Rule #1: Don’t fall for your crime boss father’s favorite killer
NADIA fell for the most feared hitter on her late father’s payroll. Thorne’s a lost cause—as dangerous and damaged as they come, but she’s not sorry. Without Thorne she wouldn’t have their beautiful boy.
Now Thorne’s burst back into her life after being gone for two years, arrogant and demanding, making himself right at home. She can’t let him figure out Benny is his…so she enlists a friend to play their son’s daddy.
THORNE knows exactly how Nadia sees him—as a brute and a killer willing to play her sexy games. And that’s how it has to stay. Leaving her way back when was the hardest thing he ever did, but it was the only way to protect her. Now his undercover mission has thrown them back together…and it drives him crazy to see her with another man…and another man’s baby.

When her long lost sister – a prostitute - is won in a card game by a brutal drug cartel, Zelda knows what she has to do: take her place. Save her.

She’s slept with dangerous criminals before; she can do it again.
Hugo Martinez is one of South America’s most lethal and wanted men, a legendary mercenary living on a windswept mountain. Even at the height of the war he wasn’t in the habit of taking women captive, but the American whore has seen his face. And he and the orphan boy need a cook. He shouldn’t want this woman, but there’s something so unusual about her…
Little by little, Zelda finds herself falling for her captor…but is he the killer she’s been hunting all these years?

Playing the fake girlfriend of arrogant secret agent Cole Hawkins? It’s the last thing Angel wants to do. But she can handle anything for a weekend…right?
ANGEL left the safecracking game five years ago, and she’s worked hard to build an honest life. But when a beloved aunt is kidnapped, she must reunite with her girl jewel thief gang to get the unique ransom: a psycho’s prized diamonds.
It’s a simple job that turns into a nightmare, thanks to a surprisingly clever—and searingly sexy—security guard named Cole Hawkins, a man who might be more than he seems.
COLE is stunned when he catches Angel cracking the man’s supposedly uncrackable safe. She's just what he needs, so he blackmails her into posing as his fiance. He can’t worry that she hates him and he certainly shouldn't worry about her safety. She’s just some criminal…right?
But the further they fall into Borgola’s web, the more he realizes he was wrong about Angel…and the more real those fake kisses start to feel.
“…fast, fun, and sexy. Angel and Cole have great chemistry before, during, and after the two get down and dirty.” ~Dear Author

After a devastating betrayal, ex-DEA agent Samuel "The Ghost" Carpenter devotes his life to searching for the person who cost him not only his job but nearly his life. When he discovers a link between the man he's hunting and a beautiful executive assistant, he realizes the path to his target is seduction—a task he's all too eager to undertake, since he can't seem to resist the alluring beauty.
…turns into a dangerous seduction.
