Sometimes in life you are forced to do things you may not agree with.

Family meant everything to Jude Calvert.

He would do whatever it took to keep them safe and provide for them no matter what it took to make that happen.

Even if that meant putting his own safety at risk, he had no other choice.

Callie Raine has always felt a heavy attraction toward Jude.

He was fascinating.

He was undeniable.

She knew there was so much more to him than he allowed anyone to see. But she was a headstrong woman and feeling weak was something she wouldn't allow.

Except when it came to Jude.

However, when Jude is hit with the unexpected and forced to rely on others, Callie realizes he doesn't take weakness easily.

He becomes even more withdrawn.

More angry.

Will he finally give in and learn to lean on those who care?

Or will he push them beyond the point of no return and once again be left to face his obstacles alone?





















"I absolutely LOVED Jude and Callie's story! I had been dying for Jude's story from the beginning because he was so mysterious! CA hit this one out of the park! I also absolutely LOVED the extended epilogue and seeing where everyone else ends up." ~ 5 Star Review from Kristin - Book Lovers Obsession

"BOOM!!! What a great wrap up to my favorite CA series." ~ 5 Star Review from Nancy Metsch (Goodreads Review)

"Loved every bit of the story and this series as a whole was another win for C.A. Harms!" ~ 5 Star Review from Maria (Goodreads Review)









Undeniable is book four in the Key West series by C.A. Harms and it is Callie and Jude's story.




I loved Undeniable! ♡ ♡ ♡

Undeniable begins right where Uncontrollable ended: Jude is in the hospital after being beat up before a fight. Soon we learn why Jude is always bruised and why he doesn't let anyone in. Even his friends don't know everything about him, including Callie.
Callie always had a thing for Jude, but he always pushed her away. When Jude ends up in the hospital and needs help taking care of his family, she steps up and decides to fight for him.
Will Jude finally let Callie in or is she fighting for nothing?




Undeniable has a beautiful and emotional story. It took me in a rollercoaster ride of emotions and I couldn't stop reading.

Jude is a stubborn, pigheaded alpha male. He and his family have been through a lot. He is afraid that letting people in will only hurt his family, so he does is best to keep everyone away. I loved to see him grow and realize that, yes, letting people in can end in someone getting hurt, but also letting them in can be amazing.
Callie is a very sweet and kind woman, but also full of sass. Like Jude, she is stubborn and doesn't give up on him. I loved seeing her with the children and Kate.

I loved the epilogue and seeing how all the characters of the series are doing.

C.A. Harms wrote an amazing book, flawlessly written, with a fantastic story and incredible characters. Can't wait to read more!









"Hello." I froze as Jude's voice carried up the stairway, then jumped up from my position on the floor in our bedroom and scrambled for the door. Before I opened it, I turned back to face the kids, who were playing tug-of-war with the unnamed puppy.

"Stay here." They both nodded, and I slipped out of the room, closing the door behind me. Jude had just reached the top of the steps, and he looked up with a smile.

"Where are the kids?"

"They're playing in our room," I said as I approached him.

"What's wrong?" he asked.

"Nothing," I assured him as I continued to walk. He cocked an eyebrow at me, and my stomach dropped. He was seeing right through me. I was such a bad liar.

"The kids are busy. Wanna sneak downstairs and have a quickie?" I wagged my eyebrows, but his facial expression did not change in the slightest.

"Now I know you're full of shit. You're actually attempting to distract me with sex," he said with a grin. I was just about to argue when the puppy barked.

"What was that?" he asked.

"Uh..."

My stomach was flipping around anxiously, and I didn't even get to figure out a way to break the news before everything broke loose. The bedroom door came open behind me, and I heard the puppy's claws tapping against the hardwood floor as Zoey and Matthew followed him. Squealing and laughter filled the hallway as I remained locked in place. I avoided looking at Jude. In fact, I stared down the floor instead.

"Are those my boxers?" Jude asked, and I looked up. He was pointing at the puppy, who was sitting back on his butt looking up at Jude. Hanging from his mouth were a red pair of Jude's Calvin Klein boxers I had just purchased last week.

"Warrior likes to play tug-of-war with them," Matthew announced as he pulled on the other end of the red material.

"See, you just hook your hand through this handle, and he pulls back."

Matthew slipped his little hand through the front opening in the boxers.

"His name is not Warrior," Zoey argued.

"We still have to draw for his name, remember? Callie said so."

I could feel Jude's eyes boring in to me. I knew he was waiting for me to look up, but I was avoiding eye contact.

"What do you think we should name him, Uncle Jude?" Matthew asked.

"I like Warrior, but Zoey said Buddy or Charlie. I don't like those."

The kids began to argue over the name of our new puppy, and of course I continued to keep my head down as my heart raced with the idea that Jude may be angry.

"Callie," Jude said, and my stomach lurched. He didn't sound mad, yet he didn't sound happy, either. Silence set in, and I knew all eyes were on me. I took in a deep breath and closed my eyes tightly.

"I never should have let them convince me to go into the pet store, but before I knew what hit me, they were laughing and playing with this cute little guy."

I looked up and found Jude staring back at me, an unreadable expression on his face. "They ganged up on me, and they gave me that look. You know the one."

It was then I noticed the smile tugging at his lips. "Are you ever going to be able to tell them no?"

Jude asked as he stepped around the puppy. I shook my head. I knew the moment they turned on me and gave me those big, sad eyes, I was putty in their hands. I was unable to disappoint them.



































C.A. Harms is like any other addicted reader. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories. She hasn't always been a lover of Romance and had once been addicted to a good Mystery. Just recently she has taken on a new liking and now is a full blown Romance novel addict.

She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. You will always find her with her kindle or paperback in hand as it is her favorite pass time.

Fire and Ice #1

✾ Synopsis ✾


Billie Delphine has always been content standing in the sidelines while her identical twin sister, Blythe, gets all the attention, including a glamorous lifestyle with billionaire, Ethan Kheiron, who will do anything to wrestle back control of the family fortune from his younger brother, Heath.

But when Blythe disappears with Ethan while Billie is visiting her in New York, the last thing Billie wants is to be mistaken for her sister — or be falsely accused of a crime that Billie knows Blythe did not commit. So when Heath suggests they work together to find them, Billie agrees.

But a life of luxury cannot hide the years of unresolved differences between sisters, nor the decades of lies that have left the Kheiron family divided. And even as Billie slowly falls for Heath, she knows that until they all settle their differences, they're just pawns on someone else's game of power — where some of them are more expendable than others.

✿ Excerpt ✿


While Blythe is in the back room having her dress fitted to her measurements, I'm enjoying my second glass of wine when the front doors burst open, and a man strides in. He's dressed in an immaculately tailored suit that can't hide a broad chest and slim waist, his long strides emphasizing muscled thighs and long legs. He's like a Greek god with dark hair and piercing steel blue-gray eyes, a strong jaw and full lips, and the way he moves reminds me of a panther, smooth and stealthy. 
The wine has probably made me act bolder than I usually am, though when his gaze sweeps across the room and our eyes meet, my confidence falters. I look down into my glass, suddenly wishing I'm invisible, not that it helps, for he's seen me and now he's striding purposefully towards me.
 One of the employees, a young woman with a pixie hair cut that reminds me of Twiggy, meets him halfway. "May I help you, sir?"

"I'm here to speak to her," he says, pointing his finger at me. I look up at him, startled. Me?

Do I know him? I struggle to remember if I've seen him before, maybe someone Blythe introduced me to sometime between my arrival and right now, but I come up empty.


"I'm sorry, sir, but we're in the middle of a private event, and I'll have to ask you to leave," the young woman says, and just like that, I swear the temperature in the room turns cold as his gaze sweeps along the length of her.

"Obviously you're new. Do you know who I am?"
 Before she can answer, Alicia appears next to her, smiling sweetly.

"Mister Kheiron! I didn't expect to see you here today."

"Alicia, how are you?"

"I'm well, thank you for asking. I sincerely apologize for this young lady's manners. Amelie is new, you see, and isn't yet familiar with our regular clients. In fact, Blythe recommended her," Alicia says, before turning to face the young woman, who's just turned white as sheet.

"Shouldn't you be stocking inventory?"

As Amelie scurries to the back room, the man walks past Alicia and continues to make his way towards me. I set my wine glass on the coffee table and stand up. Based on mean he is, this must be the infamous Heath Kheiron. Then I wonder if we've overcharged the Gold Card by mistake. 
As he stops in front of me, I smell his cologne and my nostrils flare, the hairs at the back of my arms standing on end. Even my belly tightens. Citrusy with a hint of spice.


"Where is he?" he asks, his voice cold and deep.
I glance around, as if confirming that he is talking to me.

"Who?"

"Don't 'who' me," he says through gritted teeth as he draws closer.

"Where is Ethan?"

"I don't know," I stammer, confused and not understanding his anger.

"We're meeting him for dinner-"

"When you see him, tell him to call me," he says just as the realization hits me.

He thinks I'm Blythe! "No, wait! You're wrong! I'm not Blythe! I'm-"

"Yeah, right," he scoffs, grabbing my wrist, and this time his voice lowers as he addresses me.

"Tell Ethan to give back what he stole, or I'm making sure that everything will be taken away from him — his spending accounts, his access to company properties," he pauses, lifting an eyebrow as he looks at me.

"Even you, Blythe." The way he looks at me makes me wither inside. It's cold and demoralizing, like he's appraised me from behind his blue-gray eyes and I came up short.

"For your information, mister," I say as I yank my wrist away from him, "I am not a thing." Heath eyes me, as if surprised that I actually can speak, and then he chuckles, as if I just said something funny.

"You’re not a thing, is that it? You're not this thing for my brother to dress up and primp like some doll on display — like he's doing now?"


He bites his lower lip, and shakes his head, as if he's the one who's perplexed. But clearly, by the words that follow, he's not. "It’s time to wake up and smell the roses, dear Blythe, because as far as I'm concerned, that's exactly what you are to me — a thing. Now where is Ethan?"

This time, I'm too shocked to say anything back, but Alicia comes to my rescue.
 "I need you to leave, Mister Kheiron. This behavior is inexcusable.”"

"Don't worry. I'm done here, Alicia," Heath says before turning his attention back to me.

"Tell Ethan he's got till tomorrow to explain himself, or he’s going to end up with a bigger problem in his hands — and I believe you know what I'm talking about, Blythe. And tell him that once I notify the board of what's been happening, he'll have nothing to his name — nothing. Neither will you."

"Mister Kheiron!" Alicia's voice is shrill now and two men in dark suits seem to magically appear next to her.

"Good day, Alicia," Heath says, nodding his head curtly, before turning to address me, the bow of his head mocking me.

"And you, too, Blythe. Enjoy your shopping spree."

I can't even say anything back at him, not when the way he looks at me decimates me into someone who clearly is not worth anything in his eyes. I feel Alicia's hand rest on my arm as Heath turns away and walks out of the store. 
"I'm so sorry, dear," Alicia says.

"Are you alright?" I nod.

"I guess when tycoons have a bad day, they really do have a bad day, don't they?"
