I’m in writing hell which is short for my characters are not listening to me. The only thing that’s saving me is I just got word that Inferno came in #9 at Readfree.ly for the 50 Best Indie Books of 2018.
You have no idea how exciting this is. Inferno about broke me to write it and to know that so many others connected to the story is simply amazing.
Book 7 in the Hotter Than Hell series is now available and the reviews are fantastic. Like most of my books, I worried. I worried that readers wouldn’t understand why I told the story how I did. Inferno is written from my heart and it pushes the boundaries of love. You met Mak and Moon in Heat. They’re the couple who started it all. If I’m honest they already had their Happily Ever After but it doesn’t tell the whole story. Moon is a criminal and he’s dragging Mak right along with him. When you live the life they do, danger is around every corner and someone must pay the price. That person is Madison or “Mak” as she prefers to be called. I love Mak because she’s so strong but everyone has their limits and Inferno pushes Mak to be someone else. As you know, in real life that doesn’t work and I had no intention of letting it work in this book. Pick up your copy today and discover what true love is and what it takes to protect those you care about.
I’m so excited about this book. It’s much darker than the previous Hotter Than Hell novels but I had to tell Austin’s story his way. You met Austin in Sizzle and I’ve been thinking about his book for a long time. He’s complex and it took a very special woman to bring him around. Melina is kickass and has had a rough life. When Austin kidnaps her it only gets rougher.
What I really love about Melina is her inability to give up. She’s a fighter and proves it.
Austin Miller, the enforcer for Southern California’s crime boss, takes over after his boss and mentor dies. He’s set on revenge against the people responsible for Victor’s death and he’ll stop at nothing to get what he wants.
Melina Fernandez has never wanted anything to do with her brother’s criminal organization and has nothing to do with the hit he ordered on Southern California’s leader. She’s caught in the middle of a deadly game and her brother plans to sell her to the highest bidder as soon as possible.
When Melina is kidnapped by Austin, her worst nightmares are realized. It’s not her body he wants, it’s her flesh and her sanity. Trapped in a dark basement for days she decides to unravel her life story while Austin works on mutilating her skin with a tattoo machine.
When Moon, the crime lord of Arizona steps into help, Melina might find her salvation. The clock is ticking and her brother now wants her dead. Austin isn’t a man for games but he does want Melina at any cost, even his life.

Years ago, while watching Sons of Anarchy, I asked myself why I enjoyedÂ the show. Violence, horrible bad guys that you cheer for, crooked cops and on and on. SOA wasÂ like a bloody train wreck that I couldn’t look away from. My husband and I would discuss the ins and outs of the plot, the characters we loved and those we hated. Bottom lineâ€”Sons made usÂ ponder.
The idea for HEAT was born around the time Sons of Anarchy went off the air. And, who better to write about bad guys you love and cops you hate than a retired police detective. The Hotter Than Hell series isÂ not fan fiction. There are no correlations and the romance is the seed factor of all three books. They take place in the hot summer months in Arizona.
HEAT – You have Moon, the head of Arizona’s largest crime syndicate, then SIZZLE – Gomez, Moon’sÂ enforcerÂ and BURN – the newest bad guy, Dax, the president of a skinhead motorcycle gang who’s trying to turn things around.
I knew when writing these stories that not everyone would be able to accept bad men as the good guys. I want these books to make you ponder.
Hereâ€™s an awesome review on BURN that I nabbed from Amazon. This reader feels me and she has an amazing way with words.
“This was the first Holly Roberts Book I’ve read and I wasn’t sure what to expect. All I was told in advance was that it “sizzled” — appropos for a book called “Burn,” I guess. I was taken aback by the first chapter, which had a tragedy and a murder. NOT my usual romance book! But after taking a day to digest it, I read on. And read on. And read on. Finished the whole thing in about a day and a half, which surprised me.
Dax and Sofia are not your warm, cuddly, sympathetic characters. In his first chapter, Dax commits a murder. In her first chapter (the book is done via alternating voices), Sofia declares her intention to commit murder. Okay, then! So much for characters I can identify with. But as the story goes on, you understand just why these two hardened characters turned out the way they did, and the reader discovers, as they do, that there’s more to life than they have given it credit for.
It’s not a pretty book — the violence and the sex are graphic, and angels don’t sing and unicorns don’t appear when Dax and Sofia hook up. But my source was right. They DO sizzle.
This was good as as standalone book, even though it’s the third in the series. I liked it well enough and am intrigued enough by characters who played bit parts in this book to go back and buy the first two.” ~ T. Lorenz
If you think you can handle these very bad men, I think you’ll love this series!
She’s an ex-cop and he’s the head of a crime syndicate. Heat turns to sizzle and hearts combust when they find themselves wanting more than a few hot nights between cool sheets.
After a shoulder injury ends her respectable career as a police officer, Mak also known as Madison Abigail Kinlock turns to the seedy world of private investigations by default. Now her job consists of cheating douchebags and baby daddies dodging child support. Things can’t get much worse.
Moon controls Arizona’s largest crime syndicate. His bronze skin and blue eyes leave a girl breathless even when that girl knows he’s bad news. Moon doesn’t give a flying fig what Mak thinks; he wants her—ex-cop, bad attitude, and all.
How does she resist the dark side when her body craves Moon’s searing touch? Things only get hotter in Phoenix when Mak finds herself in a deadly situation and must turn to Moon for help.
I’m hard at work on book 2, SIZZLE. I’m hoping for a spring release. I don’t want to give too much away but Gomez is as bad and yummy as they come. It will take a special woman to find the good in him and I have just the woman to do it.
Here’s the blurb:
The Arizona Desert sizzles and it’s hotter than hell.
Alex Gomez is the enforcer for the largest crime syndicate in Arizona and makes no excuses. His hands are covered in blood and the lines between right and wrong blurred.
Celina Thomas has a deadly secret. Only money can fix her problem and she needs a lot of it, quickly. She’s gifted with a body and face that men are willing to pay for. She makes the decision to enter the world of high class escorts but her heart cries at the injustice.
One night with Alex and Celina’s plan turns upside down.
One night with Celina and Alex’s heart of ice begins to melt.
Celina’s secret could kill them both. Can she trust Alex and place her life in his hands? Can Alex let her escape regardless of the consequences?
Passion ignites as Alex and Celina sizzle with burning need while death lurks on the sweltering Phoenix horizon.
I’m working on the yummy parts of the first book in my new Hotter Than Hell series: “Heat” Here’s a sneak peek…
I once asked my mother what first attracted her to my father. She said it was his eyes—the kindness in his eyes. To understand Moon’s eyes you need to see the complete package.
His mind is sharp; he easily reads people. He reads me like he sees inside my mind and plucks out my thoughts.
His skin is smoke; it’s the only way to describe it now that I’ve had some time to look at him. If I knew nothing about him and saw him on the street, I would think Hawaiian or Samoan.
He’s exotic and his eyes grab you. Blue eyes have never been my thing. And the word “kind” can’t be used in conjunction with Moon’s eyes. They’re intense—treacherous—deadly. Then sometimes, when he looks at me, they go steamy hot. The kind of hot that says I want to lick you from the bottom to the top and then eat you slowly. So slowly, you won’t stop screaming until you’re completely undone.
I’m an ex-cop and will always have a cop’s heart.
Moon’s a criminal and controls a criminal empire. I want him and it’s playing havoc with my soul.
