The Runaway – Savage Mountain Men Book 2 – A Reverse Harem Novel By Mika Lane

The Runaway
Savage Mountain Men Book 2
A Reverse Harem Novel
Mika Lane


I was a hunted woman.
Taken in by 4 mountain mercenaries.

Accepting their help was a mistake.

Why? Because mercenaries trust no one. They’re scarred and damaged men.

And now they won’t let me go. Or stop punishing me… for something I didn’t do.

Think life with hired killers is fun? Think again

This naughty, over-the-top romance includes 4 hulking mountain men with checkered pasts and doubtful futures, claiming the one woman they can’t live without. If you love outrageous stories that a bit of spanking, tying up, voyeurism, and tough military dudes, this might be the book for you.

Mari was helping her friend out of a very dangerous situation when everything went to hell. She has to run with a gang after her for what she’s done, but she’s being followed and needs help.

Derek and Christian are on their way home from a mission when they stumble upon the little beauty. Feisty, yet scared, she takes a seat next to them when her bus makes a rest stop. Hearing them discuss needing a housekeeper, she jumps at the chance. With these men around she could be safe.

This is a favorite scene.

As we got back on the road, I pulled out my cell to let Luci know I was okay.

No signal. Great. Guess I was in one of those dead zones.

“So what about you guys?” I asked.

Silence greeted me, and the guys glanced at each other quickly.

Okayyy… “We have a place on Savage Mountain. Nice place, remote and private, quiet and peaceful,” Christian said.

“How many of you are living there?” I asked.


Christ, this was like pulling teeth. I leaned forward, onto their seat, to see if I could better engage them. “What do you do for a living? How do you get by up there?”

Dutch answered after another glance, his voice no nonsense and flat. “We’re pretty much retired.”

“Oh.” Retired? What, did they win the lottery or something? “Well, that’s nice. Retired from what?”

This time Dutch turned to face me. “We’re retired from the military. We lead simple but satisfying lives.” Then he turned back around, like that answered everything.

Okay. Guess that was the end of that line of questioning. Still, it didn’t make sense. I mean, the guys weren’t old enough to be twenty-year retired military, and neither seemed the kind to be medically retired either. So… what the hell?

I allowed myself one more question. I didn’t want to risk getting kicked out, especially since I had no idea where we were, or what the hell Savage Mountain was.

“Hey guys?” I asked.


“Um, do you think we’ll pass a place with some food? I didn’t eat back there at the truck stop, and am kind of starving.”

“We can’t stop,” Christian said, a lot more warmly than Dutch was. “Too risky. You’ll have to wait until we arrive at the cabin. Sorry. We have food at the house and you can eat when we get there.”

Eh. I’d survive. I lay down on the Jeep’s backseat, bunching up my purse to use as a pillow. Before I did, however, I dug the biscuit out that I’d swiped off my breakfast plate and sunk my teeth into the soft, buttery dough. It was comforting in a discomforting way. I mean, how could something be so delicious and pleasing when everything had just been pulled out from under me?

I thanked my lucky stars these guys had crossed my path, and fingers crossed, they’d feel just as grateful that I’d stumbled into theirs. Even if it were short term, they’d become a lifeline I hadn’t seen coming.

Of course saying that nothing but her cleaning would be on the table, but in reality these guys were hot and she is no saint.

This book heats up quickly and stays that way, we also have a bit of a conflict between Mari and the cook just to spice things up a bit.

Lots of interesting twists and revelations as this story unfolds. I look forward to the next installment in this series.

Writing has been a passion of mine since, well, forever (my first book was “The Day I Ate the Milkyway,” a true fourth-grade masterpiece), but steamy romance is now what gives purpose to my days and nights.

I live in magical Northern California with my own handsome alpha dude, sometimes known as Mr. Mika Lane, and an evil cat named Bill.

A lover of shiny things, I’ve been known to try to new recipes on unsuspecting friends, find hiding places so I can read undisturbed, and spend my last dollar on a plane ticket somewhere. I also drink cheap champagne and have way too many shoes.

I’ll always promise you a hot, sexy romp with kick-ass but imperfect heroines, and some version of a modern-day happily ever after.

I LOVE to hear from readers when I’m not dreaming up naughty tales to share. Join my Insider Group  below, So we can get to know each other better.

Curse Reversed – Wards and Wands Book 2 by Rebecca Royce

Curse Reversed
Wards and Wands Book 2
Rebecca Royce



In and out of institutions for over a decade, Eleanor St. Vincent can’t get the episodes racking her to stop. Half-witch, and lousy spell caster, she doesn’t picture much of a future. Then one day, Mitchell Sharpe catches her eye.

Mitchell Sharpe never dreamed he’d need the Prestige Institute. A year spent under a hex cost him everything, and he has no idea where to go from there. The last thing he expected to find was love.

Their happiness is short-lived as societal demands and ancient curses threaten to cave-in all they want to build. The deck might be stacked against them, but Mitchell and Eleanor will fight for their second chance at life…and love.



If you started with Hexed and Vexed, you’ll remember Mitchell had been Hexed and it was removed by the enforcer. As a result of having the hex reinforced repeatedly for a year, he is in Prestige. Prestige is a specialized hospital for taking care of witches with unique issues.

Eleanor gets loud and violent, but never remembers what happened. She loses that time, there is no curse or hex they can find and have attributed it to her being half human with no real power.

This is a favorite scene when she and Mitchell introduce themselves.

It was past time to return to her room. There wasn’t a frozen yogurt machine anywhere to be found. That was really too bad.

She left, turning down the hallway toward the direction of her room. This time it was numbered 55A. That meant she was in the A ward and room fifty-five.


She turned at the sound of Eyebrows’ call as he ran down the hall toward her.

She stood still, the weight of the world settling on her shoulders. Things were hard. They always were. For a minute, she’d forgotten.

“You were just going to leave?” He scrunched up his face. “Without answering my question.”

“It’s not a day for answered questions.” Sleep called to Eleanor. She’d crawl into bed. When her eyes closed, she’d be back in Egypt, under the pyramids with her mother, laughing as they took impressions and planned for a future that wouldn’t include lying. Even if they’d both known that wouldn’t come.

He ran a hand through his hair. “You answered mine and then I… I was rude. I apologize.”

“I never should have asked you to begin with. But what can I say? I’m crazy.”

He winced. “There you are again with that word. I’m in here because I was hexed for a year. Hexed to break up with my fiancé, who I then left at the altar, and to marry another woman who wanted to use me for my social power to advance herself both politically and within her career. Every day for a year she hexed me. I said and did horrible things to the woman I loved, until she lost her love for me, and is now married to someone else. Then I stumbled upon some enforcers who took the hex off me and woke up to discover a year had passed. That I’d been… forced to do things I never would have done. Both emotionally and physically. And I’d lost everything. I’m having a little trouble dealing with that. Also, there are ramifications to having been hexed that long that the doctors here can help me with.” He cleared his throat. “Or were able to help me. We’re talking about sending me home very soon.”

Well, in all of the things Eleanor could have imagined for this perfect looking man she hadn’t thought that would be the answer at all. She stared up at him. He was taller than she’d thought when he’d been sitting. At least six-foot-two since he stood higher than her father who was six-foot-one inches, if she remembered correctly.

“That really, really sucks.” Sometimes there was nothing else to say.

He snorted before he outright laughed, throwing his head back when he did. “Yeah… it does.”

She nodded at him. If anyone understood being out of control, it would be this man. “Have a nice evening.”

“Hold on, will you come out again? I don’t know your name.”

Some of the ease from before moved through her. “I don’t know yours either.”

“There’s a good way to remedy that. I’m Mitchell Sharpe. And you’re No-first-name-given St. Vincent.”

She still held to the idea of him being seriously cute. How had any woman replaced him in so little time? Oh, what did Eleanor know about relationships anyway? She’d never had one. Not ever. She never would. Even if she wasn’t nuts, half-breeds didn’t fall in easily with witches when it came to love, and she had too much magic for the humans to accept her. But none of that mattered since she was, in fact, nuts.

“I’m Eleanor. I don’t suppose we’ll see each other again. You’re leaving, and they don’t let me out much.”

He shook his head. “You don’t seem dangerous to me. So whatever you did to get out today? Do it again. Let’s be friends while we’re both in here. I want to ask you more about that tattoo.”

She looked down at the symbol. “Ah, it makes sense then. Why you want to hang out.”

“Maybe I just like you.”

Eleanor held up her wrist. “Maybe you just like tattoos.”

He laughed again. It was an easy sound. And because nothing was easy—not in this place or outside the walls—she ran down the hallway to her room, unsure what she was escaping.
Rebecca Royce. Curse Reversed (Kindle Locations 205-239). Kindle Edition.

Things get very interesting once Mitchell is released and he starts investigating Eleanor’s tattoo and the language she speaks when she loses time.

We meet many interesting characters and see some favorites from Hexed and Vexed as Eleanor’s grandparents take her away from Prestige and hire former enforcers Stefan and Kim to watch over her.

Fast-paced and suspenseful as the mystery of her ‘illness’ unfolds and her relationship with Mitchell heats up.

I can’t wait to read the next book in this series!

As a teenager, I would hide in my room to read my favorite romance novels when I was supposed to be doing my homework. I hope, these days, that my parents think it was worth it.

I am the mother of three adorable boys and I am fortunate to be married to my best friend. I live in Austin Texas where I am determined to eat all the barbecue in town.

I am in love with science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal and try to use all of these elements in my writing. I’ve been told I’m a little bloodthirsty so I hope that when you read my work you’ll enjoy the action packed ride that always ends in romance. I love to write series because I love to see characters develop over time and it always makes me happy to see my favorite characters make guest appearances in other books.

In my world anything is possible, anything can happen, and you should suspect that it will.

I’d love to hear from you!
