Rebel, runner, recluse, rich girl.

Nine years ago, Erin Walsh ran away from everything.


Home.

Family.

Secrets.

Tragedy.

Herself.


The only permanence in her life is catastrophe.


She travels from country to country, chasing disaster, teasing fire, playing with poison. She guards against real connections, and shuns the only family she has left.


She holds everyone—even her siblings—at a mile-long distance. It's the only way to protect herself.


But she can't protect herself from Nick Acevedo.


He's the ice to her fire, and he's willing to sacrifice everything to bring her home.

 A tough-as-nails businesswoman. An arrogant Navy SEAL. A power struggle with no end in sight. 



Some people hook-up at weddings. Others break a hotel room bed (and a table, and a desk, and some complimentary bathrobe belts) and discover they've been surviving on bargain basement orgasms their entire lives. 

The last one? Yeah. That's all me. 

She's driven and demanding… 
I wasn't always a bitch. There's a dirty little trick to succeeding in business: the sweet and innocent rarely survive. I fought my way up from nothing, and I don't bend for anyone. 

Until Will Halsted ties me to a headboard and makes me his…for now. 

One wild, filthy night turns into another, and then...we can't stop. Each time we're together is more addictive than the last, but it's nothing more than a sexy escape from reality. 

Or is it? 

He's never walked away from a challenge… 
I wasn't always a warrior but now it's in my bones and blood. That's what years spent in the special operations does to a man. My entire life is classified: where I've been, what I've seen, what I've done, and there's no mission too dangerous. 

Until I realize that falling for Shannon Walsh is like trying to swim against a riptide. She's going to tear me up and toss me to the shore, and I'll love every minute of it. 

Every time I'm down range, I want her counting the hours until I'm back. Waiting for me. She's done it before; she'll do it again. 

Or will she? 

They're wrong for each other in every possible way… 
Or are they?

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Ethan Frost returns in another breathtaking novel by Tracy Wolff, the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Ruined.
 
As Chloe Girard discovers, there’s love . . . and then there’s addiction.
 
Ethan Frost is everything a woman could want in a man. He’s rich, gorgeous, powerful, one of the most eligible bachelors in the world.
 
But that’s not why I’m with him.
 
I love Ethan for all the things no one else gets to see: his innate kindness, his reckless spontaneity, his unwavering determination to use his brilliance for good. I love the way he looks at me, the way he touches me. The way he makes me forget the wreckage of my past and the twisted fear that still lives inside me.
 
But sometimes it terrifies me how much I crave him, how much I need him just to breathe. I always thought it would be my past that ruined us, but there’s a darkness in Ethan I never dreamed existed. Can we survive as his secrets surface—threatening to unravel us both?

Look for all of Tracy Wolff’s seductive reads:
The Ethan Frost series: RUINED | ADDICTED | EXPOSED | FLAWED

“Addicted is a deeply emotional, gut-wrenching story about love, loss, pain and ultimately trust. Trust in yourself and trust in your lover . . . are two elements that are tantamount to a strong relationship. With the baggage and seemingly insurmountable odds stacked against Chloe and Ethan, trust is the key.”—Scandalicious Book Reviews
 
“Tracy Wolff pulls the reader into an emotional, heartbreaking . . . storyline about two people whose pasts collide with the present, resulting in a roller coaster of push and pull.”—The Reading Cafe

“Wolff is a brilliant author who writes great characters and steamy hot scenes. . . . I think you’ll enjoy it. Ethan Frost is totally worth it!”—Pretty Sassy Cool
 
“This book had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. It made me fall in love with these characters all over again but in an entirely different capacity. I highly recommend this book as well as all of Tracy’s books. I look forward to reading more from her.”—Love Between the Sheets

USA TODAY BESTSELLER • In Lauren Layne’s sizzling Sex, Love & Stiletto series, New York’s hottest “sexpert” has been living a lie—and it’s up to one man to keep her honest . . . all night long.

Riley McKenna knows sex—good sex, bad sex, kinky sex. Her articles in Stiletto magazine are the publication’s most scandalous—and the most read. But when Stiletto’s fiftieth anniversary issue requires her column to get a lot more personal, Riley is forced to confront a long-hidden secret: Her own sexual experience is limited to one awkward college encounter. Now Riley is about to call in the favor of a lifetime from the one man who’s always held her heart.

Sam Compton knows two things about Riley McKenna: She’s the only woman for him. But as his best friend’s little sister, she’s also completely off-limits. Sam shouldn’t even consider her proposition: to have a one-night stand in the name of research. But the thought of another man putting his hands on Riley is more than Sam can handle, and soon he’s agreeing to one night with New York’s resident sexpot. But Riley’s full of surprises, and what starts as “one time only” soon becomes “just one more time.” And then one more. And before they know it, Riley and Sam learn firsthand that when it comes to love, there’s no such thing as just one night.

Praise for Just One Night

“Sexy, sassy, and surprisingly sweet, Lauren Layne’s Just One Night is a total page-turner! The intimate scenes with Riley and Sam left me breathless and there was a lump in my throat at the end. A fabulous addition to the Sex, Love and Stiletto series!”—New York Times bestselling author Donna Alward

Underneath It All


One hot architect. One naughty schoolteacher. One crazy night that changes everything.


Meet Lauren Halsted.

It's all the little things--the action plans, the long-kept promises--that started falling apart when my life slipped into controlled chaos. 


After I fell ass-over-elbow into Matthew Walsh's arms.


Meet Matthew Walsh.

A rebellious streak ran through Lauren Halsted. It was fierce and unrelentingly beautiful, and woven through too many good girl layers to count, and she wasn't letting anyone tell her what to do.


Unless, of course, she was naked.


The Space Between

A brilliant, alpha architect. A smart, sultry apprentice. What could possibly go wrong?


Patrick 

That hair.

That damn hair.

It was everywhere, always, and I wanted to tangle my fingers in those dark curls and pull.

And that would be fine if she wasn't my apprentice.


Andy 

An incredibly hot architect with the most expressive hazel eyes I ever encountered and entirely too much talent in and out of the bedroom wasn't part of my original plan. 


With Patrick Walsh leaving love notes in the form of bite marks all over my body, it seems my plan was undergoing some renovations.


Necessary Restorations

He's a flawed perfectionist…

I can read women better than any blueprint. I understand their thoughts and feelings, their secret desires and insecurities.


But all bets are off when Tiel Desai slams into my life. I can't read the gorgeous conservatory-trained violinist, but she's the only one keeping me from shattering by small degrees, and I can't let her go. 


She's wildly independent… 

My past—and New Jersey—are far behind me, and now my life is blissfully full of music: playing, teaching, and lecturing, and scouring Boston's underground scene with an annoyingly beautiful, troubled, tattooed architect. 


I'm defenseless against his rooftop kisses, our nearly naked dance parties, the snuggletimes that turn into sexytimes, and his deep, demanding voice.


I have Sam Walsh stuck in my head like a song on repeat, and I'm happy pretending history won't catch up with me.
