Giving him just enough rope…to tie her up in knots

There’s something wildly enchanting about the columnist who arrives at Ben Cannon’s golf resort. He’s felt this magnetic pull only once before, for a bespectacled brunette back in college. That woman was nothing like this platinum blonde from New York–confident, poised…and hitting on him like crazy. Is she really interested in him, or merely seeking fodder for her Dating Diva column?

Just one wrong move from Ben, one more disappointment, and Jillian will finally be able to stop obsessing about her college crush, leave town, and get on with her life. Except the more rope she gives him to hang himself, the more he ties her up in knots. Every move he makes is the right one, both in bed and out of it.

Shaken to her college-nerd core, Jillian begins to wonder if giving him a taste of love-’em-and-leave-’em is what she wants after all.

Warning: Fore! This title contains explicit sex, and a love story hazardous to your hankie supply. Oh, and exploding toads.

Liberal vegan meets corporate carnivore. What could possibly go wrong?

Thomas Stone has one sacred rule: Don’t Date The Boss. Ever. So when he finds out his new employer is the man he took to bed his first night in town, he’s less than happy. He doesn’t need any more complications in his life, and the way Phil makes him feel definitely qualifies as a complication. Especially since he can’t seem to keep his hands off the man.

Philip Sorrells is thrilled to discover that the new bartender his manager hired for his restaurant, The Happy Onion, is the aggressive little blond he slept with once and can’t forget. Thom is Phil’s wet dream come true, from his angelic face to his fiery temper. For the first time, Phil hears the siren song of monogamy, and he’s tempted to follow it.

When Thom leaves The Happy Onion for a job managing an upscale nightclub, it looks like a chance for him and Phil to be together without the whole boss/employee thing hanging over them. Instead, Thom’s new position brings out previously unsuspected differences in their world views. Differences with the power to destroy their fragile bond.

So how will this nature-loving tree-hugger and corporate-ladder climber navigate this political minefield in the name of love? Very carefully.

Warning, this book contains bad language, good music, vegan personal care products and lots of hot, dirty mansex.

A romantic game of chicken–and they’re both too stubborn to flinch.

Lucy Fairchild, lawyer and heiress to the Fairchild fortune, has just had the worst day of her life. Her father has found the perfect man for her to marry. Yes, she’s thirty and single, but that doesn’t give her father the right to run her life. She’ll choose her own husband–someday.

Jake Dalton is struggling to make his fledgling construction company a success. Ever mindful of his father’s derogatory comments that he’d never amount to anything, he’s spent his entire life trying to prove he’s not a failure.

From their first meeting on a construction site, verbal sparks fly. Their argument escalates into a dare for a date–and the game is on. Lucy thinks Jake is the perfect fake boyfriend to parade around in the hopes of getting her father off her back. Jake is amused by the chance to annoy both Lucy and her dad–he doesn’t intend to take the dating thing seriously.

But the heart is a fickle thing, and not above playing dirty. In their quest to prove something–to each other, or maybe to themselves–they find themselves building a case…for love.

And suddenly all the rules have changed.

Warning: This book does NOT contain hot monkey lovin’, threesome action or anyone swinging from the chandeliers (sorry ‘bout that). It does contain sexy romancin’ on a trampoline under the stars, fun one liners, a dog named Rascal and a smokin’ hot construction worker named Jake that the author is convinced you’re going to fall madly in love with. She dares you to read it.

One death after another–will there be any customers left for Kate’s decorating business?

A Kate Bart Mystery

British-born Kate Bart, the interior decorator in this New Jersey town, helps her friend, Dutch, with his P.I. investigations. He’s decided that he’d like to be more than just a pal, so things get hot when they’re working together. She’s been a widow for some time now, but although she’s attracted to him, she still needs time to learn how to love again.

The arrival of the new sexy undertaker causes a ripple in the traditional-minded townspeople. She slinks around meeting Tom Yoast, the general store owner. What’s she after? He’s certainly no trophy husband-to-be.

“You’ll have ta deal with two dead people very soon,” Carmella, an elderly Italian psychic, warns Kate. Just what she wanted, something more to scare her as she and Dutch search for clues to solve the mysterious deaths. They follow leads, some to dead ends, but in the end the perpetrators are brought to justice.

No explicit sex, but you will find relationships that die a sudden death and relationships that take a warm turn–see what happens in a small quiet country town.

From wicked lust to unexpected love, it’s an exhilarating ride…with a little kink on the side!

Angie Forester has a simple plan: Find a wealthy husband and enjoy a life of luxury. But when her plan leads her to Bathshire Stables, things get…complicated.

Being sold as a pony-girl isn’t quite what she expected, even if it does amount to basically the same thing–trading her body to a rich man for a lot of money. The kinky sex is just an unexpected perk.

Then fireman Jack Grayson takes the reins. He’s part-time groomsman, full-time sexy…and big-time poor. The absurdly handsome fireman has everything she wants except the financial security she craves.

But Angie’s heart has other ideas about the value of money–and love.

Warning: This title contains the following: explicit sex, anal sex, bondage & discipline, pony-play.

Kenoe: A sexy lethal weapon. Shinju: Ditto–with more dangerous curves.
Vampire Council of Ethics Book Three

Kenoe Hatsept is in a quandary. The handsome elite Seeker spent years training for a single burning goal: Revenge. Now that the object of his attention has been brought to justice, what’s next? Japan, the one place that has always called to him, sounds like the perfect place to relax, search his soul and plan out the rest of his life.

Instead he finds his head, and his hands, full of a woman who’s sharper than she appears on the surface…in more ways than one. And she’s hip deep in trouble.

Shinju Maruyama just wants to keep her profile low and go about her business. But the long-toothed people just don’t want to let her keep her family secrets. It’ll take all her skill with her brain and her blades to change their minds. There’s something strange and irresistible about Kenoe, and it scares the hell out of her. But she just can’t seem to shake him.

For Kenoe, endangering his life to help her bring the bad guys to heel is easy. Revealing his true nature to her risks far more–his heart.

Warning: This title contains scenes of kick-buttery, vampire smack-downs and graphic sex, including but not limited to hot ninja love and culinary orgasms.
