She was running for her life….He was running from love
Bound and Saved
A few weeks after witnessing her stepfather order a cold-blooded murder, Cassandra Bowlin hides aboard a luxury yacht to flee the men after her. Dashing into a closet, she trembles in fear of discovery until the owner enters the room with a woman intent on gaining his sexual favor. The scene she witnesses between the couple leaves her shaken with arousal, making her wonder what all she had been missing from her own sexual encounters.
Zachary Allen-Vancuren returns to his new, BDSM decked out yacht, eager to take her out on a maiden voyage before presenting her to his friends. After putting several miles between him and the mainland, he slips downstairs and finds he’s stuck with a stowaway with secrets she refuses to divulge and a determination to wring as much from his planned four-day excursion as possible. His refusal to engage in any sexual activities is met with her constant, teasing antics until she finally wears him down and he gives her the lesson she thinks she’s been wanting. It took interference from a surprising source and two rescues by Zachary to free her of her stepfather’s threats and enable her to embrace a future with the one man she hadn’t been able to resist.
DISCLAIMER: This book contains elements of power exchange, elements of BDSM, and explicit sexual scenes. If any of these offend you, please do not purchase this book.
A Smashing Debut to the Series! One of those books that you just can’t put down!

An Excerpt from the Book

Take an inside look at Bound and Saved. Read this sizzling excerpt from the book.
The woman jerked upright with a look of such abject terror that Zach experienced a rare twinge of remorse before he recalled how far away from the mainland he’d already sailed. He recognized her right away as the new girl in the marina office, which added to his curiosity.
“I repeat, what’re you doing in my bed, on my yacht?”
“Oh!” Scrambling off the bed, she picked up a backpack, stuttering, “I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to fall asleep. I was just so tired, and the rocking lulled me to sleep…Please, I’ll leave…I didn’t mess with anything…”
“That’d be damned difficult seeing as we’re already a few hundred miles from Miami. Unless,” he added with a derisive lift of one brow, “you’re up to rowing back to shore. There’s a chance, a slim one, you’d make it about the time I return at the end of the week.”
Scrubbing her eyes, she mumbled, “What?” before jerking her head up and gazing at him with a look of wonder filling her wide green eyes. “Are you telling me we’re miles away from Miami? In the middle of the Atlantic?”
Before Zach could confirm she had it correct, she jumped up on the bed, drawing his frown as she stood on tiptoes to press her face against the portal.
“Oh. My. God,” she breathed, her tone conveying awe, and if he wasn’t mistaken, a touch of excitement. As fast as she’d leapt on the bed, she hopped down and flew past him, the backpack clutched in one hand as he listened to her flying up to the first tier.
“Great, I’m not only stuck with a stowaway, but a lunatic as well,” he groused as he followed and found her standing on the port side deck, gazing in rapt pleasure across the ocean. Gone was the fear she woke with, likely brought on by his rude awakening. The sun picked up hints of red and blonde highlights in her unruly, poorly cut cap of short brown hair that seemed to suit her pixie face. With a squeal, she spun in a circle then stumbled to a stop when she faced him.
Flushing, those emerald green eyes didn’t shift away from him as she said with point-blank honesty, “I can’t explain.”
That was a new one, Zach mused with a touch of humor that didn’t last long. “Why?” he returned with just as much bluntness.
Her shoulders drooped and for a split second, so fast he may have imagined it, the fear on her face she’d awoken with returned. “I’m sorry, I just can’t. But, I promise I won’t get in your way-did you say you planned to be gone for several days?”
“Yes. Four days I was looking forward to spending alone, getting acquainted with my new purchase.” He swept out an arm to indicate the yacht.
“This boat looks big enough I can hole up somewhere and you’ll never know it-why’d you trade in your other boat? It was already one of the largest at the marina.”
God, he hoped her penchant for jumping from one topic to another wasn’t a habit. He might have to strangle her and toss her overboard if so. And why the hell did hearing her point out his extravagance produce a sense of guilt? He could afford a bigger yacht, so he bought one. It was that simple.
“It’s a yacht, not a boat. Look,” he stated, firming his tone and placing his fists on his hips. “It’s obvious I’m stuck with you, unless you annoy the hell out of me, in which case I’ll toss you overboard.”
Nonplussed, which again, surprised him, she quipped with a teasing smile, “Guess I better be good then. I’m hungry,” she announced as the loud rumble from her stomach made its displeasure known.
“Well, you know where the kitchen is. Don’t expect me to wait on you.” Pivoting, he took a few steps before tossing over his shoulder, “Pick one of the smaller staterooms to bunk in and stay out of mine.”
“Oh, heaven forbid the captain share his spacious sleeping quarters,” she taunted.
This time, the twinge of guilt prodded a curse from him, but his anger at this whole fucked-up excursion prevented him from turning around and shocking her with a small example of what he liked to do with women who shared his bed. He wondered how sassy she’d be if he yanked down those jeans and turned her ass a rosy red. Climbing the circular stairs leading to the top level, he decided to take out his frustration with his stowaway with a round of skeet shooting. Annihilating a dozen clay discs ought to help improve his mood.

About THE BEAUTY OF US:

New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby delivers another sizzling novel in her delectable and sexy Fusion series.

Riley Gibson is over the moon at the prospect of having her restaurant, Seduction, on the Best Bites TV network. This could be the big break she’s been waiting for. But the idea of having an in-house show on a regular basis is a whole other matter. Their lives would be turned upside down, and convincing Mia, her best friend and head chef of Seduction, that having cameras in her kitchen every day is a good idea is daunting. Still, Riley knows it’s an opportunity she can’t afford to pass on. And when she meets Trevor Cooper, the show’s executive producer, she’s stunned by their intense chemistry.

Trevor’s sole intention is to persuade Riley to allow Best Bites TV to do a show on her restaurant. But when he walks into Riley’s office, he stops dead in his tracks. The professional, aloof woman on the phone is incredibly beautiful and funny. But can he convince her that he’s interested in Riley for himself?

EXCERPT:

“There seems to be an explosion in the jackass population,” I reply, and sigh, passing my glass to Kat for a refill.

“Where are you meeting them?” he asks, and I bite my lip.

“I don’t want to tell you.”

“Online,” he says with a nod.

“I didn’t say that!”

“Didn’t have to. If you met him at the gym or the grocery store, or somewhere else in person, you wouldn’t be embarrassed.”

“I’m not embarrassed.”

“Yes, you are. Otherwise, you wouldn’t mind telling me.”

“Fine.” I sigh and rub my forehead with my fingers. “I met them online.”

“Stop that,” he says.

“I don’t know where else I’d meet people,” I reply. “I’m at work at least fifty hours a week. I don’t do school or clubs or church, and I rarely go to the grocery store because I always eat here.”

“I could stop feeding you,” Mia interjects and I toss her a glare.

“I’m just saying, if you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always gotten.”

“I don’t understand any of the words you just said.” I squint at him, trying to process.

“Switch it up,” he says with a grin. “Try to meet people somewhere else. I mean, you didn’t meet me online, and I’m not an asshole.”

“Sure, you’re cute, and you look like you have your shit together, but I suspect that once I got to know you I’d learn that you have mommy issues and fourteen dogs.”

“You might,” he says with a thoughtful nod. “I do hide those things well. All I’m saying is, stop using the dating sites and try meeting people in real life.”

“Yeah. Easy for you to say.” I pout into my wineglass. “Do I need to send you some money for this counseling session?”

“Nah, the first one’s on me,” he says, tossing that crazy-hot smile at me again. “Just don’t combine Star Wars and Star Trek anymore and that’s payment enough for me.”

He pulls a few bills out of his wallet and tosses them on the bar, then stands to leave.

“Have a good night, and good luck,” he says.

“Thanks.” Just as he’s almost out of view, I call out. “Wait! I didn’t ask your name.”

“Trevor,” he says, and my stomach immediately does at least four cartwheels. “Trevor Cooper.”

“You’re early,” is all I can think to say. My cheeks burning, my fingertips immediately tremble. “You’re not supposed to be here for two more days.”

“I like to come early. Get the lay of the land, that sort of thing.” He smiles and waves. “See you in a couple of days.”

He walks away, and as soon as I hear the front door close, I turn to my friends and just stare at them in utter horror.

“Tell me that didn’t just happen.”

About Kristen Proby:

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.

During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.

Exclusive Excerpt:

A waiter appeared to take our drink order, and Peter ordered an incredibly expensive bottle of wine as well as some caviar.

“Is that all right?” he asked me.

“Sure,” I said. “I’ve never had caviar.” That was the extremely expensive part of the menu, the one I tended to avoid when I came here with Gilly. We stuck to appetizers like their yummy flatbreads or their specialty cocktails. I glanced at Peter’s mesmerizing hazel eyes, studying them because I’d never seen eyes quite that color before. Hazel that was lighter than brown, richer than green, almost golden. I could stare at them all night.

I shook myself. I needed to focus. I wasn’t supposed to be here having a good time. I was supposed to find out his true intentions toward Carmichael’s and the merger. I was a double-agent, and I couldn’t forget it. The waiter poured our wine—rich, burgundy goodness.

“To you,” Peter said, raising his glass. “You… intrigue me, Lori. And not many women do. I’m very much looking forward to getting to know you.” We clicked our glasses together. I took a sip and felt the warm liquid slid down my throat. Deliciousness.

“So,” Peter said. “Your mother didn’t hold back.”

I snorted a little. “She doesn’t have an edit button, but she let us off easy.”

Peter quirked an eyebrow. “Well, I appreciate her honesty. I liked that she got right to the point. Too many people spend their lives dancing around the issue.”

“I guess. But it put you in an awkward spot.”

“Why? I’ve got nothing to hide.” Peter’s eyes sparkled a little. I wondered if that were true.

“Everybody’s hiding something.” To myself, I added, like the fact that you’re a corporate predator, for instance.

“I’m not. Ask me anything you want to know.”

“Anything?” Questions whirled through my mind. Are you planning to gut Carmichael’s? Are you still in love with that gorgeous ex-wife of yours who cheated? Am I going to lose my job? Do you…. like me as much as I like you? Is this just a game for you… or something more? I could hardly decide which question I wanted to ask first.

“Anything,” he confirmed. “Pull no punches. What is the one thing you want to know about me more than anything else?” Peter took a sip of wine.

I realized there was truly one question I really wanted to know.

“Just what are your intentions….?” With me. With Carmichael’s. With everything.

“Oh, that one’s easy,” Peter said, sliding a bit closer to me, so his leg was fully pressed against mine. “I intend for you to fall in love with me.”

ABOUT DELTA: REDEMPTION

“My name’s Victoria–No last name. Don’t ask.”

That was all that the woman would share when Delta team’s expert trigger man, an Australian named Ryder, pulled her from the pits of a human trafficking nightmare and took the gun from her hand.

He didn’t mean to steal her revenge but survival was the priority. Now that Victoria’s home? She had a past he was trying to understand while keeping a secret from her that might tear her apart.

But he’s not the only one. When she goes missing, Delta team discovers that Victoria No Name was a one-woman vigilante force, taking on whoever crossed her path, from gun runners to a drug pushing motorcycle club.

She was exactly who Ryder thought she might be, and now he was coming in to help–whether she wanted backup or not.

READ AN EXCERPT FROM DELTA: REDEMPTION

The tears came. She couldn’t stop them, and she hated the path they burned down her cheeks, hated that Ryder was witness to her unraveling, just like he’d been in Russia.

He rested his hand on her back, not speaking, and he didn’t move to shush her. His palm simply rested there.

“Ryder.” She fell against him, and he wrapped his arm around her.

“Easy, love,” he whispered. “Take a breath.”

“I can’t.”

His chin touched the top of her head, and the arms that she knew could hug her like all hell did the job, wrapping her away from the world until the tears stopped.

“Feel better?”

Nodding, Victoria drew in a deep breath, wiping under her eyes. “Could you hand me a tissue?”

He was already halfway off the bed as if reading her mind and handed her the box. Again, Victoria wiped her face. With another fresh tissue to cover her eyes, she could barely look at him.

“This can’t be what you signed up for,” Victoria mumbled. “Sorry.”

“Stop apologizing.”

She balled the tissue up and hazarded a glance in his direction. “Why did you come here?”

“I was worried about you.” Ryder tilted his head back to the bed. “Can I sit again?”

Victoria’s eyes squeezed shut, but she nodded.

“I don’t have to. Never mind.”

She blinked and refocused on him. “What?”

“I didn’t mean to invade your space.”

Her head dropped. Ruined. He saw nothing but a ruined woman who was so fragile he misread what she meant with a simple look. “I didn’t—I wasn’t… I made a face. Or I didn’t mean to make a face.” She cringed. Such a mess! She couldn’t even get her words right. “I sound like an idiot!”

“You don’t.”

“I do. I’m not someone people worry about. Ever. I worry about people. That’s what I do. Did! I took care of people, and now look at me. I’m broken.” A sob caught in her throat. “I thought I was strong, and now, I’m this.”

He came to her bedside, swooping next to her. “Victoria.”

“Something happened to me. Over there.” She sucked a breath as she collapsed against the pillows. “And I can’t.”

He put a careful hand on her forearm. “Listen to me.” He ducked down close. “I don’t know what’s the right or wrong thing to say now, so I’m just going to say this.”

He came closer so their eyes met. His head was almost level with hers on another pillow, but he held her gaze and didn’t let go.

“Please don’t tell me to get up,” she whispered. “To get back to my life.”

“I wouldn’t dream of it.” Ryder shifted so his weight was semi-on the bed, but he didn’t break their stare. “We brought everyone home, and every girl said you were their savior, that you put yourself in front of guards for them, that you made sure they had food. If nightmares struck, you coaxed them back to sleep. You were their guardian angel in hell.”

Her eyes burned again with tears, but she wouldn’t look away from his emerald ones.

“Whoever you are, love, wherever you’re from, you take as long as you need to get back the strength it took to become you, and I will stay by your side to help you if that’s what it takes.”

“Why?” Her voice broke along with a stray tear.

“Because I admire warriors.”

“It’s just a job, how hard can it be?”

I was hired by his father to become his live-in caregiver.

It sounded like an easy job. But the day I arrived at his broken-down Scottish castle I started to realize it might not be as easy as I thought.

An Excerpt from the Book

Take an inside look at 50 Hours with this sizzling excerpt from the book.
DURING THE DRIVE BETWEEN THE COURTHOUSE AND MAMA�S BOY DINER, David Gibbons barely spoke. Even now, seated at their table near the windows, he remained quiet. Except for reciting his breakfast order, he hadn�t said a word, but Franco knew it was only a matter of time before he let him have it with both barrels, as his grandpa used to say.
Finally, when the waitress was out of earshot, he stared hard at Franco.
�Well?�
A-a-and there it is, he thought, running shaky hands through his hair. �Okay. Look. I know I should have called before all hell broke loose, but . . . but I was testing myself.�
David grabbed the sugar dispenser. �Testing yourself.� He sounded more like a disappointed dad than an AA sponsor.
�I thought maybe I could get through it on my own this time.�
�Bull.� He let the white granules stream into his cup. �You didn�t think. If you had, you would�ve given a thought to what happened last year. And the year before that.�
Franco knew he�d messed up. Again. And that he had nobody to blame but himself. Head pounding, he rubbed his temples as David�s spoon clanked against the sides of the mug. Had he ever met anyone who made more noise stirring coffee? He didn�t think so.
David pointed at Franco�s swollen lips and the bloody butterfly bandage a nurse at the jail had taped over his left eyebrow. �So, who cleaned your clock?�
�Well, there was this pool cue, see . . . �
�Real funny. I notice you�re favoring your right ankle. I suppose the pool cue did that, too.�
�No. That was the work of the biker, attached to the pool cue.� Franco chuckled, then gripped his aching ribcage.
�Busted ribs too, huh?�
�Probably.�
�Probably? You mean they didn�t take you to the ER?�
�They offered. I said no.�
�Idiot.�
David couldn�t call him anything he hadn�t already called himself.
�You�re gonna have one heckuva scar when you peel that bandage off your forehead. Maybe it�ll serve as a reminder, help you really think next time you decide to, ah, test yourself.�
�You�re all heart, David. All heart.� He smirked. �Except for your mouth, of course. That�s more like another part of your anatomy.�
David waved away the insult. �You know how frustrating it is, watching you get this close to earning your one-year chip,� he said, thumb and forefinger an inch apart, �and then you go and bungle it by pulling another dumb stunt? Every. Single. Year?�
Franco didn�t have a comeback for that one. He�d screwed up. Royally. At least no one got hurt, other than himself. David knew it, too.
The men sat in stony silence as the waitress delivered their food.
David peeled back the top of a tiny jelly container. �When was the last time you went to a meeting?� he asked, smearing its contents on a wedge of toast.
It had been more than a month, but Franco didn�t want to open himself up to another firestorm, so he stuffed his mouth with food and shrugged.
David counted on his fingers: �Pushing your limits. Breaking the rules. Avoiding tough questions.� He salted his eggs. �You remind me so much of my kid, it�s almost scary.� He used his fork as a pointer. �And that shouldn�t come across as a compliment, since he�s ten.�
Touch�, Franco thought, gulping his OJ. He winced when it stung the cuts inside his mouth.
�Maybe this community service stuff will finally shake some sense into you.�
He�d been acting like a fool for so long, it had become a habit. And yet he said, �Maybe.�
�How long did the judge give you to choose your community service project?�
�Twenty-four hours.�
�Well, it just so happens I have an idea.�
Franco stopped chewing. �Yeah?�
�There�s a hospice, a half-mile or so from your trailer� which is lucky for you, since you can�t drive�and I happen to know they�re in need of a gardener.�
Before Jill�s death, his landscape business had kept the wolf from the door. In the three years since, the only garden tool he�d touched had been the shovel Clayton kept out back for scooping up his dog�s poop. It might be nice, working hard again. Working so hard that he fell into bed too exhausted to have nightmares about the wreck that took Jill from him.
�You know the old saying, �If it seems too good to be true�?� Franco lifted one shoulder in an indifferent shrug. �But you�ve got my attention.�
David explained that his sister-in-law had spent her final days at Savannah Falls. �So I know for a fact that it�s a great place. I can take you over there, make introductions.�
�I dunno, Dave. A hospice center? You know better than anybody that I�m not exactly a people person. Dealing with sick people?� He winced again.
�Oh, quit your bellyaching. You�ll be outside, mowin� and hoein�, and the patients will be inside��
��dying.� Hungry as he was, Franco shoved his plate aside, because it hurt to chew, and the bacon and buttery eggs burned the cut on his lip. �I dunno,� he said again.
�You�ll do fine, if you just do your job and keep your big yap shut. For a change.�
Franco grinned despite himself. Had it been good luck or bad that put him together with a guy who never sugar-coated anything?
David slid his cell phone across the table. �Call your lawyer, find out how we go about informing the judge that you�ve decided to get back into the posie-planting business. Cause last thing you need right now is to violate courthouse protocol.�
Franco slid Carlisle�s card from his pocket, and as he dialed, David said, �When you�re through there, I�ll call Mrs. Kane, the director, arrange a meeting between you two. She�s a good egg, but she doesn�t take any guff, so I�d watch my step if I were you. With any luck, she�ll put you to work tomorrow.�
�I have a job, y�know.� At least he hoped he had a job. Clayton might tell him to take a permanent hike once he heard . . . everything.
It only took a minute to run the hospice idea past the young attorney, and less than that to find out that a phone call from Carlisle would get things straight with Judge Malloy.
He returned David�s phone. �The kid said I should get over to Savannah Falls and sign up ASAP. Said the judge�s office wouldn�t waste any time checking up on me. And that I need to keep track of my hours, so that when the paperwork comes through . . . �
Phone pressed to his ear, David wasn�t listening, because he�d already connected with Savannah Falls. Franco picked up a slice of cold bacon, and took care not to let it graze his sore lips when he bit off a chunk. He slid the plate close again. Hard to tell when he�d have the time�or the money�for another meal, so he did his best to clean his plate, listening as David explained the situation to the takes-no-guff Mrs. Kane.
�She can meet with you this afternoon,� he said, dropping the phone into his shirt pocket.
It was all happening too fast. Way too fast for Franco�s taste. �But . . . but I need to figure out how to get the Jeep out of the impound lot. And get over to the garage, see if Clayton can find something for me to do that doesn�t involve a driver�s license.�
�I�ll chauffer you around today. But first things first. I�m taking you home so you can clean up your boozy self. You need a shower. A toothbrush. And a change of clothes.� He wrinkled his nose. �You look�and smell�like something my cat puked up.�
�Cat puke, huh?� Franco smirked, even though it hurt to do it. �People can call you a lot of things, Gibbons, but tactful isn�t one of them.�
�Tact!� David got to his feet and tossed a twenty onto the table. �Who has time for tact with you falling off the wagon and going ballistic every couple months?�
Ordinarily, a crack like that would have set Franco off. For some reason, it struck him as weird penance, because he knew he had it coming.
