For as long as Paige can remember she has wanted to be a librarian - unfortunately she’s pretty sure she’s going to end up a blue-haired spinster one with a house full of cats. All of that changes in an instant when Rhys comes within a breath of kissing her in the Special Collections department. The sexy ex-Army captain has been wounded in body and soul, but Paige believes she can heal him if he'll only give her a chance. Getting him to give her that chance is the tricky part, though, since Rhys is convinced he's all wrong for her and is doing his best to keep her at arm's length. And what if he's right? Is she really ready for this? How can you want someone so much that you ache from it, but be so afraid of it at the same time? But she decided the first day that she met him and felt that first stab of wanting that she would not allow fear to govern her where he was concerned. This is what she wants.

He was hers—even if he didn’t quite know it, yet.

What would have happened if he had gone through with that kiss? For all her youth and innocence, Paige is proving irresistible. There has never been a woman he wanted this badly, who consumes his every waking moment this way. But he's all wrong for her - too old, too wrecked, too jaded. How can it be right to saddle a girl like Paige, who has hardly experienced life at all and still has everything ahead of her, with a man who is already broken? Offering her any encouragement is a terrible idea, and every time they're near each other is like throwing lit matches towards a puddle of gasoline. He has absolutely no business getting involved with her, no matter how badly he wants to be her first at all those things he figures she hasn't come anywhere close to doing yet. And deep down he knows that what he really wants is to be her only - the only man ever to have her, to touch her.

Paige had already claimed him, even if he wouldn’t admit it to himself.

How had her life gotten so complicated?

As if grad school wasn’t hard enough, Celeste had caught her boyfriend cheating on her and kicked him out of their apartment. Now she’s on the hook for all the bills, and she needs a job that will pay her more than a teaching assistant’s meager salary. In desperation she finds herself at a party on the yacht of Andrew Winter, a playboy oil billionaire, hoping to land a job as his personal assistant. But the gorgeous stranger she ends up talking to isn’t Andrew Winter.

In the dim light she couldn’t make out the color of his eyes, but it really didn’t matter. They were riveted on her, and that was all she cared about at the moment.

What she can see is that he’s smoking hot, oozing testosterone, and interested in her. After the hit her ego has taken with her ex, the attention is nice. It isn’t going to get him anywhere, but that doesn’t mean she can’t have fun with it. Who wouldn’t take advantage of a little moonlight on a yacht with good company? But no one had bothered to tell Stephen he couldn’t have a taste, and now his soft lips are setting her on fire.

Why couldn’t she enjoy it for just a little while? It wouldn’t hurt anything, would it?

This edition contains all eight installments of The Winter Billionaires series and is over 127,000 words (over 540 pages) long.

Working at the music store was Lisa’s dream job. Unfortunately she seems to attract customers determined to turn it into a living hell. First of all there’s Jacob. The tattoo artist from the shop next door hasn’t stopped hitting on her in weeks, and doesn’t seem to understand the word ‘no.’ Then there’s the new guy, the arrogant jerk who shows her up in front of everyone in the store. After dealing with Jacob’s lewd advances, the last thing she needs is to be kicked in the ego. Still, the guy is seriously cute. If you like the type. Which she doesn’t. At all. But when she runs into him again at her favorite club he looks better than ever. Turns out he has a nice butt, too. It’s almost a shame that he’s not her type.

But the butterflies which exploded in her stomach didn’t seem to care.

The petite Goth girl isn’t Duncan's type at all, but he can’t get her electric blue eyes out of his head. Aside from being wickedly sexy, her quick wit and razor sharp tongue set him off like no other woman he’s ever met. She’s smart and she’s got attitude and she needs someone who is her match. Fortunately for her he knows someone who just happens to fit the job description. Now all he has to do is convince her to give him a chance, even if it’s against her better judgment. Of course that’s just the beginning of his problems. Duncan has a secret, and if Lisa finds out it could spoil everything. His only hope is to keep her in the dark until she's in deep enough to accept him for who he really is.

He has to tell her the truth, but it gets harder with each passing day to take the chance of losing her.
