If you love the MMA romances of Vi Keeland and Kendall Ryan, Sidney Halston’s Worth the Fight series will knock your socks off! In Fighting Dirty, a geek-chic cage fighter proves that appearances can be deceiving . . . and oh-so-tempting. With his preppy clothes and horn-rimmed glasses, Enzo Silva is the last dude anyone expects to find in a mixed martial arts gym. A wealthy Brazilian banker who never had to fight for anything, Enzo’s stuck in the amateur circuit—but he burns to make the pros. Maybe that explains the heat he feels whenever he’s around Jamie Lynn Calhoun. The pint-size, magenta-haired bartender with the Texas drawl is everything he’s not . . . and everything he craves. Tough as nails and independent to a fault, Jamie Lynn—JL to her friends—works hard to pay her bills and keep life simple. Enzo is doing his best to complicate that. Even though she likes to bust his balls, he’s got some kind of a nerdy-hot vibe that makes JL wonder if she might finally be able to let her guard down. It might do the boy some good to spend some time in her world, where blood, sweat, and victory are as sweet as the first taste of real love. Praise for Fighting Dirty “A sexy across-the-tracks romance . . . full of hot chemistry and some serious wooing!”—Heroes and Heartbreakers “If you love cracktastic drama and sexy times, this is for you!”—RT Book Reviews “The characters are entirely lovable, the banter is brilliant, the chemistry between them is indescribable, and the story itself is perfectly romantic. The Worth the Fight series is absolutely worth the read!”—FicCentral “Halston does hot well. . . . If you love an MMA touch and a passionately-in-love hero I recommend Fighting Dirty.”—Harlequin Junkie “A complete swoony escape! It’s a fun, sweet and deliciously sexy story about a woman who is tough and confident on the outside but soft, caring and, yes, a bit damaged on the inside, and a very predictable and too uptight man who discovered that even though they came from two very different worlds, they were perfect for each other.”—TJ Loves to Read “I highly recommend this one and the whole series. It has a great story with angst and some twists, an emotional romance, and some pretty hot sex. What could be more perfect? Looking forward to the next one in the series.”—Devilishly Delicious Book Reviews Praise for the Worth the Fight series “Against the Cage is funny, steamy, scorching—and holy hot MMA fighter, I wanted more! Five stars all the way!”—New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Toni Aleo “A steamy and fun romance that will leave readers begging for more! Sidney Halston is an author to watch!”—New York Times bestselling author Cherry Adair, on Against the Cage “Halston’s new series opener creates an organic and sensual dynamic between Jack and Chrissy that makes an easy buy-in for readers.”—Library Journal (starred review) “Sidney Halston has another knockout with her latest release in the Worth the Fight series. Full Contact is a heavyweight contender in the world of MMA romances.”—Smut Book Junkie Book Reviews Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

If you love strong and sexy MMA fighters then this book is definitely for you.** Fighting for someone’s heart is more challenging than fighting for a title. For a time, many years ago, love had grown, love was made, and in the end … love was lost. The decision to leave had been the worst mistake Shelby Dawson could have ever made.

Back then, he was all hers and she was all his, but now things have changed and he isn’t the same guy she knew. He happens to be the well-known MMA Heavyweight champion and famous bad boy, Matt ‘The Destroyer’ Reynolds, who once before struggled to help his family pay the bills. Now, he has money flowing with each undefeated win and an insurmountable number of women filling his bed. Everything is perfect for the illustrious fighter, until one day it all changes. In walks the girl from his past, the same girl who promised to stick by him but left and never looked back. Their second chance to make things right will not come easy, for when one mistake is made an unwelcome consequence soon follows. Someone out there wants to rip them apart and they won’t stop until Matt and Shelby pay the ultimate price … their love.
Back when there was no such thing as Ultimate Fighting Championship or Mixed Martial Arts, Andy had been studying a number of fighting disciplines for decades. Early on, however, his punching power seemed to reach a plateau. Not being satisfied with the striking force he was generating, Andy began studying the science of body mechanics. In a few weeks, he was able to deliver knockout power by subtle changes in weight shift, bone alignment or modifying the contraction and relaxation of specific muscle groups. Power Punching Secrets is the compilation of these elements in body mechanics. If you have a genuine desire to refine and maximize your punching power, then the "secrets" in this book will not disappoint you. As a matter of reference, if youve read Andys first book, Dirty Fighting, you will find that the principles outlined in Power Punching Secrets lie at the other end of the self defense spectrum.
