Vonnie Davis welcomes readers to Wounded Warrior Falls! In this sizzling contemporary series, broken heroes meet women worth fighting for—and discover the healing power of love.

Navy SEAL Dustin Frank can handle physical pain; it’s his soul that needs mending. After losing part of his leg in an explosion, the panic triggered by his PTSD nearly drives him over the edge. So Dustin retreats to the Eagle Ridge Ranch, a charming hideaway tucked into the Hill Country of Texas. There he finds solace in the arms of a shy beauty who reawakens desires he thought he’d lost forever—and who makes him want to lose control, just when he needs it most.

Kelcee Todd sees beyond Dustin’s scars to the real man beneath: fiercely protective, strong yet tender. She wants nothing more than to feel his battle-hardened hands on her body. However, Kelcee is not the ordinary small-town girl she appears to be. Her brother is a killer with ties to the Russian mob, and after her testimony put him in prison, he’s out and eager for revenge. Now Dustin is her best defense, even if it could cost him everything. Kelcee could never ask him to make that sacrifice . . . but she can’t stop him, either.

But when each Maverick falls head-over-heels for an incredible woman he never saw coming, he will soon find that true love is the only thing he ever really needed…

An exciting and emotional new contemporary romance series from New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully!

BOOK DESCRIPTION:
Will Franconi has a dark past that he’s kept a closely guarded secret―very few people have ever heard his real story and he plans to keep it that way. After surviving a hellish childhood, he’s now living the dream life where everything he touches turns to gold. But something’s missing. He doesn’t quite know what until a simple letter from a teenage boy brings Harper Newman into his life. A woman who just might fill up the empty places inside him…if only he could ever be worthy of her love.

When a man has more money than he could possibly spend in five lifetimes, Harper has to ask herself what Will Franconi could possibly want from a woman like her? She’s learned the hard way that rich men always get what they want no matter the cost. If it was just herself she had to worry about, Harper would manage, but she’s guardian to her younger brother who depends on her for everything. After nearly losing his life in a car crash, she’s vowed never to let anyone hurt him ever again.

Still, sometimes Harper can’t help but long to change her story from one of an always-cautious woman to an adventurous tale of a heroine who’s wild and free…especially when Will’s kisses and caresses make her utterly breathless. And as he begins to reveal his story to her, she discovers that he’s so much more than just another wealthy, privileged man. He’s kind and giving, and he fills up all the spaces inside of her heart that have been empty for so long. Together, can they rewrite their stories into a happily-ever-after that neither of them had previously thought was possible?

“Tainted Cure is a huge success on different levels. First, the story is original, well thought-out, and brilliantly accomplished. It’s not unusual to read books with dangerous products falling into the wrong hands, but what happens when a good product falls into the wrong hands? The characters are lovely and engaging, and readers will feel inclined to connect with Dr. Everett Berning and the enigmatic Roberta Flint. Benito is the epitome of evil, a greedy character that readers will hate. Third, the pace is fast and there are so many surprises and twists to keep readers turning the pages. Ashley Fontainne has crafted an intriguing story that starts with a bang and ends on a very high note. You can’t help but fall for this author’s beautiful prose, her complex characters, and the oh-so-entertaining read.” – Romuald Dzemo for Readers’ Favorite

Scientists attempted to find a cure for addiction. They failed.

Dr. Everett Berning, a leading researcher into the causes of addiction in the brain, spent ten years of his life dedicated to one thing: finding the cure. Recruited after a strange encounter with the enigmatic Dr. Roberta Flint, Director of Research on Code Name: Rememdium, Dr. Berning is sent to work in a secret lab as part of the research team.

When the moment the scientists waited on for years arrives, Dr. Flint and her team are ecstatic.

Unfortunately, not everyone in the world feels the same way.

Benito San Nicholas isn’t ready to give up his lucrative business. When the news of a cure arrives on his doorstep from a crooked informant, Benito enlists the help of other drug lords from around the world to stop the cure from hitting the streets and destroying their livelihoods.

What happens next ends up uniting the globe–just not the way society ever intended or hoped.

“This was a WONDERFUL READ from start to finish! I started it at bedtime and figured it would help me fall asleep, but instead I stayed up all night finishing the book & didn’t get any sleep at all. The characters descriptions & aspects of their personalities are sprinkled throughout the book, yet I have a perfect full picture of each one in my mind (I just love Pearlie & her spunk)! The plot/mysteries had me guessing & sometimes clueless. It’s definitely NOT one of those books where 50 pages in you know “whodunnit” & then spend the next 200 trudging through what you already knew.” By Karmela C Lyman, Amazon

BARGAIN! BARGAIN! BARGAIN!

Meet Casey Reynolds – she is NOT thin, petite, clueless, virginal or submissive.

Which is exactly why Travis Craig wanted to ‘kick down her door and throw her on that bed.’

Read the couple that reviewers have said: “their witty banter will have you laughing but their hot and steamy moments will have you begging for more.” “a book with solid characters & lots of humor” “amazing read, I wish it was longer.”

No BDSM! Meet the Keurig killer who makes one tough alpha male go down on his knees and a few other positions as well!

All Casey Reynolds wanted was peace and quiet and a long vacation from covering the crime beat in Boston. That’s why she agreed to borrowing a villa in Mexico to rest, be alone and work on her novel.

But then he showed up — Travis Craig. He said he was offered the villa to recover from a serious illness. He had just lost his teaching job and had no money to leave.

She agreed with his plan to share the house — but on her terms. Soon rest and relaxation were a thing of the past when their double occupancy proved too erotic to control.
