About the series…

The Walker Brothers…

Tall, dark, and deadly, these three brothers run Walker security. Each brother is unique in his methods and skills, but all share key similarities. They are passionate about those they love, relentless when fighting for a cause they believe in, and all believe that no case is too hard, no danger too dark. Dedication is what they deliver, results are their reward.


Royce Walker, a former FBI Agent, who’s opened a private security firm with his brothers, has always had the hots for the prim, proper Assistant District Attorney, but considered her hand’s off because of a family connection. However, when danger threatens Lauren, he isn’t willing to stand by and watch her get hurt. Now the passion for survival is only rivaled by the passion burning between them. And that passion, might just be the death of them both.

Dangerous Secrets — Luke and Julie’s story!
72,000 words!

Being a divorce attorney for the rich and famous isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Julie Harrison has learned that love doesn’t last, and she’s sworn never to make the same mistakes as her mother, or her clients. She uses the games men play to keep them at a distance. The only man who managed to break down her walls was Luke Walker, a Navy SEAL who loved her and left her, and changed her forever.

When Luke arrives back in New York, running Walker Security with his brothers and having left his Navy SEAL days behind, he sets his sights on Julie, the woman he’s always wanted and couldn’t have. Except, she runs from him every time he gets close.

But now, one of Julie’s clients, a powerful judge, gets involved with a dangerous cartel, and his soon-to-be-ex wife ends up dead. Julie’s next on the list, and she finds herself on the run from those who believe she knows too much, and counting on Luke to keep her alive. In the deepest, darkest moments of the night, passion will bring them together while danger threatens to tear them apart. Can Julie and Luke trust each other and find their happy ending before they find … the end?

About Secrets Exposed: Her enemy is her passion, her passion is her enemy…
Lindsey Paxton was once the number one defense attorney in New York. She fought for those who were innocent, but charged. Her instincts were her lifeline, never failing her, as they guided her in her choices of who to defend. Or so she thought. Until she won a case she would forever wish to have lost. Her client, an accused rapist, kills and rapes a woman only a day after being set free. Destroyed by her role in the woman’s death, Lindsey blames her father’s controlling ways for what she has become, and runs from her career and life. Years later – the past becomes the present, and one man, her enemy, the only one she can turn to.

A threesome for 99c (and by threesome I mean three books, not the other threesome)

Soul Stripper Katana CollinsSoul Stripper by Katana Collins . $ 2.99

From the Jacket Copy:

It’s called Sin City for a reason. Nowhere else are the temptations so great, the sex so good, and the demons so bad. . .

By day, Monica is a barista in a local café. It doesn’t pay a lot but it puts her up close and personal with her sexy boss, Drew. Unfortunately that’s as far as a succubus can go unless she wants to take his soul. Monica needs mind blowing sex to sustain her and she finds her victims every night at a local strip club where she’s an exotic dancer. But when her powers begin to diminish and her fellow succubi start turning up dead, all bets are off. Monica realizes she’s the one immortal who has a chance in hell of making things right. . .

“Sexy, dark, and imaginative. . . Will leave readers on their knees begging for more!” –Logan Belle

This book contains adult content

Published on May 28, 2013 by Kensington. I have to say that while the book might be about a stripper there isn’t much about the cover that appeals to me but it does sound like she is a genuine succubus which is good, right?

Moranthology by Caitlin MoranMoranthology by Caitlin Moran. $ 1.99

From the Jacket Copy:

The follow-up to Caitlin Moran’s breakout hit, How to Be a Woman—A hilarious collection of award-winning columns, available to American readers for the first time ever.

Possibly the only drawback to the bestselling How to Be a Woman was that its author, Caitlin Moran, was limited to pretty much one subject: being a woman. Moranthology is proof that Caitlin can actually be “quite chatty” about many other things, including cultural, social, and political issues that are usually the province of learned professors or hot-shot wonks—and not of a woman who once, as an experiment, put a wasp in a jar and got it stoned. Caitlin ruminates on—and sometimes interviews—subjects as varied as caffeine, Keith Richards, Ghostbusters, Twitter, transsexuals, the welfare state, the royal wedding, Lady Gaga, and her own mortality, to name just a few. With her unique voice, Caitlin brings insight and humor to everything she writes.

Moran is controversial, not just for her version of feminism, but her statements on transgendered people. I’ve never read her and it’s hard for me to provide any knowledgeable assessment on this issue.

Beauty and the Wolf by Marina MylesBeauty and the Wolf by Marina Myles. $ 1.99.

From the Jacket Copy:

Dynamic and sensual, paranormal readers will gobble up this sexy read.” –Donna Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Midnight’s Warrior

“Beauty and the Wolf is a deliciously dark retelling of the classic tale that will make you fall in love all over again.” –Erin Quinn, author of The Five Deaths of Roxanne Love

A Union Of Curses

Isabella Farrington’s marriage was hasty. For all her new husband’s riches, Lord Draven Winthrop is whispered about, avoided, and feared. Yet Isabella is drawn to Draven’s dark good looks, his strength, the charm he can turn on as easily as she can blink. The impoverished daughter of an Egyptologist, she knows there are rumors about her, too, and the amulet she wears. Nothing more than superstitious babble. . .

But when Isabella returns to Draven’s remote coastal manor, she senses there is something more at work in the grim gardens of Thorncliff Towers than superstition. Draven is passionate and seductive, but he has a brutal, uncontrolled side too, and a history of secrets. To live in peace she must discover the reasons behind a gypsy curse and a mother’s scorn. Especially when she learns Draven believes his sweet young bride is doomed to a fate even darker than his own. . .

    I bought the Tall Dark and Deadly box set last time it was on sale and enjoyed all three books. The 4th book- Blake’s story- came out in 4 parts so I waited until it was published in one book. Looking forward to reading Beneath the Secrets soon.
