The universe must really hate me.
Rhys Astor, the guy with a deadly smirk and devil-may-care attitude, is the sole witness to one of the most embarrassing moments of my life. But even worse, now he’s suddenly intrigued by me, which is confusing because until now, he couldn’t be bothered to remember my name.
Dorothy, Donatella, Danielle…no, it’s Delilah, you unhinged prat.
I don’t want his attention. If I had my way, we’d go on avoiding each other for the rest of our lives, but again, the universe is conspiring against me. Rhys is the captain of the fencing team, and I’m the new manager. That means we’re stuck together everyday for practice, tournaments, and long, long bus rides to away matches.
Our shared bus rides lead to heated bickering.
That bickering leads to hate-kissing…and not-so-hate kissing.
And somehow, those few stolen kisses lead to sexy tutoring sessions, where Rhys is an extremely enthusiastic student.
He shows me with every single touch, kiss, and whispered word how much he appreciates my rounded curves. And in return, I show him what it means to truly be cared for.
But I have a feeling Rhys is hiding something. That his motives might not be what they seem.
I’ve never wanted to be wrong about anything more than I do about these nagging suspicions.
Because if I’m right, then there’s nothing but heartbreak waiting for me.
(These Two Wrongs is an enemies to lovers, standalone romance. There is no OW drama, no cheating, and a guaranteed HEA!)

Those were the words that Coreline King learned to live by when it came to dealing with Tide ‘Rook’ Crow, member of the Battle Crows MC, general surgeon, and all-around jerk who lived to make her life a living hell.
It all started in high school when he stopped seeing her as a random girl and started to see her as his rival.
Together, they became ‘frenemies.’ I.e.—a person with whom one is friendly, despite a fundamental dislike or rivalry.
At least, it started out like that.
Everyone always says there’s a fine line between love and hate. And at first, Tide and Coreline don’t realize how very true that is.
Not until Tide gets hurt defending Coreline’s honor, and Coreline has to fix him because she feels like she owes him.
But one night of bad choices leads to a very big ‘oops’ that will either haunt them for the next eighteen years or bring them together as tight as they ever could be.

Get the hell out of this shit town and find my missing father.
Until then, comfortably invisible is how I preferred to spend my time.
That was, until I turned the corner, smacking into the chest of a jade-eyed stranger.
He makes me question my sanity.
The secrets he’s keeping make me question my safety.
The way he looks at me makes me question everything.
One thing is for sure, Dominic Pope will change my life.
Good or bad…
I’m just not sure which yet.
Revenge is a promise you make to yourself;
A pact to repay someone who has wronged you.
My sole focus for the past year has been to infiltrate and extinguish.
Get close, gain the Devil’s trust, then knock him off his shiny pedestal.
I didn’t plan on her, though.
My Night Sky.
The girl with a sharp tongue, flickering stars in her eyes, and cinnamon-brown hair.
I didn’t prepare for my need for her outweighing my plan.
Straying from the blueprints of my revenge is getting easier and easier,
but is it possible to keep her safe and call her mine?
Because one thing is for sure:
I’m not letting her go.
Everyone knows to stay away from the heirs of Olympus Bay. They rule the city through savagery and blood like the heartless assholes they are.
A streak of bad luck puts me on the path of the most ruthless of them all. Hades. The black sheep of the family, his reputation for debauchery and violence precedes him. No wonder he’s the king of Olympus U.
He wants me to pay for a mistake I didn’t intend to make, and I fear refusing him will only end in tragedy. But there are worse fates than being the target of a savage god.
When another ruthless player enters the arena and demands more than I can give, I find myself stuck in the middle of a family war, and Hades emerges as my savior. And my captor.
The longer I stay by his side, the more I realize the man is not what he seems. He’s dark and brutal, but he also possesses a tenderness I didn’t think was possible. That’s his most dangerous weapon. If I’m not careful, I might never want to leave his prison.
Only I can’t indulge in my desires. My family needs me, and if I surrender to Hades completely, I may never see my loved ones again.
*This is a contemporary retelling of Hades & Persephone’s story.
One word can hold tremendous power. One word can change everything.
I never imagined it would come to this. That I would fall for Micah Reed.
That I would open my heart once more. And get it crushed. Again.
The moment I let him in, the second our relationship evolved, fate threw an epic curve ball.
One we can’t ignore. One I don’t know I can endure.
But call me a glutton for punishment.
One word stole my breath. One word had my knees ready to buckle.
I refuse to believe anything without proof. Refuse to let someone ruin my life.
Call me a d-bag, I don’t care. Deep down, I know the truth.
Now, if only Peyton would believe it, too.
My relationship with Peyton is headed in the right direction. Her fire is no longer fueled by hate.
Now, I know the taste of her lips. The softness of her skin. The warmth of her touch.
And no one will steal her from me. No one.
I fell for Micah Reed.
I fell for Peyton Alexander.
Was it all for nothing?
Will she abandon me when I need her most?
