"I’d sold my soul a long fucking time ago." ~ Kick (Relent)


SYNOPSIS
Evie Bishop grew up loving Kick Hanson. He loved her, too. They were inseparable. Best friends who looked out for each other. Until the day scandal hit their families and ripped everything apart, changing the course of all their lives.

Kick follows a dangerous path that leads him to the Storm MC where he spends his days buried deep in a violent and lawless world that is slowly consuming his soul. Evie works hard to escape the hopelessness that threatens to swallow her after her family is ripped apart. She builds a stable life for herself, however it's devoid of the one thing she has always longed for - Kick.

The love these two have for each other never wavers but sometimes in life, love isn't enough. Even in the times they find each other again, they can never make it work. Kick fights against bringing Evie into his world and Evie refuses a life with Kick if he won't fully commit to her. However, when circumstance throws them together again, Kick knows he must finally make her his. The trouble is, Evie's done. She loves him but she believes their chance to be together has long passed.

When Kick finally stakes his claim, will Evie relent and give their love another go, or has Kick left it too long to go after the woman who has owned his heart forever?

EXCERPT

Kick grinned and came towards me, his hands reaching for the button on my jeans. I slapped his hand away. “No,” I said firmly, giving him the evil eye. “You’ve had your fill this morning and I’m all out of orgasms.”
He smirked. “Baby, you are never out of orgasms.”
I raised my brows, trying to look stern. “I am today.”
Crossing his arms over his chest, he said, “So you’ve got a dentist appointment and then what?”
“Then I’ve got work. Why?”
“I’m just trying to figure out how long until I can get my dick out again.” When I smirked, he added, “You don’t seem to realise just what you do to me, Evie.”
I put my hand on my hip, settling in to hear this. “Tell me, Kick, what do I do to you?”
He uncrossed his arms and took the few strides separating us. “You cause an insatiable fuckin’ need in me that I’ve never experienced before. Even if I fucked you all day long, I’d still never get enough.”
Oh god.
My core clenched.
Maybe I did have more orgasms in me today.
He traced my lips and then cupped my cheek before kissing me. “I’m taking you to your appointment and then to work, and then I’m picking you up from work and taking you back to my house. Today we play my way. With my toys,” he growled, and I felt his growl all the way through my body.

Excerpt from Fierce


My eyes dropped to her chest. That top fit her tits like a glove; any man would struggle to keep their eyes off her chest. I wasn’t a saint and had no problem showing my appreciation so it took me more than a few moments to look back up to her face. She was shaking her head at me but there was a hint of a smile.

I smirked. “Sweetheart, if you’re gonna wear shit like that you’ve gotta expect men to stare.”

“Turn around.” 

“What?”

She repeated herself. “I said, turn around.”

“Yeah, I got that but I’m wondering where you’re going with this.”

She walked over to me until she was in my personal space. A sexy smile came over her face and she said, “I want you to turn around so that I can check out your ass cause baby, a woman’s got needs and if you’re gonna wear shit like that, her needs are gonna be fulfilled.”

I reached out and curled my hand around her neck, pulling her closer. “Fuck woman, what are you doing to me?”

Her breathing became ragged. “The same thing you’re doing to me.”

Happy New Year 2015



Happy New Year!!

WOW!  What a year 2014 was.  2013 was the year that changed my life, but 2014 was the year that showed me just what I am capable of.  2014 gave the world to me and in 2015 I am embracing everything the world has to offer and soaking it all in.  

2014 gave "me" back to me.

You see, I'd lost myself somewhere along the way... to be honest, I think I lost myself way before I even really got started.  My eyes have finally been opened and I see it all... and I am never ever shutting them again.





If you're a reader of my books, I want to take a moment to thank you from the bottom of my heart for buying them and reading them.  You will most likely never know the many ways you have helped change my life.  But let me just say that it has been changed completely.  

And all it took was for me to finally have the courage to follow my life long dream of publishing my own books.. to finally begin to believe in myself and to take a chance on myself... to step out of my comfort zone.



If you're starting the year with a goal of making some changes in your life but still struggling with that, I wish you all the best in following through on what you know deep in your heart you want to do.  

A few years ago, I had to close down a struggling business that I ran with my best friend... I walked away with debt and disappointment.  I was nearly 40, a single mother and had nothing but good friends and family who loved me dearly.  I had to start over from scratch and figure out what the hell to do with my life now.  I am not the kind of person to believe in failure but I have to admit to you that after years of trying things with no success, I was feeling like there was no hope.  I think that sometimes circumstances in life come together and push you into that corner where you feel like nothing you do is working.  You feel hopeless.  The reason I am telling you all this is to give YOU hope if you're feeling like I was.

A lot can happen in a year.

Keep pushing for what you want.  

Don't settle for less.  

Make your dreams come true!




*raises glass*

Here's to a kick-ass 2015 where we go after what we want and give it a damn good shot at making it all happen!

Roxie Chapter 3

For those of you following along with Roxie's story, I finally wrote chapter 3!  Sorry it has taken me so long.

If you haven't read the first two chapters, go here first.


CHAPTER 3


Roxie

I scanned the club.  It was packed in here which was usually how I liked it.  You could get lost and forget your shit for a few hours when the beat of the music and the crowd swallowed you.  Tonight though, I wished there were less people so I could find who I was looking for, and then get the hell out of here.  Far, far away from Liam.
The man was messing with my mind.  Not intentionally though.  No, he had the ability to fluster me simply by being in the same room.  I turned my gaze to him and found him watching me.  “What?” I snapped.
“You see him?”
God he was so serious.  Too serious for me.  “No.”  It came out all grumbly and I did nothing to hide that.
“Are you always this cranky?”
“Yes, but especially so when I’m forced to do something I don’t want to do.”
His shoulders tensed and his chest rose.  When he spoke, it was in a very controlled manner.  “Roxie, we’ve established you have a situation and we’ve also established this situation is intensifying so I’m not sure why you’re so against finding this man.  Don’t you want to know if he’s got something to do with this?”
“Yes, but I’d rather do that on my own.  I don’t like the fact you and your boss have pushed your way into my business.”
The vein in his neck pulsed and I sensed his frustration, but he held his cool.  “Zane owed Scott a favour and Scott was pretty adamant he wanted to call it in on this job.  If you’ve got a problem with someone trying to help you out, free of charge, I suggest you take that up with Scott.  Personally, if someone who was an expert in finding assholes like this wanted to help me for free, I’d take him up on the offer without complaining.”
Shit, he’d put me in my place and I stared at him, not sure what to say to that.
He waited for me to say something but when I didn’t, he asked, “You gonna help me find this guy?”
“Fine,” I said as I blew out a breath.  “But I want to talk to him first if we find him.”
“No.”
“No?”
“No, I don’t want you to say anything to him.”
I threw my hands in the air.  “Do you always do this, Liam?”
“Do what?”
“The thing where you give short answers without elaborating.”
“Did I need to elaborate?”
“Yes!”
He shook his head.  “No, I didn’t.”  He jabbed his chest with his thumb.  “I’m leading this investigation, Roxie, and I’ll give you information on a need-to-know basis but I’m not going to waste time going over details.”
I put my hands on my hips and glared at him.  Bossy men like Liam pissed me off.  It was why I struggled to understand the attraction Madison had to J.  “I’ll give you a heads up, Liam.  You need to run this whole investigation on a need-to-know basis with me otherwise I’m not having any part of it.”
His eyes widened and he returned my glare for a few moments.  And then he caved.  “Okay, sweetheart, we’ll do this your way but I’m giving you a heads up.  The moment I sense you’re in any kind of danger, I will do anything and everything to keep you safe and if that involves me withholding information, you’ll suck that up and run with it.”  His green eyes flashed me a warning not to argue and for once I kept my mouth shut.  He moved his face closer to mine before asking, “We clear?”
“Yes, we’re clear,” I muttered.  
“Good,” he huffed.
We stared at each other for another moment and then I dragged my gaze away from his to begin searching the club for the guy.

***

Half an hour later, we’d traipsed through the entire club and come up short.  The guy wasn’t here.  I turned to Liam with a questioning look.  “What now?”
“Now we have a drink, kill some time and resume the search in about half an hour.”
“He’s probably not coming here tonight.”  Having a drink with Liam was not high on my wish list.
He headed towards the bar.  “How many times have you met him here?”
“Twice.”
“Seems to me this is his pick-up place.”
We hit the bar and I leaned on it while looking up at him.  “You’re so sure of yourself, aren’t you?”
“Been doing this job for a long time, Roxie.  I know how to read people and their behaviours, so yeah I’m fairly sure I’m right.  Sometimes I’m not though, and I’ll always admit that.”  
My irritation lessened a little with his admission.  I respected people who could admit they weren’t always right.  And with my annoyance levels lowering, I softened towards having a drink with him.  “I’ll have a vodka and lemonade,” I said.
Surprise flickered on his face but he hid it quickly before ordering our drinks.  “How long have you owned the hairdressing salon?” he asked, turning his attention back to me.
“It’s my mum’s salon and she’s had it as long as I can remember.”
“I was under the impression you owned it.”
“She doesn’t work in it anymore, hasn’t for two years now, so I run it as if I do.”
“Is she okay?”
“Yeah, she’s just got other stuff to take care of and asked me to look after the salon.”
Our drinks arrived and Liam studied me while drinking some of his.  “Does she have other business interests?”
“No.”
His voice was slightly strained when he spoke.  It was the only sign of his frustration; Liam was skilled at controlling his emotions.  “Are you being intentionally guarded about this or is this just the way you always are?”
“I don’t see the need for you to know any of this,” I answered him as I took a sip of my drink.
“Roxie, I’m trying to learn about the salon as part of the investigation.  If your mother has other business interests, the problems at the salon could be tied to those.  I don’t ask questions just for the sake of making small talk.”
I huffed out a breath.  My irritation flared up at the fact he made sense.  “No, she doesn’t have other business interests.  She’s a foster mum and took on more kids a couple of years ago.  I took over the running of the salon so she’d have the time for the kids and to help bring money into the house.”
His mouth fell open.  “You help your mum raise those kids?”
“Yes.”
He blinked a few times and then just stared.  It ruffled me and I didn’t give him time to say anything before I demanded, “What’s so weird about that?”  
“Nothing,” he said in a soft voice.  “It’s an amazing thing to do.  Why would I think it’s weird?”
I began rubbing my forearm as the insecurity I’d lived with my entire life crept over my skin.  Fuck, I hated this shit.  People were always so quick to judge but Liam stood before me with an earnest look on his face and I knew without a doubt he held no judgement.  Taking a deep breath, I explained, “My mum was my foster mum before she adopted me.  She took me in when I was thirteen and I owe her so much.  My choice to support her and help her raise these kids seems to be one a lot of people find odd.  They can’t seem to understand a twenty-five year old woman giving up her time for that.  I’m sorry if I came across as a bitch just then but I’ve been dealing with judgemental assholes my whole life and I made an incorrect assumption about you.”
A smile spread across his face.  “Apology accepted, and sweetheart, fuck what people think.  You’re dedicating your time to making the lives of others better.  In my book that’s something to be admired not judged.”
Warmth spread through me and I knew I should have accepted his words with grace but my walls came up and I was helpless to stop them.  “Yeah, well you’re in the minority, dude,” I grumbled before finishing off my drink.
His eyes narrowed on me and he opened his mouth to say something before thinking better of it and remaining silent.  He tossed the rest of his drink down and then said, “Right, so for all intents and purposes you run the salon as if it’s yours and most people you meet would assume it’s yours.  Yes?”
I nodded, relieved we’d reverted back to the matter at hand.  “Yes.”
“Have you sacked any staff recently?”
“No.  Bobby and Tahlia have been with me for years and I trust them completely.”
As he processed that, my gaze caught sight of the guy I’d slept with, and I grabbed Liam’s arm as I leant close to him.  “The guy’s here.”  I jerked my head in his direction as I said that.
He verified which guy I meant before ordering, “Stay here.”  The tone he’d taken was one I was sure most women would take heed of.  I wasn’t most women and when he turned and went after the guy, I followed.
The minute the guy saw Liam, he bolted.  Liam pursued him and I pursued Liam.  We ended up out on the street and the crowd worked against us.  We kept sight of him for awhile but then he just vanished and as Liam came to a halt, I ran into him when I couldn’t slow myself down fast enough.
He turned angry eyes on me.  “I thought I told you to stay in the club,” he barked, finally losing his control.
“You seriously don’t think I’m the kind of woman to do as I’m ordered, do you?”
His face tightened and he glared at me.  “I’d fucking hoped you would.”  He threw his arms up and turned and paced away before coming back at me.  “Jesus Christ, Roxie, whoever is doing this shit to your salon isn’t fucking around and you need to realise how serious it is.  If I tell you to do something, it’s for your own safety.  Do you understand that?”
Anger swirled around us and yet right there with it was desire, and I warred with my response to him.  I wanted him but I also wanted to tell him to fuck off.  Shit, what a complicated mess.  I’d never experienced such contradictory emotions about a man before.
While I did battle with my feelings, he repeated himself.  “Tell me you understand that.”
I stared at him, anger winning out over desire.  “No, you need to understand I’ve always looked out for myself and I’m not going to stop that now just because you have this need to take over.  I’ve let you push your way into this situation but I’ll be damned if I’m not going to participate in it too.”
Our eyes remained locked in a fierce struggle before he grunted, “Fuck.”  He broke eye contact to look away for a moment, and then he turned back to me with a resigned look on his face.  “You’re not going to make this easy for me, are you?”
“I don’t see what’s so hard for you here, Liam.  Surely me helping you investigate is a good thing.”
“I’m used to doing jobs on my own,  I get in, do the job and then get out.  Having someone tag along is not how I operate.”
“Well on this job you’re just going to have to learn how to work with someone.”
“I can see that,” he muttered.
“Good,” I muttered back.
He watched me for another moment and then said, “If that guy makes contact with you, I want to be the first to know about it.  There’s something not right there.”
“Because he ran?”
“Because he ran without even seeing you.  Fuck knows what he’s involved in.”
“Okay,” I agreed, seeing his point.
“Thank fuck for that,” he said, clearly happy I’d agreed.  “Now, let’s get you home so I can get back to your salon and stake it out for the night.”
“Wait, you’re going to stay there all night to see if someone turns up?”
“Yeah.”
“Well, I want to be there too.”
He scrubbed a hand over his face and muttered, “Of course you do.”
I grinned at him but didn’t say anything else.
He waved his hand to indicate for me to start walking.  “Lead the way, sweetheart.”
I did as he said and thought about the night ahead and why I’d just demanded to spend it with him.  Sure, I wanted to catch the fucker who kept breaking in but on the other hand, the thought of spending hours with Liam caused a delicious excitement in me.  And if I was honest with myself, it was the excitement I was more drawn to.  Shit, this man was getting to me.
