✾ Synopsis ✾


She thinks he's an arrogant playboy.
He thinks she's an uptight prude.
But he's about to make her an offer she can't refuse.

Nicola Price used to have it all – a great career, the perfect boyfriend, an excessive shoe collection and an apartment in one of San Francisco's best neighborhoods. But when she gets knocked up and her asshat boyfriend leaves her high and dry, Nicola's perfectly crafted world comes tumbling down. And stays that way.

Now, Nicola is the proud single mom to a five-year old daughter and living a giant lie. She can barely afford their ghetto apartment and all the men she dates run when they hear she comes with a child. She's struggling and scared – and nowhere near where she thought she'd be at age thirty-one.

Her saving grace comes in the form of a tall, handsome and wealthy Scotsman Bram McGregor, the older brother of her friend Linden. Bram understands a thing or two about pride, so when tragic circumstances place Nicola at rock bottom, he offers them a place to live in the apartment complex he owns. It's pretty much the perfect deal, so as long as she doesn't mind living beside Bram, a man that, despite his generosity, seems to antagonize her at every turn.

But nothing in life is free and as Nicola gets her feet back on the ground, she discovers that the enigmatic playboy may end up costing her more than she thought.

She might just lose her heart.

Those McGregor brothers are nothing but trouble...

✿ Excerpt ✿


When reality starts to fade in a bit, I find myself being walked to the door of my apartment building, my arms draped over both Kayla and Steph. We go up the stairs and now I'm standing in front of my door, wobbling back and forth, trying my hardest to look as sober as possible.

Steph goes to knock on the door but it's already open. I guess we are being loud, giggling, in the hallway.

Bram looks at the three of us and my God is he a sight for sore eyes.

"We brought her home," Steph says, motioning with her hand for Bram to get out of the way, "your shift is over."

"No," I tell them as they shuffle me inside. "He can stay."

I know the three of them are exchanging a look over my head.

"I'll make sure she goes to bed," Bram explains. "No funny business, I swear."

"Pinky swear?" Steph says and I turn to see her holding out her pinky to him. "You know I don't break those."

Ugh, Steph and her damn pinky swears. She wouldn't even be married to Linden if it weren't for one.

But Bram does a pinky swear with her.

"No funny business," Steph warns him.

"Good thing I'm not funny!" I yell as I flop down on the couch. The room is beginning to spin.

"Nic, that was, like, five minutes ago," Steph says. She reaches over the couch and pats my head. "Do you want us to undress you because Bram's not allowed."

"No one undresses me but me!" I yell, throwing my fist up into the air.

"Have fun with her," Steph says to Bram. "And remember, she's untouchable. Don't make me make your brother punch you in the junk or something."

Bram makes a scoffing noise. "Last time he tried to do that, I got him back good. You just ask him what happened on January 16th, 2005 and why he'll never eat pudding again."

"I mean it," Steph threatens and I hear her and Kayla leave and the door closing.

I close my eyes too. Drift away for a moment. The spinning has stopped and there's a beautifully cool breeze wafting over my skin.

"I'm not supposed to touch you," Bram's gruff voice says and when I open my eyes, he's crouched in front of me, a lock of dark hair over his forehead. His face is shadowy in the dark, the only light now being from my bedroom behind him.

"That's okay," I mumble into the couch. "You can touch me. I say it's fine."

"How about I bring you something to sleep in? Do you have a favorite nightshirt? I always see you in that top that your nipples try and poke right through."

"No, not the nipple shirt."

He goes to get up. With a lazy hand, I grip his shirt. "Don't leave. I'm fine here."

"I can't imagine you being comfortable."

"I'm drunk. Everything is comfortable. Except I wish I had a cheeseburger. I would eat it and use it as a pillow. Or maybe use it as a pillow and then eat it."

"I see."

I raise my brow at him. "You just want to go through my underwear."

"Oh, I've already gone through your underwear."

"Lies."

"I wore them on my head and danced around your apartment."

"Did you really?" I ask, totally serious.

"Come on," he says grabbing my forearms. "If you want to sleep in your clothes, that's fine. But I'm bringing you to your own bed and taking off your shoes."

"Can you brush my teeth too? I need clean teeth." I let him pull me to my feet and I pitch to the left, heading right for the coffee table. But I'm in his arms, his capable arms, and he's holding me to him.

"You have capable arms."

"You have an exquisite arse," he responds and half leads me, half drags me out of the living area and into the bedroom.

"I like the way you say arse," I say with a giggle, exaggerating his accent. "I like the way you say everything."

"I'm glad, because I foresee a lot of arse talk in the future."

"Yeah, yeah." I try and swat him away. "All talk and no arse pinching."

✾ Synopsis ✾


My name is Rob Winters, aka, Jackass. Even to my closest friends.

I wasn't always so arrogant and condescending. It only took one night to change me — one point twenty-seven seconds, to be exact.

When tragedy struck, I promised myself, no matter what, unbreakable chains would lock my heart. If one veers too close or digs too deep, the cruel and mean bastard many hate is unleashed. My plan has succeeded for the past seven years. I've driven away a girlfriend and killed a few friendships along the way.

Then, just when the chains loosen around my heart, she walks into my life — or worse, the room next door. She strolls into my house with her bouncy brown curls and banging body, slithering herself through the smallest opening and making me crave the one thing I've denied myself these past years.

Her smell, her eyes, and her caring nature are everything I’m not worthy of enjoying. How long do I have to struggle with the demons that haunt me every night before the torture ends? Forever, I remind myself, but the links protecting my heart break each time Paige Kensington enters the room.

✿ Excerpt ✿


I place the package in the microwave and press the button. "I'm a little surprised you're missing your signature apparel this evening," Rob comments, and when I swivel around, he's leaned back in his chair, his fingers strumming along the table. This incredible sexual response comes over me, that he was admiring me going about doing a mundane task. The pleasure brings so much warmth through my veins, I wish he was mine and I could saunter over and straddle his lap. I ache to grind against the hardness I created, as his hands would find my ass.

Instead, I swallow the urge. "Oh, well, laundry day."

He nods, his eyes moving up my legs. "I'm not sure which one I prefer."

I laugh. "Really? Pajama pants with absurd expressions are your things?"

"Not usually, but on you they are." My breathing stops before sputtering back up. Our eyes meet and an unbearable inner excitement flows through me. The more I swim in the blues of his eyes, the more he spins me in his web of magnetism. Just as I'm about to ignore my mind's resistance, I jolt from the beep of the microwave and quickly spin on my heels. Grabbing the bag, I toss it back and forth in my hands because it's so hot.

Rob laughs behind me and then the chair legs scrape along the floor and his footsteps thump behind me. "Let me help you." He relieves the burn in my hands, opening the two corners. Steam rushes out of the bag and I grab a bowl to pour it into. We accomplish the menial job together as a team. He's about to retreat back to the table, when he stops, leaning forward. "I like that I give you that reaction." He whispers and I lick my lips out of reflex.

"Keep doing that and I won't stand a chance in keeping my distance from you."

"What if I don«t want you to?" The words slip out of my mouth before I can filter them.

"Hmm..." He places the bowl on the counter and then nears closer, gripping the counter on either side. "Believe me, Paige, you do." My heart stammers and the edge of the counter digs into my palm.

Then he backs away and goes back to the table, leaving me mute stricken and frozen in place.

✾ Synopsis ✾


We first met Lauren in Rockstar's Temptation, where she wasn't the best sister to Maisy and tried to come between her and the man she loved.

Lauren doesn't know why she is such a bitch, but she is. There is no use denying it or hiding it. She believes in being who you are and fuck those who don't like it. That also results in her not having many friends, if any, and not much family left. Even her boyfriend doesn't want her anymore – well, he actually caught her in bed with his two friends and kicked her out. Her ex is pissed, and she soon realises the hard way that she never should have betrayed him. Yet, pretty-boy Andrew isn't as innocent as she thought. In fact, it turns out he's connected to one of the biggest gangs in America.

Lauren is beaten and abused in every way possible. Her human rights are stripped, and she is treated like an animal. Blindfolded and gagged, Lauren has no idea what is going to become of her, or if she will ever get out of the mess she has found herself in.

Karma has finally caught up with Lauren Ashford, but is this the end, or can someone out there help her? Are there men strong enough, or even brave enough, to face up to her captors?
When the toughest drug lords from Philadelphia come crashing into her kidnappers' motorcycle club's cabin, they find a beautiful girl chained up to a wall and made to live like a dog on the hard floor. She's not the only one, though: beside Lauren, there are two other girls. Even these hard criminals can see that this isn't right. In their world, women are treated with respect.

From here, Lauren is given the greatest gift. To go home. Once back in the UK, Lauren is under the protection of the UK Kings of Rebellion crew and is shocked to find that even though they are dangerous, they treat her so much better. One of these men is Brandon, the oldest son and next in line to take over the family business. Is this the man that Lauren needs? Or do her old habits of being a "do now, think later" kind of bitch, come back to bite her in the ass?

One thing is for certain, the president of the motorcycle club, who took her, wants her back...

✿ Excerpt ✿


Demon throws the door open, shoving me inside and locking it behind us. He slowly strolls into the middle of the room, his large frame is very intimidating and no, I can't ignore the fact that he is sexy but that doesn't change who he is. "You're lucky that it was me who found you."

I look around the room, happy to see that there's not as many guns on the desk than last time. "How so?" I ask.

I see the annoyance flash on his face. "Because if it was any of those other men out there, you would be naked, hung up and being raped repeatedly right now."

My eyes widen from the shock of his words and he nods. "And you're better?" I dare to ask.

A devilish grin appears across his face. "No, I'm not saying that but you need to watch how you speak to me." I nod in answer. "Now sit on the sofa."

I hesitate for a second but when I see the warning on Demon's face, just daring me to disobey, I decide to take a seat. Demon quickly follows, standing over me. "How are you liking your new life with the Devil's?" I'm shocked by his question, obviously I can't say how much I hate it so I nod my head and smile. This makes him laugh down at me. "I think it's time to give you your name."

"I have a name." I point out.

"Lauren?" He asks and I shouldn't be shocked. He is Andrew's uncle after all. "No, I don't like that." He reaches for my hair and swirls it around his finger. "I love your shiny black hair, makes me want to pull it as I fuck you from behind." I gulp at his words. "That's what I'll call you."

"What?" I'm confused. "Black hair?"

Demons laughs loudly. "No! Your name is Raven." He rakes his big hands through my hair, it feels so good and I hate the fact that I close my eyes and savour it. "See Raven, I think you could really enjoy life here. You just need to relax." He crouches down in front of me. "If you let the club look after you and let me take care of all your needs, you will have such a happier life."

A happier life? Is this guy for real?

I don't think this place is capable of providing a happy life for anyone, except maybe the members. Demon opens my legs and of course I do nothing to stop him. When he sees that I am naked under the skirt that was provided by Tracy, he smiles along with a groan. "See, you're perfect."
