SERIES SPOTLIGHT: Wicked Men of Rockland Series by @KarynGerrard @Crimson_Romance #Contemp

It looks as though I am planning at least 4 books in this series. Already have the third book half-written. Working title is His Wicked Cold Heart.

The first book in the series is The Wicked Bad, Released April 13 2013 under Crimson Romance's Spicy line (yes, its hot. Erotic)

BLURB: Nick Crocetti is an imposing figure in black leather riding his motorcycle about the town of Rockland. Owner of a bar, The Chief, whispers of criminal dealings and a murky past swirl around him. Dark and brooding, Nick is "the wicked bad" in looks and demeanor.

 Veronica Barnes, leaving a husband from a disastrously quick Las Vegas marriage and her high-paying consulting job, returns home after ten years to follow a lifelong dream and open her own bakery. Despite the mutual physical attraction - and a shared past - Nick and Veronica are wary of each other and have protective fences around their hearts.

 Can they break down the barriers of past heartbreak, or is Veronica just a good girl who longs to rub against "the wicked bad"?

Rockland is a fictional blue-collar city on the shores of the Chesapeake, in the state of Maryland, the population of around 120,000, About an hour's drive south of Baltimore. Lives and loves intersect in this contemporary series, good and bad.  

In The Wicked Bad, we meet Nick Crocetti. Always a rebel right from high school, Nick rides a motorcycle and keeps to himself. He existed on the outer fringes of criminal life, but soon moves back to Rockland and opens his own bar, The Chief.

When Veronica moves back to town shortly thereafter, he can't stay away from her, as he had a secret crush on her in high school.

Sparks fly, but he doesn't want anything permanent with any woman. He's not the settling down type. He is—the wicked bad.

 Veronica 'Ronnie" Barnes moves back to Rockland after living in California for years.

After a failed, brief first marriage, she's ready to start anew and does so by fulfilling her dream of owning and operating a bakery.

But her world is soon turned on its axis when Nick Crocetti saunters into her bakery one afternoon.

Hot sex with Nick? Yes. Because Veronica longs to rub against—the wicked bad.

Book Two in the Wicked Men of Rockland series HIS WICKED CELTIC KISS was released October 20, 2014 (sensual heat) under Crimson Romance's Contemporary line.

BLURB: It took just one teasing wink and a sexy Irish lilt from bad boy Lorcan Byrne to turn Julie Denison’s world upside down. The problem is, he’s only in town for six months, and happily ever after isn't in this world traveler’s vocabulary.

Julie’s worked hard to get her life in a good place—dropping substantial weight and getting a great job at her friend’s bakery. But this handsome charmer is just as tempting as any of the decadent pastries she sells, and she can’t resist his advances for long. Julie fully expects Lorcan to break her heart—but she’s planning to enjoy every second she can of their explosive chemistry.

After years of danger as a soldier and a spy, Lorcan fled to tiny Rockland, Maryland for some boring downtime. He didn't count on meeting someone who could ignite his libido and soothe his damaged heart, and their passion soon leads to deeper feelings. But can Julie convince Lorcan he has more to offer her than just his wicked Celtic kiss?
