The
last three years of Kenya Davis’s love life were rife with false starts
and heartaches in her pursuit to get back her ex-boyfriend, Dave. The
one bright spot she clung to was her job as a health scientist with CDC.
When she received a promotion that placed her in the field, Kenya saw
it as the distraction she desperately needed.
 
Simon
Washington lived a charmed life before his world came crashing down
around him. One fateful night full of confusion and heartache, he found
himself accused of domestic violence and the attempted murder of a
police officer. The once – affluent businessman was now on the run from
the law, leaving behind his wife, a thriving business, and his social
status.
 
Kenya’s
new position took her under the interstate bridge to the homeless, but
among the poor and hungry, she discovered Simon. Their worlds collided
in an unexpected mash-up of uncertainty and desire. 
 
Kenya
wanted to comfort him, despite the warning bells going off in her head.
Was he the dangerous criminal the news described him as or the same guy
she knew from college? Should she trust the man who fell into her world
and crowded everything else out?
 
Simon
felt drawn to the courageous, kindhearted spirit who refused to protect
herself from his drama and accept that her trust in him put her in
danger. He had to push her away, but the sweetness of her presence was
hard to give up when he needed it so much.
 
Risking It All
follows Kenya and Simon as they walk through a minefield of emotions
and close calls to find and maintain their freedom and maybe even love –
with or without each other.

The Summer of ’71

Blurb

You’re in a foreign country wearing a strapless, full length metallic dress that looks like paint, four inch heels on a cobblestoned street, your eyes are painted black, rhinestones pasted to your lids, you have no money, no plans, and have attached yourself to a rocker who intends to make you his pleasure in exchange for a bed and a semblance of security. He gets arrested and now you’re alone on the street, cannot retrieve your bags, know no one else, don’t speak Italian, the predators start to circle and you’re a piece of fresh meat.

He’s sitting by the fountain, playing his guitar. A young but brilliant American who spends each summer in the rich medieval villa of his aristocratic mother. He stands up for you and fights off the carnivorous Italian men.

Summer of ’71 is a story of hopelessness, resurrection, friendship, infatuation and love. Set against a backdrop of the ancient city of Rome, it’s ruins, monuments, museums and café society, it is the whirlwind romance of a young prodigy, handsome, entitled, brilliant and alone and a down on her luck fashion model, abused, mistreated and desperate for salvation.

The first book in the Art Historian Superhero Series, this story launches the lives of two fascinating people who find happiness and enlightenment in one another. It is always romantic, sometimes erotic, and written with the loving hand of an art historian, sharing the wonders of the ancient city in the turbulent times of the social revolution.

5* Review Quotes

Playing It Cool

PLAYING IT COOL

A Men of Steele Novella

by Zoë Mullins

Genre: Erotic Contemporary Romance

When Spencer’s old college roommate offers him a job at Steele Construction, he doesn’t hesitate. Not only does he get to be closer to his sister and her family, he may finally have the chance to repair the rift between himself and his parents.

His parents live only three hours away but it may as well be on Mars as a blizzard moving up the coast has him seeking refuge at The Red Gate Inn. Spencer prides himself on playing it cool, but something about the raven-haired innkeeper has him overheated.

As a single working mom, Gina didn’t get much time to herself. With her mom and daughter off to Florida for a week, and the inn she owns closed for the holidays, she is looking forward to some me time. Then it started to snow. In good conscience she couldn’t turn away her brother’s newest employee when he needed shelter from the storm, but her guest has her feeling anything but professional.

It may be cold outside but things are heating up at the Inn.

He backed her up until her bum hit the counter. He was crowding her, but he wasn’t actually touching her. He was staring at her. She saw his nostrils flare a little as he took in a deep breath. She needed to do that too. Breathe. “What are you doing?”

“Waiting for my good sense to take over and tell me it’s a bad idea to seduce my boss’s baby sister.

“Is that what you think you have to do? Seduce me?” When had her voice gotten so husky and teasing? She had pretty much invited him to have his way with her, and most of her senses were saying ‘yippee’.

“You tell me.” His lips brushed across her cheek, and his hands slid past her waist to brace the countertop behind her.

“What are you going to do?” It wasn’t a serious question. She knew exactly what he hoped to do. She hoped he’d do it too. Soon. If his kisses earlier had been anything to go by, and they had her weak-kneed, then she was in for a very pleasant evening.

He pressed his body against her, and she was reminded of the dreams that had plagued her last night. The ache between her thighs was no product of her imagination. It was very real. She wanted him, wanted this.

“You know what I want.” He brought his lips to hers, and slid his hands up her back. He threaded one hand through her hair, holding her tightly, just where he wanted her. She groaned as her mouth parted for his tongue, and she placed her hands against his chest. She couldn’t remember when kissing had been this good. He tasted like heaven. Even better than the pumpkin spice lattes she was addicted to.

An addiction, she thought. That’s what he is, or, at least what he might become. There was something about his gentle control that made her hips squirm, and she never squirmed. He wrapped one large hand around her waist and pulled her tight against him. There was no doubting that he wanted her.

Invitation to Play

AmazonB&NKoboGoodreads

Deacon has never been the jealous type. Sharing his sub was an integral part of their relationship, especially before they were married. It’s been a year since they’ve invited another to play with them, but then Deacon and Sherri meet Kai, the intriguing ex-Air Force Captain turned tattoo artist.

Kai didn’t care if people thought he was gay, but having his father – the Colonel – shame him publicly for it was more than Kai could take. He moved across the country to start an honest life. He didn’t expect that life would include a new relationship.

Kai isn’t sure where he fits into Deacon and Sherri’s relationship – they didn’t need a bisexual Dom with a chip on his shoulder… or did they?

Reader Advisory: Grab a glass of wine, sit back and relax. This story has two hot Doms and their pampered sub -tonight no one is going to bed unsatisfied. Graphic sexual language and scenes are to be expected. (BDSM, MMF and MM scenes)

Sit back and enjoy the story about two people in vastly contradicting roles come together in a fire-sparking showdown. Just be warned: it is the shy ones you need to watch the closest.

WTF

Life was never meant to be easy, right?

Well, it’s true! especially for me.

I hadn’t had the best start to life, shithead parents whose abuse still haunted me, a job that I loved – but didn’t seem to be going anywhere fast, and a best friend who was about to pop out a baby – which rattled some skeletons in my own past.

But, when PC Richard Handcock slapped a parking ticket on my car, that’s when my life got… complicated.

Like WTF complicated.

BOOK 1

FML

My life was like some psychotic mutant cross breed of Notting Hill and Bridget Jones’s Diary. I worked in a second-hand bookstore and I was a blonde British girl trying to find the love of my life. The only difference was, I had no handsome(ish) Brits after my pudgy British arse, I didn’t smoke like a chimney, but on occasion I did drink like a fish. and yes, my mother did like to send me her off cast clothing that looked like they were right out of the nineteen-forties.
Oh, and I lived in L.A. Movie capital of the world.
It took a twisted turn, however, the day my gay roommate managed to convince me that going in to a movie studio for Extras Casting was a good idea.
If I had known what my life would be like after that fateful day, I would have told him to sod off and cut his bollocks off for dragging my arse out the door.

Quickly, I bend down and throw her over my shoulder. One of
my arms holds her legs down while my free hand swats her ass.
“You asshole!” she screeches.
“I don’t play. Now you know.”
She’s trying to kick me but not succeeding. Her fists thump
against my back as I take long strides to our table. At the last minute,
I decide to go past our seats to the pool tables. Luckily, one of them is
empty. I drop her ass right on the table. Balls scatter as she flails before
righting herself.
Her eyes blaze with fury. “You’re a dick, you know that?”
“Yup. Now stay here.” I point at her. Then I walk back to the bar
and grab four more shots of whiskey. I don’t want to drink much, but
apparently, she wants to prove a point. Fine. So be it. I won’t let her get
plastered, but she’ll have a hell of a buzz by the time we leave here.
I’m surprised to see she hasn’t left the pool table. Her eyes are on
me as I walk back. I place two shots down on the wooden ledge of the
table and tip one of the remaining two down my throat. She swallows
both shots, one after the other, and slams them down on the green felt.
“Hey, watch the felt,” I tell her.
She rolls her eyes and jumps down. “Up for a game?”
“Depends. Are we betting?” I drink down my other shot.
“Of course we are.”
“What are the stakes?” Oh, I can’t wait to see what she comes up
with.
She walks around the table, collecting the balls, racking them up.
“If I win, you drive me back to my apartment and walk me to my door.
No goodnight kiss, no good night fuck. Especially, no more caveman
bullshit.”
“Fine. And if I win, I take you back to my house and we do
whatever I want. No bullshit. No smart-ass attitude.”
She sticks out her hand, already swaying slightly on her feet. We
shake, then I pull her in close so our chests are touching. “Deal,” she
says breathily.
“Your ass is mine, darlin’.”
