“Magnificently hot, and wonderfully written! Who needs Prince Charming when you can have a magnificent bastard! This book is a definite MUST READ!" -5 STARS from Beneath the Covers Blog 

F*ck Prince Charming. Sometimes, you need a Magnificent Bastard.

Face it, ladies: love sucks and then you cry…while your ex rides off into the sunset banging your best friend.

But why let a break-up end in tears when it can end with sweet revenge? Enter Magnificent Bastard Consulting and me, chief executive bastard. I’ve got it all—looks, brains, a heart of gold, and the killer instinct guaran-damn-teed to make your ex regret the day he said goodbye.

With the help of my virtual assistant, I’ve built an empire giving broken-hearted women the vengeance they deserve, while keeping myself far from the front lines of the heart. Life is a bowl of cherries, until my virtual assistant shows up on my real doorstep for the first time, begging for a Magnificent Bastard intervention of her own.

Damn… She’s a bona fide sex kitten.

I pride myself on being a true pro, but pretending to be her lover soon leads to giving it to her good, hard, fast, and up against the wall. And somewhere between getting balls deep in my sweet and sexy assistant and watching her ex beg for a second chance, I break every last one of my damn rules—professional and personal.

So what’s my next move? Fight for the girl who makes me want to get up on a white horse and ride to her rescue, or stay a Magnificent Bastard to the end?

Warning: MAGNIFICENT BASTARD is a stand-alone erotic romance told from the hero’s point of view. No cliffhanger. Lots of dirty talk.

"Quite frankly, this is one giant, perfectly executed bookgasm! It's what book dreams are made of. Scorching hot and laugh-out-loud funny, this book has it all...in spades!" -Adriana Locke, USA Today Bestselling Author

"Sebastian is a magnificent hero! This is a true romantic comedy with the perfect mix of heat, romance, and hilarity!" - NYT Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely

Editorial Reviews

"Helen has weaved a delicately balanced story of intrigue, secrets and passion, which practically melts the pages." -Bare Naked Words

"The love story between Talon and Jade continues in Obsession. An apt title to be sure, because everyone is obsessed. Dear Ms. Helen Hardt, I toss many profanities your way for making me wait. Though I give you my deepest gratitude for building the anticipation of what I’m sure will be an epic culmination to an amazing series. " -Heroes and Heartbreakers

"Talon and Jade's chemistry sizzles and the love scenes will melt your heart and your Kindle." -The Book Sirens

"I am loving this series so freaking much… The story line is one that will have you completely engrossed…" -Wicked Babes Blog

"Helen left my head spinning and my mind racing a mile a minute. I need to know what the secrets are... " -The Book Fairy Reviews

Synopsis

Jade Roberts is in love with Talon Steel but no longer welcome in his home. While she resolves to move on, she still longs for the passion she and Talon shared…and when her boss asks her to dig up information on the Steels, she’s only too happy to comply. Talon and his brothers are hiding something, and Jade is determined to find out what it is.

The moment Talon saw Jade he wanted her, ached for her, craved her…and now his desire has become his obsession. He knows she deserves better than his broken soul, but he can’t stay away from her, and he finally confesses his love. If he and Jade are to have a future, he knows he must make peace with the dark shadows and horrors of his past.

But as Talon begins his journey of healing, Jade uncovers some startling secrets…

NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR, ELLE CASEY, brings readers the New Adult Romance BY DEGREES.

Celebrities all suffer from the same disease. I call it the create-your-own-reality disease. Most of them start out normal, like you and me, but somewhere along the way they lose sight of up and down, left and right, and then eventually right and wrong. It's my job to fix that.

Who hires me, Scarlett Barnes, otherwise known as ‘The Normalizer’? Agents usually. Producers sometimes. They know they can trust me to be professional, discreet, and above all, not personally involved with my clients. I come in, I take over their lives, and I get them back on track. Help them remember what it's like to be an average Joe.

My latest job acquisition? His friends call him Tear-It-Up Kilgour, but I just call him Tarin - lead singer and guitarist for the band By Degrees. I have thirty days to get his butt back on planet earth before he loses his record deal, his movie contract, and possibly even his life. I've never failed so far, and I don't plan on failing this time either, even if Tarin has other ideas.

Content Warning: This is a New Adult Romance, perhaps not suitable for younger readers due to foul language, sexual situations, drug use, and obnoxious rock-n-roll musicians.

About this book: Every time I read another story about a Hollywood star or famous musician going off the deep end, I wonder how they got there. How it was that all the people around them weren’t able to or willing to stop it from happening. It must be easy when a person has more money than he or she can ever spend and people hanging around are leeches, for a person’s view of reality to get really skewed; and that’s a real shame for these talented people who have so much to share with the world. For years I’ve imagined this great job I could have where I’d hang out with celebrities who’ve lost track of the real world (the place where my readers and I live) and get them re-oriented, re-focused on what matters … clean the garbage out of their heads and their lives. Then of course, I couldn’t get that thought out of my head until I wrote a book about it, so here it is! By Degrees. The title of the book is actually the slogan of the Scottish clan Kilgour, something I learned on a trip I made there in the year this book was written.

HERE’S WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT BY DEGREES:

“I love this book and I love how Elle Casey intertwines her books. We see Tarin and Scarlett later in Rebel. I just love Elle's personality and sense of humor. Her main characters are spunky and awesome. People I'd totally be friends with. I just hate when the books end.” ~ Janiece Bradshaw, Amazon Reviewer

“This is the third book by Elle Casey that I've read in a week!!! She is now on my list of absolute favorite authors!!! … I think this was the best so far, but I don't know what else Elle has in store for me!!! She takes you on a ride in every book, the range of emotions is mind boggling. She is a great writer and just when you're feeling sad, she lifts you up in an instant and has you cracking up. Hot sex, gorgeous men, extremely unique and funny. I love her for bringing me into a whole new genre of books! I am addicted! Thanx Elle.” ~ Beverly Low, Amazon Reviewer

“Love, love the characters! The story line was fresh and new, not something similar to all the other books out there.” ~ Samantha Arnwine, Amazon Reviewer

“Having loved Shine Not Burn soooo freaking much, I was very excited to read another book by the talented Elle Casey, and once again she delivered… By Degrees is a funny, sexy and smart read that now has a place on my favorite books shelf. I highly recommend it! This is one of those books I know I'll re-read in the future when looking for something romantic, funny and uplifting…” ~ Dee Montoya, Goodreads reviewer

“I’m impressed every time I read a new book by Elle Casey. She is consistently hilarious, crafts believable and lovable characters, and takes me into a world that I want to inhabit. I love the dynamics between her characters, and the situations they end up in. There's always tons of exciting drama, and heart-wrenching emotion. By Degrees was a twist on the rock star romance, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I look forward to Elle Casey's next book. And the next, and the next, and the next...I'm hooked.” ~ Devon Hartford, Author and Goodreads reviewer
