Cover Reveal For Sinful Rewards 7

Yay! We have a cover and blurb for Sinful Rewards 7 (releasing in January, available for pre-order now)!

To obtain these things she’s desired for so long, she only has to do two things. Walk away from her best friend, a woman who is destined to betray her… …and end her passionate nightly encounters with a certain tattooed biker, a former Marine who can never give her what she needs.
