Shortly after marriage, her husband rejoined the U.S. Navy and they moved from Kansas City and started their journey together. Currently they have two amazing children, a boy and a girl, and are still enjoying the Navy life.

Tonight? Please, Mallory, give me another chance.” He smiles softly, making my heart skip a beat.“I can’t do tonight. I’m here ‘til ten o’clock.” I look over myshoulder, and my boss is scowling at me, his arms folded over his chest. “I’ve got to get to work. I’m sorry, Archer. Maybe another day.” I scurry away, avoiding eye contact with my boss and serve the next customer.“I’ll be here at ten, Mallory,” Archer calls out as he walks out.“This isn’t a pick-up joint, Halston. Get to work,” Mr. Kowolski mutters to me before stomping back to his office.Carl looks at me and gives me a smile. “He’s a hot guy, rich too. You should go for him.” He winks and carries on serving.The day is long, and I’m hot and sweaty by the time I finish. All I want to do is go back to my room and get under a cold shower. The night has cooled down, but even in darkness, the heat is suffocating. I walk out the kitchen door and see Archer waiting for me. He smiles and pushes off from the wall. I look at his long legs clad in denim tonight, and a tight-fitting short-sleeved shirt shows off his broad chest, making me swallow hard.“You shouldn’t have come out again, Archer. I’m tired and in desperate need of a shower and my bed. Can we take a raincheck?” I ask quietly as he approaches me.His green eyes darken as he looks me over. “I’m here now, and I can offer you both of those options if you’d like to come back to my place.” His voice is deepand husky as he steps into my space.“Huh? I don’t think that’s a good idea. We don’t know each other.” I struggle to speak as I inhale the crisp citrus scent of his cologne.“What better way to find out more.” His mouth is so close to mine I can feel hiswarm breath washing over my dry lips. I slide my tongue over my lower lip, dampening it or maybe trying to capture his flavor. My eyes flutter as I feel his mouth brush over mine, a touch so light I could have almost believed I imagined it until I hear him sigh.“Shit,” I mutter under my breath. My heart beats frantically in my chest as I crave for his touch.“Come back with me, Mallory.” His words resonate in my chest, making my refusal impossible. I nod my head and let him take my hand. “Thank you,” he whispers.Excerpt twoWhen I walk into work, it looks like there’s an intervention about to take place. Kes, East, and Denver are all here as well as Shelley and the new bartender, Paris.“Hey, guys. What’s up?” I step up to them and see the huge grins on their faces. “Why are you looking like goons?”“We thought we’d come in and say hi. Y’know, just a catch-up.” Kes keeps smiling as he laughs.“Oh really, you just happened to drop by. Right, fine. I’ll play along.” I narrow my eyes because I damn well knowwhy they are here. “How are you keeping, what’s new?”Denver smiles and looks me over. I remember I’ve got the same clothes on as last night, but I don’t think they would know that. “Oh, we’re all good, y’know. Getting along with the joys of parenting, what about you? What’s new with you?” His grin is devilish.“I’m good. Nothing much to say. I’ll just get to the office and start on the banking.” I walk past as East looks at me and catches hold of my arm and looks at my neck. His finger nudges the necklineof my shirt and drags it away.I tug away from him as he laughs. “Fuck off, East!” I scowl and move on.“He’s got a hickey!” He smirks, and the rest of them all burst out laughing.“Come on, Carter, spill the beans! What’s going on with you and the hot lawyer?” Kes is still laughing but stops when I shoot him a back-off look.But as I think of Dan and the amazing morning, I can’t help grinning. “It’s going well. That’s all I’m going to say.”“Congratulations, Carter. Happiness looks good on you. And if it’s Daniel who is making you happy embrace it, buddy.” Kes smiles again.“Yeah, we’re only messing with you. It’s been great to see you smile more.” Shelley hugs me and drops a kiss on my cheek.The rest of the day drags as I watch the door. Dan said he’d try to come in, but he didn’t say when.“Stop staring at the door. If he said he’ll come, he will.” Paris sighs at me and nudges me with his elbow.“I’m not staring. I just glanced over when you happened to be looking at me,” I grumble.“You keep telling yourself that,” he jokes, then looks up and smiles. “It looks like your man is here.”I whip my head around and gape as I take him in, striding towards me, his eyes fixed on me and only me. I gulp and stare. His dirty-blond hair is in its rough-and-ready state that just makes me want to run my fingers through it. His amber eyes blaze with gold flashes as he looks me over. I drink in the fitted white T-shirt stretched tight over muscles I have traced with my tongue. His blue, well-worn jeans mold his long, strong legs, the muscles flexing as he gets closer.His eyes flicker down to my mouth as I dampen my bottom lip, making him copy my action. Fuck! He is hot as shit!“Hey, baby,” he murmurs as he reaches the bar.“Hey, you,” I whisper back as we both lean overthe polished wood bar. Our mouths touch, and I hum against his soft, but oh so firm, lips. “I’ve missed you.”“I’ve missed you too.”When we pull apart, I notice the room has gone quiet as everyone stares. I look at Shelley, and she fans her face.“Holy fuck, you two are hot as hell!” She looks around and laughs. “I think they just got their Hollywood moment, that was straight out of the movies.”

Empire of Dirt
The da Silva Heirs 3
Two broken hearts, one chance to heal.
Tate Verhoven was broken by an accident that destroyed his legs and his confidence. After a foolish decision, he also lost the woman he loved–to his brother. Feeling betrayed and broken, Tate hides in darkness. Even Cady McCoy is hard pressed to help.
Marcia came to Texas merely to help her sisters, Fatima and Lucy. The Verhovens also need her help after the devastating events of the past weeks. With a heart of stone and steel wall around it, she’s not there to make friends. Designing an expansive plan to help the Verhoven ranch thrive, Marcy is ready to take on the world.
It takes the death of just one head of cattle on a neighboring farm for the accusations of witchcraft and bad juju to start flying. Cady and Lucy are first for the guillotine.
While Tate’s fighting mental illness, superstition, and the mysterious death of cattle around Austin, he’s desperate to find his place again. Taking on the task of proving Cady and Lucy innocent may be exactly what he needs.
To his surprise, the da Silva girls aren’t done with him– or his heart–yet.

And he’s hoping to do that before he turns thirty-nine.
He soon discovers his mother has invested in a harebrained scheme, capitalizing on the family name. She’s turning the homeplace into a weight loss center. Eazy�s not happy with the new business at all�until the last registered guest arrives accompanied by her dog.

FBI agent Mackenzie Sierra Scott appreciates the irony in her situation. While she recovers from a gunshot wound meant to keep her from testifying against embezzlers, she’s spending six weeks in-hiding at a weight loss center. Her handler probably thinks he’s being cute, knowing she considers dieting stupid. Phatt Farm is going to be six weeks of mindless boredom.
But then again, maybe not. As soon as she meets the resident farmer, Mack thinks of many ways they could burn calories together. When he asks her to help him with farm work as an alternative to a daily regime of yoga, meditation, and pushups, she accepts, picturing hours of gratuitous sex.
Hot body aside, Eazy Phatt is a pain in the neck. Instead of becoming her lover, he turns Mack into a farmhand, keeping her busy from first light till bed. She drives tractor, stacks hay, picks apples, shucks corn, and somewhere along the way, falls in love. And that all happens before the shooting starts.

Genre: Contemporary romance, rockstar romance
Spark was just a beautiful story. This is technically a rock star romance but it’s so so so much more. The story was very well written and the characters were deep and real. I love that Jet was more of an up and coming rocker than the normal already hit the big time that I usually see. It makes it easier from the start to see him as a real and more relatable person. These characters go through so much. The pain and emotional turmoil they deal with it heart breaking. I was up and down with emotions while reading this book. I felt like I was going through everything with them. Going through the ups and downs with these characters made the love and romance in the story so much sweeter. This was a beautiful and at times heart breaking book. I’m excited to check out more SL Scott and for more of this series!

holding my dress, but just as I did, the door to the dressing room flew
open, and Dylan stood there looking back at me.His eyes were wide with shock, as if he hadn’t expected me to be behind
the door, and then they dropped from my face and slid down my body in an
invisible caress.I should have covered myself; I
should have screamed at him to get out, but I didn’t move or tell him to go.
The way he was looking at me, I needed that. I needed to feel beautiful and
desirable.“What are you doing here?” I watched
him, his eyes a stormy blue.His eyes devoured me, making me feel
uncomfortable. If Mitchell supposedly loved me and disliked what he saw when he
looked at me, then surely a man who didn’t love me would see me as even worse.“The lady out front said the
bathroom was the last door on the right, but I’m guessing she meant the last
door on the left,” he said, not bothering to the hide the fact that he was
looking at my body.I nodded, not sure what to say.“I should apologize and turn around
and leave.”I swallowed hard.He didn’t leave.Instead, he moved into the room and
quietly shut the door behind him.“But you see, there’s a problem.”“What’s that?” I asked.He reached out, running a single
finger over my shoulder and down across my chest. “I can’t stop looking at
you.”I folded my arms across my chest
now, feeling more exposed than I ever had in my life. His finger dipped into
the top of my folded arms and between my breasts.“You’re covering yourself like a
woman who thinks she’s unattractive,” he said, moving close enough that his
whispered words ruffled the hairs on the
side of my face. “But the truth is, my cock’s hard just looking at you.”I stiffened at his words.No one had ever spoken to me like
that. No man had ever been so brazen, saying naughty words to me in such a
manner.“How does that make you feel, Gwyn?”
He moved closer, his lips skimming my earlobe and making me bite my bottom lip.I should have run out, but I was
half naked. And the truth was, I couldn’t move. My legs were stiff, and my feet
were rooted to the spot.“How does it make you feel knowing
my cock is hard and throbbing for you?” He licked my lobe, and I shivered.
“Here you are, in your white bra and panties, looking so innocent and
corruptible … what’s an evil man like me supposed to do?”“You’re not evil,” I said, finally
able to speak up.My voice squeaked with my words,
making me blush even harder.He leaned back, his brow lifting in
question. “You don’t think I’m evil?”I shook my head. “Not even a little
bit.”“I assure you I am.” Again, he
leaned forward, pressing his lips against my shoulder.As if an automatic reflex, I tilted
my head to the side to give him more skin to explore.“I’m jealous of the way the lace on
your panties is riding up your curvy hips and disappearing into the sweet space
between your thighs.” He kissed my shoulder once again, his breath striking the
side of my neck and filling my ear. “I want to be that lace, Gwyn. I want to be
resting inside your warmth.”
Dear God, he was good, and I was so very bad.
