Vigilante Mine CoverInternal Affairs be damned, Detective Amanda Werner's ditching protocol to hunt the vigilante whose bullet landed her on the bench. But this is no vendetta. Evidence suggests he's the zealot offing corrupt public officials--the same zealot who's promised to set the city ablaze by week's end--and she'll risk her career and her life to save her hometown. Too bad she can't find anything stronger than Kevlar to guard her heart against her primary suspect: a masked man with a telepathic German shepherd, unstable supernatural hearing, and lips that invite a whole different brand of investigation.

All businessman Ryan McLelas, a.k.a. Klepto, wants is redemption. But even if Amanda could forgive his itchy trigger finger, Ryan still has to convince her that his alter ego's no serial killer. No small task, with syndicate-paid police officers turning up among the dead. He'd better keep his own syndicate ties close to his chest and Amanda even closer, because if Klepto is unmasked while he's hunting the real killer, their passionate affair could mark Amanda as the next dirty cop on the hit list.

Bonus Scene: Pillow Talk

This scene takes place at the end of chapter 26; their “crazy, stolen, desperate treat in the middle of chaos.”

Ryan gritted his teeth as Amanda eased beside him, the bare skin of her leg smoothing over his. This was just one night of many he wanted to share with her. Working beside her, a teammate, a lover, someone he was discovering a need to keep by his side in some measure of permanence...and there were so many things he wanted to learn about Amanda beyond her work and the bedroom; he didn’t know where to begin.


“So?” she said with a pleased grin. “That’s all you have to say?”

“I can go back to the heavy breathing if you prefer.”

She gave an unladylike snort, and toes beginning to grow icicles slid down his calf. Ryan twitched her comforter up from where it hung half-off the side of the bed, throwing it over them. Amanda took the opportunity to snuggle in closer. Her hand stroked his chest, a movement accompanied by a small frown that made it seem less like a pet and more like an absent disbelief that he was still beside her.

“Hot cocoa and doughnuts,” he said after a few minutes of simply inhaling her scent and grinning like a fool. “Is there anything else I should keep in mind for future apologies? Because I will screw up, and the last flowers you got hit the trash pretty hard.”

“One, those flowers came from a madman. Two...” She poked his bare chest with her forefinger. “An actual apology will suffice for an apology. But if you want to get me something for my birthday--”

“Covered. Joyride. The Mustang.” He threaded his fingers through her hair. A little pressure brought her gaze up to his. “Top-down, sun shining, a nice deserted strip somewhere you can see the stars.”

She laughed, a sound easy and musical as ever, and it did something to the heart that was full to the brim with her.

“I know you have issues with dogs. Are there any animals you do like?”

Her fingers paused. “Is this an interrogation?”

As a hint of strain entered her voice, Ryan slid his fingers down to cup her jaw. “This is just us. Right here. Right now. Table the job and let the world have its madmen, okay?”

Light lashes swept down and then back up. She moved again, a lazy trace of his collarbone. “Okay. Okay. I like cats. Big, giant, fuzzy ones who take up your whole lap when they cuddle.”

He smiled. “You say that like you have one in mind.”

“Right after the academy, Mom had me catsit this behemoth of a furball for a week.” Lips curled softly at the memory. “Best naps on record.”

“What’s your favorite color?”

She sent him a sly look under her lashes. “Blue.”

A gown that shimmered and ended in a puddle around sky-high heels crashed into the foreground of his mind, blended with the eyes that gleamed up at him. “Mine too,” he said, and it was a growl that made her own smile grow. “Ah, you’re still thinking about the car. My garage will never be safe.”

A soft chuckle, then she tilted her head toward the pile of pillows they shared. “Do you read?”

“Constantly. You?”

“I prefer old movies to books. But it was my turn. What do you read?”

“You’ll laugh.”

“Try me.”


She didn’t laugh, but an eyebrow went up like a rocket. “You’re joking.”

“Sherlock Holmes.”

“Is this a new fetish, this fascination with crime-solving?”

He shook his head and her fingers automatically brushed at a length of hair that fell into his face. “Believe it or not, I was into detectives before I shot you.”

Book Tour & Giveaway ~ One Step Closer by Kahlen Aymes

The only had each other…

Until one forbidden night ruined everything.

This new sexy stand-alone Stepbrother is Now Available

Amazon US | UK

**Additional Retailers to follow**


Stepsister. He hated that f*cking word.

When their parents got married, the only thing Caleb Luxan had in common with Wren Brashill was that they both hated their parents. When he was sixteen, Caleb discovered Wren's closely guarded secret and vowed to protect her: from that day forward she became the reason for every decision he made.

Jealousy and long-suppressed desire overpowered Caleb's fierce protectiveness and they spent one forbidden and unforgettable night in each other arms, but the aftermath left Caleb panicked, Wren heartbroken, and their relationship in shambles. In the time since that fateful night, he’d only seen her once and had only managed to make the situation even worse.

The sudden death of his estranged father calls Caleb home and face-to-face with Wren for first time in years. He is presented with a choice that forces him to confront the painful memories of his youth and his many regrets with Wren.

Like it or not, his father's last, hard lesson, will demand Caleb deal with his long denied emotions for Wren, or let go of her forever.


Caleb’s muscled frame was rigid and as Wren looked at him, she studied his profile, and could feel his coiled tension. The fingers in his right hand curled into a fist. “I was so mad. So many times, I wished he’d been the one to die.” His voice was full of pain, as the words tore from him. “I fucking hated him with every breath I took. You saw how much.” 

Wren nodded, though he didn’t see her acquiescence. She knew what he went through growing up when they had formed an affable alliance against their parents. She hated her mother at least as much as Caleb hated his father and she understood his anger and pain; then the apathy that became a welcome alternative. They’d been unlikely allies against a common enemy. 

“Maybe I deserved his indifference.”

Wren got up and went to Caleb, standing behind him as he stood still as stone, and staring out the window. Her heart ached with love and grief for Caleb. She wanted to touch him; to offer reassurance, to take away the ache in his voice and heart. Without considering her actions, her arms slipped around his waist and she pressed up against his strong back and leaned her head against him, between his shoulder blades.

Caleb was massive in comparison to her, and she was like a flower curling around him. Her hands fanned out against his hard stomach, her fingers finding the definition of his abs beneath his shirt. “Stop, Cale. I won’t let you do this to yourself. Your dad wouldn’t want that. None of it was your fault.” Her arms slid fully around him and held him tight against her body. “I can’t bear it. You’ve had enough pain. Enough.”

Caleb sucked in a deep breath, the action bringing her even closer. He could feel every curve of her body pressed so closely against his back. He could feel her breathing, could feel how she shared his pain. His hand came up and he ran the flat of his hand from her elbow down to her hand, and then wrapped his fingers around hers.

“When did you turn into the strong one?”

Wren’s arms tightened around him. “When I met you. ”

“Oh, Wren.” Should he just spill his guts? Would it fix everything? “I’ve got so much to say to you. How long can you stay?”

She nodded against him, unwilling to end the contact between their bodies; needing the closeness as much as he did. 

He wanted to apologize for how he acted the last time he’d seen her, he wanted to say a hundred things… he needed her forgiveness.

“How long do you need me?”

In that moment a miracle happened; a sort of beautiful irony that taunted Caleb with it’s fragileness. It was as if he’d never screwed everything up between them. But would it stay this way?

How long do I need you? Caleb thought. His heart raced to the point of exploding, and he wondered if Wren could feel it.



Caleb and Wren have always had a close relationship ever since Caleb decided to protect her from her vindictive, self obsessed mother. He may have not wanted her when she showed up in his house after his father married her mother, now he can't imagine a life without her. But one night changed everything, their seeming unbreakable bond is put to the test when Caleb crosses the line with Wren and runs away.

Now after several years apart, the death of Caleb's father brings them back together. Can they work through their past issues, regain their close bond, and have a chance at the future they have always wanted.

One Step Closer really surprised me, in a good way. Caleb is a passionate man with a huge heart, and his protectiveness shines when it comes to Wren. How can you not fall in love with a man like that? I love how no matter what he always puts Wren first, her happiness is everything to him. When he decided to take care of her, he does whatever it takes to make it happen. Caleb is a fighter through and through.

I love Wren's heart and determination. Watching her become the strong, independent woman from the shy, scared little child she was when she first walked into the Luxon house. I think the journey she has been on has lead her to herself. Even though she has loved Caleb for ages, she's still willing to let him go if that is what's needed to make him happy. She's never needed the money or the fame, she's only ever wanted love.

I really enjoyed this book, even if at times it was a little long winded. Kahlen was able to weave a story that is passionate, heartfelt, and full of chemistry. The flashbacks give a insight into how Caleb and Wren came to be and journey they had to take to get to this point in their lives. In addition, there are no words that can explain how much I love Jonesy. She is brilliant and a perfect mother/grandmother figure to Caleb and Wren. And even though Caleb and his father were never able to make peace while Edison was alive, I love how Caleb was able to come to terms with who his father was and why he was they way he was.

If you are looking for a second chance at first love, than One Step Closer is the book for you.

Pre-Order Blitz ~ Tru Blue by Melissa Foster




Imagine falling in love with a man, then finding out he was a killer... Tru Blue is a sexy, dark stand-alone novel written in the same loving, raw, and emotional voice romance readers have come to love, and the deeply emotional literary prose women's fiction readers have come to expect, from New York Times & USA Today bestselling, award-winning author Melissa Foster. He wore the skin of a killer, and bore the heart of a lover...

There's nothing Truman Gritt won't do to protect his family--Including spending years in jail for a crime he didn't commit. When he's finally released, the life he knew is turned upside down by his mother's overdose, and Truman steps in to raise the children she's left behind. Truman's hard, he's secretive, and he's trying to save a brother who's even more broken than he is. He's never needed help in his life, and when beautiful Gemma Wright tries to step in, he's less than accepting. But Gemma has a way of slithering into people's lives and eventually she pierces through his ironclad heart. When Truman's dark past collides with his future, his loyalties will be tested, and he'll be faced with his toughest decision yet.


"Several emotional topics -- such as drug addiction, abandonment, infertility and unexpectedly becoming a parent -- are easily woven together without making the story feel crowded or overdone. Foster writes exceptional characters that keep readers thinking long after the book is finished... The dynamic members of the Whiskey family are the foundation that holds the group together and they are exactly the reason we're taught not to judge. Let's hope we hear more from all of them!" ~ RT Book Reviews

"Sexy and Heartbreaking....I simply adored this beautifully written romance." ~ Tasty Book PR

Amazon US | UK | CA | AU


Perfect Dani Wyatt Ecover.jpg

Homeschooled and under the stifling grip of an overprotective father, Talia Fielding’s life is pretty miserable. Playing her beloved ukulele and writing songs is as close as she comes to having fun. But that all changes on the night of her eighteenth birthday. She’s invited to her first party where she learns two things: girls can be very, very mean and Griffin Stanford kisses better than any fantasy she’s ever had.

To most of his friends, Griffin Stanford is the handsome football star. However, under those good looks lies the heart of a geek. His passion for numbers has ensured him a life changing job straight out of college. The contract he’s signed has him boarding a plane to halfway around the world the morning after he meets the girl of his dreams.

The obsessive draw Griffin feels toward Talia has him questioning his life’s choices. One night, one kiss and Griffin knows this may be his one and only chance to capture the perfect girl... How can he stop her from slipping through his fingers when the world seems determined to keep these two virgins apart?

Author Note: These two fall in love instantly. If you’re looking for a filthy fantasy fix complete with a Dani-style dirty talking hero topped with heaping helpings of swoony romance, you’re in the right place. This is a standalone novella, with Kindle melting heat, safe, no cheating and filled with virgins who magically know exactly what they’re doing from the very first kiss.

perfect 1.JPG

AP new - excerpt.jpg

I’ve lost the power of speech.  She’s wearing that gorgeous little daisy-yellow nightgown dress I sent her a few weeks ago.  The soft light from behind her highlighting every contour and line of her lush body.  A body that will soon be under my tongue and in my hands.
I never dreamed I would see her like this, like she is right now.  But here she is, and it’s glorious.  I can see all her curves, the pink circles of her nipples pressing through and she’s not doing anything to cover herself.  I’ve just won the lotto and a Nobel prize, and whatever trophy they hand out when you come first in life.

“What are you doing opening the door wearing that, baby?”  I’m not sure if I’m raging mad about it or just about as thrilled as any virgin ever was.  My cock is about to snap in half, curved up and around where he can’t escape because my belt is holding his greedy, cum-dripping self in place.  “I mean,” I shake my head and rub my hands over my face trying to reset, “I’m sorry.  You are fucking stunning beyond words, but, baby, what if it wasn’t me?”

As happy as I am to see her, the jealous beast in me lights up, the thought of another man seeing what’s mine has me off my nut.

“I only opened the door after I saw who it was.  I peeked through the peephole first. It’s a sign, I know it is.  I just tried this on for the first time and here you are.  Here you are, I can’t believe it.”  She does this little bunny hop and I don’t miss how her full tits bounce and move with her, making my dick drip into my pants.  I am fairly sure I could watch that little move for the rest of my life and never, ever get tired of it.

Her hands pull at the long tendrils of hair hanging over her shoulders and I realize I haven’t kissed her yet, so I remedy that right away.

My arms pull her to me, sweep up and down her back, up and down the soft fabric that covers her equally soft body, as my lips mount hers.  I kiss her with the force of a man here to finally claim what is his, letting her know I’m here and she’s mine.  After a long kiss, I lean back to drink her in.

“I love that you are wearing this.  It means a lot to me.”  I hook my thumbs into the ruffle around the neckline and trace it up and down, my vision drifting down to where it scoops low, barely covering her ample tits and I want them in my mouth so badly it hurts.

“You must be hungry after your trip.”  Her voice flutters around my head, soft and like a dove, not quite ready to fly away.  Her breath between the words tells me I’m distracting her and I love that.

I bring a hand up to comb my fingers through her hair.  I’ve dreamed of how it would feel for so long.  Silk is like twine compared with its softness.  The black strands fall between my fingers and I’m hypnotized by the sight and feel of it.  It’s so real and I’m so fucking gone.

I taste her lips again with a quick kiss, then put my mouth next to her ear.  “I’m hungry for one thing, and one thing only right now.  That’s you, Wildflower, my mouth between your legs.  I told you, that’s the first thing I want to do to you.  I want to taste your first orgasm.  I want to remember it forever.”


Perfect is my first Dani Wyatt book and boy was I pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it.

Griffin Stanford may have the looks and the brains, but he's not someone that likes to be around a lot of people. He's a bit standoffish and the only thing on his mind is helping his parents out financially. Due to his mother's health issues, his taken a well paying job that will help them out immensely. But all that changed when he lays eyes on the most beautiful girl he's ever seen. He knows in an instant that she's the one for him, his soul mate.

Talia Fielding is like your normal eighteen year old, she's lived a very sheltered life that many bully her about. The one night she is allowed out, the night turns into something she never expected. Tormented and humiliated, she hides while waiting for her father to pick her up. The last thing she expected was to be found by the most alluring guy ever.

There chance meeting lasts only a few minutes, but it's rememberable enough to sustain them while they are apart for several months. Once they reconnect, it's all bets off. Griff will do all he can to get back to the states and finally get Talia in his arms.

Perfect is an ultra sweet, insta-love, enchanting story. Griff is smart, handsome, alpha hero that will warm your heart and have you swooning. I love how devoted he is to Talia even when they are separated. He may be dominate and possessive at times, but his heart is huge and endearing. And boy does that man know how to talk dirty. Yum!

Sure Talia is naive in a lot of ways, but I love how she tries to see the good in people. And when she commits herself to Griff, she does it with her whole heart and soul. She comes into herself with Griff's guidance and constant encouragement.

This book was delectable, a captivating page turner that I couldn't put down. Dani's writing is delightful and engaging. Who doesn't love a smutty little story about two virgins finding love and passion to last a lifetime.
