Paradise Lost Series
All Free in KU
3 Book Box Set

From Book 1: 
Kiley: I only have one goal, to go to Grand Cayman, find the man responsible for destroying my life and make him pay. Everything was working according to plan until Zach stumbled into my world. All dimples, blue eyes, a body straight out of a fantasy… and trouble.
Zach: I didn’t have any goal except to forget the girl who ruined my life. Drinking and f*cking my way through winter break on Grand Cayman seemed like a good plan, until I met Kiley. Blonde, with fiery eyes and a temper to match, all I can think about now is those long legs wrapped around me.
Kiley: Zach stands in the way of me getting everything I’ll ever need. Why does he suddenly seem like the only thing I’ll ever want?
Zach: Having Kiley would mean losing everything I want. But could she be the only thing I’ll ever need? 

The Kings of Brighton Series
Tobias Book 1

I learned a long time ago that people can’t be trusted.
I have my brothers.
I don’t need anyone else.
Argenta was an anomaly.
A moment of weakness.
In the space of one night, she slipped past every one of my defenses. For one brief, terrifying moment, she had me believing she was different.
That we could be different.
But in the cold light of day, I saw the truth. She was just like the rest.
I sent her away and tried to move on.
But five years later, here she is.
Only her name’s not Argenta, it’s Silver.
Her father is my newest business partner and she is not the person I thought she was.
She pretends not to know me, but I can see it her eyes.
She knows exactly who I am.
And she hates my guts.
That’s too bad because I’ve decided to keep her.
She’s mine.
This time, she’s not going anywhere.

***Tobias is a full-length stand-alone contemporary romance (and a low-key secret-baby romance. shhh...) with plenty of heat, no cliffhanger and a heart-melting HEA***

One Night Series
2 book set

From Book 1: One night.

A moment a weakness.
I took something I never should’ve been allowed to have.
Claire St. James.
Even though I knew she was too good for me.
Even though I knew if she ever learned the truth about me she’d run, screaming in the other direction.
Even though I knew she and I could never have a future.
She offered me her innocence and I took it.
And then I disappeared without a trace.
I told myself it was better for her this way.
That a girl like her has no business with a guy like me.
That she’d forget about me.
Move on.
Find someone better.
Five years later, I’m still trying to find my way out from under her. Deal with the mountain of mistakes that stood between us.
When I come face to face with her again, I’m not ready.
I’m still broken.
But this is it.
My second chance to get things right between us.
And this time, I’m not walking away.

About Megyn Ward:
Megyn Ward lives on coffee, chocolate and more than the occasional glass of red wine. When she's not spending time with the hot, dirty-talking Alphas and the strong, capable women who love them, that live in her head, she's busy chasing chickens (and kids), hanging laundry and burning dinner. Either way, she is almost always in the company of her seven dogs, her truest and most faithful companions, and her almost as faithful husband, Joe.

Interview With Megyn Ward:

1. Can you tell us a little about your books?
Sure! I write contemporary romance that ranges from steamy to erotic. My stories usually center around families and I'm a sucker for a good second-chance romance so that's what I tend to write.

2. How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?
I’ve written 14 books as Megyn Ward. Of those I think it’s a tie between DRIVE and HAVING HENLEY. They’re both second-chance romance and super hot.

3. Do you have a special time to write or how is your day structured?
I have 4 kids so grabbing writing time can be tricky sometimes. I try to keep office hours. 10AM-4PM, Monday thru Friday. I try to take the weekends off to spend with my family but sometimes it doesn’t always work out. To be honest, the most difficult thing about being a writer, to me, is finding that balance between work and family.

4. How do you come up with your characters names?
I like names that sound like they could be family names and “old-fashioned” names for my heroines. Strong-sounding names for my heroes.  I also like names that mean something so I spend a fair amount of time researching names to make sure they fit my characters personality.

5. If you could be friends with one of your character, which one would you chose?
Just one? I have two characters that I really connect with—Claire from DRIVE and Tesla from my series, THE GILROY CLAN. I think if I smashed them together, that character would me my twin.

6. Do you have a release day tradition?
I take the day off. I don’t any writing and I just enjoy the fact that I’ve accomplished something no many people can say that they have. It’s an awesome feeling that’ll never get old.

7. If your fairy godmother waved her wand and whisked you away to the location of your choice, which place would you choose?
Paris! I have family there so it’d be nice to see them. We’re actually going in the fall to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I guess I’ll have to find a new place for my fairy godmother to take me.

8. For someone who hasn't read any of your books yet, which one would you suggest they read first?
I’d suggest they start with PUSHING PATRICK. PP is the first book in my series THE GILROY CLAN. It’s an 8-book series (…maybe 10. I think I have a side character that needs his own book but I’m not sure yet.) and very much needs to be read in order so starting at the beginning is essential. If you’re looking for a quick read just to see what I’m about, I suggest DRIVE. It’s got everything I love in a contemporary romance and can be read for free is your sign up for my newsletter.

9. What writing projects are you currently working on?
So. Many. Projects.
I’m currently writing TAMING TESLA, book 6 in my GILROY CLAN series as well as putting final edits on my latest with my co-writer, Shannen Black, called MY WAY TO YOU. I also have a stand-alone called MR. WRONG in the ILLICIT boxed set. After these projects are cleared, I’ll start GRAYSON, which is book two in my Gilroy series spin-off, THE KINGS OF BRIGHTON.

“Are you sure?” Because she isn’t acting like it.
“Yeah, this will solve the questioning.” That doesn’t sound so great.
I rock back on my heels. “About?”
Splotches of red stain her cheeks. “Ah, well... if this,” she motions between us, “was heading in a romantic direction.”
I feel the blood drain from my face. “What do you mean?”
“If we’re living together, the potential of us dating is zippo. We’ll be roommates and friends, but that’s all. Otherwise it will be awkward and tense and blah. No, thanks. Setting this boundary will cut out the possibility.”
I choke on the brick lodged in my throat. “Wait, what?”
“Can you imagine the mess we’d be stuck in if things went sour? Better to not chance it, right?”
No, no, no.
I blink slowly, trying to process her words. Is this an unwritten rule I wasn’t aware of? And what, now I’m trapped in the friend-zone? I avert my eyes, glaring at a neon sign stuck to the far wall. An outcome that doesn’t involve us as a couple seems impossible. I rapidly search for a counter-argument, begging for a way out of this mess.
What the hell happens now?
