With fame, fortune, looks and charisma, Nathan Banks may have it all. But Dr Sophia King wants nothing to do with him beyond treating him as any other patient.
A family scandal and a childhood of media intrusion have left the reserved doctor fiercely protective of her vulnerable family. But when a photo of Sophia and Nathan together strips away her anonymity and exposes past secrets, she must step into the limelight to protect her loved ones.
Intrigued by the man behind his famous persona, Sophia glimpses a life of fame and glamour she's never coveted. But Nathan comes with baggage, and the screaming fans, the beautiful leading ladies and ruthless paparazzi are all part of the deal.
How much is Sophia willing to endure to be with the man she loves, and how much is Nathan willing to give up for the woman who has stolen his heart?
He wants something else: me, for one year.
But I don’t even know who he is…
365 days and nights doing everything he wants…except that.
“I’m not going to sleep with you,” I say categorically.
“I’m going to make you a promise,” his eyes challenge mine. “Before our time is up, you’ll beg me for it.”

I’m the assistant who was chosen to cover for his last fire.
The owner of the company is clear—hook the biggest client in our firm’s history and there’s a partnership for him and a promotion for me. Stipulation—we do it together.
It doesn’t take a tarot card-reading psychic to figure out where our story is headed… late nights, trips out of town, and more than a few awkward moments filled with sexual tension.
No worries though. I pride myself on my willpower. I can totally ignore his sexy grin, his rock-hard body and his dreamy brown eyes. I will not become the woman other women hate.
But it turns out that Enzo Mancini has a lot of layers and if I don’t stop peeling, I’m going to lose everything, including my dignity.
The title speaks for itself! Don’t miss this sexy OFFICE ROMANCE romantic comedy coming June 11th!
Cover coming soon!
But what Alayna didn't figure on is Hudson Pierce, the new owner of the nightclub. He's smart, rich, and gorgeous--the kind of guy Alayna knows to stay away from if she wants to keep her past tendencies in check.
Except, Hudson's fixed his sights on her.
He wants her in his bed and makes no secret of it. Avoiding him isn't an option after he offers a business proposition she can't turn down and she's drawn further into his universe, unable to resist his gravitational pull.
When she learns Hudson has a dark history of his own, she realizes too late that she's fallen for the worst man she could possibly get involved with.
Or maybe their less than ideal pasts give them an opportunity to heal each other and finally find the love their lives have been missing.
I’m the competing broker who stupidly moved across the hall from his office.
From day one, I’ve been his sworn enemy. Okay, so I might have accidentally stolen one of his clients. Well, is it stealing if the client comes to me?
Even our vicious banter and loathing gazes can’t hide the chemistry between us. Who can blame me? He has enough charisma to make every hot-blooded woman in the city melt with a single word.
Just when I think a mutual respect could be born between us, the biggest developer in the city offers us an opportunity that pits us against each other.
Time to forget Carmelo Mancini’s dreamy eyes and tight abs.
When an accident leaves her with severe burns, Captain Eden Archer has one goal – to get back to full fitness and her duties at her United Nations job. Eden is not a joiner, but the Ruby Challenge – a four–day hike across Nevada's Ruby Mountains – seems like a great way to boost her rehabilitation, and to prove herself ready and able to move on. She just has to get through the pre–challenge medical.
As a doctor in Accident and Emergency, Dan Barbour is used to dealing with people in pain, people in denial, and people who don't much like doctors, but the prickly servicewoman who dismisses his medical skills awakens an interest that has long been dormant.
The Ruby Mountain hike is as much about the emotional challenge as the physical, and as Eden and Dan find themselves getting closer and closer, they both face enormous obstacles. Eden protects her heart with distance and reserve; Dan keeps everyone at bay by being wholly unavailable. But if they stay true to their old course, they will lose the one chance at a real connection, the one chance to really find someone to love.
A broken–hearted doctor and a reluctant patient should be a match made in heaven, but are Eden and Dan strong enough to find courage outside of their respective battlefields and expose their hearts?
Colt: My brother and I couldn’t believe it when we met our new stepsister. Karlie was curvy, unassuming, and totally innocent. We figured our nightly escapades would shock the socks off her but looks definitely lie. One night, we take a trip to the big city to “make it rain” with our football buddies. It’s a pre-game tradition: we hit up local joints looking for pretty girls, and then toss bills for good luck. But when the curtain pulls apart at a particularly seamy club, suddenly the beautiful woman on the stage makes our jaws drop. Are our eyes deceiving us, or have we just unveiled a shocking secret about our shy stepsister?
Hey Readers – You’ll love this steamy romance because of its crazy twists and turns! Karlie, Cain and Colt face uphill battles but of course, the trio come out winners in the end. You’ll love it, I promise! Xoxo, Cassie
Lesson One: Always get her FULL name.
Lesson Two: Consider asking what she does for a living.
Lesson Three: Find out why she’s moved to town. Get details. Details are crucial.
Lesson Four: Don’t alter her bio in front of an auditorium of high school students unless you know she has a sense of humor for that sort of thing.
Lesson Five: If you ignore Lesson Four, apologize instead of flirt when you’re sent to the principal’s office.
Lesson Six: NEVER sleep with her again.
Lesson Seven: Pay attention to this one—it’s the most important of them all.
Don’t fall for your one-night stand.
My life was perfect - until a shocking tragedy pulled the rug out from underneath me.
My children were left without a father. I was without a husband and a provider. Instead of wallowing in my grief, I buried myself in my work at Dovetail Enterprises. Landing the promotion as the CEO’s right hand was exactly what I needed.
Getting saddled with Milo Huxley as an assistant is exactly the opposite.
I can’t stand him.
He’s arrogant, irresponsible, and out for my job. As if that’s not bad enough, he has to be devastatingly sexy, and have a posh English accent that makes me squirm on top of it all. I’ve had enough unpredictability for one lifetime, thank you.
But soon enough, we’re fighting less and laughing more. He’s there for me when no one else is. And those good looks aren’t the only panty-dropping thing about him.
If I only knew what to do about it . . .
A second chance he didn’t see coming…
Wes was born with a competitive streak. Ever since he could walk, he's made it a point to never lose.
And he never did, until his girlfriend left him senior year of college and his professional sports career tanked.
Four years later, the last thing Wes needs as he prepares for the game of his life is his ex-girlfriend sauntering into his resort on the arm of her new fiancé. Then again, this might be Wes's opportunity to win back what he's lost.
Because if there's a chance Wes was wrong about Kaylee and she really had loved him, maybe he can break his mental block and win back his game--and the girl.

He has no idea how much more complicated life will get.

Ex Marine Nate Weller is an expert at keeping his cool, which is how he keeps his feelings for Ali Morgan in check. Sweet, sexy Ali is his best friend's sister...and totally off limits.

With Nate, her life is in his capable hands--but her heart is another story.
2. In Rides Trouble
Trouble tends to find Becky Reichert. Like the day ex-SEAL Frank Knight showed up, wanting to use her shop as a cover for his special ops team. Becky prides herself on being able to weld and shoot just as well as the big boys. But while munitions and mayhem are Frank's way of life, the last thing he needs is Becky in the way. Yet it's just his luck when she ends up in a hostage situation. Come hell or high water, he will get her back...
3. Rev It Up
Ex-SEAL Jake "the Snake" Sommers was known for striking quickly, quietly, and lethally. That's also how he broke Michelle Carter's heart. It was the only way to keep her safe-from himself. Four years later, Jake wants another chance, but Michelle has never forgiven him. But when her brother ticks off a mobster, she must do the unimaginable: place her life in Jake's hands. And once she does, he'll never let her go...
Being bad never felt so good...
The office is full of rules. Making a charity calendar of the hot guys on your floor? Not allowed. Shrinking your boss' underwear when he sends it for dry cleaning? Can't do that either.
But those things preserve the natural order. Because Avery Banks, our resident rising star, is a shark. The tall, blond, and gorgeous kind with zero patience and even less forgiveness.
Good thing I'm the Mae West of executive assistants. I live to put grown men in their place.
He wasn't supposed to find out.
Now I'm at his beck and call for every humiliating request.
Until we stumble on a new game. One we both want to play. One we both need to win.
And once we start...Avery doesn’t want to replace me. I don’t want him to.
All I want is more of this. The fire under the ice. What happens behind closed doors.
It's twisted, and so damn hot. But he's my boss.
Lucky for me, Avery and I have one thing in common...
We both suck at following the rules.

Return to Jackson Harbor for this sweet and sexy standalone Christmas romance.
The rumors are true. I’m a hot mess with an awful track record at love. Single mom. Down on her luck. Yeah, I’m bad news.
If the hardest part of moving back home to Jackson Harbor was going to be people talking, I’d be fine. I’ve kept my chin up through worse than their decade-old gossip.
I was wrong. The hardest part is resisting my boss. Brayden Jackson is the very picture of tall, dark, and handsome. And thanks to an ill-advised one-night stand we had seven months ago, I know exactly what I’m missing when I turn him down. Every. Single. Delicious. Inch.
But I have my son to care for and my job to keep, so I’ll keep on saying no.
Until my string of bad luck continues, and suddenly my precious four-year-old and I find ourselves with nowhere to live. At Christmas, no less. It’s for my son that I accept Brayden’s offer to stay at his place. One by one, my defenses are falling, as fast as I am. If Brayden was smart, he’d run, because it’s only a matter of time before he realizes he deserves better than what a girl like me can offer.
Unless, for once, my bad luck is leading me exactly where I need to be.
When she becomes tabloid fodder, she's had enough. Escaping to a guest ranch in Bridgewater is the perfect place to hide. But when two hot cowboys make her theirs, is it for fifteen minutes of fame or because they want forever?
Warning: Panty melting! Make Me Yours is a wildly dirty romance with a movie star heroine who wants to hide herself from the world and two obsessed alpha cowboys who've found her. Claimed her. Made her theirs. This HEA is all about her - no m/m.
Rule # 2: Absolutely do not fall for your brother’s best friend.
Rule # 3: Don’t break the rules.
Jackson Stone is hot—like burn-down-buildings kind of hot. He’s also my brother’s best friend, and the memory of one kiss with him years ago still might get to me. Maybe. But, I am not looking for a second chance.
When I return to the small town of Stolen Hearts Valley, my life is a hot mess. I’m a few bucks shy of broke with nowhere else to go. My heart’s battered and bruised, and when it comes to romance, the door is nailed shut.
But Jackson’s the kind of man women ruin panties over. Oh, and he's my roommate. Talk about too close for comfort.
When I’m at my most vulnerable, he pulls that whole knight-in-shining-armor thing. What can I say? He’s d*mn near impossible to resist.
Shay Martin is my best friend’s little sister. And she’s so hot she nearly sets me on fire.
She’s a walking complication, and I don’t do complications. But I can’t seem to stay away from her. It doesn't help that her bedroom is across the hall from mine.
Every look, every kiss, every touch nearly brings me to my knees. I can’t keep my balance, much less think. Before I know it, I’ll do anything for her. Complications be d*mned.
*This is a full-length standalone romance with a guaranteed happily-ever-after.

Kyleigh: Years ago, my mother married the twins’ father. Roman and Ryder, my new stepbrothers, were rude, arrogant, and embarrassed me in front of the entire lacrosse team. I wanted the floor to swallow me whole. But when I return to little Farmingdale for our high school reunion, everything changes because the twins look at me with new eyes. They appreciate my curves, and there’s electricity flowing in the air. The problem is that after one fateful night, I’m pregnant with their children. I’m expecting twins … and my stepbrothers are my babydaddies.
Roman: We never meant to get her pregnant. But Kyleigh’s changed a lot. She used to be a tall, skinny beanpole with an awkward gait and coke bottle glasses. The woman who showed up at our high school reunion was completely different: she was sassy and shapely, with curves that made our mouths water. It was never supposed to happen, but her allure was too strong. Kyleigh’s now pregnant with our twins, and my brother and I are going to find some way to make this work even if it costs us everything.
Note to my readers: Hot hot hot! Lose yourself in this dramatic tale of a girl who finds herself pregnant with twins by her twin stepbrothers. As always, keep a cool glass of lemonade on hand because you’ll be sweating with excitement by the end. Love, Cassie
