EXCERPT

My arms pumped with the desperation consuming me. A glance over my shoulder as I threw open the French door showed Rafael brutally shoving his cousin to the side to get past him. The breath froze in my lungs as I moved, my chest unnaturally tight as I ran.
The view of the shed up ahead in the distance served as a cruel reminder of all the ways Rafe had ruined me.
He’d taken an innocent girl who’d survived his father’s wrath and done what he’d failed to do. He killed her—turned her into a phantom of his own making.
A murderer.
Even wanting nothing to do with that shed and the recent memory that threatened to slow me down, I turned my back on the docks and sprinted in its direction up the driveway. Closer to civilization and escape, even knowing in my heart that the flight was pointless.
I stumbled, my heel tilting to the side as I traversed the slight incline with ragged breaths. The roll of my ankle shot pain up my leg, a whimper escaping my throat as I looked behind me. Rafael was quickly closing the distance between us, his face twisted into a murderous expression as he ate up the head start his cousin’s interference had provided me.
“Isa, stop,” he ordered, his low and impossible quiet voice traveling through the air. The sound shouldn’t have reached me, but something in that command felt like I would hear it anywhere. No matter where in the world I was, no matter where he was, the instinctive desire to submit to his will overwhelmed me.
Only the panic coursing through my veins drove me to keep moving, to stumble along the path with the limp from my sprained ankle. Even knowing it was futile and that Rafael would always catch me and drag me back to the pits of Hell with him, I kept going.
That feeling settled down my spine, the slow caress of a nightmare whispering along my skin when he came close enough to almost grab me.
One more step, and I could already feel the heat of his arms reaching to wrap around me in the next moment. The harshness of his grip as it would lift me off my feet.
I ducked, dropping to the ground and crab walking backwards on my hands as the devil himself loomed over me. Even in the moment with his expression calm and placating, cautious, as if I were a wounded animal he only wanted to help, that darkness lurked in his stunning gaze. The animalistic tilt of his head as he studied the prey he’d well and truly caught once again left little doubt as to just what kind of punishment he would deliver as soon as he pulled me into his evil embrace.
A shadow emerged from the other side of the driveway, a figure moving between us as if he didn’t fear death itself. Joaquin stepped over my body, positioning himself so that one foot was to either side of my thighs. “Get up, mi reina,” he said softly, glancing over his shoulder at where I panted on the ground beneath him.

Series: Secret Admirer Series
Author: Alex Jade
Genre: Sports Romance



BEHIND THE SCREENS

I may have made up a fake profile and slid into his DMs. Okay. Okay. Hear me out before you judge.

Guys like Davis Young, star fullback for the pro football team the Chicago Vandals, like a good chase. So, I simply made a game out of him finding out who I am. No harm done.

Well, maybe a little harm.

I thought he’d never noticed me at work, but turns out I might have been wrong. And before I know it, I’m living a double life with him with no way of getting out.

Now I’m praying it’s not game over.

BEHIND THE NUMBERS

So, I may or may not have sent a drunk text. And… I may or may not have also sent a racy picture of myself, too. It was supposed to be for fun. Just one problem—I sent it to the wrong number.

It went to Ryker Stone. The MVP quarterback of the Chicago Vandals. Oh, and also my ex-boyfriend.

Soon old feelings resurface and I find myself wanting a second chance. If only he knew it was me on the other side of the number.

Now I’m stuck. I should have known, when it comes to us, it’d come down to one final play.

BEHIND THE LETTERS

I regretted it the moment I clicked the send button. In my defense, at the time it seemed like a good idea to send him a secret admirer email. He’s not looking for anyone serious, so it’d be a win-win for both of us.

Plus, no one would blame me, he’s a famous professional football player. The All-Pro Wide Receiver for the Chicago Vandals.

Unfortunately, he’s also the best friend to my sister’s soon to be husband. Yeah… sticky situation.

I wasn’t expecting to be paired up together for the beach wedding festivities. And I definitely wasn’t prepared to get stranded and find out Hudson Cole isn’t just a pretty face.

TRAILER



EXCERPT

I bang on the door for several minutes before a short woman opens it.
“Hello,” she greets me in a thick accent. “Can I help you?”
“Hi, is Maverick home?” I tap my foot, too agitated to keep still.
“He’s not available.”
I grind my teeth, losing patience fast. “Would you mind checking at least?”
She nervously glances over her shoulder. “He asked not to be disturbed.”
“It’s important,” I grit out. “I need five minutes, tops.”
“I’m sorry,” she says regretfully. “Come back later.”
“I’m not going anywhere until I talk to Maverick.”
I force my way into the foyer and dash up the stairs. The woman follows behind me, begging me to stop. I barge into the first bedroom, no Maverick. Second one, still no sign of my nemesis. The third, and bingo. I find the devil incarnate lying in bed.
The woman latches on to my arm. “Por favor, you must go,” she says breathlessly, trying to pull me out of the room.
“It’s fine, Maria,” Maverick says, rubbing his drowsy eyes. “You can go.”
The door closes with a definitive click. Now that I’m here, my mind is drawing a blank. Maverick swings his legs over the side of the bed. The sheet falls to his waist, exposing his smooth muscular chest. Thick veins bulge along his ripped arms, and those abs must be made of steel. Sleep-ruffled hair triples his appeal. He’s sexiness personified.
Focus, Cocoa!
So what, he has a hot body… he’s still a miscreant.
“Why didn’t you come to school?”
“No reason.” He shrugs.
“You selfish prick,” I snarl, outrage unfurling in my belly. “Mr. Barnes gave us until tomorrow to do our presentation, so—”
“You’re either brave or incredibly stupid to come here.”
My anger clouded my common sense. I’m in his bedroom, for God’s sake, and I highly doubt Maria will come to my rescue if I call out for help. I’m at his mercy.
“I’m not afraid of you,” I lie through my teeth.
“Yeah, you are,” he states matter-of-factly. “I’m adept at recognizing fear. Right now, you’re in fight-or-flight mode. Stay and I’ll gain the upper hand in seconds. I can do whatever I want to you”—his gaze slowly moves to the juncture of my thighs—“and you’d be powerless to stop me. Yet, running equals weakness, and that’s a shortcoming you’re too stubborn to show, even if it means self-preservation. It’s your downfall.”
He stands, revealing his glorious nudity. I inhale a sharp breath. My gaze zeros in on his defined V-line, then roams lower to his well-endowed cock. It curves to the right, a trait I didn’t notice during our scuffle at school a couple weeks ago. My nether region pulsates, betraying me, as usual.
“Like what you see?” He smirks, amusement in his tone. “You’re welcome to touch it.”
My face heats in embarrassment. “You better be in physics tomorrow at eight sharp.”
I turn, intent on making a dignified exit after being caught gawking at his dangling bits.
Maverick lunges at me and seizes my curly tresses in a painful hold. “Did you really think it’d be that easy?”

A famous drummer with time and money to burn.
A young artist on the cusp of international stardom.

Los Angeles is only supposed to be a pit stop—track drums for infamous metalcore outfit Bleeding Faith and move on. Until a beautiful, mysterious woman gives him a good reason to stick around.

Up-and-coming artist Drew Kadence made L.A. her home a few years ago. Almost no one knows she’s on the run from a violent past. But when handsome drummer Zander enters her life and rattles all her defenses, she can’t deny the fact that their chemistry is through the roof. Problem is, she’s not sure she’s ready to dive into a relationship. Especially since her divorce isn’t finalized yet.

The more Drew gets to know Zander, the more she’s attracted to him. But Zander’s simple gig unravels his old demons, and Drew’s demons are gaining on her. Now they both have to face their fears.

Will love give them the strength to do it together or will they each have to do it alone?

*Deliverance can be read as standalone, but for a more fulfilling experience and to better understand the world of The Deviant, it’s recommended to read Rapture first.

Author: Anna Bishop Barker
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: April 29, 2021


BLURB

The Perfect Hero – Book 1 of The Themis Series

Hired to follow a trail of blood, bodies, and madness, Logan Pressley and the Themis Group are looking for a killer. Not just a killer—The Slayer.

Logan is not looking for a woman. At 45 years old, he has had enough of humanity, and wants no part of the myth that people call love.

Starting a new life, Maggie Robertson is not looking for a hero. Hell, she’s not even looking for a watered-down version of one. Romance, she has found, is a wasted phenomenon for the young, and the days for being swept off her feet are long past.

Then there was that one-night stand. The night Logan and Maggie lost themselves in each other. In that single night, all the carefully laid rules were broken.

~~

Themis, the Titan goddess of justice. The purveyor of divine law and order.

The men and women of The Themis Group have a singular cause - to bring justice and closure to those who have lost hope.

But while they are united in mission, they all have their reasons for being with a private investigation firm that straddles the converging lines of crime scene science, traditional investigation, and mainstream law enforcement. Some do it for the thrill. Some do it for the satisfaction. Some do it because they are compelled.

But each member of the team is looking for something they will never find in the work they have chosen.

EXCERPT

She went back to studying her wine glass. “Well, after Mark was taken, I kind of went off the deep end a little.” She didn’t look at him. This was hard enough without seeing his face while she pushed through. “I became obsessed with protecting him, and part of that was falling down a rabbit hole of internet horror and bad guys.” She didn’t elaborate on how far she had fallen and how hard it had been to crawl out.
“You blamed yourself.” It wasn’t a question.
She met his eyes and the expression in them, the gentleness mixed with something she couldn’t exactly name, made the back of her eyes prickle.
“Yes.” she whispered.
It took a couple of minutes before she could resume, but when she felt she had command of her voice again, she continued. “Sam suggested that I turn what I was going through into something constructive. I was already pretty disillusioned with teaching.” She paused and considered her wording. “No, not disillusioned, exactly. I was burning out, though. And during my trip in the dark, I found I had a fascination with following trails and putting puzzle pieced together.” She grinned slightly and shrugged. “And I always had a girl crush on Clarice Starling.”
She had tried to lighten things with her last sentence. It didn’t work. He looked at some point over her shoulder and repeated her words. His voice was flat.
“Your trip in the dark.” He paused. “I had a trip in the dark.”
“Tell me.”






AUTHOR BIO

I was born in Kentucky and raised in Florida, so I am a southerner through and through. Since I was old enough to pick up a book, I have been a voracious reader. I wrote the usual poetry and short stories in high school, and I kept the dream of writing in the back of my heart until opportunity and encouragement helped me to realize that dream.

I live in Tampa with my kids, grandkids, dogs, various other livestock, and way more books than is strictly healthy.

Hot Romance.
Suspense.
Humor & heart.

Grown up stories for grown up people. This is what I write. There's food, music, dogs, the occasional geek reference, and quite possibly an inappropriate joke. There will likely be dead bodies as well.

Three random facts about me:
1. I was bitten by a shark when I was 14.
2. I have read War and Peace. (When I get to the afterlife, I am demanding that week of my life back. Sorry, Tolstoy.)
3. It is my sincere belief that any situation can be improved by eating some cheese.

My live philosophy is this - guard your inner peace and read dirty kissing books.

Synopsis: 

Poppy Anderson was nailing her sophomore year at Brighton University. She liked her classes, had the greatest best friend, and was finally ready to start dating again. Or she was … until her ex, Mike, transferred to Brighton and started exchanging long stares and inside jokes that Poppy thought he’d forgotten.

Paxton Lawson was long ago labeled ‘The Golden Boy.’ Starting quarterback and team captain at Brighton University, his future was brighter than the sun until a short path of indiscretions tarnished his name and potentially his future. When he learns that his sister’s best friend, Poppy, has backed herself into a corner and is facing as many doubts and uncertainties as he is, Paxton suggests the biggest ruse of the year: a fake relationship.

Writing the rules was supposed to make things clear, defined, and definite. Only, their relationship becomes increasingly complex as the lines are blurred, days become weeks, and kisses for show begin to feel like confessions.

Can lies lead to truths? And what happens when the rules they wrote begin to expire?

One lie,
Two hearts,
And fifteen years of friendship are about to be put to the ultimate test.

Writing the Rules is a complete standalone and can be read independently, but is book 6 in The Dating Playbook series.
