#Blurb
Ten years ago, Ryleigh O’Donnell let the love of her life go so he could follow his dreams.
Now, she’s a successful bar owner, a loyal and fierce friend, and someone everyone counts on.
She has everything she has ever dreamed of, but there is still a void inside her the size of a six-
foot-four professional fighter, Rook Wallace, who she is forced to watch on television.
When she finds her past hiding in the shadows under her fire escape and asking for her help, she knows she should turn him away—protect herself. Her heart doesn’t care what her mind wants, though, and she risks everything by letting him back into her life. She just has to hold on long enough for him to clear his name, and keep his career afloat, then she can go back to business as usual … at least that’s what she tells herself.

Michael Ross – Hand in Glove (Out of Hand Series Book 2) AVAILABLE NOW!

hand-in-glove

BLURB:

Eighteen months have passed since the concluding scene of Hand Over Fist, and disgraced ex detective Bobby Tanner is enjoying his life in business partnership with entrepreneur John Staples, better known as Pin-up. Bobby lives in an exclusive riverside apartment with the lovely Zoe Jackson and his life has never been better.

Everything is plain sailing until Pin-up calls him into his office with details of an investigation for Bobby to carry out. A few months earlier, famous show business agent Mo Parker was murdered in his country mansion and the police investigation team led by Bobby’s ex colleague, DS Jess Mulligan has got nowhere with its enquiries.

Pin-up is a personal friend of Parker’s most famous client, superstar actress/model Paige Freeman, who feels that large amounts of money, handled for her by Parker, have gone missing. With inside information from Mulligan, Bobby is less constrained by protocol than the detective and, with the help of the former criminal enforcer, Xenon, Bobby is able to pick up a clear thread which leads him to Mo Parker’s killer.

However, as a clearer picture of events emerges, it is obvious that dark forces and motivations lie behind Parker’s death. The identity of the murderer becomes almost incidental as Bobby searches for the truth, and he needs to move quickly if matters are not to spiral completely out of control.

AUTHOR BIO:

It was a strange and twisting road that led to the publishing of my second novel.

Born and raised in Bristol, England. I spent my adult life in business, the majority of that time marketing cars. I eventually owned the largest Saab specialist in the world, before a divorce put an end to that part of my life.

This led me to leave Bristol to live halfway up a mountain in the Welsh valleys, start a part time six year English Literature course at Bristol University, and attend creative writing classes in Cardiff.

My interest in English literature flourished and I have won several prizes for my short stories. My first book, ‘Twenty Short Stories – Settling a score,” reached No 6 in the Short Stories Best Sellers and is still available. My second novel, a romantic thriller entitled Hand Over Fist was released earlier this year

Chasing What’s Already Gone evolved from a short story Carpe Diem in my second anthology Twenty One Short Stories. I could not get the two main characters out of my head and I had to find out what happened to them after the end of the short story.

I now live very happily halfway up that mountain in the Welsh Valleys with my wonderful partner, Mari, and our rescue dog, Wolfie.

Synopsis:

 

A LORD WITH LEGENDARY CONTROL…

Merciless and powerful, Ashton Lennox is a wealthy man because he puts business before everything else, especially love. As a member of the infamous League of Rogues, he’s no stranger to scandal.

A FIERY WOMAN WHO WON’T BACK DOWN…

The daughter of a Scottish lord with a dark and treacherous past, Rosalind Melbourne has spent years distancing from her past. After escaping her tyrannical father and marrying an aging English lord, she has become a powerful widow with a business empire at her command. Her business dealings are everything to her, leaving her no time for love. Especially not with her business rival Ashton, a man with a scandalous reputation as striking as his blue eyes.

A GAME OF WITS TURNS TO A GAME OF SEDUCTION…

Ashton is fascinated by the strong-willed, intelligent and sensual lady who, up until now, had outsmarted him at every turn. Rosalind wishes she could deny she is falling for the brooding, handsome baron. How can she possibly trust him when doing so could cost her what she values most—her freedom? When Ashton discovers Rosalind might hold the key to saving the League of Rogues, he knows he will do anything to woo his wicked lass. As their pasts return to haunt them and dark forces rise to keep them from exposing a deadly spymaster, their game of love turns to a game of survival…

 

Warning: This book includes a brooding baron who’s wild in bed, a crafty Scottish lass who never knows when to quit, a wicked game of strip chess, and a merry band of rogues whose first instinct is to run they hear wedding bells ring.

Synopsis:

 

He was my brother’s best friend and seven years older than me.

He was a tatted up bad boy, indulging in one night stands like they were going out of style.

So why did I want to tear his clothes off every time we got within five feet of each other?

 

She was only eighteen years old when we met for the first time.

She was a good girl who avoided guys like me, but that didn’t stop me from picturing all the things I wanted to do to her-to do with her. She was too young
though, and my best friend’s baby sister. I couldn’t let things go where I wanted. I couldn’t touch her-couldn’t taint her with my darkness. I knew it
could never happen. It would never happen…

but it did.

Excerpt:

 

He’s Lucifer in the flesh with those deep brown eyes and dark-as-sin hair. My eyes move down, taking in the close-shaved beard hiding the contours of his
chiseled jawline, before continuing on to his full lips. I carefully study their masculine shape. I can still remember what those lips felt like on mine;
even though I’ve done everything I can to forget. I wish I could erase the memory of how he gripped the back of my hair tight in his fist and tugged me
forward until our lips were just a whisper of a breath apart.

“Is this what you want?” he’d asked. I could feel his warm breath on my mouth before he’d softly brushed his lips against mine. “Do you want to see how
close to the fire you can be without getting burned, little girl?”

I tried to pull away, incensed at being called little girl. I wasn’t a girl. I was a twenty-one- year-old woman; perfectly capable of knowing what I should
and shouldn’t be doing. I knew which heading kissing him fell under – insanity.

He was my brother’s best friend.

He was seven years older than me.

He was a pig when it came to casual sex; indulging in one-night stands like they were going out of style.

That alone should have been enough to repulse me, but for some odd reason, it didn’t. It only made me wonder what kind of things he would do to me. I was
smart enough to recognize that those three things combined were a recipe for disaster. The wreckage left over would be the pieces of my heart, and I
couldn’t put myself out there for him on the off chance that he wouldn’t break me. My heart was damaged enough already.

He’d held my head in place as he’d swooped in, taking my lips in a kiss so hot I felt like I was going to burn up in flames. His tongue had plundered my
mouth, punishing me for pulling away, for trying to resist him. He showed me who was in control with that kiss. He showed me I wouldn’t ever truly get away
from him, and I hated him for that. I hated him for ruining other guys for me; but most of all I hated him for what he’d said when he pulled away from me.

“Stick to kissing those boys at school. Men want a woman in their arms, not a little girl.” He looked at me with such disdain, I wanted the ground to open
up and swallow me whole. I wanted to disappear, go someplace where his painful words couldn’t hurt me anymore. Where my memory could be wiped clean of
Derek Santiago and his handsome face.

That kiss is still the hottest one I’ve ever had to this day, but I still despise him for the cruel words he callously threw at me. Those words tore me
apart and made me second guess myself. It took me a long time to realize what he said wasn’t motivated by me at all. It was the result of him despising
himself.

I’m a monster.

He’s an addiction for me. A drug I can’t and don’t want to withdraw from.
I’m determined to know all he’s hiding.
When the fire of their passion collides with his hidden past, Amber must decide to let him endure the pain alone or burn with him.

Get ready for Finley and Teague – and find out if she slaps him or rings his MEGABALLS!

Synopsis

I’ve got 99 problems but money ain’t one. Though a sister with cotton candy for brains, a spatula-wielding six-year-old niece with a British accent, and the mysterious businessman who left me that damn ticket are all currently vying for the top spot.

When I became the sole winner of a $270 million Megaball jackpot, thanks to a sexy stranger who left a lottery ticket instead of paying for his meal, my entire world flipped upside-down.

Now, with money-sucking vultures, douchebags by the dozens, and a horde of total hotties just waiting to get their mangy paws on my newfound fortune, I set out to locate the man who gifted me the winning ticket–to properly thank him.

However, when I finally find the cocky, self-absorbed business tycoon, Teague Goodman, I’m not sure whether I want to slap him… or ring his MEGABALLS.

excerpt

It’s been four hours and seven bathroom stops since we left San Francisco, and if I have to listen to my sister sing one more song with the wrong lyrics, my head may explode. I never would’ve suggested we listen to a ‘Classic Roadtrip’ playlist, had I known she would butcher some of my favorite songs to the point I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to listen to them again. I managed to keep my mouth shut when she belted out, “Staying alive with a steak and a knife,” with the Bee-Gee’s, and I didn’t comment when she crooned, “I’ll never leave your pizza burning,” instead of the Rolling Stones’ “Beast of Burden.” But when I heard, “Might as well face it, you’re a dick with a glove,” I finally had to say something. I mean, come on.
