Steve McCoy only keeps a submissive for a month. No complications, no regrets.

Steve McCoy has managed to keep his hideously painful past locked away and turned himself into a successful attorney and businessman. The blond Viking of a man has everything any guy could want - nice home, nice apartment, beautiful luxury car, plenty of cash, and access to all the subs he could ever want through the BDSM club he owns, Eden's Gate.

But that may change when cute, buxom, sexy little Kelly Markham walks into his life.

Kelly Markham's past was painful too, but she's managed to power on through. When her friend Nikki sends her to Steve for legal assistance and Kelly discovers he owns a club, she can't wait to visit. Adrift since her late Dom passed away, she's eager to find a way back into the lifestyle, and to possibly get to know the hot, blue-eyed hunk.

Steve can offer her that by signing a D/s contract with her, with one catch: It's only for one month. And that's fine with both of them when things go awry initially. But as they give it another chance and their chemistry starts to heat up, each of them begins to wonder what a permanent arrangement could offer. And neither wants to broach the subject, expose their true feelings, and risk heartbreak and pain.

As the month rolls by, Kelly makes a discovery about Steve's past and sets out to help him overcome his demons, a thing Steve considers the ultimate betrayal. But in the process, she unleashes a secret so deadly that someone will have to pay. Unfortunately, that person is her. And it looks doubtful that she'll get out of the demon's grasp with her life.

An angry Steve refuses to open himself up to help her until he’s confronted with a revelation that’s too important to ignore. He has a decision to make: Do the right thing or lose the one person who's finally made the commitment to love him.

Renovating a Heart, Book 3 in the Love Under Construction series, is full of hot D/s sex with a healthy dose of ménage, violence, suspense, and heartbreak. And it's a story of hope and forgiveness great enough to give the most jaded a reason to believe in love. Read it following Laying a Foundation with Prequel, The Groundbreaking (Book 1), and Tearing Down Walls (Book 2), to really get to know the characters intimately and follow their story.

BONUS: Each book in the Love Under Construction series features the recipe of a dish mentioned in the books. It's like dessert meets drama!

Book 4
There are moments in every life when we make a choice that defines who we really are. Peyton Stokes is about to step into that moment.

Peyton Stokes is pretty sure no woman will ever want him. When he strapped that prosthesis on his lower left leg, he took on the belief that he was off the market for a meaningful relationship forever. That self-imposed label of "cripple" has followed him and dogged him. On a whim, he decides to ask Molly Walters - mature, smart, and beautiful - to go out with him, only to be shocked when she asks him out first. One chance is all he needs to prove to her that he can get the job done, and he wants to take that chance.

Problem is, his best friend, José Flores, unknowingly decides that Molly looks like a pretty good prospect too.

Even though she's having fun with Peyton, Molly can't help but be drawn to the dark haired, dark eyed ex-cage fighter turned security specialist. The fact that he's almost two decades younger than her doesn't hurt her self-esteem either. While Peyton soothes everything in Molly's soul, José's brand of balls-to-the-wall, red-hot fun turns up the heat to scorching every time he touches her. She knows she eventually has to tell them about each other and make some kind decision, and Molly makes one.

She wants them both.

That revelation brings about a turn of events no one could've anticipated. When things fall apart, Molly tries to pick up the pieces, but that's hard when someone you love has disappeared. It'll take everyone who loves him to find him, with or without the help of the one man he loves the most. And that one man has to decide: Are his labels worth losing not one, but two people he loves? He's got to decide quickly. Otherwise, it may be too late - eternally. 

Revisit the world of the Walters family in this concluding novel of the Love Under Construction series. You'll find out who lives, who dies, and who expands their world - and their family. And in Renovating a Heart, Book 3, we were left with the question of Nikki Walters' health. That question lives large in Planning an Addition as Tony Walters is left to face the looming prospect that he may have to live out the rest of his life without the only woman who ever really loved him. He's not entirely sure he can do that, but all hope has been exhausted and time is running out. Someone in the family holds the key, but Tony will have to be willing to let her step in. And that will take a giant leap of the faith he's pretty sure he's exhausted.

Funny how everything changes when it's a matter of life or death.

Book 1
He has no idea how sexy he is.

Even as a successful construction business owner, Tony Walters’ ex-wife’s mental illness almost drove him over the edge. Too many years loveless and abused has left him afraid to try to meet another woman, much less form a relationship.

She's just too shy to even meet his eyes.

In one instant left a childless widow, Nikki Wilkes couldn’t imagine romance would ever be in her life again, much less passion and deep, never-ending love.

Two mature adults sidestep each other for five years until fate brings them together in a sweet, passionate, erotic adventure of sexual exploration and self-discovery. A perfect mixture of Southern charm and hospitality and European sophistication, the tall Italian-American sweeps the funny, smart, kinky Kentucky girl off her feet and into his bed, and together the sparks they throw off ignite their world.

The new home they build together draws them closer to his family and each other and into a new life filled with laughter and love, not to mention a big kitchen full of friends and fun as Nikki becomes the glue that holds the family together with her cooking, hugs, and mothering.

But just as everything looks rosy, a secret-fueled mystery unfolds when an unknown threat attempts to ruin Tony’s business and maybe even hurt him. As the criminal activity becomes more and more focused on destroying their happiness, it’s obvious it’s personal. And someone’s going to get hurt – or worse. It’s just a matter of time.

Sex, humor, and secrets collide in this blistering start to the series to prove that they’re not getting older – they’re just getting started!

Combo volume contains The Groundbreaking, a prequel that offers readers background on the nine main characters in the series.

BONUS: Each book in the Love Under Construction series features the recipe of a dish mentioned in the books. It’s like dessert meets drama!

WARNING: Strong, graphic, kinky sexual scenes and graphic criminal violence. Not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Book 3
A homeless young woman. A respected, mature Dominant. And too many years between them.

Dave Adams has been alone ever since his wife left him for her girlfriend years before. Of course, he's not alone: Managing Bliss, an elegant, members-only BDSM club, is his life, and with submissives galore, Master Dave has whatever he wants, whenever he wants it. He's seen his son and his son's best friend both find the loves of their lives, but Dave knows his time's up.

But that was before he opened the back door to take out the night's garbage and found a young homeless woman trapped between him and the dumpster. Compassionate to a fault, Dave invites here in and tries to reach out to her, only to discover that a hideousness has transpired and left her more than just damaged. As he, Clint, and Steffen, with the help of Trish and Sheila, manage to draw out Olivia's demons and help her begin to confront them, something unexpected happens - Dave finds himself responding to Olivia's softness and vulnerability, and her to his dominance and loving guidance.

And just when it seems their May/December romance might stand a chance, a plan gone wrong convinces Dave that the last place Olivia needs to be is in his arms. He finds a way to send her on to bigger and better things, but when her whereabouts become unknown, Dave discovers that maybe dates on a calendar don't mean that much at all. Problem is, unless he can find her, it won't matter.

Return to Bliss and the characters you've grown to love in this final intallment in the Me, You, and Us series, and find out what it takes to break into that scared, worn out heart in Dave Adams' chest.
