Rebellious, green-eyed Eleanor never met a rule she didn't want to break. Sick of her mother's zealotry and the confines of Catholic school, she declares that she'll never go to church again. But her first glimpse of beautiful, magnetic Father Marcus Stearns - Søren to her and only her - and his lust-worthy Italian motorcycle is an epiphany. Eleanor is consumed, yet even she knows that being in love with a priest can't be right. But when one desperate mistake nearly costs Eleanor everything, it is Søren who steps in to save her.

I started this series all out of order, due to the library only having the king on audiobook. since i have purchased all the other books in the white series. This series captivated me completely, it drags you in & pulls every emotion in the spectrum from you. narration is fantastic!!

I've never been afraid of the dark...but that doesn't mean I wanted to live in it. Maybe everyone wants what they can't have, but I should've thought it over before I unlocked the door to their forbidden world. Number One is mostly silent. He watches me very carefully. Number Two is mostly gentle. But it's the other side of him I like best. Number Three is mostly reserved. It was carnal, it was sensual, and it was erotic. That's it. That's all it was supposed to be. A trip into the dark. A peek into the forbidden. I just didn't expect to like them.

Nevada Baylor can't decide which is more frustrating - harnessing her truthseeker abilities or dealing with Connor "Mad" Rogan and their evolving relationship. Yes, the billionaire Prime is helping her navigate the complex magical world in which she's become a crucial player - and sometimes a pawn - but she also has to deal with his ex-fiancée, whose husband has disappeared and whose damsel-in-distress act is wearing very, very thin.

Lexi Blake is a genius, this series is the best of its genre I have read & ive tried not to nag too much for them to go on audio. This is like Christmas I read this whole series at least twice a year, it's got everything characters complex & endearing & hot. World building is phenomenal, the adventures & sex & interactions drag you in there is no aspect of this series that is dull. I can't praise it enough, completely unique in a gender that most of the books are different versions of the same. Just like Sylvia days the mark series this is my favorite from a author more famous for her other books. I love you Lexi Blake!!! So excited for sleeper to come out

"Villains by choice." Betrayed. Melody is nowhere to be found, Liam is in jail, and the Callahan family is cracking, just as Avian Doers, the FBI Director and puppet master behind their downfall, planned. But just because they're down doesn't mean they're out. To fight back, Liam and Melody will have to put everything on the line. The kid gloves are coming off, and no one is getting out alive.

It all started with a contract signed by him, then by me, while our families watched. While my father sat silent, a man defeated, giving his daughter to the Benedetti monsters. I obeyed. I played my part. I signed my name and gave away my life. I became their living, breathing trophy, a constant symbol of their power over us. That was five years ago. Then came the time for him to claim me. For Salvatore Benedetti to own me. I had vowed vengeance. I had learned hate. And yet nothing could have prepared me for the man who now ruled my life.

I love these kinds of books but I have to say the story in this is a stellar as all Ms Knights stories. But the sex scenes were uber hot! It had to be chemistry between Salvatore & Lucia. Totally enjoyed this book I hope Dominic is as good!!

Spencer Shrike is a man with a plan. Get in. Get out. Move on. He loves Ron the Bomb, and her safety is the only thing on his mind. But life is a tricky bastard. And conning criminals for the better part of 10 years brings its own set of problems. Sure, Rook lied her way out of a sticky situation, covering for Ronin, Ford, and Spencer's crimes in the process. But not everyone is buying her story and Spencer is desperate to figure out who's in town setting them up for a fall.
