In 1851, Cecilia Paring has serious reservations about marrying her fiancé, Devin Montlake.

Although Devin Montlake loves his orderly life as a barrister, he’s determined to follow his roadmap to achieve his goal of becoming a judge. His biggest obstacle seems to be convincing his headstrong fiancée to fulfill her social obligations with a modicum of propriety. But when the jewelry collection belonging to Cecilia’s family is stolen the night before it is to be auctioned off and Devin is framed for the crime, he discovers that following his much-loved rules won’t solve this particular problem. He’ll need the inventiveness of his irrepressible fiancée to catch the thief.

London, 1853

Despite Lady Catherine’s love of fencing, she needs to stop pretending to be a boy and fraternizing with men…but not until after the fencing tournament! Her mother plans to marry her off by the end of the season, so this will be her last chance to enjoy her freedom. When she impulsively puts her reputation at risk to save the life of a dashing competitor, all seems lost when he sees through her disguise, but he vows never to reveal her secret. Thank goodness for gentlemanly honor!

Daniel, Marquess of Huntley, wants to overcome the rumors of his father’s madness so that he can be embraced by London society. His plan is to marry the most proper woman who will have him, and then raise stable, respectable children. He certainly isn’t interested in some hoyden with a penchant for masquerading as a boy and flaunting society’s rules. In fact, he’d prefer to keep his distance.

When an obsessed suitor discovers Catherine’s secret and threatens blackmail, the only path out of social ruin is marriage. But what kind of protection does matrimony provide when a vengeful suitor is plotting the ultimate revenge?

~ Heist by Casey Clipper Release Blitz + Review ~

Heist Tour Banner

Title: Heist

Author: Casey Clipper

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: November 17, 2015

Cover

Synopsis

From the author of the international bestselling The Love Series, Contemporary Romance Author Casey Clipper, comes a new contemporary romance series:

Heist (The Men of Law)

Jason Campbell and his team are on a mission—to find the jewelry thief that has hit every store in their town. They have zero leads. Their cagey burglar uses equipment and uncanny skills to prevent the detectives from gaining ground in the case that has dragged on far too long. Jasonʼs endless hours working on this case are taking a toll. He has no life outside of his job. His nights are spent alone in a cold bed with dreams of a faceless bandit haunting him. Yes, their suspect is a woman bent on toying with law enforcement.

Hannah Lakely is doing whatever it takes to survive. After escaping from the men who her parents owe money, she vows never to be put in a vulnerable position to be injured again. Those men favor breaking bones, specifically hers. Hannah does what is necessary for a woman with no high school diploma, no college education, no skill set, and in need of a large sum of money immediately to pay off her parentsʼ loan. A world of crime is an empty life with no one to count on except for her only friend, who is also her conspirator. Sheʼs alone in the world, always looking over her shoulder for the mob or law enforcement, afraid of the day that either catches up with her.

Jasonʼs life of non-committed relationships is one that leaves him lonely at times, but he accepts that drawback after watching two of his LEO brothers go through hell in their marriages. Why does he need that hassle? Itʼs difficult enough to find a good woman, let alone one who can tolerate being in a relationship with a detective. A law enforcement career can test even the best of couples. But Jasonʼs world is turned upside down when he literally runs into a red-haired spitfire. Her fiery attitude amuses him. Smitten with the entrancing woman, he decides to pursue.

Hannah canʼt believe that sheʼs attracted the attention of law enforcement in a different manner than she ever expected. She knows she shouldnʼt entertain the officerʼs blatant attraction, but Jason wonʼt take no for an answer. When she relents, deciding to cave to the determined detective, she certainly never expects to connect to him on a physical and emotional level.

Jasonʼs personal life is settling into place. Hannahʼs world is crumbling around her as she finds herself falling for a man who could put her in jail for a very long time, if he finds out her secret. Jason admits he may be more than just entranced with this gorgeous woman. Hannahʼs desperate and attempts to walk away from the life sheʼs led, until the mob catches up to her. Again.

What happens when Hannah tries to rid herself of the men who threaten her life by heisting the most secure jewelry store sheʼs ever attempted? What happens to the couple if Jason and his unit figure out who their thief really is? What happens when Jason questions everything he thought he knew, including his career? And what happens when Hannahʼs life is put in danger because of decisions made by Jason and his team?

*This is not a cliffhanger series. Each novel in the series can be read as a standalone.

christie review 4 stars

I was intrigued when I read the synopsis for Heist, and the book didn’t disappoint at all. It’s full of romance, steam, and mystery…three of my favorite things! Jason and his team of detectives are busy trying to nab a smart and crafty cat burglar who happens to be a woman. In fact, Jason can’t seem to get the beauty out of his mind…he has even had dreams of her. Granted, he doesn’t date, but he still can’t get her image out of his mind…until he meets the lovely Hannah. The two flirt, and she reluctantly agrees to go out with him, and neither one can deny their strong feelings for one another. Each one makes the other finally want someone to share their lives with. He wants her in his life, and she’s trying to run…but from who and from what?

Jason and Hannah were great together. Their romance is a whirlwind, and the two get serious pretty quick. When a couple falls in love instantly, that tends to turn me off, but not in this book. In Heist, it really worked. I loved the push and pull between the two. It’s nice for a guy to be pushing for a relationship and seeing the girl running scared. I liked that the tables were turned in this book. Jason is gorgeous, but he has a heart to match. I loved the relationship with his friends and his family, especially his mom, she’s awesome! Hannah comes across as a tough, street smart woman who does what she has to in order to survive, but underneath all that, she just a woman with a horrible childhood who just wants what most of us want, a loving husband, children, loving family and friends.

I liked that Heist was somewhat different than other romances out there right now. The story was fast paced and really kept my interest, and the way in which she developed her characters, not just the primary ones but the secondary ones as well, really drew me into the story. Jason and Hannah were a couple I really wanted to have their HEA, even though it was a rough journey to get there. I think Heist is a great start to the series. I cannot wait for the other men to get their stories, but I can’t decide which one I want to read first. Looking forward to more from Casey Clipper and her “Men of Law.”

Synopsis

GRACE
For me, growing up did not imply independence. My whole life has been paved before me like a well-traveled road. My twenty-first birthday signaled the end of my father’s rule, and the beginning of my husband’s—where I am expected to churn out infinite children with a smile.

As I stare at the oversized Temple doors, weighed down by more than yards of heavy, white lace, I do what I have never done before.

I make a decision for myself.

I decide to run.

TREAD
Being in a motorcycle club is in my DNA, as is the military requirement to join. I served, I fought, and I survived the crucible of grueling training and intense combat. I returned to my club with newfound respect for right, wrong, and the shades of gray that connect them.

By day, I work at Ronin Auto, pulling things apart, fixing the problem, and putting them back together.

Grace and her nonfunctioning, little sedan prove to be a hiccup in a well-oiled machine.

Because by night, I smuggle soft felons into Mexico.
With things heating up at the border, and a missing MC family member, the last thing I need is an innocent to worry about.
But something about Grace makes me want to take apart all of her pieces to figure out how someone so beautiful has never even been kissed.

Against my better judgment, I strike a bargain with the little, blue-eyed beauty, and it changes everything I thought I knew. About women. About the club. About the man I’ve become.

Excerpt

ronin

[roh-nin]

noun, plural ronin, ronins. Japanese History

  1. A samurai who no longer serves a daimyo, or feudal lord; a master-less Samurai.

My name is Tread, and I’m the lead mechanic for Ronin Auto. I’m also either one of the baddest motherfuckers you’ll ever meet, or the answer to your prayers. Just depends on which way your compass is pointing. Literally.

Most motorcycle clubs give you a handle when you prospect. My MC is different. We were given our handles at birth.

Our fathers founded the club after coming home from Panama, having participated in Operation Just Cause, to one members inherited land on New Mexico’s southern border.

After seeing what the cartels were capable of in Central America, the founding members saw the opportunity to help our country while helping themselves. They sent the mules back, but kept the drugs as their prize in a sometimes lethal game of hide and seek. They charged a king’s ransom to get wanted felons safely out of the country. By the time these men started having children, there was a legacy and a duty driving them to plan ahead.

Once the next generation was old enough to enlist we were on a bus out of town. Defended our nation’s freedom with pride. We went Airborne, Air Assault, and Special Forces, earning the pins and tabs that we would wear for the rest of our lives.

When our enlistments were up, we came back to our sleepy town with knowledge, honor, and righteous indignation. Arizona and Texas had walls, surveillance, and patrols, while the vast majority of New Mexico went unguarded still.

While we risked our lives and lost brothers to protect our people, illegals were walking onto U.S. soil with guns and drugs seemingly with the United States’ blessing. One hundred and eighty miles.Seven government run surveillance towers.

Ronin has controlled the border for over twenty years.

The second generation was born to this fight.

We became a dynasty.teasers

michele review 4 and a half stars

I really adored this book! I love reading MC stories and this one was added to my list of favorite MC books! Finding a book that was written by a husband and wife is always intriguing, it’s even more amazing when they do such an amazing job with the story!

Grace is from a very religious and uptight family and Tread is from a MC legacy. These two couldn’t be anymore different from the other, but when they’re together, their differences fade away. Their journey is one that keeps you begging for more. I wasn’t ready for the story to end, I wanted more of Grace and Tread, how could you not?

Grace and Tread have a long journey ahead of them. The choices they make could change the fate of their relationship. Will they be strong enough to make those tough decisions that lead to their happy ending?

I can’t wait to see what Brandace and Justin Morrow have in store for us in this series. I’m interested to see what happens with the other characters, and I wouldn’t mind see some more of Grace and Tread : ). If you’re looking for a great MC read that will keep you hooked, this is definitely a book for you!

Abou the author

Brandace and Justin Morrow have been through 10 years of the Army life, including three deployments and four children. They met in seventh grade, where they had scandalous hand-holding rendezvous in the gym before school. The courtship was brief however, only lasting a week, given his aversion to the telephone. Five years later he proposed to her on the steps of that middle school weeks before it would be demolished. Through the years, there have been laughter and tears, more time apart than together. Writing is an escape for them in an all too real world. Justin still hates the telephone.
