Chasing Honor is LIVE

“Romantic Suspense done right. Another 5-STAR read from Riley Edwards!” Author Ellie Masters

CHASING_HONOR_GOLD  Chasing Honor

The Next Generation book 2

Ethan Lenox became a single father at sixteen when his girlfriend signed over custody of their newborn daughter and left to chase her dreams. Eight years later he’s a police officer, fiercely protective of the little girl and dedicated to his work. He’s never had time for dating and won’t allow any woman to betray his trust or abandon him again. But the intriguing woman who shows up to rent the room he’s offering has him rethinking his ideas.

Photographer Honor Sullivan is on the run. Her powerful, ruthless stepfather would do anything to advance his political career, including forcing Honor into an arranged, loveless marriage. Her sexy new landlord and his adorable daughter offer just the kind of refuge she needs, a home full of love and honesty, so different from what she’s endured the last few years. But Honor is unwittingly carrying a secret, one that could endanger anyone around her. A secret that could get her killed.

As the attraction deepens between Ethan and Honor, events from the past are closing in on them. Will Ethan once again lose a woman he’s come to care about, or is he willing to risk his heart to chase a new dream of love?

“Chasing Honor kept my interest from the first page to the last. I absolutely loved Ethan and his family.” Book Addiction

Don’t forget to check out book 1 – Saving Meadow – if you haven’t read Meadow and Nick’s story. SAVING_MEADOW

Meadow Holiday was off-limits. 

Completely. Totally. Out of bounds.
A witness.
A victim.
And achingly beautiful.
With a shiny new badge clipped to my belt, I thought I could save the world or at least protect those I loved.
A sadistic serial killer proved me wrong.
The only way to keep Meadow safe was to break the rules, keep her close,

and claim her as my own. Only she proved to be harder to catch than the lunatic running around on a murder spree.

I had no business falling in love in the middle of an investigation. But she’s the one, I feel it deep in bones.

Special Agent Nick Clark gave me hope. 
He was so far out of my league it was laughable.
Untouchable.

So damn good looking it hurt to look at him.
He was everything I’d dreamed of having, but knew I’d never have.
His charm was irresistible, and the first time he kissed me I stupidly fell in love.
He promised me a world I thought was long ago stolen from me.
A fairytale where a sexy FBI agent saves the scared and scarred girl.
Just when Nick breaks down the fortress I’d built to protect myself and pushes through my doubts – it’s too late.
The villain in our story has come for me.
I knew better than to believe in happily ever afters.

TRUST

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
Are you ready to find out what all the buzz is about?.
Easier said than done—the woman has trust issues.

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.

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.

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
