Parker Cornwall respects Sophie's position. Mostly. He's cultivated his playboy reputation to keep women at a distance. His family's legacy of pain isn't something he wants to continue. But Sophie's passion draws him to her, and when they start working together, love imposes its own agenda on them both.
Sophie discovers that labels and reputations mean far less than the man underneath, but Parker is terrified of hurting Sophie, and of being hurt in return. Only when tragedy strikes can he finally understand that having and losing is better than never having at all.

Three times, they have failed.
Alexa Ranger doesn’t remember the lord’s son who was her soulmate three lifetimes ago, nor does she recall their previous attempts to break the curse—each one ending in her death. But she does remember Cyrgyn, the golden dragon who has haunted her dreams since childhood and has appeared to her now to begin their final attempt.
A highly trained spy, Alexa has been preparing for this mission her entire life. But her skills are no match for the desperate mage who has lost none of his command of magic—and none of his twisted, possessive need for her. She is determined to save the dragon she has come to love, but there is more than the curse standing in their way…
Three years ago, Amber Benedict fell in love with Kale Riker and pledged to wait for him to return from the military. Even though she rarely hears from him, she’s steadfast in her belief: he’s coming home to her, and soon. Then the government tells Kale’s family that he’s missing in action, and they have given him up for dead.
Kale Riker has been away from civilization and Amber for three long years. He’s been promised he can retire his commission when he completes his current mission, but now he’s seriously wounded and facing a long recovery. Worse still, security risks force a communications blackout, leaving him no way to let Amber know he's alive.
Can Amber hold out against an entire town pushing her to give up on love while Kale fights to get back home to her before Christmas?
