"TOP PICK! 4 1/2 stars! Zanetti proves that when it
comes to RS, she is in a class by herself!" RT Book Reviews

 One year ago, Denver Jones blew up his life and left everything behind. To stay alive, he had no other choice. But now, when video footage of the woman he could never forget goes viral, begging for his help, he has no choice but to go to her. Her niece has been kidnapped and Denver and his blood brothers are the only people she can trust. 

But Denver isn't the only one watching that video. The deadly forces from his past see it too-and they'll use anything--and anyone--they can to lure Denver out of hiding to exact their revenge. 

Noni slowly came awake with a heater at her back.  The smell of male and forest filled her senses.
Denver.
She stilled and listened to his even breathing.  He was asleep.  Good.  She took a moment to feel his presence in bed again.  Some of the happiest times in her entire life had been with him in bed.  Man, she’d fallen for him fast and hard.  They’d only dated for about three months, but she could remember each and every detail as if it were yesterday.  The feeling of him in bed was right.
Yet it wasn’t.  It couldn’t be.  For months after he’d left, she hadn’t slept in her bed.  She’d watched television until falling asleep on the sofa in her living room. 
She couldn’t do this.  Be with him like this.  Everything feminine in her wanted to turn around and snuggle into his arms.  But he’d be gone soon, and she knew it.  Why torture herself?  The room was still dark, so dawn had yet to arrive.  She slid from the bed as quietly as she could, turned and backtracked to the doorway.
He slept on his back on top of the covers, his huge body taking up most of the bed.  His movements were nil, but his breathing even.  How tired had he been?  A lock of his black hair had fallen on his forehead, and her fingers itched to push it away.  To caress down his hard jaw and muscled neck to that wide chest.  She’d once spent an entire morning kissing that chest.
Man, she missed him.  Even now, with him near and her so pissed, she missed those moments.  When he was hers to touch.
Enough wallowing.  That was beneath her, and she was stronger than this.  There was no choice.  She swallowed and gathered her courage, sliding out of the room and quietly shutting the door.  After a quick trip to the one bathroom, she tiptoed into the living room and surveyed the computers.  The materials from her backpack were spread over a table, while other manila files and yellow notepads were scattered around.
Forgoing hers for his, she flipped through them.  A small, very small, part of her felt guilty to be going through Denver’s things.  The other part, the one he’d abandoned alone in a bed in Alaska, didn’t give a hoot.  The man would never level with her, so she’d be the detective in this case.
The file held a bunch of notes and pictures of red-headed women.  Something about a Copper Killer serial case filled one.  She pushed it aside and opened another file labeled as “Dr. Madison.”
“See anything that interests you?”  Denver asked from hallway entry.
Noni jumped, her lungs compressing.  “I’m just getting started.”  She would not feel bad.  “I read about the Copper Killer case in the newspaper.  He was a serial killer who focused on redheads. They caught the guy here in Snowville, right?”
We caught the guy,” Denver said, not moving.  He leaned against the door frame, his hair mussed up, whiskers covering his square jaw.  His ragged T-shirt was wrinkled, and his jeans ripped, and nothing in the world had ever looked so delicious.  Sexy, tousled, and dangerous.
Noni cleared her throat.  A pulse set up between her legs.  So that’s why he had been in town.  “That wasn’t in the news.”
“It wouldn’t be.”  He pushed away from the door frame toward her, holding out his hand.  “My records.”
She clutched them to her chest.  “I’m not done snooping.”
“Yes, you are.”  He grasped the manila folders with two fingers and pulled.
She could fight him, but in a tug of war, she’d probably lose.  Or at least get a paper cut, and those sucked.  “Who is Dr. Madison?”
At the question, his lazy indulgence disappeared.  A flash of heat hit his eyes, and for the moment, he looked every bit as deadly as he’d warned her that he could be.  Barely leashed violence poured off him in a heat she could actually feel.  “Nobody,” he said, his voice guttural.
Noni gaped at him.  At the change in him—in a second.  “Right.  I, ah, I can see that.”
Then the gates shuttered closed.  A veil fell over his expressive eyes, effectively shutting her out.
She exhaled.  “I’d forgotten that look.”  When they’d dated, every time she’d asked about his life, about his childhood, he’d shut her out.  And she’d let him.  Oh, she’d sensed the pain in his past, and she’d just accepted him, knowing someday he’d open up to her.  Someday he’d feel free enough, safe enough, to confide in her.  “I was such a fucking idiot,” she muttered, letting the truth finally in.  Even when they’d been together, he hadn’t let her know him.
“No, you’re not,” he said gently.  “I’m good at playing a part.  Really good.”
Fire lashed her.  She jumped up, sending the chair flying back.  He had fooled her, and he had done a good job with it.  But there had been moments…real moments.  She had to trust herself and what she felt.  Could she shake him?  Get him to admit it was more than just a part?  “Oh, baby.  You’re not that good.” 
“No?” he asked silkily.
“No.”  She levered up right into his face, finally trusting her instincts.  “I may not know the details of your life, of your big secrets, but I know you a little bit, asshole.”  She slapped a hand on his chest.  Hard.  “Whether you like it or not, you revealed some of your true self.” While she didn’t know the facts, she knew his heart.  Whether he liked it or not.  Since he’d shown up in her motel room, she hadn’t had time to really think.  No way would he hurt her.  While he was dangerous, she was safe.  “Suck on that.”
“Maybe,” he said, pressing his hand over hers.  “It doesn’t change anything.  We’re gonna find this baby and get you safe.  Then I have another job to do.”
“Jobs,” she sputtered as his heart beat so steadily against her palm.  “Tons of jobs, right?”
“No.  Just one.”  His hand completely covered hers, and she couldn’t move it.  The way he said the words gave her pause.  Such finality in each syllable.
Her gaze dropped to the files in his other hand.  “Dr. Madison?”
He slowly nodded.
“You’re trying to find her?”  That’s what he did, right?  He found people or things.  His detective agency found the lost.  That’s what he’d always said.
“Yes.”                     
She swallowed.  “Then what?”  Instinct chilled down her back, but she didn’t know why.  Tension choked around them.  “What happens to Dr. Madison?”
“I’m going to kill her.”  With that, Denver released Noni’s hand and moved around her to the computers.  “Now.  Let’s find that baby.”

"Heartbreaking...inspiring, uplifting and raw..." ― RT Book Reviews, A 5-star Gold Pick

A broken woman . . .

Crystal learned long ago that love brings only pain. Feeling nothing at all is far better than being hurt again. She guards her wounded heart behind a hard exterior and carries within her a deep mistrust of men, who, in her experience, have only ever used and taken.

A man in need of help . . .

Then Gabriel Dalton walks into her life. Despite the terrible darkness of his past, there's an undeniable goodness in him. And even though she knows the cost, Crystal finds herself drawn to Gabriel. His quiet strength is wearing down her defenses and his gentle patience is causing her to question everything she thought she knew.

Only love can mend a shattered heart . . .

Crystal and Gabriel never imagined that the world, which had stolen everything from them, would bring them a deep love like this. Except fate will only take them so far, and now the choice is theirs: Harden their hearts once again or find the courage to shed their painful pasts.

Release Day Blitz & Giveaway ~ Twin Savage (A Porn Star Boyfriend Novel) by Sunniva Dee


WHAT KIND OF TWISTED REALITY IS THIS?


Title: Twin Savage
Author: Sunniva Dee
Release Date: October 16, 2017

BLURB

Grief comes in many forms.
There is no right or wrong way to grieve... Right?
Except, what if you douse that grief with sex
in ways so culturally unacceptable
you leave it to a veritable male harem
led by the porn-star brother of your fiancé
to decide if you’ll emerge
from the jungle intact?

Twin Savage is standalone book #2 in the Porn Star Boyfriend series.

✨✨✨✨✨

It wasn't a problem to be the only girl in a house full of guys.
Until my fiancé died and his identical twin took over the roost.

Sweet, easygoing Julian passed, while loathsome, bossy Luka, who pays his way through med school by getting his dick wet on film, is still alive.

What kind of twisted reality is this?

Now, Luka’s on a mission to fix both of our grief.
Like I’d ever accept anything from him.
He doesn’t understand that gorgeous and sexy mean nothing if you’re a promiscuous jerk.

If only the nights didn’t destroy me.
They’re painful and long and empty,
until, on a Monday night, my insomnia attracts Diego.
That Tuesday, it attracts Lenny.
Next, it’s Marlon, James, Nathaniel,
and on Saturday, it’s Connor.

By Sunday night, I get the picture.
This is Luka doing what Luka does: solve problems with sex.
His remote-controlled comfort leaves me in our roommates’ arms six of seven nights.
On Sunday, there’s only one man left in the house.

There’s no way in hell I’m opening my door—or my heart—to a porn star.

EXCERPT

“I wish he didn’t do that,” I tell Lenny as I relax, cheek on his chest, drawing small circles around his nipple. “Luka thinks he’s the king of this place, in charge of everything that goes on here.”

“He kind of is.” Lenny’s voice is lazy. By now, I know he slides into a euphoric coma after he ejaculates. It’s adorable and a tad hot.

“No, he isn’t. Only about the rent and the utilities.”

“And about you.”

I lift my head and squint at him. “Luka is not in charge of me.”

Lenny narrows his eyes too, an easy feat. I ignore how beautiful he is beneath me. “No, but he’s who came up with our solution.”

“What are you talking about?”

He studies me, eyes widening more than usual after against-the-wall sex. “Hmm, you look like you’re working yourself up.”

“What does it matter? Just give me the lowdown.”

“Well, if you’re gonna go witch-nutty on me, I don’t know if I should.”

I lower my voice. “Witch-nutty? What does that even mean?”

“You know. All...” He lifts his hands in the air and waves them lazily while half-rolling his eyes. Not impressive.

“What solution, Lenny, or your sex life has to fend for itself from now on.”

“As if it doesn’t six days out of the week.”

“What did Luka come up with?”

“We had a house meeting.”

“Without me?”

“It was about you, so yeah. We saw how you were struggling to keep it together after Julian passed away, and Luka came up with what we’re doing now.”

“As in invading my bedroom every night? Taking turns with me?”

“I guess?” He looks at me as if he just realizes how bad it sounds.

“That’s some crazy shit. Only a pervert like Luka could’ve come up with it.”

Lenny’s brows tick in a furrow. “Well, I figured it was too obvious to work on you, but Luka insisted, we gave it a try, and hey, you went along with it. You seem better too.”

My stomach churns. “Who does he think he is? He has no right to set up some get-’er-done plan for me. I’m in charge of my own life, my own future, and…” I sigh. “Luka’s a pig.”

I mean it. Even though I’m disgruntled, I twist my arms around Lenny’s middle needing his nearness. I’m not exactly backing myself up, here, but Lenny doesn’t hold it against me. Instead he wraps me closer and nuzzles against my hair. Murmurs, “Shh, you’re okay, babe.”

“What about the days? Did he assign them too?”

Lenny nods, rocking us with his chin. “Yeah, which made sense.”

“Why, because you didn’t want to deal with me more than once a week?”

He chuckles. “It was more so that we’d all have our turns consoling you.”

“Sleeping with me, you mean,” I say, feeling slutty and berating myself for it in the same thought.

“I’m not gonna lie and say it’s not a pleasure to comfort you.”

I arch an eyebrow. “So I shouldn’t feel bad for you guys?”

“You should.”

I let out a huh?

“Did you see Marlon earlier?”

I bite my lip. “Yes?”

“That’s how most of us feel the rest of the week. Tuesdays are the shit.”

“Even when I go all witch-nutty on you?”

His grin gleams white. “Have you heard me complain? Sparks are the shit too.”
