As the lone girl in the prolific McKay family, Keely McKay doesn’t need another man giving her orders. What she does need is a restoration specialist to help her open her physical therapy clinic—and that expert is none other than buttoned-down, uptight Jack Donohue—her brother’s best friend and a certified pain in her Wranglers.
Jack is this close to securing a career-defining project, until he learns his bachelor status puts him out of contention. When the notoriously hot-bodied-but-hot-tempered Keely begs him for help, he proposes a crazy idea; he’ll personally oversee her restoration—if she acts the part of his fiancée.
Their sizzling lust overtakes common sense and suddenly they’ve gone from butting heads to knocking boots, but outside the bedroom they’re as mismatched as ever. The McKays remind Jack of the humble upbringing he left behind, and country girl Keely feels she doesn’t measure up to Jack’s big-city expectations.
As the dust settles, Jack and Keely worry they’re not fooling anyone but themselves. Can they stop pretending long enough to see that they’ve stumbled on to the real deal?

After a tragedy sends Kimi running from her family, Cal gives Kimi a place to stay—and oh so many tantalizing reasons to stay—while she sorts out her plans. Now she'll have to decide whether the adventure she wants is in a new frontier or right there by Cal's side.

Rough Riders, Book 7
Soldier Cameron McKay has found his niche, and it ain’t ropin’ steers and wearin’ spurs. His deputy sheriff job—and the injuries that ended his military career—keep him right where he wants to be: off the ranch and away from his family’s pity. His darkest war memories are on lockdown, leaving him skeptical he’ll ever find a woman that wants a man who’s less than whole.
Orphaned in the Ukraine at age eleven, Domini Katzinski has had to control every aspect of her life since emigrating to the U.S. Watching others’ relationships crumble has convinced her to focus on the short-term—and find a take-charge man to whom she can relinquish total sexual control. Cam fits the bill: gorgeous, with a brooding vulnerability no one else seems to see.
Once Cam gets over his surprise that sweet, shy Domini wants to be dominated, he’s back to issuing orders. Their passion burns as hot as a rocket-propelled grenade—and if Domini has her way, it’ll be a one-shot deal.
Cam is ready to launch a full-out sensual assault to make her his, but when tragedy strikes, he’ll have to keep their past demons from blowing their future together all to hell…
Eden LaCroix loved Billy Buchanan ten years ago, but he ran out on her the night of prom. Now he’s back temporarily and Eden believes a hot fling will help her move on from their tangled past. She wasn’t expecting Billy’s naughty side—or the return of her sometime lover Jon White Feather—to tempt her to submit to her own dark desires.
Although college took Billy away from Eden, it’s a mistake he can rectify now that he’s in town to determine the fate of the community center Eden manages. Except reignited sparks keep getting in the way of his objectivity and the flames only leap higher when Eden’s rock star lover comes home, determined to show Eden—and Billy—the meaning of down and dirty.
Eden considers herself a one-woman man, yet in the arms of Billy and Jon she feels truly beautiful for the first time in her life. But does the sexual healing go far enough to prevent her from falling in love again?
