A steamy, emotional romance from USA Today Bestselling Author Alexa Padgett.

Two strong, battle-scarred people grapple with how to make a relationship work in the forceful first Austin After Dark contemporary.” ~ BookLife

Remembering the music I love… lets me forget a past that haunts me.

I thought realizing my dream of country music stardom would chase away the ghosts of the past. But I didn’t understand how the horrors of war would imprint their scars on my heart… leaving me a shadow of the man I used to be.

Haunted by regret, filled with a rage I can't control, I destroy my favorite guitar. 

A J. Olsen original. The only instrument that allows my fingers to caress my music into creation.

Now, I need a new one, and in order to get it fast, I have to work with her--Jenna. She stirs something deep inside me. Something I haven’t felt in years.

When I stare into her breathtaking eyes for the first time, I see struggles that echo my own. The kind of torment that colors a woman’s soul. But I’m drawn to her--I just can’t stay away.  

As our emotions start to blossom, creating a magic that rivals the music, Jenna’s dangerous ex reappears to play a reckless game. Between his lust for revenge and the unreasonable demands of my record label, we can’t catch our big break.  

And unless we can both heal the wounds that remain shuttered in darkness, we’ll lose everything.

A poignant and provocative romance from USA Today Bestselling Author Alexa Padgett. 

She aches to make her own music…but I burn for the perfect revenge.

I never thought a late-night Scrabble game would blow my world apart. Moving letters. Keeping score. Swapping words and desire with a mystery woman who makes me fantasize of things I have no right thinking.

I can’t get involved.

I won’t. 

Despite the pull of her lush curves and the electric crackle of chemistry between us, I resist. Regan has aroused something far more desirable than revenge, and I can’t get sidetracked by my pesky feelings. Not now that my plot to pay back my best friend’s heartbreaking betrayal finally snaps into place, and I vowed years ago to see it to the bitter end.

And that means no emotional entanglements. Even for her.

Until a vindictive smear campaign aimed at Regan is followed by a bombshell that blows my world apart…and our fragile relationship crumbles.

Unless we both go all in and trust each other, we won’t be able to pick up the pieces.

Another sultry New Adult Romance from USA Today Bestseller Author Alexa Padgett.

From the moment I see Kate Grace, I can't wait to find out if what they say about redheads is true... Not only are her wild ringlets entrancing, she's sweet and sassy, with slower, sexier curves than a Texas back road. 

Too bad she's also country music star Camden Grace's baby sister. Camden holds my chance at a comeback in his hands, and he doesn’t want me--or my bad attitude--anywhere near Kate. 

I don’t have time for all these thoughts about Kate, anyway. I must focus on my son’s future. I failed him once, but I'll do anything to prove how much I love him. Anything.

Even if that means giving up my dreams of a music career and another chance to kiss Kate's soft, luscious lips. Ike comes first. I promised, and my word is my vow. I’ll never, ever break it. 

Yes, even if I have to give up a chance to work with the biggest names in the music industry, and even if I have to walk away from the only woman I’ll ever love…
