He has no idea how sexy he is.

Even as a successful construction business owner, Tony Walters’ ex-wife’s mental illness almost drove him over the edge. Too many years loveless and abused has left him afraid to try to meet another woman, much less form a relationship.

She's just too shy to even meet his eyes.

In one instant left a childless widow, Nikki Wilkes couldn’t imagine romance would ever be in her life again, much less passion and deep, never-ending love.

Two mature adults sidestep each other for five years until fate brings them together in a sweet, passionate, erotic adventure of sexual exploration and self-discovery. A perfect mixture of Southern charm and hospitality and European sophistication, the tall Italian-American sweeps the funny, smart, kinky Kentucky girl off her feet and into his bed, and together the sparks they throw off ignite their world.

The new home they build together draws them closer to his family and each other and into a new life filled with laughter and love, not to mention a big kitchen full of friends and fun as Nikki becomes the glue that holds the family together with her cooking, hugs, and mothering.

But just as everything looks rosy, a secret-fueled mystery unfolds when an unknown threat attempts to ruin Tony’s business and maybe even hurt him. As the criminal activity becomes more and more focused on destroying their happiness, it’s obvious it’s personal. And someone’s going to get hurt – or worse. It’s just a matter of time.

Sex, humor, and secrets collide in this blistering start to the series to prove that they’re not getting older – they’re just getting started!

Combo volume contains The Groundbreaking, a prequel that offers readers background on the nine main characters in the series.

 Size, ability, and stamina. And don’t forget six feet and eight inches of leather-wrapped muscle. It takes a big man to tear down walls – in more ways than one.

You're a successful businessman. A molten-blooded Italian hunk. And the newest, hottest, most in-demand service Dom/top in a 500-mile radius, with dozens of women falling at your feet. So, which woman? How do you choose?

That's easy - you pick the one who can't stand you.

And that's exactly what Vic has done. He's tried desperately to get the wrong woman out of his heart, and it looks like he may have succeeded. And just when he thinks everything in his life is falling into place, Cupid plays a nasty joke on him and he falls for the one woman who doesn't want to be anywhere near him. Somehow it isn't already bad enough that he has a secret keeping him from having a loving, long-term relationship; to make matters worse, if he wants to have a chance with the ice princess, he has to keep her alive long enough to tear down the walls she's built around herself.

Laura is as prickly as they get, but there's a reason. Her clothes hide a secret that she's sure would make any man run, and that secret is about to get her killed. The trauma she endured during her service to her country left her unable to feel any emotion or trust anyone, and the idea of ever letting a man touch her is out the window. Alone and untrusting, Laura didn't expect to meet a man who would promise to keep her safe and would die to keep that promise. And when her past wants to kill her to keep her quiet, can she open up to him before it's too late?

The second full-length novel in the Love Under Construction series, Tearing Down Walls is a fun, erotic, romantic, and suspenseful romp that takes you back into the world of the Walters family of Louisville, Kentucky. It features many characters over the age of 40 and contains too many steamy, hedonistic sex scenes to be suitable for anyone under 18 years of age. Step into the Walters' world and have some fun!

There are moments in every life when we make a choice that defines who we really are. Peyton Stokes is about to step into that moment.

Peyton Stokes is pretty sure no woman will ever want him. When he strapped that prosthesis on his lower left leg, he took on the belief that he was off the market for a meaningful relationship forever. That self-imposed label of "cripple" has followed him and dogged him. On a whim, he decides to ask Molly Walters - mature, smart, and beautiful - to go out with him, only to be shocked when she asks him out first. One chance is all he needs to prove to her that he can get the job done, and he wants to take that chance.

Problem is, his best friend, José Flores, unknowingly decides that Molly looks like a pretty good prospect too.

Even though she's having fun with Peyton, Molly can't help but be drawn to the dark haired, dark eyed ex-cage fighter turned security specialist. The fact that he's almost two decades younger than her doesn't hurt her self-esteem either. While Peyton soothes everything in Molly's soul, José's brand of balls-to-the-wall, red-hot fun turns up the heat to scorching every time he touches her. She knows she eventually has to tell them about each other and make some kind decision, and Molly makes one.

She wants them both.

That revelation brings about a turn of events no one could've anticipated. When things fall apart, Molly tries to pick up the pieces, but that's hard when someone you love has disappeared. It'll take everyone who loves him to find him, with or without the help of the one man he loves the most. And that one man has to decide: Are his labels worth losing not one, but two people he loves? He's got to decide quickly. Otherwise, it may be too late - eternally. 

Revisit the world of the Walters family in this concluding novel of the Love Under Construction series. You'll find out who lives, who dies, and who expands their world - and their family. And in Renovating a Heart, Book 3, we were left with the question of Nikki Walters' health. That question lives large in Planning an Addition as Tony Walters is left to face the looming prospect that he may have to live out the rest of his life without the only woman who ever really loved him. He's not entirely sure he can do that, but all hope has been exhausted and time is running out. Someone in the family holds the key, but Tony will have to be willing to let her step in. And that will take a giant leap of the faith he's pretty sure he's exhausted.

Funny how everything changes when it's a matter of life or death.

Steve McCoy only keeps a submissive for a month. No complications, no regrets.

Steve McCoy has managed to keep his hideously painful past locked away and turned himself into a successful attorney and businessman. The blond Viking of a man has everything any guy could want - nice home, nice apartment, beautiful luxury car, plenty of cash, and access to all the subs he could ever want through the BDSM club he owns, Eden's Gate.

But that may change when cute, buxom, sexy little Kelly Markham walks into his life.

Kelly Markham's past was painful too, but she's managed to power on through. When her friend Nikki sends her to Steve for legal assistance and Kelly discovers he owns a club, she can't wait to visit. Adrift since her late Dom passed away, she's eager to find a way back into the lifestyle, and to possibly get to know the hot, blue-eyed hunk.

Steve can offer her that by signing a D/s contract with her, with one catch: It's only for one month. And that's fine with both of them when things go awry initially. But as they give it another chance and their chemistry starts to heat up, each of them begins to wonder what a permanent arrangement could offer. And neither wants to broach the subject, expose their true feelings, and risk heartbreak and pain.

As the month rolls by, Kelly makes a discovery about Steve's past and sets out to help him overcome his demons, a thing Steve considers the ultimate betrayal. But in the process, she unleashes a secret so deadly that someone will have to pay. Unfortunately, that person is her. And it looks doubtful that she'll get out of the demon's grasp with her life.

An angry Steve refuses to open himself up to help her until he’s confronted with a revelation that’s too important to ignore. He has a decision to make: Do the right thing or lose the one person who's finally made the commitment to love him.

Renovating a Heart, Book 3 in the Love Under Construction series, is full of hot D/s sex with a healthy dose of ménage, violence, suspense, and heartbreak. And it's a story of hope and forgiveness great enough to give the most jaded a reason to believe in love. Read it following Laying a Foundation with Prequel, The Groundbreaking (Book 1), and Tearing Down Walls (Book 2), to really get to know the characters intimately and follow their story.

He already knew, but he's about to be reminded: Your whole world can change forever in a split second.

Doug Benton's heart was broken when he misread the cues of a purely sexual threesome. But when he meets Vivian, the sister of his employer's daughter-in-law, he wonders if she's as hungry for a real relationship as he is. There's just one problem: He's a Dominant. And Vivian is possibly the most vanilla woman he's ever met. That knowledge leaves him wondering if they could ever have anything that would last.

Life has left her fragile.

Vivian Norton has been dumped one too many times - the last time, at the altar. To make matters worse, she's fallen in love with the one man she most certainly shouldn't have. When she meets Doug at a Walters family gathering, her first thought of the good looking security agent is simply, What a heartbreaker! As Vivian gets to know Doug, she begins to wonder if they could have something more than just a fling and, even though she's scared, his calm strength gives her security and hope.

As time passes, it becomes more and more obvious to the strong, passionate young man and the sweet, innocent, curvy redhead that they want a relationship that'll stand the test of time. Everything falls into place, and they discover that each is exactly what the other needs.

But all it takes is one simple mistake to ruin everything.

And when Doug makes that mistake, there's no going back. He doesn't mean to. He tries to fix it, to take it back, to make it all right, but Vivian is having none of that. And when he finally forces her hand, he learns a painful lesson.

There's no coming back from some mistakes.

In this first volume of the Citadel, the first spinoff series of the popular Love Under Construction series, revisit the world of the Walters family in Louisville, Kentucky, and two characters you knew but wanted to know better. It's a story of love, loss, and what happens when "I'm sorry" just may not be enough. Is there hope?

In Deanndra Hall's stories? There's always hope.
