GAMBLING ON LOVE CAN BE DEADLY
Injured while helping capture a notorious serial killer, all New Orleans firefighter Connor Scott wants is to visit his grandmother in Florida for a few days of rest, relaxation and recovery. The last thing he expects is to be stuck on a bus loaded with senior citizens—and his ex-wife.
Alyssa Scott thought she'd left the baggage of her old life far behind when she moved to Florida. Instead she's chaperoning the senior group and dealing with the one person she never expected to see—her ex-husband.
Sparks fly and passions reawaken. Neither Connor nor Alyssa can deny the feelings they still hold for each other. But a sinister threat from Connor's past thrusts them into a perilous game of cat-and-mouse to stop a ruthless killer before time runs out. Will Connor gamble everything to save the woman he loves?
Jennifer "Jinx" Marucci witnesses her brother's shooting and the leader of New Orleans' Russian mob thinks her brother, Carlo, passed something valuable into her keeping—and demands its return. Every instinct tells her to trust no one, but what choice does she have except to turn to the police?
Detective Remy Lamoreaux can't believe his luck when Jinx walks through the doors of the New Orleans Police Department. He's tried for years to bring down Vladimir Dubshenko. Fate has finally handed him the opportunity to go head-to-head with the vicious mobster and lock him up for good before Jinx becomes one more casualty in Dubshenko's lust for power.
Intrigue, kidnapping and danger combine to keep Remy and Jinx constantly on the move. One thing is certain—if they stop running, they die.
The chemistry burns fast and furious between them, but when Macie's nephews vanish, evidence connects the boys' disappearance back to New Orleans and the newest party drug flooding its streets. It's a race against the clock as Carlo and Macie search for the missing boys. Will they find her nephews before time runs out?
He groaned. This was torture. Being trapped in a room with a beautiful woman was just about every man’s fantasy, but he had to remember that this was just pretend.
Keeping up the charade...
For wealthy playboy Dane Prescott business and pleasure go hand in hand.

A. Getting THREE billionaires for Christmas!
Three Wise Men is a series of three books set in the sub-tropical Northland of New Zealand following the stories of three billionaire brothers and the single mums they fall in love with.
This year, Ophelia Clark isn’t looking forward to Christmas. Her ex-husband, Dillon, doesn’t want to be her ex anymore, and their daughter, Summer, wants him there on Christmas Day, so Ophelia’s finding it difficult to convince him their marriage is over. The last thing she needs is to start dating someone else and cloud the issue. And then the cute doctor she’s had her eye on finally asks her out.
Research scientist Charlie King has given up on relationships. Going without sex is a major drawback to that plan, but even though he has an IQ one point off Einstein’s, he considers himself hopeless with women. When he discovers the gorgeous Ophelia is now single, though, he decides to give himself one last chance to find love.
Logic tells Ophelia to wait until her divorce is through before getting involved with a new man, but her body hungers for the sexy scientist, and it doesn’t help that Charlie can’t keep his hands off her. Christmas looms full of the magic of their new love affair, and then Summer falls ill and ends up in hospital.
Ophelia’s torn between duty and desire. Should she follow her head and close this chapter of her life before she opens the next? Or should she follow her heart and give herself the ideal present—the prospect of forever with the man of her dreams?
