A flirty standalone novel* from New York Times and international bestselling author Elle Kennedy!


One night with him will change her life…


Between her waitressing job, volunteer work, and college classes, there are never enough hours in Maggie Reilly’s day. Especially not for a relationship. Luckily, she’s got the perfect arrangement: a lover she meets three or four times a year. But when she shows up at the hotel expecting to hop into bed with one man, she accidentally ends up with another—Ben Barrett, Hollywood’s most notorious bad boy.


Ben, determined to lay low after another scandal, just wants some much-needed sleep. What he gets is a scorching make-out session with a gorgeous, naked redhead. He won’t accept her apology, but what he will accept is a place to hide out…and if there’s some hot, no-strings sex involved, why the heck not?


But Ben soon discovers that one week with his sassy, bed-hopping waitress is definitely not enough. He wants more. A lot more.

Now he needs to convince relationship-averse Maggie that a bad boy might be oh so good for her—and the best thing that’s ever happened to both of them.


*Previously published in 2008, Bad Apple (formerly Midnight Encounters) features almost entirely new content, including a point-of-view switch. Enjoy this new version of an old favorite!

Julie sacrifices her innocence to keep the peace in her new family, but the real price might be her heart.
Julie never expected her mom's marriage to a wealthy man to turn her world upside down. Now Julie finds herself living in a mansion, attending dinner parties, and Vince, her new stepbrother, hates her.
Vince is crude, mean and irresistible. Julie knows she should stay away from him, but she needs to keep his anger under control so he won't spoil her mom's brand new marriage to Vince's father. But what has Julie gotten herself into? Once she puts herself in his power, she'll never be the same. Can Julie find the good guy inside before it's too late?
Ever since his mother's tragic death, Vince has been filled with anger at his father and at every woman who tried to take his mother's place. Now there is a new woman in his father's life. When she becomes his father's new wife, Vince is consumed with rage. And who has just become his favorite target?
Julie seems sweet and innocent, but she won't stay that way for long if Vince has his way. She's too perfect and too tempting, and Vince needs a release. He'll have her. He'll use her, but if he isn't careful, he might just fall hard for her.
Vince won't go down easy. He doesn't believe Julie is the good girl she pretends to be. Unlike his father, he won't be trapped by a gold digger no matter how innocent she might seem.
But what will Vince do when he finds out that Julie is the real thing? Will he stay and protect her? Or will he run from her and leave her when she needs him the most?
Only in my family could a professional hockey player earning seven million dollars a year be considered a slacker.

I’m at the height of my athletic career. Yet my arrogant brother is always trying to recruit me into the family business: a global security company so secretive that I don’t even know its name. 

Pass, thanks. I don’t need a summer job. 

But the jerk ambushes me with a damsel in distress. That damsel is Alex, the competitive, sassy girl I knew when we were kids. Now she’s a drop-dead gorgeous woman in deep trouble.

So guess who’s on a flight to Hawaii?

It’s going to be a long week in paradise. My job is keeping Alex safe, while her job is torturing me with her tiny bikinis. Or maybe we’re torturing each other. It’s all snark and flirting until the threat against Alex gets serious. And this jock must become her major league protector. 


Moonlighter is a stand-alone novel. No cliffhangers, no prior experience necessary. Contains: hackers, hockey players, and a hotel room with only one bed.
