About Captivated by the Light:

Determined to live life on her terms, Jenna Lachlan

focused her energy on growing her business all the while

flying under the radar, but fate had other plans.

Insert the sexy, assertive, and captivating Cameron Rijker

into the fold, and the stakes just got higher. He pushed

her buttons, decimated her comfort zone, and made

her yearn for a life she long since vowed wasn’t

in the cards.

Their attraction was immediate, their chemistry

undeniable, and their connection unparalleled.

However, beneath the surface remained a secret so

big that Jenna would go to any lengths to keep

hidden no matter the cost.

The only downside to anonymity was that you could

never fully trust anyone but yourself.

Title: Blindsided by Darkness

Release Date: September 15th


About Blindsided by Darkness:

With everything Jenna had worked toward at risk,

yet everything she’d ever dreamed of to gain, she had

to decide if Cameron jeopardizing her trust was

worth the risk of letting her guard down.

Getting involved with another man was never part of

her plan. However, Cameron wasn’t just any other man.

He was the one. He was an unexpected ray of light

in an otherwise darkened existence.

So, when Jenna’s past and present collide, and viable

threats emerge from the shadows, she finds herself

fighting for the future and a life she hadn’t believed

she was worthy of until Cameron showed her what

it meant to be truly loved.



Title: Darkness to Light

About Darkness to Light:

When Jenna’s past was called into question, truths

uncovered, and a stunning secret revealed, her world fell

apart in the most earth-shattering of ways.

One so devastating and profoundly painful, there

was no escaping the hollowness that would remain

in her heart until she righted the wrongs of the past.

While Jenna was no stranger to a blindside, nothing

would stand in her way as she fought to reclaim the

life she rightfully deserved. However, being

confronted by one’s worst nightmare, meant her

fortitude would face the ultimate test.

The problem with putting your life on the line was not

everyone would walk away unscathed.



Exclusive Excerpt:

“So back to an earlier conversation of ours, about you not being worth the hassle. Tell me, do you always make a habit of running from men actively trying to pursue you, or is it just me?”

“It’s just you.”

“Just me you run from, or I am the only man currently pursuing you?”

“Both.” I broke our eye contact, casting my eyes down to his chest.

He released my hand from his grasp and, with featherlight touches, ran the back of his fingertips down the side of my face until he reached my chin. Once your eyes met again, he whispered, “What has you so spooked?”

“I don’t trust myself around you,” I blurted without hesitation, completely surprised by my honesty.

“Have I done or said something specific to make you feel that way?”

I shook my head no. “It’s just . . . I’m not sure I’m the right girl for you.”

His hand slipped from my chin and caressed my back. “Shouldn’t I be the judge of that?”

“You can’t control my thoughts on the subject, Cameron. I’m not comfortable with the idea of submission,” I whispered, careful not to let anyone hear. “I know you promised we’d take it slow—” My voice wandered off, along with my justification as to why we couldn’t be together.

“Jenna, I’d like for you to trust me when I say I want the chance to get to know you better. I’m willing to negotiate my terms.”

“Negotiate?” My body language abruptly became standoffish. “Do you want to date me, or are these new terms you’re introducing into our business deal?”

“I find myself drawn to you in a way I can’t explain but I’m sure you’ve already pieced that together. You also aren’t the only one who is being cautious here.” His grip tightened behind my back when the bartender arrived with our drinks. He glanced his attention back to me and his hands gravitated to my hips, holding me close.

I pressed my lips into a shy smile as a slight giggle escaped me. Honestly, what did I have to lose? Well, everything, but for reasons beyond my comprehension, I seemed to be willing enough to hazard getting caught up in his web of seduction, despite the risks that drove my fears.

There was no denying Cameron was in my head as my thoughts filled with him taking my body to new unimaginable heights, a mental image that left me blushing in heat.

“Whatever you’re thinking about, Jenna, don’t stop. I hope that brilliant smile has something to do with me because I’d love to make you smile like this more often.”

I took a deep inhalation in and out and bit my lip as I gazed up into his gorgeous honey brown eyes. With my hand on his shoulder, I pushed up on my tiptoes and brushed my lips across his cheekbone to his ear. He was the breath of fresh air I needed in my life, the wind in my sails, and the flutter that caused my heart to skip a beat.

“If you’re lucky, I might enlighten you one day.” His jaw twitched against my cheek, and the corners of my lips lifted in response.

Release Blitz: A Reunion of Rivals by Reese Ryan




Sparks in the boardroom
and the bedroom…

She can’t let anything derail her passion project,
Not even a second chance with the sexiest man alive…

The deal that could bring Quinn Bazemore’s career back from the brink has one catch: she must partner up with her ex-lover Max Abbott. Quinn can’t forget the pleasure-filled summer they shared. But now she’s butting heads over business strategy with the mouthwatering marketing VP, even as their reawakened desire threatens to expose her deepest secrets…






As soon as the door closed behind his sister, Quinn turned to him and scowled. “Why would you give everyone the impression something is going on between us?”

He tried not to take her words personally, but damn if it didn’t feel like she’d kicked him in the teeth wearing a pair of steel toe boots.

There was a time when her greatest desire had been for them to go out on a proper date and let the world see them together. Rather than sneaking around and hooking up in his shabby little loft over the barn or in the bed of his truck, parked beneath the stars.

Heat stung his cheeks as he jammed his hands into his pockets. “They probably assume I want to talk about the project or catch up with an old friend.”

He pretended not to notice the way she pressed her lips together and furrowed her brows when he referred to them as friends.

Damn. Is there a draft in here?

The chilly vibe coming from his ex was all too real.

“And I really would love to catch up at some point. But first, I need to tell you just how sorry I am.”

“No.” She shook her head, her tousled beach waves swinging gently.

He curled the fingers still shoved into his pockets into tight fists. Max couldn’t help remembering how he’d sifted the soft strands through his fingers as she had lain in his arms. And the dreamy way she’d gazed up at him after they’d made love.

There was nothing remotely romantic about the frosty look Quinn cast in his direction from beneath her long, thick eyelashes.

“No, you won’t allow me to apologize to you, or no, you’re not willing to accept my sincere apology?” He sat on the edge of the conference table.

“Both.” Quinn folded her arms, her expression neutral. Despite the iciness that slid over his skin in response to her answer, her tone and expression betrayed no anger. “A—I don’t want your apology. B—There’s no need for it.”

Heat spanned his forehead. Max had imagined having this conversation with Quinn dozens of times. He’d envisioned anger, forgiveness and lots of incredibly hot makeup sex. What he hadn’t foreseen was Quinn standing here calm, callous and completely out of fucks to give.

Not that he didn’t deserve it.
