Meet the Blackthorne men, each one as hot, fast, and smooth as the whiskey that built the family fortune, and the yachts and race cars that bear their name. From proud Scottish stock, Blackthornes never lose. But, one by one, the seven sexy men in this family are about to risk everything when they fall for strong and beautiful women who test their mettle in life…and love.


Devlin – Book One 

 

As the second Blackthorne son, Devlin usually likes to stay out of the family drama, but with his family suddenly falling apart, he has one way to bring them back together. He wants to win the Southern Maine Sailing Invitational, like his father and uncle before him. He has built the fastest boat, he has planned for every contingency, except one…a beautiful blonde determined to beat him and avenge a family betrayal. 


Hannah Reid is tired of watching the Blackthornes win races on boats built by her dad, especially after the family patriarch fired her father. She has only one way to get revenge, win the race. Unfortunately, Devlin Blackthorne is standing in her way. She wants to hate him, but Devlin's love of the sea and brave, adventurous spirit mirrors her own, and she begins to realize that this sexy, charming man is hurting, too. 


As they race to the finish, battling not only betrayal, but also strong winds and unexpected storms, Hannah and Devlin wonder if winning each other wouldn't be the greatest win of all…

The Royal Marriage — Fiona Hood-Stewart

Gabriella Guimaraes was shocked to discover that her late father had promised her to a prince! She must marry or be left penniless. Ricardo, the irresistibly handsome ruler of the Mediterranean principality of Maldoravia, was not easy to refuse!

Determined not to be ruled by Ricardo, Gabriella’s defiance began in the bedroom. But she hadn’t bargained on falling in love with her husband, or his insistence that this must be a royal marriage — in every sense!

When powerful, wealthy men meet the women who want to tame them, passion and secrets collide. Don’t miss a single fan-favorite story in this box set from New York Times bestselling author Maya Banks.

Enticed

Bryony Morgan fell hard for hotelier Rafael de Luca… and then he vanished, leaving her pregnant! Now she’s tracked him to his New York gala, determined to get answers from him.

Wanted

When wealthy developer Ryan Beardsley kicked his cheating fiancée out of his life, he couldn’t help but write her one last check that would cover all expenses she could possibly have… But for some reason, she never cashed it.

Tempted

For Ashley Carter, marrying Devon Carter is a dream come true. Her whole life has been building up to this. But not long after her trip down the aisle, her happily-ever-after notions are dealt a swift blow when she learns their marriage is a business merger orchestrated by her father! But Devon is determined to prove that his love is real… especially since there’s a baby on the way.

Undone

No strings attached? Yeah, right. Pippa Laingley should have known better. When an unplanned evening of passion with Cameron Hollingsworth results in an unplanned pregnancy, she’s at a major crossroads. She knew going in that the sexy entrepreneur didn’t do commitment, that emotions weren’t part of the deal, but she’s determined to show Cam how lasting love can be.

The Callaways Boxed Set - Books 1-3

Meet the Callaways, the bestselling romantic and suspenseful family series by #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Barbara Freethy. This special boxed set offers the first three full-length novels in the series. Each book is filled with Barbara Freethy's unique blend of page-turning romance, family and mystery—unforgettable stories that will touch your heart.

ON A NIGHT LIKE THIS:

The second oldest of the Callaway clan, Aiden Callaway veered from the family tradition of urban firefighting and became a smokejumper, never questioning his choice until the job took the life of his friend, Kyle, and left Aiden with injuries and fractured memories. Everyone blames Aiden for what happened, but he doesn't remember, nor is he sure he wants to remember. The truth may clear Aiden of blame but destroy Kyle's reputation and hurt the people he left behind. 


Aiden seeks help from an unlikely ally. Sara had always been untouchable, sweet, innocent, his sister's best friend, and the girl next door. But one reckless night in their youth took their relationship to a new level. Sara has never forgiven or forgotten the way Aiden brought it crashing down, but she's no longer that girl with the crazy crush. She's a woman in search of her own truth.

The sparks between Aiden and Sara have been smoldering for a very long time. Sara is afraid to take another chance on a man who broke her heart, and Aiden knows better than anyone how dangerous an intense fire can be. As teenagers they weren't ready for each other. Are they ready now?

SO THIS IS LOVE:

Emma Callaway, a hot fire investigator clashes with Max Harrison, a cool homicide detective in SO THIS IS LOVE, the second book in the Callaway Series.

For Max Harrison, love seduces and then destroys. His brother went to prison for love. His father left his family for love. And Max is determined not to follow in their footsteps, until he meets Emma…

Emma runs into burning buildings without an ounce of fear and embraces life as if every day is a new adventure. But while she's fearless on the job, Emma is a coward when it comes to love. Betrayed by an ex-boyfriend, Emma has no intention of putting her heart on the line again, until she meets Max…

As the fires around the city rage, the heat between them ignites in a blaze of passion that's far more dangerous. Will it destroy them or will they finally get everything they ever wanted…

FALLING FOR A STRANGER

Ria is as sexy and sultry as a warm tropical night and as beautifully dangerous as the island drinks she serves at the beachside bar on Isla de los Suenos -- The Island of Dreams. But Ria is not as carefree as she appears, and the pretense is wearing her down. One night she risks everything to escape from reality.

Drew Callaway is a former Navy pilot looking for his own escape from a life that has seen too much tragedy. Meeting Ria is like embracing the sun, and their single night together is life-changing. But the dream quickly fades when Ria is killed in a tragic accident at sea.

Months later, thousands of miles away from where they first met, Drew sees a woman who looks just like Ria. She claims her name is Tory, and that they've never met before, but he can see that she's in trouble, and he can't walk away. He's going to save her whether she wants it or not.

Drew isn't afraid of a little danger, but can he risk losing his heart to a beautiful stranger?

Sean Callaway is the black sheep of the Callaway clan, the sibling who refused to follow in the family tradition of firefighting. Instead, he lives his life in music. On the outside, he's a free-spirited rock star, but on the inside, Sean is haunted by the death of a childhood friend, a tragedy no one knows he witnessed. He's kept the secret for twenty years. But nothing stays hidden forever…

Jessica Schilling, a young widow, moved to San Francisco to reunite her six-year-old stepson with his long-lost identical twin brother, Brandon. She rents a house just around the corner from the Callaways, and while cleaning out the garage for the previous owner Jessica stumbles upon a very old secret—one that someone might just be willing to kill to keep.

Suddenly, Sean is thrust back into the past. He's never thought of himself as a hero, but now he's forced to face his most disturbing memories, not only to solve the riddle of the tragedy that ripped his life apart, but also to save the woman he loves…
