Riding Steele #1: Kidnapped
St. Martin’s Griffin
Laurie has been kidnapped by a rival biker gang. She should be terrified, but instead she is having an unexpected attraction to her captor, Steele. They are on the run from the police and all alone in a secluded cabin. Her provocative attire is not helping his growing desire for her. He must find a way to get out of this without getting into serious legal and love trouble.
You had me with bikers on this one. Honestly, nothing is sexier than a motorcycle and leather. Riding Steele has a good plot that did not get in the way of the more romantic sexy moments. They are also in a good setting for the plot, as well, in the cabin. Seldom do I have no complaints, but this is a home run for me.
His to Claim
St. Martin’s Griffin
Rafe Ranier, wealthy, gorgeous, immaculate dresser and co-owner of Ranier Industries, in his other life is a jean-wearing, leather jacket, tattooed biker named Storm who plays guitar in a rock band. When their father died and his older brother Dane took over the reins of the family business, Rafe declared his independence and went off to “do his thing” with his band. He went on tour for a year, fell in love, then had his heart broken. His band members didn’t know about his wealthy background and only his brother knew of his Storm persona. Then Rafe decided to return home and to the business, only to find that his long-time assistant had quit and was now a barista and the woman who had broken his heart was now engaged to his brother!
Melanie had quietly been in love with Rafe from the first moment she had applied as his assistant. They worked well together and he never failed to pay her a compliment, bring her little presents, etc., but it never went any further than that, no matter how fervently she might have wished it. Then when Melanie discovered that the person Rafe (as Storm) had been in love with was her roommate, that was the final straw. She moved on and became a barista. Now Rafe/Storm was back; bad boy, tattooed rocker with wealthy businessman mixed in, and both of his personas want Melanie. He had been unaware that his ex-love had become Melanie’s roommate – not knowing that Storm was the brother of the man she had come to Seattle to work for – and now had to figure out how to explain to Melanie that he had feelings for her, and only her, without coming across as a complete cad. He didn’t think she would believe Rafe, but maybe she would believe Storm.
His to Claim is the second in Ms. Carew’s hot erotic series about the Dominant Ranier brothers, but the reader won’t be lost if you haven’t read the first one. Rafe is every woman’s dream hero – tender, compassionate, gorgeous, and rich and a tattooed biker bad boy rocker underneath his designer suits. It’s a combination hard not to fall in love with and Ms. Carew does an outstanding job with his wooing of Melanie. Once you start reading His to Claim, you won’t be able to put it down until the very last satisfying pages.
His to Possess
Jessica Long had had her heartbroken…badly. Her bad boy, tattooed, musician boyfriend Storm had rocked her world for six months. Then, just as suddenly, he walked out of her life. Determined to get past him, she moved to Philadelphia and actively started job seeking, but her heart wasn’t really in it. As she was getting ready to go to a job fair, she suddenly spotted Storm in an expensive suit getting coffee. Not knowing why he was there, but knowing she had to let him know how she felt (and beg him to take her back), she stomped up to him, grabbed his arm and called his name…before realizing that it wasn’t Storm, but the man she had her next job interview with!
Dane Ranier knew the instant the young lady grabbed his arm in the coffee shop that he wanted to see more of her. The Dom in him immediately recognized the submissiveness in the young lady who, at that moment, was vibrating with suppressed anger, and something else. And it was that something else that he was determined to explore. The fact that she was job hunting at his firm just made it all the better. He could hire her and have her with him whenever he wanted. It was perfect!

Her heroine has been hurt and searching for a new life and finds a hero of infinite patience and understanding who’s willing to gently guide her to understanding herself and learn to love and trust again.
