    *A sizzling romance from a USA Today Bestselling Author. * This is a standalone. Each book in the Bennett series features a different couple.* 
    Christopher Bennett is a persuasive man. With his magnetic charm and undeniable wit, he plays a key role in the international success of his family’s company.  
    Christopher adores his family, even if they can be too meddling sometimes… like when they recommend him to employ Victoria Hensley’s decorating services for his new apartment in an attempt to set him up with her. Christopher isn’t looking to settle down, but meeting Victoria turns his world upside down. Her laughter is contagious, and her beautiful lips and curves are too tempting. 
    Victoria Hensley is determined not to fall under Christopher’s spell, even though the man is hotter than sin, and his flirty banter makes her toes curl. But Christopher is her client, and she knows better than to get involved with clients. Besides, Victoria isn’t looking for love. After her parents’ death, Victoria is raising her much younger siblings, and she can’t afford any mistakes. 
    But Victoria and Christopher’s chemistry is not just the sparks-flying kind, but the downright explosive kind. Before she knows it, Christopher is training her brother Lucas for soccer tryouts and reading bedtime stories to her sister Chloe. 
    Victoria wants to resist him, but Christopher is determined, stubborn, and oh-so-persuasive.  
    When their attraction and connection both spiral out of control, will they be able to risk it all for a love that is far too tempting?

    Over my dead body. 
     
    That's what I told Gracie when she informed me of her plan to pick some random guy she met online to get rid of her pesky virginity. 
     
    If anyone is touching her, it's going to be me. 
     
    I shouldn't even be considering it, but I can't get it out of my head: her, under me, begging me. 
     
    *** 
    Arrogant. Cocky. Prick. 
     
    Those are the words I’d use to describe my older brother’s dangerously handsome best friend. 
     
    When he learned of my plan to kick off my white cotton briefs, ditching my good girl persona once and for all by losing my virginity to the first eligible bachelor I could find, he flipped out. Said over his dead body. 
     
    He says if anyone’s going to do it, it’s going to be him. 
     
    I hate that I’m even considering his offer. 
     
    But I am … I sooo am. 
     
    Ever since he suggested it, all I can think about is his cocky smile on those full lips as he’s driving in to me. 
     
    But if we cross that line … will I ever be able to go back? 
     
    MONSTER PRICK, a sexy romantic comedy, is a spin off novella from SCREWED, but can be read as a standalone, as it features a new couple.

    Only one man could set her heart ablaze . . . 
     
     
    Lady Averill Mortagne learned to control her fierce temper as a young girl. But if her father insists on parading her before one more English lord who looks askance at her flame-colored hair, she'll simply scream! Her only respite is the time she spends with Kade Stewart, the wounded Scot her brother brought home from the Crusades. Who could have imagined a Highland warrior would be the only gentleman around? 
     
     
    Lady Averill helped save his life, and for that Kade is truly grateful. She is also almost unbearably beautiful, but he could never subject such a sweet and gentle lady to the rough life of a Stewart laird's bride . . . or could he? When she braves an unexpected danger by his side, Averill will prove to Kade that her heart is as fiery as her hair . . . and that submitting to their scorching passion would be heaven indeed.

    " Take you where?" he asked, and opened my legs. He moved his body parallel to mine, and pushed my wrists into the pillows. I wrapped my legs around him and our heat was unbearable. Strands of hair stuck to my forehead and cheeks, and I tried to stop my body from trembling. Something about his persona made me weak. "Stop teasing me," I whispered, "You're making me wet enough as it is. "
    
    " I can tell," he said, running his hand up and down my thigh. He cupped his hand around my pussy and pushed his palm into my clit. As he gently made circular motions, I moaned. I bit my lip and he started kissing my neck. "Content Warning: Explicit love scenes, naughty language, and piles of sexy shifter secrets. Intended for mature audiences.
