I vow. I crave. I give in.
I used to be a nice, normal girl. I had dreams. Good, happy dreams of a white picket fence, 2.5 kids, and a fairytale love that lasts forever. Nobody ever warned me that sometimes, the prince dies three weeks before the wedding.
Like any addict, I swear this time is the last….
Now, I go through my days, a shadow of my former self. I pretend I’m okay, and the people in my life pretend to believe me. But, sometimes, when I can no longer stand the craving, I roam an underground sex club looking for my next hit.
It’s dirty and wrong, but I can’t stop, and my only line of defense between them and me, are the rules I’ve designed to keep me safe. Men always abide by my rules. Until I meet him.
And, like any addict, I’m wrong.
I don’t question the instincts that tell me to run. One look at him, standing there, power radiating off him in waves, tells me all I need to know. He will make me crave those happy dreams I’ve left behind. And that is not an option.

He also desperately needs my help.
There are three things I know for sure. First, Prince Andrew has a secret. Second, he'll do anything to keep it a secret. And third, in spite of how infuriating I find him, I can’t help being incredibly attracted to him.

It was an innocent mistake…
All workaholic real estate broker Addison Andrews wanted was one night of pleasure, and picking the right guy was no different than shopping from a catalog thanks to the dating app on her phone. His name was Wilder, and his profile was blank – just a sexy picture of a man who promised every wicked intention of a one-night stand.
The agreement was simple. One night. No last names. But the second their bodies melded together in the sheets of their posh Manhattan hotel room, there was no denying they fit together like two pieces of a broken puzzle.
There’s just one problem…
Addison unknowingly swiped right on the one man she wasn’t supposed to be with – her new stepbrother. All it takes is one bite of forbidden fruit to become addicted, but being with him has major consequences for their entire family. And if anyone found out about them, the career she worked so hard to build would crumble to the ground.
But Wilder Van Cleef doesn’t care about the possibility of a scandal. He wants her, and he’s willing to do whatever it takes.

MUST BE LOVE
My life was perfect—from the outside, at least. Until I came home to find another woman straddling my long-time boyfriend. On my brand new bedding.
Now I’m back in Jetty Beach, the small town on the coast where I grew up, crashing at my parent’s place. And life is looking pretty bleak.
We knew each other as kids, but he did not look like this. Tousled dark hair, a body that sparks thoughts that make me blush, and intense green eyes hiding a sadness I want to kiss away. He’s back in town too, and I can’t seem to get him out of my mind.
Or stay out of his bed.
He makes me feel things I never imagined (and the things he can do with his tongue!). But his sweet, sad eyes are hiding a secret—one that could tear us apart.
Ryan comes into my life at precisely the wrong time. It’s either a huge mistake … or it must be love.

That’s how long it’s been since my brother’s been gone and not a day goes by that it doesn’t kill me, knowing that I’ll never see Adric again. It’s been a rough journey, one I’ve barely survived, but with the help of my childhood friend Kade Haze, I’m finally learning to piece what remains back together.
Or so I thought…
Just when life is beginning to make sense again and a feeling of normalcy is on the horizon, my carefully constructed walls come crashing down, making it hard to breathe once again.
When walking into the tattoo shop one day, the last thing I’m expecting to see is Kellan Haze, Adric’s best friend who no one has seen or heard from since the day they found my brother’s body.
He’s nothing like I remember him as a child, with his wild messy hair, tattoos that cover most of his undeniably sexy body and eyes so intense they make my legs quiver with one look.
The one thing even I can’t deny is the instant rush I feel just by being in his presence.
But how can I choose between love and lust when one of these holds a dark secret, one that can crush my world to pieces and leave me gasping for air. Who can I trust when my mind is pulling me in two different directions and my heart has to choose for me?
The Haze brothers are sexy, daring and possibly . . . dangerous.
This Regret is a story of love, lust, betrayal and danger with an ending no one will see coming.
I hurt, break and kill for a living. The Family point, I deliver. But this time, they ask too much. This time, they want me to marry the one woman who knows my secret. She has reason to hate me, I know, but I'll take her, I'll break her, and I'll make her mine. That's the only way I can keep my secret.
When I ran away eight years ago, I thought I'd escaped the underworld I'd always known. I made a life for myself. I thought I was free. Then my past came knocking at my door. Now I'm marrying the son of London's biggest crime family. A man who hates me as much as I hate him. He's ruthless, brutal, and dangerous - everything I've always feared. He's taken away the life I built, he's taken my freedom. And now, I fear he's taken my sanity, too. How else could I have ended up pregnant with his baby?
I KNOW EXACTLY HOW I'LL PUNISH HER.
She was looking for a getaway ride to safety when I caught her trying to steal my bike.
But when I took one good look at her porcelain skin and luscious curves…
I live life on the edge—fast bikes, loose women, and more money than I count.
Tina was on the run and looking for a getaway ride to safety.
But she just had to try stealing my bike.
At first, I went after her to get back what’s mine.
But that was before I took a good look at her.
Those innocent yet defiant eyes.
Her perfect pale skin.
Her curvy body that I want pinned underneath me.
Nobody steals from me and get away with it.
I’m going to drag her back.
Tie her to the bed.
And teach her the consequences of stealing from me.
And once I’ve owned her curves.
Tamed her mouth.
I’m going to take everything else and make her MINE.
