Erica Lucke Dean:

“After walking away from her career as a business banker to pursue writing full-time, Erica moved from the hustle and bustle of the big city to a small tourist town in the North Georgia Mountains where she lives in a 90-year-old haunted farmhouse with her workaholic husband, her 180lb lap dog, and at least one ghost.”

To learn more about her, visit her website, blog, or Facebook page.

Elise Delacroix:

“Elise Delacroix married her high school sweetheart and moved to a remote hideaway far enough from civilization that she was forced to create her own entertainment. When playing charades got old, she came up with a plan to write erotic romance in order to keep life exciting. She may spend most of her days lounging in a pair of red flannel pajamas, but her characters wouldn’t be caught dead in anything less than satin and lace.

While Elise also writes in other genres using a pen name, it’s her collaborations with Erica Lucke Dean where she lets her naughty side come out to play. And oh, what a naughty side she has.”


“Lucy Matthews can’t believe her crazy luck. While she’s on a date with Mr. Wrong, her evening tilts from merely unfortunate to downright surreal when his attempt to sneak them into a club lands them in the middle of a diamond heist.

When gorgeous Max Callaghan discovers a hot and disheveled Lucy clutching his bag of diamonds at the crime scene, he brands her with a fiery kiss. His gang wants her dead, so Max rescues her by claiming her as his girlfriend. Lucy soon realizes with sudden, pulse-pounding clarity that she needs Max for another reason entirely, but their passionate ruse might not survive the intense pressure of a high-stakes mob war.”


Lucy Matthews is not quite twenty-one, a bit naïve, and totally swept off her feet by Max Callaghan. She is not normally an adventurous or outgoing person but once she looks into Max's gorgeous green eyes she loses all of her inhibitions. It was fun to go along with her on her adventure, even though we are not sure what side of the law Max and his crew are on. He seems genuine and forthright, he says all the right things but is he too good to be true? 

The supportive cast's dialogue is entertaining, I love Rabbit, Keagan, and even Mario.  The characters are well developed and I hope to see more of them in future stories. I also want to know more about Uncle Mick and Big Al, we didn't get the full story between these two characters! The plot is fast moving, all happening in a single event filled night. The biggest problem is I want more!

If you are looking for fun, fast, sexy read, that actually has a plot this may be a book you would enjoy.


Adult language, situations, and explicit sex scenes.
