Melissa Foster
Released November 15th
World Literary Press

Stella “Stormy” Knight is an expert at hiding—her feelings, her past, and her identity. Sometimes all that hiding takes its toll, and she needs to come out from under that heavy suit of armor and cut loose—but it never takes her long to put it right back on and disappear without a trace.

Private Investigator Logan Wild is relentless in his pursuit to discover the truth for his clients. He works hard, plays even harder, and always walks away unscathed and untethered. Until he meets mysterious and sexy-as-hell Stormy, who leaves him craving more than a one-night stand.

Passion ignites, secrets are shared, and their deep connection is impossible to ignore. But in order to have a future, Logan must uncover Stormy’s dark past—and when he does, he’ll hold her fate in his hands.

Review- 5 Stars!

Melissa Foster has done it again and stepped up her game once again. This new series by Melissa Foster is something new for her and I am loving it! I love the way that she has upped the language in the story and the steamy romance scenes. Melissa never disappoints, but this is just something new for her and I have to say that I am not disappointed at all!

Stormy (Stella) is running from a bad relationship and is trying to lay low since her ex is supposed to get out of jail soon. Stormy is working in a bar where Logan goes to relax. When Stormy and Logan meet, the sparks immediately begin to fly and things definitely heat up with these two after dark. When Stormy is in trouble one night, Logan comes to her rescue. But will Logan be able to help Stormy in other way and even help her overcome her fears?

Logan is a bad boy PI that was a former SEAL. When I meet Logan, I knew that he was going to be so swoon worthy in the story. I love how Melissa Foster wrote his character though and did not make Stormy the damsel in distress that Logan was trying to save, instead they meet and things started to heat up between them on their own terms. Will Logan and Stormy be able to make things work in order to have a relationship? Is Logan going to be able to overcome his past and secrets that he has? If you like any of Melissa Foster's books at all, you have to read this series. So different for her and I am pretty sure you will be happy that you gave it a chance!

No last names. No strings. No ties.
Except of the silk variety.

Dr. Heath Wild and Allyson Jenner only wanted a simple tryst. But Heath couldn’t live with just one night, just one taste, of Ally—and Ally couldn’t escape the memory of his hands on her skin, the way he looked at her like she was his obsession, or his seduction, which had pushed her to the edge and had made her want to do things she never had before.

One night leads to one tantalizing phone call. Can one phone call lead to forever?

Review - 5 Stars

I have to say that I am falling hard for these Wild Boys in this series. Melissa Foster has written them to where they are smoking hot and have you reading the story from beginning to end without wanting to put your Kindle down at all. I love Melissa Foster's writing style and she has just set the bar really high with this steamy series!

Heath is an orthopedic doctor that has to go to conferences pretty often. When Heath travels, he usually lets loose and lets himself indulge in one night stands. When Heath meets Ally at the conference that he is attending, he immediately know that she is the one that he wants to make his one night stand. Ally is volunteering at the conference and knows how doctors can be, they only look out for themselves.

When Ally and Heath talk after deciding to go forward with their one night stand, they soon realize that they are from the same city. Not only are they from the same city, but they work at the same hospital. What are the odds?? When Heath touches Ally for the first time, he knows that there is something about Ally that is different than any other woman for him. When Heath can not get Ally out of his mind the next day, he knows that he has to see her again. The next night he sees Ally again and still can not loose that feeling of knowing that there is something different about Ally that he has never experienced with anyone else.

Will Heath and Ally be able to overcome their insecurities and trust issues from previous relationships or will they let their past ruin their chance at what they could have with each other? You will fall in love with Heath and Ally and the whole Wild Boys series as I have. You need to read this series if you love anything that Melissa Foster has written. Much steamier than anything else she has written yet! Love it though!

REVIEW- 5 Stars

Jackson is the third installment in the Wild Boys After Dark series from Melissa Foster. This series centers around 4 brothers that are wild and crazy and have wild and crazy encounters with women. These are steamy reads that will have you turning the pages quickly.

When we got a glimpse of Jackson at the end of Heath's book, I was excited to read this one. I knew that Jackson's book would be steamy, but man, Melissa made this one extra steamy with these two!

Jackson and Erica have been life-long friends and have a friends with benefits relationship going on that both of them agree to. The two of them go on an annual camping trip that they both look forward to and it is time for that trip once again when we meet them in this story. When Erica's boyfriend of 9 months asks her to marry him the night before the camping trip, Erica tells him that she needs some time to think about it. Erica of course turns to her best friend, Jackson, to get advice and to figure out what she should do. Will this effect their relationship and make Jackson think twice about settling down or will this be the last camping trip for Erica and Jackson because of the proposal? You really need to read this one to find out.

Although I loved this story, I did have an issue with the fact that Erica's boyfriend that just proposed to her would actually let her go on the camping trip anyway, knowing that she and Jackson have the relationship that they do. There is no way that if I were in that position I would let my other half continue with the camping trip and I am sure that my husband would never have agreed to that when we were dating either. Other than that little fact, this is a great read. I know why they went on the trip still because we would not have to outcome that we do, but I just sort of got hung up on that fact. Thanks Melissa Foster for a great read and I can't wait to read the last book in this series

Four years ago at a film festival, Cici Fine met Cooper Wild, a man who turned her world upside down in the span of one deliciously perfect week. He was everything she’d ever dreamed of: sinfully sexy, intelligent, and incredibly loving. When the festival ended, they returned to their own hometowns with promises of forever. But Cooper disappeared, and Cici was left to raise the daughter he never knew about alone.

Cooper is finally thinking straight after years of being lost in grief from the tragedy that killed his father and left his mother blind. Now he’s on a mission to find the woman he left behind—the only woman he’s ever loved.

But Cici Fine is no longer a naive young girl. She’s a savvy businesswoman with big responsibilities, on the cusp of a life-changing move. When fate brings the two together, they’ll put the old adage to the test and find out if love really can conquer all.

Review - 5 Stars

Cooper is the last book in the Wild Boys After Dark series form Melissa Foster and I have to say that I think she saved the best for last in this case. Cooper is the youngest of the brothers and this story was just really sweet and drew me in from the beginning.

Cooper owns a successful photography business with his brother Jackson. When Cooper is at the festival 4 years prior, he meets CiCi and they fall in love immediately. When Cooper up and walked out on CiCi because of a personal tragedy, she did not think that she would ever get the chance to reconnect with him and tell him her secret. Cooper goes into a depressed state after his father was killed and his mother was left blind in an attack. Cooper watches his brother Jackson fall in love and he knows that he has already found the love of his life, it is just getting back to her that Cooper needs to do. Cooper is on a mission to find CiCi and get his love back.

When Cici is at the festival 4 years later, Cooper runs into her again. The sparks immediately begin to fly again and Cooper knows that there is something still there. Cooper explains to CiCi why he left like he did and what all he has been going through. CiCi still hides her secret from Cooper but when she finally tells him, the way that Cooper reacts will make you swoon over him. This story was so sweet that I could not get enough of these two. Will CiCi and Cooper be able to find their way back to each other? You have to read this sweet story and finish the series off with this great read. Thanks Melissa Foster for a great series and I can't wait to see what you have in store for us next! I can always count on you to provide us with great reads!!

"I was born in a small town in Kentucky. My family began poor, but worked their way to owning a restaurant. My mother was one of the best cooks I have ever known, and she instilled in all her children the value of hard work, and education.
Taking after my mother, I've always love to cook, and became pretty good if I do say so myself. I love to experiment and my unfortunate family has suffered through many. They now have learned to steer clear of those dishes. I absolutely love the holidays and my family puts up with my zany decorations.
For now, my days are spent writing, writing, and writing. I have two children who both graduated this year from college. My daughter does my book covers, and my son just tries not to blush when someone asks him about my books.
Currently I am writing five series of books- The Last Riders, The VIP Room, Predators MC, Biker Bitches, and The Dark Souls.
All my books are written for one purpose- the enjoyment others find in them, and the expectations of my fans that inspire me to give it my best.”

Excerpt: Final Debt

Cut’s voice physically hurt me as he forced me to my knees. The ballroom splendour mocked me as I bowed unwillingly at the feet of my executioner.
Velvet and hand-stitched crewel on the walls glittered like the diamonds the Hawks smuggled—a direct contrast to the roughly sawn wood and crude craftsmanship of the guillotine dais. No finesse. No pride. Just a raised podium, framework cushioning a large tarnished blade, and a rope dangling to the side.
“Don’t do this. Cut…think about what you’ve become. You can stop this.” My voice mimicked a beg but I’d vowed not to beg. I’d seen things, understood things, and suffered things I never thought I would be able to endure. I refused to cry or grovel. I wouldn’t give him that satisfaction.
“In five minutes, this will all be over, Weaver.” Cut bent to the side and collected a wicker basket.
The wicker basket.
I didn’t want to think about what its contents would be.
He placed it on the other side of the wooden block.
My lungs demanded more oxygen. My brain demanded more time. And my heart…it demanded more hope, more life, more love.
I’m not ready.
Not like this.
“No. No more talking. Not after everything you’ve done.” Ripping a black hood from his pocket, he didn’t hesitate. No fanfare. No second guesses.
I cried out as the scratchy blackness engulfed my face, tightening by a cord around my throat.
The Weaver Wailer chilled me. The diamond collar that’d seen what I’d seen and whispered with phantoms of my slain family prepared to revoke its claim and detach from around my neck.
This was it.
The Final Debt.
Cut pushed my shoulders forward.
A heavy yoke settled over the top of my spine.
I closed my eyes.
I said goodbye.
I waited to die.

One Week Earlier

I pushed back, gripping the handrails of the private jet, throwing my weight against Daniel’s incessant pushing. “Stop!”
“Get up the fucking stairs, Weaver.” Daniel jabbed his elbow into my spine.
I stumbled, bashing my knee against the high tread. “You can’t do this!” How had this happened? How had mere hours turned the entire universe against me? Again.
I wanted to smash every clock. Tear out the cog from every watch.
Time had once again stolen my life.
Daniel cackled. “I think you’ll find we can.” He shoved me higher.
My heart hurt—as if every mile between us and Hawksridge was a blade slicing me further from Jethro’s protection—a disharmony in an already discorded symphony.
One moment, I’d been love-bruised and adored, tiptoeing back into the Hall; the next, I was trapped, forced to dress in jeans and a hoodie, and obey Daniel as he lurked in my doorway, barking orders to pack a few meagre belongings.
He hadn’t left me alone.
His eyes followed my every move. I couldn’t grab the gun I’d hidden thanks to Jasmine. I couldn’t text Jethro to tell him I’d been caught. All I could do was run around my room with my lover’s release still damp on my inner thighs and submit to my nemesis.
The only saving grace was beneath Daniel’s hateful stare, I’d managed to pack the clothing I’d altered a few weeks ago. The cuffs full of needles and hems armoured with tools of my seamstress trade. Those garments were my only hope. There was no loophole. No way to refuse.
I had to trust Jasmine would get word to Jethro. That he would come for me…
Before it’s too late.
The desolation I’d suffered when Daniel first caught me faded to indignant anger. I’d been so close to being free. I’d been in Jethro’s arms. I’d been away from his psychotic family. My heart hardened a little toward Jethro for making me go back.
Why? Why did you send me back?
I didn’t know if I’d have the courage to forgive him.
You know why. And you will. Of course, you will.
I couldn’t hate him because I wasn’t selfish. He’d sent me back to protect all of us. Those precious few who’d accepted him and he’d accepted in return. Love was the worst enemy, winding its commitment, ensuring no freedom when it came to clearheaded thinking of adversity.
Jethro loved too much. Felt too much. Suffered too much. And his siblings would be our downfall. Kestrel and Jasmine relied on him—just like I did. The responsibility of settling his family’s wrongs was a terrible burden to bear.
But he’s not alone.
I might’ve been stolen. Jethro’s plans to save me might be ruined. But I was still alive. Still breathing. I wasn’t the naïve girl who’d first arrived at Hawksridge. I was a woman in love with a Hawk. A Weaver who would draw Hawk blood.
It’s not over…
Pain exploded in my spine as Daniel stabbed me with his fist. “Get in the fucking airplane.”
“No!” I threw myself backward, looking frantically at the private hangar. We weren’t at Heathrow, but a small, private airfield called Turweston. “I won’t!”
No strangers I could call for help.
No police or air marshals.
When Daniel had stalked me from my room and shoved me outside, Cut had been waiting. With a victorious smile, he’d stuffed me in the back of a limousine.
With a purring engine, we’d pulled away from Hawksridge, tyres crunching on gravel as we followed the long driveway off the estate.
My eyes had scoured the trees, their silhouettes growing stronger as the sun tinted the sky with pink blushes. Daniel and Cut sat opposite me, toasting each other with a chilled bottle of champagne. However, I hadn’t been alone on my side of the limo—I had a guard.
Marquise, Bonnie’s damn henchman, sat beside me; a mountain of muscle, unyielding and impenetrable.
“Come along.” A strange voice raised my gaze.
A man in a captain’s uniform smiled from the top of the aircraft steps. The private plane’s fuselage glinted in graphite grey. Sparkling diamonds, inlaid in the shape of a windswept ribbon, decorated the tail.
“I don’t want to leave England.”
Daniel laughed behind me. “Like you have a choice.”
“I always have a choice, Buzzard.” I glowered over my shoulder. “Just like this choice of yours will not end well for you.”
If I don’t kill you, Jethro will.
As far as Daniel knew, his slain brother was supposedly rotting in some unmarked grave. Jethro was right. The element of surprise trumped any of Cut and Daniel’s grand delusions.
He snarled, “Watch it, bitch. Everything you say to me here will be paid in full when we’re there.”
“Now, now. No need for threats.” The captain climbed down a rung, holding out his hand. “She’ll get on board. Won’t you, my dear? No need to be afraid of flying. I have an exemplary record.” White hair tufted from either side of his pristine flying cap. In his mid-fifties, he looked fit and toned and impatient to take off.
“I can’t leave.”
I can’t be so far from Jethro.
The captain smiled, waving at his vessel. “Of course, you can. Plus, I bet you’ve never travelled in such style.”
“It’s nothing against your mode of transport. It’s the destination I disagree to. I’m staying here.” I dug my heels into the metal grate, fighting against Daniel’s perpetual pushing. “I don’t have my passport, visa… I can’t travel across borders, so you might as well let me return home.”
Had Hawksridge Hall become my home?
No, don’t be absurd.
But Jethro had. It didn’t matter where we ended up. What we did for work. How our lives panned out. As long as I was alive with Jethro by my side…I would be home.
“Don’t fuss about that.” The captain waved his hand in invitation. “Travel is good for the soul.”
Not my soul.
Travel meant my soul would become untethered from my body, thanks to Cut and the Final Debt.
The sun barely peeked over the horizon, hidden by soupy fog and reluctant night. The world refused to warm, unable to shed the morning frost or dislodge the claws of winter. England didn’t want to say goodbye as much as I did, its reluctant dawn wanting me to stay.
“If you don’t get on the motherfucking plane in two seconds, Weaver, you’ll live to regret it,” Daniel growled.
I glared at the youngest Hawk. “Haven’t you learned by now your threats don’t scare me?”
Forcing myself to stand taller, I hid the quaking in my bones, the quivering in muscles, the rampant terror scurrying in my blood. “I know where you want to take me, and I refuse.”
Daniel pinched the bridge of his nose. A second later, he cuffed me on the back of the head. “Behave!”
I gritted my teeth against the wash of agony.
“Almasi Kipanga is a fucking treat for the likes of you, Weaver. Get on your knees and show some goddamn appreciation. Otherwise, I’ll rip out your fucking tongue and ensure peace for the rest of the trip.”
“Ah, as I said, there’s no need for violence.” The captain took another step, prying my hand off the railing and tugging me upward. “Come along, my dear. Let’s get you inside. And don’t you worry about visas and things. Leave it to me. Airport control won’t be an issue.”
Vertigo cast the world in monochromatic greys as I swayed toward the captain. “But—”
Cut barrelled past Daniel—reaching the end of his patience. Grabbing my arse, he shoved me upward, forcing me like unwilling livestock up the final steps. “I have your passport, Nila. Get on the plane.” His breath skated over the back of my neck. “And don’t think about refusing again. Got it?”
Gripping the fuselage, I looked over my shoulder. “My passport? How did you—”
He waved a black binder in my face. “Everything is in here. You have no more excuses, and I won’t ask again. Get on the fucking plane or I’ll knock you out and you can wake up when we get there.”
