Baby stepsโ€ฆ
Mads Daniels may have landed at House Of Payne, but she sure as hell doesnโ€™t want to be there. Her tattooist father started out with Payne, and his tales of the boss stealing artistsโ€™ work freaks her out in a big way. If Payne ever attempts to steal her art, sheโ€™ll have no choice but to unveil him as a fraud. And that could bring down House of Payne itself.

Step by stepโ€ฆ
Sage McCormick never had a stable home until he joined House of Payne. Itโ€™s such a sweet gig heโ€™s even willing to get involved in events like its annual charity auction. Everything is just about perfect, except for the newest recruit, Mads. She refuses to fit in, and heโ€™s determined to find out why. Getting her sexy ass involved in the auction is only the first step in getting close to herโ€ฆ in more ways than one.

Leap of faith
The cocky charm Sage exudes like a pheromone bowls Mads over straight into his bed. But as Sage tries to coax her into thinking of the House as her new home, she realizes she has a decision to makeโ€”listen to the poison her father spews, or put her faith in the man she loves.

โ€œSpeaking of portable,โ€ she added, turning to hand him his promised cookies, โ€œlemon bars and red velvet crinkles. Youโ€™re going to have to hit the gym hard to work these off.โ€

โ€œYou think I have something to worry about?โ€ A smile played around his lips as he set the cookies aside and grabbed her hands. Then he pressed them, palms flat, against his stomach and slowly moved them over the taut, clearly ridged muscles of what had to be a mouth-watering six-pack. โ€œSee? I wasnโ€™t lying. I do work out to make sure my sweet tooth doesnโ€™t get the better of me.โ€

She had to take a second to make sure she wouldnโ€™t drool when she spoke. โ€œSo it would seem.โ€

โ€œSo? Think I should worry about gettingโ€ฆ soft?โ€

โ€œPerish the thought.โ€ There went her heart again, tripping over itself. Who knew that another human being could cause a freaking heart condition? โ€œI doubt I’ve ever felt anything more perfect than you. I think I’m impressed.โ€

His hands left hers to pull her by the hips up against him. โ€œYou think? You mean you’re not convinced?โ€

โ€œIt takes a lot to impress me.โ€ Her skin lit on fire wherever they touched, and all at once the only thing she could think about was getting more of that fire and burning herself alive with it. โ€œYou’re going to have to show me more than this. A lot more.โ€

โ€œAnd to think I believed you were skittish,โ€ he marveled, lowering his head. โ€œGuess I’ve still got a lot to learn about you.โ€

โ€œIโ€™m sure you’ll find Iโ€™m a very good teacher.โ€ 

โ€œWhat I’m finding is that you like to talk when you should be kissing the hell out of me.โ€

โ€œAh.โ€ She rolled up on her tiptoes, reveling in the friction between their bodies. โ€œI should probably get on that.โ€

โ€œWoman, I wonโ€™t be happy until you get on me.โ€ He was still smiling when his mouth claimed hers and made her world explode.


A competitive figure skater from the age of eight, Stacy Gail began writing stories in between events to pass the time. By fourteen, she told her parents she was either going to be a figure skating coach who was also a published romance author, or a romance author who was also a figure skating pro. Now, with a day job of playing on the ice with her students, and writing everything from steampunk to cyberpunk, contemporary to paranormal at night, both dreams have come true.
