Hell on wheels meets hell in high heels . . .

Macho mechanic Josh Stone likes to get his hands dirty any way he can. Ever since his wife walked out on him and their young son, he’s only had room for two loves: the kid and cars.

While pretending to be his best buddy’s gay lover during a romance writers convention, the player meets the girl who’s gonna rock his world. Leelee Songchild. She blushes at the drop of a hat yet writes hardcore smut to rival Penthouse Forum. To Josh she’s a killer combination. But when the truth comes out all hell breaks loose.

Too bad romance is just for books.

In the fast lane . . .

 New York Times bestselling paranormal author, Nicky—Nick—Love is anything but successful in love. This super hot alpha male’s been too busy running from his past and a pack of rabid female fans. Everything comes to a head when he meets the Wildcat of his dreams.
 Cool-as-ice Catarina “Wildcat” Steele is utterly untouchable until Nicky ignites a spark she can’t control. Their electric attraction explodes as Nicky pursues her, but he comes bearing the baggage of a family tragedy he’s hidden from everyone. Their passionate romance falls apart when Nicky discovers Cat’s secret rivals his own.
 Will they be torn apart . . . or tamed by love?

What happens at Bike Week stays at Bike Week . . .

Brodie Steele is a badass biker dude. Ashe Kingston is a hot cop with one helluva a ’tude. Their bad blood runs deep but their attraction runs too hot too handle. They make a pact. Sex. No strings attached. One week only. What happens at Bike Week stays at Bike Week. Yeah, right.

Ashe annoys the ever lovin’ hell out of Brodie and turns him on so much he can’t see straight. He keeps coming back for more. Ashe wants no part of Brodie outside of their no-strings-attached fling. But he’s hard to resist with his inked sleeves and rebellious ways, not to mention piercings in places that make Ashe melt. Brodie Steele is dangerous, delicious, and suddenly determined to have her.

Can their hot bond win out over the bad blood of years past? Or will Ashe be taken from Brodie before she lets him into her heart?

Favorite Quotes:

Stone: At Your Service

“I settled next to him, watching him closely in case crazy was catching.”
“LeeLee was a slob.  Either that or she had some kind of personality disorder where she needed to see all of her belongings at once.”
“She was flustered, flabbergasted, and a bunch more f words I didn’t need to elaborate one.”
Love: In the Fast Lane

“Oh hon, my bite is so much worse than my bark.  You don’t even want to know.”
“As I drew back, the peaceful feeling spread to something else.  It rearranged my heart.”
“Cat’s smile was saccharine sweet over a healthy dose of pure poison.”
“Next came the bouquet toss.  It wasn’t pretty.  The women jostled like field hockey players, all elbows, kicks, and jabs.”
“Absolution came just like that, with quiet words and small touches so unlike the fireball of attraction that had slammed us together from the first moment we meet.”
Steele: Into Your Heart

“I want breakfasts, and fights, and finding out how annoying you can really be.”
“She frowned at me as if I’d grown two heads.  The only extra head I’d grown was the one threatening to teepee my jeans.”
“Rayce’s husky laugh could probably give Cialis a run for its money in boner-inducing material.”

My Review:

These books are so steamy and sensual, I believe I may have broken the record for lady boners.  Each book in the series focuses on a different couple - and they all sizzled from beginning to end.  I am Rie Warren's newest fan-girl - she has mad skills!   Her characters are scary looking, yet witty, smart, broken, clever, and beguiling.  I vacillated between smirking due to the humor, and gasping and fanning myself due to the steamy sensual scenes.  The writing is unfailingly entertaining and fascinating, the banter between the characters is witty and sly. Each book was well-written and absorbing.  Stone At Your Service was the most humorous and fun.  The love story for Love in the Fast Lane was more volatile, yet the story line for Steele: Into Your Heart was more emotional and suspenseful than the first two books, as the characters experienced a full range of emotional events with considerable ups and down, gains and losses, grief and joy.  I was deeply entrenched in the story from the onset, and felt my heart pound numerous times, and for a variety of different reasons.  I had many more favorite quotes marked, but had to narrow down the list as to what would get past the censors.  These books are smokin’ hot, I recommend keeping an ample supply of cool drinks within reach to prevent dehydration.

With a Heart Forged in Steele

Boomer Steele is big. He’s bad. He’s the Retribution MC pres. He’s been dealt the worst hand imaginable and bears the scars inside and out. Not that anyone knows it. He’s watched his younger brother and sister hook up and hitch up with the loves of their lives, and now he’s the last Steele standing alone. Maybe he should keep it that way.

 Then one feisty honey makes him feel, gets in his grill, pisses him off.

She goes by the name of Rayce. And that’s exactly what she does on her motocross bike when she’s not busy getting her hands dirty with her fellow grease monkeys as the only female mechanic at Stone’s Garage. She’s into fixing bikes, racing hers, and making Boomer’s life a living hell just for the fun of it. Oh, and she hates being treated like a girl.

Sparks flying? That’s an understatement where these two are concerned. Yet when Rayce needs a place to live, and Boomer offers her a room in his house, their unquenchable attraction wins out over antagonism. Sometimes. Rayce’s crappy upbringing makes her think love is for stupid fools asking for heartbreak. She’s not willing to go there for any man. 
Not even Boomer Steele.

The bigger they are, the harder they fall.
