A ‘guest’ of the Lathar, Jess has become used to being at court, especially as it allows her to be close to a certain tall, handsome healer.

Laarn never thought anything of his scars before. In his culture they mark his rank as the best healer in the empire, but he starts to cover them when Jessica, the delicate little human female who holds his interest, won’t look at them. He wants her, but his duty lies elsewhere until everything changes…

A junior nurse aboard the Combined Fleet Ship Valkyrie, Samara's days are usually filled with minor bumps and scraps and the occasional health or workspace check. But when a dangerous prisoner is transferred aboard, she finds herself on brig duty. Dealing with the big, lethal looking military grade cyborg should be terrifying, but one look into his green eyes and she can't think of anything other than what his big, hard body would look like under the grey ship suit...

She's small, soft...and his enemy. He should keep his hands to himself and forget her.

Captured and en route to a medical facility for dissection and study, cyborg Lyon expects nothing but pain and degradation from his captors. But Samara isn't like the others, treating his wounds with care and igniting a fire deep within. When she neglects to ensure his cuffs are locked tight, all hell breaks loose. A hot, sensual hell against the cell wall. When his team arrives, Lyon knows he should walk away...but he can't. His little human has gotten under his skin. He'll take her as payment for his suffering, keep her in his bed and pleasure them both for as long as he has breath left in his body.

However, the universe, and the Fleet, have other ideas. A tracker on board brings a horde of fleet ships down on their heads.

Can Lyon and Samara survive betrayal, a fleet attack and their own suspicions, or will their happily ever after disintegrate under fire?

To clear her debt, she must marry him...

Still in both Logan’s debt and his bed, Zara hatches a plan to free herself of the King’s clutches. She’s no man’s toy and each time they touch, she aches for something more. But her plan backfires when he offers to clear her debt to him on one condition… she agrees to marry him. Apparently it’s good for PR...

But the solitaire is barely on her finger before she’s snatched away. Someone has other plans for Zara, and they don’t include a happily ever after with Logan. Caged and offered as a prize for a fight, more then her own life could be on the line before the night is through...

But some battles don’t take place in the ring. Some battles are of the heart, an arena Logan is wholly unprepared for. But when the chips are down and his kitten is threatened… he’ll do whatever it takes to get her back. Even if it means something worse than killing...

In order to pay off her debt, Zara shares cagefighter Logan Reese's bed...or rather a wall in the locker rooms or the back seat of the alpha werelion's limo, since actual beds don't feature large in their arrangement.

She doesn't want more. Honest.

She's his. End of story.

Wereferret Paige Baxter has an itty-bitty shifting problem. Mainly she spontaneously shifts, and that’s a problem. Her answer is to remain calm, practice yoga, and stay away from anything that could scare her… or surprise her… or arouse her. Of course, the super-hottie ?hunk of werecougar ?she runs into at the M&M Mating Agency ticks off all three “must never happen at once” boxes.

Paige does what any embarrassed, self-respecting woman would do in that situation—she runs. Unfortunately—or fortunately—cats love a good hunt.

Called out of retirement to join a friend's team, combat surgeon Sedj is ready for life on the front line again.

Sometimes a gal’s gotta admit defeat and decide how many cats she’s gonna have when she’s old and crazy…

Chloe Hall has tried every dating website out there and continues to connect with duds. Then her mother signs her up for a new dating—mating—service. Human or shifter, everyone is welcome as long as they’re looking for love and not their next bang. Chloe doesn’t care if her mate roars and sheds or howls and smells like wet dog. He’ll be hers. It’s not until she meets Holt—a massive, muscular, totally gorgeous werecougar—that she realizes she really will become a cat lady, and he absolutely drives her crazy.

Werecougar Holt Moore’s animal is restless and craves things that scare the shit outta him: a mate, cubs, and a white picket fence. It doesn’t seem to remember that cougars are solitary animals in the wild, which also applies to his human half. His cat is too dominant to tolerate other shifters and when he’s on two legs, he towers over every human he meets. He’s big and mean and that’s how he likes it. Then he meets Chloe—curvy, luscious, human Chloe—and realizes he needs to add “possessive” and “biggest asshole on the planet” to his list of traits. Well, not all relationships are smooth sailing.

Today is a good day to... get married?

Kidnapped by her very own alien hunk, Cat Moore is rapidly adapting to life as the chosen woman of bad-ass War Commander Tarrick K'Vass. It's not so bad. Her sexy alien has a thing about making sure her every need is met and has some very inventive ways of doing so. Until she gives him a bad case of mating marks around his wrist, and all bets are off. They're married without so much as a bended knee in sight, then summoned to the Imperial Court so the Emperor can bless their union.

Why? Because her sexy alien lover left one thing out when he introduced himself. Like being a freaking alien prince.

But someone doesn't want humans and lathar getting it on, and they certainly don't like the possibility of little human-lathar babies. In fact, they'd be more than happy if Cat and the other women didn't survive past the wedding.

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned? Try a bride whose alien wedding just got gatecrashed. Seems humans might be more like the Lathar than anyone thought...

One weekend, that's all he'd thought he needed. Now a lifetime won't be enough...

Eva is screwed.

Maybe. Okay, definitely. And in a bad, not a good, way. Her trouble-magnet little brother has gone and gotten involved with vampires...and the deal's gone bad. Now he owes them and their repayment plan involves dead bodies rather than monthly payments. Which means Eva has no choice but to approach the last person she ever wanted to for help.

Alex. Her older, hot, ex-cousin from her mother's short-lived third, or was it fourth, marriage. He's also a billionaire. Hot, ripped, wealthy... Oh, yeah, and an alpha werewolf.

There's just one problem. Alex Kingwood never does anything without a price...

The question is, can she pay it?

What's worse than getting bitten by a werewolf? Not taking your anti-furball pills and then getting bitten by a werewolf. Which, FYI, sucks.

Called to investigate a midnight break in, Detective Carla 'Ce' Callahan doesn't expect to come face to snout with a pissed off werewolf. And she's all outta silver bullets. But hey, she still manages to hold her own, even if she does get a bite on the ass for her trouble. Now she's in werewolf custody until the full moon while they wait for an answer to a very important question. Will she shift? Or won't she?

Doesn't really matter when she meets the hot and sexy enforcer for the pack... Looking at him, she thinks she could get used to the furry side of life. Especially when the guy has an ass like that. She wants a tiny nibble...

Riley Copeland's life sucks. The woman he loved and brought over to the lycan way of life revels in trying to get him killed and his pack alpha seems to think he's some kind of furry babysitter.

Of course, there's someone out there that thinks it'd be really great if she was six feet under. Now she's on the run and the chase is on. Ce may get away, but Riley is gonna catch her... and her heart.

Sergeant Cat Moore has a little problem. Well, actually a big problem... a big alien war-group sized problem. When her base is attacked and boarded by a Lathar war group, she finds herself in the sights of their leader, Tarrick K'Vass.

The strong, not so silent and ruthless type, Tarrick's duty as a war commander means little time for himself. With no women of their own, a base full of human women is a bounty he can't ignore. Nor can he ignore the little human whose voice called out to him across the galaxy, a woman he'll stop at nothing to make his own. Even if it means a little blackmail...

Mistress of the City, Reena Leroy, has been bedding new werewolf Archer Davis since the Choosing. He’s hot, the sex is fantastic. Just one problem… He’s never shifted properly, and without it, he’s seen as ‘less’ in Lycan society.

Of course, there’s always someone with an angle. This time it’s the Council of Alphas, who have decided to use Archer’s little shifting problem and his continued presence in Reena’s bed as an excuse to remove her from power. Gearing up for a fight, Reena needs all her wits about her to deal with the council. Until Archer’s shifting problem is revealed as less of a problem, and more of a case of mistaken identity…

Now Reena’s problems include a coup, a werewolf pack without an alpha, and a hot as hell, definitely NOT wolf intent on making her his as soon as possible.

After a spate of kidnappings, her head of security suggests she get a bodyguard, and she manages not to laugh her ass off before telling him no. With no social life to speak of, and certainly no sex life, what does she need a shadow for? What the heck was he going to guard, her pizza?

Andrew Davison doesn’t do sweet. He’s hard as nails and has a background that scares the shit out of most people. The rest want to hire him. When a friend asks for a favor, Drew can’t say no. Teaching a spoiled, rich CEO that her security needs an overhaul should be an in and out job. That is, until he finds himself with her curves pressed tight to his body, awakening a hunger he can’t tamp down.

Sparks fly between the two that neither can stop. She’s irritated by his bossiness and he’s tired of being tempted by her. When her life is on the line though, he’s the only one who will do anything to save her. Anything. Up to and including giving his own life to save hers.

Emotions erupt and wills are tested. One of them will give in to the other before the possibility of forever is taken out of their hands.

Mistress of the City, Reena Leroy, picked her partner for the Midwinter Choosing only to have him disappear from her bed before she woke. Now she's at his pack house to find out why... But things aren't what she expects. Archer's not a wolf, or wasn't until a few days ago. Now he's chained in his family's basement as he undergoes conversion. But not everyone survives the madness, and as a natural alpha, Archer's a prime candidate for going feral.

There's just one thing that might bring him back from the brink... Will Reena put her life on the line to save a wolf from madness?

Archer knows something's wrong with him, but since he can't remember his own name, he's got no idea what it is. All he knows is the fury that inhabits his skin. A fury that is only eased by the little female whose voice and scent soothes the beast inside him.

Now if he can just convince her to come closer, maybe he can make her his, and tame the fury in his blood.

A new city, a new choosing...

The Midwinter Ball...a time when the lycan packs of the city are required to send an offering to please the Mistress of the City; a male wolf...young, virile and eager to please the Mistress in her bed.

Archer isn't a wolf, but his younger brother, Seth, is. The only unmated male in their pack, he's about to be served up on a silver platter for the Mistress, and only Archer seems to have an issue with Seth's age. He might be an adult in the wolfy world, but to Archer's mind, he's still too young. Trouble is, if Seth doesn't go, someone else does... Which leaves just one person crazy enough to walk into the Mistress's den and pretend to be a wolf.

Reena is bored stupid. She hates the Midwinter Choosing, hates the fact that all the males are paraded in front of her like damn peacocks, and hates the fact that her normal cover story is happily mated, which means she HAS to pick a partner this year.

Then a handsome alpha asks her for a dance, obviously unaware who she is, and all bets are off...

The fact that their leader, Jensen Haye, is possibly the hottest guy this side of the Keltairan expanse is something Tessa tries very hard not to let affect her plans. Very hard. Well, not that hard. But in her defense, the guy is sex on legs. Just one...err, two problems. He's not human and he's pissed at her after her Intel sent a mission bad...So why do his growls turn her on like nothing else?

Jensen Haye thinks Tessa is the hottest thing alive. A femme fatale. She's mysterious, alluring and ...human, so she's way too delicate for a brute like him, and that's before factoring in the beastly side of his nature. But anger loosens the bonds he holds on his inhuman side and when she offers...he takes.

Two operatives, one abandoned warehouse in the back end of beyond... an afternoon neither will ever forget.

Smut-Shorties: A great on-the-go short to satisfy your craving for smut!

One sexy BBW and two hot alphas = a night of hot passion never to be forgotten.

Nat was warned to stay away from the Manor on the hill. She was warned about the wolves that protected their village...warned that women who caught their eye were known to go missing.

Did she listen? Hell no. Why should she listen to old wives tales when no one had seen the Langdon Wolves, the last of their line, for years? They were probably dead by now, and even if they weren't she wasn't a werewolf. Not really. Her family had been human since her great-great grandmother's time.

But wolves are long-lived, particularly the Stone-Wolf Langdon alphas. When she steps onto Langdon land, she finds out the punishment for trespassing is a hot night of passion with two alpha males.

Smut-Shorties: A great on-the-go short to satisfy your craving for smut!

The Midwinter Ball...a time when the lycan packs of the city are required to send an offering to please the Master of the City; a woman. Young, nubile and eager to please the Master in his bed.

Only this year, the struggling Trevais pack are all out of young and nubile, forcing Alpha's sister, Cyan Trevais to attend as the Midwinter Offering. Which is fine. Totally cool. Plump and older than all the other offerings, she's got this. No way will the Master be interested in her. She'll be fine.

Until she slaps and insults another guest, bringing her to the attention of the Master of the City, who is more than a little interested indeed. An all night kind of interested...

It's never easy staying ahead of the pack, but for Penny, it might just save her life...

Since ditching her pack after an offer she “couldn't” refuse from her tyrannical pack alpha, Penny’s been on the run. Always on the move, she never stays in one place for long, avoiding other werewolves like the plague. As the full moon approaches, this one brings with it her toughest challenge yet—her heat phase. And so, rather than letting her animal instincts rule, to force her to bed the first man she comes across, Penny hatches a plan that involves a basement and chains, but sadly, the non-kinky kind.

But lone wolf Cade Steele has other ideas. He's watched Penny from afar since she was turned, and now that he's found her, he's determined not to let the little she-wolf face her heat on her own. Cade is wolf enough to match her animal instinct, and alpha enough to claim her. As his mate, her body may become part of his territory, but her heart would be an altogether different matter.

When Penny’s past finally catches up with her, her ex-alpha isn't taking no for an answer this time. The question is, with their lives on the line, can Penny and Cade answer the call of the wild?

He’s found his mate. But can he convince her that he’s her dragon?

Working for the Paranormal Protection Agency has never been boring, but shadow-dragon Duke didn’t expect to meet his mate in the line of duty. He certainly didn’t expect a warrior every inch his match, or for her to slap him across the ass with her tail and take off across the city.

With Baron on a very personal protection detail, Duke has to fly solo on the pair’s investigation into the warlock who nearly killed Baron’s mate. Just one problem, his mate is working with the warlock. So, dead or alive, he has to bring her in…

She found the one thing she didn’t want. Her mate. Now she needs to get rid of him before he ruins her mission…

Sleeping for centuries has it’s drawbacks, Chase knew that going in. What she didn’t expect was to wake with a Warlock’s spelled collar around her neck and to find her charge, the Queen’s daughter, in a cage. Vowing to free them both will take skill and strength and she doesn’t need the distraction of a hot as hell male dragon trying to make his claim on her. Even though her heart aches to complete their joining, she can’t. Not yet.

The mission, or her heart. Can she have both? Or will she need one to complete the other?

The only thing they have in common? Really…sharp…teeth.

Major Antonia Fielding has one goal: to escape the clutches of the Project. With the blood-virus infecting her system, though, a body bag is likely her only way out. Until her boss lets slip that he may just have a cure for her—if she brings in an escaped Lycan.

Can she trust him? Now there’s the million-dollar question. Then again, can she afford not to take that chance?

Darce Foster was a Special Forces soldier, until the Project got hold of him. Now he’s a Lycan, a lab-created werewolf, this close to escaping his creators—until another of the Project’s experiments stops him in his tracks. Not because she has the power to hold him, but because he instantly recognizes the impossible. The vampiress is his mate.

Allowing her to bring him in is his only choice—and possibly the last mistake of his life.

Enemies or lovers, it doesn’t matter. When they discover that the Project is hiding yet more secrets, they must work together to bring it down...or die in the attempt.

Warning: Contains a cocky wolf who won’t take no for an answer, an ice-queen losing her cool and a pack full of hunky werewolves bent on rescue. And zombie spidermen.

But he didn’t count on his sister, Melody, making a call to Madame Eve....

A car crash two years ago left werewolf Saxon Reeves with amnesia and nightmares—but the nightmares aren’t of the crash. Instead she dreams of a soldier.

Content tracking down archaeological evidence of werewolf packs, she spends her time wearing wellingtons and covered in mud rather than looking for a date.

Yearning for a woman to see him for who he is, he lets Madame Eve make all the arrangements. No matter where he goes, as the lead singer of the world famous band, Lyric Hounds, he's always recognized...so all he expects is a night of hot sex and a quiet weekend with his music.

He never anticipates Madame Eve might find the one woman on the planet who doesn't recognise him on sight...or the one he and his wolf identify instantly as their mate. Will one night be enough for him to convince Melody she's his forever?

Driven by inhuman instincts, she tracks the newly and soon-to-be dead and dispatches their souls to the afterlife. Sometimes they go quietly, most put up a fight. She doesn’t care either way. Her ambition in life is to find her next hit of coffee and one day, maybe, sleep in a real bed again.

Then Andy’s instincts bring her to Sanctuary and its enigmatic leader, Mason, and even the world after the end of the world will never be the same again…

Warning: Contains a snarky female Reaper with a hair-trigger temper and a caffeine addiction, a hot ex-commando with an attitude and a twisted sense of humour and a happily ever after that defies death itself.

The United Terran Colonies are under attack. Desperate for pilots to combat the enemy raiders the Fleet puts out an all pilots call, hoping to fill their empty fighter squadrons. A call ignored by ex-con Radha Kaden, who figures she doesn’t owe anyone anything. Since a pilot’s life expectancy is slightly less than that of your average lemming, she steers well clear.

Then a bar brawl violates the terms of her release and she has a choice. Go back to Acheron, the harshest prison facility in the combined systems, or pilot a fighter…

Thanks to high casualty rates Wing Commander Davin McAvoy constantly needs new pilots. Dead men can’t fly Valkyries nor can they protect the base or her crew. When he’s told he’s getting that rarest of creatures—an experienced pilot—he’s ready to throw a party. Until he finds out not only is his new pilot an ex-con but she’s a woman too. Both unforgiveable sins in Davin’s book.

Until he meets her and sparks that have nothing to do with the war fly…
