“Just as soon as her brain returned from its trip to Lustopia, the realization that she’d just fucked her landlord and quasi-nemesis on the trunk of her car hit her with a force of a Mack truck sliding on a sheet of ice and slamming into a wall made out of marshmallows.”
Having read and loved the two previous books in the Harbor City series (The Negotiator & The Charmer), author Avery Flynn had her work cut out for her in redeeming douche canoe Tyler Jacobson. Ok, maybe that’s just my opinion, but I did not care for him in the other stories (I may have fantasized about running him over with my car) and was a wee bit hesitant in reading The Schemer when I saw he was going to be the hero. But as much as I despised him, Miss Flynn proved that perception is not always reality—Everyone deserves a second chance.
Tyler and Everly’s story is one of two sides of the same coin…and when that coin is flipped, anything goes! And book peeps, I mean ANYTHING!
This series is one to put on your must read list! Highly recommend!
Sharing what I love,
The Schemer Blurb:
Tyler Jacobson has a plan for everything—except how to handle his completely annoying, utterly frustrating, and totally sexy upstairs neighbor. He couldn't care less if Everly Ribinski thinks he's equally irritating—until he discovers she's the only one who can help him land a business deal that will finally make him feel like he's more than just a guy from the wrong side of the tracks.
Color him shocked when Everly refuses to help, insisting she should have run him over in the parking garage when she had the chance. Harsh. But possibly deserved. Tyler may have spent the last few months reveling in annoying the fiery gallery owner with a dark past, but he's got secret leverage she can't refuse.
If only one meeting didn't turn into a fake date that turned into more. Way more. Like naked and hot as hell more.
The last thing either of them wants is to catch feelings for someone who is so obviously not their type. Good thing that will never happen. Right?
Each book in the Harbor City series is STANDALONE:
* The Negotiator
* The Charmer

Review by Veronica of The Red Fury by Kathryn Leveque
If you loved The Wolfe, Rise of the Defender, and The Dark One: Dark Knight, welcome to the original Le Veque epic Medieval saga of THE RED FURY. England and Scotland collide in this blockbuster tale of revenge, betrayal, hope, and passion.
1233 A.D. - A young woman forced to command her father’s battered Highlander army upon his death. Her only hope in saving her home, and her life, is with a fearsome mercenary called The Red Fury.
Elisabel de Carron is a young woman with a massive legacy weighing on her slender shoulders. As heiress to the Earldom of Ayr, she is a cousin to the king through her mother, and the king considers her a most valuable bargaining tool in the politics of Scotland. But Elisabel isn’t a willing pawn for the king – she’s only concerned with saving her family home, Castle Torridon, from the repeated attacks of a former ally. After a particularly nasty siege, Elisabel realizes that they cannot withstand another and she is forced to summon the most feared mercenary in Scotland, a man known as The Red Fury.
Andrew d’Vant is a paradox – an English knight, he escaped his wicked brother years ago and fled to the highlands of Scotland, forming one of the most rag-tag and fiercest mercenary armies the world has ever seen. He has become very rich by fighting – and winning – other men’s battles. Summoned by Elisabel, Andrew’s price is too high for the beaten castle but his instant attraction to Elisabel has him accepting the task for far less than his usual fee. There’s something about the strong, battered, and beautiful woman that draws him in.
But The Red Fury gets more than he bargained for.
A simple task of defending a castle becomes an enormous and complex tale of adventure, suspicion, royal intervention, and dark family secrets. When Elisabel is thrust into the king’s politics in spite of her resistance, she finds herself pledged to none other than Andrew’s wicked brother. Now, Elisabel finds herself at the heart of the Kingdom of Scotland and deeply in love with Andrew, and he with her. Andrew must join with former adversaries in order to save the woman he loves from the man who ruined his life.
The Red Fury is in for the fight of his life with the prize being Elizabel.
