A windy day...a flyaway signboard...a hideous crunch. Sophie Calhoun can't imagine how she'll pay for the damage to the luxurious car.
Already cash-strapped, she's struggling to launch her new interior design studio and make a home for her daughter. She's only days away from disaster.
Out of the sleek black Jaguar storms super-yacht tycoon Rafe Severino. Steaming mad. Totally gorgeous. And desperately in need of a top-line decorator for his spectacular new harbor-side mansion.
Sophie fears her dream contract comes with strings that tie her to the boat-builder's bed. No matter how she tries to escape, he's always there - implacable and irresistible.
She knows he doesn't want a preoccupied single mother, but concealing her daughter's existence from the man she's falling in love with is getting harder and harder. If he discovers her lies, she'll instantly lose everything.
Warning: contains one determined golden-skinned man who knows his way around boats, bodies and bed-sheets.

Snow is dusting the mountain tops as the jet glides in, and she’s shocked to be collected by tall, dark internet billionaire, Matthew McLeod. Where is the woman she spoke with on the phone? 

After a disastrous first marriage, Matthew has lived in a freezing void. He’s buried himself in his work to keep the demons at bay, but now there’s a potent new threat tearing at his resolve. Job-seeker Kate is dragging his ruthlessly supressed emotions back to the surface. Temptation he’s easily shrugged off in the past now eats him alive. Can he persuade her to stay long enough to fan the smouldering sparks between them until they burst into white-hot flames?

Architect Anton has plans to demolish, rebuild, and make a million bucks. Jetta is determined to renovate, remember her Gran, and stay well out of Anton’s reach. A midnight disaster changes everything and he carries her, screaming, to sleep in the only safe bed in the damaged house – his.
Although she knows he plans to smash her inheritance to pieces, Jetta admits Anton has so far behaved honorably. As she gets to know her handsome housemate better, she wonders if he could be the man she needs to put her crippling fear to rest. Taking courage in both hands, she turns their shaky living arrangement on its head by shyly producing her grandmother’s ancient copy of The Joy of Sex.
