He has everything under control. Except her.

Reece Wilde put everything in his life on the backburner to protect his brothers and their struggling company, Wilde Security. With a major contract on the line, Reece can't afford any getting caught in a red-hot, X-rated moment with wild child Shelby Bremer, who's more trouble than he can handle. Now he's being blackmailed.

Shelby's mile-long impulsive streak gets her in more trouble than she'd like to admit. Between her sister's wedding, her coffee shop set on fire, and getting down and dirty with the groom's brother, things are definitely coming off the rails. With both their careers and their safety on the line, Reece is determined to keep them both safe...even if it means a Vegas-style shotgun wedding.

But gambling on a wild card—and a wild soul—is risky...and sometimes, it can get a guy killed.



Reece Wilde is the serious, practical one of the brothers so when he is inexplicably drawn to the unconventional, offbeat Shelby Bremer, even he questions his sanity. She’s also got a terrible reputation for secrecy and lying, one she admits to having earned.

It took me a while but somewhere during the story these two connected with me emotionally. There’s a lot going on and finding the convergences weren’t easy, especially with Shelby’s duplicity. But, I just couldn’t help liking her, with her tattoos, turquoise and purple hair and zest for life. I also liked that Reece loved the true Shelby and appreciated her uniqueness. Sister Eva comes off poorly here, taking off quite a bit of her shine.

I liked this story and all the associated mystery. It also sets up the next stories very well. Still enjoying this series and these interesting brothers.

About Tonya Burrows

Writing has always been my one true love. I knew since I was 6 years old that I wanted to be an author, but didn’t finish my first novel until 8th grade. It was an epic sci-fi/fantasy/mystery/romance mash-up and writing The End was one of the proudest moments of my young life.

I haven’t put down my pen since.

In college, after several false starts in more practical fields of study, I followed my heart and receive a B.A. in creative writing from SUNY Oswego. Now I’m working on a M.F.A. in popular fiction at Seton Hill University.

I spend most of my time writing, tinkering with my website, or reading. I love TV and movies and probably–okay, definitely–watch too much of both. Give me a good horror movie over a chick flick any day. (And, let’s be honest, I’ll take a bad horror movie too!) And if superheroes are involved, I’m so all over that. I’m a proud geek at heart and pledge my avid TV fandom to Supernatural and Doctor Who. I’m also a big fan of The Voice. What can I say? Guilty pleasure.​​

I share my life with my fur-babies: two dogs, Ella and Otto, and a ginormous cat named Nabisco. (Yes, like the cookie company. What? I told you I like my sweets, didn’t I? No? Well, now you know. Hi, I’m Tonya and I’m a junk food junkie.)

I’m from a small town in Western New York, but I love to travel. Some might even say I suffer from a bad case of wanderlust. I say I don’t suffer at all–I enjoy every second and I have a habit of moving someplace new every few years just to shake things up. Luckily, my animals are all excellent travel buddies.

     Another book I wouldn’t have picked and really loved which came from Ace Roc stars.  I seriously need to consider more space opera / science fiction because I enjoy it so much.   The world building is scattered into various dire circumstances.  The politics and rest of the world are a shelf in the background which the characters reference occasionally.  The layer of military and societal consequences dust their choices.   The four characters […]

I love John Charming. He’s funny, smart, badass and even a faithful lover. Pax Arcana series is always humorous which is amazing.  The chapter titles in In Shining Armor are great. I was giggling away over them.   This is a world with a wide variety of supernatural characters. These are not your typical supes. They are built with a broad imagination and various mythologies.  John is not typical, not even close. But heroes are […]

    When Anthony Townsend burst into Fenella (Fen) Deerham’s home, all bluster and indignation, he roused more than her awareness. She’d grieved her husband’s death for five years and suddenly she was being reawakened by the most unlikeliest of men.   This was a delightful story with wonderful, pithy banter minus the typical pretense and subterfuge. The romance moved at lightning speed but you just have to read it to understand why it works. […]
