Navy SEAL Brian Lake is out of luck. Going rogue on his last mission landed him on a fast track out of the Navy - years too soon to have saved up enough money to buy the ranch he's always wanted. Without a career - or the cash to start over - Brian's options are few, until Army general Augustus Reed steps in with an intriguing new mission - a permanent one. Ignored by her absentee father, duped by thief he appointed to oversee her family's ranch, Cass Reed is done with men for good. From now on she's determined to run Two Willows herself.

Couldn't get past the voice and slow, boring pace of the narrator. Didn't finish & will skip this series as all the books have same narrator. Too bad, enjoyed other books by this author.

When Ellie's father is taken by a group of thugs planning to take his life in exchange for his debts, it's no surprise she goes running straight into the beast's lair. After all, Ellie Stevens has been her father's keeper for as long as she can remember. However, Ashland Titon isn't a man of mercy. If you owe, you pay. End of story. His unrelenting control has built his empire, and he's not going to give over that power now. But when Ellie charges into his life with her demands and possibilities of sweet surrender, her offer proves too tempting to pass up.

Gorgeous women don’t just stumble onto Ronan Cross’s remote property. But this one - vulnerable, victimized, and needing the kind of help only Ronan can offer - tells a story that makes his blood boil almost as hot as his need to protect her. Since her father’s death, Chloe Harris has become a prisoner. Her own brother, a flesh peddler and low-level player in the Denver Mafia, is forcing her to sell her body for an endgame Chloe never saw coming: control over a vast fortune. Her only way out is to run - straight into the arms of the one hard-bodied man she can trust.

I have two rules in life: first, no relationships, falling in love, or attachments; and second, no sleeping with clients of my interior design firm. Since the last guy turned out to be married, they’ve been easy to follow, until Callum Huxley, a ridiculously sexy Brit. The connection we have the moment our eyes lock scares the ever-loving hell out of me. Thank God, I came to my senses before going back to his hotel where I would’ve ended up naked, panting, and unable to forget him.

I always enjoy books by this author but the icing on the cake is the narration by Andi Arndt. She's fabulous and adds so much to any book she narrates! I have sometimes tried books by authors I'm not familiar with just because Andi is the narrator.

After Kari breaks up with her date during Beginner's Night at Club Shadowlands, she's given the option to continue with an experienced dominant. Despite her steamy fantasies about BDSM, the inexperienced schoolteacher plans to simply observe. Yet under the unyielding hands of Master Dan, she not only participates, but gives him everything he asks for. There is nothing she can hide from him. Not her passion - or her love.

BDSM is for MEN and men only. This power exchange nonsense is a bunch of crap! I'm sick of hearing when the female "may climax"! It's out & out torture. Don't care how good her orgasm is! And sometimes the Dom just leaves female unfolded if he thinks she should be punished! It's all bull!!!!

If a woman has to allow herself to be humiliated and “serve” her master and endure whateverr “punishments” to feel cared for or protected, then she,s allowing herself to be a doormat! She is constantly judged while the “master” is all knowing and all powerful? Give me a break! The DOM never takes her reasons or concerns into consideration, just goes on with administering “ punishment”. Clearly in this “lifestyle” the woman is a second class citizen!! Well, to each his own. I have more respect for myself as a person and could never take part in this crappy (for the woman) lifestyle!

I'm not new to romance stories or even ones about dominance but knowing what a hard time the heroine had in life he practically RAPED her mouth, enjoying making her struggle for breath while tears ran down her face. And this is how he treated his precious "muse"?I'll never read another word by this author!

One look at Brawn, and Becca is wondering how he’d look without his clothes. He’s also instantly attracted to her, but has sworn never to touch a human female. They just aren’t sturdy enough for the type of rough sex Brawn enjoys most. When he learns he’ll be living under the same roof with Becca, Brawn simply sees it as a chance to broaden his knowledge of humans. Hopefully he can do so while keeping his hands off her.… His good intentions go astray when they’re both kidnapped and locked together in a cage.

But when he gets a whiff of the adorable human female who has invaded his territory, he starts rethinking.
