As the Sergeant at Arms of the Rebel Souls, I keep the peace amongst the brothers and make sure that the rules are followed. We ride hard and play even harder. What was supposed to be a routine night, turned into total chaos. The fiery redhead that I’ve longed for is suddenly taken and the dormant beast within is out for blood.

 

It’s been a long time since I’ve tortured someone. The screams of agony brought peace to my soul. They should’ve thought twice before they took her. I’m the payback that makes you regret your actions and the monster that gives you nightmares.

About Thetta James

I’ve enjoyed books for as long as I can remember. Reading allows you to expand your mind and make you say, what if? Four years ago, I became a part of the Book World as a Blogger, and The Erotic Book Review was born.

I love reading and listening to all genres, but I’m very drawn to Romance on the kinky side of things. I believe pursuing your passion brings out your creativity and allows endless possibilities to come forth. Taking a reader on a journey that forces them to crossover into your world is magic. My love for stories has inspired me to write and share my words. I hope readers enjoy them as much as I loved creating them.

I live in North Georgia, and I’ve been married to the love of my life for almost 30 years. We’re parents of 5 adults and we have 9 grandchildren. We drive a Big Rig for a living and travel the entire US. When I’m not driving, I love writing, reading, and hanging out in my Private Playroom on FB. I love meeting new people and enjoy learning about other cultures. I love watching football and binge-watching TV shows.

One quote I live by… “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending”

Dominic Price believed he had a future with Juliana Rutherford until one dark night, she goes missing, and her affluential father has him arrested for her disappearance. After spending nearly two years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit, he is acquitted and has one goal in mind – Revenge.
Whitney Greene is content with her life until a voice invades her thoughts. It is a woman, and she needs help that only Whitney can provide. Her world now off its axis, Whitney is about to be tested when sent to help the one man with the power to destroy them both.
Dominic is powerful, wealthy, and so close to exacting the vengeance he sought when a ghost from his past emerges, only she’s claiming that she isn’t the one who’d set him up for a fall before. Whitney tries convincing Dominic that she isn’t Juliana, but he isn’t fooled. The timing is too convenient and the taste of betrayal still too bitter.
Deciding to use her as an additional pawn in his deadly game, what ensues is a series of events causing each of them to question themselves, question each other, and reveals a force more sinister than either could’ve ever imagined. When the dust settles, will absolution finally be found?

Two men vie for Lady Anna, but who will she choose? The smooth politician or the down-to-earth barrister turned duke?

 

Lady Anna Ravencroft shines brightly as a much-admired organizer and hostess. In her mind it is the one thing at which she succeeds. Inwardly she is shy, retiring… a wallflower. With two failed seasons that ended in disaster she has accepted marriage might not be in her future.

 

Lord Fraser Castleton, a London barrister is shocked when he inherits a title and estate from his mother’s great aunt and becomes the 8th Duke of Willbury. He returns to Sommer-by-the-Sea to take up permanent residence. He crosses paths with his longtime friend, Lady Anna. He confides that he is the target of every mother with an unmarried daughter. She commiserates with him. Every eligible gentleman sees the Ravencroft purse rather than her. Together they decide to find a mate for each other. Anna presents him with a list of several eligible women. Castleton is receptive, but not enthusiastic. He gives her the same reaction with the subsequent two lists. Will she realize he has already found his match?

 

Reginald Younge who doesn’t always play by the rules wants to be the next Member of Parliament for his borough. His political backer will support him if Younge can finance the campaign himself. He suggests Younge find a wealthy wife to support his political plans. Marrying a Ravencroft would all but guarantee not only his backer’s continued support but provide the steady stream of money needed to claim his place amongst the gentry. He calls on Lady Anna for assistance with a campaign event and has an ulterior motive.

“Lady Anna. Lord Castleton. Welcome to the Tea Room.” Tanya took off her apron and set off a small cloud of flour as she put the pinnie down on the counter.

 

Anna glanced around the dining room. An older couple sat at the only other occupied table.

 

Castleton helped her into her chair as Tanya made her way to the front of the tearoom. He turned to her with his irresistibly devastating grin.

 

Anna busied herself by removing her gloves and putting them into her reticule, then placing it on her lap all to avoid his gaze. When she could no longer stall, she raised her head and found him sitting across from her and still staring.

 

What should she say? It was as if she didn’t know this man when they had been friends most of their lives. Well, she certainly didn’t know him as a military man, a barrister, a duke, and especially not as someone courting her. All she

knew was the boy with whom she grew up and in a moment of panic, she wanted to leave.

 

“I didn’t intend to embarrass you. I can’t help the way I look at you.” His elbow was on the table with his chin in his hand. “One glance and I find myself smiling.”

 

He removed his hand and struck a more proper attitude, opened his serviette, and draped it on his lap.

 

Was he playing his part? She glanced at the couple at the other table and concluded he was courting her for their sake. Perhaps she could play the game as well.

 

“You flatter me, Fraser,” she gracefully placed her hand to her throat. “Or should I say you flatter yourself if you think I’m embarrassed.” She sat up straighter and looked down her nose following propriety. For two Seasons she observed and

learned as girls struck that position.

 

“Oh?” He dared to struggle to hide his chuckle.

 

“Ginger biscuits, really, Fraser. I would have thought you’d had your fill as a boy and moved on to other more tempting morsels.”

 

He leaned closer toward her. His eyes were even more passionate than they had been moments before. He took her hand and her breath caught.

 

“Oh, but I am moved by a more temping… morsel. Much more tempting. Would you like me to elaborate?” With that he raised her hand to his lips.

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Tropes: Accidental Pregnancy, One-Night Stand, Age Gap, Best Friend’s Brother, Opposites Attract, Billionaire Hero, Fake Dating, Blackmail
Cover Design: MSB Design – Ms Betty’s Design Studio

He was my best—and worst—mistake…
All I wanted was one night. A single, hot encounter with the sexy stranger who made me feel things I’d never felt before. What could possibly go wrong?
Everything.
Turns out my one-night stand, Hugo St-John, is also my best friend Ethan’s estranged brother. And that’s not the worst of it.
Because my best friend? He’s also my fake fiancé.
We have our reasons for the deception, most of which revolve around family drama.
And none of that matters to Hugo. Now that he knows who I am, he hates me. We went from lovers to enemies in a heartbeat.
I wish I could say that was the end of it. But I can’t.
Especially not now that I’m pregnant…

“She’s not like that. Ava—she didn’t think! She’d never had casual $ex with random strangers before,” he added, his cheeks reddened with anger. Who knew…my brother had balls after all.

She rested a soothing hand on his shoulder.

“Ethan—”

“Oh, now she’s Saint Ava?” I pointed an accusing finger toward her. “Tell you what, she wasn’t that much of a saint when she was on her knees sucking my c@ck like it was her favourite candy bar.”

On top of being an International Bestselling Author, I’m a trained lawyer, world traveller, coffee addict, and cheese aficionado.
When I’m not busy doing all my lawyerly mayhem or writing Contemporary Romance with heart, heat and a little darkness, alpha heroes and strong heroines and because I’m living in rainy (yet beautiful) Britain, I mostly enjoy indoor activities such as reading, watching TV, playing with my crazy puppies.
I hope my stories will make you dream and will bring you as much joy as they brought me by writing them.
