Risk Is A Four-Letter Word

Risk Is A Four-Letter Word was the first book I wrote for Evernight Publishing. It’s the beginning of my Four-Letter words series:

Chance encounters never really go anywhere, do they? But what if you kept running into the same two people again and again? What if those encounters made you realize just how much you yearned for the kind of love you never thought you would ever experience? Would you take a chance and let it happen?

The Four-Letter Word series is all about taking a chance when a chance encounter convinces my heroines that the universe is trying to tell them something. Don’t worry, you can read them out of order, so feel free to pick and choose at will! Take a chance…

RISK IS A FOUR-LETTER WORD is an All Romance eBooks Bestseller and a Night Owl Reviews Top Pick!

What are people saying about Risk Is A Four-Letter Word?

Night Owl Reviews – 5 stars! – A Night Owl Reviews Top Pick!

“This story is absolutely awesome. It grabbed me from the first scene where Carrie is trying to find her top and kept my interest until the last page where I truly didn’t want it to end. . . Expect to be turned on and needing to be cooled off when reading this story.”

Manic Readers Review  – 4.5 stars!

“The sex is really, really hot, and the men seem to be very empathetic and so nice you have to wonder if they are for real. Carrie takes a chance on them, and we see a HEA for now ending.”

More Than This: Menage and Polyamory Reviews  – 4 stars!

“The relationship didn’t feel forced or rushed. The sex scenes were steamy but always progressed the story. . . All in all this is a great read with a HEA ending.”

Just Erotic Romance Reviews – 4 stars!

“The sex in this book is insanely hot! Frantic and almost crazed, it’s like the three are drugged when they’re together! I love the stolen public kisses and sexual encounters, its’ so fun to read about this triad who don’t even try to fight their animalistic attraction to one another!”

Julie’s Book Review  – 4 stars!

“This was a very entertaining story short, cute and sexy as hell. Adults only, MMF scenes. Loved the chemistry of the 3. They are meant to be. Fate keeps throwing the 3 together and who are they to fight it. Enjoyed the story, recommend the series, if you want a funny, sexy read!”

JBP Reviews – 4 Fairies!

“The beginning scene in this book drew me in and kept me wanting more. What can I say I simply adored this book.”

DARK is book one of my Stronghold Series. It features Greyson Dark, a Sentry, and the girl he can’t resist, Eva Waverley. She’s had a rough life, but she won’t let Greyson’s gruff crankiness bring her down.

The Sentries are territorial, guarded, and relentless in their duty to defend humanity from a secret, deadly menace. In order to remain vigilant, these semi-immortal men must remain aloof and solitary. No one, not even their true mate, will distract them from their mission to protect Earth from annihilation…

The next book in the series, DUSK, is coming soon from Evernight!

DARK is an Amazon Bestseller, BookStrand Bestseller, and an All Romance eBooks Bestseller!

First Kiss Excerpt from DARK:

“Eva.”

She stopped and took a deep breath, staring at the ground. When she looked up, there he was. Dark. Handsome. Totally unapproachable. It suddenly occurred to her that they’d never introduced themselves. She’d spoken with him more than a dozen times now, and she didn’t know his name. He shouldn’t know hers. “How did you know my name?” she asked.

Instead of answering, he strode forward.

She fought not to step back as her breath caught. She struggled to keep her hands still. She shoved down her attraction for him. He’d never given her the slightest indication that he felt the same. She shouldn’t be doing this to herself, anyway. He had to be at least twenty years older than she was, or more. And she was leaving. It’s just a stupid crush, she told herself.

“I have something for you,” he said, voice low and rumbly.

“I came to say goodbye, but you weren’t here,” she forced out past her frantically beating heart. He’d come close enough for her to feel the warmth radiating off his body. He smelled fresh and musky, like a pine forest just after a hard rain.

“I know.” He touched her cheek lightly, then pulled something out of his pocket.

Eva looked down. His ring lay nestled in his palm with a silver chain strung through it.

“Here.” He undid the clasp, then slid the chain around her neck. “Don’t ever take this off.”

Eva licked her lips, twisting her hands together so they wouldn’t tremble and betray her nerves. “What are you doing?”

“This will keep you safe.”

The chain was long enough to slide down her shirt between her breasts. It tickled.

“I don’t understand,” she said thickly. He’d left his fingers against her neck. She couldn’t breathe with him this close. He felt like a storm: dark and overwhelming. She wanted him, badly, not matter how much he might hurt her.

“Don’t take it off,” he repeated, then he cupped her cheeks with both hands, tilting her face up.

Whoa, she thought, when she finally deciphered the complicated look on his face. He was attracted to her. Shy, overweight, screwed-up Eva. How was this possible? As she tried to understand this miracle, he moved in and lightly touched his lips to hers.

Eva held her breath for a split-second, then her hands drifted up to his biceps and she held on for dear life. He deepened the kiss, tongue sliding inside her mouth. Eva shuddered. He tasted like mint. He felt like danger. He gathered her close and kissed her harder, teeth nicking the outside of her lips. Eva didn’t care. When he finally lifted his head, she thought maybe she was dreaming, but the taste of blood in her mouth told her otherwise.

“Stay safe,” he murmured, then backed away.

Eva touched her lips. “Wait!”

He paused, dark eyes glittering in the deepening twilight.

“I don’t even know your name,” she whispered.

He looked at her, face harsh. “My name is Greyson.” He touched his finger to the outside corner of his eye, then nodded and backed away.

As before, he abruptly disappeared into the forest before she could say another word.

Question: If you were Eva, why would you let Greyson kiss you in the woods when he’s been so gruff with you?

Nathaniel doesn’t want to go Castle Archangel: he’s half-human and can’t fly like the rest of his clan. Even worse, he likes guys and he’s not exactly white. That makes him an interspecies outcast, but he wants to please his dad. Once there, he meets Zeke, the angels’ sexy weapons master. Sadly, Zeke is straight and Nathaniel doesn’t hit on men he can’t have.

When Zeke meets Nathaniel, his gut tells him he’s met his mate, but he’s never been attracted to a guy before. Despite Nathaniel’s wariness and his own fear, Zeke can’t help claiming him when instinct takes over.

Unfortunately, Nathaniel isn’t ready to bond, not even when their connection sparks dormant angelic powers. However, when Zeke flies into danger, Nathaniel follows. Demons stalk their people and it will take every angel who can wield a blade to fight the evil that lurks in unexpected places.
