“A perfectly dark thrill ride of breathtaking action and scorching hot romance” —Skye Warren, New York Times bestselling author
“Yulia,” he whispers, staring down at me, and I know he feels it too, this pull, this visceral connection between us. He may have all the power, but in this moment, he’s as vulnerable as I am, caught in the grip of the same madness.
Forced to join a secret intelligence agency at a young age, Russian interpreter/spy Yulia Tzakova is no stranger to dangerous men. But she’s never known one as ruthless and compelling as Lucas Kent. The hard-edged mercenary frightens her, yet she’s drawn to him—to a man she has no choice but to betray.
Second-in-command to a powerful arms dealer, Lucas Kent has never met a woman he’s wanted as much as Yulia. Obsessed with the beautiful blonde, he’ll stop at nothing to capture her and make her pay for her betrayal.
From the icy streets of Moscow to the steamy jungles of Colombia, their dark, all-consuming passion will either crush them or set them free.
“Blazing hot, captivating, and fast-paced” —Josie Litton, New York Times bestselling author

From the moment his eyes meet hers across the crime-scene tape, ex-con turned bodyguard Quasar Patterson knows he has to see the mysterious Dr. Randi Fuller again. She's a renowned psychic investigator who can foresee danger for others, but not for herself. That makes Quasar doubly determined to watch over her—the closer, the better—as she's drawn into a dangerous gang rivalry.
Both her psychic gift and their blinding chemistry tell Randi that she and Quasar are fated to be entwined. Even as they surrender to the heat between them, there's no guarantee of a happily-ever-after now that an enemy has her in his sights. And claiming a future will take more than Quasar's strength and skill. If he can't risk the heart he's always held in check, they'll both lose for good…
Her asexual best friend and landlord wants kids…with her, preferably. Her favorite client is getting married and moving on. She might go on a date for the first time in...well, a long time. And if that wasn’t enough, her boss has decided she’s management material.
Suddenly Penny needs to decide what she truly wants in her life. Kids? Romance outside of the workplace? A—heaven help her—management position?
It’s enough to make a girl want to flip a coin.
"I read this book 3 times and dragged my feet writing this review because I really just wanted to read it again and again! It’s just that good! Honestly if you enjoy female characters who are not ashamed by their sexuality, or sexual activity this is your book. If you love romances given to a strong female role that comes for place of love and not dependence, this is your book. If you just want to read this secretly under the sheets, I promise not to tell but trust me this is your book!" - Lia's Bookish Obsession
"It's like, a story about personal growth, and also sex scenes. Good stuff." - Goodreads Reviewer
