Hot Night

April 4, 2018

She’s a trouble magnet…

Abby Maitland has landed the chance of a lifetime—to work on a dazzling exhibit of priceless shipwrecked Spanish treasure at the Silver Fork Museum, and she isn’t going to fumble it. But when a nightmare date and a lost house-key land her in a tight spot, a sexy locksmith comes to her rescue.

Zan makes her heart pound and her toes curl, but she’s seen his type before. He doesn’t fit her dating profile, not with that battered leather jacket, those tattoos, that wicked, bad boy smolder in his eyes. She’s finished with guys like him. Been there, done that.

Problem is, they can’t seem to keep their hands off each other…

An indecent proposition…

Zan Duncan has gotten into more than his share of trouble in his time, and it shows. Maybe the succulently gorgeous Abby Maitland doesn’t think he’s boyfriend material, but that’s no reason not to give in to the desire that roars between them. So he offers her a scorching, no-holds-barred secret affair. No one had to know, not her neighbors, not her boss. He would just sneak into her house by night, drive her mad with pleasure, and melt away with the dawn, leaving her aching, tingling. Exhausted.

What could possibly go wrong?

Abby can’t resist his seduction—but there is a ruthless monster in Silver Fork who wants that buccaneer’s gold for himself—and Abby and Zan are the perfect scapegoats for his evil plan. But they have no clue they’re in the crosshairs—at least not until people around them start to die…

Now Abby and Zan must race against time to stop a vicious killer…and the only ones they can trust are each other…

Behind Closed Doors

June 4, 2013

EVERY MOVE YOU MAKE . . .

Surveillance expert Seth Mackey knows everything about the women that his millionaire boss toys with–and tosses aside. Raine Cameron is something different. Night after night, Seth watches her on a dozen different video screens. Her vulnerable beauty haunts him and her fresh innocence stirs a white-hot passion that he can barely control. Raine is pure temptation, but Seth has something more important to take care of first. He’s convinced that his boss, Victor Lazar, is responsible for his half-brother’s murder. He cannot put his secret investigation at risk, but he can’t stop wanting her–craving her–and soon he knows he can’t let Victor have her. For Raine may be Victor’s next victim…

EVERY BREATH YOU TAKE . . .

Raine knows she’s being watched–but no one can see the secrets in her heart. She has reasons of her own to seek revenge on Victor Lazar, and she will, despite her fear–and the distracting presence of Seth Mackey. Though Raine has little experience with men, Seth’s fiercely masculine good looks and animal sensuality stir her most erotic fantasies when she’s alone . . . and lead her to a bold plan. Offering her body to him, surrendering totally to his ruthless desire might well push her beyond all emotional limits–and beyond fear itself.

Standing In The Shadows

June 4, 2013

In Behind Closed Doors, you were introduced to Seth’s partners, the sexy and dangerous McCloud brothers…and now it’s Connor McCloud’s turn to face the fire…

She haunts his dreams…

Ex-FBI agent Connor McCloud barely survived being set up to die by a trusted friend and fellow agent, Ed Riggs. That disaster cost him not only his partner Jesse’s life, but his hopes of winning the love of Erin, Ed’s beautiful, studious daughter. She would never be with the man who had put her father in prison.

Forever out of reach…

Erin is hanging on by her fingernails. Her father is disgraced and imprisoned, her mother and sister are falling apart, the scandal has cost her a job she loved as a museum curator, and the man she’s secretly craved for years is responsible for all of it. When an opportunity comes up to appraise a trove of priceless Celtic artifacts for a rich, reclusive, she leaps at the chance. Maybe things are starting to look up.

Then Connor discovers that his old nemesis, Kurt Novak, is back, hungry for payback…and that Erin is his weapon of choice. He has no choice but to leap into action, whether Erin trusts him or not, whether she hates him or not. Nothing matters but protecting the woman he loves from a vengeful, sadistic killer…

Return To Me

June 3, 2013

Still craving his touch…

Ellen Kent never forgot her crush on the town’s sexy bad boy, Simon Riley—but God, has she tried. It’s been years since Simon blasted out of LaRue, leaving the fiery mess he made there far behind—as well as Ellen and her broken heart.

She’s grown up, moved on, gotten engaged to a safe, respectable guy. She works hard running a Bed & Breakfast in her family mansion. She’s completely over Simon—but she certainly wasn’t prepared to have him show up out of nowhere and ask to rent a room from her. Tall, dark, tough, fascinating. As smoldering hot as he ever was. And just as seductive.

But to chase him away would be to admit defeat, right? And she wasn’t afraid of him…

He swore he’d never return…

Simon Riley has spent his adult life as a war-zone photojournalist, and he’s been in plenty of hot spots, but there’s no place so dangerous to him as the small, sleepy town of LaRue. This place didn’t want him then, and it doesn’t want him now, but Simon’s Uncle Gus recently died under mysterious circumstances, and Simon has to know more. And he can’t resist a chance to see Ellen again. She’s the only good memory he has of this hellhole. So sweet. So wild.

He hadn’t bargained on how sweet, or how wild. Enough to make him lose his head and do something really stupid…like start falling in love with her all over again.

But LaRue is full of deadly secrets. As their passion rages out of control, someone lurks in the shadows who will go to any lengths to keep those secrets hidden.

Now Ellen and Simon might pay for the truth with their lives…

Out of Control

June 3, 2013

In Behind Closed Doors and Standing in the Shadows, Shannon McKenna introduced the McCloud Brothers: intense, rugged, super-sexy, and deliciously sensual. Now, Davy McCloud is about to meet a woman he can’t trust–or live without . . . 

Don’t get too close…

That’s P.I. Davy McCloud’s unwavering rule when it comes to women. He likes to keep his world strictly under control. But when the seductive and fascinating Margot Vetter starts teaching at the gym next door, his ironclad rules go straight to hell. He can’t control the hunger she awakens in him, or the powerful instinct to protect her…and then claim her as his own.

On the run…

Margot’s been framed for murder. Broke and desperate, she has no choice but to ask Davy McCloud’s help. But the closer she gets to this sexy, enigmatic man, the harder it becomes to hold anything back from him…at all. Or even remember why she’s trying to.

But it’s a bad time to be blindsided by passion, because the monstrous evil lurking in Margot’s past is running her down fast. Soon they’ll be fighting back to back, just to stay alive…

Extreme Danger

June 3, 2013

Nick Ward was one of Connor McCloud’s fellow FBI agents. Now he’s working on an investigation of his own, but Tam Steele and the McClouds always have his back…

Trained assassin…or clueless innocent?

That’s the dilemma facing Nick Ward when he drags the gorgeous, dripping, naked girl out of the swimming pool at midnight on the deserted vacation island. But innocent or not, she’s pure bad luck for Nick. Even if she’s not a merciless honeypot assassin, her presence at this top secret meeting will destroy his long-planned undercover operation, and probably get them both killed. And her luscious beauty just makes it that much worse…

She won’t back down…

Skinny-dipping in a neighbor’s pool is about as naughty as hopeless good girl Becca Cattrall has ever tried to be. But suddenly she’s at the mercy of a grim, dangerous stranger with a foul mouth and smoldering eyes…a man who steals her breath and makes her heart stutter…a man scheduled to meet with a mafiya boss who will never let her live to tell the tale.

Nick impulsively blows his cover to save Becca’s skin, but he can’t keep her hidden forever…and he can’t stay away from her, either. And now, to make matters worse, she wants to save him, too. So when hell comes calling, she’s not running….

Ultimate Weapon

June 3, 2013

Ever since she was introduced as Mara in Behind Closed Doors, the mysterious and prickly Tamara Steele has been working in the background, slowly gaining the McClouds’ trust. Now it’s time for her to step into the spotlight, for her wildest adventure yet…

A life of lies….

Covert operative Val Janos has spent his whole life in the shadows. He’s as handsome as he is lethal, trained to use sex as a tool and a weapon. Which makes him the perfect operative to hunt down the beautiful-but-deadly Tamara Steele.

Too much to lose…

Tam is wanted for her misdeeds worldwide, sought by law enforcement agencies and criminal syndicates alike, but now she has tiny Rachel to worry about, a toddler she’s rescued from organ traffickers. She keeps up her guard even with the McClouds, the only people she dares to call friends, and she has no time for flirtation, whether Janos is just a gigolo lightweight, or something far more ominous.

But the passion that suddenly ignites at Val’s touch takes her utterly by surprise.

Val, too, is blindsided, and not only by ravenous lust. He feels for her, more than he’s ever felt anything, But Tam’s enemies have Val in a vice grip. Daddy Novak has discovered Val’s weak spot—Imre, the old man who befriended Val when he was a street kid, who taught him what mercy felt like. Imre will suffer horribly if Val fails to deliver Tam into Novak’s grasp.

No matter what Val does now, he’s damned…but these two don’t know how to give up the fight—not even with Death himself…
