Stocks and bonds aren’t the only commodities being traded on Wall Street. Money, power, prestige, sex--they’re all available to the highest bidder in Deal Breaker by Tara Leigh.

Nixie Rowland is having a bad day. Rushing home to drown her sorrows in ice cream and reality television, she decides to take a shortcut to the subway where things take a turn for the worst. But Nixie’s bad luck doesn’t end there—the white knight who comes to her rescue is none other than the Dark Knight of Wall Street, a cocky Manhattan mogul whose ego barely fits inside his penthouse. To her horror, Nixie discovers the sizzling attraction between them is off the charts, and rising fast. Spending the night in his bed does nothing to lower the heat... And everything to set her heart on fire.

Nash Knight doesn’t have room in his life, or his heart, for anything beyond one-night stands or casual flings. And he certainly doesn’t make a habit of rescuing damsels in distress. Except that this particular damsel slips beneath his armor, the vulnerability she covers with a false show of bravado hitting him somewhere deep. Nixie is everything he never wanted... And exactly what he needs.

With Nixie on the run from a controlling ex, and Nash trying to salvage a business deal at risk because his conquests in the bedroom are overshadowing his wins in the boardroom, there’s one simple solution for them both: a marriage in name only. But when lust becomes love, will their untamed emotions be a deal breaker?

Here together for the first time in a convenient ebook bundle, all four books in New York Times bestselling author Lisa Kleypas' beloved series featuring the Travis family:

Sugar Daddy

Liberty Jones has dreams and determination that will take her far away from Welcome, Texas. Hardy Cates' ambitions are bigger than Welcome, and Liberty Jones is a complication he doesn't need. But something magical and potent draws them to each other, in a dangerous attraction that is stronger than both of them. Hardy leaves town to pursue his plans and soon Liberty finds herself under the spell of a billionaire tycoon. But the relationship goes deeper than people think, and Liberty begins to discover secrets about her own family's past. Two men. One woman. A choice that can make her or break her. A woman you'll root for every step of the way. A love story you'll never forget.

Blue-Eyed Devil

Hardy Cates is a self-made millionaire who comes from the wrong side of the tracks. He's made enemies in the rough-and-tumble ride to the top of Houston's oil industry. He's got hot blood in his veins. And vengeance on his mind. Haven Travis refuses to set out on the path her wealthy family has chosen for her. But when Haven marries a man her family disapproves of, her life is set on a new and dangerous course. Two years later, Haven comes home, determined to guard her heart. And Hardy Cates, a family enemy, is the last person she needs darkening her door or setting her soul on fire.

Smooth Talking Stranger

Jack Travis leads the uncomplicated life of a millionaire Texas playboy. But no one has ever truly touched his heart or soul. Until one day, a woman appears on his doorstep with fury on her face and a baby in her arms. It seems Jack is the father and this woman is the baby's aunt. The real mother has abandoned the child to her more responsible sister. And now, Jack is being called upon to take responsibility for the first time in his life.

Brown-Eyed Girl

Wedding planner Avery Crosslin may be a rising star in Houston society, but she doesn’t believe in true love—at least not for herself. When she meets wealthy bachelor Joe Travis and mistakes him for a wedding photographer, she has no intention of letting him sweep her off her feet. But Joe is a man who goes after what he wants. When Joe makes it clear that he’s not going to give up easily, Avery must confront the insecurities and beliefs that stem from a past she would do anything to forget.

Women.

They’ve always been my weakness. 


There’s a certain line a man shouldn’t cross to get the woman he’s always wanted—especially when that woman belongs to his best friend.


I crossed that line. And now I’ve lost everything that matters.


They say a man has to hit bottom before he rises to the top. I’ve hit bottom—but like a balloon filled with helium I’m working hard as hell to pick myself back up.


Then I meet Carter. She’s irresistible and way too good for me. I’m not ready for her—at least not yet. Plus she’s my buddy’s favorite cousin. I’ve made the mistake of crossing him once, and I sure as hell don’t want to cross him twice. So I’m keeping my distance. But as each day goes by, I’m finding it harder to resist her.

She's the boss. He's off limits. But not everything in life can be business as usual...


Hannah Frederickson manages a local landmark in the Country Time Bar and Grill.  She knows it’s up to her to keep the business that’s been in her family for generations going strong.   But when her uncle takes off with all her money—and quite possibly the Country Time’s future—Hannah must scramble to keep the doors open.  It seems like a nearly impossible task.  Which means it's definitely not a good time for Hannah to be noticing hot bartender, Deacon Black.


Deacon wants nothing more than to reestablish himself in his hometown… and in the eyes of his long-time unrequited love, Hannah. The fact that she’s his boss makes things awkward when the sparks begin to fly, but Deacon is sure they can work everything out—both in the business crisis and in their budding romance.


Things are looking up until Deacon decides to take matters into his own hands. His brash action threatens Hannah’s last hope of keeping her restaurant alive, and their final opportunity for a second chance at love.


Welcome to Hardy Falls, Pennsylvania, nestled in the heart of the Pocono Mountains, where love happens no matter how hard you try to avoid it. There must be something in the water.
