Hunt for Love is LIVE!!!  The Book B!tches, book #3 is HERE!
A haunted town. A murder mystery. The find of the century. 
Kristie Hunt has it all: her dream job, a fiancé she loves, and her b!tches to keep her sane. The ongoing mysteries of Mystic have forced her to push her job to the back burner. When her life flips upside down, Kristie snaps. Thankfully, there’s somebody to help hold her together.
Jessie Burgess has come to Mystic to translate a diary Kristie found. It’s the discovery of a lifetime and will help lend him legitimacy in a family that has become a cliché. Of course, the sexy blond goddess in charge of the exhibit isn’t hard to look at, and he doesn’t mind being the shoulder Kristie leans on while she sorts out the mess with her ex.
They’re just messing around—Kristie’s come off something serious, and Jessie’s not looking for another woman to try to change him—but when Kristie’s life is targeted, he realizes how much he truly cares for her.
Welcome to Mystic, Texas, where the past stays alive in more ways than one.
Here’s an excerpt, for you reading pleasure!
“Comanche regard valor and bravery above all else. When we see something we want, we take it, and we fight like hell to keep it.”
The intensity in his eyes as he spoke those words sent a shiver of anticipation down her spine, leaving a pool of heat in her panties. She crossed her legs and ignored the tingles erupting across her skin as his eyes continued flashing at her.
Kristie could read into his words but decided not to. She chose to believe he was speaking about the woman who’d written the journal and the man who’d taken her. She didn’t want to believe that Jesse had seen her, wanted her, and was going to fight like hell to keep her. That would complicate things. A lot.
Kristie swallowed against the rising lust in her throat. Feeling awkward, she shifted in her seat, touching his thigh. A self-satisfied smile flickered across his features and he lowered his head.
“Well, did you get anything translated last night?” Eager to change the subject, she watched him shuffle some sheets of paper.
Ignoring the brush of his hand against hers, she took the proffered papers as he pulled a pair of glasses from his satchel. He read aloud from the document and paused to transpose it onto his laptop.
Okay, Jesse in glasses? She was doomed. Truly doomed. She desperately tried to come up with a reason not to launch herself at this man and finally managed to remember Shane coming out of the room where he’d fucked his secretary at a funeral.
But the glasses. And the biceps. And the long, dark hair. And the air of power.
Jesse was talking to himself. And it was wholly distracting.
The words were a husky murmur in a language of harsh consonants and excessive grunting. Coming from Jesse, it was pure eroticism washing over her skin and leaving her flushed.
Holy shit. She honestly didn’t see how she was supposed to actually work like this.
Swallowing and hoping her words weren’t about to sound rude, she cleared her throat. “Do you have to read it aloud?”
His eyes twinkled. Did he know his voice reading in Comanche was disintegrating her panties?
“You said it yourself. This woman isn’t Comanche. Our alphabet only has eighteen letters in it, and some of those aren’t in the English alphabet at all. So yes, I do have to read it out loud to hear it and know what I’m saying. Is it a problem? I can work in another room if it would be easier for you to read.”
His eyebrows rose. He was offering to take his laptop and the book and go elsewhere so she could read in his room in peace?
“No. That’s all right.”
Dropping her eyes to the pages, Kristie forced herself to focus on the printed paper in front of her and not his delicious voice. In time, the Comanche murmur was a pleasant backdrop and added a flair of authenticity to the diary.

Excerpt:

Her first thought was of his proposition. She couldn’t imagine what he would want, except sex. She wasn’t immune to his charms in that regard, but Dawn repeated her earlier thoughts to herself. He wouldn’t want just sex. He looked like the sort to dissect things, talk about feelings, put labels on what they were and shit. She wasn’t the sort who did that type of thing. Not anymore.
Her second thought was all about the creature comforts. She hadn’t brushed her teeth, needed a shower, and if she ever wore this fucking body suit again, it would be too soon. Dawn needed clean underwear in the worst way, and her bed screamed at her from where it sat across town.
And she wanted to look at the laptop that had Twitch so fired up.
She sighed, and Jackson’s gaze snapped to hers. “You said you lived by Freed Park?”
She nodded, just now starting her pancakes. The buttery, syrupy batter melted on her tongue, and she let out a small moan. Jackson stared at her with a stark heat in his eyes that had her swallowing hard.
“It’s all underwater over there. Like, a ton of water.”
She ate another bite, shoveling it down because it tasted amazing. She honestly wasn’t hungry but didn’t know when she would get another chance to eat a meal cooked this well. Breakfast might be all the people got. She could be relegated to granola bars, or worse, the rest of the day.
She was smart enough to know not to turn down perfectly good food.
So Dawn ignored him and cleaned her plate, letting out a soft belch when she was finished before pushing the plate away. Jackson picked it up and threw it in the trash in the corner before coming back to sit in the seat next to her. The air thickened between them, and he tugged her chair closer to him, placing her between his knees. He leaned down so they shared the same air. It was totally unnecessary in the largish space of the room that only held the two of them, but she allowed it.
Reveled in it, actually.
She could see his greenish-gray eyes in the light of the morning. At night, they had glittered in the darkness, but she hadn’t been able to tell what color they were.
Dawn was hopelessly lost in them. His sandy-blond hair was cut short on the sides, still standing up on the top of his head, but it had been tamed a bit since last night. And his breath smelled slightly minty.
Son of a bitch had found a toothbrush.
“I think I can use you,” he said, breaking the pregnant silence with words that held a double entendre she couldn’t not laugh at. He blushed, and it was cuter than she cared to admit. He cleared his throat and tried again. “Okay. I do need you, but not the way that came out.”
She sighed, angry at her curiosity for rearing its head. She just knew she was going to get in too deep with this guy. Dawn could feel it in her gut.

I owed Mariana so much. I’d betrayed not only her, but The Clans—my country, my people; my own flesh and blood. With so much lost because of me, when Marianna gave me a chance at redemption I was quick to take it.
I was needed in the Ukraine, and so I went.
But now a vicious woman named Vera is throwing me off my game, and, despite all my preparations and all of my research, I knew nothing of this woman. She was a ghost—a nightmare—appearing from thin air to complicate things. Over time, however, I began to know her for what she was: a thug, a woman lost in her own mind, nothing but a street rat.
How on earth could I be expected to work with such a woman; what happens when you have to barter with someone like that?
I owed Mariana so much, and, though I knew nothing of her, she knew enough about me to make that impossible. She knew that I would sooner die than go back on my word.
All too quickly I’m being taught a valuable lesson by Vera: “love is war.”

Logan never goes back for seconds. Had he known Katie lived in Pamona Gulch when they met, he wouldn’t have touched her. With their mutual acquaintances hooking up, she’s insisting they should be friends. Logan only has one friend, and it certainly isn’t the off-limits woman he’s lusted over for the last two years.
Katie is trying to get over Logan. Two years ago, he taught her exactly what BDSM could offer her, and now she’s stuck pining for a Dom who won’t even speak to her. When she gets involved with the wrong man, Logan is forced to step in, testing their newfound friendship and stretching boundaries.
Tempers flare when authorities capture the arsonist who’s been terrorizing the town. Will this new development snuff out the inferno burning in the background of this second-chance romance? Or does it only add fuel to the fire?

Excerpt:

“I mean, Annette’s pregnant and talking about moving in with Jude. It doesn’t look like they’re breaking up anytime soon. And Joey and Vivian are a serious thing, like, family-style and all that.” Katie waved her hands around vaguely. “And don’t get me started on Zane and Lettie. That proposal was off the charts. I’ve never heard Lettie talk so much. Ever. She’s even talking about flying Zane to Gainesville to meet her Grandma.”
“I get it. Our friends are serious. You want us to be what?” Logan ignored the pain in his belly at the talk about the guys from the firehouse. Babies and marriage and families were things he’d resigned long ago to never have.
Her face softened, and something broke inside him. What would happen if he actually let himself love Katie the way she deserved? It was a thought he’d had before but knew it was fruitless. It would lead to wishes and unfulfilled desires, and he’d been down that road before.
“Different, Logan. I want us to be different. I’ve resolved myself to the fact we’ll never be together again, but you have to admit things have changed since you laid that rule in my lap in Albuquerque. We live in the same town. We have the same friends. We see each other regardless of what you dictate.”
“Nothing’s changed.” The growl rose from Logan before he could stop it even though he knew she was right. Everything had changed, but he couldn’t reconcile that with what was in his mind. He knew things were different, but he couldn’t figure out how to change himself.
She laughed, a loud, boisterous, throaty noise that had Logan looking around the small restaurant. “You are so full of shit, Logan. Everything’s changed, and you can’t deny that. I’m just saying stop acting like I have some STD when we are in a group. I’m not looking for movie night and to invite you to girls’ night and shit. I just don’t see why you have to hate me for breathing.”
Did he do that? Was that really their problem? Logan knew it was him. He was trying to appease her sensibilities or some shit. He didn’t want to do things her way, and their friends were definitely making things hard for both of them. He heard the grunt before he realized it was him.
“I don’t hate you for breathing,” he muttered under his breath at his lap.
He knew he probably acted like he did because that was the asshole he was. Logan had always been the tough guy. Even before he’d discovered his Dom tendencies, he’d always been an asshole, his only friend being Elliot for years and years. Then he had come here and found a small tribe of firefighters. Not all of them, just Captain, Jude, Joey, and later, Zane.
And he was an asshole to them half the time too.
“So what do you want from me?” If she didn’t want movie nights and shit, she had to spell this out. He had no idea what to do with her—with or without their friends.
“Friends, Logan. That’s all I’m asking. Let’s be friends. We don’t have to hang out alone or anything, but when we’re with our friends, we are friends too. That’s all.” Katie’s eyes pled with him, and he realized how important this was to her.
He also realized what he’d done. The innocence and freshness he’d been so attracted to in the beginning was gone. And it was his fault. As she begged him to be her friend, he realized he was the reason the light had faded from her eyes.
That light he’d once loved.
