Captain Matt Peterson prides himself on being able to handle anything...until he winds up as the guardian of his baby niece, Lulu. Two years and six nannies later, his well-ordered existence is in chaos. Still, he’s all Lulu has. Except, well...there is an aunt...

Darcy Butler has spent the last three years in prison for beating up her abusive brother-in-law. Her only regret is that she didn’t hurt him worse and stop him from killing her sister in a drunken car crash six months later. But now, Darcy just wants to rebuild her life. Starting with finding her sister’s child.

But Matt doesn't want an ex-con with a record for violence anywhere near Lulu. Unfortunately, he can’t seem to keep away from Darcy, himself. Despite their differences, their chemistry is combustible...and the sex is incredible! Still, it can’t possibly last. Can it?

Each book in the Cutting Loose series is STANDALONE:
* Falling for the Bad Girl
* Blackmailing the Bad Girl
* The Bad Girl and the Baby


“Opposites attract, redemption and revelations all play their part in Darcy and Matt’s journey and whilst there’s some build up to the sexy-time, it’s worth it as in Croft-style it’s hot and heartfelt with a nice splash of humour.” –Nocola A., Goodreads

The Bad Girl and the Baby was a sexy, funny and emotional read and had me rooting for Darcy and Matt from the beginning.” –Urvashi H., Goodreads

I loved this story. It is a great written story with two great characters. I loved how Darcy was a tough strong woman but also has a soft side which she doesn't show very often. The plot is great and it is all combined together in a great book that I truly enjoyed reading.” –Lili B., Goodreads

“Loved this one!!  It's a wonderfully written story with some pretty amazing characters and a story that will break your heart and give you hope at the same time.” –Bette H., Goodreads

The last in Nina Croft’s Cutting Loose series is the one I’ve been anticipating the most and, having spent time at her majesty’s pleasure thanks to her potential suitor’s brother, I was intrigued how Darcy’s path to a HEA would play out.

“You like the rules. I like breaking them.”

As I’ve come to expect when I...
