They're sassy, sexy and sporting tiaras. They're also raucous, ribald, and outrageous when they get together for goblets of mead and an afternoon's bitching. You know their names—they rose to fame as heroines who sought their Happily-Ever-Afters. And found them.

Of course, Happily Ever After is actually anywhere from eternity to three months and an annulment, if you've got a good lawyer and were smart enough to get a pre-nup. These six Princesses are just regular gals beneath the tulle and diamonds and they love to dish the dirt. When Aurora gets a publishing contract, they all decide to reveal the truth behind those beloved fairy tales; the lace gloves come off and the delicate fantasies are ripped away, revealing the shocking facts, the sexy adventures and the erotic passions beneath the surface.

It's down and dirty in a royal sort of way, complete with Princes who aren't so charming, blacksmiths, porn stars and bean stalks. Not to mention seven vertically challenged dudes, a guy with squeaky slippers and a pair of binoculars...well, you'd better read it and find out. But be warned...these words will never have quite the same meaning...

Redefining room service…

The Zephyre Corporation’s annual convention may be designed to let colleagues kick back in the Florida sun, but Riley McGuire doesn’t plan to let anything interfere with her chance to shine for corporate management. Not even the devastatingly sexy guy playing air guitar—naked—in her hotel suite.

Oliver Wilson expected to share a deluxe suite with what he assumed was an amiable Irish-American beer drinker, not an acid-tongued Boston beauty who can’t hold her liquor.

Their agreement to muddle through is shot to hell by a tug of attraction that, in the convention’s decadent atmosphere, grows too strong to resist. Oliver discovers there’s more going on under Riley’s suits than good marketing ideas. And Oliver’s gentlemanly teasing gets under Riley’s skin…in a sexy way. 

Behind closed doors, lust explodes between the sheets. But is a pair of vibrating panties a temporary pleasure, or the start of something that doesn’t require batteries?

Warning: Please check with your hotel concierge to ask if the handsome naked man playing air guitar comes with the room. There may be an extra surcharge not covered under federal business reimbursement regulations. Be sure to tip the bellboy.

Old Louisiana and mansions - they go together like latte and beignets on the banks of the Mississippi. For Louis Beekman, his inheritance is a challenge and a delight, since Love Alley is a prime example of early architecture and he plans to restore it to its former glory. He didn't count on it already being occupied - by things he sooo doesn't believe in. No, sir. Not him.

Cory Lavalle has the "sight" and when Louis calls, she goes to Love Alley to help him understand the forces at work in his new home. Together they find adventure and mystery along with an explosive mutual attraction. Hand in hand, they step back into the past and learn secrets long hidden, enticed by the heat of Old Louisiana, where lovers were parted and the future is only a kiss away.

Is their newfound love strong enough to send lost spirits to their final rest? Will those playful specters stop moving Louis's toolbox around? What's with those twins? And above all, can desire finally silence the Whispers in the Dark...?

Ownership comes with a price. Make sure you’re prepared to pay it.

Friends with benefits? Eric and Lauren are definitely that. A Friday night, a hotel, and a night of hot, satisfying sex. That’s it. Recently, though, Eric finds himself wanting more. More time, more fun, more Lauren.

Trouble is, she’s all tied up in her career, totally uninterested in getting tied down. How will she react when he musters up the guts to ask her for what he really wants: her to be completely his for one weekend. To let him own her, body and soul.

Lauren is sure Eric is just overthinking their strictly casual relationship. Still, the thought of doing exactly what he wants, whenever and wherever he wants, intrigues her. What’s not to like about letting go, handing everything over to a man she trusts in every way?

Their getaway is more sensual, more daring, more perfect than either of them anticipated. Until that most feared of emotions raises its head and takes aim at their hearts.

Warning: Contains references to ownership, domination and complete submission; extra panties may be required, along with ice. This is not a book about training your pets, so treats and squeaky toys are not necessary, unless you’re into that...

Book 3 in the Partners in Passion series.

A woman in the throes of passion, bound by leather and submitting to the fire of her desires. It's a photo that captures something deep inside Tracy Harmon as she stares at it, spellbound by the intensity and the heat it conveys. Beside her at the art exhibit, a handsome stranger also finds himself stunned by the image — and fascinated by Tracy. George Cluny decides he wants that photo and goes in search of the photographer, a buddy of his by the name of Marcus.

Lured out of town by a phone call, coincidence reunites George and Tracy at a quiet country inn. Their mutual attraction rises, helped along by a private "event" taking place out of the public eye. A BDSM gathering, a couple of silk scarves and the stage is set for them to enter a heated world of dominance and submission, promising more than the simple sexual experiences they've known up to now.

Just the whisper of his name brings shivers of desire to the women who have met him. The Dark Lord. A mysterious being who fulfills their deepest passions, their most sensual and erotic dreams.

Journalist Alyson Mendez has heard about him and stolen something—his medallion. She will use it to summon him, but not for her sexual pleasure. She wants a story, a front-page scoop on this man of many magical talents. What she gets is much more than an interview.

Defying her preconceived notions of space and time, the Dark Lord shows her times and places — and lovers. He reveals the extent of his powers, makes her shudder at the passions he reveals then surprises her even more. Prepared for his sexuality, Alyson is nevertheless astounded to find herself adrift on a wave of emotional intensity as this strange being shares secrets known to none but himself. It's a journey both exquisite and painful, a voyage into a world of desires Alyson could never have imagined. And a glimpse into the past, present and future of the Dark Lord — his Origins.

Note: The Dark Lord was originally introduced in the story Dark Lust.
