Today we are thrilled to be sharing M. Malone & Nana Malone’s first book in the Brazen Duet, BRAZEN
Wham, bam, thank you ma’am? That’s my motto.
There’s no room in my life for anything more complicated than a one-night stand. I’m a bodyguard. It’s easier to put my life on the line when there’s no one worrying if I’ll make it home for dinner.
But then the one woman who made me want more waltzes back into my life needing my protection.
Despite our explosive chemistry, we can’t go there again. What happened in Vegas, has to stay in Vegas.
Except the marriage vows neither of us remember.

The heir apparent to one of the world’s largest perfume companies, Hailey is driven to prove to the world that she has what it takes. Having locked herself and her heart away since one amazing weekend in Vegas years earlier; she has no time for frivolous activities or time wasting. If only whoever is trying to kill her could get the memo, Hailey would be super happy.
‘All kinds of a man. He’d been the only marker I really had for what a man was. But there was something about him now. Something even more self-assured.’
Oskar Mueller team player and part of Blake Security, (yes, The Blake Security from the Winston Isles. Yummy Alpha Men) is front and centre in the epic story that is Hailey and her deadly shadows. Only they have a history and that history is far more complex than anyone, especially for the reader, understands.
The hurt is still very real for one and yet both are still forcibly attracted to one another. Magnets would have an easier time staying away from each other than these two. As is always in the case for these writers, there are so many questions that need answering. Why is Hailey’s mother the way she is? Why is her father so protective and secretive? Why does Hailey’s own brother loathe her so much? And who in the heck would want to kill a lab geek who just mixes up perfumes?
Oskar and Hailey are so very different. Different in every way that counts, doesn’t matter though, not to them because they love each other fiercely and when the walls come-a-tumbling down, their simply eyewitnesses to the chemistry their bodies have been fuelling ever since they last were together. Our major players aren’t the only ones feeling the lust chemical; I just wonder how that one will work out.
‘…I inhaled. Sandalwood. I sighed and immediately relaxed. I love that smell. The moment I was wrapped in his arms, I felt like I was exactly where I belonged.’
I have always respected how these authors create families. It rarely comes from people who share blood. As we move further into the twenty-first-century, family has taken on such a broader term and authors the world over are reflecting real society into their books. This makes me happy and content to read such books. Family and lives are no longer just fluid, no two people are ever the same (even identical twins are different).
One more comment about this book though, what the heck was that cliffhanger ladies? Do you know what you’re doing to me? Thank goodness, the next one is out very soon. Jeez. I have come to the most obvious conclusions: either of these two cannot pen a book and not have me clinging onto the edge of my seat and suffering from awful palpitations. Wick authors, evil, devilish. Please, do not ever change! Kudos on another great one.
How the hell did I, the perpetual bachelor, end up accidentally married in Vegas—to my client?
As soon as I find out who’s trying to kill her, we’ll get a quickie divorce…or will we? I was never supposed to be married. I was never supposed to fall in love. I was never supposed to put her in danger.
But now that she’s back in my life I wonder if some things shouldn’t stay in Vegas.
To keep her I’ll have to fight for her. Good thing I’m brazen enough to do just that.

USA Today bestselling author Nana Malone‘s love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense novel she “borrowed” from her cousin.
It was a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana, and Nana was a precocious thirteen. She’s been in love with kick-butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination constantly channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.
While she waits for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as brazen and kick-butt as she thinks she is.
