Single Dad’s Romance #3

14.06.2021

ADAM

At forty-three, I’ve experienced my fair share of love and even betrayal.

That very same heartbreak gave me the gift of two adolescent boys, and I owe it to them to be a good example.

But the proverbial girl next door has captured my attention and has me craving things I shouldn’t want. Not with Everly. It’s almost shameful how much of my headspace is consumed by someone half my age.

EVERLY

I may be young, but I’m no stranger to failed relationships and heartbreak. In fact, the last time I fell in love, it almost killed me.

But everything about Adam, the sexy and much older man next door, draws me in. I don’t care that he’s nearly twice my age or that he has two young sons. I would do just about anything to make him mine.

Can I convince him that age is just a number, or will he shut me out because he’s also my uncle’s good friend? today!

The Discord Series, #1

14.06.2021

It’s amazing what you’re capable of when you have nothing to lose…

Collateral damage.

That’s what my family was—collateral damage in a mafia war.

They were my whole life. But I’ve found something else to live for.

Vengeance.

I was a wife. A daughter.

Now I’m Havoc.

Every last one of the bastards responsible will die. No one can stop me.

Not even him.

Nico Romano, Don of the Italian mafia, is a complication I don’t need.

He’s too much like the monsters I hunt—savage, ruthless, cold. An enemy. I shouldn’t want him.

But I do.

Falling for him might cost me my shot at revenge and the only thing of value I have left.

My soul.

Too bad I’m starting to think he might be worth it…

Havoc, book one in The Discord Series, is a sexy, dark and angsty, enemies-to-lovers mafia romance featuring a heroine who will stop at nothing to avenge her family, and the brooding, alpha anti-hero who will do anything to keep her…even when it involves kidnapping. Happily ever after guaranteed. Download today, but grab a glass of ice water first. You’re gonna need it.

Be Forewarned***

This is a dark mafia romance. There are mentions of family loss, scenes with explicit violence, and some dub con. There is a HEA for this couple, but the overall story arc does continue from book to book.

Starfighter Training Academy #2

15.06.2021

I’m obsessed with the game.

I spend so many hours playing that I dream about dangerous missions on other worlds…and my gorgeous, in-game training partner, Kassius. That is, until I win. I beat the Starfighter Training Academy.

But is it a game? Or alien software designed to recruit new, unsuspecting soldiers for a war in another star system? Because when my hot as heck alien shows up at my workplace demanding I leave Earth and travel to the Vega system? What? When he informs me it’s my duty to fight Queen Raya and the Dark Fleet? Claims he wants me as much as I’ve craved him? Let’s just say things get crazy.

Facing the truth is never easy, but when I arrive at the Elite Starfighter base I learn that Kassius cheated the system, hacked into the game, and lied to everyone on two worlds to make me his.

Now who’s obsessed?

The Driven World

17.06.2021

Tailspin is a sexy, swoon-worthy contemporary romance novel written in K. Bromberg’s Driven World Project.

Aidan

When I left Harrington Heights, I vowed never to return.
In the years that followed, I built not one empire but two.
Aidan Wright no longer existed.
Now, I was Aidan Decker.
Finance mogul. Race team owner.
I had the world at my feet.
I should have been happy.
Or, if not happy, at least content.
But I was neither.
What was worse; I had no idea what to do to fix it.
Not until an old friend talked me into coming dangerously close to the hometown I despised to celebrate his upcoming nuptials.
A bachelor party.
At a gentleman’s club.
And who should appear onstage but the only girl I’d ever loved.
The girl I couldn’t bear to hold back because I knew she was destined for so much more than “The Heights” had to offer.
More than I had to offer back then.
The girl who’d long ago abandoned this place to chase her dreams of starring on Broadway.
Dreams changed; I knew that better than anyone.
But there was one dream I’d held tight to since I was fourteen.
And it was right in front of me for the first time in a decade.
I wasn’t about to let her go a second time.

Kinlee

Aidan Decker.
Everyone knew the name.
Even I knew it, if only in passing.
But until I strolled into the club that night, I had no idea that Aidan Decker was Aidan Wright.
My Aidan.
My best friend growing up.
The one who bid me goodbye on graduation day with a single, sweet kiss and a promise I never forgot.
Not even after ten years apart.
Unfortunately, we were completely different people now.
Maybe all that had changed about him was his name.
But my whole world imploded and the girl he knew was long gone.
The friend he’d shared his dreams with was living in a nightmare, one to which he didn’t deserve to be exposed.
All that was left was pain and fear and the will to survive.
There was no way I could let Aidan back in.
No matter how much I wanted to.
We might have been in the same room for the first time in years, but we were still worlds apart.

Desire #2

17.06.2021

Ariana Rose’s Entwined, is an emotionally complex and sensual contemporary romance sequel to her novel Twisted, written in K. Bromberg’s Driven Worlds project.

Entwining hearts, lives, and souls might be harder than we ever imagined.

Elijah
I know recovery won’t come swiftly. It never seems to whether it’s physically, mentally or more difficult still, the pain of deception from those you consider family.
Dylan has cemented herself as my compass, lifeline, and guide. We’re managing more obstacles at once than any couple should have to. Professionally, personally, and the hardest one for me, internally. There are hills that may be too tough to climb.
I didn’t need to deal with the lies that seemed to follow me everywhere, ones that could tear apart the relationships that mean the most to me. No promises and no lies should be two easy rules to follow.
For Wes, they’re also the easiest to break.

Wes
Elijah was my wing until he wasn’t. I was happy to finally let him fly with someone I felt worthy of that honor. I never thought his little sister would slide in and take his place beside me. The need for speed could have dire consequences when I’m involved.
Hidden truths are a natural part of my profession. However, when they twisted and slammed into the people I called family, I feared it could create a tailspin we might never recover from.
I’m used to being a revolving door of wrongs. I loved the thrill of the hunt, all the possibilities of zero attachment. The moment I saw her, really saw her, was the moment I knew. I loved her. I love Hayley Sawyer.

Some family you are given. Some family you choose. Will this be the end of our family as we’ve known it?
