Alex_small

**Author note below

An Armed and Dangerous novella: When Nicole Landford makes a bet with her cousins to go after the first man who “trips her trigger,” little does she know that she’s in for the ride of her life. Unfortunately it’s with the last man on earth she wants to be with.

Alex Grand’s had his eye on Nicole for years. Now that he’s got her attention, he’s got more than his hands full with the wild thing who claims her heart is not up for grabs. But Alex intends to tame Nicole’s wild heart and make the woman his for keeps.

**Please note: “Alex” is a spinoff novella from “Kade,” an Armed and Dangerous novel. “Alex” was originally published in eBook in the “Hearts are Wild” anthology with Ellora’s Cave under the title “Wild Hearts”. Alex’s first name has been changed due to changes made at the request of St. Martin’s Press for the other novels in the series. Alex isn’t armed, but he is dangerous… Fair warning: “Alex” is far more erotic than the Armed and Dangerous novels!

Here’s an excerpt just for you!

PLEASE NOTE: This excerpt has been tamed down a bit for this blog. Fair warning: ALEX is anything but tame. Be prepared to have a nice cool drink with you when you read this novella!

“Damn it.” Nicole Landford propped her hands on her full hips and scowled. “You have some nerve up and dying on me out here in the middle of nowhere.”

With all her pent-up frustration, Nicole kicked the tire of her red ‘63 Corvette with the toe of her four-inch heel and winced. She had only managed to hurt her big toe, not to mention scuffing the bluish-green shoe that matched her mini-dress and the unusual shade of her eyes.

The ‘vette ignored her tirade as steam continued to hiss from beneath the hood. An acrid burnt rubber stench rose up in the air, along with the smell of radiator fluid. Heat rolled over Nicole in waves, adding to the perspiration already beading on her face. Why couldn’t the damn thing have died in Douglas, or even Bisbee? At least then she’d have been near a phone. And of course, actually bringing her cell phone would have been a stroke of genius.

With an irritated sigh, Nicole shoved her long blonde hair out of her face with one hand and looked around at the endless miles of ranch land. If she had been on a highway, she could have stuck out one bare leg, hitched up the miniskirt of her backless dress, and flagged down some gorgeous man. Oh, hell, any man would do, so long as she could get to Dee MacLeod’s house.

But here she was on a dirt road and she’d taken one hell of a wrong turn. That’s what she got for not paying attention. Instead of ending up at least on the road to the Flying M, the MacLeod Ranch, she was stuck out here with nothing around her but dirt, grass, barbed wire fences, and cattle. It was a hot, muggy, and overcast late August afternoon, and more sweat dripped down the side of her face. Thunderclouds were building up to the south and she could smell the promise of a monsoon storm that could come out of nowhere in a hurry.

That would be the icing on her cake.

Off in the distance Nicole could see Alex Grand’s ranch, but she was in no mood to mess with that cowboy, no matter how sexy the man was. She and Alex had been butting heads since elementary school, and all she needed was another confrontation with him. They never had seen eye to eye on anything, and the man always seemed amused by their arguing. No, she didn’t have time for him.

Especially not when she was a woman on a mission.

A few days ago, Nicole and her cousins Lily and Sabrina had made a pact. The first man who “tripped her trigger”, as Sabrina had said, was the man Nicole had to go all-out for, no matter what or who. Wild and crazy sex, and as much of it as possible. For one month and one month only.

They had made a bet and damned if Nicole was going to be the one to lose out on it. Out of all three cousins, Nicole was the one who had no reservations about enjoying sex with the men she chose to date. She was a free spirit—no emotional ties. All she ever looked for was a good time. Her cousins were more reserved—especially Lily, who probably hadn’t been laid for years.

Nicole intended to make good on the bet. Only problem was, she had yet to find a single man who even interested her. It had been a few days since they’d made the pact after Aunt Viv’s fifty-fifth birthday celebration, and Nicole had no prospects on the horizon.

To try and stir up some action, before her damn car had died on her, Nicole had been on her way to the MacLeod Ranch where her friend Trace was visiting from Texas. Trace was happily married now to a sexy cowboy named Jess Lawless, but she was going to buddy up with Nicole, along with the sheriff’s wife, Catie Savage. The three planned to head over to Sierra Vista to one of the local hot spots so that Nicole could find a man who turned her on enough to pursue a romp in the hay with. There were plenty of hot Border Patrol and Customs agents in the area, as well as sexy military men from Ft. Huachuca, not to mention some damn fine ranchers. All Nicole had to do was find one who made her hot and go for it.

But first she had to get there.

“Okay, you piece of—of…” Nicole went around to the front of the car, tried to pop the hood, and snatched back her hand. The damn thing was boiling hot.

She gave another frustrated sigh, but this time in deference to her pride and joy. “I’m sorry, baby. I love you and I shouldn’t get so mad.” Hell, she and her cherry red ‘vette had been through a lot together, so what was a little breakdown now and again?

The low of a cow from the other side of the barbed wire fence drew Nicole’s attention and wrath instead. “Beat it, you slobber-mouthed beast.”

The white-faced Hereford just chewed her cud as she studied Nicole with her big brown eyes, and then turned away. The muggy Arizona summer afternoon intensified the smell of the cow and the dust her hooves kicked up. More cattle plodded by at a slow and easy pace, eating snatches of grass, green from recent monsoon rains. Occasionally, they gave a loud “moo”. Two calves bawled and poked their faces through the fence, before their mothers nudged them along.

Nicole glanced to the south again. It would be her luck for the storm to rain on her parade. Not that it would matter now. Her blonde hair was wilting fast, her makeup running down her face, and her dress rumpling in the humidity.

So much for “dry heat”.

After a few moments, the steam lessened. Nicole used a cloth from the backseat of her car to pop the hood and then prop it up. She tossed the cloth on the fender, folded her arms beneath her generous cleavage and glared at the radiator, which probably needed to be replaced. It wasn’t easy finding parts for a car over forty years old.

She stomped away, as best she could in those four-inch heels she used to love—

And felt something warm and wet squish around her foot.

With a groan she looked down, knowing what she’d see. She had managed to step into a nice, big, smelly, fresh pile of cow manure.

Great. Just great.

Nicole almost ripped both her heels off and threw them over the fence at the cattle and said to hell with it. Instead she took a deep breath and turned her gaze to the cloudy sky. “Are you out to get me?”

Thunder rumbled in the distance. Wind picked up and lifted her damp hair from her shoulders. Well, there was her answer.

She groaned and wiped off the manure on a clump of grass. So much for those heels.

When her shoe was mostly de-crapified, she leaned in the ‘vette’s open window and snatched the keys out of the ignition. She rounded the car, opened the trunk, and grabbed a new jug of radiator fluid. As she started to shut the lid, her keys slipped out of her hand and into the trunk.

“No!” she shouted, dropping the jug and leaping to stop the trunk lid.

Her keys clanked at the bottom of the trunk. The lid thunked shut.

Nicole groaned and flattened her palms against the sun-warmed car. “Shit. Shitshitshitshitshit!”

Before she realized what was happening, large male hands were on either side of hers, braced on the trunk lid, and a very big male body virtually surrounded her.

Nicole froze. Her heart started to pound like a cattle stampede.

“Now, hon—” came Alex Grand’s low drawl, “—you really ought to watch your language.”

For a moment her body sagged, she was so thankful it wasn’t some rapist who had snuck up on her. But in the next second she gritted her teeth, pissed it was Alex and that he had scared her like he had.

She tried to twist away but he had her blocked with his powerful arms. She clenched her hands into fists. “I’m in no mood for your bullshit, Alex Grand.”

Just as she was about to try to push back and shove him off, he leaned in close, his body pressed against hers. She could feel his heat, the rough denim of his shirt against her bare back, his jeans through the thin material covering her ass. She could smell his masculine scent of sweat, horse, and summer wind.

“Now what are you in the mood for, Nicole Landford?” he asked in a low rumble that vibrated throughout her body and made the hairs on her nape stand on end. A thrill zipped straight to her belly.

Alex Grand had tripped her trigger.

“Not you.” She slumped forward, buried her face in her arms on the trunk lid, and her words came out muffled. “I don’t care. Not you. Not in a million years. Oh, shit.”

Friday Freebie…KADE: Armed and Dangerous! #bookgiveaway

KADE: Armed and Dangerous is available now! #eBook #Print #Excerpt #bookgiveaway

Originally titled “Wild Borders,” KADE was the first romance I wrote. It was published after the other books in the series, but it is one of my favorite books. Kelsey has bits of me in her. A struggle with self-confidence and body image. She’s strong but a little on the shy side at times.

Kelsey was married to a verbally and emotionally abusive man, but Kade shows herjust how special she is. He’s strong and sexy and the kind of man Kelsey deserves.

I hope you enjoy reading KADE as much as I enjoyed writing the book!

Don’t miss the excerpt!

Kade_small

**Author note below

After a bitter divorce, reporter Kelsey Nichols has erected a border around her heart too strong for any man to cross. She’s not ready for a relationship of any kind with any man. But when Kelsey meets Kade she can think of nothing but being in his powerful arms.

Intelligence Agent Kade Owen is hot on the trail of a notorious smuggler when the sensual blonde reporter comes into his life. Once he gets a hold of Kelsey, nothing will stop Kade from winning her heart.

**Please note: “Kade” was published in print only with St. Martin’s Griffin. “Kade” was originally published in eBook and print with Ellora’s Cave under the title “Wild Borders”. Character names were changed at St. Martin’s request.

~*~

Here’s an excerpt of KADE just for you!

“I want to see you again.” Kade flicked on a light as he drew Kelsey through the door, and it slammed shut behind her.

Her throat tightened and went as dry as the Arizona desert. “I—I…”

But her words vanished, her mind blank, as Kade took her face in his palms and captured her gaze with his.

“Kade, I—” But she no longer knew the meaning of up or down, and she melted against him, wanting him. His earthy scent intoxicated her, filling her senses, confusing her beyond the effects of the alcohol.

“Darlin’, what you do to me,” Kade said against her lips. “Let me taste you.”

“Yes,” she whispered.

He brushed his lips over hers. Just a whisper kiss. The light touch of his lips and the feel of his fingers on her skin made her nipples ache. A wave of longing crested, then crashed within her soul.

She pressed herself closer to him and heard a soft moan.

Coming from her.

The tip of his tongue outlined her bottom lip, a feather caress that sent desire spiraling within. She parted her lips and his tongue met hers, a velvet softness that she savored like golden honey. “You taste so good,” he murmured.

Citrus from the margarita was still sweet on his tongue and she wrapped her arms around his neck as their kiss deepened. She smelled the light apple fragrance of his hair and slid her fingers into the soft strands, knocking his cowboy hat off.

With a jolt, Kelsey became aware of Kade’s erection against her belly. A voice inside her shouted, telling her she couldn’t go any further. Not with someone she barely knew. But her mind and body refused to listen.

As if he heard her thoughts, he let out a ragged breath and stepped back, leaving her feeling almost empty. Alone.

Kade traced one finger along her cheekbone and she shuddered with longing. “Say you’ll see me again.”

He looked so handsome, his chestnut hair in disarray, passion in his eyes.

“I—I don’t know if that’s a good idea.” It took all her willpower not to throw her arms around him and tell him to spend the night. She had never been with a man other than Davis in a sexual way, and it frightened her how much she wanted Kade.

Right here. Right now.

Kade caught both her hands in his. “Have breakfast with me.”

She shook her head. “I have a meeting, and then I’m going out of town.”

He brought her hands to his mouth and trailed his lips over her knuckles, sending shivers throughout her, those intense blue eyes never leaving hers. “How do I reach you?”

Trying to regain even a modicum of self-control, Kelsey freed her hands and absently rubbed the scar on her upper thigh through the material of her dress. “I’ll sleep on it. If I see you before I leave, I’ll let you know.”

“All right.” He kissed her again, a soft, lingering kiss. He smiled and caressed her cheek, then turned and slipped out the door.

And she was really alone then.

Dazed, Kelsey moved toward the bed and almost tripped over Kade’s cowboy hat. She picked it up, wondering if she should take it to him.

No. Tomorrow morning would be soon enough.

Kelsey ran a shaking hand through her hair. What had she just done? She’d experienced the most incredible kiss of her life—from a virtual stranger.

She sat on the edge of the bed, then flopped onto her back, Kade’s hat still cradled to her chest. She inhaled deeply, drinking in the intoxicating smell of him that clung to the felt Stetson. That masculine scent that made her ache for him.

What would it have been like to make love to Kade? The thought caused a thrill to skip around in her belly.

Kelsey closed her eyes, still holding Kade’s hat close to her chest. She imagined actually letting herself go and being with that tall, dark, sexy cowboy who managed to break through the ice of resistance coating her heart and soul since her divorce. She couldn’t let him all the way in, but it wouldn’t hurt to fantasize about him, right?

Heat filled her body and her cheeks flushed. No, that was ridiculous.

Still clutching Kade’s Stetson, she slipped into a restless sleep and dreamed of cowboys, mustangs, and the Arizona desert.

Come meet Sexy Dom, Brent Weston, & his High School crush, Sandra Barry of Club Desire

My Obsession

Welcome to Club Desire. I hope you enjoy meeting our Dungeon Master and his lady…

Brent Weston:

It’s nice to meet you.  I’m Brent Weston, owner and head Dom of Club Desire, the premier dungeon and sex club in the Southwestern U.S.  I’d love to have you come by and take a tour sometime soon, or attend a munch.

What’s that?

A munch is what those in the lifestyle call our meet and greets to get more information about the lifestyle and membership to Club Desire.

Club Desire accommodates nearly any legal, safe and consensual kink, and we have facilities and equipment for all of the more popular ones, and try to expand as needed into new areas.

Bondage?

Yes, that’s one of the main alternatives here, and we are fully equipped to accommodate all levels of play.  The D/s relationship is a beautiful power exchange between two people.

It’s a common misperception that the Dom has all the power in the equation.  In fact, the sub has much more power, and that’s as it should be.  As a Dom, it is my responsibility to ensure the safety of my sub and make sure everything we do is sane and consensual.  I’m responsible for their well being and their pleasure.  It’s a heady thing for a sub to willingly give up some of their power to their Dom for a time.  But at any time they can take that power back by the use of their safeword.

I pride myself on ensuring I understand both their soft and hard limits before we begin any play, and staying very aware of my subs’ reactions, state of mind, and needs throughout our session.

My goal is to give them exactly what they need and crave, even if they aren’t sure what that is and want to be gently led.  I always try to take them to new heights of pleasure without ever pushing them so far that they would have need of their safeword.  But if they do use it, I honor it immediately, and make sure they are all right in Aftercare, which is what we call the time spent between Dom and sub after a scene, which allows them both to come down from any highs caused by the play, and allows the Dom to evaluate the well being of the sub and care for them.

Does that sound like something you might be interested in?

I’m glad.

I invite you to be my guest for an evening so I can introduce you to some of our Doms and subs.  And if watching is one of your desires, we have many areas where you can watch the play by play on the dungeon floors without being seen, or even still enjoying play while you watch.  Club Desire has 5 dungeon levels to meet all manner of kinks and preferences.  I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.

In fact, next Saturday night a large group has rented out Basement 4 for a reenactment of a Roman Orgy.  I would be happy to reserve a private alcove on Basement 3 for you so you can watch, if you like.

I look forward to introducing you to Club Desire.

Sandra Barry:

Hello, I’m Sandra Barry.  I’m a sub here at Club Desire.  It’s great to meet you.

Oh, that sexy man over there?  That’s Brent Weston, Master Brent, the owner of Club Desire.  He’s amazing, isn’t he?

He keeps in shape by doing martial arts.  He has black belts in a few different types, but none of us can never remember what they are.  We always mean to ask but once he and Master Dex start sparring and all those gorgeous masculine muscles start moving in a deadly-looking motion, we are all so mesmerized we’re lucky we don’t forget our names!

Who?  Oh.  That’s Master Dex, the one I mentioned who spars with Master Brent in martial arts.

The man just behind him is Master Logan.

I know!  The Doms here are a walking wet dream, and you’ve only seen three of them!  They are all amazing both on and off the dungeon floor.

No, I’ve played with other Doms in my old dungeon, but not here.  Master Brent is my only Dom at Club Desire.  But all the subs here are very close and we do exchange information and compare notes.  I also like to watch scenes with different Doms and subs.  It’s one of my favorite things besides actually playing scenes with Master Brent.

The other subs?  They’re all great!  In fact, on Wednesday nights, we meet at a local bakery to chat, and of course, sample bakery items!  Anything chocolate is usually a favorite for everyone.

You’re welcome to join us.  You could learn about each of the Doms and ask any questions you have about Club Desire.  I’ve only been a sub at one other dungeon but I know Min and Sherri have been at several, so they can give you insight into how Club Desire compares to others.  But Club Desire is widely considered one of the premier dungeons in the entire Southwestern U.S.

Club Desire accommodates pretty much any safe, legal, consensual kink you can think of, and it’s an amazing facility.  There are four basement floors, the main ground level dungeon floor and then there are five levels above that.

Yes, it does look almost like a gothic castle that erupted out of the top of the mountain.  You should come back and see it at night.  That’s how I first saw it and I had visions of being carried off to my doom somewhere.  But then I do read a lot of gothic novels.

Oh, that’s not a problem.  There’s no need to be embarrassed about liking or not liking any particular thing.  After all, this is a sex Club.  Granted, it’s a very high-class sex club, but everyone is here for the same reason, so there’s no judgment unless you break the rules.

The rules?  You know, things like no touching anyone else without permission, not respecting someone’s limits or safeword.  Things like that.  They are all laid out before you are given unrestricted access to any areas beyond the lobby.

What’s that?  Uh…  You would have to talk to Master Dex about that directly, but I can definitely introduce you…

I hope you enjoyed meeting Brent and Sandra.  If you leave a comment on this blog and tell me what your favorite part of the interview was or what you hope to find out about in the book, I’ll randomly draw someone to win a kindle (or Nook) copy of My Obsession.

Here’s the blurb:  Running from a troubled past, Sandra Barry spent years hiding out in New York City’s BDSM scene, finding satisfaction and even a sense of community as a sub at a large dungeon. But when a stalker joins the dungeon posing as a Dom, he crosses her personal boundaries, giving her no choice but to return home to Arizona. Seeking refuge once again in the kink lifestyle, Sandra meets a sexy new Dom whose tutelage drives her wild—although there’s something familiar about him she just can’t place.

As a teenager, Brent Weston was a nerd. Now he owns the hottest dungeon in Phoenix, enjoying the power and success he’s always craved. All that’s missing is the right woman to share it with. Then one day Sandra, his secret high school crush, walks into his club. She’s just as beautiful as he remembers. She’s also scared as hell. Brent has been waiting for this moment, and now that Sandra’s in his sights, he’ll do anything to protect her, pleasure her—and prove that he’s the only master worthy of her devotion.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this look into my world of kink!

Teaser Tuesday: Excerpt from HIDDEN PREY from Lawmen Box set

Lawmen Box Set now Available!

Lawmen_boxset_3d_300

Here’s a teaser for you from HIDDEN PREY, the first book in the “Lawmen” series, now available in the LAWMEN BOX SET. The box set is available for a limited time!

HIDDEN PREY

Almost absently, Landon rubbed his thumb along Tori’s delicate jawline while they both remained quiet. He liked the way she fit in his arms. It felt…right.

It was the right time to tell her about what happened with Brian. Landon knew he should do it now.

And then every good intention vanished as she tipped her face up to look at him. Her eyelashes glittered from the remainder of her tears and her brown eyes seemed even darker than normal. As their gazes met and held, he didn’t think he’d ever be able to look away from her again. She drew him to her in so many ways and he was helpless to stop himself from wanting to get closer to her.

The other agents were downstairs and he was upstairs, alone. With Tori.

This wasn’t smart.

Hell, it was a long, long way from smart.

He held his breath, then let out a slow exhale as he lowered his mouth to hers.

The moment their lips met, she gave a sigh, surrendering herself to his kiss. That sense of surrender fueled him, somehow making him desire her even more than he already did.

He moved his lips over hers, hungry for the taste of her, the feel of her. Her scent filled him, as if a part of her was now inside him. Her lips were so soft, her taste exquisite on his tongue. God, he knew he could never get enough of her.

She leaned into him as their body heat melded, fusing them together in a way that defied explanation. Her sighs turned into a soft moan as he moved his hands over her shoulders, down her arms, and to her waist. She was wearing one of her new T-shirts and he pushed the hem up just enough that he could feel her soft skin along the waistband. He gripped her slender waist in his hands, his fingers brushing the base of her spine where she’d been tattooed.

Her hunger and his grew in matching intensity. She moved her palms up his chest to his shoulders and gripped them like she was afraid she would slide away if she didn’t hold on tightly.

Find the LAWMEN BOX SET at your favorite eBook retailers for only $8.99!

Prices have been reduced temporarily across the board and it WAS $12.97 for all three. NOW it’s only $8.99 for the box set!

Bisbee is a fantastic small town in Arizona and is the setting for my latest romantic suspense series: Lawmen

Lawmen Banner

Cheyenne’s “Lawmen” romantic suspense series

I’m an Arizona native and grew up in Bisbee and on a ranch about 15 miles outside the Bisbee town limits–it’s a fascinating former copper mining town with amazing history.

Panorama_of_Bisbee,_Arizona_LCCN2007661376

In the late 1800’s/early 1900’s, with over 20,000 people, Bisbee was the largest and most cultured city between St. Louis and San Francisco! Those days are long gone and Bisbee is a sleepy town and artists’ community of about 5,500 resident.

My Grandfather was born in Panna Maria, Texas in 1900. He and my grandmother moved to Bisbee where my grandfather worked in the copper mines. Their children, including my mother, were all raised in Bisbee.

Of course, many years later I came along. I grew up mostly on the ranch outside of Bisbee with my parents and two brothers. My father was a firefighter in Bisbee for 20 years.

Chey with brothers and Dad in Bisbee

Most likely, you’ve seen the wild west side of Bisbee in movies featuring sexy cowboys accompanied by virtuous (and not so virtuous) women in Brewery Gulch, but there are other, lesser known sides of Bisbee that are begging to be explored. Located in the heart of the Mule Mountains, Bisbee offers some of the most beautiful country in all of Arizona, but it’s not just the alluring ranch hands and pretty scenery that gives Bisbee its romantic feel; it’s the ghosts.

Yes. The ghosts.

And there are plenty of well known haunts in Bisbee.

Mining was a dangerous job, and although no one has reported any ghosts in the Queen Mine, that doesn’t mean they aren’t there. Even without the ghosts, you can explore the depths of the mine for precious metals and live the dangerous life of a miner for a little while. Just be careful not to slip in the dark; you might get dirty….

Bisbee’s Ghostly Oliver House…

While the darkness of the mine is a bit scary, your hotel room is the place to really get your heart racing-especially if you are staying at the Oliver House. Since its completion in 1909, over 27 people have died in the House, but don’t worry-no one has met their end there in quite a while. Of course, this doesn’t stop those who did from making regular appearances; guests have reported hearing footsteps in the hallway and feeling cold spots in the Plum Room.

If you really want to be scared out of your skin (or clothes), stay in the infamous room 13, where Nat Anderson was murdered in 1920. Anderson, a mine worker, was having an affair with the wife of “The Money Man,” a local to whom Nat owed money. When “The Money Man” discovered the affair, he supposedly made his way to the Oliver House and shot Nat in the back of the head. Despite the obvious motive, the murder remains officially unsolved-meaning that Nat Anderson’s ghost can’t rest easy.

Nat wasn’t the only one to be caught up in a dangerous tryst at the Oliver House, and many of the ghosts that haunt the hallways are victims of their own passions. Among these are the ghosts of a local police officer, his wife, and her lover; after discovering the affair, the police officer rushed to the Oliver House and murdered the couple. After driving a short distance, the jilted husband then turned the gun on himself. It’s reported that all three of these ghosts are tied to the Oliver House forever.

All this sex and violence means that the Oliver House practically vibrates with paranormal energy. Curl up with your own lover for protection and have your own romantic affair-after all, nothing is sexier than a good ghost story.

And just in time, you might be able to slip in on the Oliver House’s Haunted Weekend the end of this month. 🙂

Douglas is around 25 miles from Bisbee, and is the setting for my Armed and Dangerous series. Part of the A & D series takes place in Bisbee, too. I don’t know if there are ghosts in Douglas, but there are plenty to go around in Bisbee!

Today I want to share with you the Lawmen series!

“New York Times best selling author Cheyenne McCray returns to steamy romantic suspense with high-octane thrillers featuring hunky western federal agents and the strong women who come into their lives.”

The “Lawmen” series has been one of my favorite to write. Set in Southeastern Arizona, where I grew up, the series is filled with cowboy lawmen who are melt-in-your-mouth sexy.

HIDDEN PREY

Tori Cox, a talented and sought after musician, heads back to her roots in a small southwest town in Arizona as she flees an abusive relationship. When she arrives in Bisbee, she finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time—and witnesses the execution of a Federal agent by none other than the son of El Demonio, the head of the Jimenez Cartel. Tori and everyone she loves is now in danger as the cartel comes after her before she can testify.

Landon Walker, a special agent with the Department of Homeland Security, rescues Tori when he sees the beautiful woman running from members of one of the most ruthless cartels in the world. He sets out to protect her, but soon protecting her isn’t enough. The fire between them makes him want her in a way that he’s never wanted another woman, despite his wounded heart.

Diego Montego Jimenez will do everything in his power to kill the young American woman who threatens his business and family. No one lives to testify against the Jimenez Cartel. Landon isn’t about to let the cartel get hold of Tori. He’ll go to the ends of the earth and back to protect her—and show her he’s never letting her go.

NO MERCY

Over twenty years ago, when she was just a teenager, Belle ran from everything she knew to escape her abusive stepfather. She left behind the boy she loved and a circle of friends who had been like family to her since childhood.

Now, years later, the death of one of her close friends brings her face-to-face with the boy she had to leave. Only now he’s not a boy anymore.

Dylan has never gotten over Belle running away all those years ago. When Nate—one of their Circle of Seven childhood friends—is found dead, Belle and Dylan are drawn back together. It’s not long before he realizes he has a second chance to make her his.

The second reason Belle left could ruin any future she might have with Dylan. The secret hangs over her head while she falls in love with him all over again.

When a dangerous drug cartel starts targeting the Circle of Seven friends, Dylan must use all his federal law enforcement training and contacts to stay one step ahead. He must solve the clues Nate left behind before all of them end up dead.

SLOW BURN
