Eden LaCroix loved Billy Buchanan ten years ago, but he ran out on her the night of prom. Now he’s back temporarily and Eden believes a hot fling will help her move on from their tangled past. She wasn’t expecting Billy’s naughty side—or the return of her sometime lover Jon White Feather—to tempt her to submit to her own dark desires.
Although college took Billy away from Eden, it’s a mistake he can rectify now that he’s in town to determine the fate of the community center Eden manages. Except reignited sparks keep getting in the way of his objectivity and the flames only leap higher when Eden’s rock star lover comes home, determined to show Eden—and Billy—the meaning of down and dirty.
Eden considers herself a one-woman man, yet in the arms of Billy and Jon she feels truly beautiful for the first time in her life. But does the sexual healing go far enough to prevent her from falling in love again?
Torn between the love he has…and the love he’s always wanted.
Chassie West Glanzer hasn’t been a stranger to tragedy. So a year of wedded bliss to sexy-as-sin cowboy Trevor Glanzer has brought her the happiness and contentment she never thought she’d find. And running a ranch has mellowed Trevor’s rodeo wanderlust. Then Trevor’s old roping partner ambles up the driveway—throwing Chassie’s life into chaos.
Trevor never expected to see Edgard Mancuso again, after it became clear he couldn’t be the man Edgard needed. Now Edgard has returned from Brazil to sort out their tangled past. Although Trevor is hat-over-bootheels in love with his sweet, feisty wife, he’s plagued by feelings for Edgard he thought he’d buried years ago.
Chassie’s shock that Edgard and Trevor were once lovers turns to fear of losing her husband. Or worse, fear that Trevor will stay with her only out of a sense of duty. Edgard wasn’t sure how he’d feel about Trevor’s wife, but the more time he spends with the big-hearted cowgirl, the deeper their connection becomes. As the three of them test their intimate boundaries together, the sins of the past blur and fade, leaving raw emotion—and unbridled passion.
Passion that could heal them…or cause irreparable damage to their future.

After too many mugs of mulled wine, introverted accountant Holly North lets her best friend guilt her into filling in as Mistress Christmas at Sugar Plums, a Christmas-themed strip club. The combination of a velvet mask and a Mrs. Claus-meets-dominatrix costume gives Holly the courage to approach the hot-bodied man across the room who is as lickable as a candy cane.

One lap dance and their attraction flares hotter than a fireplace on a cold winter evening. And Nick is only too happy to oblige when Holly blurts out her secret Christmas wish…a night filled with sweet and dirty carnal pleasures that will land them both on the naughty list.
