***MISADVENTURES ARE STANDALONE ROMANCES THAT CAN BE READ IN ANY ORDER***
Straitlaced freshman Zooey Cartwright has arrived at UCLA determined to have a heck of a lot more fun in college than she did in high school. What’s the first item on Zooey’s agenda before classes start in two days? Losing her pesky V card. She’s definitely not looking for a boyfriend, so where can Zooey find the right guy to do the deed and move along without a backward glance?
At a party thrown by a bunch of football players, of course. Enter Tyler Caldwell. A beast on the field and off, cocky as heck, and often wearing T-shirts with sayings like “God’s Gift to Womankind,” Tyler is most definitely not boyfriend material. After a make-out session with Tyler leaves Zooey entirely unsatisfied, she is determined never to see him again. But her schedule lands her in not one but two of his classes, and it doesn’t take long before Tyler and Zooey have reached an arrangement for Tyler to teach Zooey exactly what she wants to know―and a whole lot more she never bargained for. Can Zooey surrender her body to this bad boy without giving him her heart, too?

She's a performer, audio book narrator, award-winning songwriter and media host/personality who decided to unleash her alter ego to write The Club Series to ensure she didn't hold back or self-censor in writing the story.

T-Bomb, Tait Bommer’s call-sign, has never described him more accurately. A loose cannon with a penchant for pissing people off, he’s now responsible for a major screw-up during the First Special Forces Group’s most recent mission. His mess has earned him two weeks of mandated R&R on the shores of Kauai, where the ultimatum is clear—straighten up and fly right, or don’t return to active duty. But he’s such a train wreck that even his best friend, Kellan Rush, isn’t happy about having to pull babysitting duty.
When their “vacation” is interrupted by a stranger bearing nothing but a glare, a Bowie knife, and a lot of curves in a tiny bikini, they wonder if the trip hasn’t been hijacked by island spirits. Surely they’ve found a goddess in this dark-haired beauty who not only sees their emotional scars but opens their spirits by exposing her own soul.
“Therapy” takes on new meaning when illicit desires become explosive passion…and their goddess’s sweet submission. Neither man wants to leave the island paradise, a torment that’s intensified when an old adversary threatens to steal their goddess—and rip their friendship apart.
Will Tait and Kellan let jealousy triumph? Or will they unite as brothers at arms for the most important mission of their lives in the name of the greatest cause of all—saving the woman they love?
5 star review by Kristie
A smokin’ hot, sexy, sensual, and suspense filled adventure sure to evoke gritty, raw emotions from every reader…
Wet is the fifth installment of the Honor Bound series from the incredible Angel Payne. What happens when three people, all with their own issues, enemies, and demons to slay come together in a common goal? You get absolute magic. That is exactly what Ms. Payne delivers with Wet. Tait, Kellan and Lani each need something…but don’t realize they need it until they find each other. With stunning expertise, imagination, and planning, the author brings to life a unique and fantastic plot and storyline. Add to that incredible characters that are as distinct, independent, and truly real as the story itself and you have Wet. The interactions between the characters, and the relationships that are formed will make you laugh, swoon, and yes…even cry. The gamut of emotions you will traverse on this epic adventure are breathtaking. Ms. Payne brings you to the brink and back with flawless talent, and a true passion for the written word. The characters were real, the story captivating, the passion scorching, and the action exhilarating. I can’t wait to dive into the other Honor Bound novels, and add more Angel Payne to my library. Another author to add to the list of favorites, for sure.
They could run from everything…except each other.
Grounded by fog, Zoe Chestain is stuck in an airport bar with the choice of spending the night with her two drunk roommates or one dark and delicious stranger. The Vegas show dancer decides to live dangerously and succumbs to a night of the stranger’s dominant passion. But her cloud of sensual bliss is blown apart when she and her friends are taken hostage during the next morning’s plane hijacking. Zoe’s horror deepens when her kidnapper reveals himself as her partner from the night before.
Shay Bommer is one of the army’s best. A Special Forces soldier following the footsteps of his brother, he’s aware of the risks of infiltration with the enemy. But going deep undercover on this mission with one of the CIA’s most sought-after criminals has cost him dearly. He’s lost the trust of the most breathtaking submissive he’s ever had in his arms, the camaraderie of his unit, and the esteem of his brother. But he’s on a quest to rescue a priceless treasure—his mother.
Zoe’s danced to some crazy songs in her time, but no amount of wild choreography has prepared her for the adventure with Shay—or the return to his bed that means surrendering more than just her body. As they run from the bad guys, the good guys, and everyone in between, she learns about the man behind the masks, and the Dominant for whom she’s always longed. But staying with him means dying with him. The heat is on. Can Shay and Zoe’s love survive the flames?
Dan Colton was once the CIA’s golden boy—a get-things-done cowboy who believed it was better to beg forgiveness than to ask permission. But performing the devil’s work was easier when he had the face of an angel—a damn good asset to have whether he was charming agency superiors…or training submissives in his dark dungeon role-plays. But that face was taken away, disfigured in a fire during an act of bravery.
Tess Lesange, known around the CIA’s Vegas office as “The Laser,” has only one Achilles’ heel—the brooding agent who once wouldn’t give her the time of day. Since Dan Colton’s accident, they’ve become friends, even trusting each other with some of their kinkier secrets. What are friends for, right?
Still seeking the submissive dream, Tess takes matters into her own hands and journeys in disguise to one of the desert’s most elicit kink clubs. When the Dominant she meets is beneath a mask and wielding a familiar voice, she wonders if karma has conspired to fulfill her deepest fantasies…and how high a price she’ll have to pay for it to come true. Is she willing to sacrifice the friendship she’s built with Dan for one unforgettable night in his dungeon?
Masked is Book 7 in
the Honor Bound Series. This whole
series has been amazing and takes you on such a wild ride with each and every
character. They are all struggling to
find control in their own ways. Angel
takes you on one amazing ride after another through love, heartache, loss and
finding where you belong.
This whole Series
is highly recommended.
Masked was such an
amazing book and such a great story! This is definitely a 5 STAR read from
This book is full of dominance, insecurities and
the will to find ones worth. Dan is your true dominant with a rough past. He
has been through much more than anyone should ever have to endure. He has had
one constant and positive in his life... Tess. Even with all of his visible
scars he is still the most magnificent man she has ever seen. Tess would like
nothing more than to experience Dan's dominant side in more ways than she can
count. Can she make him see that she could handle all that he has to give? She
would give anything for that once in a lifetime experience. Is she worthy of
him? Is he worthy of her?
These two have such an amazing bond and OH so
much more... They will take you on an amazing ride and journey finding
themselves in ways they never believed possible. It takes so much for them to
see that they too can be "normal." I loved the moment he realized
that taking care of a sub could mean so much to him... He has somewhat of an
internal battle with this thinking... "Meanings" are for normal
people, remember? People who have their heads screwed on straight.
"Meanings" are for the rest of the world, asshole. Not you. Will Dan
be able to finally SEE his worth and ability to have a meaningful relationship?
Will fate intervene and allow these two lost
souls become one?
While I have loved EVERY single Honor Bound book
this one is my new favorite ;)

Tara's 5***** Review
“Do I prefer the softer side of him? The one I can justify my behaviour for. Or would I rather he be the monster I first saw, so I can claim my actions were in self-defence. A survival need. I shouldn’t even be here. I should still be trying to get away, running from this whole thing, and yet I’m here enjoying all this.”
Sometimes being caught up in day to day routine is enough to make us naive to the world around us. Emily loves her quaint little life, taking photos and singing. When she is convinced a blind date is what she needs to shake things up, she is thrown into a world not many people live to see. Quinn is the ultimate bad guy. Hated by some, and feared by most. The life he leads would bring us to our knees, but one look at Emily, and he is lost. Both are unable to distinguish what is right and wrong, their hearts telling them one thing, and the world telling them another.
“I can still feel him. His touch, his tongue, his lips. They’re seared into my skin, my body accepting the contact and committing it to memory, easy to recall.”
Innocent eyes consumed my entire being. From the first few pages of the book, I was unable to stop reading. My emotions were played with by Charlotte and Rachel. I was enraged, turned on, disgusted and in awe of the characters. Each one bringing something remarkable to this incredible book. I couldn’t wait to get to the end, but at the same time was sad to see it end. I need more!! The writing in the book is impeccable, but please note, due to the content, Innocent Eyes is not for the faint of heart!
“I’m here because I am, for once in my life, in need of someone who counters me. Someone who offers the possibility of this new future I’m creating, breathes life into it with me.”
Eleanor is content with her boring life—mostly. She’s even fine being the quirky sister in a bevy of beauties. So imagine her surprise when one of her brother’s Sydney Smoke mates hits on her at an engagement party. Her. The weird sister, who wears vintage dresses and prefers her books to parties.
Bodie is shocked the next morning to find the soft, sexy virgin who seduced him with corsets is his best friend’s little sister. If he could kick his own ass, he would. And two months later, she’s got an even bigger surprise for him. Now he needs to convince the corset-loving wallflower that he loves her uniqueness if they’ve got a chance at forever.
He always did love a challenge…
Each book in the Sydney Smoke Rugby series is STANDALONE:

Aussie Slang and Rugby.
I often get asked, why rugby? And that’s a simple question to answer. My
editor said they wanted a rugby series in the Brazen line and they wanted me to
write it. And I was all hell yeah
because whilst what I know about rugby you could fit on the back of a postage
stamp, what I do know about it is more
than enough. Big beefy dudes – I freaking love big beefy dudes – running around
in teeny tiny shorts. How much more does a girl need to know?
And thus, the Sydney Smoke rugby team was born. A team of hot, Aussie dudes
sweating it out on the field, smack talking in the locker room and the showers
– the showers people!! the showers – as well as giving each
other shit over the poker table.
Of course, that creates some problems for the non Aussies in the world because...yeah,
we Aussie’s write and spell funny.
Well…we don’t actually. We write and spell Australian,
which came to us via some English toffs in big ships carrying boatloads of convicts who were basically just people
who were poor and hungry. But, like all
languages, we developed our own vernacular over two hundred years of
colonisation, peppered with slang and idioms. Language which confuses the hell
out of my American editor.
Please don’t worry, though, in an effort to save my readers confusion about
both the Aussie-isms and the footy terminology
in the rugby series, I’ve popped in a handy glossary at the back of the book. So
now, for your education or hell, just for laughs (aka shits and giggles), I
thought I’d share a few words and their meaning from the glossary.
Scrum – A scrum is when two groups of opposing players pack loosely
together, arms interlocked, heads down, jockeying for the ball that is fed into
the scrum along the ground. It’s like a tug of war with no rope and more body
contact or, as I like to call it, a great, big man hug with a lot of dudes
lying on top of each other at the end of it all. Very homo-erotic.
Pash – a pash is a kiss e.g. “Did you pash him, Shazza?” It’s the Aussie
equivalent to the British term snog.
Chocolate topping – this is what we call chocolate syrup and you put it on
your ice-cream. Although I’m fairly sure it gets put on other things as well.
None of them food.
Budgie Smugglers – a term (now a swimwear brand) for a
pair of tight Aussie swimming briefs for
men, so called for how snug they sit against the err…budgie…Yes, they are as
gross as they sound and shouldn’t ever
be worn by anyone unless they are a
buff Bondi life saver. Sadly the average Aussie male did not get this memo.
Curious for more? Why not start the series and your
Aussie education today?
