Dive into small-town secrets in this brand new steamy contemporary romance series from USA Today Bestselling Authors J.H. Croix & Ali Parker!

A small town can hide many secrets. It can also expose every secret you have. 

Serve & protect, that’s my life. I put my life on the line time and time again as a police officer. In days gone by, I held my head high in Cypress Creek.

Until my family got caught in the riptide of scandal created by my father. No matter what, I still can’t believe he’s guilty.

Niki Holmes never caught my attention before. She’s a librarian—smart and so quiet, she stays off my radar. The moment I take one look in her eyes, I’m lost. She calls to me on every level.

She’s also pure as the driven snow. My life is way too dark and twisted, yet she’s the light in my darkness.

By chance, she lands in the crosshairs of the investigation swirling around me. I’ll do anything to keep her safe, anything to make her mine.

*This is Book 1 of the Slow & Steady trilogy. There will be a cliffhanger and you will need to buy books 2 & 3 to continue the series.

    Great start for Sonny’s trilogy! This was an interesting read with lots of mystery and suspence, and of course romance, that kept me glued to my reader. Sonny’s investigation captured my attention right from the start and I can’t wait to see what happens next. I loved his protectiveness towards Niki. They are really great together with sizzling chemistry between them. Can’t wait for the next part! I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

    OMG! Great start to this series! I am excited to see the continuation of this storyline from previous series and for Sonny to get his own story! Excellent!!
  • A talented set of brothers!

    By Cheryl SDS
    This is part one of this book in the Shameless Southern Nights series and it features Sonny and Niki. Their meeting wasn’t under the best of circumstances and those same circumstances threw them together. Niki is a “speak your mind” type of person except when it comes to sex, then she becomes embarrassed and tongue tied. She’s a librarian and loves romance novels. She’s pretty awesome! Sunny is a good looking, sexy police officer who because of his father’s crimes, is always trying to prove himself worthy. These two mesh well together in and out of bed. These Lovett brothers are VERY talented! This book comes in three parts and this first part ends on a gasping cliffhanger. I’m super excited to read part two.
