My Bookshelf the Week of February 1-7, 2014:










He wants her. All of her.

NYPD sniper Matt Donovan is in Hell. Instead of driving his best friend’s little sister home from college, he’s stuck with her roommate—a fresh-faced ray-of-sunshine with a body that makes grown men weep. There’s no way he’ll allow himself to taint the little vixen, no matter how hard she tries to tempt him, so he resigns himself to the longest—and hardest—drive of his life.

Matt’s obvious attraction suits grad student Lucy Mason just fine. She had no idea her brother’s best friend was so deliciously hot. Knowing he’d never have his wicked way with his buddy’s sister, she lies about her identity and seduces him. But Matt’s no fumbling college boy. His desires run deep—and dark—and he wants to teach Lucy what wicked really means.

Matt’s demanding appetites only make Lucy want more. But when her cover's blown, he’s furious—even as his hunger for her becomes insatiable. Matt can’t trust anyone, least of all himself. And he knows all too well that darkness always destroys the light…

The last person Benjamin Kade expected to find in his interrogation room was someone like Carys Munro... 

Kade, a self-proclaimed jackass and militant gun-for-hire, has been working in the same place for the past four years – an island in the middle of nowhere. With only one more year left on his contract, he’s eager to get his life back and leave the island for good. Besides, interrogating and torturing criminals for a living was getting pretty old...

Carys Munro and her entire family have been wrongfully accused and she will do anything to protect them from torture and most certain death, even if it kills her. Her selfless sacrifice begins to melt the cold cage around Kade’s heart, while her beauty revives him in ways he never felt before. 

Before he even knows it, he’s helping her escape, sacrificing his own future to save hers. Now they are both on the run, facing the elements and other dangers head-on. But even when almost assured of their safety, Carys and Kade realize they have another obstacle to face: Is their ever-growing attraction just a symptom of their perilous flight from danger, or is there something deeper happening? And if so, can it survive in the real world?

Our love is on his terms. He contacts me only through notes − unpredictable and untraceable. When we meet, he can touch me, but I’m not allowed to touch him. When we make love, it’s only after I have been bound and blindfolded. It’s the only time I truly feel alive. Which is why I play along with it. For now.

Caden Thaine is the most sinfully beautiful man I have ever seen. But more than that, his touch sets me on fire. And dear God, do I ache for him. I don’t know where he lives or even what he does. But this doesn’t scare me. My only fear is that one day his messages will stop. 

I know he’s hiding something. But that’s okay. I am hiding things too. Like my real name and... who I really am. But what we have is enough. Sort of. And everything works.

Until I decide to follow him.

Soon our dark pasts will collide and I will discover just how much we are both bound by lies.

But appearances can be deceiving.

As their worlds collide, they'll have to make the ultimate choice. Follow their dreams, or give it all up for love.

They say love conquers all, but for Kylie and Trace, it just might wreck everything they've worked for

She was meant to be his assassin
A forced player in a rivalry within The Estate
Yet her loyalty was to no person but herself
When Hope is taken captive by Xander Black
She becomes the one thing that can ensure Aaron’s reign

Raised within a rival crime network, Hope Delacroix wanted nothing to do with The Estate. A fierce warrior, Hope is given no choice but to kill Aaron Carmichael. Caught in her attempt, Hope is captured by Aaron’s top guard in an effort to discover who sent her.

As Xander enslaves Hope to break her down completely, he learns that in the two years since Joseph Carmichael’s death, dissension still exists within The Estate.

“I find it ironic that your name is Hope…especially considering that you have none.” ~ Xander Black
