A fan favorite from New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann.



When Pete Taylor first offers his services as a bodyguard, Annie Morrow wants nothing
to do with him. She's sure that the death threats against her aren't serious. After all,
while the artifact she's working on is valuable, it's certainly not worth killing for.



But
after someone does make an attempt on her life, Annie is glad to have Pete around. She
owes him her life, and suddenly, she's beginning to believe in heroes again. And Pete is
now the only person she can allow herself to trust.

New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Cynthia Eden offers readers a new "Dark Obsession" romantic suspense tale...NEED ME. 

Innocent…or guilty? 

The cops think that Julianna Smith is a murderer. No one will listen when Julianna claims she’s innocent, and as the suspicions mount against her, only Julianna knows the truth…a killer is hunting her. Somewhere in the darkness, a stalker is closing in and preparing to deliver a final justice that she can’t escape. 

He’s her only option. 

Devlin Shade isn’t a man who trusts easily, and when Julianna Smith walks into VJS Protection, he’s well aware of her reputation—the sexy blond could be a cold-blooded murderer. Only when he looks at her, cold is the last thing that Devlin feels. There’s an instant attraction between them—hot, fierce, primal. And he agrees to take her case. He’ll be her bodyguard. He’ll keep her safe from the enemy hunting her, and he’ll also find out the truth about the mysterious Julianna. If she is a killer, he’ll turn her over to the cops himself. 

She can’t let him get too close… 

Julianna knows that she is walking a dangerous line with Devlin. She never expected to want him so much, and as they grow closer, she realizes that he’s working to uncover her secrets. But the secrets that she carries are worth killing for…and she can’t let anyone discover the truth, not even Devlin. 

Killer or victim… 

Soon the thin line between right and wrong is blurred. For Devlin, the case becomes personal, and all that matters is Julianna—keeping her safe and stopping the stalker who is on her trail. As he slides deeper into Julianna’s dangerous world, Devlin’s own darkness rises up. He’s played the good guy for so long, but now his mask is falling away. He isn’t controlled, he isn’t safe, and when Julianna is threatened, he will cross any line to keep her safe. 

NEED ME. 

Some needs can push you to the edge of sanity… 

Author's Note: NEED ME is a complete, stand-alone story. All of the books in the Dark Obsession series are stand-alone titles.

Annotated reissue originally published 1995

A workaholic thirty-something couple and a baby…

Josie Cooper’s got the perfect-for-her life. This former small-town-girl has worked long and hard to grow her computer start-up into a company to be reckoned with. She’s also found her soul-mate in brilliant, quirky, and extremely sexy architect Cooper McBride. And they’re happily—if busily—living out their HEA in Manhattan, the City that Never Sleeps.

The ongoing journey of a happy marriage is one that needs constant work and compromise, but Josie and Cooper are experts at thinking creatively to make their lives and relationship vibrant and thriving.

But when Josie’s brother and his wife are killed in a car accident in the mountains of Tennessee, their two small children—four year old Lucy and nine month old Ben—have nowhere to go, unless Josie and Cooper step up. “I saw a baby once,” Josie tells Coop, “but that’s the extent of my experience…” 

Outside-of-the-box thinking is this power-couple’s forte, but adding two understandably needy kids to the chaos of their lives is a daunting challenge—one that will test them in unexpected ways…

With footnoted commentary about everything from pre-smartphone life in 1994/1995 (when Embraced by Love was written, published, and is still set) to thoughts on writing romance and how much Romancelandia—and her own writing—has changed in the past twenty-something years, Suzanne Brockmann presents a special annotated edition of one of her very earliest books.

Set in 1995, Embraced by Love is a full length novel of 64K words (76K with annotations) or 240 pages. It was originally published in 1995.

I have debts to pay and secrets to keep. When someone threatens my life, I crash into him: Jackson Ludlow

The recluse billionaire of New York

Once, he had everything a man could want. Then, he lost the only thing that he ever loved.


So, he spent four years holed up in his mansion doing the only thing he knew how to do: make money. 


We are all wrong for each other. He’s cold, uninterested and demanding. 

I’m impatient and inexperienced. 


The only thing we have in common is that we both have secrets. 

And the closer we get, the more they threaten to destroy us.
