Strip Back brings you back to how the Naked Night’s began. This is Eric’s story. Back when life was a little less polished, and a whole lot harder.

Before there was Strip Teaser, there was Eric; manager and founder of the Naked Night’s male stripper troupe.

You wouldn’t think you’d be past it at 34, but that’s the position Eric found himself in, as well as newly single after finding his girlfriend in a compromising position.

Setting up the Naked Night’s wasn’t easy, it wasn’t fun, and it wasn’t without sleaze, but somehow he did it.

Strip Back is a humorous and steamy tale of one man’s journey to fulfill a dream. Not all male strippers are the same.

MICAH (Damage Control #1) COVER REVEAL

New Adult contemporary romance

by Jo Raven

Cover by: Jo Raven

RELEASE DATE: Dec 16, 2014 in the Red

Hot Alphas Boxset




There’s me: Micah Owens. Tattoo artist at Damage Control. No parents

or siblings. A past that still gives me nightmares.

And then there’s her: Evangeline, the girl who saved my life and haunts

my more pleasant dreams. Only she doesn’t know who I really am, and telling her might

well send her fleeing for the hills. She deserves better than a loser like me. She’s pretty.

She’s clever. She’s goddamn sexy and has a heart of gold.

Which is why I can’t tell her. A smile from her and I’ll do all I can to make

her mine – including pretending to be someone I’m not, someone worth having.

Isn’t love weird?


This is book 1 in the Damage Control series – a series parallel to Inked

Brotherhood, so that you’ll find the boys of Inked Brotherhood making appearances

here, too.

MICAH is a stand-alone work. No cliffhanger.

The expected publication date is Dec 16, 2014 in the Red Hot Alphas

Boxset, on all of your favorite e-book websites.

I ring the bell again, and when nothing happens, I check the piece of

paper. I’m at the right place. Maybe Rafe made a mistake? Or maybe Micah is not in.

Just when I’m about to turn and go, I think I hear footsteps and push the

paper into the pocket of my jacket. I lick my lips, my nervousness returning.

The lock creaks and the door slides open. “Yeah?” a hoarse male voice

says, and I catch a glimpse of a suspicious blue eye through the opening.

“Micah? It’s me, Ev.” Oh God, this sounds so lame. I shift my weight

again, my leg twinging. “I, um. I forgot my walking stick at the cafe…” I feel ridiculous

addressing his eye and not even seeing his whole face. “I was hoping maybe you

noticed and got it for me.”

“Ev?” His voice cracks. He turns away and coughs, and the worry gently

gnawing at my insides morphs into a voracious monster.

“Are you all right?” My voice goes high-pitched, and I wince. Calm down,

Ev. “That cold still hasn’t cleared up?”

“What?” He pulls the door open and leans against it, bracing one arm on

the frame. One bare, muscled arm. Attached to his muscular bare chest. “Oh, the cold,

yeah. I’m fine.”

Fine. “Why did you stay home if you’re fine?”

He blinks at me, a slow sweep of long lashes against high cheekbones,

and I have a moment of oh-crap-I’ve-gone-too-far panic.

But he doesn’t slam the door in my face as I think he might. “Rough

night,” he mutters. “Ocean said he’d cover for me at work, so I stayed home to sleep.”

Straightforward. Honest. A rough night. I want to ask what made it rough,

but I think I’ve already overstepped the boundaries of our… friendship? Acquaintance?


I drop my gaze from his face, and that’s a mistake. My mind blanks a little

as I realize he’s shirtless and barefoot, lounging in front of me in only a pair of gray low-
hung, draw-string pants. My gaze slides back up his long legs to his narrow hipbones

and a spectacular set of abs, complete with sexy divots forming a V line.

My mouth is honest-to-god watering. I tear my gaze off those lickable

abs only for it to be caught by his defined pecs and then his amused sky-blue eyes.

“Is there anything I can do for ya?” he drawls lazily, and I swear my

panties get wet at the raspy sound.

Well, wetter.

Which is kind of alarming. No guy has ever had such an effect on me

“What lies beneath my veiled perfection is the ugly truth—my truth, my reality, my destiny.”

Vivian Graham has an acceptance letter into Harvard, a badass tattoo, loyal friends, ties to marijuana, a penchant for Dunkin’ Donuts, and her pesky V-card.

Everyday she takes the Red Line to her job at The Green Pot in Boston while her friends enter the coveted, black iron gates to higher learning. The ramifications from a tragic accident have put her life on hold while time marches on for everyone around her.

After graduating from Harvard Law, Boston native, Oliver Konrad, moves to Portland to start his career and his life. Three years later, after a horrific discovery, he returns home to trade in his three-piece suit for leather work boots and his suburban home for a condo in Cambridge.

All he brought back to the East Coast was an aversion to pillows and secrets he keeps hidden behind a mysterious locked door. Oliver’s days are predictable and his nights are lonely until he meets Vivian on the subway. Her long raven hair, green eyes, and mile-long legs are achingly sexy, but the way she “innocently” fingers and licks her Boston Kreme doughnut can only be described in two words—complete torture.

When their paths cross at every turn, laughter is abundant, friendship is easy, and love is unintentional. However, their future seems improbable.

“I don’t need panties.”

“I disagree,” he says with his back to me as he signs for the purchase at the counter. He takes the bag in one hand and grabs my hand with his other. “Shall we?” He leads me out of the store.

A, I have plenty of panties. B, I told you I don’t wear them sometimes because it makes me feel sexy.”

He opens my door and sets the bag by my feet after I get in. Then he leans down and brings his face a breath away from mine as his hand slides up my leg. His thumb eases past my shorts. He stops and shakes his head as the pad of it meets my bare sex, no underwear.

My face contorts into a grimacing smile as my shoulders rise into a guilty shrug. He presses his thumb to my now wet center. My mouth relaxes as I suck in a breath and try to close the distance between our lips. He moves his head back just enough to deny me. He grins then moves his thumb a little higher. I moan as he rubs slow circles.

“How do you feel?” he whispers.

“G–good.” I grip the side of the seat and let my head fall back.

“What else?”

“Turned … on.” I close my eyes.

“What else?”

I tilt my hips up as he works me up so high I fear my own reaction to the impending fall.

“Oli …”

He speeds up, pressing his lips to my neck, and when his teeth graze over my sensitive skin I lose it.

“What. Else?” he whispers in my ear as the blinding sensation rips through me.

“Sexy … I feel … sexy.” I try to catch my breath while my head’s still spinning.

He kisses me hard then shuts my door.

I hate that I have no self-control to deny him giving me an orgasm while parked with the door open on a public street. Now he’s sporting a ridiculously smug grin as he pulls out into traffic.

“What was the point of that?” I break the silence.

“I wanted to prove that I make you feel sexy. Now that you know that, you can start wearing underwear.”

“What does it matter if no one else can see that I’m not wearing underwear?”

“First, some of the dresses you wear are awfully short. Second, I know you’re not wearing underwear and I don’t like walking around saluting everyone I pass.”


He shoots me a you-know-what-I-mean look.

“Whatever, you’re just being weird.”

“I’m being a guy.”

“That’s what I said. You’re being weird.”

Seven Sons (Book One) *See where it all began*

*Please note this book is dark romance and deals with serious themes including rape, violence and murder.*


This story unfolds over seven volumes approx. 25 – 30,000 words each.


My father was most certainly NOT an innocent man. As the leader of the Gypsy Brothers MC, he was guilty of many things. But he died for a crime that he didn’t commit, framed by an enemy within who then stole his club and everything he had ever worked to protect.


Including my innocence.


When Dornan Ross framed my father, he set into motion a series of events that could never be undone. My father was murdered by Dornan Ross and his sons when I was fifteen years old.


Before my father died, Dornan and his sons stole my innocence, branded my skin and in doing so, ensured that their lives would be prematurely cut short. That they would suffer.


I’ve just turned twenty-one, and I’m out for blood. I’m out for revenge.


But I didn’t expect to fall for Jase, the youngest brother in the club.


I didn’t expect that he would turn my world upside down, yank my heart out of my chest and ride away into the sunset with it.


Now, I’m faced with an impossible choice – Jase, or avenging my fathers death?

Beau Hale

She said that she was my best friend and then one day she wasn’t. Every day I live

with the visible scars, but it’s the invisible ones that hurt the most. They are a

constant reminder of everything I’ve lost as well as all the things that I’ll never have.

I should be over this by now, it’s been years, but I can’t escape the memories that

haunt me. Everyone around me is moving on with their life, so now I need to do the

same. Tennis brought me to Columbia University, and I am quickly proving that I

will not let anyone defeat me, past or present. I am in control now. Life has taught

me the hard way to remember that. But after all this time, I’m still searching for an

answer to the one question that is constantly burning in the back of my


Leila Starling

He said that he was my best friend, and then one day he wasn’t. It took one moment

to change my entire life. What I thought I knew became a lie and nothing was ever

the same. Slowly, I picked up the pieces and focused on what I could control…me. I

live in New York City and attend one of the world’s most prestigious fashion and

design schools. Day after day, I am getting closer and closer to making my dreams

come true. I did this all on my own and no one can ever take it from me. I know my

future is bright, even if my heart is destined to stay in the dark. The dull ache that

still lingers is my daily reminder to rely on no one but myself. Although, after all this

time, I still can’t help but wonder…why?

Displaying Beau Hale.jpg


Sweat drips from my hair, over my forehead, and down the side of my face. I’m in

the zone and nothing is going to pull me out of it.

I toss the ball high to serve and watch in slow motion as it flies over the net and Nate

responds. His feet are quick but mine are quicker. The muscles in my arms are tense.

They’re coiled so tight, just waiting to strike. Over and over the ball comes at me. Its

speed has to be close to one hundred and fifty miles an hour and all I can think is the

faster the better!

Tennis has always been my escape. My brother Drew swims and over the last few

years, I’ve noticed that Matt has picked up running but for me . . . I need the impact

to release the frustration, anger, and heartache that I am consumed with.

Dad was smart to put me in tennis. Although, I would not, and will not ever hit a

person, hitting a little yellow ball brings me great relief.
