I'm his entertainment. His toy. Payment on a debt. I tell myself I hate him, but every time he walks into the room, my body betrays me. How can I want him and fear him in the same moment? They told me he'd mess with my head. Make it go to war with my body. But I didn't realize it would be complete anarchy. I should've known better. When Mount's involved, there are no rules. I will not surrender. I will not show weakness. I'll stand my ground and make it out of this bargain with my heart and soul intact. But he has other plans....

New Orleans belongs to me. You don't know my name, but I control everything you see - and all the things you don't. My reach knows no bounds, and my demands are always met. I didn't need to loan money to a failing family distillery, but it amuses me to have them in my debt. To have her in my debt. She doesn't know she caught my attention. She should've been more careful. I'm going to own her. Consume her. Maybe even keep her. It's time to collect what I'm owed.

He’s a mystery. An enigma. His very identity is a secret buried beneath layers of deception. He’s also an addiction I can’t shake. An attraction I can’t fight. And then I found out exactly who he is - a man more dangerous than the devil himself. Now I need him in order to save everything that matters to me. I have to pull back. Protect myself from the danger that haunts his every step. Which would be easy...if I could stop myself from falling in love with him.

Being labelled a player never stopped me from being successful with women. Until I met Truly Harbury. Truly was the first girl who ever turned me down. And she might just be the first woman with whom I ever fall in love. When an emergency means she needs my help running her family’s charity, I’m happy to introduce her to the glitz and glamour of the London business world - taking her to dinners, coaching her through speeches, zipping up the sexy evening gown I helped her pick out. The more time we spend together, the more I want to convince her I’m not a man to avoid.

Bodie and Breeze are in for huge changes in their lives. For two people who’s lives are in a rut but live their lives going thru the motions; they are tossed together when they are running for their lives. Passion and fire light up these two.

You are going to love it! The Narration is perfect for this book!

One look at Jericho Forge, and I knew the rumors were true. He was a predator, and he had set his sights on me. I knew better than to bet more than I could afford to lose that night. I knew better than to bet myself. But desperation leads to bad decisions, and I thought there was no way I could lose. I was wrong. Now I have no choice but to make a deal with the devil....

Jericho and Indy's story is filled with so much intrigue, chemistry and heat hat your Kindle and Ears (Audible) with Joe Arden, Erin Mallon doing the narration will melt. Audible's that usually take me 5 days to finish, I finished in 3. I didn't want to stop. With an ending that will leave your jaw dropped open for days. I need the next one yesterday!!!

Jane Black has written the breakup album of the century, earning her a Grammy, a huge legion of new fans, and the pressure to repeat her success. Sure, the heartbreak from her husband's unconventional abandonment might have been her inspiration, but it hasn't done her any favors in the dating department. So when Matthew Harrigan, the toughest music journalist out there, asks for an interview, Jane agrees - as long as her personal life is completely off-limits. British, gorgeous, and way too tempting, Matthew's the first guy Jane's been attracted to since her husband.

Matthew Harrigan has swept me away with his sexy British accent and abs! Elizabeth @ Carolina Chic''s Read

Let's start wit the cover... Michael Scanlon... yes please! Now you give him the absolutely sexy accent of Shane East and this is a sensory overload!

I loved the story of Jane Black the Grammy Winning singer/songwriter, who has got to have another hit record. It only took a broken heart and marriage to get the first one out of her. Enter Matthew Harrigan... Sexy British Reporter... you have the recipe for songs, right? Well this girl figures it out and gets the guy! I completely loved this story and am so glad I got to get this one off my TBR list!!!!!
