"You're certainly not in love with Paul. Because you want to go to bed with me." Devilish words indeed. But what made Flint Jansen so arrogantly assume that Aura would choose him over Paul—his friend and Aura's warm and loyal fiancé? From the moment they met, he had shattered Aura's world. It was true, she found him undeniably attractive, overwhelmingly charistmatic. So much so that she now faced a battle with her conscience and with Flint: both demanded that she abandon security and her fiancé. She had to cancel the wedding—but could she entrust herself to Flint's dark seduction…?
Geraldine Dacre is beautiful, sophisticated and loved by all, but she has yet to surrender to love. Only one man turns her head—Bryn Falconer.
Returning from a business trip, Bryn and Gerry are stranded, and Gerry finally surrenders to her passion. Then she discovers that she has not been so much stranded as abducted, and that Bryn's seduction might have been far from genuine!

Life is good for Jesse "The Lord" Ward. Perfect, actually. He still has the charm, he's in great shape, and he still reduces his wife, Ava, to a pool of desire with a mere look. He's in full control, just how he likes it.
But Jesse's perfect world falls apart when a terrible accident lands Ava in the hospital with a life-threatening head injury. Devastated and angry, he feels like his entire existence hangs in the balance. He cannot survive without this woman's love. So when she finally comes around, his shaking world begins to level out. But his nightmare doesn't end there. It's only just begun. Because his wife can't remember the last sixteen years of her life. That's all of him. All of their time together. He is a stranger to her.
Now Jesse must do whatever it takes to find her memories . . . and help her fall madly, passionately in love with him all over again.
The payment can't be settled with money or favors. He only wants one thing. Me.
Every action gets a reward. A button. Once I fill his jar with three hundred and sixty-five buttons, he'll let me go. He'll let me walk away.
But I have to earn every single one. By submitting to the darkest, cruelest, and most beautiful man I've ever known.
** TRIGGER WARNING ** There are some dark and disturbing scenes of abuse and punishment.
Compelled, charmed…and compromised!
Mariel loved Bride's Bay Resort, its Sea Island location, its friendly staff. She'd jumped at the offer to translate there again—but soon wished she hadn't. For one thing, working for a security-conscious delegation was no job for a woman with a past. For another, there was Nicholas Leigh, the most commanding, charismatic man Mariel had ever met and—for her—the most dangerous!
From the start a feral and magnetic attraction crackled between them. An affair with a delegate would be indiscreet enough. If Nicholas discovered her carefully covered past, too, it would destroy both their lives. For his sake—for hers, too—Mariel had to get out of this man's life…. But first she had to break the spell that bound them!
