One dominant alpha male.
One innocent bewitching woman.
Equals one explosive attraction.

Mia Brunetti is far too busy with her studies to worry about having a man in her life. Growing up with three unruly and overprotective brothers has made her wary of men in general. That goes double if he's your brother’s best friend.

For years, Mia has worshipped Zane Mitchell and has avoided him and hidden her heart behind a wall. She has waited her entire life for Zane to see her as more than her brother's little sister. Now that she’s old enough to stake her claim on him, she’s pulling out all the sexual stops.

Zane has sworn off all women…until innocent Mia catches his attention. He is a devastatingly, masculine male who makes Mia's imagination go wild, but Zane has desires that would send innocent Mia running. The recently injured ex-cop is now working for the Brunetti family empire. As part of Mia's internship, Mia's brothers have placed her under Zane's wing. He is more than willing to take Mia up on her offer. The fun and games tie them both up in knots. Mia isn’t willing to settle for less than the whole package. But dominant Zane, even though the sexy country girl sets his blood ablaze, is determined to resist her efforts to protect his battered heart and her from his needs.

There’s me: Micah Owens. Tattoo artist at Damage Control. No parents or siblings. A past that still gives me nightmares. And then there’s her: Evangeline, the girl who saved my life and haunts my more pleasant dreams. Only she doesn’t know who I really am, and telling her might well send her fleeing for the hills. She deserves better than a loser like me. She’s pretty. She’s clever. She’s goddamn sexy and has a heart of gold. Which is why I can’t tell her. A smile from her and I’ll do all I can to make her mine – including pretending to be someone I’m not, someone worth having. Isn’t love weird? This is book 1 in the Damage Control series – a series parallel to Inked Brotherhood, so that you’ll find the boys of Inked Brotherhood making appearances here, too. MICAH is a stand-alone work. No cliffhanger. The expected publication date is Dec 16, 2014 in the Red Hot Alphas Boxset, on all of your favorite e-book websites.  




Quiet. I ring the bell again, and when nothing happens, I check the piece of paper. I’m at the right place. Maybe Rafe made a mistake? Or maybe Micah is not in. Just when I’m about to turn and go, I think I hear footsteps and push the paper into the pocket of my jacket. I lick my lips, my nervousness returning. The lock creaks and the door slides open. “Yeah?” a hoarse male voice says, and I catch a glimpse of a suspicious blue eye through the opening. “Micah? It’s me, Ev.” Oh God, this sounds so lame. I shift my weight again, my leg twinging. “I, um. I forgot my walking stick at the cafe...” I feel ridiculous addressing his eye and not even seeing his whole face. “I was hoping maybe you noticed and got it for me.” “Ev?” His voice cracks. He turns away and coughs, and the worry gently gnawing at my insides morphs into a voracious monster. “Are you all right?” My voice goes high-pitched, and I wince. Calm down, Ev. “That cold still hasn’t cleared up?” “What?” He pulls the door open and leans against it, bracing one arm on the frame. One bare, muscled arm. Attached to his muscular bare chest. “Oh, the cold, yeah. I’m fine.” Fine. “Why did you stay home if you’re fine?” He blinks at me, a slow sweep of long lashes against high cheekbones, and I have a moment of oh-crap-I’ve-gone-too-far panic. But he doesn’t slam the door in my face as I think he might. “Rough night,” he mutters. “Ocean said he’d cover for me at work, so I stayed home to sleep.” Straightforward. Honest. A rough night. I want to ask what made it rough, but I think I’ve already overstepped the boundaries of our... friendship? Acquaintance? I drop my gaze from his face, and that’s a mistake. My mind blanks a little as I realize he’s shirtless and barefoot, lounging in front of me in only a pair of gray low-hung, draw-string pants. My gaze slides back up his long legs to his narrow hipbones and a spectacular set of abs, complete with sexy divots forming a V line. My mouth is honest-to-god watering. I tear my gaze off those lickable abs only for it to be caught by his defined pecs and then his amused sky-blue eyes. “Is there anything I can do for ya?” he drawls lazily, and I swear my panties get wet at the raspy sound. Well, wetter. Which is kind of alarming. No guy has ever had such an effect on me before.

I'm so speechless that I don't know where to start with this review. Slay was the book that kept you at the edge of your seat and not to mention that it was a MC book with a Hott alpha male that has problems (swoons) what's not to love.I was so caught up in this that I didn't realize that I was through reading this until the end. I wanted to know what was going on at all times and at the end all I could say was Damn it was worth it.

Cover Reveal - Vis Major by T.A. Anderson

And now.....
The cover for Vis Major by T.A. Anderson!

Release Date: To be announced...


Death changes people.

It's a phrase Reeve was all too familiar with. His father uttered those words on a daily basis. Following his parents into the family business had meant being the glue for others who were falling apart after a death... and in this line of work, grief was inevitable.

When Reeve suffers real loss in the death of his best friend and soul mate, he’s left questioning if his entire life was a sham. Consumed by loss and doubt, he detaches himself from reality.

In an attempt to get his son back, his father abandons all he thought he knew about healing, and pleads with Reeve to take on a new case.

But, this wasn't just any case; it was Jessie Case, a woman more mysterious than the circumstances surrounding the death of his best friend.

When these two lives merge, they entice each other into a world of forgotten pain. What they discover is far more haunting than either of them could imagine. 


Her voice is thick with emotion as she pleads, "Show me."
Hesitant, I move toward her, holding her gaze in a way that seems to push her further back with each step I take. 
My jacket falls to the floor, and I welcome the sharp bite of cold air against my flesh. 
She gasps, a mixture of fear and awe garbling the sound. Her eyes dip to take in all I've exposed to her. “Reeve, what have you done?" she whispers.
"It doesn't hurt," I explain, running my fingers along my angry, red skin. 
Instinctively, she clasps her hands around her arms, as if to protect herself from me scaring her too.
Sweet Jessie. Don't you understand I would never hurt you?
I envision myself saying this out loud, but in this moment, I move closer to her, lips like a vault, securing all my thoughts around my tongue. 
She backs herself into the corner, jaw slack, eyes wide. "How long did this take?" She points to my arms, covered with words.
The first time I'd pushed a needle into my skin was when Cadmium died. At first, the pain had pulled me out of my grief... made me feel something greater than the loss of her. But, I'd refused to be the guy labeled as a 'cutter'. No, I was purposeful with my pain, etching Cadmium's words into my skin. Each promise, fear, and every other word she had ever spoken was now a part of me.
Flesh of my flesh.
For a brief moment, I witnessed pity in Jessie's eyes. Pity was for people who asked for it. I didn't need it or want it.
I move closer so I can lean into her, exhale against her ear and answer, "Years. But forever wouldn't be long enough to finish what I started."
Goosebumps rise on her neck, her pale skin flushing from her heated blood. "You're a cutter? You do this to make yourself numb?" 
She's psychoanalyzing me. It makes me angry. "Oh, the misconceptions," I laugh into her neck, then pull back to look in her eyes. "Carved, tattooed, branded; any of these would be more accurate, Jessie.”
Pity has fully disappeared from eyes, and now she’s staring at me like I could be Lucifer. I’m feeding off of her discomfort, so I taunt her. “You disappoint me. I thought you were a stone pillar with a solid foundation, rooted firmly in your own resolve." I place my finger against her shoulder and nudge her. "But look how easily you sway under the pressure. Your core is corroded." 
"Why are you so hateful?" she asks, choking on her question as she shoves my hand away. Her eyes began to glisten, darting between me and the door. 
It's then I realize she's a coward. Escape routes forming in her head, plan B always set "just in case".  I thought she was different. She is, I remind myself. She just doesn’t know it yet. "You gonna run, Jessie?" I sneer, towering over her fear crippled stature.
Your move sweet girl. 
She squares her shoulders, taking on a challenging stance. "I want to understand." Her voice is stern, but I hear her insecurities in every word. She wraps her hand around my forearm, looking up at me as if I might be the savior she's been in search of. "I don't know you, but I want to.  The real you. I've never been more scared of someone in my life, and not because I think you will harm me. It’s your thoughts that breath life to my fear, Reeve."

Brianna has lived the last eight years of her life alone, and that’s how she intends to spend the rest of it. Before moving to California permanently, she stops off to visit her foster family, the only true people she has ever loved and valued. During her months long stay in the little town of Fate Harbor Washington, Brianna meets Sheriff Charlie Meade and the town vet, Zac Carmichael. Both men are loving, caring and think the world of her. Brianna is horrified to realize how badly she has deceived them.
Brianna knows she has to quickly leave town. Despite the adamant entreaties of her family, she is determined go before things unravel even more and she becomes a burden to the people she loves the most. Can Zac, Charlie and the family make one last ditch effort to make Brianna realize how much they want to care for her no matter what the future might hold?

Exclusive Excerpt
“Wrap your legs around me,” he commanded and she did. She was stunned when he walked over to the kitchen. “So what did she cook up for us Zac?” Brianna giggled. She had seen teenagers do this, and here she was being carried around by the high school quarterback, just like she was some fourteen year girl, and she was loving every minute of it.
“Lasagna, and it looks like she made it from scratch.” She heard the oven being opened behind her.
“Of course it’s from scratch. Mama Betty taught me how to cook.” She snuggled closer, resting her head into the crook of Charlie’s neck.
“It smells wonderful. I didn’t eat, you had me too worked up.” Charlie adjusted their position just a little, and just like that Brianna found the panel of her pantyhose nestled against the ridge of his erect cock. She was so turned on she knew she was going to leave a wet spot on his uniform. She tried to wiggle away.
“No,” his tone brooked no argument.
“You don’t understand,” she whispered, squirming to get down.
“Oh yes I do. You stay right the fuck where you are. I feel your nipples like diamonds against my chest. I can smell your cunt, and feel you marking me. You’re not going anywhere. This is the sexiest thing I’ve ever experienced in my life.” She was mesmerized by the power and demand in his voice as he ground himself against her. Then Zac’s hand pushed her hair away from her neck, biting down on the tendon between her shoulder and neck, catapulting her into a powerful orgasm. She was trembling, and then she felt Charlie transfer her into Zac’s arms, and she was carried to the sofa. She looked up, and both men were standing over her, and she felt dizzy, fuzzy, warm and almost protected. It was the oddest moment of her life. Light and dark angels. She felt her eyes closing and slid into that realm between sleep and awareness.

Cover Reveal - The Second Life of Magnolia Mae by Angela Schroeder

The Second Life of Magnolia Mae CR Banner  

Title: The Second Life of Magnolia Mae Author: Angela Schroeder Genre: Young Adult Release Date: December 2 Publisher: Blue Tulip Publishing

the second life of magnolia mae 500x750

  Synopsis Magnolia Mae has always had strange dreams, even before her parents died in a car crash leaving her older brother to raise her. Only a few weeks before Halloween and her eighteenth birthday the dreams start to come more frequently, her life seems even more chaotic than usual and the guilt that she did not stop her parents’ death is beginning to tear her apart.

   Excerpt If not for Magnolia, her parents would be alive. She’d known they were going to get into a car wreck. She had seen it two nights before it happened. The screams had echoed in her head, the bursts of lightning mixed with the flashes of red and blue from the emergency responders had been forever implanted in her memory even before it had happened. The dream had seemed so real — they always seemed so real — that she’d cried hysterically until her parents found her curled on the floor of her room. They had assured her that it had only been a nightmare. Two nights later, they’d gone out in a storm to pick her up from rehearsal. Trying to avoid the deer had thrown their car into a hydroplane that had connected them with a lone tree in the ditch.
