Pre-Order for RUDE, Plus GIVEAWAY!

It’s time to celebrate! HOUSE OF PAYNE: RUDE is releasing next week and it’s available for pre-order! *happy dance*

The Last Thing She Wanted… 
From the moment Sass Stone overheard her social worker call her “broken,” she’s been hell-bent on proving her wrong. A broken woman doesn't have a posse of kickass friends, a foodie lover’s dream job and a string of pretty boys she enjoys playing with. Sure, she has scars, but they’re buried so far down no one even knows they’re there. Certainly her former foster brother, Rudolfo Panuzzi doesn’t know about them. The man she’d dubbed “Rude” could sniff around all he wanted, but it wasn’t going to get him anywhere. He’d never get inside—her pants, or her heart. 

…Was The One Thing She Needed 
A dozen years and several combat tours in the Marines has a way of maturing a man, and Rude is no exception. His last mission killed his closest friends and almost killed him, leaving him with wounds on both body and soul. When he looks in the mirror, the haunted eyes staring back remind him far too much of his sexy little foster sister, Sass. That’s when he knows there’s more to her than he ever imagined… and he’s imagined one hell of a lot. 

When Want And Need Collide 
One by one, Rude destroys the defenses that have kept Sass locked inside herself. But even as she reluctantly allows him to coax her out of her shell, a dark cloud casts its shadow on their world. Is it something from his past… or hers? 
109,000 words 

***This is the fourth book in the House Of Payne series, but each book can be read as a standalone. Not intended for readers under the age of 18 due to adult language and sexual content***

Cover Reveal for HOUSE OF PAYNE: TWIST!


And here's the back cover copy:

Tattooist. Artist. Dreamer.
Angel had been a schoolgirl when she came to House Of Payne, a displaced princess with only a fanciful imagination to her name. Now the world clamors for her designs, but that means nothing to Goth tattooist, Twist. Long ago she craved to see admiration in his sexy dark eyes, but after years of enduring his contempt, she’s given up. Leaving the House feels like running, but Twist makes it impossible to stay.
Tattooist. Artist. Ex-Con.
Two words came to Twist’s mind when he first saw Angel—jail bait. When he'd been released from prison for a crime he’d commit again in a heartbeat, he'd nevertheless been determined to keep his nose clean. Too bad he couldn't stop from thinking about getting into the pants of the House’s fairytale princess. But with a past like his, he’s no good for Angel. All he can do is watch over her from afar… whether she likes it or not.
When Angel’s injured, Twist appoints himself as her personal caretaker. She soon discovers that beneath his arrogant fa├žade lies the heart of a devoted protector. She’s going to need that protection, as Twist’s past has made an unsettling reappearance.


I'm waiting for edits to come in so I can hammer them out. If they're not too awful *crosses fingers* I'll release this Sunday, May 31st. Wish me luck! :D
