“Don’t miss out! I’ve given all this series 5 stars. I definitely recommend. Ivy has a brilliant way of writing and shaping each character, in all her short stories. Definitely check them out!” – Jade from Inspired by a Book blog.

A sexy new adult forbidden romance.  For anyone who has ever lusted after a professor.  For readers who crave passion and drama.  For smut-loving readers on a rainy day… Professor Hunter is a total heartthrob. Wealthy, mysterious, gorgeous, and utterly unobtainable. I can understand how a girl might lose her senses in the face of all that perfection.” – Shurrn from Smutsonian.com

Temptation has quickly turned into addiction. Penny Taylor fell hard for the sexy, mysterious, exciting, and dangerous Professor Hunter. But scandalous affairs are meant to go down in flames. Now that he’s not speaking to her, she feels numb. And what hurts the most is that he appears to be completely fine. As she struggles to accept that their relationship is really over, her best friend’s crude advice is in the back of her mind- the best way to get over someone is to get under someone else.

Will she be able to move on, or is her addiction to her alluring professor only just beginning?

But graduation, starting an internship, and planning a wedding is a lot for Penny to tackle. Especially when mysteries from James’ past are clawing at the surface and his scheming ex and unsupportive parents threaten to destroy the happy couple.

Devotion CoverDevotion (The Hunted Series Book 4)

Tick tock. One day before the wedding of her dreams, Penny is in a city that is no longer her home. Alone. Heartbroken. Lost. Could the past few years really mean so little to a man that became her world? To a man she’d do anything to protect? There is no future without him. There is no her without him.

With only 24 hours until the wedding, is there enough time to repair the damage? Tick tock.

And even if Penny and James do come back to each other, Isabella is still out there plotting. The world is still against them. Darkness still lurks in the shadows of James’ past. A student and her professor were never meant to be forever. They thought it was an everlasting love, but it was doomed from the very start. Tick tock.

Temptation led to addiction, which exploded into an eruption of chaos. And when the pieces settled, only one thing became clear…devotion. One great love. A love worth fighting for. Because the only thing that lasts forever is love.

51S545NlaFLFoundation (The Hunted Series Book 5)

Penny and James defied the odds. A professor and his student were never supposed to become husband and wife, let alone a father and a mother. The couple created a foundation in NYC that is held together with love, family, and friends. A foundation that they believed was impenetrable.

But what happens when the life they know is threatened? If a struggle that should bring them closer together begins to tear them apart? All it takes is – One. Single. Slip. Foundations crumble. Will Penny and James continue to defy the odds?

      1. I was able to download Temptation on my Nook, and I love this book. Unfortunately, the rest of the series is not available through Barnes and Noble. When will the e-books become available? I have a few chapters, before I am finished and wanted to continue with the series. I love the professor, but I, also, love Tyler. I hope he finds happiness.

  15. I have to say the only reason I downloaded the books is because it had my name in it,penny. Then when James named was revealed I almost feel out of my chair because that is my husbands name. I have became so engrossed with the books I read them in 2 days. In fact it is 3am and I just finished book 3. I don’t think I have ever loved a book series as much as this. I have cried tears and laughed so hard I thought I would fall out of my chair. My heart would race with each turning page. I have to say this is by far better then any book I have ever read. I loved 50 shades but it doesn’t even touch this. This has such a turning and twisting plot that I would read the book while I did dishes. I just could not put it down. This would be the best movie ever. I am a huge 50 shades fan but this book made me feel all sorts of crazy emotions as the character felt them. Thank u so much for a wonderful book and I have already preordered the next.

It felt like I really knew them. When you introduced Mason to the story, I thought he was just going to be a super minor character. To know the bond that he and James share, and how he accepted Penny, was a nice surprise. And Rob. I will be reading his book as well. Thank you for giving us these characters.

      You’re in luck for Rob and Daphne…they make quite a few appearances in book 5 of The Hunted series. Also in that book, you will get several chapters from James’ point of view –the first time I have ever done that 🙂 As for Layla and Ethan, I’m not sure! I haven’t thought about the next chapter in their lives, but that doesn’t mean it won’t happen 🙂
