"The world was on fire and no one could save me but you.
It's strange what desire will make foolish people do...
What a wicked game...
- Chris Isaak
I recently stumbled upon the delightfully naughty writing(s) of Avril Ashton - just in time for summer. Hey, a girl can't read academic and intellectual tombs all of the time right? I have all 11 of her books and am eagerly awaiting her next. Fair warning: Avril's stuff is hott! I mean ashpalt buckling erotic hott!! Okay, now that we've got the fair warning over, let's get to the good ;-}
A Wicked Ride (The Wicked: Book 1) by Avril Ashton
Sasha Forde has hung up her thieving stilettos, but a visit from a mobster sends her back to her old life. In order to save her family - and herself - from jail, she must steal evidence hidden in a lawyer's office. She sets out to do what she considers a simple B&E, but someone else has arrived first. And her holds her life in his tattooed hands. Not for long.
Niko Davaris is all about revenge on the man who tried to kill him. The evidence he stole is the first step in that direction. He's not thrilled to wake up with a gun to his head. The woman on the other end is cocky, smug and too damn hot for her own good. He wants her, she wants the evidence. When she takes it and disappears, he gives chase. Battle lines are blurred as they give in to temptation, but on a ride like this, someone has to come out on top. Who will it be?
See what I mean? I think that you're gonna love this! Of course, A Wicked Ride is the 1st book in an ongoing series, aptly named - The Wicked (all available at All Romance and Amazon Kindle). The series in order:
Book 1: A Wicked Ride
Book 2: A Wicked Night
Book 3: In Wicked Chains
Book 4: Wicked in His Touch (*forthcoming)
Let me know what you think and happy reading!
Vivre! Rire! Aimer!
