Only for Him - New series alert!

Published on February 24, 2015

 

Grayson Ford and Emma Kinglsey--close since they were kids, opposites in every way. He's the stuff high school crushes are made of, Mister Popular, and captain of every team. She's artsy, cute, and not in his league, though fully aware of Summerland's "I Dream of Dating Grayson Ford" support group.


I can't say no. The girl's had my heart since before I knew it went missing.

He hides a life of hell. His father hates him, his mother's gone. Emma is his only savior, yet she doesn't know her power over him. She's the only girl he wants, the only one he could ever tell--though he won't.

I'm stronger, bigger, more of a man than he'll ever be, but because I ruined his life, I've taken his crap, his attacks, the vulgar nature of his existence.
 
Until she discovers Gray's embarrassment, his humiliation. Emma fights for him and for a chance. Theirs is a Cinderella story that she believes impossible. But as the layers peel back, it's just a guy who needs a girl in order to keep breathing.

My mind is already doodling Mrs. Grayson Ford in imaginary notebooks. He has no clue where my head is at... But, given that I didn't see what just happened coming, maybe I have no clue where his head is at either.

Only for Him. Only series, Volume One.

All novellas will release Spring 2015.

Delta: Retribution

 

A MAN IS NOTHING 
Trace Reeves was one bad day from a dishonorable discharge. The best the Navy SEALs had to offer, he became a vengeful, angry mess when his twin brother was killed-in-action. Now he's focused on a deadly obsession and unable to cope with the pain and guilt... except one time, in the arms of a one night stand that he'd never see again. She was smart, the sexiest thing he'd ever touched, but she disappeared into the night. 

WITHOUT HIS TEAM 
Titan Group was recruiting for their Delta team. They wanted ghosts. No ties. Nothing personal. The best of the best who could live off the grid and surface when commanded. Trace was the perfect recruit. Damaged. Heroic. Nothing to lose. 

UNTIL A MISSION--OR A WOMAN--CHANGES EVERYTHING 
But when Trace's one-time fling becomes his high-value target during a black ops job, the lines blur between her rescue mission and saving himself. 

What reviewers raved... 
"It is even better than the Titan series if that is even possible." 
"This book is hot! It has romance, suspense, and hot sexy military men." 
"What happens after is pure Cristin Harber." 
"Fantastic start to the Delta series." 

Delta: Retribution is the first title in the new Delta series, a spin off from the Titan series. This novella was available in the Hot Alpha SEALs: Military Romance Megaset. 

Fallen Navy SEAL and Titan Group’s Delta recruit Trace Reeves wants nothing more than a one-night stand to forget that his twin brother was killed-in-action. But when his one-time fling becomes his high value target, the lines blur between her rescue mission and saving himself.

Hart Attack - Titan Series, Book #7

Published November 18, 2014

 

Outside of Titan Group, there are few people that Roman Hart would die for. He’s a soldier, a protector, and he’s haunted that one of the people he should’ve been able to protect didn’t let him. That was years ago, and now a hardened heart and a cocky attitude are his impenetrable shields, until one woman—one challenge—drives him to distraction. 

On the outside, Beth Tourne has it all. Luxury car, gorgeous condo, and a job partying with the rich and famous. It’s a plush CIA cover, but she wants more. Anything for an adrenaline rush that can override her guilty numbness and let her forget the tragedy she never saw coming. 

Their scars make them perfect operatives. Their mirrored pasts give them deep, wounded reasons to stay alone. But the more they ignore the tension, the more vulnerable they become. Survival means trust. In one another, behind closed doors, and on the job. The only way they’re making it out alive is if they find peace while waging a war.

Gambled - Titan Series, Book #4

Published September 23, 2013

 

Brock Gamble’s epic fall from the Titan Group labeled him a traitor. He betrayed his men. He failed his family. And when he thought he’d hit the lowest point, his wife walked out with their children, leaving him alone to drown himself in the bottle. 

Surviving an abduction didn’t end the nightmare for Sarah Gamble. The aftershocks of post-traumatic stress disorder hit her hard. Self-doubt and confusion. Anger and hurt. Running away was an easy escape until Brock shows up on her doorstep offering a trip to paradise and a promise to fix their marriage. 

Before the couple can search for answers, Brock is pulled back into the very world that Sarah is so scared of—kidnapping, cartels, and guns—and the stakes are too high for either one of them to ignore.

To make Nicola his girl, no matter the risks, and hold the hand of the one he really loves.

Garrison's Creed (Titan #2) by Cristin Harber

Reblogged from Lost In A Book:
Garrison's Creed - Cristin Harber

So, I guess I might as well go ahead and lay out my weaknesses for you, here and now.

 

#1.  I'm a sucker for stories set in Virginia.

#2.  I'm a sucker for a second chance romance.

#3.  I'm a sucker for blonde, muscled, gun toting, cowboy hat wearing, alpha manwhores. (well, I didn't used to be, but after reading this I am)

 

Yup.  I'm a sucker.  And I fell for Cash.  Hard.  Can I have him, please?  Can I?  Can I?  Can I?

 

Hang on.  I need a moment...

 

Alright, now that I'm a little calmer.

 

Cash (said on a dreamy, breathy sigh while I stare off into space).  That is all.

 

No.  That is not all.  Cash is awesome.  He is sexy.  He is strong.  He can shoot.  He loves Nicola.  And he's sentimental (aww).  What's there not to like?  Oh, the manwhore thing.  Eh, whatever.  He's forgiven.

 

Nicola.  Another kick-ass heroine.  She is badass.  She is smart.  She is tough.  She can hold her own with the big boys while at the same time being feminine and girly.

 

Action, suspense, danger.  It's all there and you never know when or where it will pop up.  Furthermore, you never know who will need saving and who will save the day.

 

Sugar?  Didn't see that coming.  Jackson?  Didn't peg that one either.

 

It was full of surprises.  I loved it.

 

And after all of that there is the teaser action for Westin's Chase.  I can't wait to get my hands on it.

 

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
