Adam Danforth podría haber tenido a cualquier mujer, pero la única que lo tentaba era Selene Van Gelder, la hija del mayor rival de su padre.
Adam debería haber desconfiado del interés de Selene, pero el deseo que sentía por ella era demasiado intenso y salvaje. Él quería hacer pública su relación, pero ella le suplicó que esperara... pero entonces fue la prensa la que aireó su secreto. Ahora Adam tenía que enfrentarse a la realidad y a la duda de si Selene había filtrado la noticia para sabotear la campaña de su padre... o si podría volver a confiar en ella.
Si Marc Danforth no hacía algo pronto, acabaría pagando por un delito que no había cometido. Pero convencer a la agente del FBI Dana Aldrich, su atractiva guardaespaldas, era todo un desafío. Porque ella no sólo trataba de evitar que cometiera una tontería como intentar demostrar su inocencia, sino que también estaba tentándolo más de lo que él podría soportar...
Dana estaba abrumada por la pasión que sentía hacia Marc. Durante el día sobrellevaba el encierro con él, pero por la noche su frustración se convertía en deseo...
A few white lies and Grace Haley had herself a waitressing job at Tyler's Bar & Grill. It wasn't that she didn't have enough experience. As heir to the nine top-grossing Chicago restaurants, she knew her way around a kitchen. But Grace was in trouble and couldn't risk leaking her true identity to anyone. Not even her gorgeous new boss….
Tyler knew Grace had a secret she wouldn't share, but that didn't stop him from fantasizing about getting her alone after hours. Unluckily for him, she seemed hell-bent on keeping their kisses to a minimum. But as the flames of passion overtook them, Tyler couldn't help wondering whether her secret past would forever keep them apart….
It has to be Vegas's glitzy, seductive atmosphere that made Sarah Tyler trade her straitlaced persona for that of a cardsharp in a red halter dress and heels. But when the Chicago vet wakes up next to her longtime crush—with a ring on her finger—she knows she's in serious trouble.
Fifteen years ago, Sarah was madly in love with JD Damico, her brother's best friend. She didn't expect to ever see him again…until the bad-boy-turned-Hollywood-photographer persuaded her to accompany him to the city of sin for a whirlwind weekend. Now Sarah thinks they're lawful husband and wife. Only, JD isn't a stick-around kind of guy. Worse, he no longer believes in happy endings. Or does he?
Book 3 of The Tylers
A scorching hot one-night stand with her ex Gabe and his current lover was just what Callie needed to start her recovery from a decade-long sexless marriage. One night only, because anything more than that with the man she’d never quite gotten over would be too dangerous. And the threesome was even more fun and filthy than she’d fantasized it would be.
Now Callie’s supposed to be moving onto new erotic adventures, without Gabe. Or thoughts of Gabe. No Gabe, damn it. But somehow her ex keeps getting caught up in her plans, and Callie can’t make herself say no when Gabe offers to accompany her—strictly as her platonic safety-measure friend—to a BDSM club.
Callie’s trying to be smart, to protect herself and explore this fascinating new world at the same time. And she does actually feel safer knowing Gabe is close when Alejandro, the sexy Dom she meets, introduces her to her first experiences with submission. But when Ale picks up on the ever-present sexual tension between Callie and Gabe, Callie’s going to learn just how far an experienced Dom can push two people who aren’t sure where their boundaries lie.
Maxie Tyler is Chicago's toughest stage manager. Her latest gig is just the break she needs, and she's not going to let anyone get in her way. Not even the producer with dreamy blue eyes and bespoke suits that fit him perfectly in all the right places.
A successful venture capitalist, Nick Drake is used to calling the shots. He doesn't care about art unless it turns a profit. This show might prove to be a good investment, but he's not sure if Maxie Tyler will. Her need to control every detail of the show makes him nervous. So does the fact that they can't seem to keep their hands off each other.
Scandal and disaster threaten her career, his reputation and the success of the play. Two people accustomed to being in control will have to trust each other if the show will, indeed, go on. And they'll have to trust their feelings if their passion is going to last after the last curtain goes down and the lights go up.
Josh doesn't let himself wonder about questions like:
· why don't you want to ask @princessglitter if she's a girl?
· why don't you tell your friends that you can't hang on Sunday nights because you've got a date to watch anime with your new BFF?
· why do you call it a date?
All he knows is that he needs to escape from the stress of having been injured just before the bowl game, and @princessglitter has somehow become his best friend.
But when Josh's secrets and Benji's sex appeal smash together for forty-eight scorching hours, they're going to feel the heat from Miami to Minnesota.
