Prelude to a Seduction

Sold by Simon and Schuster
2

David Broussard is a handsome, successful businessman with the unsavory reputation of a player. He's known for his allure, charming personality, and ability to draw and seduce women. He's gifted by nature with an unbelievably erotic scent that emanates from his body--natural pheromones that attract women in droves. Having used this advantage in the past with great success, he expects the same results as he sets his sights on Sarona Maxwell. He finds himself fascinated to the point of obsession with Sarona and has made it his priority to woo her, to seduce her, and to get her into his bed. However, in his quest to captivate and capture, he finds Sarona is more woman than he's bargained for, and he'll need more than cunning, charm, and nature's gift to achieve his goal.

Sarona is undeniably attracted to the charisma and roguish good looks of David Broussard, and like any red-blooded female alive she's fallen victim to his intoxicating scent. Unfortunately, his reputation for being on the prowl and always in search of his next conquest precedes him. She has no illusions he has any interest in her. Considering her size and the fact that she's black, she's sure she doesn't fit his usual preference for eye candy. She sees herself as merely a spectator, observing from a distance his penchant to hunt, and she watches him play his game of pursuit, seduction, and surrender.

Sarona has no idea that the rules of the game have changed. She doesn't realize that there's no such thing as being safe standing on the sidelines and that now, suddenly she's become the prey set in the sights of the hunter.

Passion is never too hot to handle when these six sensual couples bring the heat between the sheets, and end up finding a love that sears their hearts for all time.

Prelude to a Seduction: Successful, handsome, charming businessman David Broussard has one flaw: his unsavory reputation as a player. His natural pheromones attract women in droves, until he sets his sights on Sarona Maxwell, who knows her own worth in this game. She's going to watch this hunt from the sidelines...but that's not a move the heart allows when it comes to seduction.

Inventing Sin: English professor Gabriella Kurtz tells colleagues she's dating the perfect guy: big and masculine but gentlemanly, and capable of mind-blowing sex all weekend. Problem is, he's not real...until ex-military man Duncan Sinclair, Sin to his friends, enters the picture, on a mission to take out an undercover terrorist posing as an accomplished academic.

The Real Thing: Art expert Gemma Gilmore can easily spot a fake from across a crowded gallery, and smoking-hot Mac Buchanan doesn't fit with the auction scene. He does fit in her bed, however, until she learns he's the prime investigator when a $50 million painting she authenticated turns out to be a fake. Time and again, passion draws them together, but they're driven apart by an ever-increasing web of lies, setups, and betrayals. Will the truth shatter their relationship, or will they discover their intense connection is the real thing?

His Fantasy Maid: On the eve of Jake Sinclair's bachelor party, his best man surprises him with a fantasy maid named Amy. Clad in a bikini, she cleans his house and jump starts his heart. A few days later, Jake crashes his car and wakes in the hospital emergency room where his fantasy maid is now wearing scrubs and wielding a stethoscope. Is she a hallucination, or is his fantasy about to take a new turn that leads him down a different wedding aisle?

Her New Worst Enemy: Ellie Holdsworthy is willing to do anything save her BFF from marrying the wrong man. Even if that means sucking up to her brother's best mate, commitment phobic, playboy businessman Gideon DeLancy, to hold an intervention at his Georgian manor. He doesn't intend to fall for his friend's snarky sister, and he sure as hell doesn't expect their weekend to develop into a full-on sex-fest. But a torrid weekend affair should be the easiest thing in the world to walk away from, so why are they finding it so difficult?

Blitzkrieg Love: Traumatized by her parents' deaths, Beatrice Stevens immerses her life in dancing, where she can escape from the fears that haunt her. Anthony Gowl wants Beatrice from the moment she bumps into him, a desire that becomes a burning need after he sees her perform. She's willing to step out of her comfort zone to explore the attraction, but will his savior complex prove to be more than she can handle, or the torch she needs to incinerate her nightmares and melt her heart?

Seduction is the name of the game for these seven charming bad boys. Will the love of a good woman tame their wild ways? Find out in this discounted digital collection.

Spiraling: Amy Astor, America’s ice princess, is exactly who boy-band-heartthrob-turned-Hollywood-leading-man Shane Marx needs to help him land his next starring role and break out of stereotyped casting. But Hollywood’s power brokers will cry “cut!” on both of their careers unless they can learn that love is stronger than addiction.

Strangers in the Night: When Jake Kelly, Chicago’s conservative mayoral candidate, and Keila Diaz, a spirited violinist, work together to create a music program for the city’s public school system as part of his platform for education reform, the sparks are combustive. But will voters give this pair a thumbs up?

It’s Been You: Marketing manager Tiana Holliday snags her dream job at an award-winning agency in New York City, but cocky playboy Nathaniel Lawson, her old grad-school nemesis, is her new officemate. When their competition to manage a lucrative sports car account and nab a big promotion erupts into an all-out battle of desire, they discover that challenging each other outside the boardroom is even more satisfying than advertised.

Her Knight in Black Leather: When his father falls ill, Michael Brant returns to the hometown he ditched years ago. His first night in town, he rescues a damsel in distress who has no clue about his family ties. But Cat can’t continue to treat him like a one-night stand when Michael’s dark past surfaces, putting her in danger. Can he find a way to keep her safe without risking his heart?

Worth the Wait: Playboy and fitness instructor Jared Patterson seems like the perfect candidate to help Tasha Smith lose her long-held V-card. But what starts out as a one-time thing quickly turns into an affair neither wants to stop—even when it might get in the way of their futures.

The Bargain: Ladies’ man Michael Kingston desperately wants to atone for past mistakes, but his younger brother refuses to speak to him. So Michael strikes a deal with tomboy Shannon Mahoney: If she gets Drew to hear him out, Michael will mentor Shannon in how to win his brother’s heart. But what’s the next step when two unlikely allies discover they enjoy each other’s company far more than either expected? Maybe love isn’t about reinventing yourself after all.

Nothing’s Sweeter than Candy: Brice Coleman has long enjoyed the spoils of the battle of the sexes, one female conquest at a time. That is, until he meets Candace Brown, who, after two failed relationships, no longer believes in Prince Charming. What’s a guy got to do to heal his woman’s broken heart?
