 Escaping With Eve

Justin’s Story

 A full length, stand alone, romantic suspense thriller.

Mysterious and riveting. 

Justin Ross is old enough to know better. Five years have passed since his team took down the violent cult that raised him, but Justin still feels haunted by his unusual childhood and hurried adolescence.

Now, a college graduate and an established Private Investigator, he’s tired of his past defining his future. Ready to start his own life, on his terms, a young woman shows up on his doorstep desperate for help.

Shylo is no ordinary woman and her twin sister, Eve, is no runaway. Willing to risk everything to take her case, Justin defies his own rules and follows his heart, spiraling out of control for the first time in his life.

 Justin willfully ignores the advice of his team and risks everything on the case of this mysterious missing woman.  When the evidence points him in a direction he knows he has no business investigating alone, he finds himself in danger, with nowhere to go but through the darkness he once fought so hard to escape.

 Entrusted with an unstable new mother, her baby, and the radicalized twin-sister of the woman he loves, Justin must come face to face with the devil himself to save them all.

ESCAPE~ A Romantic Suspense Mystery in Three Parts

 

Part One

SOME SECRETS SHOULD NEVER BE SHARED

When beautiful and mysterious Rowan Baker moves in upstairs from Shane Adams, he is instantly captivated. With every encounter he becomes more intrigued, but as an experienced Private Investigator, he can’t shake the suspicion that Rowan is holding on to some big secrets.

 

Rowan has been on the run for years and she’s good at keeping her distance from people. But there’s something about Shane that’s completely tantalizing. Soon, her life becomes more complicated than she ever expected, making her secrets harder and harder to keep. The closer she gets to Shane, the more she fears that he won’t accept her if he learns the truth about her past. When she is forced to let go of one of her secrets, will Shane stay, or will Rowan push him so far away he can’t make his way back?

 

Part Two

SECRETS CAN DESTROY LOVE

Just when Rowan is finally feeling cherished enough to admit her feelings for Shane, she’s forced to reveal one of her secrets. Now she’s running scared, and he’s left wondering what else she’s hiding. When a couple, who seems to have secrets of their own, hire his firm to find their missing sister, all of their lives get even more complicated.

 

Struggling to save herself and her family from her past, Rowan faces the possibility of losing the new life she’s finally built, with a man she may love. But Shane won’t give up without a fight: a fight to stay in her life, uncover her secrets, and protect her.

Torn between fear and trust, will she succumb to her past and let it swallow her whole, or will she open up to Shane and let him help her?

 

Part Three

EVERYONE HAS A BREAKING POINT. WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU FOUND YOURS?

The worst of Shane’s fears have been realized. Just when he thought they could finally settle down and figure out what this undeniable attraction between them means, Rowan has vanished. Is she running from her future, or has her past finally caught up with her?

With nothing but an empty apartment to guide him, Shane is left wondering if she even wants to be found. But now, he is a man with a mission; he’ll have to muster all his resources, use all of his skills and experience to solve the most important mystery of his life. Where is Rowan, and is it too late to save her? Does she even want to be saved, or is a hero the last thing she needs?

Every loner needs a family—and a heart to call home—as a strong, silent type shows the right woman that he can speak the language of love.

“The sexy, alluring bad boys of the True Brothers MC will make your mouth water.”—New York Times bestselling author Heidi McLaughlin

With her lowlife father in prison for manslaughter, Nicole Walker keeps her distance from the biker scene—until she meets the stud running security at her best friend’s wedding. “Tank” is big, mean, and trouble from every direction. Yet Nicole can’t take her eyes off his chiseled body, or deny the pure electricity she feels when he returns her gaze. Guys like Tank are supposed to be a one-way ride to heartbreak. So why, after a scorching night in his bed, does Nicole only want more?

From his tour in the Marines to his sister’s disastrous marriage, Tank has seen the worst that life has to offer. Ever since his father’s death, Tank’s been fiercely protective of his family—and the True Brothers have always had his back. But nothing could prepare him for a woman like Nicole, who’s determined to break down the walls around his heart. When violence strikes, placing Nicole in harm’s way, Tank digs deep to find the courage to keep her safe—and the strength to love without limits.

Look for all of Gillian Archer’s smoldering True Brothers MC romances:
RUTHLESS | REBELLIOUS | RESILIENT | ROUGH RIDE

And don’t miss RELUCTANTLY ROYAL, “an entertaining, sexy, opposites-attract romance” (Harlequin Junkie).

Praise for Resilient

“[A] roller coaster ride . . . Aggression and romance work in parallel in the seductive third True Brothers Motorcycle Club novel. . . . [Gillian] Archer keeps the pulsing energy flowing through a tautly plotted and at times violent tale. Her characters are complex people who could easily appear in anyone’s life.”—Publishers Weekly

“Do you love motorcycle club romances with sexy alpha males and strong, feisty women? This book is for you! Resilient is all of that.”—Kelly’s Book Blog

“I have become a huge fan of MC books since I started reading them a little over a year ago. . . . Something about bad boys who have a heart of gold gets to me, and the men in the True Brothers MC series are definitely that.”—Life of a Crazy Mom

“For a romance novel about bikers, Resilient had a lot more twists and turns than I expected. It wasn’t just love and sex, this book actually had an awesome plot that kept me hook.”—Freeing Fantasy

Brett

Devlin

Easton


Full description is below:


SEALs of Honor: Brett


High seas terror and international intrigue all wrapped up in homegrown problems of the loved-and-lost-and-found-again variety…


Rescuing hostages trapped on a yacht in the middle of the open ocean is a routine mission for an elite SEAL like Brett. But when one of the hostages turns out to be his ex-girlfriend and her kids, the same-old, same-old takes a turn for the discombobulating. Particularly because she's single again…


As a way to heal, Ceci walked away from Brett years ago, straight into another intense relationship. Now she's a widow raising two kids. Her plan to stay single and safe from heartbreak feels a million miles away when she comes face-to-face with her rescuer--the man she's never been able to forget. Unfortunately, "safe" is no longer in the cards anymore…in life or love.



SEALs of Honor: Devlin


Cupid apparently has a soft spot for SEALs and he's lined his sights up on Devlin next. He's not looking for romance, but he finds the right woman in the worst possible place.


As part of a military unit helping train Afghan soldiers, Devlin is learning how to use the latest combat drones. After a murder is committed on the base, suspicion falls on the drone's drop-dead-gorgeous designer. Devlin can't stop himself from running to her rescue. Following their return Stateside, another employee in the same company turns up dead. Once again, all evidence points to the designer.


Bristol had no choice but to take her latest drone models to war-torn Afghanistan, given how behind schedule she is in her work and because her boss is pressuring her. The last thing she expected was disaster to strike and, for all the world, she looks like the one to blame. When the bodies pile up and her research goes unfathomably missing along with her best friend, she's determined to find out what's going on, damn the danger.


Devlin has made it his mission to keep her safe while she seems to be doing everything in her power to make his job--and resisting her--impossible.



SEALs of Honor: Easton


Trips to Canada's wilderness for joint military training are something Easton always looks forward to. Meeting the lovely photographer contracted to capture the base and trainees for new marketing materials adds a whole new twist to a straight-forward routine…a twist with both a light and dark undertone.


Summer tends to get lost in her art so she's been called ditzy, absent-minded, and a host of less flattering names. She doesn't let any of it bother her. Her passionate nature has a rewarding creative outlet, and she adores traveling for her work. 


Unfortunately, her undistracted concentration means she isn't always taking care of herself the way she should. So, when she's attacked, Easton is the one who realizes she's unwittingly stumbled into a dangerous situation and she needs his help to stay safe.


The escalation of violence has Easton holding Summer close enough to kiss, close enough to shatter her ability to focus on a single other thing…

Your hearts were swayed, and your votes were counted.
Now, Anna’s decision is revealed in the conclusion to this uniquely enthralling series.

 
Joaquin Delacruz never thought he’d see the day when he’d beg for the FBI’s help—especially when that involved working with Special Agent Grayson Sloane. And Gray is no more eager to work alongside the criminal who stole Anna’s heart and exposed her to his dangerous world.  
 
But with Anna held captive by a lethal enemy, Joaquin and Grayson will need to set aside their jealousies or risk losing the woman they both love.
 
Emotions are bound to explode, with near-catastrophic consequences. By the time Anna realizes which man truly owns her heart, body, and soul, it may be too late to save him…

“Two enemies will compete to win Anna’s heart; I’ll be around to see how the battle ends – I highly recommend joining in the fun.”—Books Books More Books blog

The tattoo artist with a heart of gold.
The playboy with his own hidden scars.
The international rockstar who longs for a home.
The mechanic with a dark past.

These are the heroes of Second Circle Tattoos. Trent, Cujo, Dred, Reid. And now all four books are together for the first time in a fabulous, low priced eBook box set featuring an exclusive epilogue. Why pick one book boyfriend when you can have all four?

The Strongest Steel
Harper Connelly never expected to find herself outside of a tattoo parlor at one in the morning. The scars that decorate her back are just one more reminder of things she'd rather forget, the past she wants to leave far behind her, but before she can move on, she needs him. Trent Andrews has his own reasons for specializing in inking over scars. And there's no way in hell he's going to turn Harper away. Being with Harper is like going ten rounds in the ring—exhilarating, powerful, and dangerous. She stirs feelings in him he thought were long gone... if he can only get past her carefully constructed defenses.

The Fractured Heart
Tattoo artist Brody "Cujo" Matthews knows how to keep things simple. In life and in love.That all changes when he meets Drea Caron, the definition of high maintenance and sizzling curves. And the one woman he doesn’t want to walk away from. Andrea "Drea" Caron is broke and tired. After years of caring for her ailing mom, she's at the end of her rope trying to manage the piling medical bills, two jobs, and a life placed on hold. She certainly doesn’t need the added frustration of a sexy playboy tattoo artist messing up her carefully balanced life. Too bad the universe has other ideas.

The Purest Hook
Rugged, hot, and rock hard, Dred Zander is exactly the type of man that normally sends Pixie running. Not dreaming about running her hands down his washboard abs...and lower. The lead singer and guitarist for the band Preload embodies trouble behind his quick smile and guarded eyes, and Pixie left trouble behind her years ago along with the name Sarah Jane Travers and the pathetic trailer her mom called home. But Dred has other ideas. Pixie's sweet hazel eyes, purple hair and kaleidoscopic tattoo of exotic flowers that swirl up her arm haunt his dreams, and he's ready to fight like hell to keep that feeling.

The Darkest Link
When her car breaks down off the side of a lonely highway far from her sunny Miami home, tattoo artist Lia never expected her very own white knight to ride up on the back of a barely street-legal motorcycle...and she never expected to fall for her dark savior. A bruised heart Lia is not looking for forever, and the hot mechanic, with his sexy scruff and shaggy hair, is simply impossible to resist. He's the perfect candidate for a mind-blowingly-perfect, no-strings-attached one-night stand. But when their fling becomes something more and Reid surprises her at her tattoo studio, Second Circle Tattoos, he's in for a shock—and a fist to the face—when his past and present collide.

The plan was to ruin a man’s life. Not seduce the man’s daughter. But sometimes, the unlikeliest of people becomes the target. And sometimes revenge can make a man vulnerable in ways he didn’t know existed...

I’m bored. Tired of my meaningless life. The garden parties, the white sundresses, and politely saying “no” to the sliver of cake—it’s the life my mother and father wanted for me, worked tirelessly for me to have. And the monotony makes me reckless.

But when I go to Blake Vandershall’s party, his dark, menacing eyes and his hard, unyielding stare make me want things that have never been offered to me before. He’s the type who would ravish you in your father’s law office. The kind who would lie without blinking an eye in order to get what he wants.

And the repressed bad girl in me wants to give him what he needs.

**

Daisy Nowell is nothing to me.

I don’t care that underneath that blue-blood lifestyle, she’s burning to be unleashed. My victim is her father—the one man who had the chance to save my mother from a brutal fate. The coward did nothing, and it’s my turn to make his life a living hell.

He’s about to lose his precious daughter to me, a man whose sole mission is to destroy him. I’ll do anything, say anything, in order to tear this woman from her safe life as I hurtle down my path towards destruction. But I didn’t count on her seeing through me. I didn’t count on her tapping into my weaknesses, pushing my dark heart in ways I don’t want. Ways I hate.

I need to find a way to exact my vengeance and leave this all behind. Before this woman ruins me for good.
