Until she made him want more

Beck Corbett left something behind when he followed his team. Something he’s been unable to forget, someone still haunting his dreams.

Seneca should have forgotten Beck. In fact, she made it a priority to get past the special ops sniper, but her heart isn’t listening. She isn’t prepared for the moment he walks back into her life just as abruptly as he left it—or the lust she feels for his partner, Marshall Satuik. Beck’s still everything she can’t resist, and Marshall is a temptation she can’t ignore. But hopping into bed with them scares her. What if they disappear again?

Men like Beck and Marshall don’t live their lives in the open. They melt back into the shadows without a trace. But Seneca’s in trouble and Beck never takes any threat lightly. They’re not budging until the threat is neutralized. Which means Seneca has to face up to her desire for both men or risk losing it all…

Brought up in a strict Asian-American family where tradition is everything and virtue is golden, Mia Kerstin is a good girl who longs to be bad. But the "suitable" young men her family parades past her are about as exciting as watching mold grow. Until fate steps in and thrusts her into Trace's Kocourek's solid arms.

Helping out his Special Forces buddies by protecting Mia from a relentless enemy ends up being more about keeping his hands off, than his eyes wide open. And that's the problem—he can't stop touching the sensual virgin, and she's putting his self-control to the ultimate test. When Mia decides she wants to take a lover, Trace is the only man for the job—he'll kill anyone else who touches her.

As the danger escalates and the threat becomes a matter of life and death, keeping Mia safe ceases being a favor to a buddy and becomes a personal imperative for the jaded and tough ex-soldier. Mia is his. No ifs or buts. He's playing for keeps.

Note: Set slightly concurrent to Challenge Protocol, this story shares the same "world" and linked characters, but can be read as a stand-alone.

Now nothing's simple, and she's losing control. Two hot, hard men who live together, work together and love together, and the woman they want is her. Getting them out of her head, her bed, or her life isn't working. Choosing between them isn't an option.

A vengeful enemy has forced Dack and Logan to live a life spent watching each other's backs, 24/7. That includes in the bedroom. Nowhere is safe. Love affairs are brief. But Cambria is a lady neither of them can resist. With her sassy attitude and passionate nature, she touches some part of them they'd thought dead.

Stormy passion and tender touches tempt the two battle-scarred warriors with a taste of the forbidden, but how to keep the woman they both want safe, and in their bed?

Fay knew the large Hunter wanted her. It was a fact she tried to ignore even as she felt Janus' eyes lingering on her, following her. But the rumors told her the story of a Hunter who enjoyed domination. Placing her faith in gossip might not be wise but it was far safer than letting her body become his plaything. She refused to submit to any man, and Janus would demand her submission — and more.

Janus wasn't willing to accept Fay's rejection. Attraction wasn't fair, but in his case it appeared in the form of a female who taunted his every effort to entice her, leaving only one way to gain what he craved, and that was to conquer her.

It was an engagement Janus was looking forward to with relish.

Reader Advisory: Contains one scene of partner swapping.

Note: This story is set in the same world as Talon's Trophy and Hawk's Prey, however Janus' Conquest can be read alone.
