35 year old recently widowed, 6’2, brown-haired, brown-eyed Dominant millionaire male under suspicion for the murder of his wife seeking single submissive female with a penchant for undercover work.

Dislikes: lies, politicians, and sharing.

Driven by ambition ...

She is thrilled when Nick assigns her to represent his best friend and client, millionaire Jaxon Deveroux ... the prime suspect in his submissive wife Alyssa's murder.
Seduced by desire ...
Kate knows they have only a few days to find the real killer, and since signs point to a member of the BDSM community, she volunteers to go undercover as Jaxon's submissive at Benediction--the private sex club where he is a member--to covertly investigate Alyssa's last few months. For years, Kate has kept her dark fantasies a secret ... but a chance to explore them with sexy, dominant Jaxon is just too tempting to pass up.

Tyson Ellison vs. Robert Stone

Tyson Ellison
Leaving his last foster home, Tyson Ellison signed his name on the dotted line and checked out entirely, looking for something he felt missing. Four tours of service over-seas, too much death, too much violence, brought him back stateside. He was tired, drained, and still empty with nothing left to give. He hopped on his Ducati and headed northwest from his base in Georgia, the only place he’d ever called home. Fate ran him out of gas in the tiny town of Renlend, Kansas with nothing but his Army-issued duffle holding a few meager belongings.
For two years Dianna’s father has made sure something around their family-owned Bed and Breakfast needed attention. Tyson’s attention. His handy-man skills put them in each other’s space on a regular basis, her dad pointing out the vet’s attributes regularly. She isn’t oblivious, she’d memorized each one. Tyson’s body was made for the movies, and so he kind of flirted with and smiled at her. Always managed to speak to her when he is there working. 
But in what lifetime would a ripped, tanned, tattooed Army veteran want with the shyest girl in town? Especially someone as plain Jane as her.

From Tyson Ellison
“God, Dianna, I’ve needed you for so long, love. I didn’t mean to come in here and well…I truly was just going to ease you away from the window before Drew said something to embarrass me. But, hell, I don’t know. Seeing you in this strappy sundress and cowboy boots—” He ran his fingers through her hair, down to the strap of the dress, leaving his forefinger beneath the skinny piece of material resting on her skin. “I. Geez, the good gentleman part of me knows I need to apologize, but the rest of me won’t let the words form. I need you to know how I feel, and honestly, I really want to know if you feel the same way. Drew says I’m stalking you. I didn’t tell the jerk he was right, but you’re all I think about.”

Dianna felt his warm breath against her ear, and then as he started to speak, her heart jumped to her throat.
“You’re mine now,” Tyson whispered.

“First off, Dianna Lane, I will go to drastic measures to change your attitude.” Her eyes widened, not exactly sure how to take his threat. The second one in less than five minutes. His face twisted, not hiding the smoldering heat building in his eyes. “Now, secondly, I am pretty damn sure you’re wrong. As a matter of fact, picturing you—” He let out a long wolfish breath of air through his teeth, close to a whistle. “Oh, yeah. Even better than lingerie—you very much naked with the only things on you being my eyes, my hands, my mouth—need I go on?”

“You’re a naughty man, Mr. Ellison.”  (Dianna Lane)
“Oh, love, I told you I wasn’t innocent. And I plan to make sure you know how not innocent, how not perfect, how not nice I am—over and over and over. I want to hear you. I want my name falling from your lips. But not tonight. I promised.”

Ethan O'Connell vs. Preston

Ethan O'Connell

Ethan O'Connell 32 years old, 6ft tall... well muscled and athletic. Brilliant businessman, who rocks a power suit like nobody's business. Brown hair and meadow green eyes with just the right amount of well manicured scruff. Born in Ireland, his Irish accent would melt any woman's Panties. 


Meet Preston
Firefighter, surfer and regular Aussie hottie.
Preston’s always had a ‘thing’ for his big sister’s best friend. Watching from the sidelines, he’s just been waiting for his chance to show Ella what she’s been missing out on over the past ten years.
Confident, cocky, yet a bit of a romantic, much to the amusement of his firefighting pals, he’s on a mission to prove that he’s more than a good friend. He’s savvy to Ella’s need to run and hide, and he’ll do whatever it takes to stop her in her tracks, even if it’s by dragging her out to sea on his surfboard, or capturing her in a fireman’s lift.


“When life threatens perfect, it’s time to step up and kick life in the balls.”
Ella's perfect moment was taken from her in the worst possible way. Humiliated, heartbroken and absolutely determined not to allow her heart be destroyed for a second time, she builds an ice wall around her heart.
Preston has known that he was in love with his big sister's best friend since the age of fifteen. Over ten years on, and an opportunity to be her knight in shining armour is too good to miss. Putting his heart on the line, he's on a mission to show Ella that the perfect moment is possible.
Ella's instinct is to run when she realises her feelings for her bestie's little brother may just run a little bit deeper than just friends. But if she can't run, she'll try every trick in the book to shake off his affection and realign his feelings.
She’s already had her perfect moment, and there is no chance she'll let her heart thaw for Preston. No matter how good he looks in the firefighter's Christmas calendar.

About the Author
Spending the last few years near the Queensland coast, Becca is rarely out of the sea or off the beach. Dragging her long board with her and her overworked Kindle Fire, Becca enjoys her three addictions: reading, surfing and ogling surfers, one of whom is her husband of ten years.

She can still be found regularly on the beach with her family. Becca tends to leave the surfing to her boys; she's far too busy immersed in her own writing or, of course, with her head still buried in a new read.

Sebastian Irons vs. Tripp

Sebastian Irons

“She’s everything I’m not and everything I want to be.” 
Sebastian Iron’s life is spiraling out of control. Over the course of one week, Sebastian witnesses death, runs away with his best friend’s girl, gets kicked out of his English prep school, and is banished to America by his domineering mother to repeat his senior year of high school. 
In America, Sebastian struggles to find self-discipline and a purpose to turn his life around. He meets Tess Hamilton, the only person to show him any kindness in his new school. Little does he know, she is the savior tutor hired by his mother to help him improve his grades. The two slowly begin to build a friendship. 
As their friendship blossoms, Sebastian begins to have romantic feelings for Tess. She claims to only want a platonic relationship, but Sebastian feels the undeniable spark that sizzles between them every time they are together. 
Forces beyond their control will either bring Sebastian and Tess closer together or tear them apart. 
Will Sebastian return to his old habits or find the strength to be the person worthy of Tess’ love? 

Love This Life - Book 2 Loves Great Adventure Series

“All I want is you.”
Tess Hamilton has a ten year plan—every milestone mapped out to reach her educational, career and life goals. Happy to be moving in with her fiancé, Sebastian, she didn’t anticipate a dangerous attraction to another man, a life-changing event, and a terrifying journey of self-discovery. They were definitely not a part of her master plan, and now Tess wonders if any part of her scheme will come to fruition.
Sebastian Irons is getting everything he’s ever wanted out of life. Leaving his playboy image in the past, he’s finally become the better man he longed to be when he left England and came to America. Madly in love with his fiancée and ready to start their life together, everything is seemingly perfect—until a series of unexpected events threatens to tear them apart.
Can Tess and Sebastian survive the curveballs life throws at them? Will their love crash and burn, or will they get their long-awaited happily ever after?


Covering up pain is easy. It’s keeping it tucked away that’s hard. I’ve always needed the cover of tattoos to hide the nasty past that leached its way into me, tainting me beneath my skin. 

Not the shiny, trendy tats, but the ugly broken kind, meant to keep the world at bay. If they weren’t enough, then my piercings, foul mouth and crazy hair usually did the trick. Life had taught me to never follow the rules, because when you do, you get burned.

My life was perfectly imperfect until Tripp…

Our relationship is what most would describe as fuel meeting fire. We were both hell bent on burning each other to the ground. Tripp was sexy as hell, a charismatic beast, and soon became one of my best friends. We shared a love of ice cream and tattoos as we blazed our own path that could only lead to a beautiful train wreck. 

The only question left is, will we set the countryside ablaze with our hot tempers and foul mouths? Or will we paint our own happy ending filled with all the gushy shit normal people crave?

Her determination for a future free of pain and heartbreak is put to the test when she meets–and quickly forms an unexpected bond–with Logan Tanner.

Logan has always been a free spirit, but ever since a life-changing event took place, which left him doubting the integrity of those who are closest to him, he’s taken that term to a whole new dangerous level.

When Liv walks into his world, everything he thought he knew about life and women is challenged.

Kissing down my jawline to the nape of my neck, Walker breathed, “I have missed you so much, Mags. You’re all I think about.”
I gripped his face with both my hands, pulling him to meet my gaze. “Walker, I want to forgive you.”
He sighed into my cheek, kissing just below my ear before whispering, “I don't know if it’s fate, coincidence, or my curse, but I'm still breathing and my breaths are for you.”
I took fistfuls of his black, long-sleeved, cotton shirt, pulling him as close as I could get him.  I wrapped my legs around his waist and began to kiss as passionately and roughly as I ever had.  I was hungry to taste him again, to feel him again, to simply love him again.
Right then, everything melted away—the fact that we were in the middle of nowhere in a gas station, that I was supposed to hate his guts, that he had a Hyde side of him that was evil and tortured.  In that moment, we were simply us—desperately and madly us.

Excerpt Blaise POV
Once Ember finally releases her, Leah grabs Ember and leads her down the hall.  I’m hoping Brent goes as well so I can be alone with her for even just a few seconds.
Lady luck is on my side.  I smile as Brent follows Leah and my sister to start loading Tatum’s things.  I reach out and grab her hand.  This girl…I’ve never been like this before, needing to touch someone, needing the connection.  I lace our fingers together.  I’ve missed her.  I know it makes no sense, but it is what it is.
Tatum is looking down at our entwined fingers.  She doesn’t retreat, so I take that as a good sign.  Lifting her chin I say, “Hey you.”
She replies with a croaked hi.  The crack in her voice calms me.  She feels this, too.  She has to.  This can’t be one-sided.  “Let’s get you moved,” I whisper.  To my surprise as much as hers, I kiss her forehead.  I lead her down the hall to join the others.  I don’t trust myself to be alone with her.  I gently squeeze her hand and let go before placing it on the small of her back.  I’m not ready to not have that connection with her.
