Conspiracies and lies lead to a secret that was never supposed to be uncovered.
Six months ago we rescued Emilie Swanson, the daughter of retired Navy Admiral George Swanson – now a senator running for the presidency.
Having just returned from a harrowing operation gone wrong, I accept an undercover mission. With orders to protect Emilie from any further threats,
everything should be uncomplicated. Expecting a socialite, I’m surprised when I get to know the spirited woman.
But the Navy SEAL motto is true. The only easy day was yesterday.
To save her I have to take on a powerful political player who will do anything to further his career. Things aren’t what they seem, and the threat to Emilie’s life lies much closer to home than we thought.
Time is running out as we’re both caught in a web of false perceptions.
Please note that False Perceptions contains graphically violent scenes that may be upsetting to some readers.
STEPBROTHER WITH BENEFITS
ALSO IN KU
"Friends with benefits, stepbrother with benefits, what's the difference?"
"Um, we're not even friends, Ethan?"
Rule #1 – It's only supposed to last for a week...
Ethan is a cocky, arrogant jerk. He's always been that way. I'll never understand why girls trip over themselves just to be with him. Don't they realize he's going to ditch them in a week?
Yes, he can be nice when he feels like it. It's true that he's ridiculously attractive, too. It's not like I want to stare at him when he walks around shirtless, but it's hard not to notice someone with a body made of rock-hard sculpted muscle and sin. He's got that panty-melting bad boy smile that makes you want to...
Did I mention he's my stepbrother? Ick.
What? You think I'm falling for him? Nope! It's impossible.
There's only one problem... I might have accidentally, um... it was just one night, alright? One really good night. Panties? Yup, they're melted.
It was a mistake, it doesn't mean anything.
Sorry, there's two problems. Did I mention our parents are away and we're stuck home alone together for a week?
I'm the responsible one. The good girl with perfect grades. And I'm trapped for a week with a bad boy who showed me what it's like to give in to my wild side.
What's the worst that can happen?

He swears that by the end of the season, he's going to have me begging for more.

My new boss likes rules, but there's one nobody dares to break...
No touching his banana.
Seriously. The guy is like a potassium addict.
Of course, I touched it.
If you want to get technical, I actually put it in my mouth.
I chewed it up, too... I even swallowed.
I know. Bad, bad, girl.
Then I saw him, and believe it or not, choking on a guy's banana does not make the best first impression.
I should backtrack a little here. Before I ever touched a billionaire’s banana, I got my first real assignment as a business reporter. This wasn’t the same old bottom-of-the-barrel assignment I always got.
I wasn’t going to interview a garbage man about his favorite routes or write a piece on how picking up dog poop from people’s yards is the next big thing.
Nope. None of the above, thank you very much.
This was my big break. My chance to prove I wasn’t a bumbling, clumsy, accident-prone walking disaster. I was infiltrating Galleon Enterprises to follow up on suspicions of corruption.
Cue the James Bond music.
I could do this. All I had to do was land the position as an intern and nail my interview with Bruce Chamberson.
Forget the fact that he looked like somebody carved him out of liquid female desire, then sprinkled on some "makes men question their sexuality" for good measure. I needed to make this work. No accidents. No disasters. No clumsiness. All I needed to do was hold it together for less than an hour.
Fast forward to the conference room before the interview, and that's where you would find me with a banana in my hand. A banana that literally had his name on it in big, black sharpie. It was a few seconds later when he walked in and caught me yellow-handed. A few seconds after that was when he hired me.
Yeah. I know. It didn't seem like a good sign to me, either.
From authors Chelle Bliss and Brenda Rothert comes a smoldering enemies to lovers romance.
I hate him. Jude Titan is everything that’s wrong with the male sex: cocky, domineering and loaded with swagger. Oh, and did I mention he’s a Republican? Yeah, the guy’s so conservative he leans to the right when walking. And lucky me, I’m running against him for Senate. But I’ve got plenty of fight in me. A golden boy war hero opponent with a smile that leaves melted panties in its wake? Bring. It. On.
Damn, she’s sexy. Reagan Preston intrigues me from the moment I lay eyes on her. And speaking of laying…I want between those thighs. But I want to make her burn for me first. Every debate and stolen moment is foreplay for us. She claims she hates me, but her body tells a different story. I plan to win this election, but I also want to win the sharp, fiery Democrat who captures my attention like no woman ever has. Politics is filthy, just like all the things I want to do to Reagan Preston.

TOUGH AND DIRTY RUSSIAN
ALSO IN KU
He needs a wife. She needs a job. Just maybe they'll wind up needing each other...
She was all fire. Big green eyes, red hair, round rolling hips.
I’ve never seen a woman speak to my father like that. No one’s responded so fiercely to the proposition. We are just looking for someone to lend a bit of credibility to our family business, to explain the nuances of American life. People here don’t always trust Russians. Especially a family with history like ours. A nice American wife could help. At least my father thinks so.
But so many American girls, they’re…soft. They bend easily. They see the money, the way I look and they go crazy trying to appease me. But, I like a woman who holds her own. At least for a little while.
But this one might be trouble. A lot of trouble.
I want him. Against my better judgement.
Sleeping with him wouldn’t be giving in, it would be taking what I wanted.
There’s no way I’m going to marry him and play pretend so his business can expand.
But I can use him for my own needs, and then leave – satisfied and unemployed.
At least the whole day won’t be a total waste.
TOUGH & DIRTY RUSSIAN is a stand alone romance novella with no cheating, all the steam you want, suspense and a beautiful HEA that you'll love!

Fractured is the first instalment of a British contemporary romance series and is a full length novel.
AUTHOR’S NOTE: This novel is a new edition that has been re-edited and revised - 27 July 2018.
Blythe Heywood denied her destiny when she left Finn Lanigan behind thirteen years ago to return to her fiancé, a wedding, and the life of safety and security that she'd yearned for since she was a child. But in the wake of her husband's betrayal, Blythe is forced to begin again. And it's her memories of Finn, the only man who ever weakened her knees, that call her across the Pacific Northwest in search of the next chapter in her life.
Starting over in the foothills of Blue Mountain changes everything Blythe thought she knew as she learns that sometimes the road not taken is actually the path that is meant to be. The first book in the Blue Mountain Series joins Tess Thompson's lovable but complex characters with a mature love story about second chances, families, and learning to love after loss.
Kate McAdams was forced six years ago to leave her beloved hometown of Willow Valley, leaving behind her family and the only man she’s ever loved, Marc Caliendo. Although she has created a new life for herself away from the drama, secrets and stress of the small town, she must return upon her grandmother’s death. Her return brings back wonderful memories, especially of Marc, but also horrible fears from the past.
When fate throws her and Marc together once again, how can they ignore the everlasting love and desire between them? Will Kate stay and face her demons or will the deceit and secrets of the past destroy any future they may have and force her to leave again?
This book can be read as a stand alone, but for more enjoyment read them in the order of the series, as all the characters appear in future books.

When I accidentally wished for my own Prince Charming, I never expected him to actually show up. Not here in South America--not at the crappy charity clinic where I work.

So why can’t I seem to resist him?
There’s no way Prince Leo is actually interested in a normal girl like me. No way he’ll ever be able to overcome his womanizing ways to be the prince of my dreams.
And the more time I spend with him, it’s clear he has almost as many secrets as me.
I’m only sure of one thing—if I give him what he wants, he’s going to break my heart.

THE SECRET TO SEDUCTION
Felicia Liddle has eight days to seduce Hollywood bad boy Luca Fontaine.
If she wants to keep her dream job, she needs to score an interview with the infamous actor--or with one of his equally legendary (and ridiculously sexy) brothers, the notorious Fontaine boys of Hollywood. And everyone knows that the Fontaines never give interviews--but everyone also knows that neither Luca nor any of his brothers can resist a charming woman, and Felicia's sure that's her way in.
The only problem? Historically speaking, Felicia's way more likely to put her foot in her mouth (or generally make an idiot of herself) than charm the pants off of anyone.
Enter Roman Everet: media mogul (read: billionaire), insanely sexy, and--oh yeah--Felicia's new boss. He might hold the fate of her job in his hands, but he's more than willing to help her become an expert in seduction...
MEET THE FONTAINES: Hollywood royalty. LA's most notorious bad boys. Permanent stars of the tabloids. And the wickedest, most devilish lovers around...
