Lily pins her hopes on the rumor that her best friend and fellow programmer Finley used to tie up his old girlfriend, but after a night with him falls apart, all she wants is a Dom who won't ask for her heart—or her real name. Then a chance meeting gets her the business card of a high-class escort named the Stranger who specializes in domination. His commanding presence and guaranteed discretion seem like the perfect solution.
But Lily isn't the only one who wears a mask or the only one trapped between fantasy and reality, past and present, pleasure and pain. When the masks come off, Lily will have no choice but to face the horrifying truth.

Mai has found purpose serving as a house elder in the newly reformed imperial court, and she's determined to help the empress fulfill her destiny to lead an army into the plane of Oblivion and kill the Damned One. But an old trauma prevents Mai from realizing her full potential, and she's not sure she can open up her heart to the man who's eager to help her see that she's already a true leader—one far more passionate than she believes.
Rosuke, newly freed from a centuries-long curse, wants nothing more than to seize the kind of honorable life he'd previously discarded—one defined by sacrifice and love—even though he may not deserve it. And he's more than willing to do everything he can to earn a place in Mai's heart. However, their difficult pasts aren't the only obstacles to a future together—not when they're committed to fighting alongside the empress, even if it means their lives.

Samantha never thought being in the antiques business would be so dangerous, nor that a locket she swiped for herself would send her to 1783 London.

Her situation goes from bad to worse when desperation lands her in a brothel, but Samantha's first client may have the answers she needs—if she submits to his desires.

His father is dying, and his fugitive brother has bankrupted their family's shipping business. Samantha turns out to be just what Ryder needs—both in bed and out of it—but the more passion they share, the more embroiled she becomes in his criminal dealings, including the dark secret between Ryder and the obsessed revenue officer who wants to see him hang.

1351, Scotland. Emma wakes alone and confused on a wooded hillside. Her antique locket now looks new, and it holds cryptic clues about the unfamiliar place—and time—where she finds herself.

But he cannot deny how Emma pulls at him, nor suppress his mounting obsession with unlocking all her secrets. Is she an ordinary woman in extraordinary circumstances, or is she a real fairy as everyone else believes? And will he be able to convince her to stay in his life?
