Maddie hates werewolves and has since the day Axel broke her heart. But a dark shadow looms over her ranch, one that threatens everything she holds dear. To protect her sisters, she’d do just about anything. Even if that means trusting the wolf who betrayed her.

This wolf only has eyes for her.

Axel has made many mistakes in his life, but the worst was abandoning his mate—the only woman he’s ever loved. When the body of one of his pack-mates turns up on Maddie’s ranch, Axel realizes she’s in far more danger than ever. She needs him, even if she refuses to admit it. He walked away once, but now he’s been given a second chance. And this time, he won’t screw it up.

Country devil. Tongue like heaven.
They call him the Liquor King.
Wild, untamed, dangerous, and undeniably dominant.
This is wrong. This is filthy.
…But this just might be love at first lick.

Winona:

First he made me scream, then he made me gasp for more.

I made a deal with the devil. I’ll be his fake wife for a cut of the huge inheritance he’s about to land. It’s all supposed to be pretend. But that’s before I get lost in those gorgeous, fierce eyes. That’s before I fall for that filthy mouth, those tempting lips, and that body carved out of marble.

…That’s before I wake up hungover, half-naked, and totally actually married to the hottest, most toe-curlingly alpha moonshine-making outlaw in Sugar County.

I’m so screwed.

Silas:

Being a Marine sniper left me a little wild. But seeing her? Well, that makes me crazy.

The moment I lay eyes on her, I know one thing: she’s mine. That firecracker mouth, those curves that beg for my filthy hands to hold on tight, and that ass a man could sink his teeth into. She has me obsessed and driven to claim by any means necessary – even if I have to throw her over my shoulder caveman-style.

Sweet as pie and hot as summer rain. She’ll be my captive. My prize. My perfect country bride. I’m gonna show her how we do liquor out here in the country.

…And I could sip her sugar all day long.

Dominic Ramos is a Premiership football player with a secret. There are no trophies for being gay in his game. Locked into his rep as the meanest defender on the pitch, keeping his secret is soul-crushing, but love has no place in his sport, even if his soft heart craves it.


Lucky Coleman is on his knees when he meets a man with more money than sense. It’s a Grindr hook-up for cash, not a love match, but dreaming of his desperate, kind eyes earns a place amongst his numerous bad habits.


Meeting once was risky, twice pushes Dom’s courage to the limit. Losing Lucky seems inevitable, but his tight grip on his image counts for nothing when Lucky starts to fall.


Catching him could cost Dom everything, but if he can set his heart free, getting Lucky long term might be a risk worth taking.

Cover Reveal ~ Center of Gravity

 

 

 
Release Date: October 4 2018
 
Cover Design: Jay Aheer @ Simply Defined Art 
 
Length: 98,000 words approx.
 
Blurb
 

Accountant Rob Macomb has a stable job that he’s good at and…that’s about it. A year of misfortune has left him seeking refuge from loneliness and grief behind his spreadsheets, punishing daily runs, and the occasional anonymous tryst. He wants nothing more than to bury the past and focus on his career, but he has one last task to complete: pack up his parent’s quaint beachside house and put it on the market.


Alex Andrews is an art school dropout with a penchant for Converse, Cracker Jack, and piercings. His dreams of finishing college and building a career in three-dimensional design crumble when his unemployed father receives a diagnosis that leaves the family reeling and bills mounting faster than Alex and his mom can keep up with them.


When Alex shows up as a part of the moving crew hired to help Rob clean out the house, things get awkward fast. Because it’s not the first time they’ve met, and their last encounter was memorable for all the wrong reasons. The attraction between them is undeniable, but Rob is bound and determined to push everyone away, and Alex is on the verge of spinning out of control.


Can a grumpy accountant and a bootstrapping artist find their center of gravity together, or are they on a collision course to heartbreak?


An emotionally-charged, slowburn m/m romance featuring an age gap, a Jack Russell terrier hell-bent on world domination, steamy hijinks, and of course, a hard-won happily ever after. This is a standalone first book in the Nook Island, Georgia series.

Neve Wilder lives in the dirty South, where the summers are hot and the winters are…sometimes cold. She is a mom to three rambunctious weebeasts who have joined forces in a mission to carpet the family home with toys and small items that really suck to step on at six in the morning.


She reads promiscuously, across multiple genres, but her favorite stories always contain an element of romance. Incidentally, this is also what she likes to write. Slow-burners with delicious tension? Yes. Whiplash-inducing page-turners, also yes. Down and dirty scorchers? Yes. And every flavor in between.


She believes David Bowie was the sexiest musician to ever live, and she’s always game to nerd out on anything from music to writing.


And finally, she believes that love conquers all. Except the heat index in July. Nothing can conquer that bastard.
