The Boudreaux Series – Sexy. Intriguing. Easy.
Eli Boudreaux’s family has built ships and boats in Louisiana for generations. He comes from a hard working, wealthy family and his empire is growing by leaps and bounds. At thirty, he is the youngest CEO to ever head Bayou Enterprises, co-chairing with his eldest brother. His head for business and his no-nonsense work ethic is also quickly making him the best the company has seen in generations. His staff admires him, women adore him and Eli’s family is solid. But he’s recently discovered that someone on the inside of his business is stealing from him and he’s determined to find out who.
Kate O’Shaughnessy is hired by companies all over the world to slip inside and investigate every member of the organization from the CEO down to the custodial staff to find the person or persons responsible for embezzling. She’s excellent at blending, becoming part of the team, and finding the weakest link. She’s smart, quick-witted, and she’s now been hired by Bayou Enterprises, specifically Eli Boudreaux. The attraction is immediate and the chemistry is off the charts, but Kate has heard all about Eli’s playboy past and she has a job to do. Sleeping with the boss isn’t a part of that job, even if just the sound of her name rolling off that Cajun tongue and the way he fills out a designer suit does make her sweat.
Eli’s southern charms surprise Kate. The man whose reputation labels him as a ruthless, callous womanizer is not the man she’s coming to know intimately. He’s generous, protective and makes her smile,. Cracking through Kate’s cool, reserved demeanor and discovering her love of sexy, expensive lingerie is a challenge Eli can’t resist, but her sweet nature, love of family and sense of humor pull at him in ways no one else ever has.
But when the person responsible for trying to single-handedly dismantle Eli’s empire comes to light, and it’s time for Kate to move on, to what lengths will Eli go to keep the woman he he’s fallen in love with by his side?

A devoted cult member. An unforgiving leader. One man’s last chance to save his sister…
Micah Reed has a knack for ticking off the wrong people at the wrong time. When his latest attempt to do the right thing angers some drug dealers, he takes refuge in the sleepy mountain town of Nederland. He plans on finding his sister Magda and disappearing into obscurity with her. Micah is in for a big surprise…
When he learns his sister lives on a commune, Micah immediately butts heads with Lilah, the ever-watchful woman in charge. As the cult leader turns her menacing attentions toward him, Micah senses an even greater threat that no one else sees coming…
Can he convince Magda to flee to safety before it’s too late, or will he lose her forever in the process?
Nailgun Messiah is the first book in the Micah Reed series, a set of edge-of-your-seat thrillers. If you like complex characters, realistic dialogue, and layers upon layers of suspenseful tension, then you’ll love Jim Heskett’s cult classic in the making.
Henri Bordeaux, the son of a powerful Belgian political family, was the black sheep of his family. Repulsed by the cowardice and snobbishness of European high society, he abandons it to be an agent, first in the Belgian secret police and then, in the employ of the powerful cartel family of Paul Trifthauser. (See the four volume series, ‘Joseph Schneider, Traitor-Patriot.)
Called back by his father to recover the love child of a powerful French banker, kidnapped and held in a private prison in the bayou of South Louisiana, Bordeaux falls for the beautiful, yet naïve Cajun woman, Emma Jean Dronet. Dronet, herself under the thumb of her father, a psychopath, leads Bordeaux through the lawless Louisiana swamps where together they conquer the demons of their past.
Rose Lenox has always been more comfortable on the back of a horse than wearing ribbons and bows. For years she’s been content working on the family ranch, but lately she’s finding herself wanting more.
She’s determined to strike out on her own and find freedom from her unorthodox family.
Chance Goodman has watched Rose group from a spitfire little girl into a fiery woman. He’s wanted her for years, waiting patiently until he could make her his.
When she leaves the Lenox ranch determined to abandon her former life and to stay good-bye to him, he knows now is the time he must claim her.
Letting her go isn’t an option.
Chance knows exactly what she needs… and he’s going to give it to her.
Author’s note: This is not a sweet romance and includes highly erotic love scenes featuring a dominant man and sensual play. If such material offends you, please do not read this book.
He was mouth-wateringly handsome and suave, sweet and thoughtful, every bit perfect with dark hair and grinning eyes — but none of it fooled eighth-grade Sylvia. It didn’t take a pint of blood for her to know that her sister Julia’s new boyfriend Terry was a vampire…
Of course, a trail of sparkling would have helped, but there was none. Full sunlight, garlic bread and functional in all the usual boyfriend-material capacities, it was difficult to detect at first, but yes, Terry was a vampire.
Sylvia knew Julia was in deep trouble. Worse yet, Julia didn’t seem to mind.
