A Treasure Worth Keeping: Caralyn McCreigh has one shot at getting out of an arranged marriage: find the famed Izzy’s Treasure and buy her way out of a future she doesn’t want. Tristan Youngblood, captain of the Adventurer and future Earl of Winterbourne, is more than willing to sell his services on the high seas for a chance to wiggle out of his own matrimony fate. Together they must ferret out the impossible—or does the real fortune lie in their ability to find love against all odds?

The Pirate’s Lady: Cate Whitfield is stunned to learn that Captain Alexander Chase, the bloodthirsty pirate who murdered her betrothed, is someone her father holds in high regard. Feisty Cate mesmerizes Alex, but the former pirate isn’t about to let her public accusations deter his own agenda for vengeance. He’s returned to Promise, New Jersey, to retaliate against the man who murdered his father … the man who happens to be Cate’s father. Can these two wounded hearts find out the truth before it’s too late, or is their love doomed to walk the plank?

Devil’s Cove: Captain Devlin Limmerick, the pirate feared as the Devil, eagerly takes ownership of the abandoned Devil Cove’s Manor in his quest for vengeance on his past. Only Grace, a beautiful, blind medium, can aid him with his nefarious plan. Yet even though she finds herself drawn to the Devil’s darkness, she refuses to sacrifice her soul to set his revenge in motion. Plunged into the throes of passion and danger, they discover the only way out of the evil closing in on them is to summon the courage to believe in true love.

Set a course for adventure with these four couples as they take to the high seas only to find new romance.

Little White Lies: Attorney Madalyn Russell may have dumped her fiancé at the altar, but no way is she rejecting the honeymoon cruise. Unfortunately, she didn’t cancel the newlywed package, and now she’s stuck as a single in a lovebird world. That is, until a devilishly handsome man with a secret, Royce Spencer, offers a deliciously indecent proposal: He’ll pose as her husband in exchange for companionship during the cruise. She can’t deny their attraction, but will their little white lies make too many waves when Royce’s past finally catches up with him?

Romancing the Seas: When a relationship gone bad sinks sous-chef Pippa Renshaw’s plans, she swaps her job in a prestigious London restaurant to become the head chef on a cruise ship sailing around New Zealand. It’s a great escape plan until a mix-up means she has to share a suite with her new boss, the delectable Jonathon Eagleton, who is no happier about the circumstances. These two can handle the simmer… but when the heat turns up, is it a recipe for true love?

Reach for Tomorrow: Nurse Claire Frazier was devoted to her fiancé, until he threw that love back in her face. Disillusioned and burning with shame, she books passage on a world cruise, along with an intriguing collection of fellow passengers: an attractive second officer, a detective, and a confidence artist. Is love waiting once again at the next port of call?

Magic Moment: Shortly after the FBI brings in Laura Roberts for questioning regarding activities at the warehouse where she keeps the books, a gang of thugs snatch her off the street. Chase Donovan boarded his boat intending to spend a few peaceful days getting his head together, but instead he finds trouble when he interrupts two men assaulting a woman in his cabin. What’s more, they claim his father told them to do it. Chase doesn’t want to believe his father could hurt anyone. Laura doesn’t understand why she’s a target. Can they put their mutual attraction and time on his yacht to work to discover the truth before someone dies?

Devil’s Deal: CEO billionaire Lucas Marx isn’t used to hearing the word “no.” So when the gorgeous Bailey Walters coldly turns down his lines, he becomes focused on finding a way into her heart. Golden boy Lucas is especially dangerous for Bailey, since he’s her boss’s ex, and the woman wants him back. But when the firm assigns Bailey to a design project at Lucas’s home, their attraction soon becomes too hot to handle. Is this love or just a game with high stakes? An RWA Golden Heart winner.

Devil’s Cove: Captain Devlin Limmerick, the pirate feared as the Devil, eagerly takes ownership of the abandoned Devil Cove’s Manor in his quest for vengeance on his past. Only Grace, a beautiful, blind medium, can aid him with his nefarious plan. Yet even though she finds herself drawn to the Devil’s darkness, she refuses to sacrifice her soul to set his revenge in motion. Plunged into the throes of passion and danger, they discover the only way out of the evil closing in on them is to summon the courage to believe in true love.

Date with the Devil: Victoria Everett has paid the ultimate price for her past: her daughter’s life. So when the man she blames for all of her problems asks for help, she refuses to play. But her refusal doesn’t stop this rogue FBI agent—Victoria must confront her past in order to solve a murder, protect her family, and find the love of her life.

The Devil She Knew: Cassidy Hoake was the only witness to a reputed mobster murdering his girlfriend. Now the man’s skipped bail and hiding is Cassidy’s only option. She certainly can’t afford complications like Clay Cestra, whose police uniform fits like a second skin and who looks even better with his clothes off. But he is the law and she is a fugitive. A life with him means risking everything to confront her demons and defeat the devil.

Who can resist a man in uniform? Sheriffs, marshals, and bounty hunters bring law and order to the Wild West, but it’s the ladies taking care of business who manage to steal their hearts in this captivating collection.

A Kiss in the Morning Mist: Former U.S. Marshal Eamon MacDermott failed to stop the Logan gang’s crime wave, and now he’s hung up his guns and turned his back on life altogether. That is, until he meets widow Theodosia “Theo” Danforth, who harbors an unshakable belief that everyone needs kindness. When the outlaw gang resurfaces to destroy Theo’s ranch, Eamon must choose between donning his weapons again to extract vengeance and forging a new future with Theo.

Lady Broke: Boston socialite Christie Wallace is determined to bring the Everett gang to justice for the crimes they committed against her family. Bounty hunter Nat Randall tried to bring these killers to trial once before, but the law let him down. Frontier justice is all either of them have left, and they’re not about to let anything get in that way—not even when the sparks fly and they’re torn between pursuing the outlaws or each other.

Seduced by the Outlaw: Tamar Freeman has everything under control as the owner of Kansas City’s local newspaper until undercover lawman Amos Tanner responds to a lonely hearts ad that’s actually a trap to catch a burglary ring. To all he meets, he’s Deadwood Dick, an outlaw and the last man Tamar should fall for. But the fire between them burns hot, and his final heist doesn’t go quite as planned. Will she find the strength to give up her safe world and risk a chance at the life she’s long desired?

One Night’s Desire: Rustlers, claim jumpers, and fire—nothing will stop Kiera Alden from her goal: getting back to her sisters in Boston. But a murder accusation sets Marshal Evrett Quinn on her trail. She may be able to escape prison bars and eventually prove her innocence, but she can’t escape Ev’s love.
