The Hawke Family Series must be read in order.  While each book is a complete story about a different couple, it is one continuing story-line about the family and what happens in prior books is essential to understand the later books.  The series is now complete!

Savage Collision
 
Savage Collision is the first book in The Hawke Family Series.  It was a 2017 Romance Writers of America Passionate Plumes Contest Finalist in the Contemporary Romance category and was also voted a Top 5 Read of 2016 by 2 Girls Who Love Books Blog and Addicted to Reviews Blog!

The last thing I expect when I walk into The Hawkeye Club is to fall head over heels in lust.  It’s supposed to be a rescue mission.  I have to get my baby sister off the pole, into some clothes, and out of the grasp of the pussy peddler who somehow manipulated her into stripping.  But the moment I see Savage Hawke and verbally spar with him, my ability to remain rational flies out the window and my libido takes center stage.  I’ve never wanted a relationship—my time is better spent focusing on taking down the scum running this city—but what I want and what I need are apparently two different things.

Danika Eriksson storms into my office in her high heels and on her high horse.  Her holier-than-thou attitude and accusations should offend me, but instead, I can’t get her out of my head or my heart.  Her incomparable drive, take-no-prisoners attitude, and blatant honesty captivate me and hold me prisoner.  I should steer clear, but my self-preservation instinct is apparently dead—which is exactly what our relationship will be once she knows everything.  It’s only a matter of time. 

The truth doesn’t always set you free, sometimes, it just royally screws you.

Tortured Skye

Falling in love with Gabe Anderson was as easy as breathing.  Fighting my feelings for my brother’s best friend was agonizingly hard. I never imagined giving in to my desire for him would cause such a destructive ripple effect.  That kiss was my grasp at a lifeline—something, anything to hold me steady in my crumbling life. Now, I have to suffer with the fallout while trying to convince him it’s all worth the consequences.

Guilt overwhelms me—over what I’ve done, the lives I’ve taken, and more than anything, over my feelings for Skye Hawke.  Craving my best friend’s little sister is insanely self-destructive.  It never should have happened, but since the moment she kissed me, I haven’t been able to get her out of my mind.  If I take what I want, I risk losing everything. If I don’t, I’ll lose her and a piece of myself.  The raging storm threatening to rain down on the city is nothing compared to the one that will come from my decision.

Love can be torture, but sometimes, love is the only thing that can save you.

Stone Sober

 

Stone Hawke is precisely the kind of man women are warned about—handsome, intelligent, arrogant, and intricately entangled with some dangerous people. I should stay away, but he manages to strip my soul bare with just a look and dominates my thoughts. Bad decisions are in my past. My life is (mostly) on track, even if it is no longer the one to medical school. I can’t allow myself to cave to the fierce pull and ardent attraction I feel toward the youngest Hawke. 


Nora Eriksson is off-limits, and not just because she’s my brother’s employee and sister-in-law. Despite the fact she’s stripping at The Hawkeye Club, she has an innocent and pure heart. Normally, the only thing that appeals to me about innocence is the opportunity to taint it. But not when it comes to Nora. I can’t expose her to the filth permeating my life. There are too many things I can’t control, things completely out of my hands. She doesn’t deserve any of it, but the power she holds over me is stronger than any addiction. 

 

The hardest battles we fight are often with ourselves, but only through defeating our own demons can we find true peace.

Building Storm

She hasn’t been living. He’s looking for a way to forget it all. 

My life went up in flames. All I’m left with is my daughter and ashes. The simple act of breathing is so excruciating, there are days I wish I could stop altogether. So I have no business being at the party, and I definitely shouldn’t be in the arms of the handsome stranger. When his lips meet mine, he breathes life into me for the first time since the day the inferno disintegrated my world. But loving again isn’t in the cards, and there are even greater dangers to face than trying to keep Landon McCabe out of my heart.

Running is my only option. I have to get away from Chicago and the betrayal that shattered my world. I need a new life-one without attachments. The vibrancy of New Orleans convinces me it’s possible to start over. Yet in all the excitement of a new city, it’s Storm Hawke’s dark, sad beauty that draws me in. She isn’t looking for love, and we both need a hot, sweaty release without feelings getting involved. But even the best laid plans fail, and life can leave you burned.

Love can build, and love can destroy. But in the end, love is what raises you from the ashes.

Tainted Saint

He's searching for absolution. She wants her happily ever after.

Solomon Clarke goes by Saint, though he’s anything but. After lusting for him from afar, the masquerade party affords me the anonymity to pursue that attraction without worrying about the fall-out of hooking-up with the bouncer from the Hawkeye Club. From the second he lays his eyes and hands on me, I’m helpless to resist him. Even burying myself in a dangerous investigation can’t erase the memory of our combustible connection and one night together. The only problem… he has no idea who I am.

Caroline Brooks thinks I don’t see her watching me, the way her eyes rake over me with appreciation. But I’ve noticed, and the party is the perfect opportunity to unleash the desire I’ve kept reined in for so damn long. It also sets off a series of events no one sees coming. Events that leave those I love hurting because of my failures. While the guilt eats away at my soul, Caroline continues to weigh on my heart. That woman may be the death of me, but oh, what a way to go.

Life isn’t always clean, and sometimes, it takes a saint to do the dirty work. 

Steele Resolve
For one man, power is king.  For the other, loyalty reigns. 


Mob boss Luca “Steele” Abello isn’t just dangerous—he’s lethal. A master manipulator, liar, and user, no one should trust a word that comes out of his mouth.  Yet, I can’t get him out of my head.  The time we spent together before I knew his true identity is seared into my brain.  His touch. His voice. They haunt my every waking hour and occupy my dreams.  So does my guilt. I’m literally sleeping with the enemy and betraying the only family I’ve ever had. When I come clean, it will be the end of me.


Byron Harris is a distraction I can’t afford. I never should have let it go beyond that first night, but I couldn’t stay away.  Even when I learned who he was, when the only option was to end things, I kept going back, risking his life and mine to continue our indiscretion.  The truth of what I am could get us both killed, but being with the man who’s such an integral part of the Hawke family is even more terrifying. The only people I’ve ever cared about are on opposing sides, and I’m the rift that could end their friendship forever.


Love is a battlefield isn’t just a saying. For some, it’s a reality.
