deb•o•nair adjective \ˌde-bə-ˈner\ of a man : dressing and acting in a stylish and sophisticated way : urbane, attractive, charming and confident Debonair and sexy-as-sin Tyler Sinclair has fought his way from poverty to the top as a Wall Street stockbroker. Hungry for success, ambitious for power and glory, he doesn’t have time for messy emotions like love. When his colleague is called away on business, Tyler is stuck with an intern he never wanted and doesn’t have time for. Three weeks of torture await him. 

Raised by a single mother, Brooklyn Bennett is an Australian girl who works and studies hard to achieve her dreams. She scores an internship with a prestigious firm in New York for six months. Focused on her career, she can't afford to lose sight of her goals. Love is not on her agenda. From the moment Tyler lays eyes on the girl with the golden hair, strange accent and sassy attitude, something about her intrigues him. 

Can he teach her all she needs to learn without losing his heart? Can he make her yield to him not only in the boardroom but also in the bedroom? Will a few nights of passion change the way they both feel about love . . . or is it just about sex, money and desire?   


All it takes is one look, one moment to change your entire world. For Tyler Sinclair, it was when he spotted his Golden Girl while on his lunch break. He couldn’t take his eyes off of her. If only he was able to talk to her…

Brooklyn Bennett has been in the states for three days, and she’s about to take on being an intern at a local investment firm. She has a dream and a mission to do all she can to better herself. She doesn’t want any distractions. Too bad fate doesn’t listen. There was just something about the man she saw while sightseeing…

“Something about Tyler Sinclair was intoxicating, affecting my body and my damn brain.”

As Brooklyn walked in for her first day on the job, she would have never guessed that she would come face-to-face with the one man that had haunted her thoughts just days before. Tyler, or Mr. Debonair to the ladies, couldn’t believe that he had his girl right in front of him. Now, he just needed to get her to submit.

“You’ll be getting more than you bargained for, that I guarantee you. I always make good on my promises. And I promise you will be begging for my dick, Miss Bennett.”

Lawd!! I can’t wait for the full book to come out!! I NEED more of Mr. Debonair;)

Callie Hart – REBEL


Alexis Romera isn’t ready to die. Thing is… She may not have a choice. *** The president of the Widow Makers MC is determined. The Los Oscuros cartel is going down. The one thing Rebel must do to make that happen? Keep the girl alive.  


“I never thought I would die on the streets of Seattle. I never thought I’d be the kind of person to wish fr death, either.”

Alexis thought her walk to the bus station would be a piece of cake. Boy, was she wrong. Witnessing a crime had her in the hands of a gang, and it didn’t look like she was ever going to be able to get out.

Not only was she being held by these awful men, but she was also a witness to an exchange between them and a motorcycle gang called the Widow Makers. How could it get any worse?

This short story leaves you anticipating what happens next! Goodness, how could you deal with being kidnapped? How would you handle yourself at the hands of a gang? I couldn’t imagine going through what Alexis does. She’s abused, scared, and humiliated by these men.

Can she be saved? Will she ever see her family again? Does her one saving grace belong to a motorcycle gang? We shall see…

Pepper Winters – FORBIDDEN FLAWS

Forbidden Flaws E-Book Cover

She’s forbidden. Saffron Carlton is the darling of the big screen, starlet on the red carpet, and wife of mega producer Felix Carlton. Her life seems perfect with her overflowing bank balance, adoring fans, and luxury homes around the world. Everyone thinks they know her. But no one truly does. The silver limelight is tainted the day the couple announce their divorce. 

He’s flawed. Raised in squalor, fed on violence and poverty, Cas Smith knows the underbelly of the world. He’s not looking for fame or fortune. He’s looking for a job to get him the hell away from the danger of illegal fighting, and comes face to face with the woman who ran all those years ago. Unable to turn down her job offer, he agrees to be her bodyguard and personal trainer, all while she hides her secrets. He had no intention of letting her back into his heart. 

But neither of them were prepared for what happens when forbidden and flawed collide —fracturing the world they know, changing the rules forever.  


“Fate gave me him. Not once, but twice. The first time, I didn’t know the gift I held. The second, I was too broken to deserve him.”

This book!!! Oh my gosh, I can’t wait for this to be released in full!!!
Let’s just say that the first time that Saffron Duncan and Cas Smith meet, it’s under…umm…a crazy predicament. Fire alarms in the middle of the night, a black out, and tiny underwear make for an interesting night. Poor Saffron! I mean, I would have been the most embarrassed person ever! Thank goodness for her very hot, very strong, very sexy neighbor at the hotel she was staying at.

When Saffron locks herself out of her room, Cas gives her a choice…Go downstairs in her barely-there underwear to get a new key, or spend the night with him and witness a night of pleasure that will leave her comparing all men to him. Sounds like a good plan. Especially when she is leaving for the states the next day. What harm would it do, right?

“You’ll permit a perfect stranger to use you. I’ll never forget you. You’ll never forget me. We’ll take everything from each other.”

Can I just say that I was a puddle of goo after reading this?! Cas has a dirty mouth that is hard to forget. The way he uses his body with Saffron is just hot! Champagne and ice cream never looked so good! Lawd!

“Chemistry. Just chemistry.”
“No. Not just chemistry. I’ll fight to forget about you the minute this is over, but you’ll live forever in my dreams.”

Yeah, I. Need. This. Book. Like. Now!!!! It left on such a cliffhanger, and I need to know what happens! Gosh!! So good!

Lilliana Anderson – DEEP COVER

Deep Cover Series 001 small

Some things won’t stay buried… Drake Jefferson has been missing for years. Wanted by the very people who hired him, he left behind his job, his life, and his love to pursue a career of the criminal variety Caitlin Saunders, Drake’s ex-wife and one of the AFP’s best analysts, is doing her best to move on after losing the love of her life. 

Originally a part of the team that managed Drake’s operation, she gave up her field role the day she realized he’d turned. And she hasn’t trusted a soul since. One phone call in the middle of the night will force her back to active duty - a suspect in an ongoing case has been captured and they insist they have information on Drake – they just aren’t willing to talk to anyone but her. That information will change everything she believed to be true and send her down a path that could land her in the exact position Drake ended up in.

It will take every skill set she has, just to keep her head above water as she learns that right and wrong don’t always follow the rules, and that when you’re fighting for love – there are no rules.  


“This case-that case- the case that took it all, and that I thought was over, is back on. This is the last thing I wanted.”

Caitlin Samuels lost the love of her life four years ago in a mission gone wrong. She couldn’t believe that he went rouge in the middle of a case. The same case that took his life. She has mourned all these years, and she has finally moved along with her life. She still has her great job and she has an amazing boyfriend in Gavin. Everything seemed perfect until what she always thought to be the truth wasn’t.

“I thought you were dead.”
“I almost was.”
“Where have you been?”
“To hell.”
“And back again.”
“No. I’m still there.”

I couldn’t imagine what Caitlin was feeling! Finding out that your husband was never dead, and he was hiding. Jeez. This story throws so many curve balls that has you wanting more. As soon as you think it’s going one way. BAM! It spins again.

Not only was she dealing with her supposed dead husband being back, she also has to deal with the fact that she has a new man in her life. Tensions rise when she not only has to choose between these two men, but also when she finds out more secrets and lies. I’m telling you, this story had so much in such little time! I’m so happy that the story is continuing! I need more!!!

“Looks like you’ve got a bit of a tug of war on your hands.”
“I’m not going to be the rope in that game.”
“They’re boys. They’ll fight until it’s sorted.”

“Doesn’t mean that I have to be a part of it.”

Chelle Bliss – RESISTING


I belong to no one. It’s the way I’ve chosen to live. Master of my own destiny, finding my way through this bullshit thing called life. I learned from a young age how to get my way. Being a woman isn’t a weakness. It’s the opposite. I’ve spent my life being surrounded by four overbearing brothers, but I’ve never been a wallflower. Independent and unwilling to be tied down, I grabbed life by the balls and lived it to the fullest. 

I was enjoying myself, minding my own business at my brothers wedding. Then WHAM. Ever have a man walk into your life and alter your entire universe? My answer would’ve been no before he tempted me into his bed. I’m talking about the big damn bang. Everything that I thought was right, suddenly spins on its axis and bitch slaps me in the face.


“Ever have a man walk into your life and alter your entire universe?

Izzy Gallo isn’t looking for love. She lives by her own rules. To her, men are good for two things: lifting heavy things and satisfying a woman. That’s it. No love in her future. She has loving parents and four older brothers. She even helps run a tattoo shop called Inked. No time for a relationship. That was until time stood still the moment she came in contact with James Caldo.

“You’ll be begging for my touch.”
“Obviously you know nothing about me.”

James is a friend of her oldest brother and he thinks he knows the “real” Izzy. She never has anything to hide, so why does he think he can see more than anyone else? The banter between these two is funny and sexy. James gets Izzy all flustered and that in itself is too funny. Her touch girl exterior is being broken down all because of this chance encounter.

“I’m down for a challenge.”
“Doll, there’s no challenge for a willing participant.”

Their chemistry is off the charts even though Izzy can deny it all she wants;) They were meant to meet that night. They were meant to have this moment. But what’s next?

“Sometimes, we don’t know who we really are until we find the perfect person to bring it out.”

I can’t wait to continue their story!!! Izzy is a spitfire and outspoken. James is demanding, but in an oh-so-sexy way. They have an interesting future ahead, and I can’t wait to see it all play out!!

“There was no way in hell I’d allow myself to go there again. I needed to forget James Caldo.”
“I’d let her go…for now. I knew in the end she’d be mine. A chase would ensure and I’d get exactly what I wanted…Izzy Gallo.”



In a moment of weakness, Ivy Morrison tells a lie, a lie which will leave her scrambling for a solution and quick. The perfect solution comes well-packaged in the form of broody and sinfully sexy Fox Kilpatrick, courtesy of Find Your Soul Ma...te online dating service. Desperate times is most definitely a call for desperate measures. With no other choice, Ivy convinces passionate yet possessive Fox to help her in her time of need.

Fox ‘Killer’ Kilpatrick is still caught up in his past, a past of anger and death, which his biker brothers desperately want him to recover from. Losing a bet, Killer finds himself on a blind date with Ivy, the woman who is set to turn his world upside down.
Following your heart is never easy, neither is following an unknown path, but finding out may just be worth the journey to possibility. Only together, will Ivy and Killer discover if it was worth the risk after all.


“I’ve never had a piece like you.”
“And I’ve never had anyone as hot as you, Fox Kilpatrick.”

I want to start this off by saying I looooved this story! I can’t tell you how many times I laughed out loud at the crazy antics of Ivy Morrison.

Ivy decided to try out an online dating sight just to find a date to her awful cousin's wedding. She got a lot more than she bargained for. She never imagined that she would be so taken by this tattooed, muscular, hot, biker man! Fox Kilpatrick is a member of Hawks MC Club and this dating thing is not his normal idea of a good time. But he has to win a bet, right?

“I like it when you get all flustered.”
“You do?”

The inner monologue that Ivy has had me rolling out of my chair! She’s a spitfire and she never knows when to stop talking. My kind of girl;) Being thrown into the biker world can be scary, but when she meets that whole family of brothers and their loved ones, how can she resist?This story had romance, hot sex, and lots of humor! I almost wish they had more of a story because I truly loved Ivy and Fox.

“I’m glad then, Cupcake.”
“Yeah, cupcake because you make ‘em, because you smell like ‘em, and because you taste like ‘em. You’re lucky we are out in public or I’d be demanding more of a taste from you.”

Told you it was good;) Great story!



After failing miserably at love, Roxane VanBuren swears off men but not before her determined best friend shows her all the advantages of being single. After a wild weekend full of sex, old-flames, and secrets, Roxane is desperate to forget it ever happened. But she learns it isn't that easy. Since becoming the President of VanBuren Investments, she knows how important it is for her professional and personal life to remain separate from one another. If the two were to mix, the rumors could possibly ruin her reputation, which is bad for her and bad for business. 

To avoid that, Roxane allows rules to define and guide her every move. Unfortunately for her, Parker Williams is determined to break them all, one at a time.


Roxane VanBuren doesn’t want love in her life. Her first love, her best friend’s stepbrother, ended badly and then she lost her fiancé tragically six years ago. So, she sticks to online dating just to get a quick lay, and then she moves on. Seems crazy, but it works for her.
When her best friends gets her a ticket into the hottest swingers club, how can she say no? Plus, you wear a mask. Good thing since she was the president of her family’s Investment company. No need to bring the media into it. Also, she uses a fake name to help hide her identity.

As she endures pleasure and freedom for one night, something unexpected happens. She finds comfort in a certain bartender. There is something about him that she can’t shake. Maybe it’s the blue eyes or the sinful voice. But fate wasn’t done for them yet.

“Masks. I think everyone who walks in that door wears a mask, regardless of whether their faces are covered or not.”

When they are thrown together again, it seems like maybe this guy might be worth giving a chance. Too bad fate isn’t always easy. Sometimes it throws you for a loop, and you weren’t ready for it. Parker Williams might just be the one to finally break through Roxane’s walls.

“You think you’re a closed book, Rox, but I am reading all of your f**king pages, and already have most of them memorized.”

I loved every single part of this book! The banter, the sex, the suspense of wondering what will happen next. So good! I can’t wait to see what happens next with these two!!

“Parker Williams would be the beginning of my end. Parker Williams would completely destroy me.”

Lesley Jones – REED


She was mine. Our love, unquestioned. Our futures planned. But she didn't show. All that we had, all that we meant, and after all that was said, she just didn't show. That one act from her, changed everything, but it especially changed me and from that moment on, there was no going back. No words of love, no whispered promises, just sex and drugs and rock and roll.
 No one gets a piece of Reed but what they will get is the night of their life, the chance to let go, break their own rules and the best, the dirtiest, filthiest sex ever... Along with the other four people in my bed.


“I’m Conner Reed. I’m living the dream and yet a single thought, a distant memory of a little blue eyed, blonde haired girl from Surrey can bring me to my knees.”

Reed seemed to have it all. He was gorgeous, famous, rich and the lead guitarist of the biggest rock band, Shift. Of course looks can be deceiving. Inside, he was a tortured soul reliving tragedy after tragedy. Still struggling to forget his past and the girl that was forever a memory, he turned to sex, drugs and rock and roll.

“I have to be in control and I just love to push boundaries, push people to their limits.”

He and fellow bandmate, Jet, partied hard and never cared who their next conquest was. These two had a strong bond, but it wasn’t enough for either of them.
This story was a true page turner. I was enveloped in the story of Reed and his lifestyle. I wanted to know more about him. His backstory is a hard one, but it doesn’t get any easier. My heart broke for him. My heart broke for Jet, as well. They were both such tortured souls. 

I’m anxiously awaiting the continuing story so I can find out what happens next. How can Reed move on after his world seems to keep crumbling down?

“One day, one day you’ll understand. You’ll love someone so much that It’s painful and then you’ll get it.”
“No, no I won’t. Not again, I won’t.”



When heartbreaker meets ball breaker, sparks will fly. Rockstar, Jett Vaughn, isn’t against settling down, but no woman has ever held his attention long enough for a relationship to develop. That is until he meets Presley Hart. She’s confident, opinionated and headstrong. She drives him to the edge of crazy, but he can’t deny how she makes him feel. He wants her heart, but she only wants his body. Presley’s not against giving her heart to a man, but she has too many reasons why he’s not the one to give it to. Jett isn’t a man who will take no for an answer though. He’s about to declare war on her reasons and take what he wants.  


Presley’s marriage is over. It has been for a while. She wants a change, better yet, she wants to get laid. When her best friend invites her to go on a trip, how can she resist? She’s bound to find a random guy to hook up with, right?

Enter Jett. Tattoos never looked so good, and he is just what the doctor ordered. While drinking at a bar Jett proposes that maybe he can give Presley something she needs more than alcohol. Sex addiction. Holy hell! I’m telling you, it was steaming off the pages!

“Jett, it’s fun to stand here and flirt with you, but I gotta say, I’d rather you take me back to my hotel and f**k me.”
“I thought you’d never ask.”

Told you! Hawt!! Only problem is that Presley doesn’t want a relationship, but Jett isn’t taking no for an answer. What happens when the one thing you never wanted becomes what you can’t go without? Great beginning of their story! Can’t wait to read the next one!!
