Taking a ride on the wild side is
riskier than she ever imagined…
The mysterious Kenna Jones was the last person to have contact with a
murdered federal informant, and DEA Agent Drake March goes undercover in South
Dakota during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally to unearth the link between the two.
But from the moment Drake encounters the hot-bodied, hot-tempered quick change
artist—he doesn’t trust her—or his instant attraction to her.
Posing as arm candy for bikers during the Rally is a humiliating—albeit
quick—way to earn tuition for a cash-strapped grad student. After Kenna learns
her regular biker patron is dead, she refuses to help the too tempting, too-sexy-for-his-badge
Agent Drake March in his investigation…until he threatens to have her arrested.
When bullets start to fly and Kenna is the target, Drake’s protective
instincts kick in. He quickly realizes the sweet woman is innocent—and in far
over her head.
Fear and desire makes for an explosive combination in the hedonistic
atmosphere among warring motorcycle clubs and shady drug dealers, leading Drake
and Kenna into acting on their mutual lust. But is riding the edge of danger
what makes their intimate moments feel like more? Or is their immediate
connection the start of something real?
With their lives at stake, they have to trust each other before it’s too
late…or will the devil come calling and finally get his due?

The last McKay standing is knocked to his knees…
Three years ago, Dalton McKay looked across the altar and saw the woman he knew he’d love for the rest of his life…only it wasn’t his bride-to-be. So he took the McKays’ love-’em-and-leave-’em reputation to new heights, fleeing the ceremony and Wyoming. Now a family crisis has brought Dalton back to Sundance, giving him an opportunity to demonstrate to everyone—especially the woman he thought he lost—that he’s a changed man.
Aurora “Rory” Wetzler has fallen for cowboy hottie Dalton’s smooth-talkin’ ways far too often. He claims he can convince her that he’s playing for keeps this time. Fine. She’ll call that bluff. She can’t ignore their intense chemistry or resist smokin’ hot sex, but she knows she’ll never gamble her heart again.
Dalton has plenty of fences to mend with the McKays, but his biggest fear is that Rory doesn’t believe they have a future. He’ll have to pull out all the stops to prove to her that he can be her only Romeo for a lifetime.
Warning: Contains a sexy cowboy who tames his sassy lady love with his romantic and his kinky side.
Ambition has always been his biggest downfall...until he meets her.
World champion bulldogger Sutton Grant works hard on the road, but his quiet charm has earned the nickname "The Saint" because he's never been the love 'em and leave 'em type with the ladies. When he’s sidelined by an injury, he needs help keeping his horse in competition shape, but he fears trying to sweet-talk premier horse trainer London Gradsky is a losing proposition--because the woman sorta despises him.
London is humiliated when her boyfriend dumps her for a rodeo queen. What makes the situation worse? She’s forced to see the lovebirds on the rodeo circuit every weekend. In an attempt to save face, London agrees to assist the notoriously mild, but ruggedly handsome Sutton Grant with his horse training problem on one condition: Sutton has to pretend to be her new boyfriend.
But make believe doesn't last long between the sassy cowgirl and the laid-back bulldogger. When the attraction between them ignites, London learns that sexy Sutton is no Saint when that bedroom door closes; he's the red-hot lover she's always dreamed of.
The more time they spend together, the more Sutton realizes he wouldn’t mind being roped and tied to the rough and tumble cowgirl for real…
