Loving a man could be wonderful. Loving a man who loved so many women was dreadful. Rachel Stuart had grown up around Sheik Rais’ farm, starting off as friends and riding the woods with him whenever his official business brought him to Washington, D.C. Being in town only occasionally didn’t stop him from having the best and most beautiful horses and, as Rachel grew up, she learned to love those horses, and the man.
When her love for him became too painful, she had to move away, only visiting her father, the sheik’s horse trainer, when Rais was not there.
Until one day when he arrived earlier than anticipated, causing Rachel’s heart to beat frantically, her body to shiver with both fear and delight as he looked at her with those dark, penetrating eyes. Eyes that were now focused on her, but she refused to be just another in a long line of mistresses.
Sheik Rais Sayyid Tarif Zaman couldn’t believe the beauty who walked into the small cottage. He’d known Rachel all her life and his feelings had changed as well. What had started off as sisterly affection had grown into something much deeper, significantly stronger.
He’d waited years for her to grow up. And had seen her become more beautiful over the years. But now she was an adult and was mature enough to understand his feelings. She tried to fight it, but the attraction that blossomed between them was not to be denied. He would have her in his life, he promised himself. He just had to convince the shy, young beauty to let him love her as she deserved.
Years ago, Jake had fallen for Emily – hard! One look, and he knew that Emily was The One. He’d thought she felt the same way, but one morning, she was gone. Not just gone from his bed, but gone from her apartment and his life!
Fast forward to now, and Jake is startled to see Emily, looking more beautiful than before, strolling into his office and offering to partner with him on a system that…it could change the world! Dare he trust her again? Could he believe her soft sighs of pleasure? Or should he keep his distance from her and keep his heart and mind safe?
Emily walked into Jake’s office and…he was more amazing than she’d remembered! Taller, more handsome and much more…everything! Emily might love him, but every day was a gift and she didn’t know if she’d have many more. Her future was always uncertain. But she could take what he offered…and secretly love him with her whole heart and mind and soul!
For Olivia, it was ten times harder because…Chris Bishop was taller and more amazing than she remembered!
He was also the Chief of Police and hot as sin! Olivia had thought that her feelings for Chris were buried and gone. Apparently not! So when he walked into her new bookstore, the sparks were hot enough to ignite things.
Chris remembered Olivia…who wouldn’t? She was beautiful and ambitious. So it was a surprise to find her back in town. He’d made a mistake years before. But he was older and wiser now. He wasn’t going to make another one. Not where Olivia was concerned. Now he just needed to figure out how to get her to trust that they could make it!
In love for years with the last bastion of the 'burg's eligible bachelors, Garrett Merrick, Cher worked hard at making him laugh. Being one of the guys. Having him in her life the only way she could. All this knowing he was in love with another woman.

Until the night when Cher took Garrett's back and things changed. The Merrick family loves deep. They also protect fiercely. And with his eyes finally open, Garrett sees the woman who truly is for him and he goes after her.
Olivia was the best thing that ever happened to me. But she’s a good girl, and I have a side that is far too dark for a minister’s daughter. When she started talking about plans after graduation, the only thing I could do was run back to Italy—to protect her from me. But she’s back in my life, and I need a wife before I can take full ownership of our failing vineyard and hotel. Only problem is, I want her again. No way can I put my hands on her. One kiss, one taste, could unleash the side of me that would only scare her.
If she discovers my dark side, I don’t know if she’ll flee back to the states, or surrender to me. What she doesn’t know is she already owns me, and if she leaves, I’ll never be the same.

Seven years ago, Elana Catelano fell hard for Gaston Montebello, a tall, handsome, merciless Spanish businessman who swept her off her feet. They had dreams, a future and everything seemed rosy. But one day, he disappeared from her life. She found out that they were finished when she saw pictures of him on the internet with other women. Her heart ached for the love she’d thought they’d shared and her mind focused on moving ahead, getting on with her life.
All of a sudden, Gaston is back! He was in her apartment and looking even more alluring than before! What does he want? Why is he here? Nothing makes sense anymore. She just knew that she couldn’t trust him with her heart again. It had been too painful the last time, she wouldn’t put herself through that again.
Gaston was stuck. His father was dying and his last request was to see this one book again. Unfortunately, the book was being held hostage by a man Gaston hated. The terms of its surrender?

Seeing Damon Petrov across the dance floor sparked something inside of Gabby that was unfamiliar and dangerously thrilling. She couldn’t believe it when he approached her, offering her coffee and conversation. The exchange melted into a weekend of incredibly moving encounters that made her shudder with excitement and desire.
Unfortunately, the end of that weekend came much too quickly when Damon disappeared without a word while she slept. Gabby struggled to recover from her encounter with the most amazing man she’d ever met. She was finally pulling herself together when he swooped back into her life. She was furious that he thought he could just march back to her with no explanation or apology for the way he’d left. But the shock of discovering that she was pregnant overshadowed her anger, leaving her shaking and terrified.
Damon had finally met a woman who wanted just him, not his money or the prestige that came from being seen on his arm or even the creature comforts his wealth could offer her. Gabriella Smith was sweetness and refreshing honesty all wrapped up in a luscious, sexy package. But when she got too close, he ran, pushing her away because he didn’t want to deal with feelings that he had previously associated with pain and heartache.
So when he discovered she was pregnant, he moved quickly to move her into a situation where he could ensure that the baby survived, protecting his unborn offspring.
He quickly re-discovered that Gabby wasn’t like the other women he’d been with in the past. And as he protected his unborn child, he forgot to protect his heart from those feelings that had terrified him the first time around. Gabby’s tender touch and sweet sighs of happiness worked their way through the protective barriers he’d built up over the years and he found himself defenseless against her smile and gentle touch.
Bryce Simpson did the only thing he could. He spurned Marjorie Steel. Even though he’ll be living on her ranch, he is determined to stay away from her. She’s worthy of more than he can even think about giving, especially now that long-buried memories are surfacing and he’s learning that his father’s sins may go even deeper than he imagined.
Bryce’s rejection destroys Marjorie, and she descends to a dark place she thought she’d abandoned forever. She emerges stronger, though, and is determined not to let heartbreak rule her life. Change is the answer, she’s sure, so she makes plans—plans that include a handsome personal trainer she meets at the gym.
When Bryce and Marjorie are thrown together, though, their ravenous hunger for each other takes over, leaving both of them more vulnerable than they realize.
