"I'll leave as soon as you give me what I want."


In another time and place, that might have a nice ring to it. But standing in a Chicago hotel room with a cub reporter as obstinate as she is hot, FBI agent Derek Knight knows he has to play it charming. Something like, "By holding on to that evidence, you're interfering with FBI business, ma'am, and by the way, those long, gorgeous legs of yours would look awfully good wrapped around my. . ." Sure, losing all sense of professionalism may not help his career, but the off-duty perks would be sensational. . .



"Yeah, right, you're an FBI agent. And I can bake a cake from scratch."


Reese Hampton is not giving up the envelope she found in her rental car--the one with the story that could take her from journalistic Siberia straight to the front page. She'll just have to outsmart the certifiably insane Fed with the movie-star good looks. Dodge and weave. Distract and bed. No! Bad hormones, bad! Still, spending time with that unbelievably broad chest up close and personal might just add, um, depth to her story. If only she can let her robe down while keeping her guard up. . .

The solace she sought…

In and out of foster care her whole life, Tiffany Ennis has never had space or privacy, so housesitting a mansion on the coast of Maine with only the absentee rich owner’s dog for company is pure bliss. But her peace is shattered when the injured owner returns to his compound unexpectedly. Tiffany finds him to be sexy and intriguing, showing an interest in her that must be mocking, given that everyone’s always told her she’s plain, nothing special.

Becomes an affair she never expected…

Devin Gold, known in the music industry as Gold Daddy, is usually in New York City attending drop parties and having men and women alike throw themselves at him, and Tiffany wishes he’d stayed there. There’s no reason for a top producer to hole up in Maine in the dead of winter, and every time she turns around he’s asking her prying questions. She finds herself starting to enjoy their intellectual conversations and clever sparring matches, and in a hot minute she’s falling for him. Even knowing that he’s a decade older, filthy rich, and could only want her for his momentary amusement. Yet even when he hosts beautiful and confident guests from the city, he still seems to prefer her company, and is protective when odd things start happening around the house, threatening her safety. But how far is Tiffany willing to go with a man who is still very much married, estranged wife or not, just to feel special?

And all the lines between past and present and right and wrong are blurred…

Getting lucky…means getting more than she bargained for…

I’ve been talking myself out of falling for Matt Carter for a long time. Easier said than done. He’s tall and fit, with sexily mussed red hair and a mischievous glint in his eye that never goes away. He’s been my rock for a decade—there when I needed him for support or just a good laugh. In college, he used to promise that everything would work out all right…and I always believed him. So, when I called him up two weeks ago about my latest fertility issues, first he told a joke, then he promised to get me through it. Which is why I accepted his offer to be my sperm donor.

When I meet him to discuss IVF at his San Francisco mansion—the perks of selling groundbreaking software in his mid-twenties—it’s hard to remind myself I’m strictly in the friend zone. And when he asks me what I want from him, I’m not sure why I tell the truth. “What I want is you.”

What was supposed to be a no-strings agreement gets complicated when we end up in bed…again and again. Matt never wanted to be a father, so I don’t expect him to stick around. A relationship is strictly off the table, because Matt moves on when love comes into the picture. But when we’re together, it’s electric. It’s hotter than friendship, better than sex. What it probably should be is over…but that’s one word I can’t bring myself to say.
