Synopsis


Sydney hates liars, despises them really, so what is she to do when the man her heart wants most turns out to be the biggest betrayer and deceiver of them all?



Sydney never finds herself in trouble. She always listens to her parents, follows the rules, and does what is expected of her, but in one moment, that all changes. The day she meets a campus police officer and keeps their relationship a secret from her family, her life takes on a dark turn...



Now scarred and tormented by nightmares, Sydney hides her fears from everyone as she moves back home and takes over her mother’s bakery.



Just when she believes she has a handle on her life, a mysterious man waltzes into her shop and turns her world upside down. Behind the beard and silver eyes Sydney knows he’s hiding something, but is the attraction worth losing herself again?



Dylan Bennett knows he is in trouble the first time he lays eyes on Sydney. Behind her wavy blonde hair and flour-covered clothes he knows that she holds the key to his undoing, but he can’t risk it.



As an undercover agent, Dylan lives his life by strict codes and calculations. He knows one wrong move could put Sydney in danger, but something about her draws him in and that may prove to be the biggest risk he has ever taken. What happens when she finds out the lies behind those silver eyes?



Will the deception become too much for Sydney or will she fight alongside Dylan to bury the one person who brings her past back to the surface?

Excerpt

DYLAN STANDS OUTSIDE SYDNEY’S door, the knuckles of one hand gently tapping on the wood while holding a bouquet of daisies and wild flowers in the other.

After helping Sydney at the bakery this morning and completing a walk-through of The Grill with her brother, Dylan had asked Austin if he had a place in town he could shower and change clothes. Austin had eyed him skeptically, but had offered use of his apartment in town. Dylan was glad he had kept his duffle bag in his car since he hadn’t made it back to Asheville the previous night.

Standing at the door waiting for Sydney to answer, Dylan is fraught with something that has never happened in all the years he has been dating…nerves. He is actually nervous to take Sydney out on a date. Sure, they seemed to get along fine when they were working together, and of course the attraction between them sizzled in epic proportions, but Dylan had a hard time reconciling between the playful Sydney and the scared Sydney. The scared Sydney always fought against what they could have and that made him nervous.

She is something special, someone that deserves to be cherished and he knows that if she gives him the chance, he can prove it to her.

A creak sounds from the door hinges and Dylan looks up from the flowers to find a beautiful creature standing before him. Sydney may have been going for something quick and casual, but Dylan’s tongue practically drops from his mouth as he gazes at her. He takes note of her appearance, beginning with her long blonde hair that is tied up in a ponytail high on her head, the soft waves curling on the end and brushing past her shoulders. A red and black flannel shirt hangs loosely around her, but does little to conceal the womanly shape of her body. The pièce de résistance is the skin-tight black leggings covering her legs. Dylan is almost happy at the fact that the flannel shirt hangs past her ass, because he isn’t sure he would be able to control himself if he saw that perfectly toned portion of her body in the pants.

“I’m sorry, I’m almost ready. I just need to find my shoes. I was sucked into this antique picking show and I couldn’t pull myself away. You can come in,” she gestures as she rushes through the living room and down the hallway.

Instead of standing idly, Dylan moves towards her kitchen and looks in the cabinet above the fridge for a vase. Bingo. He chuckles to himself, thinking that it seems to be the universal spot to hold that item.

Just as he is stepping back from admiring his work on the arrangement that he placed on her coffee table, Sydney joins him in the living room. Dylan hadn’t noticed before, but she has swiped a few coats of mascara on her lashes and added a deep shade of red lipstick on mouth.

“I’m ready,” she announces, grabbing her jacket from where it hangs on a hook by the door. “The flowers look beautiful, by the way.”

She takes a hold of the doorknob, ready to exit, then glances back at Dylan as he says, “Sydney. You look beautiful.” He makes sure to emphasize the fact that he thinks she is the most beautiful item in the room. Country. World. In such a short period of time, he has become so wickedly entranced by her that Dylan would rather spend a life in solitude and have the chance to spend one day with her, than have anything else his heart desires. That thought alone would have scared Dylan a few months back, but now? Now Dylan embraces the feelings bubbling up inside of him. This high he feels whenever he is around her is more powerful than any drug he has ever come across while on the force. She is powerful, captivating, spellbinding.

And he wanted her all for himself, if she would only let him.

Synopsis

Captain T.K. Reaper only cares about his men; until he ends up falling for the one woman who can rescue his team.

Reaper has lived his entire life without love. Living on the edge with no fear, Reaper and his team volunteered for Project Mayhem— a top-secret experiment that uses a serum to enhance physical abilities in order to fight terrorism. Reaper believed the experiment would help save lives, but the serum only ends up taking them. Forced to go on the run, Reaper escapes the lab with his men, only to realize that they need the serum to survive. He has only one choice; return to the lab, and steal the source of the serum.

Caroline Cotter used to be a spoiled Senator’s daughter; now, she’s a victim. Kidnapped and held against her will to make the serum used for Project Mayhem, Caroline gives up hope of ever being free again… until Reaper enters, and frees her from her dark prison.

Yet the jungle outside is full of terrors, and government officials are hot on their tail. Reaper plans to keep the relationship between him and Caroline platonic, but undeniable attraction and explosive desire, coupled with Caroline’s adoration that he saved her from certain death, make it hard to resist the love story blossoming between them.

What will Reaper choose? His romance with Caroline, or the sacred vow he’s made to the brothers willing to die by his side?

Thrills and action are on every turn of the page in the first book of the Operation Mayhem Series. Packed with adventure, heat, and a slight paranormal twist, Mayhem’s Warrior is a dark romantic suspense novel readers will delightfully devour.

Caden


I knew she was the one the moment I laid eyes on her.


She’s everything I’ve ever wanted, and I never dreamed of
finding her in my hometown. Savannah Owens seems lost and wants to find a place
where she feels as if she belongs. What she doesn’t realize is she’s already
found it. When I uncover a long buried secret, I know it’ll change everything
Savannah and I have. Secrets never stay hidden, and once the truth about
Savannah’s past is revealed, I’ll do whatever it takes to keep her and make her
mine forever.

Savannah 


All I’ve ever wanted was to find a place where I belong. 


A place that I actually fit in and don’t feel like an
outsider. When I met Caden Harlow, I thought I found my home. He’s everything I
need to make my life seem almost perfect. No matter how much I try to stay
away, something always pulls me back to him. But the urge to get the answers
I’ve longed for, outweighs my feelings for him. I have to find the truth, if
only to put an end to my insecurity of never being wanted and truly loved. 



*** This can be read as a standalone. ***

Carter

She was the one for me.

The one that I knew would be mine forever until I made the biggest mistake. I pushed her away and I’ve regretted that decision ever since. I’ve tried to move on, tried to put the memory of her behind me, but she’s always consuming my thoughts. Now, she’s back in our hometown, trying to rebuild a new life. I know she’s keeping secrets. She tries to hide them from me, and I will do whatever it takes to prove that I’m the one she needs. Because Shelby Ross is the other part of me that I can’t live without and I refuse to let her go again. 


Shelby

He broke my heart.

I never thought I would be able to pick of the pieces he left behind. When he let me go, I ran away from it all, thinking it was the easiest thing to do. But, running has a price and I’ve paid it in full for years. Now, I’m back where it all began, back to putting my life together and starting over. It should’ve been easy, but Carter Harlow is reawakening long buried emotions that I thought were gone. He wants to make me his again. I can’t let that happen. He ruined me, broke me, and I’m afraid I’ll never survive it a second time around.

Meet Elizabeth Fairchild, 42… A mother of 3, now an empty nester and in Book 1, DITCHING THE DREAM, her struggle to rediscover who she is, what her passions are, what gives her the drive for life. While an affair wasn’t what she was after, after given a ‘hall pass’ from her husband of 22 years, Greg Fairchild, she finds herself involved with two very different men: Jack Stevens and Kevin Parker. What if ‘the dream’ isn’t all you hoped it would be? Who will be Elizabeth's dream?

 The series continues with Book 2, NOT IN MY WILDEST DREAMS and is Jack Stevens’ story…This book is divided into thirds:
Where he came from (when he was 18-25 years old)…
His thoughts during the first book (52 years old, meeting Elizabeth)
And continues the story from the end of the first book.
All his life, he’d made choices that he never imagined would be possible. Are the wildest dreams the ones you are meant to follow?

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "Absolutely fell in love with the 1st book. So of course had to read this one even though Jack wasn't my favorite or my choice for Beth. After reading this book about his story all I can say is WOW. Jack truly came from nothing to get to the man he is now." ~ Mom of 2 Ks (Amazon published Review)



 Book 3 centers around Elizabeth’s daughter, Phoebe Fairchild, 19, as she makes her way through a college internship and relocation to New York. When she is assigned to be a Personal Assistant for Hollywood Bad Boy, and Phoebe’s film crush, Chase Smythe, the chemistry is there. Is she CHASING A DREAM or is her dream chasing her?

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ The pages are filled with discovery, change, new experiences and of course steamy sex with a teen-sensation all grown up. A story to rave about and a must-read! ~ Jennifer Michael (Amazon published Review)

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "Wow what an emotional ride. It was beautiful, heart warming/breaking, yet sexy as well. I laughed, cried and dreamed along with Kevin and..." Kindle Customer (Amazon published Review)

Catch up with Elizabeth, Jack, Phoebe, Greg, and Kevin along with their significant others, and also meet Elizabeth and Greg’s 2 sons, Bradley & Carter.

Title: Ruck Me
Series: Dublin Rugby #2
Author: Rebecca Norinne
Genre: Contemporary Sports Romance
Release Date: August 9, 2017





Blurb

She’s a free spirit; he’s a no nonsense kind of guy.
When these opposites attract ... oh baby! It's game on!



I’ve called Aoife O’Shaughnessy a number of things, but dumb was never
one of them. Through all the insane things she’s done—all the trouble she’s
gotten into—I never once thought she was actually stupid.
Until now. Because I just heard her plan to lose her virginity to the vilest human
being I’ve ever met.



My first thought? How the f*ck is Aoife still a virgin? The
second? Over my dead body.



So I volunteered for the job instead.



It might be the stupidest thing I’ve ever done, but once the
words were out of my mouth, I couldn’t take them back. Now, I can’t stop
wondering what it will be like to kiss the pink-haired sprite I’ve known my
whole life, to hear her moan my name when she comes.



And I know she’s wondering about me too.



What started off as a bit of fun has spiraled out of control and now I’m
in deep. I never meant to fall in love with Aoife … it was never supposed
to go this far. 
And what happens next, just might break both of us.
