BLURB:

“Protecting her life is my job, but I made a grave error. I fell madly in love with her best friend.”

Auden 
In a quest to forget my ex left me to marry a man, I turned to a few flings. Okay, more than a few, but I dare anyone to judge me after the life I’ve endured. Then, a one night stand gets a little blurry in the emotions department. He’s muscular, smooth talking, and the chemistry is so hot that thinking about him makes me buzz. The catch is he can only commit to a one month fling. It’s so good, I agree, but it’s obvious there’s something between us that can’t be ignored. His secrets are deep, and I don’t want to get burned again yet, walking away is impossible.

Beck
I spend one month on duty guarding my Principal, and one month off letting loose. That’s my schedule, and I’m okay with it until I meet her. The night we meet is a little fuzzy, but our connection is not. When I wake up in the morning and discover my life-altering one night stand is my Principal’s best friend, I know I’m doomed, but I make excuses to keep Auden for as long as I can. That is until both their lives are in danger and I can only save one. 
My duty and honor, or the woman who I’ve fallen mercilessly for? 

Always protect the heartbeat.

THE LIES YOU LOVE PROLOGUE

If you don’t want spoilers, stop here! Turn back! The Lies you Love releases on February 3rd, and I’m so excited to share this story with you. It’s action packed, it’s SMOKING HOT, and it will take you on a rollercoaster of emotions. I’ve never shared this much before a release before, so stop now if you don’t want to be on the edge of your seat. Without further ado, HERE IT IS. The Prologue from THE LIES YOU LOVE. It releases everywhere on February 3, and Preorder links are below. Let me know what you think! I can’t wait to share Auden and Beck’s story with you.

Prologue

Beck

The bar is wrecked. Tables and chairs are tipped, cracked, and missing legs—the whole dining area of Silver Moon looks as if a tornado ripped through it. A song from the fifties made popular again by an app where teens fumble around dancing, is blaring through the sound system. As the heavy glass door swings closed behind me, dust gusts forward, sliding across the sticky wooden floor. It’s ghostly and eerie for a place that’s typically sloshing with life. Of course, I’ve prepared for this scenario countless times, but a chill of premonition slips across my skin forcing my stomach to turn. 

A woman’s soft cry trickles through during a low beat in the music, and I realize the music is just as nefarious as what’s taking place in the back room. The catchy tune is playing to cover the mayhem that awaits me. I left my apartment in a rush, so I don’t have my automatic weapon, the one that would lend me the upper hand in any situation. Reaching behind my back, I pull out my sidearm, a simple pistol. The backup gun. Another roil from my stomach, except this time it’s audible. Pressing my back against the wall of the bar, I make my way, stepping over broken liquor bottles. Another moan forces my feet to move quicker. My heart pounds, and I curse it. I was reliable. I was a stealthy, slick killer. A protector without any weaknesses. That was another life, though. I fell in love, and it destroyed my entire world. It gave me a weakness so great I never thought it possible. 

“Come in and join the party,” a man calls, knowing full well I’ve arrived. There aren’t backups to call at this point. I sent them away, but again, that was before I knew everything. Now it’s all different, and I can’t change it. I can only face it head-on and lean into my training. The tiny plastic cardinal in my back pocket hurts as I push my weight back. A reminder of the happiest period of my life is now a pain in my ass. Literally. 

There’s a black room-dividing curtain at the end of the bar, and I slide it aside to peer into the room. There’s a spotlight, no, a skylight that is beaming light from the rooftop garden down onto two folding chairs. Sitting in those chairs are two women. One I have sworn my life to protect, and the other, well, she’s the reason I’ve become weak. It’s the woman I’m madly in love with. They’re bloody. Red stains saturating their clothing and sections of hair, heads tilted down, hands and feet bound to the chair, and their bodies are… lifeless. My breathing speeds as I take another step into the room, trying to see if there are any signs of life. A finger twitching, a chest rising or falling—anything to indicate I haven’t failed them completely. It’s one thing to fail the woman I love, the woman who I would do anything for, but it’s quite another to let my Principal, the woman I’ve sworn to protect at all costs, die on my watch.
He steps into the light, the malevolence shining in his bright blue eyes. 

“Don’t worry, mate,” Hudson deadpans, stretching a long silver sword out and putting it under both their chins. “They’ve had a ton of drugs. The good stuff. They aren’t even remotely aware of what planet they’re on right now.” He raises the sword, lifting their chins, so their faces are visible. This is the moment I should raise my gun and shoot him in his face, but I can see how sharp the blade is because rivulets of blood begin dripping down their necks from where the sword’s edge rests under their chins. My heart thuds. He’d kill them before the bullet hit his body. 

“We’re going to play a game,” he says, pretending to stumble but holding the sword steady. My eyes are locked on them, on his weapon, trying to formulate a plan that would free them both with the least damage, but I come up blank. Feelings and duty cloud my judgment. I shouldn’t care anymore, but the pull is strong. 

I don’t look at him; I can’t. “What game?” I say, but it comes out as a whisper. “What do you want?” 

“You know what I want, Beck, but you took it from me,” Hudson says, his Australian accent thick. “And it seems she is gone for good now, back to her happy life.” He looks over at the women, and his hand holding the sword shakes—just barely. Taking things from people is dangerous business. Taking people from people, well, even I know that’s not a possibility. Hearts are tricky things. They’re also the reason I’m so fucked right now. 

“Put the sword down,” I counter, terrified he’s going to hit an artery. “Put it down carefully,” I amend. Their heads are deadweight, so they’re leaning into the blade. Any slight movement will mean a grave fate. “Be rational. We can talk about this.” 

“It’s too late for talking. I’ve already promised the Rifts I’d take care of this mess. Do you know how much they’d pay for them? This kind of quality?” Hudson lowers the sword, and their heads fall forward, chins to their chests, except now there’s even more blood. My pulse hammers. “You’ve made me so upset I’m willing to forgo the payday and make you choose which one they’re getting.” 

“What?” I take a step toward him. 

“Put the gun down, Beck, and don’t come any closer. Let’s make a deal!” He rubs the handle of the sword between both of his hands like a giddy child unable to sit still. His pupils are large and dilated, and I know he’s on something, too. “Actually, it’s your only option.” 

I crouch down and set the gun on the floor. He tells me to kick it away, and I do. 

“What’s the deal?” I ask, losing my breath as I see a deep cut on Ramsey’s thigh. I have to tell myself she can’t feel it because she’s probably coked out of her mind. “What’s the fucking deal, Hudson?” 

He tsks me. “First things first, don’t talk to me like that. I’m the one in control. You’re just a weak piece of shit who couldn’t keep his head on straight. How upsetting it must be for you. To be this bad at your job? To have the reason you’re in a tough spot be because you couldn’t help yourself. You just couldn’t!” Hudson is amusing himself with my poor decisions. He’s being truthful, at least. This is all my fault. I wasn’t careful enough. I didn’t handle my relationships in a methodical way. The carelessness trickled in the moment I opened my heart. 

“What’s the deal?” I ask again. 

He dances a little, whipping the sword in the air, so it makes a whooshing slice noise. “Did you know I trained as a ninja? In the mountains of Japan for a decade. I didn’t have exposure to the outside world,” Hudson says. “That means I could kill them both before you take another step if I wanted to.” More sword slicing cuts the music, except now he’s doing it to the beat while thrusting his hips. He is a motherfucking psychopath. 

“It makes sense you’d have some sort of skill they wanted.” 

Slinging drinks as the new bartender was always a cover. I knew that. He knew I knew that. What I wasn’t sure of was what exactly his part was inside the Rift’s elaborate crime ring that’s unfolded before my eyes. As I watch his dance moves, I realize he is a maniacal hermit henchman who got burned by a woman. Hudson doesn’t have fundamental personal people skills. This is the outcome of the decade he was shuttered away practicing ninjitsu. Hudson has to be the distraction. I glance behind me, desperate to be right. That would mean there’s someone logical here I could reason with. Hudson’s handler. There’s no one, though. 

“I’m ready to make a deal.” 

His eyelids lower to slits. “Like you have another option?” 

He dances forward, dragging the blade across and in front of him. His sword skills are impressive; I give him that. “Tell me.” 

“One of them leaves here alive, with you, right now. To be sold when we catch her on another day, the other one dies. Right here, right now. As you walk away from her.” 

My heart pounds and my pulse ricochets in my ears. My blood, hot and filled with adrenaline, pumps quicker than it ever has. 

“The fun part is you get to choose, Beck. You tell me which one of these best friends gets to live. I could easily sell them both, but watching this unfold is my wildest dream come true.” 

I can’t look at her. I have to concentrate on Ramsey. Ramsey’s heartbeat. Always protect the heartbeat. She has to be my choice. Anything else would render me a failure. I will be put to death. 

When I stay silent, breathing rapidly, Hudson goes on. “The one you love? Or the one you are duty-bound to protect at all costs? What’s the choice? Who dies?” 

He cackles, dragging the sword gently across their shoulders one at a time until their shirts fall, exposing their blood-stained bras. 

“I’m on the edge of my seat,” he proclaims. “Should I take off more clothes to help you decide? That seems to be a weakness of yours. This one. Naked.” He extends the blade once more. 

“Stop. I’ve made my choice. But no catching the one you free on another day. She’s always safe from the Rifts.” I’m shocked my voice doesn’t shake. I’m not choosing what I want for dinner. I’m sealing a fate and taking a soul. I am the grim reaper incarnate. 

Hudson lowers the weapon. “Fine. Who then? Get to the good part. Who dies today?” 

“Me,” I say. “Kill me. Let the women go free.” 

He shakes his head, gaze glinting evil. “That wasn’t the game. That’s the easy way out. Tell me who dies and who lives. It’s your one chance to play God. You’re running out of time. I’m losing patience.” 

I knew it would come to this, and even still, I can’t think of any way out of it. Not when I know what he’s capable of with that sword. I also know what she’s capable of. I extend my pointer finger out.

“She dies,” I say.

Hudson’s eyes light—a malevolent twitch shakes his lower jaw. “A surprising choice,” he replies, but he’s already lost in bloodlust as he raises the blade. It gleams when the light from the skylight strokes the metal just right, nearly blinding me. The scent of iron mixes with stale beer, and I retch. My heart feels like it’s beating out of my chest. I fall back, landing against the cement floor with a thud, smashing the plastic bird in my back pocket. 

He slides the razor blade edge across her throat, and blood sprays out like a fan as he severs her head. 

Always. Protect. The. Heartbeat.

An enemies to lovers, standalone novel in The Charge Men Series.

Nate Sullivan

Keep this chick alive.Don’t let her know I’m her bodyguard. What should be an easy task, something I’m trained for, and well practiced in, is a living nightmare. Presley is moody, thinks she’s funny when she’s not, impossible to track down, and highly unpredictable. As her Charge Man, I’m responsible for keeping her heart beating. The thing is, the closer I get to her, the more my own heart starts beating… for her.

Charge Men don’t ever fall in love. Especially with their infuriating Principals.

It’s forbidden.

Presley Cohen

I went into a protection program after my father tanked the world’s economy. He is quite literally the most hated man in the world. Because of that, I’m a target. Gold Hawke, Colorado, isn’t a place anyone dreams of visiting, let alone, living. It’s a far cry from the glamorous, billionaire lifestyle I’m accustomed to, but at least I’m breathing. I created a redo bucket list. It’s filled with things I would never be able to do in my former life in the spotlight.

My new frenemy, Nate Sullivan, is infuriated by my list, but who doesn’t want to join a roller derby team? Or strip at a strip club? Or ride a bull? Or make that exasperatingly attractive good guy fall in love with you?

I have nothing left to lose.

The Love You Hate Sneak Peek

“Fine. If that was a mistake, what do you call this? Between us?” I gesture between our bodies with a flailing arm. “What is it?” His breathing speeds and the feral look in his eye makes my stomach flip. He crosses to where I’m standing and pins my wrists on either side of my head against the wall. The move is so forceful, I lose my breath, and my train of thought. Nate licks his lips as his gaze flicks between my eyes and my mouth. His breaths crawl across my cheeks and my whole body breaks out in shivers.

“It’s also a mistake,” Nate says, jaw clenched. “The biggest mistake of my life.” I swallow hard—held completely captivated by the intensity of his stare. He shakes his head once, “The catch is that I don’t care. I don’t care if it’s a mistake. I can’t help myself.” He leans forward, trailing his lips against mine—testing, asking permission. Closing my eyes, I stay as still as possible. It would be criminal to tell him how much I want him despite everything else. Also, I don’t have the power to tell him no.

He growls, “I broke every rule for you but one. The one that would level me.”

“You’re my Principal! I have sworn an oath to protect you with my life. If anything happens to you, I will lose my life. If I kiss every square inch of your body it won’t be enough. No, I’ll want more. I want it all. Do you know what happens to humans when they have all of anything?” His voice is strained, but I can answer yes to his last question. I can’t move my mouth, or control my breathing, or tear my gaze from his face. He releases my hands and palms his chest. “I’ll be a gluttonous fool, and you’ll be the one to take the fall.”

On His Six is Live!

The Summit Seduction SEAL duet is complete. Flash Bang and On His Six are both available to read on Amazon, in KindleUnlimited. They are both full length novels, but one continuous story so they must be read in order.

Book 1: Flash Bang

Book 2: On His Six

The Summit Seduction SEAL Duet

Maeve Ahern

No one ever really starts over. They drag their overweight suitcase filled with a haunting, dead fiancé and unzip it in a new location. That’s just facts of life. At least, it’s my life. Sure, I moved to Colorado for a fresh start, but my past with Rexy looms in every corner light doesn’t touch. 

My career as a pediatric physical therapist is the only thing I have left, and I pride myself on being the best in the field. It’s why I moved to Colorado to open my own practice. Men aren’t even on my radar, but then again, Turner isn’t a man, he’s my adorable, six-year-old patient. His father, though? He’s everything I swore off. A swaggering, muscle filled, creation similar to the one I lost. 

He’s a Navy SEAL. A military man. A heartbreaking blunder I can’t make twice. 

Unfortunately, whenever he steps into the room, all I see is light.

Lincoln Wilds

Single parenting isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s constant chaos, and the maddening sense of abandonment always lurks in the background. Turner’s mother left us a month after he was born—vanished into a dark, drug-fueled existence. My military career suffered during his infancy stage, but I’m finally working my way back to some semblance of normalcy. 

I just got my own squad at the SEAL Team, when Turner falls off the monkey bars and shatters his leg. Just another hiccup in our complicated life. He needs a skilled physical therapist to help him walk again, but when I meet Maeve, something about her disorients me completely.

Maeve Ahern is a walking, talking flash bang.
