Farrell Black could hardly blame Jenna for leaving after the shootout that almost cost their daughter her life. Now he’ll stop at nothing to protect them, and he's spent the last three months fortifying his private estates, amassing enough armor to supply a small army, and preparing for the moment when she’ll come back to him.
And she WILL come back to him.
Listening to her heart was a luxury she couldn’t afford.
Jenna Carver is settled back in London with her daughter. She’s still haunted by the close call at Farrell’s private estate — and by the unanswered questions surrounding the research her father hid before his death. But for now she’s focused on Lily and on maintaining the carefully constructed wall she’s erected between her and Farrell — the one and only thing that keeps her from falling under his spell all over again. But then Jenna and Lily are nearly killed, and it quickly becomes clear they have enemies in very high places.
Enemies who will stop at nothing to eliminate them.
After secreting Lily and Jenna away in one of his many luxury hideaways, Farrell turns his attention to the people responsible for the development of a bioweapon that could start a world war. Now he and Jenna are in a race against time from Tuscany to Amsterdam, desperate to unlock a puzzle that could mean the end of of everything — including their final chance at love.

Fleeing to Paris after the death of Erik Karlsen, Farrell and Jenna are determined to discover who is behind the creation of a dangerous bioweapon that could have catastrophic implications.
But the shadowy group isn’t their only enemy.
Now Farrell and Jenna are criminals, too, wanted by international intelligence agencies as persons of interest in Karlsen’s death. Holing up in Paris under assumed names, they begin to unravel the complicated web of anonymous financial backing that will lead them to the people who are responsible.
And the deeper they get, the more mysterious their enemies become.

The solution seems ideal, but the situation turns increasingly dire when a timeline is revealed for the new bioweapon. One that puts it in the path of millions of people.
Now Farrell and Jenna are in a race against the clock — to save mankind and each other.
The Christmases most shocking secret has been revealed. What does that mean for Jasper and my relationship? My lover once told me he's a man who has obligations.

Charlotte Duval had given everything. Just like her mother.
After the whirlwind romance that brought her together with the brooding and enigmatic Christophe Marchand, Charlotte is trying to regain her equilibrium by continuing their search for the stolen cross that is legend in the art world. Settled on the coast of Spain to continue the quest, she’s prepared for everything - except the man who haunts her dreams.
There was no fighting it - Charlotte Duval was in his blood.
Nothing had changed. Christophe Marchand’s business was still under attack, and his life offered no safe haven for a woman like Charlotte. But none of that changed the way his heart beat for her.
Indulging his curiosity about the final clue to the cross, he flies to Spain only to realize he’s been beaten to the chase — by the one woman he can’t forget. But when they join forces to reclaim the cross from an exclusive art sale, they realize the threat against Christophe is a threat against everything.
And everyone -- including Nico Vitale, Farrell Black, and Luca Cassano, brothers-in-arms in the organization once ruled by the Syndicate.
Now Christophe and Charlotte are in a race to recover the cross, outrun their enemies, and salvage the one love they can’t forget. There's only one question -- will they live long enough to do it?
With those three words, my boss gives me a gift: permission to kidnap and keep the woman I’ve wanted for years.
Ever since we were teenagers, I’ve denied my desire for Sofia. Despite her father’s involvement in running our cocaine empire, Caesar Hernández has carefully sheltered her from the brutal realities of our world. She’s always been far too innocent and pure for me to drag her out of her charmed life and into my depravities.
But Caesar chose to betray my ruthless boss, Adrián Rodríguez. He’ll have to prove his loyalty once again if he doesn’t want any harm to come to his precious daughter. I have her now, and he’s well aware of my sadistic proclivities.
I tried to save her from this, but I can’t fight my savage nature when Sofia is in my home and under my command. She’ll learn to obey me unquestioningly if she wants to earn any of her freedoms back. Sofia’s going to be my good girl, fulfilling all the dark fantasies I’ve suppressed for years.
I’ll do whatever it takes to keep my pretty hostage. If anyone tries to steal her from me, I’ll start a war to protect my most precious possession.
Sofia is mine, and I’ll never let her go.
Antonia thought I was a single dad in need of a babysitter.
She didn't know the bloody secrets that hid in the shadows of my home.
But when the war raging inside my club threatens to consume us both, she's forced to learn:
I'll fight like hell to protect what's mine.
My life changed in an instant when the baby landed on my doorstep.
A son I never knew existed.
The timing couldn't be worse.
My club is crumbling from the inside and out.
Traitors and snakes are lurking, doing their best to find my weaknesses and latch their fangs onto me.
But I was born for this.
Made for this.
Bred to be the president of an outlaw motorcycle club and to carry all the responsibilities that come with it.
The patch on my kutte means I'll never back down – not until my heart stops beating.
The nanny I hire to care for my child while I handle business at the clubhouse has wandered into a maelstrom of chaos.
She can't possibly know the danger she's in.
Not just from the enemies out for my blood.
But also for the lust that's building in my gut.
Demanding one thing:
That I pin her to my bed and make her my toy.
He seemed kind and desperate.
But as I came to learn, he was the farthest thing from it.
I thought Cal was doing me a favor when he hired me to be his live-in babysitter.
A place to stay for me and my young son?
A roof over our heads, food on the table, and a steady paycheck?
It seemed like a godsend.
But it turned out that Cal came straight from the devil.
Because he won't be content to stay sleeping in the bedroom next door.
He's a hunter at heart.
And he just set his sights on me.
But the most twisted part of it all is this…
I can't wait to find out what he'll do to me.
I'm begging to become the killer's pet.
