The complete Marked Men Collection - six scorching reads: Rule, Jet, Rome, Nash, Rowdy and Asa!RULE: Shaw is a good girl and should know better than to get involved with a guy like Rule. Rule is the guy your mother always warned you about: he's used to getting everything he wants yet even he knows that beautiful Shaw is strictly off limits. But what if what you want is exactly what you need?JET: Ayden is a good Southern girl, from the tips of her cowboy boots to the depths of her country music soul. With a troubled childhood behind her, all she wants is a normal life - and a bad boy like Jet is definitely not in the plan.

Rigid and uncompromising, he's returned from his final tour of duty a broken man. In the search for perfect, imperfection might just be what they need...NASH: Nash is reeling from a long-held family secret and needs something to hold on to - and the nurse with the beautiful grey eyes seems familiar... Saint knew Nash way back when and she can't tell if he's the same guy who made her life hell, who she vowed never to forgive. Trouble is, Nash is impossible to stay away from...ROWDY: After his first broken heart, Rowdy decided life was all about the good times. But when a ghost from the past appears, he questions everything he thought he knew about love. Salem left her unhappy childhood behind as soon as she could, but she never forgot the boy next door...ASA: Royal is a cop, first and foremost, so when a call-out goes wrong, she finds herself suspended from the job, seeking solace in oblivion.

In New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jay Crownover's third novel in her sexy, thrilling Welcome to the Point series, a woman's search for repentance leads her to the one man from her past she can't forget as they join forces to save their city-and the explosive love neither can live without. Titus King sees the world in black and white. Right and wrong. Which is why as a teenager he left behind the only family he'd ever known to make a better life for himself. Now a police detective in one of the worst cities in the country, he can't deny his life has turned into a million different shades of gray. The new criminal element in The Point has brought vengeance and destruction right to Titus's front door, and the difference between right and wrong is nothing compared to keeping those he loves alive. To add to his already strained moral compass, the beautiful and mysterious Reeve Black has made her way back to town, and she might be as dangerous to Titus as the guy trying to destroy the Point because he needs her-in more ways than one. Reeve knows all about how ruthless this new threat to destroy The Point can be... and instead of running away, she wants to help. She has a lot to repent for and saving the city, plus the hot cop that she hasn't been able to forget might just be the only way she can finally find some inner peace. With an entire city poised on the brink of war, Titus and Reeve stand in the crossfire-and it will take two brave souls to fight for the ultimate love.
