Against the Dark: The Spy's Fake Fiance

“Action packed, sexy and lots of fun. I definitely recommend this one.”
Smexy Books

Playing the fake girlfriend of arrogant secret agent Cole Hawkins? It’s the last thing Angel wants to do. But she can handle anything for a weekend…right?

ANGEL left the safecracking game five years ago, and she’s worked hard to build an honest life. But when a beloved aunt is kidnapped, she must reunite with her girl jewel thief gang to get the unique ransom: a psycho’s prized diamonds.

It’s a simple job that turns into a nightmare, thanks to a surprisingly clever—and searingly sexy—security guard named Cole Hawkins, a man who might be more than he seems.

COLE is stunned when he catches Angel cracking the man’s supposedly uncrackable safe. She's just what he needs, so he blackmails her into posing as his fiance. He can’t worry that she hates him and he certainly shouldn't worry about her safety. She’s just some criminal…right? 

But the further they fall into Borgola’s web, the more he realizes he was wrong about Angel…and the more real those fake kisses start to feel.

 “…fast, fun, and sexy. Angel and Cole have great chemistry before, during, and after the two get down and dirty.” ~Dear Author

Dr. Ivan Rusilko has got it bad. He's in love-with life, his work, and his baby girl, Jaden Thorne. The nearly 3000 miles between Miami and L.A. that once threatened their happily-ever-after now seem nothing more than a mere geographical challenge-nothing a few hours on a plane and a sexy weekend rendezvous can't trump. No time apart is too long to keep him from wanting her in his arms and in his bed. He's absolutely sure Jaden is his dream come true. Jaden Thorne is living the life she's always wanted. She's got her one-in-a-million job on a TV cooking show, she's achieved celebrity chef status, and she's in a committed relationship with her perfect guy... Then the network's surprise decision to add a co-host to her show takes a bite out of her perfectly balanced life and career. With a new man in the mix, living the dream gets a whole lot more complicated both personally and professionally. When the emotional, mental, and physical paths of true love's course collide with frustration, secrets, and assumptions, will Ivan and Jaden pay the price? Does their dream-come-true cost something neither can afford? The Winemaker's Dinner: Entrée is a decadent meal of passion, sex, and secrets, inspired by the real romantic life of Dr. Ivan Rusilko. Authors Everly Drummond and Dr. Ivan Rusilko have turned up the heat in this emotional follow up to The Winemaker's Dinner: Appetizers, expertly executing their unique recipe for blending fact and fantasy, with more than a dash of passion and sex.
Seducing women to steal their secrets? No problem. Until he tries it with her.

Mac’s a spy—one of the best—a hot blond Viking with bad intentions. The singer in the Bangkok nightclub should be easy to handle: take her recordings while she’s recovering from the best sex of her life. Except she stirs feelings he thought he’d buried years ago.

Laney fled to Bangkok—new life, new identity, new everything. She keeps mostly to herself until the night she meets arrogant, gorgeous Professor Peter Maxwell. He shatters her defenses—along with her pride when she discover he only seduced her to steal some secrets.

 Just hours later, she finds him shirtless and sweaty, chained up in the hotel basement. He’s some sort of undercover agent. She should probably leave him there after what he did to her, maybe even kick him for good measure. But her pscyho ex is on his way back—she can feel it in her bones—and she could use a dangerous friend.

AGAINST THE DARK

Secret agents like Cole should come with a warning.

Cole's a talented spy with a vast reputation--and an ego to match. But he’s up against a clever and lethal psycho…and he’s running out of time.

He's stunned when he catches Angel cracking the man’s supposedly uncrackable safe. She's just what he needs, so he blackmails her into posing as his fiance. He can’t worry that she hates him and he certainly shouldn't worry about her safety. She’s just some criminal…right? 

But the further they fall into Borgola’s web, the more he realizes he was wrong about Angel…and the more real those fake kisses start to feel. 

OFF THE EDGE

He’s a secret agent linguistics expert…and she’s on the run from a dangerous psycho. 

Mac’s a spy—one of the best—a hot blond Viking with bad intentions. Seducing the nightclub singer should be simple…except she stirs feelings he thought he’d buried years ago.

Laney fled to Bangkok—new life, new identity, new everything. She keeps mostly to herself until the night she meets Mac. He shatters her defenses—along with her pride when she discover he only wanted her secrets.

Just hours later, she finds him shirtless and sweaty, chained up in the hotel basement. He’s some sort of undercover agent. She should probably leave him there after what he did to her, maybe even kick him for good measure. But her pscyho ex is on his way back—she can feel it in her bones—and she could use a dangerous friend.

INTO THE SHADOWS

"God, I love Thorne! He's so ridiculously bad, yet vulnerable!"~Amazon reviewer 

Nadia thinks Thorne's just some killer. Well, he’s so deep undercover, he practically is.

Nadia fell for the most feared hitter on her late father’s payroll, but she’s not sorry; without Thorne she wouldn’t have their beautiful boy.

Now he’s burst back into her life after being gone for two years, arrogant and demanding, making himself right at home. She can’t let him figure out Benny is his…so she enlists a friend to play their son’s daddy.

Thorne knows exactly how Nadia sees him—as a brute and a killer willing to play her sexy games. And that’s how it has to stay. Leaving her way back when was the hardest thing he ever did, but it was the only way to protect her. Now his undercover mission has thrown them back together…and it drives him crazy to see her with another man…and another man’s baby.

BEHIND THE MASK

What do you do when dangerous criminals win your twin sister in a card game? Trade places, of course.

Zelda and her sister grew up with identical faces, but their lives couldn’t be more different—Zelda became a secret agent while her sister got caught up in drugs. Zelda will do this one last thing to save her sister. She’s handled lethal men before…she can do it again.

But things don’t go as planned. Zelda ends up getting traded deeper and deeper into South America. Suddenly she finds herself at the beck and call of a domineering and mysterious new captor. Is he just another criminal? Or is could this be the legendary killer she spent all those years hunting back in her secret agent days?
