He’s lost all hope…until she changes everything.

Master illusionist Lorenzo wants nothing to do with the Pyr. His dragon nature is just another secret to hide and another detail to juggle, like ensuring that each of his Las Vegas magic shows is a true spectacle. Until he feels the burn of his firestorm and his whole world shifts….

Cassie Redmond is tired of photographing celebrities. She wants to pursue her dream of serious photography—despite the lucrative offer for a shot of a dragon shifter. Las Vegas is the last place she wants to be, but Lorenzo arouses more than her curiosity when he shifts shape as the finale of his show. Instead of forcing him to reveal his secrets, Cassie gets swept away by this illusionist’s masterful touch.

Lorenzo wants to satisfy the firestorm and put it behind him. But Cassie is hard to forget—and he can’t ignore the danger when Slayers target the mate Lorenzo didn’t believe he wanted…

“In the seventh Dragonfire novel, the defeat of one Pyr’s enemies only means that a new threat rises in the form of the crafty and deadly Chen. The hero in this chapter has long denied his dragon shifting nature, but on the eve of his greatest stunt, fate intervenes. Cooke’s long-running series continues to be a sexy and thrilling winner!”—Romantic Times

Only one woman can persuade him to embrace his powers…

Brandon Merrick is determined to banish his shifter nature forever. The charismatic tattooed surfer is on the cusp of the ultimate challenge – to prove himself on the whitecaps of Hawaii and secure his future as a pro surfer. But his dragon isn’t prepared to be tamed so easily…

One look at marine biologist Liz Barrett ignites the spark of the firestorm: Liz is his destined mate and his chance for happiness. While Brandon sees their first night together as just the beginning, his dragon seizes the upper hand. Awakening in the company of a raging dragon challenges Liz’s ability to believe her own eyes. Can Brandon accept his inner beast in time to make it work with Liz?

Neither one realizes that Brandon is caught in an ancient Slayer‘s scheme to enslave him. When the deadly plot ignites, the very island will be at risk…and Brandon and his mate could be the ultimate sacrifice.

“Dodging your birthright is the theme of the latest terrific Dragonfire novel, as both the hero and heroine attempt to deny their bloodlines. Cooke introduces readers to the world of witches, opening up other intriguing plot possibilities. Ember’s Kiss is filled with passion and the power of self-discovery — another Cooke classic!”—Romantic Times Book Review

They will sacrifice anything to regain the loves they've lost…

Alexander knew he had to fulfill his duty to his kind, the dragon shape shifters called the Pyr, even at the price of abandoning his new wife and young son. After he and his fellows were enchanted for centuries, then finally set free in a future long after their own time, Alexander feared he would never return to his love. Against all odds, the darkfire crystal makes his dream come true, flinging him across the centuries to the world he left behind. Is this his chance to regain the life he lost? Has Katina waited for him? Or has the darkfire crystal sent him back in time for some mysterious purpose of its own?

They will sacrifice anything to regain the loves they've lost...

Damien, the Heartbreaker of the dragon warriors called the Pyr, can’t forget Petra, the only woman who could both captivate him and destroy him. He’s haunted by their firestorm, the prophecy that compelled him to leave her—and her subsequent death. When the darkfire crystal takes the Dragon Legion to the underworld, Damien seizes the chance to save his son. To his surprise he finds Petra just as enticing as ever...and still pregnant. When his kiss makes their baby stir to life again, they both hope for a different future. Can they learn from the past and trust each other? Even if they solve the riddle of the prophecy, will they be able to escape the underworld, save their son and claim the promise of the firestorm?

When the darkfire crystal takes the dragon shape shifters Thad and Drake to an unknown location, only fulfilling his firestorm matters to Thad. Little does he know that in following its light to his destined mate, he’s stepping into the realm of the gods, a place so forbidden to mortals that any who enter it must die. Aura has always been skeptical of long-term promises—but Thad is irresistible. No sooner does Aura surrender than the gods demand their due of her dragon shifter. Can she save Thad and make the dream of the firestorm come true?

One spark can banish every shadow in his heart.

The dragon shape shifter Thorolf is known for an impressive lineage, raw power in battle, and the impulsive indulgence of his appetites. The last has made him an outcast from his fellow Pyr, and even his hunt for their dangerous opponent, the Slayer Chen, hasn’t helped. Seduced by Chen’s ally Viv Jason, Thorolf finds himself drawn into a trap, as bait to lure his fellow Pyr to extinction. The only one to come to his aid is a woman he already knows to be a thief—does he dare to trust her with not just his own life but the survival of his kind?

Chandra has planned for centuries for a battle against evil that she knows will determine the world’s future. She’s never wasted time on the pleasures of the physical realm, much less experienced passion—until the firestorm sparks between herself and Thorolf, demanding more from her than she ever expected to give. Will the firestorm provide new power, or be a dangerous distraction that gives Chen the chance to triumph over the Pyr forever?

Problem solved—until Lauren's husband cheats and Kyle isn't just the bearer of bad news, but the man she turns to for comfort.

Lauren demands it all...
When Lauren's marriage implodes, she wants to lose herself in pleasure and sensation. Who knows that territory better than Kyle who seduced her so deliciously years before?

When Lauren can’t get enough, will Kyle take a chance on wanting more?

Deborah Cooke's Flatiron Five World.

Once upon a recession, five friends banded together to find success. Ten years later, their exclusive fitness club, Flatiron Five, is the hottest destination in Manhattan. People flock to F5 to get fit, to get lucky, and even, to fall in love. The founding partners have been immune to F5’s spell—at least, so far...

The Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances and romantic comedies are set in New York City, and feature the partners in a successful gym. The books should be read in order.

1. Simply Irresistible
Tyler needs a fake date for his sister's wedding and the pretty woman who works in his building seems like the perfect choice. Little does he know that Amy has a taste for hot romance novels, much less that he'll take on a secret identity to ensure that he's the one to fulfill her fantasies. What if Amy wants his alter ego more than Tyler?

2. Addicted to Love
Kyle has always known that Ty's sister Lauren is the One, even before he realized she was Ty's sister. He also knows that he isn't the right guy for her and that he'll only let her down. When Lauren's marriage collapses, though, and she asks Kyle for sexual satisfaction, he can't say no to a fling. In this second chance romance, both Kyle and Lauren have to reconsider their assumptions. Can they find a happily ever after together?

3. In the Midnight Hour
Haley wants to learn therapeutic massage and the guy who visits his mom at the hospital and eases her pain with his touch is clearly the teacher she needs. He's also incredibly hot. She learns a lot more from Damon than she anticipates, when his touch awakens her sensual side, but Damon knows his nightmares mean he can never fall asleep with anyone. He thinks he's better off alone, but can Haley heal him with her love?

4. Some Guys Have All the Luck
Cassie returns home to the small town she couldn't wait to leave, only to meet the high school bad boy one more time. Reid is a local success, against all odds, but just as tempting as before. Cassie surrenders to a fling, just to satisfy her curiosity, not realizing that Reid wants a whole lot more. In fact, he's hoping to convince Cassie to stay this time...

5. Going to the Chapel
This short story is subtitled Two Weddings and a Baby, which pretty much tells you what it's about.

6. Bad Case of Loving You (January 2019)

In In the Midnight Hour, the partners add a tattoo shop to F5's services for members. A legendary tattoo artist, Chynna, runs the shop and gives away a tattoo on each full moon. The rumor is that the tattoo will bring true love to the recipient. Cassie gets the first one in In the Midnight Hour. 

The Secret Heart Ink series are shorter contemporary romances, telling the stories of those full moon tattoos and their bearers. They should be read in order. The first three feature three friends who were on a girls' weekend in NYC when one of them won the first tattoo.

1. Snowbound
Olivia doesn't believe in magical tattoos or relationships lasting forever, but the tattoo is a good reminder to take advantage of everything life offers.

Her best friends help her plan one seduction, an hour with Spencer that will disguise her identity from him - but once Spencer realizes it's Olivia who is seducing him, he changes all the rules in his determination to turn this fling into forever.

2. Spring Fever
Reyna wants a taste of the new resident in town, a hot guy who walks like a cop and is just what she believes she needs to end a long run of celibacy. But Kade wants more than just sex with the gorgeous woman who runs the most successful business in town, selling cupcakes - he intends to unravel Reyna's secrets and once he starts, there's no stopping him from falling love. Can he convince Reyna to take a chance on love again?

3. One Hot Summer Night
One hot summer night, Lexi takes a chance and seduces Gabe, whose intensity and principles have interested her for a long time. Little does she realize that Gabe has been waiting for her to make a choice, so that he can share a secret with her. The revelation changes Lexi's life, but can she find a way to have a future with Gabe? 

4. Under the Mistletoe (coming 2018)
Chynna, the tattoo artist, travels to Honey Hill for Gabe and Lexi's wedding, never guessing that she'll find some romance of her own over Christmas. Can Trevor convince her to try for forever, or are Chynna's scars too deep?

Where did he learn therapeutic massage? Even though she’s a nurse, Haley’s interest in him and his skill isn’t just professional.

One night, she takes a chance and asks for a lesson from him, only to discover that she has a hunger for the sensation only Damon can satisfy.
