Purgatory: n. A place or state of suffering. An intricate balance of heaven and hell. Passion and pain.

Surviving my mother's death was hard.
Surviving the next four years in foster care was even harder.
Surviving Blaze Abbott was going to be impossible.
In my life there were three inexplicable truths: My world revolved around my job at House of Hope and the five foster boys who lived there, the past was like a ghost always lurking in the shadows, and fairy tales were a crock of sh*t.
Then I met Blaze Abbott—the tall, dark and dangerous owner of the brewery that one of my boys just set on fire.
He ripped through the walls of my world and made himself a home. He pulled me close and became my shelter. I saw the light in him when all he felt was darkness. He made me feel like everything when I'd always been nothing.
Until it all crumbled.
With my job came certain obligations. Obligations that meant the boys came first, even if it meant lying to Blaze. Even if it meant risking my life for theirs.
With Blaze's last name came great responsibility, incredible power and an ultimatum that would set our world on fire no matter what choice he made.
It was never a matter of if Blaze was going to break my heart. It was only a matter of when.
It started with one week away from the pressures of a bedridden father and addict sister, and a chance to change lives- to change her life.

*Book One of three in the Sweet Southern Heat Series. May be read as a standalone.**
Makenna Taylor and Reid Landry are high school sweethearts. He was her first. Her only. They had life all planned out. Right down to the white picket fence and 2.5 kids. Then Reid joined the Marines, and from that day forward, life as Makenna knew it would never be the same.
She thought it was just another part time job waiting tables while she worked her way through college. She thought she had the fairytale. She thought she had imagined what happened that fateful night at the liquor store. She thought Cal Suppato was just another man. She was wrong.
Soon, she would learn that every family has secrets. Every stranger has a dark side. And love isn’t just a simple four letter word. From greed, to pride, to lust, Makenna is slowly introduced to the seductive world of sin. A world she’d only heard about in the whispers of her grandmother’s living room. A world many know about but simply refuse to see.
My life has been anything but simple lately. The past two months have come in like a hurricane, leaving me here: hanging on to a tree, waiting out the storm with the hope we're both still standing when it's all said and done. I've fallen for a heart that doesn't know mine yet. And I'm holding on to a heart that is slowly shattering.
I know what I have to do.
I know who I have to choose.
The question is: Will he still want me once he knows the truth?

Just when our life is starting to feel normal, my best friend's sister is kidnapped and Makenna could be next.

Hendrix Scott is a bad boy in a three-piece suit.
He’s every girl’s wet dream and every guy’s favorite drinking buddy.
He’s the guy you bring home to charm your Momma, then muffle your screams while he pounds you in the bathroom.
And he’s my best friend.
He shouldn’t be staring at me this way, looking at my mouth like he’s ready to devour it.
I shouldn’t be licking my lips, daring him to try it.
We’re a disaster waiting to happen. Now I’m stuck between giving into temptation or saving our friendship…
Even if it means letting him go.
And it shattered me.
Bennett Kane was every book boyfriend I'd ever read- and as a popular book blogger, I read a lot. Did I mention he's an author? The quiet, mysterious kind who prefers to remain a faceless enigma.
It all started with an email about my review of his debut release but quickly became so much more. I didn't need to know exactly who he was to know he was exactly who I needed. I didn't need to see his face to know he took my breath away. What we had went beyond romance. It was perfection. And when it came time for us to meet in person, nothing could've stolen the smile from my face...
Except the fact that my best friend met him first. And she fell head over heels in love with him.
So, I did what any decent friend would do.
I let him go.
Life moved on.
We moved on.
Or so I thought...
Until now. Bennett Kane just walked through the door of my coffee shop with a new story to tell- and he's made sure this is one I won't ever forget.
**Kane is Book Two of the Sweet Southern Heat series. It is recommended that you read book one, Sterling, first but Kane may be read as a standalone.**
