The Collective is BACK

Rebels!

Over the last year I’ve received a ton of emails, Facebook messages, and Goodreads DM’s asking me when Mac was going to get his HEA. Well the long wait is almost over!

Trust – Mac and Laura’s story will release October 18th. YIPPYYY!!! As a matter of fact the entire season 2 of The Collective will release the same day. Double Yippy!

Okay, so some of you may be wondering what is The Collective and why you should be so excited about it.

Picture this, an epic crossover series that is fashioned like a TV series. Each book in the season is a standalone and has its own storyline and HEA however there is a bigger overarching story in play.  This season no one is safe as corrupt politicians and dirty cops rule the street. A child’s death puts targets on the backs of those in law enforcement and sets two cities ablaze with riots. When the police chief’s daughter is kidnapped amid the chaos, will the Collective solve the case and rescue her in time?

Awesome, right? So as you’re reading along, you’ll learn a little more about the politicians, dirty cops, and the mafia players who have literally plunged San Francisco  into chaos.

I have a million reasons to keep running—and one to stay.
I’m a dead woman walking; there’s a target on my back and a million-dollar price tag on my head. I shouldn’t have fallen in love, not if I wanted to stay alive. I’m a liar, a con, I’ve changed my name so many times I can barely remember who I am.
They’ve found me and I have to leave. I keep telling myself it’s better this way. He’s too good for me. The detective and the mafia princess, can you image?

She ran like a thief in the night taking my heart with her. The city I’ve sworn to protect is in chaos; buildings are burning and there are riots in the streets. Innocent people are being killed and all I can think about is her.
I’ve uncovered her secrets. Now all I have to do is find her and convince her I can keep her safe.
Easier said than done—the woman has trust issues.

Unbroken 1 & 2 republished

Happy Tuesday!

With a new season of The Collective releasing October 18th I’ve given Unbroken part 1 & 2 a facelift and made it available on all major retailers. If you’ve already read these two books there is no need to purchase them again.

Did you know there is exclusive bonus chapters on my website?  No cheating – LOL! You have to read Unbroken Part one first. 🙂

If you’ve never read Reid and Ava’s story now is the perfect time!

unbroken

Five years after my husband’s brutal murder, I am still trying to piece my life back together. A series of disastrous events sends, not only my life but my son’s life into peril. With everything spiraling out of control, and our safety on the line, I have no choice but to ask my longtime friend, Reid for help. I realize my mistake too late. Reid is all in, and is taking over my life completely. He looks at me like a woman, not a widow or a mother. He makes we wish for things I know I shouldn’t have. Just when he opens my eyes to the world around me, and I see the man that has been standing right in front of me all these years – it’s too late. One kiss is all I am allowed before my life takes another painful twist and all thoughts of happiness are torn from my reach.

Available on all major retailers

 

unbroken part two

I gave Ava time.

Time to mourn.

Time to heal from the loss of her husband.

There was no rush. I was going to ease her into my life. But when a madman kidnaps her, all bets are off. She is mine. I will protect her at all costs; even if it means I have to dance with the devil himself.

With Ava safely back in my arms we have one more obstacle to overcome. Simple Simon the sadist serial killer sticks again—this time it’s personal. Someone from my past; a woman with a secret so big my world shakes.

I can’t lose Ava; I won’t survive this mess without her.

Available for preorder – Releases October 2, 2018

Recovering Ivy

Zane and Ivy’s story is LIVE!

mybook.to/recoveringIvy

RecoveringIvy_RileyEdwards

What are readers saying? Glad you asked. LOL Did you know that a recent poll showed that 85% of readers buy books based on recommendation alone? That means without even reading the blurb. Social proof, better know as word of mouth is the best way to help support your favorite authors. I love reading my early reviews!

“Zane doesn’t do repeats. So why is he biting heads off because he woke up to an empty bed? Damn, he didn’t even know her last name. An unexpected meeting has both he and Ivy pretending this is their first introduction. A strategic phone call and the client/perp is called away leaving Ivy in the hands of Zane. He has questions. He needs answers. Then he needs her, again. She has a past life she doesn’t want to discuss. She has a plan for revenge. Nothing will get in her way. When revenge and justice cross paths can Zane and Ivy work together? He plans to play with her and more. She just doesn’t know it yet. And when she finds out….? This is the first book I’ve read in the series and it does stand alone. However, I’d happily read the previous three books and any after this one. Plenty of steam, feelings change those who don’t feel worthy of finding love. The team will give all for any one of them besides driving Zane to distraction with their razzing that he has been caught by a woman who takes no prisoners or anything else from a man she doesn’t want. They all care about the team/family and their love is strong and loyal. This has my strong recommendation. Read for Words Turn Me On ”

“I must say what a treat reading Ivy and Zane’s story. It was like an action-packed movie unfolding inside my head with drool-worthy hotties, both man and women included. There is as much activity in the field as there is in bed, but all this is just icing on the cake. What I loved about Recovering Ivy is that the author tackles a more serious issue re drug addiction and how it affects family members. The author’s in-depth characterization of Ivy is brilliant and Zane’s emotional growth is what makes this a great tale, two broken people healing each other and making them whole.

“I will not quit us, and I won’t let you run away from it either. I’ll fight for us; I’ll fight when you can’t. I’ll make sure when we cross the finish line you are stronger than you have ever been.”

It’s a fast-paced romance spiked with attitude and passion, the perfect book to tuck in on a lazy weekend. I really enjoyed Zane and Ivy’s story and I bet you will too!

 

I received a free copy of this book however all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
This is hands down the best book I have read this year. I had never read any of Riley’s books before this, but having finished this, and loved it, I have gone back to the beginning of the series (not that it makes any difference to this book as all background is explained perfectly). From the get go the storyline grabs you and doesn’t let go, I’d normally say until the last page, but as there is the tempting teaser to the next book, I can’t even say that! It has romance, suspense, murder, searing red hot sex scenes and sexy alpha males (described so well I was salivating!). Absolutely not one thing I can grumble or say I’m disappointed about, well besides the wait I’ve now got til the next one…………………………….

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

RECOVERING IVY

Recovering Ivy is book 4 in the RED TEAM series and the third book I’ve written in Susan Stoker’s Special Forces: Operation Alpha universe.  I am so excited to finally give you Zane “Viper” Lewis’ story. AND you’ll see Susan Stoker’s characters from her SEAL of Protection Series.

Blurb:
We met in a bar.
The sex was phenomenal.
Then I walked away.
That’s where our story should’ve ended.
But he found me. Now he knows my real name, my secrets, and all the details of my sordid past.
I’m out for revenge and no one will stop me; not even the pragmatic Zane Lewis. If he thinks he can silence me with the promise of more mind-bending sex, he’s wrong.

Ivy Matthews is the most frustrating female I’ve ever known. I’ve broken terrorists faster than I can pull information from her sweet lips.
The only time she’s pliant is when she’s under me, or when my mouth is exploring her sexy curves, and then the most exquisite filthy words and breathy moans fill my ears.
If she thinks she can walk away from me, she’s wrong.
I’ve found the one–my perfect match–my equal.

Come hell or high-water Ivy is mine.

WARNING: SUPER-HOT STEAMY ROMANCE.

“Nothing can come of this between us; you know that, right? I really enjoyed spending time with you tonight. You’re a great guy, and I believe you think you mean all those nice things you said to me. But let’s face it, I’m not marriage material. I’m filler. That’s all I can be. I thought I was okay being that for you. But I was wrong. There’s no way I can get to know you and not develop feelings. I think it’s best if we walk away now before my heart gets broken.”

There.
I’d said it.
I let him off the hook, and when I opened my eyes I figured I see some sort of relief on his face. After all, I was being practical; he’d want a family one day, I couldn’t give that to anyone. However, I didn’t see relief. I saw so much anger I recoiled and scooted as far away from him as I could in the small space the couch would allow.

“The fuck did you just say?” he growled.

“Umm… which part?”

“The filler part,” he sneered.

Oh boy, he was mad.

“You know the women you date when you’re done sleeping around but not ready to settle down and get married. The fillers.” I heard the words coming out of my mouth, and I watched as his eyes narrowed into two small slits, but I couldn’t stop. “The woman you use to try to cut your teeth on, see if you’re ready for a real relationship.”

“I’ve heard some fucked up shit in my life. I’ve seen even more. I’ve seen the viciousness one person can inflict on another. But never have I witnessed someone be so cruel to themselves. Beyond that, you think so little of me that not only do you think I would use you, but you think I would use other women to cut my teeth. That is jacked. Everything you just said is so fucked up I don’t know where to begin to straighten your shit out. You. Are. Not. Filler. Not to me, not to any other man. I still don’t understand what the hell that means. Your head is so twisted you’ve imagined some bullshit universe where that makes sense. It doesn’t. It’s fucked, Meadow!”

All the Pretty Girls

All the Pretty Girls is the first book in The Next Generation spin off series.  I am so excited to start these books. I had no intention to write this series but when I started getting emails asking about the 707 ending and if I had any plans to write a story for Jason Walker, Emily and Jasper’s son the wheels started turning. Stories started formulating and most importantly characters started talking to me.  I tried to start with Jason since I’d received the most emails about him, but Nicolas Clark’s story demanded to be told first.

My biggest obstacle was the time jump. I had to age all of the children. If you’ve read Clark and Reagan’s book, Freedom, you know in the epilogue I started the process. We move from Nick’s high school graduation, college graduation, and finally Nick finishing the FBI academy.

As with any book, when I started writing Nick’s story I didn’t know where he would take me. By the time I was 5,000 words into the book I couldn’t stop. I fell in love with Meadow, the shy unassuming heroine. Nick was the man she needed to make her see past both the emotional and physical scars she’d received from a horrific, life changing, attack. Nick doesn’t see the same “disgusting mark” across her face, all he sees is beauty.

They are perfect for eachother!

I can’t wait for you all to start this new journey with me. Nick and Meadow -All the Pretty girls releases May 30, 2018

He was my first love…

I wanted him to follow his dreams. I wanted him to escape the life he hated. I thought I was doing the right thing by not telling him how I truly felt. Until it was too late, and my silence turned into my biggest regret. Twelve years ago, Shane Owings died, taking my heart with him. I was left devastated and broken hearted. Time didn’t heal, as the years went on I only missed him more. She was my best friend… the only woman I ever loved.
When I ran off to join the Army, I left behind everything I had ever loved. I thought I was doing the right thing, but my good intentions quickly turned into my biggest regret. Every year on the anniversary of Shane’s death I watched as Lillian Nelson visited Shane’s grave and spilled her secrets to a dead man. Each year I hoped she wouldn’t be back, that her heart would finally heal and she would move on. But year after year she was back. So many times I wanted to reach out and comfort the beautiful woman, but I knew she would never forgive me. It was my fault Shane was dead. 
Until… A terrorist shows up looking for revenge.

I had to come out of the shadows and protect the one woman I had no business falling in love with.

FREEING JASPER
The moment Jasper heard Emily Jenkins’ sultry voice he was transfixed. 
An instant and heated reaction that wound its way through his soul and warmed his skin. The inexplicable connection was broken as fast as it began. Emily has a son. Jasper doesn’t “do” kids. 
When her life spirals out of control, will Jasper be able to let go of his tragic past and save Emily and her son? Or has the Special Forces Soldier found his weakness – a history he cannot let go of?
Emily Jenkins lost her husband on the battlefield and was left to pick up the pieces of her broken heart while finding a way to raise her son alone.
Jasper Walker is known for being the playboy of his team. Professionally, he is a tier one assassin – a trained killer. Personally, he blows through women giving them no more than a week in his bed as he privately struggles to move on from the woman that is forever lost to him. 

When their lives collide, Jasper finds out he’s not the only one with secrets. There is more to the black-haired beauty Emily than a widowed single mother. 

 

FINALLY FREE – LEVI
http://geni.us/794U5q2

Blake Porter was one of the lucky ones. 

She’d met the man she was going to marry while she was in high school. She thought she was living a fairytale; the nerdy wannabe journalist dating the gorgeous star quarterback. One wrong move proved to irrevocably alter the course of their lives.
Betrayed by the girl he loved, Levi McCoy left for the Army and never looked back. Blake’s deception pierced his soul and shattered his heart. He used the pain to his advantage and became cold and calculating – the perfect Black Ops soldier. 
Over a decade later, the 707 has been called in to rescue a reporter embedded in a deadly terrorist cell, and Levi’s shocked to learn it’s the one woman who’d once owned his heart. But Blake is no longer the naive teenager she’d once pretended to be. She’s something far more dangerous.
With bombs exploding, blood being spilled, and the terrorists closing in, they both battle the memories of their beautiful beginnings and shared history. Levi and Blake face off in a showdown of wills. In one corner, Levi is determined not to fall for the woman he’s never stopped loving. In the other, Blake tries to hold on to her self-respect and not beg Levi to hear the truth. 
When the lies and deception are revealed will they survive with their hearts and lives intact?

 

 

 
FREEDOM – CLARK
She’s the game changer he wishes he’d never met. 
Nolan Clark is the last man standing. While he is happy his teammates have found love, he’s even happier to be single. But fate is a funny thing. When a one-night stand turns into a friends with benefits agreement, he starts to question why he’s holding the beautiful Reagan at arm’s length.
He knows she’s dangerous and should end their arrangement but the sex is too good and she is too… much. 
He’s the regret of a lifetime! 

Nolan Clark should’ve been off-limits. He’s my closest friend’s teammate and a man that I’m not prepared for. I lied and told him I understood he’d never offer me a white picket fence and jumped straight into bed when he offered me the only thing he could sex. 

With every smile, every touch, and every sizzling kiss I fall deeper in love. When the day comes for me to move five-hundred miles away to start a new job, he doesn’t stop me. Days pass, then weeks, and Nolan Clark does exactly what he said he was going to do – loses my number. 
With Reagan gone to start her new life in Florida, Clark is left in Georgia at war with his heart. The timing couldn’t be worse. The past he thought he’d let go of, the ex-wife he’d thought he forgave crashes into his life brings with her an eleven-year-old boy he never knew existed. 
When Reagan stumbles onto some information she shouldn’t, and her life is threatened, will Clark, and the 707 get there in time to save her? Or will she die alone and broken-hearted in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico?
