I race to finance it.
I evade to protect it.
I kill to attain it.
I planned everything.

Except her.
The alluring, curvaceous blonde at the finish line.
With sapphire eyes that cheat and lie.
Whose powerful family murdered mine.

The strongest love begins from a place of conflict…

Dirty Ties is one of those books that keeps you on the edge of your seat. It starts fast paced and never slows. I loved all the twists, turns, secrets and surprises. Pam Godwin is one of those authors I can always count on to be consistently good. Her books are always original, gritty and well written. She never disappoints. This book was no exception.

The strongest love begins from a place of conflict. It's a volatile journey of committing and fighting and recommitting, but the effort is resolute and evolves into something so consuming the heart aches just thinking about it.

This book was one helluva ride! It kept me on my toes, had numerous twists and reveals I didn’t see coming and most of all, was so steamy I was sure my iPad was going to combust. But at the same time I also felt a wee bit underwhelmed by it all and part of the reason is because of this misconception I had, so I do want to emphasize that this book is a contemporary erotic romance with suspense elements. I don’t know why I thought it was dark – probably because everything else I’ve rea

Wow! That was one hell of a sexy mysterious ride! Kaci Baskel is married to her gay best friend and they are being blackmailed by not only her evil stepfather but her own parents. You see, Trenchant Media is run by Collin and Kaci’s evil parents and our couple has been stuck following their rule for many years.

Kaci is so much more than what she seems in the corporate world. She is a Ducanti rider and has been having hot crazy fanta

This is my first book by Pam Godwin, but it definitely won’t be my last. I loved this one about revenge and self-discovery. Our two main characters are on two different paths, but are highly motivated: one driven by revenge and the other by desire for freedom.

Every decision Logan has made for years has been driven by his need for revenge. When his mother was killed it forever altered his life and he wants the family behind her death to pay. As part of his plan Logan begi

This was a captivating story about revenge, loyalty and love. I always look forward to Ms. Godwin's books because of the unique and well-developed characters and storylines. She always seems to put a different spin on things that makes her work stand out from others. I am constantly reevaluating my boundaries and stepping outside of my comfort zone when I read a story of hers. The content isn't the darkest or most shocking, it's in the subtle way

Dirty Lies centers around Kaci and Collin, married because their parents essentially blackmailed them into it...with a contract. Collin is gay and his parents run a ruthless multi-media conglomerate. Both Kaci and Collin are pawns in their parent's sick, twisted, unlawful business dealings.

This is a story about two people heading towards the same goal...plotting out their revenge. The only problem is that their pivotal point is the exact same day and unfortunately only one will come out on top...or will they?

Pam Godwin is pretty amazing at keeping you on the edge of your seat. She has a "taboo" quality to her writing that makes her stories so unique. There is always something so wrong...illegal...unethical, yet you find yourself nodding along and captivated by the "bad" of it all!

Dirty Ties is a romantic suspense of sorts with a fabulous erotic tone! It is a cast of characters who are "tied" together from the very beginning yet unaware of the fine lines pulling them together.
