How the hell was undercover cop, Conor Richmond, to know the prostitute he arrests is the chief’s daughter when her skirt is ripped dangerously high and showing a pair of sexy legs, or that she has a nervous habit of twisting off the top button of her shirts. She certainly didn’t look like a real estate agent selling property to a client whose first name was John.
She’s a cop, too? No way. He certainly doesn’t want to play house with her in an undercover sting operation after her cousin tells Conor she’s practically nun material.
…tastes the sweetest

Who would’ve thought jumping out of a cake at a bachelor party would pay so well…and cost so much!

He’s not sure anymore, and for a man who has always prided himself on being in complete control, he suddenly feels as though he’s adrift on a sea of raw emotions as he’s haunted by her beauty and dreams of a passionate night spent in her arms.
When fate throws them together once again, Blake knows this is his chance to get her out of his mind once and for all.

Undercover cop, Sam Jones, is ready for his vacation, but his plans
never included taking an uppity female alien to his cabin deep in the
piney woods of Texas. Sure, he fell a little in love when her sister showed
him the hologram of Lara, but he didn’t know a Healer would act so
damned superior or look so damned hot. He wants to kill her one minute and seduce her the next.
Planet Nerak is perfect, but when earthlings are accidently transported to Lara’s planet one of them infects an Elder. As a Healer, Lara must test earth plants to find a cure, but Sam doesn’t seem pleased by her presence. He should, for she is from a much superior race.
Healers are set above everyone but the royals. A Healer must meditate to keep her mind one with the universe. It is not permitted to touch a Healer less they disturb her aura. Sam does not seem to know these rules, and worse, he doesn’t seem to care. She only hopes she can find a cure soon because Sam is affecting her aura in an odd, but rather pleasurable way.
Special agent Roan Hendrix will train anyone if it’ll get him off injured leave and back on active duty. Besides, Joe says she’s nerakian. Roan figures she’s a warrior. Even though they’ve never actually had a war on their planet, they still train. A week of his time at the most.
Lyraka is more than happy to escapee the confines of her mother’s artist colony to train for the interplanetary elite force, but Joe failed to mention her trainer was obnoxious, stubborn and downright sexy. The solitude of her mother’s colony is starting to look better and better, and a whole lot safer.
Joe failed to explain to Roan that Lyraka is only half nerakian and the other half is earthling, and apparently he didn’t think it was important to mention she’s not a warrior and has in fact lived her life in seclusion. Joe could’ve at least told Roan that her abilities are heightened, rather than lessened, by her mixed blood. Joe also left out the fact she was the most mesmerizing, obstinate woman Roan would ever meet.
How is Roan supposed to train someone as green as Lyraka? Especially when the stakes just went up.
Football superstar, Cal Braxton, more than earned his bad boy rap. He escapes his spoiled ex fiancé and the reporters who keep dogging him, and goes to his brother’s dude ranch, thinking he’ll get a little R&R while helping out his brother. He never planned on the tenacious, Nikki Scott, aka undercover reporter, showing up. He also doesn’t count on her being sexy as hell with a bod meant for hot, sweaty, sex.

Nikki Scott doesn’t do fluff pieces, but she owes her editor. When she gets a good look at the very naughty Cal Braxton, she figures going to the country to get her story might not be so bad. She’d definitely do him.
Except she doesn’t count on the only available space at the dude ranch being the old, isolated homestead or everything that goes with it: a psycho rooster, a resident ghost, and a godawful outhouse. She refuses to run from anything. She didn’t earn her nickname the Barracuda because she ran away from stories!
Nikki Scott might just have met a shark in Cal Braxton.

Can a flamboyant ghost bring these two couples together, or will he only make the situation worse?
Two stories from USA Today Bestselling author Karen Kelley that will have you laughing out loud one minute, and fanning yourself in the next. Deemed "Romances Rising Funny Girl" by New York Times bestselling author Sharon Sala.
I've never seen anyone with worse fashion sense than Katie. But as she sat at one of the tables in the coffee shop, laptop open, she removed those god-awful black glasses, and nibbled her bottom lip. Then she smiled, and transformed before my eyes.
I wanted her.
I'm a good girl--with very naughty thoughts.
Jaxson is willing to help with my writing. I ran into him at the coffee shop. The guy is drop-dead gorgeous. I'm talking six-pack abs, broad chest, and oozing sex appeal. I thought he worked there. Nope, he owns the place, and he's also a very famous author.
His help means I might actually escape my demonic boss, and living with my twin sisters, who are demanding as hell, but hey, it's free rent. If I can turn my writing into a paying career, I'm outta there.
But just how far am I willing to let him go when I stumble over the love scenes? Am I brave enough to break all the rules? In the name of research, of course.
I like my salsa the same way I like my women—hot! But nothing can prepare me for Makenna. She’s stubborn, reckless, and lives for the challenge. Oh hell, she reminds me of me.
I have a feeling moving her to the more experienced group of hikers bound for the backcountry is a bad idea, but I can’t come up with a reason not to.
Not touch his salsa? I’ll prove to Nash that I can handle anything he can dish out. I admit, I didn’t expect his salsa to be habanero hot. So what do I do? I eat a little more!
Sometimes I don’t think before I act, but I will not back down from a challenge. Tell me I can’t do something and I’m all over it.
But when unexplained accidents start to happen, the small group suddenly faces challenges they hadn't expected.
It really sucked catching my forever friend giving my forever guy a blowjob on my brand new couch. I did the only thing I could do—tossed them both to the street! Then I drowned my sorrows in shots of tequila and chocolate chip, cookie dough ice cream.
Absolutely no one breaks up on December first! What about all the Christmas parties? I’ll be pitied, a fifth wheel.
And it’s especially bad when the rent is coming due on my apartment. I need a roommate—fast!
But my sweet brother comes through. His techy roommate (I’m thinking pocket protector and plaid shirt) from college has a temporary consulting job, and needs a place to stay for the next few weeks. He’s some kind of software wizard. I don’t care as long as he has half the rent—which he does.
But sweet Jesus, I didn’t expect Noah to look like a walking, talking, tanned Greek God. And, oh good Lord, he also brought along the horse he calls a puppy.
My ex roomie from college has come through again. An apartment in downtown Dallas, near where I’ll be working for the next few weeks. No leases, no deposit—just pay my rent on time.
I don’t really care that it’s with his little sister. Lucas showed me a picture of her once. She was gangly, heavy glasses, and wore braces. I figure she’s the type to keep her nose in a book.
Until the day I moved in and was proven wrong. His little sister had grown up. I’m talking, she could make a dead man sit up and take notice, grown up.
Definitely off limits.
Besides, I think she has a problem with Huck, my dog. Yes, I know he has some…intestinal issues and can be a little gassy, but he’s a growing boy. The best thing for us to do is stay out of Amelia’s way.
Yeah right, like that’s going to happen when we’re living in the same apartment day after day, night after night….
I will never forget the passionate night I spent with Sawyer Gabriel.
No, I really do mean never. That was the night I got pregnant, but it was his demon beast cat's fault. Then I discovered what Sawyer really was, so I fled his apartment and never looked back.
Almost nine months later, he's back in the country, except now he's my new boss. I don't want him in my life, so when he overhears me making a 'date' with the dogs I sometimes watch, and he thinks the worst, I let him.
I still can't believe Mia isn't who I thought she was, but when I overhear her talking about how she enjoys Huck, Max, and Chester in her bed, what else am I to believe?
For the sake of the baby she's carrying, I have to show her the error of her ways. But dammit, I still have feelings for her.

When I barged into the adjoining bedroom early the next morning, I naturally expected to see my best friend, not the very naked man with a dragon tat curling around one muscular arm, or that he would make an offhand remark about my very sheer nightie.
Ryder Hayes is a smart ass, definitely no gentleman, and I never want to see him again!
Except he’s the best man, and I’m the maid of honor. I’m pretty sure he’ll ruin my idea of a fairytale wedding for my best friend.
Samantha is hot! As soon as I saw her in that nearly see-through nightie, I knew I wanted her.
But she has my number: I’m a confirmed bachelor, and plan to stay that way. She’s all about finding Mr. Right. Maybe I can convince her to have fun with Mr. Wrong until he comes along?
Yeah, I’ll be her sex toy, and she won’t even need to change my batteries.

I came to Texas for one reason—closure. But I don’t know if I have the courage to face my past, to finally say good bye when my heart feels as if it’s splintering into thousands of tiny pieces.
New town. New job.
I’m a damned good paramedic. I don’t want to be your friend. I don’t do close relationships. I just want to do my job. But dammit, Layne is breaking past all my carefully erected barriers. How many times can I be hurt without it destroying me? He makes me feel things I don’t want to feel. He makes me feel alive.
Just because I’m a paramedic doesn’t mean I have to fix everyone, but when Fiera hires on, I can tell she’s broken, even though she hides behind a tough exterior. I certainly don’t want to get involved in anything long-term. I should stay away. Keep my distance.
Yeah sure, like that’s going to happen when she’s pushing all the right buttons. She’s sexy and she’s beautiful…and she needs help. I have a feeling I won’t be her knight in shining armor, though.
But as Fiera begins to unravel her past, she uncovers secrets and betrayals. Will she be able to face the lies that surround her?
At times intense, but with moments that will make you laugh out loud, and others that tug at your heartstrings. Rescue Me can be a standalone book in the Hayes brothers series, #4, but it’s still better when you read them in order.

I don't face things head-on. I’m a procrastinator. I know my faults, and that’s a big one. Which is why I’m not going to marry Daniel. Nope, I’m headed back to the Texas Hill country. I’ve already leased my own veterinarian clinic.
Except when I stopped by the ER to see my grandpa (he’s a doctor), I didn’t expect to see my old crush, Riley Buchannan, who’s still sexy as ever and still makes my heart beat just a little faster than normal.
Or that he would insist I stitch his leg because he has to get back to his ranch. His mare is about to drop her first foal. Is it my fault he didn’t ask what kind of doctor I am? I would’ve gladly told him I’m the new veterinarian.
Whitney’s home and all grown up. I guess I should’ve asked what kind of doctor she was before I insisted she stitch up my leg. She sort of owes me, but every time I ask her out, she turns me down.
Until her ex-fiance and her mother show up.
When she hires me to be her pretend boyfriend for the weekend, how can I say no? It’s kind of cute, her thinking I need the money.
But will my paid services extend to the bedroom?
I might not get the chance to find out when I underestimate Daniel. He’s full of all kinds of surprises, and none of them good.
