Saved By The Single Dad Seal * Release Blitz *

Title: Saved By The Single Dad Seal 
Series:  (Hearts of Stone #2)
Author: Nikky Kaye 
Genre: Navy Seal Romance 

When my friend Evie lost her heart—and her v-card—to billionaire Dominic Stone, it put me in the line of fire of his adopted brother, Jake.

That line of fire is so hot that I nearly melted when he suggested we go together to Evie and Dom’s wedding. I don’t trust my hormones around him, so I told him—and myself—that I wasn’t interested.

Even if he is a wall of perfection with a bad boy smirk and a filthy mouth.

Even if the tattoos on his arms shift hypnotically when he holds his adorable daughter.

Even if his military training and fierce protective streak could shelter me from the secret admirer whose creepy gifts are escalating.

Even if… oh, who am I kidding?

I’m in real trouble, but I’m not sure who is more dangerous—my stalker, or Jake Stone.

Saved By the Single Dad SEAL is a steamy story of self-discovery, steely nerves (and other body parts), suspense, and singularly bad ninja skills. This follow-up to Bought By the Billionaire Brothers can be read as a standalone—if your knees don’t wobble too much, that is! 

Katy Nixon is the playful alter ego of the already playful Nikky Kaye, who is the alter ego of— wait, I’m not telling you that! Damn, I’d make a terrible secret superhero. I love reading and writing funny, sexy stories. I am over-educated and under-organized, and have a terrible habit of adding more books to my Kindle than I can possibly read. My auction experience is limited to eBay and viewings at Sotheby’s and Christie’s in New York. The only double penetration I’ve had is being sandwiched in my own bed by my young twin sons. Today, the biggest risk I took was having cotton candy for dinner. And it was fucking delicious

As she falls into his arms at the water’s edge he suddenly recognizes the dark-haired green-eyed beauty. Months before she’d begged him to look at her ideas for his house. Though he’d agreed and was eager to see her again the portfolio had failed to appear. Who interfered, and why?

A ripple of something indefinable was moving through his body. He’d wronged her, but who was she, and what had he done?
“This isn’t about me owning this property,” he exclaimed. “Tell me, dammit. What’s going on with you?”
“I’m leaving, that’s what’s going on with me,” she snapped, and turning away she hurried towards the water, but to his surprise she abruptly stopped, spun around, and glowered at him. “I’m glad I was irritating, I’m glad I messed with your perfect little world,” she shouted. “Maybe I was wrong to trespass, but you deserved every aggravating moment, and I might have a sore backside but it’s worth it. It’s time you did some thinking…asshole!”
As she stormed off a second time, he stared after her in complete disbelief. The bikini-clad, beautiful young woman had been the source of ongoing irritation for many weeks, and he’d done what came naturally.  He was a dominant, spanking was as inherent as breathing, but had he acted too quickly? Clearly there was more to the story, but why hadn’t she told him? He thought about chasing after her but changed his mind. She was in a state, and he wasn’t feeling particularly happy either. Striding across to the staircase he punched the code into the gate keypad and started up the steps. His habit was to take them two at a time for exercise. He’d been tempted to put in an electric chair, but he liked the forced workout.
“Avery Madison,” he muttered. “I’d remember that name, but her voice, I know her voice, dammit.”
She had a knock-out body, but how could he recognize any woman wearing such large dark sunglasses? Any time he’d studied her through the telescope they’d covered her face. Had it been purposeful? Had she deliberately been hiding behind them so he wouldn’t recognize her?
“Dammit. I should have made her take them off. What’s wrong with me?”
He couldn’t abide sand in his house, and before entering he made it a point to clean it off with a brush he kept hanging on the railing. As he swept his feet and legs he continued pondering, and moving inside he headed up the stairs to his bedroom. As he dropped his clothes into the bathroom hamper, and washed his hands and face, the young woman’s attitude and words continued to weigh on his mind.
“We’ve met,” he mumbled. “I can feel it, and I know your voice. It’ll come to me. Once I calm down, it’ll come to me.”
Quickly dressing in comfortable slacks and a thin v-neck cashmere sweater, he moved swiftly back to the kitchen and filled a mug with coffee from his built-in coffeemaker. Curious to see if she’d left he carried the hot drink outside to the deck, and walking to the railing he stared down at his beach. To his surprise he saw her standing thigh-deep in the water. The baseball cap was gone, and her long dark hair was flirting with the wind. The sun, huge and low on the horizon, was sending a myriad of colors across the sky and sea. The sight was breathtaking. It was a photograph waiting to be taken.
Hurrying inside he grabbed his phone, moved quickly back to the railing and framed the shot. He snapped the picture, and as he stared at the captured image he felt a strange stirring in his soul. He glanced down at her, and to his surprise she turned around and gazed up at him. Had she felt his eyes on her? The moment felt almost ethereal, and impulsively he raised his hand in a simple wave. As she briefly lifted hers in response, he wanted to run down the stairs and pull her out of the water. Without those damn sunglasses he’d know her, he was sure of it, but she had already turned back to face the sea and was moving slowly forward.
“I’m going to have this printed out,” he mumbled looking back at the photograph, then seeing what looked like a speck of dirt on the glass he brushed it aside.
It didn’t move.
He enlarged the image.
A shard of panic sliced through his being.
It was a shark’s fin, and it was perilously close to shore.
It was perilously close to her.

Single dad and star defenseman Matt LaRue lives for his kids and hockey. He’s had one failed marriage and doesn’t have any interest in going through that hell again. As conservative as they come, he can’t comprehend his unexplainable attraction to a free-spirited female who changes hair color more often than his boys create new excuses to avoid doing their homework.

Violet Strider is fleeing the past. She has a new start, new identity, and is hiding a big secret.

Relationships are built on trust, and Vi’s house of cards is about to take a tumble. Can Vi confront her past and finally put it behind her, while earning Matt’s forgiveness?

Determined to avoid the violence that claimed her family and friends, Carissa Elliott flees her hometown with a dangerous plan. She has proof that Calum DeMateo killed her father—now she just has to catch him. To do so, she’ll have to transform herself from small-town ingénue to New York crime boss.
When her path crosses with Alec McLean, the sexy stranger with whom she once shared a steamy nightclub kiss, things take an unexpected turn. Alec heads his family’s criminal organization, the kind of made man Carissa should want nothing to do with. But he also has a plan to take down Calum, and the flames that flicker between them are irresistible.
Will their vengeful quests jeopardize their chance at lasting love?



“Ladies, you’ve been invited to a VIP table.”
Carissa whirled around to face a tall, dark-haired man whose muscles went past impressive to
downright intimidating. Dressed in a black T-shirt one size too small and tight, dark pants, the man screamed security guard.
“Not interested.” Carissa turned back to Mel, whose eyes bulged in an are-you-out-of-your-damnedmind?
The security guard tapped Carissa’s shoulder. “It’s Noah’s table. He says you would be more
comfortable there since you’re taking a break from dancing.”
The guard pointed to a roped area where a man sat watching the dance floor. She couldn’t see his
face. Only his thick, wavy hair. “Who’s Noah?”
The guard tilted his head toward the dance floor. “The man your friend is dancing with. That’s his
brother at the table.”
Mel leaned toward her. Her smile was sweet as an ice cream cone in the summer, but her voice
carried the dual edge of a Katana sword. “You’re turning down a VIP invite? Who does that? I’m giving you two choices. Come back to the dance floor with me, or go make eyes at that sexy piece of man meat over there.”
Carissa could stand at the bar until the girls finished dancing, fending off drunks with hot breath and zero self-awareness, or wait sitting down. She burned Mel with a glare and turned to the security guard.
“Fine. Lead the way.”
She followed the guard around the dance floor to the cluster of white chaise lounges under canopies.
Each was tied with drapes—some untied, providing an intimate ambiance for the occupants. It was all very risqué. The guard lifted the rope, and she made her way to the canopy covering the lone man.
Her deep-red, ankle-wrap stilettos were not meant for the long walk to Club Retreat or long periods of dancing, so the heeled soles were fighting back with vicious intent. She sat on the tufted chaise lounge, a slight moan escaping her lips. She wanted to marry that chair.
Noah’s brother didn’t bother to look at her. Carissa didn’t bother to introduce herself.
Instead, she searched for Mel among the crowd. With black curls tumbling over her shoulders and her emerald dress, she was easy to find. Carissa spotted her laughing next to a tall guy with pants designed to show his blessings. On the other side of the lit pool, Gia swayed against Noah in slow, coordinated moves.
“My brother’s really into your friend.”
Carissa’s hand flew to her chest. Immersed in her own thoughts, he’d caught her unaware. In the
sultry moonlight, his features were striking. His eyes were not one shade, but the exact place where blue met green.
“He’s not alone,” she finally said. Was that really her voice?
“What’s your name?”
His voice, a smoky baritone, stroked her ears, and Carissa’s gaze lingered on his made-for-kissing mouth. She tried to remember the name she’d made up before leaving the hotel. Her memory blank, she used the first name that came to her.
His eyes narrowed, his lips dissolving into an I’m-not-buying-that-bridge smirk. “I guess that would make me . . . Tony?”
Heat spread up her neck and over her face. He saw right through her lie. “I’m sorry. It’s from the
movie I was watching before we left the room.”
He laughed. “I was watching that too. It’s one of my favorites.”
She rolled her eyes and swept her hair over her shoulder. “Isn’t Scarface every guy’s favorite
“Are you saying I’m not special?” He raised an eyebrow and moved closer to her on the wide sofa.
The smell of the ocean with hints of citrus teased her nostrils. The satinwood undertones caused a flutter in her chest. She wasn’t going to flirt with him. She couldn’t. “That’s not what I meant . . . ”
He mirrored the side-to-side movement of her head. “No?”
Carissa laughed and flipped her palms up. “Everyone just seems to love that bad guy.”
“He was a complex character.”
She crossed one leg over the other and hugged her knee with both hands. “Really? He was a
criminal, a drug dealer who hurt people.”
Noah’s brother braced his hand on the seat a few inches from her. “True, but he was also relatable.”
Carissa tilted her head to one side. “In what way?”
“Take his relationship with Elvira, for example.” He lowered his head toward her as if he intended to confide something. “It took one look, and he had to have her.”
A string pulled her chest tight, tight, tight. She cleared her throat. “She was his boss’s girlfriend. Not very ethical if you ask me.”
“Ethical? You said yourself he was a drug dealer. You’re not from Miami, are you?”
Stay cool. There’s nothing wrong with a little light flirting. “No, I’m from Eden Rose, a small town in Maryland.”
A slight frown ghosted over his forehead. “Are you here on spring break?”
“No. I’m not in school anymore. I’m here on a mini vacay. What about you?”
“I’m here on business. What do you do?”
Carissa shook her head. “Nothing yet. I’m looking for work.”
“What field?” he asked.
“Human resources and entrepreneurship.”
“I’m impressed.” His voice got deeper. “What do you want to do?”
He edged his hand closer to hers, distracting her. “I . . .I want to find grants for people to make
money doing what they love, using what they know, what they’re good at.”
“That’s a big dream for a first job out of college.” He gave her a small, patronizing smile as if she were a pageant contestant wishing for world peace.

“If you’re not going to dream big, why dream at all?”
