A sizzling standalone romance about a second chance with the billionaire who got away…

 

January: I need a billionaire. Fast.

 

When I stumble onto a tech giant’s plot to spy on everyone’s phones, I know my security company is only one who can stop them. But my little start up needs money. Lots of it.

 

Enter Mark Taylor, the hottest venture capitalist in Silicon Valley. And the only billionaire I know on a personal level. And the guy I reluctantly turned down in college.

 

I’m in his office and ready to beg… but he’s not the forgive and forget type.

 

Mark: I never hear the word no. Not since I remade myself from a skinny nerd into the deal making playboy of Bastard Capital. 

 

January was the last woman to tell me no—and the one woman I can’t forget. She’s as enticing as ever, so I offer her a deal: I say yes to her in the boardroom and she says yes to me in the bedroom. A quick, scorching affair is exactly what I need to get her out of my system.

 

But when a shadowy conspiracy threatens her company—and the privacy of everybody—all my protective instincts flare to life. And this quick affair is suddenly much deeper than we’d ever expected…

 

Enter the world of Bastard Capital: Unrivaled men. Unimaginable wealth. Unlimited power.

A passionate standalone romance about a billionaire husband and the estranged wife he never stopped loving…


 Callie: I only ever wanted to be the perfect wife. To prove to myself and a short-term world that Logan and I had a forever love.

I was wrong. The harder I tried to be flawless, the farther apart we grew, until I never saw my husband. At least not at home—but definitely in the pages of gossip rags with beautiful women in his orbit, like in his playboy bachelor days.

 

So I ran before my heart could break completely. But Logan’s found me… and he refuses to let me disappear again.


Logan: I only ever wanted to be the perfect husband. To prove I could succeed where my dad hadn’t and provide my wife with everything she could ever want.


I failed. The harder I worked, the more I made, the more I gave to her, the farther away Callie drifted. Until one day she was gone and my entire world went black.


But I never stopped searching for her. When I find her, we reignite the passion between us—and uncover a whisper campaign to destroy our marriage. Finding who’s responsible and making them pay will be the easy part. Convincing Callie to give our marriage a second chance… that will be hardest fight of my life.

 An enticing standalone romance about a bad boy billionaire with a quicksilver mind and a secret heart of gold…


Ramona (aka Doc): I’ve got troubles: a wrongly convicted brother, an empty bank account, and a hopeless crusade I can’t abandon. Finn, the bad boy of Bastard Capital, is smoking hot, amazingly funny, and dead brilliant—and trouble with a capital T. Exactly what I don’t need. Except I can’t stop thinking about his massive… brain and his nimble… wit.

 

But Mr. Trouble is also the world’s greatest hacker and the only person who can access the evidence of my brother’s innocence. I’ll do anything for that, including tangling with a man who might snare my heart forever.

 

Finn: Doc’s got a smart mouth, a stunning body, and a fantastically sharp mind. She’d be the perfect woman, except for the fact that we have explosive chemistry and she refuses to act on it.

 

When I unearth proof that her brother was set up, it’s the perfect excuse to get closer. I’m going to prove my brand of bad is oh so good for her.

 

After a few (slightly illegal) break ins and some (super illegal) data theft, it becomes clear we’re up against an old enemy. And I’m terrified I’m not strong enough to fight him and hold onto Doc at the same time…

 A sultry standalone romance about a billionaire prince and the fake engagement that feels all too real…

 

Grace: When I landed a job at a big-name tech company, it was like winning a golden ticket. At least until I uncovered a massive conspiracy and my golden ticket became a golden cage.

 

Now I’m jobless and about to be deported. Imagine my surprise when Paul, the handsome Prince Charming of Bastard Capital, comes riding to my rescue. But then his mom, the Ice Queen, sweeps in and we’re suddenly pretending to be engaged. And my ex-employer acts like a big, bad troll and Paul saves me again. 

 

Fairy tales aren’t real, and I’m not princess, but Paul’s got me believing in the impossible…

 

Paul: I’m a Bastard—the well bred, old money one. So when my mother shows up with an engagement ring and her unlucky choice of bride in tow, I don’t tell her to get lost. Instead, I spin a white lie about the wonderful woman I’m already engaged to.

 

Grace is only too happy to take the deal—she fakes being in love and I set her up like royalty back home. She’s the perfect pretend fiancée: gracious, canny, and leaving very soon.

 

But Grace turns out to be more than just an easy solution, with her sarcastic one liners, love of pro wrestling, and scorching hot kisses. And now I’m determined to make my fake fiancée my very real lover…
