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…

Return To Me

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…

THE PREDATOR

Gold. The most precious of metals. And someone would kill to get at the dazzling exhibit of priceless Spanish treasure Abby Maitland just landed for the museum. Too bad Zan Duncan had to show up to protect her, but someone’s waiting—and watching. She’s in the crosshairs and she doesn’t have a clue.

THE PREY

Abby is mesmerized by Zan’s untamed strength and his very sexual vibe. From the long dark hair, the thick, hard muscles, and the black leather jacket right on down to the honed fighting skills and the tattoos, Zan is everything a bad boy oughta be . . . and everything Abby has sworn to avoid. Yet he’s a master of subtle seduction, pushing her buttons with tantalizing promises of night after hot night of secret, endless pleasure. Promises that he keeps, to the letter . . .

But danger stalks them both, for a lethal game of deception, greed and murder is underway—a game more sinister than Abby and Zan ever imagined. And when no one can be trusted and no place is safe, passion may be the only thing that can save them . . .
