Lijah Smith was known as The Renegade during his years in the army, and even though he no longer serves that hasn’t changed; he’s still a renegade, believes rules were made for other people, not him. He’s also hard, ruthless, with a body of tempered steel, and when beautiful Callie Morgan tells him the reason she needs his help he becomes the deadly assassin that he was trained to be.

But Lijah has a secret, one that only a handful of people know, and Callie isn’t one of them.

Callie came to Grayson Security looking for the men who served under her father, Major Peter Morgan, knowing that if anyone can help her find him, they can. She expected to speak with the owner of Grayson Security, instead she meets Lijah Smith, a man as deadly as he is overpoweringly attractive.

But there’s something Callie isn’t telling Lijah, something that could get them both killed.

The sexual attraction between the two of them is raw and primal, and impossible for either of them to ignore. But can that attraction overcome the secrets they’re both hiding, and will they find Callie’s father before it’s too late?

Gregori Markovic recently became the head of the Russian family that rules London’s criminal underworld. Aged in his mid-thirties some considered him too young for the position. Not any more, he has already been tried and tested, and more than proved himself worthy.

Gaia Miller is looking for the man responsible for the death of her sister, and she doesn’t mind putting herself in danger if it means finding that man. Going to work at Utopia, one of the exclusive nightclubs and casinos owned by Gregori Markovic, gives her the perfect opportunity to find him and ensure that he pays for his crime.

Even if that man should turn out to be Gregori Markovic himself.

Cold and remote, Gregori finds the ice he keeps about his emotions begins to melt from his very first momentous meeting with Gaia Miller, as he is drawn to her warmth and passion in a way he never has been with any other woman.

Suspicious of Gregori Markovic’s involvement in her sister’s death, Gaia hadn’t expected him to be quite as devastatingly handsome or so powerfully imposing. Or to find herself irresistibly drawn to the sharp edge of danger that surrounds him.

As different as night and day, and with so many secrets standing between them, the two nevertheless can’t seem to stay away from each other, or to resist every opportunity to explore the depths of that attraction. Wherever that passion might take them.

But Gregori has already made enemies, one powerful enemy in particular. A man who will stop at nothing to make Gregori suffer in the same way he’s suffered, by taking someone from him that he cares about. He sees Gregori’s deepening involvement with Gaia Miller as the perfect way to exact that revenge.

Dair Grayson runs a worldwide security company, and with his military background he’s the perfect choice when Gregori Markovic, a boss of London’s criminal underworld, needs someone to go and find, and if necessary rescue his sister. Straightforward enough, it’s what Dair does, after all. Only trouble is, Dair hasn’t seen Kat for 15 years, and his affectionate memories of her as a coltish fifteen-year-old in no way prepare him for the beautiful woman Kat has become.

Kat has given up hope of being rescued from the hell in which she’s been incarcerated for weeks. The arrival of Dair Grayson changes all that. But Dair is no longer that devil-may-care teenager she remembers from so long ago, but has become a hardened and scarred warrior. A warrior who is determined to rescue her, from herself, if necessary.

On the run from Kat’s ex-husband, the two of them are thrown together constantly, and Dair finds it harder and harder to resist this hot and sexy grown-up Kat. Except he doesn’t do forever, and he learned his lesson long ago when it came to dark-eyed beauties like Katya Markovic, and has the scars to prove it.

Kat doesn’t want forever either, she’s only interested in the here and now. And what she wants now is Dair, and for the two of them to satisfy the hot and explosive sexual tension between them until it’s time for her to start running again.

The only problem is, Kat’s ex-husband is now looking for both of them...

Lucien Wynter made a decision 15 years ago to distance himself from his violent past. He has spent those intervening years quietly and ruthlessly building his own business empire and amassing his own private fortune, while at the same time remaining aloof from all emotional entanglements. If he physically wants a woman, then he takes one. Beautiful sensuous women, who never mean anything more to him than that fleeting physical release.

Until Nicky McKenzie...

Beautiful. Fiery. Elusive Nicky McKenzie.

Lucien had never calculated on meeting, let alone desiring, a woman like Nicky McKenzie. The woman he now wants in his bed, no holds barred. The woman he can’t seem to forget. But also, he discovers too late, the one woman capable of bringing his violent past crashing down about his ears...

Nicky McKenzie just wants to live her life in quiet obscurity. Unnoticed. Invisible. And for five years she had succeeded in doing exactly that.

Until Lucien Wynter...

Cold. Compelling. Ruthless Lucien Wynter.

Was it chance the two of them had met, or just the cruelty of fate? Whichever it was, the desire between Lucien and Nicky is instant. Explosive. Unforgettable. A desire that becomes as necessary to both of them as breathing, as they indulge and lose themselves in each and every one of their desires for each other.

But both of them are hiding secrets. Secrets that, once told, could destroy them both.
