During a stormy night, on his way from Birmingham to Swansea, Mr Ewan Morris’ horse carriage appears to have run over a young woman dressed in white on the road. Ewan decides to make sure that she is unhurt and follows after her, however rash actions may sometimes have unforeseen consequences.
An extract from the story:
"But still, this was nothing like that. It truly was the most innocent kiss. Nothing more, and nothing less," he thought as he gently pressed his lips against hers.
And there was something absolutely maddening about kissing this slow and careful. Something perfectly irresistible about kissing so softly and restrained with the knowledge of what could be should they crossed the line. "Like walking on spring ice when you are tipsy," Ewan thought. Exhilarating, fun, but utterly dangerous.
The kiss was in fact far more arousing than any harlot’s secret street skills. The wicked part of Ewan screamed in frustrations, while the gentlemanly part nodded in agreement. He had promised a kiss and would not take liberties..."

"An Addictive, sexy, and intense Hollywood love story. Turn up the air con . . . this is one, hot read."- Angie's Hearthrobs and Heroes.
Movie director Jake Wild lives up to his name: he's the wildest player in town. He's also Hollywood royalty. From a family dynasty of powerful directors and producers, Jake's home is a movie set. With reams of hot starlets at his beck and call, Jake can get any woman he wants. But with his new movie, Skye's The Limit in pre-production, he's decided it's time to get serious and change his philandering ways.
Oscar-winning Star Davis also lives up to her name. She's an A-list megastar. Hell-raisingly beautiful, she tosses men aside like used Kleenex. She commands 20 million per movie--or at least did until drugs, alcohol, wild partying, and a police arrest sent her into rehab. Now she's out, squeaky clean, and determined to win the role she was born to play: the lead in Skye's The Limit - ready to re-conquer Hollywood.
But there's just one problem: Jake doesn't want this "liability on legs" near his precious movie. But Star has wily ways of getting what she wants. And apart from the role of Skye, what she wants is Jake right where he belongs:
Under her thumb.
Lights, camera, action . . .
But the action is not what Jake expected.
Sexy strong language and situations.

The Mount Trilogy continues with Defiant Queen...
I’m his entertainment. His toy. Payment on a debt.
I tell myself I hate him, but every time he walks into the room, my body betrays me. How can I want him and fear him in the same moment?
They told me he’d mess with my head. Make it go to war with my body.
But I didn’t realize it would be complete anarchy.
I should’ve known better. When Mount’s involved, there are no rules.
I will not surrender. I will not show weakness. I’ll stand my ground and make it out of this bargain with my heart and soul intact.
But he has other plans . . .
Defiant Queen is the second book of the Mount Trilogy and should be read after Ruthless King. Mount and Keira's story concludes in Sinful Empire.
