“The law says I can’t love her. I don’t care what the law says. I’m gonna love her anyway.” -Lion Maxwell FEEL THE BEAST. The night the EMTs wheeled Lion Maxwell into my Emergency Room turned my life upside down. Although he was bloody and battered from defending his title as the reigning cruiserweight champion of Mixed Martial Arts, his cocky grin lit up the room. And every cell in my body. Our fiery chemistry was off the charts. The ER staff sensed it. Lion’s entourage and his drooling groupies sensed it too. SHE SAID SHE DIDN’T WANT ME. SHE WAS WRONG. If the two of us had been alone, I might have done something entirely unprofessional and completely unethical right there in the exam room. But I was his attending physician. A sexual or romantic relationship with him was grounds for my termination or worse, revoking my medical license. I wouldn’t risk my career on a moment of passion. It didn’t stop that arrogant caveman from doing everything he could to get me into his hospital bed. WANTING HIM WOULD RUIN ME… After denying his advances for weeks, the last thing I expected were the wild nights he would be spending in my bed. It was supposed to be nothing more than a secret fling. I knew it couldn’t last. He was still my patient. What we were doing was wrong. If anyone found out, it could ruin my life. But we couldn’t let go. We were bound to each other on some primal level that consumed us. Sometimes love is tragic. Sometimes two people aren’t meant to be together. But sometimes, two people overcome all adversity and build a love that lasts forever. Deep in my heart I knew that Lion Maxwell could be my forever love. As long as we kept our love a secret. I wish I’d known beforehand that some secrets are too hard to keep… ***Broken Lion is a scorching hot standalone romance with an HEA and no cheating.
In a powerful, smoldering novel from the bestselling authors of the Caldwell Brothers series (“Bad boy heroes to die for!”—Tracy Wolff), two tortured souls team up to overcome the past, finding the courage to heal . . . and to love. Jason “Cobra” Stanley was born to fight. With a father like his, he had to toughen up just to survive. Now Cobra tries to take out all of his frustration, all of his anger, and all of his pain in the MMA cage. But after he receives one too many hits to the head during a match, the cycle of violence comes to a screeching halt. Cobra wakes up in the hospital, under the care of a nurse whose blond hair shines like a halo—and whose pure heart touches him on the deepest level. Lorraine Bosch is a fighter too. The lone survivor of a chilling family tragedy, she prides herself on remaining professional, despite the chaos of the ER. But Cobra is the ultimate distraction. Lorraine knows she should run away screaming from his rippling muscles and shattered psyche. And yet how can she deny this broken man a second chance—especially since she knows exactly what he’s been through? Lorraine’s used to playing guardian angel. Now it’s her turn to find heaven in Cobra’s arms. Praise for Visibly Broken “When I go into a book hating the hero, and then by the end of the book love him, I know I have found an exceptional read.

Book 4 of 4 Reviewed by Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite "... This is definitely a series that I will keep following. As this is the first book in the series, I am sure the rest of the books will be just as amazing. Boy, is Roman hot. I love sports romances and I love a heroine who gives such an alpha male a run for his money. The banter between these two is so cool. It reminded me of the invigorating banter between the protagonists of the Temptation series by Ella Frank. Tuesday and Roman are rounded characters who have a lot of charisma, charm and allure to them. A well-written novel that will make you want more and more and more."

*Don't read this book if you don't like snarky, dominant, tattooed men who say things like "Open your mouth, and I will," after you tell them to shove it. And don't read this book if you don't like sassy, strong-willed, fiercely independent heroines who use phrases like "bossy asshole" as a term of endearment. You have been warned.* "Tattooed package of sin." That's how Savannah Ryan would describe her new boss, Declan Whitmore, the deliciously tatted and pierced fighter who holds the top spot in Boston's newest underground fighting organization. She'd also describe him as bossy, arrogant, and-depending on what he does to piss her off that particular day-an asshole. It's that aloof attitude, along with Savannah's witty comebacks and tight little body that land her on his radar. Unfortunately for her, Declan is relentless when he sets his sights on someone, both in and out of the ring. Unfortunately for him, this recently reformed bad girl is trying to go straight after heading down a dangerous path. She's not going to make this easy for him. In fact, she's going to make it-and him-very, very hard. Declan's not worried, though. He'll have Savannah come hell or high water, because if there's one word he'd use to describe her, it's "MINE."
They call me Killer. Killer Kellan. It's a name I earned in Afghanistan, before I ever set foot in a ring. I've been a screw-up my entire life, but joining the Marines was supposed to straighten me out. Instead, all it did was make me dangerous. Now that I was back home, I had nothing to offer anyone but pain. No path in my future leading to anything but misery. You'd think I'd have just accepted my fate. That I would have just learned to be content with banging the random ring girls that were always waiting for me in the winner's room. But it wasn't enough. Instead, I put it all on the line when Parker fucking Jones showed up in my life. And now, nothing is ever going to be the same again.
