✾ Synopsis ✾


Taz:

My life is finally perfect. My dreams have all come true. I'm where I want to be with the bureau; having the career I've been planning since I did my stint in the military. I'm married to the one and only woman I've ever loved; my heart beats for her alone. Together we've made beautiful babies that I adore. I'm thirty-three years old and I'm complete.

Then one day, it all changes. Slate recruits me for a temporary assignment that is underneath the radar for a reason. The bureau hasn't sanctioned it as a priority, but Slate feels it is because of who is involved: Sue Ellen Reynard. Yeah, remember her?


Lindsey:

Our lives were perfect. Taz and I had everything we'd ever hoped for: family, careers and an everlasting devotion to one another. Suddenly nothing is the same. In a single moment, my biggest fear is realized by one phone call from Slate: an 'agent is missing'.

My agent; my Taz...

This is just the beginning of our long journey. Will things ever be the same again?

✿ Excerpt ✿


I wiped my hands clean, tossed the towel into the trash and grabbed my wife's hand, pulling her behind me up the wide staircase to the second floor. Once there, outside of those closed french doors that had been my iron curtain for the past several weeks, I pushed them open, pulled her into the room with me, and then kicked them shut with one swift move.

I pulled her close, raising her shirt up and she didn't resist; but instead, raised her arms up so that I could pull it up and over her head. I unfastened her front closure bra, releasing her beautiful tits that I hadn't touched in months.

I lifted her up, and carried her over to the bed - our bed, gently placing her on her back, so that I could straddle her and begin feasting on her breasts.

She moaned beneath me with pleasure. I multitasked, sucking on a breast while I unfastened her jeans, before raising myself back up so that she could shimmy out of them. I pulled my shirt up and over my head, and then quickly unfastened my jeans, shedding them along with my boxers in one swift movement.

I lowered myself back over her, my mouth finding hers. I slowed my pace. I sure as hell didn't want to come before my dick was even inside of her, but I swear to God, I knew I wouldn't last long. I kissed her softly, playfully, as my teeth gently nipped at her bottom lip.

Our tongues interlaced, and her arms wrapped around me tightly, pulling my face and upper body even closer to her. I was consumed by her scent, her softness, her sweetness - all of it. She was mine to claim and holy fuck if I wasn't going to! Nothing - I repeat -nothing was going to keep me from sinking my cock into her sweet pussy and showing her that she was mine - now and always.

And then we heard it.

At the same time.

Fuuckk!

From the room down the hall, Jackson was crying. And it wasn't just a fussy or whiney cry that would likely stop so that he could return promptly to sleep.

Hell no!

It was a loud-ass wailing, followed by a high-pitched shriek of "Mommeee!"

Over and over.

Seriously dude?

Lindsey squirmed underneath me, pushing against my chest.

"I'll get him, babe," I said, getting up.

"No," she said gently, giving me a quick kiss on the lips. "It's okay, Taz. He's calling for me. I'll get him."

She launched herself out of our bed, and quickly went to the closet, pulling on her white terry cloth robe, making a quick exit so that she could tend to our son.

The little cockblocker.

I made a mental note to ground his ass just as soon as he was old enough to understand the whole concept.

I swear.

✿ The Author ✿


I was born and raised in southern Ohio, and with the exception of a brief stint in Dallas, TX, have been an Ohioan most of my life. My dream has always been to write a novel, and back in the early eighties I tried to do just that, having been influenced by authors such as Kathleen Woodiwiss, Johanna Lindsey, Rosemary Rogers and Laurie McBain. I remember writing to all of them through their listed publishers, and the only response I received was from Johanna Lindsey (who lived in Hawaii at the time.

Ms. Lindsey advised me to continue with my dream; and to submit to various publishers again and again. Of course, at that time, publishing e-books yourself was not on the horizon; there were vanity publishing houses of course, but she advised me to avoid those.

So my dream was put on the back-burner for more than 25 years until June of 2012 when suddenly I no longer had a reason not to write a novel. My sons were grown; I found myself without a career (blessedly) and the creative juices flowed once again.

I finished my first novel, "Maybe Baby" in September of 2012; the next two books in the "Baby Series" titled "Baby Love" and "Be My Baby" were published in early 2013. I learned a lot in my first endeavor with self-publishing. I've made so many friends as a result that it is over-whelming.

In the spring of 2013, I had an idea for a different type of Alpha, and wrote Book #1 of the "G-Man" Series, titled "Diamond Girl." This book was well-received, and I followed it with Book #2, "Love Plus One." These are stand-alone books.

I am finally doing what I love and I sincerely appreciate the wonderful readers who provide feedback and take the time to comment. I hope that with each book, my writing has grown and improved as I strive to publish quality fiction..

✿ Excerpt ✿


I don't want to lose you

Ray grabs my wrists and pins them to the mat over my head, his body angled over me. My breath catches in my throat, and I steel myself for the memories, the black rush, the heart-pounding fear, but it doesn't come. Instead, a red haze settles over my vision, and I press my lips together and buck my hips, throwing him slightly forward.

Bad plan. Now his groin is only inches away from my face. He's still wearing his jeans, which means that bulge isn't a cup.

"Ray..." 
His face softens. "I hurt you."

"Yes, you hurt me. Keeping secrets hurts me. It makes me feel like you don't respect me. And it makes me feel like I can't trust you. So maybe you could return to your proper seat now. Tray table up."

He shifts down, settling his weight over my hips, but he doesn't release my hands. "I hurt you. Means you care."

I swallow hard and meet his gaze. "You hurting me means I was being stupid. Things were going where I didn't want them to go. Now I've had a wake-up call. You have secrets you can't share. You need to protect your secrets. I need to be with someone I can trust, and I need to stand on my own two feet. It's just not going to work between us."

His gaze darkens, searing me to the core. "You want to be done? Or are you scared and trying to push me away?"

The air shifts between us, electrifying, tightening my nipples and heating my blood. I am hyperaware of his thighs tucked against my hips, carrying most of his weight as he sits astride me in a dominant MMA position. My wrists, hot under his palms, press against the cool mat, restrained in a way I could never have imagined allowing them to be restrained. My chest rises and falls twice for every one of Ray's breaths, and my core tightens. The innuendo isn't lost on me. God, yes. I want to be done in the carnal sense of the word. But only by Ray. And I don't really want to let him go.

"I don't want to lose you."

Ray's hands tighten on my wrists, and he leans down and brushes a kiss over my lips. "I don't want to lose you either, but I live in a dangerous world. I've got stuff in my life that would make your head spin. I need to protect you from that, and I'll do what it takes to keep you safe, even if it means you hate me for it, because for the first time in my life, I want something more than doing my duty. I want a life and I want you in it. I've got one bad guy to catch and then I'm free. And after I'm done and after what went down this evening, you'll never have to worry about being safe again."

Finally, he releases my hands but I don't move. Heat sweeps through my belly. I feel both vulnerable and curiously safe lying beneath him. My gaze shifts from his intense gaze to his sensual lips, and my breasts swell, remembering the touch of his hands, the gentle press of his lips. He wants me. Not just today, but tomorrow and the tomorrow after that.

"You make it sound like I don't have a choice about being with you."

"You don't." He leans down and kisses me with a savage fierceness that takes my breath away.

Bitter Sweet Love
The Dark Elements #0.5





✾ Synopsis ✾


In a sizzling prequel novella to her new series The Dark Elements, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout draws readers into the extraordinary, irresistible world of Wardens and demons.

Dez wasn't just Jasmine's crush. A gargoyle Warden like Jas, he helped her come to terms with her destiny — fending off demons and maintaining the balance between good and evil. He was her everything... right until the moment he disappeared without a trace. It didn't help that Jas's father had just announced that she and Dez would one day be mated. Hard not to take that personally.

And now he's back, three years older, ten times hotter, ready to pick up exactly where they left off. But Jas isn't taking that risk again. Dez has seven days to meet all her conditions and earn back her trust. Seven days filled with terrifying danger and sweet temptation. Seven days to win her heart — or shatter it all over again...


"With her signature flare for combining humor, romance and action, Armentrout weaves a fast-paced read that will have readers' hearts racing in more ways than one. Like Armentrout's previous heroines, Jasmine is fun and full of attitude, while Dez is as snarky as he is sexy. This is a must read for new and old fans alike!" -RT Book Reviews

White Hot Kiss
The Dark Elements #1





✾ Synopsis ✾


One kiss could be the last.

Seventeen-year-old Layla just wants to be normal. But with a kiss that kills anything with a soul, she's anything but normal. Half demon, half gargoyle, Layla has abilities no one else possesses.

Raised among the Wardens — a race of gargoyles tasked with hunting demons and keeping humanity safe — Layla tries to fit in, but that means hiding her own dark side from those she loves the most. Especially Zayne, the swoon-worthy, incredibly gorgeous and completely off-limits Warden she's crushed on since forever.

Then she meets Roth — a tattooed, sinfully hot demon who claims to know all her secrets. Layla knows she should stay away, but she's not sure she wants to — especially when that whole no-kissing thing isn't an issue, considering Roth has no soul.

But when Layla discovers she's the reason for the violent demon uprising, trusting Roth could not only ruin her chances with Zayne... it could brand her a traitor to her family. Worse yet, it could become a one-way ticket to the end of the world.

Every touch has its price

Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life — no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who's pretty sure things can't get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.

But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla's powers begin to evolve, and she's offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden. Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She's finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay...

Release Date: APRIL 21, 2015





✾ Synopsis ✾


It's all fun and games... until someone's heart is broken.

They're not kids anymore, but Milo Caro is certain that Colton Mathews will only see her as his best friend's little sister for the rest of their lives. After all, he made that clear the night before she left for college. But four years later, her brother is getting married and Colt's the best man — and guess who is the best man's last-minute date?

Milo vows to use the wedding to either claim the smoldering firefighter's heart or douse this torch for good. When Max — her best friend from college, who may be carrying a torch of his own — crashes the party, they devise a plan to make Colt see what he's missing. But after Colt catches on, he decides to cook up his own revenge.

Now it's personal. Colt and Milo are at war, and between Max's questionable acting methods, an unfortunate trip to jail, and a maniacal fiancée, what could possibly go right?

Summer 2009

"I can't believe you're really going to college, Milo." Colton's teasing smile flashed right in front of me, rendering me temporarily blind. Man, he was beautiful. His normally dark-brown hair had shots of gold from the summer sun. Dimples peeked out from his mega-white smile and I was pretty confident that I saw a twinkle in his green eyes meant just for me. He'd been home for two months since graduation and was already off saving the world one fire at a time. I watched his full lips curve around the mouth of his Corona. He and my brother Jason had organized a going-away party for me. Apparently me getting accepted into NYU was a big deal: they'd even gone so far as to get a Star Wars–themed cake from Dairy Queen and a princess tiara that said "Pretty" across it. It was always their joke with me. I was a complete and total tomboy — I loved picking fights and getting muddy — yet still demanded they treat me like a princess.

With a sigh I leaned back on the picnic blanket and looked up at the stars. My crown fell to the side of my head, causing my hair to fall all over my face. The party had been over for a few hours, leaving me, Colt, and Jason. I should have been happy: after all, who does that for their little sister? What brother would even care? Furthermore, the fact that it had all been Colt's idea, someone who wasn't even family, was huge. But... maybe that's the part that left me feeling empty. I might as well be family to Colton. I was the little sister he'd never had — and secretly, I'd always wanted to be so much more.

"Aw, you messed up your hair," Colton teased, lifting the crown with the tip of his finger and giving me a sexy wink.

"Whatever shall I do?" I huffed.

"I'll save you." His voice was just above a whisper. "I've always wanted to save a princess."

"You did." My grin was huge. "You saved me a least a hundred times when we were little — slew the dragon at the top of the stairs and did it all without getting a scratch."

"Messy job." He let out a long, exaggerated sigh. "I don't know how I made it to my twenty-first birthday without getting singed."

"Donald didn't breathe fire. He was a fireless dragon, remember?"

"Oh, right." His eyes twinkled. "How is the old dragon anyway?"

I shrugged and chewed on my lower lip. "Haven't been in the attic since you guys left for school. I've been busy."

"Too busy to play?"

I rolled my eyes. "Too busy graduating to play, yeah."

"Where's the fun in that?"

"Fun." I snorted. "The last time I had fun was when we snuck into your parents' pool and—" I clamped my mouth shut before the words could tumble out on their own. Crap. Crap. Crap.

"Skinny-dipped." He finished my thought. "Yeah, that was a blast."

"Hey, guys!" Jason called as he ran out of the house. "Dad needs me to grab Mom from work so I'll be right back! Don't do anything fun without me! I mean it!"

The loud roar from his truck drowned out our conversation for a brief second and then slowly dissipated as the vehicle barreled down the driveway.

"You thinking what I'm thinking?" Colton asked.

If his thoughts were along the line of finally getting him alone, away from my brother? "Absolutely." I grinned as he grabbed my hand and helped me off the blanket.

"Come on. Let's go have fun."

Curious, I followed Colt as we ran through a few backyards and finally ended up at his house.

"What are we doing?" I asked in a hushed voice.

"Having fun." I swear his grin made my heart almost stop. "Now strip, Milo, we don't have all night and Jason's going to be pissed he isn't with us."

Laughing, I took off my shirt and shorts — I'd spent years swimming with the guys in my sports bra and underwear, though as we got older it became weird, but only on my end. It felt strange to strip down to nothing, knowing that my feelings for Colton were very real whereas his were nonexistent. I mean, it was Colton. Sure, I had a crush on him, but he never, ever thought of me that way. Ever.

"Last one in's a rotten—"

I didn't hear him finish — but I did beat him into the water. His mom and stepdad's pool was always my favorite place to swim. It had a little waterfall in the deep end that you could swim under that always made me think of fairy tales and the movies. Then again, that could be because every time I broke through the water it was Colton's face I saw, and his smile that drew me. He was my own personal Prince Charming.

Laughing, Colton splashed around, then hauled himself out of the pool and did a cannonball right by my face. I was glad that it was dark — I must have been beet-red. Man, the guy was ripped.

"Wanna race?" he asked, out of breath.

"Wanna lose?" I countered.

"Never."

"Um, it's an everyday occurrence." I swam over to the edge. "Ready, set—"

"—go!" He ran instead of swam and then dove under water.

Bastard! Arms burning, I tried to make it to the other end of the pool. I usually didn't open my eyes under water, but this time I did to see where I was going.

His body was a blur in front of me. All I saw was hard-lined muscle.

I stopped right in front of him and jumped to the surface. "You cheated."

"I like to call it winning." He beamed triumphantly.

"Cheating." My teeth ground together as I pushed against his chest. Laughing, he fell backward, pulling me with him. Our bodies ground together, heat against heat, skin against skin.

And suddenly sneaking away from Jason wasn't funny anymore.

Neither of us was laughing.

His hands moved from my waist slowly up my body until they rested on my face. With a curse he pulled my head toward his. "We should..."

"Yeah," I whispered.

Neither of us pulled away.

His lips brushed mine, just enough to make me strain toward him—I needed him like I needed air.

"Kids!" His stepdad's voice rang through the night air. "You out here making noise?"

Colton pushed me away and I nearly hit my head on the waterfall rocks.

"Yeah, just... hanging out!" Colton called. "I'm with Jason's sister."

I froze. He'd never called me that before. He even said it in such a final way, as if that was all I would ever be. Period. My heart didn't just sink... it shuddered, then combusted, as all the hopes I'd harbored since I was thirteen came to a crushing world-altering halt. My suspicions were finally confirmed. Out loud. On the day the boy I liked had thought enough to throw me a party.

The line had been drawn. And I might as well be on the other side of the universe.

That was the day I lost Colton Mathews — forever.
