Meet Bookworms &Alphas!
Where men like to give orders, but women don’t like to listen.
She needs peace and quiet. He’s a distraction.
The only thing Jessica Slade wanted was some peace and quiet, and to finally finish her book. So a place called A Drop of Paradise was supposed to do the trick. With its stunning sandy beaches, crystal clear, aquamarine waters and tropical sunsets, it was supposed to cure more than a writer’s block. But when an unfortunate series of events leaves her stranded on a remote island with an overbearing, arrogant, roguish, but ruggedly handsome stranger, her life starts to seem much more like the romance novels that she writes about.
A Drop of Paradise is the first book in the series Bookworms&Alphas!
A brand new contemporary series from New York Times bestselling author Roxanne St. Claire! All of the dogs of the covers of these books are rescues and the models have donated their time…so a portion of this series proceeds will be donated to the Alaqua Animal Rescue in the author’s home state of Florida.
About the series:
Daniel Kilcannon is known as “The Dogfather” for a reason. It’s not just his renowned skills as a veterinarian, his tremendous love of dogs, or the fact that he has turned his homestead in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains into a world class dog training and rescue facility. Ask his six grown children who run Waterford Farm for him, and they’ll tell you that their father’s nickname is due to his uncanny ability to pull a few strings to get what he wants. And what he wants is for his four sons and two daughters to find the kind of life-changing love he had with his dearly departed wife, Annie. This old dog has a few new tricks…and he’ll use them all to see his pack all settled into their happily ever afters!

I’m in love with Skye Preston.
The Skye Preston.
The daughter of the wealthiest businessman in the world, and the most beautiful woman I’ve ever known. Her looks don’t compare to her golden heart. And her heart doesn’t compare to that big brain of hers.
But I could never tell her.
Because we’ve been best friends for twenty years.
She has a jerk for a boyfriend, and I’m not the only one who thinks so. The rest of the gang can’t stand him either. But I’m not the kind of guy to intervene. I respect her too much to pull a stunt like that.
But then I spot her at a party, too drunk to even walk. The men are eyeing her like easy prey so I take her home. But when we get there Skye is different. She looks at me differently. She touches me differently.
And she wants me differently.
How can a social worker cope, who goes to work one day and after eleven years on the job, find himself overwhelmed by a mother who fights to keep her newborn? This social worker, Grey, arrives at the maternity ward to take away a newborn withdrawing from cocaine due to its mother’s addiction. Grey does not expect the mother to fight back for her baby, nor the nurses and doctors to disapprove of what he is doing. What happens next unravels his life as he fights to keep his sanity and his job.
When Grey reaches his tipping point, another worker sets out to destroy his position at work. She maneuvers to gain his seniority, and she does the most terrible thing to him that could happen to a social worker. Grey, who has dedicated years of his life helping remove abused and neglected children from dangerous homes, finds himself surrounded by a destructive force so terrible that he is convinced he will die.
Grey is forced to go to a place where few others dare to go. When he finally meets his enemy face-to-face, he discovers a broken place in himself he must triumph over in order to take away her power. Through his self-discovery, he finds adventure, love, passion, and power in unexpected places. He finds hidden gems of life that surround everyone if they only dare to take a risk.
It’s been almost a year since I’ve seen her, the only woman that’s ever gotten under my skin, and made me wish I was a better man. More than just the washed up hockey player, turned sports journalist whose body is almost as scarred as his soul.
Layla Harper made me hope again. But life has a warped sense of humor, and I wasn’t the only Bennett brother that fell for the girl with the caramel colored eyes.
The night I saw Travis with her I knew I’d lost, even before I had the chance to fight. Because one thing I never compete with my brother over is women. Even if the woman stole my breath, and my heart with one single kiss.
And damn, what a kiss it had been.
Now, she’s pregnant with my brother’s baby. A baby he wants nothing to do with. And he’s asked me to clean up his mess.
What he doesn’t know is that I’m in love with her, and I have no intention of offering her the deal he’s laid out. I have a deal of my own. One that will finally make her mine.
A hot, wounded veteran struggling to heal & the sweet, goofy weapons expert he can’t stop sparring with…
After his combat injuries retire him from the military career he wasn’t ready to give up, battle-scarred Hudson Reyes now spends his new life as a movie industry fight scene and weapons specialist simply doing what he knows best: surviving. Until he meets her. The one woman who makes him want to live again.
An antique arms authenticator with a lifetime of martial arts training, Liana Lin has made a living turning the demons of her past into the passions that fuel, and fill, her life. She’s a scrappy little thing. A sweet, angel-faced wrecking ball to his good intentions capable of making him laugh, and turning him inside out. Hell’s bells, watching her execute that wicked roundhouse kick of hers shouldn’t be a turn-on–especially not when his head is the receiving target–but hot damn, it is. She’s a fiery, unpredictable paradox who wears her heart on her sleeve, despite the wounds he knows she has hidden as deeply as he hides his own.
Even though she’s everything he’s told himself he can’t have, Hudson can’t help but want her. Sure as sin, if one woman could sneak past the barbed wires he’s wrapped around his heart, it’d be Lia.
Now if only they could stop going at it long enough to find out…

THE CACTUS CREEK SERIES
All the Cactus Creek books are standalone novels with no cliffhangers. 🙂 Enjoy!
Meet the seniors of Keystone Academy’s Death March Study Squad: Viggo, Dane and Red. Best friends since childhood and as close as brothers, they’re three alphas who share everything in life.
Omega freshman Brendan Prince has no friends and no clue how to manage the brutal rigors of his new university. When Brendan stumbles upon the DMSS, the trio take him under their wing to show him what it takes to survive. It’s quickly obvious that he was meant to be their friend, but he definitely didn’t expect to be the subject of not just one, but all three of the trio’s desires!
What in the world could an awkward omega like him provide to three perfect alphas like them?
The Keystone Alphas is a story of best friends and college memories, and of a powerful kind of love that can only be shared between three alphas and one omega. It takes place in a contemporary omegaverse world with mpreg themes and features plenty of heat, lots of sweetness, and a happy ending.
After an unfortunate discovery involving her boyfriend and a blonde and a glass-walled shower, Winnie Briggs is bolting from her Chicago-based life in search of a fresh start as the editor of rural Bloomsburo’s newspaper. Winnie’s only desire is to put all of her energy into her writing — well, that and to officially retire her lady parts in an act of self-defense.
Unfortunately, as scandal unfolds in her new community, her closest ally comes in the form of delicious-smelling Chamber of Commerce director Cal Spencer, who also happens to be the son of Winnie’s benevolent (if meddling) landlady. Cal is a serial non-committer, yet his electric attraction to Winnie’s curves and quirks has him contemplating breaking his iron-clad commitment to never mix work with pleasure.
The couple’s sexual chemistry escalates alongside the town’s drama, leaving them wondering: can they survive the fall with their jobs, their hearts, and their pledges of non-commitment intact?
Vonn’s books are perfect for audiences who enjoy quirky small towns, smart and occasionally sassy heroines, sexy and sarcastic heroes, serious heat between the sheets, and happily ever afters all around.
Violet Caliendo escorts couples into the illusion of “happily ever after” as wedding coordinator at Willow Valley’s five-star Caliendo Resort. But Violet doesn’t believe in love or “happily ever after” anymore. She’s guarded herself from love so deeply since her divorce that some even call her the “Ice Queen.” When she has to plan her ex-husband’s wedding, even her Ice Queen persona takes a hit.
With her emotions in high gear, she takes out her frustrations by having sex with her ex’s best man, Ryder Carlex. Ryder is a playboy type and Violet figures it’s a simple one-time fling. But Ryder actually is attracted to Violet in a way he’s never known before. Neither of them ever imagines that the sparks between them will ignite a fire hotter than anything they’ve ever encountered – slowly breaking down both their walls.
Will Violet be able to let go of her past and embrace a possible future with Ryder? Will Ryder let Violet into his own deep, dark secrets? Or will their trust issues forever doom them both from achieving their own “happily ever after”?
This book can be read as a stand alone, but for more enjoyment read them in the order of the series, as all the characters appear in future books.
