      She must tame a Highland barbarian...before he steals her heart.

      Rogue, Book 1


      With the death of her elderly husband, the Marquess Newburn, Jillian Alton is relieved that she will never have to endure another forced marriage. Until his long-lost son reappears to claim his title and holdings.

      Left penniless, Jillian reluctantly accepts a tidy sum from the Prince of Wales to "refine" a Scottish Highlander who has inherited an English title--a man who shakes her resolve to never again let a man close enough to snare her in unwanted wedlock.

      Ian MacLeod never planned to set foot in England, but the breakup of the clan system has left him in need of claiming the profits of his inherited English lands to support his people. When he meets the very proper Lady Newburn, he is intrigued...and determined to melt her icy heart.

      It shouldn't be much of a challenge. After all, he's never met a lass who didn't quite willingly succumb to him. But he quickly learns that the beautiful, auburn-haired Jillian is no mooning maiden.

      And there's something about her stepson that raises the hair on the back of his neck--a clear signal of danger that has never proved him wrong...

      Together, they're magic. Now to capture it in a bottle...

      Worth It, Book 3


      For once in his errant life, Rhett Worth is ready to prove to his older brothers he's more than good looks and a woman-melting smile. Except he's screwed up. And it's about to hit the fan as he prepares to tell them he's failed to deliver the master perfumer, Michel Durand, to create Worth Luxury's signature scent.

      T
      hen salvation walks through the boardroom door, all wrapped up in a petite, seductive package.

      Gabriella Durand is prepared to beg the Worths to give her capricious father another chance. Instead, she finds the devastatingly handsome Rhett Worth offering it to her as if he'd planned it all along. And Gabriella, hungry to emerge from her father's shadow, jumps at it.

      Soon they're in Maui to hunt for the perfect scent...and find it in the tropical breeze that washes across their entwined bodies.

      Opposites attract...and drive each other crazy.

      Freelance Magic, Book 1


      Eight years ago, wizard Ashley Brandon thought his mentor was above the temptation to misuse magic. He was wrong, and the aftermath left him scarred. And determined to never again let anyone close.

      When he's assigned to a task force protecting an ancient relic, he butts heads with the infuriating, charismatic Frederick "Charles" Greer. The man is completely unreasonable. And so is Ashley's gut response to his outrageous flirting.

      Greer was only supposed to temporarily consult on the task force, but his admittedly unorthodox views on team building put him at odds with Brandon, one of the most attractive, frustrating men he's ever met. The mission's success requires complete cooperation, so Greer makes the first move to ease the tension.

      An apology leads to bickering, which unexpectedly leads them to the bedroom. But as that tension shifts into something more fierce, a brush with the relic's power turns everything upside down. Leaving the mission--and Brandon's heart--in even greater jeopardy.

      Product Warnings
      Contents may contain sartorial choices both exceptional and asinine, deception, thievery, magic, naughty language, and one hell of a MacGuffin.

      She is the one woman they both need. If they can catch her.

      Ethan Stone and Gabriel Pryor are successful, wealthy, handsome--and single. But not for long. As Colony descendants, they are required to form a mated triad with a woman with Colony bloodlines--or they'll be forced to do the unthinkable. Move back inside the community's walls and accept whomever the elders choose.
      When their hired P.I. comes through with a candidate, they're both relieved--and in a rush to close the deal. Except their chosen lady's bloodline comes with a streak of independence as quicksilver fast as her bike messenger pedals.

      Ordinarily, a big tip and amorous note wouldn't impress Mariella Amorini, but there's something that draws her to the two men she can't explain. The shocking truth of her heritage sends her reeling--straight into the safe harbor of Ethan and Gabriel's bed.

      The sense of belonging is warm, and the sex is hot, but as more truths become entangled with lies, it's clear someone from The Colony isn't the least bit interested in the threesome's long-term happiness. And it'll take revealing their deepest vulnerabilities to forge a bond strong enough to endure the test.

      Product Warnings
      Two alpha males looking for their mate. One sassy bike messenger who's not entirely certain she fits the description. Seduction tactics include wine, dessert, Cary Grant movies, heartfelt confession, laughter, kissing, and sex. Lots of really hot sex.

      Myrsina knows the stories. As one of the oldest of the Grimm, she had a hand in writing most of them, but only she knows the dark origin of the Seven Bloody Sisters. It springs from the place of her birth--and her death. A place of pain and misery to which she plans to never return. Unless forced.

      When Luc appears on her doorstep, her heart twists with suppressed longing for the man who can never be hers. The only man who can make her do the impossible--go home.

      Luc may be blind, but through their unique, bittersweet connection, even he can see that the task laid before them is ripping Sina's soul apart. This time it isn't as simple as fighting a demon that has escaped from the netherplains.

      Sina must go back in time--to that cursed ground--and right a wrong that she unknowingly brought about. To write a new ending to a story that may give them both a chance at happily ever after. Assuming they survive.

Still, she enjoys her holiday job as the Sugarplum Fairy for a local department store, and when her paying job leads to a chance to moonlight as the Tooth Fairy, Melissa jumps at the chance. There's just one problem: the head resting on the pillow belongs to the handsome Rafe Damon--not his five-year-old daughter.

But a fairy tale romance must eventually face the cold light of day, and Melissa and Rafe must work to achieve their happily ever after.

      When he unwraps her love, he uncovers her secret...

      Just before Christmas, trauma makeup artist Abigail Fox packs up her bag of tricks and travels to Crested Butte, Colorado, to help an actress who has lived in seclusion since a disfiguring accident.

      The lodge owner irritates her with his suspicions that she's only out to hook her name to a star. However, his broad shoulders and quiet intensity make her weak in the knees.

      A former stuntman familiar with Hollywood politics, Brady is sure Abigail has ulterior motives. Why else would she travel far from home over a holiday if there wasn't something in it for her? Yet gradually he realizes that with Abigail, what you see is what you get--a caring woman who only wants to help accident victims rediscover life.

      Sheltered in Brady's beautiful, snowbound world, warmed by his holiday wish that has nothing to do with Santa Claus, Abigail finds herself falling into his arms. But if he learns her terrible secret, the love that's catching fire could blow up in her face.
