Book 1
The deadliest assassin in the empire just got too close to her target… 

Azurha, an assassin known as the Rabbit, has just been offered the ultimate challenge—seduce, then murder the new Emperor. But Titus is not the tyrant his forefathers were, and his radical ideas might be the glimmer of hope the empire needs.

More than just Titus’ ideas hold Azurha captive. Night after night, he awakens desires she thought lost, and uncovers the magic of her hidden lineage. As her deadline approaches, Azurha is forced to make an impossible decision—complete her job by killing the man she loves, or fail and forfeit both their lives.

Here's what reviewers are saying about Tangled Web

"Much more than an ordinary sci-fi novel, book one of The Deizian Empire is a story of war, survival, and love. From the beginning, McHugh shows us how strong the connection between the hero and heroine is, and their hunger for each other is insatiable. Easily read in a single sitting, this spellbinding tale will be welcomed with open arms by readers, who will thank the gods there is a sequel." -- 4 Stars, RT Book Reviews 

"The book is so hot it will leave you breathless as Titus and Azurha burn the sheets, but it will make you sigh over the emotion that comes from them both." -- Annetta Sweetko, Fresh Fiction

"Crista McHugh’s Tangled Web is sinfully delicious! This erotic feast features one fascinating couple and a killer plotline.  It’s impossible to turn away from this story after reading the first few pages!...  Tangled Web is a keeper!" -- Recommended Read, Joyfully Reviewed

Get the first three books in the popular Kelly Brothers series from New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Crista McHugh at special price.

 The Sweetest Seduction (Book 1):
Lia Mantovani has created one of the hottest restaurants on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, but all that could disappear if she loses her lease with Kelly Properties. Having had her dreams ripped away from her before, she’ll do everything in her power to keep her restaurant. Her fate hangs on the whims of the frustratingly handsome Adam Kelly.

Adam has spent years trying to convince world famous chef Amadeus Schlittler to open a restaurant in Chicago, but he wants the prime location held by Lia. Business has always come first… until sparks fly when Adam meets her. When things get hot outside the kitchen, though, they’re both in danger of getting burned.

Breakaway Hearts (Book 2):
Hockey star Ben Kelly has retreated to his mountain cabin in the ski town of Cascade, BC, to recuperate from a season-ending knee injury and contemplate his future in the NHL. He never expects to run into the one woman who got away. Nine years may have passed, but nothing has dulled the explosive chemistry between them. Now he wants more than just one night.

Hailey Eriksson had Olympic-sized dreams until an accidental pregnancy from a one-night stand halted her ambitions. Her life was shattered when her son died. Nothing will keep her from fulfilling her promise to him to make the Olympic team, especially not the charming Ben Kelly. Unfortunately, he’s out to sweep her off her feet this time, and she finds him harder and harder to resist with each passionate kiss. But when he learns about the child he never knew, will their rekindled romance be on thin ice?

Falling for the Wingman (Book 3):
Air Force pilot Caleb Kelly has come back home with one mission in mind—to propose to the woman whose letters and lucky charm helped him survive his deployment in Afghanistan. But when he finds their apartment empty with a note saying she’s left him, he arrives at her mother’s house in rural Alabama less than a week before Kourtney is about to marry another man. Now he’s out to win her heart again and gets some unexpected assistance from her younger sister, Alex.

Alex Leadbetter has always thought Caleb was too good for her manipulative, social-climbing sister. She had assumed Kourtney’s identity to write letters to him and keep his spirits up until he returned home to the hard truth, never expecting to fall in love with him along the way. After he shows up in town, she convinces him that the best way to get Kourtney back is to make her think he’s fallen for someone new — her. But when a fake romance becomes all too real, her deception may leave them both grounded.
