There's only one thing Josh loves more than his music — Maddie Page. Maddie began as his guitar teacher, but soon grew to be his best friend. But because of Maddie's insistence they remain only friends, he's had to content himself with expressing his passions through the chords and riffs of his guitar, and pursuing his dream of leading his rock band to fame and fortune. No woman has ever come close to making him feel the way Maddie does and, inevitably, his dating relationships end in failure.
Then Dawson Kidd strides into his life. Tall and lean, with a Down Under accent and a dramatic flair for rock and roll, Dawson cajoles his way into Josh's band — and his bed. Confused and frightened by his feelings for Dawson, Josh runs to Maddie for comfort and support. But Maddie is struggling with her own demons and her reaction to his news is unexpected — and passionate.
Suddenly Josh finds himself with two lovers and a decision that tears at his heart and soul.
Joss has given up. Two years of chasing after her estranged husband and the daughter he kidnapped, and she's finally resigned herself to the inevitable. Her ex is too smart and too rich to be caught. But when she returns home to find comfort and rejuvenation, she finds someone who needs hope even more than she.
Caleb has lost everything. After ten years of married bliss and two beautiful children, a tragic accident has left him desolate and alone. He throws himself into his career and empty sex in order to forget his grief and guilt. When his wife's friend Joss appears in his life, he is ill-prepared for his reaction to her and her situation.
An unexpected tip from an informant in Italy sends them off to Florence in search of Joss' daughter. Strangely, the possibility of reuniting Joss with her daughter gives Caleb new hope. And the whirlwind trip, full of adventure, deceit and passion, also gives them an opportunity to discover things about themselves and each other that could change their lives forever.

Alec Frechette and Kira North shared the ultimate loss-the death of their child. The pain of that loss drove them apart and left them to face mind-numbing grief alone.
Working as a bodyguard for the past seven years, Alec has sought comfort in the arms of some of the wealthiest and most beautiful women in Europe. As a nurse, Kira has sought solace in caring for others. However, the healing is incomplete.
When at last Alec has his fill of every man's fantasy, he returns home to confront his demons-to confront Kira's wrath and accusations. And in so doing hopefully put his grief-and his ghosts-to rest.
But even as Alec and Kira struggle through the layers of anger and resentment, their fragile world is threatened. A serial rapist has been terrorizing Ottawa, and when another young woman is brutally murdered, Alec becomes the prime suspect. Suddenly Kira finds herself fighting to protect the man she has spent seven years hating. Drawn into a web of lies and deceit, she realizes that Alec isn't the only man in her life who isn't at all what she believes him to be.
