As an FBI agent, Josh Barnes believed he’d seen it all--until he meets Jennifer. She’s smart, sassy, gorgeous, and running for her life, but from whom, Josh has yet to figure out. Her story of an ex-husband is a lie. The truth about who is after her and why is even more unbelievable. Unfortunately, the danger of her situation does nothing to stop the lust that ignites every time they get close to one another.
Josh is a Dom and Jennifer an innocent in the ways of BDSM. He has no business introducing her to his dark world of bondage, domination, and kinky sex, especially when the people after Jennifer could find her at any moment. But Josh can’t resist the pull and finds, to his delight, that Jennifer is excited by his slightly unorthodox sexual appetites.
Needing to put an end to the danger stalking his new sub, Josh comes up with a plan. Turn the tables and make the hunters the prey. The trick will be putting their plan into motion, before they’re found, because Josh has already lost his heart to Jennifer and the burning desire that rages between them.
FBI agents Grayson and Parker have a very strange mental connection, which is a side effect of the spell their twin mothers put on them when they were young. Whatever one feels the other does as well. Which is great for knowing when one is in trouble or hurt. Not so great when it comes to women.
Cheyenne has found herself in a mess. As witness to the torture and murder of an undercover FBI agent, she has no choice but to go into witness protection. While in hiding with Parker and Grayson, she’ll find out some interesting things about herself and her unusual sexual desires.
Performing open heart surgery? Piece of cake. Taking on two men at once? Much more fun than she ever imagined.

Now he only has Three Wicked Days to prove to Kayla that he wants more than just a vacation fling. Come along for the fun in Trista Ann Michaels’ new, wonderfully passionate romance.
When Kayla’s job as a flight attendant leaves her stuck in a tropical paradise for three days, she should be ecstatic. Instead, she has to work even harder to avoid Steve, the gorgeous pilot she’s always refused to even give the time of day to because of his reputation. Steve’s womanizing ways strike too close to home, and Kayla refuses to let her lust override his reputation.
Steve has had the hots for Kayla from the day he first laid eyes on her, but he hasn’t found a way to get past the cold shoulder she always seems to have just for him. He hopes their unexpected vacation will give him the chance he needs to show her he’s not the man she thinks he is.
When they finally acknowledge their mutual physical desire, they agree to a tropical fling to get each other out of their system. They’ll have three days with no emotions involved and no strings attached, and then it’s back to their normal lives.
Kayla is intent on holding up her end of the bargain, but for Steve, it’s much harder. When he begins to suspect his feelings run deeper than just physical attraction, he has to figure out how to convince her that the rumors about him aren’t true and that he can be the man she needs.
