Synopsis

 

 

Tensions rise, secrets grow bigger, and passions run deeper—and hotter—in Last Light, the second novel of the Night Owl Trilogy from bestselling author M. Pierce.

Matt Sky is missing. After a solo ascent of Longs Peak that left only a large blood stain, tatters of climbing clothing, and the tracks of an animal in the snow, he is presumed dead.

Hannah Catalano is guarding a secret: she knows Matt is alive. After Matt’s memorial service, she lingers on the East Coast with his family, but it soon becomes clear that his brothers’ motives are less than gracious. Nate Sky is bent on tracking down the author of Night Owl, a book that charts the last days of Matt’s life with uncanny and scandalous accuracy, and which appeared only after his death. Seth Sky is bent on getting Hannah into his bed.

Hidden away in the woods, Matt and Hannah strive desperately to maintain their ruse and their relationship—but their web of lies only tightens as Matt struggles with the consequences of his decision, and Hannah tries to escape Nate’s libel suit and fend off Seth’s advances…until Hannah is put in danger, and Matt must make a life or death choice.

excerpt

 

    Matt insisted on carrying me to the bathroom. I hugged his neck.

            “Matt, you realize I can walk with a black eye, right?”

            “I’ll be the judge of that.” He set me on the counter and I squeaked; the marble was frigid under my bare bottom. He dropped one of my bath bombs in the tub and watched it fizz and color the water purple.

Once, I managed to convince Matt to use a bath bomb with me. It was called a “sex bomb” and it was supposed to “put us in the mood” with “exciting scents” and “natural pheromones.” I grinned at the memory. As soon as Matt realized the bomb was coating his skin in sparkles, he leapt out of the tub ranting about “looking Twilighty” and “smelling like a girl.”

            “What’re you grinning at?”

            “You.” I smiled. “And this bath, which is such a transparent effort to avoid saying goodbye. Sweet… but transparent.”

            Matt frowned and paced the small space of the bathroom. Ha! I was right. Matt planned to leave me in the tub and slip away.

My poor, adorable night owl—he really had issues with goodbyes.

            “No,” he mumbled. “Maybe…”

            “Can I induce you to stay a little longer?” I uncrossed my legs deliberately and spread them. Matt watched. He folded his arms and tilted his head.

            “How does your cheek feel?”

            “They’re cold.” I grinned.

            “And you say I’m bad.” He slid me off the sink and turned me. I watched our reflection through the patchy steam on the mirror. Matt—God, he was so tall, and the look on his face was arresting. He wanted me. I knew that look.

AFTER DARK_Cover Ebook

Title:   After Dark (Night Owl Trilogy Book #3)

Author:   M. Pierce

Release Date: March 24, 2015

Genre:   Contemporary Erotic Romance

 

 

In the final novel of the Night Owl Trilogy from bestselling author M. Pierce, can a passion that has withstood many ordeals become a love strong enough to last a lifetime?

At twenty-nine, Matt Sky is trying to return to normal, having faked his death and come back to life. He and Hannah move to a simple house in the suburbs, and strive to grow their relationship into something durable and honest. They become more and more entangled, in the best ways possible.

At twenty-eight, Hannah finally has the life she’s always wanted: she’s pursuing her career as a literary agent at Granite Wing Agency, she is writing her first solo novel, and she is living with her hot, passionate lover. For the first time, Matt and Hannah are able to explore intimacy without inhibitions—without lies, secrets, or jealousy—and the results are explosive.

Still life together is not as easy as it seems. Matt is estranged from his brothers in the wake of his cruel stunt; Seth Sky, embittered by his failed pursuit of Hannah, makes a play for Hannah’s sister; and the topic of Hannah’s novel—her relationship with Matt and the Sky family—is driving a wedge between her and Matt. The lovers are devoted to one another, having come through many ordeals, but is their bond strong enough to last a lifetime?

I lived it, I didn’t just read it, although I was VERY happy to be on this side of the book. *phew* I may enjoy the fictional thrill and I may like it crazy at times, but I’m very content on the “safe” side of life.” — Maryse, Maryse’s Book Blog

CAPTIVE IN THE DARKCaptiveBoxset

SYNOPSIS
Caleb is a man with a singular interest in revenge. Kidnapped as a young boy and sold into slavery by a power-hungry mobster, he has thought of nothing but vengeance. For twelve years he has immersed himself in the world of pleasure slaves searching for the one man he holds ultimately responsible. Finally, the architect of his suffering has emerged with a new identity, but not a new nature. If Caleb is to get close enough to strike, he must become the very thing he abhors and kidnap a beautiful girl to train her to be all that he once was.

Eighteen-year-old Olivia Ruiz has just woken up in a strange place. Blindfolded and bound, there is only a calm male voice to welcome her. His name is Caleb, though he demands to be called Master. Olivia is young, beautiful, naïve and willful to a fault. She has a dark sensuality that cannot be hidden or denied, though she tries to accomplish both. Although she is frightened by the strong, sadistic, and arrogant man who holds her prisoner, what keeps Olivia awake in the dark is her unwelcome attraction to him.

 

 

WARNING: This book contains very disturbing situations, dubious consent, strong language, and graphic violence.

 

 

SEDUCED IN THE DARKSeducedBoxset

SYNOPSIS

BOOK TWO OF THE DARK DUET
The exciting, titillating, and action-filled conclusion to Captive in the Dark.

 

What is the price of redemption?

Rescued from sexual slavery by a mysterious Pakistani officer, Caleb carries the weight of a debt that must be paid in blood.

The road has been long and fraught with uncertainty, but for Caleb and Livvie, it’s all coming to an end.

Can he surrender the woman he loves for the sake of vengeance?

Or will he make the ultimate sacrifice?

 

Quote:
It seemed to Caleb, the nature of human beings revolved around one empirical truth: we want what we cannot have. For Eve, it was the fruit of the forbidden tree. For Caleb, it was Livvie.

 

 

EPILOGUE:THE DARK DUETEpilogueBoxset

SYNOPSIS

I’m writing this because you begged. You know how I love the begging. In fact, you probably know too many things and know them far too well. Who am I? Well, that’s what I’m trying to figure out. I was a whore in my youth, a killer since my adolescence, and a monster as a man. I am the man who kidnapped Livvie. I am the man who held her in a dark room for weeks. But, most importantly, I am the man she loves. She loves me. It’s quite sick, isn’t it? Of course, there’s more to our story than can be surmised in a few short sentences, but I’m at a loss for justifying my behavior back then. I assume if you’re reading this, I don’t need to make those justifications. You’ve already made your own. You’re reading this because you want to know about the rest of the story. You want to know what happened that warm summer night in September of 2010, the night I met Livvie at The Paseo. It was the night my life changed all over again. It didn’t happen exactly as Livvie said. She’s been very kind to me in the retelling of our story. The truth is far more…complicated

The Unraveling Of Raven by Theresa Sederholt Book Blitz & Giveaway


 


Book: The Unraveling of Raven

Goodreads BookLink

With the spotlight now focused on Raven, her past is threatening her future. So, she does what she does best—run!

Can anyone survive?

 

 

 

Josie's review

 

4 stars

 

After I read the blurb to The Unraveling of Raven, I was very interested in getting my hands on it. Once I started reading I could not put it down. I thought the author really did an amazing job with the characters in this story as well as the overall development of their relationship. I loved that the author gives readers a love story that isn’t all about sex but Theresa also throws in secrets, danger and betrayal. I did not who to trust or what was going to happen next.

 

Raven Anderson is a very complicated character with an even more complicated past. Despite her complicated past, her character is strong, unique, secretive, sassy, feisty, caring and courageous. She has been living behind the scenes and keeping a low profile since a very young age. At the age of 27 she finally has some stability in her life and she is comfortable. She loves her job teaching 2nd grade students and has an amazing roommate and best friend, Marco, that she has been friends with since high school. Raven and Marco live a very structured, organized and simple life. While running late one morning she accidentally spills her coffee all over this beautiful man.

 

Jax Phillips is CEO of Raiders. A company that takes over businesses that are going under. He is a billionaire, and HOT!. Instead of being upset that his shirt has gotten ruined by this lady with the violet eyes, he is captivated with her and wants to know more about her. He spends that morning speaking to the barista in Starbucks, to the veteran on the corner anyone that give him a name and nothing else. Fate has plans for Jax and Raven. They are both stunned to see each other when he goes with his nephews to “Bring your Parent to Class Day”.

 

Jax is a total alpha male when it comes to Raven. He is determined to convince Raven to go out with him. After his relentless and dominant pursuit, she gives in and over time the two develop a relationship. Let me just say, Raven is skeptical of being a relationship because that means she will have to reveal her past and she is not sure Jax can handle it. Holy smokes not only is Jax gorgeous, but the man is HAWT in the SEX department. I kid you not, keep some dry panties handy because it gets really steamy. Jax is a target because of his billionaire status. When threats start to stream in targeting not only Jax and his family but also Raven, the demands are not adding up. Jax, Raven, Marco and Jax’ security team needs to find out if the threats have anything to do with Raven’s past.

 

This is where the author switched the plot from just a love story into an amazing suspense novel. The author threw in so many twists and turns that it kept me constantly guessing. I was questioning everyone in the book because whenever I thought this person was a good character – BAM – the author added a twist. I didn’t know who to trust. I was literally biting my nails up until the last page of the novel because I needed to know what was going on. I can’t wait to find out the rest of Jax and Raven’ story, as well as some of the other characters. This is one nail biter you don’t want to miss out on.

 

 

 


Excerpt

“Follow me,” she whispers, grabbing my hand. She leads me to the washroom off the kitchen and locks the door.
 
“Now, Jax, you’ll do as I tell you, because after all, I am the teacher.”
 
I nod, “Yes ma’am!”
 
She rubs her delicate hands under my shirt, and my cock has jumped to attention—he’s such a greedy bastard. She brings her hands back out, reaches for and slowly unbuttons her blouse.  She lifts each one of her breasts out of her bra.  I go to reach for them, and she backs away.  
“Did you forget that I’m the teacher?  You have to do what I tell you.” She rubs each one of her nipples until they are hard.  Throwing her head back, she licks her lips.  It’s taking all I have just to watch.  She undoes my pants and my cock springs to attention. “Sit down.”
 
I hit her with my Jaxson smirk, “If I don’t, will the teacher punish me?”
 
She moans, “Jax, is that something you want to find out, right now?”
 
I sit down and my head is level with her chest.  She opens my legs and gets on her knees between them.  She takes my cock in her hand, and it takes everything I have to control myself from just ramming my cock in her right now.  Oh, Sweet Jesus. She takes me in her mouth; it’s so warm.  She licks up and down and then around.  How the fuck does she go so deep?  She finds that spot, just under my sac, presses, and just like that, I’m losing it.
“Oh fuck, baby, deeper . . . bare your teeth for me.”  I growl, “Fuck—harder!”
That’s it!  I’m coming from the depths of my soul.  It’s endless and she takes it all.
When she finishes, she places my cock between her breasts, rubbing up and down. Oh, fuck all that’s holy; I’m hard as stone, again!  She takes off her bra, tossing it onto the floor.  She gets up, taking her jeans off real slowly, and then she slides her knickers down. She stands before me in nothing but heels.  I know I’m growling as I try to reach for her.  But she backs away, shaking her head.  She takes the clip out of her hair, letting it cascade down, brushing her nipples.  She slides her hands down her chest, playing with her nipples.  Then she continues sliding her hands down and reaches between her legs.  Her head tilts back as she dips her fingers deep into—what I like to refer to as—my cock heaven. .  She lets out a low moan and I think I could explode just from watching the show—giving herself pleasure the way I do.  What a lucky bastard I am!
 
“Oh, Jax, oh, baby. . . so good.” I’m fighting with myself not to touch her.  She takes her fingers out and slips them into her mouth.  Fuck, this is so erotic. I don’t know how much more I can take. “Jax, I’m so wet for you.” She puts her finger in my mouth and I taste her arousal.  Sweet Jesus! She straddles me and slowly, lowers herself onto my cock.  I’m back in my happy place.  It is the most beautiful place in the world.  She starts riding me really slow. “Jax, you’re going to make me come really, really hard.  Do you feel how wet I am for you? Just for you, baby, and your wonderful cock.” Wow, she’s picking up my habit of dirty talk, and I’ve got to say, it’s beautiful . . . just fucking beautiful.
 
“Raven, look into my eyes.” Are you there yet?”
 
She leans in. “Almost, baby. Play with my nipples, please.” She doesn’t have to ask me twice.  I nibble each one and that’s all it takes.  She’s falling, and I’m right behind her.  Her forehead is rests on mine, and she clenches my cock like an iron fist.  I think I will definitely have to thank her Pilates instructor! She kisses me long and slow.  “Jax, are you feeling better now that you’ve been to cock heaven?”
 
Hmm. “All better, baby, and you?”
 
She smiles.  “I’m good now, but I hope no one missed us.” We get cleaned up and sneak out with the hope that no one was looking for us.

Tara's review

 

4.5 stars

 

I have been waiting for more of the Quick and Dirty Series since I read Dirty Little Lies . I loved it and I could not wait to see how things would turn out for Stevie and Gabe. See my review of Dirty Little Lies here

 

~~~~~~~~~~

Gabe is engulfed in working on a super secret surprise for Stevie, which has thrown a wrench in their hot and steamy sex life. Things finally start to turn for the better on day 9 of their dry spell.

 

“I take a long, lazy lick from the forbidden zone all the way up to her clit.”

 

When Gabe’s late night snack is interrupted by Stevie’s best friend and her sister. Stevie puts a plan in place to try and get them back on track. What once brought them together at Venus, is what she thinks will reignite their fire.

 

 

Stevie approaches Gabe with an idea to attend the annual Halloween party at Venus. Hoping for a passion filled night of lust and play, they attend the party and get much more then they bargained for.

 

~~~~~~~~~~

 

I absolutely loved this super quick read, the characters are engaging, and the storyline flows really well. It is written in a dual pov format that was so easy to follow. There is a little bit of mystery to this one, which I really enjoyed. The only thing I would want more of is SEX!! There was not nearly as much as the first installment, but what was there was freaking HOT!!!

 

There is a 3rd part to this story coming in December, and I can’t wait for it!!!

Do yourself a favor and read this super sexy short series.

Vanquish by Pam Godwin Blog Tour & Giveaway

Vanquish Banner

 

 

Vanquish Cover

 

 

Synopsis

 

Warning: Graphic sex and violence. Age 18+ only

It is recommended to read after Deliver, but it can be read as a stand-alone.

 

Her life is like a prison cell.

A self-made, to-hell-with-the-free-world existence that locks from the inside.

Stop judging. Her agoraphobia doesn’t define her. It simply keeps her safe.

 

He belongs in a prison cell.

The 6×8, make-me-your-bitch variety that locks from the outside.

But he’s free. To hunt. To take. To break.

And he just found a sexy new toy.

 

Capturing her is the easy part. Her fucked-up mind, however, makes him question everything he does next.

But he’s a determined bastard. If all goes his way, this will hurt like hell.

Josie's review

 

5 stars

 

I have read books by this author and really enjoy her writing. After reading the first one in this series I was completely captivated with Josh and Liv. I will admit I was not a fan of Van but when I saw he was going to get his own book I jumped at the chance to read it hoping that my mind would be changed. Ms. Godwin writing style is one that keeps me engaged and completely invested. The characters she creates are complicated, hung up and totally lovable. In this series, in this book particularly, the author had me falling in love with these characters that are damaged, psychotic and perplexing. For instance, if you read the first book or even if you didn’t, the author details all the evil, disgusting and messed up things Van did. Honest to god, I did not think there would be anything redeeming about this man. However, somehow Pamela changed everything. I absolutely fell in love with Van.

 

Van is dangerous, ruthless, vicious and psychotic. We learn a lot about his dark past in this book. Van has murdered, been involved in sex-trafficking, he has abused physically and sexually, and has held people as slaves. A year after the sex trafficking ring fell apart he becomes obsessed with Liv Reed; his first slave that he kept captive for 7 years. He knows she will never forgive him for his part during those 7 years. He does not want to punish her or to harm her. She has something he wants and she is the only person that can help get it. Van stalks Liv for months, listening to her every word, following her every move, waiting and wanting the one thing that will make his life complete. One night, while stalking Liv he sees Amber Liv’ strange neighbor. The one with a beautiful body, nice tits and looks like she is about to faint.

 

Amber Rosenfeld has suffered from a slew of disorders but for the past 2 years she has not step out of the confines of her home. She suffers from agoraphobia, OCD, panic attacks and low self-esteem. She relies on Zach a local boy to deliver her mail and groceries twice a week. One night, one missed visit changed her world and brought Van the monster to her door.

 

Van is struck with something he has never felt before with Amber. There is something in her that calls out to him and he wants to be with her, to fix her, to keep her. After all the woman he broke down, Van thinks if he can fix Amber she just might be able to help him with his new goal. Amber has some serious issues. I felt really bad for her and my heat broke for her. Van was harsh in his tactics, but to Amber he was the lesser of her demons. Amber should have feared Van but for some reason a need within her did not. She craved him and she found his presence fascinating and reassuring. I loved how slowly and over time, the two become obsessed with each other and no longer obsessed over other mundane things. Amber becomes all that Van can see, hurting her and seeing her in pain does not cross his mind. He just wants to see her smile and hear her laugh and Amber sees the real man Van is. She does not see the monster that he thinks he is. She does not judge him for his past. He wants to be a better man and make things right.

 

This story will gut you, I will not lie. Van and Amber are broken souls, damaged with so many issues but the author manages to help them find comfort, support, love and compassion in each other. They both needed each other to be that person they always were. They just needed the right person to push them. I will admit Van’s methods are not typical, they were cruel and doctoral but Amber flourished under his care. She has this mental picture that she is ugly. Where she cannot have sex with the lights on and she has to have clothes on. Over time Van tears down those fears she holds close and she starts seeing herself in his eyes.

 

For me, Van’s fight for redemption was the roughest. He had a lot to atone for. I think the author did an amazing job with his character because she took us inside his past and his mind and we were able to see the fight he had within himself to be a better man.

 

I really enjoyed Vanquish. The author did an amazing job in redeeming a character that was really in my book unredeemable. The road to redemption is entrancing, bleak, gritty and painful. I have totally fallen in love with Van and Amber and will not forget them, they truly touched me.

 

 

 

 

teaser 3

 

 

excerpt

 

He stalked toward her, mirroring the tilt of her head, knees and shoulders loose, and his gaze holding her prisoner. A breath away, he paused, soaking in the subtleties of her tipped-up chin, parting lips, and glossy but resolute eyes.

 

With the next breath, he launched, hands on her jaw, fingers spread around the back of her head.

 

His elbows dropped, shoulders raised, and he yanked her to him, lifting her on tiptoes, guiding her mouth, taking it. His grip twisted through her hair as he drew in her upper lip and shoved her against the fridge, following her with the weight of his body.

 

The kiss went fucking wild, their lips mashing in a frantic battle. His tongue plunged her mouth, attacking, thrusting in and out, possessing her movements, owning her. Breath for breath, lick after lick, he ate at her mouth, tasting, devouring.

 

He dropped his hands to her breasts, squeezing ruthlessly as he rolled his cock against her cunt.

 

His tongue tingled, his skin burned, and his head swam. God, she was a drug, and he was so fucking high.

 

She gripped his biceps, bit at his lips, and threw her arms over his shoulders, her fingers scratching the fuck out his back. He shuddered, loving it, but he was in control.

 

Reaching back, he grabbed her wrists and slammed them above her head. Their bodies ground together, his forearms pressing hers to the fridge, their tongues dancing and clashing. Chest-to-chest, hips fused together, he flexed his ass, dry humping her like a horny teenager.

 

Jesus, fuck, he didn’t care. He wanted her.

 

He leaned back to study her face and found strong smoldering eyes, sharp breaths, and swollen wet lips. Whatever she saw in his expression made her mouth chase his and her fingers curl around his hands. They kissed endlessly, fueling the fire and pushing his control long past the point of discomfort before pulling back and starting all over again.

 

When he broke the kiss with a hand on her jaw, they panted as one, mouths open and so close their bottom lips brushed. She peered at him through lowered lashes, and he stared back in awe. What trembled between them wasn’t an if? Or even a how hard? Those were foregone. The question they shared was simple.

Debbie's review

 

3 stars

 

The story is told in Hallie’s POV. She is a single, 22 year-old nurse that just started working in the ER at a hospital after finishing nursing school. Hallie has some self-esteem issues and a lot has to do with being burned in relationships before.

 

   “If watching guys from afar was an Olympic sport, I would have a gold medal.”

 

 

She meets two guys shortly after starting at the hospital. “The games Sean and Ryan were playing at the seminar have me believing I really wouldn’t mind having a hot guy at me side. Maybe someone will realize my lady parts are in fact not broken and ready for some action.” Hallie and Ryan have an instant attraction for one another and although she has a hard time believing Mr. Hottie wants her she decides to take a chance and pray things work out.

 

I loved Ryan. He told it like it was and wasn’t afraid to express exactly what he wanted and was feeling. He was sweet but also had that hot alpha thing going on too. I just wished the author would of given more time for the relationship to grow. It felt a little too rushed and I didn’t feel the connection between the two.

 

“Hallie, I don’t know who gave you such shitty self-esteem, but I want to punch him in the face. You have got to stop doubting me,” he says with defeated sigh and shake of his head.”

 

After a tragic turn in events, Hallie is forced to make some changes and learn to let go and move on. She leans a lot of her close friend Alex. I loved their relationship. He was funny but really cared for Hallie’s wellbeing. He supported Hallie but also let her know when he felt she was going down the wrong path. The banter between these two was fantastic.

 

The book flowed really well, although I would have loved it if Ryan and Hallie’s relationship took longer to grow it kept my attention and I plan on reading the next one to see what happens.

 

“Sean has come into my world for a reason, just like Ryan. These two men have altered the course of my life as I continue to discover the woman I want to be.”

The song ends and we’re left in the middle of the dance floor staring at each other. Neither of us makes a move to say anything else. Why can’t I just say yes like any other normal girl would? 

One of the bartenders is on the small stage announcing a drink special and something about a band starting in fifteen minutes. I’m too busy looking into Ryan’s eyes to really care about either of those two things right now. Before I have a chance to get my words of acceptance out, Ryan decides to end the moment. 

“Think about it, about what I said. It’s just a date and I don’t care if we do it like everyone else or not. Well I care how we do it but that isn’t important right now.” The heat in his gaze makes me take a step back, not because I’m not feeling it, but because I am feeling it. I’ve never had a reaction quite like this one before. I’m quickly figuring out Ryan isn’t like most guys and I think he’s just the adventure I need to help break out of my shell.

Does everything really happen for a reason? 

Hallie Dawson is battling with a broken heart yet determined to give love a second chance. Once again, time isn’t in her favor. Her moments After the Pain are filled with promises of a better future and personal secrets. With mysterious notes continuously haunting her and a secret friendship with a fellow musician, Hallie is struggling to stay true to her heart. 

Tall, dark and handsome, Sean Thomas, is tired of being second best. This time, the good guy refuses to finish last. If he wants to get the girl, he’s going to have to confront the one person who broke his heart. His past is on a collision course with his future – will he be able to hang onto his connection with Hallie? 

After the Pain is a Contemporary Romance novel about restoring faith in the beauty of love. Can Sean put the pieces of Hallie’s heart back together? Will love conquer all, or will jealousy and secrets tear them apart?

 

 

 

Debbie's review

 

4.5 stars

 

This is the second book in the series. I liked the first book but this one I absolutely loved. It picks up right where the first book left off.

 

After the tragic events that rocked Hallie’s world in the first book I was glad to see how she matured and was able to move on with her life in book two.

 

“I’m willing to embrace the thought of another happily ever after as daunting as it may seem.”

 

All the characters were back in this one but unlike the first one this one I really connected with them. Alex, her gay best friend was funnier than ever. I loved the relationship he and Hallie had.

 

“What’s the big deal? She’s my best friend. I’ve helped her out when she needed me. Nothing sexual,” Alex pleads. “I’d be more interested in what you have than her, trust me.”

 

Let’s talk about the main man in this book, Sean. I loved everything about him. He was sweet and thoughtful but, OMG!!! He was a total hottie!!!! I really felt the connection and love between Hallie and Sean and let me say this book had some seriously steamy parts that had me wiping the drool off my kindle

 

 

“I don’t know which I should be more concerned about, the fact that you keep ring pops in the same drawer as your condoms or why you picked tonight to ask me this, but I’ve waited so long for this moment I don’t really care. Hallie, you’ve been my girl since the first day we met.”

 

“I’m a complex guy. You haven’t had the full Sean experience yet.”

 

“We aren’t over. Not by a long shot. I’ll go get my damn ring pop if I have to.”

 

This book had a plot twist I was not expecting but it added a nice layer to the story. The author did a fantastic job with this one and I must say I loved everything about this book. I started this one and finished it in one sitting because honestly I could not put it down and needed to find out what was going to happen next. I look forward to reading more from this author.

“Wow, babe,” Sean says when he gets out of the shower. I should thank him for the compliment but I’m enjoying my own view right now. His towel is slung around his hips, taunting me. I want nothing more than to yank on the small corner holding it in place. I keep my eyes locked on his and can physically see the second he realizes my intentions. 

“Hallie, what are you doing?”

“Exploring.” When I reach him, my hands untuck the corner of the towel, sending it falling to the floor. My hands start at his broad shoulders making sure to touch every single velvety inch of skin in front of me. I place my lips on his chest, sucking up the water droplets left behind. “Shit, baby. Your mouth feels incredible.”

Despite being the illegitimate daughter of a Chicago Mafioso, Willow Kensington hasn’t exactly lived the life of a gangster’s progeny—she hardly ever speaks to her father.

Until the day after her 18th birthday, when Willow is abducted by a group of sex-traffickers.

Before he can safely extract himself from the violent band of criminals, his loyalties are put to the test, and Ethan ends up getting in much deeper than he ever intended.

Despite the heinous acts he’s witnessed and partaken in, Ethan knows their only means of escape is playing out his original scenario—even if a pair of accusing gray eyes might be haunting him for the rest of his life. Even if he’s not so
sure he’s one of the good guys anymore. Even if she makes sure everyone knows he isn’t.

Her salvation could be his downfall.

He’s determined to save her anyway.

BLURB

Even salvation can be delivered through the love of the damned…

Beauty can be a curse.

Faith can be a cage.

Only love can set you free.

A few long weeks after being reluctantly ripped from the comforting embrace of her sacred prophet’s religious commune—the only life she has ever known—a terrified Delilah is thrust into a world enveloped by evil and swimming in sin.

Steadfastly devout in her faith, and retaining the deep belief that her soul is innately tarnished as a branded ‘Cursed woman of Eve’, Delilah is determined to find her way home to her people in The Order and away from the corrupt and damned outlaw motorcycle club—The Hades Hangmen—who hold her at their secluded compound for her protection—a ‘protection’ she strongly resents.

Delilah yearns to return home, convinced that only amongst her own people, and under the holy guidance of the Lord’s revealed prophet, can her Satan-spawned soul be truly saved. Conditioned her entire life to believe she is a witch… a life-long temptress… the devil’s whore… Delilah increasingly resents her beautiful face, her shapely body and her sensuous effect on men. But when a man of the motorcycle club—a deeply sinful yet stunningly beautiful man—is charged with her care, Delilah begins to see that this dangerous and moralless sinner from the ‘outside’ may offer her something she did not know could truly exist: unconditional love.

Kyler ‘Ky’ Willis loves his life: a daily abundance of brotherhood, liquor, the freedom of the open-road and—best of all—his pick of hot women. Raised a biker brat and now VP of the most notorious MC in the States, Ky has no shortage of club sluts warming his bed; a situation he takes full advantage of… until a certain blonde enters his life… a gorgeous pilgrim-blonde he can’t get out of his head… a pilgrim-blonde he and his club recently-rescued from some backward religious cult… and a pilgrim-blonde he’s been ordered to keep the hell away from and his whorish hands off.

When yet another in a lengthy line of drunken blunders forces Ky to reluctantly take charge of the pilgrim-blonde’s care, he realizes that there could be more to this woman than just supermodel looks and a stacked set of tits. He begins to see that she could be the woman who could do the impossible—tame his wild ways and capture his reluctant heart.

But the unyielding bonds of Lilah’s past are strong, her ‘people’ determined and, with a new Prophet in charge and hell bent on revenge, they are mightily reluctant to let her go…
