Off the court, tennis star Jason Cartwright's playboy image is taking a public beating. On the court, he's down 40-love. A knee injury is shutting down his game, and the paparazzi are splashing his love life on every magazine. A comeback is in order, but the makeover he needs to save his faltering career is in the hands of the woman he loved and left 15 years ago. While single-mom Izzy Connors sees people for who they really are through the lens of her camera, even without it, she knows Jason isn't the star he appears to be.

Sola Morte, former cat burglar and safecracker, has given up her old life on the wrong side of the law. On the run from a drug lord’s family, she is lying low far from Caldwell. Her heart, though, is back up North, with the only man who has ever gotten through her defenses: Assail, who never meant to fall in love - certainly not with a human woman. But they have no future, and not just because she doesn’t know he is a vampire, but because he is not about to stop dealing arms to the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Fate, however, has other plans for them.

Well worth the wait. Lots of storylines. That may bother some, but not me. Let's me know more is coming. I love stories with a happy ending. I was afraid of an edge of your seat cliffhanger. Nope. Some loose ends were tied up, while others were left to dangle until next time. I will stop now to avoid spoilers. Loved this book!

She thinks I'm her guardian angel. I know I'm her worst nightmare. I thought I had everything under control. Until the day I saved Maggie's life. Most men would melt if a girl like her looked at them the way she looks at me, as if I was her savior, her protector. She sees the muscles, the tats, the hero the media makes me out to be. I'd give anything to be that man, to hear her screaming my name as I showed her exactly what a Marine can do in bed, but I can't let her in. What I had to do in Afghanistan made me a monster.

Dez Burke did a great job capturing the thoughts and feelings that someone with PTSD goes through daily. Especially those who have been to war. Toby is a sweetheart, even if he doesn't believe it. Maggie is perfect for Toby. They mixed well even for being from the opposite side of the tracks. I loved hearing from the Steel Infidels and learning what's happened with each brother and their wives. Dez tied the series together with this one. Very good listen. Pepper is an amazing narrator. I've heard many people narrate and I've come to the conclusion. It's not an easy thing to do. I've watched many who have recorded how they do their craft. My hat's off to them. I enjoyed Pepper's many voices. How do you keep up with each one? Well, if you are one who listens for enjoyment, you will love this book. It has enough spice to keep your motor running and has an interesting storyline. Brava ladies!

For 21-year-old Aleena Davison, it was a life-long dream coming true when she said goodbye to her dreary small-town life in Iowa and moved to Manhattan. However, it didn't take long for her dream to turn into a nightmare. Everything from the roommate from hell to her asshole of a boss, contributed to her pain and she'd just about given up. That was...until she ran into devilish handsome, Dominic Snow.

Qhuinn, son of no one, is used to being on his own. Disavowed from his bloodline, shunned by the aristocracy, he has finally found an identity as one of the most brutal fighters in the war against the Lessening Society. But his life is not complete. Even as the prospect of having a family of his own seems to be within reach, he is empty on the inside, his heart given to another....
