Maybe “if” isn’t such a bad word. Maybe it’s full of possibility. It’s that word that prefaces taking a chance. It’s a word that precludes infinite possibility. “If” means nothing is certain. And maybe that’s a good thing.



Nina G. Jones is the author of DEBT, the Strapped series and Gorgeous Rotten Scoundrel. This is her first novel under the name N.G. Jones.

She resides in Milwaukee, WI with her husband and two fur brats.

DEBT by Nina G. Jones is a HOT, twisted, page turner.

“THRILLING . . . EMOTIONAL . . . AMAZING . . . Words can’t describe the feelings I have after finishing what was one of the most fantastic novels I have read to date.”—Summer’s Book Blog
“I was left sad at the end of this novel not only because the story ended, but because this work raised expectation for dark erotica to a completely new level.”- Amazon Review

“The author has created a masterpiece that has all the gravity and solidity of a first rate epic novel that contains raw sex scenes within the context of a a richly woven story.”—Amazon Review

I don’t know what I was thinking when I hired someone to attack me. Maybe I was bored, or lonely, or there was a void so deep inside of me that I needed something explosive to fill it.

It was supposed to be safe. A thrill. A way to break through the monotony of everyday life. It was an illusion of danger that I could walk away from as soon as it was over.

Except that it wasn’t. Because I had been in danger long before I ever invited it into my life.

My mission is almost complete. The bubbling boil of vengeance that heats my blood might finally simmer.

She is the last piece of the puzzle. Once I destroy her, everyone who ever hurt me will have paid their debt.

It was supposed to be quick and easy, but as soon as I met her it got complicated.

Very complicated.

Have you read the Strapped Series by Nina G. Jones?

“I fell in love with these characters immediately. And I fell in love with Jones’ writing immediately. She is able to ensnare every single sense and light them on fire with even the simplest of scenes and that ability combined with the incredible depth built into these characters and their story makes for a series that stands alone amongst its contemporaries.”—Lightning Room Literary Reviews

“Bottom line , if you have yet to read the series DO IT NOW !! If it was too crazy for you and you gave up COME BACK AND TRY AGAIN YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY!” -Amazon Reviewer

“Wow what a storm of events. I feel like I ran a marathon.” -Amazon Reviewer

By all appearances, Shyla Ball has an enviable life: a loyal boyfriend, a great job, and family that loves her. She doesn’t realize how deeply unsatisfied she is until she has an embarrassing encounter with a handsome stranger at a coffee shop. Taylor Holden, a successful businessman, takes a sudden special interest in her and offers her a job she cannot refuse. Soon after, she learns there is much more to this intensely private man than meets the eye. He is hiding many painful secrets, including why it is that he has seemingly plucked her out of obscurity for such a lucrative position. Her “perfect” world is turned upside down by her infatuation towards Taylor and in just a couple of months, her life looks nothing like it did before. While she is frightened by the changes she sees in herself, she cannot resist the lure of Taylor Holden. As Shyla slowly gains Taylor’s trust, she learns of his complex history and how it has molded him into the person he has become. When elements of Taylor’s secret past resurface and threaten to destroy them, Shyla finds out there may be more to Taylor’s story than even he is aware of. Strapped is a story of passion, manipulation, obsession, and family secrets.

In the mood for some hot, snarky humor?

Check out Gorgeous Rotten Scoundrel, a standalone novel by Nina G. Jones

“Gorgeous Rotten Scoundrel is officially on my top romance list for this year.”—Danielle of This Redhead LOVES Books

“I loved this book. Easily a 5 star for me. I love a book where it is written so perfectly that you feel every emotion.”—Give Me Books

“Gorgeous, Sassy, Witty, Flirty, Ballsy and Smoking hot. . . . .grab me a washcloth I am ready to give a bed bath!”—All Booked Out

He was a pig, a jerk, selfish, callous, crude, tactless, prone to outbursts and gorgeous. The kind of gorgeous where you didn’t even attempt to hide the fact that you were staring. I knew the type: His entire life he has coasted on his good looks, artificial charm, and sex appeal. Everyone wanted to be him or be ON him. I had been hurt by jerks like him before. He was like those guys but far worse.

I was the unfortunate sucker to be offered a gig I desperately needed as his live-in chef for a Summer in the Hamptons. But I wasn’t like the other girls—the models and socialites who came through the revolving door of his bedroom. I would bite the bullet, take the job, deal with his sexist comments, his expectation that I would fawn over him, and have no problem letting the door hit my ass on the way out when I was done with the gig.

Then something unexpected happened that changed everything and I realized that there may be more to him than the labels I had affixed to his character. Maybe.

But if he really wanted me, it wasn’t going to be easy, not like everything else in his life. He was going to have to work, I was going to make him miserable. He was going to hate wanting me just as much as I hated myself for wanting him back.
