Release Date: July 13, 2015
Genre: Erotic Romance

Talia Merchant dropped the idea of a forever kind of love after the first guy she loved stole not only her heart, but he also took her virginity….and then he took off. 

Now, busy with caring for her father and trying to save her teen shelter, Talia doesn’t need the messy entanglements that come with real relationships she doesn’t have time for. 

But after a mysterious benefactor saves her free clinic and reveals himself…everything changes. 

Donovan Lore doesn’t just want in Talia’s bed, which is the only thing she offers —he wants inside her heart and he doesn’t care what type of fight Talia puts up. He’s determined to break through every one of her walls until she’s pliable and needy in his hands and writhing beneath him. 

And Donovan always gets what he wants. 



ENTICE (The Affair, #1)


When the most difficult decision of Laurie Baker’s life needed to be made, she took off for a weekend alone to weigh her pros and cons and consider all her options.

What she didn’t expect was to run face first into one more complication her life didn’t need.

Distracting, sexy, and British, Liam Parker offered Laurie exactly what she needed when she was desperate for attention.

One night of pleasure.

She wanted it.

She craved it.

She took it.

And when the sunlight dawned and the lusty haze of one night of passion disappeared and reality revealed itself…

Laurie returned home knowing that everything she had once believed, everything she had once loved and desired, was about to be tossed upside down and shaken in a way she could never imagine.

EMBRACE (The Affair, #2)

Liam Parker crash landed into Laurie’s life when everything else was crumbling all around her. Her marriage and career were in pieces and her mind was left spinning.

But one touch from Liam, and Laurie could forget everything else around her.

She thought she had it all figured out.

As Laurie lost herself in Liam’s warm caresses and his commanding blue eyes, her husband refused to go quietly into the night. While Laurie fought to move on, it was James who was working his way back into her life, fighting for the marriage they had once held dear.

Forced to make choices she never imagined having to make, Laurie finally found herself on firm footing, knowing which way she was going to turn.

But then life threw her another curveball. And when she once again began picking up the pieces, learning how to survive and rebuild after everything exploded, there was only one man still there, one man who remained by her side, showing her that sometimes life isn’t about learning how to survive…

It’s about learning how to thrive.

Enflame was another scorcher by S.Layne. Dear lord, are these books hot and steamy!!! In this installment, we meet  Talia. She is a newish character (she is friends with Laurie Baker from the first 2 books).  Talia runs a center for at risk teens. She loves her job, but her life is imploding. Her dad had a stroke and is in a coma. His medical bills are piling up. Now the center is running out of funding and she needs a miracle. 

As if things can't get any worse, Donovan Lore walks back into her life. Donovan was the man who stole Talia's heart as well as her virginity 8 years ago. She was deeply in love with him, but his family and wealth made him walk away from her and do what they insisted. 

Donovan's nephew often visits the teen center. He is quite and hurting. He has yet to open himself up, but Talia knows there is something he is keeping inside. Donovan explains that he now has custody of his nephew. The entire family passed away in a car accident, all except one.

Donovan has a brilliant idea to hire Talia to help with his nephew. There maybe other motives there as well. Donovan knows he let the best thing in his life get away from him many years ago and now he decides he needs to win her back.

Did I mention I LOVE Donovan Lore!!! OMG he is sexy and completely alpha but also sweet and caring. In a spit second, he is willing to risk it all to make sure the 2 most important people in hid life are happy.

I love a second chance romance story. This was a fantastic one. Donovan has changed to something he is not, and Talia is killing to help him become the person he used to be. Loved every second of this book!!
