As James and Bianca feel a growing need for each other that neither can deny, circumstances beyond their control intervene, trying to tear them apart. Amidst the ever mounting threat of a monster who wants Bianca dead, and the constant pitfalls of an indiscreet past that James can’t seem to escape, can these two passionate lovers manage to find their happily ever after?
Brandon Ross paid a steep price when he fell for a former friend's wife. Years later, he still holds all women to his old flame's standard. And Emberlin Evans, Brandon's secretary, knows she can’t measure up. She would do anything to make her boss notice her. But when a phone call from his ex sends Brandon chasing her, Em knows it's time to stop waiting for him and move on. Funny how her resignation gets Brandon's attention in a way short skirts didn't.
When Brandon confronts Emberlin, he realizes that he's been blind to his feelings for her—and that the way she always calls him Sir and says “please” has his thoughts turning wicked…
Hired by mob boss Sean O’Malley to protect his youngest son, Reece soon discovers the young man needs more protection from his own family than its enemies.
What Reece doesn’t count on is his instant attraction to the police chief’s beautiful and willing daughter. Abby Mackenzie is the younger sister of a woman with whom Reece once had a torrid affair. He’s determined to not give in to Abby’s come-hither ways. After all, one Mackenzie woman was more than enough.
I don’t do relationships. I don’t do romance. I do kinky AF strangers I never speak to again. Or I did, until Cris Ardmore comes along.
Handsome, charming, and cooks almost as well as he f*cks—which is to say phenomenally—Cris makes me want to break all my carefully cultivated rules. I don’t want to like him and I definitely can’t afford to trust him. Not after what happened the last time I fell in love. The only thing Cris is supposed to be in charge of during our dirty weekends is my body, he needs to keep his too-talented hands off my heart.
**Please note: Alpha in the Sheets is the first book in The After Hours Series and is NOT a stand-alone. Bound in the Streets, the second half of Cris and India's story, is out now!**
ROMANCE TROPES: enemies to lovers, policeman hero, holiday romance
The truth is that I more than like him. I other-L-word him, which doesn’t solve anything; it makes everything worse. I’ve loved people in the past and it got me heartbroken, betrayed, and abandoned so no thank you.
My job that I’m usually so competent at is killing me, Cris wants more, and I can’t handle it all. I can give Cris grand gestures and dirty weekends, but despite everything he’s given me I still can’t hand over my heart. Which sucks, because I don’t think he’s willing to accept any substitutes. Now what the hell am I supposed to do?
**Please note: Bound in the Streets is the second book in The After Hours Series and is NOT a stand-alone. You’ll want to read Alpha in the Sheets, the first half of Cris and India's story, before you read Bound in the Streets.**
