Taryn Leigh Taylor likes dinosaurs, bridges, and space, both personal and of the final frontier variety. She shamelessly indulges in cliches, most notably her Starbucks addiction (grande-six-pump-whole-milk-no-water chai tea latte, aka: the usual), her shoe hoard (I can stop anytime I...ooh! These are pretty!), and her penchant for falling in lust with fictional men with great abs (yum!)
She also really loves books, which is what sent her down the crazy path of writing one in the first place.

She’s sweet as sin
…and he’s twice as wicked!
Bombshell burlesque performer Kaylee Whitfield has perfected the art of the tease—especially when deliciously gorgeous Aidan Beckett is watching. Of course Aidan has no idea that she’s his ex-bestie’s little sister, or that he broke Kaylee’s teenage heart. It was supposed to be one sexy—and secret—tryst. But Kaylee has a few things to learn about searingly hot temptation...and risking her heart.
Emma Mathison has lusted after her steely-eyed boss for years. When she turns in her notice, their explosive attraction goes from off-limits to very hands-on!
Two words make me lose control. Yes, sir. When Emma Mathison shows up in my office on her last day of work, my former employee goes from all business to all seductress. It amuses me at first…until one kiss kindles an all-consuming need for her.
The flicker of chemistry between us was banned the moment she signed her contract with Whitfield Industries three years ago. She’s a free agent now, though. And when she lounges on my desk that night, crimson-lipped, blouse undone, tempting me to give in, I do. Our red-hot night of passion turns to ice the next day when I discover my company has been hacked from the inside…and all signs point to my irresistible ex-employee.
I can’t let the only viable suspect get away so easily. She denies any involvement, but I’ll find the mole who betrayed me…even if it means an up-close and personal investigation with Emma. This fiery new version of her ignites me. She defies me—and entices me—at every turn. Yet she’s hiding something. I just need to get close enough to figure out what…and not get burned.
“Dare is Harlequin’s hottest line yet. Every book should come with a free fan. I dare you to try them!”
The stakes are high when you’re playing for keeps...
Pro hockey player Eric Jacobs should be focused on rehabbing his knee and getting back on the ice where he belongs. Then his grandmother sells the family bakery without telling him, and the gloves come off. He’s not losing his childhood home without a fight—but the new owner is proving as stubborn as she is gorgeous, and it’s throwing him off his game.
Rebecca Callahan is searching for her passion, and she’s determined not to let her lack of baking experience stand in the way of making her new business a success. Especially not with the former owner’s handsome grandson just waiting for her to fail. If she’s going to make him eat his words, she needs to keep her mind on the bakery and stop imagining Eric’s sexy abs as dessert.
As Rebecca and Eric face off in a battle of wills, will giving into the heat between them be a recipe for disaster or the icing on the cupcake?

Kiss and Makeup by Taryn Leigh Taylor
Makeup artist Chloe Masterson has a look for every occasion. Flying home for her sister’s wedding and family torture calls for sarcastic wit and black eyeliner.

But as their lies begin to snowball, Chloe and Ben find it harder and harder to distinguish between what’s real and what’s all just smoky eyes and mirrors.
