EXCLUSIVE TO THIS EDITION--A NEVER-BEFORE-IN-PRINT WILD ONES NOVELLA 

First was The Wild Ones. Now, the next book in M. Leighton's Wild Ones series...

How far will a good girl go for the bad boy she loves?

Laney Holt is a preachers daughter. A good girl. Her only goal was to get married, have babies, and live happily ever after, just like her parents. Only that didnt happen. The two people closest to her betrayed her, and Laneys dreams came crashing down. Now shes left with an empty space she doesnt know how to fill. Until she meets Jake Theopolis, a daredevil with a death wish who has heartbreaker written all over him.

Jake has no interest in thinking beyond the here and now. All he wants out of life is the next rush, the next “feel-good” thing to keep his mind off the pain of his past. His latest rush? Showing Laney theres more to life than being a good girl—and that going bad can be so much fun. Her only concern now is how she can ever hope to satisfy the wild side of a boy like Jake. Shes looking forward to trying. And so is Jake.

If you love The Wild Ones, you'll be just as wild for M. Leighton's Bad Boys series which includes Down to You, Up to Me, and Everything for Us.

Review:

"Leighton's second Wild Ones contemporary (after The Wild Ones) sizzles with passion and romance. Preacher's daughter Laney Holt is a paralegal working on itemizing the estate belonging to the Theopolis family. This leads her to bad boy Jake Theopolis, the gorgeous man she once kissed at a local South Carolina fair. When Laney's father pushes her to get back together with her smarmy ex-fiancé, she defiantly leaves her parents' home and moves in with Jake. Jake slowly wears down Laney's defenses, knowing that the idyllic setting of his family's peach farm is the perfect venue for seduction. But the no-strings-attached sex soon involves deeper emotions, and Jake begins to wish that he were capable of offering Laney a committed relationship. Leighton's intensely sensuous novel alternates between Laney and Jake's first-person perspectives, creating a heart-wrenching emotional story. Fans and newcomers will eagerly await the next book in the series." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

Hes someone she cant trust…

Shes someone he thinks he knows…

Violet Wilson is a wallflower. Shy, serious, and accident-prone, shes got a bad habit of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The night shes forced to pose with her friend might just be the worst time of all—thats when she meets Jet Blevins. She knows better than to get involved with someone like him, but he touches her in ways she never expected, never wanted before.

On the outside, Jet is a typical rocker, an arrogant lead guitarist who unapologetically lives a wild lifestyle. But on the inside, hes battling demons and using the stage to escape the troubles of his past and the addictions of his present. Until the night he sees Violet standing at the back of the room. She brings his life into focus. She knows his secrets. Shes the girl he cant forget, and the one thing he craves more than his addiction.

But can they ever hope to have a future when their very foundation is nothing but lies?

Synopsis:

From the author of the New York Times bestselling Bad Boys novels comes the first in a dark, sexy contemporary trilogy.

Is she strong enough to trust the most dangerous man shes ever met? And is he strong enough to let her?

How would I describe myself? Well, Im Muse Harper. Im a twenty-something painter who loves red wine, quirky movies, and men with a fatal flaw. But that was before I met Jasper King. He became my fatal flaw. Eight months ago, I had a choice to make—abandon everything Ive ever known to protect my family, or stay and risk someone getting hurt. I chose the former. My plan was working just fine until I found out my father had gone missing.

Thats when I met Jasper. A bounty hunter with the eyes of a tiger and the nose of a bloodhound, he was supposed to help me find my father. What I didnt know was that meeting him was no accident. Hunting people isnt all that Jasper does. And helping me was only part of his plan. I just wish Id found out sooner, before my heart got involved. But even then, I dont know if Id have done things differently.

Now, I have another choice to make—trust the man that Im falling in love with and hope that hell do the right thing, or run as far away from him as I can get.
