Henderson Michaels possess an uncanny knack for putting bad people behind bars. Good-looking and cutthroat, he has a bright future at the NYPD, ex-military, and top of his class. He's one of the first police officers to move up in the ranks to detective in under three years. He also has a reason behind wanting to be a police officer, that reason being his late father who was killed in the line of duty when he was just a teenager.

Mariah Russo is your everyday daddy's girl, always getting what she wants and that alone clouds the brain. And she's about to find out the real truth behind her father, Jionni Russo and the need that Henderson has to take him down. She never knew she would become an unlikely ally with the NYPD and Detective Michaels. But, emotions and feelings get in the way of both Henderson and Mariah, causing them to get way too close for the department's liking. The attraction is almost fatal.

Years later, fate brings them together once more, but not being too kind to them. Levi Jabon, Henderson's longtime Marine buddy and good friend, runs into him at a police conference in California, happy to see Henderson. Henderson doesn't realize the connection between him and his former lover Mariah. But, things are about to spiral out of control when Henderson arrives in town.

Breaking Boundaries (5th in Breaking Series)

**Be aware that this is a manXman story so if that bothers you then please don't read! 5th in Breaking Series. There are certain things that make a man a man in late 1870's Texas. Being able to rope, ride and handle cattle to name a few. Shooting from the hip, playing poker and throwing back whiskey never hurt either. Nick could do all those things but none of that would matter if anyone knew the truth about him-if anyone knew his secret. So to protect that secret, Nick keeps to himself as he works on the ranch at Atkinson Spread. He likes his job and the bosses are decent but Nick is lonely. Covered in scars, both of the physical and emotional variety, he longs for one person he can truly be himself around. That one person he can love. Aiden is running. He's been running since his family realized what he was, called him an abomination and cursed him to death. Bakerstown Texas is where his legs and his will to run finally give out. Somehow he finds himself hired on to work at Atkinson spread though he knows nothing about cattle. He has already resigned himself to a life alone but that thought goes out the window when he lays his eyes on a ranch hand named Nick. Even then, Aiden knows he can't have Nick. Nick doesn't seem to suffer from the same condition that Aiden was born with and so there's not a lot Aiden can do about his attraction to the other man. Until a night at the saloon goes a bit too far......Can these two men be together or will their secret be found out and their disease dealt with the frontier way?

I'm a Villainess, But So What? Fuck Off.

Honestly, I don't give a rat's ass about anything from the storyline. Those fucking capture targets are so damn stupid, falling for an idiotic birdbrain heroine. Actually, they probably only fell in love with her for their egos. Why should I ever feel that they're a threat to my life? I'm a duke and duchess' daughter of a powerful kingdom, I'm smart, beautiful, and powerful. I'm just generally better than them. Yeah, I'll just focus on my work as the heir of the dukedom, spoil my brother, improve my magic and swordsmanship, play around, and kill annoying people. This shall be my new life as the prodigy of the century!This is my own story, not fanfiction. All my characters are original.Yes, like all of the other villainess novels out there, we have transmigration in to a villain. And yes, this is like all of the other novels out there, we do have a Mary Sue as our protagonist.Edit: Okay, I'm done, I think. Is there going to be another book? YES!! PS. Changed the cover pagelol
