Nola Lewis needs to find a job, lose her boyfriend and train her cat, and not necessarily in that order.
Nola
My life is a complete mess. I have a sister who’s threatening to sue me, my boyfriend’s a douche who I should have dumped years ago. My neighbor’s goat is a freak and my cat is really Satan in a fur coat.
On top of all that I also desperately need a job.
When my best friend’s husband offers me a position in his company, I snap it up. What I don’t expect is to be working with the rude – and unfortunately completely gorgeous – man who sat laughing at me through a coffee shop window.
While I tried to pull my heel from a grate in the sidewalk, as it poured with rain.
I flipped him the bird while I stood glaring, but that didn’t keep him away.
Kato Black is not what I need right now, but I’m not sure my body agrees with me.
Dirty whore.
Cocky Delight is a contemporary romance inspired by Cocky Bastard.

Synopsis

“A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks.”
-Richard Bach

I’d known my soulmate, my best friend, my sister, forever. No span of distance nor time would ever change that. Even as I trudged through my colourless life. Loneliness and isolation snapping at my heels. I always had her as my North Star.

Now I know I’m going to lose her—my soulmate—and I have to learn to lean on the only man I’ve ever loved. The one who pushed me away… just to survive.
The life I once dreamed about has been washed away in a sea of regret. People from my past are appearing in my present, hoping to remain in my future. Each day I draw strength from my history.

I have to learn to live again, to have hope again and to love again.
She wants me to trust him. He wants another chance. I just want the strength to move on with my new life.

All I have to do now is take my hands off the safety bars… and have a little faith.

Synopsis

Dane has only ever loved one woman in his whole life. Nova. When he lost her everything went dark, his mind, his soul, and his life. She was his light, his heart. A decade later fate plays a cruel joke bringing them back together, only to tear them apart again, when he realises she has no idea who he is. Now he has to battle, wage war, and bring grown men to their knees to get her back. The biggest fight he faces is turning away from the darkness and letting the light in.

All Libby Burchall remembers is a mediocre life, she’s just existed for over a decade. Scared of her history and confused about who she is, the safe path is the only one she’s travelled. When a face that she can’t remember breezes in from the past, calling her Nova and looking at her like she’s a ghost, it sets off a chain reaction of emotions that she can’t ever remember feeling before. Now she can’t stop seeing his eyes, hearing his voice, and being consumed by the dark, intense and insanely beautiful man that made her feel alive.

Two shattered halves of one soul. He wants her light to illuminate the never-ending darkness. She wants to run, but something keeps dragging her back.

Can they survive each other?

Excerpt

“Oh God, yes!”
I look down at the woman between my thighs and grimace. I just wanted a fuck. A release. Not her voice splitting my skull. She thinks it’s sexy. It’s not. While I bang into her over and over again I should be building up to the few seconds of pure bliss I need right now. Not thinking about how I should have gagged her.
Leaning forward over her, I slip my hand around her throat, watching as her slender neck disappears under my palm, positioning my thumb and forefinger on each side of her jaw, holding her in place. She automatically tilts her head back slightly and opens her mouth, but this time without sound. This is turning her on, which works for me because I wasn’t about to stop. I can feel her pulse through my hand and so squeeze my fingers, tightening on each thrust in. Her eyes widen and flick to the corner of my mouth then back to my eyes. I know what she sees. It’s what they all see…the only thing I allow.
Emptiness, darkness and cruelty.
They need to know. It’s who I am.
It’s who I’ll always be.
I finish up. Pulling myself out of her and out of the bed, her eyes snap open and she stares at me.
“What are you doing?” she whines.
I look over at her while pulling my jeans on. “Going home.”
“Well, you could stay?” she asks, with a smile. “We could do that again.” Her smile turns into a smirk
“No thanks,” I reply. Mentally going over the list of things I had on me and making sure I’ve got them all before leaving.
You never come back.
Never.

Rule One—If you leave your phone, wallet, house keys, etcetera, you get new ones. New phone, new wallet—Fuck! You get a new house if you have to. But you never come back. Period.
She frowns at me, I can see her brain working. “Okay, do you want to meet up later this week?” She’s grasping at straws and is sounding desperate.
“Not gonna happen. This was tonight. Just tonight. I told you when we were at the bar. This was a one-time deal. I fuck you. I leave.” My mouth twitches. “I’ve fucked you. Now I’m leaving.”
She scowls as my eyes land on my jacket.
“You complete wanker!” she shouts.
“Not sure what you expected?” I reply grabbing my jacket and heading to the bedroom door.
“Well thanks for fucking me!” she clips angrily as I walk away.
I salute her. “Pleasure babe.” Then walk out of her bedroom and her life, and I go back to feeling the cold. In more ways than one.

What happens when you find the love of your life, then you lose them?

Pearson Amberry lost the only man she’d ever loved. She has secrets she’s kept close for many years.

When one of their friends is attacked, he realises that life is too short and he needs to move heaven and earth to try and win her heart one more time. However, when he realises the truth will he be able to deal with it, and will he still look at Pearson the same way?

What will happen when secrets are revealed, and emotions are running high? Can they move on from their past and can they recognise the love reflected in each other?

Excerpt

He puts a knee on the bed and arches his body over me with one hand above my head, then his other knee hits the bed and I’m under him and surrounded by him. He sits back on his haunches and stares at my body.
“Let me see what’s for dessert… under the wrapper.” He grins like the cat that got the cream and brings both his hands to my thighs, slipping them underneath my dress while hooking his thumbs on the edge shimmying both sides up. I feel the cool air hit my sex as the bottom of my dress passes it. He pauses and looks down. “Mmm,” he says and licks his lips. I feel myself spasm and my stomach twirl. He starts moving my dress up again and I lift my bum slightly so it can continue. When he gets to my breasts he moves his hands away from the edge of the dress, and pushes them up across my stomach until he has one hand under each breast then he stops and looks down at me again. His eyes roaming my face, he licks his lips and slips his hands over my breasts. I drag in a ragged breath and my eyes flutter closed.
“Open,” he demands and my eyes pop open to see him staring at me. “Lift your head and keep your arms by your side,” he orders. I do as I’m told. He brings my dress over my head and down my back slightly, but just when I think he’s going to slip it off my arms he stops just above my elbow.
I draw in my eyebrows and murmur, “Urm.”
Which is enough for him to say, “You won’t need your arms, not for what I have in mind,” and just the way he says it, all controlling and sexy, makes me wetter than I already am.
He prowls over me again and leans down to my ear, he whispers, “Keep your eyes on me.” Then he softly bites my earlobe and then kisses under my ear and down my neck. I keep my eyes open, although it’s hard. He knows I love my neck being kissed. He moves down to my throat and nibbles his path to my breast. Licking around my breast nearly sends me into overdrive and I have to stop myself from physically trying to force his mouth onto my nipple, not that I could because my arms are pinned, which is a turn on in itself.
Finally, his mouth moves over my nipple. His tongue circling a few times before he takes it into his mouth and sucks. He keeps it in his mouth sucking while running his tongue over the peak. I try not to squirm too much, but I’m also trying to follow his orders of watching him and it’s as hot as fuck!
He moves away from my nipple slightly releasing it from his mouth and blows gently making it pebble, he then moves over to the other one and starts sucking on that while tweaking my now wet and pebbled nipple with his fingers.
I don’t know what to watch, I feel like I’m having a sensory overload. He moves away from me down the bed, trailing his lips and tongue down my stomach, over my hips then to my inner thighs. He runs his palm down my sex and then brings two fingers back up to spread my folds apart.
“So pretty,” he murmurs, “and so wet,” he adds looking back up at my eyes. He leans down and nuzzles his face in between my folds and sucks at my centre. I catch my breath and close my eyes and I feel him move away from me, I open my eyes and look down at him staring at me. “Eyes open,” he repeats and I nod and watch him return to my centre. He licks and sucks and eats me, moving his hands under my bum cheeks and massaging them at the same time. He groans as his eyes come up and stare at mine liking that I’m still watching.
I desperately want to close my eyes and it’s going against all my natural instincts to observe him, but it’s making me so hot watching him enjoy me. Suddenly he stops and I want to moan, but my body is still overloaded with feelings, too many to make sense of anything. He stands up and pushes his jeans down and I realise that I wasn’t the only one going commando tonight as his thick cock springs to attention. He moves on the bed straddling me until he’s at my shoulders. Then he takes himself in hand and slowly rubs back and forth.
I lick my lips and watch the movements, bringing his cock head to my mouth he growls, “Open.” And I do. He moves the head across my lips and I hum with excitement which makes his hooded eyes flare and he says, “Wider.” So I open my mouth ready for him and he slides into me, I immediately suction my lips around him and swirl my tongue over his tip. His head falls backward with a groan and I stop what I’m doing.
He looks back down at me and I say, “Eyes,” around his cock, which sounds more like, “Esss.” He smirks and watches me as I once again suction him and start licking.
