The Naughty Never Die (The Seduction Series) by L.L. Kellogg and Laurie Kellogg

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
Winner of Ignite the Flame and the Touch of Magic contests and a Daphne du Maurier finalist

If only the good die young, then New Jersey’s virtuous First Lady should be a cinch to kill.
Unless….deep down she’s really quite naughty.

The Beauty–a chronic people pleaser who’s had enough of her goody-two-shoes life

Since her mother’s untimely death, crusader Josephine Callahan has served as New Jersey’s First Lady. Acting as her father’s official hostess in the governor’s mansion is tantamount to living in a fishbowl, which makes S-E-X extremely difficult. On the brink of a nervous breakdown, frustrated Josie loses her usual good sense along with her cool and lets her assemblyman boyfriend sweet-talk her into an impromptu romantic getaway–something she would never consider if she had a clue someone is trying to kill her.

The Beast–an incurable bad boy who refuses to admit beneath his scars lurks a hero.

A deliberately twisted message, via the governor’s spiteful assistant, misleads ex Special Forces officer, DJ Ryder, as to the true objective of his freelance assignment. He’s told to, not only track down the governor’s classy daughter and hold her in protective custody, but to also teach her a lesson by letting her believe she’s been kidnapped.

When Josie discovers the scarred, but still sexy, badass has played her for a fool, she retaliates by feigning a raging case of Stockholm syndrome, teasing the brute until all he can think of is the ‘hold her’ part of his orders. How can Ryder concentrate on keeping Josie safe when he’s busy avoiding the danger she poses to his heart?

NOTE: This book has an extra high sensuality level and is not for those seeking a ‘sweet’ romance.

Dr. Samantha Moore is one of the youngest and most acclaimed researchers in the world. Her specialty is blood and she has been recruited by the largest pharmaceutical company in Scotland.

Dr. Kade Gunnach is taking a chance hiring an outsider, but he’s desperate to find out how to help his sister. He believes the key lies in her blood, but so far, no one has found the answers.

They’re drawn together by a force neither is prepared for, but Kade is holding something back. Something that could scare her away.

When Samantha learns his secret, will she run?

Will Kade be able to live with the answers he’s been desperately searching for?

Survival (Book 1 of The Guardians of Vesturon Series) by A.M. Hargrove

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
“Oh how did I like this book, let me count the ways. Well, first off it had a sci-fi element, which is always a plus in my book. But Rayn and his brothers, *swoon-worthy*. Then of course, Maddie had me in tears with her antics towards the end of the book. I kept dying laughing.”
Terri Thomas, Goodreads

“There are some sad parts where I had to find my Kleenex and wipe my tears and then there were parts that I laughed out loud. I like when an author can make you feel actual emotions.”
Tana Troniak, Goodreads

“Hargrove does an excellent job weaving such a masterful mystery while giving us a little taste of romance with just enough laughs out loud and heart wrenching moments to keep the pages turning.” Lissa Smith, Goodreads

“It’s not every author who can make the reader experience a story with her senses as well as mentally and emotionally, but A. M. Hargrove does! This author deserves a very wide audience.” Mallory Anne-Marie Forbes

“I really enjoyed being swept away by this story and look forward to more of the same in Resurrection. A must read. “
Laura Thomas, Goodreads

Survival (Book 1 of the Guardians of Vesturon)

“Maybe I was caught between the two worlds. I was having serious trouble distinguishing fantasy from reality.”

While on a backpacking trip in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, nineteen-year-old Maddie Pearce finds her world has been thrown into a vortex and is madly spinning toward the impossible. Abducted by a mad psychopath, Maddie narrowly escapes with her life. But that is only the beginning. Her mysterious rescuer introduces her to a world that Maddie has difficulty accepting as reality. Will this strikingly gorgeous stranger be the key to her future or will she return to her mundane world, scarred from her experience? Follow Maddie as she is forced to make difficult decisions that carry her to mysterious places.

Excerpt…

Then, unexpectedly, three brightly glowing melon-sized balls of light came soaring across the dark sky. When they were a few feet away from me, they elongated into long thin slivers. Moments later, the slivers expanded and then took form into three indistinct shapes.

I kept blinking my eyes, not trusting what I was seeing. I was positive I was hallucinating. This must be what happens right before you die.

Then, the indistinct shapes morphed into three men—three very tall, powerfully built men. They were identical in that they were all dressed alike—wearing black hooded cloaks that fell to their ankles. The hoods hid their faces, but I had the strangest feeling they were there to help me.

Resurrection, Book 2 of the Guardians of Vesturon

About the Author:
One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, A. M. Hargrove, realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn’t do something soon, it would quickly be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life. So, she rolled down the passenger window of her fabulous (not) company car and tossed out her leather briefcase. Luckily, the pedestrian in the direct line of fire was a dodgeball pro and had über quick reflexes enabling him to avoid getting bashed in the head. Feeling a tad guilty about the near miss, A. M. made a speedy turn down a deserted side street before tossing her crummy, outdated piece-of-you-know-what lap top out the window. She breathed a liberating sigh of relief, picked up her cell phone and hit #4 on her speed dial. Boss: Hello A.M.: Boss, is that you? Boss: Why yes, A. M., who else would be answering my phone? A.M.: Er… right. Well, I’m calling to let you know you can pick up my luxury Ford Focus at Starbucks near the interstate. Boss: Why ever would I want to do that? A.M.: Because I quit! A.M. hit the end button and speed dialed her husband. A.M.: Hi hubs, can you pick me up at Starbucks? Hubs: Sure… Having some car trouble? A.M.: Not at all. I don’t have a car to have trouble with because I just quit my job. Hubs: WHAT?! A.M.: It’s time for a new career and I am going to be a very famous novelist. So began A. M. Hargrove’s career as a young adult paranormal romance author of self-published ebooks. Her series, The Guardians of Vesturon, centers around a family of six siblings and is a mix of humor, mystery, suspense and of course, love. Survival, Resurrection and Determinant are her first and second and third full length novels in the series and Beginnings is the prequel novella. (It didn’t happen exactly like that, but you get the idea!)
