Waking up in bed with two men is not how model-turned-agent Jiya planned on mending her broken heart. One wild party and a pair of handsome strangers, and her previously entrenched principles seem thrown off-kilter. To make matters worse, one half of her extremely ill-considered one-night stand turns out to be none other than the very photographer she signed up months ago—with her ex-boyfriend’s help.
Stefon is both attractive and extremely good at what he does, an irresistible combination. Dating him should be enough—is enough—but Jiya’s quest to recover her missing phone soon has her revisiting both the scene of the party where they first met and its enigmatic but solitary host, Elijah.
Torn between two men, Jiya soon finds herself hurtling toward an impossible choice and a revelation that could change everything.
New to the hallowed halls of the prestigious, all-male Ledwich University, Ward fully intends to skate by on wealth and minimal effort all the way to graduation. He has no desire to make friends or revive his interest in rowing, but when luck hands him the deciding vote over another student’s admission to the club, Ward chooses discretion over decency and finds himself juggling both.
Angry, bellicose Dylan is nothing like Ward’s wealthy peers. One of a handful of scholarship students, Dylan appears to have little sense of self-preservation and a grudge against the crew captain to match. But despite ruining his chances, Ward can’t get him out of his head.
As Ledwich slowly reveals its darker side and myriad cruelties begin to play out around and because of Ward, his fascination with Dylan becomes too much to conceal. Ward and Dylan may well be the products of two different worlds, but their chemistry burns too hot to ignore. If having him means hiding, then so be it. Ward may not be certain of much anymore, but what he wants, he gets.
Ex-con Elijah has run out of ways to make ends meet. Picked up by police in a bum-fighting sting, his only hope is the sister who landed him in prison many years ago. But catapulted into a world of veiled state interests and deadly secrets, Elijah soon finds himself torn between a past he cannot outrun and a spy whose dilemma he understands better than he’d like.
Nate, an Englishman whose comings and goings are as suspicious as his gratuitous kindness, offers Elijah the second chance he didn’t realize he was praying for. It’s not long before living out of each other’s pockets brings clandestine desires to the surface, threatening the fragile peace Elijah finds in Nate’s home. A peace that may have been nothing more than a smokescreen to begin with.
A single woman at the end of the world can be no stranger to rough times, but the odd brush with the law is preferable to taking on mutant beasts and walking corpses in the badlands. Such is Alana Burke’s deep-seated conviction, until a town council decision orders her into wedlock to a man she does not love.
Her only choice is compliance—at least until a mysterious traveller sets fire to the town, forcing Alana to make an even tougher call—stay and be married to a man she does not love or flee with the one responsible for the destruction that has consumed her world?
Jackson Idaho is a drifter, a man whose people are notorious for pillaging and raping all across the western seaboard. His way of life runs counter to everything Alana holds dear, but he can save her. If she consents to becoming his thrall.
Free of her oppressors but delivered to the underground fief of Jackson’s fellow drifters, Alana wrestles with her new situation and the gnawing suspicion that there may be more to her protector than meets the eye.
Quentin’s sole distraction from the monotony of life in the small town of Bastion Falls has been a string of meaningless but satisfying one-night stands with men whose names he doesn’t know and whose stories he doesn’t care to hear.
Everything changes when dapper city boy Pierce comes to town. All it takes is one look for Quentin to know he doesn’t trust the yuppie. He’s too clean-shaven, his shoes are too shiny and he acts as though he has Quentin all figured out. As events conspire to throw him into Pierce’s path, Quentin quickly learns that keeping his distance may not be all that simple—and that Pierce’s path may be harder to navigate than he’d first thought.
Pierce makes no secret of his proclivities when he asks Quentin to submit to him, but what kind of past must a wealthy, college-educated man be fleeing from to ever end up in Quentin’s hometown?
Imogen’s dream is about to come true. Only a handful of fights separate her from her first triumph in a mixed martial arts tournament. Sure, she’s been sleeping with her trainer, Russ, on and off for the last couple of months, but it’s nothing serious. He doesn’t even like her. Everything is going swimmingly, until one night after a victory in the ring Imogen meets a man who offers a world of pleasure—if only she can agree to submit to him.
There’s something about Imogen—her spirit, her compact, lethal weapon of a body—that just takes Jaime’s breath away. He doesn’t seem to care that she’s rowdy and foul-mouthed, or that she will never fit into his world. He wants her.
As the scorching hot chemistry between Imogen and Jaime reaches boiling point, Russ becomes convinced that the tournament will be forfeit if his prize-fighter doesn’t get her priorities in order. With the final coming up and Imogen’s chances of victory on shaky ground, the choice between ambition and romance may not be the only one she is forced to make.
Rami knows the storm should have killed him. Very much alive, though slightly waterlogged, he can’t shake the feeling that he didn’t survive on his own merits. He had help.
When a person of interest in the legal matter he’s been hired to untangle reveals a strong resemblance to the man who may have saved his life, venturing into uncharted waters becomes the least of Rami’s problems.
A loner living in the shadow of a once-great house, Malcolm is a hard man to pin down. His seemingly impossible feats of heroism have certainly saved lives, but the people of Envern, Maine, are only too eager to allege he had something to do with his employer’s death. Leading a secretive existence under a cloud of suspicion should scupper Malcolm’s appeal, but Rami has secrets of his own and his relationship with danger has always been complicated.
When Briar’s partner Kai returns from the Federation’s latest skirmish with a handsome prisoner in tow, Briar is both envious and wary. It is common knowledge that the tribespeople of Ganymede are violent brutes who delight in murdering and enslaving their enemies, and Dallan can be no different.
As an officer with the Federation’s propaganda machine, Briar has produced plenty of material to substantiate the need to wage war in the asteroid belt. Kai, for his part, has slain many enemies while on active duty and watched just as many of his friends perish in combat.
For a foe to save rather than end his life is unusual in the extreme. Sparing him the horrors of a prison camp seems like a fair exchange, even if the only alternative he can offer is thralldom.
With one parent in prison and the other cold in the ground, Laure desperately wants to blend in. She’s worked hard constructing the pretense of a well-adjusted, sophisticated Parisian woman. But hiding in plain sight is only feasible as long as her father’s victims allow it.
As the anniversary of her father’s conviction draws near, Laure finds herself in the cross hairs of one last cold case with an unlikely ally. The only man she can depend on was never meant to be more than a rebound fling, a distraction from her luckless love life. Now, his fate may well rest in Laure’s hands.
Ashley is fifteen years her senior and should know better. Yet something about his neurotic neighbor draws him in. Moth to flame, he will follow Laure to the ends of the world if he must. If not, he’ll go as far as Kansas on the trail of a killer’s last unsolved murder and help unravel a mystery steeped in bloody family history.
The corporations that run Arcadia have just banned Bliss, the only known treatment for Acute Empatheia Nervosa, and Allegra Avenson’s last hope for a normal life. Allegra’s ability to function without the drug is shaky at best, but when Arcadia’s finest pick her up for possession, it’s like she tumbled down the rabbit hole. Now police are telling her she can serve a prison sentence or help to end a string of murders intimately linked to the illegal trafficking of Bliss.
Only her would-be partner Detective Leo Darius seems suspicious of the arrangement. The frosty investigator has been working the streets long enough to know what most of his colleagues refuse to acknowledge.
Empaths can do a lot more than read emotions—they can create them.
As the pair join forces to stop a murderer, their own feelings get the better of them. A junkie and a hustler, Allegra can’t help but desire a man who seems determined to shoulder the weight of the world all by his lonesome. Seducing this modern-day Atlas is supposed to be a means to an end, but just because she can read truth into the faintest flicker of human emotion doesn’t mean that Allegra is impervious to the caprices of her own heart.
