Elizabeth Lennox has wanted to be a romance novelist since the eighth grade. She has published forty romances (and counting) using her travels throughout the United States, Europe and the Caribbean as backdrops for her stories. She lives in Virginia just outside of Washington, D.C. and many of her novels are set in this area.
It was the only way her brother could get on with his life. If Gaia could steer her brother’s need for revenge towards the Steele brothers, make the consequences less horrible, then she was going to do it. She’d do anything to help her brother move on with his life.
Unfortunately, She hadn’t counted on Logan Steele being the most devastatingly handsome man she’d ever seen in her life. Nor had she counted on his brilliance. Or his offer to help make a dream of hers into a reality.
So much for revenge!
Logan watched the beautiful blonde woman enter his office and knew with every ounce of his being that she would be his. Figuring out what she was hiding – and protecting her from that issue, was his next challenge. Something was wrong – seriously wrong and he needed Gaia to trust him. Gaining that trust would be harder than he’d ever thought possible. But he’d find out what was pulling her back from him and he would overcome all the obstacles in their way.
Standing in the doorway to his office, Zeke Steele is floored by the woman tsking at the chaos. Five minutes before, his mind had been focused on the chaos. Now his mind couldn’t get past her dark curls, her luscious figure. In that moment, Zeke realized that his bachelor days were over.
And yet, he laughed when he overheard the vivacious Marcy telling one of his ex-lovers that he was gay.
Zeke was going to have to prove the lovely and mischievous Marcy that she was very wrong.
Marcy had been working for the amazingly handsome and overly buff Teague Steele for a long time, but thought of him as her big brother. Not so when she faced off with Teague’s older brother! Oh no, no brotherly affection for this man! Zeke Steele made her burn! He caused images to flash through her mind – completely inappropriate images!
Unfortunately, Marcy was on a mission to finish law school and the incredibly handsome and gorgeously lust-worthy Zeke Steele would have to wait.
That was until…she got pregnant!
Love at first sight…a whirlwind romance…a Las Vegas wedding followed by days and nights spent in bed.
Gabriella couldn’t believe what she’d done and ran from the powerful feelings that Teague Steele generated in her. She couldn’t…wouldn’t…stay with a man like Teague! She’d been poor all her life and she wanted more for her children than the humiliation of poverty.
A year later…
Gabriella comes back to Seattle and she just needs a signature. One simple signature that would finalize the crazy weekend she’d spent with Teague. He might be the man of her dreams, but he could also be her nightmare. Unfortunately, the lust and laughter were still there. Gabriella was determined to ignore all of it. She was going to marry a wealthy man and keep her children from having to deal with the same humiliation she’d endured.
A whole year…Teague had been trying to get over her for a year! But the first time she shows up at the construction sight, he knows that his efforts had failed. He still wanted Gabby. And he was determined to show her that they could work.
Her legal machinations were causing his legal team to look like they were chasing their tails and her arguments caused delays in his schedule. Bryce Steele wanted these issues out of the way immediately. The best way to forge ahead was a face to face meeting. But Bryce hadn’t realized that the brilliant legal mind was attached to a woman with a luscious figure and fiery red hair…being held up by four, no five pencils! He was floored…and then entranced.
Quinn hated the man! Bryce Steele represented everything that was wrong with the world – too wealthy, too arrogant and unconcerned with people who were just trying to make a living. She wasn’t going to let him get away with tearing down a whole neighborhood just so he could put up one of his massive monstrosities. Someone had to stand up to the man – she was just the woman for the job!
Until he showed up in her office and Quinn realized that he was over a foot taller than her and, even worse, made her heart race.
No, she couldn’t allow that to get in the way of her job! Quinn was determined to ignore the growing attraction between them and focus only on stopping him, on protecting her clients.
So who was going to stop her from falling for the charming rogue?
Mike knew things. Halley had no idea how, but as sheriff, he just seemed to know everything! So keeping him at a distance was her only solution. If he ever found out about her secret…well, that just couldn’t happen. It was her dream and she wasn’t going to let him make fun of her dream.
But…oh my, when he touched her…or kissed her!
Then again, it was hard to keep the man at a distance when someone was breaking into her house…to clean? That just didn’t make sense!
Mike was furious! Halley kept disappearing for hours at a time. He knew she was hiding something, but he couldn’t figure it out. He loved solving mysteries, but not when it came to his woman. And yes, Halley was his woman even if she hadn’t accepted that reality in her mind.
Getting her to accept that truth, and finding out what she was hiding, was his biggest challenge.
A doctor that ate potato chips? No way. Doctors were supposed to know better!
Makenna didn’t care how gorgeous or sexy the amazing Dr. Vince DeBron might be, she wasn determined to avoid the handsome man's charm. She’d found her last boyfriend, also a doctor, in a supply closet with another doctor. Burned once, she wasn't going to be fooled again.
Vince couldn’t believe how adorable the lovely new office manager was. She was smart, sexy, dedicated…and avoiding him like the plague! Until he touched her and then the sparks flamed into an inferno.
Vince didn’t understand why Makenna kept pulling back, but he would. He’d overcome all of the obstacles she put in their path to happiness.
It was time to take a wife. Sheik Droon Al-Hassair had escaped assassination attempts, regained control of his country and recovered the economy. His country was thriving now. It was time to take the next step and ensure his country’s prosperity by creating an heir.
His lovely assistant Lina was just the woman for the job. But every time he got her to open up, she would shy away. She was such a passionate woman when he took her into his arms, but during the daylight, she acted as if she’d done something wrong.
Not to mention, one issue after another kept him from discussing his intentions with the lovely Lina, frustrating him and he could see the confusion in her own beautiful eyes.
It was time to take control. And the best place to do that was his home in Montana. Lina didn’t fully comprehend his intentions, but she would!
He wouldn’t leave her alone! Good grief, the enormous Hunter James was just relentless! Fleur DeBron had enjoyed one dinner with the man two years ago and…okay, so that night had been…amazing. Kissing Hunter James had been…magical.
But he hadn’t called Fleur after that night. He’d said he would. But he hadn’t. A man only got one chance with her, and Hunter had blown it.
Why didn’t he accept that?
Maybe it was because, every time he pulled her into his arms, Fleur melted like ice cream on a hot, summer afternoon.
Hunter wanted Fleur. He’d wanted her two years ago but then danger had entered Jefferson, Montana and he’d had to protect her. He couldn’t let anything happen to Fleur.
But that had been two years ago and now the danger was gone. Hunter was determined to claim the delicate woman that had haunted his dreams for the past two years. Nothing was going to get in his way. Not even the woman who claimed she didn’t want him, but her eyes and her body told him something different.
He spotted her across the room and knew that she would be his. The beautiful English teacher was smart, gorgeous and sexy – and had secrets!
Joe watched Kelsie try to avoid him even as their gazes were pulled towards one another over and over. Joe became more fascinated with every heated, furtive glance. And when he kissed her, the lovely lady melted in his arms.
So who the hell was this Tommy guy that kept calling her? And why did the woman volunteer for every activity? Another good question – why was she baking over five hundred cookies on a Saturday morning? Joe knew of better things to be doing on a chilly morning and none of them involved flour or chocolate chips.
Kelsie couldn’t believe she’d just kissed the tall, dangerous-looking man! She didn’t even know his name! And why did he seem to show up everywhere she went? She had to keep him at a distance, to keep both of them safe. This attraction she felt for the too-tough, too-wealthy rancher was dangerous.
Because if he ever found out about her family…well, it was just better to leave and keep everyone safe.
So why wouldn’t Joe let her do that?! The man was relentless and sexy and annoying and…goodness, he made her body melt with just a look. Yes, he was too dangerous.
Betrayed by her first husband, Samantha packed up her life and drove out west. Never intending to stop in Montana, she felt called to the DeBron ranch. Landing a job as the cook was a life saver and, with the warm sunshine and fresh hair, she learned how to live again.
Not to trust though!
Charlie spotted the beautiful woman by the creek and couldn’t get her out of his mind. He had things to do. He didn’t have time to flirt.
So why was he riding by the creek – again?
Because something about the beautiful woman called to him.
Unfortunately, his strict moral code wouldn’t allow him to have an affair with an employee. So when he discovered that Samantha was none other than the new ranch cook “Sam”, he couldn’t allow himself to see her.
But he couldn’t stay away.
Marriage was the only answer. Being with Samantha wouldn’t violate his moral code if they were married.
Now to convince the little lady to take a chance on him. She didn’t trust men. Not after what her first husband put her through. But failure was not an option!
Kara James was not “that” kind of woman. And if Hunter West thought he could simply kiss her senseless and get her into bed, well…She wasn’t going to be his one night stand.
So why was he back in her life? And why was he demanding to purchase the most beautiful, perfect lake house she’d ever seen? And why did he keep kissing her as if she was the only woman in the world that mattered?
Hunter West had lost the beautiful, voluptuous red-head six months ago. But no matter how many women he dated, none could get the fiery woman out of his mind. So he was going to get her back. And he was going to figure out why she kept running away from him! One way or another, the lovely Kara James was going to be his! The mysterious woman with all of her secrets was going to reveal all to him.
She could sing like a hummingbird, had numerous platinum albums to her credit. But Lila Jamison, a.k.a. Delilah James, had no life. She went from concert to recording studio, working until she literally passed out. Fresh air, sleep and relaxation were the doctor’s orders. That’s how Lila found herself standing on her one hundred acre ranch with nothing but fresh air and pancakes to soothe her tired soul. Unfortunately, her ranch came with the hottest, orneriest, sexiest neighbor who had a horrible habit of stealing her pancakes. But was he the enemy? Was Jake really a reporter in disguise, ready to tell the world how sad and pathetic she was in real life?
Someone was trying to kill Jake and was willing to hurt innocent bystanders to achieve that goal. So he headed out of the cities and to his ranch in Montana where he could spot a stranger from miles away. So what was he to do about the beautiful red-head that came to town the day after his arrival? Surely this couldn’t be his assassin, he thought. She didn’t even know how to eat pancakes properly!
So what was the mission she was here to accomplish? Who was this mystery woman who couldn’t lie to save her soul but adopted every pathetic creature who limped onto her ranch?
She’d been in love with the man since her first day on the job. And that love had grown deeper the longer she worked for him. But the man was obsessed with another woman, the lovely Delilah Jamison, singer extraordinaire, international jet setter. Rebecca was just the assistant. The assistant with a secret. A secret love for her boss and a secret music passion that her boss could never know about.
From the moment he’d spotted her behind the receptionist’s desk, Marcus Benton had thought she was the sexiest, cutest and most interesting woman he’d ever met. He couldn’t get her out of his mind and, as she worked her way up in his company, he wanted her more and more. Working alongside her, he was determined to get to know the adorable Becca who buttoned her shirts up and wore prim clothes. He was dying to know what was beneath those conservative cardigans – and he wanted to know what else she was hiding behind those beautiful, amber eyes.
When Rebecca’s secret comes out, could she trust Marcus with her secret? Could she handle the repercussions?
Coming to Alaska, building a house and starting a new life – that was her dream. Until Chloe’s fiancé decides that he wants to venture out on his own in order to “find himself”. Then she’s left alone without a house, no car, a whole lot of building materials – and no way to build her new home.
Tucker can’t stand it. Chloe is the cutest, sexiest thing to hit Winthrop since…ever. And she’s sleeping out in a tent while sleet comes down, coating everything in ice. Not happening. He’s been half in love with the woman since she arrived and now, her fiancé is gone. Time to move in, sweep the woman off her feet and show her that Tucker was the better man.
But when the fiancé comes back, Tucker is trapped by his own machinations. Chloe thinks he manipulated the situation and, well, he had. Now he has to show her that he’d done it for her, because they were meant to be together.
The adorable, sexy teacher came into town…and blew Knox away! She was so completely wrong for him but…he couldn’t stay away. Knox knew she was good for the town, great for the kids she taught. And he more than happy to guide her on how to live in Alaska with the snow, the lack of daylight, all the animals and…
Who was he kidding? Andie was perfect. Just not for him.
Andie had fallen hard for the rough looking lumberjack/bartender. He was kind and generous, protective and…so hot he made her knees wobble just looking at him.
But he didn’t trust her. He’d been hurt in the past and was sure that she would get tired of life in the harsh Alaskan town.
Fortunately, Andie was made of sterner stuff. She’d grown up in Boston. Therefore, nothing could terrify her! She was here to stay. She just needed to convince Knox of that fact.
Every week, he went through heaven and hell. It was heaven to watch the lovely Tyla move about the bar, smiling to the customers, watch her sexy body, seeing her and laughing with her.
And know that she was completely off limits.
Tyla’s brother had joined the Marine Corps and asked Saeger to watch out for her. Unfortunately, all Saeger seemed to be able to do was watch Tyla – and lust after her.
Tyla had been in love with Saeger ever since the first moment she’d come back from The Peace Corps, but how did she get him to see her as a woman and not as a teenager? He acted like he was her big brother!
Seduction was the only answer.
But a sinister visitor to Winthrop threatens their happiness. Tyla must betray Saeger’s trust and love, or her brother will be killed.
How is she to choose between the brother she loves and the man she loves?
Violet knew exactly what she wanted in life and went after it. She had built up her craft store from a hole in the wall to a thriving Internet success, she had friends and a warm home in a beautiful state. And when she was attending a bachelorette party, she thought she’d found the most exciting man with whom she could share her life.
Creek Jones had moved away from the mainland and bought himself a mountain. He could run his business empire from afar, away from the negative aspects of the world. With pristine air and beautiful landscapes, he thought he’d had it all.
Until an adorable brunette walked behind his bar in tight jeans and a fluffy sweater. He was knocked out. Violet Jenkins thought he was a bartender, had no idea that he was wealthy. All she wanted was him.
And he wanted her.
Until Violet’s stepfather explained that Violet’s “services” came with a price.
In the end, his morals wouldn’t allow him to pay for sex. And when Violet discovered that he had been, she was livid. Hurt. Disgusted.
All the precious, warm feelings were broken with his words.
Could Creek figure out how to get her back from such a heinous error?
She’d told him that they wouldn’t work! Princess Shantra had explained, in very great detail, to Sheik Laithir del Hassam, Ruler of Piora, that she could never measure up to his first wife’s vivacious and exciting reputation. But did he listen to her? No! The man insisted that a match between them would work. Now she was married to Laithir and trying to figure out how to make him love her while living in his fabulous first wife’s shadow after her tragic death.
Sheik Laithir had vowed never to marry again. After his first, secretly disastrous marriage, he never wanted to contemplate putting himself through that, or once again risk the scandal and shame it could bring to the citizens of Piora.
But then Princess Shantra stepped into his world. She was refreshing and honest, kind and creative. And she responded to his slightest touch! The lovely princess didn’t think she could measure up to his first wife? Good! She would be perfect!
Needing space and a breath of fresh air, Prince Turken del Abbas Samara, Kilar’s Minister of Defense, slips out of the palace alone, never suspecting that the rebels would be watching. But Turk’s capture proved that he had not been as stealthy as he’d thought.
Fortunately, he’s brought to a doctor with silver eyes, a tender touch and a body that he would love to possess. Fate has brought Doctor Raven Bishop to his side, and he’s determined not to fight it. She is too delectable to resist.
Raven couldn’t believe the giant man that had been brought into her surgery. But as he recovered, she found herself lying to protect him, fearing for his safety. Unfortunately, in saving Turk’s life, she finds herself swept away with his escape. The protector becomes the captive.

Had his former lover fallen into the arms of another man?
Jina just wanted sleep! If she couldn’t have the man of her dreams, she would settle for a good night’s sleep.

And then he showed up at her door!
She’d left him! And on their wedding day, no less! Stefan Kozlov couldn’t believe that the woman he’d married had disappeared only hours after exchanging their vows! After months of happy courting, interspersed with cold showers as he forced them to wait for their wedding night, Livia had left without explanation. Stefan was angry and confused, but still determined to reunite and consummate their relationship. Even if Livia wouldn’t have him, her mother’s medical emergency still made it critical that he find her!
Livia had thought everything was perfect! The perfect man and the perfect life! So what had gone wrong? Why hadn’t she seen the clues? Surely there had been something that could have warned her of Stefan’s deep dark secret. Unfortunately, even her knowledge of his true nature couldn’t stop her from falling under his spell.

The only reason Kylie had come back to the palace was to prove to everyone that she was over Tarek. Her girlish infatuation was a thing of the past. So how did she end up dining with the sheik? And why was her body still vibrating when he kissed her? Why couldn’t she simply put her infatuation in the past where it belonged?
Tarek took one look at the fascinating beauty and knew that Kylie was the woman he was going to have for his wife. He didn’t want to marry, but the terms of the peace treaty were absolute. So if he had to do it, why not do it with the lovely, feisty and sexy woman that he couldn’t get out of his mind?
Luna couldn’t believe the chain of events that had led to her wedding day. All she’d wanted was to save her small village, to help the residents to get out from underneath their crippling debt. So she’d written to the man who owned the bank. And here she was, walking down the aisle toward a man she barely knew. A man who could make her body sing but who could crush her hopes and dreams with a few harsh words.
Dassar needed a wife. The lovely Luna fit none of his criteria. She was too soft, too sweet and would be hurt by palace life. So why couldn’t he forget her? Why could she get under his skin so easily? And why couldn’t he simply walk away?
Duty. Responsibility. Those were the priorities of Layla’s upbringing. So when her father announced that she is to marry the Sheik of Lurasa, she accepted her duty and steeled her heart to a loveless life of obligation.
What she refused to accept was Garon’s intense effect on her. The man wasn’t what she anticipated! And he wouldn’t conform to her plans or expectations. This was an arranged marriage! They had appearances to maintain, duties to adhere to. Why were these crazy feelings flying between them every time he touched her?
Garon entered into the marriage expecting only to be faithful to his wife and to the agreement he had made with the other sheiks. What he wasn’t expecting was a fiery beauty that set his senses on fire or the intense need to have her. Responsibility be damned, this woman was his! And he was going to teach her about living and loving.
Their story began five years ago. Callie fell madly, crazily in love with Zahir. But the war in his country was raging and nurturing their relationship was tenuous at best. When Callie was captured, the experience was terrifying. Zahir found and rescued her, but he knew it would be impossible to insulate her from danger in his country. Despite his wishes to be together, he knew that to keep her safe he must send her away. However, he wouldn’t let her go until she was his bride. In a secret wedding, he married her, and then spirited her to safety.
She arrived in her haven traumatized, fearful, homeless…and pregnant. Slowly, she rebuilt her life, gave birth to her son and somehow learned to get on with living without Zahir. For five long years, Callie recovered from the nightmare of her captivity. And she raises her son.
When Zahir enters her life once more, she can’t believe that the fire between them is hotter than before. But she refuses to give in, despite its intensity. She’s too afraid that the peace between the previously warring countries will end and that she or her son could be in peril again. She yearns to feel safe, but can she defy her heart or deny her son his father?
Ciara shivered when she felt his eyes upon her. She trembled when she looked upon him as well. When they found themselves in the woods, alone and tempted, she fought the feeling…but it was pointless. The allure of the man was just too strong. So she was going to ride the wave of passion this captivating man offered, and ignore the consequences until she had to go back to her own world.
Zoran couldn’t believe the beauty that he found in the woods. Normally, his one-week respite from his official responsibilities as Prince of Larcatia was a time of isolation and contemplation. Now his only contemplation was how to get to know the lovely wood nymph better. And isolation was the furthest thing from his mind.
So when their time together was over, it was shocking to find out that they were actually both royalty in neighboring countries! And even more unbelievable, that they were both obligated to marry someone else! To hell with royal obligations! Zoran would make Ciara his wife.
Jalayla couldn’t believe the arrogance of the man! To actually order her around? How rude! But beneath the surface of her anger towards the handsome prince, there was a simmering heat, an uninvited fascination with the man that she couldn’t seem to fight. Every time he touched her, every time he even looked at her, she felt that strange sensation.
Tasir wanted to fire her at first sight. She argued with him about everything and challenged him in ways that no other woman dared. So why did he want to pick the woman up and make love to her? Initially, he didn’t know that the lovely woman with fiery eyes and a sensuous figure was the one and only Princess Jalayla. And was determined that he would have her for his own.
So what’s a man to do when he finds out that the woman of his dreams is promised to marry another man?
Jilted at the altar! Good grief, Jasmine really could pick ‘em! But she was resilient and decided to go on the honeymoon anyway. She would learn to live as an independent woman and be happy with her life. What she hadn’t anticipated was falling into the arms of the horrible, critical and enticingly handsome Antoniv Petrov. Literally!
His strong arms and wealth were everything she could not want in a man. She had to find her own way! Her sisters had both fallen for wealthy, powerful men and Jasmine was determined to be different. Besides, Antoniv only wanted a sexual relationship and the Hart sisters seemed to have inherited a crazy fertility somehow – both had gotten pregnant despite precautions.
So there was no way she was going to risk getting involved with the amazingly handsome Russian billionaire. There were too many reasons to stay away from him. But only one reason she couldn’t – she wanted him!
Antoniv couldn’t believe the little spitfire who had fallen into his arms. She was a sexy little siren that he was determined to have in his bed. One by one, he eliminated all of the excuses she had for avoiding a relationship with him. And in the end, Antoniv Petrov always gets what he wants.
Five years ago, Janine Hart fell in love – and her world fell apart. She found herself pregnant and in love with a man who didn’t know how to love. Anyone! So she left and came back to the arms of her family, pulled her life together and gave birth to two beautiful twin daughters.
Now Micah is back and he wants to try again. He’s willing to try things her way, but can she risk being hurt again? And how was she to explain that he was a father? How could she tell this powerful, Italian male that she wouldn’t put herself into that position again – especially when she couldn’t avoid falling into his arms?
Dante Liakos had yet another challenge to overcome in securing his business empire’s future, but this one was much more personal in nature – the need for a wife and an heir. Without them, he could lose control of the empire he had worked so hard to rebuild and expand. However, as he had found so many times before, turning a challenge into a success was about recognizing the right opportunity and acting upon it decisively. In Jayden Hart, he saw such an opportunity, enclosed in the rare combination of innocence, beauty and brilliance - a combination he couldn't resist despite his attempts to remain aloof from the relationship!
Normally poised and self-assured, Jayden’s world had taken an alarming turn. What initially had seemed like a nuisance was quickly becoming a significant threat to her business, her family, and her whole way of life! And she had no idea how to avoid catastrophe. Dante’s suggested solution presented a potential lifeline, but with what strings attached? Would the solution be worse than the crisis that had required it? And how was she to avoid falling in love with her secret husband?
While strolling the runways of Milan, Andie sees him and her heart begins to race. There is just something about the man that changes her world, makes everything brighter and happier. The more she gets to know Antonio, the more she falls in love with him. When their relationship reaches a physical crescendo, she tells him how her heart has fallen for him, thinking that he feels the same way. Unprepared, and suffering from a painful history with love, Antonio’s faltering response breaks her heart. Andie feels like she has finally met the heartless tycoon that everyone describes.
Although he isn’t able to respond in kind, Antonio feels far more than he would like when the lovely Andie professes her love for him. He knows that he wants to protect her, that he doesn’t want her to leave him, but he isn’t ready to be that vulnerable again. Her departure leaves him empty, until one day she shows up at his office, scared, too thin, still painfully beautiful…and pregnant. This time around, he is determined to keep her with him.

Charles Henson the Third was a frustrated man. Having recently parted ways with his girlfriend, he was free to focus on the business of his bank, and business was very good. However, his attention was repeatedly drawn to the beautiful and free spirited Fiona Chandler. As executor for her grandfather’s will, Charles was responsible for overseeing any disbursements from the estate, but he found himself taking a much more personal interest in this client than normal.

So he was completely unprepared for the emotional punch he experienced when he looked at the paintings on the walls at this gallery. Within five minutes of walking in, he’d bought the entire collection of the anonymous artist.

Unfortunately, the end of that weekend came much too quickly when Damon disappeared without a word while she slept. Gabby struggled to recover from her encounter with the most amazing man she’d ever met. She was finally pulling herself together when he swooped back into her life. She was furious that he thought he could just march back to her with no explanation or apology for the way he’d left. But the shock of discovering that she was pregnant overshadowed her anger, leaving her shaking and terrified.

Her destiny wasn’t to be a man’s arm candy!
Zarah Andromeda Busain had known what her role as a princess of Tasain would be since she could first walk and talk. That didn’t mean she agreed with it. From the beginning, she fought against those expectations, challenging them and asking why. So when it came down to the point of choosing a husband from a group of ten, she chose none.
She followed a friend to a small town outside of London, infuriating her older brother but finding peace and satisfaction in helping others.
That peace was shattered the day Derrick Huntington walked into her world. He was big and huge and disgustingly handsome with a confidence that irritated her beyond words. And when he touched her, she forgot to breathe, when he kissed her, she forgot to remember that he wasn’t the man she could marry.
Derrick couldn’t believe that the perfect woman for him had been discovered right in his own little village. She was beautiful, smart and didn’t want him in any way. But when he touched her, she shivered. When he kissed her, she melted in his arms, kissing him back with a passion that drove him wild.
The woman had a secret though. And when that secret had her disappear, Derrick moved heaven and earth to find the woman he loved. Even when it meant facing down a powerful sheik and older brother, he was going to find his woman and bring her back.
Isla couldn’t believe it when her older brother threatened her with marriage to that evil monster. Everyone knew that Sheik Hussan El-Hamin was a horrible human being who ruled the neighboring country with an iron fist. He wouldn’t even let reporters into his country – probably because they would report his abuses!
Now the man sitting in the front row at her brother’s wedding…? He was a different matter! This man was tall, handsome, gloriously male with stunning eyes and a muscular physique. But she knew that her brother would betroth her to someone who could be a political ally so she had to eliminate the handsome stranger from her thoughts.
As soon as Hussan saw his friend’s sister, he knew he wanted the lovely Isla to be his wife. When she had to smother her laughter about mis-matched shoes, his choice was made.
Convincing the slender beauty that he wasn’t a monster was a whole other matter, he realized. But from their very first kiss, he knew he was up to the challenge.
Sidra couldn’t believe it when the man stormed into her life. He was everything she’d been looking for in a man; tall, handsome, intelligent – and after several secret meetings, she also found out that he was the ultimate lover.
When their brief interlude is cut short, Sidra is hopeful that they might be able to manage a long distance relationship. But after three weeks with no word from Rashid, she had to accept that he had a different perception of their liaison than she had.
Rashid thought that Sidra was as close to perfection as possible. She was funny and intelligent not to mention beautiful and sexy. Unfortunately, he’d lost track of her when he had to travel back to Tasain to resolve an emergency. When he finally found her again after three weeks of searching, he found her having a drink with another man! He was livid and tricked her in order to get her back on his turf.
His campaign to get her to fall in love with him had barely begun when he discovers that the weekend they’d spent together had created a baby! Now he had to marry Sidra as soon as possible.
Was he marrying her only to protect his unborn child, Sidra worried? Or was there more to his feelings than just preserving the next heir to the throne?
Emotionally abused all her life by a domineering father, Emma thought she might have a shot at happiness after his death. But then she heard the terms of his will! She must marry Jason Montenegro and give birth to a son. Only then would he give her the location of her mother – a woman who Emma thought had abandoned her at the age of five, only to find out that she had been fighting for custody all these years.
Jason was livid that Emma’s father had information about his past and wouldn’t divulge the answer until he married Emma – a woman who’s reputation was worse than his own. And he had to produce a child with this woman?
So be it! He’d do anything to get that information, even marry a woman who had apparently slept with any man that crossed her path.
But as he got to know the gentle beauty, he discovered that she was nothing like her father. She was kind and sweet, generous to a fault. And he was falling in love with his enemy’s daughter!
A man everyone loves to hate, including his fiancée! Damon Kelopatros was the ultimate businessman, considering that all things in life should be reduced down to a logical thought process, including selecting a wife. After hiring a firm, he went after his selection with formidable focus.
What he hadn’t anticipated was being intensely attracted to the woman he’d emotionlessly selected. Nor had he anticipated actually respecting and admiring her. These were things that he wanted for his mistress, but did not need in his wife – until he met Eva. And then he wanted all of her. He loved her smiles, her lush figure and her enchanting sense of humor.
And he especially loved the way she fought him every step of the way. He found that winning her over was more of a challenge than he expected, but each victory was cherished more because it had been so difficult to win.
Eva couldn’t believe that a man would simply hire a firm to select a wife but Damon was the most emotionless, horrible, arrogant and reprehensible man she’d ever met. Unfortunately, he was also the only man who made her heart pound simply by a glance across the room, or by just a touch of his warm, strong fingers.
How could she feel so much for a a man so irritating? Then she discovered that the man had his softer side too. As she fought him over every detail, she also learned that the man wasn’t as cold as he wanted everyone to think he was. He was kind and gentle, sweet and caring.
And she was falling in love with a man she’d originally thought was the devil.
Kallista couldn’t believe what Hector Christophe was suggesting. He wanted to marry her? But they barely knew each other! They’d exchanged possibly three or four sentences over the past several years, and now he was suggesting that they marry to save her father’s business. Only Hector had the resources, but Kallista’s father wouldn’t accept help from anyone but family. Hector’s solution? Become part of Kallista’s family.
She didn’t understand him – he was kind and considerate one moment, then grouchy and insulting the next. So how could his touch send sparks of electricity through her body? Why does his kiss make her forget everything? How could she fall in love with such a mercurial man?
Hector knew he didn’t deserve Kallista. She was sweet and pure, intelligent and witty. He’d grown up an orphan, survived on the streets by stealing for his next meal and slept in places others had abandoned. If it weren’t for kallista’s father, he might still be stealing but the man had picked Hector up and cleaned him up, given him hope and urged him to become something. Now he had the power and wealth to pay her father back but the only way he could do that was by marrying his daughter.
Falling in love with Kallista had been the last thing he’d wanted to do. But she got under his skin, wove through his defenses and he’d been no match for her smile or kindness.

In the midst of their struggle, Kate discovers that the current owner of Jamison’s, whose motives she thought were pure, is in fact the true enemy.

What he hadn’t counted on was Sasha’s soulful eyes coming back to haunt him, or her previously slender body now gaunt with her weight loss. If she’d cheated on him, why did she look like she was the one that had been betrayed?
And then, in the moonlit darkness, the past didn’t matter any longer. It was just her soft scent, her tender touch and her longing looks that drew him in. From the first moment they’d met they hadn’t been able to deny their attraction to each other and the hurt each thought the other had caused couldn’t stop that attraction from taking over and overwhelming both of them once more.

How could he not fall for someone like that? He just needed to find out what she was hiding!

She tried very hard to hate Sam for that betrayal, but her body couldn’t resist the allure of his magnificent physique. It was like her mind was telling her to run but her feet were…not just standing still but wrapping themselves around Sam’s waist while her mouth kissed him with all the longing and need pent up for years.
Sam stepped in and gave her the courage to follow her dream. And that led to one incredible night in his bed. A night Sam was unwilling to allow being a one night stand.

And oh why does that man always have to be around when she makes a fool of herself?!
Too bad she can't keep herself out of his arms. To make matters worse, his touch only inflames her desire for the man to heights she's terrified of investigating.
First Story in teh Cordova Royal Ramily trilogy!
Princess Anastasia Elisia Marquenda of Cordova is horrified when she is told that, despite a decade long betrothal, her wedding date to the arrogant, womanizing, domineering Prince Erik Marcus Phillips of Montbain is three weeks in the future! She decides that she should have a little freedom as well. Escaping from her gilded cage for only a few hours to purchase a cup of coffee is exciting. And when she runs into the most handsome man she's ever met in her life? It only gets better.
Freedom, and love, can be quite addictive. But what to do about the engagement to a man she loathes versus the man she's fallen in love with?
