Twenty-three year old Dimitri has to do what he is told—literally. Controlled by a paranormal bond, he is forced to use his wits to fulfill unlimited deadly wishes made by multimillionaire Karl Walker. 
Dimitri has no idea how his family line became trapped in the genie bond. He just knows resisting has never ended well. When he meets Syd—assertive, sexy, intelligent Syd—he becomes determined to make her his own. Except Karl has ensured Dimitri can’t tell anyone about the bond, and Syd isn’t the type to tolerate secrets. 
Then Karl starts sending him away on back-to-back wishes. Unable to balance love and lies, Dimitri sets out to uncover Karl’s ultimate plan and put it to an end. But doing so forces him to confront the one wish he never saw coming—the wish that will destroy him.

Synopsis
Eva doesn’t want him, but she needs him. Julian doesn’t need anyone, but he wants her. Evangeline Andrews is sassy and feisty, or at least she was – before; before she left New Jersey. She’s a different person in Dublin, and she’s trying hard to be normal here. But the office bitch, her nymphomaniac best friend, and the nice-guy-she’s-just-not-sure-about all threaten to complicate things. The social event of the year is looming. Everyone who’s anyone in the office will be at the masquerade ball. And Eva is invited, well instructed, to attend by her mysterious boss – or else! But she can’t go alone.Julian Harte is a rich, powerful, Irish alpha with a fascination for games. He’s used to getting what he wants, at all costs. When Julian offers his services as an escort, Eva is about to learn the game is complicated and he doesn’t do loosing. Will Eva’s thick skin be enough to protect her when all the masks come down, or is she about to learn she’s not the only one wearing more than one mask? Let the games begin…   *** Author note *** Brooke Harris is an Irish author, Rules of Harte is set in Dublin, with a cast of primarily Irish characters. It is not a violent book but there are questionable amounts of swearing, native sexual slang and explicit sex scenes. Julian Harte is Irish, he thinks Irish, acts Irish and says F*ck a lot. Eva Andrews is not. But she still says f*ck a lot. Please do not read if you are under 17. Thanks so much for taking the time to read this note xx

Excerpt

A phone number appeared on the screen. Nothing more. No picture, or bio or even a name. Eva tutted angrily. She hated clogged up, messy websites as much as the next person but this minimalist crap was ridiculous. She wasn’t about to phone some random stranger. The site was a waste of her time, and just made her feel more pathetic. She was about to shut the browser when an instant message popped up.Julian: Curious?’- Eva’s struggled to breathe. She was getting dizzy from her eyes darting around the office frantically, and the inside of her lip couldn’t handle much more chewing. Julian: A little shy, are we?’- Her fingers hovered over her keyboard. She wanted to reply; she just didn’t know what to say, or who she was saying it to.Julian: Would you like my help?’- Eva135: Do you always ask so many questions?’-Julian: Do you?’- Eva135: I’ve only asked one.’- Julian: Is there more you would like to ask?’- Eva pushed her chair back from her desk and tapped her pen on her knee. Well of course, she had questions. She had loads. Did this guy just wait around all day for women to click on his website? Who was he? How the hell does someone become an escort? Why the hell does someone become an escort? Eva135: Ok. What’s your name?’- Julian: Julian, I thought that was obvious.’- Evangeline’s cheeks flushed. Even cyber conversation made her look stupid. Eva135: How old are you?’-Julian: Don’t be greedy, Evangeline. You’ve had your question. It’s my turn. Why do you want an escort?’- Eva135: How do you know my name?’- Julian: Again, Evangeline, if you would like an answer to your question you must answer mine first.’-Eva stood up. Did he seriously expect an answer? She paced the floor dramatically and was only drawn back to her screen by the subtle tone of a new message. Julian:Are you still there?’- Eva135: Yes.’- Julian: Good. I thought you had run away.Are you going to answer my question?’- Eva135: I just answered one of your questions. It’s my turn again. Aren’t those the rules?’- Julian: Feisty. I like that. And you understand rules. I like that even more. Okay, Evangeline let’s play by some rules.’-Eva135: How do you know my name?’- Julian: Your user name, it’s not hard to work out. Really, Evangeline. I find it hard to believe you don’t have a better question than that. I like you so I’m going to let you take another turn.’- Eva135: Isn’t that against the rules?’- Julian: My game, my rules. You’ve just used another question. It’s my turn.-‘ Evangeline poked herself in the knee with her pen. Damn he was good at this, but she had studied psychology for three years, there was no way she was going to let him beat her. She was ready to up her game. Eva135: Okay, Julian. Your question.’- Julian: Why do you want an escort?’- Eva135: I don’t know if I do…’-Julian is offline.

Book Synopsis


He could very well be the perfect ex... Isaac McKnight has had enough loss in his life to know never to take anything for granted. So when the all but perfectly-imperfect-woman-for-him ends things with him out of the blue, it’s Isaac that doesn’t let their friendship get ruined in the process. Now a year later, whether it’s at his gym or her brewpub, or the dog park they visit every weekend—though neither of them own a dog—he and Xoey find themselves together more often than not, with a relationship that’s stronger than ever. The fact that he’s somehow taken a wrong turn and crossed over into ‘buddy zone’ galaxy with its dangerous proximity to watch-me-marry-another-guy abyss, however, doesn’t occur to him until Xoey tells him she’s on the hunt for the perfect man…who’s not him. Oh hell no. Isaac is done waiting for the crazy woman to come to her senses. This time, he’s not letting her just up and run from what’s always been between them. But she’s looking for the perfect oh.History has taught Xoey Kerrigan that sometimes, it’s Prince Charming who vanishes without a trace. And fairy tale love? Highly overrated. But the connection that results in a real and perfect ‘oh?’ That a couple just can’t fake. She’s tried. So when Xoey realizes she’s had waaay more exes than ohs in her love life, she creates a match-finding formula for the perfect man by analyzing the men responsible for her three most epic ohs. They were, after all, her best relationships. Heck, one has become a friendship she’d never jeopardize for anything. Which is precisely why she can’t tell Isaac that one-third of her genius little man-quation is all about him—well, more than a third if Xoey were being honest with herself…which she’s not. Because full honesty would require thinking not just about how perfect Isaac really is, but also about how perfect the fourth epic oh she’s kept buried deep in her past once was. An easy enough thing to keep ignoring…until her past isn’t past tense anymore.

Book Synopsis

Grady Donovan is used to folks questioning why he never went pro. Sharing genes with a family of NFL greats, it should’ve been the natural decision. But instead, he chose coaching. Back when he was getting hit with hard life lessons for all his wrong choices, it was the first one he’d made that had felt so right. Moving to the oddball town of Cactus Creek is now officially the second. Here, folks care less about his name and more what the auto shop teacher—daughter of the coach he’s replacing—thinks of him. It’s refreshingly different. She’s refreshingly different. Sienna is nothing like the can-I-meet-your-brothers model wannabes or the delicate wounded birds Grady’s friends say flock to him by his own doing. She’s an opinionated powder keg with mind-melting curves and a garage full of tools he’s sure she’d like to hurl at him half the time. And lately, it seems all their heated debates over her old school defense being no match for his high-scoring offense is starting to mean something a whole lot different in his head… Sienna Whitman is used toher dad keeping her on the sidelines. Being a veritable coaching legend, he could’ve recommended her as an assistant coach to his successor. But no, Sienna’s got that pesky lack of a Y chromosome on her resume. So here she is, back for another year as overqualified team statistician. Secretly feeding field plays to her coaching buddies through her phone. It wouldn’t be half bad if not for the new head coach continuously pushing her buttons at every turn. Mr. All American good looks with that ‘new school offense’ of his—a.k.a. the take-the-sport-out-of-the-game mentality—is driving her crazy. And not just because he’s under the very mistaken notion that she’s a sex addict in rehab, thanks to the opposite-of-quick thinking by her partners in crime on the field—seriously, if only her Bluetooth had a kill function. His genuine concern over her ‘addiction’ is…unexpected, as is the unprecedented realization that just being around Grady makes Sienna want that rehab center’s number for real. On speed dial. Hell,it’s going to be a long season.

Synopsis

Nia and Conn’s wedding will be fairytale perfect…if their siblings can get along. Free-spirited, anti-establishment Sara has always been on the outside of her family’s fairytale mold. Now she’s being forced smack into the middle of it at her sister Nia’s wedding. Alongside the cocky and annoyingly sexy best man—Conn’s cop brother.Curtis doesn’t buy in to organized romance and fairytales. But for his brother, he’ll throw on a tux and fake it for a few hours. His flak vest would have been a better choice around the maid of honor. He should have brought his handcuffs too, because somebody needs to restrain the dark-haired spitfire—and he’s just the man for the job. One night to indulge the spark between them, then goodbye—that was the agreement. Curtis isn’t looking for a relationship and he sure doesn’t want a troublemaker for a girlfriend. The last thing Sara needs in her daily life is a cop looking over her shoulder, no matter how hot he is. But giving in to their chemistry is much more fun than giving it up…  

Excerpt

It’d been a year and a half since fate—or more specifically, car trouble and bad weather—had brought Conn and Nia together. In that time, there’d been several occasions where the Lawler and Chambers families had mixed. Sara hadn’t attended. Not even Christmas dinner at her sister’s house. Sara’s family didn’t make excuses on her behalf, nor did they seem upset. Instead they affectionately tossed around terms such as “free-spirited”and “nonconformist.” Well, the free-spirited nonconformist better walk through the church doors, stat. Anybody who got in the way of his brother’s happiness, especially this weekend, would be answering to Curtis. Badge and handcuffs not required for that job. “You didn’t bring a date for the wedding,”Conn said, interrupting Curtis’internal threats toward a woman he’d never met. “Nah. With the wedding all the way up here, that would’ve meant spending an entire weekend together at the various family-bonding events. An invitation like that tends to send the ‘this is serious’message.” Conn stretched his arms along the top of the church pew while nodding. “Gotcha.” “Yeah.”Not that Curtis had anything against commitment. The right woman just hadn’t come along. Because he purposely kept busy with the wrong ones. “Since you’re flying solo this weekend, I need a favor.”“Spending tomorrow in a monkey suit isn’t favor enough? Especially after that overly friendly tailor at the tuxedo-rental place got a little too much enjoyment out of measuring my inseam?” One of Conn’s patented grins took over his face. “Did you check the pockets yet? He might’ve slipped you his number.” “Whatever, man.”He gave Conn a friendly shot to the ribs. “How you, the totally unavailable groom-to-be, got the hot Asian chick to measure you while I got stuck with the grabby-hands guy, I have no fucking idea.” “Was she hot? I didn’t notice.” Oh man, he was serious. Love had put blinders on his brother. Big time. “Ten out of ten,”Curtis said, shaking his head. “So, what’s the favor?” Conn’s smile thinned. “Keep an eye on Sara. Make sure she doesn’t cause any trouble.” “Babysitting detail.” “Yeah.” “Is she that bad?” “I hope not,”Conn said as the church’s front door slammed and all heads turned toward the entryway. Call him fucked-up, but one look at the dark-haired beauty who’d just strutted into the building, and Curtis kinda hoped Sara lived up to her troublemaker reputation.

But at some point during her three years away, Creepy Kensington managed to evolve into a sizzling hot star running back with smoldering hazel eyes. The attraction is undeniable. The temptation is irresistible. And soon they’re sharing more than just an address. But with another life lost in a deliberately set blaze, Sara’s trust is faltering.

Excerpt:

When you love someone, you don’t want to believe the worst about them. No matter how much evidence is dropped in your lap, no matter how many smoking guns you pick up off the floor, you keep coming up with excuses and telling yourself there’s a logical explanation for everything. That what you’re stumbling over is a trail of random coincidences. And all the flashing signs, they just point to a road that leads nowhere.
You trust your instincts. You blindly follow your heart. Because to believe anything else will shatter it.
But at some point reality sets in and you need answers. You want to know what’s at the end of that road.
I’d like to be able to say with a hundred percent certainty that I had no misgivings. That I wasn’t waiting impatiently for him to get home that night just so I could demand that he put those nagging doubts to rest.
I’d like to.
But I can’t.
So when Rob walked in the house sometime after nine, I was waiting – not to interrogate him but simply to gauge his reaction to one very simple question. I barely gave him time to get in the door. He had just closed it behind him and was resetting the alarm when I cornered him.
“Where did you go Saturday night?”
I was prepared for surprise, possibly even annoyance, but not for the strangely deadpan look he gave me. I’d sprung this on him out of the blue, and yet he seemed somehow to have expected it.
“Where’s this coming from?” Unwrapping his scarf, he hung it with his coat on the hook by the door, then leaned down to untie his boots before kicking them off.
“I just want to know. You never told me where you were that night.”
“I see. And now all of a sudden it’s imperative that you know.”
“That’s right. All of a sudden it is.” The cold air he’d brought in with him chilled me through my cotton nightgown and I wrapped myself in my arms, shivering.
Without speaking, Rob strolled over to the fireplace and opened the damper. I watched him suspiciously as he started stacking split logs on the grate.
“What are you doing?”
“Building a fire. Isn’t that what I’m supposed to be good at? Starting fires?”

About the Author

photo (1)
When I was just thirteen, I knew without a shadow of a doubt that one day I’d become a published author. Unfortunately, scribbling cartoons and silly stories during class instead of devoting 100% attention toblahblah-isn’t-algebra-exciting-blahblah was basically frowned upon. When I was fourteen, I made the decision to become the next Madonna. There was only one problem with that. Nobody wanted to listen to an off-key voice that sent the family dog running for cover. At fifteen, I was positive that acting was my future. A case of slack-jawed stage fright erased that particular ambition from the list. At sixteen, ballet became my new passion…until the revelation that truly dedicated ballerinas aren’t allowed to stuff their faces with pizza and cupcakes. Oh, and they also don’t typically possess a tendency to trip over their own feet. Graceful, I am not. Now, some years later – never mind how many – I’ve come full circle only to rediscover a lost love in writing. But now I use a computer instead of college ruled notebook paper – and thankfully there’s no threat of detention!
