Excerpt: Wicked Dirty by J. Kenner

Sometimes bad isn’t good enough…

On the outside, Lyle Tarpin is a clean-cut Hollywood actor whose star is on the rise. Inside, he’s battling his own demons, shunning relationships and finding solace in the arms of a string of anonymous women paid very well for their discretion.

But when he’s photographed in a compromising position by an over-eager reporter, the only way to save his career is to say that the woman he was with is his fiancée. And now Lyle has to play a very public game with the only woman who’s ever managed to get under his skin.

But sometimes love has a price.

And now the only question is—can Lyle and Sugar afford to pay it? Continue Reading

Short and Sweet Summary: When Catherine Wright pulls over to help out a crash victim the last thing she expects is to save the life of hockey icon and media darling Brett Madden, and her life is forever changed.

Genre: Contemporary Romance

My Review:

Brett knows what it means to sacrifice and work hard to make your dreams come true but his accident will test his perseverance.
