He can be a slave to his past…or allow her love to free him.

Daughters of Askara, Book 2

There's such a thing as too much change. Emma's sister is mated. Revolution is brewing in her home realm. The last straw: her would-be mate is back from the dead and back under her skin–yet when it comes to the last five years, he's not talking.

Desperate for a chance to start her own life, she answers the queen's call to ensure equality for all of Askara's newly freed slaves. It's the perfect opportunity to escape a heartbreak in the making named Harper.

Harper loses a piece of his fractured soul when Emma walks away. His lies were meant to protect her from torturous years that drove him to the point of madness. Instead, when he comes to her a year later to help avert a crisis in a freed-slave community, the wedge those lies drove between them is firmly in place.

As their new lives collide with old wounds, they race to stop a threat that could not only destroy the queen, but send Harper back to the hell he escaped. Emma must decide if the man she still loves deserves equal rights to her heart.

Product Warnings: This title contains torn pants, ripped gowns, and sand in uncomfortable places. It also includes one overcompensating villain, one gnarly priest, and two battered hearts willing to give this thing called love one last chance.

The hookup from hell…or the ride of his life?

Leon's drifter lifestyle gives him the freedom to attend as many music festivals as his heart desires. Even the ones that leave him covered in feathers. Wet feathers, thanks to the rain as he hitchhikes back to his hostel. When he's offered a ride by a good-looking man in a Porsche, Leon thinks it's his lucky night. Until he discovers his savior from the storm hides a dark secret: he's a werewolf.

At first glance, Christoph thinks the shaggy stranger walking Berlin's streets is a rogue werewolf. By the time he realizes his mistake, it's too late for both of them. Forced to turn Leon into a monster to save his life, Christoph still has to suffer his pack leader's brutal punishment for endangering them all.

Leon awakens, horrified by what he's become–but it's his lover's fate that spurs him to action. Freeing Christoph is easy, but the aftermath complicates everything as they go on the run, desperate to uncover the secrets their pack leader is hiding. Secrets the pack will kill to protect…

Then there are all those unfulfilled items on her to-do list, like that threesome she and her husband, Ty, used to fantasize about. It fell by the wayside, right along with their neglected bag of sex toys.

Her birthday dinner starts out like any other…then her present arrives at the table. Marc, an old college friend, whose edgy persona tickles her in all the right places. And that's not all. Ty's reserved a room at Paolo's Playhouse–for all three of them.

By the time the playroom door closes behind them, Ty's and Marc's intimate touches and wicked whispers have roused her hormones to a fever pitch. But when kiss comes to nipple clamps, Shannon's not sure she has the courage to step off the edge of fantasy and fall headlong into reality…

Behind the scenes, beneath the covers…

Hollywood Heat, Book 3

Jenna Byers approaches her first day as a background actor on Sexy M.D. with one goal in mind–impress the right people with her acting, make connections, and prove she's a hard worker. Things go sideways when an up-close-and-personal encounter with the uber-sexy lead ends with Jenna flat on her butt, and she's noticed for all the wrong reasons.

In all his years of acting, there's only one thing Micah Watley hasn't done: accidentally punch an extra in the face. Going against protocol, he hunts her down to apologize and discovers a rare phenomenon in the entertainment industry. A sweet, uncorrupted-by-Hollywood woman, whose smile grabs him by the heart–and other not-so-innocent body parts–and won't let go.

Their attraction is instant and intense, and Micah finds himself desperate to believe the woman with the beautiful smile, hot body and naughty mind wants him, not the doors he could open for her. When the press catches on, twisting Jenna and Micah's love story into a Hollywood scandal, they're forced to fight for their happy ending–both on and off camera.

Product Warnings: This book contains a hero and a heroine who don't know a household surface they won't get horizontal on. Sometimes vertical too. Counters, sinks, showers, sofas, washing machines, beds, walls…they've got all the angles covered.

Quinn Lawton's long, grinding search for his missing twin has turned up nothing…until Bethany rekindles his hope.
