Exotic and erotic.
Diana Hambre's shifter nature is out-of-control and could cost her job as a graphic designer at Matrix. A year of going it alone since her mate's death has her leopardess mating cycle broiling. To curb her carnal cravings, Diana signs up for an evening at a shifter club. When Shawn Barclay who stalks through the doorway, it's mayhem in the making.

As owner of Matrix and the Downtown Den, Shawn has ignored his primal instinct to claim Diana as his mate. With his Zen training, he keeps a tight rein on his desire for the leopardess. But when she's collared upstairs at the Den, he's refuses to let another shifter near her.

Diana agrees and what transpires lasts longer than a night. In opening up to Shawn's explosive bedroom skills, Diana taps into her powerful leopardess instinct. So primal, she fears what she may do if left unchecked. Shawn agrees to teach Diana how to harness her alpha power in return for total control over her body.

During a midnight run, Diana confronts a rogue shifter pack and forces Shawn's hand to her backside and what he proposes could last a lifetime. From Denver to Las Vegas, these two are inseparable until Mia, his ex-fiancée comes back into the picture with a claim to stake.

Can Diana mix cutting-edge design room tactics with red-hot sex...when alpha shifter might shatter her heart?

Stephen McLemore brings sexy back...way, way back in this flame-throwing Western romance.

~Book Tease~

Waking up chained to a headboard in an unfamiliar room, Stephen swears that drinking and womanizing have got to stop. Until a tempting redhead on the other side of the bed catches his attention.
Gillian can’t believe her eyes. A naked man is in her bedroom. Worse, he’s her brother’s friend, Stephen McLemore best known for his wicked reputation in several counties. With his hard-muscled body and incredulous grin, Gillian’s defenses falter.  Holy smoke, all of sudden they're face-to-face and the sparks fly in one unguarded kiss. Their molten connection heats up fast when at every turn, they’re tripping over each other in town.
Things go from crazy-hot to surreal in a heartbeat. Hollywood producers pick Gillian for their dance reality television show. Refusing to let another man step into his space, Stephen volunteers to be her partner.
In short order, these two lovers realize there’s more to their sleepy town than they’d ever imagined possible. In his moment of gallant behavior, Stephen risks losing the only woman he’s let get under his skin. If he wants to keep the girl, he’d better decide to stake his claim before it’s too late.
Amidst chaos and the tugging on her heartstrings, Gillian must decide if fame is what she’s dreamed of when a Harley riding rancher has all the right moves.
Warning: Dance teacher hottie and cowboy connect, creating nuclear explosive romance. Handcuffs, spanking, and dancing fill this Western love story.


But then, he stopped moving and they stood on the dance floor cinched together. Unmoving except for their heartbeats and breathing. Not one step. Gillian leaned back, and his eyes locked onto her gaze. The music continued, but they remained in place on the dance floor. His hands moved down to her waist.
The expression in his eyes told her he wanted her. He moved his hips a smidge to the left and there was no mistaking his erection. His hardness protruded into her belly, barely above her pubic bone. If she lifted up on her tippy-toes, just a couple of inches upward, she could make their bodies fit together. The space between her legs pulsed with an ache to feel him there. She bit her lip, unable to decide what to do.
“I swear, you do that for a second longer and I’ll take you outside. Haul you back around the alley and finish what we started the other morning. Don’t tease me, Gillian.”
“Why would I do that?” And that’s when, without considering her next move or the repercussions, she ground herself into him. Just like before, she couldn’t help herself around Stephen.
“Christ, woman.” His hands were on her hips, holding her steady.
His brows came together, clouding his gorgeous face. Then she realized he was holding her off of him. Maybe he was teasing her.
The room became unbearably stifling, and she blurted out, “Did you bring me out here to get next to Lori?”
He released a puff of air through his nostrils. “No. Why would you think that?”
“Keeping your perimeter safe, for one thing.”
He lowered his eyes, his gaze drifting down her body, the corners of his mouth pulling upward. “No, darlin’. I’m trying not to give in to temptation. I am very, very interested in what we’ve got going on. But you’re complicated, and I’m not a nice guy.”

The Bad Boys series consists of three stand alone stories connecting two sassy cousins from Miami and the McLemore men from the Evermore Cattle Ranch in Annona, Texas.
The fourth book coming in 2014 showcases Cory McLemore, the sister to the McLemore hunks 
in a Shotgun Wedding.

Tasty  Tease
Don’t. Go. There. Swallowing, she released the bubble of doubt swelling in her throat and acknowledged this was her band’s moment to garner a future. Not to shop for a sex partner. Fun and games. Not a thing more. The balancing of the equation was up to her. She exhaled, hoping to clear the clusterfuck of ideas and images congesting her brain. One last time. What did she want?
With a deep inhalation, she studied his face, his see-all sapphire blue eyes, and without further ado, she calmly whispered, “Fuck you.”
His jaw dropped open, but then he quickly recovered. A glimmer of excitement flashed in his eyes. “That filthy mouth of yours is so enticing, but a promise is a promise.”
“What are you going to do?”
“Now who’s acting slow?” He picked up a condom from the night table and ripped open the packet. He handled his dick with absolute precision in swathing himself in latex and then he was at her opening, gripping his cock with his hand. “Baby, here’s the recap: I’m going to fuck you, spank you, and then fuck you again. Then it’s on to the office.”
A seamless delivery. On the next heartbeat, he thrust into her in one hard plunge and she spontaneously cried out, digging her nails into his shoulders.
“Is this how you get a client’s attention?” she asked, squeezing her muscles around his erection.
“God, you’re amazing.” The skin along his jaw twitched; he slammed back into her before responding. “We’ve already addressed that you are a special case. One that requires my complete and personal attention. No more talking, unless it’s my name on your lips. Tell me how my cock feels inside you. Put that dirty mouth of yours to work.”
He felt amazing, but she couldn’t tell him and have those words lingering between them. “No,” she whispered.
“Fuck, Alana. You’re so hard-headed.” He pumped his hips, rocking up and down, slamming his cock into her again and again. “Tell me. Do you like when I fuck you like this?”
Wrapping her legs around his waist, she wanted to shout, Of course I do. Who wouldn’t want an animal between her legs, fucking like nobody’s business?
“Why? You don’t get enough compliments on your work?” She stared back at him, aching with something foreign that promised to slice to ribbons her ability to remain encased and safe in her insulated, circumscribed world.
He stopped moving his torso, changing tactics as he twisted his hands in her hair. “Don’t backslide! I’ll haul your arse across my lap and take care of this issue of your snappy remarks. Or is that what you’re after? Fuck me,” he bellowed, and pulled out of her. In the next instant she was picked up and, true to his word, she lay stretched across his lap, facing the floor. “You count, and if you don’t we begin all over again. On one.”
She tried to scramble off his lap, and that’s when it happened. Smack!
Hard. Loud. And painful. “Jesus Christ,” she breathed out without thinking.
“Not even close. Do we need to go over introductions again as well?”
The white-hot-poker scorching eased and his hold on her loosened. Not a lot, but enough to take a deep breath. “I’m not laughing. That hurts,” she said.
“Something tells me that much of these next two weeks will involve inflicting pain to capture your fleeting attention span.”
“Don’t be a d—,”she cut herself off, choosing another route. “Ridiculous.”
“Good save, Alana. But too late. You owe me, and it’s probably best if you pay the piper now so we can get on with the morning. Time’s a-wasting. Count with me.” His hand rubbed down her ass cheeks, onto the back of her thighs; she immediately noted when he lifted his hand, and could hear his inhalation. “Now,” he said.
“One,” she whispered, unsure of what to expect as she focused on his hand meeting her backside. Again, the blaze of his large palm coming into screaming contact with her ass had her arching. Exhaling.
“Steady,” he said, pushing her back onto his lap, and then he lifted his hand. “Again.”
 “Two,” she said between gritted teeth.
He spanked another section of her ass, spreading the fire from one side of her rear-end to the other. The flaring pain had her wriggling on top of his legs. At first she did so to ease the fiery assault, and then she latched onto an urge to spread her thighs open, on the verge of coming apart. The desire for him to tantalize her there sky-rocketed, and the feeling of hazy clouds of need saturated her brain.
“Please, Jonathan,” Alana whispered through the enticing fog.
“Not until we’re through.” His voice sounded strained. But that didn’t stop him from raising his hand again, or the firm smack he delivered that unleashed a flurry of flashing lights in front of her eyes. 
“Three…three,” she panted.
“Let’s pick up the pace now that you’ve got this part. And afterwards, I’m going to fuck you the way I’ve wanted to ever since you and that smart mouth of yours sounded off last night.”
“Just do it now. God, I want you inside me.”
“Patience. That’s precisely what you need to learn.”
Her head snapped up, and she struggled to remain silent. And him? He needed to learn he couldn’t just do exactly what he pleased. She’d never met a man who stomped through life as though it were one big oyster bed, his to pluck whatever pearl lay within his reach. If there were lessons to learn, J.P. Lansing had a few of his own to acquire. Alana clenched her jaw, stifling the crushing urge to speak her mind.
“And you’re going to teach me?” She flung back, unable to stop feeding him fuel for this sexual firestorm he had set blazing between them.


Alana and Jon are back in Book 2 of the Rule Breaker series.
