Mace: A Stepbrother Romance
by Claire Donovan
The death of her father and the collapse of his fortune forces innocent pre-med student Alyssa Carlyle into the erotic world of high class escorting. She soon discovers her mysterious boss is also her estranged and provocative stepbrother Mace. Neither can deny their shameless desire and steamy passion, but can they develop the trust and commitment needed to escape the dark world they’ve entered?
*** Mace ***
I own an exclusive escort service for high-end girls and high-rollers. I’m having my most profitable year ever. My life is fan-f**king-tastic.
Until the day my smoking hot stepsister, Alyssa, waltzes in for a job and strips off her clothes.
What the hell is she doing here, saying her name is Carly Olson? How the hell could this happen? My situation was perfect until she showed up. Now I’m entirely obsessed with her. Night and day, I can’t get her out of my mind. I want her or no woman at all.
*** Alyssa ***
I’m a hardworking, studious good girl, an honors student at Princeton.
My sexy-as-hell stepbrother, Mace, is an ass. A cocky, skirt-chasing, testosterone driven MMA fighter who makes millions doing things he won’t talk about. He walked out of my life on the day of our parents’ funeral, and he can just stay out. I definitely don’t want to let him back in.
So, when I’m drowning in student debt and about to lose my scholarship, why do I find myself asking for his help? And why am I so willing to follow him into this underworld? My virginity is a valuable commodity and I’ve given him control of it. I only hope he realizes he wants me for himself, before he auctions my virtue away to a wealthy stranger.
***HEA and no cheating ***

Mace is struggling with his own issues: sadness over the loss of his mother and anger toward Alyssa’s father, whom he suspects killed his mother. He trains and fights in mixed martial arts, to help him subdue his inner demons and keep hidden his dead stepfather’s dark secrets. Mace needs to learn forgiveness before he’s ready for a serious relationship.
Mace is set in urban Trenton, NJ, and is full of racy adventure and swift B-movie noir action. The plot is reminiscent of romantic mystery movies and dime store detective thrillers. The story is full of twists, betrayals and suspense. The gambling and poker casinos of Las Vegas and Atlantic City, and the Jersey vacation beaches provide backdrop. Full of fun and humor, the story is seasoned with salty exchanges between the warring sexes. This new adult series is a romantic sexy saga worth reading.
