Summary

The Scorching Saga of the Braggs Continues . . . 
Heiress to the magnificent Bragg empire, lovely, headstrong socialite Lucy Bragg lives a life that flies in the face of convention. Dark and rugged half-breed Shozkay Savage lives an outlaw's life on the edge. These two people inhabit different worlds--hers, opulent and privileged; his, dangerous and wild. But on the vast and sweeping plains of Texas, their worlds collide . . .  
Abducted and held for ransom, Lucy despises Shoz for his arrogance . . . yet is drawn to the strapping fugitive by a bold, unquenchable desire. Sworn to escape him but betrayed by her own reckless passion, she will follow Shoz from the unforgiving wastland of Death Valley to the tropical heat of revolution-swept Cuba--braving scandal and heartbreak, risking life itself for an untamed and blistering love as perilous as it is forbidden.

    She takes in a shuddering breath. "I want you to be my first."
     
     
     
    They grow up so fast, don't they? But when these little brats find themselves with the princes of the house, that's not the only thing that starts growing! Now they're wondering if their first time is going to be happening soon, and whether they're going to do it hard and without protection…
     
     
     
    What are you waiting for?
     
     
     
    ~~~~~ Excerpt ~~~~~
     
     
     
    It's a Saturday night. Edward and his 18-year old stepsister Faith are watching a movie together.
     
     
     
    Edward's sitting down on the couch, already on his third beer of the night.
     
     
     
    Faith's mind keeps wandering as she watches the movie. Her hand is up and she's tracing just the tips of her fingers up and down along her neck. It's sending dirty little shivers down her spine, and she knows that she shouldn't do this right next to her stepbrother, but she just can't help herself.
     
     
     
    Edward keeps thinking about sex. But not just sex…dirty, naughty sex. Bits and pieces of what he likes have been dipping their heads in and out. Taboo thoughts. Sex with people he knows and trusts, people he would never consider having sex with before. He's been thinking about being naughty…and he knows just who he wants to be naughty with.
     
     
     
    "Whoops," Faith says, dropping some of their snack onto the floor.
     
     
     
    She and Edward get up and search for the food, but it's underneath the couch.
     
     
     
    "Damn it," Faith says when they both stand up. "Should we move the couch and get it?"
     
     
     
    "Nah," Edward says with a shrug. "We can clean it up tomorrow."
     
     
     
    Faith smiles up at her stepbrother, and he smiles back down at her.
     
     
     
    Edward feels disappointed in himself. Looking at his stepsister just now, thinking about her…he can't sexualize her like how he's been doing. It's wrong. It's insulting to her. She's not like that -- at least, he's pretty sure she's not. And she probably wouldn't appreciate knowing that her stepbrother has had to jerk off to the thought of her before.
     
     
     
    Yep, it's got to stop here, and that's all there is to that.
     
     
     
    "Hey Edward," Faith says to her stepbrother. "I want to tell you something."
     
     
     
    "What's that, kiddo?" Edward says.
     
     
     
    Faith takes a breath and lets it out.
     
     
     
    "I want to have a baby," she says, and Edward blinks down at his stepsister. "I've been thinking about it for a long time and I want to have a baby."
     
     
     
    "Wow," Edward says. "That's quite a decision."
     
     
     
    "I know," Faith says, looking up at him. "And now all I need is for someone to be the father."
     
     
     
    Faith licks her lips. Edward's eyes drop for a second to watch this before returning back to her. Faith takes in a breath and is surprised to feel it shudder in her mouth.
     
     
     
    "Do you want to kiss me?" she asks, her voice barely above a whisper. Edward is slow with his response, and he licks his own lips as well before parting them, speaking his reply:
     
     
     
    "Yes."

    Bartender Tony Gemetti has it all: a rich, hot boyfriend, a McMansion in the 'burbs and unlimited sex in an expectation-free zone. He thought that was all he ever wanted out of any relationship—until Jack begins making excuses for frequent disappearances. Realizing he has more than his libido and enough drawers for his T-shirt collection riding on this relationship, Tony figures it's time to find out what's going on. Jack Noble has spent his life hiding his real self behind a carefully created image. With Tony, he finally knows real freedom, real happiness. Now a past of buried secrets and lies is closing in, and no matter how hard he tries to stop it, the truth is tearing through. Once Tony learns what kind of man Jack really is, he won't stay. Jack's sure of it. Suddenly the past shows up in a completely unexpected way, testing the boundaries of their old, coasting-along-on-fun relationship. Tony indeed finds that Jack isn't the man he went looking for, but it's too late. There's too much at stake to just walk away. First, though, he has to make sure there are no lies left for Jack to hide behind. Warning: Readers should be free of any heart condition that may be affected by a hero with an overactive imagination, painful back stories, and hot sex in a variety of athletic positions. Neither the author nor the publisher is responsible for any sudden or frequent urges to have children with Tony Gemetti.

    Love doesn't come with a syllabus. Kelly Davidson has waited what seems like forever to graduate high school and get out of his small-minded, small town. But when he arrives at Hope University, he quickly realizes finding his Prince Charming isn't so easy. Everyone here is already out. In fact, Kelly could be the only virgin on campus. Worst of all, he's landed the charming, handsome, gay campus Casanova as a roommate, whose bed might as well be equipped with a revolving door. Walter Lucas doesn't believe in storybook love. Everyone is better off having as much fun as possible with as many people as possible...except his shy, sad little sack of a roommate is seriously screwing up his world view. As Walter sets out to lure Kelly out of his shell, staying just friends is harder than he anticipated. He discovers love is a crash course in determination. To make the grade, he'll have to finally show up for class...and overcome his own private fear that love was never meant to last. Warning: This story contains lingering glances, milder than usual sexual content for this author, and a steamy dance-floor kiss. Story has no dairy or egg content, but may contain almonds.
