The Opposite of Wild (Clover Park, Book 1) by Kylie Gilmore

Each book in the Clover Park Series can be read as a stand-alone novel, or for more fun read them in order. Characters you’ve loved from past books frequently pop up in other books.

Unleash the wild woman…?

Ex-cop Ryan O’Hare takes one look at buttoned-up control freak Liz Garner and just itches to loosen the woman up. Not that he’s into her. Because a woman like that comes with way too many expectations. Not to mention, she practically works for him, and he didn’t hire Liz to watch after his beloved Harley-stealing Gran so he could turn Liz loose in his bed. Still, there’s something about her, a hidden wild side, that makes him wonder what it would take.

Liz must be crazy to work for the insensitive, arrogant, horribly…hot man she’s avoided for years. Unfortunately, she needs the money and Ryan’s grandmother needs a keeper. (Midnight tango lessons and ziplines with Gran, anyone?) Ryan’s rare smile and swaggering confidence have Liz torn between throwing her favorite pinot grigio at his head or throwing herself at him. Can this control freak find a way to let loose with the tough, no-strings guy who once broke her heart?

With the help of the quirky island residents she has befriended, she slowly finds the strength to seek out happiness on her own terms. But as soon as she has sworn off men and is standing on her own two feet, Lily meets Ian, the alluring artist who lives next door, and her new life is suddenly thrown off course. The last thing she wants to do right now is to open her heart to another man.

Ultimately, Lily must decide if it’s worth giving up her soul for security or risking everything to follow her heart in this romantic love story.

My stepbrother is raging hard and he won’t be controlled.

When we first met, he was only a perfectly gorgeous stranger all covered in tattoos.

I couldn’t resist pressing my body close against his. I couldn’t say no when he took me out to the alley to do more than just dance.

How could I have known my overbearing Dad just married his crazy-as-hell Mom?

His name is Nathan Magnus and he’s a total prick. He’s a Navy SEAL, trained to fight and kill in a thousand different ways, and he thinks he’s the best thing to ever happen to me.

He’s everything I hate wrapped in everything I want.

Now he’s staying at our house all summer.

And that’s not even the worst part.

Someone is after me because of my father’s shady business deals, and only Nathan is strong enough to keep everyone safe.

He has no sense of boundaries. He’s my bodyguard, but that doesn’t mean he can strip down and take a shower right in front of me.

And of course I can’t help but stare. He’s delicious, provocative, dirty, and arrogant.

I may be safe with my stepSEAL around, but I don’t stand a chance.

Raging Hard is heart-thumping violent, oh-too-steamy sexy, and features a hero with a filthy mouth. It’s only recommended for audiences 18+.

Raging Hard is a standalone, full-length novel. No cliffhanger. Guaranteed HEA.

Child of Silence (Bo Bradley Series Book 1) by Abigail Padgett

In Child of Silence, the first award-winning Bo Bradley Mystery, a wise old Paiute woman finds a four-year-old boy tied to a mattress in an abandoned shack in the hills above San Diego. Child abuse investigator Bo Bradley gets the case. Staff at St. Mary’s Hospital for Children assume the boy is mentally impaired because he cannot talk, but Bo remembers a little sister named Laurie. She knows that the boy, like Laurie, is deaf.

Complicating things is Bo’s manic depressive disorder, a troubling but occasionally valuable problem for which she always, well sometimes, takes her meds. The prime directive in Bo’s job is “Don’t become emotionally involved with the child!” But the little boy is so bright inside his silence, and so alone. Bo feels the ominous first ripples of an oncoming manic episode and grabs her meds, but they won’t have much effect for weeks and the child is in danger now!

Risking her job and ultimately her life in a perhaps-delusional race to protect a four-year-old whose only word is his own name – “Weppo” – Bo finds herself alone with the child in a desert night fraught with terrors as she tries to reach an imagined safety among the Paiute. But political intrigue, desperate secrets and a relentless evil lurk in every shadow of a moonlit landscape in which Bo has only her own intense and uncanny perceptions as guide. She knows she’s “crazy,” but sometimes crazy sees what rational cannot. And “crazy” is now Weppo’s only chance for a life!
