Synopsis:

Teague O’Malley hates pretty much everything associated with his family’s name. And when his father orders him to marry Callista Sheridan to create a “business” alliance, Teague’s ready to tell his dad exactly where he can stuff his millions. But then Teague actually meets his new fiancée, sees the bruises on her neck and the fight still left in her big blue eyes, and he decides he will do everything in his power to protect her.
Everyone knows the O’Malleys have a dangerous reputation. But Callie wasn’t aware of just what that meant until she saw Teague, the embodiment of lethal grace and coiled power. His slightest touch sizzles through her. The closer they get, though, the more trouble they’re in. Because Callie’s keeping a dark secret—and what Teague doesn’t know could get him killed.

Excerpt

“There’s always good and bad, all mixed together.”
“Exactly.” He finally looked at her, pinning her in place with his gaze. “Though I’ll admit there’s more good to this situation than I would have expected.”
Desire rose up in a tidal wave that had shivers working their way through her body. Good lord, the man knew how to turn a conversation into something else entirely with a single look. She reached for her wine again, only to find the glass empty. Keep it together, Callie. You know how to flirt.
Yes, she did. But this wasn’t harmless flirting. Nothing about Teague was harmless. He saw too much. He was an O’Malley. And, perhaps most importantly, he was going to be her husband in a very short time.
He seemed to realize her mind was going a million miles a second, because he sat back, breaking the moment. “Now I have a question for you.”
“Yes?” She put as much nonchalance into her tone as she possibly could. The candlelight played along his cheekbones and jaw, the shadows dancing over his cheeks, following a path her fingers itched to trace. What was wrong with her? She should be focusing on what their next move was, not on how intimate it was to sit this close to him.
“Would you have actually married Brendan if someone hadn’t done you the favor of offing him?”
She looked into his dark eyes and couldn’t lie. “No.” That man was a monster. She might regret the events that had brought her to that horrible strip club and put a gun into her hands, but once she knew the truth about him, she never could have signed her life away to him. And if it took her all of a week to find out what kind of man he was, Papa should have known a long time ago. She shifted, the realization sitting like a block of concrete in her stomach. Had he known and gone forward with the engagement anyway?
He must have. There was no other explanation.
“Which begs the question—are you planning on marrying me?”
It shouldn’t be different—Teague was just as much a stranger as Brendan had been. But it was different. Even knowing him such a short time, she couldn’t shake the belief that he’d never raise a hand against her. That didn’t mean she could trust him, though, unexpectedly revealing information or not. He was loyal to his family first and foremost, the same way she was.
She wanted Teague, and a part of her that didn’t have a lick of sense thought she could trust him. That, more than anything else, made him a potential threat in a way that Brendan never could have been.
“That’s quite the proposal, Teague O’Malley.”
He grinned, completely unrepentant. “I plan on making up for the lack of originality in other ways.”
It was all too easy to imagine exactly the sort of thing his tone suggested. It took her back to that alley, to that kiss, to her desire for more. Callie reached across the table and snagged his whiskey, lifting it to her lips with a shaking hand. “Yes, Teague. I’ll marry you.”

Synopsis

STORM (noun)—a turbulent disturbance; a disruption or dispute.

Jake Wethers’s life is perfect. He’s married to the woman he’s always loved, and they have three beautiful children. The Mighty Storm is still going strong, and his record label is thriving.

Jake has everything—a life he thought he would never have and one that he didn’t think he deserved.

Not so long ago, Jake’s life wasn’t perfect. The unexpected and untimely death of his best friend, Jonny Creed, sent an already out-of-control Jake spiraling down further.

Drug addiction. Alcohol. Women.

Jake was in the fast lane to following Jonny to the grave until Tru Bennett walked back into his life and changed everything.

But now, the past that Jake left behind has come back to find him. And what the past brings with it is going to be one of the biggest challenges he has ever faced.

The Storm Teaser


Excerpt

I’m just mid piss when I hear my baby girl’s sleepy voice from behind me, “Dada, why I not have a peenis?”

Shifting to the side so that I’m covering myself from Belle’s view, I glance over my shoulder, a chuckle escaping me. “’Cause you’re a girl, Beauty.”

“But I wanna be a boy, like you, JJ, and Billy.” She juts her lips out, pouting. “I wanna peenis!”

She’s standing there, demanding a penis, in her Disney princess pajamas, with her arms folded across her chest, her foot tapping.

God, she is exactly like her mother. Not that Tru ever wanted a cock—well, aside from mine inside her, of course.

But Belle has Tru’s steely determination, and she looks exactly like her mother, which means trouble for me when she’s older.

But like I know how to handle my wife’s temperament, I know how to handle Belle.

“Okay, Beauty, how about this?” I say in a pacifying tone, holding in my laughter. I tuck myself back into my pajama pants and go to wash my hands. “Why don’t you ask Santa for a penis for Christmas?” The second that I’ve said it, I know that it sounds all kinds of wrong. It’s so wrong that I wish to God I could take it back.

“Santa, give me a peenis!” Belle starts squealing, jumping around and clapping her hands.

“Fuck. Shit! No!” I panic as soon as the words leave my mouth, knowing exactly what Belle is like.

A goddamn parrot is what she’s like.

“Fuck! Shit! Santa, peenis!” Belle starts to mimic, hands still clapping together.

Crap. Tru is going to kill me. Kill me dead.

“Christ.” I cover my face with my hands. “Belle, no.”

I reach down and pick her up. She wraps her little chubby legs around my hips, her hands clutching at my neck.

“Don’t say those words. Bad words.” I touch my fingertip to her nose, staring into her big brown eyes—Tru’s eyes.

“Fuck. Sh—”

“Bad words,” I reiterate, giving her a serious look. “We do not repeat those words. Ever. And especially not in front of Mommy. Okay?”

“So, Santa gimme peenis if I say no bad wowds?”

“Oh God,” I groan.

“Santa! Peenis!” She giggles.

“Breakfast, Belle!” I exclaim. “You want some Frozen cereal?” I say to distract her.

That fucking annoying Disney film is her favorite, and she will only eat that particular brand of cereal.

“Fwozen!” she shrieks.

Then, she launches into the chorus of “Let It Go” as I carry her out of the bathroom, heading downstairs to the kitchen where my tribe should be.

BLOG TOUR ~ STAR: A Stepbrother Romance by Davida Lynn and Elliott Kane

Cover (3)

D (29)

Star by Elliott Kane with Davida Lynn

Jill: I know what he does for a living. I’m the only one in our family who knows what he does for a living, but I can’t tell anyone. How do you tell someone that your step-brother is a porn star?

Cash: I knew exactly what I was doing to Jill all those years: I was teasing her without mercy. There was nothing more powerful than turning on your step-sister and then shutting her down when she wanted me most. Now I don’t think I can say no…

Five years is a long time to be gone, but the memories and the desire are as fresh and real as ever.

“I know you don’t just live a playboy life on my father’s money. Let’s leave it at that.” I stared him down, forcing myself to keep eye contact. Cash’s chest moved up and down, his muscles dancing before my eyes, like they were trying to hypnotize me.

His smile grew wider. “Let’s not leave it at that. Jill, I sincerely think you should go on.” Cash pushed himself up until he was sitting upright at the head of my bed. His hands moved down to his lap, as if he was trying to draw my eye between his legs. It worked.

“Just leave.” I could feel my plan backfiring. I wanted to get dressed and maybe get out of the house for a little bit.

“No. This is way too much fun.”

I clenched and unclenched my jaw. Cash’s eyes traveled to my laptop, then back to me. “I just needed to forward someone an email. Figured I could pop on your computer real quick. You really should password protect it, you know. Lots of people out there who would just love to get into your private files.”

My heartbeat was so loud in my ears. He knew. My head was shaking just slightly, as if saying no would make it all go away. He knew.

I didn’t have any power. I don’t know why I thought that. He had it the entire time. Cash slid his legs off the bed. The dark denim against his olive-tanned skin was too much. My eyes went wide as he stood up, his body looking so massively taller than mine.

“Say it.” His words were nothing more than a whisper.

My head moved side to side. “Say what?”

“We both know. Say it.”

His voice. There was something about it that was just so demanding. I’d heard it before. I’d heard it when we were growing up, and I’d heard it on his videos. He was always in control in his scenes.

My voice was quiet, meek, and under his control. “I…I know what you do.”

Cash’s smile got wider, like he’d broken into a bank vault.

“You’re damn right you know what I do.” That voice wasn’t Cash’s. At least not the Cash I knew. It was Cash Money. It was that arrogant, hyper-sexual porn star that I had gotten off to more times than I could count. It wasn’t my step-brother in front of me, anymore. It was a shirtless man with the best cock in the business.

I didn’t think my heart could beat any faster, but it kept surprising me. When I was afraid, I felt that heartbeat in my neck, but I wasn’t afraid, anymore. I felt that heartbeat between my legs. Blood was rushing to my hot and bothered pussy, and I knew he was getting me wetter.

In the shower, the fantasy of Cash got me wet, but I was standing right in front of him, only wearing a robe, and I admitted that I knew about his job. I was dying for release, and I could feel the wetness on my thighs.

His eyes narrowed in, “Tell me. Say it out loud.”

This is what it’s like. This is what it’s like to be taken. I’d been to third base, but it was nothing like this. Just hearing Cash’s words made me feel like I wasn’t a virgin anymore. He had taken me, and made me his. He didn’t know it, but I always been his. I had always been his for the taking, and now it was time.

He repeated, “Say it out loud.”

“You’re…” I stammered the words, “You’re a porn star. You’re a porn star.”
