When tragedy strikes, Seth Stewart is forced to return home after the death of his beloved father.

When he collides with his first crush after his arrival, Seth wonders what possibly could have happened to Josefina Anders.

Josefina has hidden many secrets she is too ashamed to share with anyone, especially Seth.

"Ms. Clarke has done it again! She's cre­ated a lovable couple that readers will relate to and want to know."
~ InD'tale Ma­gazine





✿ Excerpt ✿


"Are you nervous, Mr. Stewart?" She smirked. Her eyes were beaming playfully.

"No, not at all." My pitch came off higher than I had expected, and I was upset with myself. I had to fix that. "I mean—" I cleared my throat. Two can play at this game, I thought. I squared my shoulders and sat up tall. "So, Josefina Anders, let me ask you some questions before I decide if I want to hire you."

Her brows lifted, most likely wondering if I was being serious or joking. Dropping her crossed leg, she pulled the chair closer to the table. Josie pulled a piece of paper out of an envelope that I hadn't seen a second ago, tucked away behind her back. She placed a resume on my desk. "Ask away."

"How long have you been a waitress?"

"As long as I can remember. I got hired right after high school." She pointed to her resume. "You can see that I've only worked at a few places, but I'm loyal and a good employee."

"You've been a waitress for a long time, Ms. Anders. Do you think you'll ever get sick of it?"

"Not if it means I get to see Mr. Stewart." Her lips curled wickedly.

"Do you wear thongs or granny panties?"

Josie's lips puckered, stopping herself from busting up. "Mostly thongs, but I'm not wearing anything under my skirt at the moment."

Holy shit! I was trying to make her blush, but this was backfiring. Ignoring her last words, though it was extremely difficult to do, since all I could do was envision her with her skirt off, I continued, "Do you like to be on top or bottom?"

"I will be in whatever position pleases Mr. Stewart. I'm very flexible."

Cooper
Corps Security #4
by
Harper Sloan





✾ Synopsis ✾


Do you take me seriously? Because I don't. I use my jokes and easygoing personality to hide the pain I've felt since he took his last breath. I'm adrift without my partner in crime, my best friend…my brother. I can taste the vengeance just within my grasp.

Until she barges into my life. Promising me happiness and a peace I've been craving for years. She is the sun to my darkness, the happy to my despair.

But she holds secrets. Just like I do. She holds hers close, where I just pray mine don't rock the walls we're trying to build.

Now I'm stuck at a crossroads between my desire for revenge and my craving for her and the life we could have together — and I have no idea which road I should travel.

All I know with crystal clear certainty is that the past has the power to destroy it all.

No cliffhanger. This book is not suitable for younger readers. There is strong language, adult situations, and some violence.

✿ My Review ✿





Love Cooper!

This series just keeps getting better!!!

This is Chelcie Avery and Asher Cooper's story. We met them in Beck: Chelcie works for Dee and Ash is Zeke Cooper's older brother. The book starts four months after the events of Beck and we find these characters grieving the dead of Coop. Chelcie regrets not telling Coop that she's pregnant with is child and Ash can't move on from losing his brother. While Ash tries to bring justice to his brother, they become close and fall in love, but neither one of them acts on their feelings.
Chelcie has yet to break the news to Ash about her pregnancy because she is afraid of his reaction. Ash sees Chelcie as his Sunshine, the light in the darkness that consumes him since he lost Coop.

Will Chelcie tell the truth to Ash? How will he react?


This is an amazing book, with an even more amazing story and characters!

Chelcie is a strong woman, that is trying to find her way while fighting for Ash and pregnant of his deceased brother. She is fierce and isn't afraid to say what she thinks and to fight for the man she loves.

Ash is in a dark place, trying to numb himself with alcohol and one night stands. When he realizes he has a chance at happiness with the woman he loves, he takes it. He joins the other men of the Corps Security series as one of the hottest Alpha I ever read!

The story is very sweet but also very sexy, with a few twists I did not expect. We see the evolution of the relationship between Ash and Chelcie. We also learn a lot about the Cooper brothers childhood and why Ash feels the way he does.


I love this series and can't wait to read Locke (he was amazing in Cooper)!!!

He's carried his anger for so long he isn't sure he can just turn it off, but when he is faced with protecting her and an unexpected desire to have her again, life gets a little more complicated.

Cage
Corps Security #2





✾ Synopsis ✾


Greg Cage was born to protect. While growing up, he was his mother and sister's shield against the world… until he failed. For the last decade, he has carried that guilt and need for vengeance around... until it was stripped from him. Now, with his best friend getting married and no longer needing his protection, he is even more lost, completely adrift, and desperate for some control. All he has ever known was how to protect: his family, his friends, and his country. Can he go against everything he has ever known, and give up that control?

Melissa Larson will never let anyone hold the reins in her life. She has been the rock in her family for more years than she can remember, and the fight to keep them together is her main priority right now. She has always been fiercely independent and proud. The last thing she will ever do is ask for someone else’s help. But when that choice is out of her control, forcing her to rely on others to save her and her family, and pick up the pieces that are left, will she be able to let someone else be her strength?

The second Greg locks eyes with Meli, he knows that she is someone he needs. Someone he craves. Meli knew the second she met Greg that he would be nothing but trouble and heartache. Her life takes an unexpected turn, and that bitch Fate is back to wreak more havoc on another member of the Corps family.

All hell breaks loose, leaving Greg no choice but to call in a favor. He hooks back up with his old friend Braxxon Breaker from the Breakneck MC. Together, they make sure that nothing threatens anyone Greg loves again.

Beck
Corps Security #3





✾ Synopsis ✾


Dee
I've always been good at wearing masks. Not letting anyone see the real me. I'm content being the happy-go-lucky best friend. The strong willed boss. The independent woman who doesn't need a man.

But the truth is I'm just as broken as the rest of you. I'm terrified that all it will take is one person to make all my carefully constructed walls crumble into fine dust. So I guard my heart with everything I have. Determined to never let anyone get close enough to hurt me again.

All is perfect until HE walks into my life. No... he doesn't just walk. He struts his good-looking, sex-oozing self right into my space and demands that I see HIM. Making me want what I know I can't have.

So I did the only thing I know how to do.
I run.
But he just won't let me go.

Beck
The second I see her, I know she will be mine. I see past the gorgeous smiles and heart-stopping laughter. I see HER. She doesn't want me to know her secrets or the past that haunts her, but I make it my mission to find out.

To make her mine.

She can run all she wants, but it will never be far enough to stop me from coming after her.
She's it for me and she knows it.
She's just too scared to admit it.

No cliffhanger, HEA, inter-connected standalones. This book is intended for a mature reading.

Locke
Corps Security #5





✾ Synopsis ✾


Darkness is the only thing I see. Ever since the day my life changed. The day that everything and everyone I held close to me ceased to exist. The day I lost it all and the demons of my past consumed my every waking moment.

I tried to keep others at arm's length. Tried not to let my darkness taint them. Ruin them. Harm them. And whether I want to admit it or not, as much as I wish I could keep them locked out, they refuse to leave. Refuse to let me suffer alone.

If I hadn't been so focused on keeping those demons from flying free, I wouldn't have missed how one perfect angel was able to sneak her way under my skin — refusing to let go. Making me want things I don't deserve.

She consumes me. Her beauty knows no end. The love she promises tempts me every time she's near. But that pure heart that makes her MY Emmy is the one thing I'm convinced I'll destroy if I ever let her close.

I'm a broken man. A broken man with too much darkness in his soul to ever let her light shine upon me. But even that doesn't stop me from craving her with every single breath in my body.

Unexpected Fate
Hope Town #1





✾ Synopsis ✾


Have you ever felt like you were living your life for a future that was predetermined? Like there was some bigger picture you just prayed you would someday see clearly? That picture has been crystal clear to me since I was old enough to recognize it for just what it was.

Or I should say recognize him for who he was.

I've loved Cohen Cage since I was a small child. He's been my everything for the last twenty-two years. I've loved him through every girlfriend he's ever brought home. Through his college years and then mine. I've loved him through two deployments. And ever since the day I told him how I felt, he's acted like I'm a stranger.

My name is Danielle Reid, and it's time for me to get my man.

Our future is an unexpected fate, and no matter what our parents, siblings, and friends say... it's going to be worth every second of the fight to make it happen.

Bleeding Love
Hope Town #2





✾ Synopsis ✾


(Stand alone)

I've loved once. I gave everything that I had to that love. Blindly believing that nothing could ever take that feeling away from me. Away from us. And when my little world of happiness was ripped from my fingers, I felt a loss that still haunts me to this day.

Now I use that lingering grief as a shield to keep my heart from loving again. It's that fear that keeps me from letting anyone, except my daughter, get close enough to make it hurt. To make my heart bleed when I inevitably lose again.

Until the day I met Liam Beckett and everything I thought I had protected myself from was shoved back in my face.

He's on a mission to prove to me that a love worth having is a love worth fighting for.

Jaded Hearts
Loaded Replay #1

Release Date: September/October 2015





✾ Synopsis ✾


Signing with Brighthouse Records was supposed to be everything we ever wanted — our better life. Our chance at everything we never had but always wanted. All our dreams would finally come true and we were on top of the world. It was our chance at the happiness we never had in life.

Our every desire was at our fingertips and the power of that feeling was all consuming. But then it took every dream we thought would come true and it slapped us in the face with the cold hard reality.

Dreams were just that... something that floated on the cusp of untouchable, taunting you with every graze of your fingertips before slipping even further away.

Happiness... that feeling is a joke.

In the end it became painfully obvious that each of us would always have each other, but we would forever be alone.
