Two very bad boys trying to go legit
Max and Jesse grew up on the streets of Philadelphia, working for the city’s most successful crime boss. They’re inseparable, their friendship honed in blood and danger. They share everything, including a burning desire for the same woman. But an affair now, while they’re trying to go straight, could be dangerous, not only to their friendship but to their lives. And to hers.
One good girl who could be their downfall…
Mary Alice has always walked the straight and narrow, but her secret craving for Max and Jesse is fast becoming an obsession. The two former made men don’t fit into her safe little world of family friends and work. That doesn’t stop her from wanting these intense men who fascinate her. So when fate hands her an opening, Mary Alice proposes an indecent arrangement guaranteed to rock their worlds.
Lovers Luc and Diego have had a hunger for the pretty cook at Sparks Barbecue since they rolled into town three years ago. But everyone knows Jeannette doesn't date, so the men's lust seems destined to go unslaked, no matter how much they want her in their bed. If friendship is all she's willing to offer, Luc and Diego will greedily take it.
That changes quickly when an arsonist throws Jeannette in harm's way, forcing her to find security and comfort in Luc and Diego's arms. But the trio's simmering heat is barely a flicker before the men learn Jeannette has secrets that run dark and deep...presenting them with a challenge unlike any they've yet to face.
Note: This book contains a scene of abuse from 16-year-old Jeannette's past.
The Rescue Me Saga focuses on healing deep, soul-shattering wounds in people who didn’t expect to find love in the bargain. Adam Montague slowly brings together his family of choice as the saga evolves (and, yes, are deeply involved in each other’s stories, so they don’t fade away after their happy endings, so be sure to read in order).
This box set includes the previously combined MASTERS AT ARMS & NOBODY’S ANGEL, plus NOBODY’S HERO and NOBODY’S PERFECT—all three with happy endings!
Book 1 (Combined), MASTERS AT ARMS & NOBODY’S ANGEL:
MASTERS AT ARMS begins the journey of three men, each on a quest for honor, acceptance, and to ease his unspoken pain. Their paths cross at one of the darkest points in their lives. As they try to come to terms with the aftermath--forging an unbreakable bond--will they ever truly become masters of their own fates? Or would fate become master of them?
Book One continues with NOBODY'S ANGEL. Marc d’Alessio keeps all women at a distance. When he rescues Angelina Giardano from a disastrous first experience at his BDSM club, however, an uncharacteristic attraction leaves him torn between his safe, but lonely world, and a possible future with his angel. While trying to protect Angelina from her abusive ex, though, Marc once again finds her at the Masters at Arms Club where she turns his safe, controlled world upside down.
Book 2, NOBODY’S HERO: Retired Marine Master Sergeant Adam Montague has battled through four combat zones, but now finds himself retreating from Karla Paxton, who has declared war on his heart. With a significant age difference, he feels he should be her guardian and protector, not her lover. But Karla's knack for turning up in his bed at inopportune times is killing his resolve to do the right thing. Karla isn't the young girl he rescued nine years earlier—something his body reminds him of every chance it gets.
Book 3, NOBODY’S PERFECT: Savannah/Savi escaped eleven years of abuse at the hands of her father and finally made a safe life for herself and her daughter. But when her father once again threatens her peace of mind—and her daughter’s safety—Savi runs to Damian Orlando for protection. Eight years earlier as Savannah (in MASTERS AT ARMS), she shared one perfect day with Damian that changed both their young lives and resulted in a secret she no longer can hide. But being with Damian reawakens repressed memories and feelings she wants to keep buried. After witnessing a scene with Damian on Savi's first night at his private club, however, she begins to wonder if he could help her regain control of her life and reclaim her sexuality and identity.
Damian, a wounded warrior, has had his own dragons to fight in life, but has never forgotten Savannah. He will lay down his life to protect her and her daughter, but doesn’t believe he can offer more than that. Will two wounded survivors find love and healing in each other’s arms?
