Fatal Strike

July 8, 2013

The McCloud brothers have been coaching their protégé, Miles Davenport, for years. It’s finally time for him to claim his own place in their group—and his own love.

Her eyes haunt him….

All that Miles knows about the beautiful young sculptor Lara Kirk is that she was abducted by a madman, in order to punish her parents for their sins. She’s an orphan now, and everyone else on earth who might have fought to find her is dead, so it’s up to him to help her now. Miles is all out of leads, but he is tormented by dreams of Lara…dreams that are starting to feel shockingly real. So real, he decides to try following them…

She can’t separate dreams from reality…

Lara Kirk’s been locked in a cell for months. The only thing that has kept her clinging to sanity by a thread is the stunning, avenging savior in her dreams…the one who can’t possibly be anything but a fantasy. So she tells herself, until the brawny young warrior bursts into her prison and sweeps her away, against all odds.

Lara can’t help but bond with the intense, protective Miles. But their wild passion is a dangerous distraction, and the stakes keep getting higher as Lara and Miles battle with an unimaginable evil that threatens everything they care about…

June 3, 2013

Now that the McClouds have finally found their long lost brother Kev, they have to contend with Kev’s prickly, intense adopted brother Bruno…

Her secrets tantalize him…

Bruno Ranieri has a lot in common with his adopted brother Kev McCloud’s newly discovered biological family, right down to the dangerous secrets in his past—the ones that are about to explode in his face.

Bruno’s working around the clock to keep his own toy business going, while also saving the family diner. Then the stunning fugitive Lily Parr shows up in the middle of the night, on the run from mysterious killers. Bruno is helplessly drawn to her…but Lily insists that Bruno’s long dead mother is somehow mixed up her troubles, which is flat-out impossible. The woman has to be hallucinating…but the violence that overtakes them is undeniably real.

Running scared…

Lily doesn’t know where to turn. All she knows is that whoever murdered her dad is now after her—and her dad’s last words pointed her toward Bruno Ranieri’s family for answers. When thugs attack outside of Bruno’s family diner, he fights like a demon to defend her. No matter his doubts, he can’t leave her unprotected, and soon they are both drawn into a desperate struggle against violence and greed, and a desire they cannot deny, or control…

One Wrong Move

June 3, 2013

Alex Aaro should have known better than to get embroiled in the McCloud crowd’s wild adventures. He knew damn well it was a surefire way to get his life blown all to hell.

Never let down your guard…

Alex Aaro keeps the world at arm’s length. It’s the only way to protect himself from the Arbatovs, his dangerous Mafiya family. He ran away when he was sixteen, but when he learns that his Aunt Tonya, the only family member he ever trusted, is dying, he has to see her one last time. Things are tough enough without his friend Bruno Ranieri calling, demanding that he help some woman friend of Bruno’s wife who’s gotten her sorry ass into trouble. Being in Brooklyn already, he happens to be closest, lucky him. Aaro didn’t expect her to be so damn pretty. But he’s not surprised by the violence that engulfs them as soon as he finds her. That’s just how life goes for him.

The sting of a needle…

Nina Christie is terrified when Helga, an old family friend shows up outside the battered woman’s shelter where she works, babbling in Ukrainian, and sticks Nina with a needle full of God knows what. Then Helga collapses, giving Nina no explanation. Suddenly a ruthless crime syndicate is trying to destroy her, and all that stands in their way is the grim, inscrutable Alex Aaro, that tall, rock-hard, flint-eyed, stunningly gorgeous slab of manhood who makes her heart race and her breath catch. There’s no time for any of that, with their enemies hard on their heels…but Aaro and Nina can’t resist the scorching desire that flares between them, even as they scramble to solve the puzzle and outmaneuver their pursuers before it’s too late…
