This is a race against time. Against oneself. This is the Vendée Globe, the most grueling race around the world. Singlehanded. No stopovers. On board is Laurel Benson-Desmarais, a thirty-six-year-old racer from a family of sailors. Five foot and a quarter inch of pure adrenaline junkie. One hundred and forty-seven pounds of thrill-seeking, motor-mouth, caffeine-addict of a woman who redefines the word “stubborn determination”.
Laurel’s venture starts admirably. Day one of the race sees her well in advance. Until the meteorological forecasts start messing with her patience. The mother of all storms is gathering speed. Heading straight for the race. For the first time in its history, theVendée Globe is annulled due to bad weather. She’s worked years for this but has to turn the boat around. She’s not fast enough. The storm catches up with her, tosses the 60-foot sloop as if it were a bit of cork. Electricity crackles in the air. Spray hits her like rocks. Then as she pitches into a mountain-size wave, everything changes. The water, the very air. As if she crossed over to another world. Crazy.
Phineas Hamilton, captain of the brigantine the Brass Baron, never thought he would one day run into a woman who physically looks like the enemy, with pale hair and eyes, but yet is not one of them. The exotic prisoner is also the most obstinate, argumentative, confrontational…and fascinating woman he has ever met. He does not really care where she hails from and what brought her to his ship—no one speaks to him that way. And certainly not on his own damn ship! A lesson in manners is most definitely in order. But for now, he must make sure his crew and ship survives the latest enemy attack. They all depend on him. Another link to the long chain he carries.
To My Readers: Dashing pirates, odious villains and mouthy heroines fight for survival in this momentous steampunk story. I pulled out all the stops for this one. For those unfamiliar with this awesome genre, steampunk is a delightful mix of Victorian aesthetics and oh-so-shiny fantastical machines.

His fall from grace came in the year 117 A.D. Cursed for the last two thousand years, Gaius roams the earth, always one heartbeat ahead of his own personal hell, but always a step behind salvation. Until an irreverent, modern woman crashes through his defenses and teaches him to never give up. Unfortunately, hope always comes with a price.
A curse. A wicked blade. A heartbroken priestess with ancient Egyptian powers. These are the ingredients in Nathalie Gray's latest wild ride, a paranormal erotic thriller about a Roman man locked in a 2,000-year-old death match with the woman he once wronged. Gaius sees no way to break the curse until Anne-Marie, a catburglar with a good eye for antiquities, steals the very artifact he and the priestess both crave. But Anne-Marie possesses more than just light fingers and a spine of steel. She alone can enlighten Gaius and break the dark curse. But only if Gaius is willing to let her risk her own life in the process.
Heartless. It will make you breathless.
*Here's what Nathalie has to say about the inspiration behind this exciting story.
"I’ve always been interested by curses. Not the words (well...), but the power of a person’s hate. I’ve always wondered, what if a curse took shape, followed its target everywhere it went. A tailor made hell. This is such a story. Gaius did a bad thing two millennia ago and is still living his punishment. When Anne-Marie stumbles into him, she can’t resist trying to help this handsome stranger with the wounded eyes. But the curse isn’t done with Gaius. Not by a long shot."

Now that she’s finally found him, she has to hide her true self, lie and cheat. Former special ops soldier Ripley Knight is everything she wants, all that she craves. His demanding hands conquer all her defenses and his mouth—that wicked thing—denudes her every secret. No pleasure is beyond his skill and no decadence too great. In exchange, all Rip wants is the one thing she can’t give. Truth.
Amidst the torrid Floridian wilderness and carnival season, with dangers coming at her from every quarter, Rayne will learn that only Rip can help her. Only he can douse the inferno.

Alexandra Novona has been called many things. Soldier. Enemy. Bodyguard. Bitch. Her body's been through enough refits to trip every metal detector in the system. But nowadays, she's what is politely referred to as a "privateer". A new tag for an old job—slaver.
On the Femme Metal, a tough, ugly-as-hell little ship, she prowls deep space procuring males. Human or alien. She doesn't much care. As long as they generate profit. And nothing will stop her from supplying her wealthy customers with top-grade male specimens for their brothel ships. Not even the seven-foot, blue-skinned, silver-haired wonder her customer very specifically requested. Unfortunately for Alex, she hadn't counted on the gorgeous Yithian being a Hunter or how her own attractiveness and desirability could get her and her crew into hot water.
Sekmeth Meroh always gets his prey. For an exorbitant fee, he will catch anyone, of any race, on any world. He's the best of his kind—a Hunter—and sneaky to boot. Sekmeth's latest assignment—capture Alexandra Novona and her all female crew for a brothel ship near his own home world.

Once a year, during the peak of the Carnivale di Venezia, a gate opens onto an ephemeral world of decadence, a world peopled with demons, masqueraded lovers and assassins, a world where a mask can hide much more than a face.
Lumere's timeless realm is rife with lust, debauchery and excess of all kinds, yet he is empty, the lone sentinel guarding the gate between the worlds. Keeper of Time itself. But when he encounters a mortal female named Jasmine, whose spirit is a shining beacon bright enough to light the deepest pit in his heart, he cannot resist. Despite the threat his brethren pose to the fragile balance, he embarks with Jasmine on a journey of unbridled carnality to rival the Renaissance's halcyon days. Together, they travel to the edge — edge of pleasure, of trust.
Unfortunately, Lumere is not the only demon with an eye for Jasmine.
My name is A.J. and I'm a lawyer — one despicable even among my kind. They don't call me The Shark for nothing. I got into big trouble once and it started like this…
After my plane crashed in the Alps, I woke in the middle of a medieval fair. No problem so far. I can get to a phone and call for help, right? Wrong. I should've suspected something was odd when I asked for a phone and everyone looked at me funny.
Within days, I went from twenty-first century North America to medieval Switzerland, from snazzy designer suit to scratchy wool and from blissful bachelordom to pretend marriage just so the local tyrant leaves my delicious hostess alone. That's when things started to go seriously wrong. My "wife" is a lovely lady and if I want to defend her honor — which I do — I must fight Lord Asshole in a duel. But all I'm good at is arguing, sex and golf. Since I can't very well use the first two, all I have is one option.
Ever seen a duel between a sword and a nine iron? It's one hell of a show!

That's what he tells himself as he rushes to the rendezvous point, pumped and ready to break heads. Then he meets "Ballistic Kim" and everything goes south.
A species created by man to serve and obey. But we made a mistake…we gave it fangs.
We designed them for our use. To wage our greedy wars, toil in our poisonous lunar mines. We made them pleasing to the eye so our children would not have nightmares, tall and strong and smart so they would adapt to environments never meant to sustain life. We thought we had created the perfect sub-species. Obedient. Disposable. How wrong we were.

His world is a cold, desolate one that has never been touched by grace or light until a hot-tempered woman, a human, marches into his life, his home and his guarded heart. Through Dawn's dry humor and passionate embrace, he learns to trust again and to love. But just as he starts to hope, she is stolen from him. With his light gone, all that is left is darkness and revenge.
They took the one thing he loved and Helios will stop at nothing to get Dawn back. Even damn his eternal, vampire soul.
