BLURB

It was just a one-night stand.

He was supposed to be my last hurrah. A handsome stranger to get lost in before I started working for the man who’d always controlled my life.
No feelings. No attachments. Nothing but a few drinks, a spin around the dance floor, and a couple hours of passion.
But a case of mistaken identity ruined all that. Now I couldn’t get rid of him, even if I wanted to, and that put his life on the line.

She was a game changer. One night with her, and everything I thought I wanted was turned on its head.
Convincing her to give me a chance was only the beginning. There were bigger things at play, some so dangerous it threatened our lives.
But I was determined to make it work. To have her in my life. The only problem was, someone else was dead set on cutting our time together short.

EXCERPT

“Look,” she told me, facing her desk and shuffling through some papers there, “I made you no promises. There's a reason I didn't ask for your name. I never wanted anything but a night of fun.” She turned back to me, her eyes hard and her face a blank mask.
“We can still have some fun,” I offered. I stepped close, sliding one hand around to the small of her back and one behind her head. I pulled her close and pressed my lips tight against hers. There was no warmth, no passion, just a few brief seconds of contact.
Without warning, Frankie pulled back and slapped my face. I never expected a woman of her size to be able to pack such a punch. My face was on fire and stars flashed behind my eyelids. I held my hand to my cheek, letting the relative cool of my palm calm the burning in my skin.
When my vision cleared, I pulled my face back up to look at her. The blank mask of her face twitched once, right beneath her darkened eyes. As fast as she slapped me, she lunged at me. Her arms went around my neck, hands fisted in my hair, legs wrapped tight around my waist. And her lips, sweet lord her lips, were crushing down on mine.
It took me a second to react, and by then her tongue was in my mouth. I greeted her greedily and grasped her ass in my hands. She squeezed her thighs, lifting herself like she did in her hotel room as I’d fucked her against the wall, and I slid my hands up her back, untucking her shirt and touching her silky skin. I grabbed her nape and held her face to mine, keeping our lips locked, our tongues tangling together.
Frankie froze, the warmth draining out of her faster than water down a wide-open drain. She dropped her legs and slid out of my grasp. Pushing away from me, she turned to face her desk before spinning back to me.
“Get out of my office.” Her voice was ice in my veins, her face red like the rage emanating from her every pore.
“Frankie—”
“Out!” She pointed to the door, staring me down as I tried to understand, tried to wrap my head around the rapid shift in her attitude.
I adjusted my aching cock in my pants, then strode quickly to the door. With my hand on the handle, one foot in and one foot out, I stopped and glanced back at her. At Frankie. The angel. The goddess.
With the taste of her tongue on mine, I opened my mouth to speak. But there was nothing there, no words I could think to say to make her let me back in.

Release Date: March 9, 2021


BLURB

Sebastian

You always remember your first love. You also never forget the day she left.

Moving on from losing Haven was hard, but I was young, with my whole life ahead of me. A life that saw a marriage, the birth of my daughter, and then a divorce. Co-parenting isn’t easy, but not much in life is, right? I have a job I love as a high school math teacher and football coach, and raising Chloe keeps me plenty busy. Life is good. I’m content. Settled. Predictable.

Until one day, I look up and come face to face with the one that got away. Haven Decker.


Haven

You always remember the day you break your own heart. You also never forget the man you left behind.

I was young and thought I needed more than life in the small town I grew up in. I walked away from the love of my life for a chance at a career most only ever dream of. I focused on putting one foot in front of the other, creating a life I thought I wanted. It turns out the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. When an injury and a cheating boyfriend bring my world to a halt, one phone call has me packing up and heading back to the one place I never thought I would return to.

I knew I would run into him, but I don’t know if I’m ready to face him. Sebastian Hall.

Redwood Rebels Book 3!

My mind hates what my body craves.


I have a secret.
A deep and painful secret that has been feasting on my insides.
Clawing at my heart and lacerating it in a slow and painful agony.

If Wyatt thinks that he can just walk into my life and rattle things up,
he's got another thing coming.

He's nothing to me.
Scum.
Dirt.
As good as dead.

You see, I have a secret, but so does he.
It's my turn to get my revenge,
and I can already taste the sweetness on the tip of my tongue.
No questions asked.
My secret stays mine.

His, however, is about to go up in flames.
I'll love nothing more than to watch him burn.

He better look out,
because this vandal is about to paint his world blood red.

Vandal is an MM romance with hate speech and content that may be uncomfortable for some readers. While each book in the series ends with an HEA, this is NOT a standalone and the series must be read in order. Start the series with Striker: A Dark Bully Romance.

Release Blitz: Hidden Loyalty by Diane Benefiel

 

 

U.S. Marshal Seth Jameson's relationship with one of his colleagues is fraught with the kind of emotional tension that is forbidden in the Marshals Service, but he can't seem to find a way around his heart.

Hidden Loyalty by Diane Benefiel is now live!

Chief Deputy US Marshal Seth Jameson has mastered the art of hiding his emotions. Some might call the skill a survival technique. He calls it smart. He doesn't need anything that could trip him up and jeopardize the most important operation of his career.

Seth has managed to keep his attraction to Deputy Marshal Bella Nikolaev well hidden, but posing as an engaged couple while undercover blows his control to shreds.

Bella Nikolaev doesn't trust anyone since she's learned the people closest to you let you down. Case in point? She's in love with her boss, the oh-so-hot Seth Jameson, and the one time she allows herself to believe in him, he proves that showing vulnerability is a big mistake. The problem is, the consequences of that one time can't be ignored.

On a mission to find the kidnapped son of a federal judge, which would bring the fugitive Richard Jameson to justice, Bella and Seth are once again thrown together and are losing the battle of their hearts. In a situation where one wrong move can mean death, they have to depend on each other to survive in more ways than one.

Meet Diane


An avid reader for as long as she can remember, Diane has always favored stories with strong female characters who went on adventures and could think themselves out of the most dangerous situations. It's no surprise that those are the kinds of books she enjoys writing.

Diane loves the outdoors and reflects this passion in her books. Born and raised in southern California, family vacations invariably meant camping in locations ranging from Big Sur to Death Valley. Her debut novel is set in a fictional town in one of her favorite areas, the eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains. Her love of travel took her to Sweden as an exchange student when she was sixteen and backpacking around Great Britain (after a week in Paris) while in college. Taking the kids on a cross country road trip would have turned out better if the last Harry Potter novel hadn't just been released. They remember Harry searching for horcruxes more than camping in a cornfield in Illinois.

When not writing exciting tales of women in danger, Diane spends her time at her day job (teaching US History), gardening, and bugging her husband to finish the house remodel. She is a member of the Romance Writers of America.

To say I have little trust in men is an understatement. After I caught my husband cheating with his secretary and he ended our marriage, I swore never to be blinded by love again. I’ve noticed Royce around for over a year now, and can’t deny the hot rush of heat I feel whenever our gazes meet. Still, I don’t trust myself enough to allow it to be more than a casual flirtation. We may both be headed to a bachelor/bachelorette party in Las Vegas, but I’m completely confident I can keep my libido in check. I mean, what’s the worst that could happen?

Royce
Drinks were flowing as we celebrated my sister and her fianc√©’s upcoming wedding. Next thing I know, I’m waking up in bed with Anna Mae and it seems we did a whole lot more than spend the night together. Our drunken selves found a cute little chapel and tied the knot. Anna is understandably upset, but I see this as an opportunity with a beautiful woman I genuinely care for. Can I convince her to take a gamble on our happily ever after? Or once we are back in Rock Springs will we roll snake eyes on what could have been a beautiful future?

Come meet the small town of Rock Springs Texas with a family that has your back, a town that knows your business, and men who love with everything they have.


This is a Steamy, Small Town, Vegas Wedding Cowboy Romance. No Cliffhangers.
This is Book 8 in the Rock Springs Texas Series.

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Until I brought my fake girlfriend home.

When I took a seat next to the gorgeous brunette at the blackjack table, I had no idea it would be the start of the hottest weekend of my life. By day, Stevie and I dominate the casinos of Sin City.

By night, I dominate her in my penthouse suite.

Then my brother Samuel ruins it by asking me to come home for his engagement party.

Because he’s not just getting married. This isn’t a normal celebration for me. His future bride is my ‘one who got away.’ The girl I may or may not still be in love with.

The catch? He wants me to prove I’m over his fianc√©e before they set a date. So I ask Stevie to double down on our chemistry and pretend to be my girlfriend.

We set our ground rules: lots of sex, plenty of pretend smiles, and no strings.

But we’re not only gambling with the truth. We’re gambling with our hearts.

They say every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future. But Stevie’s past may force us to fold on our future before it’s even begun.
