One taste of Jerricho Black, Dom for hire, and Scarlet Bailey knows she’s made a big mistake. It’s not the sting of his crop but the intimacy that makes her come undone. The threat made all the more real when her husband hires his services for the next forty days.
Wrongly suspected of a crime he didn’t commit, on the run and in trouble, Jerricho needs the money Killian Bailey offers him. Sleeping with another man’s wife is nothing personal, but every day Scarlet slips deeper into his blood.
Killian tells himself he is not worthy of his wife, not after she got hurt on his watch, and not until he gets his revenge. Now he’s hired a man to give Scarlet what he can’t. So why does he want to hit the man? Sometimes home feels strange and a stranger feels like home … sometimes the only redemption you find is the one you bought.
“Tell me.” Killian looked Black in the eye. “What do you cost for a day? A week?”
“What do you—”
“I want to hire you. For my wife.” There was real pain behind that statement. The words ripped up his throat, but he could bleed without wincing.
“I’ll pay you eighty grand for the next forty days.”
He got his first reaction, a tic in Black’s right eye.
“I’ve just offered you eighty grand to sleep with my wife, and you need some higher fucking reason?”

Are you ready to meet Javier Almeida? Cristin Harber's DELTA: REVENGE is available today! Make sure you pick up your copy of this explosive and incredible new novel from Cristin Harber!
A Tortured Hero with a Heart of Gold
ABOUT DELTA: REVENGE
Growing up on the streets of Rio de Janeiro, Javier Almeida has only his older sister to protect him. When she’s sold to a human-trafficker, he vows to hunt down those responsible.
Years later, Titan Group’s Delta team finds him, tattooed and brawling, a vigilante protector with information they want. They take him in and train him, working him harder than a man should be driven, until he’s a soldier harboring an obsession. Ready for revenge, Javier ghosts his way across the globe, tracking the men who took his sister and working elite private security jobs.
Meets Sweet and Sassy
Jilted at the altar, Sophia Cole turns the reception into a one-woman party. She’s intent on devouring all the cake and champagne, so she can bask in the calories she’s been avoiding. In the midst of the revelry, he walks in, the one man she can never ignore.
Javier is her older brother’s black ops teammate—an automatic Do Not Go There. But if there’s one thing better than fondant and a buzz to ease the wounds of a cheating fiancé, it might be a one-night stand with a South American military man.
It's a Game Changer
Javier didn’t expect to see Sophia again. He never thought he would even want to see her again. He shouldn’t have touched her, but his mind won’t stay away from her.
Now, Sophia Cole is thousands of miles away from the safety of her parents’ lavish estate and working alongside him in hell. She’s a staffer at an Embassy, and he’s there to keep them alive. There are bombs and bullets and blood-hungry enemies.
And then she’s taken. Gone. Just like his sister. But so much worse.
GET A QUICK PEEK:She couldn’t breathe. Her pulse jumped, and the most feminine part of her body came alive. A current of desire and electricity bounced between them, both their breaths quickening. He stepped closer until they touched. Her chest rose, and his fell. Javier’s hand moved to her bicep, drifting, sliding. He caressed up her neck— so careful, so delicate that he gave her pinpricks until he captured the back of her head with the force of his strong fingers threading harshly through her hair. Sophia sucked a breath and resisted him just because… hmm, just because his grip was iron strong and sure.
“You want to move?”
The tenor of his voice sent trembles straight to her nipples. “I don’t.”
Javier leaned toward her neck. His breath was hot, his lips even better. They were close enough to feel the heated tickle of skin on skin.
“No?” Gently, he tugged her hair. “Sophia Cole…”
Oh, God. He pulled again, firmer, tilting her face so their eyes lined up. She felt as though he could see her every thought without her speaking a word.
She couldn’t stop arching and making that same mmm sound he did. Her eyelids slipped shut, letting the feeling run through her veins, awakening every nerve.
“Paixão.” The whisper of the word contrasted with his hard body, which backed her to the wall. “So good for me.”
His weight pinned her and, despite the dominant hold, nuzzled her neck. Stubble scratched her as the scent of his shampoo made her weak. Scratchy and coarse, his fingers flexed into her scalp. “It kills me you’re here, and I don’t believe what you’re doing is about aid work—”
“It is,” she barely whispered.
“Liar.” His teeth grabbed her earlobe. The bite stung, and the pain skipped straight down her neck, igniting an erotic fire in her blood, making lust fire in her veins. She wanted more, needed to feel the bite again. But he released and licked the tiny spot and gave it a kiss, and all Sophia could do was tilt her head, a silent plea for him to do it again, which went unanswered. “Tell me, are you lying?”
Melting at the protective, truthful accusation, she let sanity leave her. If only he’d give her a biting smack of a kiss again. “Maybe.”
Javier moved faster than she could anticipate. His mouth took hers. A reward. Better than she imagined. His tongue probed, hot and needy. Wanting. His hands crawled over her body, but, God, her mind spun so fast she couldn’t place what was where or how it happened, just that he kissed like a man who could set her insides on fire and make a kiss turn into a touch passionate enough she could’ve been floating.
She cupped his rough cheeks, and Javier moaned. As if something she did was anything as amazing as what he was doing to her. Their tongues tangled, and his hands clawed her, pulling her to his muscular chest, eating her mouth as though her lips were the only things that could keep the world turning. This tough, strong man telling her good girl, calling her paixão, was worshipping her body, and whatever she had done to deserve it, she wanted to do again.
Javier growled again. Or maybe this time the masculine sound was a groan. Whatever the noise, he responded because of her. He gripped her hips, backing them again, this time to her bed. The mundane, utilitarian bed was nothing like the last bed they’d been in, and she couldn’t wait to jump into it.

It’s nearly impossible to be surrounded by love but not understand it. My parents, my sister, and just about everyone around us has no trouble accepting that love. To give your trust to someone else and believe they would die before hurting you. I’ve witnessed it—I’ve seen the power of it—but I’ve also seen the pain. Because for me, I’ve only loved someone I could never have, and my biggest fear is that by giving her my love, all I would do is ruin her. I should have tried harder, but I’m not sure I can because I only feel complete when I’m with her.
The only time I feel like I belong is when he’s near. His infectious smile warms me straight to my bones. Any insecurities I have vanish with just a wink from him. A sliver of his attention makes me feel invincible. But all it took was one drunken night of truths for me to lose everything I had begun to crave. Now, I’m not sure how to move on because I only feel complete when I’m with him.
He said I was too young. I said he was perfect. He said our families wouldn’t understand. I said we could weather any storm. He said he would ruin me. And he was right.

About Tessa Bailey:
Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans and laptop, driving cross-country to New York City in under four days.
Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.
She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband of eight years and four-year-old daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.
After his stepbrother is found murdered following a drug deal gone wrong, DEA agent Timothy (MOTH) Douglas goes undercover to take down the people responsible.
Posing as a college student, he sets out to learn more about his estranged younger sibling, infiltrating his circle of friends to further help the investigation.
The moment he meets Windy Lewis he knows she holds the answers.
MOTH pretends to be interested in the mysterious woman, only to fall victim to his own desires. For the first time in his career his personal feelings take him down a road he may never come back from.
When MOTH gets in too deep he will have to make a choice.
Justice or Love
A Maryland native who spends most of her time devising a plan to live off the land on some remote island, where no one will ever find her.
She is a married mother of two kids, who may or may not drive her completely bonkers. In her spare time she enjoys shooting pool, camping and spending time with friends and family.

Seventeen-year-old Cara Tillman is in more danger than ever.
All around her, Cara’s fellow Phoenixes are being attacked. With no other choice, she and her group take the only option they have—call more Phoenixes out of hiding and wage an all-out war against the Hunters. But with the lines of loyalty blurred, and Phoenix secrets to be kept, there’s no guarantee anyone can be trusted.
Logan Schmidt walks the blade of love and obligation—and just one slip may end them all.
After stealing the Phoenix dagger and going into hiding, the Hunters are convinced Logan is one of their own. But with Cara’s memories recovered, her heart is set on Logan’s return. The problem is, she may be the only one who trusts him.
It isn’t long until Logan’s disappearance is noticed by his long-time friend, Anton Botas, who is more than just an outsider.
Though Logan trusts him, the Phoenixes do not, opening yet another fault line in their plans.
Where there is one, there are many.
Determined to end this once and for all, Cara and the others must destroy the Phoenix daggers—the only weapons able to kill her kind. But in a raging battle, Cara learns the awful truth about the relics. Destroying them may destroy the Phoenixes in the process.
Can Cara and her friends end this war, or is their future destined to go Up In Flames?
Up In Flames Excerpt
Nothing kills a mood faster than having your girlfriend’s entire family watch you make out with her. I’m not sure what it’s going to take to get them to trust me. I mean, I killed a guy tonight to protect Cara, and to protect their secret, yet they still look at me like I’m scum. I can’t help thinking if I wasn’t with Cara and came to them offering to help them stop the Hunters they would’ve welcomed the chance to have me on their side, fighting with them. But no. I’m not good enough for Cara, no matter how many Hunters I bag.
I pull away from Cara and lick my lip, which tastes like cinnamon. She looks me in the eyes and whispers, “I don’t care what they think. We belong together.”
“I know we do.” I get on my feet. If I’m going to face a mob of angry Phoenixes, I’d rather not do it on my ass. Thanks to Cara, I can’t feel any of the burns Jeremy gave me, but there are still faint red marks on my skin. Seriously, that guy has been nothing but trouble for me from the start.
“What do we do now?” Linette asks, her gaze shifting from me to Mrs. Tillman and back to me again. “I honestly don’t see why Logan would lie about this.”
“You don’t?” Garret yells, thrusting his arm out and pointing at me. “He wants to be with Cara and probably thinks this is the only way to do it. He made up a preposterous story that makes it seem like he’s good for Cara, but it’s nothing more than lies.”
“So you think I’m lying too?” Cara asks, moving away from me toward Garret. “You’ve known me for years. You’ve stuck up for me and bailed me out of trouble. So tell me why you’ve been a complete jackass since my rebirth.”
“Cara!” Mrs. Tillman interrupts.
Cara turns toward her mother. “I’m sorry but that’s what he is. He used to be like...” Her voice trails off and I can’t help wondering if she was about to say Garret was like a father to her. I doubt Mrs. Tillman would be happy to hear that. She despises Garret almost as much as I do right now.
“I haven’t changed Cara,” I say. “There’s no reason to take your feelings for me out on her.” I look around the group because Garret isn’t the only one who seems to be questioning Cara. “I am what I say I am. If you don’t want to believe me, that’s fine, but believe Cara. She’s your family, and if you all continue to argue like this and divide instead of working together as a group, the Hunters will pick you off. I’ll do my damnedest to protect you all, but I can’t watch six Phoenixes all the time.”
Cara takes my hand in hers, uniting us against the glares of the others. No one says anything for a while. Then Mrs. Tillman steps forward and takes Cara by her shoulders. “I don’t know why I’m surprised. You’ve never been like the rest of us, not completely.
You imprinted when you shouldn’t have been able to, you recovered your memories when you shouldn’t have been able to, and now you’ve managed to find the one and only Hunter that hunts our enemies.”
Her eyes move to mine, and she takes a deep breath before letting go of Cara and standing directly in front of me. I’m not sure what she’s going to do and it makes my insides lurch.
“You may think you’re special because you’re this new breed of Hunter, Logan, but you’re not.”
I open my mouth to protest, but she stops me by throwing her arms around me. She squeezes me tightly and I stand there, not sure how to respond. She steps back and tears fill her eyes. “You’re special because my daughter chose you. If you really are her protector, then understand you have the most important job in the world.”
“I know that. I won’t let anyone hurt Cara. The Hunters will have to kill me first.”
