Intense. Devoted. Protective.
Michael Sloan is all of the above, with a hard tough edge to boot. He’s not the guy he used to be. Years ago, before all the s&%t went down, he was laidback, carefree, and even happy-go-lucky.
Life changed him. Hardened him.
There’s one woman though who can break down his walls. Someone who knew him then. Who can reach inside to that heart he protects fiercely…because she’s the only one he ever gave it to. When they collide, it’s tender and savage, gentle and rough, and makes them both hungry for more of this electric, once-in-a-blue moon kind of sexual chemistry. But it’s a battle of wills between Michael and the woman he loves, with words and emotions held close to the vest.
She doesn’t believe she can ever move on from her own heartache, but when Michael makes her feel for the first time in years, it’s both thrilling and scares the hell out of her, setting off all her flight instincts. He’s determined not to lose her again, but he’ll have to learn to let her in if he ever wants to fully heal from the past…
The problem is, she knows something about the night his family shattered. She has the missing puzzle piece…but neither one of them realizes it.
GET TO KNOW THE BODY SHOP BAD BOYS
Johnny, Foley, Sam, and Lou are the rough and tumble mechanics of Webster’s Garage. These reformed bad boys are used to living fast, but it’s the women in their lives who take them from zero to sixty in a heartbeat.
Johnny Devlin’s a charmer with a checkered past. He has had his eye on scorching-hot bartender Lara Valley for ages, but she’s rejected him more than once. That doesn’t mean he won’t come to her aid when some dirtbag mauls her. When she asks him on a date as a no-strings-attached thank you, he can’t say no. And then he’s saying nothing but hell, yes.
In Vegas, a lot can happen in twenty-four hours.
What do you get when you mix a rock band as hot as Reckless Beat, women strong enough to capture several of the bad boys’ hearts, and a bet that sparks a competitive streak?
Boundaries will be pushed, alcohol will be abused, and loads of sarcasm will be shared.
Once the games are over, it’s time to make a commitment. But love in the limelight is never easy. The past is trying to catch up with the present, and the pressure may be too hard to handle.
Seduction, torment, laughter, and heartbreak—one reckless weekend will test each member of the band and the women who’ve claimed their love.
Carly Toblan had a little too much wine at her best friend’s wedding. Now she’s found herself flirting with a hunky shifter who’s bent on showing her how much he wants her. She’s never been with a shifter but suddenly this curvy girl is hearing the call of the wild up close and personal.
Bear-shifter, Bastien Auberon, knows two things for sure. 1. Carly is his mate and 2. She doesn’t want to want him. Too bad because she does. And he’ll use that unquenchable desire to get her to be his. He’d never used sex to keep a woman before, but in love and war, anything goes.
With her father sending eligible men her way, and someone trying to take his mate from him, Bastien’s ready to roar in frustration. He has a lot to figure out before he can get Carly into a forever state of mind. Claiming a woman had never been this difficult. Good thing he’s so persistent and will let nothing stand in his way.
Reader Note: I hope you’re ready for more panty-dropping sexiness. There’s hot, sweaty, naughty sex, adult language, lots of violence and blood, a BBW heroine with an attitude and a roaring bear ready to claim his girl. If this is not the kind of stuff you like to read, skip this book. However, if you’re a fan of all things naughty and humor, this is perfect for you. Enjoy!
When it comes to The Underground, trouble is always brewing. How could it not? Whatever the particular desire, it’s guaranteed to be available at the club which caters to every being, race, and creature which exists in the New Realms…and lets them indulge in their every fantasy.
So maybe Nemesis had been looking for a little trouble. A little trouble – not the sound and fury striding in with long pale hair and attitude for days. And though Nemesis knew better, it didn’t stop her from getting involved in a situation she had no business in, not after those green eyes met hers.
But there is one truth that always needs to be remembered for those indulging in what The Underground offers – Fantasy only lasts so long, and real life eventually returns. How will Nemesis deal when her world and her time at The Underground crash together in ways she never imagined?
Nemesis Underground contains some non-spoiler references to The Dream Crafter, but it’s not necessary to have read that book to enjoy this short story in the Entwined Realms Universe.
