Cover model: Josh Kloss
Cover design: Caylee Rae Photography
Release Date: December 27, 2016

Synopsis

No ties.
No expectations.
No risks.

Antonio Giovanni, a fifth-generation winemaker in the rolling hills of Tuscany, is the epitome of temptation. Tall, dark, and handsome with an accent sexy enough to leave a trail of women’s panties in his wake. The man wears charisma like a fine silk suit…flawless and molded to perfection in all the right places, leaving just enough mystery to make you wonder what lies beneath the faultless exterior.

Hope Tidwell, a world-renowned sommelier, is a strong independent woman who fights to have control over every aspect of her life. She makes her own money, her own decisions, her own happiness, and her own mistakes. Her existence doesn’t need to be validated by a man; she refuses to ask for anything except an orgasm, and even those she can manage on her own.

Relationships for most people are as natural as breathing. However, Hope and Antonio are two players who master the art of seduction and the fear of emotional intimacy. When tragedy strikes close to her heart, Hope is fated to do the one thing that terrifies her most.

Destiny reveals the biggest gifts often require the greatest sacrifices.

REVIEW

Hope and Antonio, OMG..... I know we all had our mixed feeling about him in Tracy book but oh be steal my heart. Yes please to "The Italian" it all makes sense but not before you are a bubbering mess at 4 a.m. with nowhere to turn. Hope section of this story is some on Beverly's finest work and I am very partial to JC story. This one however touches you on a different level of family and emotions. I just don't know where to begin on the deep rooted anguish and empathy in which I felt page after page.

If you have NOT met The Mathews family please start and get to know Americas power family and their journey with friends, fears, love, lost, and second chances.

ALFA Private Investigations is a spin-off of the Men of Inked series, but can be read separately.
**Includes a BONUS novella - Men of Inked Christmas**

There's only one thing worse than dating a friend's sister sleeping with his mother.

Fran DeLuca's known for her bossy, overbearing personality almost as much as for her love of nylon tracksuits. But when someone runs off with fifty thousand dollars, she becomes involved in an ALFA investigation and catches the eye of silver fox biker, Bear.

Bear North, ALFA's resident bad boy, has never thought of Fran as anything more than his buddy's mom. When she trades in her elastic pants and orthopedic tennis shoes for a pair of skintight jeans and high heels, he takes notice of the fifty-something MILF.

When the money trail leads closer to Fran than expected, Bear takes charge of the investigation and will do anything to protect her. Can Bear track a thief, claim Fran, and keep Morgan DeLuca in the dark long enough to solve the case?

Wicked Impulse is book 3 in the ALFA PI series and includes a BONUS novella - Men of Inked Christmas.

REVIEW 

I would be one to admit it took me a while to warm up to this spin-off series. I have to amend my liking because for some reason Bear and Fran fit. I felt a deeper connection with the plot than what was on the surface. On one hand you had a known badass that you only knew because he beat ass and drank a beer like it was just an everyday thing but truly Bear is an onion. He had many layers that only Fran and City were privy to. I found those layers were the best. They defined the man not the animal inside.

Fran brought peace to a busy mind and life. Brought closure to a broken soul. In turn he brought her spunk out of capitivity with Maria help but also helped mend a weird bad past for her as well as Morgan. To me this book was growth and understanding for the family that started the ALFA PI series. It answeres questions that has been unanswered from the beginning.

Enjoyable read and I want more from characters introduced here and a conclusion to that ending. WOW!!!!

REVIEW

Truly one of my favorite holiday reads. I truly enjoyed Logan and how he came to make every wish come true and being SO blind to the fact. He brought the wallflower to center stage and kept her there through his love and willingness to keep his WIFE happy. I just adored this book.

JOKERS WRATH MC SERIES 


REVIEW

Friendship can go a long way. Rather it is for support for healing, growth, laughs, and companionship. Molly and Roman found each other at their low but used their personalities to form a bond like no other. This was a back and forth process of growth and moving on, living while being unused, knowing your worth and strive. Molly tried to be what Roman needed because he helped her but as a TRUE friend she couldn't just let dogs lay. She pushed and tried to fight a battle that was not hers. I totally got where she was coming from and may have done the same thing. Shoot I have done the exact same thing with a male friend. It hurts but they need that push even if it is not warranted. They often need that extra set of eyes to help them over the hurdle.

Love struck me at the early age of five. The boy turned into a man, and I fell even deeper. Guy Webb had no idea my fragile heart belonged to him for so many years.

I hid my love for years. But now he’s back. Guy Webb returned a broken soldier after serving his country all over the atlas. And now it’s my job to help him heal.
My family lost everything with his return and I can only hope I survive it.

REVIEW

I would starts off by saying Royal Atlas had an AMAZING storyline that will cut you deep in the soul. A lost that can hurt and destroy a part of you that made you whole and live a totally different life. That held true in so many aspects of this book. Basically from beginning to end. What Molly and Guy had was genuine true love, something for the history books. It was that "I wish" type of connection but once reading that held true for the entire Marshall clan and stemmed on through the generations.

I don't want to give too much away but I wanted just a little more of something that would have knocked this out of the park for me. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed it tremendously but something was held back. A military romance book lover like myself will appreciate it and I recommend that you do. A healing from within the lives of someone or something else is always a good thing.

Her 30-book backlist has something for any reader seeking complex storylines with humor and complete casts of characters that will delight, frustrate and linger in the imagination long after the book is finished.











Desiree Holt





A multi-published, award winning, Amazon and USA Today best-selling author, Desiree Holt has produced more than 200 titles and won many awards. She has received an EPIC E-Book Award, the Holt Medallion and many others including Author After Dark’s Author of the Year. She has been featured on CBS Sunday Morning and in The Village Voice, The Daily Beast, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, The London Daily Mail. She lives in Florida with her cats who insist they help her write her books, and is addicted to football.











Lexi Post





Lexi Post is a New York Times and USA Today best-selling author of romance inspired by the classics. She spent years in higher education teaching courses about the classical literature she loved, but romance was her first love. So she married them. From hot paranormals to sizzling cowboys to hunks from out of this world, Lexi provides a sensuous experience with a “whole lotta story.”











Kate Richards





Kate Richards divides her time between Los Angeles and the High Sierras. She would gladly spend all her days in the mountains, but she’d miss the beach…and her very supportive husband’s commute would be three hundred miles. Wherever she is, she loves to explore all different kinds of relationships in her stories. She doesn’t believe one-size-fits-all, and whether her characters live BDSM, ménage, GLBT, spanking, or any other kind of lifestyle, it’s the love, the joy in one another, that counts.











Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey





Six years ago, our paths crossed in a most serendipitous way: through online role play. As funny as it may sound, we were “married/mated” by the group’s owner and from day one, we knew we just clicked. After a few months of writing some pretty hot fanfiction, we decided it was time to write about our own characters. Without a second thought, we embarked on this (crazy) joint writing adventure and Chris Almeida & Cecilia Aubrey were born. Since then, we have written 15 books in our Countermeasure Series (Romantic Suspense), and a novella in the A.W.E. Crew Series (Military Romance) published in Desiree Holt's Omega Team Kindle World and plan to write our own brand of hot & spicy romance for many years to come. 





You can find out more about us and our books here:











Deanndra Hall





Deanndra Hall writes stories in a world she knows well, with characters that are as fun, kinky, and crazy as she is. Although she’s an international bestselling author, she works and lives in far western Kentucky with her partner of 30+ years and three crazy little dogs. She's written for business, industry, religious institutions, non-profits, and owned her own graphic design business, as well as working as a fiber and textile artist. Her personal best was 26,000 words in one day, but she advises against that - it took her the next three days to pry her swollen eyes open. When she's not writing, she can be found working out at the local gym, hiking, kayaking, reading (of course), or working on a healthy recipe. And wherever she is, chocolate is sure to be nearby.











Melissa Keir





Melissa Keir has always wanted to be an author when she wasn’t hoping for a career as a race car driver. Melissa doesn’t believe in down time. She’s always keeping busy. Melissa is a wife and mother, an elementary school teacher, a book reviewer, owner of a publishing company as well as an author. Her home blends two families and is a lot like the Brady Bunch, without Alice. She loves to write stories that feature happy endings and is often seen plotting her next story.











Mia Koutras





Mia Koutras lives in the Greater Toronto Area with her wonderful husband and two amazing children. When she’s not educating students on the brilliant imagery and symbolism in Shakespeare’s great tragedies—while they not so covertly tap away on their cell phones to make plans for lunch and after school—she’s concocting story lines and character sketches in her head, just waiting for the moment to commit them to paper and hard drive. 





Mia can be found online at:











Deelylah Mullin





Deelylah Mullin began her writing journey as a child. Since Fourth Grade Writers' Group, high school creative writing classes, and even more creative writing in college (the first time), she's been working to hone her craft and tell her stories. Back in the day, those stories used to be horror. Now, they're diverse in genre, but almost always with a romantic twist. She’s spent twenty-four years teaching high school and college English/composition courses, professionally edited since 2012, and is in semi-retirement to chase her own dreams.











Anne L. Parks





Anne L. Parks is the author of nine books, including the Return To Me series, and the Tri-Stone Trilogy. Married to the Navy - well a Commander in the Navy – with a background in law, it’s not surprising she was drawn to writing romantic suspense and legal thrillers. Currently residing in the Washington D.C. area, she loves spending time reading, doing yoga, mountain biking, and keeping track of four kids. And drinking wine.











Paige Prince





Paige Prince is the alter ego of Rhyann Harris, erotic romance author, editor, drinker of coffee, and binger of Netflix. Based in a suburb of Houston, Texas, Paige is happily married to her very own romance hero, and they’re raising their very own little heroine. Or hellraiser. They’re not entirely sure which side she’s chosen yet.











Melissa Robitille





Melissa Robitille is an author, editor, book formatter & cover designer, and when that doesn’t keep her busy enough she also designs websites, cooks, sings along to everything and dances, too. She writes everything speculative fiction - fantasy, science fiction, horror, paranormal romance, paranormal noir, urban fantasy, you name it - and will have 2 novellas in boxed sets as well as 4 short stories in anthologies under her own name this year alone, as well as several books published under pen names.











Jamie Salisbury





Writing romance stories with passion and sass, Jamie Salisbury has seen several of her books soar to #1 on Amazon. She’s written as long as she can remember. Her books are all self published. Music, traveling and history are among her passions when not writing. Her previous career in public relations in and around the entertainment field has afforded her with a treasure trove of endless story ideas.











M.A. Stone





M.A. Stone has had magical stories in her head, ever since she was a little girl devouring her favorite Stephen King or Laurell Hamilton novel; she figured if they could write up amazing stories about amazing people and places, well then so could she. She’s had three books published so far, a short story in a novella and is set to release books four and five in the next year. When’s she’s not arguing with her characters or figuring out storylines in the shower, she’s raising up her four AMAZING (and interesting ) children, binge watching stuff on Hulu, making blankets and trying to schedule date nights with the love of her life. She currently lives in Pennsylvania with her family, her overly-emotional pitt bull, a flock chickens named after characters from the movie Friday, and a duck named Ricky. 











You can reach her at:











Lacey Wolfe





Lacey Wolfe has always had a passion for words, whether it’s getting lost in a book or writing her own. Her goal as an author is to have a romance for everyone, whether it’s sweet, sensual, or spicy. She’s had several books on the Amazon best seller lists. When she isn’t writing, she can be found running, talking to her pets, spending time with her family, or lost in some sort of craft. She takes kindly to anyone who feeds her cookies.




Lacey lives in Georgia with her husband, son and daughter, their herd of cats, and one black lab who rules the house.
