You want to know about Rhoden Richards, do you?

Well, he's a d*ck. A big d*ck. He also has a...well, you know.

Plus, he's the star quarterback for the Arcata Adders, the pro football team that my father owns. At least he is for now. That showboater's threatening to blow the season for all of us with his outrageous behavior—both on and off the field. The women, the parties, ugh. Total a-hole.

Who am I, you ask? My name is Della Garland—body blogger, big girl, and the (reluctant) fiancee of the man my father wants to sell the team to. Um, I mean, I was. And then I met a sexy stranger at a masquerade party, found myself pregnant...and discovered Rhoden Richards was the father.
I can't decide if I'm the luckiest girl on earth...or totally screwed.
I mean, Rhoden's actually kind of a nice guy once you get to know him.
But my father and my fiance, they won't let me go without a fight—and a whole lot of threats.
Why don't you read my story and decide for yourself?

***This is a stand-alone novel with a happy ending and an outrageously sexy football player. If you like your naughty stories with a sprinkle of humor and a kick-butt heroine who falls for strong, confident alpha males, pick this one up and get ready to take a cold shower after!***

One of his hands slides along the side of my face, fingers tangling in my hair as he holds me against him, taking his time and savoring my mouth like he did at the masquerade party.  It turns me on, the way he moves, slow and confident like he's got all the time in the world.  Out here, in the gentle violence of the waves, my body shaking from the cold, it feels like we should rush our way through this—whatever this is.  But we don't.  Rhoden kisses me like we're in a black and white movie, all deep and romantic and sure, but also like he's hiding chili peppers under his tongue.

A hot tingling drags through me, warms me up and makes me forget all about the salty sting of the ocean.  Behind the distant murmur and lap of water, the sound of the music drums out a steady, solid beat, relaxing my pounding heart to its rhythm.

In his music, I hear his soul crying out for me.

If I could, I'd run away from here and never look back because to tell you the truth, I'm terrified.  There are forces weighing in on me that even I don't understand.  I'm scared.  Things are dangerous.  This could get real ugly, real fast.

Lola Saints is a godsend.

But I wish she wasn't.

I don't know sh*t about her, but already, I'm hooked.

When she plays, I can almost imagine the ghosts of the dead are calling out to me.

If I could, I'd shed my soul and leave the pain of the past behind me.  But I can't.  I have to figure out if there's a way to fall in love anew and respect the old.  But something else is going on, something weird.  Something that tells me my tough luck might just run out real fast.

CRUSHING SUMMER - YA Romantic Mystery (Single Book, Complete Story, No Cliff Hanger)
Recommended for ages 16 and Up.
From the Amazon Bestselling Author of 'Losing Me, Finding You' and 'Get Bent'

"I wanted to kiss his face off.
    And I didn't even know him."

I'm a girl.  I met a boy.  Why can't it stay that simple?

Here, in this town, summer doesn't just mean tiny bikinis and sunglasses, white toothed grins and lounging at the beach.  It means pain.  And loss.  And false promises.

It means liars pretending to be saints, friends pretending to be enemies, rivals pretending to be lovers.

For me, it means being crushed.  The Crush, actually.  The one they all want simply because they were told to.  It means being surrounded by beautiful faces and gorgeous bodies, sweet words and sizzling kisses.

It means being wanted and despised.

My name is Chloe Summer, and I'm afraid that if I'm not careful, this summer could be my last.

“Tonight is Assignment Night.”  Casper remained still, listening, not at all nervous about what I was going to say.  He didn't think it was going to be bad or that it was going to affect him, but I knew it would.  Somehow, I just knew.
    “Like, for classes or something?”
    “Like, for the summer.  All summer.  Tonight, all the students, ages thirteen to eighteen, will be assigned a title.  Most of them will stay Students, but a select lucky and unlucky few will be …  Something else.”  Casper gave me a look that said I was totally and completely nuts.  Again, I attempted a smile, but this one fell even flatter than the first.  I resorted to keeping my eyes on the sea and letting my fidgety hands spin the conch around in circles.  “You know all the stereotypes people think about when they talk about high school?  Jocks?  Losers?  Party boys?  Goths?”  Casper pulled  a cigarette out of his pocket and slipped it between his lips.
    “Yeah, sure, okay.”
    “Well … on Assignment Night, tonight, people get nominated by their peers for certain … positions, and then they have to act them out until the Friday before Labor Day.  Every day until that day, at midnight, they have to be who everyone wants them to be, for good or bad.  And everyone else, the Students, they have to play along.”
    “Um, you're kidding right?  Is this some kind of game?”  My faux smiled turned into a grimace.
“I wish it were.  If it were just a game, it'd be fun, right?  But it's not.  I mean, I used to think it was, but not anymore.  People get hurt playing this game.”  I paused, not necessarily for dramatic effect, but there it was.  “They get killed."

"This is love.  It's that simple."

Some stories are Never finished being told.  After all, we're all victims of heartache and strife at some point.  Maybe I'm a little more susceptible to both, but I've got an ace up my sleeve.  I've got Ty McCabe.  He's helped me survive a lot.  More than I ever thought possible.  We've come a long way together, but we can't stop now.  What's that old saying?  Don't rest on your laurels?  Well, I'm not resting and neither is he.  Life didn't even give us that option.  We've got problems.  Big ones.  Let's see if we can do this, survive the downs and get back to the ups.  Guess only time will tell.

“...We're just one.  Just one, f*cking, twisted bit of soul in love.”

When I glance up into the mirror, I look young, too young to be a mother.  My face is soft and my eyes are hard.  I question my own strength and then glance away.  “If Jade wants to see that piece of sh*t, what can I do to stop her?  I might ask her why, but that's all I can do.  I doubt she'll even answer me.”
    Ty doesn't say anything, but he reaches out and brushes my hair back with his rings, all twelve of them, glittering and sparkling like rubies.  They match the piercings in his face.  Gotta love a color coordinated badass.
    Neither of us misses how small and tight this bathroom is, how close we are, how hard he was in the kitchen.
    “Ty,” I warn as he comes up behind me and slides his fingers under my shirt, up my belly, cupping my tender breasts with strong hands.  “So not fair,” I groan, reaching up and smacking the fan.  It coughs to life and is loud as f*ck, blocking any sounds from escaping this little room.  “You can't touch those.”  My c*nt is pulsing and my heart is pounding in my skull.  Down below, I know I'm soaking wet.
“Why not?” he whispers against my ear.  “It'll make you feel better.”

"Austin Sparks crushes me against the pool table with his hips, the roughness of his jeans rubbing against the smoothness of my thighs as he pushes up my skirt with his warm hands.
    'Get ready for this, beautiful.' "

Twenty-one year old Amy Cross's idea of a hot Saturday night is curling up with her favorite book boyfriend and secretly sneaking a bottle of her mother's wine.  That is, until she meets Austin Sparks, the biker boy with a past that burns like fire and a gaze she can't look away from.  Without knowing what she's doing or why she's doing it, Amy ends up on the road with Austin traveling from one city to another while learning things she's only ever read about in romance novels.

At first it seems like Austin is Amy's fantasy come true, but as their journey progresses, she starts to sense that Austin is running away from something.  Amy knows that she'll do whatever it takes to help him find himself.  What she doesn't expect is that she'll lose herself in the process and how good it will feel to be free.

“Austin,” I whisper as he steps forward and uses the weight of his body to get me right where he wants me.  I want to keep kissing forever, tasting sultry Southern boy and good manners and a filthy f****** mouth, but I think he has other plans.
    “If you don't want this,” he whispers as he grazes my ear with his white, white teeth.  “Then you better tell me now because once I get started, I ain't gonna be able to stop.”
    How unfair, I think because really, there is no way that I can speak with scalding kisses being pressed to the side of my neck and my shoulder.  Instead, another sound escapes my lips, bursting out into the air like a sigh of relief.  Finally, I think.  After all these years of reading about bad boys and alpha males and delicious men with ridiculous names, it's my turn.  Mine.  Mine.  Sorry, Horse; Sorry, Kellan Kyle; Sorry, Ty McCabe; Sorry, Travis Maddox; Sorry, Gideon Cross.  But I'm breaking up with all of you.

    Austin Sparks crushes me against the pool table with his hips, the roughness of his jeans rubbing against the smoothness of my thighs as he pushes up my skirt with his warm hands.

    And then he's spinning me around, so suddenly that my mouth opens wide and my cheek (my unbruised one, thankfully) slams into the felt of the pool table.
Tasting, Finding, Keeping: The Story of Never
Contains Three Full Length New Adult/Contemporary Romance Novels and Six Bonus Short Stories and Never-Before-Read Deleted Scenes
Recommended for Ages 18 and Up
(Books Included: "Tasting Never", "Finding Never", and "Keeping Never" - the first three books in the series.)

“Sometimes, the only way to go forward is to take a few, careful steps back.”

Never Ross is a broken soul who doesn't need to be fixed. There's a monster inside of her, eating little bits of her everyday, and she can't seem to stop it. It makes her do things she doesn't want to do, say things she doesn't want to say.

She's used to dating guys like Ty McCabe; he's one of the dangerous ones, the ones with pasts that burn like fire and melt everything around them. But there's something different about this soul with a sad smile and arms covered in butterfly tattoos, something that tantalizes Never's shattered spirit.

When Ty and Never form a tentative, almost reluctant, friendship that opens the door on their dark sides and shows them what it's like to live in the light, they'll have to face the skeletons in their closets, fight back the blackness and see if two tortured souls desperate for a healing touch can connect into something beautiful.

Broken doesn't always mean destroyed.

Ty's hot mouth is on my neck, and I find myself taking short, sharp, little breaths as I press my shaking hands to his chest. If I sleep with him again, I'll be making the biggest mistake of my life. He's the first real friend I've ever had, and I don't want to cheapen the feelings that are simmering between us. We made that mistake once before, and we survived. We've been through a lot since then, and I know that if I lose him now, I will never be whole again. Ty is my other half, lover or no, and just being around him is enough for me.

“Ty,” I say, trying my best to sound stern. Instead, my voice comes out like a butterfly, flutters against Ty's hair and swirls it gently against my lips. I moan and find that my fingers are now curled in the fabric of his T-shirt.

“Never,” he says back to me, the word like fire against my skin. In those two syllables, I hear how he feels about me. He thinks he's in love. Ty McCabe thinks he's in love with me. He doesn't say it aloud, but I can tell. Sex isn't the best way for me to show my feelings; I've abused it for far too long that it has somehow lost some of its meaning. I try to tell Ty this, but I can't speak with his lips on my throat and his hand sliding across the nape of my neck.

I run my own hands down his chest and put them beneath his shirt, on the hard plane of his belly. His muscles contract as I press my fingers into them, touching, feeling, absorbing the man, the complication, that is Ty McCabe. All the while, my mind is racing in circles trying to talk me out of this.

“Kiss me,” Ty says and it's not a question, it's a request, albeit a gentle one. His voice is softer than I've ever heard it. His words are naked, stripped of all the bullshit that's happened to him, all of the horrible things that mirror my own life. Ty and I are like twins, like two halves of the same whole. They say that opposites attract, but Ty and I are very much the same and the attraction between us burns brighter than the sun. “Kiss me,” he says again and I do.
The Alpha Wolves Motorcycle Club President wants me for his old lady.

Like that could ever happen.

Royal McBride is a total a-hole.  He's rude, impulsive, and the rest of his club hates me.  Of course, the man in question has a lethal swagger, a sinful smirk, and a British accent that melts my lacy crotchless panties.  Plus, the guy's got timber wolves as pets and lives in a Victorian house by the sea.

How could I say no to that?

But I can never forget that he's the head of a criminal organization that's in trouble with both the FBI and a rival MC.  If I thought things were bad before, they're about to get worse.  Danger is in his job description; outlaw is his whole life.

A turf war between two clubs is no place for the mayor's daughter; in the tattooed arms of the man in charge feels exactly like where I belong.

Falling into bed with him was a big mistake; falling in love with him could be deadly.

A motorcycle club president … an aspiring politician.

There's no way in hell this is going to work.

***Risky and Wild - a full-length motorcycle club romance with no cliff-hanger, a sexy British bad boy president and a sense of humor (plus lots of crotchless panties, psychopathic blond guys with killer tattoos, and a gun toting Pint-Size heroine).

looks up at me, and the moonlight catches on his brown eyes, making
them shimmer with color and life.  I think I could get a crush on this
guy pretty easily.  If I had time for crushes, I would welcome Mr.
Sinclair with open arms.  As things stand, this could be our first and
last date.  I decide that if it is, at the very least I should at least
let myself taste those lips.  They're puffy and pink and far too nice to
be on a man's face.  Admittedly, I'm a little jealous.  I scoot forward
and lean over, putting my hands on either side of Emmett's knees,
dragging my breasts against his jeans as I press my face close and let
my eyelids flicker shut.
    As if on cue, he moves into me, tangling
his hand in my hair, pressing hot heat to my cold lips, tasting me with
long teasing strokes of tongue that cut through my cold shivers and
replace them with sudden contractions of my muscles as my body cries out
hungrily, desperate for another bite.  I hold back, denying it with
sheer strength of will.  Just as I deny myself calories for fear of the
repercussions, I will deny myself Emmett Sinclair and whatever it is
that he's offering.  We just met today, and he's making me think weird
things, putting strange thoughts in my head.  I don't know how or why,
but he sees that I need help, and he's willing to give it.
touch the back of Emmett's neck, run my fingers up into his shaggy hair
and pull his hat away so I can tease and stroke and explore.  Our kiss
lasts minutes, stretches out long and warm, twists like taffy and
solidifies into this little nugget of something.  If I thought I was
going to be able to escape Emmett after one date, I was wrong.
I want … no, need more, and like food to my hungry body, I can only resist so long before it kills me.

“I'm living through the ugly.”

I've done it this time.  I've really screwed up.  I've made a mistake, and I'm afraid that it's going to cost me everything – my family, my career and most importantly, Emmett Sinclair.  He saw the beauty inside of me, looked past what I was becoming on the outside, and gave me his trust.  Everyone thinks I tried to kill myself; I think I made a mistake.  They all say I'm halfway to the grave; I say I've been reborn.  Nobody knows what I'm going through, so I'm going to have to fight harder than ever before.  The problem is, I no longer know exactly what it is I'm fighting for.

“Emmett,” I command him, and he looks down at me.  This time a shaft of moonlight catches across his face and makes his eyes shimmer.  “Kiss me.”  He smiles and does what I ask without protest, bending low, capturing my mouth with his as the rain switches direction and starts streaming through the skylight straight into our faces.  It pours down our skin and coats us in slick wetness as we drink it in between kisses, taste a piece of night sky and a bit of freedom.  That's one of the things I like most about being out here: there's nobody else around to see.  Whatever happens here belongs to us and only us.
    A thrill runs through me, like I've been shocked by lightning or something and for a split second, I feel like Old Claire, like the fiery redhead I was before all of this started.  But I can't be her again.  I have to be New Claire because she's stronger, better, because she can fight off the demons and sing with the angels.
    I tear Emmett's wet shirt open and buttons go flying.  He looks surprised but not displeased as I kiss my way down his wet belly and go for his pants.  If it was cold up here before, it isn't anymore, and now everything just feels hot and wet, like the water could evaporate at any moment, turn into steam and scald us both.  Emmett stops me after I undo his pants, before I can put my mouth around him, and he pulls my face up with gentle fingers under the chin, kisses me again.
“I want to look at you,” he whispers against my lips and I swear, the tree house spins in circles around me.  I crawl onto the bed and bring him with me.  We lay side by side and kiss without tongue, pressing our lips together as water pools around us.  I think we could drown and we wouldn't notice.
"He's a bad boy … and a nanny."

Holy sweet baby Jesus.

I don't know anything about taking care of kids.

I pierce nipples, navels, and noses for a living.

I've never even held a baby before.  Not once.  Never changed a diaper or cleaned up a skinned knee.  Hell, I don't even want kids.  I'm more of a drifter, a once in a lifetime lover, and then I move on.

Family?  Commitment?  Nuh uh, no way.

Tough sh*t, though, because my brother and his kids need me.  Desperately.

I never thought to wonder if I might need them, too.

That I might need her, this strange woman I met at a playground.

Brooke Overland.

She doesn't know I'm not a professional nanny, but what am I supposed to do now?

She hired me; I took care of her sister's kids for her; I slept with her.

My life is so screwed-up.

***BAD NANNY is a 109,000 word full-length novel with NO cliff-hanger and a happy ending.  If you like sexy bad boys (with a nerdy side), hairless cats, and virgin strippers, then this is your next five star read!  This book contains scorching hot love scenes, a little exhibitionism, and a lot of laughs.  (Book #2: GOOD BOYFRIEND coming soon!)***

I cup the sides of Brooke's throat, hold that beautiful neck in my inked up hands and tilt her chin up with my thumbs.  Neither one of us speaks, and it's hot as h*ll.  Her breath feathers against my mouth as I hover mine inches from her face, just feeling the warm, frantic breaths that escape her lips.  When her hands drop to my jeans and start to undo my belt, I wait there with a sinful smirk slashing across my lips as she lets my c*** spring free from my jeans and wraps her hand around it.

Brooke tries to kiss me, but I hold her still, both hands on her throat, thumbs gently running over her lower lip and down her chin.  She makes that frantic little sound that drove me crazy last time and I press my forehead against hers, closing my eyes as I let the pleasure of her hand wash through me.

“I can't,” Brooke whispers, but I keep my hold on her, firm but gentle.

“Sure you can,” I whisper back as she strains for my lips and I let her brush against them, just enough to make her pulse jump beneath my hands.  Her tongue slicks across my lower lip, but I don't let it go any further, pushing my hips forward so that my c***'s trapped between us.  Brooke grapples clumsily to get the job done, but h*ll if I don't like it, if I don't push my pelvis into her touch.
