Blurb

Pleasure is business.
That’s our motto here at Hotel O.
No strings attached gratification is what we provide. Nothing is off limits.
And all of it stays within these walls.
My job as the organizer of these events requires a personal sacrifice.
Girlfriends are a liability I can’t afford.
So I get my own satisfaction somewhere else.
Online.
Anonymous.
Nothing beyond a one-night stand …
And I’ve found the perfect toy to play with.
A persistent, equally wicked girl that I can’t say no to.
The girl who’s going to make me risk it all.

Welcome to Hotel O … Enjoy your stay.

Author’s Note: Hotel O is complete and utter filthiness. Expect lots of debauchery … with multiple people. Please do not read if you’re easily offended or do not enjoy romances that explore the boundaries of depravity … Don’t say I didn’t warn you.






Excerpt

Her hands move up along her back and clip off the bra.
When that too tumbles to the floor, my eyes focus on her nipples that tighten as I stare. Her face isn’t red anymore like before. She looks confident, completely at ease. Like she’s not at all afraid of what I’m going to say … as if she already knows I like what I see.
Not soon after her panties follow, and I’m finding myself getting a hard-on just watching her stand still in the middle of my office, completely naked and ready to bend to my will.
But this girl isn’t here for me, she’s here for my clients.
At least … that’s what she wants me to think. But I’m still not convinced.
“Turn,” I say, swirling my finger in the air.
Her hips sway as she spins on her heels, her thick ass pushing all the right buttons. She’d be a great performer. Definitely.
But there is something about her. Something that I can’t let go.
Defiance. It seeps through everything she does. The way she walks, how she struts, the way she looks at me with that intent gaze, as if she’s waiting for my reaction and it never comes.
Too tough to say no to … but I’m going to have to make the call based on what I know my clients need right now. And this isn’t it.
“Pass,” I say.
She stays put, the look on her face rapidly changing from confusion to annoyance. “What?”
“It’s a no from me,” I say. “Put your clothes back on.”
She parts her lips, but again no words flow. Then she slams it shut again and silently picks up her things. No matter how many times I try to divert my eyes back to my laptop so I can continue finishing work, I keep glancing at her as she puts her clothes back on. For some reason I’m agitated, but I have no clue why. The whole room is oozing with an uncomfortable silence, and I don’t like it one bit.
As she walks towards the door, I get up. Something compels me to say, “Wait.”
What that something is eludes me, but I can’t allow her to leave.
She stops in her tracks, still facing away from me, as if my voice was the only thing that made her stay.
I step away from my desk and approach her, narrowing my eyes to get a good look. There’s something about her … about her body, her voice, her eyes … and I need to know …
“Put your hair up,” I command.
Her hand wraps around her brown hair and tugs it up into a ponytail.
I don’t even need to see her face to know …
It’s her.
I place a hand on her shoulder and lean in. A grin spreads across my lips as a rumbling noise leaves my throat. “I know it’s you … Kitten …”

Blurb

Mystery man, recluse, finance guru… Virgin.

I was a shut-in for a reason. With too many secrets, too much to hide, and way too much at stake, I spent years in my mansion in the woods, never trusting a soul.
So, when a stranger showed up at my door, with her plans to save the world, I should have sent her away, like I’d always done.
From the second she arrived, I couldn’t resist Veronica Cruz. She was everything I’d been missing—passionate, generous, and so damned sexy.
I let her into my life, gave her everything—including my heart.
Now, the one thing she wants is the truth. The question is, will she still love me when she knows my secret?

Loving the Secret Billionaire is a sexy standalone novella in the Love at Last series, featuring a virgin hero and a slightly older woman.

Originally published in the Rogue Desire anthology, this edition has been expanded with new material.

Excerpt

“Why are you helping me?”
I shook my head for a few beats—deny, deny, deny… Which was what I always did. But if I denied it, then she’d leave. And I wouldn’t get another chance.
Now I had to put it in a way that wouldn’t piss her off.
“Seemed unfair.”
“What did?”
“You going it alone against that family.” I didn’t add that I’d gone over their financials—hers and theirs—and those three extra zeros in their campaign coffers seemed like an unfair advantage. I doubted she’d seen my donation yet, or she’d have said something… Although no way could she follow the paper trail back to me on that one.
“That’s so pathetic.” I hated the defeat in her voice.
“What is?”
“You felt sorry for me, so you—”
“Hell, no. That’s not what it is.”
“Well then, what?”
You smell good and your passion gets me hard wasn’t exactly something I could say, so I went with, “You believe in your mission. That worked for me.”
“It’s still pitiful.”
“Is it? You mean the part about being alone or the part where you truly believe in what you’re doing?”
“I don’t… I’m not sure.”
“Because, if you mean being alone.” I waved a hand toward the empty house behind me. “It’s kind of my thing.”
“I’m sorry, I didn’t—”
“I know.” I half laughed. None of this was going how I’d pictured it. Then again, I hadn’t exactly planned this thing out. I’d just gone against all of my own rules and helped a stranger. “I’m not great at joking. In person, at least.”
“In person?”
Crap. Wrong thing to say.
“I uh…spend a lot of time online.”
“Oh. Right.” Her feet shuffled on the porch boards. Was she about to leave?
“Would you…” I cleared my throat and ignored the voice of reason screaming at me to shut up. “Would you like a coffee?”
“Oh no, I couldn’t interrupt your work.” She took a step back.
“You’re not. I mostly work at night.”
“What is it you d—” If she didn’t ask, I wouldn’t have to lie, so I stopped her.
“You want something stronger than coffee? I’ve got beer. Not much else.” I lifted the bottom hem of my shirt and wiped the sweat from my forehead.
“Oh, no, I should—” She exhaled with a strange whistling sound. I dropped the shirt and waited for her to finish. “I’d love to.”
“Come on in.” I said the words, she slid inside, and now it was too late to kick her out, even if I wanted to.
Which I didn’t, though it was clear this was a very bad idea.

Save a fire truck, ride a firefighter. Isn't that what they say?

Ben Riggs says he loves me. He says he hasn't stopped thinking about me since he broke my heart and chased me out of town all those years ago...

I say liar, liar, pants on fire.

And boy, do those bright yellow, flame-resistant fireman pants look good on him. I'm aching to feel those big, rough hands clenching on my hips and to collect on the illicit promises burning in his dark blue eyes.

Self-control goes up in flames every time he flashes that arrogant smile. So I give in—because a woman has needs. (Am I right, ladies?) He can have my body but my heart is off-limits. I've worked hard over the past few years to prove to myself that I can be successful without him in my life.

But Ben says he won't stop until he wins me back—mind, body and heart. He says I'd better stop trying to resist him. He may be a fireman but I'm the one fighting like hell against the inferno of lust and nostalgia closing in on us.

And it's a fight I can't afford to lose...


Hot Boy is a steamy, laugh-out-loud second chance, firefighter romance set in small town Illinois. It is book 4 in the Blue Collar Bachelors series.

Trailer



Excerpt

His face disappears into the curve of my neck and he feathers kisses on my skin. This is crazy. I can't stay silent anymore.

"Ben?"

He tenderly pushes my bangs from my face and stares deeply into my eyes. "Yes, sweetheart?" His breath fans lightly over my face. I hear harps in the background and angel feathers float down from the sky...

Eye roll.

"This is the cheesiest moment of my life," I snort.

He falls back onto his haunches and glares down at me in the dim room. "Angie, I'm trying to make this romantic."

"I'm not your girlfriend. I don't need romantic. I need hard and deep."

He hisses and that simple sound tells me that my words have stung him. "Angela..."
"I wish you'd stop treating me like some fragile, delicate flower. Maybe I was once upon a time but now I'm not. Because you broke me...So fuck me like you mean it."


A tense moment passes between us as I struggle to read his expression.

Propped up on his powerful forearms, he hovers above me, pinning me to the mattress with his icy glare. "So, you want me to fuck you, huh?"

I lift a hand and trace the sinewy ridges of his forearm. "Yes--Fuck. Me." I grind out the words through a clenched jaw, shamelessly conveying my need.

After a long moment of hesitation, something inside of him seems to break. His eyes harden. All emotion slips away. The calloused palm of his left hand rides a path from the curve of my ass to the bend of my knee. His fingers tighten roughly and the light burn of it spreads deliciously across my skin. "You're sure that's what you want?" His voice is dangerously raspy and low.

I feel my reaction in the space between my thighs. "Yes."

With a hard yank, he locks my left leg around his hip. "Do you know what you're asking me to do?"

"Yes." I'm asking you to turn off everything that you think you feel and give me an orgasm that will make me forget that I still love you.

Excerpt

His wide, warm palm grazed her lower back as they wove their way through the tables to the exit. They crossed over the water garden in silence, slowing as they reached a fork in the path.
“Which way?” Deacon asked. “I’ll walk you back.”
“That’s sweet, but you really don’t have to. It’s a five-star resort, not downtown Los Angeles.”
Deacon kept walking. “True. But you know, I took you to dinner and all.”
She arched a brow at him. “It’s also an all-inclusive resort. Maybe I took you.”
“Maybe you did.”
He flashed her that slightly lopsided grin that hit her right in the chest. She conceded to the walk, and together, they followed the brick path. The resort was dark, but lights along the sidewalk lit the path and shined up the skinny gray trunks of the swaying palms. It was quiet, and when they didn’t pass even one other person, she was glad he was walking her back.
She slowed as they came to the breezeway leading to her building and pointed up the steps to the second floor. “I’m up there, so…”
Deacon started up the steps. “I’ll walk you to the door. I’m funny like that.”
She probably should have said no, insisted that she could make it to her door on her own. Because of course she could. But she didn’t insist, just followed enormously glad she’d removed the HONEYMOON banner from her door.
They reached her room, and she turned to face him. Just the two of them now, up here, alone at her door. She felt a slight buzzing in her head that had nothing to do with alcohol.
“Well, Clare of the here and now.”
She rolled her eyes at the reminder of her earlier word-vomit ramble. “It was nice to meet you.” She stuck out her hand, hoping it wasn’t sweaty.
“It was nice to meet you, too.”
It didn’t feel like a simple handshake as he wrapped his fingers around hers. “I had fun tonight. You turned what might have been a horrible night into something surprisingly nice.”
“I’m glad.”
“Thank you for catching me and saving my top and for dinner and talking and…” And maybe she could stoptalking.
“You’re welcome.”
A frog gave a low croak, and another answered, but she figured the pounding of her heart was louder.
The buzzing in her head grew louder, and she felt dizzy from looking into his eyes and staring at his lips because she wanted him to kiss her. She wanted to feel those smooth, firm lips on hers, to taste him and feel his arms around her.I'm losing my mind.
“You’re beautiful,” he said. “I’ve been wanting to say that all night.” He lifted his hand and lightly brushed his thumb over her cheek.
Then he leaned in, and she moved. Just…moved. In and up, her fingers twisting in the front of his shirt. She was just falling into the taste of him, just getting that warm, tingling flood of a first kiss when her brain fully registered that he’d been leaning in to kiss her cheek.
“I’m sorry.” She swallowed hard, felt a stinging heat flooding into her cheeks, and wished desperately to disappear. Deacon was staring at her in complete confusion. That made two of them. “I’m… really sorry.”
She spun to her door. A stiff wind sang through the open-air hallway, slapping her hair across her eyes. How she got her key in the lock, she had no idea. Mumbling one more apology over her shoulder, she opened the door and closed it behind her. She stood, heart pounding in mortification, her lips buzzing.
The champagne glasses and fruit and cheese tray had been cleared. The bed had been turned back, and the damn swans were back, nestled in the center of the bed and kissing right on their terrycloth lips.

Holly
Growing up, I was treated like a Princess.
But everyone knows, to get your happily ever after, you have to fight for the fairy-tale.
And I’d certainly endured more than my fair share of fights.
Relentlessly bullied at boarding school, my brothers brought me home to help me heal.
But I was scarred by the secrets I harboured, both inside and out.
Being home though, means risking everyone finding out my ugly truth.
And I can’t let that happen.

Jack
My family's a mess.
It's probably why I spend more nights asleep in my ute, than I do in my own bed.
I don't have the time or the energy to deal with anything more.
One day at a time is all I can handle right now.
Yet when I see her, the broken girl sitting alone in the dirt, I can't simply drive past.
Before I know what's happening my life's tangled with my tortured, beautiful neighbour.

And there's nowhere else I'd rather be.
