jompsynopsis

Warning: This book is a love triangle, and does involve cheating and the leading man can be a d**k, so please beware when you do decide to read this book.

 

My life’s been turned upside down thanks to my cheating father. I have to leave my friends, my school – everything – and start over.

 

I’m not just moving to a different town, I’m moving to a different country.

 

I finally start to adjust to my new life….

 

Until Sabastian Cooper. Gorgeous with piercing blue eyes and lead singer of a local rock band.

 

I’ve been told he’s is a player, a womaniser. He sleeps with anything with a pulse, and my cousin is crazy about him, so why can’t I get him out of my head? It doesn’t help that he promises to f**ck me every place imaginable.

 

I try and move on and date someone else, not expecting the rocker boy to end up dating my cousin. We try and be friends, be nice to one another but being nice ends up with us getting closer.

 

Once we got one taste, we have difficulty in stopping.

I feel all that I can reading this story. I found myself laughing and crying. I could understand where the characters are coming from. Very proud of the main character, she has serious integrity. Such a fun read.

Blog Tour w/Review – Off Campus

Off Campus, Bend or Break Series Book 1

by Amy Jo Cousins

Date of Publication: January 27, 2015

 

 

Blurb:

 

Everyone’s got secrets. Some are just harder to hide.

 

With his father’s ponzi scheme assets frozen, Tom Worthington believes finishing college is impossible unless he can pay his own way. After months sleeping in his car and gypsy-cabbing for cash, he’s ready to do just that.

 

But his new, older-student housing comes with an unapologetically gay roommate. Tom doesn’t ask why Reese Anders has been separated from the rest of the student population. He’s just happy to be sleeping in a bed.

 

Reese isn’t about to share his brutal story with his gruff new roommate. You’ve seen one homophobic jock, you’ve seen ’em all. He plans to drag every twink on campus into his bed until Tom moves out. But soon it becomes clear Tom isn’t budging.

Tom isn’t going to let some late-night sex noise scare him off, especially when it’s turning him on. But he doesn’t want any drama either. He’ll keep his hands, if not his eyes, to himself.

 

Boundaries have a way of blurring when you start sharing truths, though. And if Tom and Reese cross too many lines, they may need to find out just how far they can bend…before they break.

 

Warning: This book contains cranky roommates who vacillate between lashing out and licking, some male/male voyeurism, emotional baggage that neither guy wants to unpack, and the definitive proof that sound carries in college housing.

Off Campus (Bend or Break, #1)Off Campus by Amy Jo Cousins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Tom goes back to college only to find his roommate was promised he would live alone. They do not get along, but Tom could care less what Reese wants since he only needs a place to crash and get the much needed sleep he deprives himself of. Can they find common ground?

Reese talks to Tom finally, and they make a truce of sorts. They live like hermits in just their room, never leaving except for food, classes, and to shower. Tom works himself to the bone to pay tuition on the weekends, but otherwise lives a closed off existence.

Tom starts to notice his feelings for Reese and they end up friends. Reese is kind of a people person, so eventually they come out to the main room to study instead of just hiding away. Will the pasts that have scarred them ruin their future? Can Tom forge a live of his own and move past his fathers mistakes?

I found this book so riveting! I could NOT put it down. I know this will be a book I read again and keep on my shelf. I loved it!

About Amy Jo Cousins:

 

Readers interested in autographed copies of Amy Jo’s paperback books can order them from Chicago’s fabulous independent bookstore, The Book Cellar. They can ship anywhere, and will email me to let me know there are books to be signed if you care to order them!

 

I didn’t read a romance novel until seventh grade. Mafia dons and samurai warlords? Check. Love stories? Not so much. Then my grandma showed up one summer with a garbage bag full of books. Her friend belonged to all of the Harlequin and Silhouette Book of the Month Clubs and passed on her copies to my grandma when she was done with them.

 

My grandma never met a Louis L’Amour book she didn’t like, but she had no idea what to do with three hundred romance novels in a trash bag. Since it was clear that I was the book black hole, capable of sucking in uncountable numbers of novels while deaf to the world around me, I was the natural beneficiary of this windfall.

 

It changed my life.

 

I binge read all those books over the course of a summer where my mom despaired of getting me out of my bedroom. I was still reading science fiction and fantasy, adventure novels like The Count of Monte Cristo, and Agatha Christie books like they might run out of copies at the library. But those romance novels…I read five or six a day until school started. And when I finished that bag, there was another. And another.

 

Add in a seminal viewing of Romancing the Stone and the electric typewriter my mom managed to scrounge up and situate in the basement (so the clattering of the keys wouldn’t keep everyone awake) on a tiny rolling metal table and there’s really no escaping the fact that I’ve wanted to be a romance author for most of my life. As a career, it gives me the perfect excuse for my never-ending need to learn, about museum art restoration or theater stage management, about organic family farms or librarians’ reader advisory ethics. I also get to remind myself again and again of the most important lesson I learned all those summers ago, hiding in my closet with a flashlight after midnight so I wouldn’t get in trouble for staying up until my eyes burned…

 

People can make terrible mistakes with the ones they love, the last ones they ever thought they would hurt, and there can be a way back. Or through.

 

Because we are flawed and so often damaged already.

 

Because love is the heart of being human.

 

Love makes you vulnerable and strong in equal amounts and imparts a stretchiness to the soul that lets us bend when we’re afraid we might break.

 

I can’t think of any stories I’d rather tell.

Amy Jo Cousins writes contemporary romance and erotica about smart people finding their own best kind of smexy. She lives in Chicago with her son, where she tweets too much, sometimes runs really far, and waits for the Cubs to win the World Series again.

Filthy Dirty Love #1
Stacey Kennedy
Releasing Jan 31st, 2017
 

 

Handcuffs aren’t just part of their job in this sizzling new standalone novel by USA Today bestselling author, Stacey Kennedy.
 
Veteran cop, Maddox Hunt, is all about the job. Sure, there are women—lots of women, truth be told—but there’s no one special. Until a one-night stand from his past, rookie Joss O’Neil is assigned to his division. Suddenly, all he can think about is her. The scent of her. The taste of her. 
 
Fresh out of field training, Joss has thrown herself into her job, determined to kick-start her career. And while police work has its thrills, her gorgeous new boss is what really gets her pulse pounding. Too bad he’s nothing but a distraction. Especially since he’s as devastatingly handsome as she remembers, and his sexy smile arrests her heart.
 
Now that Joss is back in Maddox’s life, he has a plan: satisfy her fantasies and fulfill his every dark desire. Nothing is off limits. Her pleasure is the endgame . . . but even the best-laid plans have a way of falling apart. Despite his best attempts to keep his distance and have things remain only about the pleasure, Maddox soon finds himself breaking the only law he’s set for himself. Don’t fall in love.
 

 
 
 
 

Heartbreaker (Filthy Dirty Love)Heartbreaker by Stacey Kennedy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Maddox & Joss have an incredible encounter. Then they end up working together. Neither one wanting forever out of it. What could happen if they give in and try for more?

Joss has a lot to lose if she gets caught with the local playboy. Her job could be on the line, as well as her reputation. They must decide if they are willing to risk this much to be together.

Seriously hot romance book! I was wondering for a bit there if my reader was going to catch fire. Very well written, with a pace that is quick and pleasant. I loved the characters together and was rooting for them. I cannot wait to see what will come next in the Filthy Dirty Love series.

Cocktail specialist Libby Harris has spent her life earning the nickname Little Miss Perfect, all to win the love of her wealthy, controlling father.

Pretend It's Love (Behind the Bar)Pretend It’s Love by Stefanie London
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the 2nd book in the Behind The Bar series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this great series in the order intended.

Paul & Libby meet in such a fun way in front of the bar where he works. He is the hero of the story right from the get go. Then they decide to enter into a fake relationship to fool his family for the upcoming wedding of Paul’s brother.

Libby, on the other hand, needs his brother’s approval. Paul is the answer to several prayers. Assuming they can pull this off. With the sparks flying between them it is only a matter of time. Pretend can only last so long.

Really fun and exciting read! I enjoyed all the joking and sexy times. This story kept me on my toes and this series is just getting better and better. I can hope we will get to see what’s next.

Blurb:

 

Three assassins and a… baby?
How many assassins does it take to change a diaper?
Three assassins have met their match…and it wears diapers.

 

 

Triggerman, Inc., Book 1

 

Noel “Ice” Cavanaugh’s method is foolproof. Get in, do the job, get out, melt away without a trace. Chill out until his next mark is assigned. Neat. Tidy. No mistakes.

This time, though, something isn’t right. Two somethings. First a random attack that feels not-so-random. Then he discovers someone’s left a baby on his doorstep with a note claiming it’s his. And the sexy neighbor who found the boy first has too many questions in her eyes to ignore.

When her handsome, mysterious neighbor suddenly asks her out on a date, Adeline Rose has suspicions he’s fishing for “help” with his bundle of…joy? By date’s end, she’s convinced NOel’s just as distant as he seems—until a scorching goodnight kiss ends with sex against the nearest wall, the heat between them burning away all thoughts of careful.

Now Noel has more than one problem on his hands. Splitting baby duty between three badass assassins, figuring out how to fit more time with Addy into his no-room-for-error schedule…and keeping both of them safe from the danger he’s increasingly sure has followed him home.

 

Warning: Beware a killer with a heart of gold, a baby who needs constant changing, and unrequited love that’s actually quite…requited.

 

Available From:

 

 
 
 
 

Wednesday evening, right before Noel’s big date, Hammer returned. Of course. Worst possible timing, but what the hell? Noel had been having one of those days. The baby had just puked over his carefully chosen outfit, much to Deacon’s amusement.

 

The bastard still hadn’t stopped laughing.

 

Wilkes had disappeared before the clean-up crew had arrived, and no one knew how he’d gotten away, which was still preying on his mind. Addy had stayed late after school due to some plumbing issues in her classroom and was working with her principal and the maintenance crew to fix it, so their date had been pushed back another hour. And earlier in the afternoon, Solene had taken her lunch break at his house, despite not receiving an invite, and bitched him out thoroughly.

 

I swear by all that’s holy. You hurt Addy in any way, break her heart or her pinkie toe, even by accident, and I’ll make your life a living hell,” she said, the words cold and concise. A threat by any measure, and one he knew to take to heart.

 

If Solene hadn’t meant the world to Addy, he could have ignored the woman. But she was Addy’s best friend, and she only had Addy’s interests at heart. How could he not respect her for that?

 

I treasure her. I’d never do anything to hurt her.” He looked her in the eye. “And I’d never allow anyone else to hurt her, either.”

 

She swallowed but didn’t step back. A sure sign of courage, since she knew he could take her out between one breath and the next.

 

Good.” She nodded. “One more thing. Just because she and I are best friends doesn’t mean we share everything. I am not on the menu.”

 

That had surprised him, that she’d needed to tell him what he already knew. “I take it others have made the assumption?”

 

She grimaced. “Yeah. It was so skeevy, but I couldn’t tell Addy because I didn’t want to hurt her feelings. She hadn’t been into the guy anyway, so it hadn’t mattered. But she can be a little self-conscious about her looks sometimes.”

 

Addy?” He snorted. “You have to be kidding me. She’s gorgeous.”

 

Solene smiled. “Yes, she is. Okay, enough said. Now what do you have I can eat? Oh, and I’m a huge fan of carbs.”

 

Noel had dealt with obstacles like that all day long, when he should have been focused on Addy. And here, another big one to overcome.

 

What a trip.” Hammer yawned. “I want nothing but a bed for the next twelve hours. I found out a few things, but I now have more questions than I did before I left.”

 

Yeah? Like what?” Deacon propped himself against Noel’s dresser, the little guy in his arms and starting to fuss.

 

They stood in his bedroom watching him hunt for a new outfit, one not covered in baby vomit. “Can it keep?” Noel growled, needing to concentrate on his evening with Addy, not more bad news. He couldn’t screw up with her again. He’d only get so many chances to convince the woman he wasn’t a bad bet.

 

Deacon patted the baby on the back. “Come on, Hammer. Noel’s getting ready to put it to his lady. We don’t want to be here when that happens.”

 

Hammer perked up. “Addy, right? His lady now? I go away for a few days and miss so much.”

 

I’ll fill you in. And I’ll get a pizza and beer if you keep that blonde barracuda off me while we babysit Noel Jr. We’re staying overnight, right, Noel?”

 

Hopefully.”

 

Hammer grinned. “Cool. I’ve been thinking.” The pair walked away with the baby while Noel continued his search. “How about we call him Monty? He’s a cute kid, and I’m a great guy. We should name him after someone grand.”

 

You claiming him as yours?” Deacon asked, his voice growing fainter.

 

The door opened. “Not exactly, but—”

 

Noel didn’t hear any more because they’d closed the door behind them. Much as he wanted to know what the hell Hammer had learned, it could wait. He had to calm his nerves, both excited and nervous about being with Addy again.

 

He had to get tonight perfectly right. He wanted her to feel so much pleasure, so much care, that she’d never want to leave him. Ever. Although he’d told her he wanted her after they cleaned up this mess, he didn’t know if she’d change her mind. He was a killer. He had no one to recommend him, nothing but a great house and the promise of millions behind him. But Addy didn’t know about his money, and she wasn’t the type to like a man for his wealth. She needed a guy with heart—and his had been encased in ice for more than a decade.

 

He ran a hand over his denim button-down shirt and jeans. He hadn’t worn shoes, because he didn’t like them in the home messing his floors. Deacon and Hammer would have to break that habit, and soon, before he broke them.

 

After slapping on a bit of cologne and making sure everything remained neat and tidy, he double-checked his stash of lube and condoms in the drawer and smiled.

 

He’d show her a night she’d never forget.

Aileen AKA Tinker Bell or Birdie as the boys like to call her, goes to Japan to interpret for someone making a movie. Turns out it is four guys around her age. They welcome her into the fold and treat her like family.

Theo and Matt are only half the band, but they are the half that are falling for their interpreter. There is so much going on in such a short time. Japan is very lovely and offers lots to see, but the schedule is quite hectic.

This story has so many wonderful adventures! I was really impressed with the character development. The guys are fun to read about. I cannot wait to read the next installment in the UK Crush series.

They believe love conquers all.
 
One of pro-hockey’s golden couples, Andrew and Caryn Chadwick live in the limelight reserved for elite professional athletes. On their second anniversary, Andrew receives an unexpected contract offer to join the Tampa Suns. As they look forward to a new adventure, neither foresees an event that challenges their love and threatens their marriage.
 
Until it doesn’t. 
 
A sudden and senseless accident threatens Andrew’s life and inexplicably drives a wedge between the couple. Shattered by the incident, paralyzed by fear that it could happen again, Caryn finds herself at odds with her husband and unable to provide the support he needs—at the time he is most vulnerable.
 
As their perfect world crumbles, each makes choices that take Andrew and Caryn further apart. 
 
Distrust, fears, and secrets construct walls. This Piece of My Soul follows the joint and separate paths the couple navigate as each hopes to rediscover the love that can conquer all.

Andrew gathered Caryn close to his side when they stepped inside the elevator and pressed the button to his floor. Caryn squeezed his hand during the brief ride. Once inside his room, he sank gratefully onto a chair and absently rubbed the back of his head.

 

Can I get you anything? Are you allowed an evening beer?” Caryn offered.

 

Did Tom bring any wine over?” 

 

I think so.”

 

Good, why don’t you get a bottle and a glass? We can share and stay within doctor’s orders.”

 

He watched as Caryn retrieved a bottle from the small refrigerator and opened the drawer looking for a corkscrew. She looked over her shoulder to flash a smile. “Sorry, no wine glasses.”

 

No problem.” He couldn’t take his eyes off her. Even in shorts and a slightly sweaty Suns T-shirt, she sparked a familiar fire in his body. His hands itched to free the golden hair from its low ponytail and run his fingers though it. Her familiar citrus scent stirred intense memories of showers they’d shared and he longed to skim his lips across her skin. She leaned to brush her lips against his before she perched on the arm of his chair. Her sparkling amber eyes issued an invitation that matched his thoughts as she handed him the bottle and corkscrew.

 

Don’t want to risk it?” he teased.

 

Only have the one bottle. You’re the expert.”

 

He opened the bottle and poured a small amount of wine into the glass she held. Putting his arm around her, his eyes held hers captive. “To our love.”

 

Our love,” Caryn whispered, her voice suddenly choked. She sipped the wine, her eyes never leaving Andrew’s, then handed the glass to him. He set it, the wine bottle and corkscrew on the table, and then he closed his arms around her, drawing her onto his lap as his lips sought hers.

 

Cary, I love you so much.” The rising tide of emotion swept them into a sea where wave after wave of love and desire crashed over them. After an eternity, Andrew pulled back slightly, smiling softly when he saw Caryn’s flushed cheeks. She reached to tenderly stroke the hair on the side of his head.

 

I love you, Drew. More than you’ll ever know.” Her voice was a hoarse whisper. She shook her head as her eyes filled with tears. “I was so afraid I’d lose you.”

 

He caught her hand and pressed her palm against his lips. “Never.” As his fingers played with the edge of her T-shirt, Caryn’s hands gripped his shoulders tightly. He captured her gasp of pleasure with his mouth, and closed his mind to everything except the onrushing waves of desire that continued to crash around them. She murmured a protest when he pulled back slightly, but Andrew didn’t speak. He caught her eyes, almost dark brown with desire and nodded his head toward the bedroom. Caryn smiled in understanding as she stepped from his lap and held out her hand.

 

 
 
 

This Piece of My Soul, Tampa Suns Hockey (Clearing the Ice, #2)This Piece of My Soul, Tampa Suns Hockey by Robyn M. Ryan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the 2nd book in the Clearing The Ice series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. Since it is a series that continues, it is advised to read this series in order.

Andrew and Caryn’s story continues in this new installment. Everything hits the fan when Andrew is hurt and it throws their life into chaos. They find out who their real friends and family are that come to help.

Caryn knows she does not want to live without Andrew. He is just such a big part of her life. When tragedy strikes, she learns who to trust and who to ignore.

This book was full of emotions for me. I felt the roller coaster ride that she was on. I sure hope to read the next installment as this series is just amazing.

Kitty’s Book Spot! Interview w/Author, Robyn M. Ryan:

 

 

  1. 1. Do you listen to music while you write?

 

I don’t listen while I’m writing, but I do listen to music when I’m developing a storyline in my mind.

 

2. Do you ever make playlists (music) for your books?

 

Yes. While in Paris, we discovered a French-Canadien singer, Garou. His music is not available on iTunes in the US, so I bought every CD from either France or Canada. We also saw him in concert during the Montreal International Jazz Festival. He’s a mega-star everywhere but the US—Some songs are in French and others English. His music comprises the playlist for the Clearing the Ice Series—This Piece of My Heart and This Piece of My Soul. (He’s also quite sexy—just an added bonus!)

 

This playlist includes both French and English songs (most can be found on YouTube): 

 

Seul

Sous le Vent (with Celine Dion)

Belle

Burning

Back For More

Take a Piece of My Soul

Beautiful Regret

Nothing Else Matters

L’adieu

Coming Home

Je voudrais voir New-York

3. What was your favorite book as a child/adolescent?

 

I devoured the Little House on the Prairie series when I was 8-9. I could not wait to go to the library each week to get the next book in the series.

 

4. What is your favorite sport?

 

Hockey! Atlanta has had two NHL franchises move away, so my favorite team now is the New York Rangers. (Figured they are not going anywhere!) If I win the lottery, I’ll buy a team and ensure it stays in Atlanta!

 

5. What is it you hope your readers will take away from your book?

A few hours of enjoyment and escape from the day-to-day…And of course, eagerly anticipate the next book in the series!

 

6. We love getting to know you! Will you share something with us you have not told anyone yet?

 

Sex scenes are the most difficult to write. Twelve years’ Catholic education may play a role in this. To this day, I don’t wear patent leather shoes. Thus, my books leave” specifics” to the reader’s imagination.

 

 
By the time she was an eight-year-old tomboy growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, Robyn M. Ryan definitely knew what she wanted to do when she grew up—play major league baseball or write. She wrote throughout elementary and high school, first composing novels featuring favorite TV and music personalities, and then venturing into sports writing.
 
Attending UGA’s journalism school launched her career in public relations, which included an internship with the Atlanta Flames NHL hockey team. With the encouragement of a writers group on twitter—WritersThatChat—This Piece of My Heart, a hockey romance, and the first book in Robyn’s series Clearing the Ice was published May 2016. The second book in the series, This Piece of My Soul, introduces the Tampa Suns professional hockey team.
 
Besides writing, Robyn’s passions include following the New York Rangers, NASCAR, and the Atlanta Braves; splitting time between homes in Atlanta and Palm Coast, and visiting Paris as often as possible. Two brilliant Westies rule both homes.
 
As do many writers, Robyn chooses to write using a pseudonym—hers is a combination of her sons’ names, a contribution from her youngest nephew.

Release Day Blitz – Titan World

availablenow

 

Today is the day – the Titan World books are now available on everywhere! Don’t miss these incredible novels all set in Cristin Harber’s Titan World.

 

Did you miss what Titan World is all about? Here’s a recap from Cristin herself:

 

I am excited to announce the Titan World stories! From military romance and romantic suspense to contemporary romance and paranormal, a few of my favorite authors have jumped head first into our heart-pounding world and penned their stories with Titan twists. You will see familiar characters from popular, bestselling series as they collide in fantastic collaborations! Plus I’m excited to introduce two debut authors who you may already know if you are familiar with all things Team Titan.

Please join me in welcoming the Titan World authors: Claudia Connor, Gennita Low, Jessie Lane, M.L. Buchman, Megan Mitcham, Sharon Kay, Karyn Lawrence, Amber Addison, Anna Bishop Barker, and Tarina Deaton.

 

 

Quick Q&A with Author, Cristin Harber:

 

Am I writing a story too?

 

You betcha! Déjà vu will be Doc Tuska’s story. He’s not a Titan team member, but he is a familiar and constant face in the series—perfect for Titan World!

 

Which Titan characters will be in the other author’s stories?

 

The authors had free rein. Some took on Titan like missions while others wrote backstories to characters and expanded on their families. They took scenes from current Titan books and expanded in a new direction.

 

What is the reading order of the Titan World?

 

There is NO READING order (Even if one of the retailers has randomly assigned a series number. Ahem, I’m looking at you, Amazon.).

About DEJA VU by Cristin Harber:

 

“Amnesia Allie” should’ve been one of Dr. James Tuska’s normal patients: another CIA asset who they wanted well-cared for and then sent on her merry way. Everyday work at his niche medical practice was never that interesting… until she claimed the impossible. “He’s my fiancé.” James had never met Allie, yet he couldn’t say no even if he was part of the Agency cover up. Now the Agency wants her dead.

 

Between the lies and the hiding, the woman who turned the CIA upside down with three words brought him to his knees.

 

And then Allie disappeared… Nothing would ever be the same.

 

 

 

Deja Vu (Titan World)Deja Vu by Cristin Harber
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a book from the new Titan World series. This is where series that are alike come together with those of the Titan series, created by Cristin Harber. If you are already familiar with the Titan series, this is going to be a joy for you. If you are as of yet unfamiliar – I am curious, where have you been?

James has had a lot of business with the CIA. This one is new to him since he cannot prevent himself from being attracted to Allie. His job is not to get to know her, but to help her stay hidden.

Allie just wants her memory back. She did not know she would have the hots for the doctor that seems to understand her. If only the sparks would stop flying….

This series is incredible! All the Titan related novels are full of heat, intrigue, sexy times, and of course, suspense. I really loved that this book started with a fast paced story and ended with a bang. True to form and really drool worthy. I am very excited to read the rest of the Titan World!

Target of Mine: The Night Stalkers 5E (Titan World) (The Night Stalkers #16)Target of Mine: The Night Stalkers 5E (Titan World) by M.L. Buchman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a book from the new Titan World series. This is where series that are alike come together with those of the Titan series, created by Cristin Harber. If you are already familiar with the Titan series, this is going to be a joy for you. If you are as of yet unfamiliar – I am curious, where have you been?

Nikita had met Drake before, when they worked on a mission. After turning him down once, he never tried anything again. She is unsure whether there will be anything in the future for them beyond the flirting they need to do to keep up their cover.

Drake wants Nikita in a way he has never wanted another woman. She is already a very accomplished operator. Now, if they can just stay alive and get past their own selves to take a chance….

This was such an incredible rush of a book to read! Fitting into the Titan World, by not only them and action – there are surprises for the reader with visits from favorite characters. It was heart pounding fun that I felt from page one. I loved watching the characters nearly tumble over themselves for one another!

About BULLETS AND BLUEBONNETS by Jessie Lane:

 

From New York Times best-selling author Cristin Harber and best-selling author Jessie Lane comes an exciting collaboration…

 

What happens when Titan and Ex Ops work together?

 

Terror has gripped the NYPD. A rogue snipper took out, not only the NYPD’s SWAT snippers and police chief, but several others. Now they must turn to the only person they can trust: Jared Weston and the Titan Group.

 

There’s only one problem. The Titan Operatives are currently tied up with their own missions. Unwilling to leave the NYPD hanging, Jared Weston cashes in a favor from Commander Jaxon Wall. Only, Jared doesn’t want to send Jaxon’s Ex Ops Team for the job; he wants to send in someone Jaxon has kept secret: his goddaughter, Billie Jean Beasely, one of the best snipers working for the FBI’s Hostage Rescue Team, if only her male counterparts would let her prove it. The NYC mission could finally give her that chance.

 

Thing is, Jaxon Wall isn’t willing to send his goddaughter in alone. He wants to send one of his own men to help her. Chase Anderson.

Will Chase turn out to be yet another man who thinks Billie is less of a shot just because she’s a woman? Or will Billie finally meet a man who realizes she loves her bullets as much as bluebonnets?

About TWISTED DESIRE by Sharon Kay:

 

From New York Times best-selling author Cristin Harber and award winning author Sharon Kay comes an exciting collaboration…

 

Rhys MacLeod is a warrior first and a hacker second. Preserving the balance of power among supernatural beings is his prime directive, as well as keeping it far from human eyes. The discovery of a man killed by magical force on a Chicago street lands him on an op he didn’t expect. He’s good, but solving this crime requires a call to the best of the best.

 

Parker Black of Titan Group never met a network he couldn’t infiltrate. Along with Titan team member Locke Oliver and Megan, a scientist who witnessed the murder, they uncover a maze of encrypted files and unethical DNA manipulation.

 

Rhys is duty bound to keep all supernatural details hidden from his human friends, so identifying the killer becomes more complicated when clues indicate the perp isn’t human. And when the murderer shows up at their location, every second counts before its true nature is revealed.

About NEVER MINE by Megan Mitcham:

 

From New York Times best-selling author Cristin Harber and USA Today best-selling author Megan Mitcham comes an exciting collaboration…

 

Jillian Cooper never wanted Callum, until a dream morphs him from her best friend’s husband to a singular nocturnal fantasy. Revolted by her own mind and loyal to a fault, she refuses to give the dream life. Still, it manages to make her awkward around her only family; Amery, Callum, and their two stunning daughters. As an orphan and an Explosive Ordinance Tech with the Navy, things have a way of crashing down around her. The world crumbling call came in the form of a single car, single fatality accident. Amery died.

 

While she spins in dizzying circles, the girls she’s loved since they were in their momma’s belly cling to her. When Callum’s strong arms fortify them and keep them all from falling apart, Jillian’s inner struggle reaches a breaking point. She does the only thing she can to honor her friend’s memory…run to the other side of the world to contract for Titan Group, an elite private securities force in need of an EOD.

 

Callum Bradfield adapts and overcomes. Even after the tragic death of his wife, his core values as a Navy SEAL march him forward…to safer waters. His gig as mission transport for Base Branch—the special operations force for the UN—isn’t as adrenaline laden, but he refuses to make his girls orphans.

 

Things are beginning to regroup when Jillian bales on his girls—and him—without a word. To ensure she’s safe, he hacks her personal information and follows the crumbs into Titan’s database. Crossing that line gets them both under a microscope in the middle of a desert, searching for the proof they need to show their innocence, while he tries to convince Jillian he’s more than just her dream.

“Please, Jordan. It’s Emme.”

 

The last thing Major Jordan Grant expected was to be pulled off his unit’s deployment for a civilian mission. But when Titan calls, you answer — especially when the mission is to rescue the younger sister of your childhood best friend.

 

Moments away from death, NGO nurse Emme France could only pray for a miracle. The last person she expected to see in the smoke and dust was Jordan Grant, her teenage crush and litmus test of all the men she’d dated ever since.

 

Lying low at Titan’s exotic Abu Dhabi headquarters while the media furor around her rescue settles, Emme and Jordan explore a mutual attraction that is no longer young and innocent. Days in the desert paradise ignite desire and blur reality…until they return home, where Jordan rejoins his deployed unit and Emme is left alone to reevaluate her life and priorities.

 

Their passion was forged in the fires of combat. Will the home fires be enough to keep the burn alive?
