Dangerous
by Tory Richards | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for the Nomad Outlaws Trilogy? How are the books tied together?

Sometimes a secondary character I write in a story will stand out for me and I'll decide that they need their own story. I rarely begin a story with the thought in mind that I want to write a series, but I had a couple of characters in different books that caught the attention of readers. Both Rebel and Jace appeared in other MC romances I've written, so I decided since they were nomads I would write a nomad trilogy.

*new Release* Forest Girl (aa Romance)
Esi Afriyie has been in love with Michael Yaw Badu since childhood. When he receives a scholarship to study in America, all hope seems lost ... until he returns to Ghana ten years later. An arranged marriage contracted by their families makes her dreams come true, but does the reality of being Mrs. Michael Badu live up to the fantasy? Michael may have married Esi, but he is in love with someone else—Forest Girl, a mystery woman he encountered just once in the forest. His heart belongs to her, and he doesn't need his beautiful wife awakening his carnal desires. He is even willing to sacrifice his marriage for another encounter with Forest Girl. Reality is not what either Esi or Michael imagined. Esi is disillusioned; Michael feels trapped. Will Michael give in and allow his heart to discover a love that was always meant to be, before it's too late? *Available in Print and E-book* WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT FOREST GIRL There are not enough words to describe how much I loved this story. The author painted a vivid picture with her fantastical storytelling. She crafted a story that made you fall in love with the characters and their stories that they had to tell. ~~ Cranky - The Book Curmudgeon

In Heat: A Werewolf Romance
Tabloid reporter Reegan Pritchett hates her job, but writing about fake hauntings and satanic rituals is the easiest way to keep tabs on the paranormal world. And if she ever wants to find the werewolf who murdered her best friend, she has to follow every lead, no matter how bogus. Private Investigator Zeth McDowell's life comes down to three things: making money, chasing tail, and looking good. While he's not a "pack" werewolf, he's fiercely loyal to his kind, and nothing infuriates him more than a bad wolf who escaped punishment. Lone wolves face enough stigma without the help. When an assignment brings Reegan to his office, Zeth reacts on a primal level. Never has his wolf fixated on a woman. Trouble is, she seems to hate him, but that doesn't stop him from wanting to peel off her clothes. To Reegan, Zeth is a means to an end. But when the story she's working on ends up involving conspiracy and witchcraft, she must rely on him to stop a dangerous spell. One that makes it impossible for either of them to keep their hands off each other. No matter how hard they try. WARNING: Contains non-consensual themes with an alpha hero with a runaway mouth, a feisty reporter with a monster vendetta, magic-induced sex that neither of them asked for, lots of snark and the horror of falling for the enemy.
Only A Hero Will Do
Defender of the realm…and his wary heart… Captain Grant Alexander is an enigma in London society. Dashing and handsome, he coldly eschews marriage. But the ton knows nothing of his role in the Legion: to bring Typhon, the traitor who seeks to destroy the British monarchy, to justice. When Grant is thrown together with fellow Legion member Elizabeth Atwell, he's instantly beguiled yet exasperated by this beautiful viscount's daughter. She has little interest in combing the marriage mart for a well-bred, well-heeled husband, but is adept at code-breaking and handling a bow and arrow. She also refuses to do as she is told, insisting she accompany Grant on his mission. As Typhon continues to evade capture and dark forces are at work, Grant realizes he must act, not only to protect the realm but Elizabeth too…not to mention his heart, which is in danger of thawing every time she comes close…
