ABOUT GIA


Gia Bailey loves to write steamy, sweet, short romances to keep her warm during the cold Scottish nights. All her heroes, from mountain men to billionaires, are possessive, obsessive alpha males, who go OTT for the women they fall for. And the heroines? Shy, sweet, smart, ambitious, and everything in between, these ladies always get their happy endings. 


When not writing, she lives with her own burly Russian mountain man and all-knowing four year old, and enjoys baking, reading, jumping in muddle puddles (it’s Scotland, so there are lots), and inventing elaborate dreamworlds to play in. After all, life’s too short for anything other than a HEA.

Hailing from the notoriously sunny South Africa, Logan Fox writes deliciously dark and twisted romance. Her books feature gruff, grumpy alphas that, although broken, can almost always redeem themselves to their feisty heroines. Her couples have enough chemistry to fog up an ice rink, and her stories the kind of the grit and grime she loves reading herself.

KALI

I don’t know why I agreed to the stranger photo session when Ellie asked. It must have been that family thing. I’m not looking forward to it, but it’s a step toward getting myself back to the person I used to be. Before I lost my mom. Maybe. Meeting a stranger and doing something new is what I need to put some of this grief down.

I’m not expecting to turn around and be greeted with a man like Axel. He’s not the kind of guy I normally go for with his clean- cut appearance and perfectly tailored suit. Does he even have any tattoos? How does he knock me off balance? Why does he look at me like I’m his?

It’s probably just the stranger session. It’s acting. Doesn’t mean I can’t have a good time with him. It’s only one night.

Just one night…or so I thought.

AXEL

I work too much, but it keeps the loneliness at bay and my head on straight. I almost punched my best friend and business partner when he told Steve that I’d do some stranger photo shoot. All I want to do is get the new club open and cement our new partnership with Steve. I guess part of doing that is making his family happy.

I wasn’t looking forward to it, but when I turn around and see Kali everything else ceases to exist. She has walls around her heart to protect the broken pieces. I’ll show her that I can help heal her. She might not be what I was keeping my eyes open for, but that doesn’t matter. With every moment I’m around her, I find she’s better than I ever dreamed.

I can tell by the look in her eyes that she thinks this is only one night, but I’ll prove one night turns into forever for us.

She’s the woman I’ve been waiting for.


**18+. If you like alpha heroes and an insta-love story that is sweet but isn’t necessarily simple, then this is for you. No cheating with a guaranteed HEA. It is a standalone and the fifth in the Banks Ink. series, but it would be more enjoyable if you’re caught up with this Denver family.

Warning: This story does contain casual cannabis use, but not to worry, they live in a legalized state and are responsible members of society.**

Title: Playing House 
Series: The Playboys of Sin Valley #1 
Author: Cassie-Ann L. Miller
Genre: Small Town Brother’s Best Friend Romance 






Cover




Blurb


I only showed up to crash my best friend’s sister’s wedding. So how did I become the groom?! Oops!

When I charged up those courthouse steps to stop Sera’s wedding, I didn’t exactly have a plan.

But there’s no way I was letting my best friend’s little sister marry some no-good tool who doesn’t deserve her.

Let’s just say things got out of control. Fast.

Now, the wedding is off. And Sera is crushed. And I’m just trying to be a good friend.

“Come stay at my place. Until you’re back on your feet.”

“Have some tequila. It’ll ease the pain.”

“And what’s a few much-needed orgasms between friends?”

Well, maybe I crossed the line with that last one.
Oh, but it gets worse…

Because we just woke up naked and hungover. And Sera’s wearing a big, ugly diamond ring.

On second thought, “oops!” might be an understatement.

I mean–I’m Jason Bellino. Confirmed bachelor. Pro football’s ultimate playboy…I don’t do relationships.

And she’s my complete opposite. A good girl. A rule-follower. The Sweetheart of Sin Valley…She doesn’t do no-strings-attached flings.

Talk about ‘opposites attract’.

Now, we’ve got this whole accidental marriage situation going on. Hot damn. I’m completely in over my head.

But married life isn’t half-bad, I guess. I could get used to the wall-shaking orgasms, the laughing and bantering together over our breakfast cereal, her cheering me on at my football games.

I should be trying to get rid of her. But more and more, I just want her to stay.

So how do I convince my oopsie-wife to play house with me…forever?

Playing House is a steamy, laugh-out-loud, best friend’s sister, accidental marriage small town romance. It is set in small town Iowa and is book one in the Playboys of Sin Valley series.

EXCERPT
“What do you think you’re doing?”

I swallow against a dry mouth. “Leo, I should go.”
“The fuck you should. What are you talking about?”
“I know it seems bad.” My words tumble out on top of one another, and once again, I’m the girl with her back against the wall, facing off with the Beast of Bishop’s Landing. Only now I know he can be hurt. He can be wounded. “It is bad. But I have to talk to Aunt Caroline. I have to try and make her see reason.”
Leo stares at me like I’m a stranger. Like he’s never seen me before. Like I didn’t hold him in my arms and beg for him to live. “There’s no talking to that bitch.”
Tears well up in my eyes. Damn it. I wasn’t going to cry, but it’s all so close to the surface. “I know it was Caroline who hurt you. She’s the one who made those scars on your back.” I gulp down a sob and stifle it. Suffocate it. I’m not doing that. I won’t. “You told me yourself that you almost died. And now she tried to kill you again.”
The horror in Leo’s eyes transforms. It sharpens until it could cut me and bursts into flame. He stalks toward me and the hairs on the back of my neck rise. My body stills. There are three options in the face of a deadly predator. Flee. Fight. Freeze. I couldn’t run for the door if I wanted to. I don’t know how I ever did it before.
Leo stops with inches to spare. I’m not afraid of him, I’m not, but I’m trembling under my pink coat. Okay. I am afraid. But not of him. Not only of him. Of the way I feel right now, shaky and lightheaded and on the verge of tears from a love that feels completely out of control.
He waits, and I stand there like a fool, staring at the front of his shirt. There is a bandage underneath. A bullet wound. From putting his own body between me and a gun. A tear slips down my cheek and falls to the carpet. I’m too hot in the coat, too hot standing this close to him. Now that there’s a closed door between us and the rest of the world, I’m torn between bravery and the urge to fall apart and let him catch me.
My own fallen angel takes my chin in his hand and tips my face up, his grip hard and possessive. “Look at me.”
“I am looking at you.”
But I’m not. My eyes are still caught on his shirt—on the fabric concealing where he was shot. Leo gives my chin a terse shake. “Okay,” I whisper, meeting his eyes. Gold-streaked darkness waits for me, clear as the night sky. His gaze is sharp as a shot. Pain glimmers there, hidden behind the fiery beauty of those eyes. It’s not concealed behind a haze of painkillers. My pulse races at the contact. The heat of his fingers on my face is second only to the burn where his eyes meet mine.
“You,” he says, his tone deliberate, “are not going anywhere.”

I’m messed up. I could say it was a result of my childhood, but honestly I blame myself. The medicine made me feel numb; the blood made me feel high. He wasn’t supposed to be mine, but although he was scared in the beginning, he didn’t run from my demons. He found beauty in my flaws, beauty in the cracks that barely held me together.

I had it good—various girls of the week, my dream job, stability—and even then, I knew deep down something was missing. Madalynne opened a door for me; Jacqueline lit the flame. She wasn’t perfect—far from it—but underneath the pain and the scars, I saw her. Sometimes the ones worth fighting for don’t know their worth. Sometimes being broken is beautiful.

Excerpt 

Madalynne

“You’re making the biggest mistake of your life you know,” my best friend, Kendall Walker, states as we approach the front doors of our high school.

“About what?” I ask, my hand on the door handle, frozen, waiting for an answer.

“Pushing Parker away—you’re going to regret it, Maddy. He’s amazing and you know it.” Her green eyes twinkle when she speaks about him. Kendall has a soft spot for Parker because his best friend also happens to be her boyfriend. We all 

grew up together.

“Kendall, you have no idea what I’m going through,” I snap, causing her to jerk backward, her blond curls whipping back with her.

“Oh, I’m sorry I don’t know what it’s like to lose a brother in war…but you forget my mother died when I was four years old. Try experiencing that and then come back and tell me I have no idea what you’re going through.” Her tone is hurtful, and guilt immediately washes over me.

“Kendall.” My fingers reach for her arm. “I didn’t mean it like that. I’m sorry.”

She stares back at me, her icy green eyes piercing through me. I couldn’t move a muscle even if I tried. “You know what, Maddy? Save it. I’m tired of your bitchy attitude and your selfish ways.” She turns on her heel, tearing open the front 

door and stomping inside.
