Pretty Ugly (Addicted Hearts 2)
We were meant to live happily ever after,
a promise I sealed with a band of gold.
Our road was rocky and rough, yet worth every mark etched on my heart.
Kat is my addiction.
I'm her salvation.
Two hearts joined in pain.
Yet beneath the surface of our intended bliss, a tsunami was brewing.
An unstoppable force driven by deceit.
Now I'm back in New York -- the city that stole my soul -- caught between the future that awaits and a past that won't let go.
I promised us a happy ending
But the ugliest lies are the ones we tell ourselves.
Pretty Reckless (Addicted Hearts 1)
Two years ago, I watched my girlfriend die.
We chased the high, night and day, searching for that magical fix that would cure the pain. But in the end, the escape she lived for took her from me.
Now, sober and rebuilding the life I almost destroyed, the last thing I need is another beautiful project dragging me down. Especially a Greek goddess with a sharp tongue and a drinking problem. But hidden inside Katarina's charcoal gaze is a broken soul crying out for help. Like a true addict, I can't say no.
Maybe if I can save her, it will make up for my past.
But her salvation could also be my ruin.
I’m not the woman he claims he loves.
Hope Moon is a figment, a fairy tale. A single mom with sunny smiles on the outside, but whose pitch-black insides are riddled with demons.
I can’t look him in the face, can’t tell him who I am.
If I let my guard down, Jack will find me.
Jack’s wrath left me bound in hell.
Can Hank’s love set me free?
I’ve been hurt.
I’ve been used.
I’ve been betrayed.
But Hank Lawless isn’t a man to be trifled with.
Hope Moon has caught me like a fly in a web. Her gaze is haunted, her moves calculated. There’s more to the dark haired beauty than meets the eye. She’s hiding something.
I need to find a way to break down her defenses.
I vowed to walk beside her through her own personal hell.
But is my love enough to free her from it?
I don’t date musicians -- I don’t date period -- yet I find myself drawn to the dark and broody drummer that snuck his way into my heart. Beneath the arrogant grin and cocky one-liners, AJ Morello is a lonely man, burdened by the choices he’s made. But he’s not the only one with regrets.
Mine goes by the name of Austin Krehley.
The ranch hand on my family's farm, the man that will always own a part of me. After seven years spent chasing my dreams, I find myself back in Texas, back with him. Yet, I can't stop longing for AJ, the man I promised I'd return to.
Two completely different men both hold pieces of my heart, but I can’t have them both.
A sexy country boy and a sultry rocker -- how’s a girl to choose?
Ainsley Daniels. She is a typhoon. A tidal wave. A goddamned wrecking ball. She burst into my world unannounced and left nothing but destruction in her wake. The worst part about it: I can’t get her out of my head.
In a bizarre twist of fate, the drummer of my band is marrying Ainsley’s best friend. In a few months, I’ll be face to face with the woman who took my heart and ran. It’s been over a year since I first laid eyes on her, and I’m finally getting the second chance I was hoping for. This time, I’ll do anything to make Ainsley Daniels mine.
Kade Black isn’t just the lead singer of the most notorious rock band in the world, he’s my dark horse. Our one night plan became three weeks of debauchery, and I never intended to see him again when it was over.
He offered me the world, but I'm too much of a realist. Instead, I pushed him away and spent the last year building a life for myself. Now Jenny’s wedding is blowing into town like a hurricane, stirring up feelings I’ve worked so hard to ignore. Between my daughter, my job, and a bitter ex-husband who's determined to destroy me, the last thing I need in my new life is Kade coming back to shake things up. I’ve moved on.
If only Kade Black weren’t so damned irresistible.
Secrets & Promises
There are three things in this world that I love: vintage cars, classic metal tunes, and my older brother, AJ. For as long as I can remember, it’s been AJ and me against the world. Now, in the wake of our father’s passing, everything has changed. Chained to the family business, my young life is all work and no play…until he walked in.
“Stay away from my sister.”
I was warned from day one. It should have been a simple enough task, but seeing her at work day in and day out proved to be harder than I thought. I drove into Morello and Son’s Restoration after five years away hoping for an oil change and a trip down memory lane. I wasn't looking for a job, and I never expected to fall for her.
