Callie Cassidy's food blog is just starting to take off, but not the way she'd hoped. Instead of her recipes and kitchen tips, the page that's attracting the most followers is Their Just Desserts. It's a series of stealth video reviews exposing the nasty side of L. A.'s fanciest restaurants. Unhappy always writing bad reviews, Callie sets off to review a place that can't possibly fail. En Flambe L. A., whose new pastry chef is the world-famous Roland De Mercier. Even better, she meets the restaurant's two owners, Jake and Alex, who find her Rubenesque curves and bright smile exactly to their liking. She's finally going to get a great review for her blog. Maybe even a date with one—or two!—of the hottest guys in L. A. What could possibly go wrong?
Jake and Alex are in a panic. The new pastry chef, Roland De Mercier, is a complete disaster, throwing dishes and screaming at the staff. Two line cooks have quit. The servers are afraid to move. And the sous-chef is crying. De Mercier is threatening one of the cooks with a blowtorch, and the head chef is threatening to kill De Mercier and throw his body in the Dumpster. Firing De Mercier seems like the perfect solution. Until the woman Jake and Alex are trying to impress orders De Mercier's signature dessert—chocolate key lime pie in puff pastry. They realize they have no clue how to create such a bizarre concoction. Their best attempt looks like a blob of gray goo. But things get worse when they find her filming a review of their failed dessert for all the world to see. And when someone tries to destroy Callie's business and ruin her name, Jake and Alex will have a hard time convincing her they're not guilty...

But when her charming boss invites her on a business trip to the Bahamas, she's eager to go. It might finally be time to stop denying her feelings. Grayson means to fly them to the Bahamas himself since he's a pilot, but a sudden storm forces an emergency landing on a small, seemingly deserted island. They aren't hurt in the crash, but the island turns out not to be deserted after all. It's the home of Carter Price, a man with smoldering good looks and a godly tan who appears out of nowhere to help them. After Carter tells them he's been trapped on the island for months with no way to leave, Emma and Grayson realize they may be stranded on this island for longer than they expected. Only that might not be all bad. The heat between the three of them quickly builds, and it isn't long until a simple kiss leads to three times the passion...and three times the complications...

But his foolish deception soon spirals out of control, especially after things heat up between the three of them. When Grayson discovers that Carter has a perfectly working boat and radio, Carter's lie is blown out of the sky and their fledgling threesome is in danger of going down in flames... Can Emma help two stubborn, strong men find forgiveness and accept their feelings for each other and for her? Or is their chance at happiness doomed to wilt in this tropical heat?

Follow a motley crew on an exciting journey through space—and one adventurous young explorer who discovers the meaning of family in the far reaches of the universe—in this light-hearted debut space opera from a rising sci-fi star.
Rosemary Harper doesn’t expect much when she joins the crew of the aging Wayfarer. While the patched-up ship has seen better days, it offers her a bed, a chance to explore the far-off corners of the galaxy, and most importantly, some distance from her past. An introspective young woman who learned early to keep to herself, she’s never met anyone remotely like the ship’s diverse crew, including Sissix, the exotic reptilian pilot, chatty engineers Kizzy and Jenks who keep the ship running, and Ashby, their noble captain.
Life aboard the Wayfarer is chaotic and crazy—exactly what Rosemary wants. It’s also about to get extremely dangerous when the crew is offered the job of a lifetime. Tunneling wormholes through space to a distant planet is definitely lucrative and will keep them comfortable for years. But risking her life wasn’t part of the plan. In the far reaches of deep space, the tiny Wayfarer crew will confront a host of unexpected mishaps and thrilling adventures that force them to depend on each other. To survive, Rosemary’s got to learn how to rely on this assortment of oddballs—an experience that teaches her about love and trust, and that having a family isn’t necessarily the worst thing in the universe.
Biologist Erika Myers is observing otters on a cold autumn morning when a freak accident sends her plunging into the river. Lucky for her, she's rescued by Mick Brannon, a huge, rough-looking biker who was cruising by on his hog. Mick might look like he belongs in a motorcycle gang, but he has a heart of gold and owns a bar in town. The only things that make him angry are seeing a woman treated wrong...and the extreme sports park that billionaire Drake Durrant wants to build and ruin Mick's hometown. Only Erika happens to be working with Drake to help bring the multi-million dollar project to life. When the billionaire races to Erika's side after the accident, he comes face to face with Mick and sparks fly between the three of them.
Mick is a fighter. Being a biker who swings both ways means he has plenty of scars to prove how tough he is. So when an outsider billionaire waltzes into his town looking to change it forever, he's going to do all he can to protect the town's way of life. And since he owns the slice of land Drake needs to start building his tourist-trap sports park, Mick can stop it for good. But Mick finds himself attracted to Erika, the sweet BBW who literally fell into his life, and it just so happens that the billionaire has his sights on her too. Not only is Drake filthy rich, he's too damn handsome, too bisexual, and the man keeps invading Mick's fantasies starring Erika. One way or another, Mick has to get Drake out of his system so he can win Erika's heart...only that might be easier said than done.
