The Donnellys Series:  

Jaded Heart 
(The Donnellys, #4)

Even jaded hearts can be tempted into trying again.

When Angela Donnelly heads to Arizona for a family event, she meets older and hotter-than-hell, Garrett James.

Garrett runs a small concert venue on the outskirts of Phoenix…and that’s about as close as he wants to come to the music biz. His hey-day in the late 90s, playing bass and singing with his band, Copper Seven, is long gone. Far from the limelight and willingly single, the only woman Garrett wants or needs in his life is his daughter.

That is until he meets the way too young for him, Angie. Long dark hair and long legs have always been his downfall and Garrett can’t keep his eyes, or his hands off of her.

Angie might be young, but she’s no fool. She knows a good thing when she’s found one—Garrett is a once-in-a-lifetime good thing for her.

But Garrett can’t seem to convince Angie that he’s not her once in a lifetime anything. As far as he’s concerned, he’s absolutely the wrong man for her with nothing to offer someone as promising as Angie.

Angie recognizes that Garrett has his heart fully guarded. But when he gives her everything she wants, except his heart, she knows this will be the fight of her life.

And Angie won’t back down. Or give up.

Warning: This book contains a very broken hero and a very determined heroine. An age gap, and a lot of angst.

On a more serious note, here’s the trigger warning: Jaded Heart goes into detail about what alcoholism and drug addiction can do to a person. It also touches on a past death as a result of an overdose and the effect that has on family members.

Shattered Heart 
(The Donnellys, #3)

A crush is just a fantasy. The real thing packs some serious heat.

When Cynthia Donnelly lays eyes on her high school crush at her brother's wedding rehearsal, she regrets her self-imposed one-year moratorium on dating. If possible, he's even hotter now than when they were teens.

Back in school, Shane made a point to ignore his best friend's cute, sassy little sister. Now that she's grown into an incredibly sexy woman full of Irish spunk, resisting her is out of the question. Besides, in his book all "hands off" rules have expired.

One sizzling night together should have been enough. Instead the heat rises, tempting Cyn to take a chance on a long-distance relationship and making Shane consider pulling up stakes and moving back to LA.

Cyn's recently dumped ex, however, has other ideas. His quest to get her back escalates into violence, shattering Cyn's faith in herself and in anyone of the male persuasion - and leaving Shane with his work cut out for him to repair the damage or lose his shot at a once-in-a-lifetime love.

Warning: This book contains a physical assault. Buckle up for a bumpy emotional journey with the characters as they fall apart and then slowly find their way to healing and to each other. You might get angry or tearful along the way, you may even get frustrated, but as with any good love story, it'll be worth it in the end.

Defensive Heart 
(The Donnellys, #2)


Uptown girl, tattooed bad boy. Think you know which one is wild? You’d be wrong.

Greenwich Village is home to successful artist Jimmy Donnelly, and the world is his playground. A broken heart in college left him with zero interest in being tied down. But when he meets a sexy, quick-witted Manhattan attorney, he reconsiders his bad boy ways.

Sonja Martin’s life is filled with work, an ex-husband who refuses to stay gone, and a teenage daughter who won’t follow the rules. Jimmy, with his myriad of tattoos and piercings, looks more like one of her clients than a potential lover. But when every argument between them feels more like foreplay, she can’t seem to stay out of his bed.

The heat burns through whatever defenses Sonja thought she had. And Jimmy finds his every fantasy fulfilled—and exceeded—by a woman whose fire burns as bright as her fiercely guarded vulnerability. But his case for breaking her out of her self-imposed mold might just be dismissed. And he’ll lose the best thing he’s ever found.

Warning: This book might piss you off. But if I’ve done my job, while you’re busy being pissed off, you’ll also fall in love with the hero and the heroine. May contain: A pompous, misogynistic ex-husband. A rebellious teenager. A ton of sex. Adventurous sex. Make-up sex. Desperate-OMG-GET-YOUR-CLOTHES-OFF sex… Did I mention there’s a lot of sex? 

Unworthy Heart 
(The Donnellys, #1)

Opposites not only attract, sometimes they spontaneously combust.

Ryan Donnelly’s past relationship may have failed, but he’s determined to make single fatherhood and his career a resounding success. He’s got his eye on the top of the ladder at an L.A. marketing firm when his gaze snags on co-worker Maiya Rossini.
She’s a feisty, witty, tattooed redhead who’s nowhere near his type, but she pushes every one of his hot buttons.

Maiya clawed her way out of her dysfunctional, trailer-park childhood to earn a college degree and establish a promising career. Her future dreams are big, bright and packed with full-throttle fun, but when it comes to matters of the heart and men—especially stuffy corporate types like Ryan—her past slams on the emotional brakes.

In the office and in the bedroom, Maiya and Ryan rub each other in all the right ways. Though Maiya is everything Ryan didn’t know he wanted, he’s got his work cut out for him convincing her she’s worthy of love—or the bright light she’s brought to his life could slip through his fingers.

Warning: Contains a lot of graphic, yummy sex. To those prone to lock their bedroom doors, fair warning. In this book, there are no doors, only windows. With no curtains. For those who aren’t afraid to keep their eyes wide open: Enjoy the show!

Yes, Darling

Of course, sweetheart.

This weekend is Janie and Tom Johnson’s chance to finally celebrate their one-year wedding anniversary.

And Janie’s determined to make it perfect.

Even though it’s off-season, the Dreams and Mysteries B&B is the picture of perfection—until Janie can’t seem to shake the nagging, uneasy feelings plaguing her. Dark shadows, creepy nightmares, and a constant chill in her bones put a damper on the weekend in a big way.

Her darling husband does what he can to calm her fears, but in the end, it’s Janie who finally pulls herself together.

And, with a little help, finishes off their weekend with a bang Tom wasn’t prepared for.

Warning: This book is a very steamy horror—complete with scary, horror type things. And that thing couples do together naked!

Stripped Bounty

Protecting her isn’t an option. It’s a requirement.

Badger finally got Rosie in his bed, but in order to keep her there, he has to figure out how to save her life.

After her drug-running husband gets himself killed, Rosie Santini figures Phoenix is a fine place to get a fresh start. Deuce’s strip club isn’t too fresh, but the money’s easy. As she works the pole, the only gaze she can’t ignore belongs to the club’s head bouncer, Badger Baxter. But Rosie’s seen her fair share of tall, dark, and dangerous, and no way is she heading down that road. Not even for a hot hunk of muscle like Badger.

When he’s not bounty hunting, Badger runs security at Deuce’s. Rosie should be just another piece of fresh meat in the club’s stable of pole jockeys, but all her sexy parts add up to a ride Badger would like to test drive. Trouble is, Badger likes his women submissive, but not broken. She’s definitely got baggage he wants no part of. But when her husband’s killer shows up looking for stolen cash, she fits naturally under his protection—and it isn’t long before she’s hooked deep into his heart.

So deep, losing her now would make him bleed in more ways than one.

Warning: This book contains violent situations due to physical altercations and gunfire. Be on the look out for D/s sexual play, which may cause drooling and might have you reaching for the nearest man or battery operated boyfriend.

Play Date

Fun comes in all sorts of species...

Ivy Bailey's pub, the Dionysus Vine, is a place where all kinds of paranormal species are welcome to long as the humans also drinking there aren't aware of their presence. When her old friend, Knox Barrett, who also happens to be a werewolf, rolls into Ivy's pub for a few drinks, she's more than happy to oblige.

The one thing Ivy doesn't tolerate in her bar is trouble. And trouble is exactly what just walked in the front door. With her old friend covering her back, dealing with the oddly matching couple causing a malevolent disturbance in the pub might just be the best night Knox and Ivy have had in a long time.

Product Warning: THIS IS NOT A ROMANCE - It's an Urban Fantasty short story. --This story contains a lot of cursing, definitely violence and two pretty gnarly deaths. Just go with it, it's paranormal. But also, there's no sex. I repeat, there is NO SEX.
--I know that's hard to believe coming from me (Dorothy) but it's true! Enjoy!
