Jackpot
Winning big has always been my thing. I grew up in Las Vegas in the harsh glare of the bright lights. I worked hard for everything I have, but winning at poker was my hobby. Learning to cater to the whales was my passion. Owning my own casino was my dream. But the reality is like the dead man’s hand. A jinx.
Until I saw her.
She’s everything I never knew I needed or wanted. She is sexy, tattooed, and not afraid of me. But she has no clue who I really am. She thinks I’m just a poker player. She doesn’t know that being my queen entails the royal flush. That I’ll take everything from her and more. I’ll take her dominance as my own and she will submit to me. I’ll make her mine permanently so she can’t ever leave me.
But she does and she doesn’t know the danger she’s in. What I’ll do to keep her safe. And what I’ll give up for a chance at the ultimate jackpot—her heart.

I am the shadow that moves in the night, the one that has you constantly looking over your shoulder.
I work within the bounds of the law when it suits me, but make one wrong move and I’ll throw the rule book out the window to end you.
My job requires a certain level of deception, an ability to put aside feelings and relationships to get the job done.
I can honestly say there’s not a single person alive I wouldn’t betray for the right reasons.
It’s who I am and I can’t change.
I won’t.
But there’s one woman that threatens to break me.
I knew it the moment I met her four years ago. So young and naive, it’s easy to see how a woman like her could fall for a man like me.
She doesn’t see through the lies and manipulations.
She thinks she knows the man I am, but she only sees what I allow.
I’ve done everything in my power to keep her safe from me, but now I have to do something that could nearly gut me.
I have to betray her.
I know she’ll never forgive me, but this isn’t just about the job.
Someone’s life is at stake, and unfortunately for her, his life is one I can’t allow to slip away.
She’ll never forgive me—that’s if she lives.
And I’ll never forgive myself.
But these defining moments in life are what make us who we are.
I know I’ll always be the man that will get the job done.
No matter the cost.

“Thumper, down!” I shouted, just as I fired a round into his bionic foot, forcing him to his knees as he narrowly avoided a bullet to the head.

“What the fuck? Did you just shoot me, boss?”

“It was your foot or your head,” I retorted, returning my gaze to the tangos still in the building.

“You’re paying for my new foot,” he grumbled, hobbling over to join the rest of his team.

“Send me the bill,” I muttered, already focusing on the remaining tangos.

“Eli, how many more kids need evac?”

The Ditty Boppers had been tasked with slipping in through the basement window and freeing the kids inside. We didn’t have an exact number when we started this mission, so we couldn’t be certain we had all the manpower or transportation needed.

“Boss, we’ve got a problem,” his voice rang through comms. “We’ve got about twenty that require medevac ASAP.”

“Negative. There aren’t enough birds in the sky.” I switched targets, firing again as I laid out the next part of the plan. “Fox, you copy?”

“You got someone for me to kill, boss?” he said cheerily.

“Move to extraction point B. Kid gloves, Fox.”

“Boss,” he groaned.

“Dash, take control. Rae, make sure Fox doesn’t fuck this up.”

She sighed heavily as I heard her on the move. “When is that not my job?”

I grinned and moved to the next target. I couldn’t see Jack anymore, or the rest of his team. With any luck, they made it out of the building and were aiding in the rescue of the kids.

“Boss, we’ve got movement to the south headed your way.”

“How far out?”

“Two minutes. Coming in hot, boss.”

“Do you have the shot?”

“Negative. Too much tree cover.”

I shifted to my next target and took aim. “And you didn’t see them? Were you too busy vomiting?”

“I told you I don’t like flying,” he snapped. “I would move if I were you.”

“One more minute,” I said, scoping out my next target. 

“Boss, you really need to—”

But I tuned him out and returned my attention to the remaining tangos still threatening to destroy our operation. One by one, I picked them off, missing one by just an inch and alerting him to my location. He quickly ducked and ran for cover, hiding just a few feet from the entrance to the basement. If he made it down there, my men might be injured, along with those kids. Men did stupid shit when they were cornered.

“Boss!” Scottie was yelling in my ear, but I ignored him and kept my focus. 

“Come on, you fucker,” I whispered, eyeing the man in my scope. I needed him to move just a little to the right. 

“Thirty seconds!” Scottie warned.

The man moved and I took the shot, sending the bullet right through his skull. I watched as his head snapped back and he crumpled to the ground. Removing Sally 2 from my stand, I shoved my rifle in my bag and tossed it over my shoulder, abandoning the stand to whoever came through here. Taking off through the trees, I hauled ass toward the extraction point, but quickly realized I was already too late. 

The tangos on my ass were closing in quick, and heading to the extraction point would only put more lives in danger. I made a snap decision and bolted to the left, making sure to leave an obvious path in my wake. Making enough noise to raise the dead, I grinned when I heard them following.

“Lock, I’ve got tangos on my ass. I’m leading them away. It should buy you enough time to get out.”

“Negative, boss. We’ve got too many injured.”

“How much time do you need?”

“Boss, I don’t like where you’re going with this.”

As I ran through the trees, I knew it didn’t really matter if he liked it or not. I had boxed myself in, and there was no way I was getting out of this on my own. But I could lay down fire and draw their attention from what was going on at the warehouse.

“I’ll distract them. When you’re out, I’ll haul ass to the third extraction point.”

“You’ll never make it there,” he warned.

I grinned, even though he couldn’t see. “Watch me.”

 
I’m a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, “No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book.” I didn’t think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn’t already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven’t been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.

Waking up in Vegas, not remembering what happened the night before, is probably a standard thing that happens in this town. A town filled with flowing alcohol and unmitigated debauchery is bound to lead to some memory loss.


It’s never happened to me. Until today.

Today I woke up in a hotel room in Vegas—the place that’s supposed to be my sanctuary after finding out that my boyfriend of a year was cheating on me—with a man in my bed. An incredibly sexy man with a muscular back that women would swoon for.

Until I realize . . . this hot, gorgeous man is my ex’s brother.

Oh and there’s a wedding ring on my finger.

This trip is definitely not going as expected, and this relationship will drop grenades into both of our lives.

Yet I’m starting to believe that I don’t care about the destruction, because this is the brother I’d wanted all along.

Waking up Married in Las Vegas is part of the Hot Vegas Nights series. About Hot Vegas Nights:
The Vegas Strip is the gateway to your wildest fantasies. Where debauchery rules and depravity runs rampant. Elusive billionaires, celebrity bad boys, tantalizing dancers, master mixologists, and sexy tattoo artists are all within reach.

 
 
 
 
Jessa
Waitressing part-time at a small town bar and crashing in my older brother’s guest room isn’t where I pictured myself at twenty-five. Yet, that’s where I end up after finding my fiancé buried seven inches deep in my best friend on our kitchen counter.
Needing a break from my disaster of a life, I let my brother convince me to join him in Las Vegas for a friend’s wedding. Being Sin City has me discovering things about myself that I never knew—like my apparent inability to turn down a dare.
That’s how I end up in a chair on the main stage of a strip club getting a panty-melting lapdance meant for the bride. It’s like a scene straight out of my filthiest fantasies. The dancer is sexy as sin, but being the sole focus of a man whose intense gaze burns down to the deepest parts of me has me feeling more than a little out of depth.
Hale
As an entertainer at one of the hottest male-only revue clubs on The Vegas Strip, it’s my job to fuel women’s fantasies. Despite the stereotypes about men in my profession—I’m no playboy. I don’t have a different woman in my bed every night, and I never mess around with women from the club.
It’s a night like any other when a routine dance for a bachelorette party has me locking eyes with a gorgeous woman who makes the rest of the world fall away. I’ve never felt such an intense attraction. Something about her has me wanting to break all my rules. So, when the night is over and I’m unable to get her out of my head, I promise myself I’ll shoot my shot if I ever see her again.
As if the universe is giving me a sign, an impromptu favor for a friend puts me at the wedding she’s attending the very next night. She’s only in Vegas for a short time and getting involved might end in heartbreak, but for her—I’m ready and willing to take the risk.

The son of Hollywood elite, Jagger Crawford was content to live off his parents’ fame while spending his days and nights participating in one drunken orgy after another. When it came to salacious publicity, he was a walking, talking headline. Jagger was a lost cause, or so the gossip mongers said.


Image consultant Amelia “Lia” Franks believed otherwise. Even after finding out that her first client is Hollywood’s most notorious bad boy, she is determined to do what no other has been able to do: redeem the so-called “unredeemable”.

Lia accompanies him to Las Vegas for what Jagger thinks will be a week of debauchery. Once there, though, she begins to realize there is more to Jagger Crawford than meets the eye. His larger-than-life personality is only a small part of him. There is so much more beneath the surface.

Good girls like bad boys, but that isn’t true for her. Jagger is simply a client and nothing more. Or is he? Is that half-truth as fake as the relationship they have to maintain around his friends? Or is it entirely possible that when seeking redemption, they have found something more…

Spend a couple of hot Vegas nights with Jagger and Lia to find out….

A trip to Vegas to celebrate my best friend’s wedding?
Yes, please!
I’m ready for warm weather, a little gambling, an epic bachelorette party, and, of course, being a bridesmaid for one of my oldest and best friends.
What I’m not ready for is how hot her younger brother has become. The last time I saw Corey, he was a shy, scrawny kid in high school. Now, he’s neither shy nor scrawny, he’s a successful business owner, and he’s mastered the art of flirting … mainly with me!
Don’t get me wrong––I like having a good time and I’m not opposed to having a weekend fling. But this is my best friend’s brother, not a stranger I’ll never see again. Should I give into temptation, or play it cool while we’re in Vegas?
 

 
 

 
 
When your one-night stand is your new boss…


Gia
I wasn’t much of a gambler, but on my first night in Vegas I rolled the dice with a sexy stranger. What did I have to lose? Everyone knows what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. I lived out an erotic fantasy most women only dreamed about. It was a souvenir you couldn’t buy in any gift shop. My own dirty little secret.
It was a harmless one-night affair until Mr. Tall, Dark, and Handsome wasn’t so anonymous anymore. He was my new boss. Outside of the bedroom he was a complete jerk and determined to see me fail. I desperately needed this job and so I pretended I didn’t know about the tattoos on his arms or the monster hiding in his pants. Professional was the name of the game, but… the man was hot as hell and dangerous as the devil himself.

♥♣♦♠

Trent
My self-control was marginal at best, and beautiful women were my weakness. So, when my father threatened to fire me if I had one more office fling, I committed to keeping my libido at bay. Vegas was full of lovely ladies who didn’t work at Mystique. I wasn’t about to throw away my destiny of becoming CEO of one of the biggest hotels in Vegas.
My resolve was firm until she walked into my office. I never thought I’d see the fiery redhead again, but there she was looking all tempting and desirable in her pencil skirt and silk blouse. I knew what was hiding under those clothes and it set my blood on fire. The memory of our night together played over and over like a movie I couldn’t hit pause on. There was only one solution… she had to go.

 
 
 
 

 
This pitch could make or break my career.

Not only will it set a personal record for the biggest account I’ve ever landed, but it could set my newfound company three years ahead of schedule for expansion.
Thank god I’ve got Nate Bellinger on my team.
Even though I had my reservations hiring the sexiest man I’ve ever laid eyes on – he more than meets my expectations with his hard work and determination. Together, we’ve formed a solid team and play off each other perfectly.
As we wait for the final verdict, I begrudgingly take Nate up on his offer for a night on the town. After all, this is Vegas and I need to let the chips fall where they may.
Imagine my surprise when I wake up the next morning to find we’ve not only won the campaign, but I’m apparently married to the man I’ve only ever let myself fantasize about.
The kicker of it all – he has no intentions of letting me go.
But what will it mean once we leave Vegas?

He saved her life. Now she’s in more trouble than ever…
Sebastian Hernandez, a Las Vegas paramedic, is called to tend to a fallen performer in an acrobatic performance gone wrong. When he locks eyes with the dark beauty, her gaze holds so much more than the pain of her injury, and he’s drawn to her in a way he’s never been drawn to anyone before.
Kira Luan, an aerial acrobat, is trapped in a contract that keeps her at the mercy of her controlling ex-boyfriend. While she longs for a life free to perform, to live, and to find love, fear rules her every move. So much so that it distracted her to the point of injury.
When Kira is left with little choice but to accept Sebastian’s help — and offer of a place to stay — the distance from her problems and her growing closeness with Sebastian begin to crack open the well of her suppressed desires. With him, she heals in more ways than one and finally has the strength to end the relationship with her ex.

Mummies.
Yeah, you heard me right. That’s my next job—protecting a mummy.
It wouldn’t be a problem, except someone doesn’t want this particular mummy to make it to the museum.
Not to mention one of my teammates thinks this particular mummy is cursed.
On top of this ridiculous job, I’ve also met the most gorgeous woman in the world.
Except, she’s anti-gun, anti-meat, anti-everything that makes me who I am. And she’s from California.
 
I really f*@king hate California.
And she’s a screenwriter with absolutely zero experience, writing a story with a ton of action.
No, cars do not just explode while driving down the road. And contrary to popular opinion, it really is hard to shoot out tires from a moving vehicle, especially when you’re firing into the wind.
But the worst part is how excited everyone at OPS is to help her. Fox, New Guy…even Brock has decided to take up a career in acting.
I would walk away, but despite the fact that she’s from California, I find myself needing to be with her. She’s more than she seems, and I’m determined to find out every last detail before she gets blown up trying to learn about explosives.
I just have to keep IRIS away from her.

“So, no problems on the way home?” he asked, turning to face us.

“Nope. We got away clean.”

“And that?” he jerked his thumb at the back.

I cringed slightly. “He had an…” I glanced over at Eli for the best wording.

“An adverse reaction to the mummy.”

“Right,” I nodded. 

“Like…he touched it and broke out in hives?”

“Don’t even say that shit,” Eli said quickly, keeping his voice low. “He already thinks we’re all under some ancient Egyptian curse. We don’t need to put any more thoughts in his head.”

Cash crossed his arms over his chest and looked at us inquiringly. “And why does he think he’s under a curse?”

I snorted, not even sure how to answer that. “He just started freaking out because we made him sit in the back with the sarcophagus. Then he started reading out ancient curses and it spiraled out of control from there.”

“So…nothing actually happened.”

I shot a look over at Eli, remembering the locusts. Scratching the back of my head, I told him what happened. “Well…when we left the safe house, there might have been a swarm of locusts, and he may have been under the influence of some drugs that may have led him to believe that the swarm was a hell of a lot bigger than it was.”

“How big was it?” he asked, his brows furrowed.

I shrugged lightly, but it was Eli that stepped in. “No more than a ten mile radius.”

“Fifteen at best,” I added.

“That’s…not a swarm. A swarm is literally like…around your head. Christ, no wonder he flipped out. And you hogtied him in the back of the van.”

“What the hell were we supposed to do? He was freaking out.”

“And then you laid him next to the fucking mummy,” he huffed. “Good work. You made your teammate go insane,” he said, clapping us both on the shoulders. “Remind me to never go on a mission with you again.”

He turned to leave. “Hey!” Eli shouted. “What the hell are we supposed to do with the sarcophagus?”

“Why don’t you put it in your room and sleep with it for the night. See how you feel in the morning,” he shouted over his shoulder. 

I looked at Eli, still not sure what we were supposed to do with the fucking thing. “So…your room?”

 
I’m a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, “No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book.” I didn’t think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn’t already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven’t been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.

Blurb:
Gabe

Gabriel Knorlin has spent his life protecting himself from the kind of pain no one should ever have to endure. The tragedy he survived sculpted every decision he ever made.

 

The one decision he regretted? Abagail Crawford—a woman he calls family, but one he’s kept at arm’s length. He can’t live through the pain of losing someone he loves again.

 

Only fate has kicked him in the balls and placed Abbey squarely in his lap. His only goal is to protect her from the Los Muertos cartel.

 

Her own insistence on getting herself killed aside, he’s afraid he’ll give in to his desires and it’ll cost him the only family he has.

 

Abbey

Assistant ADA Abagail Crawford finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation. A colleague was killed, and Abbey’s been given his investigation into a drug cartel and now his murder. She’s not equipped to handle it. Her specialty is white collar crime, but fake it ‘til you make it, right?

 

Her brother, of course, insists on Gabe being her bodyguard until the investigation and trial are over. Considering what happened to her predecessor, she can’t argue with him.

 

There is a problem, however.

 

She’s loved Gabe since she was twelve years old. When she confessed her feelings for him, he sister-zoned her in the most embarrassing and hurtful way. She’s avoided him like the plague ever since.

 

But now, she can’t escape the attraction. She discovers the man has feelings for her, and it’s up to her to figure out why he’s so afraid.

 

Hopefully, she can get the guy before they both end up on the receiving end of a bullet. She just has to convince one very reluctant, stubborn man they’re worth fighting for.

So who am I?

Well, I’m the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tell me to stop watching them, but who doesn’t love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.

Now, I live in a small town in West Virginia where I entertain my niece and nephew and watch the cats get teased by the birds and laugh myself silly when they swoop down and then dive back up just out of reach. The cats start yelling something fierce…lol.

I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.
