Title: Dirty Tactics
Series: Special Weapons & Tactics 1
Author: Peyton Banks
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 24, 2018
When S.W.A.T Sergeant Marcas MacArthur laid eyes on the bronze skin beauty who moved in next door, he swore he wouldn’t touch her. Leading one of the most elite S.W.A.T teams in the state of South Carolina, left no room for relationships. Marcas knew Sarena Rucker was a woman who deserved a man’s last name. She was a temptation he fought to resist and he vowed to stay far away from her. Now if only he could follow his own rules. 
The emergency room nurse had eyes on her sexy-as-sin neighbor. Sarena had a thing for men in uniforms, and Marcas MacArthur decked out in his S.W.A.T tactical gear made her knees weak. He was the perfect package--sexy, alpha, rugged and intense. She'd lusted after him from afar, and was unaware that he even knew of her existence. But she was ready to make her presence known. Only he made the first move by sauntering over to her, and let his plans for her be known. The sexy cop didn't realize he wasn't the only one that could issue orders. Sarena had a few of her own, and Marcas was determined to meet every one of them. 
The chemistry between Marcas and Sarena was electrifying, casting a light on the passion that burned between them. There are those lurking back in the shadows, who want nothing more than to extinguish the blaze, and exact revenge on the S.W.A.T officer by taking the one person who made his heart beat again. 
Marcas is willing to go to extreme measures to protect Sarena. Will he be able to rescue her? Or will Marcas lose the one person who gave him hope for a future?

Mac had locked his gaze on Sarena the minute she’d appeared in her back yard. He’d taken notice of the way his men looked at her, too. He bit back a curse at the hunger in their eyes. None of them had hidden the fact that they were openly watching her. Sarena Rucker, with her beautiful bronze skin, deep dimples in each cheek, was a registered nurse who worked in the local emergency room. He made it his business to know his neighbors. She had moved in next door a couple of months ago. His cock grew stiff just thinking of the times he’d seen her out jogging. Her barely there clothes did nothing to hide her delicious curves. The swell of her hips was enough to bring a man to his knees. He’d bitten back a growl at the smile she’d tossed Brodie’s way. A new feeling crept up in his chest. Was that jealousy? Never before had he experienced it, but today, for some odd reason, his fist wanted to connect with Brodie’s wide grin. A whistle cut through the air as she went back into her home. “Who the hell is that?”“Mac, you’ve been holding out! When did that brown-skinned goddess move in?”“Is she single?”Questions immediately shot out from his team, and they began discussing Sarena. Mac put his attention back on the grill and raised the chilled bottleneck to his lips, pulling a long swig from it. He tended to the grill, his thoughts still on his sexy neighbor. “Her name is Sarena. She moved in two months ago, and yes, she’s single,” he answered unconsciously. The conversation halted again. He turned his head and found all eyes on him. He shrugged and kept all emotion from his face. “You’ve met her?” Ashton asked, his eyebrows raised. “No. Ran a background check on her,” he admitted, turning back to the grill. He could feel the stunned eyes of his team on him at his announcement. “Really, Mac? You ran a check on her?” Iker chuckled. “That’s bold.”“Have you ever heard of approaching your neighbor and just have a conversation with them to get to know them?” Zain asked, his eyebrows high.“I’m not even surprised,” Declan drawled from his position. He leaned back in his chair, resting his feet on the railing of Mac’s deck. His friend knew him well. They were similar, and Mac knew that Declan had done the same with his neighbors. “Mac always needs to know everything about anyone around him.” Mac nodded in agreement. He had run background checks on all the neighbors. He wanted to truly know who he was living around. Questions were thrown out from the guys. They were like a pack of wild savages circling around fresh meat. “She’s off-limits,” he ordered. Complaints filled the air, and he shook his head, turning back to his team. “How do you get to make that decision for her?” Myles leaned back against the railing with his beer paused at his lips. “I’m your commanding officer. What I say goes,” he growled, looking them all in the eyes. “Besides, good neighbors are hard to find. Don’t need the likes of you sniffing around her and chasing her off.”Chuckles filled the air as he checked on the last of the steaks. “Food is done,” he announced, taking the steaks off the grill. His team ambled to the oversized table. He needed to get their attention off Sarena and knew she would be temporarily forgotten once food was placed in front of his men. He swiveled his gaze back to Sarena’s house for a brief second before moving toward the long table on his deck. His eyes met Declan’s as he made his way there. Declan raised an eyebrow, and Mac knew his friend read him. Mac wanted his neighbor, and in time, he would have her.

Book 1 of The Redenzoine Series
If the Devil is in the details, then blood is certainly a hellish place. I discovered my past in one of the more bizarre methods modernly possible; a DNA test. Now I bring you a tale of twists and turns – raw with truth – that you have not yet experienced.
Coming August 14, 2018

After taking a DNA test, four decades after my birth, I decided that writing a book about what I went through during the process of learning who and where I came from was crucial to myself and other adoptees. My first of four books, Little Dove, is a mostly-true story and is Romantic Suspense.
I write exactly how I talk. There are lots of Southernisms, sass, and heart in my books. At the end of the day – family, love, hope, and laughter are what motivate me to be my one true self.
I am a Southern raised, Sicilian born, self-proclaimed rebel Belle author who lives in my own corner of Heaven with my husband, two sons, and two fur daughters. I am obsessed with espresso, great books, all things Chanel, and my Great Danes.

When Lachlan Daly forced himself into my life, I fought like hell to keep him at a distance.

I wish I would’ve known the secrets and lies that laid behind those whiskey-colored eyes.

Because the minute I let him in, betrayal wasn’t far behind.

Between his deception and his brother’s lies, I’m not sure who I fell in love with.

I can’t decide if we’re worth the fight or if it was ever love at all.

One thing I do know—it’s time for a rebellion. 

There’s something to be said for shots of whiskey—straight.

Shattered Beginnings by Lilly Wilde IS LIVE

Note: This is Book One of the No Longer Broken Duet.

Branch McGuire

Hot, arrogant and life of the party …
I easily transitioned from high school jock to egotistical playboy. And when the chance to leave Blue Ridge presented itself, I signed on, dropping everything without so much as a second thought.

Settling into the lifestyle of a professional athlete, I indulge in the pleasures of my high-profile status. The only nod to my roots is my annual trip for a celebrity spotlight fix, but when I receive a call that forces an impromptu return home, everything I left behind comes barreling to the surface.

Ragan Prescott

Determined, resilient and born of a drug addict … 
From the outside, my life was that of a free-spirited girl who grew up in a normal household, yet nothing normal happened behind the doors of a house I came to hate.

Breaking away from the family dysfunction, I embark upon the life I’ve always wanted in Blue Ridge. But when I fall prey to the charms of a silver-tongued devil, it becomes a life I have to escape.

Will a small town hero be my only chance at survival? Will my broken soul mend his?

Can our Shattered Beginnings become the fragile pieces from which love is made?

Shattered Beginnings by Lilly Wilde

"Lilly Wilde was from her first books my absolute favorite author. She has obliterated any other author with this book.. The writing, the way it progresses through their day to day lives... So vivid and full of raw emotions, so true... Just wow... Wow...”

Goodreads Reviewer 

"Shattered Beginnings sets itself apart from the very onset in that it makes no apologies for its emotion, sometimes visceral, connecting to and tugging at your heart. I loved that this is not the typical love story. These characters have been through so much and a glimpse into their childhood experiences shows that they have survived but not without scars. The author doesn’t shy away from the ugliness that life has offered and instead shows their perseverance and survival in such a way that you root for them, even when making mistakes. The story reads with a cinematic feel, allowing the reader to go along for the ride, getting to know each character on a personal level at a real time pace. They’re written so well that even the side character storylines and arcs are engrossing and all 

Goodreads Reviewer

“As always, you weave a beautifully told story, even if it breaks my heart.”
Amazon Reviewer

“The story is fraught with serious subject matter but handled so well that it flows from start to finish without pause. It’s almost “experienced” more than it is read.”
Amazon Reviewer

“This story is so beyond what I expected. It’s so full of raw emotion and pain. I feel as though your writing is once again pulling me deeper into a story I may never recover from.”
 Amazon Reviewer

“It felt real and as a reader I was swept up into each moment as if I were there. My heart hurt, I was angry, and I felt the confusion, the hope, the pessimism—all of it. I am in awe of how realistic these characters are being portrayed. When it is ugly, they are allowed to be in that moment without a rush to make it all better, or half-baked excuses for the whys and hows of it all. Sometime life just sucks, it’s hard, it’s messy and you do the best you can—that is completely encompassed in these characters!! They feel real, like people you actually know and therefore can easily relate to.”
Amazon Reviewer

"Pain pushes until vision pulls." - Michael Beckwith
I believe that quote justifies everything about this Part 1 of the Duet. This book was phenomenal. It made me feel and experience the emotional roller coaster that Branch and Ragan were going through in their own separate lives. I became on the edge waiting to see how the two would come to each other. Then Lilly left me hanging and awaiting to see how their joining together will play out. Especially with Branch's playboy ways that sometimes is used as a shield.
This is a gripping story that is definitely a Must Read!
