And a mouth so dirty he could make the devil blush…
Fix Marcosa’s time can be bought with money, but he isn’t selling sex. Murderers, rapists, criminals: if you’re on the wrong side of Fix’s moral code, you’re in trouble. The kind of trouble that winds up getting you killed. As a hitman for hire, Fix is no stranger to violence. He’s merciless. Relentless. A true savage, down to the roots of his very soul. You can beg. You can plead. You can pray, but it won’t do you any good. Once the tall, dark stranger arrives at your doorstep, it’s already too late to repent.
Sera Lafferty’s no stranger to heartbreak. With an abusive father and a dependant sister, her life has been one of sacrifice and compromise. As soon as she sets eyes on Felix ‘Fix’ Marcosa, she recognizes the darkness in him and makes a vow: she will not get involved. But trapped inside a motel room with the sexiest man to ever walk the earth? Throw in some tequila and the storm to end all storms, and Sera finds herself worshipping at the altar of Marcosa.
She knows she made a mistake.
She knows she needs to run.
But when she witnesses the assassin at work first hand, she knows it’s far too late. Thrown into the back of his sleek black ride, Sera finds herself trapped, and in more way than one. Fix is deadly. He’s demanding, he’s dirty, and he’s determined to claim her for his own.

Everything about him is wrong from his pointy shoes and fancy car to his age. Pushing him away would be the smart move.
Only Al can’t be pushed around anymore. Maybe it’s because she saved his life or maybe it’s because this cowgirl is completely different from every other woman he’s been with.
Problem is Sam has secrets of her own. Secrets she doesn’t want Al to find out because if he did he’d run in the other direction. She pushes him away even though he melts her panties right off—literally. There is more than just her heart that needs protection. Al won’t give up fighting for the feisty cowgirl’s attention.
Tempers will flare and hearts will be broken.

There is no shame in pleasure. And no love in business.
I have a blind date tonight, and I know with 100% certainty that I’m getting lucky. There shouldn’t be any surprises, not for one as jaded as me, but when I walk into the penthouse suite of L’Etoile, everything changes.
1) For one thing, Bea is heartstoppingly gorgeous. Pale green eyes and endless freckles. Curves I want to spend all night exploring, as if her body was made for me.
2) Her innocence makes me want to use my entire inventory of bedroom tricks on her and then invent a few more.
3) Except that… she’s a virgin.
I can initiate her into the world of desire without letting her get attached, can’t I? A few hours of tutoring, and at the end of the night a small fortune will be deposited into my bank account.
Yes, you read that right. There are many words for what I do. After all, mine is the oldest profession. I’m an escort, which means this date is nothing more than a mutually enjoyable transaction.
But once I realize one night with her won’t be enough, I’m the one who’s screwed.

FROM ESCORT BY SKYE WARREN
“Hello,” I call,
stepping into the suite.
There’s a thump
from the bedroom. A woman pops her head around the corner, all frizzy hair and
wild eyes and plump pink lips. She wears a black dress with a startling high
neck, lace on top, the kind that a matron would wear—but her skin is perfectly
smooth, her eyes wide. This is a young woman. Younger than myself, her clothes
an anachronism. Her expression? Pure relief. “Oh thank God.”
She sounds so
sincere that I have visions of an orgasm emergency. A deficiency so intense she
had to dial a twenty-four-hour line to have it fixed. There’s something
undeniably hot about the idea of a woman in dire straits and me the only one
who can help.
I tell her, providing a small bow. “At your service.”
And then I give
her the smile. Not the megawatt one that I used downstairs. I give her the
slow, suggestive one, that lets her know every dirty thing that I’m thinking.
It isn’t fake. It
doesn’t need to be. Not with her whispery curls that I’d love to feel in my fist.
Not with the pale freckles across her nose that I’d love to track all the way
down her body.
Her eyes are an
interesting pale green. I want to look in them while I go down on her.
dirty thought is in the smallest smile.
disappears back into the bedroom. “In here!”
How unusual. I’ve
never met a woman as hurried about her sexual requirements. She sounds worried,
almost frantic, and I haven’t even been here sixty seconds.
I follow her,
feeling for the first time in years out of my depth. It’s a nice feeling, a
pleasant simmer in my veins. My steps feel lighter across the plush carpet.
At the threshold
I barely have time to register the strange furniture. It’s large and antique.
Expensive but mismatched. As if they crammed an estate sale into one room.
The woman is bent
over a large dresser, her ass perfectly plump. I could fill my hands with her.
Could press my new erection against the crease. Except it isn’t a sexy pose.
Instead she seems
to be looking behind the dresser.
she’s saying, breathless. “Come out, sweetie. You can do it.”
Based on the
sweet tone of her voice and the cat dish I spotted on way inside, I already
know what I’m going to see when I peek over the top of the dresser. Sure enough
there’s a fluffy cat with bright yellow eyes peering up at me.
I don’t have much
experience with cats. They were one level up from rodents where I grew up,
useful for catching rats and underfoot in dark alleys.
experience with pussies of a different sort translates just fine, because I can
see exactly what’s happened to the poor girl. She’s backed herself all the way
into a corner, made her body so small she can’t possibly come out.
No matter how
nicely her owner coaxes her, it won’t work. It can’t possibly. Something like
this isn’t solved with words; it’s solved with a confident, calming touch.

Second Chance Charmer by Brighton Walsh Publication Date: March 19th, 2018 Genre: Contemporary Romance
Willow Haven’s content. Okay, that’s a lie, but she has tried her damndest. Trouble is, it never sticks. Second oldest in a family her town was named after, she’s always felt the pressure. From the townspeople, from her sisters, but most of all from her daddy—the original Good Old Boy and Havenbrook’s reigning mayor. The only time she didn’t feel that stress had been those blissful months spent in the arms of the resident bad boy. The same one who broke her heart beyond repair when he left without a word.
Life hasn’t come easy for Finn Thomas. He’s had to claw and fight for everything he’s ever had—and truth be told, it hasn’t been much. He spent the first eighteen years of his life living so far from the wrong side of the tracks, he couldn’t even see them through his trailer window. The only thing that ever came easy for him and made his sorry ass happy was the one girl he loved with all his heart. And the one thing he had no choice but to leave behind.
When an opportunity arises to return to his tiny, southern hometown and open the first bar in a formerly dry county, he jumps at the chance. That won’t win him points with the mayor, who’s hell bent on making Finn’s life a nightmare for sullying his namesake. Too bad for Mayor Haven, Finn’s got his sights set on more than just the town, and this time he won’t be scared off quite so easily.

She lives in the Midwest with her husband and two children, and, yes, she considers forty degrees to be hoodie weather. Her home is the setting for frequent dance parties, Lego battles, and more laughter than she thought possible.
When the raven-haired beauty popped up on my phone as a match, I had to have her. She became a fast obsession, one I couldn't get out of my head. Our first date was a disaster. But when it came to sex, we made sense. So, we came up with an arrangement--sex with no strings attached.
Everything was working out until she became my new employee. I was supposed to train her, show her the ropes. But she made it impossible to stay away. The closer we worked, the more I realized maybe we were the perfect match. She just didn't know it yet.
