DOUBLE the thrill, double the action, and even more heated passion in this second installment of the Mercenaries series. What a crazy ride Lily, Marc and Kingsley gave us, even though this second time around they found themselves all Out Of Plans…


This second book starts after Marc left Lily heart broken by that beautiful yet cruel letter, saying goodbye. She finds herself lost and mad for falling for him. Lily is very strong so she only allows herself a few tears before forming a new strategy. With renewed purpose she goes back to her revenge plans; to find and eliminate from this world , the man that took her sister’s life, and there is only one person who can help her get to him, Kingsley…

Kingsley welcomes Lily with open arms and they begin training and working together right away. Their dynamic is amazing. They have fun training and they balance each other perfectly, every time they are out on a job.

Six months after Kingsley took her in, she sees Marc again and it turns out he has very valuable information that can help her achieve her goal. So, Marc and Lily call a truce and they decide to work together but nothing else, nothing romantic can happen between them. But when they are together, shooting and sparring, the danger and adrenaline work as fuel that makes the sexual tension burn even deeper.


Marc wants Lily back and he is jealous of the close relationship she now has with Kingsley. Marc knows he broke her heart and even though he was trying to protect her by leaving her, his feelings for her only grew stronger in the time that they were apart. Can he deal with all the old feelings he has for her? He wants to protect her fiercely but he also knows she is very strong and that she is nothing if not a mercenary just like him or even better. Her strength is what he loves most about her but he struggles with the fear of her getting hurt and that throws off his whole game.

Lily knows how much both Mark and Kingsley love her but she’s discovering how she must deal with each men individually. She adores Kingsley in a brotherly way and Marc is the man she loves and yet she wants to beat the crap out of him on a daily basis. Both guys are very important to her. They have become her only family and she hopes that together the three of them will be able to avenge her sister’s death. But the question remains, will Lily be able to pull the trigger when she comes face to face with the Russian Mafia Monster that has been haunting her dreams?

Never a dull moment when reading a Stylo Fatôme book and this one was packed with action on top of HOT romance, making it a very entertaining series. I loved the development of the relationship between Marc and Lily, two individuals that can’t do hearts and flowers but that they are highly intense and passionate about each other.

I must admit that my favorite thing about this book was Kingsley . This British mercenary was so sexy and with a larger than life personality. I really think he deserves his own book. He is so funny and charming. He is one of those characters that makes you want to materialize inside the book, if only for just one minute and do wicked things with him. He added so much more depth to the story. He became more than a secondary character and truly stole a big chunk of my heart. I really hope to read his book one day…

Amazing read, I highly recommend series. Gripping and very steamy story, that I’m sure will become a favorite to everyone who reads it.

What an explosive read! I think I was probably holding my breath the entire time I was reading. Best Laid Plans is full of excitement, hot romance and adventure. Definitely a MUST READ series…


Liliana Brewster and Marcelle De Sant live a life of crime. She’s been a transporter for the organized crime for five years. Every day working toward one goal, vengeance.

Marc is a mercenary, one of the best in the business. He doesn’t have time for anything other than getting the jobs done, getting paid and getting out.
He is ruthless and very dangerous.

Marc and Lily are working a job together for the Russian mafia. He has to steal very precious diamonds and she needs to transport them. For weeks now, they keep passing by each other around the safe house and they flirt; the sexual tension is tangible between them. On the last day of the job they decide to say farewell by having a very hot sexual session. The problem is, not only orgasms will be detonating around them. Rooms, buildings, cars, and hot kinky sessions will be exploding as these two take a journey through Africa looking for those who set them up.

Both Marc and Lily have a mission and failure is not an option.


Best Laid Plans is probably one of the coolest books I’ve ever read. It was almost like watching one of those big budget action films. Every chapter comes packed with hot and electrifying thrills. Stylo Fatôme held me tightly by the throat with this story and the best part is, that I really liked it.

Lily was such a kick ass heroine. She has so many of the qualities I enjoy in a female character. She was strong, smart, funny and capable of doing anything and everything just as good, if not better than any man.

Then we have Marc, and well… What can I say about this sexy, rugged, alpha male? I can probably go on all night about how captivating he is. But together they are just the prefect duo. If there was a best couple in a book award, it would definitely go to them.

Completely entertaining from beginning to end, this is the first book in this series. Out Of Plans (The Mercenaries, #2) releases Dec. 15th, 2015. Do yourselves a favor and add these books to your TBR’s TODAY!!! You really don’t want to miss these…

Genre: Contemporary/Erotic Romance
 Release Date: May 2, 2015

I made a conscious decision to cheat on my husband.

Now, before you judge me, hear my story. Hear how much I’m like you, how similar my thoughts are to your own. Yes, I’m a horrible person. Yes, I’ve done horrible things. Yes, I don’t deserve forgiveness. Yes, bad things happened because of my actions.

But I’m willing to bet I’ve done things that maybe, just maybe, you have thought of doing.

Maybe, just maybe, you’re not as innocent as you’d like to think.

Or maybe I’m not so guilty…

Misch stared up at him, simply amazed. She couldn’t believe he was there, sitting next to her. Bubble, officially burst. Mr. Tal Canaan was a real life man, flesh and blood, not some fantasy to be locked away in some hotel room, shoved to the back of her brain. And the fantasy-come-to-life sitting next to her happened to be dressed up, as well. Sexy didn’t cover how he looked that evening.

“Tal, we can’t do this,” Misch lowered her voice. “You did me a huge favor the other night, really. I appreciate it, more than I can say. But it ended in that room.”

His hand moved off of her hip and across her lap. Came to rest on her bare thigh. Her voice caught in her throat.

“Oh, no. No, I don’t think so. I don’t think it ended at all. I think it’s still very much going on,” he breathed, sliding his hand up, moving the skirt of her dress out of the way.

“Tal, please,” she whimpered.

Whimpering. The man makes me whimper.

“Ah, there’s that word I love.”

“My boss could walk up any minute,” she hissed, pressing herself back into the cushioned booth, trying to gain some distance.

“Don’t worry about your boss,” Tal whispered, dipping his head and kissing her temple.

“We can’t. He knows I’m married,” she whispered back, squirming as Tal’s hand pushed the last bit of material out of the way. If a waiter popped up, he’d have a great view of Misch’s hot pink underwear.

“I told you, don’t worry.”

“Don’t worry!? How can I not -,”

She gasped as his thumb slid under the crotch of her panties. While her lips were parted, he dove in, kissing her hard. She moaned, welcoming him. Fuck, she’d cook him dinner and rub his feet, if he’d just keep touching her. Just keep wanting her.

“I love that you’re always so ready for me,” he pulled away to laugh at her. She gripped onto his arm.

“Oh my god, I’m gonna get fired,” she panted, but made no move to stop him. His thumb was ridiculously dexterous; she wondered if he was double jointed. It swam in circles, making her dizzy.

“You won’t get fired, I promise,” he had his sly smile on, and he actually rested an elbow on the back of the booth, propping his cheek against his fist. His relaxation actually made her more aware of their surroundings. She was sitting in the middle of a nice restaurant, waiting for her boss, and she had a man’s thumb in her crotch.


“Someone’s going to see us. Please.”

“You know what’s funny,” he ignored her. “This really wasn’t my plan when I decided to come here. I thought we could have a drink, talk. I could watch you laugh. You have a great laugh. But then I sat down, and you’re wearing this amazing dress, showing those amazing legs, and well, here we are.”

“I don’t want to be doing this,” she begged.

“Why not?”

“Because,” she couldn’t finish the sentence. Didn’t want to say it out loud. Wanted to pretend that she was begging him to stop for the right reasons.

“Because why?”

I’m such an awful person.

“Because I’m …”

“Since our night together,” he whispered, “this is all I’ve thought about. All I’ve wanted to do. From this point on, you’re going to be the only person I fuck while I’m here.”

“Tal, please, I’m going to … I’m about to …,” she couldn’t catch her breath. She was too busy trying to stave off a huge orgasm.

“Shhhh,” he shushed her. Then his thumb was gone. He pulled his fingers free of her underwear, ran it up her body. Rested his hand against the side of her jaw. She was breathing heavily through her nose, staring up at him. He stared right back and pressed his dewy thumb against her bottom lip. Traced it back and forth.

Resistance is so fucking futile.

“What are you doing to me?” she whispered. He smiled, then stuck his thumb in his mouth, sucking her wetness away.

“Anything you want, babe. Come find me,” he whispered back.

Then he was sliding out of his seat. Walking away.

Misch dropped her head back on the booth, tried to catch her breath. She pressed a hand to her chest and gulped in air. She had thought the night was going to be boring. Shmoozing their international partners, talking about insurance, trying to tell bad jokes in broken Italian. Getting off in the middle of a crowded dining room hadn’t been part of the plan.

Mr. Canaan had never been part of the plan.

Author Bio
Crazy woman living in an undisclosed location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since … forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball – I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I’m clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.

I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there’s your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair – both a curse and a blessing – and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can’t understand me.

Yeah. I think that about sums me up.

There was shouting in Thai, and Lily had to get physical with one of the girls in order to get her to leave, but eventually all three hookers were in the hall. Lily slammed the door shut and went back into the bathroom. Kingsley was sitting upright in the shower, still rubbing his hands all over his face and head.

“Is it cold in here?” he asked. She grabbed his arm and hauled him to his feet.

“Yes, it’s cold in here because you’re in the water,” she explained, careful as she helped him get out of the tub.

“Right, right, that makes sense,” he agreed. He leaned on her and she staggered under his weight. They tumbled out of the room and fell onto his king sized bed.

“C’mon, up up up,” she urged, sitting upright. He rolled onto his back, instead.

Lily got down on the floor, working to pull off his shoes. It wasn’t easy, he kept moving his legs and kicking his feet. His wet laces also put up a fight, but she eventually won the battle and threw his shoes across the room.

“Oi, thanks love, I hate those shoes!” he called to her as he struggled to sit upright.

“Well, then why did you -,”

For being stoned out of his mind, Kingsley was surprisingly quick, and he grabbed her by the back of her neck and yanked her forward. Lily was underneath him before she even knew what was happening, and then before she could react to what he’d just done, he was kissing her. Kingsley had kissed her once before, but it had been a goodbye kiss. No tongue, more of a show than anything else.

There was nothing funny about the way he was kissing her now. It was like he was ravenous, and she was a full buffet. She squealed and tried to push him off, but he didn’t even notice. His hands wandered down her body, squeezing her breasts while his tongue explored her mouth.

This may have been a bad idea. Maybe I should’ve gone back to Ohio.

Lily smacked him in the side of the head, and when he pulled away to question her, she whacked him in the throat. Not hard enough to do any real damage, but hard enough to make him choke and gag.

“What the fuck do you think you’re doing!?” he demanded, his voice hoarse.

“I have the same question!” she yelled back, pushing at his chest, trying to get him off of her.

“What kind of whore are you!?”

“I’m not a whore!”

He paused. His hand was on his throat, massaging where she’d hit him, and he looked down at her. His pupils were huge, and he seemed to have trouble focusing on one point. But then his eyes found hers and he stopped. Just stared down at her.

“Lily,” he said her name in a soft voice. The hand he had against his throat fell away, lightly touching the side of her face.

“Yeah, it’s me,” she said back, keeping her own voice low.

“I’m very glad you’re here,” he started, “though I wish I’d known you were coming. I hate for you to see me like this.”

“Me, too. I tried to call.”

“I’m sure you did. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m terribly sorry, but I think I’m going to pass out.”

And he did just that, collapsing on top of her. She gasped underneath his weight, and it took her a couple moments to wriggle free of him.

“Great, just great,” she grumbled, looking over at him as he snored away.

What was she supposed to do with a stoned mercenary!?
