Payback had fueled him for more than a decade. Yet now that his goal was within reach, Josh Tremont found himself wanting something even more. His new assistant, Callie Lee, was beautiful, sensual…and appeared to be totally innocent. Though he'd won her away from the enemy… dare he trust her completely?
Being bedded by a millionaire had not been on Callie's agenda…Josh Tremont was simply too impossible to resist. But she had to stop him from seeking vengeance. She'd gone into this knowing she'd betray her boss; she hadn't expected to deceive the man she'd come to love.
Their scorching, sensual affair ended in heartbreak and recrimination, but Christian Grey cannot get Anastasia Steele out of his mind, or his blood. Determined to win her back, he tries to suppress his darkest desires and his need for complete control, and to love Ana on her own terms.
But the horrors of his childhood still haunt him, and Ana’s scheming boss, Jack Hyde, clearly wants her for himself. Can Christian’s confidant and therapist, Dr. Flynn, help him face down his demons? Or will the possessiveness of Elena, his seducer, and the deranged devotion of Leila, his former submissive, drag Christian down into the past?
And if Christian does win Ana back, can a man so dark and damaged ever hope to keep her?

Sultry, elegant, sophisticated…the woman Adam Palmer glimpsed at a casino was temptation in scarlet. To his surprise, she was no stranger. The New Zealand business magnate never knew his quiet personal assistant had a seductive side, or that she might be acquainted with a scheming company rival. There was only one thing he could do to satisfy both his curiosity and his burning need to possess her…make Lainey Delacorte his mistress! And Adam planned to learn what other secrets she had been hiding—in and out of the bedroom.
NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE
Daunted by the singular tastes and dark secrets of the beautiful, tormented young entrepreneur Christian Grey, Anastasia Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a Seattle publishing house.
But desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, Anastasia cannot resist. They rekindle their searing sensual affair, and Anastasia learns more about the harrowing past of her damaged, driven and demanding Fifty Shades.
While Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Anastasia must confront the anger and envy of the women who came before her, and make the most important decision of her life.
This book is intended for mature audiences.
Marry before her 30th birthday or forfeit her inheritance. A sticky choice for heiress Amira Forsythe was a golden opportunity for her ex-fiancé, Brent Colby—for payback. Of course, Brent assumed she was a spoiled socialite. And he would never believe what she really needed the money for….
Brent intended to make the most of this. Eight years ago, Amira humiliated him in front of hundreds of wedding guests. Now he had the chance to do the same…seduce her, make love to her—and then leave!
After a nasty divorce, Maitlyn Boudreaux is ready to reclaim her sensuality and rediscover her inner wild child. A luxury cruise to exotic ports of call is just what the New Orleans negotiator needs…and meeting Zak Sayed on board could be an added bonus. The high-stakes poker player wants the same thing she does: a sizzling hot fling with no strings attached.
A brilliant entrepreneur and professional gambler, Zak is one of the world's most sought-after bachelors. But beneath the playboy facade is a guy who's playing for keeps. The passionate eldest daughter of the Boudreaux clan is the soul mate he's been searching for…. Even as a ruthless business adversary threatens to destroy everything Zak cherishes most, can he convince Maitlyn to take the biggest gamble of all?
