Wanted

 

Title:  Wanted
Author: R. E. Hargrave
Genre: Contemporary Romance
#Wanted

 

 

 

Hyde Johnson is an erotic audiobook performer. A ‘Read By’ byline is too plain, and ‘Narrated By’ still doesn’t capture what he does. His livelihood is his passion. Performance art, the air he breathes.
 
Which translates to a recluse who is a hot mess.
 
He’s not eating right, he’s drinking more, and his family’s meddling is making it harder to stay on task.
Being designated the guardian of her young niece Tina is the last thing Gypsy Hartford expected.
 
But when the State of South Carolina unceremoniously puts Tina in her care, Gypsy accepts it’s time to grow up and stop floating from town to town. Where does she start when she has no degree, no real friends, and no family besides Tina?
A want ad could be the answer to both their conundrums. Or it might open a whole new can of worms. Especially when you throw in a crazed author with an unhealthy obsession for her narrator.
 
 

 

 

 
 
 
 
Hargrave, while best known for her erotic, BDSM tales proves with this book that her genre limits are endless. She is a great story-teller and quite frankly, I will continue to read what she writes.
 
Well done, Ms. Hargrave!” ~ Jennifer Theriot
 
“This story was a pleasant surprise for me. What happens when you force a recluse audio narrator and a free spirit together? You have to read to find out what happens next between Hyde and Gypsy. An emotional story with characters dealing with some heavy baggage that you can’t turn away from. Looking forward to more from this author.”

Domestic engineer. Dreamer. And quite possibly certifiable.
Believing every story can shine bright with a bit of tenacious tough love, R.E. Hargrave is thorough and to the point. An international bestselling author, she takes storytelling and manuscript polishing seriously, working with her authors and on her own creations to ensure they come to life, crawling from the pages and into the reader’s souls.
 
Hargrave lives on the outskirts of Dallas, TX and is married to her high school sweetheart; together they are raising three children. A native ‘mutt,’ she has lived in New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Alabama, Texas, and California. She is fond of setting her stories–which range from the sweet to the paranormal, to the erotic and horrific–on location in South Carolina and Texas.
 
Hargrave is best known for her erotic BDSM series, The Divine Trilogy. The final book in the trilogy, Surreal, was a 2015 Golden Flogger Award Finalist with BDSM Writer’s Con. In 2017, her short novella Brooklyn Blues was also a GFAFinalist.

A rock star with demons. A manager with a secret past. Can they overcome it all and find love?
Tia
I’m no stranger to hard work.
Hell, I’m no stranger to dealing with jerks. The only good thing my relentless bullying in high school did was make me strong.
As one of the best band managers in the industry I thought I was ready to take on anything.
Then I signed mega rock star Mikey Ecosta.
He doesn’t recognize me as the shy loser from high school and I’m determined to keep it that way.
Mikey
I always get what I want.
Money, cars, screaming fans… And the women? All I need to do is flash a smile and they’re falling at my feet. As a rockstar, it comes with the territory.

At least that’s what I think, until a woman walks into my life and makes me start to feel things I’ve never felt before.

From the moment I met her, I knew she was it for me. And her daughter is the perfect little girl I never knew I needed in my life.
Can I make her see that we are destined to be a family, or will the darkness that hides behind her eyes consume her and push me away forever?

But now my new manager is lighting a fire inside me and making it hard to follow my rules.
I should push her away and build up a wall around my heart, but there is something about her that I just can’t shake. Will a relationship with her even work, or are we just destined to crash and burn?

Author: MV Ellis
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 30, 2020
Cover Design: Sarah Paige Opium House Creatives.

They think they’ve lost everything. But then they find each other. 
 
RAINE
I’m the clichéd “poor little rich boy”
I have everything I want, but nothing I need
I get high to escape the lows of my past
Yet there’s no escaping the monster in the mirror
I’ve always been about taking, until I took too much 
They paid the price, and it’s a debt I can never repay 
So I’m killing myself slowly 
Because I can’t bring myself to end it fast
NOA
I know what it is to have loved and lost
Now I’m slowly picking up the pieces of my life
I should put my needs first, but that’s not me
If someone’s broken I need to fix them
Even if I get hurt along the way
Nobody should feel like they want to die 
My love alone wasn’t enough before 
So this time I’m determined to be a reason to live

 

MV ELLIS knows what it’s like to fall head over heels in love with a badass musician. She followed her heart halfway around the world to be with one. She moved from London to Sydney after a steamy holiday romance with a sexy bass player in sultry Brazil.
 
Twelve years, two children and a dog later, and she’s still smitten. All this with a guy she sat next to on a bus for 36 hours! She has toured internationally as a ‘WAG’, and her experiences inspire her writing.
 
Ellis’ love of romance began when she was 11 years old, after a summer spent secretly reading her auntie’s books. She’s been a sucker for an alpha hero and strong heroine ever since.
 
An avid reader, Ellis always knew that she’d write a book of her own one day. She was right about that. Following a career spanning advertising, marketing, and social media, she finally wrote Catching London in 2017. She has continued to expand the Heartless Few series beyond Catching London, with releases planned through to 2020. In addition, she has launched a new four-part
 
series, Rough Ink series, set in the sexy world of a New York tattoo studio. Expect the same sexy badass guys, angst galore, witty banter, scorching bedroom scenes, and kickass sassy women; but with a whole new world, and cast of characters to get to know and love. Zed, the first book in the series launched in June 2019.

Sometimes a pack isn’t for everyone – it may even be the death of you.
All Isa wanted was to venture out on her own, without her overbearing pack breathing down her neck. Her dream comes crashing down around her when she returns home from college to find her little sister imprisoned for a horrible crime, and her own neck on the chopping block when she decides to set her free.
However, her pack offers her a stay of execution – find Brock Wolfsbane, the only wolf from her pack to ever go rogue, or be put to death.
Now Isa must hunt for the wolf whose name haunted her dreams as a pup. And, worse, even if she does somehow manage to find Brock and return him to the pack, she must mate with the new alpha, a death sentence in its own right. But the search for the wolf who never wanted to be found will soon unearth a lifetime of secrets. Her only hope is to find the lone wolf, if she wants to survive a world that is hell-bent on killing her.

I’m Jett, self-made billionaire.
I have everything I could ever want—except revenge.
Eight years ago, my best friend and I planned to start a business together…
Until I fell for his little sister.
After he found out, he stole my idea and made a fortune.
She took his side and stabbed me in the back.
Now he’s in financial straits, while I’m richer than I ever dreamed.

But now that she’s in my bed, what if it’s not animosity I feel?
What if I fall for her again?

“What’s your offer?” she demands.
“In a hurry? Why don’t we have a drink? I haven’t seen you in a long time.”
She scoffs. “Let’s not pretend I matter to you.”
I raise a brow at Whitney. She does matter…but admitting that would only weaken my position. “Humor me. After all, it’s my forty million dollars.”
“Fine.” She lifts one delicate shoulder like she doesn’t care, but I can read her. On some level, I get to her and she hates that. “Vodka cranberry. Make it a double.”
I acknowledge her with a curt nod, then I motion to the bartender, who takes our order.
“You’re not drinking with me?” She scowls.
“I never drink.” I haven’t since that summer.
Whitney’s gaze probes me for a long moment. “Because you’re a control freak?”
You have no idea.
I smile. “You can call me names and divert the subject all day. That doesn’t change why we’re here.”
“So you’re going to lend Vance forty million dollars to save his company—”
“Which should have been our company.”
“You lost that lawsuit.”
“Because your brother is a lying, thieving snake.” And you helped him, didn’t you?
She arches her dark brow at me. “Is all this charm how you’ve become so successful?”
Life has apparently roughed up my sweet princess and given her a stronger spine. I like it.
Breaking her will definitely be more fun.
“No. I’m successful because I’m ruthless.”

Is it overreacting to knock someone down for groping you? Nell Whelan is a black belt whose self-protective instincts kick in hard when she’s uncomfortable.
 
Then she arrives at her hated day job to find the handsome jerk from the pub kicking the photocopier, and finds out that he looks familiar because he’s the bass player from a famous rock band… but when she asks him what he’s doing working for her boss, he avoids answering.
 
Eamonn Yarrow — known to the rock world as “Easy” — hasn’t always been a good person and he’s reaping the consequences, but maybe Nell is just what he needs to turn his life around.

“I wasn’t sure how I would feel about Eamonn “Easy” Yarrow, but this troubled soul completely won me over! This bad boy bass player is full of arrogance and oozes sex appeal, but there is also a hidden depth and vulnerability about him that I found endearing. He has these flirty one-liners that seem to ensnare many women, but do nothing but irritate Nell.” ~ Anna’s Bookshelf
 
“I have never wanted to knee someone in the b*lls as much as I wanted to Easy. Thankfully Nell did it for us 😁. I immediately loved her ❤.” ~ Caz Bates

When Detective Nikki Jackson with the Great Oaks, Virginia Police Department calls him, accusing him of breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s house, Sean can’t help but like the sound of her voice, despite her ridiculous accusations. He’s shocked when she calls him back with an apology then asks for his help as a consultant on a case. On the phone, her sweet, slightly Southern voice captivates him.
