“A fun, clever read, Last of the Red-Hot Riders is a charming, sexy, and humorous romp through the tiny town of Hell, Texas.” —Kat Martin, New York Times bestselling author

New York Times, USA Today Bestselling and Award-Winning Author

Cameron Dix knows that becoming an elite rider is the first step to realizing her dream: owning a special-needs equestrian academy. Only one thing stands in her way—and he’s big, tall, and sizzles like a Texas steak. Superhunk Saint Markham claims that he isn’t happy about all the women galloping into town, but the heat in his eyes tells Cameron a different story. What else can a fiery redhead do but let her hair down and give in to desire hot enough to melt her saddle?

Saint has seen what happens when women come marching into the Hell’s Outlaws Training Center: Strong men crumble. Problem is, he’s got rivals willing to train a talented lady rider like Cameron. But after one night of passion, he’s branded. And from the moment he kisses her ruby lips, Cameron is his—even if he’s too stubborn to admit it. Now Saint must stake his claim on a life of delicious sin with the woman he loves.

“Easy to read, quick book, written with humor and fun about a topic that can be paralyzing for some.” -Sean S.

Fear is a Crippling Disease. Luckily I’ve Got the Antidote.

In today’s world most people are just trudging along through life, huddled beneath an umbrella of limited potential. Staying underneath the umbrella is comfortable. It’s safe. There’s no risk of getting wet. But I’m here to tell you that umbrellas are dangerous. They’re handcuffing you to a life of mediocrity.

If you want to do anything truly amazing with your life, you’re going to have to get wet. You’re going to have to do things that scare you. You’re going to need to step out from underneath the umbrella. And into a world of fear and possibility.

I wrote this book for all of the people that are sick and tired of being umbrella-dwellers.

If you feel like you’re capable of great things, if you feel like your purpose in life hasn’t quite been fulfilled yet, if you feel like you’ve been living beneath your potential…this book is for you.

I’m going to teach you how to do the things that terrify you.

The only difference between the greatest people in history (Albert Einstein, Benjamin Franklin, Martin Luther King Jr., etc.) and everyone else is that the “greats” were willing to step out from under the umbrella. They did the things that scared them. They overcame their discomfort and did what needed to be done, no matter how frightening.

You can be the same way.

Here’s just a taste of what you’ll learn in this book:

Why you can’t trust Disney.

How being a terrible liar can help you overcome fear.

Why Benjamin Franklin is swankier than you.

Why exaggerating will probably kill you.

How my friend gained the courage to quit his job, breakup with his girlfriend, and move to Japan to become a real-life ninja. (This seriously happened.)

Why my mom terrifies me.

And much, much more…

Oh yeah, plus somewhere in there I wrote a whole chapter about the psychology of fear or something really serious like that. But who cares about that sorta stuff?

A FIGHT TO THE DEATH: A single Marine platoon, tasked with protecting an embassy on a hostile alien planet. An embassy – and the human enclave around it – that soon finds itself surrounded by armed mobs. Can the Marines and a ragtag band of civilian and Navy personnel survive long enough to be rescued?

But in order to make it to the top tier of sports reporting, she needs to score an interview with the most private and elusive athlete in baseball, Patriots’ superstar Jake Miller.

On the rebound from a devastating injury, the last thing Jake needs is a pushy female reporter distracting him.

Sleeping together could damage both their careers, and Maddie is all about saying no. But when it comes to the game of love, Jake is playing to win.

Nate Carter, star pitcher for the Philadelphia Patriots, is at the height of his game, with a great career and the most gorgeous women in town in full pursuit. Nate has everything he wants, or at least he thinks he does, until he meets the beautiful and brainy Dr. Holly Bell. He’s totally up for a hot affair, and Holly turns out to be the hottest.

But when the lovely doctor starts changing the rules, Nate realizes he just might be playing for keeps.

Sports journalist Martha Winston’s life goes sideways when she inherits a Florida soccer team from her father.

But she needs to get a financial infusion fast, or else lose the team to the wolves baying at her door.

Former British soccer hero Tony Branch wants to add Martha’s team to his growing sports empire. But he wants it strictly on his terms—full control, not a partnership. When Martha turns him down flat, he’s determined to change her mind by any means necessary. If that includes using the sexual heat flaring between them, Tony is more than willing to play a game of seduction.

Espionage was nothing new to Captain Larry McGraw and the crew of the USS Charlotte, a Los Angeles–class fast attack submarine. But this mission certainly was. Docked onto the hull of his sub was the new, state-of-the-art Advanced SEAL Delivery System, complete with 16 highly trained SEALs.

Orders from the White House were simple, yet clear. Penetrate the Bo Hai Bay–a mere hundred miles from Beijing–and linger while the SEALS conduct nighttime missions. Simple, as long as they weren’t detected. But if spotted inside the shallow bay, the orders were clear. McGraw couldn’t let the Charlotte or the ASDS fall into Chinese hands, even if it meant destroying both.

Proving his innocence, and nailing those responsible, will propel David from the corridors of elite trading floors in the untouchable and hubristic spires of Manhattan to the row houses and local mobsters of his native Bensonhurst. It will force David–a man who has always been stuck between two worlds–to dig beneath the surface separating the two, all the way to an impenetrable gold vault filled with hundreds of tons of untraceable commodities.

When Mari Baker moves in next door, Eli Rhodes is captivated by her fiery spirit and brunette curls. Sure, she’s nothing like the singles bar hook-ups he usually entertains, but someone like her could make a man change his ways.

When Mari Baker moves in next door, Joe Rhodes is unofficially engaged to Beth Havland, so why is this little snippet of a woman getting under his skin? Yeah, she’s sweet and smart and shares his faith, but he and Beth have made plans. At least they’ve talked about making plans.

When Mari Baker moves to Colorado Springs, she’s looking for a fresh start–a new path. The first path she walks, however, is up the steps of the big Victorian house next door after she slips on the ice and throws her purse down the storm drain before she even has a chance to open the door of her new rental. The Rhodes brothers become her rescuing angels that night, and the next path that forms is the one between their house and hers.
