeth was there when they needed her, and they’ll do anything for her. For Gunnar, that means running her hair salon when she suddenly falls ill. And if that’s not awkward enough for the champion fighter, he’ll have to work alongside Eboni Danielson, the other love of his life. The one he left behind to pursue his dream. The one he’s never forgotten…

Between the salon and her volunteer work, Eboni keeps busy to keep her mind off the man who broke her heart. So when Gunnar shows up again, she does her best to stay cool—on the outside. But the more she watches Gunnar step up and help out, the less she can deny her feelings. Soon Gunnar is doing everything he can to convince Eboni to give him a fighting chance. Can she trust him again—even when old secrets and new dangers come between them once more?

~They come to me in my dreams, giving me a glimpse of their final moments. I listen to the whispered pleas. See what is shown to me. I follow the restless souls across the globe and write their stories. For closure and to provide a happily ever afterlife. But, what of me?~ Piaget

A dream led her to the South of France. This one dream would serve as the foundation to build her latest work on. A determined C.P. Rance set out to give the sad woman from her dreams closure, and perhaps, a happily ever after life. Until the unexpected happened. Piaget Torrance, aka C.P. Rance, met an irresistible man.

A woman was the last thing Val Jaymes wanted or needed in his life. Especially not that pushy American who insisted on exploring a crumbling château. Her striking resemblance to the young restless soul whom wandered the property only further complicated matters.

The sparks between Piaget and Val could not be ignored or denied. Try as they might, the two were bound by something much stronger than mere chemistry. An unbreakable love capable of withstanding time. With Piaget’s trip coming to an end, the future of their budding romance weighs in the balance. Will C.P. Rance finally pen the most important story of her life?

Rumer Wilson married the love of her life ten years ago, has two beautiful children, and what she believes is a wonderful life to prove it. But, does anybody ever control love? Her world spirals into an unfamiliar place of uncertainty for everything she holds dear, when her husband falls in love with a woman hiding secrets.

Sebastian Ortiz has loved many women. Rumer is a means to an end. He doesn’t want to hurt her, but he needs her – for revenge on the man who hurt his sister – the sister he’s protected from harm his whole life.

Neither Rumer or Sebastian could imagine what comes next…

Darkness has never looked so beautiful.

Jaidon Swanson was not the person everyone thought he was. Over half of his face and body has been scarred since he was a young child. Passed around the foster care system, he’d been rejected, belittled, cast aside and bullied for as long he could remember. Just as he began to turn inward to the darkness trying to claim him, his life changed. He met HER and he would never be the same.

Kenya Norris had loved Jaidon from the first moment she stood in front of him as a protective shield. She never cared about his scars and accepted him no matter how he appeared. Leaving him behind to attend college almost broke her. She never forgave herself for keeping her feelings a secret.

Twelve years later, these two star-crossed lovers find each other again. But everything is not as it seems. Kenya has a secret—something she fears would make Jaidon turn away from her. Jaidon has shrouded his own terrible truths behind layers of shadow and lies. Once the truth is out, will it be the swansong of their budding relationship?

**Flawless is not a story for the faint of heart. While this is a contemporary, paranormal story with lots of romance, our Hero is not your typical Prince Charming. Be prepared for the darkness that resides within.**

Lost Gods

Books in the Lost Gods Series. Must be read in order.

Zeus: Lost Gods Book 1

WARNING* This is not an erotic romance. It does however, have sex when warranted and lots of violence and cussing. You have been warned.

What if you woke up one day and found out you used to be a god? But you don’t care when you can’t save the one you love. Unless you claim your legacy and your powers, even if you have to kill your father to do it.

Ze found he would do whatever he must to make sure Kassia lived. She was an innocent.

Kassia lived her life for the last year under a death sentence. She had an end date of three months. This was her last chance to save herself against the thing killing her from the inside. Even accepting the will of a god. He could save her life but at what cost to her soul?

When survival is everything, would you do anything to ensure that you do?

Ledo Lost Gods: Lost Gods Book 2

*WARNING* This is not an erotic romance. It does however, have sex when warranted and lots of violence and cussing. You have been warned.

All the gods are dead. Long live the gods. Never forget.

To be reborn time after time knowing, remembering; each past life is both heaven and hell for Ledo. But as a son of Ares the Fates rule his life. His rebirth serves one purpose: to stand with Zeus when he faces Cronus and to die doing it. That never bothered him. He’d lived many lifetimes and knew his destiny, willingly embracing it.

But then came Aria, she too was his destiny, his reward. Both his pleasure and his pain. Protect her he would, even if it meant going against the Fates.

As a scientist, if Aria couldn’t see it, taste it, touch it or calculate it, it didn’t exist. Until the man from her beautiful dreams showed her everything she believed in was a lie. And now that she knew that, her life was forfeited.

Linc: Lost Gods Book 3

*WARNING* This is not an erotic romance. It does however, have sex when warranted and lots of violence and cussing. You have been warned.

All the gods are dead. Long live the gods. I am aware.

Linc had grown up having to kill to protect himself and his best friend. So, death and he were intimate friends. Then when his best friend turned out to be non-other than the Greek god Zeus and needed him to once again watch his back, Linc had no choice but to grab his Glock and say, hell yes.

Little did he know, he had many trials to go through to be able to help his friend. Not the least of which was helping a woman conquer her fears and not run from a man like him. But she was an integral part of his existence. He could not let her go.

Mina had resigned herself to being alone all her life. She could trust no one with her secrets, she couldn’t even trust herself. She’d been forced to kill to protect those secrets and she didn’t want to risk the one man who might have accepted them. Not after she’d almost cost him his life. Yet, help him she must. It was her destiny, she just couldn’t bring herself to believe it.

Includes a bonus chapter of Sea Bride- Children of the Waves.

One night of passion leads two lovers on a passionate journey that neither expected.

On the night that should have been her two-year wedding anniversary, Charlie Brown finds herself in a bar to drown her sorrows over her deceased spouse. One thing leads to another and she seeks comfort in the arms of a stranger.

Jake wanted Charlie the minute he saw her, but knows he must take things slow with this sexy damsel-in-distress. When his offer of help turns into one steamy night of passion, he knows he can never let her go. Too bad she disappeared from his bed and out of his life the following morning.

Three years have passed, but Charlie is never far from Jake’s mind, so to his surprise he discovers that his new employee is none other than his dream woman. Charlie is equally shocked to find herself employed by Jake’s company because now she has a secret.

This is an extended version of a previously released story.

50 Loving States, Arizona

The end of Theodora Taylor’s wildly popular Viking Wolf series begins with a story that will haunt you long after it’s done…

My Viking grandfather was a time traveling werewolf.

My Viking father was a time traveling werewolf.

And guess what?

I, Fensa Greenwolf, am now officially a time traveling werewolf. Insert all the curse words ever here.

Given my family’s history, I suppose I shouldn’t be too surprised to wake up on top of a snow-covered mountain, in an unknown place and time. But I am. Especially when, less than an hour later, I’m offered up as some kind of bizarre gift/virgin sacrifice to…

Well, I don’t know who he is…or what.

But he lives in a glacier castle with lots of shiny treasure.

Has a long, retractable, forked tongue.

And most importantly, for the purposes of this insanely epic story…

He, and only he, will claim me as his FATED MATE.

Now one thing’s for sure. If you thought the stories about my grandfather and father were sexy and bigger than life, you had better brace yourself for this giant dragon of a tale.

This year, Theodora Taylor’s wildly popular Viking Wolf saga comes to an explosive end. And it all starts with HER DRAGON EVERLASTING!

50 Loving States, Mississippi The Brothers Nightwolf Trilogy

I’m still not exactly sure how a nobody like me managed to catch the eye of a billionaire alpha prince. But Nago Nightwolf was the sweetest, gentlest, most wonderful boyfriend a poor she-wolf from a mange state pack could ever ask for…until I needed him most. Then he disappeared from my life without so much as an apology. I thought it was true love. But all he truly wanted was to get in my pants before ghosting out.

Can you blame me for never wanting to fall again?

And yeah, participating in a Chivaree–a barbaric ritual during which I give my hand in marriage, and a baby, to whoever catches me first–isn’t the most civilized way to declare I’m over the “one who ran away.” But hey, it’s not like I believe in true love anymore, so why not help secure the future of my state pack with the money a Chivaree auction will bring in?

But then Nago Nightwolf shows up on the eve of my Chivaree, determined to win me. No matter what anyone else says…including me.

I’m exasperated.

I’m furious.

But most of all, I’m scared he’ll get what he wants…only to destroy me all over again.

Are you ready to give love a second chance? Find out what happens in the latest smoking hot paranormal shifter romance from Theodora Taylor’s wildly popular 50 Loving States series. But reader: BE WARNED! This novel is so freaking romantic. DO NOT one-click unless you’re ready to have your heart hardcore warmed!

According to the law of attraction, women and men can’t be friends.

Contrary to this myth, my friendship with Coriander Phillips does not rest on unrequited love or un-actualized lust. We’ve been inseparable since the day I pulled one of her pigtails and she punched me in the gut.

She’s hilarious, fun to hang out with. Together, we’re like peanut butter and jelly, spaghetti and meatballs, wings and beer. A match made in heaven.

She’s the bomb.

Did I mention she’s smokin’ hot? I’ve checked her out…maybe once or twice. Hey, I’m a guy.

Seriously, no awkwardness, no secret yearning for our relationship to escalate beyond the purely platonic. I’m the boy friend—the loyal shoulder she cries on, the dispenser of coffee, sympathy, hugs, advice, and affection with no expectations.

Until the invisible line between friends and lovers became blurry.

Now I want more. I want her.

All I have to do is convince her we can be more than friends.

Right?

If only it were that easy.

Kenya Daniels has led a life filled with missed opportunities. Now at the age of fifty-one she’s a lonely woman with two adult children who don’t need her, a mother who needs her too much, and a job that doesn’t give her the credit she deserves. One day things take a turn towards the impossible and Kenya finds herself transported back to 1982 as a sixteen year old.

Kenya must navigate through the 80s–again, with the knowledge and experience of a fifty-year old woman, while trying to find the way back to her original time.

This Pepper Pace novel mixes humor, family, heartache and love with the twists and turns that Pepper Pace does so well. Everyone loves the 80s…unless you have to relive them.

@empetrova #99cents #Celebrating #Wyn <3

This week ONLY Hard Ridin is 99cents !!

One man by day, the other by night. With cowboys this hot, who needs sleep?

Eight months after her lover, Holden, went off to join the Alaskan fishing fleet, Laurel gave up on him and soothed her broken heart by focusing on her dream of owning a small organic farm. Now her crop is growing—and so are her feelings for Jens, the hunky rancher who owns the land she’s tending.

Behind her affection for Jens, though she hides a secret: she still aches for Holden. If Jens knew she once loved his best friend, she fears he’ll walk out on her, too.

When Holden returns to find his girl in Jens’s arms, he’s nearly crippled with jealous rage. And with fear that she’ll run away from them both unless they figure out a solution—fast. It’s Jens who comes up with the crazy-hot idea to share her.

As their three-way dance of seduction heats up, the sexual and emotional barriers fall like dominos. But now it’s Jens who’s holding onto a secret. One that could not only destroy their tenuous bond, but leave them all without a home.

Warning: Contains two sexy cowboys who want the same woman; and, in winning her heart, they discover a steaming-hot attraction for each other.

From the moment he spots the blonde bombshell in the small-town Reedy, Wyoming, grocery store, Brant Foxfire can’t help but check her out—all the way to the checkout line.

He always hoped he’d see her again, but never thought it’d be this way—with her young son in his orthodontist chair for a consultation. It’s not the boy’s overbite that captures his attention. It’s the single mom’s mouth. Her luscious lips…and that one charmingly off-kilter tooth.

Hayley Graff knows firsthand that lust doesn’t equal a long-term relationship, but Brant awakens her body’s needs in a way she can’t ignore. She’d love nothing more than to “open wide” for the sexy orthodontist, as long as he never learns the embarrassing truth.

To his delight, Brant discovers that his long-suppressed need to dominate brings out the best in the standoffish vixen. Yet her reluctance to completely let down her guard stands in the way of total bliss…until an accident exposes her deepest vulnerability.

Warning: Contains teeth-grinding desire between a spank-me-please blonde bombshell and a closet Dom who knows how to straighten her out. You may never look at an orthodontist’s chair the same way again.

It’ll take more than rope to tie down the man they love.

When Christian comes out of the bar to find a bat-wielding country girl beating the hell out of his best friend Tucker’s truck, he does the only thing he can—he flirts with her. Unfortunately, he knows her pain—he’s in love with Tucker too.

Claire plans to nurse her bruised heart alone, but inevitably Tucker draws her back in—along with Christian—and the three of them tumble headlong into delirious passion. Then she and Christian wake to find that Tucker has fled his horse ranch, leaving them to care for the animals and each other.

Still grieving the death of his fiancée, pressured to sign over mining rights to a coal company, Tucker is boots-deep in emotional turmoil. Running only sharpens his longing for what he truly wants—Christian and Claire in his bed, in the barn, and under the stars.

But roping themselves firmly inside the circle of love will take everything they have—bulldogged determination, flying fists and aching hearts.

Warning: Wrangle one heartsick cowboy, and the man and woman who love him. Throw in weeks of working in close quarters, bales of pent-up lust, and feel the burn of prairie-fire-hot desire. Now just try to walk away with your heart unbranded.

Think there’s nothing spicy beneath her vanilla shell? Brace yourself…

She’s headed for the big time…unless her heart gets stopped at the pass.

Forty-two-year-old single father Griffin Turner couldn’t have made it through colic and calving season without his mother’s babysitting services. But just when he thinks he’s got the hardest part of the infant learning curve licked, he gets devastating news. Mom is sick. And Griffin is forced to hire a nanny.

With nothing but twenty dollars in her pocket and her voice, Nola Brady wants to leave small-town Wyoming to pursue her dreams in Nashville. She answers Griffin’s ad to keep body and soul together until her big chance arrives. Love isn’t even on her radar…until she unexpectedly falls for the rough-and-playful cowboy.

Between the sheets, they’re poetry. Outside the bedroom, he inspires her to be more woman than she ever dreamed possible, which scares her enough to put on the brakes…and hit the road.

But if she thought he’d just let her leave quietly, she was wrong. Because hell hath no fury like a cowboy in love…especially one with a baby on his hip. And a ring with her name on it.

Warning: This cowboy daddy is determined to make a May/September romance work—even if he has to lay down his palm or his mouth on a round ass cheek to do it.

When faced with a challenge, it’s best to pool your resources.

Liam Mattson used to play his wife’s body like a fine violin. Until a logging accident dampened his fine motor skills and rendered his legs—and the most important part of his below-the-waist playground—useless.

If only Liam would throw himself into therapy with the same vigor he used to throw her into bed, Ivy is sure he’d fully recover. But lately she’s felt adrift, while he’s stuck in self-pity and pre-occupation with a serious threat to his logging business.

When Ward Bose returns from the backwoods, Liam isn’t blind to the heated, guilty glances between his best friend and his wife. And he takes a step he never could have taken if his legs were working—ask Ward to service Ivy in bed.

The moment the three come together, Ward’s heartstrings are tied in knots, and Liam holds them in his fist. But secrets they’re each keeping could tear them all apart…unless they can find a way to share their burdens as easily as they share their love.

Warning: Men who wield big saws know how to care of business—in bed and out.

There are no words to say how much I love this book. I wish that this book was out in print because I would stand in streets and sell this book. Even though I talked/messaged Em throughout the writing process during this book. The outcome was BETTER than I expected and she expected.


 

 Em Petrova was raised by hippies in the wilds of Pennsylvania but told her parents at the age of four she wanted to be a gypsy when she grew up. She has a soft spot for babies, puppies and 90s Grunge music and believes in Bigfoot and aliens. She started writing at the age of twelve and prides herself on making her characters larger than life and her sex scenes hotter than hot.

She burst into the world of publishing in 2010 after having five beautiful bambinos and figuring they were old enough to get their own snacks while she pounds away at the keys. In her not-so-spare time, she is fur-mommy to a Labradoodle named Daisy Hasselhoff and works as editor with USA Today and New York Times bestselling authors.

Elsa had forgotten the touch of another and had never known the feel of a man. So close to saving her brothers, the witch has returned now and is using manipulation to make Duke question Elsa’s sanity. Can Elsa stay true to her brothers or will her growing desires to know Duke cause her to break her vows?

Bia Biscayne earned everything she had, and that included her reputation, her stretchmarks, and the moniker—Judge That Effing B*tch. She was damn proud of every one of those things. A no-nonsense, straight-laced woman, her professional life was marked by orderliness that was a product of her mild-mannered temperament. And then she gave birth to her daughter, Zest, and her personal life started to resemble a mix between Looney Toons cartoon/action adventure films and science fiction. It was a good thing Bia counted a surgeon, a judge, a rabbi, a cardinal, and an orthodox priest as her friends, and that Zest counted a Texas ranger, a habitual felon, and the chick that was #1 on the International Fraternity of Mime’s most wanted list as friends, because all of them (sometimes at the same time) had been called into action to save the world from Zest’s brand of crazy.

Being the one who birthed that kind of crazy into the world, Bia felt it was her duty to contain it as best she could. She was doing a good job…until the day she got a call from a town called Mid-NFW, Georgia…wherever the heck that was. All Bia had needed to hear was “blood feud with an international crime family vowing revenge” and she was in her car dropping the hammer all the way there. Instead of the massacre she was expecting, she found a Norwegian warlord who looked like he’d been dreamed up by a comic book artist. She should be trying to thwart an international incident, yet all she could think was how many ways she could ride the Norseman’s face off.

Vasily Gu?brander could be summed up in five words: As*holish Som’B*tch of MotherF*ckerish Proportions. Just as products had warnings, ads had small print, and printed material had asterisks, every member of Vasily—and every member of the Gu?brander clan—was the type of crazy that required nothing short of full disclosure. Half berserker, half Russian, and a hundred percent WTF, sometimes even that wasn’t enough. That is why the Berserker Tribunal had an entire section of their laws dedicated to that family. Banished to Atlanta—in summer—just because everyone else was a pussy, his goal was to not get any blood residue on his sister’s jet and something that involved not killing and maiming. But you throw five people out of a jet (in midair), and suddenly you’re the bad guy. Thank goodness his friend knew people who knew people who owned a bar that was so buck wild it had an entrails detail. Everywhere that wasn’t Aghi, Norway was forsaken territory, but he was learning to appreciate Mid-NFW. They weren’t offended by anything, so while there’d be bloodshed, no one would bitch about it.

He’d planned to while away his time in the backwoods and then hightail it back to Norway, but then he met the sweetest child…and then her mother, which led him to wonder how a woman so mean could birth a child so sweet. That of course, led to him getting cussed out, and if he’d been a lesser male, killed. And while that was the sort of thing that usually led to him kicking off a massacre, all he wanted to do with Bia Biscayne was kick off his shoes, then tear off his clothes and make that feisty woman his.

Meet Taylor Montgomery, the beautiful, but disgruntle, Chicago cop. She was disgruntled, not because she didn’t love her job, but because she was fed up with the slippery politics associated with the department.

Her life was fairly simple until she encounters Victor Creed, the sexy, stop your heart, drop-dead gorgeous Governor of Illinois. The moment they laid eyes on one another, there was a fiery attraction that they were unable to suppress.

Victor and Taylor contemplated the possibility of pursuing a relationship. Unfortunately for the couple, there was no shortage of enemies. Due to the unforeseen and unconstitutional shooting of an unarmed man, Taylor must make the choice between telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, at the risk of being ostracized by the very people that she depended on for backup, or go along with the program and lie. Will the governor run in order to protect his political career? Or will he stand with Taylor as she battles the department, the media, and other unknown enemies?

It all started with a doll…

All I wanted was to be a kid,
to have fun with my friends and make mistakes.
But little did I know that my father had other plans.
A daily life lesson constantly spat in my face.

Every day, for years, I’ve been told that I’m wrong.
That I’m a mistake.
That I’m a sinner.
That no matter what, I’m an abomination.
A reminder that’s been drilled into my head;
beaten into my body and soul;
like a punch to the gut;
shoved in my face,
that what I am is a betrayal to my family.
Simply for being me. Simply for being gay.

Now, all I want is to be free from this nightmare that I’m trapped in.
To find the one that got away.
The one with the hazel eyes…
All I want is to find him
so he can save me from myself.
