Wrong place. Wrong time. That’s the story of my life.
Kidnap and hold the old lady of a rival MC club president? Easy.
Keeping our hands to ourselves? Well…
Not so easy.
Lola’s a spitfire and fights us at every turn. With a temper as lethal as her tongue, she’s so fiery that we can’t help but want a taste – enemy or not.
Hell, the fact that she’s forbidden fruit just makes us want her more.
Besides, men like us aren’t made to play by the rules.
She says she’s not the girl we think she is, but we don’t make mistakes.
She’s only one thing now.
That awkward moment when you insult the boss on your first day on the job.
Yeah, that just happened.
In my defense, if I’d known it was Connor Colby of the Colby’s Chocolates and Candies empire standing by the display dressed in a candy cane-striped suit, I never would have opened my mouth to tell him that their signature chocolate bar sucked.
How was I supposed to know he was the boss man?
He was in town temporarily to help save his father’s company.
I was only there for a payday to jump start my art career.
I had one job—help him come up with a rock solid marketing plan.
The task included long nights and late dinners working by Connor’s side.
It did not include kisses, sex in the supply closet, or … worst yet, falling in love.
Why is that so bad you ask?
Because the man is leaving right after our mission is complete.
Will our sweet love become a sour punch to the gut or will we be together now & later and forever?
Author’s Warning: This standalone office romance is a lot sweet, a bit sexy and one with a ton of family feels. One-click this story for the wounded hero trying to save his father's company, the artistic heroine who faints at the sight of blood, her hilarious fun loving friends, and unplanned supply closet rendezvous.
Have your results at the gym plateaued? Have you failed at other gym workouts? Or are you even intimidated by the gym?
Because there is a secret no gym wants you to know; you can get the body you want without paying for a gym!
With $558 million being wasted on unused gym memberships last year it is no surprise they do not want you to know.
We have probably all been through it, after starting out at the gym and making quick progress your results soon started to stagnate.
You feel like you’re stuck there spending your entire evening travelling to the gym to work out where you are surrounded by huge muscular guys, sweaty equipment and loads of machines half of which you have never used.
On top of that you are not seeing any gains, you think “what am I paying for?”.
But you have no other choice if you want a ripped body than to go to the gym, right?
Well there is an old workout style that is getting newfound popularity for its fun, environmental and free approach to working out and…………the results speak for themselves.
You will be able to quit the gym and never look back.
In this book you will receive:
This style of training has turned my clients from not being able to support their own bodyweight to performing 20+ pullups without breaking a sweat!
If you are still doubting me, it is probably because no other gym workout has worked for you or how are you going to commit to this when you barely use your gym membership.
But remember this is not the gym.
You do not have to travel anywhere; you do not have to pay for anything and when you finish you can hop straight in your own shower and into your pyjamas. What do you have to lose?
**Includes the prequel - One Night With A Billionaire**
Jason Sutherland is a billionaire investor who has it all: good looks, billions of dollars, and every expensive toy a man could ever want. What he doesn’t have is the one thing he wants the most: Hope Sinclair. Unfortunately Hope, the little sister of his best friend, was off limits. But when he finds out that she’s getting married, he decides that he’s staking his claim before it’s too late, and it will take more than a little deception and risk to accomplish his goal. Hope could end up hating his guts, but after spending one forbidden night with her that he can’t forget, he knows he has to try to make her his forever.
Hope Sinclair was born into money, but being rich has never made her happy. The one thing she wants is a man to care about her and not her bank account. The closest thing she’s ever found to real happiness was the magical, passionate night she’d spent in the arms of Jason Sutherland…until that night turned into heartbreak. So when he unexpectedly comes back into her life in the strangest of ways, Hope is determined to resist her attraction to him.
Thrown together by Jason’s deception and with their passion still burning hot, can the two of them survive after the billionaire is unmasked?

“The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers.” –Dick the Butcher, William Shakespeare, Henry VI, Part 2, Act IV, Scene 2

But there is no undoing the decisions of the past or avoiding the ensuing consequences. Even if Tabby wishes otherwise.
Overwhelmed by her husband’s irresponsible lifestyle and suffocating debt, Tabby’s life unravels around her until she is forced to relinquish her home and privileged life to become a lowly servant to a most irritating and demanding sailor.

But when his sister hires an intriguing and far too beguiling nurse to watch over him, Graham finds himself wondering if a life on land might not be such an awful thing. Even if the lady in question is determined to keep him at arm’s length…

“A high-octane thriller, combining insurance scams and drug cartels, chock-full of well-planned sequences, evasive actions, and near misses.” –Sublime Book Review
Meet Angel—smart, willful, a lover of animals. She is also one of the Cartel del Noreste's most lethal hitters, but this time she has met her match. His name is Dr. Ernest L. Girard and he’s a man who has everything—upbringing, looks, gifted surgical skills. He is also an admitted drug user, gambler, and the prime suspect in the largest medical malpractice scam ever investigated in California.
Girard is about to get lucky, and rich. His practice, Hurston Neurological Institute, is being bought out by a German medical conglomerate led by a profit-hungry CEO with neo-Nazi tendencies. But when a fellow party-hound is busted for cocaine possession and turns state’s evidence against Girard, Angel is hired to get rid of the good doctor. That is until her best-laid plans spin crazily out of control and our huntress becomes the hunted.
The men and women who served as agents of the World War 2 Special Operations Executive were courageous. But courage was not enough. They also needed to learn the caution and suspicion that might just keep them alive, deep undercover in enemy territory.
Guardians of Churchill's Secret Army tells the stories of the extraordinary men who taught them those skills and thought processes. Their job was to stand alongside trainee agents and teach them how to seem innocuous while preparing resistance, subversion and sabotage.
These men were junior in rank, but far from ordinary people. They were Australian, Anglo-French, Canadian, Scandinavian, East European and British. They had been schoolteachers, journalists, artists, ship brokers, racehorse trainers and international businessmen. Each spoke several languages. Many became agents themselves and displayed great bravery. All played a crucial role in the global effort to undermine the enemy.
We find them not only in the Baker Street Headquarters of SOE, but also in night parachute drops, in paramilitary training in the remotest depths of Scotland and in undercover agent training in isolated English country houses. We follow them to occupied France, to Malaya and Thailand under threat of Japanese invasion, to Italy and Germany as they play their part in the collapse of the Axis regimes. Their stories are inspiring.
If you like discovering the true stories that underpin the history of the Second World War, then you'll want to read this authentic book. In it, Peter Dixon shines a spotlight on a crucial area of the Special Operations Executive.
When politics meets pole fitness, Mel's life flips upside-down.
After Mel’s disastrous promotional video goes viral, a “family values” group launches a protest against her dance studio.

If he wins the upcoming election, he threatens to change the laws to keep all pole dancing out of their community.
Mel’s no politician, but she's not not going down without a fight. Since running for office beats unemployment, she decides to face off against him. She hires a campaign manager and tosses her hat in the ring. There’s just one problem: voters don’t understand pole. Mel needs to change her image, fast. If she can’t get the people on her side, she won’t have a business to save. Worse, Mel finds herself falling for her campaign manager, Daniel, but she can't tell if he likes Mel the dancer or Melody the candidate.
For Mel, the hardest part of running for office may be protecting her heart.
