Sparks fly as special ops agent Dane Blaise and Scotland Yard detective Shana George team up to solve crimes on Martha’s Vineyard! A must-read boxed set of riveting romantic suspense.
Ex-special ops legend Dane Blaise is a very paranoid beachcomber. He takes his violence with a cup of zen and a shot of tequila. Until ex-Scotland Yard detective Shana George intrudes on his island.
Now there's a slip in his swagger and a sliver of hope wedged in his cynicism.
The kind of vulnerability that could get a man--or woman--killed.
Is their partnership in Martha's Vineyard's only PI agency a mistake?
If you love intense action and sizzling sensual tension mixed with witty banter, this is your series.
I'm not enjoying the so-called break in the action, that's for d@mn sure.
Shooting the Brawlers hockey team--even if they are in the playoffs--is a major demotion as far as I'm concerned and I don't care how many people would trade their right arm for the assignment.
Especially when I end up shooting the behind-the-scenes series for the team where I have to interact with the team on a daily basis. Pro athletes are over-privileged prima donnas as far as I'm concerned and I want noting to do with the kind of grown men who play games for a living.
They live in fantasyland and don't know what it's like out there in the real world.
Not even the larger than life team captain with the killer body, contagious laugh, and a ridiculous dimple in his strong chin--cliche much?--can convince me otherwise...
He Has Pluck is a full length New Adult hockey romance set in the world of the Boston Brawlers hockey team. You'll see players from other stories drop in for fun, but this book can be read as a stand-alone. If you love hot hockey players with massive charm and a sense of humor, enemies-to-lovers romance that sizzles with all the feels right up to the satisfying happy ending, you'll love this story! (Contains sex and language for mature audiences.)

That's why I let her go...
Exchanging a bro-hug with Alan Bigsby, I look past him to the girl standing next to him.
Did I say girl? I meant she-devil.
“Nate, how was your summer?” he says. “Great to see you back, man.”
The musty air in the old house--Big Man on Campus House--stills and presses in as the three of us stand in the front hall.
“This is my new girl, Sarina Torini.” Bigsby pulls her into his side and her eyes flash, chin lifting in defiance as she stares me down. “She says you knew each other a while back. You remember her?” Bigsby looks from Sarina to me, broad smile announcing he’s on top of the world, expecting an innocent answer.
“Sadly, I do remember Sarina.” I admit, keeping my voice neutral in spite of my words. His smile stumbles but refuses to fall. I go on, “but not because I haven’t spent a lot of whiskey and two-fisted nights trying to forget her.” It’s not in me to lie or pretend.
I stare at her startled deep brown eyes. I could still drown in them after all this time. She takes in a quick breath, then she recovers, glaring back at me and I can feel the frost forming on my dick...

Not to mention awkward because our friend zone is bordered by barb wire and even though I've known her since she had scraped knees and missing front teeth, she's not that kid anymore.
Now? She's a knockout who has my heart beating too fast and other body parts standing at attention.
