Sue Finley murdered people...on paper. As a mystery writer, she knew all the angles, who did what and why. The only thing she couldn't explain was...well, men. Dating was like diving into a box of chocolates: sometimes the sweetest-looking specimens were candy-coated poison. After a breakup with a bank robber and a divorce from a cross-dresser, she gave it up for good. Then came Detective Jason Dodd.

Raised in foster homes, Jason swore never to need anyone as much as the parents who'd abandoned him. That was why he failed to follow up after experiencing the best kiss of his life: real passion was addictive. But when Sue Finley started getting death threats, all bets were off. The blonde spitfire was everything he'd ever wanted -- and she needed him. And though this novel situation had a quirky cast of characters and an unquestionable bad guy, he was going to make sure it had a happy ending.

A mystery writer is forced to reconsider her policy against dating when she is protected from death threats by the sexiest cop she's ever seen.

Since he lost his last fight ten years ago, Dante has led a reclusive life--and he never gives interviews. But he's making a comeback, ready to prove to the world--and his ex-wife--that he can still win a championship. He gives Christiana an ultimatum: if she can perform five tasks, she can ask him five questions. And then she can be on her way. Yet Dante's always had a weakness for beautiful black women, and seeing Christiana everyday is enough to melt his defenses. Soon Christiana is an intimate part of the very story she came to write. But when the line between personal and professional gets blurred, it can be difficult to see when you've found the real thing.

It’s no accident that Tristan Rexford is nicknamed T-Rex. As a quarterback for the California Predators, he’s a hunter both on and off the football field. He lives a lavish lifestyle and carries a black book thicker than the average dictionary. Correction: “black book” is so outdated. Let’s just say his Facebook contacts could rival the Yellow Pages. He has the world at his fingertips, and he has no thoughts of settling down. And why should he? With a seven-figure income, a dazzling smile, and a body resembling Michelangelo’s David, he’s every woman’s fantasy.

But Doctor Alexa Kennedy lives in the real world. She barely has time for her patients, and even less time for fantasies. At thirty-something, she’s lonely, bored, and sex-starved. But when it comes to dealing with men, she’s short on patience and long on disappointment. When one of the hospital’s board members attends a charity benefit and ends up with the winning bid for a date with Tristan, Alexa is chosen to escort him. She could less about watching some grown ass men run up and down the field smashing into each other. But the moment she meets Tristan, all that thinking flies out the window. Simply put, he’s the sexiest man she’s has ever laid eyes on.

They share a night of passion before Tristan retreats back into his glamorous world, leaving her aching for more. Alexa tells herself it was all in the name of charity. She’s far too sensible to fall for someone like Tristan. Or is she?

SOME CAME DESPERATE is a spell-binding interracial romance saga that tells the story of two sisters and their white lovers in contemporary Miami. Simone is drawn to Nick Perry, a gorgeous, high-powered attorney who develops a long-lasting, sweet and enduring friendship with Simone. But when their platonic relationship turns sexual, and Simone discovers a secret about Nick’s life that renders her nearly suicidal, she knows something has to change. She leaves Miami, becomes a successful business owner in Atlanta, Georgia, and only return years later when her kid sister Shay is in trouble. Simone reunites with Nick and discovers that there is no will power within her that is strong enough to keep her from the man she loves too much.

Jules, the older sister, believe she’s found the answer to her dreams when she becomes Jeremy Druce’s one and only. He’s talented, great looking, and a renowned surgeon. He’s also abusive, possessive, and an alpha-male who wants nothing more than to parade Jules around as if she was a trophy he had won. But Jules endures his less-than-stellar treatment because her own ambitions, and her blind love for him, cannot allow her to move on.

In a continuing story of love’s ups and downs, SOME CAME DESPERATE chronicles interracial love in its barest human form, and takes the reader on a ride that can only be described as tumultuous. In Jules and Jeremy, Simone and Nick, we find four people determined to stay together despite overwhelming odds against them. And despite their own secrets and lies.

But after four months of falling in love, she discovers he’s an undercover DEA Agent investigating the possibility she’s involved in her ex-husband’s drug business

Obviously Tess decides this means it’s over.

But DEA Agent Brock Lucas disagrees. A man on a mission who’s really committed to his job, he’s spent years in the underbelly of Denver with the dregs of society. And spending four months with Tess who’s as sweet as her cupcakes, he seriously enjoyed his job. But during Tess’s interrogation, Brock learns the devastating secret Tess is carrying and he’s determined to be the man who helps her heal as well as take her back as she walks on the wild side.

As wild and sweet mix, they face challenge after challenge of family struggling with history and terminal illness. Not to mention, Tess’s ex-husband, the drug lord and Brock’s ex-wife, who has a very big playbook are scheming to tear them apart.

But Brock Lucas has wild in him and once in his past on the trail of vengeance he let that wild loose, making a mistake that he would have no idea years later will put his sweet Tess in the position to pay his penance.

Their wolves are howling at the moon. Their human halves are on different planets.

Lone wolf Shaun Stevens’s automatic response to the words “happily ever after”? Kill me now. Yet with all his friends settling down he’s begun to think there may actually be something to this love-and-roses crap.

One thing’s for sure: his dream mate will have to out-cuss, out-spit and out-hike him. So he never expected the one to push his forever button would be a blue-blooded Southern debutante with a voice as dark and velvety as her skin.

When Gemmita Jacobs steps off the plane in Whitehorse, Yukon, it’s about more than her caribou research project. It’s her declaration of independence from an overprotected upbringing. Except there’s something in the air she can’t quite define—something that unexpectedly rouses her mating instincts.

Moments after their eyes lock, the deed is done—and done thoroughly. When the pheromone dust settles, though, all the reasons they don’t belong together become painfully clear.

It’s enough to make a wolf learn a whole new set of cuss words…

Warning: Two strong wolves getting exactly what they deserve. Includes wilderness nookie, shifters being naughty in public places, the Midnight Sun as a canopy for seduction and grizzly shifters on the loose. Oh, and don’t forget the sarcasm.

Just can’t get enough…
For Dane Halima, it didn’t matter how many times his woman told him that she wasn’t his woman. The fact of the matter was, she was his woman. He wouldn’t let anything stand in the way of that, not even her. Brianna Grayson, no matter how crazy, was it for him. Now all he had to do was convince her…

Just can’t get away…
Why couldn’t the man take no for an answer? And why couldn’t she hold firm to that? Brianna had been called a lot of things in her life, most of them by her younger sister, but her greatest stamp was that of being stubborn. So how was it that Dane kept slipping past all her defenses? She avoided relationships like sinners avoided church on Sunday, but he’d managed to slide right on in and stay there. What’s a girl to do when she has a sexy sheriff after her who just won’t give up? Only one thought kept coming to mind…surrender.

She's just been given the assignment of accompanying Ms. Bellagio to her estate in the Keys. Trading pumps for flip-flops and a cell phone for a conch shell—could be worse, right? Especially when life on the island includes her very own mystery man—one Jack "The Shark" O'Connell, dashing venture capitalist. He dares Amelia to use this time to do something wild: drink a hurricane, go skinny-dipping...have an affair with a dangerously attractive man. Now Amelia will have to decide whether to step into that glass slipper.
