Falling in love is the easy part, staying together…now that’s the biggest challenge of all.
Everything is finally working out for Bianca Sutherland and Taz Hazard. They’re in love and running B-Squad Security and Investigations. They’ve planned the perfect operation to take down the dangerous drug kingpin who’s kidnapped one of Bianca’s best friends. Then Taz’s wife—who was supposed to be his ex-wife—shows up on the eve of the big rescue mission and threatens to blow up his and Bianca’s happily ever after.
The last thing Bianca wants after the revelation that Taz might still be married is to have to spend time with her former live-in boyfriend who never told her he’d ever been married in the first place. But it’s too late to change plans. To save her friend, she has to swallow her hurt and go undercover with Taz as a newlywed couple at an exclusive resort. The only thing Taz wants is Bianca and he’s willing to do whatever it takes to win her back. But when it’s his life on the line, will it be too late for him to show her that his past is over and she’s the only woman for his future…
Brazen is a stand alone novel and the first full novel in the B-Squad series. However, if you want to find out how Taz and Bianca met, check out Bulletproof, a novella set in Liliana Hart’s MacKenzie Security world.
Bianca wasn’t about to go on a rescue mission without her brass balls any more than she’d leave her SIG SAUER in the armory.
She picked up the giant jawbreaker-sized orbs of solid brass from the top of the dresser. As far as good luck charms went, they were a bit…unusual, but so was just about everything in her life. The light streaming into the bedroom from the skylights dotting the ceiling in the large open-concept loft reflected off the metal balls as she rolled them in the palm of her hand.
They were hard, eye-catching, and had an impenetrable surface that gave no hints about what was inside. Grinning to herself, she shook her head. They were just like the man who’d given her Iron Man’s nads as a gag gift for their six-month dating anniversary.
The shower turned off.
Temptation tugged at her. She checked the time on her phone.
They weren’t needed for the briefing for another thirty minutes and Taz hadn’t even begun to pack for the mission to rescue Gidget. Their equipment, guns and ammo were already stowed on the private jet that would leave in a few hours to take them to the Indulgence Resort. But unless he got packing, Taz would be buck naked while they were posing as the fabulously rich and newly married Trey and Bethany Alderson. While she loved having him like that, this was the last lead they had as to Gidget’s location and nothing could take priority over finding her.
Bianca wouldn’t fail her friend again.
Taz strolled out of the bathroom in a haze of steam. A white towel sat low on his hips and the wet ebony waves of his hair made his mossy-green eyes stand out even more than usual against his brown skin. The air of barely constrained danger and never-questioned dominance as natural to him as his confident strut when he crossed the open space toward her. She caught a glimpse of his full lips curled into a sexy smirk moments before he walked behind her as if he wasn’t thinking the exact same lusty thoughts that she was.
He could have her anyway he wanted and the cocky bastard knew it—but then again, the reverse was just as true.
They may not have shared their darkest secrets with each other, but all of those skeletons were in the past and they were about the future. Taz. Her. The B-Squad. She formed a fist around the good-luck brass balls. They’d find Gidget, destroy the drug kingpin and the world would be theirs. There was nothing standing in their way.
Taz wrapped a sinewy forearm around her waist, yanking her backwards against his hard chest. “It’s not polite to play with your balls so much.”
Desire licked her skin, making her feel as naked as he was. Water droplets from his chest dampened the back of her black tank top. Her mouth went dry. Her panties went wet. And her heart went into overdrive.
“Like you know anything about being polite,” she said, her voice breathy and low.
His fingers dropped to the button of her jeans. “I’d rather stick with what I’m good at.”
Title: Bullet Proof (A Mackenzie Family Novella)
Series: B-Squad #.05

From Liliana Hart’s New York Times bestselling MacKenzie family comes a new story by best-selling author Avery Flynn…
“Being one of the good guys is not my thing.”
Bianca Sutherland isn’t at an exclusive Eyes-Wide-Shut style orgy for the orgasms. She’s there because the only clue to her friend’s disappearance is a photo of a painting hanging somewhere in Bisu Manor. Determined to find her missing friend when no one else will, she expects trouble when she cons her way into the party—but not in the form of a so-hot-he-turns-your-panties-to-ash former boxer.
Taz Hazard’s only concern is looking out for himself and he has no intention of changing his ways until he finds sexy-as-sin Bianca at the most notorious mansion in Ft. Worth. Now, he’s tangled up in a missing person case tied into a powerful new drug about to flood the streets, if they can’t find a way to stop it before its too late. Taking on a drug cartel isn’t safe, but when passion ignites between them Taz and Bianca discover their hearts aren’t bulletproof either.
Bianca Sutherland was screwed and not in the way her hot trainer was thinking—or the way she’d fantasized about involving the tightly-wound hottie.
The dude was a certifiable control freak, but with his tawny skin, light green eyes, curly black hair, and trim beard framing thick lips, he was devastatingly sexy. Add to it the hard, muscular powerful body of a boxer who never really stopped training and it was no wonder that she had a hard time concentrating when he told her what to do when it came to punching, jabbing and delivering a killer uppercut.
She was good with that at the Devil’s Dip Gym, but here, when she was a woman on a mission? Oh, hell no.
Of course, this was what she got for jumping in blind when she found out Gidget Harms was missing and no one was doing a damn thing to look for her. So she’d made yet another deal with the devil, otherwise known as Taz Hazard, the hottest man with the most ridiculous name in Ft. Worth.
His strong fingers played on her hip, sending little electric jolts over her skin “Let me do the talking.”
“I can speak for myself.” Damn, she hated not being able to hide the hungry want in her voice. Focus, Bianca. “I have questions for them.”
“Trust me,” he said as he moved his hand so it cupped the back of her neck and his thumb stroked the sensitive spot behind her earlobe. “This isn’t the time.”
Watching the Davies-Smythes approach, the hushed crowd parting automatically for them as if they were demigods, Bianca fought not to melt into a puddle at Taz’s feet. “I may not get another chance.”
His hand tensed. Someone wasn’t used to being defied. Poor hot boy doesn’t like to hear no. What a shocker.
“Why do you need to talk to them?”
“None of your business.” The last thing she needed was to be patted on the head like a dumb little girl by one more man when she explained that Gidget wouldn’t have just run off.
“What are you into, Kitten?”
“Keep asking that question and you’ll get my claws.”
“That smart mouth of yours really needs to get put to better use.” He sighed. “Follow my lead and you’ll have access to them anytime you want.”
Right, because she couldn’t possibly manage to get a few answers herself. After all, it’s not like she managed to get an invite to the most exclusive Eyes Wide Shut lifestyle party in the state of Texas by herself. She was well on her way to getting her state private investigation and security contractor license. Mr. Sexy But Bossy may not realize it, but there was a helluva lot more to her than some poor little rich girl.
“I had a plan of my own already,” she said, unable to keep the annoyance out of her tone. “Make your introductions and you’re welcome to wander off.”
Determined dominance radiated off of him in waves. “You’re not getting rid of me while you’re in this house.”
Refusing to be cowed, she raised her chin. “Then don’t expect me to keep my mouth shut.”
“Bianca,” he said in a harsh whisper that wobbled on the edge of losing control. “I know them. You’re new. Anything that comes from you will be suspicious. What do you want to know?”
Damn. Why did he have to make a quality argument? The Davies-Smythes were only a few yards away from where she and Taz stood. She had half a heartbeat to decide. She couldn’t explain it, but her gut went with Taz. Mutinous bastard. “Their art collection.”
If he had questions, he didn’t have time to voice them before the couple stopped in front of them. Both were tall, sexy and pale as her mother’s wedding China and yet they were as untouchable as an emerald under glass. And these two ran sex parties? Chalk one up to looks being deceiving.
“Mr. Hazard, it’s always a good night when you honor us with your presence,” Amelia said, her honeyed upper-class British voice like a cheese grater against Bianca’s skin. “Won’t you introduce us to this lovely creature?”
As if Bianca hadn’t been vetted six ways to Sunday and already ponied up a cool ten thousand dollars for a previsionary membership into Bisu Manor. She barely managed not to roll her eyes.
Taz gave her a wolfish smile that made her knees buckle. “This is Kitten.”
“Just Kitten?” Oliver asked, curiosity mixed with something darker in his gray eyes.
“Yes, my little exhibitionist has a shy side.” Taz shrugged his broad shoulders. “I find the contradiction… arousing.”
