Coming Soon from 1001 Dark Nights - The Lexi Blake Crossover Collection
A Letter From Lexi...
Who doesn’t love a crossover? I know that for me there’s always been something magical about two fictional words blending and meeting in a totally unexpected way. For years the only medium that has truly done it well and often is comic books. Superman vs. Batman in a fight to the finish. Marvel’s Infinite Universe. There’s something about two crazy worlds coming together that almost makes them feel more real. Like there’s this brilliant universe filled with fictional characters and they can meet and talk, and sometimes they can fall in love.
I’m a geek. I go a little crazy when Thor meets up with Iron Man or The Flash and Arrow team up.
So why wouldn’t we do it in Romanceland?
There are ways out there. A writer can write in another author’s world, giving you her take on it. There’s some brilliant fanfiction out there, but I wanted something different. I wanted to take my time and gradually introduce these characters from other worlds, bring you in slowly so you don’t even realize what I’m doing. So you think this is McKay-Taggart, nothing odd here. Except there is…
Welcome to the Lexi Blake Crossover Collection.
Over the next year, I will be introducing you to five new characters and five new and brilliant worlds. By the time April of next year comes around, if I’ve done my job, you’ll know and love these characters – sisters from another mister, brothers from another mother. Let me tell you about the worlds I want to take you to.
J. Kenner’s glitzy and beautiful world where the wealthy and powerful live and fall in love. Join Nikki and Damien’s world filled with friends and lovers. Julie writes sexy and amazing heroes and heroines you’ll fall in love with!
Bodyguard Bad Boys
Carly Philips is one of my personal favorites. She’s flirty and fun and this world will transport you to a place where hot men are willing to give up everything to save their women. With sizzling sex scenes and plots that you keep you guessing, you won’t want to leave this world.
Return to Me
Corinne Michaels writes beautifully broken characters. Cowboys and country singers, real people living real lives, needing real love. You can’t go wrong with her deeply emotional stories.
Delta Force Heroes
Susan Stoker’s world is frentic and frenzied. Filled with danger and suspense and a surprising number of kidnappings, her Delta Force team will make your heart pound even as you fall for military heroes.
What can I say about Larissa Ione? A hell of a lot. She’s one of the best writers working in paranormal today and that’s why I was so thrilled to work with her. Demonica is a harsh world where opposites attract and even a demon can find true love.
And all these worlds will blend with mine. I have no idea why these five fabulous women said yes to me. It’s a little insane, but I’m going to take it. Six New York Times bestsellers bringing you a world unlike any you’ve seen.
How will Ian Taggart handle it? Likely with sarcasm and a gun. Come with me on this crazy journey. This train will be stopping at some fabulous destinations.
A Masters & Mercenaries Novel by Lexi Blake
Remy Guidry doesn’t do relationships. He tried the marriage thing once, back in Louisiana, and learned the hard way that all he really needs in life is a cold beer, some good friends, and the occasional hookup. His job as a bodyguard with McKay-Taggart gives him purpose and lovely perks, like access to Sanctum. The last thing he needs in his life is a woman with stars in her eyes and babies in her future.
Lisa Daley’s life is finally going in the right direction. She has finally graduated from college after years of putting herself through school. She’s got a new job at an accounting firm and she’s finished her Sanctum training. Finally on her own and having fun, her life seems pretty perfect. Except she’s lonely and the one man she wants won’t give her a second look.
There is one other little glitch. Apparently, her new firm is really a front for the mob and now they want her dead. Assassins can really ruin a fun girls’ night out.
Suddenly strapped to the very same six-foot-five-inch hunk of a bodyguard who makes her heart pound, Lisa can’t decide if this situation is a blessing or a curse. As the mob closes in, Remy takes his tempting new charge back to the safest place he knows — his home in the bayou.
Surrounded by his past, he can’t help wondering if Lisa is his future. To answer that question, he just has to keep her alive.
McKay-Taggart operative Riley Blade has no intention of returning to Los Angeles after his brief stint as a consultant on mega-star Lyle Tarpin’s latest action flick. Not even for Natasha Black, Tarpin’s sexy personal assistant who’d gotten under his skin. Why would he, when Tasha made it absolutely clear that—attraction or not—she wasn’t interested a fling, much less a relationship.
But when Riley learns that someone is stalking her, he races to her side. Determined to not only protect her, but to convince her that—no matter what has hurt her in the past—he’s not only going to fight for her, he’s going to win her heart. Forever.
Talia Shaw has spent her adult life working as a scientist for a big pharmaceutical company. She’s focused on saving lives, not living life. When her lab is broken into and it's clear someone is after the top secret formula she’s working on, she turns to the one man she can trust. The same irresistible man she turned away years earlier because she was too young and naive to believe a sexy guy like Shane Landon could want her.
Shane Landon’s bodyguard work for McKay-Taggart is the one thing that brings him satisfaction in his life. Relationships come in second to the job. Always. Then little brainiac Talia Shaw shows up in his backyard, frightened and on the run, and his world is turned upside down. And not just because she’s found him naked in his outdoor shower, either.
With Talia's life in danger, Shane has to get her out of town and to her eccentric, hermit mentor who has the final piece of the formula she’s been working on, while keeping her safe from the men who are after her. Guarding Talia's body certainly isn't any hardship, but he never expects to fall hard and fast for his best friend’s little sister and the only woman who’s ever really gotten under his skin.
