Ivy Layne has had her nose stuck in a book since she first learned to decipher the English language. Sometime in her early teens, she stumbled across her first Romance, and the die was cast. Though she pretended to pay attention to her creative writing professors, she dreamed of writing steamy romance instead of literary fiction. These days, she’s neck deep in alpha heroes and the smart, sexy women who love them.
Married to her very own alpha hero (who rubs her back after a long day of typing, but also leaves his socks on the floor). Ivy lives in the mountains of North Carolina where she and her other half are having a blast raising two energetic little boys. Aside from her family, Ivy’s greatest loves are coffee and chocolate, preferably together.
He walked away from me once. I won’t give him the chance to do it again.
I’m finally getting my life back on track…and then he shows up.
The only man I’ve ever loved. The man who broke my heart.

Noah is all about business. He’s here to make a deal with my boss, and I’m just convenient. Again.
This time, I’m going to protect my body, even if I can’t protect my heart.
Ella doesn’t trust me. I get it. I do.
The first time around, I f*cked it all up.
I lost her, and I’ve missed her every day since.
Now I’m back, and I’m not walking away.
Ella thinks I’m only in town on business. She’s wrong.
I’m here for her, and I’m not leaving until she’s mine.

It takes place in the same world as the rest of the books in the Scandals of the Bad Boy Billionaires series and includes many of the characters from the other books.

Note: The Billionaire’s Secret Kiss was previously published in the first edition of the Dark Desires box set. It is currently only available as a single title release.
We said we could do casual. We swore we wouldn’t fall in love. We lied.
I didn’t buy my house just so I could stare at the guy next door. I swear.
It’s not my fault he mows the lawn with his shirt off. His tattooed muscles are an eye magnet.
I can’t look away.
The first kiss is an accident. One taste and I have to have more.
We were supposed to keep it casual. Neighbors with benefits. No big deal.
When a client comes after me for turning him into the FBI, Lucas swears he’ll keep me safe.
I’m not supposed to fall in love with him. That’s not the deal.
I’m walking straight into broken heart and I can’t stop myself.
My new neighbor is a nightmare. Or a wet dream.
Charlotte Winters, the crown princess of the Winters clan.
It shouldn’t be hard to keep my distance. We have nothing in common.
I grew up not knowing where my next meal was coming from. She grew up with a personal chef.
But Charlie isn’t what I expected. It’s not just that she’s funny, and determined, and sexy as hell.
She’s vulnerable. She’s in danger. And she turns to fire in my arms.
One kiss and I’m in too deep to walk away.
I have no business being friends with a woman like her, much less claiming a place in her bed.
Too f*king bad.
Now that I've had a taste of Charlie, I’m not giving her up. Not until I have to.
Even if it destroys us both.

For two years I held Vance Winters off… Right up until the day my fiancé dumped me for his mistress and Vance kissed me senseless.
Vance Winters was six feet of dangerously beautiful mayhem. Wicked blue eyes, tousled blond hair, and golden skin covered in tattoos. Trouble. I should have taken one look and run in the other direction. I should have told him to take his job offer and shove it up his tight, perfect ass. I should have done a lot of things.
I won’t lie. One touch of Vance’s mouth to mine was better than all four years with my ex. I was tempted. So very tempted. Tempted, but not stupid. How many women had I escorted from his bed in the two years I’d worked for him? Vance didn’t do commitment and I’d been tossed aside one time too many. There was no way I was going to throw my broken heart at his feet, even if I suspected the orgasms might be worth it.
Then she showed up. Rosalie. Only three months old, and she changed both of our lives in an instant. I could resist Vance when he was just my billionaire playboy boss. But could I keep my heart safe as I watched him fall in love with his daughter?

I was in big trouble. The biggest. Running out of time, I turned to him. Jacob Winters promised he'd solve all my problems. All I had to do was become his pet. With some men, that kind of deal might have been a nightmare. Jacob Winters was a dream come true.
I was raised to be a lady, not a man's plaything. But with Jacob, I almost had it all; pleasure like I'd never known and protection from the danger stalking me. Was it greedy to want more? I had his body, but I wanted his heart.
I told myself it was just sex. We were providing each other a mutual service, nothing more. Right? I couldn't possibly be foolish enough to fall in love with him.
I must have been crazy. I'd wanted Abigail for years, I won't deny it. But I don't pursue married women, and her husband was a disaster waiting to happen. Everything about Abigail warned me to steer clear, including the lady herself. Some women might cheat, but not her. Abigail was too noble for her own good. Beautiful and untouchable. Then her husband was murdered and every dark shadow he'd held back came after Abigail at once.
She was on the run, and I was the only man who could save her. The best things come to men who wait, and I'd been waiting. Abigail was mine. I didn't want a girlfriend. I definitely didn't need a wife. I just wanted her. In my home. In my bed. I was going to own every inch of her elegantly curved body. I'd keep her for as long as I wanted her, and then we'd both walk away. What could possibly go wrong?
