Driven

One man on a mission…

One hard-working woman…
One bet that’ll make sparks fly…

Mason Falco clawed his way to the top through hard work, killer instincts, and sheer determination. But time is money, and when the owner of a farm refuses to sell the land crucial to making his latest development a success, he’ll do what it takes to convince the sultry, stubborn woman to sign on the dotted line.

Kayla Phillips is holding on by a thread, on the verge of losing the farm she inherited from her grandfather. It’s only a matter of time before she’s forced into foreclosure, but there’s no way she’s selling to Falco. His good looks and sex appeal might work on some women—okay, it works on her too—but she’s not about to sell to a man intent on bulldozing her family’s legacy.

A war of words turns into a wager—and Kayla’s only chance to save the farm. All she has to do is prove to the billionaire that he can’t handle two weeks of living the life of a farmer. She never expected the burning desire she feels whenever Mason’s around. But are his feelings for her genuine, or just a ploy to get what he wants? With her heart and the family business on the line, will she risk it all for love?

 ***A sizzling standalone romance. Each book of the Southern Alphas Series follows a different couple.***


Carter Phillips has returned from multiple deployments, and he’s brought a few demons home with him. War has left him scarred, inside and out, and he’s counting on the peace and isolation of his family’s farm to keep his head screwed on straight. What he doesn’t bargain for is Amy Williams, the new horse trainer. She’s kinder than he deserves, tougher than he expects, with a hidden core of vulnerability that triggers his need to possess and protect her. 

Amy has finally pieced her life back together, after being forced to give up everything and assume a new identity. Now she’s safe, no longer the target of accusations and death threats—but she’s also alone. The only danger to her secrets and her celibacy is Carter Phillips, smoking-hot former Marine—and her boss’s brother. With each passing day, she finds it harder to lie to him about who she is—and who she wants. 

Neither of them wants to talk about the past, but the more time they spend together, the closer they become. When the truth comes out, will it set them free or tear them apart forever?

This hard-bodied football star is used to scoring. But he needs all the right moves to get past a fiery redhead’s defenses in a steamy standalone novel from the bestselling author of Ruined.

Emerson: Talk about bad first impressions. I have too much riding on this job to show up late on my first day looking like the winner of a wet T-shirt contest, all thanks to an arrogant quarterback who drives like he owns the road. Hunter Browning thinks that because he’s famous, he can fix everything with a smile and a wave of his hand. He’s too bronzed, buff, and beautiful for his own good. Or mine. I can’t let on that I’m a fan . . . no matter how much fun we’d have in the sack.

Hunter: Hitting that puddle was my best play since winning the Super Bowl with a touchdown pass. Sure, it’s not my preferred way to get a girl wet, but I’ll make an exception for Emerson Day. She’s got a sharp tongue and a red-hot temper, even with her soaking clothes plastered to her every curve. Now I know exactly what my next play will be: hire Emerson as my personal real-estate agent, save her job—and see if I can take her off the market.

Look for all of Tracy Wolff’s seductive reads:
The Ethan Frost series: RUINED | ADDICTED | EXPOSED | FLAWED
The Sebastian Caine series: PLAY ME WILD | PLAY ME HOT | PLAY ME HARD | PLAY ME REAL | PLAY ME RIGHT | PLAY ME: THE COMPLETE STORY
The Hotwired series: ACCELERATE
The Lightning series: DOWN & DIRTY
The His Royal Hotness series: ROYAL PAIN | ROYAL TREATMENT
And her standalone novels: LOVEGAME | FULL EXPOSURE | TIE ME DOWN
 
Praise for Down & Dirty

“I’m obsessed with Tracy Wolff’s writing style. She’s hilarious, magical, and beyond talented! Down & Dirty was hot and explosive!”—Sarah Robinson, author of the Kavanagh Legends series

“Down & Dirty is an entertaining and steamy sports romance. Tracy Wolff created really good relationships and interactions between all of the characters with plenty of banter and teasing.”—Harlequin Junkie

“I’ve never read anything by Tracy Wolff but after the first chapter of this book . . . I’m a lifelong fan. Dude. Within a few paragraphs, I laughed and cringed and got irritated and swoony . . . it . . . was . . . awesome!!”—Little Miss Bookmark (five stars)

“I definitely loved this book. A great football romance with a heartwarming yet heartbreaking story.”—BookSmacked (five stars)

“Touch Down! Another winner for Tracy Wolff! . . . I may have discovered this author by accident, but I'm smart enough to not let her get away now that I've found her.”—iScream Books Blog (five stars)

“This is a beautiful story about love, loss, dealing with the curveballs life sends you and how having someone beside you can help you deal with anything. This story is magical.”—Cocktails and Books

Includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
Ethan Riggs is in love with a woman he can’t have, and it’s driving him out of his mind.

She’s his best friend’s secret crush and his adopted family’s adored baby sister, which locks her in the look-but-don’t-touch category. It was easy to deny his attraction while she was away at veterinary school. But now that she’s back, the temptation’s growing stronger, and a man can only resist for so long before he finally claims what he wants. 

Doctor Louise Phillips doesn’t have time for a man. Between her work at the animal hospital and helping her sister on the family farm, she barely has time for sleep. But when a rare night out turns into an evening in the slammer, it’s Ethan she calls for help. He’s a great guy—and seriously hot—but he’s never shown any interest in her beyond friendship. But now that he’s agreed to help her beat the charges, working closely with him is giving her ideas. Sexy, sweaty ideas. 

But Ethan has secrets buried deep in his past, and he hates the thought of Louise looking at him with pity—or worse, disappointment. Unfortunately, secrets have a nasty habit of coming out when they’re least expected. When Louise learns the truth, will she stand by her man or kick him to the curb?
