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…

All night long …

Tycoon and secret supersoldier Noah Gallagher never expected to beat the Obsidian Group at their evil game—genetically altering runaway kids—but he did, with the help of the brave and beautiful Caro Bishop, the love of his life. The two of them survived that wild adventure, but only just. Noah is crazy for his new bride, knowing all the while that being with him puts her at constant risk. Their love, their closeness, and the intense passion they share are shadowed by fear. Obsidian’s relentless hunt to recapture its rebels will never stop. Noah would die to save her—but now is not the time to tell her that.

Caro’s relaxing on their deluxe honeymoon in Italy, rediscovering treasures of Renaissance art, when they’re invited to the public unveiling of the latest secret sensation in the art world, the newly excavated Cross of Orazio. Caro is beyond thrilled. Noah is not. The guest list is packed with politicians, corporate moguls, celebrities, and entourages. Social media coverage will follow them everywhere.

Caro’s wild to go and Noah can’t deny her pleasure of any kind. They’ll stay off the red carpet. Admire the cross and leave for an erotic rendezvous he’s planned in advance, right down to the rose petals and silken cords. What could go wrong?

Everything. The fabled Cross of Orazio is more than it seems, and now he and Caro are right in the line of fire …

In My Skin

March 8, 2018

Come back to me …

Luke remembers a few things. Just not his last name. Or anyone he ever knew. He knows that he’s a supersoldier, genetically enhanced and loaded up with brain implants. He recently escaped from a year-long hell of captivity, and to protect his family and friends from his tormentors, he blocked most of his memories. Now he needs them back, fast … or he and those he loves will die agonizing deaths.

Luke’s dangerous plan to reconnect with his past—and stay alive in the present—has drawn his enemies’ attention to the tough and sexy Dani LaSalle. He’s duty bound to protect the luscious beauty from the evil pursuing them, but he can’t control the scorching desire she awakens in him.

Dani’s strict routine has been trashed by Luke’s explosive arrival. This rock-hard slab of valiant, smoldering manhood appears out of nowhere, saves her life, spirits her away to his mountain lair, and bewilders her with tales of sadistic researchers and enhanced assassins. Is this gorgeous, problematic sex god just plain crazy—or is she? But hey. Luke can do things with his mind that are just as wild as what he can do with that body. She can’t say no.

And there’s no time to wonder. As their passion flares, Obsidian moves in. Luke and Dani must place their lives and their hearts on the line just to survive …

My Next Breath

April 27, 2017

Zade Ryan. Rebel supersoldier. Nearly superhuman. On a desperate quest to rescue his missing brother Luke by any means possible. To do it, he must seduce the elusive Simone Brightman, inventor of the ingenious and deadly tech used to capture Luke and hold him prisoner, location unknown. Zade will do whatever it takes to get close to Simone. Her mysterious beauty and highly sexual allure have him at a disadvantage, but time is running out . . .

Simone is fighting battles of her own, on her own. Until Zade—six foot four of sinewy muscle and lethal combat skills—rescues her from street thugs and leaves her breathless. His smoldering black eyes and overpowering sensuality—and his seductive invitation to spend one wild, unforgettable night with him—prove too tempting to resist.

Their passionate encounter unleashes scorching desire that neither can control—leaving them vulnerable to their enemies who watch from the shadows and wait. And when they are lured into a trap by a monstrous killer hellbent on their destruction, they must fight with every weapon they have to save Luke, and each other.

Because one night together could never be enough—and they might not live to have another . . .

Stranger, speak softly…

When Caro Bishop shows up at his Seattle headquarters with a dangerous secret agenda, his ordered life is thrown into chaos. Caro is a woman like no other—and her luminously sensual beauty cloaks a mystery he must solve.

Caro’s lying low, evading a false charge of murder. She means to clear her name, and she’ll do whatever it takes to survive—but seducing a man like Noah is more than she bargained for. His amber eyes have the strangest glow when he looks at her—she could swear he sees the secrets of her heart. The desire smoldering in Noah’s eyes awakens her own secret hunger, but Caro has to resist his magnetic pull. Anyone close to her becomes a target. The only right thing to do is run, far and fast, but Caro can’t outrun Noah’s ferocious intensity—or deny the searing passion that explodes between them.

Nothing else matters—until a vicious enemy bent on the ultimate revenge puts his murderous plan into play. Noah and Caro must battle for their lives… and their love…

TOUCH ME

Tess Langley’s been hurt by love before. That’s why the voluptuous brunette prefers to keep her look low-maintenance and concentrate on her work as a massage therapist.

Except Jonah has no intention of sharing Tess with anyone else, and though he’s promised to be a good boy, she has no idea just how good he can be . . .

Bad Boys Next Exit

MELTDOWN

All Jane Duvall wants is to bag another big account for her headhunting firm, even if it means stealing a key employee right out from under sexy hotel CEO Michael “Mac” MacNamara’s gorgeous nose. But Mac can tell that the luscious, elusive Jane is up to no good. He has to find out what game she’s playing–even if it involves giving her a very private tour of the hotel’s finest suite, where she can take whatever she wants from him–and he’ll give her everything he’s got in the process. . .

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

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.

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.

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…

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…
